In response to a previous column, I received the following letter, which I would like to share with my readers.

Question: My question is very personal, but I read your blog and found it interesting. My husband, believe it or not, says he has to be in the mood for oral sex especially when I want to do it to him. Is this odd? Do you think I am doing something wrong? I want to please him, and I personally enjoy it. Any advice you can give I would appreciate. ...Allison

Answer: You ask a very interesting question: Does a man (in this case, your husband) have to be in the mood to receive oral sex?

The simple answer to this is: No. Since receiving oral sex requires almost no effort on the part of the recipient, and the outcome is decidedly pleasant and lacks any performance anxiety, there are very few reasons a man would NOT want to be pleasured this way. In fact, most men complain about not receiving this kind of attention enough. And frankly, I've never heard complaints about receiving too MUCH oral sex.

I can think of several reasons, however, that a man might want to limit the frequency of oral sex: 1) He struggles with the perception that this kind of activity is demeaning, and despite his enjoyment of it, tries to limit the number of times he SUBJECTS you to it; 2) He has some religious objection to this form of sexual activity; 3) He had some negative experience with oral sex in the past, the memories of which are sometimes triggered by your oral attention; 4)He is worried about orgasming too soon this way, and thus eliminating (at least for 20 or 30 minutes) the possibility of having "regular" sex; 5) He feels as if you are using oral sex as a way to gain his attention when he is trying to focus on other important things...in other words, you're making oral sex a "pleasant annoyance;" 6) He is having sex with someone else, or has recently masturbated, and doesn't want you to have that close contact with his penis and discover either of these things; 7) Your oral sex technique is somewhat lacking and he doesn't know how to tell you – so he endures your ministrations as infrequently as possible.

Since I can't possibly know which one of these things is behind his attitude, I can only make limited suggestions. They are as follows: 1) If you have no other reason to believe he is cheating on you, forget about reason #6 – although if he is like most men, he probably is still masturbating on occasion, which, by the way, is no reflection on his interest in you or your ability to satisfy him. 2) If you are unaware of any traumatic sexual occurrence in his past, or you know him to be devoid of any significant religious objections, you can discount those as possible reasons for his attitude, as well. 3) Many women are not that skilled in their oral technique, though they are unaware of this, because guys hardly ever bring this up. If this is his issue, I am certain he is reluctant to tell you and possibly hurt your feelings. There is an easy solution to this problem, however: Next time you start to mouth him, tell him it would really excite you if he described in explicit detail just what he'd like you to do. Then follow his direction to a "T." He will have the opportunity to teach you exactly what he enjoys (and what he doesn't like), in a positive environment, free of the worry that he'll hurt or insult you. And you'll be able to replicate your actions every time you dive below his belt. And maybe he'll even get the idea to do the same with you...and have you instruct him on how YOU want to be pleasured, next time he applies his tongue to your tropical region. That's what you truly call a "win-win" situation!

If you have any questions about men, relationships, dating or a related topic, please feel free to email them to me at: david@EveryManSeesYouNaked.com. I will try to answer as many as I possibly can here in my column.

    • Interesting letter.....I can’t imagine a man wanting to put the brakes on oral sex. I can’t imagine a woman not wanting to receive it, either. Well, unless the guy is like a bulldog and doesn’t know what he’s doing. Same can be said for the man not wanting it.

      Strange.....but my question is....has he been OK with it in the past and this is something new????

    • I have to say I disagree with David.  My husband doesn’t really care for oral sex and never has.  He is in his 40’s and we just married a year ago, next Monday.  When I asked him why, he just said it never really turned him on.  I do know my husband is very giving and loves to please me in all ways.  He is a very giving man and not selfish at all, in less it comes to his meat.  He loves meat and potatoes.  LOL  I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not. Just a little insight, not all men are alike and if everything else is great in the relationship, I wouldn’t worry about that one thing.
