Auparishtaka is a term used in the kama sutra to describe techniques for oral sex, even stating that eunuchs are the chief experts in performing auparishtaka.

 

It also describes two kinds of eunuchs, i.e. those who are disguised as females, and those who dress up as males, with the latter being described as the one that is expected to give the most perfect form of oral sex.
