Everything You Need to Know About Swallowing Cum (How to Do It)

Getting a blowjob is a lot like watching a movie. He can enjoy the whole performance but, if it doesn’t end on a good note, he’s still going to walk out of there feeling disappointed.

That’s why the finish is the most important part of sucking dick, and, as any oral expert will tell you, there’s only one way he wants you to finish – he wants you to swallow his cum.

Swallowing cum is one of the most erotic and submissive gestures you can make in bed. When you gulp down his load, you make him feel powerful and let him know just how much you want him. It’s the ultimate compliment.

In this guide, we’re going to be telling you everything you need to know about consuming cum. We’ll be sharing some of the best-kept secrets and revealing the advanced techniques that pornstars and oral sexperts swear by.

Trust me; you don’t want to miss this, so grab your notepad and read on!

Why You Should Learn How to Swallow Cum

First off, let’s talk about why you need to read this guide.

You might think that eating cum is all about pleasing your man, and you’d be 90% right. However, it’s not all about him – it’s good for you too.

Consuming cum actually has a bunch of other benefits that you might not have considered. I’ve listed some of the main ones below.

Guys Love It

This is the first, and probably the most important reason that you should try swallowing cum. Every guy is different, but what most have in common is that they love having their cum swallowed. It really up’s the kink factor and intimacy levels in a relationship.

If you want your man to stay interested in oral sex, and you don’t want him to start looking elsewhere for some BJ action, cum swallowing is the way to go. It’ll show him how much you love sucking his cock, and seeing you consume his ejaculate is sure to make his orgasms that much more enjoyable.

It Helps You To Remain in The Moment

If you’re usually a spitter, you’ll already know how annoying it is to get rid of your man’s cum once he’s finished. You have a few choices, spit into a tissue if there is one nearby, or run off to the bathroom to spit into the sink, just fast enough so that you don’t have to taste it before you get there.

Although this is effective in getting rid of the cum, it’s also a huge mood killer and can take things from sexy to sort of awkward very quickly. By the time you get back, your guy might have lost interest since he’s already finished and you’ve been in the bathroom for the last five minutes.

Swallowing eradicates the need for this bathroom break. You can keep going for as long as you like after your man has finished, meaning you’re likely to have more fun.

It Has a Ton of Health Benefits

There has been a range of studies related to the ingestion of semen, and more than one has found that consuming cum can actually make you healthier. Some of the main benefits that have been discovered are that cum can help to lower blood pressure, and it can also help you sleep.

According to one study, due to the high levels of melatonin in semen, it acts as a natural relaxant and could help you get a better night’s sleep.

In addition to this, cum is reportedly packed full of vitamins, so if you forget to take your multivitamin in the morning, swallow your man’s load, and you should be good to go. According to studies, it contains over 200 different proteins, including zinc, which is great for slowing down aging.

He Can Cum Inside You (Without Getting You Pregnant)

Having your man cum inside you is a super intimate experience, but for couples that are trying to avoid pregnancy, it’s basically out of the question. When using a condom, you and your man will never be able to experience him ejaculating inside you, and this can lead to a distance within relationships.

However, swallowing your man’s cum can bridge this gap and help you to feel closer and more intimate than ever. It is as close as you can safely get to having him cum inside you, and therefore, it provides a feeling of intimacy and commitment, just like it would if he came into your vagina.

It Can Make Things More Interesting

Ever get the feeling that things are becoming stale in your sex life? Do you want to try something new and interesting that will really help to keep your man interested? Swallowing his cum could be just the ticket.

For many guys, where and how they finish is just as important as the build-up, and your guy may really appreciate you surprising him by consuming his ‘ultimate gift.’

Swallowing cum is just the first step in unlocking a raunchier and kinkier side to yourself, and if your man sees that your game, it might give you both the confidence to try new things and spice up your sex life even further in the future.

It’s a Natural Antidepressant

We all know that great sex can give you a boost even on the worst of days, but what you might not have known is that consuming cum can actually help to lift your spirits even higher.

According to some university studies carried out in the US, exposure to semen is said to counteract depressive symptoms. According to the study, those who have sex without condoms showed fewer depressive symptoms.

Supposedly, swallowing cum, or receiving it into your vagina can help to temporarily alleviate depression following intercourse. So ladies, if you’re feeling low, you should give it a try!

How to Consume Cum Without Gagging

One of the things that many people worry about when swallowing cum is that they will gag and ruin the moment.

The first thing to mention is that a lot of guys find gagging really hot, so don’t worry about it too much.

