Whatever your gender, oral sex can be one of the great pleasures in life. But as with all things, when it comes to mastering the art of the tongue, there is more to it than meets the eye.

So, arm yourself with some top tips for warming her up and prepare for the moment with some sensual sex toys and positions.

Want to elevate your cunnilingus from good to great? Here is everything you need to know about oral sex for her:

What is cunnilingus?

Let’s start with an easy one; what exactly is cunnilingus? Cunnilingus is essentially the technical term for giving a woman oral sex. The word cunnilingus has a Latin derivative, coming from the words cunnis (external genitalia) and lingus (to lick).

Although you can broadly define cunnilingus as giving a female oral sex, there is a little more detail to it than that. More specifically, cunnilingus refers to the oral stimulation of either the vulva or the vagina and commonly has a specific focus on one of the most sensitive areas of the vagina – the clitoris.

The act of cunnilingus encompasses a great deal of techniques, however, the act itself is confined to the vaginal area. Although you might like to incorporate some anal play such as rimming into your oral sex routine, this would technically be classified as analingus.

What does cunnilingus feel like?

If you’re a guy and wondering what cunnilingus feels like, it’s not something easily explained with words, it’s sort of a need-to-be-there experience. Having said that, the sensations a woman feels during cunnilingus is not too dissimilar to the feeling a guy gets when receiving oral.

It starts as a warm pressure and soon develops into tingling pleasure. If you hit the right spot and build up this pleasure gradually, you could even see your cunnilingus skills result in a great orgasm for your partner.

Be enthusiastic

Giving great oral sex is just as much about enthusiasm as it is about technique. If you go down on your partner and she senses that your heart isn’t in it, then it really is going to kill the moment.

Reassure her that you’re having a good time as well! Introduce a few moans of pleasure whilst you service her. Sure, you may not be getting physically stimulated at that exact moment, but it will be a massive turn on for her to hear you are enjoying yourself.

Explore her whole vagina

    Similarly, just as variety is the spice of life, it is also true when it comes to giving her great oral sex. There is nothing more frustrating than when a sexual partner becomes too fixated on one area of the vagina. The vagina has multiple erogenous zones, use them.

    Instead of just focusing your tongue action on her clit, explore the entire vaginal region. If you’re really feeling brave, why not incorporate some rimming into the equation? It’s only a short trip south and it can really add another dimension to your oral. Unsure about analingus? Check out our analingus guide for more information.

    Introduce a finger

    Just because you’ve promised her some mind-blowing oral sex, it doesn’t mean you can’t support your tongue action with some handy finger work. Whilst licking her vagina all over, use your finger to hit those spots the tongue simply can’t reach. If your jaw becomes tired, use of a finger is also a great way to fit in a quick rest period.

    Don’t neglect her body

    You might be getting well into giving her some amazing oral sex, but try not to forget, your recipient is more than just a vagina. There are several erogenous zones all around the body, don’t neglect them. Why not use your free hand to caress her breast or thighs? This could really add to her overall experience.

    It never hurts to ask

      As with all things sex, it’s always important to keep an open dialogue going with your partner. This should help avoid the dreaded situation where you are doing something she doesn’t like but she is too nervous or awkward to say anything. Ask her what she is enjoying and what she isn’t!
