comment Is there a word that describes disliking a food or drink after vomiting it?
This is a nice alternative answer to taste aversion but surfeit is more like eating too much, to the point of sickness and disgust. You can eat the same food later. However, surfeit might induce taste aversion.

Also related is poison shyness. It is a learned aversion to toxic substances but for humans, it can also include a learned aversion to distinctive foods that induce vomiting/nausea.

comment Why is oral sex considered sex, given that no intercourse is involved?
It is hard to find out where this question belongs to. Maybe "philosophy of sex". Try meta section of philosophy stackexchange and ask if these kind of questions are appropriate to ask on philosophy stackexchange. You might need to include more details in the question also.

comment What's a good adjective or phrase to describe your feeling when confronted with absurdity?
Actually, it is one of the ways of controlling and managing anger. For example, this sentence is from a publication about anger from Nebraska University: "Laugh at yourself. When you feel angry, take your annoyances to a ridiculous extreme until you laugh at their absurdity. Laughter not only banishes negative emotions, it’s relaxing."
