Generally - the natural occurrence of facial hair, also known as a beard, which tends to grow on a man's face, if he chooses not to shave for an extended period of time.
Specifically - Jake Gyllenhaal's beard.

Etymology:

The term face pet was first coined by "lemniscate", on September 29th 2010, when posting on the popular Jake Gyllenhaal fan blog called Wet Dark And Wild.
The word combination face pet was engendered in reference to:
1) the tendency men have to subconsciously stroke and touch their face and/or facial hair; often a form of auto-erotic touching when flirting to indicate they're interested
2) the health benefits discovered by researchers at the University of Warwick with regards to stroking or playing with one's pet
Jake gently strokes his face pet whilst staring into the distance, lost in a wistful gaze.

A BDSM term used to refer to a submissive who's primary act of submission is to orally service their Dom. Mostly used to describe the sub of a female Dom who quite enjoys being orally serviced... For her own pleasure of course.

Most facepets can achieve their own orgasm simply by orally servicing their Dom's.
Kneel, face pet!

So I got myself a new facepet and this time, it's a girl.
