fellation / fellatorism , stimulation of the penis with the lips, tongue and mouth by a male or female partner for sexual pleasure or for orgasm and ejaculation.

Since HIV may be contained in the seminal and vaginal fluids of an HIV-infected person, protection in the form of a latex condom with spermicide (preferably nonoxynol-9) is recommended for fellatio and a dental dam or latex barrier should be used for cunnilingus.

No cases have been reported yet of people being infected with HIV by having oral sex performed on them.Etymology: From the Latin fellâtus , past participle of fellâre , to suck, and fello, originally meaning to suck the teat.Synonyms: coitus in os; corvus (obs.); oral copulation of the penis; penilinctus; penilingism; penilingus; penosugia; phallalingus; virilingus.
