5 Ways To Make Oral Sex Feel Better


Not only can oral sex feel great, but it can also be a fantastic way to build trust and intimacy in the bedroom. Sadly, a fair few people are put off by the fact that they might not get oral sex right, with some also being put off as they feel shy or embarrassed, even with a long-term partner.

With that in mind, here are 5 great ways to make oral sex feel better so that you and a partner can both enjoy the oral sex experience together:

  1. Get comfortable
  2. Don’t focus on the orgasm
  3. Keep communicating
  4. Try lube
  5. Tease with a sex toy

1. Get comfortable

Before you start, make sure that you are both in a comfortable position which you feel relaxed in. Pillows, cushions and duvets arranged properly can all help make the experience more relaxing, allowing you the opportunity to experiment with different angles and props to see what works for you.

2. Don’t focus on the orgasm

At one point or another, we’ve all maybe been guilty of concentrating too much on the end goal (the orgasm), which sometimes can spoil the act completely.

Some people can often be worried about the length of time it is taking them to climax during oral sex and hence get nervous that their partner is getting bored. Whilst those giving oral sex may worry that their partner is not climaxing because they are not enjoying what is being done to them.

The important thing is to concentrate on relaxing and enjoying the intimate closeness, even if oral sex doesn’t result in a climax.

3. Keep communicating

If you are one of those people who find themselves worrying about whether your partner is enjoying the oral sex they are receiving from you, it’s always worth checking in with them.

Sure, you can keep your eyes and ears open for the visual clues that your partner is enjoying the oral sex they are receiving, but this isn’t a sure-fire way to find out what they do and don’t like. Keep things simple and check in with them, ask them if they are enjoying what you are doing or if they would like you to try anything else. This should help you to relax into what you’re doing by removing the question mark around whether your partner is having a good time or not.

If you are receiving oral, be sure to give you partner feedback during the fun. This will help reassure them whilst ensuring they continue to do the things that make you feel great.

4. Try a lube

Ok, so this isn’t guaranteed to make oral sex feel better for the receiver, but who’s to say the giver can’t enjoy oral too?! Try some carefully distributed flavoured lube to mix up the taste and texture of your experience!

Why not try our Cheek Cheery flavoured lube for example? Enjoy the taste and aroma of cherries while you pleasure your significant other.

5. Tease with a sex toy

Although the mouth and tongue are the main pleasure-givers during oral sex, there are no rules to say that they must be used in isolation from everything else. Vibrators and intimate massagers can make the experience much more fun and enjoyable for both parties.
