Oculolinctus is sexual practice focused on licking eyeballs. People who enjoy oculolinctus become aroused by having their own eyeballs licked or licking their partners’ eyeballs. For many people who enjoy it, oculolinctus is a fetish.
The term oculolinctus comes from the Latin words oculus, meaning eye, and linctus, meaning licked.
Oculolinctus is also known colloquially as Worming.
More About Oculolinctus
People who enjoy oculolinctus enjoy the sensation of the practice. They say that having their eyeball licked tickles a little, but in a pleasurable way, much like having their toes licked.
Oculolinctus is considered a fringe sexual practice, although it did feature in a music video by a Japanese band called Born. Following this, reports circulated suggesting the practice was growing popular among Japanese teenagers who viewed it as the new second base. The news reports claimed as the popularity of oculolinctus spread, so did the rate of eye infections in Japan. However, these reports were untrue.
While the news reports were unfounded, practicing oculolinctus does carry a risk of eye infections. That’s because tongues are coated with millions of microorganisms which can cause a myriad of infections, including chlamydia, herpes, and conjunctivitis. As tongues are rough, you may also cause corneal abrasions or ulcers when you lick someone’s eyeball. The risk of infection is even greater when scratches occur, as these provide pathways for germs. Eye infections can cause styes and even blindness. Unlike many sexual practices, there is no safe way to engage in oculolinctus.
