Deep throat

Deep throat is a sexual act in fellatio, in which the whole erect penis, down to the testicles or further, is taken into the mouth and throat, of another person. Many men derive great sexual pleasure from this act, since the penis can be stimulated by the mouth, tongue, and throat of their partner.

The adjective deep and the noun throat are often concatenated to form the verb to deepthroat.


Receiver dominated

Often, deepthroat is portrayed in rough-sex settings in a manner referred to as "Throat gagging or choking", "skull fucking", and "face fucking", which are usually faster and more dominated by the male who attempts to force the mouth to penis contact deepthroat - even sometimes going to extremes when the person deepthroating indicates that they do not enjoy the deepthroat measures of the act.[original research?]

Some people find the act of deepthroating stimulating due to the fact that the partner performing the fellatio may appear as being dominated when his or her eyes water from the gagging when the penis is in his or her throat cuts off their air supply; If the deepthroater is a woman, she may wear eye makeup that runs. In some scenes, the receptive partner may cough up saliva or vomit as a result of the roughness or depth of the penetration; this also depends on the length and girth of the penis[citation needed].

Performer dominated

When the person performing the deep throat dominates the deepthroat scene, the act is usually slower, more calculated with the actor performing for the camera. As a by-product of the deepthroat act, large amounts of thick saliva are released, lubricating the throat so that the penis can fit into the throat more easily. Most people also shed tears while deepthroating. Some performers choose not to eat for hours before performing in order to avoid vomiting. Some performers claim deepthroating as their "specialty", but often find their limits when performing with larger penises.

Deepthroat in the 1970s

Following Linda Lovelace's famous performance, only two other actresses of the 1970s era became famous for deepthroat. C. J. Laing, who had a prolific career in porn, had a memorable deepthroat performance in "Anyone But My Husband" where she deepthroated Tony "The Hook" Perez. Annie Sprinkle, another actress discovered by Deep Throat's director Gerard Damiano, frequently deepthroated in her many movies.

Deepthroat in the 1980s

Little Oral Annie is probably the most famous deepthroating porn actress of the 1980s, having performed the act on every actor she worked with including the legendary John Holmes. Other Deepthroat actresses of the 1980s include Janey Robbins, and the early career of Jeanna Fine. Aja, whose career spanned from the late 80s to the early 90s, with a comeback in the 2000s, was also an accomplished deepthroater.

Deepthroat in the 1990s

Jeanna Fine, whose active career has spanned into 3 decades, was one of the first actresses to consider herself a deepthroat artist and has ascended to legendary status for performing the act. Debi Diamond, whose career also began in the 1980s and peaked in the 90s, was a notable deepthroat artist. Late in the decade, Bobbi Bliss became another legendary deepthroater by being one of the few actresses to deepthroat one of porn's largest actors Mandingo. Alexandra Quinn also has a prolific career of deepthroating, spanning from the 1980s to the 2000s.
Deepthroat in the 2000s

By the 2000s, numerous actresses began to emerge as specialists in deepthroat, becoming famous and popular as a result; such as Belladonna, Nikita Denise, Ashley Blue, Violet Marcell, Sunrise Adams, Ava Devine, Briana Banks, Katsumi, Lauren Phoenix, Gia Paloma, Courtney Simpson, Hillary Scott, Tory Lane, Audrey Hollander, Sasha Grey, Bobbi Starr, Samantha Hahn and Isabella Pacino. Briana Banks claims not to have a gag reflex, so she is able to deep throat quite easily. Annette Schwarz, a German actress, has taken deep throat to new extremes demonstrating the ability to not only deepthroat the largest of penises, but to insert the testicles in her mouth at the same time, in addition to being able to deepthroat two penises at once. Many of recent history's deepthroat artists have gone to win the coveted Performer of the Year and other AVN Awards. Numerous DVD series are now dedicated to deepthroating, often with the word throat in the title.

Deepthroat on the Internet

Amateur deepthroat artists have been successful having their own site including Heather Harmon's ideepthroat.com, Deb's Deepthroat, Dutch amateur Anna with deepthroatexpert.com and extreme-deepthroat artist Cynical Angel at Cynicalangel.com, an amateur model that specializes in deepthroating extra long dildos. Anne Howe was also known for doing extreme deepthroat, but her site has since deactivated. Angel(cynicalangel) and Harmon (frequently credited as "Heather Brooke" due to mislabeling on peer-to-peer networks) is notable for being able to deepthroat a penis while ejaculation simultaneously occurs,

With the 1990s and the rise of gonzo pornography, variations on the act began to appear in some pornographic movies, particular greater emphasis on rough deep throating. For example, the Gag Factor series of films by JM Productions, and Throat Gaggers series of films produced by Red Light District, both feature "rough" deep throating (irrumatio). The website Youngthroats.com also has a focus on "rough" deepthroating, as well as young-looking performers. Numerous adult websites are dedicated to deepthroating. As an upcoming fetish, deep throating seems to have taken a flight on the internet.

In the media

Cynthia Heimel, author of Sex Tips for Girls, attempted to demythologize the act — and the deep throating aspect of Deep Throat — in a section of her book deliberately named after the film. She wrote of the deep throating scenes in the films, "it's all done with mirrors" where the erect penis is skillfully shoved past the performer's cheek, creating the desired visual impression on the screen.[1] However, the act has clearly and repeatedly been demonstrated as possible since this statement was made, especially after the dawn of Internet pornography. The statement that the deep throating acts in Deep Throat were faked is unsubstantiated. In fact, they could not have been faked in the method described by Ms. Heimel, as they were not done from a side view.
