Eyeball-Licking Trend in Japan is Spreading Disease, Should it be Stopped?

A new trend has swept the youth of Japan. It's not a game, electronic device, or even item of clothing. It's an activity called 'worming'. Worming is, to put it simply, licking a person's eyeball. Why this is a trend I don't really know, but medical professionals are warning that it is likely to spread pink eye and other eye-related diseases throughout the country.

eyeball  licking  worming

The craze may have stemmed from a recent music video called "Spiral Eye" by the Japanese band, Born. The video features the act of worming, and I guess a lot of kids thought that if their musical heroes were doing it that they should too? This is obviously not an activity for everyone, but there must be something fun about it. How else would it have swept the nation? Do you think this activity is too weird, even for Japan? Should it be stopped, or disregarded as a simple fad that will go away as soon as a new band does a new crazy thing with their body?

    Obviously trying to regulate or legislate it is absurd. It will die out soon enough. People lick each other in lots of places and I don't hear anyone whining about it. This is none of your business or mine. Get a life you weirdos.

    Licking the wrong set of balls can lead to conjunctivitis and or ocular chlamydia. I can't see any upside to 'worming' and there are a hole lot of better places for an adventurous tongue!

    Like many other trends, it'll stop and create a new, horrible one. Personally, if someone tried to lick my eyeball, they are going to get slapped.

    As disgusting as this practice may be, sex causes a lot more serious health problems. If you are going to outlaw a practice because of it's disease production factor - sex should definately be outlawed.

    And in kicks nanny state mentality! If two consenting people want to give each other an eye infection, let them get on with it! We cannot save people from themselves, so why try? All that can be done is keep people informed of the risks and hope they find another way to get their rocks off.

    THat's absolutely disgusting to begin with; parents need to stop their kids, but the government should have nothing to do with it

    yes tell the parents to crack down on it...just like they told the parents to crack down on underage sex...well, that turned out well.

  • Classified bob 2013/07/12 07:21:59 (edited)

    And I'm agreeing that the gov. has not place in it but saying that parenting is ineffective most effective way is make them learn the hard way. A case or two of horrible pink eye will make them think twice.

    Yes that is very true they need to learn from mistakes; just like the kids who think drugs are cool; when they get their 1st whiff they never want to take a 2nd and then they end up in jail lesson learn with a built in punishment, but eye licking won't send you to jail it will give you a negative feedback that's for sure swollen itchy eyes that burn like hell fire that's worse than prison
  • Classified bob 2013/07/12 07:28:04

    Exactly so it should be more effective at making eye lickers stop than prison is for drug addicts...because most drug addicts don't recover they just die.

    Notice the question is should it be stopped not should they not do it. Too often people make these things synonymous. If weird people want to lick other consenting peoples eyeballs...then go for it. I'm sure after a nasty case of pink eye they won't do it again.

    If they want the freedom to lick, so be it, to their loss. But they need to understand the virus in the nose, in the snot, that comes down on the tongue, is a beast. They need to do their home work.
