Oculolinctus.

Eyeball-licking.
"My boyfriend started licking my eyeballs years ago and I just loved it. I'm not with him anymore, but I still like to ask guys to lick my eyeballs. I just love it because it turns me on, like sucking on my toes. It makes me feel all tingly.’...

‘Nothing good can come of this,’ Dr David Granet, a San Diego ophthalmologist, told The Huffington Post. ‘There are ridges on the tongue that can cause a corneal abrasion. And if a person hasn't washed out their mouth, they might put acid from citrus products or spices into the eye.’
I hope Rand Paul weighs in on this.

Nothing sexier than a girlfriend who insists you do the kinky thing some ex-boyfriend used to do.

"As a germ killer, saliva puts mouthwash to shame. Saliva has anti-clumping properties, which discourage bacteria from forming colonies on the teeth and gums. There are salivary proteins that retain their antimicrobial abilities even when they themselves are broken down.... Saliva’s antimicrobial talents explain some of the folk medicine remedies that have been making the rounds since the 1600s. One 1763 treatise advocates applying “the fasting saliva of a man or woman turn’d of seventy or eighty years of age” to syphilitic chancres of the glans penis. As with the ancient Chinese Materia Medica prescription of saliva “applied below arms to counteract fetid perspiration,” one imagines— hopes— that an applicator other than the tongue was employed. “It is a known observation among the vulgar that the saliva is efficacious in cleansing foul wounds, and cicatrizing recent ones, thus dogs by licking their wounds . . . have them heal in a very short time,” wrote the eighteenth-century physician Herman Boerhaave. He was correct. Wounds that would take several weeks to heal on one’s skin disappear in a week inside the mouth. In a 2008 rodent study, animals that licked their wounds healed faster than those that could not (because their salivary glands had been disconnected— a wound, alas, that even saliva cannot heal). More than just disinfecting is going on. Rodent saliva contains nerve growth factor and skin growth factor. Human saliva contains histatins, which speed wound closure independent of their antibacterial action. Dutch researchers watched it happen in the lab. They cultured skin cells, scratched them with a tiny sterile tip, soaked them in the saliva of six different people, and clocked how quickly the wounds healed, as compared to controls. Other components of saliva render viruses— including HIV, the virus that causes AIDS— noninfective in most cases. (Colds and flus aren’t spread by drinking from a sick person’s glass. They’re spread by touching it. One person’s finger leaves virus particles on the glass; the next person’s picks them up and transfers them to the respiratory tract via an eye-rub or nose-pick.)*"

The only other time I came across this was in an early section of Lollita. Possibly I find it creepy due to that or maybe due to the reasonable fear of eye infections.

Didn't licking cause Mike Douglas problems?

Tuesday. Rain. Lake of the Rains. Mamma out shopping. L., I knew, was somewhere quite near. In result of some stealthy maneuvering, I
came across her in her mother's bedroom. Prying her left eye open to get rid of a speck of something. Checked frock. Although I do love that intoxicating brown fragrance of hers, I really think she should wash her hair once in a while. For a moment, we were both in the same warm green bath of the mirror
that reflected the top of a poplar with us in the sky. Held her roughly by the shoulders, then tenderly by the temples, and turned her about. "It's right there," she said. "I can feel it." "Swiss peasant would use the top of
her tongue." "Lick it out?" "Yeth. Shly try?" "Sure," she said. Gently I pressed my quivering sting along her rolling salty eyeball. "Goody-goody,"
she said nictating. "It is gone." "Now the other?" "You dope," she
began, "there is noth--" but here she noticed the pucker of my approaching lips. "Okay," she said cooperatively, and bending toward her warm upturned russet face somber Humbert pressed his mouth to her fluttering eyelid. She
laughed, and brushed past me out of the room. My heart seemed everywhere at once.

Right, exactly. Most deviant sexual behaviors come with health risks. Whodathunkit! Some of them are quite enjoyable, but they come with risks and costs. What's different here?

edutcher said...

I can't believe Ann researched this so... much.

It's not gross, but weird?

Oh, yeah.

PS I thought for a second you guys meant the other Mike Douglas.

drozz said...

eye herpes.

LarsPorsena said...

Not that weird. In eastern Europe how do you think the babas get objects out of children's eyes?

They lick them out.

traditionalguy said...

The great importance of human spit marches on. It is one of the original words that have survived since before history of language began. Without spit how could we ever have evolved?

Spit even helps the baseball pitchers survive hitters whether they are the fittest or not.

We need more spit laws. Maybe Mayor Gloomberg will proclaim one for NYC.

I like having my balls tickled.

Which non-"deviant" sexual behaviors don't come with health risks?

traditionalguy said...

This must qualify as the the oral version of skull fucking someone. I'll have to check the Dictionary of Perversions.Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Of all the places to lick a woman, the eyeball didn't even break into the top 100........and I'm not sure I've ever gotten past 69.

We could have all lived out the rest of our lives to a happy and fulfilled conclusion without knowing that.

I remember this one from CCD and it kind of grossed me out. Why couldn't Jesus have just waved his hands in the air to the same effect?

"esus Heals a Man Born Blind

9 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

6 After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. 7 “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.

8 His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, “Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?” 9 Some claimed that he was.

Others said, “No, he only looks like him.”

But he himself insisted, “I am the man.”

10 “How then were your eyes opened?” they asked.

11 He replied, “The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see.”

12 “Where is this man?” they asked him.

“I don’t know,” he said."

Saliva is also supposed to be good for removing blood stains.

Who doesn't? Common ground, Titus, we've found common ground!

Mary said...

She should ask him to blow in her ear, old school.

Titus said...

I kind of thought all guys like their balls tickled.

I mean really, what's not to love?

coochy coochy coo.

William said...

I don't think this will catch on, but a few years ago who would have believed tats and belly button bling as a mass phenomenon. Every year the world and its inhabitants becomes more and more incomprehensible.

ndspinelli said...

I'll bet my 401k Andy Rooney's wife never licked his eyes.

I mean really, is cunnilingus so passe now?

Hmmm, I always figured you for a salad tossing taint lover with a side of hot carl afterwards. Oh well, what do I know?

Titus said...

I have no idea what you are talkin about Meth.

I am actually kind of vanilla in the sack.

Rabel said...

The 4:58 on the value of saliva may explain why Meadehouse wouldn't give the government a little spit. They were holding out for more than $90.

Titus said...

OK, I just found Hot Carl-sorry I am not into skat.

I enjoy pinching loafs in the lou by myself.

But as far as others shit, no thanks.

tits.

I read this thread, eyeball licking, saliva is a great germ killer, and all that. So I had an idea, I went to the laundromat, because there are lots of girls there, and I asked the prettiest one. I said: "My balls are infected with syphilitic chancres. Would you lick them for me and make them better?"

Good thing I have my own washer and dryer at home....and a first aid kit.

bagoh20 said...

Meth, you really should not let people know that you know what a "hot carl" is. That's not normal. Now fletching - that's mainstream.

Paddy O said...

I hope Rand Paul weighs in on this.

Rand Paul is the new Andy Williams.

"As a germ killer, saliva puts mouthwash to shame."

So I should just fill up an empty mouthwash bottle with spit, and use it instead. Can I sell this spitwash on Amazon? I guess it's actually used spit, so probably better for Ebay.

jr565 said...

So if saliva is good, rahter than licking the eye, why not spit into an eye dropper and then put saliva drops in your eyes.

Oh yeah, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Stop playing coy.

I hope you meant "loo", but if Lou is willing...

I liked the research about saliva.
