Oral Taboo

There’s something about rising out of the water that has a lot to do with our sexuality…It is vast, like a sea. –Joseph Campbell

Saying the words oral and sex in the same sentence will turn heads at almost any health or natural conference I attend. Even with a blush, most people will tune in and want to know more. Providing ideas and products that encourage them to have the conversation or better still, encourage them to have the experience at home, is a welcome conversation.

Oral sex is at once one of the most desirable sexual experiences and the one that still carries enough discomfort to call it taboo in some circles. There was a time when you could get arrested for it. Still in the vast sea of sexuality, developing a healthy connection and building skill to oral ways of loving have a power and passion unique in the world. Oral sex might be the most personal and raw act of intimacy that two people can give each other.

Despite the high level of intimacy and sensuality of oral sex, one of the most commonly asked questions is “How do you have good oral sex” or “How to do I have oral sex and not gag?”

I think any posture and technique in the western world (among monotheists...) is a taboo anyway.

Wow, so much opinionated misinformation in this article to comment on but only time for a few points... It can makes a HUGE difference for a mans pleasure, physically and emotionally, when his partner swallows and can be insulting when they don't... There are many factors for the taste or odor of male and female sexual fluids other than what one eats... By the authors logic, a fruitarian would have the best taste, there are many vegetarians who eat crap foods and drink coffee/alcohols. From reading these comments, I can see there is a glaring generational gap from todays youth versus older people, that is as sad as is comical. Or maybe many of these care2 readers are coming from a geriatric religious community center with adult content filtered internet access.
