What’s The Big Deal About A Little Jizz On The Lips?

By the time we learned about Lena Chen’s post-facial photo, much of the internet had already said its piece. The angry and outraged had been cried out against her, the sex positive spoke in her favor, and more than a few bloggers overanalyzed the whole thing.

Yet we’re still wondering — well, really, what’s the big deal? Chen is known for writing (and writing graphically) about sex; from refusing to shy away from discussions of a taboo nature; given all that, why, exactly, is this photo such a shock?

Is it simply that it’s a photo, and thus more visually arresting, harder to ignore? Or would a similar text post, one celebrating the joys of jizz on the lips, have set off a similar debate?

And regardless: when will we start to realize that, yes, (some) ladies like a little man juice on the lips and that — more to the point — that really shouldn’t matter?

    Indeed. Good grief, some people have too much time on their hands.

    I saw this on Sexerati as well.

    What struck me wasn’t the cum (that’s what she…sorry) it was the look in her eyes. For some reason I read disquiet in her expression, perhaps even fear.

    Whether or not she enjoys the experience is almost secondary to that initial read of something being off with her gaze.

    Speaking as a guy, I find nothing appealing about cumming on my partners face. I’ve been with girls who found it appealing, mostly on a primal “Yeah, mark me” sort of way, but I just find it messy. I’m a pris I guess.

    Garrett:

    Fleshbot recently did a poll asking people to state their gender and feelings on facials. The results are interesting.

  • Lilithe says :

    Now that I know who she is, it’s not disturbing, but when I first saw it on somebody’s tumblr, I though she was like, 10 years old!

    But the title of this article is a tad misleading. “What’s The Big Deal About A Little Jizz On The Lips?” – maybe should say “you are fluid bonded with”? I have a host of reasons why jizz on the lips can be a problem with a person with undisclosed or not obvious STIs!

  • Lux Alptraum says :

    Lilithe: Fair point. We’d never suggest getting a facial from someone who’s STI status you weren’t sure about. But that title would have been too long!

  • Thomas says :

    What made it difficult for me was the description that it was followed by a kiss on the lips.

    That tells me that it wasn’t just sex, there was genuine (if fleeting) affection involved- and that made me feel like a creepy voyeur for looking.

  • Lena Chen at marilink&hellip says :

    [...] haber recortado la foto, dejando sólo la parte de la cara donde no había semen. A raíz de eso, Boinkology debatía si el semen era SFW (safe for work) o publicable en primera [...]

  • badinfluencegirl says :

    it’s that she looks ten and she’s looking UP at the camera as though the photog was taller or bigger or older than she.

    the initial shot (seen here, today, for the first time) implied to me that it was a pedophiliac shot… the ensuing article clarified.

    methinks it’s that… but hey that’s just my opinion

  • A says :

    i gotta agree with the commenters that referenced the fact that she looks both VERY underage and a bit scared as reasons why it was disturbing

  • Lux Alptraum says :

    The underage argument is all well and good, except for the fact that Gawker, when declaring this “the worst overshare ever” knew damn well that Lena Chen was overage and consenting. That wasn’t their issue.
