People have been left horrified after learning the meaning of a rainbow kiss. 

From the Alabama hot pocket to fluid bonding, plenty of NSFW trends go viral – however, none are quite as eyebrow-raising as the rainbow kiss.

While it may sound like an innocent term, people who have looked it up on Google are saying they’re ‘scarred for life’.

After watching TikToks on what the trend entails, people have taken to social media and shared their shock.

One person comments: “I am shaking.”

Another adds: “I should never have searched that…”

A third TikToker vows: “I’m never going to do that.”

“Scarred for life,” somebody else simply states.

While a fifth person writes: “People need to stop.”

So, what exactly is a rainbow kiss?

The explicit term refers to bodily fluids being swapped between a person with a uterus and a person with a p**is.

It’s typically performed in the 69 position – what makes it different is that one person is on their period.

Following e***ulation, the partners – one with s**en in their mouth and the other with menstrual blood in theirs – kiss, mixing the two and resulting in a rainbow.

The term is often mixed up with snowballing, which refers to a person e***ulating into another’s mouth, kissing them and sucking the s**en back into their own. They then exchange the s**en back and forth.

Dr Wendasha Jenkins Hall, PhD, an Atlanta-based s** educator and founder of The Sensible S**pert, says the rainbow kiss likely started as the 69 position.

She tells Cosmopolitan: “This is a level up from that.”

Most importantly, is the rainbow kiss safe to perform?

Everyone needs to be of age and enthusiastically consenting to perform the act.

It’s important to know whether the other person has any sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as by participating in this trend, they are very easy to pass on.

Rainbow kisses should be avoided if you have any cuts, sores or ulcers in your mouth or bleeding gums, as this increases the risk of infection as well as HIV.

Heather Irobunda, MD tells Cosmopolitan: “Semen and period blood can carry lots of different infectious particles, such as HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis.

“If you are unsure of your partner’s STD status, you should not be sharing rainbow kisses.”

If you are single, you should get tested before having s** with someone for the first time and they should do the same. It’s advisable to get tested every three to six months, per Your Sexual Health.
