cunnilingus basics

Cunnilingus Basics

Performing cunnilingus can be one of the most wonderful things you can do for a woman. It makes her feel loved, admired, sexy, and has the potential to give her an exceptional Orgasm. Many women prefer it to intercourse, and for those who require a large amount of clitoral stimulation, it is the easiest way to orgasm. Besides, lots of women expect it these days and men who perform great cunnilingus are always appreciated and considered fabulous lovers.

There is little more exciting to a woman than to know that her partner finds her delicious; meaning that you enjoy the taste, smell and feeling of her vaginal juices. At the same time, there is little less exciting to a woman than to think that you don’t like the taste and smell of her most intimate region. The smell of a woman is normally fairly mild and pleasant, being quite arousing to the partner. The type and degree of smell can vary considerably from one woman to another and at different times it may be stronger (e.g. closer to her period).

If your partner has a smell that is more than you can handle, or she doesn’t feel comfortable with you down there (thinking you won’t like the smell), suggest taking a nice hot shower or bath together. See the Bathing and Showering section for more details on how to make that bathroom experience a whole lot of fun for the both of you.

Before reading further, you may want to get acquainted with this region of her body by reading the Her Erogenous Zones section and having a look at the Female Diagram.

Remember, there is almost nothing you can do that will feel bad (so long as you are gentle), so relax! Any licking and sucking of the labia, vaginal entrance, clitoris, or anal area should feel great to your partner. Also, once you find something that works, don’t stray too far away from it unless you are moving to something that works better, or if you are teasing.


To be able to perform for extended periods of time, there are a number of exercises that can be used to strengthen the muscles in your mouth. Here are a few tongue exercises and positions for performing cunnilingus:

Exercise 1:

Stick your tongue as far out of your mouth as possible, and then try to touch your nose. Once you are in this position, hold the same muscle groups still and begin moving your tongue around. Practice in sets, moving the tongue clockwise, counterclockwise, and up and down.

Exercise 2:

With a loose jaw, point your tongue while simultaneously trying to keep your tongue in constant contact with the top and bottom your mouth. Once you are in this position, practice moving your tongue in and out of your mouth. For the more advanced student, try keeping your mouth closed and circling your tongue around inside of it, while of course, maintaining position. An extension to the advanced exercise is trying to dissolve a lifesaver held in your teeth from the inside out.

Exercise 3:

Stick your tongue straight out of your mouth, trying to keep your tongue flat and relaxed. Slowly, while holding the position, practice curling the wide tip of the tongue upward, downward and side-to-side. Practice in five sets of ten, holding each move for 2 seconds.

Exercise 4:

Keep your tongue relaxed and open your mouth. Move your tongue in and out of your mouth forwards and in both directions. Practice in five sets of twenty.

When my girlfriend and I are together this summer for our birthday I want it to be special. I want her to squirt on me. Would the shower be the best place? Plus when she masturbate me she worry about hurting me, any suggestions? I just want this time to be special and remembered.

Should I or shouldn't I?

I've gone down on my bf many, many times and everytime he goes down on me I tell him no. He's starting to get bugged when I don't let him go down on me. I'm really scared that I taste/smell bad. I don't know how to make myself more comfortable with him going down on me. What should I do? Another thing is: I can't orgasm. I just can't and now sex is boring, and it's getting on both of our nerves. He tries for hours to get me to orgasm but ends up getting annoyed and losing his hard. How can I get myself to orgasm?

if you're worried about the

if you're worried about the taste/smell try getting some flavoured lube, the durex strawberry and cherry flavoured lubes have a really strong taste and smell it might put your mind at ease

I got

I got eaten out by my boyfriend a few hours ago and it was amazing! I get a brazillian wax once in a while and the change really turns him on. I don't know if there is a certain way of a boy doing it but I think just feeling his lips and tongue against me is enough to drive me wild! The movement, I think he makes up while he does it. When I cum, he just shoves his face deeper between my legs. And it just makes me want him to pound me right after. It also leads to us having sex and me all excited and extra wet. It gets me to orgasmsm while he fucks me.

