In which we discussed nipple piercings


Sometimes I have the most interesting conversations with people and they’re completely unexpected and totally out of my realm of knowledge.  Yesterday, Kevin and I were at a Memorial Day cookout and another couple was telling a story.


The husband had recently had a meal with his niece and somehow the conversation of nipple rings came up.  I know right? I can’t even imagine having this conversation with my niece but apparently, his niece made a comment about a woman at the other table and that comment somehow led her to say “her boobs had rejected her nipple rings.”


Now this guys’ point was that he didn’t know that his niece had nipple rings (why would he) and other funny things about the conversation but I was astonished that nipple rings were rejected.


Me:      I wonder if it’s a common thing to reject a nipple ring?


Him:    I have no idea


Me:      I believe this is why Google was invented.  We will have to check it out.


So I Googled “do nipple piercings reject” and you know what, there was a load of Google searches on the subject.  What I learned is that nipple rings DO get rejected fairly often and to make sure that doesn’t happen, you should probably use a Barbell piercing instead of a ring.


Honestly, the thought of having a “barbell” through my nipple is totally unappealing but it did lead to an interesting conversation between the 10 of us on “can you breastfeed with a nipple piercing” and if so, how?


So of course I had to Google that and it turns out that once your piercing is established you can indeed breast feed with a nipple piercing but you DO HAVE TO TAKE THE PIERCING OUT FIRST which makes perfect sense because wouldn’t that really hurt a baby sucking on a piercing.


It’d be sort of like fishing and the baby was the fish with a hook stuck in his mouth right?


That lead us down a whole other path when Brian, (the guy telling the story), pointed out that he felt sorry for the “husband and/or boyfriend” of the gal and then we all cracked up because seriously; what an altruistic guy caring about whether this gals significant other could suck on her nipples because of her nipple piercing.


So, that was my Memorial Day conversation, what was yours???

    Damn, I was on my way home from Ohio on Memorial Day. Your picnic sounds like a whole lot more fun.

    And that leaves aside the number of NERVE ENDINGS in the nipples. Yowza

    I’ll be the one to say it – supposedly nipple piercings can feel incredibly good when aroused appropriately and in-the-moment. I’m sure they hurt originally, but I’ve heard that doesn’t last.

    I can confirm that they get rejected pretty easily. Adios left nip ring. In the shower. Out of the blue.

    And, to reassure you ladies, it’s done more through the areola, not so much the tip of the nip. It actually didn’t hurt.
