Why is YOUR tongue pierced?

This topic has come up a lot lately, so I thought I’d get it resolved once and for all here on the SDMB. We also have a lot of ‘family’ members here, who might really know.

Who are tongue pirecings for? Oral sex is obviously one of the big reasons. My wife believes that if you’re pierced near the tip of your tongue it’s primarily to aid in oral sex on a woman, whereas if it’s further back, it’s to aid in felatio. A lesbian friend of hers said it just the opposite.

You know what I think? I THINK THAT SOME PEOPLE JUST PIERCE THEIR TONGUES FOR THE HELL OF IT! … and everything doesn’t have to fit in a specific catagory.


Wha? Ya gah a pwobwem wif toungue pierthingth? Mine ya owm bithnith!

Dammit Strainger, this is now the SECOND time today you made me spit soda all over my desk! You’re coming up here and paying for my cleaning bill!

As for tongue piercing…I have one friend who’s done it. It was for the hell of it. There’s my on-topic contribution…grin

People get tongue rings for lots of reasons. probably all of the above.

BUT, piercing near the end is really dangerous!!! the whole reason they try and pierce in the middle, is b/c there is a nerve that runs along the outer rim of the tongue (pinch your tongue in the middle and slide it to the edge to feel the nerve bundles). If you damage that nerve, you could lose use of your tongue. Imagine oral sex then!!!

I used to have my tongue pierced… had it for about 4 years, before I got bored with it and took it out.

I originally got it done because I wanted to… not because it was a sexual enhancement.

Actually, in my experience, the piercing was more in the way during oral sex than otherwise…

OK, so God created me; so he has control over me; so he has no right to bitch about anything I do.

STRAINGER – Thanks to you, kind sir, I am once again laughing my butt off at work. People here think I’m nuts. That was Hi-larious. ::wiping eyes::

Does this mean bisexuals have to get their tongues pierced twice?

I’d like to encourage ALL women to get their tongue pierced!

Thank you for your prompt attention in this matter…

Yer pal,

Pierced tongue fellatio doesn’t feel any different than non-pierced tongue fellatio. (Unless you mean for the tongue, dunno about that :wink:

any females getting their tongues pierced from this point on can now claim the devil made them do it, thanks Satan!

The idea of a small metal rod scraping up and down my most sensitive area does not sound like an “enhancement”. I think they do it just to try to be cool, not to be different because it seems like 1 in 3 people I see have one. Whats funny is that blue tongue and liquid meals they have to put up with for a few days.

Neobican… my tongue never changed colors, and I was eating solid food within 3 hrs of having the piercing done.

Yes, I am a brat…and it’s hard work!!

I’ve already got enough holes, thankyouverymuch…

I’ve got nothing against piercings per se, but this one seems pretty stupid in that it can really interfere with your life. I’ve known a couple of people with pierced tongues, and at least in them it caused a speech impediment when they had the stud in.

Andrea, I’ve got a question for you. When you decided to take the tongue stud out, how long did it take to heal? I know this girl who had one, and she told me that the guy who pierced it for her told her that if she takes it out for more than a day, then the hole closes up.

And what lovely holes they are, my dear Stella.

Who needs tongue rings for oral sex when you can just find someone with braces & rubber bands & get the full treatment.

Shadow… I don’t know how long it took to heal I took the stud out and never tried to put it back in.

As to the ‘speech impediment’… after the piercing healed my speech was normal…unless I felt like altering it around the piercing… I don’t know how to explain that, but if your friends have speech impeediments related to the piercing, either the piercing was poorly done, or they are doing it themselves.

Oops… excuse the typos… :slight_smile:

It’s pierced because I was eating microwaved burritos and talking at the same time and YEOW. Healing nicely, though.
