I received a message from a concerned piercee who had recently received a triangle piercing:
I was wondering if you could give me some urgent advice. :(
I have had my triangle a week, it has slightly moved/torn forward about 2mm, but I was told to expect this.
But I am more worried about the fact I can see slightly red/shiny bumps coming up around both piercing holes. I am worried that this is scar tissue and that it won't go away? It's been exactly a week now since I've got it done and I am happy with it but I'm afraid if I leave this in that I'll have lumps of scar tissue which will develop and not go away.
My outer labias do cover the jewelry a bit when my legs are closed and I'm afraid this is what will continue the problem. I have only been using sea salt water soaks on my piercing. I am pretty sure that the CBB is titanium as I went to a well respected studio with a well known piercer.
Do I take out the jewelry now before the problem develops?

I received a message from a woman who is interested in getting a triangle piercing. She had sent me some photos and I told her she appeared to be anatomically suited to a triangle piercing. Then she wrote:
I contacted a piercing studio and the receptionist told me a triangle is a ''nightmare piercing, not suited for someone who is sexually active, it's a horrible piercing.'' I was also told ''It'll stretch''. Is this actually true?
I feel really gutted because I've heard good things about the triangle and love the look of it but I've never heard this before. I know it's anatomy dependent but I thought it was a fine piercing for someone with the right anatomy, which I believe I do have after doing lots of research.
Can you please shed some light on this?

This past week I had the honor of visiting Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut to provide a lecture on Erotic Piercings for their Sex Week event. I gave an hour and a half talk to an attentive audience that consisted primarily of students (and a few professors as well!). My lecture was supported by abundant visuals (150 slides) throughout a PowerPoint presentation created especially for this event.
The focus of the class was genital piercings for both men and women, though I also covered the erotic possibilities of oral and nipple piercings, and emphasized the importance of seeking a highly qualified piercer. Graphic images of botched piercings drove that point home. I received a lot of positive feedback from members of the audience, several of whom reported that they were now considering getting genital piercings for themselves!
You can see the article here.

I received an email from a woman who received a triangle that was so painful I was certain it wasn't properly placed without seeing a photo. She wrote:

A woman who is flying to San Francisco to be pierced by me (she lives in Oklahoma, I believe) sent me this lovely message:
I have booked my airline tickets. I will be flying in the day before (Dec. 3rd and will arrive at 9:40 am.) I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to meet you and to have you do this for me. I, probably like every woman having this type of piercing, would have traveled anywhere possible to have the peace of mind in knowing that you are so skilled and knowledgeable in what you are doing. I am a Registered Nurse, based on your book and the many, many things I have read about you on the internet, have total respect for how you handle your profession. Having someone do this type of piercing is every bit as important as picking a skilled surgeon. I will see you on Dec. 4th at 2pm in San Francisco unless you need to make a change. Sincere thanks to you for taking so much time in evaluating and answering my many questions.--Lisa
She's planning to get a clitoris piercing (not her hood) and/or a triangle piercing. So it is definitely worth traveling to have them done right! I look forward to meeting her and piercing her!

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 question from a piercee who hadn't been well informed by her piercer:
I got the horizontal hood piercing. I have a bead ring, Brenda the lady who pierced me said she couldn't use the barbell like the one in my tongue. I love my new piercing but Brenda is on vacation and I got some questions. I work in recieving and I'm constantly moving my ring always moves to the side; is that normal?? My period is coming cuz I could feel the cramps, do I need more than sea salt water and antibacterial soap to clean it?? And how how long do you have wait to have sex. My piercer said a week but I don't think that sounds right. Well these are my questions I hope to hear from you soon.. Thanks Christina

I was recently contacted by an interesting woman. She's a gynecologist (among other things) and she requested my help to answer questions about body piercing for a book she's writing:
Dear Angel- I am an OB/GYN physician, artist, and author, and I am interested in getting touch with Angel to discuss clitoral piercing for a book I am writing. My book (working title: Coochie Confidential- Questions You'd Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend) is a book of Q&A about all aspects of women's health. The book will be published by St. Martin's Press in Fall 2010. Should you be interested in answering these questions, I would be happy to credit you, quote you, and reference The Piercing Bible. One question that was submitted relates to clitoral piercing.
