I’m a total wuss so while a part of my shivers in delight whilst reading sexy scenes involving protags with piercings, another part of me is cringing because, well… OUCH THAT WOULD SO FUCKING HURT!!
That aside, my first Prince Albert experience can be summed up in two words.
Needless to say that the majority of scenes which have come since cannot hope to compare with the one in which Nate jerks off, playing with pa and all, for his Boy. *fans self*
If that doesn’t convince a reader about the sheer smutty goodness of a pa I have absofuckinglutely no idea what will.
Oh, and if it doesn’t, I’d go see a doctor quick if I were you cos your girly or dangly bits obviously ain’t working right. Just sayin’.
Whoa, I don't think I've yet recovered from seeing a photo of a P.A., which looks like it would be excruciatingly painful for a guy to get! How on earth do you think they manage in the piercing / tattoo parlor? By drinking themselves into an unconscious stupor first?
Got to admit, I haven't yet read a P.A. scene in my foray through m/m fiction. My poor virgin brain remains virginal in this case, at least!
My first introduction to a PA was Sean Michael's Bent. That book has introduced me to a lots of firsts *grin* I liked the explanations in the book… It made me feel slightly better about the procedure, which coming from someone who doesn't have anything pierced is saying something. I keep thinking about getting my ears pierced…
And I haven't met Nate… *write the name of another eBook on the list*
Shame on you Val & Orannia!
My fair captain is a must read!! It is one the first m/m books that I read and I love it.
Nate is to die for and Aiden beyond cute
My first was Willa Okati's In the Strangest Places. I'll be honest, Rack had so much metal in his dick I wasn't sure how he didn't set off detectors in the airport. It was one of the first m/m books I'd read and I was totally freaked, young and innocent though I was. LOL I had to put it aside for a time and kind of steel myself to read it. I was thinking that all that metal could cause tearing. *shrug*
I got over it although I really don't get the whole “getting pierced is a turn on” thing. Nor for tattoos, although I've heard first hand experience of people who get a tingle in their nether regions during tattoos and piercings. I have only had my ears done but I just had a double helix two weeks ago and I was NOT turned on. LOL Feels like your ear is on fire and hurts like a bitch.
I've read some real-life accounts of guys with PAs and it can bleed a fair bit and I don't imagine sex for WEEKS after. I've never had any first hand experience with one so can't say if it adds to the experience or not. I find guiche and other piercings more appealing aesthetically. But I guess what ever works for you.
As for MFC, to be honest it didn't do that much for me because I'm not so much into the D/s thing but I did like Aiden.
Val, imagine googling prince alberts and then having to select a pic. It was… interesting.
They had 'em in Bareback. Have you read that? The protags got 'em as a sign of their commitment for each other… cos nothing says twu wuv like getting a piece of metal shoved through your dick fyi.
Orannia: Bent sure popped a lot of your cherries, didn't it. LOL.
My Fair Captain is sci fi regency. It's a agreat book and the first in a series.
Ingrid: Another Nate fan. Yay! I think there must be a whole bunch of us who had J L Langley as one of our first m/m authors.
Tam: I thought about the character of Rack when I was doing this post. Like you I was a bit about the amount of metal he had in him. I'm not sure I really want to know about things like ladders. It might be TMI for me… if that's possible. LOL.
I like what I've read about piercings like guiches and nipple rings. I think the first guiche I read about was in, you guessed it, a Sean Micheal. Needless to say it was smutty goodness. 🙂
I'll be honest, I've looked up pics of things like ladders just to look and wince. It's like a train wreck, you are forced to look even though you now you shouldn't. LOL
Kris and Ingrid, I actually went ahead and picked up MFC right after making my first comment on this post so here in the near future I'll get down to it and see what it's all about. 🙂
J.L. Langley was one of my first m/m authors, too, but the book happened to be The Tin Star (great read) and I think we just had some sex toys featured and nothing more exotic than that, ha, ha!
And, whoa, I DID read Bareback now that you mention it, Kris, and completely forgot about that piercing detail. I might have been reading super-fast …
Tam: Word. I did the same after reading about corsets in Willa Okati's Wild Hunt. Dear. God. *shudders*
Val, yay to pimpage. 🙂 You'll have to let us know what you think of it, Val. Oh, and I think you'll have a hard time missing the pa in this one. 😉
Do you mean the corset piercings down the back with ribbon.? Yeah, those are freaky. I actually found one of a guy who had something similar on his throat. About 4 on each side and then laced up like a running shoe. LOL I am always sending stuff like that to the kidlet so we can scoff at their foolishness together. She figures people just do it to take the picture then remove the rings. I wouldn't put it past some people.
