When a blow job leads to an overworked jaw: Tips for successful oral sex

Oral sex can be one of the most wonderful, exhilirating and fulfilling aspects of an intimate relationship, but it loses its charm quickly when one partner feels overworked. Corinne, in Madison, WI, found herself in just such a position. She writes:

“My mouth gets tired when going down on my guy. Is this abnormal? I want to make it work for him, but sometimes, it's just too much!”

Well, honestly, there is nothing abnormal about it at all. The muscles used during oral sex typically don’t get worked in the same way during every day life. A penis is much larger than the average bite of food, and it is being handled quite differently (no chewing, please!) So, it stands to reason that the oral giver's mouth, jaw and tongue may start to feel sore and tired after a while. This is especially true if the guy takes his sweet time getting to the big finish.

However, for partners who otherwise enjoy the activity, don’t let fatigue be a reason to avoid doing the deed altogether. When the jaw starts to feel the strain, simply give it a rest and alternate with using the hands, or even a toy, until the muscles have had a chance to rest and are ready to get back into the action.

While a guy may prefer continued oral stimulation, an understanding partner will be considerate of the need to rest for a bit. Why not ask him what else would feel good in the interim? And who knows... he may even return the favor. In fact, why not make it a point to alternate, so both parties can enjoy the process?
