More info than you wanted to know about 69

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedi

The 69 position, also known by its French name soixante-neuf, is one of the most commonly known sexual positions. It allows simultaneous mutual oral sex.

In this position, the two individuals generally lie down, one on top of the other or side to side. However, instead of lying face to face, each places their head next to the other's genitalia, enabling the genitalia of both partners to be orally stimulated at the same time.

It is common for one or both members to insert a finger into the vagina or anus of the other to add additional stimulation and pleasure. Alternatively, a similar position can be taken by one upright and one inverted individual. However, some individuals find it difficult in this position to concentrate on giving while receiving.

Also the position places the more sensitive underside of the penis against the top of the mouth rather than against the tongue, thus reducing the quality and variety of the stimulation. The clitoris is not disadvantaged by the position.

It is known as 'Congress of the Crow' in the Kama Sutra, "because each partner takes something unclean into the mouth." People who are affiliated with the sex position are called "69ers".

A variation on the 69 position is the "73", which is the 69 position with two fingers inserted into each partner's anus. One finger in each other's anus is a "71".

An old joke suggests that a 68 means one partner will perform oral sex on the other, who will then 'owe the performer one'.

The name comes from the fact that the digits 6 and 9 are the same character, just rotated 180 degrees. Note that this is not the number "69", but the digits 6 and 9. The letter/digit combination L7 is similar and forms a box shape.

As well as 6 and 9 being the same digit rotated 180 degrees, they are also binary complements:
6 = 0110
9 = 1001

The north-south position in wrestling is based on the 69.

In pre-Christian ancient Rome sexual acts were generally seen through the prism of submission and control. This is apparent in the two Latin words for the act: irrumare (to penetrate orally), and fellare (to be penetrated orally). Under this system, it was considered to be abhorrent for a male to perform fellatio or cunnilingus, since that would mean that he was penetrated (controlled), whereas receiving fellatio from a woman or another man of lower social status (such as a slave or debtor) was not humiliating.

(On the contrary, in Greece, there was a tendency to see the person "performing" oral sex as active and the "receiving" party as passive.[citation needed]) The Romans regarded oral sex as being far more shameful than, for example, anal sex – known practitioners were supposed to have foul breath and were often unwelcome as guests at a dinner table [4].

The practice was taboo for public health reasons, as well. In Rome, the genitals were considered to be unclean. Oral sex was thought to make the mouth dirty, and (ultimately) to present a public health risk.

Interestingly, the practice of fellatio was said to have been introduced by the women of Lesbos, who used to whiten their lips as though with semen.

The Ancient Indian Kama Sutra, dating from the first centuries AD, does describe oral sex [5], discussing fellatio in great detail and only briefly mentioning cunnilingus. However, according to the Kama Sutra, fellatio is above all a characteristic of eunuchs, who use their mouths as a substitute for female genitalia. The author states that it is also practiced by "unchaste women", but mentions widespread traditional concerns about this being a degrading or unclean practice, with known practitioners being evaded as love partners in large parts of the country. He seems to agree with these attitudes to some extent, claiming that "a wise man" should not engage in that form of intercourse, while acknowledging that it can be appropriate in some (unspecified) cases.

A common misperception is that oral sex is still nominally illegal in some states in the U.S. However, in the U.S. Supreme Court case Lawrence v. Texas (2003) Justice Anthony Kennedy writing for the majority struck down all anti-sodomy laws in the United States, declaring that such laws violated the liberty phrase of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Most anti-oral sex laws had not been enforced prior to this overturning.
