Tongue Piercings: Suited to Minors, or Adults Only?!

I received an interesting question from a piercer who wanted to know my opinion on piercing the tongues of minors:

  • I was writing today with a question regarding tongue piercings. I was always under the assumption that the minimum age requirement is 18. I understood it to be a sexual piercing. Lately in my area some piercers have been piercing childrens tounges as young as 14. Is the age limit a law or just a guideline? I feel it is a highly inappropriate piercing for a minor and i myself refuse to do them on anyone younger than 18. Could you please shed some light on this subject? Thank you so much for your time.

The Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Surface Piercing on Woman Who Knew What to Look For!

I received a question from a woman who got a surface VCH piercing. This was more disturbing than usual because she had seen this site and read all about the pirecing. Even so, she ended up with a VCH surface piercing:

Are you still finding the time to answer questions? If yes I have a question on surface VCH piercings: do you advise keeping them and if not why not? 

I found your website and had a read through before getting my piercing but I guess no amount of reading can guarantee the result you're after. The lady I went to certainly talked the talk. I had the piercing done today and I'm not unhappy with the result but I think it may be incorrectly placed.

What is your opinion on my piercing? Can I keep it or do you think it will cause me issues further down the track? I can't really gauge the implications of a surface piercing from the info on your website.

Thanks for your time and assistance in advance,

J.

Hi J.,

Triangle (Female Genital) Piercing Suitable for Virgin? (with photo)

I received an interesting message from a woman who is interested in getting a triangle piercing, but she has not had penetrative sex yet (and may never have had an orgasm):


I have been thinking about getting a triangle piercing for about 3 months now. I have trouble (or perhaps have never, am not super clear on this point) reaching orgasm and I think that this would help. From the information you gave on your site, I think that I am anatomically suited for it (yay). A friend implied that since I have not ever actually had penetrative sex, I should wait and "see if that makes a difference" (I am in my mid-twenties and attracted to men). In your professional opinion, do you think this piercing would make a difference? And do you think I should wait until after I have penetrative sex (that could be a while).

My reply:

This is a very personal decision that I can't make for you. Though I can most certainly encourage you to wait until you're able to get to a piercer who is highly qualified, meaning someone I recommend, or me personally.

I can say (as a sexually savvy mature woman in my 50s) that you won't be fully versed on what you enjoy sexually until you get more experience. So you wouldn't be able to know, for example, how the piercing has enhanced sex, until you've had it.

Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing too Shallow? (With Photos)

I receieved a message from a woman who got a VCH piercing but she was concerned about the placement:

VCH Piercing, appears somewhat shallowHi Elayne,
I just got my vch pierced two weeks ago...I'm afraid its too shallow and I can see the bar a little thru the skin. The piercer did use a receiving tube and said she used as much skin as possible ..and even performed the q tip test. In your opinion,  should I take it out or is it ok.

If it is shallow do I have to take it out or is this something that I can manage? Will it migrate easier like it is?

Thanks, S.


My reply:

From this view it looks rather shallow/close to the edge of your hood. But if it is placed at the apex (deepest point underneath) then it wouldn't necessarily be able to be done much further from the edge. Then there's the question of whether you were actually a suitable candidate to begin with.

Interesting Question about "Effectiveness" of Female Genital PIercings

I recently got a very interesting question I hadn't been asked before:

Though you may not be able to answer this I'd like to ask if you know an estimated percentage of women who sexually benefit from VCH and HCH piercings. My main reason for doing it is enhancing orgasms, not anatomical "beauty". I've read that few women truly get more or easier orgasms through piercings. If its less likely I'd have some improvement its probably not worth it for me.
Would you have any idea? 
Thank you!
T.

My reply:

Did you read this page of my site: http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings ?

It explains that VCH VCH and Triangle Piercing and triangle piercings (both shown in image, right) are the two that are most commonly "functional" for women and those are the placements that are more likely to increase stimulation and sexual enjoyment. And that the HCH is primarily ornamental for most women.

I can also say that I do get a great deal of positive feedback from women who describe the genital piercings I do for them as "great" or "wonderful" and report, "I love it!" but they don't necessarily provide me with particulars in every case. From the feedback I receive, I'd have to say it seems "worth it"--as that is the overall sense I get from my clients. Here's a comment from a recent posting on my guestbook:

Hood Splitting vs. Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) and Triangle Piercings

I received a message from a woman inquiring about hood splitting:


I'm writing to get your opinion (and maybe some information) on clitoral hood splitting.  I currently have a vch and triangle, which I believe are both placed perfectly.  But, I'm still having problems achieving orgasm (I was hoping those would help).  I think it's because my hood is rather thick and even when I'm "hard" my clitoris isn't exposed at all so it makes it difficult to actually stimulate it.  I've been trying to do some research and maybe find information about hood splitting and where to get it done (I'm located in the midwest) but I can't seem to find much of anything.  I was hoping that maybe you could give me some information on it.

Thank you!

Biangle vs. Triangle


The optimal location for the triangle piercing is at the natural base of the hood, as high as it can go and still be underneath the nerve bundle (that's where you are going to get maximum stimulation from the jewelry).

Genital Play Piercing vs. Permanent Piercings with Body Jewelry

I recently received a very interesting piercing question from a piercer who is unsure of what to do when it becomes clear that a client is getting genital piercings for the experience of being pierced, and who does not really want to wear jewelry:

I have a 74-year-old gentleman who early last week came in and requested 4 8 gauge frenum piercings and an 8 gauge prince albert. Anatomy was suitable for the frenums but not quite for the P.A. so I made him aware and performed that piercing at a 10 gauge instead.

Everything was well and good, he was a more than satisfied client and went on his way. 3 days later he came in again and had taken them all out and wanted them all performed again. The P.A. was easily tapered back open and was not in need of a repierce. To redo the Frenums I just offset them a safe distance from the previous spots and re pierced them. The fact that he had had the procedure performed and then taken them out and had them redone within 3 days raised a few questions in my mind but i decided that I had no reason to not believe him when he said that he had just gotten frustrated with them so he took them out and realized doing so was a mistake.

Today, however, the gentleman came in to the shop again (3 days after the re-pierce, 6 days after the initial procedure) and had taken them all out again and wanted them re pierced yet again.
