Alternative forms

  • fellation

Etymology

Borrowed from Latin fellātio, from fellātus, perfect participle of fellō (I suck, I fellate). The word started to appear in medical literature in the 19th century but it was still treated as Latin. In 1919 the California Supreme Court struck down a law criminalizing “fellatio” because the state constitution required laws to be written in English. By the late 20th century fellatio was treated as an English word.
