“Hard Cell” the “Terrence Higgins Website” discusses felching at : http://www.hardcell.org.uk/playroom12.htm
The site describes felching as sucking (usually your own) semen out of someone’s rectum, possibly with a straw. It may then include passing the “spunk” from mouth to mouth.
Suggested reasons for thw attraction of the practice include being drawn towards tasting or swallowing semen (our own or others), it can mean taking into the body something seen as valued and potent.
Felching can also signify the end of the sex act. This meaning is even stronger if the semen has been inside the other man as it’s a strong sign of two men joining together in a very intimate, ‘no limits’ way.
Felching Among Men Who Engage in Barebacking (Unprotected Anal Sex).
Kensington Research Institute, 401 Schuyler Road, Silver Spring, MD, 20910, USA, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Felching (sucking or eating semen out of someone’s anus) is a sexual behavior about which virtually nothing has been written in the scholarly literature, despite the fact that it appears to be a not-uncommon practice among certain subpopulations of men who have sex with men (MSM). This study examined three broad research questions: (1) How common is felching? (2) How does a desire for felching relate to other HIV risk practices and risk behavior preferences? (3) What factors are associated with the desire to engage in felching? The data were from a content analysis study of one of the largest Internet websites specifically targeting MSM looking for partners for unprotected sex. A total of 1,316 profiles on the site were analyzed and selected randomly based on users’ ZIP codes. Felching was mentioned as a sought-after practice in approximately one-sixth of the men’s profiles. Men who wanted to find felching partners were significantly more likely than those not searching for felching partners to seek other types of risky sex, including unprotected oral and unprotected anal sex, and various enhanced risk preferences (e.g., having sex while high, multiple-partner sex, unwillingness to withdraw the penis prior to internal ejaculation). Multivariate analysis revealed several factors that were related to an interest in identifying partners online for felching, including race/ethnicity, indifference to sex partners’ HIV serostatus, several sensation-seeking measures (e.g., wanting “wild” or “uninhibited” sex, self-identification as a “bug chaser”), and eroticizing ejaculatory fluids.

Christian registrar loses gay wedding appeal
LONDON | Tue Dec 15, 2009 12:32pm GMT
LONDON (Reuters) – A Christian registrar who was threatened with the sack after refusing to carry out gay weddings “as a matter of religious conscience” has lost an appeal against discrimination.
Lillian Ladele, who became a registrar in 2002, claims she was bullied and harassed by Islington council in north London as a result of her stance.
She was backed by Christian groups but opposed by gay rights campaigners.
In July last year, an employment tribunal found that the council had unlawfully discriminated against her, but the ruling was overturned by the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) which said there was no basis for concluding that any discrimination had been established.
Ladele then took her case to appeal.
Last month, her counsel, James Dingemans, told three Appeal Court judges that she had never wanted to undermine the human rights or respect due to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender communities.
But human rights laws must also be there to protect people with committed views about marriage, he said.
“She believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman for life to the exclusion of all others.
“Modern human rights jurisprudence was not intended to obliterate religious beliefs held for millennia,” he added.
But the Appeal court dismissed her case, the Press Association reported on Tuesday.
Master of the Rolls, Lord Neuberger, said: “The legislature has decided that the requirements of a modern liberal democracy … include outlawing discrimination in the provision of goods, facilities and services on grounds of sexual orientation, subject only to very limited exceptions.”
