Fellatio is more commonly referred to as a blow job.


More About Fellatio

Fellatio has been depicted and discussed as a sexual act for thousands of years. In fellatio, the penis owner's partner uses their mouth to stimulate the penis, bring pleasure to the receiver, and even bring them to orgasm.

Fellatio can be practiced as foreplay, as a replacement for intercourse, to prevent pregnancy, to preserve a someone's virginity, during menstruation, or during the last few weeks of a pregnancy.

Fellatio can sometimes be difficult to perform especially for people with a sensitive gag reflex. However, the gag reflex can be repressed with practice. Poor genital hygiene can also contribute to discomfort or lack of interest in performing fellatio on a partner.

Specific types of blowjobs may be called deepthroating, cock worship, skull fucking, and a double blowjob.
