Blow Job

By | July 9, 2008

SuzeHave you ever wondered where the term “blow job” came from? Because as we all know it this act involves the use of suction not blowing, although during a blow job Alex does like me to blow on his wet cock, giving him sensory stimulation with the hot/cold extremes. Dipping a cock in icy water and then warming it up in your mouth is a good one too. 😉

I digress…So, I thought I would look in to why we call fellatio a blow job and came across some interesting links.

It is documented that the Victorians used the expression as slang to mean below the belt. Also it has been said to originate from the resulting explosion of orgasm, as in blow like a volcano. Another explanation believed to be Eighteen century European, is that a prostitute was known as a “blower” and the name for a cock was “whorepipe” at the time. Hence, to blow your pipe. I’m not sure about this, it sounds a little too contrived. Lol

For a little light hearted comparison, the Americans in the 1940’s & 1950’s knew it as being a jet airplane, as it took off and gave everyone a blow job. I kid you not! 😉

Personally, I’m inclined to believe the terminology came about because of the resulting explosive orgasm. But who knows, there doesn’t seem to be any firm evidence to point to any of the possible explanations.

It is however, believed that “blow job’s” popularity grew as a result of the 1960’s film of the same name by Andy Wahol. I’m going to see if I can find a copy

I found it on good old YouTube and could not stop myself from thinking “watch your head on that bloody wall. You will see what I mean if you watch it. 🙂

The guy who features in it is called DeVeren Bookwalter I had never heard of him until today. He appeared in many Globe Shakespearian productions and films including The Omega Man and the enforcer.

Right, I’m off to practice now. 😉
