    A "job" or an action, that is done to make the receiver "blow" or orgasm...

    Hence the name....blowjob....:eyes

    Pretty self explanatory as I see it.....:shrug

    Re: where did the word blowjob came from?

    "job" seems to be a commonly-used term meaning something to get a guy off (as in handjob, blowjob, rimjob).

    I don't know that "blow" would refer to the orgasm, otherwise, handjobs could be called blowjobs, too

    I had always assumed it was because the mouth is used to blow (as in, "blow that candle out"), but that's just an assumption on my part.

    Etymology aside, my hat is off to whomever invented it! (was Eve the first? And will I go straight to hell now?)

    actually that's that i said, the mouth is used for the opposite action of blowing, and job is not used just to get a guy of, but for other stuff as well, like i said paintjob as well as nosejob

    Is it just me or does this remind anyone else of a certain old Saturday Night Live Weekend Update skit? Chevy Chase is the anchorman, doing his on-the-phone-without-realizing-they've-just-gone-live-on-the-air bit. He's supposedly talking to some girl on the phone and, just before he realizes he's on air, the camera catches him telling her, "you're not really supposed to blow on it, it's just an expression."

    I, for one, have been wondering if expressions such as "this blows" or "this sucks" originally had anything to do with sexual situations. I know people don't use it like that, but .... it sounds kind of naughty to me, what with all the blowing and sucking :eyes

    From the mind of a brilliant and lovingly-adored woman?

    Just a guess.
