Video Of Whiteheads Getting Ripped Out Will Mesmerize You

I apologize for this post.

But I watched the entirety of this video, all 5:05 minutes of it, and I have to share this with someone else.

I watched in complete silence, shock and awe as someone's whiteheads were slowly pulled from their pores.

And when it was over, I thought to myself,

And then, I thought,

I want to vom and yet... I'm intrigued.

For some odd reason, watching people pop pimples, cysts and pull blackheads and whiteheads out of their very oily skin is very popular on YouTube.

Some people even let their friends pop their massive pimples for them. It, of course, ends with the massive pimple spraying their friend, and results in what I can only assume is the end of a friendship.

Is this what everyone's blackhead and whitehead removal looks like up close? Or is this truly how slugs are born?

I suppose I can take solace in the fact if you've made it this far, you also can't stop watching these oils being extracted from a person's face.

We are freaks together.

But why do we like watching this type of thing so much?

Daniel Kelly, an assistant professor of philosophy at Purdue University and author of "Yuck!: The Nature and Moral Significance of Disgust," told Cosmopolitan why we might enjoy these gross-out videos.

She said,

So, really, we are all just thrill-seekers -- that makes us sound much more normal than "pimple-poppin' junkies."
