To me, semen smells kind of...mushroom-y? Not what those trees smell like, to my nose anyway!

Holy shiitake I never noticed these trees until this year. They're all over the campus I was on last spring as well--I wonder if my allergies just hit me a lot harder last year and my sense of smell was iffy? Anyway, gross.

neither half is objectionable, and in the context of this thread, i think it makes plenty of sense to be glad to hear so many people saying an experience you've never had is a terrible experience that might make you hate nature. at least you know you aren't missing out.

Yeah, do you find my gold-star lesbian status as objectionable? Or the fact that I like flowering trees, but not these crappy non-native trees that are way over planted?

It's called levity and while I do understand that it is not conveyed well over the Internet I do not understand how it becomes conveyed as my being a lesbian hater (not sure how I am even supposed to know you are one) but if that is how you roll by all means carry on.

Wow.

Anyway, semen smells like naan bread. When I lived in Russia someone told me this but alas there was no naan bread to be had anywhere to test the theory. Several years later I was eating a piece and had a sudden whiff of semen and noticed it for a long time after. Then, several months later I got a phone call at 2am from a third friend who'd been in Russia with us who had just had the same experience, and wanted to share.

Maybe all 3 of us ate in places where the waiters spunked on the naan bread? No idea how vegan naan compares, by the way.

Semen smells like a chlorine pool to me. And for someone who identifies as being (mostly) straight, the smell and texture really squick me out.

Basic amines such as putrescine, spermine, spermidine and cadaverine are responsible for the smell and flavor of semen.

beautiful. 1/2 of the amines are named after horrible smells.

it makes sense that it smells like chlorine, since sperm is also alkaline (to counteract the acidity of cervical fluids)

i remember making pretzels and thinking they had a similar smell. (i guess the baking soda/dough combo.)

Its true, this didn't sound like any sort of joke i've ever heard. I am not easily insulted, no worries. My post wasn't super obviously lesbian, its true. I just had really no idea at all at what you were saying. At all!

And <3 Panda! You are my favorite 70s feminist lesbian for political reasons only, and I won't judge what you are doing when not on the lesbo-bus with your lady-friend.

Totally had someone ask me to explain that bumper sticker a few weeks ago. He seemed a bit of a stoner.
