Today is the first time I've looked for an answer and your right, nobody has a serious answer. I haven't breastfed in six years but I thought that was it. But I also have implants so maybe that? I would bet its hormonal but I'm really hoping someone can post something that would make it better. If it makes you feel any better, you are not alone and I was so upset when someone told me they tasted funny. Doesn't sound sexy to me. I blamed it on the milk.
I first experienced this with my husband, the weird onion type taste, then a lover. I thought it was just because that was how they were built, nothing more. However it recently happened to me, where I was the one with the weird tasting nipples. I am a very hygienic person so it really freaked me out and has made me terribly insecure. I don't have implants so I know it's not that. I tried to think of what the three of us (my husband, my lover and myself) have in common; we all drink A LOT of coffee. I am wondering if that is the culprit? That and I've noticed as of late, I've not been drinking enough water. I don't know if that is what the cause is but I though it worth mentioning.
Try soaking a cotton ball in lemon juice and rub it on your nipples once a week. Works for underarm odor as well. Works for me...... Good luck and hope this helps.....
Onions, like garlic and chives have Sulfur compounds in them. It's what gives them their taste.
Sulfur is the 3rd most abundant in the body and 6th most in breast glands.
You are tasting keratin. It is a sebaceous fluid contained in the Montgomery glands of the areola. This substance works as a lubricant during breastfeeding. That would be its primary purpose in nature. Its secondary purpose would be to keep Daddy from stealing all of Mama's milk from the baby. It doesn't sound like it's working given the amount of persons on the internet seeking to have that question answered.
Still no answer, to all it's 2018 and my wife hasn't been pregnant, still she tastes like onions
Been looking for answers to this as well! My boyfriend recently told me my breasts always has a taste to them but I don’t know what to tell him that causes them to have an onion like taste. Even after I get out the shower and we get intimate I can taste and smell his mouth like onions. All I can think is maybe the soap I’m using? Maybe I should be using an unscented one instead of a strong scented one..
To anyone still questioning the strange nipple taste. First off, ladies... It's not just your nipples! Go ahead, give your man's nip a little tounge action, you'll get that same taste.
The issue isn't the nipple alone, that's only a contributing factor, the real culprit however, is natural bacteria in your mouth, mixing with keratin, which is naturally produced by our nips! (Yes, even males) a quick cure to this... Try brushing your teeth before any nipple play, the recent brush will eliminate the bacteria in your mouth, thus... Making the taste vanish! Have fun! #nippleplayforlife
Well various foods can create smells....onions of course, garlic and other foods. Bacteria particularly in the vagina can create smells as can bacteria on the skin. The type of contraception you use might affect vaginal taste. I can fairly will say that this probably does not represent a harmful condition. Infection in the vagina should be considered. Systemic illnesses such as diabetes can be considered but these can all be ruled out in one check up with OB or primary care. Do not forget that whatever you eat, will reflect on the content from your mammary gland which comes out of your nipple. Example, when you breast feed your baby, the same happens to your milk. There is also an other theory which underwire bras could be the cause of that problem. By wearing underwire bras, you are cutting off your mammary glands, your lymphatic and your circulatory system. In order to see a change, you should look to correct these problems. The fact that it has been happening a year also goes against an acute, infectious problem. So, diet, contraception, have a check up, some blood work. Good luck.