Tam, those are them. I've also seen some pics of people with them down the sides of their bodies. Ouch.
“You'll have to let us know what you think of it, Val. Oh, and I think you'll have a hard time missing the pa in this one. ;)”
Can't wait! 😉
I do indeed remember that corset thing from Wild Hunt — very creepy!
OH I almost fainted in delight over Nate's piercing!! Can I be the third lover in Nate and Adien's relationship??
Now I want to re-read My Fair Captain. Even when Nate has all that spooge in his beard, I thought it was hot.
After all the comments about My Fair Captain these past few days, I did pick it up, although neither scifi nor Regency are my thing. We'll see!
Also on recommendations (the fisting post), I picked up and read Bad Case of Loving You. I can't remember what type of piercing Matthew add (beyond it NOT being a PA), but dang, that book sure made it sound hot.
Katiebabs chook: I've been rereading so many books over these last few days because of this series. It's been fun revisiting them all.
Chris: You're such a slut. LOL.
I think it was a guiche in Bad Case. Hmmm, not sure. I might have to reread it. *g*
Hope you like MFC!
Love the piercings! Makes the scenes even hotter.
o.m.g. Every time I visit your blog it's a freakin' education. I swear just when I think I'm a well adjusted, sexually liberated vixen, I come here and I need to go suck my thumb or something. LMAO. I just googled prince albert pics. *blink* *blink*. Yeah.
Now this is the kind of stuff I like!
I have a character with a pierced scrotum, otherwise known as a hafada piercing.
JL Langley was one of my firsts too. I heart Nate 🙂 I need a reread of that book…but first Adrien. Must reread to prepare for late Dec 😉
Pierced scrotum…now that seems more painful than a PA.
MsM: Ditto! *g*
Fiction Vixen, LMAO!! I was young and innocent once too. That was before I started reading m/m two years ago. I've had a fast learning curve let me tell you. LOL.
“I just googled prince albert pics. *blink* *blink*. Yeah.”
Tell me about it. I dare you to google guiche next. 😉
KZ: “Now this is the kind of stuff I like!”
Figures. 🙂 I'm going to a more general piercings and tatts post cos I'm interested in picking up a comment that Tam made re: scenes that involve characters getting these things done to them.
Mandi: Just be glad that you never mentioned the J-word.
I actually think that a pierced scrotum isn't as painful as a pa. It's on a par with getting your labia pierced… so I've heard. 😉
An interesting site to visit is tribalectic where people post little blurbs about their experiences getting various piercings, male, female, ears to genitals. Some of them are very funny when talking about getting genital piercings and the little man trying to escape what it knew was coming. LOL But if you want to know what it's like from the receivers perspective it's interesting. I think anything that goes through the skin only (like a guiche or hafada or even a up the length of the penis are far less painful than something that goes through muscle/cartilage like the PA.
Anyway, here are the PA experiences, just beware some come with pictures of the final product.
Bad Case of Loving You had an apadravya.
Sorry! Chris had already mentioned the apadravya.
*How have I missed reading MFC when I read so many other books by JL Langley?*
My first piercing story was Bareback. I love Jake and Tor and when they went to get their PAs I googled it and got an eye opening education.
I love Nate and his PA, that scene was HOT.
Matthew and his Apadravya added to my piercing education so by the time I got to Rack and his multiple piercings I didn't need google anymore.
I really enjoy stories with pierced and tattooed protags, I find them sexy. IRL I've never been with someone who is pierced although my hubby does have a couple of tattoos.
I missed Chris' comment about the apadravya. Heh.
Must have been me glossing over it cos she was again confessing that she was book slut. *rolls eyes* Like that's news.
Tam, again with the interwebz skills. I think a number of these sites will be wondering what's with all the traffic this Thanksgiving weekend. LOL.
H, if you like JL you will LOVE MFC. IMHO, I think it's her best yet.
Lily: “I really enjoy stories with pierced and tattooed protags, I find them sexy.”
Me, too. *sigh* Me, too. *GRIN*
*sticks tongue out at Kris, then crawls off to sleep*
Thanks for the educational chatter these past three days!
I am freaking out here!!!
Tam: OMG I hope to hell that your office IT peeps don't vet the websites that you visit.
Nighty night, Chris sweetie. *Mwah!*
Hey Mumma. Told you this was a very edjumactional blog. You should approve. 🙂
Oh, I do, I do…
Did that sound sincere enough?
