“To be honest, it feels euphoric.”
I enjoy going down on women. It makes me feel good to know that the person I'm with is (hopefully) really enjoying herself.
Apparently, that's a sentiment most dudes share, according to Jane Greer, Ph.D., a New York-based relationship expert and author of What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship. "It gives them a sense of accomplishment," says Greer.
Ever wonder (or worry) what other feels guys have when they take a trip down south? I asked several men for their input:
"I just think it's super hot. It's really satisfying for me to do something with my tongue and have her react positively with a moan or something. It makes me feel like I'm doing something for her that she can't do for herself—whether that's the case or not." —Will D.
"I always feel like I'm doing my part when I go down on my girlfriend because she says she's never had an orgasm from penetrative sex alone. It's my only shot to get her off, and it feels great when she comes. It's also nice for me because she wants to have sex more often if I can get her off " —Henry G.
Here are a few fun facts about that big O:
"To be honest, it feels euphoric. I love the way it tastes, and I love the way it smells. There's just something about it that really arouses me." —Collin A.
"The first time you go down on someone new, it feels like I'm on a mission to get the girl to feel amazing. I'm always trying to figure out what she likes." —Dustin S.
"It makes me feel really close to the woman I'm giving oral to. You have to feel comfortable with someone to let them lick your genitals, right?" —Carlos S.
"It feels like Christmas Eve because you're in the middle of this thing you enjoy doing, and you're happy you're doing it, but you also know that soon you'll be doing something even better—as in sex." —Matthew L.
"It feels amazing, it tastes amazing, and the reactions make me feel super-gratified and accomplished. It's special to be able to do something for a woman she can't do to herself. I think this is why guys like getting blow jobs better than handjobs." —Evan H.
"Sometimes, it feels a little ticklish on my nose. It made me sneeze once. That was an awkward encounter." —Micah A.
