Oral Sex Debate: Are You Missing Out?
Oral sex is just as intimate -- if not more intimate -- than sex. In fact, a recent survey in Woman's Day indicates that couples will spend at least 20 minutes on foreplay before intercourse.

A reported 41 percent of women enjoy giving and receiving oral sex and feel empowered while doing so. However, 17 percent don't like it and feel that it can be demeaning.

Is there anything you and your partner can do to help you enjoy the benefits of oral?

The first step to help you and your partner get intimate is to communicate your fears, desires and fantasies to each other.

When you're open and honest, it helps you both feel connected and more intimate with one another.

Are you missing out on not participating in oral sex with your partner? Sexologist Ava Cadell, PhD, shares why oral sex is beneficial, as well as ways to help you and your partner reach satisfaction when you're intimate.
