Right. I haven't mentioned this to my boyfriend at all. In fact, my relation to him at the moment is...good? I'm not really bothered about him being my boyfriend, it's great that he is and he's become much more kinda romantic (for the moment) bringing me flowers, telling me icky romantic things he never would've said before ("When you're really into someone, they're beautiful to you all the time") wanting to spend time with me.
So, on that front, I'm feeling sexy, perfectly at comfort with myself and indifferent about my relationship status.
I just want to do something different, something I can keep a naughty secret. Have any of you ever walked around all day with Ben Wa balls in? It makes you feel SO hot, turned on, not so much from the sensations, but from knowing that they're inside you and no-one else knows.
This is a similar thing. I wanted to get my belly button pierced (some might recall I posted about that) but a lot of people have said it's quite an 'immature' piercing, one that all teenage girls have done. Belly buttons have a higher risk of infection and DEFINATELY don't heal as well as a clitoral hood piercing would.
Seen as the female genitals 'clean' themselves, the healing factor is better/quicker and the risk of infection lower.
I'm not a silly immature teenager who'd go around doing everything to impress her guy and get him interested in her. I can damn well do that without changing my body. I want to get this for ME. For the sensations it would bring ME, for the sense of 'individuality' and doing something interesting and daring. So stop talking as if I'm just trying to impress other people, I'm not like that in the slightest.
I'm asking if people find it sexy as a side-note, not a major point in my decision.
Also, I'm not just going to walk into some shitty little tattoo parlour and nip straight onto the table for a stoned up teen with little experience stick a needle in my hoo-ha. I know the girl in the closest piercing shop from previous trips there, she's very professional and very experienced. I'm planning on going there soon to discuss the piercing with her, see what she thinks, find out more about the process and see if I want HER to do it. (If I get it done).
Oh, by the way, my boyfriend does have a job now, yes. 9am til 5:30pm, mon-fri.
I don't think someone just suddenly starts thinking about a piercing like that.
Well for me it is. I've been thinking about getting a piercing for a while, this one just didn't occur to me until recently... I was going to get my tongue pierced, belly button, more piercings on my ears...
-Ears wouldn't suit me, tongue is bad for teeth and can paralyse you if it goes wrong, belly button gets easily infected and caught on things. Clitoral hood however, is more sexually related, brings more pleasure for me, gives me a little decoration down below, something unusual for me to do, heals quicker than belly button and for some people at least, is sexy.
There are plenty of people who decided it wasn't for them and took it out. It heals up better than a belly button piercing because of where it is (doesn't get as easily caught etc) with little to show
Whereas a belly button piercing, the hole can stay open indefinitely, it doesn't heal up as easily anyway and is in a more noticeable place. It'll be just me and my boyfriend (and the mother who refuses to give me bathroom privacy because it's HER house
) who'll see a clitoral hood piercing.
I want this for ME because it's adventurous, not to impress my boyfriend (who rarely gets impressed by anything like that anyway
The risk of getting instant loss of sensation is not that high. If the piercer slipped and hit a nerve in the clit or something, yes. But there's a low chance of that happening. Seriously.
Tongues are incredibly higher risk and plenty more people have those done, and for what? They don't give you more sexual sensations...
I'm sure that after a few years, yes the feelings would be reduced, personally I could find that great, seen as I am already incredibly sensitive...as in too sensitive to have a LOT of contact with clit, little contact fine.
I'm not really planning on keeping it in for an extended amount of time. Maybe a year or something. It's a case of wanting to try something new and something that could increase my chances of having an orgasm with my boyfriend. It'll lose it's novelty after a while and probably just get irritating, like my ears do sometimes, but for that intitial period it'll give me a 'thrill' to know it's there and for no-one else to, and some possibly new sensations.
I'm too used to getting myself off, that giving the boyfriend access to my clit doesn't have much of a point in the first place. The clit hood piercing will probably build up my sexual energy throughout the day and give me more energy to **** like bunnies all night long.
Apologise for the crude language, but I am seriously pissed off at all the suggestions that I'm doing this to 'impress' guys because I'm not happy with my appearance.
I like the sexiness that a Belly Button piercing can achieve with a crop top on a skinny girl, but that wouldn't suit me in the slightest. I'm a sexually orientated person (in a non-perverted way...eg I want to open my own 'sex shop' <<<) so clitoral hood would be like my belly button piercing; I can buy fancy jewellry but it'll be my little secret to reveal to whoever I wish.
I'd wish not to have the piercing pulled, frankly, though I can be a little sadomasochistic... There's less chance of it getting tangled in clothes than more obvious piercings, including the belly button. Seriously though, I'm not going to stop bathing and start wearing lacey panties for the piercing to get caught in! I work in a Pharmacy and therefore have cheap access to saline solution (cheaper than normal anyway) so I'd be buying a load of that and using that every day. A lot of people just leave it be, wash normally, because the vagina 'cleans' itself, as I may have mentioned...
It's NOT a high infection rate if you look after a piercing properly. It's NOT a high risk of permanently damaging your bits and pieces unless you go to a shoddy piercer who has no idea what they're doing and little experience. It's NOT as likely to get caught in clothing as belly button piercings (I figure that;s what I'm comparing to right now), panties are one bit of material where the piercing would be in the middle of it. Belly buttons sit right where the base of your t-shirt is going to rise and fall, and you pull on tops/jumpers and trousers can sit that high where the waistband'll rub.
I certainly agree that over an extended amount of time there WILL be a decrease in sensation (unless you're lucky) but I'm not planning on keeping it that long. Other than that, what's the difference from an ear piercing, which you'll expose to more bacteria (more in the air) and can't see as well to keep clean, plus you lie on it while you're sleeping...??
