Hi there ! Just a question out of curiosity, since I can't seem to find an appropriate answer on the web: what is the texture of male ejaculation? I've read different answers and I'm not sure which to trust. Some say it is thick when there is an STD, some say very liquidy in normality. Is there any correct answer? What worries me is that if some gets on your stomach, is it the kind of watery texture that could run down your tummy and sneak down under the waist line if your pants are super loose? Very improbable, but I am interested in the answer if you wouldn't mind helping me out on that. [Smile]

Unless you're working in a lab where you can run tests on fluids, or have training and education in providing sexual healthcare, the consistency of ejaculate is not going to be something a layman can look at and determine if someone has an infection or not.

Especially since more times than not, with most STIs, an infection will be completely asymptomatic: someone can have one and nothing can look different about their bodies or fluids.

If I had to make a comparison, leaving room for some variation, I'd say semen is a lot like egg white, but a little bit thicker.

I'm not sure what you're asking or suggesting about fluids "sneaking" under clothing. When someone has pants on, someone else's fluids are not going to be getting in contact with their genitals in ways where we need to be concerned about pregnancy or STI acquisition. But if someone doesn't feel comfortable with a person ejaculating on their body, for any reason, all they need to do is set that limit with a partner.
