Why does semen sting? - discomfort allergy | Ask MetaFilter
Sex can be awkward. Maybe you were going down on your partner and opened your eyes at precisely the wrong time. Perhaps you or your partner was masturbating and that semen really went the distance. Either way, here you are. What do you do now? Getting semen in your eye can sting and burn in a way that might make you scared of serious damage. Semen contains components like sugars, enzymes, and acids, all of which can irritate your fragile ocular tissue.

It mostly affects women. Some common symptoms of sperm allergy are redness, swelling, pain, itching, and a burning sensation in the vaginal area. Symptoms usually start about minutes after contact with semen.
Beyond the irritation, you might understandably be worried about STIs and other complications. This is an itchy, sticky situation, and your first instinct will likely be to rub your eye. Touching or rubbing your eye could spread the fluid to other areas or push the semen deeper into your eye yikes. The World Health Organization has some tips for getting bodily fluids out of the eye.
