New Piercing

Posted by – October 22, 2007

I’m pleased as punch that I got a chance – right after my keynote at Fantasia Fair – not only to meet the Bearded Lady of Provincetown, but to get her to stretch my previous ear piercings so that I could wear these lovely new omegas I bought in her shop.

She tells me that I can make them bigger in a few months, too. Betty’s starting to worry.

If you’re coming here after Fantasia Fair, do remind me of the resources I said I would post. I know some (a lot) of them are probably about sex, so you might want to start by browsing the posts marked s.e.x. on this blog.

    Piercings are cool! I’ve a handful myself: both earlobes, both nipples, belly button, and scrotal sack. Interestingly, the first thing I ever had pierced was one of my nipples, way back in 1991; even more interestingly, the thing that inspired me to get that done was ‘Silence of the Lambs’; the Buffalo Bill character from that was the first person I’d ever seen sporting a pierced nipple (the first person I’d ever seen sporting any kind of body piercing for that matter, if you don’t count nose piercings).

    Helen, hope the pain subsided. Nice walking with you and Betty and talking about Kauai and trying to get the 2 of you to Hawaii to speak. I will keep you posted on those efforts. Thanks for the wonderful talk at Fan Fare and for the first book. I read it on the plane and must say I think it should be mandatory reading for all trans (people). Aloha Paula

    Paula, the pain has gone away. They can be a little tender when I wake up, but that can happen with any earrings (in my experience). They’re healing quite nicely, too.

    & Yes, if the opportunity ever comes up, of course we’d come to Hawaii. *of course*

    hope your trip home wasn’t too taxing.
