Would you? That's the question of the day. Even if I was dared and paid a large sum of money, I don't think I will lick someone's eyeball for the reason that, it is unhygienic and can possibly render that person blind.

Well, this eyeball licking or oculolinctus or worming is becoming a trend in the younger Japanese generation. Videos of such practice has appeared in Youtube done by Japanese teens to show their love or affection. It has also cause the spread of germs or bacteria in the licked person's eyes.  This practice has also caused the surge of pink eye or infection to the most sterile part of the human anatomy.

Japan is known for it's unique and often time outlandish practices and trends but this tops the weird-o-meter!

Licking an eyeball can cause a lot of health issues such as introduction of bacteria and small food particles to the eyes which can scrape the cornea, the person becomes susceptible to conjunctivitis, permanent scarring of the cornea and it's just plan gross!

You can show your love in many ways imaginable but this one is just way too freaky. Stick to holding hands and kissing instead.
