Well, it was not my photo (this time), but a 3-page spread I wrote about erotic piercing, with photos of some other lovely pierced individuals. You can read a brief write up about it here on the ModBlog website. Run out and get a copy today! It talks about the Prince Albert, Frenum, and Dydoe for men, and explains the erotic possibilites for stimulation from certain iercings. It also goes into a little about VCH piercings as well.

I recently got a message from a Tribalectic Community friend:
I wanted you to know that when I was thinking of getting a frenum piercing, I visited your website. I was sitting on the fence about getting the piercing. I bought a couple of your genital piercing video clips to see what exactly I could expect if I decided to go through with it. You made the experience look relatively painless, professional, & quick. Those videos (and your expertise) calmed my nerves and help me decide to go ahead and get it done. I got my piercing and have no regrets (fact is, I'm thrilled with it), so a big thank-you and hug from me.
My response: HI there, Oh that GREAT! Thanks so much for the positive feedback. I'm glad that I was able to be helpful to reassure you and support your decision and to get pierced. I saw the photo and your piercer left room for a Prince Albert, if you ever decide you want to get one.... Who did your piercing? Sounds like it must have been a good experience. I'm so glad! Heal well and enjoy, Elayne

I found that I'd been quoted in someone's blog post today about the Prince Albert piercing. I helped to settle the case on whether Prince Albert himself actually had a Prince Albert piercing (he didn't):
Another thing: according to The Piercing Bible by Elayne Angel (p. 156), the healing time for a Prince Albert is "4 to 8 weeks or longer". Now, in a time when infection could not be reliably controlled, who is going to pierce themselves anywhere - let alone somewhere that delicate? Are you beginning to smell a hoax? In her book, Angel confirms my suspicions that Prince Albert did not have a Prince Albert, as does Matthew Sweet in Inventing the Victorians. So why do so many people think he did? Where did this "dressing ring" thing get started? According to Angel, these stories were made up by a man who called himself Doug Malloy (real name Richard Simonton). He is considered the father of modern piercing culture in the US.

I received this question about Dolphin Piercing:

If you want to watch how I perform piercings, you can see me doing them in graphic detail here: http://clips4sale.com/10557. There's also a great video of me examining different configurations of female anatomy and describing which piercings are possible and where exactly they chould be placed. They aren't meant as "how-to" videos, but they do show a lot about how I do what I do.

I received this message from a reader on my Facebook page. How amazing to hear that getting his Prince Albert piercing has drastically changed his self-esteem and perception of his body!
After doing a lot of reading and talking my co-worker Nycole, I decided to pierce my PA. (This was her first.) Much of the information we read and studied came from you. This piercing has drastically changed my personal opinion on my body view. Your work means so much to me and even more so now. Thank you 1000 times over.It is so validating to my work to get feedback like this (though I want to reiterate that the book is not intended as a "how-to-pierce" guide).

It has been a long time since I posted a new video on my clips4sale store.
The newest is of me performing a 10 gauge ampallang piercing (horizontally through the penis head) on a gentleman who already has a stretched Prince Albert piercing. It was shot during my visit to California last month, when I was guest piercing at Anomaly Piercing in Pasadena.
Oh, and it may surprise you to hear his comment: his nipple piercings were more intense than his ampallang (though I didn't perform them for him).
Note: it isn't SFW, and you have to be 18 years of age or older to view it.

Today I was asked a piercing-related question that I didn't know the answer to:
My partner and I both have a PA, frenum ladder, and scrotum ladders. Our piercings are now at a stage were we have resumed a lot of our activities but when we were getting these piercings we did not think to ask this. Is it safe with these piercings for electric play or is the jewelry to much of a conductor? Any info you can give me on this would be appreciated. Thanks, TonyMy reply: Thanks for your email. To be honest, I'm really not sure. I think it might be best to contact the manufacturer or vendor of any toys or equipment you plan to use to get their recommendations. My guess would be that it shouldn't be a problem since the piercing (and the jewelry in it) has an entry and an exit. So, perhaps electricity might conduct through the jewelry, but not be sent deeper into the body? But I'm guessing here. Please let me know whatever you find out so the next time this question comes up, I'll have a more informed answer. If your supplier knows much about this and has any questions I might be able to answer (about body jewelry, for instance), feel free to put them in touch with me. Good luck and enjoy, Elayne
