Nutritional Information Regarding Semen?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 03, 2012 at 10:17 AM

Ok, as a very sexually active newly married chica, I got to wondering the other night about the effects of swallowing semen on my 100% Whole30 compliant paleo diet? Carbs? Proteins? Sugars? Fats?

@Wisper: The OP didn't even mention calories. Some people think about the amount of anti-nutrients, gluten, toxins, etc., in small amounts of foods--so much that they won't use even a tsp. of something like corn starch. Besides, the question is about sex, and sex is fun. Fun questions are nice once in awhile!

Korion, the taste really depends on the guy's diet. Fruits like pineapple makes it a lot sweeter and the time I ate a lot of junk food and potato chips a few days in a row gave the most horrible salty taste she ever experienced. And she wasn't aware of my eating if that matters.

Fructose does not exist in nature without a way to break it down. With fruit there is fiber to help digest it and with honey there are enzymes that help break down the fructose during digestion. I bet the fructose in semen is safe.

Hahahahahahahaha. Seriously though, it has fructose, zinc, some protein (comparable to gelatin), but this information can be found easily with mr. google (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semen#Composition_of_human_semen). It's not like you're drinking glasses full of it anyways.

I think it rather depends on the serving size (apparently the band "10cc" are named after the average amount on male ejaculate, so that could be a good starting point).

Apparently the nutritional profile depends on how long has elapsed since he last ejaculated (probably not long in the context of your question) and how aroused he is.

A typical serving has 5 to 7 calories, mainly from protein. Other nice ingredients include: Water, Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), Citric acid, Enzymes, Phosphate and Zinc. That's the good news.

The bad news is that it also contains fructose (which is probably why eating lots of pineapple is supposed to enhance the flavor). I'm not sure how much the fructose content decreases on a Paleo diet (or why such an apparently toxic substance is their at all - maybe it isjust for flavor).

I wouldn't worry about it too much, unless you intend in participating in the Japanese national sport of "Bukkake".

Edit: According to this reference semen contains between 1200 to 4500 ??g/ml of fructose so, by my estimates, you'd have to drink around 5 litres before you got the same amount of fructose contained in a medium apple. I'm thinking that eating the apple is probably better for your health.

With all due respect, I think this is a great example of taking the Whole30 too far.

Enjoy your newly married life; and please just step back a moment to think about what you are asking: are you really willing to compromise your lifestyle in this regard for something ingested so small in volume that is completely natural.

I mean, are you wanting to add this as a custom food to track in a nutritional calculator? :)

For the fun factor, do y'all recall this 'cookbook' released a few years back? http://www.lulu.com/shop/fotie-photenhauer/natural-harvest-a-collection-of-semen-based-recipes/paperback/product-20052760.html. In these quantities, this information may be in order....
