Perfecting the art of oral sex on a woman is frustrating, yes. But as Rhianna tells us, it’s totally worth it.
Recently my ex-boyfriend wrote an article entitled “Why I don’t go down on girls”.
Naturally my heart sank, a common experience for anyone who was once in a relationship with a writer from the Tab.After reading the first few paragraphs, the confusion begun.
He claimed that after finally finding someone, he “never went down on her“. This girl is me.
Following our relationship, he falls into a state of anxiety – “What if I never went down on a girl? What would happen to me if I didn’t become an outstanding giver of head?”
The story ends with his going down for the first (and last) time, traumatised as she “ejaculated all over my face“.
One point to get out the way: the facts are simply not true. I can safely confirm that he went down on me several times during our relationship. In fact, he would ask to go down and I would often politely decline.
Why did I say no? Because, to be honest, it just didn’t feel that good.
At first I thought that it was my fault. When I was 14, I read The Time Traveller’s Wife which features a distinctly graphic and beautiful scene describing Clare receiving oral sex for the first time.
It sounded overwhelmingly good; I waited for a long time and when the moment finally happened, I felt less pleasured and more awkward. It’s taken many conversations with friends to realise that this is a common experience.
It isn’t our fault. Going down on a woman is difficult.
It is an art, my friends. I highly doubt that you can make a girl come using your tongue the first time you try it. I’ve seen porn and trust me, it really isn’t as easy as they make it look to make a girl “arch and shiver“.
This was actually a tension in our relationship. I didn’t enjoy him licking me out and he couldn’t understand why. The problem was that I felt too aware of myself and my surroundings. I felt too aware of the head at my hips.
