Default What's with the LICKING?

So Scooter ADORES licking my hubby and I, and while it was cute at first - like 3-5 licks on the nose or chin - she's started trying to lick our faces off, like she's cleaning us. I wouldn't have a problem with it except that she actually licked a sore on my face the other day. We stop her by putting her on the ground but I was just wondering if anyone else's cats did the same thing? This is the first experience I've had with it.

I don't mind when my cats lick my face. I find it sweet.

Okay, I suppose I should clarify.

I love my kitty and have always thought that anything that licked me was the cutest thing ever and showed me they loved me. If I had a dog that licked me as much as Scooter does, I would just up and let him. However, she likes to run her cute pink sandpapery little tongue over and over the same spot until you pull the covers over your face or re-position her so she can't reach it. I'm in no way upset with this habit of hers - in fact it breaks my heart in some ways - and I can deal with the sandpaper effect for a while but after some time she actually begins to give me big fat red sores on my chin and cheeks where the skin starts to peel back. They're painful and gross and therefore the licking has become somewhat excessive.

Again, I can stop it by re-positioning her but mostly what I was looking for was some sort of answer to why cats might lick SO much. I understand they like things clean - that was my assumption when she licked my face the first time - but she can't seem to stop on her own. I didn't know how many cats did this because I haven't had a single cat that licked me at all.
