Dislike of receiving oral sex


Oh no. I hate it. I lie there getting cold, feeling embarrased and worrying if there's something wrong with me. The mood is so over when men go south on me. I try but I feel like a huge failure because it just doesn't get me off.
Kendra, 48, musician, London

I am far too preoccupied with how I smell and taste to enjoy oral sex. My husband says he loves it but I can't believe him.
Sian, 40, cafe owner, Brighton

I don't understand how girls manage to relax when a man goes down on them. I find it impossible, I guess I'm too prudish! I'm so ashamed of my body that I struggle to look at myself in the mirror, so the thought of a man seeing me up close like that... no way!
Leah, 21, student, Northampton

It's not that I don't like it, it's just that it doesn't do anything for me. I've tried with several different partners so it can't be down to them...
Billie, 30, marketing manager, Worthing

I'm always worried about turning a guy off because I'm not clean enough or too hairy down there.
Catherine, 25, journalist, Swindon

When my husband goes down on me, I feel like I'm completely inactive and I become anxious when I'm not in control of the situation.
Kate, 35, mum of two, Poole
