Tongue Lengthening for Cunnilingus
(by Mika Sasaki, M.D.)
Tongue lengthening falls into two general categories. In a historical and yogic context the tongue can be genuinely lengthened and enlarged by "milking" it, a process most analogous to forms of vacuum pumping. To simplify, the tongue is held and kneaded and massaged, and then, using a cloth to hold it, it is pulled and twisted it for a few minutes. Over time this will leave a greatly lengthened tongue for use in advanced yogic practices that are well beyond the scope of this FAQ. If you are interested in more on this subject investigate Khechari Mudra and Jivhanirlekhan yogic techniques, but be aware that not all practitioners of these arts in the West will espouse these more esoteric practices.
More commonly - so commonly in fact that it's really the only kind one will see in the West - is the cutting of the sublingual frenulum. This doesn't actually lengthen the tongue, but it can dramatically increase its mobility by eliminating the "tongue tied" effect, giving both the illusion and the function of lengthening. Not all people can achieve lengthening using this technique, but more radical procedures cut into the musculature under the tongue further exaggerate the effect.
It is not only highly recommended that all males in their beginning training stages undergo frenectomy to increase their oral effectiveness, but many
progressive-feminist families also choose to give their children a head start by performing this procedure early on.
A frenum is a fold of tissue or muscle connecting the lips cheek or tongue to the jawbone. A frenectomy is the removal of one of these folds of tissue.
The procedure to remove this is a called labial frenectomy.
A lingual frenectomy removes the fold of tissue under the tongue.
Some older children or teenagers may notice that the frenum under their tongue becomes stuck between their front teeth or
that they can't stick their tongue out as far as their friends can.
To complete a frenectomy a surgeon can use a scalpel or a laser. A laser minimizes bleeding reduces the need for
sutures and causes less postoperative pain. If a scalpel is used sutures will be needed after surgery.
People receiving a laser frenectomy must remain completely still during the operation so younger children may require
general anesthesia. In older children and adults the procedure can be done with local anesthesia with or without nitrous oxide.
The surgery itself takes very little time and can be completed in as little as 10 to 15 minutes.
A frenectomy can take several weeks to heal completely. Rinsing with salt water helps keep the area clean.
Brush and floss carefully around the area. Depending on the type of stitches your dentist uses you may need to return to the dentist to have your stitches removed or they may dissolve on their own.
If the operation does not lead to satisfactory results it may be repeated. Redoing a lingual frenectomy is somewhat common.
Any surgery carries a risk of bleeding. Because of the many blood vessels in the tongue lingual frenectomies are more likely to result in bleeding although this complication is quite rare.
