Oral Sex

Oral sex is when the mouth, tongue and/or lips are used to stimulate the genitals. The official term for oral sex on a woman is cunnilingus; on a man, fellatio.

Common slang terms for oral sex include “giving head,” “going down,” “blow job” (on a man) and “eating out” (on a woman). The term “69” means simultaneous oral sex.

    Thoroughly agree. The best.. the best.. the best. Awesome sensation, thoroughly enjoyable and you will go for more.. believe me.
    I used to masturbate with my then bf on line but I so wished he would be there for oral sex. The hair brush handle was no where in comparison to what oral sex felt. LOL.

    • ????

      LOL i totally agree with there being NO comparison. Being eaten out..ugg best feeling in the world..But sadly I hardly ever let my bf do it for me anymore cause he told me he loves doing it but complains the whole time so i’m tired of it. But to the people who are doing oral and unsure about having sex: be careful,while you do oral you can totally loose all control and suddenly your having sex. Just make sure your ready πŸ™‚ And about how cum tastes….well i cant really describe it but its usually very warm LOL

        hehe u r so right. I love when my bf goes down on me. I have started doing it for him too. He always says he likes my soft sexy lips on his co** We do a lot of oral whenever we get a chance. Mostly he does it on me. Thts so rite, it gets you so out of cntrol, u cannot help but go all the way. I know I can trust him and so it dont bother me when tht happens. I just love it wen he makes me feel tht way.. so helpless and wanting him to go all the way becoz it feels so good. We’ve done it in the car so many tmes. Like we go for a drive and then there is this lonely spot and he makes me do it.

    That ewwwww is a typical girly comment. OMG you guys dont know how good it feels. It is awesome. I know it may feel awkward the first time but it is the most fantastic feeling.
    When I lost my virginity in grade 7, I was scared when it was all happening. The guy was my friends older brother and I was alone with him one day and while I was changing he walked in on me. I think he knew I had a heavy crush on him. He started kissing me and doing things like fingering and stuff and though I really liked how it felt I was so scared. He knew I was scared and he told me to lie down and opened my legs and started licking me and sticking his tongue in and out of my vagina. I lost all self control and I just kept wanting him to keep doing that and not stop. It seemed to happen quite naturally, I kept holding his head and directing him to my vagina and I kept opening my legs so he could use his tongue deeper. It was a great feeling. He was so good and he kept going for a couple of hours. OMG I was so so out of control and I let myself have sex with him. It was my first time ever. No one found out. I just prayed that nothing bad would happen and of course nothing bad happened. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    • angela

      Yes I agree. The first time a guy opens your legs wanting to stick his tongue in is so scary and weird but you want him to do it. I loved when tht happened to me and I didnt resist. I got so carried away I let him go all the way. it was an awesome experience.

    Im 15 and ive been with my boyfriend for 2 years hes been wanting me to give him oral for a while and i had told him to wait and hes a virgin since i am his first girlfriend , could he still have a std?

    • Questionable

      Well he can if he has touched someones infected area on them. But I dont think he has. You might get tested just in case

  • Smileyface

    I wanted to. I’m 15 turning 16 in a couple of months, and I feel like I want to, but I just think about how I will be looked at after I do it.
    I feel like I’m ready, but when the moment comes, I don’t really want to…
    I’m confused

    • madelyne

      seriously don’t do it .boys find it disrespectful to spit.and its dirty down there and don’t smell good.they might skeet on ya as well.just nasty

      • Nobody

        (madelyne)
        I don’t know who you have been with, but they shouldn’t be dirty down there and it shouldn’t smell bad.
        (Smileyface)
        You don’t have to tell anybody, you can ask your boyfriend not to tell either.
        If he does tell then he doesn’t care enough about you and you should dump him.

    • michellegirl

      hey sweety.. you have to make suree you are ready before you do anythng

  • Briannamariehi

    Lately Ive been feeling this urge to be eaten out by someone but I know its wrong and I go to church every week and I’m afraid if I do that I’d be too shamed to go back to church and I love going to church so much! Should I take the risk?

