Hystory and culture of self sucking
Autofellatio, of course, is mentioned in many times throughout history. It is referenced in popular classic literature, popular liberal arts and artists, as well as mainstream pornography.
When the first man walked the earth and realized his sexuality, he probably pondered the idea of sexually pleasing himself through autofellatio. After all, if one wants something done right, it's best to do it themselves. Autofellatio has been an integral part of many ancient cultures. Such examples have survived through artifacts and architecture over time. This includes: Greek, Egyptian, Meso-American, and Asiatic Indian, that I am aware of. That is the history of autofellatio: Every man has pondered it at one time or another and will continue to do so. That's the history of autofellatio.
Autofellatio has had a history fraught with mythological god-behavior, and forbidden desire. In Victorian England many historical paintings depicting such acts were vandalized and led to the restriction of a thorough history of autofellatio from being widely publicized. Despite this, evidence of this sex act can be located as far back as ancient Egypt.
Archaeologists have found hieroglyphs and ancient paintings featuring men performing autofellatio. Academic David Lorton says that many ancient texts refer to autofellatio within the religious mythology of Egypt. He also notes that autofellatio was performed during rituals as a result of the sun god Ra's mythological birthing technique. Ra is said to have created Shu and Tefnut (Egyptian gods) by sucking himself into orgasm and then spitting his semen on the ground. Egyptologists still argue about the translation of some hieroglyphs and the meaning of divine blowjobs. Some experts feel that the ancient wall paintings mean that Horus, son of the god Osiris, maintained cosmic order by ingesting his own semen and thus keeping the stars in their places. Despite this debate as to the meaning of these hieroglyphs, there seems to be ample evidence that self-fellatio was at the very least a topic of discussion in Egypt. Egyptologist David Lorton says that many ancient texts refer to autofellatio within the religion of Egypt, both in the realm of the gods and among the followers performing religious rituals. According to Lorton, in the Papyrus Bremner-Rhind 28, 20–24, in a document called "Book of Overthrowing Apophis", there is a poem narrating how the sun god Ra had created the god Shu and goddess Tefnut by fellating himself and spitting out his own semen onto the ground. In ancient Egyptian texts, this act is usually performed by the god Atum, and most texts depict only the spitting of the semen or only the masturbation, but not both.
Michel Foucault cites Artemidorus' Oneirocritica as identifying the act of "taking [one's] sex organ into one's [own] mouth" as one of three ways to commit "relations with oneself." Artemidorus thought that dreams of this "unnatural" act portended the death of one's children, loss of one's mistresses, or extreme poverty.
In 1993, American feminist artist Kiki Smith created a beeswax life-size sculpture titled "Mother/Child" which included a depiction of man performing autofellatio. The term may be insulting to a man's masculinity, implying that someone performs autofellatio due either to extremely high self-regard or inability to get someone else to do it for him. This was the sense in which the term was used by President Donald Trump's former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, when he said of strategist Steve Bannon, "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock."
In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun god Ra is said to have performed autofellatio to have birthed the universe. This also foreshadows the intense experience and power that can be gotten from correctly performing autofellatio.
Society and culture
- From art galleries in the Upper East Side, to the porn studios of van Nuys California, perhaps the most famous spectacle of autofellatio is the adult star Ron Jeremy. Though it may be hard to believe, Mr. Jeremy (widely accepted as the king of porn) used to be quite thin. In the 1970’s a number of adult films were released showing Ron blowing himself. He notes in a modern day interview, that it was less for pleasure and more for the fact that it was so freakish.
- Ior Bock, a Finnish rock musician, has talked openly about his own ability to autofellate. This practice seems to be rooted deeply in Finnish tradition, and is called “saunasolmu” or in English the “sauna knot.” The name likely comes from the practice of getting it on with yourself in the warmth of a sauna, which would relax and soften the muscles, allowing for greater ease of access!
- Another interesting place that our enthrallment with autofellatio has taken us to is rib removal and ease of access. Probably the most common source for this urban legend is embodied in Marilyn Manson. The story goes like this: Marilyn Manson had a rib removed to make it possible to fellate himself. This rumour also circulated about Prince, and in another context Cher. In an investigation of this rumour it is clear that in no part of the western world has elective rib removal ever been recorded. This, obviously, is not to say that it could not have been done in secret, but there is no evidence of such a surgery ever being performed.
- The group “The Lonely Island” references autofellatio in a comedic manner in their “Like a Boss” song.
- Comedian Bill Hicks elaborated an oft-quoted riff on the subject of fellatio, "A woman one night yelled out, 'Yeah, you ever try it?' I said 'Yeah. Almost broke my back.'"
- Kevin Smith later developed a similar theme ("He broke his neck trying to suck his own dick") in his 1994 debut film Clerks. Writer/director Larry David, in his 1998 film Sour Grapes, used autofellatio as a recurring plot device with several mentions and muted shots of a lead actor fellating himself (back trouble allowing) throughout the movie.
- In the 26th season(2000–2001) of the popular Saturday Night Live comedy show Will Ferrell plays a character who joins a yoga class with the sole purpose to be able to fellate himself as a part of reaching Samadhi. In the skit the character is shown to have been successful after three years of efforts.
- In the 2001 film Scary Movie 2, Professor Dwight Hartman (David Cross) performs autofellatio after rebuffing Theo's (Kathleen Robertson) offer to perform oral sex on him while she attempts to seduce him to steal keys. She ultimately knocks him unconscious with a telephone and steals the keys.
- The opening sequence of the 2006 film Shortbus shows James (Paul Dawson) fellating himself on videotape; like all of Shortbus's sexual content, the scene was unsimulated.
Autofellatio is a niche in pornography. While relatively few pornographic films involve autofellatio, some pornographic actors are noted for this skill, including Ron Jeremy for his 1970s examples on film. Other actors including Scott O'Hara, Cole Youngblood, Steve Holmes, and Ricky Martinez have also been featured performing autofellatio and the practice has become a pornographic masturbation subgenre. In Brian W. Aldiss' 1970 semi-autobiographical novel The Hand-Reared Boy, he describes group masturbation practices at a British boys' boarding school. One boy with an especially large penis is capable of fellating himself, a fact which the narrator, Horatio Stubbs, verifies.
