Better cunnilingus?

Everyone likes different things. Here are variations and tips. Find out together which ones you both like. Want to check the basics again? Have a look at How does cunnilingus work.

Going down on a woman

Your neck will be more comfortable if you kneel down and the woman stands or sits. You'll have greater freedom of movement and you can touch other sensitive spots while you are licking and sucking.

The woman stands. You kneel down in front of her. Lick her labia and clitoris. At the same time, caress her inner thighs and groin area. Try licking and sucking her vagina and clitoris in the shower. Perfect if you want to make sure her vagina is clean.

You see a woman and a man here, but of course 2 women could do this too.

More? If she leans with her back against a wall, she might be able to lift 1 leg up and rest it on your shoulder. That makes it easier to reach her vaginal opening with your tongue.

The woman sits on the edge of the bed. Or a chair. Or on a table. Use your imagination! You kneel down in front of her. Lick around or directly on her clitoris. Lick her labia or in her vagina too. Getting faster, or slower. Pressing harder, or more gently. Use your tongue and your lips.

More? Push one or more fingers into her vagina as you stimulate her clitoris with your tongue. Have a look at ‘How does fingering work’.

Slightly different

You can lick and suck in different positions. The better you know each other’s bodies, the more you can try out. If the woman has more freedom of movement, she can help you find a good way to lick her.

This position is known as ‘69’. You lie on top of, or next to, each other with your heads at each other’s crotch. You lick each other at the same time. Don't forget to pay attention to her bottom and back. Caress them gently, or more firmly.

More? Keep in time with each other. Or rather, let your partner know how you would like to be licked by changing your tempo.

The woman gets on her knees above your face. Lick her labia and vagina with your tongue. Suck her clitoris gently with your lips.

More? Grab hold of her buttocks. Maybe she will lean back to stroke your belly or penis.
