OK, it may seem a little obvious that you've got to drink plenty of water. But the benefits of water don't end with avoiding dehydration. The holy grail of sex has been the search for a food or drink that will make semen and vaginal secretions taste more pleasant. And there are plenty of contenders. Some people swear by pineapple juice, cinnamon or parsley -- all of which may help, but a few ounces of pineapple juice at the end of the day isn't going to cover up the triple venti latte you had at 9 a.m. What comes out of us will always be the same stuff that goes in, and certain foods -- such as asparagus, coffee, garlic and red meat -- make your bodily excretions taste worse.

Hydration is the only surefire solution. While you can't completely eliminate the effects of the garlic meatball sub you had for lunch, you can dilute the effects of the chemicals you're putting into your body. Drinking at least 2 liters (67 fluid ounces) of water a day should do the trick. It takes about 24 hours to flush out from your body what you've eaten, so keep that water coming.
