I have been wondering the origin of the term "tossing the salad". I tend to believe it came to be in the mid-90's from an HBO special/documentary about prison life. In this particular episode an inmate said that those who like to lick anothers anus is 'tossing the salad'. It seemed after this show many were using this phrase. I never heard it before that. I remember at work co-workers would say to one another if you like to toss the salad. When the person didn't know what this meant it was explained to them. Somehow the conversation would go back to that show.
The phrase has been used,since the mid 90's, in films and comedy acts so it is now part of the lexicon.
I guess I could always go to Wordorigin.com and check there if no one knows it here.

I think that you are right. I have also heard that it is a term for the licking of an individual's anus.

So, why is it called a "tossed salad" when it (supposedly) tastes nothing at all like salad or salad dressing? Not that I'd ever try it. Eeeew.

I really want to say something here, but I better not. Oh wait, maybe I've already said too much.

Anyhow back to the OP I have never understood that term. I don't know how that act got named "tossing the salad." It makes no sense to me either.

I always thought about that too. I assume the hairy ass could be construed as a 'salad'. This is why "tossing the salad" usually refers to doing it to another man. It is usally a gay act then a woman doing to a man or a man to a woman. Because I believe the term may have orginated from that HBO special is why it refers to two men.

I remember years ago reading in a mens magazine a term for analingus was called "cleaning the kitchen". I have never heard that phrase used since. Diffrent folks I bring it up to never heard it either. Possibly the magazine coined it on the spot. I do remember telling my boss at this restaurant I worked at what "cleaning the kitchen meant. He was fascinated with it. When this pretty waitress was leaving for the day he asked her if she was going to clean the kitchen when she got home. She quickly chimed "I love to clean the kitchen especially with my mom"( [Razz] ). We were hysterical! I don't recall if we ever told this poor girl what it meant.

I never saw the original HBO special, but Chris Rock did a bit on it in his act.

He quoted the Tossed Salad Man: "havin' your asshole eaten out with jelly or syrup."

I had heard of a rimjob prior, but I think that was the first time I heard of a Tossed Salad.

Maybe just regular ass-licking is a rimjob, while the jelly and syrup makes it a tossed salad, because it's like adding salad dressing to a salad?
