Conch, Tragus, and Anti-tragus Piercing

ch, Tragus, and Anti-tragus Piercing Last week (Feb 25) I got my helix pierced (story already on BME). Piece of cake, a bit tricky to clean so got a bit infected but this is subsiding now. A couple of days later I got a conch piercing by Phil again. Although the helix pierce was easy and relatively pain-free I had nerves beforehand. Not this time! I went in and they were pretty quiet so I didn't have to wait at all for this one, just five minutes while he got prepared. Hurt a bit, but no real problem and it ... read more

my first cutting

She didn't seem to notice me. I was talking to my friend Tricia, who had been showing me some of her new whips. The whips were on the counter, and this American lady was very interested, she even asked if she could buy one. The whips were made by the whipmaker residing at Club Doma, the place we were having a women's playparty that night. Tricia works at the club as a professional submissive, I found out about the party through Tania who was organizing the party and I was kind of surprised to find Tricia there. The American woman ... read more

ple Piercing in Boston Nipple Piercing in Boston Date: Sat, 9 Nov 1996 14:38:51 -0500 (EST) The timing had finally worked out. I was going into Boston to get my nipples pierced. I was nervous, for two reasons: 1. I was running late and 2. I hadn't yet eaten that day (because I was running late). I arrived about fifteen minutes into my appointment...shaking like a leaf. As I was filling out my release forms, the woman behind the counter noticed that I was having problems writing straight. She asked me if I was okay. I explained that I was ... read more

EUNUCHS IN INDIA

UCHS IN INDIA EUNUCHS IN INDIA It has been estimated that there are at least a million eunuchs in India. They are known as hijra, and make their livings as beggars, prostitutes and by removing "bad luck". Visitors to India can frequently see groups of gaudily dressed hijra outside large railway stations. They beg for money and, if you refuse, you will be loudly cursed and they will expose the area between their legs where their genitals used to be. Many of them have also had this area branded, so that at first glance they appear to be women. The ... read more

Ear Stretching Experience

Stretching Experience My stretching experience, thus far. I first got interested in stretching my ear lobe after seeing a friend of mine with a 2-gauge acrylic plug in his ear. I had previously seen stretchings of an inch or so, and Masaii tribal stretchings of more than 3 inches, and thought that they were sort of tasteless, but when I saw my friend, I was immediatly enthralled. My only hesitation was, "what will it look like when I'm 50 years old and no longer have anything in the hole?" and "will I be able to get jobs with a half-inch ... read more

Yet another nipple piercing experience.

another nipple piercing experience. Yet another nipple piercing experience. It seems that I have always been fascinated by body art. When I was a small child in the 60's, I loved tattoos. I would squeal with delight whenever I found temporary tattoos in my box of Cracker Jack. I harassed my mother until she broke down and took the time to apply it for me. (Some of you may be too young to remember those tattoos; all that was needed to transfer them to the skin was a bit of water (or spit, if you were desperate.) It seemed like ... read more

Australian navel piercing experience

tralian navel piercing experience For around ten months I had been fascinated with bodyarts and especially piercing. I've found it quite sensual to the point of being erotic, and had wanted to get my navel pierced for almost as long! So in the last few weeks I'd researched via the 'net about hygeine, aftercare etc, learning to understand the procedures and what to expect. But today I finally gained the courage to go to the piercing studio and "just look" at the jewellery, maybe talk to the piercer. Strangely (!) after 4 minutes staring at the glass showcase I'd chosen ... read more
