So this is mortifying but here goes....
Few months in to a great relationship, sex is good, i give him oral but he has never gone down there ... its something that i really enjoy receiving - just the thought is a massive turn on. Obviously i don't want him to do anything hes not comfy with but it would be nice to try. How on earth do i ask him? Im not very confident in the bedroom due to prev relationship.
All help/tips/thoughts welcome!

Aarrghh that sounds mortifying. I hate asking for sex things... Really scary! I'd probably go with giving him a blow job and if he says it is nice I'd say "want to return the favour?" That is probably as specific as I could be!

Does he suck and lick your boobs? Why not introduce a squirty aerosol of cream into your bedroom? You could put some on him and lick it off, and then...

Please forgive me for being blunt: you say that you are a few months into a great relationship, but I am wondering just how great it really is if you do not feel able to tell this chap in words of one syllable what you require him to do.

In my experience, the better the communication, the better the relationship. Therefore, if you are going to remain in this relationship something needs to change. You ought to feel relaxed enough to just come out and say that you love oral sex and that he needs to get on with the job. Take the bull by the horns and tell him straight.

Good luck.

Tell him you’d really enjoy it and ask him how he feels about giving it. In my experience, some men love it and some men hate it, and if he hasn’t initiated this far I fear he may be in the latter camp?

I must say it would have been discussed before now if this had been me, do you sext can you get a vibe off him that way? It is a vital part of sex for me and the fact he hasn't ventured down there yet is concerning.

Hi all i just dont know how to have that conversation... im also worried he might hate it as not been there already! Im not good generally in asking for needs to be met... this is just very embarressing for me

It's true that if he liked giving oral he might have offered. If he loved it he would gone for it anyway without asking. Honestly, if it's important to you you've got to have the conversation. He might think you don't like it or don't care about it, especially as some time has passed.

You're just going to have to ask I think.

Maybe he's nervous? And really wants to but doesn't know how to ask if you like it?

Justanamechange1 Thu 05-Sep-19 20:43:16

Thanks all I'm just gonna have to ask aren't i?! How??? What on earth do i say?

Next time his fingers are doing their thing just say a tongue is even better.

Suggest a 69er?

If he hates it and you really love it it's worth knowing that while the relationship is young.

But the other poster is right. The way to approach this is via suggesting 69.

He doesn't like it . If he did you"d know by now . At the same time try not giving him oral . See if that sparks a conversation.

Like others have said, suggest a 69

"suck your boobs"
That phrase has given me a really funny mental image 😂

As a bloke, I continue to be utterly amazed at how coy women are, when they want something.

If you want him to go down on you, just please - for the love of God - just ask for it. If he doesn't do it quite the way you want him to do it, help him by telling him: "Ooh, babes, please do x!"

When my wife asked me to go behind her, the first time we had sex, I was utterly thrilled that I had finally found a woman whom I would not have to solve like some kind of cryptic puzzle.

We men are simple creatures and require directness!

@lovesmarties The problem is that us women can be coy creatures after being conditioned (maybe not as much today) to be good girls lol

However, it is easier once you really know and are comfortable with each other, but then it begs the question for him to ask...why didn't you ask before !

I had a few things on the naughtier side that I didn't confess to wanting for a while. However, didn't object to oral.....he was always brilliant at that from the first time and continues to be!

Who else keeps popping back to see if it's happened? grin

Happyhusband Sat 07-Sep-19 15:12:15

@MaryPopppins yup I'm lurking to see if the man in the boat has been given a reason to float.

Stop doing it for him, when he asks simply tell him it is his turn now. Think you will get your answer.

Londongirl07 Fri 13-Sep-19 00:09:31

If he ever says he’s hungry say do you wanna eat what my mum made? And if he says what’s that point at your vagina 😂😂😂. You’ll know by his reaction

MisterT373 Fri 13-Sep-19 08:57:16

Never heard that one but love it!!!

zarek Sat 14-Sep-19 19:40:22

Just say, 'I would really like it if you went down on me' and see what he says. Of course like all things sexual this must be consensual but bearing in mind you are doing it for him and for women its probably even more important then I think it is worth a discussion.
