Are Tongue Rings Sexy or Freaky? (Suck It or Not)

0 Posted by - July 6, 2009 - Uncategorized

To put it bluntly, any time I see a girl with a tongue ring or face piercing I think of oral sex. I’m sorry, in my book that’s just a clear sign of freakdom. I take one look at that silver stud (or any other color) in a woman’s mouth and I imagine her being down for some Lil’ Kim action where she’ll “throw lips to the shit and handle it like a real b*tch.” Sorry, I think you’re a freak—Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

No, I’m not saying all women with piercings are loose or anything like that, but I just get a strong feeling that they’re more in tune with their sexuality. The same goes for a chick with that little spot underneath her lip (what’s that area called again?) pierced. Seeing that makes me think, “Uh, huh, she’s a freak. Shit, she might even like girls.” Sorry, I think you’re a freak—Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Tongue rings raise even more freak flags for me. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this, but most men probably think the same thing when they see a woman playing with a stud in her tongue: If she was wild enough to get her tongue pierced, she must plan on using it in some “fellatious” way. Sorry, I think you’re a freak—Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Why is it that women with tongue rings can’t resist playing with it in public? Come on, you know every man within eyeshot is watching. Do you really have to sit there twirling it around like that? You must get off on the attention or something. Please don’t say it’s for show because any woman with a tongue ring and says she doesn’t use it is a bald faced liar. Sorry, I think you’re a freak—Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Now dudes with any of the above piercing are just as bad, if not worse. The only difference is I don’t think you’re a freak; I think you’re gay. Far be it for me to be homophobic or a homoaccusiastic, but oral piercings look suspect on guys. Remember when Tyrese first came out and had that under-the-lip piercing like Ne-Yo? Sorry, homie, that shit looks mad gay—Not that anything is wrong with that.

I gave crazy side-eye to my twin Malcolm Jamal Warner, who had a tongue ring a few years back. FAIL! It gave him a real heavy lisp that sounded and looked like Antoine Meriwether and Blaine Edwards from that In Living Color skit, Men on Films. Basically, if you’re not a male stripper, escort, porn star or gay man, I don’t think any dude should have oral piercing of any kind. Sorry, homie, that shit looks mad gay—Not that anything is wrong with that.

If you or your friends have an oral piercing and wonder why I keep staring, now you know. Maybe I’m wrong about my assumption. Perhaps you’re just an everyday person who has normal missionary sex with the lights out, but as long as you have that metal stud in or around your mouth I’m gonna think you’re a freak (or gay)—Not that anything is wrong with that.

Honestly, what’s the first thought that comes to mind when you see someone with a tongue ring? Have you ever dated someone with a tongue ring or had one yourself? Did it enhance or hinder kissing? Was there a difference on oral acrobatics? Ladies, do you find tongue rings on a guy sexy? What would you do if your boyfriend came home with his tongue pierced? Fellas, do you think women with tongue rings are sexy? Do you think girls with tongue rings are freakier? Would you approve of your wife getting a tongue ring?

Speak your piece…

    Wow you’re on a roll..for getting things wrong. I personally have a tongue piercing and definitely am not a freak. I got it during my freshmen year of college (18 years old), just to get something peirced because I could….not because I felt the need to deep throat a guy. It was an act of independance, not an act of my inner freak.
    1.No I dont have a lisp (only until the swelling went down).
    2. I dont think about or care how guys view me.
    3. I don’t play with it in public
    4. Half the time people dont even notice I have one.
    5. Guys don’t even notice
    For further reference don’t judge a girl by her peircing.

    • rachel

      This is dead on. I was 18 as well when i got mine done (as an act of freedom and a celebration of my independence also) and had absolutely nothing to do with me trying to please men in any fashion. I got it done with one of my good friends who has one too, and hardly anyone notices mine or hers. This article only further promotes the falsehoods of tongue piercings, or any piercings in general. Way to clump us all together. 

