assist their self-image,
and that someone putting all kinds of effort into his or her looks will most likely have nothing to do with my opinion.
There are all kinds of reasons why people try so hard to look like something greater than they are when they wake up in the morning.
I can accept that.
What I will never be able to accept is any rationale for creating
holes in oneís skin in order to insert large pieces of unsightly stainless steel. Seriously, what is with body piercing?
Is it to look cool? If so, strike one! You donít look cool at all. You look like Satanís court jester. That title might sound cool, but when you get a look at the actual job description, youíll probably start padlocking your belt shut and sleeping with one eye open at all times.
Is it a personal statement of individuality
and a flip of the bird to the man? If so, that would normally
be strikes two and three, but since the last one is a 3rd-strike fowl (the bird, get it?), you get a freebie. It would only be a statement
of individuality if it hadnít been done to death since the early 90s, and the man is more than happy
with you for demolishing your economic viability by looking like a circus freak after a nailbomb attack. There are few things the man likes better than the divide
between haves and have-nots getting wider on its own.
Is it supposed to be a sexual ornament
or sexual enhancement? I donít care if I beaned the batter on that one. Itís still strike three and youíre out. Iíve never had a problem with sexual performance, but Iíll be damned if I could get it up for anyone with a large facial piercing or a body piercing. If the most beautiful woman in the world sent me her sex tape, I wouldnít even click on the thumbnail if I thought I spied a belly button ring. No way.
If you believe that having metal
implants is somehow going to make sex more pleasurable, youíre doing it wrong.
