Sex Toys for Men, Women and Couples

Question

I know that the technical term for pleasing a man by performing oral sex is called "fellatio." What is it called technically when you please a woman by performing oral sex?


Answer

The term for performing oral sex on a woman would be cunnilingus. It's origin is from the Latin lingere, to lick, and cunnus, vagina. Actually, cunnus means "sheath," but you can see how that might have come to mean "vagina."