      • kirstie

        lol me and my best friend got ours done together out of freedom too, but we were 16. i know more whores with no piercings at all than ones with them :P

    • Andooooo

      Weellll first of all (coming from a guy, drunk I might add) guys do notice but a lot would rather not say anything. Having a tongue pierced is very noticeable, unless you rarely talk. I think out of the hundreds of people I’ve met with one, only like 5 or so I didn’t notice the first time I met them. However, I think they are nice :)

    • M.18

      i got my tongue pierced because it looks cool not because im dirty or a freak. i also live at home and have had my tongue pierced for 8 months and my mom has no idea i have it.

    • Teagan

      About four months, I decided to get my tongue pierced because I liked the way that they looked; straight up. And to be completely honest, unless I make a very obvious show of it, no one even really notices that I have it done — hell I don’t even think that my boss knows I have it. I for one, happen to love my piercing. ‘Cause hell if people like yourself look down on a tongue piercing, imagine what those in the corporate world would think if I got half of the piercings that I would LOVE to get — I wouldn’t even have a job. Thanks so much for lumping us all together — piercings and tattoos are signs of individuality, perhaps you need to learn to accommodate a little easier. Not everyone with piercings are ‘freaks’ or ‘hooligans’ or whatever other word that you want to use.

  • ms.nina

    I have a home girl that got her tongue pierced when she turned 17, but had never given head until she was like 24, (she had never even really given her man a hand job either) she thought me and the rest of her girls that were openly in love with our mens’ dicks were crazy and freaky (but not in a good way) For some the tongue ring is about appearances only, I myself would never do it because have beautiful full lips and straight white teeth that get a whole lot of unnecessary attention…

  • toya

    I was telling my friend earlier that I wanted to get my tounge pierced but she quickly shot that idea down and cursed me out…so I changed my mind I will just keep that as a fantasy unfulfilled …however I don’t think I would openly date a guy with a tounge ring we can just be buddies

  • Spinster

    Wanted to get a tongue ring as a teen but my mother would’ve killed me. :-| Now as an adult, thought about it off and on but more than likely wouldn’t go through it. Not for any reason in particular, just don’t see the point anymore (for me to get it).

    Never dated anyone with one. Wouldn’t be sure what to think of someone (trying to date me) having one.

  • http://thoughtsof100k.blogspot.com 100K

    I fully agree with NWSO.

  • http://myspace.com/nexus_da_underdawg da ThRONe

    There are going be a few people who its only a fashion statement too. But for most people its a sign of freakdom(and a real turn-on IMO).

    Im with you 100% Ans when I see a chick with any oral piercing im think oral sex and when i see a dude im thinking this nigga gay*Riley Freeman stlye*

  • Elle

    Back when I was a teen, piercings were the thing to have, just like those kinds of tatts that are nowadays called “tramp stamp”. Having one or both was more of a fashion statement than it was a form of expression. And if it wasn’t a fashion statement, I’d venture to say that many folks got it as a form of rebellion.

    I wanted both, but didn’t get either. And I am glad I didn’t because both seem corny to me now.

    Maybe this is a men’s thing, but I don’t think women or men with piercings are freakier than others. Actually, it’s always the quiet and conservative ones who have whips and chains in their closet. The folks who appear freaky or supersexy for whatever reason tend to be completely average in the bedroom.
    Ok, wait: People who have pierced nipples or clits/penises seem more freaky to me.

    Oh yea, and men with tongue piercings = suspect. Back when I was staying in Cali everybody and their momma was getting their tongue pierced and used neon colored piercings at that. WTH? And the dudes thought it was sexy. I shot down quite a few egos in 2000.

  • July Got Nairas, Pulas, Rands

    I have a tongue ring and honestly when I got it the last thing on my mind was giving head. I did get it as an act of rebellion more than anything else, I would have gotten a tattoo but I wasn’t brave enough for something so permanent. I don’t think I am any freakier just coz of a piece of metal in my mouth.

