Ask the Resident (Sex) Advisor

The Resident Sex Advisor answers sex-related questions from college students

Dear RSA,
My boyfriend says that when he eats me out I have a strange taste. I think I might also have a smell. How can I fix this?

It's possible that you're having a "feminine hygiene" issue, although this problem has been way blown out of proportion and women have been made paranoid about having smelly genitals. In reality, healthy vaginas have a range of smells and tastes depending on their owners, so if you bathe daily and wash your vulva thoroughly with soap and water, you may not have any problem at all. Before you jump to any conclusions, find out how experienced a muff diver your boyfriend is and whether he is qualified to tell a normal pussy flavor from an abnormal one.

Also, keep in mind that the taste of your vagina is affected by what you ingest, so if you smoke, drink coffee and alcohol, and eat a lot of meat, fish, or spicy foods, these flavors will come out in your pussy juice. For sweeter nectar down there, you can try switching to a vegetarian diet and eliminating as many toxic habits as possible.

Of course, it is also possible that you may have an infection of some sort. If you have a yeast infection, you would probably be itching in your crotch and having a white chunky vaginal discharge that smelled like baking bread. If you had a bacterial infection, you might have a yellowish or greenish discharge that smelled really nasty, along with vaginal pain or itching. If you're having any of these symptoms, visit your doctor or campus health center and get it checked out.
