Ass to mouth (commonly abbreviated as A2M or ATM) is a slang term primarily used to describe the withdrawal of a penis from the receptive partner's anus followed by the immediate insertion into the receptive partner's mouth.[1] A variant of this is known as ATOM (ass to other mouth) or ATOGM (ass to other girl's mouth) where the insertive partner removes his penis from one recipient's anus and inserts it into a second recipient's mouth.

Health concerns[edit]

...followed by oral sex.

If the recipient of ass-to-mouth is performing fellatio on a penis or object that was removed from his/her own rectum, the health risks are generally limited to disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract, which may proceed from introducing normal intestinal flora from the rectum to the mouth and upper digestive tract. If the recipient's ano-rectal area is infected with a sexually transmitted disease like gonorrhea, however, there is an added risk of transmitting the infection to that person's mouth and/or throat.[2][3] Intestinal parasites and other organisms can also be carried in feces. Risk of STI or parasitic transmission exists generally only if fecal particulate from an infected person is transmitted to the mouth of an uninfected person.[4]

Cultural references[edit]

In the film Clerks II the main characters have a discussion on ass to mouth early in the film, and it is alluded to throughout the film. The main character, Dante, repeatedly scolds Randal, "You never go ass-to-mouth!" Later however, Dante's love interest, Becky, tells him, "Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass to mouth."[5]