However, gagging isn’t all that fun for the giver, and therefore, you may want to avoid gagging altogether. The steps below should help you learn how to consume sexily whilst still being comfortable (and not gagging!)

Let Yourself Get Carried Away

If it’s your first time swallowing cum when giving head, it can be easy to get yourself worked up about it. However, it doesn’t have to be something that you overthink, if it works for you at the moment, go for it, if not save it for a better time.

Try your best to stay in the moment and enjoy whatever sexual escapades that you’re engaging in. The hornier you feel, the more likely you will be to take swallowing cum in your stride and enjoy it too.

Mentally Prepare For His Climax

You know what it looks like. His body starts to become a little tenser, his knees start to shake, and you know that he’s about to shoot his load. This is your moment to really give him a mind-blowing experience.

When you see him reaching his climax point, take a deep breath, and relax. Remember that consuming his load will be super-sexy for both of you and that you don’t need to worry about it being gross. Taking this split second to relax will help you to enjoy the moment that much more.

Position Yourself

In order to catch his load in your mouth, you will need to make sure that you are in the right position. Make sure that your lips are really close to the tip of his penis, and depending on what position he is in, you may even need to cup the head of his penis with your mouth. Whilst you wait for his delivery, you can also use your tongue to stimulate the tip of his penis, to make for a truly orgasmic experience.

Catch His Load

When you feel his cum spurting into your mouth, you will need to catch it in order to gulp it down. When it looks like he’s pretty much done, close your mouth and take a second to enjoy the feeling of his cum in your mouth. You can even consider moaning or saying ‘mmmm’ to show your man how much you are enjoying yourself.

Tip Your Head Back

If you want to avoid gagging, it may be a good idea to tip your head back slightly. This will help all the cum to travel to the back of your throat and away from your tastebuds. Just like if you were taking a pill, having the cum pooled at the back of your mouth will make it easier to swallow.

Gulp It Down

And then, all that’s left to do is swallow! Gulping it down with audible gulps can make things even sexier and will show your man that you’re enthusiastic about consuming his cum. Larger gulps will also make it easier to get all of it down without gagging.

Once it’s all gone, feel free to grab a drink to wash away the taste. Or if you’re enjoying yourself, savor it and wait a little longer before rinsing.

If you want to learn how to swallow cum like a pornstar, the techniques below should help you take your abilities to the next level.

Advanced Techniques

If you’ve got the basics of swallowing cum down and you want to crank things up a notch, there are lots of things you can do to make things even sexier. Here are some of my favorite techniques that will make consuming his cum even more erotic.

The Clean-Up Technique

If you didn’t have a chance to get yourself in the firing line before he shot his load, don’t worry, you can still swallow his cum. You just have to do a little clean-up first.

Using your tongue, slowly lick the cum from his or your body (depending on where he finished) until you have a small pool of semen in your mouth. You can then gulp it down with pleasure, whilst throwing in a few “mmmm’s” along the way to show him how much you enjoyed it.

Since your guy didn’t finish in your mouth, he’ll probably be taken by surprise that you are so keen to consume his cum, and he’ll love you all the more for it.

The Facial Swallow

Some guys really love finishing on their partner’s face, and if your man is one of those guys, you may be wondering how you can consume his cum. Well, the answer is simple, lick the cum off your face after he’s given you a facial. This technique is super simple but ridiculously sexy, and your man’s mind is sure to be blown by it.

All you have to do is use your fingers to scoop his cum off your face and into your mouth. Once it’s in there, savor the taste and show your enthusiasm before swallowing it down. Trust me; this technique will leave your man begging for a blowjob every day.

The Show-Off Technique

If you really want to draw out the cum swallowing experience, then the show-off technique is a great way to do it. With this technique, you don’t want to gulp his cum down straight away. Instead, take a moment to play around with it, so he can see how much you’re enjoying the whole experience.

You can roll it around your tongue like you’re licking a lollipop, blow bubbles with it, or use your fingers to massage it onto different areas of your body, such as your nipples. Whatever you’re into, don’t be afraid to show off a little before you gulp his cum down.

Cum Swapping

This next technique isn’t for the faint-hearted, and you may find it hard to find a guy that is actually into this. But if you want to make things a little nasty in the bedroom, it’s definitely something to think about.

Cum swapping is the act of swapping the cum from your mouth to your man’s mouth whilst kissing.

Once you’ve caught his load, you simply have to kiss your man and exchange the cum from your mouth to his. After a few seconds, the cum will start to meld with your saliva and will become thicker.

This is perfect if you want to play with his cum before swallowing it. However, since most guys are hesitant to kiss their partner even after the cum has already been consumed, you may find it hard to convince your guy to try cum swapping.

