With a few exceptions -- Lil Wayne, call us -- male rappers historically have come off as very ungenerous lovers. It's always been, "Hey, eat/suck/gobble/choke on my dick!" with the only promise of reciprocation being, occasionally, the dopey 69 position. (Seriously, if you're doing that, you must be 16.)

Until recently, that is. In the past year, rappers not only have been talking about going down, but bragging about how good they are at it. Here are five of our favorites.

5. "212"

Azealia Banks

Nobody should've been surprised when the feisty Miss Banks casually told the New York Times she was bisexual. In the first 30 seconds or so of her breakout song "212," she warns that your chick wants to cheat with her. When it comes to cunnilingus, she's subtle at first -- "Now she wanna lick my plum in the evening" -- but then decides, why beat around the bush, so to speak? "I guess that cunt getting eaten," she says repeatedly, almost normalizing the last taboo word.

4. "Pu$$y"

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea might not have used Azealia Banks' blunt terminology, but she did write a pretty good how-to manual. "Right, left, back to the middle, head on a swivel," she raps. "Treat that tongue like a bullet." Bonus points for comparing the taste to Skittles, and for not mentioning reciprocating. How does it feel, fellas?

3. "Eat the Pussy"

Ty$ and Joe Moses ft. Reem Riches and TeeCee4800

First of all, Whoop! is the best new mixtape from L.A. rappers you're not listening to, and this song needs an "OG West Coast" remix immediately -- Too $hort, you're up. In any case, its theme is remarkable. For years, we've heard rappers talk of eschewing giving oral sex because it's supposedly gross or emasculating. But Ty$ articulates that giving oral sex is not only enjoyable but the hallmark of a real man ("I'm a n*gga for real/Always eat my meals/Most of these n*ggas be lyin', I'ma lick it for real"). We agree.
