Piercings can represent a person’s personality in many different ways. The placement of the piercing(s), the size, shape, and the jewelry all help define that person’s individuality a little more. Some people like to push their bodies to limits they never thought they could reach or handle. Body modifications help them achieve this goal.
Most body modification enthusiasts enjoy stretching or gauging their piercings to larger sizes. This could be for a number of reasons. One reason could be that they want to see how far they can push their bodies to the max limit. Another could have to do with their individuality. The need to stand out in a crowd, personal preferences as far as the way they want to appear, or even sexual desires may also play a role in the decision to stretch or gauge their piercing.
The Most Common Body Piercings:
One of the most common piercings to gauge is the ear lobe. After the ear has been pierced and completely healed it can be stretched to astonishing sizes. There are different ways to gauge the ears. Tapers are very popular. These are spike like body jewelry
that come in a number of different sizes, used to gradually stretch the piercing. Another way to gauge is by using weights. Once the gauged piercing has healed, adding weights can help stretch it to greater size. “S” hooks are usually used to add the weights to the piercing.
Weights are not just used to help stretch piercings to larger sizes. Some men who practice ball stretching also enjoy adding weights to their ball weights for more pleasure or for better results. Some ball weights are specifically designed to accommodate added weights. For instance, a “Parachute Ball Stretcher” is designed so that weights can be added to the chains that are attached to the soft leather “parachute”. There are different sizes and shapes of weights that can be added to satisfy the individual’s needs.
Adding on weights to a labia piercing is not unheard of either. Women with labia piercings find that adding the weights to be very arousing and visually stimulating. The weights seem to increase the sensitivity for some women, making this to be a very fun activity. For those who are into the BDSM scene you can also use the weights in part of these practices. Being used during a bondage sessions and allowing your partner to add weights to the labia piercing can prove to be very erotic to both parties involved.
