“Oral sex can be a fun, wonderfully satisfying part of sex,” says Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexpert for AdamAndEve.com. “Some people shy away from oral sex because of the level of intimacy involved, but with a little communication and practice, oral sex can be a joyful and important part of a sexual repertoire.”
“Adam & Eve encourages adults to explore their sexuality and educate themselves on everything from sexual health to pleasure enhancement,” says AdamAndEve.com director of Marketing Chad Davis. “From erotic toys to self-help books, AdamAndEve.com has a variety of accessories for individuals and couples.”
