I recently received a great message from a gentleman who got his first piercings at age 50. He wrote to say how much he likes emu oil, and how well it worked on his piercings and stretches:

This is the second time I've noticed this. I've had a few piercings since I was young. I got a batch of piercings a while ago and the old, established piercings started to ache and ooze along with the new piercings. All seemed to be better and I got a few more piercings recently. Now all of my piercings, including the last batch are sore and crusting. Can my new piercings cause my older piercings to be irritated? Thanks, S.

I received a wonderful message from a woman who visited The Piercing Bible website, read my book, and became well educated about piercings.
She has a medical condition called vulvodynia and when I looked it up, I was quite surprised to find this information:
A recent study found that one in four women experience chronic vulvar pain at some point in their lives, making vulvodynia a very common disorder affecting women and girls of all ages and ethnicities.
The good news is that she made sounds decisions about getting pierced and wrote to me about her highly successful VCH piercing:

I received an interesting email from a woman who is interested in a genital piercing, but had concerns about whether a VHC would affect her preferred style of masturbation:
I wanted to thank you for maintaining your website as a really informative resource on genital piercings.
I want a stimulating piercing and have been told I'm not a triangle candidate but could get a VCH. I like to masturbate by rubbing the shaft of my clitoris through my hood - have your clients reported that it's harder to reach the clit shaft if there's jewelry there?
Thanks so much! D.

I received a message with some photos from a woman who had received a Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing, but she was disappointed with it. She sought the piercing to enhance her sexual pleasure, and she was not experiencing any added enjoyment or sensations. I saw the photo, and this was my comment:

I received the following message from someone interested in viewing my web page in another language:
I would like to print your webpage out (with photos) in Spanish. Is that possible? I have a female friend who would like to have her clitoris pierced, but she doesn't know English. She would very much be interested in the content of your information. HELP? R.
If you go to this page http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings (or any page of my site) and look at the tool bar across the bottom of the browser, in addition to links to my Facebook page, Twitter page , and YouTube channel, one of the options will say "Translate." Click that and then select the language of your choice, and click on it.
Naturally, the translations won't be perfect, especially since the vocabulary for this topic is rather specialized--but it should help to make the content understandable.
In addition to the American English in which it is written, a translation of my website is available in the following languages: Chinese, Dutch, British English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish!
Thanks for your interest.

I was recently interviewed about body modification (for a school project) and I will share with you what I had to say on the subject:
Q: In your experience, how has body modification changed over the years since you started compared to now? Is it more complex and safe or is it going downhill for lack of better words?
A: Body piercing has undergone a truly explosive revolution since I became involved. After a long history among tribal peoples followed by years of obscurity at the fringes of Western society, body piercing has now achieved massive worldwide popularity in contemporary culture. For an amazing education about the development of the modern body piercing industry, read my former employer/mentor Jim Ward's revealing book, Running the Gauntlet.

I received this message from a woman who got a "triangle" piercing done in NYC, and it was nowhere near where a triangle should be placed:
I just got this piercing done at a pretty reputable studio in NYC. But after reading up (even more) and seeing even more pics online, I'm wondering if it was placed too low? Would you please see the pic attached and give me your professional opinion? Thanks!! I wish you were near, but I felt confident in the piercer I ended up choosing locally :-)
