After watching and listening to the above I, as well as any other woman, might add: “it won’t lick itself, so what are you waiting for?” Steel Panther excels at writing sexually explicit and funny lyrics, but obviously oral sex hasn’t started to be popular in their heyday. Who actually ‘invented’ it? Aren’t you curious?
It seems that using mouth and tongue to please another person was already common among the ancient people. Especially before Christian missionaries started to fight with it, it was appreciated in many primitive cultures.
Already in the 7th century BC, a poet, Archilloch wrote a poem, a hymn to fellatio – the oldest known literary form about this manner of ars amandi, and as the ancient Greeks considered oral sex as one of the most pleasant ways of loving, this poem may have not been the only one. Ancient Romans were of the same opinion about blow jobs, the only difference is that there was rank involved. It was ok to receive fellatio from somebody of a lower rank than you, while it was considered degrading and out of question to give it to somebody that stood lower in the hierarchy than you..
Ancient Chinese also favoured oral sex, their poets and philosophers encouraged both sexes to take every possible pleasure from it. According to them, eating your woman out granted her eternal youth and health.
Indian Kamasutra also describes oral sex, here however, the authors suggest that this kind of pleasures should be provided by a ‘qualified personnel’ rather than spouses. Oral sex though pleasant was considered impure and it was impossible to require impure things from a loved person.
The problem came with Christianity and middle dark ages when everything connected with sex started to be seen as sin, obviously this form of pleasuring one another joined the long list of transgressions. Sex that was not leading to procreation and served only the purpose of creating pleasure and fulfilling one’s desire couldn’t be left out. According to the middle ages doctrine anything that did it led you the very bottom of hell. Do I have to add that such a close, intimate contact between lips and sexual organs was filthy as hell at the very least in the eyes of church representatives?
As a result, quite a lot of cultures had to say bye to fellatio and cunnilingus for quite a long time – all the inhabitants of Africa, both Americas, even Australian Aborigenes…
What’s funny is that Jews never had these kind of restrictions against oral sex. It was always considered ‘natural’ in this religion…
