  • Maybe he actually likes the taste. I am sure he is probably very embarrassed by it since he denies it when he's caught and doesn't do it out in the open when you are watching. Honestly, I don't think there is anything you can do. But I wouldn't make fun of him for it, he is probably already upset about you knowing.

  • Stop kissing him, and then when he asks why you don't kiss him anymore... tell him! thats just sick and he need to grow up and stop that!

  • I think as gross as it is, it's got to be some sort of a compulsive thing... some bad habit like biting your nails that you just can't stop, even tho you know there's small pieces of feces and urine, and who knows what else under there, but you just can't stop.
    I couldn't kiss a person that chews their nails for that reason... I'd just be upfront and tell him I can't do it and why. I stopped kissing my hubby when I saw him share a cup with someone (one rinsed it out and the other used it and they apparently did this every day).
