Confession: A Taste of One’s Own

Max, one of our Wise Guys, has a confession to make:

Ladies, face it: After a blow job, your average man would like you to swallow his seed, plain and simple. Whether that’s because of pride, practicality or a penchant for raunchiness may vary from guy to guy, but a lover’s choice of spitting over swallowing is something that almost all men take quite personally. Do we taste that bad? Do we disgust you? Aren’t you into us?

I was not surprised then when I recently heard a chef at my restaurant bemoaning the fact that his lady, despite her willingness to perform certain acts, would not ingest the spoils of her apparent victory. The cook simply could not understand why she wouldn’t swallow it after it had already been in her mouth.

Now, most men who work in a kitchen have a high tolerance for all that is salacious, perverted, even gross — much higher than your average citizen. So it was natural then for me to wonder whether my disgruntled chef had himself tasted his own “love juice.” After all, if he objected to a woman not devouring something that he produced (a touchy subject for any chef), he himself must have been brave enough to taste test all that came out of his kitchen.

“Have you ever tasted your own?” I asked.

For the first time in any kitchen that I’ve ever worked, everyone went silent. They stared at me, their faces contorted in disgust. I saw then that, even if any of them had, their homophobic instincts would not allow them to admit that they had tasted any man’s semen, even if it was just their own.

I, on the other hand, had to come clean. I told them that not only had I tasted my own, but that it was not, in fact, all that bad. I suggested that maybe they should do the same before they started preaching the virtues of swallowing over the sins of spitting. (I also briefly considered highlighting the fact that the taste of one’s semen is dictated by one’s diet and that, in light of the sheer amount of junk food and booze the majority of them consumed daily, their sexual partners might have had good reason to spit; but I decided this blow was literally below the belt). They, in turn, have decided that I am far stranger than they had originally thought and, since I beat them at their own game of sexual one-upmanship, treat me with a bit more respect than before.

Still, the fact that most men are uncomfortable even discussing the idea of tasting their own ejaculate amuses and confuses me. I’ve heard those same cooks obsess over the joys of anal sex, “doing” women on their periods, and having their girlfriends slip a finger in their bums during a blow job, and yet something so standard as their own come is too much for them? Isn’t the idea of feces and menstrual blood a bit more concerning?

Gentlemen, face it: we are being ignorant. We can’t handle the heat and yet we practically live in the kitchen. It’s time to try new things. I know this might be hard to swallow, but every woman who has gone down on you has gotten a taste, and I think that it is now up to us to share the load.

Hehehehehehe, women love oral sex given to them including their juices being in a man’s mouth and face but a man doing the same is really a huge leap even though it is the same act.


I dated for many a year until I finally found a woman who swallowed. It was an awesome feeling for me — quite the egotrip. A few years later I met my wife. She’s not a swallower — just not her thing, and I respect that. On the other hand, one rather fun weekend we both discovered that she REALLY enjoyed having me go down on her after we had sex. So… you know…. its a matter of timing I suppose.


I think the thing that really makes swallowing the preferred method is that the male ejaculation in an “ongoing thing.” In my younger days it would sometimes include 3 or 4 spurts to complete. So, I naturally wouldn’t want to extract myself from the woman’s mouth while this was happening, and she had to swallow and breathe in the process. Then there is also the fact that finishing things off with a stroke of the hand is a sorry follow up to the warmth and softness of a woman’s lips and tongue.

I have tasted my own for many years. In my late teens I was flexible enough to actually touch my lips to the tip, in the shower for “direct injection”. I have no major objection to the spit or swallow choice, although swallow is preferred. My objection is to letting go before I am finished, which is what I put up with. Kissing after? I love it, you’ve already tasted it, let me taste it too. Ladies, how about if we go have a big spit after pleasuring you, or better yet, stop just before you have your pleasure and… Read more »

I always have and always will swallow…It is a personal preference though… no mess to clean up afterwards! I had to beg my ex-husband to let me go down there… He is my ex now… LOL


I have been with my husband many years. On this point we worked together. He pulled me away at first, then as time went by we talked and he said yes it would be better if I swallowed. So my only concession was if I were in total control. He needless to say abliged me on this point. He said it made him feel yucky and nastey and I did not want that. My advice is talk to your partner and work it out together. It only makes the experience better.


great post. I think he’s a hero. More people need to start doing little things like that to challenge these arbitrary sexual taboos. I like anyone brave and free enough to do something that most people won’t even speak of.
