Chus Martinez On Muff DivingPosted: December 23, 2012
Cunnilingus is an oral sex act performed on a female. It involves the use by a sex partner of the mouth, lips and tongue to stimulate the female’s clitoris, vulva, or vagina. A female may receive cunnilingus as part of foreplay before sexual intercourse, or as intercourse. As in all human sexual behaviour, both the techniques used in cunnilingus and an individual’s response to them are varied.
The clitoris is the most sexually sensitive erogenous zone for most women, but may be too sensitive to comfortably stimulate at times, especially in early stages of arousal. Author Shere Hite notes in The Hite Report that most women achieve orgasm easily from clitoral stimulation as part of cunnilingus or some other form of direct clitoral stimulation. Some sex manuals recommend beginning with a gentler, less focused stimulation of the labia and the whole genital area. The tip, blade, or underside of the tongue may be used, as can the nose, chin, teeth and lips. Movements can be slow or fast, regular or erratic, firm or soft, according to the participants’ preferences. The tongue can be inserted into the vagina, either stiffened or moving. The performing partner may also hum to produce vibration.
Cunnilingus may be accompanied by the insertion of finger(s) or a sex toy into the vagina, which allows for the simultaneous stimulation of the g-spot, and/or into the anus.
There are several positions for cunnilingus:
Missionary – the female lies on her back, with her legs spread, pulled up to her chest, on her partner or raised.
Doggy style – the female crouches on all fours, while her partner performs oral sex from behind.
Standing – the female stands facing her partner, who is either sitting or on the knees. However, in this position the clitoris is more difficult to reach and stimulate, and the female may have difficulty maintaining her balance when she is reaching orgasm because her legs quiver and shake.
Sitting – the female sits on a chair or uses some other support.
Mutual stimulation –the 69 position where both partners perform oral sex on each other at the same time.
Face-sitting – the female sits on or above the partner’s face. In this position the female has more control over her body movements and can guide her partner or auto-stimulate against the partner’s face.
There are numerous slang terms for cunnilingus, including “DATY” (for “dining at the Y”), “drinking from the furry cup”, “carpet munching”, and “muff-diving”. It is also commonly called “eating someone out”, “eating pussy” or “licking someone out”. Several common slang terms used are “giving lip”, “lip service”, or “tipping the velvet”. Older erotic literature refers to it as “gamahuching”, with some variation in the spelling.
A person who performs cunnilingus may be referred to as a “cunnilinguist”, and the phrase “cunning linguist” is also often used as a pun, implying oral skill of a different sort.
