Eyeball Licking: What The HELL?!?!

Jun 19, 13 Eyeball Licking: What The HELL?!?!

I don’t often indulge in ‘Young People’ activities as much as my peers would like me to. In fact, I make it a personal mission of mine to stray as far away from teenagers and young adults at the bonfire as I can possibly muster, but that doesn’t keep me safe from the millions of others that I will unknowingly interact with. Health is an important part of life to me; so much so that I nearly vomit every morning in an effort to scrub my tongue of bacteria and gingivitis. I don’t walk any farther than five steps before blinking, and I’ve created a numerical value system out of the English alphabet to keep myself occupied.

I’m very particular about my day-to-day habits before anything.

My ADHD tendencies even transpire to how I approach women. For most men, speaking to women and/or letting them know the nature of their attraction is imperative to making friends, having a girlfriend and, of course, getting laid. But I draw the line when it comes to overtly creepy acts of affection, the likes of which can lead to some serious health risks and death.

Michael Harper, a writer right here at redOrbit, might feel the same way in a report on a disgusting and fashionable new trend that has somehow boomed in Japan; eyeball licking.

Feel free to step away from your screen in disgust at any time.

Teenagers and young adults in Japan are surprising schools and faculty with a startling new way to show how much they like each other. Licking one’s eyeball actually can lead to an intense form of orgasmic pleasure due to the eyeball’s large number of nerve endings. Unfortunately, the licking of the eyeball can also lead to very bad infections and pink eye. Among these lies the danger of scratching the cornea in ways that can lead to a blinding ulcer.

But, apart from the health negatives, what does this say about how modern males and females interact in romantic ways. In the article, Harper discusses the Mr. Y, a schoolteacher who just so happened to walk in on a boy and girl in the sixth grade licking each other’s eyeballs. After some questioning of students in other classes, Mr. Y concluded that over a third of the students asked about this confirmed that they do engage in the act.

I can’t remember a time when I wanted to lick any article of a women’s body unless I was given permission. Kissing and holding hands are both one of the most common ways to show your spouse and/or girlfriend that you love them. Naturally, these methods of affection can stretch out to be anything; anal sex, oral sex, and various other sexual positions that I can’t pronounce let alone spell. Other than sexual implication, there is no other way for me to see it.

Years ago Seth McFarlane implied that ear sex was the next big trend for teenagers and young adults to go wild with. He was joking, but the idea really got me thinking about what the general norm for affection will be when I have kids and they’ve become teenagers. No, I don’t think my future daughter will want other boys to stick their penis in her ear.

Instead, I’d like to think that society would have grown more tolerant to things that we consider outrageous. Yes, eyeball licking is disgusting and unsanitary. Not to mention it can lead to problems like blindness and pink eye. But, is this how older men and women are showing their affection today?

Let me know what you think.