Blowjob Positions That Are Great for Swallowers

Your experience will differ depending on what position you are in when he shoots his load. Below are some of the most comfortable and exciting positions for cum lovers to try out.

The Traditional Kneeling Blowjob

The traditional kneeling blowjob is something that most people will have some experience with. It’s an easy position for catching his cum and consuming it without gagging.

Technique: He is standing, and the giver is on their knees in front. When your guy comes, it will shoot deep into your mouth, which should make it a lot easier to consume.

Why it’s great: It’s a comfortable position for everyone, and it’s great for beginners.

The Boss Chair

The boss chair will leave your man feeling like a king, and it’s super comfortable for the giver too. When the time comes to swallow, his load will be easy to catch, and your man will have a great view if you want to try out some cum play.

Technique: The man sits in a chair, and the giver is on their knees in front. It’s a very comfortable position, so it’s great for long oral sessions and deepthroating.

Why it’s great: It’s relaxed, and it helps the guy feel proud and in control.

The Therapist Couch

The therapist couch is a great oral position if you really want to give your man a relaxing treat. He can literally kick back, whilst you give him a sensual blowjob, with showstopping swallowing finale.

Technique: The man lies comfortably on a sofa, and the giver kneels at the side to suck him. When the guy shoots his load, the giver can catch it or try the clean-up technique and lick the cum off their man’s stomach.

Why it’s great: It’s comfortable and very relaxing for the man, and he has a great vantage point to watch you.

The Face Fuck

The face fuck position is a little more extreme than some of the positions mentioned above, and therefore you should proceed with caution when performing it.

However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go if you and your partner like rough play. It’s a totally awesome position, and it pairs perfectly with cum swallowing.

Technique: The blowjob giver lies on their back with their head slightly raised on some pillows. The guy kneels above and thrusts his penis into their mouth. You can thrust as hard or as soft as you are both comfortable with.  

Why it’s great: It puts the man in control, and if he wants you to swallow, you might not have much of a choice in this position.

Accessories That Make Eating Cum More Fun

Want to make consuming your man’s cum even more erotic? These accessories can take your cum swallowing from sexy to mind-blowing, and they can make the whole experience more fun for you too.

Flavored Lube

If it’s the taste of cum that’s been causing you to hold back on the swallowing front, then flavored lube could be just what you need. Head down to your local pharmacy or online sex shop and choose your favorite flavor.

Using lube during oral always makes things more slippery and fun, and flavored lube can help you to overcome your fear of consuming his salty semen by mixing it with one of your favorite flavors. If you introduce the lube whilst you’re sucking him, by the time he shoots his load, all you’ll be able to taste is salty strawberries, or whatever flavor you chose.


Food play during sex is always fun and erotic, but it can also help you to sweeten the deal when swallowing as well. My recommendation would be to choose a sweet and soft food such as chocolate pudding or whipped cream.

Soft foods like this are easy to incorporate into an oral session, and they can help to offset the taste of cum. Also, licking whipped cream off of his cock is a great way to tease him with what is to come when he finishes.

Also, one final tip. Choose a food that is easy to clean up, just in case things get messy.


In the same way as food and lube, drinks can help you gulp down his load with ease. Bubbly drinks like champagne are a good choice since the bubbles will create a tingling sensation on his cock when you’re sucking him.

When he finishes into your mouth, take a gulp of your drink and mix it around with the semen.

It will offset the taste, and you may even want to use the opportunity to show off a little by dribbling or gargling. When you’re ready, you can gulp down your man cum without tasting anything but your drink.

Anal Toys

If you want your man to experience a mind-blowing orgasm, a bit of anal play might make things that much more intense. With anal toys like butt plugs or anal massagers, you can stimulate his prostate while you suck him, and he might experience an extremely powerful orgasm known as a super-O.

The more powerful his orgasm is, the more intense your swallowing experience will be, and it will leave your man begging you to give him head morning, noon, and night.


If you want to make sure that you are having as much fun as possible whilst swallowing cum, you may want to introduce a vibrator into the mix. You can use the vibrator to stimulate yourself whilst you suck him, and then when he’s finally ready to cum, you’ll be having a great time, and you’ll be in the moment.

Whilst you’re consuming his cum, he will be able to see how much you’re enjoying it, and this will make things much more enjoyable for everyone.

Debunking the Myths

Swallowing cum is nothing more than a fun and sexy way to finish a guy off, but for some reason, there are a ton of myths surrounding it, and why you shouldn’t do it. I’ve gone to the lengths of debunking these myths so that you can enjoy consuming your man’s load without any reservations.

