Giving head, eating out, tossing the salad - whatever you call cunnilingus, fellatio and anilingus, one thing's for sure: oral sex is an unbelievably satisfying, intimate act.
Unsurprisingly, people have been doing it since the year dot. In the city of Pompeii, which was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, erotic frescoes depict people doing it, while the Kama Sutra suggests some tricky tongue fun positions.
And the Victorians were a pretty creative bunch when it came to describing oral – from "prick eating", to "minetting" and "eating seafood".
But despite the fact it's been around for years, even the most enthusiastic "lick-spigot" probably has a few questions and hang-ups about oral sex.
So, we thought we'd put all our tips together to bring you one big guide!
Female ejaculation – or squirting – has been around for centuries. In fact, the Kamasutra (written in 200-400 AD) refers to ‘female semen’ that ‘falls continually’.
Despite hundreds and hundreds of years of documentation of the benefits of female ejaculation, even in the 21st century, we still know relatively little about it.
It’s only in recent years that female ejaculation has become a culturally desirable addition to a lady’s sexual repertoire. And quite rightly we say. After all, who doesn’t want to experience incredible orgasms?
So if the whys and hows of squirting and female ejaculation are leaving you with a thirst that needs to be quenched, let our expert guide help you embark on your very own orgasmic, and potentially very wet, adventure.
