This is for both men and women in the Xanga community. I need some advice. I'm debating getting my tongue pierced but need to know a bit more about it.
This is a big step for me. I've never had any piercings or tattoos at all, except for those Power Rangers kinds that faded the second that our super competitive roller hockey matches began to induce perspiration.
I'm not clean-cut by any means, I generally am unshaven and have my hair grown out pretty long, and I don't dress particularly well. But, still, I've never had an aspect of my appearance that particularly stood out or was abnormal. But, now that I'm getting set to move into NYC I feel like I need to find a way to proudly display my inner-"freak."
I work at a restaurant with a lot of gay males as coworkers. One of them has his tongue pierced, and when I asked him if I should do it he replied, "Yeah you'll give much better head!"
This got me kinda worried; are people going to assume I'm gay because I have my tongue pierced? I'm not homophobic at all, it's just a big reason for doing this is because I hope it will increase my success with women and just attract more attention to myself when I go out.
From what I hear, females also can get plenty of enjoyment from a tongue piercing. And, based on what I learned in health class, it seems anatomically certain that a tongue ring would effectively increase sexual stimulation during foreplay. (See how practical sex Ed. is when it's not abstinence-only?) It could also be a fun addition to any make out session.
But, I'm worried about the negative things I'll have to deal with. How much does it cost, and what's the procedure like? What's it like eating after it gets pierced? What meals do you recommend in the few subsequent days? How long does it take to get used to? What sort of maintenance is necessary? And has anyone had a bad experience? (I don't want to end up like the guy in Rat Race).
And, most importantly: ladies, what goes through your mind when you see a dude with his tongue pierced?
Guys and girls alike, I need some info and advice!