“You Can Catch STDs from Swallowing Cum”

Performing oral sex on an infected person can transmit sexual infections and diseases. However, this has nothing to do with cum, so it really doesn’t matter if you spit or swallow. Consuming will not increase your chances of catching the infection.

If you think your man may have an STI or you’re not 100% sure who else he’s been sleeping with, then it’s best to stay protected and use a condom. If you’re giving him head whilst he’s wearing a condom, he won’t be able to cum in your mouth anyway.

“Swallowing Cum Makes You Fatter”

This is one of the crazier myths I’ve heard about consuming cum, and I really have no idea how it became a thing. Word on the street is that cum is high in calories, meaning that eating your man’s load regularly could cause you to gain weight.

Don’t worry; this is completely fictional. According to research, one serving of your man’s love juice has about the same amount of calories as a can of diet coke.

“You Can Get Pregnant From Swallowing Cum”

I know this might seem obvious to a lot of people, but I’ve had a surprising number of questions about this over the years, especially from younger people.

Let’s be clear, swallowing cum can not get you pregnant. Since your digestive and reproductive systems are not in any way linked, there is no risk of pregnancy from oral sex or eating cum.

However, if you are having unprotected penetrative sex, and then you switch to oral for him to finish, you can’t be 100% sure that you won’t get pregnant from this. Sometimes, guys can let out a little bit of ejaculate known as precum, which can, in some cases, contain sperm, and therefore can get you pregnant.

“Cum Tastes Awful and Swallowing is Gross”

As I mentioned above, the idea that cum swallowing is gross is something that many guys would disagree on. Swallowing is a really popular fetish, and videos can be found all over most mainstream porn sites. Although I can’t speak for all guys, my experience is that guys love having their cum consumed, and they don’t find it gross in the slightest.

However, if you find the idea gross, it could make it harder for you to consume your guy’s cum. It is more of a mental battle than it is a physical one, and gagging only really occurs if you have the idea in your head that the fluid you’re about to swallow is really gross.

Some people go on and on about cum tasting bad, but the truth is, cum barely tastes of anything; it simply has a light salty flavor. The texture of cum can be shocking, as it is kind of slimy and thick, which may be hard to swallow if you aren’t expecting it.

If you can get over the idea that cum is a super gross fluid, you may find that you actually enjoy it. Just like essential oils, whipped cream, or champagne, cum is a sexy fluid to play around with, and you may be shocked at how erotic cum swallowing can be for both the giver and the receiver.

What to Do If You Don’t Want To Swallow

If you’ve got this far in the article and you still aren’t convinced about the joys of swallowing, that’s totally OK. Swallowing isn’t for everyone. If you don’t want to do it, there are still a lot of sexy ways that your guys can finish, without you having to ingest his semen. Here are some of the hottest things you can do to make your man’s orgasms immense.

Let Him Give You a Facial

Facials are really the next best thing to swallowing cum. Lots of guys find showering their partners in their ejaculate very sexy, and if you don’t want to consume his cum, it’s definitely something to try.

The likelihood is that your man will be super excited that he doesn’t have to shoot his load into tissue, and this will make his experience that much more enjoyable. If you want to make the facial even sexier give him some intense eye contact as his cum hits your face. Trust me; he’ll love it. 

Let Him Cum On Your Body

Another option is to let your man cum onto your body. If he’s an ass man, back-up on him when he’s about to blow and let him shoot his load on your butt, or he may prefer to cum on your breasts instead. If you want your guy to have the best experience, ask him where he’d like to finish and choose the one that you are most comfortable with.

Catch It In Your Hands

Another super sexy way to finish off your man is by catching it in your hands. This will feel much more erotic and intimate than catching it in a tissue, and your man is sure to enjoy it that little bit more. Plus, if you want to play with it a little, or rub it on yourself, your man is sure to love that too.

If you’re still toying with the idea of swallowing, catching it in your hands is a good way to ease yourself into it. You can lick the cum off your hands to have a taste without having to eat the whole load. If the taste isn’t too offensive, you may decide to try swallowing next time you suck him off.

Catch It With Your Panties

If you want to keep all your body parts cum-free, the next best option is to catch it with your panties. Silky panties or soft cotton panties work the best, as both materials will feel nice on the end of his penis. You can still be a part of his big finish and catch the cum for him, but you don’t actually have to touch it or taste it.

Final Thoughts

Swallowing cum is a fun way to spice up an oral session, and if you want to please your man, it’s worth trying at least once. Ladies, don’t overthink it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how arousing swallowing your man’s cum can be.
