Become a master at the 69 position! Try these tried-and-true tips to having the best head-to-toe action ever.

The Downs

  • How do I put this delicately? If ever there was a time you wished you hadn't rushed out the door without showering, this is it. It can be slightly alarming to remember this just as you're lowering yourself right next to his nose.
  • Some men consider a 69er so erotic, they ejaculate too quickly — a literal two licks in. This is why it's advisable for him to start working on you long before you start on him.

  • Giving and receiving pleasure simultaneously is fabulous, but it has a massive downside: You need to pay attention — and that means you can't lose yourself in the moment. This, sadly for us, is more of a problem for women than for men. Orgasm for men is easy: Simply having a mouth hovering near his penis can sometimes be enough to send him over the edge. Women, complicated creatures that we are, usually require a specific, constant, don't-alter-anything-just-keep-doing-it-or-I'll-kill-you type of stimulation to climax. And if he's in the throes of orgasm or approaching it, he's unlikely to be paying careful attention to the critical timing you require.
  • If he does manage to keep going and you're the one transported into orgasmic bliss, it's rather easy to get a little carried away and forget your mouth is wrapped around some very vulnerable flesh. Some women involuntarily clench their jaw during orgasm. (Never seen a grown man cry? Here's your chance.)
  • If you assume the traditional position (meaning you're on top of him), you're actually the wrong way around for his tongue to work on the most sensitive part of the clitoral area. So, depending on how long, wide and dexterous his tongue is, this can mean his stimulation won't feel as good for you as regular oral sex.
