A fresco in Pompeii, showing a cunnilingus. The fresco dates to about 79 AD

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 part of the woman's sex organs that has the most feeling. Sometimes, a woman may have 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]
