So you want to know how to make your dick taste better?
Well, you’re certainly not alone.
We’d all love to think we’re in top form when it comes to getting up close and personal with someone, but the truth is, life happens.
Sometimes you or your partner will have a smell going on, and this could be a turnoff.
The genital area has many sebaceous and apocrine glands, which produce oil and sweat and, therefore, can lead to odor but also change the way your penis tastes.
This is also an area that usually gets overheated under layers of clothes and underwear, all of which can lead to bacterial growth that can cause intense smells and a funny taste.
However, unless you have a medical issue such as a fungal infection that needs immediate treatment, there are some easy ways to help keep the odor under control and make your dick taste good.

Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks
Some foods and drinks that may noticeably affect how your dick tastes include:
A good rule of thumb is that any food that modifies the smell of your sweat or pee will also modify the secretions from your penis (or your skin), impacting the taste.
Lastly, try to avoid cigarettes.
Besides being awful for your overall health, numerous studies have found that smoking may change the composition and lower the quality of semen, which may also change its taste.
Believe it or not, you might not know how to wash your penis properly.
You might be ignoring that area entirely or rushing it rather than giving it a thorough scrub.
Slow down! You need to take your time and be meticulous.
There are a lot of folds around the groin areas that can lock onto a foul smell or bacteria, resulting in irritation or even a bacterial infection, which is why it’s important to really take your time and wash all of the crevices.
Uncircumcised men need to clean beneath the foreskin as well.
Avoid using an antibacterial soap because these could create an imbalance in the healthy bacteria on your skin and cause a disruption of the pH value, resulting in bacterial infections.
Instead, use regular, non-scented soap or a shower gel that doesn’t contain alcohol or too much fragrance, as this will help prevent irritation or inflammatory conditions such as dermatitis.
Get Rid of Smegma
You may have noticed a secretion in the folds of your skin down there, especially if you are uncircumcised.
That’s a smegma buildup.
Smegma buildup, also called “dick cheese,” is a mixture of skin cells, yeast, and sweat that can appear under your foreskin and will smell strongly.
How do you get rid of it? Simply wash regularly since sweat is the real catalyst for smegma:
“Yeast is always on your skin, but you can’t make cheese unless you give it the proverbial milk… which would be the water or sweat that blends with yeast to make the cheese,”
says Dr. David Shusterman, Founder and Medical Director of NY Urology
If you notice more smegma than usual or particularly malodorous smegma, you might be suffering from a yeast infection, in which case you need to see a doctor and get treatment for it ASAP.
Don’t Neglect Your Scrotum
You can clean the tip of your penis all you want, but if you aren’t pristinely clean everywhere down there, your efforts will be wasted.
Since the penis is an external sex organ, you’re not going to have the same issues to worry about with smells as a woman with her internal sex organs does, so, on a man, a big possible offender or source of malodorous deterrents is going to be from below and behind.
Don’t just concentrate on getting the tip of your penis clean and tasting good; you need to clean everywhere between your legs.
Shaving is common among dudes who manscape, but it’s also one of the most hazardous if you’re not careful.
When you shave, it’s easy to accidentally slice some skin and expose yourself to bacteria or irritants.
Shaving can also block your follicles — the casings that hold each hair — potentially causing folliculitis or ingrown hairs.
These types of conditions can not only cause discomfort but can also affect how your penis smells and tastes.
Therefore, to avoid the risk of irritation or infection, shave in the direction that your hair grows.
Pull your skin to keep it taut to get all of the hair.
Additionally, when shaving your intimate area, make sure to shave your balls and your scrotum.
Be very careful while doing it because these are the easiest areas to nick with a sharp blade.
Lastly, when you shave, you are also removing the buildup of dead skin cells on your skin’s surface, which will leave you with a smoother and cleaner area.
Avoid Using Antiperspirant in That Area
Even though you might think it’s a great idea for managing sweat and smelling fresh, do not use antiperspirant anywhere around that whole area.
Antiperspirants will not only taste horrible on the tongue of the person whose face is between your legs but can also potentially make the smell problem worse and cause you to sweat even more.
Be a Little Extra the Right Way
If you want to go above and beyond, consider dabbing a little bit of alcohol-free mouthwash around your perineum (the area between your scrotum and your anus) and all the way to your anal opening.
This will help keep the area fresh and make everything in this area smell and taste much better.
On top of that, it may be a good idea to dust a little bit of baby powder all over your dick, balls, perineum, groin, and other areas where you sweat most, as this will help absorb excess sweat and keep the area ultra-fresh and clean.
Opt For Cotton Underwear
Cotton is a soft material because it is absorbent, breathable, and widely available, making it the perfect option for everyday underwear.
However, when exercising or playing a game of basketball or golf, it is better to ditch the cotton underwear and use a brief designed with more absorbent material.
Polyester, for example, is the workhorse of the workout fabrics and the one you see on labels most often.
This material will be your ideal choice for workout clothes because it’s durable, wrinkle-resistant, lightweight, and non-absorbent, which means that moisture from your skin evaporates instead of being drawn into the material.
Less sweat on your skin = less bad smell.
Change Your Underwear Regularly
And I don’t mean changing your underwear regularly, like once or twice a day, I mean buying new underwear at least once a year.
Don’t get too attached to your underwear because, one, it’s not that deep, but also because the material gets worn out over time and can actually end up gathering more bacteria which will affect how your dick smells and tastes.
Nearly all outlets and experts agree that you should replace your old underwear with new underwear once every 6-12 months.
If you’re the kind of guy who has an entire drawer full of boxers and briefs and therefore maintains a fairly broad rotation, you can probably hold on to each pair for a full year.
On the other hand, if you’re the kind of guy who’s been rotating between the same four pairs of undies for the last six months, it’s time to swap them out.
And remember: this goes for everyone, including men who wash their underwear regularly.
You don’t need to buy super expensive underwear if you are going to throw it out after a year, so don’t be bothered about that; however, you should know you can also sell your old and dirty underwear online.
Apply Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a natural alternative to a body cream that can make your dick feel moisturized and hydrated but also taste and smell great.
You will likely have to apply it 5-10 minutes before putting your underwear on because it needs to absorb into the skin, or else it can stain your clothes, but the best thing about it is that your dick will smell and taste like coconuts for the entire day.
Apply Flavored Lube
Flavored lubes are definitely the best way to make your dick smell and taste heavenly because there is a huge scent variety for everyone’s tastes.
Flavored lubricants can be fruity, chocolaty, minty, or just sugary-sweet, and they can not only make your dick smell and taste great but also bring extra moisture to the party.
Same as with coconut oil, try to apply any flavored lube of your choice for at least 5-10 minutes before putting underwear on to avoid staining.
Other than that, flavored lubes are definitely safe to be worn all day as a body lotion and will make your skin feel silky, smooth, and moisturized.
