play piercing...unexpected spiritual
The first time that I heard about play piercing, I was mortified, and just couldn't understand why someone would want to push needles through their body without the later gratification of jewelry. I would find out soon enough that there was an immense amount of gratification that goes along with the practice. Also, before I start, I would like to free myself from any litigation that might follow from someone hitting a vein, artery, nerve, or causing any manner of unwanted physical or mental damage before, during, or after if you have decided to try something like this. I am not responsible for your mistakes, because they can happen. I just want to share my experience with you guys.
I'll start out by saying that I realize that my methods might not have been the most sterile and or safe, but I have yet to detect any infection, and the piercing holes are almost fully healed. Anyway, I had the house to myself one night, and was bored, when I remembered a conversation I had with a friend of mine about play piercing, and how I wondered what it was like. They said that they had tried it one night, and didn't really like it, but another friend of ours had tried it, and really enjoyed the experience. For the record, I would like to say that none of us are "cutters", and would never do anything of this sort in an attempt to get any attention or recognition for what we had done. I decided that I was going to find out what the practice was all about, and do some experimenting.
I began my "journey" by grabbing about ten of my moms quilting pins from her sewing drawer, they are about 2.5 inches in length and about a 20 or 22 gauge in size. I put them in a bath of rubbing alcohol for about 10 minutes while I prepared some paper towels for when I removed the pins from wherever I thought would be a good place for them. I then took a shot of whiskey, and went into the bathroom, drained the needles, and took the first step along my path that night. I chose the first spot for the pin to be the skin on top of my knee-caps since there aren't many nerve endings there. I pinched the skin up so that I could have a good area to push the pin through, then I inserted. There was very little bleeding, so that is a definite plus. The area was a little tougher than I thought, so it took a little more effort to break the skin, but I got it through, and wow, what a rush. There was an immediate high from the adrenaline pumping through my system, then came an intense indescribable peaceful feeling. I then pushed a pin through my other knee-cap and basked in the feeling of being at one with my existence. Having eight more pins, I thought that the next place to put them would be three going across the skin covering where my hip bones protrude a little bit. I did these in quick succession hoping for some other flavor of rush, which is not to say that it wasn't different from my knees, it just wasn't enough to call "unique". The last two pins were destined for a sort of all or nothing path, because I knew I probably wouldn't have enough time to myself for a while to explore the possibilities of play piercing. One of them went through the base of my scrotum very near my perineum, and the other at the base near my penis. The skin was very stretchy, but I could definitely tell when the piercing was made. The pain wasn't the worst part of it, just the shock of what I had just done. After this died down, I decided to pull on my fresh piercings to try to get some more sensations from it all. My knees were the least sensitive part, so my hip piercings became my favorite ones to pull on, and twist slightly since my scrotum piercings were just too sensitive. I wove the pins through the skin around the original pierced area, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience that came with doing so. This lead the peaceful feeling came back to me, and being a Christian of sort, I decided this was a good time to do a little praying, so I did. When I was finished, I removed all ten pins, cleaned up what little blood there was, cleaned and returned everything to where it was supposed to be. In the end, I am very glad I did my little experiment because it lead me a step closer to realizing my spirituality, Plus, I am left with some pretty cool looking dots around my hips that I am hoping will turn into small keloids.
