Diet: I took the time to do as much research on this as I could. Apparently sperm and the genitals which have a tendency to be sweaty during the sexual experience odor/ taste is influenced by the individuals diet. The more meat intake, the more ammonia smelling/taste. More fruit and vegetables, the more aromatic and pleasant. Range of cents/taste was from popcorn, almonds, salty, to bland. Equivalent comments reflecting the vagina and vaginal secretion
