The best way to hone your oral sex skills is to practice. (I know. Tragic, right?) Remember there is no one way to do it right. However, you have the best barometer right there in front of you: Your partner. S/he will be able to let you know if what you're doing is working. Ideally, you'll have an expressive partner who can tell you exactly what does and doesn't feel right. But sometimes our partners are not the talking types, so pay attention to even the subtlest of indicators: hip movements, breathing patterns, even the tensed and/or relaxed state of his/her hands. (You want there to be a little tension, but not so much that s/he may be in pain! Always ask if you think you may be hurting your partner.)
