Many people have a question regarding the taste of the urine. I know i get this question because of curiosity. No one wants to taste the urine unless you are drinking urine. This question arises when celebrity Cardi B ask on Twitter what is the taste of the urine. You might wonder that her Twitter account gets hacked, but it is not. It is the real question that Cardi B asked. Many website readers reach out to me with the same question. I have also seen similar questions on yahoo answers, Quora, and other forums. So i decided to write a post on this topic.

If you feel disgusted, then don’t worry; take a drop of urine on your finger and taste it. Don’t worry, guys i am not telling you to taste your urine. I also know that some people do urine therapy for skin.
