Going down', 'rimming' and 'blow jobs' are some of the many ways of describing oral sex. Oral sex means using your mouth or tongue to lick, suck or stimulate your partner’s genitals or anus.
Many people enjoy oral sex, but it is a personal thing and not everybody likes it or chooses to do it. There are different ways to give or receive oral sex. You may decide not to have oral sex at all, or you may enjoy trying it out with your partner to find out what gives you both pleasure.
It is important to talk to your partner about oral sex so you can understand what they like and don’t like. Every person is different, so it can take a while to work out what makes someone feel good. The best thing to do is to keep communicating with your partner. Ask them to tell you what feels nice and let them know when you are enjoying something.
If you’re happy and comfortable with someone, oral sex can be a great way to get physically closer and learn what turns each other on. If you find you aren’t enjoying something, it’s your right to stop at any time you want, and the same is true for your partner.