Dissed by my own Mumma. 😦
Oh my, I'm all like O_O.
The romance/blog lingo is really something when you're a newby…
I already lost you at PA!! My poor virgin brain can only imagine what a hafada, guiche or apadravya is *blink blink*.
Just got me a copy of Bareback so I better get reading it soon, for educational purpose… *g*
Mumma, I'm sure they would block me at work for most of the sites. LOL Thankfully it's the weekend so I can help educate the poor dear innocents who visit this site.
I actually spent a lot of time at tribalectic last night just looking at the jewelry. They have a lot of very cool stuff made from interesting things like bone, coconut shell and other unusual products besides the usual metals.
Wow Kris, your mumma and you have such a great relationship. The one time my mumma stopped by my blog, she saw my post on wall sex in books and said my blog was porn.
I'm with most people here in that I first read it in My Fair Captain. As that was my first m/m book it was rather a baptism of fire when it came to piercings! It was pretty hot though.
The apadravya piercing in A Bad Case of Loving You made me wince especially as Matthew describes how much it hurt to have done.
Well, considering that my cooter is currently decorated with a mistletoe ring to get ready for the Christmas holiday, I can't very well discriminate.
and I love me some Jeigh Lynn. One of the few authors who has yet to disappoint me with some bullshit story.
oh..and did you not read Chris Owen's BAREBACK? Tor and Jake got pierced. YUM!!
ErotRomReader: Google will become your bff when you first start reading erotica. Believe me. LOL.
I'll be interested to see what you think of Bareback. 🙂
Tam, I've now got an image in my head of you teaching a class about piercings. Too funny.
Katiebabs chook, I am very, VERY lucky cos my Mumma and I are BFs.
We had a very interesting discussion yesterday about where the piercing actually went for a PA. I'm not sure much would shock her now. LOL.
Jenre: I think my initial reaction when reading MFC was “WHAT?! He has a ring through his WHAT?!” When it came to Matthew I was more “Heh. That would hurt.” Desensitisation. 😉
Emmy, didn't you tell me you got pierced whilst on shore leave at a sleepy little seaside town called Perth??? LOL. And you have a mistletoe ring? You iz a cheeky kitteh.
Yep, I read Bareback, but there seems to be a whole heap of peeps who haven't yet and will now be reading it strictly for research purposes.
Jeigh Lynnn? I've not read her. Got a rec?
I will be reading both Bareback and MFC for research purposes. 😀
I'm the oddball here.
I think some PAs look okay, but I'm too practical to get over the sanitary and safety issues.
And the more advanced penile piercings (apadravya, etc.) just freak me the fuck out. O_O
Some men have to pee sitting down because of their piercings. And you know men are filthy creatures, so you can be sure they rarely clean the things. And just think about all the crusty sex cooties! EWWW!!
I love tattoos, but I'm just not much of a piercing person.
I KNOW…it's shocking that my pervitude has limits.
“And just think about all the crusty sex cooties! EWWW!!”
ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE ME THROW UP??? Bloody. Hell.
“I KNOW…it's shocking that my pervitude has limits.”
It's fucking unbelievable is what it is. What with Chris not actually succumbing to the glory that is Black Wade I'm certain that 'hail, fire and blood' will be falling at any minute.
Or at least a flood of biblical proportions. 😉
Cooter juice! Ass mucus! The occasional fleck of…er…
As I am a [somewhat] narrow-minded and [relatively] inexperienced American, even the idea of an uncut penis doesn't sit well with me (because I doubt many men clean that area very well).
So piercings are doubly freaky. Plus the idea of pee spraying out the side of the hole makes me laugh. 🙂
Cooter juice! Ass mucus! Pee spraying out the side of the hole.
You crack me up. 🙂
Chris: That's not a metaphor is it? Cos, you know, the context and all.
*takes Bobby Michaels off Xmas pressies for Jen*
Lily, don't encourage her!
OMG you better not get me Bobby Michaels for Christmas. His books contain my most dreaded fear: jockstraps! LICKING of jockstraps! Licking of DIRTY jockstraps! The shame, the horror!
Not only jockstraps but cheese. *waggles eyebrows*
Next in the first series: Jockstrap sniffers and the men who love them.
Katiebabs chook, are you suggesting that I might deliberately do a post that would offend our Jen?? I'm shocked!
Y'all are disgusting. I'll never come here again!
See you tomorrow, Jen! 😉
