The Dangers of Eyeball Licking

eye-ball licking

Eyeball licking is a dangerous fetish that is gaining popularity in Japan.

A strange craze is sweeping Japan.

Eyeball licking is a new fetish, as well as pass-time for adolescents in the island nation. This trend is a dangerous one, the growing popularity of eyeball licking has resulted in an increasing pink eye problem.

Around since the mid 2000s, the act itself is nothing new. Concerning to doctors however is the growing popularity of this form of ocular erotics among preteens.

Also referred to as “worming” or “oculolinctus” this sexual act is exactly what it sounds like. Participants actually place their tongue on their partner’s eyeball and lick it. Pink eye is common from this act, although those who practice it say it is extremely intimate and erotic.

Elementary school staff in Japan became aware of the craze after a plethora of students began to show up to school wearing eye patches. These students exemplify the dangers of eyeball licking, commonly having pink eye or another form of infection. Extreme cases have even developed blindness as a result of testing their ocular boundaries.

In a poll of students at the Japanese elementary school that first discovered the craze emerging in the preteen population, one third of students admitted to utilizing the technique in their romantic encounters. Despite the dangers of eyeball licking, the trend is one that the kids enjoy enough to take the risk, making this problem a tough one to contain.

Dr. David Granet warned the Huffington Post that “Nothing good can come of this. There are ridges on the tongue that can cause a corneal abrasion. And if a person hasn’t washed out their mouth, they might put acid from citrus products or spices into the eye.”

He also added another warning that ”The cornea is very sensitive and could be scarred,” as a result of the ridges on the tongue scraping it.

Sexually  transmitted diseases can also be passed on through licking eyes.

If the person doing the licking has a virus such as herpes for instance, the odds of transmission to the person being licked are very high.

Alarmingly the trend has not been limited to the island of Japan. In an interview with the Huffington Post, 29 year old Elektrika Energias of the Virgin Islands, said she has been licking eyes with her boyfriend for years. Asked about why she continues the practice despite the medical risks, she answered “I still like to ask guys to lick my eyeballs. I just love it because it turns me on, like sucking on my toes. It makes me feel all tingly.”

Energias said that she doesn’t let just anyone share in the act with her, explaining that she saves such intimacies for partners she has strong feelings for, she stated that ”I don’t ask just anyone to do it. Guys I like a lot are more likely to not think it’s so weird. I’ve never had anyone turn me down though.”

This fetish has a growing popularity, and is spreading from Japan to the rest of the world.

Eyeball licking is a dangerous act that can result in exposure to many health ailments, ranging from pink eye to blindness. Popularity is growing especially in the preteen demographic which is looking to push its romantic encounters to the limit, often engaging in “worming” as a result.
