What even is Oculolinctus?
We've all had that lust—or even love at first sight moment when we couldn't keep our eyes off the man or woman of our dreams.
We imagined staring into one another's eyes, batting our eyelashes in mild flirtation, and watching every move the other made. For the majority of us, that's as far as the “eye" thing goes.
Not so for those who are turned on by oculolinctus, AKA “worming."
What is this oculolinctus (and how the heck do you pronounce it) you may wonder? According to Daily Star, it's a weird sexual fetish where erotic pleasure is derived from licking someone's eyeball!
And I am grossed out by the thought of putting in a contact lens.
According to Wikipedia, the fetish became super sexy in Japan in 2013 where the practice was called “eyeball licking play." Lots of teens got in on the action, and not surprisingly, there was a rise in eye infections including conjunctivitis, pinkeye, and chlamydia. Well, at least there was no chance of teen pregnancy.
While what's hot for some is not for others, I cannot “see" how this practice could possibly be sensual or arousing in any way. Is it the hot breath coming towards your peepers? Or the chance of the removal of eye “boogers" that gets the juices flowing? Maybe it's a way to cut down on eye makeup remover cloths spend. But to each his or her own, and if “worming" is on the sexual menu, lick away.
So the next time you're looking to spice up your sexual repertoire, perhaps oculolinctus could be introduced to your partner. Just steer clear from jalapeno peppers before you make your move or you're bound to get the evil eye.
Have you or would you try this eye-popping sexual fetish? I'm blinking twice for “hell NO!"
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
We know Ellis Ross is fun and has an offbeat style, but her hairstyle felt like a caricature, and one that was completely unnecessary because there are Black women who have the kind of hair she seemed to be trying to mimic.
Black hair is political.
It is still a radical act for Black people to wear our hair just as it grows out of our heads.
Just as Black people are diverse, Black hair is inclusive of a broad range of colors, textures, density, and porosity. Terms like 3B and 4C are commonly used to describe hair types. While some people still think of hair types as a grading scheme, much like the debate about having "good hair," we are learning more about how hair types have specific care needs. As we grow deeper in love with ourselves and our hair, Black people are looking for the best products on the market and are committed to supporting Black businesses.
When Tracee Ellis Ross announced the launch of Pattern Beauty, there was a lot of buzz and excitement. A Black woman we love and whose hair has always been an unapologetically overwhelming feature was going to respond to Black hair care needs. Sign us up! Now, however, with her Elle magazine cover, some Black women are wondering if Ross is taking up too much of the Black hair space.
