What Do Wives Think of Swallowing Semen?

What Do Wives Think of Swallowing Semen? 1

This post is also available as a podcast: Podcast #005: Yes, You Should Swallow

For several years that most popular post on our site has been “Yes, You Should Swallow”. It is the most-viewed individual post, and even though it’s old it still attracts a lot of comments. Since most readers probably don’t read comments to old posts, I thought I’d share a few of the best comments here on the front page (all from wives).

Bonnie from Love, Marriage and Sex left the first comment:

Thanks for the reference! Great post and nice to hear from the male perspective. Definitely agree that wives should try to learn to enjoy swallowing during oral sex.

Jen offers a tip:

I swallow and absolutely love it and would encourage those wives reading this who are leary of it to keep going. Yes, it took a while to get used to. But the intimacy it creates with my husband is beyond spectacular and it is something he loves doing seeing the expression on his face is indescribable. I got used to it by him finishing on my face and after a while I was able to taste it on my lips then I started letting him finish in my mouth. That is all… Jen

Michelle agrees with Jen’s approach:

Just to piggie back on Jen’s posting. Getting a facial from my husband is more of a benefit for both of us. I don’t really like the taste of semen and don’t like it in my mouth. My husband finds it quite a turn on when I let him finish on my face during oral sex. I usually am the one finishing him either with my mouth or with a hand job. My husband loves watching himself drip down my face and chin. I am ok with it and don’t have to take it in my mouth. Good for those couples who enjoy this…

Mia takes pleasure in giving pleasure:

Not sure about most women, but I sure enjoy swallowing! For me I feel like I am doing an incomplete job to my husband if I can’t finish him in my mouth! I am used to the taste, as it is something you need to get used to. If I don’t finish my husband during oral to me that is like having intercourse and not having my hubby finish… That pleases me the most is knowing I made him do that!

Nicole says swallowing is an acquired taste:

I absolutely love swallowing! My husband loves seeing his semen drip out of my mouth and drip down my chin. I must say though it is definitely an acquired taste and may be hard to get used to.

But not every wife likes the post…

Emma really doesn’t like semen:

I’ve attempted swallowing on several occasions. And ended up vomiting every single time. Thankfully we were in the shower each time.

Most women don’t find the taste enjoyable and only do it to please their husband. I find oral in general unbearable, and the thought of swallowing makes me physically ill.

Then again, I dislike sexual fluids in general and refuse to have sex without a condom.

This entire article is absurd in so many aspects that I don’t know where to start.

Ellie doesn’t seem to like sex much at all:

Yeah, not for me…
The five times I’ve chosen to suck my husbands semen depositor, I vomit, once all over him. Yes, I’ve ‘worked on’ my gag reflex to no avail, and the nausea tends to stick with me for hours afterwards. No swallowing or deep sucking for me!! It’s not a wifely duty…sex is not required of women. If a man can’t respect his wife saying ‘no’ then he has problems. Plus sex is ridiculous, ugly and gross, pregnancy is disgusting and children and creepy.

Here are a few others posts on the topic of swallowing:

What do you think? If you leave a comment on this post people will definitely read it!

  1. The last one has a problem and I wonder WHY she got married. As for swallowing and hubby requesting the act, He should not expect it unless he is willing to clean up his deposit in his wife. If he can’t stomach that he shouldn’t expect her to swallow. I always wanted to do that,,,,, but always chickened out after I was satisfied. :-)

  2. the last two comments sounds like they have some personal issue that need to be solved so they can enjoy sex with their husbands

  3. Wow! Just wow! Isn’t this a normal thing wives do? Or just the opposite? I personally have taken my husband in my mouth since the night of our honeymoon… It never gets old! The spark still burns… I could not even imagine not doing this having my husband finish in my mouth! I love being on my knees with my mouth open as he finishes where he chooses and I absolutely love it! This is a normal thing for our marriage and I can also say we are both very active in our church leading discussion and in worship team together. If those others even knew…LOL

    1. Based on conversations I’ve witnessed and emails we receive, many wives do not and many husbands deeply wish they would.

