I never heard the word "sexing" anywhere. So if you say "known by the slang terms...", you should really call things by their name and say "fucking".

Yes there is an English equivalent[edit]

Like it or not, Irrumatio is "face-fucking". Is it honestly conceivable that the author who wrote that there is no English-language equivalent was unaware of this, or simply too puritanical to write it??

If a man who performed irrumatio on a woman was an irrumator, what was the name for a woman on the receiving end of irrumatio? 90.209.80.216 (talk) 22:51, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Following English word construction rules... perhaps irrumatee, or "one who is irrumated", which just sounds weird. Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:22, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
In Latin sexual literature, women are only rarely, if ever, cast as the recipients of irrumatio, which was almost always an act directed aggressively at another man in order to silence or humiliate him. It often appears in the context of revenge fantasy. See Sexuality in ancient Rome#Os impurum for Roman attitudes and behaviors regarding oral sex. I've tried to distinguish Latin irrumatio from the broad English definition of "irrumation" given here. Cynwolfe (talk) 23:02, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

"Skull fucking"[edit]

Okay, I looked up "skull fucking" (don't ask why) and I was redirected here. Skull fucking, from what I've always been told, is when a penis penetrates an eye socket. Irrumatio is not synonymous with skull-fucking, and it doesn't seem appropriate to have skull-fucking redirect here, as it's a specific sexual act. Note this humorous video from the Onion involving skull fucking. The actor in that video refers to it as "ocular penetration," which, in all seriousness, actually sounds like it would be the correct non-vernacular term for this sexual activity. To me, it seems like skull fucking should have its own article, or have a disambiguation page, or redirect to a subordinate part of another applicable article which explains the act of skull fucking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Samcashion (talkcontribs) 04:10, March 8, 2012‎ (UTC)
