PHOTOS: This Behavior At Gay Bars Absolutely Needs To Stop

by Graham Gremore August 27, 2016


There’s something we need to get off our chests. It’s about this growing practice of people in bars and clubs sticking out their tongues and/or licking each other’s faces on camera. Seriously, WTF?

You’re probably thinking: Do people really do that? The answer is: YES. They do! ALL the time. And we have galleries and galleries of images to prove it. The world over, people who would normally be attractive are voluntarily choosing to uglify themselves by extending their tongues as far out of their mouths as they possibly can.


We asked Jake Myers, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Los Angeles, what he thought about this unsettling trend.

“It’s a universal phenomena for many to want to stick out their tongue or lick someone’s face for a photo when at a bar,” Myers explains. “From a psychological perspective, many people find a ‘safety’ from being goofy in a moment that might otherwise be vulnerable for them.”

Myers continues, “Being at a bar can often bring up insecurities. Being ‘silly’ with one’s tongue, even if one is doing it unconsciously, can create a mask to hide behind. Especially if a moment is about to be captured digitally, wearing that mask protects one from a potentially intimate moment. At times, however, it can also just be a way to prove to yourself and others, ‘look, I’m having fun!”

Don’t believe this whole tongue/facing licking thing is a problem? Scroll down and see for yourselves…
