Many vagina owners don’t realize that semen can be the cause of unpleasant smells from their lady bits, but there are actually a few reasons a man’s “elixir” may cause your yoni some distress.
Like anything that contains proteins, the smell of semen changes when it decomposes inside the vagina.
But that’s not to say you don’t have a healthy vagina or that you should douche or wash inside your vagina, because that will weaken your vagina’s own immune system!
Vaginas are amazing self-cleansing pleasure palaces with an immune system of their own.
The key to optimum functioning and a healthy vagina lies in its pH and a sufficient amount of healthy bacteria. A healthy vagina is fairly acidic, with a pH value between 3.8 – 4.5, which is perfect for the healthy bacteria to thrive, but too acidic for “bad” bacteria to grow.
When the pH becomes more alkaline, i.e. a higher number on the pH scale, it becomes a great place for “bad” bacteria to grow, which will produce a different kind of vaginal smell.
So, a healthy vagina is supposed to have a certain odor. But in the case when the smell changes after your partner has ejaculated inside you, why does this happen?
Semen has a pH of 7.2 – 8, which, when ejaculated into the vagina will affect the vaginal pH balance temporarily. If the immune system of the vagina is healthy to start, with an acidic pH value, and a sufficient amount of healthy bacteria, the occasional dose of semen normally won’t cause any trouble.
The male body combines the best of vital essences to produce semen, to ensure it is high-quality baby-making juice!
According to the Chinese Taoist tradition, men will benefit greatly from not wasting this precious liquid every time they have sex. And from the perspective of a Tantrika, why ejaculate when your orgasm actually doesn’t depend on it???
Through many years of teaching men to separate orgasm from ejaculation our team of Authentic Tantra teachers and I have seen how rewarding this is for these men and their female partners.
The men experience an increase in vitality and physical functioning (including their ability to last longer) as they retain their semen for 4-8 weeks at a time, while enjoying multi-orgasmic love making sessions.
Their female partners enjoy longer and multi-orgasmic love-making sessions, and their vaginal pH is less likely to be thrown off-balance by semen.
Watch Marthe describe how to restore pH balance to your yoni after a healthy dose of semen.
