Complaining About Oral Sex

Have You Filed an Oral-Sex Complaint?

If you're like 82 percent of us, you don't use condoms for oral sex. It's no surprise then women have a few complaints for men, and 34 percent aren't afraid to speak up about — I'm just going to say this — the taste of their partner's ejaculation. Yet only 9 percent of men report receiving complaints. Huh!

To be fair, the survey of 500 sexually active adults found similar stats for men. In fact, it seems like they might be pickier than women with 37 percent complaining, and only 6 percent of women fessing up to receiving complaints. Though specially marketed mints exist, have you ever sent your regrets?

I think if you're in love with the guy, you just love it no matter what - because it's about pleasing him, as well as you getting turned on too.

I love oral! Providing someones clean and fresh I have no problem giving and I also expect to receive. No oral - no entry - no exceptions!

I've always read that vegetarians taste better, and my boyfriend and I happen to both be vegetarians.

I've never "complained" but I've definitely commented... in a joke-y capacity tho, not in a bitchy way. I can tell if my bf has been eating a lot of red meat (musky rubber band flavor) or fruit (sweeter) or curry (salt city) or beer (actually kinda good) so I'll crack a joke if the difference is noticeable. I don't think he finds it rude, I'm not saying anything against him personally--it's just baby batter! As for complaints FROM guys, I've only ever heard positive feedback... Maybe I'm just with polite guys, but I've also heard that vegetarians taste better so who knows :P

Wellll if they haven't showered, it's not too bad to say anything I suppose, but if you don't like how someone naturally tastes, then it would be mean to say anything.

I never complained about the taste, though I've complained about not receiving any oral. Even if you try some flavored lubes, they taste nasty and Anon is right, no sugar down there is good. If you really can't stand the taste, swig some Jack Daniels and you'll be fine.

I've yet to meet anyone who tastes like spearmint, bubblegum, cherry licorice, pick your flavour. It's never bothered me enough to complain.

Meh, this is no surprise. Women know that semen tastes pretty foul (even on the best days), and there's not much you can do about it. Dudes complaining about women's parts is nothing new...they want something out of a storybook, then seem bewildered/disappointed at female bodies going through hormonal changes during the month that alter the tastes, and at how easily women get infections that change the smells. And that's not to mention anything about pubic hair, or what that (or the lack thereof) does to tastes and smells, either. So yeah, some men can be really HUGE wussies/ignorant fools, and forget women are still human, go through changes, and aren't made out of strawberry ice cream cake.

Hmm. Have to say I'm not sure what this post is asking. Is it, "have I ever told someone I didn't like how they tasted?" Or what? I've never seen an episode of SATC so maybe that's why I don't quite get it...
