My high school gym teacher had her tongue pierced. She hid it really well, but it was a known fact among the students. Sometimes you could see the glint of silver inside her mouth when she talked.
I’ve always secretly wanted to get my tongue pierced, but I don’t think I ever would. First of all I’d be terrified because I’m sure it hurts like a bitch, and second of all it has a lot of skanky connotations attached to it, even though I’ve always found it really sexy.
When you think about it though, what porn star (male OR female) doesn’t have their tongue pierced now-a-days?
I once mentioned my thoughts about getting one to by best girlfriends. Their response: you’re too classy to have a tongue ring. I think a lot of people get it exactly because of all the skanky attributes that come with it, and that’s not something I would want. But I also think it’s a matter of personal taste, and I happen to like how it looks.
I met a girl recently who I talked to for a couple hours before I saw the tell-tale silver flash. I asked her, “Do you have your tongue pierced?” and she stuck out her tongue at me. “Yes.” She didn’t make a big deal out of it and she answered all of my questions. I liked her attitude toward it because she wore it exactly how I would have without unnecessary flaunting. Her tongue ring didn’t define her personality, and I’ve seen that happen with other people. It was just another piece of jewelry.
What do you think? Is having a tongue ring a sign of slutty-ness? Or does it depend on the person?
