Eyeball licking fetish ‘trend’ in Japan

A recent supposed trend in Japan where youths like to ‘show intimacy’ by licking eyeballs.
This stupid trend may have its origin from a music video by the visual-kei band BORN, in which a woman licks the lead singer’s eye.
It also appears to be popular in anime and manga.

Several international newspapers have been reporting about this, too.
However, calling it a ‘trend’ just because a few kids does it is exaggerating and misleading information. It doesn’t mean everyone in Japan do it either.

There’s a lot of bacteria on the human tongue…
You can get a nice eye infection, transmit STD, or even get blind.
