From a sociocultural point of view, semen has been attributed to potential energy source according to Chinese medicine and Chi Kung theory. According to Chi Kung theory, energy from many pathways/meridians becomes diverted and transfers itself to the sexual organs during sexual excitement. The theory proposes that upon expelling of semen, certain energy from the man’s body is also being released. This explains why men feel weak after releasing their sperm.

In addition to its central role in reproduction, some studies have made claims that semen may have certain beneficial effects on human health:
- Antidepressant: One study suggested that vaginal absorption of semen could act as an antidepressant in women; the study compared two groups of women, one of which used condoms and the other did not.
- Cancer prevention: Studies suggest that seminal plasma both prevents and fights cancer, particularly breast cancer, reducing risk by “not less than 50 percent.” This effect is attributed to its glycoprotein and selenium content, with apoptosis being induced by TGF-Beta. A related urban legend parodied these findings and claimed that performing fellatio at least three times a week reduced the risk of breast cancer.
- Preeclampsia prevention: It has been hypothesized that substances in semen condition a mother’s immune system to accept the “foreign” proteins found in sperm as well as the resulting fetus and placenta, keeping blood pressure low and thereby reducing the risk of preeclampsia. A study shows that oral sex and swallowing sperm may help make a woman’s pregnancy safer and more successful, because she is absorbing her partner’s antigens.

Some male-bodied people would prefer to not receive oral sex at all, despite what society would tell us about what people want in bed. Some people like it as a foreplay activity, but would prefer to not let it go on for more than 15 minutes or so. Some male-bodied people love to feel like they are in control of their orgasm, and are turned off by the role reversal, or simply just cannot cum that way.
Be aware that just because TV and movies and internet tell you that every male-bodied person wants blowjobs all day and night doesn’t make it universally true! There could be confidence issues involved, or it could just be preference. As always, communication is the best route to great sex.

Sometimes you just want things to be a little slipperier, and who wouldn’t want a little flavor? A lot of flavored lubes use sugar and glycerin to make them taste good, but it’s important to remember that vaginas are often sensitive to sugars and having vaginal intercourse after using a flavored lube might not be the best idea.
A great way to improve your blow jobs is to USE YOUR HANDS! Many male-bodied people prefer the handjob/blowjob over either on their own. Having one hand messaging the scrotum while the other works a corkscrew-type motion over the base and lower shaft of the penis while sucking and licking on the head and shaft can blast a male-bodied person into pure ecstasy!

It’s up to you!
Maybe your partner has a preference, or thinks he/ze does, but when the moment cums, you can make spitting or swallowing equally sexy.
Semen actually has some great effects for the skin, as it has a potent tightening effect. If you want to spit, you can rub it on in and really enjoy the spectacle. The main complaint about spitting is the ego-killing effect it may have on the receiver - no one wants to think that their moment of climactic glory tastes gross! Cum has different flavors at different times, depending on the person and what they have eaten. Saying “yuck!” can really ruin an otherwise good time, but thinking “yuck!” and looking like “yum!” is a sure way to spit without crushing an ego. Many people enjoy the taste of semen, or enjoy it with one person and not another, or just have to be in the mood. Just remember that there should be no pressure to do anything but what comes comfortably to you.
Swallowing is a fast option, as long as it doesn’t make you gag! You actually taste it less when it slides smoothly down your throat. Cum actually has a lot of protein and amino acids, and is a calorie-rich, healthy snack if you think of it that way. Some vegans won’t swallow, as it is technically an animal protein.
