What is the epistemology of this idiom?

Uhh, I assume you mean "etymology". But I don't know.

It means to suck a man's testicles, yes?

<It means to suck a man's testicles, yes? >

To carry out fellatio and cunnilingus.

"give head" is a slang term for oral sex, it's usually used to describe a woman preforming fellatio on a man. Where this term comes from isn't too hard to figure out; In America, it's common to use variations of the phrase "getting some ____", to describe sex. Examples would include, "getting some tail" , "getting a piece of ass". From there it's a simple matter, linguisticaly, to go from "getting head" to "giveing head".
By the way, it doesn't specificaly have any thing to do with testicles, although I can't imagine the recipient of such an act complaining.

I don't understand the origin of this slang term.What is the relationship between head and oral sex? Is it because oral sex is practiced with the mouth which is part of the head?
