Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The latest of seven handbooks on oral sex published since 2002, these two offer a new twist. Michaels, a speech therapist, prescribes numerous and challenging mouth exercises for the tongue-fu impaired to prevent stiff muscles and increase flexibility, strength, and reach. This matched set covers mental and physical preparation, kissing, safe sex, anatomy, breathing, body positions, basic and advanced techniques, and-of course-the mouth exercises and a "fitness test." The text is friendly, funny, and illustrated with line drawings, although more would have made the exercises easier to follow. Michaels carefully avoids most gender pronouns, so the books manage to address multiple genders. However, all the illustrations are heterosexual. The essential guides on this subject are The Ultimate Guide to Cunnilingus and The Ultimate Guide to Fellatio (both by Violet Blue), gay- and heterosexual-friendly books with broader and more varied coverage of techniques and safety. Michaels's books are recommended for sexuality collections in larger public and academic libraries.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

You Have to Walk Before You Can (Unzip His) Fly:
Preparing Yourself to Find (and Swing) Your Partner of Choice

If sex is such a natural phenomenon, how come there are so many books on how to?

—Bette Midler

IT WOULD BE a cause for celebration if we were born with the natural and intuitive set of sexual skills that we all pretend we have. Without stating it outright, our culture—via our parents, the media, and our peers—implies that sex and sexual skills should come naturally, with all but the most advanced techniques being instinctive. You'd never expect someone to hit a perfect tennis serve without lessons and practice, or to play a beautiful sonata on an instrument they've only touched a couple of times. Yet somehow, most of us come to maturity with the expectation that sexual skills will magically develop in the presence of our naked lover, that this lover will likewise experience a spontaneous onset of spectacular proficiency, and that it will all unfurl as smoothly as a movie montage.

Where do real-life Don Juans get their savoir faire? There's only one way: practice, practice, practice. Some people try to pick up tips from their friends, but while you may have an friend or two with information to spare, the likelihood is that you're dealing with what literary criticism calls an "unreliable narrator." (I personally stopped trusting the sexual knowledge of my peers when they asked me if my "cherry" had been "popped," but could not specify what this "cherry" was, nor exactly where it was located.) Truth: real sex is awkward.

The fact is, if you expect great sex to come naturally, you're in big trouble, and your partner is in even bigger trouble. Giving great oral sex is dependent upon being truly comfortable with the act, in good times and in bad. Real sex with live people is awkward—it smells, it squeaks, it gets stuck on some things and rams too quickly into others. People get injured physically (especially in the shower) and emotionally (especially in affairs), and on the whole, doing it probably causes about as many problems as pleasures. This doesn't mean that you should stop—in fact, most of us should be having more sex rather than less.* But it does indicate that we have a lot of false expectations surrounding sex, and these expectations take a lot of the fun out of sex without us even knowing it.

ACCEPTING THESE REALITIES WILL MAKE YOU A BETTER LOVER

Sexual Skill Doesn't Come Naturally
Sure, the impulse to have sex is natural, and the heat of passion is sure to lend a little on-the-spot inspiration, but sexual skill must be learned and practiced like anything else.

Tell Him to Wash Behind His Balls
Genitals have a naturally pungent odor and taste. Some people love it, others don't. But you're in denial if you're surprised by it. If this is a concern for you, just take a bath or shower with your partner, instead of trying to skirt oral sex, or pretending to be comfortable going down when you're not. If you forge ahead anyway, your partner will sense your repressed discomfort, and the effort to conceal your true feelings will take the zest out of your performance.


A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Orgasm

Whether it's that funny slurping noise, a penis that veers to the right like it's catching a curveball, or a pubic hair in your eye, unexpected things are bound to happen during sex. Who can say what it will be? One woman I know started laughing while her guy was coming in her mouth, and it ended up dribbling out of her nose. Things like this are a natural part of an active sex life, so you might as well expect them and make sure to bring your sense of humor with you to the bedroom. Taking sex too seriously is a sure passion-killer.

Genitals Look Funny
Believe it or not, the overall quality of oral sex is still being compromised by people's shame and fear of genitalia. The people giving oral sex are afraid to stare too much, because they don't want to make their partner feel uncomfortable, while their partner can barely even relax and enjoy themselves because they're so freaked out by someone sniffing around down there. Shocking as it is, this is occurring in the twenty-first century, and it's compromising the quality of oral sex. To overcome any vestiges of genital-fear, take a moment with your partner to really look at his genitals. Tell him why you want to do it, and make sure he feels comfortable with it first. Then look—really look—at all the different parts, and acknowledge that these are what you have to work with. An anatomically complete understanding of your partner's genitals will assure your subconscious that there is nothing "bad" or "dirty" or "scary" lurking in there anywhere.

