History of masturbation Onan

Religious views

Autofellatio is the act of oral stimulation of one's own penis as a form of masturbation. It is
physically possible for men who have sufficient flexibility, penis size or a combination of
the two to perform autofellatio.[1] Autofellatio is a niche in pornography.[2][3][4]

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.[5][6] According to Lorton, in the Papyrus Bremner-Rhind 28, 2024, 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.[5] 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.[5]
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.[7]

Physical aspects
Few men possess sufficient flexibility and penis length to safely perform the necessary
frontbend.[1] However, increased flexibility achieved via gravity-assisted positions, and
physical training such as gymnastics, contortion, or yoga may make it possible for some.
American biologists Craig Bartle and Alfred Charles Kinsey reported that fewer than 1% of
males can successfully orally contact their own penis and that only 2 or 3 men in a
thousand could perform a full autofellatio.[8] Previously, autofellatio was considered by
behavioristic science a problem rather than as a variety in sexual practice.[9]

References in popular culture

While relatively few pornographic films involve autofellatio, some pornographic actors are
noted for this skill including Ron Jeremy for his 1970s examples on film.[10][11] 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 sub genre. In Brian W. Aldiss' 1970 semi-autobiographical novel The HandReared 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.[12]
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."[13] Kevin
Smith later developed a similar theme ("He broke his neck trying to suck his own dick") in
his 1994 debut film Clerks.[14] 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
(20002001) 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.[15] In the skit the character is shown to have been successful after
three years of efforts.[15] 2006 opening sequence of Shortbus shows James (Paul Dawson)
fellating himself which he videos while a neighbor voyeuristically watches.[16][17]
