If you ask ten people “What does vagina taste like?” you might get ten different answers. We asked 48, (and you can skip straight to their descriptions). While it might not seem helpful to say that it varies, it really does vary. If you’re wondering whether yours tastes okay or curious what it might taste like to go down on another woman, we can provide some insight, however.
No, It’s Not Fishy
Jokes comparing the smell or taste of a vagina to something a little fishy are immature and don’t show a great understanding of the human vagina. A fishy scent or taste is usually due to an infection such as bacterial vaginosis. A healthy vagina shouldn’t smell or taste fishy — and it rarely does!
However, some people might spread misinformation like this because they don’t want to go down on a woman, because of a misogynistic attitude or because they’ve actually never been near enough to a vagina to tell what one tastes like!

Hygiene Affects Taste
If you’ve got a strong scent, you probably taste stronger, too. Note that we’re not saying bad. It’s just that your natural musk might have increased.

This means women who haven’t showered for a while, just finished up a workout or live in warm climates and sweat more are more likely to smell and taste stronger. This could skew to the negative side, but it doesn’t have to.
Ladies, you’ve probably noticed if you felt a little more “ripe” than usual. It happens. A shower is all you need to freshen up, but wet wipes will do in a pinch.
Of course, this doesn’t just affect women. Men can get a little rank, too, which you’ll notice when you’re going down on a guy who is in need of a shower (and some men rarely take the time to scrub between all the folds).
A Clean, Healthy Vagina Tastes Good
Speaking of, how should a woman cleanse? No soap or product containing chemicals should ever be inserted vaginally. Your vagina is a delicate ecosystem that is easily thrown out of whack. Normally, a vagina is self-cleaning (hello, vaginal discharge). But when the pH becomes unbalanced, it could lead to an infection and unpleasant odors or taste.
This is why some women stay away from bubble baths or bath bombs. They might smell and look pretty, but they contain chemicals that aren’t necessarily vagina-friendly.
Instead, only water is needed to rinse your vagina, and you should stick to unscented, gentle soap in your vaginal area also known as the vulva (get a refresher course on your vaginal anatomy).
Don’t be afraid to really get between the folds, albeit gently. Move your labia and even clitoral hood to rinse with water. Then, make sure to dry completely.
When it comes time to get dressed, choose fabrics that are natural and breathable. If your vulva can’t breathe, it’s less likely to be a tasty treat.
Even lightly-scented products such as body wash, lotion or wet wipes can make your vagina taste like those products. Although, that might be preferable to some of the unpleasant things people report vagina has tasted like.

That’s quite a variety of ways to describe what a vagina tastes like! Obviously, every woman tastes different. We all have different body chemistries, after all. And the same woman can taste different in her lifetime. Now, let’s learn how to change how you taste.
Your Cycle and Your Taste
You’ve probably noticed how your scent changes during your cycle. When you have your period, your smell is obviously more metallic and coppery because of the blood. But cycle affects smell even when you’re not menstruating.
Try paying attention to the way your vagina smells during different points of your cycle — ovulation and menstruation are just two — to see if you can notice a difference. Your taste is likely different during these times, too!
Can You Change How Your Vagina Tastes?
Urban legend says that eating pineapple will improve the taste of a man’s cum; although, that may not be true. Can a woman eat something to change how her vagina tastes?
Unless you eat a lot of certain foods, it’s unlikely to change how your vagina tastes. Pungent foods like garlic or onion could change your flavor, but they might not. There’s no easy fix.
Note that some medication can change the smell and taste of your body and bodily fluids. Mucinex, Metformin, and Cystagon are three of those products, and you might want to avoid products containing sulfur/sulfides if you know someone is going down on you in the near future. Of course, it’s not just the taste of your vagina that might be affected. The smell (and taste) of your breath, skin, sweat, and urine may all change. Some people seem more prone to smell like medicine they might take or food they might eat than other people.
Another thing that helps your vagina taste good? Keeping hydrated. If you’re going down on a woman and she doesn’t taste so pleasant, there’s a chance that she isn’t drinking enough water. Hydrating means that any odor will likely smell less pungent as it will be somewhat diluted.
We can recommend flavored lube if you’re just not a fan of the way your partner tastes or if the person going down on you isn’t a fan. Look for lube without sugar, which may contribute to yeast infections.
Now, you may be a straight woman who has no interest in going down on another woman, but that doesn’t mean you don’t wonder what a vagina tastes like. Of course, you have your own that you can use to experiment. All you need to do is insert a finger and lick or suck on it to get an idea.
You can also taste your finger or even a sex toy after you’ve masturbated. And your partner might even find this hot! Another sexy option is to kiss your man after he goes down on you. Of course, his taste will be tinged with yours, so it’s not exactly how a vagina tastes, but it gives you an idea. You might find that you like how he tastes after going down on you, it may be neutral, or you may not like it at all.
You don’t have to make a habit of it, but seeing how you taste at least once is super enlightening!
Once you know how you taste, you can rest assured if it’s pleasant or neutral. Or you might take steps to wash up before sex. Either way, you’ll need to be able to relax. Hang-ups and sexual anxiety about your body, including the way your vagina tastes, can be tricky culprits that make it hard to enjoy yourself and even orgasm.

So what does vagina taste like? There’s no single answer. But that’s part of what makes vaginas so amazing!
Orgasm Every Time. Easily. Here’s How...
I want to tell you about my friend Karen.
Karen came to me one day. She was hysterical.
She told me that her marriage was falling apart because she and her husband didn’t have satisfying sex.
Every time they were intimate, Karen was faking her orgasms. It turns out she couldn’t orgasm during sex.
She never had an orgasm in her entire life. Not one!
This left her feeling embarrassed and ashamed. And...
She completely hid this from her husband. Thankfully...
It turns out that there is a way for any woman to orgasm. Easily. And have multiple vaginal and full body orgasms during sex and masturbation.
I shared the process with Karen.
After she followed the simple process, she could barely come to terms with how...
Quickly and dramatically her sex life changed.
We met up a few months later and...
She would not stop talking about it,
“I thought I was one of those women who couldn’t orgasm. I used to think I was ‘broken’ and ‘unfixable.’ This saved my sex life, and that saved my marriage.”
Even if you currently struggle to orgasm during sex or when masturbating, this process will also work for you.
And best of all, you don’t need to do anything weird or uncomfortable to start having the best orgasms and sex of your life.
