Cunnilingus is the act of using the mouth and tongue to stimulate the female genitals, especially the clitoris. The term comes from an alternative Latin word for the vulva (cunnus) and from the Latin word for tongue (lingua). 70% of women have reported never or seldom achieving orgasm during intercourse, and cunnilingus may be a way for women to achieve orgasm with a partner.
As in all human sexual behaviour, the variety of techniques in cunnilingus and individual responses to them are almost endless. As always, communication, experimentation and practice are the best way to learn how to please a particular partner.
The clitoris is the most sensitive part for almost all women, but may be too sensitive to stimulate directly at times, especially in early stages of arousal, and it is often best to begin with more gentle and less focused stimulation of the labia and the whole genital area. Ron Jeremy has advised in several films that a clockwise, counterclockwise, all over the place approach is more important than focusing solely on the clitoris. Others have found that tracing the alphabet, in the lack of a better idea, seems to work quite well.
Tongue tip, blade or underside can be used, as can the nose, lips and teeth (with caution). Movements can be slow or fast, regular or erratic, firm or soft as the moment requires.
The tongue can be inserted into the vagina, either stiffened or moving. Humming to cause vibration while performing cunnilingus is often considered to be especially arousing, with certain pitches, rhythms or tunes thought to be particularly effective by different people.
Cunnilingus is easily accompanied by the insertion of finger[s] or a sex toy into the vagina, which allows for the simultaneous stimulation of the g-spot, or into the anus, either of which many women find produce very intense sensations. Many other activities can accompany cunnilingus to enhance overall pleasure, of course, limited only by preference, physics, anatomy and multitasking ability.
A popular slang term for cunnilingus is "eating out," which is a misnomer because nothing is "consumed," except perhaps bodily fluids if protection is not used. Cunnilingus can also be referred as a "poon-job," a slang term and a cunnilingus variant of "blow-job", where "poon" is short for punani. Other terms include "eating pussy," and "Dining at the Y".
