My boyfriend and I have been sexually active for several months now, and a few weeks ago was the first time I gave him oral sex. Mostly because it was both our first times giving/receiving, I ended up switching to manual sex because it got uncomfortable/awkward for me.
In any case, the reason I'm posting this is that I really want to be able to give my boyfriend oral sex, but I'm having trouble getting past the thought of him ejaculating in my mouth. I don't think I inherently would object to that, but it's just that, having never done this before, really, I don't know what it will taste like. I'm a little nervous about doing it again and being surprised by the taste, I guess.
I imagine that semen would have a slightly different taste from person to person due to different body chemistry and such, but does it have a general taste? I think I've heard before that it's salty, but there's not too much more to it?
Hey, Tashi. I'll start off by saying that you absolutely don't have to have his semen in your mouth if it's not something you're interested in. That's just one of many ways oral sex can be had. It's totally fine and normal to not want to have him ejaculate in your mouth, and plenty of people manage to incorporate oral sex into their sex lives without that
In terms of its actual taste; it will vary from person to person, but not by much at all (I can say with pretty much complete certainty that you'll never find someone with pineapple flavoured semen, for example ) and it does tend to be described as tasting salty if anything. Its taste tends not to be strong, so I wouldn't worry about it too much; some people are totally fine with the taste while others aren't so much, so it all just depends. But again, if you're not interested in having him ejaculate in your mouth, you don't have to.
The taste is difficult to describe, it's not really the same as any food I've eaten, but it's not really a bad taste. In my experience it's not salty, but it does feel a little grainy - kind of like pesto.
If you don't want to have him ejaculate in your mouth, you don't have to. There is nothing wrong with switching at the last couple of moments. Swallowing is a personal preference, some people like it and others don't.

Thanks everyone! I know that if I didn't want him to ejaculate in my mouth, it wouldn't be a problem switching. I don't anticipate that being too much of a issue. Mostly it was just anxiety over an unknown experience. But thanks for the info!

Another option would be to simply use a condom during oral sex. There are many types of flavored and scented condoms available, if you happen to dislike the regular ones. We always encourage barrier methods for all sexual activity with any new partner for at least 6 months and testing anyway.
