Adding the comment of Brian Pronger about receving fellatio as a "demasculinizing" experience[edit]

I think it would be interesting to the "cultural views" part the comment that Brian Pronger (Associate Professor in the Faculty of Physical Education and Health, at the University of Toronto, author of "The arena of masculinity") makes about men giving fellatio in his text “On your knees: carnal knowledge, masculine dissolution, doing feminism.", from the collection of texts "Men Doing Feminism" (1998):

I have argued that masculine desire is the desire to conquer and protect space; it is desire shaped in the pouvoir of the expanding phallus and closed anus. Being a homosexual bottom inverts this desire. Space is given away. [...] Giving oral sex works similarly, perhaps even more effectively. [...] with fellatio one caresses the insinuating presence of another man, voluptuously welcoming him into one's space, by cushioning one's teeth with one's lips. Rather than repelling the entrance of another man one does everything one can to make him feel welcome. Giving space to another man, particularly the most intimate spaces of anus and mouth is the opposite of masculine desire. When men eroticize the entrance of other men into their space, anally or orally, they are giving puissance to the deterritorialization of their masculine desire. The erotic event of being willingly, indeed joyfully, penetrated orally or anally, deterritorializes the bodies of bundles-of desire-with-penises and literally opens the gates to the freedom of demasculinized desire.

It can by found page 75-76 of the Google Books version of the book. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lboukoko (talkcontribs)

Why are the images of only under-endowed men?[edit]

That seems prejudiced against some of us. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.30.55.165 (talkcontribs)

taste and odor[edit]

Should this section exist? It doesn't have medical citations to back its claims and refers specifically to swallowing semen which isn't a necessary component of fellatio. Also, the quote "It may be that 'few women praise the taste' of semen" adds nothing and doesn't take into account males who perform fellatio. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.231.171.81 (talk) 08:45, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Potentially useful source[edit]

Merger proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I propose that Deep-throating be merged into Fellatio. Deep-throating is a variety of fellatio and could be discussed in a separate section here. With recent terminology changes to Deep-throating, the difficulty of maintaining both branches of a content fork has become apparent. Peter Chastain [¡hablá!] 01:46, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Agreed. DT is just one aspect of this subject and should just be covered in a section in this article. Meters (talk) 05:08, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support - the DT article is small enough that it could be practically cut and pasted into its own section in the Fellatio article. There's only one image to show the act, and that's acceptable use. Curved Space (talk) 08:50, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support unneeded content fork, small enough not to warrant its own article --DannyS712 (talk) 00:43, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support if it has it's own section and SeedFeeder's graphic work is included. From the merge type, I am assuming that is how the content is to be handled. (Parenthetically, whichever is decided upon, I will look into reworking and properly sourcing the positions section. It has been tagged since 2016.) --Surv1v4l1st Talk|Contribs 06:20, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Support It is almost similar that you can copy and paste it into the Fellatio article --Randomchooser (talk) 19:11, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Result: Merged by this editor. Followup edits by me here, here, here and here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 00:07, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
