How to Lick Your Own Clit
Since we published our popular guide for men on How to Suck Your Own Dick, we've received many requests to do a similar guide for women on how to perform autocunnilingus. You asked for it, so here it is.
Pics or It Didn't Happen
As with autofellatio, we want to stress that it's important to be cautious when attempting these postures. Take it slowly. Do not try it if you have any neck, spine, or back problems. Stop immediately if you feel pain.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Not every guy has a body type that will permit autofellatio, and the same is true of women. To start with, a high degree of natural flexibility is required. Did you do gymnastics in high school? Are you a yoga devotee? Then you're in the ballpark. A small and lithe frame can also be an advantage, as well as a long neck and a long tongue. The size of your clitoris is not as much of an issue as penis length is for men. However, the positioning of it is, and the higher up your clit is on your pubis, the better your chances of making contact.
Work With What You've Got
Even if you have the ideal body type, it's unlikely you would be able to go down on yourself without some practice and training - a lot of stretching, done consistently over months or maybe years. Taking yoga classes is highly recommended. And whatever your body type or attributes, there are some exercises you can do to improve your autocunnilingus attempts. Always warm your muscles up first by doing a little cardio or calisthenics, or take a hot bath or sauna prior to stretching.

Eyes on the Prize
When you are ready to attempt autocunnilingus, make sure you have already stretched out thoroughly. Lay on your back, on an exercise mat or carpeted surface. In order to take pressure off your neck vertebrae, you can place a couple of folded blankets or thick folded towels on the mat. Lay so that your upper back is on the blankets and the tops of your shoulders are aligned with the edge, with your head resting on the mat. Raise your legs and rock backward. Use your hands on your hips to push your legs up and over your head. Spread your legs about shoulder width and reach your arms up between your legs. Get your elbows behind your knees and use your arms to hold your legs down as you bring your face and pussy closer together. Stretch your neck upward while pulling your hips down.
If you are very limber in the hips and able to do a straddle split (or side split) you can get in the legs-over-head position and try spreading your extended legs to either side. Pull down gently on your legs if gravity and body weight isn't enough to close the gap.
Will My Boobs Get in the Way?
Your breasts should not get in the way unless they are larger than a C cup. But then, if you have really large breasts, you can probably lick your own nipples, which is at least some compensation. Likewise, you don't necessarily have to be a twig, but a large tummy will be an obstruction and will prevent you from being able to close the distance between your mouth and pubic area. It would also be best to have an empty stomach while trying to lick yourself, since the less you have in your middle, the easier it will be to fold yourself in half.
Should I Shave for Autocunnilingus?
You don't need to while you're practicing. In fact, having longer pubic hair may be a good thing, since it gives you a more reachable goal. If you are able to make contact with your muff, you'll know you're making real progress and it may give you encouragement to keep trying. However, once your clit is truly in range of your tongue, we suggest shaving. You will probably only be able to flick your clit lightly with the tip of your tongue, and hair would get in the way and decrease sensations.
Can My Boyfriend Help?
If your boyfriend wants to cheer you on, great. He can also assist with stretches by helping you stabilize your body and offering gentle pressure in the direction of the stretch. When you are actually attempting autocunnilingus, he can help you get into position, but should not help by trying to push your pussy down toward your face. This would put a lot of stress on your spine and could cause serious injury.
Easy Does It
The postures required for autocunnilingus are extreme and can put a lot of strain on the neck and back, so be cautious. Don't force anything, and don't attempt these exercises if you have a neck or back injury. Always stretch thoroughly before attempting to go down on yourself. And don't be discouraged at first. Success may take months or years. With a lot of practice and stretching, you may be able to develop this rare talent, and you'll at least become much more limber.