Sometimes he also fingers while he eats. I wish he does that more.


Well, my boyfriend and I have been dating for about 8 months now. We both lost our virginity to each other, we're 18. I started giving him oral about 2 months ago. I've done it about 5 times I think. Well, I really wanted him to try oral on me. He did for about 30 seconds and was done. He said it tasted weird and smelled weird. And I don't really know what to do... I wash and clean it. It's just a natural smell and taste I can't get rid of. But Now it makes me uncomfortable every time I have my pants off around him. Any suggestions on what to do to lighten the smell/taste? Or what to do to maybe intrigue him to try it again?


try flavoured lube, it has a strong smell and taste and may improve the experience for him


you might want to watch what you eat, believe it or not the foods you eat will cause a chemical reaction inside the body. this will cause different smells and tastes.
like eating steak and potatoes will cause a robust smell and taste, chicken and rice cause a light smell and taste, salads ( depends on dressing) and pastas (also depends on sauce) will give a sweet and pleasent taste and smell, fish and rice gives a bland taste and very little smell. try this and see if this works out for you.

Taste and smell

I have read in magazine articles that to improve the taste and smell you can just change your diet a bit. Pineapple is the most effective, but other sweet fruits should help. Avoid things with a strong smell like garlic and coffee. I really hope this helps :)

i am not sure what to do i am

i am not sure what to do i am hesitant on the entire oral thing but i wounder if maybe its something id need to orgasm my BF is hesitant on it too. what can we do to get more comfortable with the idea of preforming oral on each other?

How to encourage a man to give oral

It is easy. As he kisses you put your fingers into his hair with both hands and relax is head and slowly guide him to your stomach and react with thrill as he kisses and then gently push him further down and encourage him to start kissing your down-there. Once he starts make him understand where your clitoris button like thing is through gentle hand-mouth guidance and ask him to think it is the nipples of your breast. Once he sees you fly when he is down-there, you will find him do it himself whenever he is with you.

well, honestly, the way my

well, honestly, the way my boyfriend and I got more comfortable with it was just sitting together naked and exploring each other's bodies. Not sexually either. Just checking things out and asking questions to understand more.

Try playing a game. There

Try playing a game. There are some pretty good sexy board games out there that focus on exploration. One I like (and it's free is 4Play. You can download it to a pc. It has all kinds of levels you can set and plays like monopoly. Give it a try!

we do explore each other and

we do explore each other and ask questions but some how oral just doesent happen i have thougth about trying to do it on him but i never can get my self to i am not sure if its because it seems used for something else besides just sex that i cant do it or the taste i not sur ebut i cant bring myself to do i not grossed out but i not scared either i dont know what it is but i want to try oral.


what my ex and I did was first try licking each other 'down there' through clean underpants (or boxers in his case) and that was enough to drive the one being pleased wild and that made me want to please him more, so Id suck on him and then ended up giving him oral after, and with me I was alil unsure about him going down on me so I let him lick me through my panties and then as I got more turned on and he got more comfortable he would lick along the side of my panties then slide his tongue under which drove me wild, eventually he would slide my panties off and began licking my clit and eating me out, but always and I mean ALWAYS make sure both of you wash your privates fully before giving and receiving oral, one, its the only healthy thing to do, and two, it eliminates extra smell for you both, because a guys balls can begin to smell pretty damn bad if they arent washed once a day at minimum haha.
I hope this helps ^^ and also if you havent yet always get tested for std's before being with a new partner and even if u and ur bf have had sex or oral get yourselves checked out if you havent already

Thanks you is very helpful i will talk with him and see if he is up to it. thank you very much.

