    Cunnilingus is an oral sex act performed by a person on a female's genitalia (the clitoris, other parts of the vulva or thevagina).[1][2] The clitoris is the most sexually sensitive part of the human female genitalia, and its stimulation may result in female sexual arousal or orgasm.[3][4][5]

    Cunnilingus can be sexually arousing for participants, and may be performed by a sexual partner as foreplay to incite sexual arousal before other sexual activities (such as vaginal or anal intercourse),[1][6] or as an erotic and physically intimate act on its own.[1][2] Like most forms of sexual activity, oral sex can be a risk for contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs/STDs). However, the transmission risk for oral sex, especially HIV transmission, is significantly lower than for vaginal or anal sex.[7][8][9]

    Oral sex is often regarded as taboo,[1] but most countries do not have laws which ban the practice. Commonly, heterosexual couples do not regard cunnilingus as affecting the virginity of either partner, while lesbian couples commonly do regard it as a form of virginity loss.[10][11][12][13] People may also have negative feelings or sexual inhibitions about giving or receiving cunnilingus, or may refuse to engage in it.[1]

    Etymology and terminology

    The term cunnilingus is derived from the Neo-Latin words for the vulva (cunnus) and tongue (lingua).[14] Additionally, there are numerous slang terms for cunnilingus, includingdrinking from the furry cup,[15] carpet munching, and muff-diving. Several common slang terms used are giving liplip service, or tipping the velvet; the latter is an expression that novelist Sarah Waters argues that she "plucked from the relative obscurity of Victorian porn".[16] A person who performs cunnilingus may be referred to as a cunnilinguist.[17]

    Practice

    General practices

    General statistics indicate that 70-80% of women require direct clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm.[18][19][20][21] Shere Hite's research on human female sexuality reports that, for most women, orgasm is easily achieved by cunnilingus because of the direct clitoral stimulation (including stimulation to other external parts of the vulva that are physically related to the clitoris) that may be involved during the act.[22]

    A person who performs cunnilingus on someone might be referred to as the giving partner, and the other person as the receiving partner. During the activity, the receiving female's partner may use fingers to open the labia majora (genital lips) to enable the tongue to better stimulate the clitoris, or the female may separate the labia for her partner. Separating the legs wide would also usually open the vulva sufficiently for the partner to orally reach the clitoris.

    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, and so might 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 fingering the vagina or anus, or by the use of a sex toy; for penetration of the vagina, the aim may be to stimulate the G-spot area.[23]

    Women may consider personal hygiene before practicing oral sex important, as poor hygiene can lead to bad odors, accumulation of sweat and micro-residue (such as lint, urine or menstrual blood), which the giving partner may find unpleasant. Some women remove or trim pubic hair, which may enhance their oral sex experience.

    Autocunnilingus, which is cunnilingus performed by a female on herself, may be possible,[24] but an unusually high degree of flexibility is required, which may be possessed only by contortionists.
