Piercings are one way people use body modification to enhance erotic enjoyment – but many of us don’t know quite how it works.

Why people pierce for pleasure.
One of the main reasons for getting pierced, aside from looking cool, is the way piercings can alter how the body feels. Exactly how much this changes depends a lot on where the piercing is done, the gauge of the needle used, the jewellery that’s applied and the individual’s physiology.
In terms of physiology, everyone’s body is different, meaning that how a piercing feels varies person to person. Likewise, a piercing in one spot might slightly increase sensitivity, while a piercing in another spot might not increase sensitively at all. While you can sometimes get a taste of what a piercing might be like, by using play piercings or certain kinds of breast or genital play, the reality is that nine times out of 10, the only way to find out is to just get pierced.
As for needle thickness and jewellery, it depends on the person. Usually, a thin piercing will have a sharper feeling as opposed to the weight and tug, for lack of a better word, that comes with a thicker gauge.
Finally, consider the kind of play that might be done with a piercing. You should always start out gently and slowly work your way up the intensity scale so that you can keep an eye on how your body is reacting over time.
Some people also find that piercings will become less and less sensitive over time. Sensitivity may only be gained back by increasing the amount and style of play or the thickness of the jewellery being used. Again, this is something that varies from person to person.
