Cunnilingus: (n) the act of orally stimulating the female genitals
I never try to fix my light switch when there’s an electrician in the room.
I know this sounds like an obvious statement, but we know there are individuals who are so sure of their own ability that they would go ahead and fix the light switch with an electrician nearby.
Perhaps they would consider it initiative.
Maybe they would insist it was a showcase of their self-confidence.
But as for me, I think it’s arrogant, shortsighted, and can result in a light switch that does not work.
For thousands of years, we have viewed human sexuality through the peep hole of the male penis.
Movies, songs, books, conversation—all have insisted that if a woman can be dominated by an erection and adequately tosseled through intercourse, she will be delighted—and also submissive.
The fact that nothing could be further from the truth does not seem to hinder the proliferation of this idea. It has been my finding that the best person to talk to about human sexuality is a woman. Just as I would trust an electrician with my lighting concerns—because he knows the inner workings of the wiring much better than me—I likewise would listen to a lady explain how her wiring works.
If a woman is not sexually engaged and passionately involved, then sexual intercourse can quickly become boring, perfunctory, and appear to be a male-controlled activity, only bringing ultimate satisfaction to the man-person.
We live in a society that still giggles, sweats and becomes extraordinarily nervous when the word cunnilingus is said aloud.
Although a woman would probably tell you that stimulating her genitalia through making direct physical contact with the clitoris with fingers or tongues is an extremely strong provider of an orgasm, men still insist that they do it with their penis, which has proven to be a much clumsier and ineffective apparatus.
A side note:
I once sat in a workshop in which a young man was giving a report on speaking in tongues—and he unfortunately had confused the word cunnilingus with the word glossolalia. Half the audience was unaware, and the other half of us did not know whether to burst out laughing or sit very still—to protect the young man from the memory of a life-long trauma.
Yet, even when I’m involved in glossolalia, I always use cunnilingus if I want to satisfy my lover.
