The thought of a nasty smell or taste down there makes some ladies break out in a cold sweat. Especially when they are just about to start a physical heart-to-heart. Of course, keeping your intimate area clean and healthy adds to a pleasant taste and smell. But there are more things to consider. I was surprised when a doctor told me that anything you eat or drink has an effect, whether it’s negative or positive, on the smell and taste of your intimate parts.
Here’s how it works. Our body digests everything we eat and drink. The foods and drinks makes their way from our stomach to our blood flow. Through the blood it reaches our glands; sweat glands, the prostate and the glands in and around your vagina. There are some foods that can cause an unpleasant odor in your intimate parts. Even foods that are basically healthy for us like broccoli and garlic can cause un unpleasant smell. Red meat and dairy also cause a smelly vagina. And last, smoking and alcohol affect the smell and taste of your intimate parts negatively.
And now the good news. Tasty and fresh fruits like citrus, pineapple, watermelon, strawberry and banana help to improve the smell and taste of your private parts. In addition, spices like cinnamon and ginger have a positive effect. So don’t be hesitant to use these foods on a day to day base.
The biggest cause of a bad smell and taste of your vagina however is bad hygiene. Make sure you give your vagina the proper care to keep her clean and fresh. Furthermore, bad smells become stronger due to pubic hair which retains nasty odors. Trimming your vagina will thus positively affect the taste and smell down there. And in addition, a nice bowl of fruit salad will bring you a long way!
