(Taking a deep breath and hitching up my britches…)
Alright, first off, let me weigh in by saying that I like pussy. A LOT! Oh, and conversely speaking, I wouldn’t trust anything negative that you hear a guy say about how they smell, unless you know him well enough to be certain that he really adores the opposite sex. If he continually sprinkles his conversation with words like slut, cunt, and whore (or worse…), I would suspicious of his motives, and ignore his opinions on vaginal odor. Trust me girls, I’ve heard these guys talking when you’re not around, like in locker rooms…
Also, lesbians, who’ve only had one or two lovers, can say unkind things about the taste and smell of another woman’s vagina, if their experiences so far have been unpleasant. Those with a number of partners under their belts can tell you, not all women taste alike.
In my subjective opinion (which I also happen to believe is reflective of a majority), most clean healthy pussies smell and taste just fine. I once told a girl (who was feeling insecure about her juices), that I actually preferred the smell and taste of a woman an hour or so after she’d gotten out of the shower, and I meant it! Too soon afterwards, and she’s just tasteless. She may as well be made out of plastic or rubber. Or worse, if she’s used a scented soap or douche, she smells like a plant or something else unnatural. And scents by the way, due to the oils and/or alcohols that they are diffused in, often taste bad, or burn your tongue.
If I were a woman, I’d never douche with anything other than plain water, unless a doctor had instructed otherwise.
Another unpleasant possibility is when you have an infection. And I’m not just talking about yeast, other infections, especially common STD’s, can affect both the odor and taste and should be addressed immediately with your physician. Also, menstrual blood can smell and taste like fresh iron filings, and most humans are wired to find the smell of blood a bit off-putting. And finally, your diet in some cases can cause a less than pleasant smell or taste.
Alcohol is a rather universal solvent, second only to water, that can become infused with certain spices and herbs in your body, and carry them to your mucus membranes, via your circulatory system. If you’ve ever sat in front of someone in a movie theater, after they’ve been consuming alcohol and garlic and/or onions, you might have an appreciation for how strong that can be, especially if they haven’t brushed their teeth in a few days… Even without the addition of alcohol, certain spices can permeate the body.
Spices like ferula assafoetida (known as “Devil’s Dung”), unless properly well cooked, can have a particularly sulfurous smell and taste. It’s a bit pungent, like three-day-old armpit sweat. Its odor is so pervasive, it will contaminate other herbs stored nearby or in the same cabinet. So, if you have a sensitive lover, or a heavy date planned, watch your diet prior to the possibility of sexual activity.
I hear that a diet high in fruits (especially oranges) can make you taste uncommonly delectable. Allegedly, pumpkin pie can also make you taste particularly yummy.
Given the choice however, I’d rather smell and taste fresh pussy.
I like my smell. When I sit on the toilet, it’s my habit to lean forward and sniff my knickers, enjoying the sweetness, which varies slightly from day to day. I used to feel guilty and weird about it, but not any more. This blog (and others like it) have been gradually reassuring me over the years that pretty much anything I like to do is “normal”. Also, familiarity is never a bad thing – if anything was amiss, I’d be the first to notice.
As for other people’s coochies, I’ve only ever been up close with two. One was musky and exciting, the other had obviously been cleaned, shaved and prepared for action. It was boring.