    • madelyne

      girl what would jesus do.if you want to try it wait till you get married then yu can do it every day without feeling ashamed or nasty.don’t let no one s tounge touch your vagina until tour married.hoped this helped

  • A girl

    When a guy cums on you, is there sperm in it? Coz I’m worried if I give a guy a blowjob, and I swallow the cum, the sperm will go inside me

    • Nobody

      Don’t worry about it.
      Yes, when a guy cums there is sperm in it, but the sperm is super small and harmless to your body (besides your vagina, but that is why you wear a condom).

      • madelyne

        don’t swallow it,even though boys think it’s disrespectful to spit, whos got their penis in your mouth and enjoying it,they got their end of the deal now you deserve yours.spit if you have to but i recommend you not to do it any more till you get married darling hope this helped.

  • JustWondering

    My bf wants to to do oral an I want to but I was wondering b4 I do, wht does it taste like??????

    • emma

      the taste of it changes. like if he was eating like sweet stuff its going to be kinda like sweet tangy like you know? and if he ate like something like regular food like cheeseburgers or like pasta or some shit its going to be like kinda salty…just kinda imagine it somewhat tasting like sweat if he hasnt ate anything sweet.

      • madelyne

        EWWWWWWWW

  • Rosalie

    I gave oral for the first time when i was 13 to my first serious boyfriend, when he broke up with me i was heartbroken and looked for love that would replace that hole in my heart that he left. I did it to another boy at a party but no one found out and then to one of my best friend’s exs. She’s still mad at me, but at the time it felt like it was a good idea – i don’t crave his love anymore, we’re just friends and we’ve both moved on and the hole is filled. People might call me a slut and say it was a bad decision especially for my age – but if you’re ready and so are they and it seems right at the time, well who’s stopping you?

  • Kiana

    @Virgin11 Honey, I am a 17 year old black girl and I used to have very low self-esteem because I was overweight. I did the exact same thing you’re taking about. I felt so bad about myself that I was willing to let anyone who called me pretty do what they wanted to me. It felt like a payment: He would pay me a compliment & I would do whatever to him in return. Honestly, it does make you feel better, but only for the moment. When you look back on it and think about the situation, you have an attachment to that boy and you’ll never forget but he only remembers you when he wants it again. And thats great that your faith in God is keeping you from doing those things because my faith kept (and is still keeping) me anchored too πŸ™‚ Just love yourself sweetie and embrace who you really are. πŸ™‚

  • Jilly98lol

    I have a boyfriend and he’s two years older then me. I want to have sex with him and he does too. We both waited a while for this. But why is it that when I am in the mood to have it he isn’t and when he is in the mood Im not?! My mother says its for the best. She doesnt like the idea. But she’s not me and I make my decisions. So why is that?

  • nickitay

    I’m 16 years old and I give my boyfriend oral and when I do it, he doesn’t do anything. He just sits or lays there. An when I’m finished, we just start playing around with video games or whatever and then the next day I ask him if he likes it and every time I ask him he says yeah and changes the conversation. I don’t know if he really does. How can I ask him without him changing the conversation and what can I tell him to do so that I know that he really enjoys it. Please help!

  • pretty.abigail

    i know i get that feeling too!!! He is always saying stuff like would you lose your vcard to me or like touches me in “areaas ” ! and idk wat to do like ill be sitting down on the bleachers and he’ll sit on the one upon me and open his legs and when we play 7 min. in heaven FOR FUN he pressures me to stuff !! but i think im in love with him but i wont do that stuff,, im NOT ready!! ive been ilove with him for 3 years but i try to stay away from him!

  • gilrie

    Haha what does it taste like when you swallow?

  • marisa45

    is it okay to suck dick becuz i think about it alot

  • Anonymous

    is it okay to suck dick because i think about it alot

    • AJMANETTI

      of course it’s okay,just remember not to bite while doing it. just tongue the sides up and down and suck the head and slide it in your mouth as much as you can,and have fun.

