FelchingFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search
******** is a sexual practice involving the act of sucking semen out of the vagina or anus of one's partner after sex. The act of sucking the semen and then passing it, through mouth-to-mouth or open-mouth kissing, is often referred to as "snowballing"; although the latter is typically associated with semen ejaculated into a mouth from fellatio.
******** may also refer to the alleged **** insertion of a small animal (usually a gerbil) for the purpose of sexual stimulation. (See also gerbiling.)
In This Film is Not Yet Rated, John Waters says, "No one has ever done ********.... I know a lot of perverts, and I don't know anyone who's done that."
Earliest appearance of the termAccording to the 2003 draft entry for "felch" in the Oxford English Dictionary, the earliest occurrence of the word in print appears to have been in The Argot of the Homosexual Subculture by Ronald A. Farrell in 1972.
FELTCH [sic] (v.): To use one's mouth or tongue on the anus of his partner; analingus or male cunnilingus (syn. RIM).
The word was subsequently used in the work of Zap Comix underground cartoonists, Robert Crumb, Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso, S. Clay Wilson, "Spain" Rodriguez, Robert Williams in 1975. The Zap collective published two sexually themed comic books, Snatch and Jiz and decided to continue pushing the envelope by publishing a book named Felch. According to Williams:
OK, since we didnt get in any trouble with Snatch and Jiz, and a couple of these other comics, I was partying one night with Crumb, Wilson and these other guys. And Wilson mentioned to me, he says, "I was talking to Ken Weaver and he had this real interesting word." I said what, "What is it?" "A word called 'felch.'" I said, "What does that mean?" He said, "It is a real old term and it means orally withdrawing semen from someones lower digestive tract after having **** sex." I said, "Theres a word for something like that?" Thats incredible that not only is there a word like that, but it has a provenance. Hell yeah, were going to do a felch comic. So I talked to Crumb, "Yeah, were going to do a felch comic."
Crumb's contribution was a parody of an editorial cartoon featuring John Q. Public ******** "Mother Nature/Lady Liberty" after she has had **** sex with a Pravda-style cartoon capitalist. Williams produced a ******** themed solo work in 1975 titled The Nectar of Satan.

I was told years ago that ******** had something to do with clearing crap off church pews in days of old, after the local hoi polloi, blissfully ignorant of the delights of either shreddies or bog rolls, had parked their sweaty arses on them. Any ecclesio-scatological experts out there able to confirm this?
which until very recently wasn't a criminal offence, alot of our sexual laws come from the victorian era and they were as is quite well know very strightlaced, alot of the laws that refer to "the person" should read "the penis", they couldn't believe that anyone would have sex with a corpse so saw no need to make it illegal
I think its only in about 1999 that you could be charge with nercophelia rather then tampering with a corpse- thats what I was taught at uni and not from personal experiance
true but i think I'm correct in saying that necrophelia (in a purely forensic sense) is sexual attraction to a dead body, the sucking would count as a sexual act as its done for the purpose of sexual stimulation/release
