    As well as having a sexual connotation, "Deep Throat" was the codename given to the person who leaked information to the Washington Post over the Watergate affair, eventually bringing down the Nixon administration in the 1970s. Thus the reference to "sneak" (or snitch, grass, informer, etc.). As Sherekhan says, it's usually translated literally as "Garganta Profunda" in Spanish.

    Esto de Wikipedia:

    Vanity Fair magazine revealed that Deputy Director of the FBI William Mark Felt, Sr. was Deep Throat on May 31, 2005 when it published an article (eventually appearing in the July issue of the magazine) on its website by John D. O'Connor, an attorney acting on Felt's behalf, in which Felt reportedly said, "I'm the guy they used to call Deep Throat." After the Vanity Fair story broke, Woodward, Bernstein, and Benjamin C. Bradlee, the key editor of the Washington Post during Watergate, confirmed that Felt was Deep Throat.

    Howard Simons, the managing editor of the Washington Post during the Watergate scandal, dubbed the secret informant "Deep Throat" as an allusion to the notorious pornographic movie of the same name.

    I'd be careful when referring to Garganta Profunda in Spain. The codename given to the Watergate informant is not widely known.

    However, a porn film which carries the same name is.

    If you don't want to end with (something you'd rather not have) stuck deep into your throat, you'd better keep your mouth firmly shut.
