Chus Martinez On The Eyeball-Licking Fetish

Oculolinctus, also known as “worming” or eyeball-licking fetish, is the paraphilic practice of licking eyeballs for erotic gratification. According to recent and erroneous media reports, the practice became popular in Japan earlier this year, where it is referred to as “Gankyū name purei”. Videos featuring this fetish have been posted on websites such as YouTube for at least seven years, and until now hadn’t attracted much attention beyond a small core audience with an interest in this particular form of fetishism.

While the practice definitely exists, its alleged popularity among Japanese teenagers is a hoax based on a titillating story that originated on a youth culture website. Under the attention grabbling headline of “The perverted play of eyeball-licking is a hit among primary schoolers” (“Shogakusei ni gankyuname hentai purei ga dairyuukou” in the original Japanese), the piece was first posted on Bucchi News on 7 June 2013. The fake story was picked up by other sites, and spread quickly in a variety of languages, and within couple of weeks it had been featured by supposedly reputable English language news media outlets including The Guardian and ABC News.

Those who have fallen for the hoax write that worming became popular among Japanese teens in 2013, and has caused a significant rise in eye infections! LOL! The Guardian reported that eyeball-licking was “the thing you graduate to when kissing gets boring”, and that it had become popular after it was featured in a music video by Born, a Japanese emo band. Other reports featured stock pictures of Japanese schoolchildren wearing eye-patches allegedly because they’d caught conjunctivitis after allowing themselves to be wormed.

The worming sensation has been described as akin to toe-sucking (but in my opinion it is not quite as much fun as this other fetish). The high number of nerve-endings in the cornea make eyeballs extremely sensitive. However, there are health risks associated with the practice because the tongue is coated with a film of micro-organisms, which can potentially cause eye infections, including conjunctivitis and chlamydia. There are also slight risks of corneal abrasion and ulcers.

Closing the eyelids when having the eyeball licked reduces the health risks associated with worming but doesn’t entirely eliminate them. It also lowers the level of sensation experienced by the partner who is having their eyeball licked.
