Nipple piercing (for both women and men) is becoming one of the most performed type of body piercing today. If you are considering having yours done, there are a few things you must know about the process. The first thing is the most obvious; the pain. Piercing the nipples is very painful, one of the most painful piercings you can get. Secondly, the healing time can extend up to and beyond a year. During that time, you will be constantly ‘reminded’ that your nipples are still healing by various ‘brushes’ against clothing, bras, etc. etc. For nipple piercings, it is extremely important to follow the aftercare guidelines given to you by your piercer to the letter, and make sure to not allow contact between your healing nips and your partners mouth, as this can lead to serious infection!
Once the healing process is complete, you can relax and begin enjoying some of the ‘benefits’ that come with having your nipples pierced. First, you will notice that your nipples are actually more sensitive to stimulation, even if you are just walking around or going about your daily movements. During sex, having your partner stimulate them directly will give you sensations you never felt before, with some women reporting the ability to climax just from having their nipples manipulated. Nipple piercing truly gives new meaning to the phrase, ‘No pain, no gain.”
