How many inches can the average girl take in her mouth?

I'm really nervous because I'm probably going to "do the deed" with my long-term boyfriend sometime soon, and one thing I'm particularly nervous about is giving a bj. This might be considered pathetic, but I experimented with a banana and found that I could take in around 5 inches of the banana. At that point, around an inch was literally in my throat, which felt strange. The thing is, he's big (around 7.5 inches) so I don't think I'll be able to take it all. Is that normal? How many inches can girls usually take?

  • Sounds like what you're doing is about average, and if you deep throat it a little more by pushing it all the way back for a second, on occasion that may drive him nuts. Still one thing that may make you feel better is that the most sensitive part is the end of his penis. So, you can probably still do an amazing job if you just focused on the end and gave it a lot of love. Especially with your tongue.

    Anyway you'll probably do fine. don't worry too much about taking it all in. quite a few of my Girlfriends couldn't but they did great. You probably will too. If you get nervous or something just ask him for a little instruction. Most people don't mind giving a little instruction to help someone along.

    Bottom line, though. You have nothing to worry about. Just try your best and ask for directions if you get lost.

    Good luck.

  • I believe 4-5 inches is the average.. I know for some girls when a guy is 7 inches or more, they do both their hands and mouth. - I don't use my hands for I suck at giving hands jobs. LOL

    It comes down to your gag reflexes. You're not going to be able to take it all in overnight. Keep sucking it till you're used to it and that your mouth is well adjusted. - Mix it up with cum, flavor lubes, saliva, pre cum.. Get it sloppy wet.

    Don't rush into it. Breathe through your nose, relax your throat. Tilt your head back slightly, have him lightly thrust his c-ock down your throat. The best position for is when you're on your knees and if you get better at it and have mastered it, try doing it upside down on the bed. Also, other positions as well.. Since he's 7.5 inches, I wouldn't recommend letting him face f***ing you though it is HOT..

    My ex boyfriend was 7 inches and I did gag now and then but I got it all into my mouth, make it very wet.. When he is about to cum, I would have him deepthroat me and come down my throat so he wouldn't have to pull out and the sensation for him will be amazing because the tightness. I got him to be semi hard so it was easier. Soon I was like "Look ma, no hands" LOL - I take time to warm up and I can begin to feel my throat relaxing. I feel like I have to keep a delicate balance between my breathing, my relaxed throat, and this relentless c-ock that is drilling my mouth..

    Your mind will play an important role in this too, you must think "I want to please my man." Something along those lines.

    Also, rhythm is important. I'm sure you trust him so he needs to be aware of what he's doing.

    Practice! Have fun! Oh by the way, don't use a banana.. It won't compare to how brick hard he will be.

  • You're probably doing better than average already, and understand that these things take practice and experience, and that your natural body variations, which you can't do anything about, also play a role.

    The most important part of a BJ is enthusiasm; if the girl is into it, it's a thousand times better than if she isn't, regardless of technique.

  • My partner gets maybe 4.5" in. If you can learn to get more that's awesome. I think it's about angle though - if you want to deep throat you need to align throat and mouth. I assume.

  • Most girls cannot take more than 5 or 6 inches without a lot of practice. He shouldn't be expecting deepthroat right off the bat.

  • Probably depends on how relaxed her (or his, in my case) throat is.

    Yes the banana thing is pathetic. But only because I'm allergic to them.

  • I've had girls take me in their throats swallowing all of me, I've had girls that gagged without even taking the head in, and I've had girls take 5 inches... there is no norm. My advice, stop worrying, take what you can and have fun with him, I don't care how much a girl can take as long as I know she's enjoying what she's giving me. The more she enjoys herself, the more I want to give back to her.

    • haha I mean I know I'll enjoy it, I just want to know I'm pleasing him too.

  • I would not worry about that. I am much bigger than average length and find that women can usually only take 5-6 inches. Most of the sensitivity is in the head and that is the first couple of inches, so yay!

  • Generally how many inches girls can take dick, as blow job

  • I am about that size and that is fine. Somehow my girl (maybe x gf) can take all of it. It amazes me that she can do that but taking 5 and actually enjoying pleasing him is the key

  • a tip I heard a while ago was just breath through your nose and try to relax your throat.

    • another tip is if you can't get the last few inches you can touch your thumb with your index or middle finger and just stroke the part that is not in your mouth.

  • I have a 6 inches penis, and My Girlfriend couldn't take it all , plus It's not necessary to take it all in your mouth, just when you bj, focus on the head of the penis, that part is so sensitive, and it feels so f****ing good ..

  • Suck as much as you feel comfortable with, but just make sure you suck him good and play with his balls while doing so. Your going to love the feeling when he ejaculates into your mouth. I recomend swallowing his stuff while still sucking on him.

  • Practice practice practice. Don't worry about taking him all in all at once right off the bat. If you're new at doing this, you'll just frustrate yourself and him. Some things that have helped me (and I've been told I'm pretty good at it for whatever it's worth) 1. Use your tongue. The head and the underside are particularly sensitive so as you pull back, make a quick circle around the head with your tongue before you take him back in again. Use the tip of your tongue and run it along the length of the underside, flick the tip and then take as much as you can. 2. Use your hand along with your mouth. Make a circle with your thumb and fingers and put them up to your lips. This will extend the amount of his cock that you are covering. 3. Watch p*rn . Watch how those girls do it. Seriously, you very seldom see them deep throating a cock and if they do, it's never for more than a few seconds at a time. 4. Don't force it. If you try to take too much and gag yourself, you could end up vomiting and trust me, NOTHING kills the mood faster lol.

    If you can do 5 inches, you're doing really well. Deep throat is something that takes practice... a little more for a little longer over a period of time until you can comfortably take all of it. You'll have to learn to control your breathing too because taking that much cock into your throat will cut off your air supply. It helped me to take a muscle relaxer beforehand. (Allow about 15 minutes for it to kick in.) Also, it got a LOT easier for me when I had my tonsils removed. (Just a happy side effect of the surgery... i DO NOT recommend having major surgery JUST so you can swallow a cock. That's just crazy.)

    Most of all - have fun. If you are genuinely enjoying yourself, then he will love it no matter how much or how little you can take. Talk to each other. Ask him what he likes and then do that.

    Finally, when he cums, swallow. It's just good manners. ;)

  • I can barely take the tip in honestly but I still drove my boyfriend crazy with my tongue & the tip of his dick
