Ask The Batemaster: Honor Your Semen

Something I urge you to consider, regardless of how often or how rarely you decide to ejaculate is this: HONOR YOUR SEMEN!

QUESTION: I love the bate as much as anything in life, but the only drawback is it can sure be messy! I mean, wet, and that gets cold so soon. I’m already in my 20’s, but I still spurt halfway across the room, sometimes several times a day. I’m a big-time gusher. Should I shoot into a sock, like I heard about? What are some other ways to deal with all this goopy semen everywhere?

RESPONSE: Well, unless you choose to take up edging or semen retention, which means to deliberately NOT ejaculate so often, there are some practical alternatives. Yes, I remember when I was in my late teens and early twenties sometimes feeling flooded with an abundance of semen! All over everything. Sure, the sock thing works, and maybe you already keep “cum rags” around or use a lot of tissue and paper towel for clean-up.

Something I urge you to consider, regardless of how often or how rarely you decide to ejaculate is this: HONOR YOUR SEMEN! Don’t treat it like a waste product, or just an inconvenient annoyance to immediately be cleaned up, thrown away, or the evidence hidden. Even if you “shoot into a sock” or a cum rag, deal with the semen consciously, as something of value, to be treated honorably. Apply full awareness to its disposal.

Consider how your semen truly is the essence of your body and of who you are, containing all the chromosomal DNA required to create your offspring genetically. It is, in a literal sense, the distilled and most potent product not only of your body, also of all the ancestors leading to you and everything you are as a human being. So, deal with it consciously. Some men (like me) have a habit of eating their seed, which I began to do at age 12 or 13 when I first ejaculated. Unlike some, I love the taste and consistency, plus it always prevented making quite such a mess. It’s also like taking a sacrament, quite honestly.

That strikes me as a decent way to honor your semen. Or if the thought makes you feel squeamish, you can smear your semen on your body, anoint your brow with it, and when you do wash it off, just mentally thank your body for this precious gift. If you use tissues or collect semen in your hand and don’t want to ingest it, perhaps dig a little hole in the soil of a houseplant or in a flowerbed outside and deposit it there. It’s a kind of recycling back to Nature. If you collect it in washables, put it in the laundry with (again) a little silent thank you to your body for the wonderful gift of your seed. Sometimes I’ve burned tissues I caught my seed in, in a fireplace, as a sort of “fire sacrifice.”

If this sounds a bit “woo-woo” and precious to you, be aware that the idea is not new at all! Since ancient times, in many traditional societies, men and boys were encouraged to place their semen in holes in the fields to add to the fertility of the soil in a magical or spiritual sense. Today, this is also a nice bit of consciously shifting from considering it a “mess,” or a “waste product,” to something precious and worthy of a little care to dispose of it in a meaningful way. It becomes part of honoring masturbation as a valuable and honorable thing.

Of course, as I practice semen retention now, I seldom require such recourse, but in truth, I am even more reverent of it when I do ejaculate. This conscious treatment of semen can serve as part of savoring the afterglow of your sessions, and fully absorbing the amazing pleasure you have generated.

    I too, as a young teen and adult, used to ejaculate and quickly clean up “that nuisance.” Now and then I would eat a nice load of pre-cum but lose interest in eating my cum following ejaculation. I used to look forward to masturbating after getting high on pot. I ate my sperm more frequently when I was high as a kite. Maybe because the orgasms was so intense when high. I gave up on all drugs self alcohol. Now, as an older, much more experienced and appreciative masturbator I eat my semen each and every time. I kind of told myself about 8 years ago that it was such a waste to ignore my semen. As my bate sessions have increased in intensity and my reverence for cock, masturbation and semen/ seed have become apparent I always look forward to my ejaculations and the communion between me and mankind, yes-man kind. I love the taste and texture of my semen and sometimes say a prayer to God, Jesus, cock god Priapus and myself for the great gift of semen/sperm prior to my consumption. Eating my semen also saves on any cleanup. Did I already mention i love to eat my load of fresh, hot delicious cum?

    I love the thought of semen as a sacrament. What you describe, and the history of regarding semen as precious, makes so much sense. It might even inspire me to ingest mine more. Right now it always goes into about three Kleenexes that wind up on my computer table before getting flushed Lol. Sometimes it goes inside my wife. But yes, respect the semen! Great article

    Interesting points of view. No idea that some would sow their seeds in the fields but sure why not. When you think about it, semen’s an amazing gift – of life. And as bators many of us thinking nothing of it except its kinda gooey & messy. And those early days of sex and exploring and how we always had to be careful about where we sowed our seeds. Sex ed in my day was pretty poor & gals would end up with the burden of being pregnant (and scorned) and having to figure what to do with their lives. Yet sperm is a big part of who we are as bators. These days I’m pretty much a 1/2 tissue sort of bator. Years past I was more of a cum rag user.

    Always horny when gardening anyway, whenever I plant a new tree, shrub or flower, I masturbate over it and ejaculate onto the root ball prior to covering it over with soil. It’s a little ritual I’ve done for years, welcoming the new plant life to my space here and encouraging a healthy life for it. My gardens are vibrant!
    Otherwise, yes, when bating and cumming, rubbing my semen into my skin is my preferred method. I also have a pair of black briefs I’ve put over 100 loads into that I keep on display next to my woodstove. The mix of hickory smoke and my dried seed makes for a heady aroma.

    Great advice, Bate Master!
    I practice retention, which is my way of honouring my seed _it gets reabsorbed into your system instead of being expelled. However, when I do ejaculate, I think a respectful way of treating your semen is letting it land on your belly, feeling its warmth for a while.

    The Batemaster here describes a place I’ve finally arrived at… finally honouring my seed. And I can thank BW as being the primary catalyst.

    When one thinks about why men generally discard and mistreat their semen after ejaculating, I suppose it’s rather obvious: we’re raised to basically detest anything that comes out of our bodies – shit, piss, snot, saliva, sweat… even blood. So why would semen be any different? And certainly few of us were ever educated, coached or enlightened at an early age about the true wonder and beauty of semen. The best we got was it was going to get a girl pregnant and that was a bad thing… unless of course you want to have babies and that only supposed to happen within the sanctity of marriage. So what a conundrum that puts us in when we start masturbating: primal sexual urges propel us towards constant masturbation, and social programming tells us how terrible it is. No wonder we all want to quickly clean it up, get rid of the “evidence” and treat it – literally – like shit.

    Now I do everything I can to not only honour my semen, but that of others. I still have some difficulty eating mine once I’ve had the orgasm, but always ask a partner to feed it to me (if there’s another person there). I like the taste of my seed. And really… we all should, because it takes us one step closer to self-acceptance.

    I’ve always liked eating my semen or rubbing it on my body, although I don’t do that all the time. What is your opinion on shooting it on my hand/pubes and letting it soak in and dry in my pubes? I’ve always really liked doing that, and thought it was a great way to “keep” my semen with me (until I take a bath of course). I would love to honor my semen every time I cum.

    Your perspective is interesting. I’ve eaten my own ejaculate from time to time when I’m in the mood. I had a vasectomy many years ago, so I don’t release sperm. I don’t think I dishonor my ejaculate when I don’t eat it. Thoughts?
