Part of the enjoyment of having a tongue piercing is the feeling of the right piece of body jewelry held in place inside the mouth. You can choose barbells made of steel, plastic, PTFE material (flexible) or pieces that are a combination of both types, as the ones shown that feature a surgical stainless steel barbell with silicone spine ends.
A tongue barbell with silicone spines can add a new dimension and extra sensations during foreplay. It’s best to experiment with the size, and materials available until you find the right combination that suits you the best. Make sure you purchase your body jewelry from a reputable seller that stands behind their products and offers free shipping within the USA.
