Piercing the skin and putting jewelry through the hole created. The most common form of piercing is that of the bottom of an earlobe for earrings, but nearly every body part can be pierced without causing permanent damage. The nose, tongue, and nipples are also fairly common areas for piercing. Most piercing aficionados see it as a form of self-expression, sometimes even with a spiritual connotation. There is a claim that certain piercings can increase sexual sensitivity.
Piecing has an association with BDSM and fetish culture. As piercing and other forms of body modification are considered forms of self-expression, it’s only natural that a culture that likes to experiment with the extremes of the body would also incorporate piercing. Piercing can be used during a scene, for example by pulling on the piercing of a submissive or hanging a weight from it to cause discomfort. There is also chastity piercing, which can be used for orgasm denial. Piercing play takes the practice to a more active level.
Piercing of any body part should be done with care, and only by someone who’s trained. Sterile equipment is a must-have, to prevent infection.
