or: where does the salty-bitter taste of sperm stem from?
Personally, I really like cum. Initially my relationship with it was difficult, though. I have been brought up in a rather liberal household, but also had a very protected childhood and was defintevely a late bloomer in pretty much everything. (I was and still am really shy in front of others!)
Today I don’t want to talk about my relationship with cum (I’ll do that another day), but about cum in general and about what it actually is.
Because I really didn’t know anything about sperm until maybe 22 years! However, in the last 4 -5 years I’ve seen plenty of it 🙂
So I’ll just present some facts from this day´s research.
Typical features of cum:
- (External) Appearance: milky, transparent-cloudy, mainly white.
- PH value: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PH) (PH indicates whether it’s acidic / basic)… 7.0 -7.8 = neither acidic nor basic!
- Odor: sweetish-spicy, evoked by the prostate
- Taste: variable, salty-bitter to sweetish note (depends heavily on nutrition, I can tell!)
- Average volume: 2-6 ml.
And now, Dr Constance talks science!
Sperm consists of…
Cum is a combination of ripe spermatozoen and the secretions of the accessory sex glands (according to Wikipedia…). The secretions are also called seed plasm. The exact composition is as follows:
- 0.5 % sperm (40 – 900 mln spermatozoa)
- 95 % seed liquid
The seed plasm is composed of the following:
- 65-75%: fructose, such as Nutrients (to liquefy + for nutrition); Prostaglandins (to stimulate the endometrium, infectious-inhibiting) from the seminal vesicles to
- 10-30%: milky, ion-containing liquid with pH = 6.4 (slightly acidic, relevant for mobility) and white blood cells (infection by HIV) from the prostate
- 2-5%: muco-clear fluid (pre-cum) to neutralize the chemical environment of the urinary and vaginal opening from the Cowper’s gland.
- 3-5% Spermatozoa and testosterone which mostly stem from the testicles and epididymis.
I had no idea science can be so sexy!
What are the special features of sperm?
- the hormones in semen have been shown in studies to influence positively the mood of sex partners ( ;)))) )
- Sperm can contain and transmit HI or hepatitis B viruses; although the infection rate is much lower the risk should not be underestimated in comparison to a blood transfusion!
- sperm has fluorescent properties: it is visible under UV light (yes, I watch CSI!)
Now, let’s talk real science:
What factors influence the taste of semen?
Main influencing factors are the polyamine spermine contained in sperm (and that’s genetics) and the man’s diet.
I found that fruit and vegetables combined with much water will be significantly better than dairy and meat. ( I still love it, even though he ate way too much meat ❤ . )
I also found that Mark’s sperm tastes less good if he hasn’t had an ejaculation in a while. So, in my humble opinion, his sperm tastes much better if he cums regularly (I make sure that this happens :p)
What are your thoughts about cum?
Write me a comment and I’ll get back at you!
Also, since you already are here 🙂 I put a very comprehensive How-To together, for all the people out there who want to get in domestic discipline…
There are chapters on the lifestyle and introducing it, living life in the lifestyle, a detailed description of tools, and much more… Each chapter contains valuable tips and habits that you can apply to your life. I wrote this book because there are no such books out there (!), and … we have developed our relationship with Domestic Discipline so far, that I now consider myself as an expert 🙂
… write me you like it !
