You will, however, find information explaining how we experience smells and tastes.
The Science Behind Your Vagina’s Smell and Taste
Our senses of smell and taste work closely together. If you can’t smell, your sense of taste will also be decreased. Anyone who has been congested or super sick has probably had a moment when they noticed that food tasted dull–if they can taste anything at all.

Of course, it is near-impossible to change one without the other, especially through something as indirect as eating pineapple. As a result, anything you do to make your vagina smell less will have an effect on your taste–and vice versa.
The answer to this question is further complicated because there are multiple sources of flavors and odors. The labia majora (outer lips) and minora (inner lips) both have sweat glands, and the former has hair follicles . There are also the mucous membranes of the vagina itself. Natural lubricant, discharge, and female ejaculation or squirt can all play a role, too.

The vagina and surrounding areas have their own bacteria that are a part of our microbiome . Aside from affecting how your vagina smells or taste, vaginal microbiome plays a role in infections. Differing microbiome might explain why some people are more or less likely to get certain infections.
Because the vaginal opening is close to the urethra, you could smell or taste like urine, too. And the way pee smells can vary greatly based on diet or even medication.
What Vaginas Taste and Smell Like
Most people have a natural vaginal scent and taste. It might be musky, sweet, metallic, tangy, salty, bitter, sour, neutral, or something else.
Unless you notice a significant change in the way your vagina smells or tastes or unusual discharge (chunky white discharge is a sign of a yeast infection), you probably have nothing to worry about.
Your vagina is supposed to taste and smell like a vagina.
Because it’s a vagina.
Some people might smell or taste better, but your partner will never mistake you for cotton candy when going down on you.
But you wouldn’t expect that from any partner, would you?
You’re both human with bodies that include functions such as peeing, sweating, and menstruating, to name a few.
Don’t let your self-consciousness get in the way of a good time, especially if your partner likes going down on you.

