I'm assuming the phrase applies to an ass that hasn't been properly prepped and cleaned.

Butt you do you Era.

you definitely don't want to suck ass. sucking ass is the worst. that's why it's used as a pejorative for things that suck ass.

Better question would be, "Why say something 'sucks"?" I mean, think about it, sucking a straw, sucking a lollipop, sucking face, that stuff ain't so bad.

Combined with "ass", I think if you SUCK an ASS, you have a good chance on sucking out a turd. Turd is the same thing as shit, which most people tend to use when something is bad.

I believe it's a truncated/cleaner form of 'sucks dick' or 'sucks cock', which used to be a pretty common phrase.

There used to be a big stigma about eating out someone’s ass. There still is, but I think more people are accepting of it now.
Can’t stop the booty eating renaissance.

AVGN theme. Thats totally the answer. Helps that sucks flows really well into ass, speaking-wise.

I think "sucks dick" and "sucks ass" is probably rooted in homophobia of the 80s/90s before the ass eating revolution.

Which is why we've elevated our tastes and refer to animal dicks. Bestiality is still offensive, after all.

Sucking to me still revolves around shit eating and not booty licking in the sexual sense.

It's usually some body part or another that gets used for emphasis.

That thing sucks ass.
That thing sucks balls.

etc.

I dunno my only contribution is in similar situations I say it suck massive donkey balls/ floppy donkey dick. I think it was something my older bro used to say so I just say that out of habit instead.