Going down is great

Nature has not endowed me with a big "instrument". There is nothing I can do about it. But I have never left a woman unsatisfied. I am a master in performing cunnilingus, dixit the ladies I did it to. For me, a pussy to lick is heaven. I take a long time to play with the lady's body before I reach her "down". My caresses with my fingers, my lips and tongue make them flow and I swallow those lovely juices eagerly. And am happy when they scream of joy.

what does pee tast like. my

what does pee tast like. my girl wants us to try eachothers pee one night. i said to do it in the shower but i want to know what it tasts like.

Even though pee is I think

Even though pee is I think 80% or so water, I don't think that's a good idea... The best bet is that it tastes the way it smells though.


omg i got wet just reading this ,i get turned on easily if my bf was here i would fuck him so hard

Look. I can eat my girl

Look. I can eat my girl everyday, before or after meals. I love the taste of her pussy. esp when she cum!! wonderful. think im a pro at that now. she grabs my head and pull me in, she sometimes cum so hard she screams. then I eat all the cum, gives her even more pleasure... Love the look on her face at that time because I know she feeling me.

guys help me

My man has started to go's down on me more lately cause i told i LOVE it we use to not do it but now we do but he says after like 3 minutes that his tongue and jaw ect hurts i would LOVE for him to do it longer cause it feels SOOO blasted good what should i do ???????????????????/

For those who are nervous...

I just wanted to reply to all of you who are really nervous about starting and doing a good job once you've decided to dive in (wink) - just TALK with your partner about your desire to proceed, but let her know you're shy about it and/or are afraid you won't do it right. I can only speak for myself, but I think it's really sweet for my partner to communicate with me than to have him *think* he knows what he's doing and end up hurting me or having me worry if I say something it will hurt his ego. And I'm not sure why, but it excites me when he shows vulnerability. It makes the sex even more pleasurable to me because we're proceeding together. (Talking during sex, especially with stuff like this, is a total turn-on for me.) And I agree w/ the author and previous posts - get some books on it and just ASK her as you're going along, "Does this feel good?... What about this?" As others have said, you'll know by her being totally into it that you're doing a good job. And if her bush bothers you, ask her to trim it. With my first partner, I was so niave I had no clue some guys preferred that. He was very sweet to gently ask me. I guess the big theme of my post here is to communicate, communicate, COMMUNICATE =)

I've never been eaten

I've never been eaten choice..
but by the comments I do! But a question do guys prefer it shaved or not?? N its kinda imbarsssin to

wide one
to shave or not to shave..

she keeps herself trimmed fairly short, but i prefer her to be freshly shaved. i shave her pussy for her at least once a week, by the time i'm finished shaving her, she's already getting wet.
i slip a fresh thong onto her, and start my pussy adventure. i've made her cum through her thong, as well as pantyhose.
nothing sexier than the sight of a shaved pussy with sheer pantyhose.
i can make her cum from licking her pussy lips, slipping my tongue inside her so sucking on her clit in 30 seconds, or 30 minutes. i bring to to the edge of cumming several times before she actually does.
i use not only my tongue but multiple fingers in her pussy and ass.

what's silly is that you

what's silly is that you think all men like the same thing

I would advise professional

I would advise professional waxing instead of shaving, just based on personal experience. Never wax yourself! And it's a great feeling for you to be hairless too. I'm definitely hooked on it and can't stand to get too hairy now.

My first time and for many

My first time and for many years after, I was always going down on her with a full bush of hair. It didn't matter to me then since I just loved eating pussy. But we started to trim and it was much nicer. I got to taste my first shaved pussy not too long ago and I must admit, it was a very nice change of pace to feel that smooth skin with no hair. But to answer your question, I prefer the shaved or closely trimmed pussy when I give oral. I also like the looks of a well maintained pubic hair area, but it doesn't need to be shaved.

loves pussy

Hairy or shaved it dose'ent make any difference..

i've been trying to convince

i've been trying to convince my partner that eating out is an OK thing, he wants to try it but he's too scared to try. he gets to my mounds and stops... ik i don't smell bad because every time we get intimate is right after i shower. any suggestions?

