Not to get too far off the track, but what the hell do you all think the expression "sucks" means? You hear it all the time nowadays. This sucks. That sucks. You suck. I suck. He sucks. She sucks. Everything sucks. It means "sucks cock" and don't try to tell me anything different. It might be in the mainstream but don't piss on my head and tell me it's raining. Both expressions are indeed vulgar in their origin regardless of how much they are watered down by popular usage.
What you hear nowdays doesn't always mean that's where it started or meant when it started.

Case in point, the "that sucks" you hear today probably started/came from "sucks to be you" from the turn of the Century. Probably not sexual at all.
