Suction is a phenomena popularly thought of as an attractive effect, which is incorrect since a mouth do not innately attract matter. things being "sucked" into a mouth is actually being pushed in by the higher pressure air on the outside of the mouth.
Suction, in contrast to gravity, is higly dependent on an atmosphere with some kind of pressure.
Outer space as we know it is a region of constant vacuum and therefore nothing kan suck in it, only be sucked into it. The mouth in this environment must take another approach to magnetize matter; a sexual attraction.
By performing the visual act of sucking, objects with an art historical symbolism is applied and connected to the face in a way that otherwise would be impossible in space.
