Today in Sex: Beware, The One-Eye Can Give You Pink Eye

Who doesn't enjoy a nice facial? I mean, what's sex without a facefull of jizz, amirite? Well, next time your best guy gets ready to unload make sure you either squeeze your peepers shut tight or strap on a pair of goggles, because apparently the one-eye can give you pink eye.

I was always under the impression that pink eye was its own special condition--like hemorrhoids. But according to the Guardian, "It's a catch-all description for inflammation of the conjunctiva, the membranes that line the eyelid and the surface of the eye."

What doctors are discovering is that some cases of pink eye are actually chlamydia of the eyeball. "The doctors finger the bacterium chlamydia trachomatis as the likely culprit in as many as 9% of the severe conjunctivitis cases seen by casualty departments." [High-five for using "finger" as a verb!]

And where the medical profession used to assume the disease was transferred by someone rubbing their eye with a jizzy finger, they're now discovering that it's more likely to have been caused by a direct spurt of baby-batter to the eye. Ouchie!

The doctors dryly concluded that this eye-rubbing scenario will probably continue to be the more common diagnosis because, "It is likely", they write, "that this mode of transmission is underestimated, as a history of ejaculation into the conjunctiva is not normally asked for."

Pfft. Speak for yourself.
