Ahhhh. Corsette piercing. Isn't it pretty? No? I suppose it's all in the eye of the beholder. The subject this week is BDSM. Piercing and body jewelry is one small aspect of the BDSM world. There are others... cuffs, collars, leashes, and an increasingly bizarre collection of gear--some of which we won't discuss on this blog.
I was challenged to discuss body jewelry. In a tasteful way. Hmmm. I have earned a certain reputation for having body piercing in quite a few of my books, along with tattoos. I believe that some people might even believe that I'm a depraved person. However, one only has to query the internet using the word piercing along with the name of a body part to find out that my books border on the vanilla when it comes to piercing.
Piercing and the accompanying jewelry frequently plays a prominent part in romances featuring BDSM. In the master/submissive relationship, the master might request his submissive to consent to piercing so that she is wearing body jewelry that identifies her as his. That jewelry can include, though it certainly is not limited to rings, chains, barbells, and charms. Depending on the depth of the bondage part of the relationship, less permanent non-piercing body jewelry might be employed.
Body jewelry is sold on a myriad of web sites, but the actual piercing should be done by a professional. There are too many nerves involved, not to mention other things to fool around with the possibility of permanent damage. If one of my readers is tempted to experiment, then certainly make sure that you seek the services of a professional who is familiar with body piercing.
For those new to experimentation, I suggest trying out non-invasive jewelry first. There is a lot to choose from if only you surf the web.
