Inspired by a recent thread where somebody essentially said their local weather sucks. And a warning that this post (and undoubtedly the resulting thread) will contain some crude language.
There are obviously exceptions but I think it’s safe to say the consensus is that receiving oral sex is good. So why do we use it as a metaphor to say something is bad?
Let’s use football as an example. As a Bills fan, I would say yesterday’s game really sucked in order to express how much I disliked it. But wouldn’t it make more sense for a Packers fan to be saying yesterday’s game really sucked in order to express how much they enjoyed it?
Do other languages use this metaphor? If so, does it have a positive or negative meaning?
