I need you to settle a debate. Personally and theoretically do vegetarian/vegan men make better lovers? I have one friend who is convinced of this – particularly within the context of the entire experience. Her argument is that they “taste” better, smell better, can get it up at the drop of a dime, and have incredible stamina. I’m leery about this but then again I don’t know. I know the answer may be nuanced but I’m curious about your thoughts.
To his and my surprise, I actually haven’t had sex with a vegetarian or vegan man (or woman). But I have heard similar reports of vegetarian and vegan men holding it down in the bedroom. As all stereotypes have truths and exceptions, I wanted to dive deeper into the hype surrounding vegetarian and vegan male lovers. What does the research say? Do they really “taste” better? Have less body odor? Get it up on request? And keep it up for their partner’s pleasure? Let’s explore the truths and exceptions to these mystical non-meat-eating lovers.
When it comes to semen, it is true that a man’s diet impacts its taste. The more alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and drugs that he consumes, the more bitter and polluted his semen will become. But for vegetarian men in particular, they have the benefit of not having red meat in their diets, which often can cause semen to taste salty. Dairy has been reported to have similar effects. But that doesn’t make the non-meat diet the perfect solution to delicious, edible male secretions. Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and cabbage aren’t always the best ingredients for semen. But fruits that are high in natural sugars, such as pineapple, mangoes, and melons help with offsetting bitterness and increasing sweetness.
What about the funk? What you put in your body impacts the odor that comes out.
