'Eyeball licking' trend giving Japanese kids pink eye Published: June 13, 2013

A Japanese website has finally exposed the real reason why so many Japanese kids have been showing up at school wearing eye patches: They've contracted pink eye after engaging in the intimate act known as "eyeball licking," reports Gawker.

Which is exactly what it sounds like: One person spreads their eyelids wide, inviting the other person to lick their eyeball.

The practice — also known as "worming" or "oculolinctus" — has apparently led to rash of pink eye (conjunctivitis) cases in Japanese elementary and middle schools.
