Maybe they’re being ironically kawii? See also http://asianposes.com/ which has examples of several different hand signals.

Do you really need this explained or are you trying to lure out the weak among us?

I can’t say I’ve really paid attention, but hipster/emo types seem to do it more than usual too.

That means Cunnilingus, Kong. Though many of them just think it’s the cool thing to do, when it’s sans-tongue.

Oh, that. OK, imagine the fingers are legs.
