Oculolinctus is the latest sex play technique to alarm doctors and prudes everywhere. From Medical News Today:
Eyeball-licking fetishism, also known as “oculolinctus” or “worming”, has become a popular way of expressing affection or inciting sexual arousal in Japan. Doctors warn that it is linked to a serious risk of virus conjunctivitis, other eye infections, and even blindness
According to the Japanese website Naver Matome, the oculolinctus craze in the country among young lovers has resulted in a significant increase in eye-infection cases.
Naver Matome first reported on eyeball-licking when a Japanese school noticed that children were coming into class wearing eye patches. Apparently, one third of all the twelve-year-old children at the school had engaged in oculolinctus.
According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the oculolinctus trend was inspired by a Japanese emo band “Born” in a music video.
When the tongue makes contact with the eye, it is exposed to all kinds of infections and eye damage.
