If diving into the wet and wild world of bucking hips, ear drum shattering screams of ecstasy, quilt-staining and squirting sessions sounds like fun, stick around to learn some lesser known ways to please your partner with these oral sex tips, tricks and techniques.

Getting Started with Cunnilingus

As comedian Ron White said, “A clitoris is as sensitive as an eyeball. Don’t go touching it while it’s dry.” This extreme sensitivity and desire for moisture are the cornerstones of why women love to receive oral sex. The wetter the better! Don’t be afraid to get lubed up, sport gravity defying hair and feel like your in need of a towel or two. It’s all part of the merrymaking.

Prior to going down, take a look in the mirror sometime and practice your soft tongue versus hard tongue. Soft tongue is a floppy, slapping kind of relaxed muscle which is ideal for clitoral excitement. Hard tongue looks pointier, is firmer and is well suited for penetrative cunnilingus. Practice makes perfect, and a smooth transition between hard and smooth tongues will be noticed and appreciated! Once you’re both ready, make sure she is in a comfortable position, start slow, be enthusiastic, listen to her, heed her guiding hands and hang on for dear life.

Some women like a circular tongue motion, such as a swirling clockwise or counterclockwise motion. Others like an up and down (nodding yes) movement from the vaginal opening to the clitoris. Others like a side to side (nodding no) motion, which causes less direct contact. I think a combination of all three is the best, but everyone is different. Try each way and see which one gets the biggest reaction.

Anatomy and Getting to The Good Stuff

Guys, look down. Do you see your nipples? That’s because in the womb, you were originally an XX. See the head of your penis? This is your former clitoris. The clitoral hood is the female equivalent of uncircumcised foreskin on males.

This extra skin serves as a protective barrier from fabrics and other irritants. It also protects the sensitive area from temperature changes and overstimulation. Pulling back this skin is very important, whether you are putting a condom on an uncircumcised penis, or performing cunnilingus. If you fail to move the hood aside, by spreading the labia, clitoral stimulation will be indirect, through the hood.

Since the clitoris and the head of the penis are so similar, it only makes sense for some women to really enjoy suckling sensations on the clitoris, just like men like sucking feelings on their head. However, there is no need to go overboard with this. You can always suck harder, if they request it, but you can’t take away the pain from a too-hard suck so easily. So, when it comes to sucking the clit, start very softly.

Once the clitoris becomes erect, it will jut out from under the hood and will be easier to access. If you have trouble holding the labia back while munching on her mound, ask her to hold them or get her to sit on your face, which will naturally spread her labia apart, simply from the wide legged stance of the face sitting (feet flat on the ground, like a squat). Just be sure to have a safe word or hand signal if your oxygen supply is cut off, lest you die a heavenly death of vaginal suffocation.

It Ain’t Alphabet Soup

The myth of orgasms occurring through the forming a sequence of alphabetical letters onto the clitoris in order to induce pleasure, must be put to a stop. This is a fruitless task that results in no gratification and is a waste of time and effort. A much more stimulating way to go from A-Z is through audible sounds, which create vibrations on the clitoris, much like an egg or bullet does. Low pitches create the most vibrations, which could be why women tend to prefer lower pitched voices (also a sign of a high level of testosterone in their partner).

In fact, dolphins perform cunnilingus through sounds vibrations as well. Generally, a “mmmmmm” sound, similar to the noise made when delicious food is being savored (how appropriate), is preferred. Just be sure to keep the airflow away from the vaginal opening, lest air gets trapped inside the vagina which can cause serious health problems and uncomfortable sensations and subsequent sounds.

Picky About Pubes?

If you have a pubic hair request, casually make it known beforehand. Perhaps you do not enjoy having pubes in your teeth or stuck in your throat. Maybe you find bare genitalia to be too child-like for your taste. No matter what you prefer, your partner is not psychic. Let them know in enough time for them to actually accommodate your preference. If you wait until you’re in the middle of the act, it will likely be distracting and somewhat annoying to be nitpicked while being pleasured.

Folks need not be shy about stating facial hair preferences either. With the uprising in hipster ‘staches and beards, there may need to be a talk about the tickling or rough effect that coarse hair can have on a vagina. Some people with vaginas may prefer a goatee to a stubbly chin, and some may not. Ask, and they’ll let you know whether your flavor savor stays or goes.

Cunnilingus and Menstruation

It is perfectly healthy, normal and natural for vaginas have a variety of types of discharge. Some fluids are clear like lube, while others are white and thicker or have a stringy quality. Do not be alarmed if you encounter grool while they’re making you drool. Additionally, if you are hesitant to be around menstruating vaginas, communicate this notion beforehand as well.

Remember that before menopause, some women will have bloody discharge for 25% of their adult lives. Seems like a lot of times this is forgotten because it is not shown in porn and because of separate bathrooms.

Cunnilingus-Menstruation---

Period sex is perfectly safe, as long as the normal safety barriers are in place, but if this skeeves you or your partner out, communicate this before getting into a compromising position.

As long as both partners are in agreeance that this isn’t a problem, here is a little tip for mess avoidance during menstruation: keep your tampon or softcup in place during cunnilingus (or to put one in if you wear pads ordinarily). This will keep the blood flow on the inside of vagina.

Cunnilingus: Proceed with Caution

Staying safer during oral sex is super important, and is the most commonly overlooked source of getting/giving STDs. Dental dams, gloves and condoms are all available for safer oral sex and are an essential elements in personal safety. Using dildos and vibrators are a multi-taskers best friend when it comes to cunnilingus.

If you have abrasions or cuts on your hands, this can be a better way to stay safe from the exchange of bodily fluids than through traditional fingering or manual sex means. Another option is to have her ride on a suction cup toy, like the Gorgeous G, which leaves your hands and mouth free to explore her other erogenous zones.
