Smoking, Swallowing and Your Load
If you are like most guys, there’s a good chance that you like to get drained out from time to time.
If the moment is right and the other guy is down with it, you might even be lucky enough to get swallowed.
It all depends on the dynamics, right?
But what if you were to find out that the load coming out of your fountain tastes like soot?
Seriously, how would you react if you were to find out that the white, creamy liquid spurting out of your volcano caused your playmate to grimace?
Well guess what – if you smoke, there is a very good chance it’s happening. That may sound silly and perhaps even stupid but it’s totally true. Smoking makes your sperm taste yucky.
If this is a topic that makes you feel uncomfortable – don’t be. We’re all adults. Plus, we’ve covered man-juice before when we learned some fun facts about semen.
And while your diet has a lot to do with texture, odor and taste when it comes to all that gushers, smoking may have the biggest impact of all.
We’ll tell you how through a series of Q and A’s.
FYI: You should know that as a population, LGBT individuals are more likely to smoke than their heterosexual counterparts. The reasons are numerous, including higher levels of stress and unique socialization patterns.
As a group, some research suggests that we are 50% more likely to have a tobacco addiction than others.
OK – now that we have that out of the way, let’s jump right in!
Nicotine is a chemical substance that acts as a plant’s natural protection against being eaten by bugs.
It’s also made synthetically by tobacco companies and is one of the most addictive substances known to man.
What are cigarettes?
Cigarettes are the delivery mechanism that many people use for the intake of nicotine.
What most smokers do not know is that cigarettes contain over 4000 chemicals, many of which are known to be cancer causing (aka carcinogens). Of those 400 chemicals, approximately 400 of these are classified as toxins.
How do cigarettes impact sperm?
According to research, people who smoke are more likely to find that they have a decreased sperm count.
Your sperm cells hold two tiny, highly charged proteins called protamine 1 and protamine 2.
In smokers, scientific studies have found that nicotine apparently causes a decrease in protamine 2, which is necessary for homeostasis within the cell itself.
Because of this imbalance, the cell itself is highly vulnerable to DNA imbalance.
How do cigarettes effect sperm taste?
Nicotine and the other chemicals described above attach themselves to all cells in your body, including your sperm cells.
This is why you often “smell” smoke on other people – because the chemicals contained in tobacco have attached themselves to different parts of the body, including skin cells and hair follicles.
In the case of sperm’s taste in smokers, some of those protamine 2 cells as previously mentioned often become replaced with tobacco related chemicals and toxins.
When this happens, it has the unintended effect of transforming sperm’s taste from a salty, earthy substance to something sooty and foul.
In turn, this makes your load take on a yucky, “garbage can” taste. It can also cause your load to smell really bad.
Your load’s texture may also be effected, taking on a watery, translucent appearance as opposed to something thick and white.
Does smoking impact how the size of the load?
According to research, smokers produce less of a load than their non-smoking counterparts. And so this means that for each year that you smoke, you decrease your body’s ability to produce a productive, long shooting load.
Smoking also plays a significant role in the development of prostate cancer. And while it is true that genetics are part of the equation, research suggests that men who smoke are more likely to develop a more aggressive type of cancer.
Can I mask the taste with juice?
There are a number of old wives-tales online that suggest a guy can mask the taste of his malodorous load by drinking orange juice, carrot juice and other substances.
To date, there have been no studies to prove these approaches work.
We do know with certainty however that smoking cigarettes has an impact in how you smell. This means your skin and hair – and yes – even your load.
What can I do to stop smoking?
If you want to stop smoking, there are lots of places on the Internet to learn how.
Some great places to start include Whyquit.com, the American Cancer Association and the American Lung Association. It’s never too late to stop.