just give him head and the

just give him head and the best orgasm he wont forget and tell him to do the same to you. or say if you do me, i'll do you HARD

well.. seduce him, and

well.. seduce him, and educate him how to do cunnilingus. tell him what exactly would you like from him to do, and give him instructions on how to do it! if you don`t know how to do it too, then I suggest you to find some instructions on the topic. I learned a lot from a book by Jennifer Dobrowitz, but before that, I was scared as your partner is... identically :)

flavored lube lol best of

flavored lube lol best of luck and btw make sure ur shaved if not its a deal breaker thats why i dont go down on my girl i need a damn machette to cut it all down

I love licking my partners

I love licking my partners pussy...and she likes it as well,but I think I could be better. What can I do to get better?


try a man you might get to enjoy him he might give you everything you desire in oral sex and love yoou and respect your every wish


Do you loose respect for her after she gives you a blow job ,to me there is no difference ,alot of women call you a pervert for eating there pussy but they then must be perverts to for b j ing you, i see it as something to love and enjoy should be no name calling just enjoy the pleasure of itthere is so much to love on a woman even her sweet tight ass

Ok I am a lesbian women but

Ok I am a lesbian women but my gf says she is jus not into sex I mean she has been with more women then me but we only have sex like twice a month...and even when we do have sex she now like getting head but she dnt give it that much...I dnt knw what to do you have been together for 2 years now but our sex life is a it wrong leaving someone cause they dnt like sex sometimes I think she is scared of pussy!!!!!

i realy love being eaten, my

i realy love being eaten, my bf is reall good at it. but ive always wamted to do it with a girl, im bi. that reminds me, any girls want to send me pics, my bf and me like lookin at them, message me ;)

love sucking a pusyy.

My GF taught me how to suck her pusyy,and i really enjoyed kissing and licking her pussy.
Her moans used to drive me mad even now.

whats all the fuss?

Im probably just weird but i kind of like going down on my girlfriend when she hasn't showered. I dont think id ever turn it down because it "smells bad" or is too hairy. I mean, she shaves but if it was hairy it wouldn't make a difference to me, id eat her just the same. I go down on her every single day, and i personally love the smell and taste regardless of how clean she is. I love going down on her after she has soccer or goes for a run and is all sweaty and flushed...thats just my thing

I heartily agree! I'll go

I heartily agree! I'll go down on my wife any time, day or night, regardless of how "clean" she is. In fact, I PREFER going down on her when she's "not clean," especially after a hot summer day! I love that sweaty, musty smell and taste. My wife is very hairy down there, she never shaves there, and the hair just traps the smell in. The smellier, the better! I know I'm in for a treat when I can smell her before I even pull off her panties!!

Good point...

I agree. There's nothing better than going down on my wife's pussy at the end of the day, when it's all sweaty and stinks. I love having to part her long, thick, tangled and matted hair to get to her smelly pussy lips...

Why the fuck don't I ever

Why the fuck don't I ever meet men like you :(

Love it

My gf loves it when I go down on her and I love doing it, I like to tease her first all around her hot pussy but avoid the clit. Just all around and kiss her around her Arse hole. Then slowly slide my tongue onto her clit and build up the speed. She totally loves it. I always slide a finger in wiv one hand while I'm doing it and play wiv her Arse hole wiv the other. When she's closer to orgasm I slide a finger slowly into her bum. It's quite a balancing act but basically I'm down on her clit with a finger in her hot pussy and another in her sexy bum. She totally loves it and has massive orgasms when I play with her bum when I do it.

ok can someone answer a

ok can someone answer a quick question for me plz? is it ok if you put your tongue in the girls pussy?

There's no rules, try it. My

There's no rules, try it. My gf loves it but some girls don't. Just try it

Tongue in

Absolutely. Anything goes as long as she likes it. That's the idea. I gently lick her pussy lips and slowly let my tongue in then up and down her whole pussy flicking her clit. My wife usually spreads her legs wider when she's into it and things go on from there. Remember, the idea is to please her and enjoy the view and the taste!
