While browsing your photos, I noticed that you have pierced nipples. I am seriously considering having mine pierced, but know very few women who have had the procedure done, and even fewer who are open enough about their bodies and their sexuality to even discuss the topic of nipple piercing. Is it true that your nipples stay permanently erect once they’ve been pierced? Is there an increased risk for mastitis and other breast health-related complications? I’ve never been an ardent fan of nipple play. Do you think having my nipples pierced could increase my interest level? Do you enjoy your nipple piercings, and how long have you had them?
I only have one of my nipples—the right one—pierced, and it was pierced by the world-famous body modification artist from the San Francisco Bay Area Raelyn Gallina in Hartford, CT in 1992 on my birthday. It was a gift from a friend of mine! No, it is not true that pierced nipples stay hard all the time, my pierced nipple behaves just like my other nipple in that department. There hasn’t been a lot of research on the subject, but as far as I know, piercing does not increase your risk of developing cancer or other breast ailments. I, too, am not a big fan of nipple play, and piercing my nipple didn’t really change that, but everyone is different, so I can’t predict what might happen for you. I will say that I enjoy having only one nipple pierced. The pierced one is very, very sensitive, and the lightest amount of tweaking is pretty intense, whereas, the unpierced one can take lots of pinching and twisting and rougher play. I enjoy being able to experience sensations on both ends of the spectrum!