  • juliejuliejulie

    The first time I give a new guy oral, I never swallow. What I do is keep it in my mouth and kiss him, if he doesnt kiss me then I dont give him oral.

  • Lizzy

    well,im only 11years old and i want 2wait until im married but,a boy in my class says sexual things 2me,and i sometimes feel like doing some of the things.And when he says them,i start feeling tingly,and my vajj tingles 2.i dont kno what 2do,i want 2wait but,i want 2do it.I kno i should wait,cauze my momma is crazy,and i kno u could get a transmitted diease and a chance of being pregant,im gona wait but,when im a teenager?and he also touches me,on my boobs,my but he put his penis on my butt,and it turns me on,and he kissed me before.What should i do?

    • Ellie

      @LIZZY stay away from this boy. you are only 11 years old. he is pressuring you to do illegal things and it is not worth it. yes you feel tingly but there are other ways to cope with ur sexual urges. Boys only want one thing, to him ur just another slut that he knows will give him what he wants. The next time he touches you innapropriately tell him straight up that he needs to back off. You are not a piece of meat, and you will not stand for his crap!

      • Lesley

        First Of all babe your 11 years old you should still be playing with dolls.
        I get it your hormones are going crazy at these ages.
        And were in a horrible generation but you need to stay away from this dude. Tell your mom, your mom and you should have a great relationship don’t call her crazy, shes a mom they care about us daughters it’s good you know about dieases and stuff, pregnancy AND YES WAIT,

    • sylvii

      Your 11, w.t.h… WAIT seriously :/ … its good that you know your stuff about disease and being pregnant. If he is bothering you, talk to someone, like your parents, teacher, an older friend, family members…there is hundreds of people to talk to, Or simply kick him in the balls, don’t let ANYONE ever touch you, if you don’t want them too !

      • ReallTalkk

        That is really disgusting. e are like the same age and i’ve never wanted to blow anyone. It doesn’t matter your size but u should still have 100% self respect

    • Virgin11

      @Lizzy I am 2 and wanna wait. The boys at my school touch all areas on me and I have thoughts about giving the ones I like head when we’re n a relationship, but, being a Christian, I want 2 wait until marriage for anything. Also, I’m 11

      • Virgin11

        @Lizzy and I also want then 2 do it bc I have low self esteem bc of my barely there figure and b-cup boobs (the average @ my skool is a c)

    • Sexier_Than_Uu

      WAIT !! he might be just trying to get in your pants, then he wont talk to you again, You guys arent going out .. so why do “whatever” to just another guy you would see around. he sounds very sweet and a little freaky, but if you do go to 3rd base, or further… someone will find out ! Think Hard

  • Liz

    Does it affect your virginity?

    • KleeM

      No, virginity is when a boy pus his penis in your vagina

    • :)

      It technically doesnt affect it but in general I feel it does. So if you’re going to wait for marriage for sex, oral sex counts too.

    • Virgin11

      @Liz I think it does bc I’m a Christian and it’s all fornication

  • Aimee

    Does it matter if you spit or swallow? Is it bad to swallow?

    • KleeM

      It doesn’t matter, whatever you are comfortable with doing, most guys say they like it when a girl swallows over spitting but it all goes back to what you’re comfortable with

  • jaidia

    Can you still get a disease if its your first time and the partners first time doing oral?

    • JJ

      Yes you can… It’s important to remember that WHENEVER there is sexual contact and the transfer of bodily fluids, there IS a possibility of contracting a disease! For example, you do not need to have previous sexual contact to get herpes/cold sores. I have cold sores, and I got them from my parent, genetically. If I ever had an cold sore on my mouth, and kissed someone, they have a chance of getting it too, let alone if we have oral sex! Just be careful, and don’t always trust your partner! It’s up to you to protect yourself!

    • j

      yea you can you never know what people have now days
