A new form of “peeper porn” has taken Japan by storm, causing pinkeye.

We file this post in the ultimate yuck department!

When we were younger, we often did strange things to show our crushes how much we liked them. In elementary school, it was pushing each other down on the playground or teasing one another, in middle school it often involved secretive locker notes and hand holding. While these little actions may seem silly and childish to us now, they were always harmless enough back then.

However, a strange form of affection has recently taken Japan by storm and is sending many children home with dangerous cases of extreme pinkeye, all because of a new eyeball licking trend.

This eyeball licking that has becoming popular in Japanese primary schools is a strange erotic activity that actually involves participants putting each other’s tongues on each other’s eyeball. This activity―also commonly referred to as “oculolinctus” or “worming” is said to be an intimate act by those involved, and is sought after as a particular type of fetish.

In fact, searching for eyeball licking on YouTube brings up hundreds of different videos from “worming lovers” who are looking to share this unique form of “peeper porn” with others around the web. These particular type of videos even go back as far as mid-2000s.

So, what is the big deal about eyeball licking, other than the fact that it may be a little outside of the norm? This dangerous form of affection carries with it many forms of eye infections that are causing a massive pinkeye outbreak throughout Japan.

News reports by the Daily Caller found that reports of elementary school students in Japan who had been participating in these ocular activities had reported multiple cases of pinkeye (or conjunctivitis). In fact, the outbreak had gotten so bad that many school children were starting to show up to class wearing eye patches to help prevent the condition from spreading to their fellow classmates.

As any parent or school teacher will tell you, pinkeye is one of the most viral vision problems to affect the classroom. Common symptoms often include a watery discharge that is not green or yellow in color, but is similar to the type of discharge you would expect during sinus congestion or a runny nose. Often times the eyelids will also swell up and you will see a large amount of pink within the eye.

Luckily pinkeye can usually be treated with eye drops or a simple antibiotic, but any children who are participating in “worming” or eyeball licking should be brought to their ophthalmologist right away to make sure there is not a further infection of the cornea.

How do you feel about this new form of peeper porn that is taking Japanese schools by storm? Do you think that pinkeye via eyeball licking is something that we will have to worry about coming to the United States? Be sure to share your thoughts and comments below!
