To pierce, or not to pierce
I'm still occasionally thinking about getting a nipple piercing, though still not very seriously. I don't see it as some sort of fashion statement but instead as it's potential for variation with regard to sexual stimulation. In that vein the idea of spending months in painful recovery makes the idea much less attractive except in those moments of sexual stimulation.

I've also wondered if I should get a ring or a bar. I'm leaning toward bar simply because it poses less risk for getting hooked on things or flipping up and down or rubbing around during recovery. A ring would provide more variety in usage, but to be honest I don't have much desire to have it used in any way a ring would be.

I'm still sticking to not getting one, though the idea persists.

I've also been thinking about it, especially the last couple of years since my nipples seem to be getting more sensitive as time goes on. If I do get one, I'll probably get a bar as well because I've known a lot of people who get their rings caught in their shirts/bras, etc, and it's apparently really painful when that happens.

I only know one person off hand who has nipple rings so I haven't heard any anecdotal words about what to or not to get, which could be one reason I wonder about getting it done since I don't have any authoritative information beyond the basics easily found online.

I suppose the flipping up and down could be very irritating the during the healing process, though I can also imagine it could be rather exciting to play with like that after word. I just don't want someone grabbing and pulling on it. o.O

Bars are also less obvious through shirts, which makes them less of a target for getting grabbed.

I tried three times with nipple rings, but running irritated them too much for me to keep them in. Did much better with the PA and scrotum ring. :)

heh, why am I not surprised? :-P

Speaking of which, scrotum rings are pretty uncommon. I saw one on a guy in nude photos the other day (before this post). I can't say I have any interest in a PA or scrotum ring, but hey, to each their own. :-)

the pain doesn't sound all that appealing at all

why not get both pieced ? ;)

it's always fun to think of ideas of what we want to do but doesn't mean we have to do it

The pain isn't appealing, but if I were to get them pierced then I'd probably get both pierced just so I wouldn't have to decide on doing the left or right one. That and symmetry. :-P

I like acting on ideas, or deciding why they're a bad idea so I don't have to wonder.