    I have to say that when I was getting the piercing done the chick who did it kept repeating like a broken record that I had to wait X amount of time for the piercing to heal before giving any dude head or else my tongue would fall off LOL. Guess she has seen some rather interesting things to keep repeating it over and over again to me.

    Oh and I do play with my tongue ring but only when I am nervous or thinking hard about something and I do it unconsciously, same as somebody would bite their nails when they are nervous. It isn’t an advertisement for Superhead treatment.

  • http://www.intromagonline.com aaviana

    I once dated a man with a tongue ring. He got it after lost a bet.I liked kissing him cause I loved playing with it. I still thought it was gay. The thought of sexual things that can be done with the ring will always be someones first thought when they see or meet someone with a tongue piercing. Its a natural reaction. If you have one you use it in pleasuring your partner no matter what you say. I still think that a man with one is suspect. I’d rather see women with the piercing because they look sexier.

  • Karmaizadiva

    I also have a tongue piercing…and when i got it done giving head was the farthest thing on my mind. I actually did it because i was idle one day and needed somthing different. Yes persons do look at me weird eventually when they find out but frankly i dont care about what other persons think as persons without oral piercings are doing the same freaky things or even worst so who is anyone to judge me…and even if i was a freak i dont do it in public.
    Some persons didnt find out until months or a year after i got it done so this proves its not a public show when i speak or play with it.
    To men who think that its an invitation to treat they are always in for a rude awakening when they realise i dont get “down” like that.
    SO NWS dont be so quick to judge females with them as some only do as a fashion statement.
    As for dating a man with one…naww dont think i would…only because i normally go for the introverted type.

  • http://mzvirgo.com/ MzVirgo

    I have one, it hurt like hell for a few weeks and it sounded like I had a speech impediment lol!

    But seriously, people who think that girls who have tongue rings are giving all this head must either not be receiving enough head or not performing it often for them to judge other people.

    Some people barely notice my tongue ring and when they do, they just ask, “why?” it’s because I wanted to. It had nothing to do with enhancing oral sex, etc.

    As far as men with tongue rings or lip piercings, or even a nipple ring, that is questionable though.

    This also reminds of when nose rings were in, if you got it done on the right (or left?) side, you were gay, etc.

    Great post!

  • Ms. Royalty

    I use to want to get my tongue pierced but for the reasons you mentioned above, I decided not too. Also because I work in a professional setting. It’ just not appropriate. For me, whenever I meet someone with an oral piercing, I find myself staring into their mouths and not listening to what it is they have to say. Another reason why I decided against it.

    I dated a guy who came home one day and had his tongue pierced. This was a while ago and when I wanted to get mines pierced as well. I thought it was sexy. I don’t now. It took some getting use to with the kissing at first but you get use to it. When used in other places, it was a turn on. It was a different sensation than I was use to.

    I think that having a tongue pierced is like openly sayin or giving the impression that you like giving head. Regardless if you do or not, it’s the sterotype that has been assigned to it. Hey, it’s life.

  • Angel

    I have a tongue piercing and I love it. I got it when I was in Atlanta for my 29th birhtday. At the time I just wanted it done to do something completely unlike what I would normally do. But the response Ive gotten from men is about half and half. Half like it and the other half can do without it. One guy I dated told me that he like kissing me with the piercing but oral he liked for me to do it without the piercing. But I’ve also been told that the visusal of giving oral with my piercing is very erotic. I do play with my tongue ring but only because it’s a habit. Most people wont notice I have one. My boss just realized I had one and I’ve been with the company for a little over 2 years! Like I said I love my piercing. It makes me feel incredibliy sexy

  • MZJON3S

    Very interesting…
    I have my tongue pierced and i actually wasnt having sex when i got it.It was my first piercing and was something different at the time and the whole freakiness factor wasnt into play yet….i dont think
    Mine is not at the tip of my tongue, so i have ppl that dont even know i have it ( like my boss, my clients) i dont play with mine in public, really dont see a reason too, but i do bite down on the barbell when im nervous or pist. when ppl do see it, i have to go thru all the freak questions about it, no problem, im a freak, i’ll admit it, but thats why i got my other piercings. my tongue was just an innocent bystander.

