Where does rim job come from?

Before the late 1960s, a rim job was almost exclusively the domain of automotive mechanics: the work of putting new rims onto a car’s wheels. With the rise of the adult film industry in the late 1960–70s, rim job entered the public discourse as an informal term for anilingus.

That more technical word for rim jobanilingus, is recorded in an 1899 translation of Psychopathia Sexualis, a German encyclopedia of sexual terms. Rim job is evidenced by 1970, based on job for “sex act” (e.g., blowjob for oral stimulation of the penis). The rim apparently refers to the shape of the anus—a kind of ring of muscle that acts as the “rim” around the hole.

[Trixie] Mattel’s got a gift for dark, dry humor that’s on vivid display in her one-woman shows such as Ages 3 and Up. As Billboard Pride reported last month, fans mistakenly took that ironic title literally and brought young kids to a show that involves a bit about Mattel giving her father a rim job.
