In brief: One possibility

Some people are very compliant in life but everyone needs at least little ways to rebel.
This is one fairly innocuous method that is not unethical. It is taboo in most of our us society - so that generates some excitement around it. It can also help to soothe oral fixations. And then again, maybe it is none of those things & is just a habit.
