Q: "Is there something you can eat to taste amazing down there?"

Well, I don’t know about amazing, but there are some things that will make you taste lighter -- or better, if you will. Take a cue from your vegetarian friends: Fruits and vegetables like pineapple and celery give your vaginal fluids a milder taste. Meat, fish, and dairy products, on the other hand, make them taste stronger. So do garlic, spices, and caffeine. Drinking a lot of water actually helps flush out any possible offenders. Using flavored lubricants is another way to lighten the taste. Just make sure they don’t stray too far into the vagina, where they can irritate you.
