Why do we bite our tongue when we eat?!?!
« on: 12/04/2007 16:35:46 »
I hate it so much when we bite our tongues by accident when we eat! Is there any reason for this? Because we are so hungry? Also not just our tongues, but the sides of my mouth! Or is it just me?

I hate this too...very much...especially when ewe do it again so soon after and it hits the same spot .


It is a well known fact that ' tongues' and the ' insides of cheeks ' have sado-masochistic tendencies.

They will purposely jump between your teeth to receive painful bitey joy and also impart agonising tear wrenching joy to you too.

This is the reason behind the growing industry of oral boot camps such as www.tonguesincheek.com and www.oraltraining.co.uk where you can drop your tongues and cheeks off for an hour whilst they undergo a regime of tough training and behavioral correction..

Yes..this is true !

And yep, I know when you hit the same spot again, in only a couple of hours or so.

Does anyone have any reasons why we bite our tongues and inner-cheeks? Is it just simply because it got in our way, when biting?

Seriously...I think you've got it there Seany chum....I think it's a matter of things just getting in the way...I would say it happens more when you're eating fast but I have bitten myself when chewing slowly too !...it's a co-ordination thing happening !...however..if there is a proper answer I am sure it will come.

Hmm. At the moment, I'm just beginning to think the same way as you. I've bitten myself by chewing gum, slowly, quickly..

I just don't get it.. I mean, how hard is it to avoid biting your OWN tongue?

Well, we're rather accomplished at it really when ewe consider how often we chew !..and biting our tongues and cheek is quite rare really don't ya think ?

No.. I bite it about once 2 weeks or so. Bit the inner-cheek today.. REALLY badly, looked in the mirror, I see a dark red hole and white stuff. Eww.

And Neil, where do you live? Because its 12:39 in England, so I hope you don't go soon! Because then I'll be bored on my own.. That's what I don't like about this site. Its active sometimes, inactive at others.. :(
