We recently asked the members of BuzzFeed Community for their best oral sex tips.
Here's what they had to say about making it even more awesome, whether you're on the giving or receiving end. Because when it comes to giving head, everyone should be thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Disclaimer: There's probably no list of tips where every item will appeal to every person. So take what you like and leave the rest. Also, it's important to talk about any new or different sex things with your partner before trying them. Consent is everything; please enjoy these tips responsibly!
1. Find a position that works for both of you.
2. Tell your partner what you like and ask what they like — either before or during.
3. Look up.
4. Be enthusiastic and have fun with it.
5. To get around a penis-induced gag reflex, try fake yawning.
6. Or you can try this nifty hand trick.
7. If you're going down on a vagina, learn these breathing and jaw techniques.
8. Go ahead and take some time to find the clitoris.
9. Use so much spit. So much.
10. Or try flavored lube (water-based) if you need some extra moisture.
11. Get a rhythm going.
12. Try fake deep-throating.
13. Or try actual deep-throating — slowly and carefully.
14. But also don't neglect the tip of the penis.
15. Start slooowwwww.
16. Make a "come here" motion with your finger while going down on a vagina.
17. Get the legs in on the action.
18. And maybe the hands, too.
19. Use your tongue and the roof of your mouth to create suction on the tip of a penis.
20. Make some noise while you're down there.
21. If there are balls, really make sure they feel ~included~.
22. If something feels fan-fucking-tastic, let them know.
23. And if something is working, KEEP DOING IT.
24. Let the person receiving head get on top.
25. Throw an ice cube in your mouth if your partner is ~cool~ with that.
26. Or put something bubbly in your mouth (before a penis).
27. Massage that area between the balls and the butt...really.
28. Try for simultaneous sucking and licking.
29. Use the underside of your tongue, which is super-soft feeling.
"I stick the tip of my boyfriend's penis UNDERNEATH my tongue. I know it sounds strange, but follow me: The really soft skin under your tongue apparently feels very similar to a vagina. With the tip under the tongue, you can massage the whole tip with it. Just be careful with your teeth!"
