I received yet another message from a woman who received a botched genital piercing (a triangle). But this one was far worse than many of the others, as it has resulted in her loss of genital sensation:
Hello, my name is E. and I am from the U.K, I have so much respect for you and what you,ve accomplished, therefore I feel that I will get the best advice on this matter.
I had a triangle piercing and it has had disasterous consequences, due to the fact that the piercer pierced right through the clitoral shaft with no anaesthetic and I can no longer feel anything down there. I had this piercing checked by an outstanding female piercer, she trained the other piercer that i go to, and she confirmed that it had gone right through the shaft and that the piercer had got the placement completely wrong.
I have since got the wrong triangle taken out and had the piercing done by this female piercer. It is not a proper triangle due to the fact that it would of done a lot of damage to all the scar tissue, however its straight, its right away from the shaft and it looks beautiful so I am very happy with that. I am considering taking legal action against the male piercer who has mutilated my genitals, but what i want to know is would it be worth it, or is it a case of my word against his? Thank you, E. xx
I am from the US, but I live in Mexico; as such, I have no idea about the legal system in the UK. But you may want to talk to a solicitor/attorney and see what he or she has to say about it. If your sexual function has been aversely affected, I should think that you might have a valid case against the piercer.
My book might be able to be used to show the professional industry standard and explain the appropriate placement for the triangle piercing--and highlight the fact that it should NOT be placed through the clitoral shaft.
