Many cultures hold mixed attitudes about women’s genitals, with shame and worries about genital hygiene and appearance coming up against the promotion of the enjoyment of sex. So perhaps it isn’t surprising that women prefer to engage in oral sex in on-going relationships rather than during casual sex. One study (Armstrong et al 2009, 2010) found that women who received oral sex did so during 26% of casual sex events, compared with 62% of relationship events. Interestingly, men received oral sex in 41% of casual events and 70% of relationship sex. So, as Chambers (2007) concluded, most women and men felt more comfortable receiving oral sex during sex with a committed partner,but men are more comfortable than women doing it with a casual sex partner. THE ILLUSTRATED CLITORIS iphone app is aimed at helping both men and women to develop positive attitudes about the female genitals as well as accurate information about how the clitoris contributes to women’s sexual arousal.
