So you want some shinny stuff in or around your mouth? Today we will examine oral piercings.
In my lifetime I have had three oral piercings, a tongue ring and two labrets. I have abandoned them all due to complications.
A Tongue Ring
What a great idea. A slice through your tongue that is almost concealable.
I had my tongue pieced at the age of sixteen and kept it until I was twenty-five. I took it out due to the damage it has done to my mouth which is no fault but my own. The piercing itself had absolutely no feeling or pain. I didn’t flinch a bit. It took less than two weeks to heal which is better than any 0ther piercing I have received.
Once it’s pierced you have a weeks worth of discomfort then another week of getting used to it. After two weeks it will feel as though it’s always been there, other than the occasional bite during a meal.
The piercing should be started with, at minimum, a 12 gauge barbel of 1″ in length. The barbel can be shortened once your tongue has healed but the longer length will allow for swelling.
If positioned properly the barbel should not hit your teeth and rest just before your upper gums.
What It Does To Your Mouth
Prepare for some dental damage. One thing you can count on about oral piercings is damage to your teeth and gums. I took both my tongue ring and labrets out due to damage that only got worse. If you get a tongue ring you will play with it, between certain teeth that become a habit. Slowly over time you will notice that specific teeth are wearing much faster than others. This is the time you should take out the piercing that is causing it. Tongue rings cause teeth damage and labrets will wear down your gums.
It took me about 7 years to notice the damage from my tongue ring and only 5 to take out my labrets. If you insist on an oral piercing be sure to keep close watch on your mouth. It’s expensive to fix.
If you must insist on an oral piercing a lip ring placed close to your mouth is maintainable without complication other than dry lips.
Does It Help Oral Sex?
Now for the kicker. I have had women that both had oral piercings as well as those who did not. I have noticed absolutely no difference between the two in the oral area.
The only thing I have noticed between my time with a pierced tongue and my time without regarding a woman is that now with the stud removed I have more mobility and range than I did with a pierced tongue. I haven’t heard any complaints but I can tell you things are more easily performed now that I don’t have an obstruction.