"That was great. Really, it was . . ."
Most likely, no one's told you the truth about your sexual skills. It's a rare lover who openly communicates what they do or don't like, because they're trying to be nice. But withholding feedback is extremely counterproductive with regards to sex. The way people communicate about sex isn't even worthy of the term "miscommunication," because not only does withholding feedback send the wrong information (that you like something you don't, or dislike something you do), it actively obstructs future communication about sex. We're lucky consultants can't be called into the bedroom, because most people would be fired. The result? Very few men and women have been given enough feedback to develop a repertoire that works. And it's a damned shame. Since they haven't built up the strength and precision of their lips and tongue through a history of feedback and refinement, they develop a repertoire based on second-rate skills and subject every poor date they meet to it. As a loving pet owner thinks their cat or dog is absolutely unique among the breed, everyone—and I mean everyone—thinks they have great sexual skills. Meanwhile, most people report more than a few instances of less-than-satisfying sex every year. You do the math.

You don't have to pass out a comments and suggestions card afterward, but you do need to elicit your partner's feedback. A whispered "do you like that?" during oral sex will produce more honest feedback than a "was that good for you?" when the deed has already been done.

It's Not Just About the Orgasm
You don't have to make your partner come to have great oral sex. Great oral lovers are not orgasm-making machines, and if you treat oral sex this way you're not going to enjoy it--and neither will your partner. Aside from straining yourself, your orgasm fixation will actually distract you from your lover's subtle signs and signals. You don't have to frantically chase orgasms. The orgasm will come to you. Straining and stressing about how long it's taking your partner to come wards off a real orgasm like a snake scares a mare, so it's better to just let go of this expectation and enjoy yourself. Experiment and play—the light touch—will inevitably create more pleasure for your partner than strain or stress.

People who perform poorly at oral sex are usually hung up on one or all of these basic issues. But there's another related set of concerns that are a little more serious, and must be addressed for you to get the most out of giving—and receiving—oral sex. As much as oral sex is a matter of skill, it is also an issue rife with hang-ups and inhibitions for many people. These must be eradicated to unleash your greatest oral sex potential.

When Your Mind Spoils Your Head:
What Wrecks Oral Sex

NO MATTER HOW much you might try to convince yourself that you are a sexual cavalier and not a vulnerable human being, sex is an intimate act. It almost always brings up somebody's emotions. Oral sex, in some ways, is even more intimate. A Chinese proverb says, "If you save a person's life, they're yours forever." That's fine and well, but hair-pulling, moan-making, nail-sinking oral sex breeds its own strain of attachment, and it can be pretty fierce.

Partially because of the intense feelings of vulnerability, some people have a very hard time opening themselves up to receiving oral sex. At the thought of someone else fully exploring their genitals and witnessing their states of uncontrolled ecstasy, some people begin to drool, while others snap closed like a clam. (Personally, I drool.) Control issues (After all, what might that other person do down there? Will they try to stick something weird in my [insert most feared orifice here] or do something else that I'm not prepared for?), self-doubt (Do I smell down there? What if I have to fart? What if I didn't wipe well the last time I . . . you know . . . ?), and a negative body-image (Are they noticing my love handles/cellulite/ass hairs/whatever aspect of my body I tend to despair over?), as well as a plethora of other issues can take the fun out of oral sex faster than you can say the word "orgasm." And that's just on the receiving end!

On the giving end, performance anxiety and fear of being judged are chief among the pleasure-killers. "What if they don't like what I'm doing?" "What if I get tired and need to stop before they've had an orgasm?" "What if I can't bring them to orgasm?" And "What if they're just pretending to like it?" You may be surprised just how many people let thoughts like these crash their oral sex party.

While there is no magic potion to remove these inhibitions (other than drugs and alcohol, which are not long-term solutions!), there are some steps you can use before, during, and after your rendezvous that can help you to better relax and enjoy yourself. Being comfortable and happy makes almost anything you do better, and this goes double for oral sex. In order to devote yourself fully to giving and receiving pleasure, you need to be as deep in the pleasure groove as you can get.

GETTING READY TO RUMBLE:
A DATING GUIDE FOR FABULOUS ORAL LOVE

For those of you who are perfectly comfortable with your body, have no trouble relaxing and getting down to business, and are 100 percent ready for action, skip this bit and go straight to chapter 3. For those of you who have been single for a while, tend to fumble with sexual tension, or simply feel that you could be better at relaxing and enjoying the ride, here's some information how to prepare your entire being for oral sex.