  • k-Love

    Well when i did have my tongue pierced, I had it for one reason. And yes I was and am a freak, its just not on public display anymore. I got hella attention from me and that’s what I wanted at the time. Then I met my son’s father who was not having it. Now that I am climbing the corporate laddder, there is no place for a tongue ring, unless I want to reach the top even faster…But i’ll pass, i wont let my inner freak dictate my success.

  • BADbrownbunny

    I totally agree with NWSO…and I know my cousin’s girlfriends all have tongue rings….

    I ain’t knockin’ their style but he never keeps them for long…..Find Em’ Freak Em’ n Leave Em’ is his motto and he’s a grown man

  • MizzRenea

    I got my tongue pierced when i was 18, half as a independent thing (however the tattoo took care of that lol) and half because i am and always will be a freak. I have to add i have an oral fedish i guess you could say for as long as i could remember. Since i was a baby (and yes i’ve asked my mom) i’ve always had something in my mouth(that sounds bad but its true). I very rarely play with my ring in public and mainly cause i forget its there. The ladies at work didnt even know i had it for the first 6 months. However when i’m out (clubbin, parting or with my man) and you want that “look” then yes the tongue ring comes in handy. It also becomes part of your outfit too, i try to make sure if i’m going out or if its something special then i change the color of my ring. And yes men definately notice when you’ve change the color or style especailly when ya’ll are dating!
    As for dating a man that had one i did for a little while. The kissing was a little different and we had to get used to it because we both had one, but when i came to going down he could definately do something with it lol. So as for a man being gay and having a tongue ring, being a woman its WAY better especially if they know what to do with it.

  • Peajez

    Its funny that you bring up the tongue ring, I wanted one when I was in high school too but chickened out and I also wanted a tat which I also never got,for me I just thought it was cute, not for anything else. But I do understand the stigma. Like someone said, it’s life

  • jenda

    A lot of my friends got those piercings 10-15 years ago. I dated a few guys that had them and I find them very sexy and fun! Back in the day, I thought people with them were maybe a little wilder than me.

    Now that I know so many people who have had them for so long, I just think about their dental bills! Ha. That constant clicking on the teeth wears down the enamel. I know people with gum damage, tooth damage and tongue damage. SO. I’m glad I didn’t get one and I’m glad my husband didn’t get one; but not because of the freak factor, rather all about the dental copays and yearly deductibles we aren’t paying. None of that is sexy or fun.

    P.S. I know that not everybody has problems like this, you can get acrylic posts and stay disciplined about care and not tap it on your teeth or rub at your gums, just a lot of people I know ended up with problems a decade or more later.

  • EmotionalFunk

    I dated a used to date a guy with a tongue ring. It really wasn’t anything special in my opinion like no added extra effects because he had one. I didn’t even notice he had one for the longest time either so that was cool. I hate when people are always playing with it but I wanted on and never got one. I was to chicken to pierce my tongue. I’m glad I didn’t because of the dental damage it can ’cause too like jenda mentioned. Had a eyebrow piercing a couple of times, loved it and would love a nipple piercing too but I’m too chicken. Some areas I am just scared to pierce no matter how much I love the look.

  • ChiChi

    That Lil Wayne picture just ruined this post for me. LOL

    • me

      I agree

  • July Got Nairas, Pulas, Rands

    I know its life but I hate the fact that I had to get the clear plastic ring once I got into the corporate world to wear during the week coz of the perceptions people have about tongue rings. Just like I had to cut my locks just to be taken seriously. Having a piercing doesn’t impact the quality of my work in any way shape or form.

    Sorry for the rant but it irritates me to no end.

    • Sistren

      I work on Wall Street and rock my locs proudly. I’ve actually noticed a lot more dreads in the corporate world in the past few years. You should consider coming back ;-).

