What kind of lube should I use for home stretching? I know it’s got to be sterile, but water based, oil based or what? And do you know where I can get some?


Back when I had piercings, I stretched using ASTROGLIDE. Its always handy to have around.

Is it okay to use neosporin on a healed piercing?

Is it okay to use neosporin on a healed piercing? some of mine get kind of dry in certain weather and I find it helps things.


If you’re just using for dryness, then something like vitamin E oil may be better. That being said, if it’s wrking for you, then by all means continue doing it. Everybody is different and what works for one person may not work for the next.

…here: am i ought to stretch a reverse prince albret?

Tuesday September 25th, 2007 @ 11:24 AM

Filed under: Piercing

im thinking about a reverse prince albert, but the encyclopedia doesnt have any info so i have some basic questions here:

am i ought to stretch a reverse prince albret? (like a pa must be stretched)

whats the best gauge to pierce a reverse pa?

how do i measure the inner diameter? (i assume i need it for erection/non erection)


Reverse PAs do not stretch nearly as easily as a standard PA. I would recommend starting at 8gauge, definitely no smaller than 10 gauge. As for inner diameter and all that, just go to a reputable piercer and they will use jewelry that is appropriately sized.

…if I can use Bactine on my 3 month old industrial?

Tuesday September 25th, 2007 @ 10:49 AM

Filed under: Piercing

I read multiple piercing stories where people were told to spray Bactine on their new piercing. My piercer didn’t give me much in the way of aftercare but I’m wondering if I can use Bactine on my 3 month old industrial?


Bactine should not be used on piercings. Bactine was designed for cuts and scrapes, not puncture wounds. Infact if you go to the Bactine website, it says right on there that they do not recommend the use of their product on piercings because piercings are a puncture wound.
Sea Salt soaks are something similar is going to work much better for you.

…visible to people I’m speaking to, or is it fairly hidden?

Tuesday September 25th, 2007 @ 2:27 AM

Filed under: Uncategorized

I’ve been interested in getting my tongue split for some time now, but I’ve recently had to deal with the backlash of “alternative” appearances in “polite” society so I was concerned about the visibility of a split tongue. Is this something that would be easily visible to people I’m speaking to, or is it fairly hidden? Thank you for any help you may provide, totally give me an adress and I’ll send baked treats of your choosing. For realz!


This is really hard to answer. I have friends that have it done and everytime they talk, i can see that it’s split; and I have others that you can’t see at all. But, if i didn’t know about split tongues, like the majority of people, i would probably never notice.
It’s kind of like a tongue piercing, some people who have them are very noticable, and others you can’t tell at all.

…BME people, so what is the deal with polysporin/neosporin?

Tuesday September 25th, 2007 @ 12:34 AM

Filed under: Piercing

Alright you lovely BME people, so what is the deal with polysporin/neosporin? I’ve been told by my piercer and many others that it isn’t good to use on a piercing, (though there seem to be some people who say the opposite as well) and I’m wondering why that is. Thanks :)


Unfortunately not all piercers stay up to date with proper aftercare. A piercings is essentially a puncture wound. Ointments are not recommended for use on puncture wounds because they can easily clog it. Infact, most of them say right on the side of the tube, not for use with puncture wounds.

…suggestions, or should I consult with my piercer?

Monday September 24th, 2007 @ 6:42 AM

Filed under: Piercing

Hi everyone. So I just now have decided to go through with my PA I have wanted for two years. Only I have a problem, Im a girl. Any suggestions, or should I consult with my piercer?


Well you have two options. 1) Get a sex change and pierce your brand new penis! 2) Get a Princess Albertina, the female counterpart to the prince albert. While the Prince Albert is a simple piercing to perform and rather common, the Princess Albertina is more difficult (and anatomically dependent) and far rarer. Finding a piercer experienced with this is not going to be easy, but do you research and you could be rewarded with a very cool, very stimulating piercing.

…of anyone who’d be able to do it in or around Toronto?

Monday September 24th, 2007 @ 4:19 AM

Filed under: Piercing

Hello there! I’ve been looking for an experienced piercer to do a triangle for me but I can’t seem to find anyone. Do you guys know of anyone who’d be able to do it in or around Toronto? Thanks!


Toronto, if I remember correctly requires females to pierce females and males to pierce males for genital work. I don’t know any female piercers in the area, but Toronto has long been a hotspot for quality mod work. I don’t know offhand current contact info for Blair or Tom Brazda, but I know Gary is still at way cool tattoos. http://www.waycool-uptown.com/

Gary’s a great piercer and a helluva nice guy. I’d go to him and if they do require female on female for this piercing I am sure he can refer you to someone

…is there such a thing as being to skinny to be pierced?

Saturday September 22nd, 2007 @ 11:15 AM

Filed under: Piercing

Hi I just want to know, is there such a thing as being to skinny to be pierced? My friend wanted to have her collarbone pierced and the piercer said that there is not enough flesh to be pinched.


Yep. there are people that are for practical purposes too skinny or too large to be pierced AND TO HEAL IT.

Anything/anyone CAN be pierced. But the “is it a good idea given that factor” argument goes a long way with people who know what they’re doing.
