Dear Em & Lo,
I hear if your vagina has no taste to it that means you’re healthy? My friend told me he likes to eat his girlfriend out and it’s because it’s just like water, no taste to it. He said if there is a taste to it something is wrong with the girl? My ex told me my vagina had a taste to it, he said it tasted good…but when arousing myself and masturbating I tasted myself and it taste really tangy. EVEN after showering. Should I watch what I eat more? Or should I douche more often? Or am I just fine?
What do you mean “Should I douche more often”? You shouldn’t be douching at all! That could be your problem right there! Douching throws off the natural chemical balance of your vagina, which can cause inflammation and discharge. So stop that! And cut out the bubble baths and any perfume sprays down there. Then make sure you’re eating healthy, not smoking, exercising, and hydrating. Understand that semen can make things a little funky — which is another great reason to use condoms! If there’s any chance you might have an infection, go to your gyno and bring up your concerns. Check out our detailed post about these steps, as well as Dr. Vanessa’s post on getting the vadge back on track. But please know that, like ice cream, healthy vulvas come in 31 flavors — and they’re not supposed to taste like water, they’re supposed to taste like dark, moist, musky love pops!
