Eyeball Licking Fetish Causing Pink Eye Outbreak In Japan

| by

A new sexual fetish sweeping across Japan has led to an outbreak of pink eye in schools, unofficially called "oculolinctus,"

Fans of the fetish become sexually aroused by licking their partner's eyeballs or having their own eyeballs licked. Authorities first became aware that something was going on when kids began showing up at school wearing eye patches.

Pink eye is caused by bacteria getting into the eye, causing the eye to become irritated, red and swollen, so it is no surprise that eyeball licking ended up causing issues.

According to a teacher, almost one-third of sixth grade students have tried eyeball licking.

“When I looked inside, a male pupil and a female pupil had their faces close together and were kind of fumbling around," the teacher said. "‘Could it be bullying?’ I wondered, but when I had a good look, the boy was licking the girl’s eye.”

Eyeball licking is considered to be the new “second base,” according to The Daily Caller.
