Word Origin & History

cocksucker
by 1940s, Amer.Eng., from cock (n.1) in phallic sense + sucker. Used curiously for aggressively obnoxious men; the ancients would have understood the difference between passive and active roles; Catullus, writing of his boss, employs the useful L. insult irrumator, which means
"someone who forces others to give him oral sex," hence "one who treats people with contempt."
