Oral sex

Question ID: 29516

Salaam Mufti. I would like to say jazakallah in advance for answering my question and taking the time out to do so. It is very personal in nature but I have to ask.
My wife doesn’t enjoy having sexual intercourse and it is like a big effort if and when we actually do it. Recently something took over me and after years of marriage, for the first time, I started licking her bottom private parts. She/we really enjoyed the whole experience including the intercourse and it’s brought us closer.
Now she wants me to lick her everytime, this has led to more intercourse and bringing us closer.
My worry is and confusion is that I have read on your website about oral sex, which I think this is, sometimes Mufti says it is Haraam and sometimes it is makrooh, please answer which of the above it is and explain so we can understand.
Jazakallah and forgive the question.
