Cunnilingus is the act of a man or another woman performing oral sex using the mouth, lips, teeth, and tongue to stimulate the female sex organs. The clitoris is the most sensitive part of the female genitalia. The term comes from a Latin word for the vulva (cunnus) and from the Latin word for tongue (lingua). Some women achieve orgasm from clitoral stimulation as part of cunnilingus. It has been considered taboo (not appropriate) in many cultures. In modern Western culture oral sex is widely practised.