Does Pineapple Make You Taste Better?
How you smell or taste might be change or be more intense depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle, if you have been wearing synthetic clothes that trap moisture, or if you have not recently bathed.
Exercise or hotter seasons can increase your natural vaginal odor or change your taste. This is mostly because bacteria that love moisture will be attracted to sweat. However, it’s actually your external genitalia, including your vulva, that sweat and not the vagina itself.
It is neither realistic nor healthy to have zero vaginal odor.
A lot of feminine hygiene products aren’t even good for your vagina! Slick marketing can convince you that you need them, but…
You could upset your normal vaginal flora and cause infections by douching to treat odor .
Harsh products such as boric acid could have a similar effect. Then, you’ll have a real problem on your hands. So it’s best to learn to accept your body, including the way your vagina smells and tastes, the way it is.
Factors that are more important than what you eat for preventing vaginal odor and smelling good:
- Bathing regularly
- Rinsing your vulva (but not vagina) with water
- Wearing clean underwear
Finally, some of the medication you take might make you smell and taste worse even if it helps other issues. So, you may need to find a partner who doesn’t mind or try some workarounds.
What to Eat to Change Your Vaginal Odor or Taste
With that said, some people swear that you can change the way pussy smells or tastes by changing what they eat. Drinking pineapple juice or eating pineapple is unlikely to be harmful as long as you’re not allergic, so you can give it a try if you’d like.
That is exactly what one blogger did, and her experience was that what she ate did make a difference. However, any testing you do is unlikely to be scientifically rigorous and free from confirmation bias.
Anything you eat can impact your scent and taste. Pineapple is just known for making it sweeter.
What might science eventually discover is causing this? There are two main theories. The first revolves around the sugar content of pineapple juice. If this is true, then most sweet things, including fruit, might make you taste better if you ingest enough sugar. Of course, that’s not very healthy.
Still, fruit, such as cherries, blueberries, melons, or oranges, might do the trick in reasonable amounts, and you could also experiment with fruit juices. Citrus is frequently mentioned online, and elderberry, which is in some supplements, is another option. Some people have noticed a difference when eating honey, too.
We even have a recipe designed to make cum taste better that might help with your vaginal smell or taste, too!
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 cup apple juice
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp honey
The other theory is that bromelain, an ingredient in pineapple, makes you smell or taste sweet. Some people who believe this take bromelain supplements, which are typically sold to help with inflammation. This could be true, but bromelain can absorb other medications and prevent them from working.
You should never start any supplement without researching it and, ideally, checking with your doctor. This includes bromelain. And if you need other medications for your health and happiness, taking bromelain may be too much of a risk.
When to Eat or Drink Pineapple to Change Your Vaginal Odor
When to eat fruit or drink juice to make yourself smell or taste better depends.
Some people report noticing changes in their taste or smell as soon as twenty minutes after consuming something, while some notice the next day. Other people habitually increase the amount of fruit they eat on the day or several days before they plan to have sex.
You will probably notice a difference after a few hours and it should not take over a day to notice a difference if eating pineapple will help the way your vagina smells. However, you may want to increase how much fruit you eat or fruit juice you drink over a few days before having sex to increase the sweetness your partner will experience.
How Much Pineapple Do You Need to Eat to Taste Better?
This isn’t an exact science. Start with a serving or two of pineapple or a glass of juice to see if it makes a difference. You can eat or drink more if you don’t notice a difference, as long as you’re not risking negative effects from the acid or sugar in the pineapple.
However, you may never see a difference, and that’s okay, too. Invite your partner to have a taste and enjoy the experimentation process!
What to Avoid Eating If You Want to Smell or Taste Better
If you want your vagina to taste and smell good, you might want to avoid some food, even if it’s an otherwise healthy food. Two common food that are known for making our bodies smell after we eat them:
These two are known for making our bodies smell after we eat them, especially if we eat a lot of them. Your vagina is no exception.
Additionally, certain greens can change the way your pee or sweat smell and can also impact the way your vagina taste or smells. Two big culprits:
Unless your partner loves it, avoid asparagus and spinach shortly before someone goes down on you.
Many people notice that they almost taste like “nothing” if they become vegetarians and especially vegans. You don’t necessarily need to change your entire diet, but avoid the most likely causes of unpleasant vaginal odors or tastes in the day or so before sex.
Be careful with these other foods and habits:
- Coffee. Some say it improves their taste, while it worsens it for others.
- Red meat
- Processed food
- Drinking too much alcohol
- NOT drinking enough water
Overall, remaining hydrated and healthy is key to a vagina that smells or tastes better. Water dilutes any flavors, unpleasant or otherwise.
Is Using Flavored Lube a Good Option If You’re Worried about the Smell or Taste of Your Vagina?
You can try other things to make your vagina smell or taste better. One option is to use flavored lube. It can cover any natural smells or tastes if your partner isn’t a fan. You can also use flavored lube when giving a blowjob to please your man more intensely.
Discover what lube you should use and when.
You might also find that dental dams (or condoms for blowjobs) help. A dental dam is a square of plastic-like material that your partner holds against your vulva during oral sex. Dental dams are intended to reduce the spread of STIs, but they might help in this instance.
Tip: if you use dental dams, apply some lube to the side that touches your body.
Can Eating Pineapple Make You Tighter?
While eating pineapple might help your vagina smell or taste better, it will not make your vagina tighter.
Can Eating Pineapple Make You Wetter?
Drinking pineapple juice also won’t make you wetter by default. Foreplay is one way to get wet before sex. Eating enough fruit or drinking enough juice to improve your hydration could be good for your natural lubrication. You could also replace juice with water.
This guide should help you understand that there may be some truth to the idea that pineapple makes your vagina smell good. You can experiment yourself with what you eat to see if it makes a difference, but keep your expectations realistic because so many other things impact vaginal odor or taste.
Orgasm Every Time. Easily. Here’s How…
I want to tell you about my friend Karen.
Karen came to me one day. She was hysterical.
She told me that her marriage was falling apart because she and her husband didn’t have satisfying sex.
Every time they were intimate, Karen was faking her orgasms. It turns out she couldn’t orgasm during sex.
She never had an orgasm in her entire life. Not one!
This left her feeling embarrassed and ashamed. And…
She completely hid this from her husband. Thankfully…
It turns out that there is a way for any woman to orgasm. Easily. And have multiple vaginal and full body orgasms during sex and masturbation.
I shared the process with Karen.
After she followed the simple process, she could barely come to terms with how…
Quickly and dramatically her sex life changed.
We met up a few months later and…
She would not stop talking about it,
“I thought I was one of those women who couldn’t orgasm. I used to think I was ‘broken’ and ‘unfixable.’ This saved my sex life, and that saved my marriage.”
Even if you currently struggle to orgasm during sex or when masturbating, this process will also work for you.
And best of all, you don’t need to do anything weird or uncomfortable to start having the best orgasms and sex of your life.