  • in DC

    So … I actually got mine pierced years ago to enhance what I was already doing well ;)

    I actually think it worked against me so when the back came out one night I let it close up and now I work my magic with no kind of obstacles. LOL!

    And yes … dudes with it should never holla at me.

  • Avah Royal

    I didn’t even know people still get tongue piercings. When I see I tounge ring on a chick I think “Oh that’s sexy”. When I see one on a man I think “Oh that’s gay”.
    I’ve never dated a man with a tongue ring becuase I think its gay. I had a tongue ring for about 4 years right after I got out of high school.
    Nope, I didn’t really enhance kissing. I just got more kisses because I always met guys who used the line “I never kissed a girl with a tongue ring” LOL! I always feel for that! Sometimes cuz I wanted to.
    It definitely made me wilder when it came to oral. My boyfriend actually used to ask me to take it off when I went I blessed the mic. I don’t think it was because he didn’t like it. I was because he wanted a different feeling.
    If my boyfriend came home with his tongue pierced, I would make him leave again and come back with it not pierced.

    I think people with tongue piercing are definitely freakier, but it doesn’t define the freak in you. I dont hvae one anymore and I’m surely a freak. HIS freak. LOL

  • litabia

    I got my tongue pierced when I was 18 and I didn’t start giving head until I was 24 which was a few years ago. Believe me guys thought because I had a tongue ring that automatically they get head from umm no. I don’t even like to kiss let known put my mouth on your penis. I got it cause some crazy white chick paid for me to get mine done with her. So I said why not. Not saying there is anything wrong with being a freak or gay but to simply think that because a piercing is wrong imo.

  • http://www.brandonsaintrandy.wordpress.com Brandon St. Randy

    My ex had one. I didn’t even notice it for a while. As far as the head, I think the person’s ability is much more of a factor than their hardware. It didn’t make much difference to me either way. My Mom did notice though, and she started asking me all these inappropriate ass questions.

    “Is she into S&M or something?”
    “Does that do anything for you, you know, sexually?”

    Just cause I’m grown, doesn’t mean we’re buddies, Mother.

  • LondonChick

    ROFL @ Brandon St. Randy’s mum. ;-) Aaah Bless!!!

  • Mz. VooDoo

    OK…I DON’T THINK A GUY IS “GAY” IF HE HAS A TONGUE PIERCING. HE IS MORE SEXIER TO ME AND I WOULD LOVE TO GET WITH HIM TO FEEL THAT TONGUE PIERCING…:), SO I DONT AGREE WITH (IN DC). I HAVE NO PIERCING BESIDES MY EARS, BUT AM WANTING A NIPPLE RING. WOULD I BE “GAY” IF I GOT ONE? I HEARD ONLY GAY WOMEN GET THEIR NIPPLES PIERCED. I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN AND A TURN ON FOR THAT MEN THAT LOVE “BREAST”. WHAT DO YOU THINK ANS?

  • http://youspeakonit.blogspot.com miss_eboni

    this post is nothing new so im not even sure why some are acting like this convo hasnt been brought up in every locker room around america.

    I have my tongue pierced, YES! Do I give head, YES! So by many people they will find some way to correlate this into meaning that for the masses, if you have a tongue ring you are automatically a head-giver. This couldnt be further from the truth. They are completely seperate from each other. I’ve gotten my clit (well, hood) pierced before, so what does that mean? Nothing. I got both done because I am bored and love piercings. I know plenty of girls with tongue rings who are repulsed by a penis. You know? if you assume just cuz a girl has her tongue pierced that you are goin to get head, then be prepared for the consequences of blue balls– gettin urself stimulated possibly for nothing

    @Beth

    Thanx for your continued love/hate… lol

    Clearly, you missed the first line of the 2nd paragraph where I said/wrote “No, I’m not saying all women with piercings are loose or anything like that, but…”

    Lighten up, I wasn’t calling you out, and like Miss Eboni said, “this post is nothing new so im not even sure why some are acting like this convo hasnt been brought up in every locker room around america.”

