In order to know the taste of semen, it is important to first gain some knowledge about the composition of it. About 96% of semen is water and only 2% of it is sperm. The rest consists of fructose, which nourishes sperm; sodium bicarbonate, which protects sperm from the acidic environment in the vagina; vitamin C, which keeps sperm healthy; and several minerals, such as phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and potassium.
It is due to these proteins, enzymes and minerals that the basic taste of semen is slightly warm and salty. Some may also describe it as slightly sweeter, while others (though not many!) may describe semen as tasteless.
