I received a message with some photos from a woman who was experiencing some concern about the placement of her triangle piercing.
I've only had the triangle piercing since Wednesday. I got my vertical hood piercing in 2005. My issue is that my triangle appears to be crooked and is not lying flat and it is interfering with my previous piercing. My piercer removed my VCH before piercing my triangle. I don't get shooting pains down my leg but I do not find the piercing aesthetically pleasing. I hope the pics come out clear enough for you to see.
Please help me, and hopefully if you agree with me, then I can get pierced by you when you come to Dallas in March. I live only an hour and some change driving distance from Dallas. I did thorough research on my piercer before I had the procedure and I don't think he nicked my clitoris bundle but there was a lot of drama with removing my VCH jewelry which could have thrown the piercing positioning off. Please help me.

I received an excellent question from a client about how she would know her triangle piercing is healed:
About the triangle I received from you 5 months ago - what particular indicator of healing should I look for so that I will know that the healing process is complete? This piercing remained relatively moist so I never noticed any "crusties". It was never painful (aside from the one or two times it got accidentally knocked during sex), and once the swelling and bleeding stopped a few days after the initial procedure, it has looked pretty much the same ever since. Will this type of tissue produce sebum in the piercing? How can I be sure the piercing is healed?

I received a wonderful message from a woman who visited The Piercing Bible website, read my book, and became well educated about piercings.
She has a medical condition called vulvodynia and when I looked it up, I was quite surprised to find this information:
A recent study found that one in four women experience chronic vulvar pain at some point in their lives, making vulvodynia a very common disorder affecting women and girls of all ages and ethnicities.
The good news is that she made sounds decisions about getting pierced and wrote to me about her highly successful VCH piercing:

I received an interesting email from a woman who is interested in a genital piercing, but had concerns about whether a VHC would affect her preferred style of masturbation:
I wanted to thank you for maintaining your website as a really informative resource on genital piercings.
I want a stimulating piercing and have been told I'm not a triangle candidate but could get a VCH. I like to masturbate by rubbing the shaft of my clitoris through my hood - have your clients reported that it's harder to reach the clit shaft if there's jewelry there?
Thanks so much! D.

I received a message with some photos from a woman who had received a Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing, but she was disappointed with it. She sought the piercing to enhance her sexual pleasure, and she was not experiencing any added enjoyment or sensations. I saw the photo, and this was my comment:

I received the following message from someone interested in viewing my web page in another language:
I would like to print your webpage out (with photos) in Spanish. Is that possible? I have a female friend who would like to have her clitoris pierced, but she doesn't know English. She would very much be interested in the content of your information. HELP? R.
If you go to this page http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings (or any page of my site) and look at the tool bar across the bottom of the browser, in addition to links to my Facebook page, Twitter page , and YouTube channel, one of the options will say "Translate." Click that and then select the language of your choice, and click on it.
Naturally, the translations won't be perfect, especially since the vocabulary for this topic is rather specialized--but it should help to make the content understandable.
In addition to the American English in which it is written, a translation of my website is available in the following languages: Chinese, Dutch, British English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish!
Thanks for your interest.

I received this message from a woman who got a "triangle" piercing done in NYC, and it was nowhere near where a triangle should be placed:
I just got this piercing done at a pretty reputable studio in NYC. But after reading up (even more) and seeing even more pics online, I'm wondering if it was placed too low? Would you please see the pic attached and give me your professional opinion? Thanks!! I wish you were near, but I felt confident in the piercer I ended up choosing locally :-)

On my guestbook I just received this AMAZING post from a woman I pierced when I was at 23rd Street Body Piercing in OKC recently:
Thank you Elayne for making the trek to Oklahoma City! Thankfully I stumbled upon your "Piercing Bible" website when I began my research on female geintal piercings! Ordered my copy, read it cover to cover (more than once!) and estatically discovered you were making a stop in OKC, just 2 short hours from where I live!!
The 3 months I eagerly waited from the time I contacted you until the actual date of our fateful appointment were spent carefully combing thru your "bible" in preparation for my piercings.
Thank you so very much for putting me at such great ease! From the moment I met you, I felt as if I had known you forever and a day! Had it not been for the fleeting, split second pinch from each piercing, I wold dare say I had just made an appointment to hang out and visit with a dear friend! I was completely at ease through the entire process, thanks in part to knowing I was completely prepared and because of you!
One amazing experience, 45 minutes, 3 piercings and 1 hug later, I walked out of the 23rd Street shop feeling as if I could do anything! So very grateful for the opportunity to meet you and your husband and for the opportunity to be pierced by THE expert in female genital piercings! After all, you wrote the book on it!
