If you’re looking to improve your oral presentation (and no, we don’t mean the kind that's accompanied by a PowerPoint) then this is the article for you.

We’ve got three playful positions and four insightful tips to elevate your oral sex, no matter what body parts you and your partner possess.

1. Grind It

It can be tempting as the receiver to just lie back and bliss out – and there's nothing wrong with that in itself.

But we tend to forget that a bit of grind can take oral sex from fun to phenomenal.

As the receiving partner, you can (gently!) grab your partner's head and either grind against their mouth, or thrust a little deeper.

2. What a Baller

This position is perfect for receiving cunnilingus, fellatio or rimming.

As the receiving partner, lie on your back with your knees bent up to your chest – wrap your arms around your knees if it's comfortable to do so.

Your partner will be able to easily access either sweet spot, no matter your gender!

3. Add a Toy 

We'd all like to give our partners out-of-this-world oral all the time, but we're only human right?

Our tongues get tired, our gag reflex kicks in when we least expect it, and then there's that's thing called breathing we kind of have to do once in a while! Don't sweat it though, because that's what sex toys are for!

If your partner is so inclined, you can reach for an anal toy like some beads or a butt plug and pleasure their booty while your mouth gets down to business.

Alternatively, you could use a toy like the Womanizer Classic Clitoral Stimulator to mimic the sensation of oral sex while you plant your lips on other erogenous zones.

4. Don't Curb Your Enthusiasm

It may sound like we are stating the obvious, but oral sex is an extremely intimate act.

It is not uncommon for people to feel self-conscious about receiving oral and that's totally understandable. Your genitals are going to be right at someone's eye level – that's a big deal if you already feel insecure.

If you are the giver, performing with some gusto can serve to reassure your partner. Get messy, be sure to smile and make eye contact once in a while – show your partner that turning them on gets you off!

5. Side By Side

We love this position, because it means both partners get great head at the same time! It's also great if the receiving partner finds it difficult to spread their legs open wide enough to give their partner an access-all-areas pass (so to speak!).

Both partners lie on their side, one on their left side and the other on their right side. By angling your leg that's closest to the ceiling, both of you should be able to simultaneously give and receive amazing oral sex.

6. Reach for the Lube

Lube isn't just for penetrative play, it's here to help us enjoy oral sex as well! There's a vast range of lubes on the market that are designed to give the receiver sweet sensations and the giver a flavour boost.

Take the a mint flavoured lube as a prime example, the giver gets to savour that minty fresh feeling, while the menthol extract treats the receiver to delicious tingly sensations.

7. Take a Seat 

Having the receiving partner sit on the edge of the bed or in a chair is a great way to change up your usual routine – but it's also a great way to increase the intensity of your oral!

In this position, the giving partner is able to grab onto the hips of the receiver and use that resistance to deliver deep oral pleasure to their loved one.

These are our top 7 oral sex moves, designed to vamp up your usual routine. But don't take our word for it, bring them into the bedroom and experience the benefits first-hand!
