Etymology 2[edit]

Calque of French soixante-neuf,[1] from the rotational symmetry of the numeral 69 — if rotated a half-turn (by 180°), the numeral remains the same, and a couple both giving oral sex at once have, in principle, a similar rotational symmetry.

Noun[edit]

sixty-nine (countable and uncountable, plural sixty-nines)

  1. (sexuality) A sex position where two people give each other oral sex at the same time.
