  • Linguist think the sexual connotation of "blow job" evolved from "blowoff," an expression meaning to finish off, to climax, to end. "Blowoff" in this sense is related to "blow off steam," to put an end to a emotionally frustrating experience. When a prostitute gave a client a blow job she was helping him "blow off" the steam of sexual arousal. In the 1930s, street-walkers offered oral sex with the phrase "I'll blow you off." It suggests 'I'll cool you down,' 'I'll release your steam.'

    Some linguists think the term "blow job" evolved gradually from an eighteenth century European name for a prostitute, blower. A popular name for penis at the time was "whorepipe," and it is easy to see how the woman who played the instrument came to be called a "blower." But was the act called a "blow job?" There's no indication of that.

    Today the word is commonplace, uttered as often by women as men.

  • Blow in the sense that you make him blow his sperm on your face or inside your mouth, it is not about the sucking, what matters is that you make him cum.

    Job because it is believed that girls do not have cravings about sucking a guy's penis, unlike we guys who have cravings for sucking a girl's t*ts. So is like they are doing a job for us.

    Hence the term "blowjob".