Before going out with a sexual (or soon-to-be) partner, most people spend time squinting in the mirror and picking out their most flattering clothes. Paying a little extra attention to your appearance and hygiene before a date is a natural inclination—and should be de rigueur if you're hoping for future dates—but the buck rarely stops here. All over the country, we go tearing through our closets looking for the "right" outfit, wrestling into one sweater just to run to the mirror and frown. "You're fat," the mirror says back to us, "and I'm not granting you any wishes." A new pimple or wrinkle just before a date has furrowed countless brows. "This big, ugly pimple next to my mouth looks awful—they'll probably think I have herpes! Maybe I should just cancel." These thoughts and feelings aren't restricted to ephemera—our more substantial physical "flaws" provoke even more nerve-racking thoughts. "My pubic hair is turning silver," an older friend confided in me, "and I don't know what's more painful: their facial expression when my underwear comes off, or plucking the damned things."

Fretting seems harmless, but how are you going to get comfortable and enjoy what your body can do if you've spent time before your date chastising it? The innocuous appearance of predate fretting is only skin-deep: it has very real consequences for sex and physical pleasure.

Shower Power
Being clean and sweet-smelling is a considerate gesture that says to your partner, "I want you to enjoy contact with my body," and it can boost your self-confidence. However, criticizing your body on any level will impede your oral sex performance, because how you feel about your own body will be played out in how you react to your lover's. It can also distract you from your partner's subtle signals and delay your own orgasms. Is being zitless and well-dressed worth that much? Is anything? Of course you should look nice for your date—but obsessive thoughts have a momentum of their own, and cannot be cast off as easily as clothing.

Consider limiting your preening time to around fifteen minutes—just enough time to cover the basics, not enough to nitpick. Use the rest of the time to prepare yourself psychologically to have fun and relax.

The Two Big Basics
These are very simple ideas, but disregarded by one and all. First, wear comfortable clothes. Not quite the jeans with holes and your favorite tattered sweater, but make it a rule to avoid tight or restricting clothes, and clothes that are out of character for you. If you don't look like yourself, you won't act like yourself. (Also, it's not a bad idea to leave the stilettos and fancy silks for a time when you may need the kinkiness.)

Second, use the time before your date to relax and unwind. If you're leaving work, take a walk around the block just to absorb the atmosphere of the neighborhood, or treat yourself to something that will loosen you up—maybe it's listening to music, getting a manicure, or going in a pet store and watching puppies tussle. Whatever it is, it needs to relax you. For more serious stress cases, it may take a ten-minute massage or a short yoga workout. No matter what your stress level is, though, there's one cure-all: breathing. The breathing exercises outlined in chapter 8 are among the best stress antidotes around. They cost nothing, take little time, and relax you utterly. But if you want to be giving off your most sexual vibes, there are some specific activities that will send sparks flying on contact, which will be discussed in chapter 10.

If you don't have time to relax and unwind before a date, simply pop into the bathroom and take a look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like yourself? If you don't get a resounding "Hell yeah, I'm awesome!" keep loking at yourself and just say out loud: "I like me." Say it until you start to mean it, and then you can go rock the world. Felling good about yourself makes everything you do better.

    Great book, good tips

    This book is really good. There are alot of tips and techinques to use. She lists a whole lot of different ways to kiss, and different ways to give oral sex. Both men and woman can read the book, which I liked, cause my husband would read a section and say 'oh lets try that'. The one thing I didn't like the book was all of these exercises she listed in the book, that you should do to get your tongue into shape. Besides that, it was a good book. Anyone who wants to get better at oral sex should read this book.

    Good Information

    I bought this book for simple, straightforward advice on the best way to perform oral sex. The book gave me all the information that I wanted in well illustrated, simple to follow, easy to understand format. If you are VERY experienced, this book probably won't give you much useful information, but if you are like me little to moderately experienced, you can find some good information here.

    I honestly didn't know books like this existed!

    I've gotta admit, I'm a man and there were things that she taught me about my own anatomy. This book is VERY informative, it not only instructs you on fellatio techniques, but also on exercises that you can do to strengthen the muscles in your mouth, lips and tongue that will help you to increase your stamina (a stronger mouth won't get tired so easily) and increase the sensations you give your partner. I had never realized that the strength of the muscles in your mouth, lips and tongue had a direct effect on your ability to fellate effectively. There as SO many new things I want to do (and to have done to me as well). I ordered this book in the mail and I was a bit apprehensive about it, but the way it was packaged there was no way someone could have seen what the book was unless they intentionally ripped open the box it was in.

    great guide for getting over some oral sex hurdles

    This book talks about getting over "ick" factors (mental hurdles) as well as physical ones (exercises for the neck, mouth, jaw, and tounge and how to keep breathing). I highly recommend this even for people who think they might know it all but have some troubles with cramping of the mouth or jaw (like I used to haha).

    Disappointment

    this book was terrible... either that or I am very talented. There were few to no new ideas. This was one step better than blow jane blow. see jane blow. I suggest you not waste your money and use oral.. to ask your partner what he likes.