    2. Smart lady !! Oral is the glue that seals your marriage ! My guess is that almost all women and men do oral and to me its so exciting ! We have also enjoyed oral and swallowing makes it much more personal. Sandy

  4. Well I guess the old posting becomes a new posting… Reading the blogs it sounds like facials may be as controversial and as common as swallowing or taking semen in the mouth for wives???

  5. Personally, I don’t have a problem with swallowing other than the taste. The first time I actually threw up and decided it is not for me.
    The next time was on accident and although I didn’t get sick, I still don’t like it (neither the taste or the feeling).
    Having said all this, my DH loves it. For that reason alone I continue to make the effort. He will make sure I know it’s coming and we will adjust at the last second (yep, sometimes I’m too late ☺️), but I know what it does for him and will continue to give him blow jobs often.

  6. I love doing this! We’ve had to tweak it into a hand job that ends in a blow job for him to finish this way—whether that’s due to his sensitivity or my technique, it’s what works for us. I tell him every time how much I love swallowing what he gives me. (He happens to enjoy my “flavor” as well.) We got married so long ago that I honestly didn’t even know beforehand that oral sex was a thing! So glad it is.

    1. There’s definitely a segment of women who not only give oral sex to please their husbands, but really love doing it. What is it that you most enjoy about giving oral?

      1. Honestly, my favorite part of it is him ejaculating in my mouth, knowing I can get him to goal this way—maybe because it has been difficult for us to find the right combination of moves to make it happen. I’ve read that there are a small percentage of men who cannot orgasm from oral and wondered if my husband was one of them or if I wasn’t doing it “right” but we figured out how to make it happen. Makes me shiver to think of it!

  7. Sex is required of wives not unmarried women but in marriage neither husband or wife is not to deprive one another from sexual activity

  8. I know this is an older post but my wife just told me the other day how much she enjoys giving me blow jobs and how much she loves to swallow all that I give her. We have incorporated oral sex into our lovemaking ever since we were married. She loves this and I am so happy that she does.

  9. Unfortunately, I made a couple of mistakes before I met my husband and had a bad experience with fellatio. My husband and I have been married for fifteen years and it’s taken me long time to get past some of my discomfort with performing oral on my husband. It used to be only once in a great while and never to completion. And cunnilingus never seemed to do much for me either even though I never experienced that until I was married. We’ve recently discovered your blog and somehow it doesn’t seem so…(I’m not sure what word I’m looking for here)… unpleasant? We’ve both incorporated more of it into our foreplay and it’s been very pleasurable for both of us. I feel very confident in saying that we will be “practicing” oral more often with each other. I’m still not sure about swallowing but…until recently I never went down on my husband without being asked. Your blog has provided me with a new perspective–a perspective that I know my husband appreciates. Thank you, EF and SC! I wish I’d found this site sooner!

    1. How exciting that you’re experiencing new joy in your marriage! Thanks for sharing — we love to hear from readers whose marriages have been edified by our writing.

  10. I’m a husband whose wife wouldn’t even consider putting my penis in her mouth. She’s great at hand jobs though particularly focusing on the frenulum.
    Feel free not to publish this if you don’t think it’s helpful but I just find the thought of finishing on her face really distasteful. And it seems to me that the majority of wives responding in the comments have learned to put up with their husbands finishing in their mouth rather than actively enjoying it. I can only see maybe 4 or 5 who say it really gives them pleasure (usually the pleasure is seeing how much their husband likes it).
    I know it’s not in line with what you’re trying to promote ie encouraging the wife to swallow but I do think there might be other husbands out there who feel like this.
    By the way, I do hold out some hope of oral sex one day. We just have some talking and playing to do in the mean time.

  11. I feel very fortunate to be able to take all that my husband can deliver into my mouth. Sometimes he asks for it 3 or 4 times a day. Once I allowed him to finish in my mouth after anal sex and it was such a confusing feeling because I didn’t enjoy the physical aspect of it but it was a great joy to see how it pleasured my hubby.
