Egyptian Autofellatio

The image above comes from an Egyptian papyrus called “The Book of the Dead of Henuttawy”, which dates from the Third Intermediate Period circa 1000 BC. The large upper figure is the God Osiris, who is depicted in ithyphallic form – in other words, with an erect penis. As well as being erect, the God’s penis is shown as being abnormally long.

The smaller figure below Osiris is Geb, the Egyptian God of the Earth. Geb is also shown with an erect and abnormally long penis. Moreover, he is indulging in an act of autofellatio – sucking his own penis.

For clarity, the penises of the two Gods have been highlighted in red in this image. For the original version, and more information about the papyrus, see the British Museum website.

Tantric Art

An animal-headed goddess performing fellatio on the elephant God GaneshaThe Tantric tradition of India and Tibet is much broader in its scope than the subset of Tantric Sexuality taught in the West. While Western Tantra focuses on practical techniques, the Eastern form also uses sexual symbolism for purely meditational purposes. As such, Tantric art often contains imagery that can seem bizarre to Western eyes. This Tibetan-style devotional painting, for example, depicts an animal-headed female deity trampling on two small figures while she menstruates into a bowl they are holding. At the same time, she is balancing the Hindu elephant God Ganesha on her hands and performing fellatio on him – in other words, sucking his penis!

Ecclesiastical Autofellatio

autofellatioWhile explicit sexual imagery is often found in the sacred architecture of other cultures (for example Erotic Indian Temple Sculptures), it is less commonly associated with Christian churches. But it is not absent altogether, particularly from the exterior of ecclesiastical buildings. One image that is fairly common is the Sheela na gig, depicting a naked woman holding open a gaping and exaggeratedly large vulva. Another example is shown in the image here, of a male figure performing an explicit act of autofellatio – in other words, sucking its own penis. This sculpture can be seen on the facade of Cologne Cathedral in Germany, where it is supporting a statue of the 13th century Archbishop Konrad von Hochstaden.
