Etymologies

From the resemblance of the figure 69 to the position assumed by the two people.
(American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)
From the rotational symmetry of the numeral 69 – if rotated a half-turn (by 180°), the numeral remains the same, and a couple both giving oral sex at once have, in principle, a similar rotational symmetry. (Wiktionary)
