Semen: spit or swallow?
Now comes the question you have, all this time, been pondering: to swallow, or not to swallow? There is the possibility that you yourself are in biological possession of an organ of a phallic nature, and therefore may appreciate the delightful sensation of having your semen swallowed as you orgasm.
Perhaps, you are not in possession of a penis biologically, but can sympathize with this person and want to bring them pleasure. But then again, perhaps you find semen somewhat repulsive, and have no wish to consume it, for fear of the health risks associated with the bodily fluid.

It is always healthier and safer (as well as sexier) to get tested for infection before jumping into an unprotected sexual encounter.
If the person whose semen you are swallowing does not contain infections, however, health benefits are a possibility. As semen is initially created by the body in the gonads and passes through the ejaculatory ducts, it mixes with viscous, fructose-rich fluids from the seminal vesicles, prostate and bulbourethral glands. As this fluid is biologically intended to assist the sperm contained in semen survive the treacherous journey through the female reproductive system and reach an egg, it is rich in a variety of natural vitamins, including zinc, protein, calcium and citric acid—the equivalent of a Weight Watchers protein shake.

The pleasure-inducing hormones oxytocin and serotonin can act as great mood-stabilizers and stress alleviators, and this in turn can build a stronger and more emotionally fulfilling relationship between the giver and receiver of the fellatio.
The emotional and healthful benefits of swallowing semen have often been theorized to be an evolutionary tactic to have women be more willing to come in contact with their partner’s semen, thus increasing the likelihood of pregnancy.
If you are a particular connoisseur of man jam, you may want to peruse Paul Photenhauer’s Semenology: The Semen Bartender’s Handbook, a proper guide to the mixologist’s use of the freshly harvested ingredient, as well as his other semen related cookbook Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes, which includes a variety of wittily named recipes such as “Man Made Oysters”, “Creamy Cum Crepes” and “Spunky Candied Pecans.”
But it must always be remembered that there is nothing to be ashamed about if you would prefer not to swallow. Swallowing should never be a precondition for sucking cock, and you should always communicate your intentions and desires to your partner(s) before potentially engaging in activities that may lead somewhere you would prefer not to go.
If you do like to swallow, whether you give head to reap the rewards of man jam, to develop a stronger bond with your partner(s) or simply to pleasure yourself and others, uninfected semen can improve your health and mental well-being, acting as a great part of your life, relationships and even diet.
