Clever Cunnilingus Tips: How To Go Down On A Partner Who Has A Vulva

Clever Cunnilingus Tips: How To Go Down On A Partner Who Has A Vulva

Oral sex. Cunnilingus. Eating out. Giving head.

Whatever you call it, going down on a person with a vulva is an amazing experience for everyone involved—if you do it right. (So for the love of vulvas, please stop drawing the ABC’s with your tongue.)

Good oral sex can make you feel like you have superpowers, whether you’re the giving or receiving partner. Going down on a woman (or person with a vulva) requires finesse. It requires confidence. Most of all, it requires you to understand what you’re doing and why.

Instead of turning oral sex into a spelling bee or guessing game, take a look at our tips for both giving and recieving oral sex, as well as some quotes from both oral sex givers and receivers.

We’re not saying they’re totally fail-proof oral sex tips, but they are fun and sexy, with the potential to produce mind-blowing orgasms!

Mutual Masturbation Versus Solo Play

Mutual Masturbation Versus Solo Play

The first rule of Masturbation Club is how you masturbate is up to you. Your body, your choice. 

And it’s true that masturbation looks very different for all of us; some of us may be pillow-humpers, some of us may enjoy penetrative sex toys, and some of us may just enjoy some spit and our own hands. 

The second rule, though, is masturbation can be fun when it’s mutual!

Before you ask, yes, mutual masturbation is different than having sex with a partner—even though it is just as fun! 

Don’t let anxiety kill your sex drive! 5 tips to try today

Woman with closed eyes looking stressed - don’t let anxiety kill your sex drive! 5 tips to try today

Racing heart, shallow breathing, tensed muscles, and goosebumps. Sounds pretty sexy, right? Not always.

Though they share these physical experiences, anxiety and sex are not happy bedfellows. “Anxiety is a major contributor to diminishing frequency of sex and diminishing capacity for enjoyment of sex,” says Colorado-based certified sex therapist Indigo Stray Conger.

Let’s explore some of the more common ways anxiety can impact your sex life (and some tips to find let go and enjoy sex again!).

Maintaining Intimacy Through Grief

Lioness sex guides - Memorial Day Flags

Outside of the military community, Memorial Day is generally pretty sexy. Bikinis, beer and barbecues; steaks, sunscreen, and swimming pools. It’s a day many civilians look forward to.

Inside the military community, however, things can look and feel a bit different. For a military spouse, it’s often a day where we anticipate our service member needing more love than they give. It’s a day when we know they’re going to be thinking of all the people they’ve loved and lost - people they’ve endured everything with, from boot camp to wars. 

This begs the question; how do you maintain intimacy with something like death and loss hanging heavy in the air? The answer is so simple, it may surprise you!

Tips & tricks for how to talk to your partner about your sexual fantasies and theirs

In the world of sex, fetishes and fantasies are often viewed as taboo. While you can lean toward science and studies to tell you that they’re not actually that uncommon, chances are you’ve got the best possible person to share your sexual fantasies with; your partner.

Tips & Tricks for Better Blow Jobs

Dos & don’ts for better blow jobs
In a recent article listing blow job dos and don’ts, I said there’s no step-by-step recipe to the perfect blow job and I stand by my words.

As a sex writer who spends a good portion of my time writing guides and advice pieces for better sex, I’m often conflicted because there’s never just one good way to do anything.

There are ways. Plural.

Blow jobs are no different; they can be quick and dirty, a surprise, warm-up, or foreplay. But, if you want to take it up a notch and give the crème de la crème of blow jobs—no pun intended—I recommend the following tips:

Blow Job Do's & Don’ts

How to give a good blow job

How to Give a Better Blow Job

If I could give you a step-by-step recipe to the perfect blowjob, I would, but unfortunately, there’s no such thing. Since preferences and sensitivities vary from person to person, and sometimes even from one day to the next, there’s no ‘go-to-procedure’ for all. 

Fortunately, if you’re wondering how to give a good blow job, there are a few dos and don’t that separate the bad from the good, and the good from the outstanding.

What is Aftercare?

What is Aftercare?

What goes up must come down! Isaac Newton said it first, and it is true for much more than physical objects controlled by gravity.

When we reach any kind of elated and euphoric state, we're bound for an inevitable come-down, and—if we don't take care—potentially a huge crash. Most of us have at some point experienced feeling down or even depressed after a blissful or mind-blowing event, whether a party, a holiday, an exerting physical performance or something else that brings us high.

Do aphrodisiacs really work? 5 foods and suggestions

For as long as there's been sex, people have searched to find ways to make it better—more pleasurable, longer, with better orgasms, you name it. Enter aphrodisiacs. Derived from “Aphrodite” (the name of the Greek goddess of love), this term refers to substances that stimulate sexual desire. And while there isn't much scientific proof behind most aphrodisiacs, you still find couples ordering oysters on Valentine's Day in the hopes they'll get lucky.
