Chus Martinez On AutofellatioPosted: June 23, 2013
Autofellatio – also known as yogafellatio – is the act of orally stimulating one’s own penis. It is physically possible for men who have sufficient flexibility, penis size or a combination of the two to suck themselves off.
Egyptologist David Lorton claims 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 his own semen onto the ground. In ancient Egyptian texts this act is usually performed by the god Atum.
Few men possess sufficient flexibility and penis length to safely execute the necessary front bend to perform autofellatio. The yoga position known as Plough is usually recommended as the easiest and safest way for men to autofellate themselves. The increased flexibility achieved via gravity-assisted positions such as Plough, and physical training such as gymnastics, contortion, or yoga, make autofellatio possible for many men.
American biologists Craig Bartle and Alfred Charles Kinsey reported that fewer than 1% of males can successfully make oral contact with their own penis, and that only 2 or 3 men in a thousand could perform a full autofellatio. With the increasing popularity of yoga around the world, the percentage of men able to autofellate is steadily increasing.
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 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. It is estimated that about 40 percent of men who take up yoga do so in the hope that it will enable them to autofellate.
