Most laws in the Torah were created for an actual physical purpose, and not simply because "God said so". The Kosher laws, for example, exist because eating shellfish, pigs, or meat with cheese, were all very unhealthy practices back when Leviticus was written. There's a reason only Orthodox Jews follow these laws now: Because Christians and Non-Orthodox Jews have realized that those eating practices are no longer unhealthy.
The idea that the oral sex laws in the Torah were created as a form of opposition against some sort of Pagan practice makes a fair deal of sense.
There are still reasons, my friend. I've read up on them. believe me or not. Do what you want though...
I thought the civilised world consisted almost exclusively of secular states in which it's up to the individual to determine how to go about religious beliefs, not the state's role to define how those oughta look?

wow you resurrected this thread to say that?
mind explaining? i mean, the opening post actually wasn't about if you're fine with it or not. it actually wanted to know about why guys seem less accepting of giving oral.
share your thoughts lest this thread-romancy be in vain!
EDIT: well given your sexuality, I'm not sure you CAN answer that... we're mostly dealing with guys giving to females, but at any rate, share your thoughts!

Dr. Sadie Allison (she writes some great books on sex - check them out) has a saying that I think should be taught to guys in highschool: "Do others as you would have them do you."
If you expect, want, or receive oral from your partner, then you should give oral back, if they're amenable to it. Plain and simple. The same goes for anything else sexual in any way. Sex is a reciprocal thing, and it only gets better if both people involved understand and embrace that fact.
And slightly off-topic, but I mentioned sex books. It's always struck me as odd - people are willing to learn and read about all sorts of things, but when it comes to sex, which plays a large role in everyone's lives... most people cease to learn. They go through the discovery stages, then stop. And stagnate. Or slowly, slowly progress through their own explorations. I think it's important to go through the discovery and exploratory stages on your own steam, especially if both partners are in their first sexual relationship, but once they reach that plateau, buying a book like Ride'em Cowgirl or whatever is more than worth the 7 bucks you spend. You'll learn a lot about how it all works, learn about some interesting techniques, get introduced to some positions that most people will never appreciate on their own or learn from porn, and just in general get better at sex. And that can only be a good thing.