    There is a common belief that tongue rings enhance oral sex, you know. Of course it’s not the case for EVERY person, but Like I said/wrote it’s what I think about when I see one.

    1. The lisp was referring to the guys, but you admit that you had a lisp at one point though. Thanx.

    2 & 3. That’s how it should be

    4&5. Guys are people too, so no need to separate them :P

  • http://nwso.net NWSO

    @Mz. VooDoo

    Does a nipple ring make someone a freak?I have no idea. Will I THINK they are? YES. LOL

    Yes, I’ll admit it’s a stereotype etc, but when my boy was dating a girl with nipple rings, they first thing we said in unison was SHE’S A FREAK. Turns out, she was. Does this mean anything? Nope.

    At any rate, I’ve never experienced a nipple ring, but personally I don’t think I’d enjoy it. I just see it getting in the way of the breast and nipple I’m trying to enjoy, but to each his/her own.

  • http://nwso.net NWSO

    @miss_eboni

    Agree with your first part, have no idea why some folks is getting so excited like I invented this MYTH/ STEREOTYPE. Don’t shoot the messenger.

  • litrisha

    Umm yeah the first thing that would come to my mind for both guys and girls are that they would be a little bit more freakier than the average person. If I see a guy I would assume that he was gay(and I might get a cyber debate on this one)because you just don’t see regular guys with tongue rings…..?????? This could be a misconception but that’s what I think. I have never personally dated a guy with a tongue ring before, though I must admit that that would be interesting……(ok now I’m contradicting myself right?)
    I think it’s just time for me to shut my trap on this one!

  • Gethsemia

    There’s is nothing wrong with a tongue ring. I had one. The only thing I didn’t like was an hour after I had it done my tongue swelled up. I actually liked it . When I see other people with piercing in my mind I’m wondering how pain they were in. I don’t about it if they are a freaky person or whatever… I think it’s pretty cool.

  • sweetsexxybrown

    This is so ironic. I just seen a chick in the dressing room on Sat and her nipple was pierced. What were my thoughts? “She’s a freak. Ok hun, do you.” Do I think someone is a freak because they have a piercing? Uuuh, yeah. All my girlfriends, college friends who did it were all definitely freaks. Is being a freak a bad thing? Uuuhhh, no-its a great thing. I’m not sure why everyone is sooo uptight about it. Its not that big of a deal. I fail to believe that some of the people who got the piercings (especially on the tongue and hood) were not thinking of sex when they got it done. Its ok. Embrace your freakdom! Is it a stereotype? Uuh yeah, who cares. You didn’t care when you got the piercing. Why start now. I do not have any piercings other than my ears. Never been interested in any of them. (Maybe only the clit for obvious reasons-but thought, I may forget I have it and snag it on something!) I would not prefer my man to have any piercings. (Except his ears-and I’d rather only one of those as two ears looks gay!)

  • http://www.ajhayes.com A. Jarrell

    I think you’re right, homie, about the girls. I never paid too much attention about guys and the oral rings.

  • rfb.

    I found this post HILARIOUS. Probably because I have a tongue ring haha. I got mine freshman year of college. Not because I wanted to upgrade my dome game, I honestly just wanted one. I don’t walk around tryna entice the male population. Most people that know me don’t even know I have it. Men I date don’t notice until we kiss. I’m not gonna front and act like it doesn’t provide some leverage when im bobble headin…but does that make me a freak? who knows lol.

    In regards to men with tongue rings……back in the day I thought Sisqo’s tongue ring was madd sexy lol but I was 11. Now a days i’d have to say that its not a good look for a straight man to have one. Only dues I know that have them are gay. And they stayyyyyy flickin it around for the world to see lol.

  • Latsyrc41

    Dated a guy with a tongue piercing. It DID give him a more “suspect” feel/look.

    I hated the way it would occasionally hit my teeth when kissing.

    I loved the oral (especially when he chilled it with an ice cube before)…I can still feel that shit.
