Cunnilingus is when a man or another woman has oral sex with a woman. He licks her sex organs with his lips and tongue. The word comes from a Latin word for the vulva (cunnus) and from the Latin word for tongue (lingua).

The clitoris is the main part of the woman's sex organs that brings the most feeling. Often, a woman reach an orgasm during cunnilingus.[1]

In the past, some thought cunnilingus to be taboo (bad).[2] People in some countries still think of it as taboo. However, many people in western and other cultures have oral sex.[1]
