Here, three anonymous women and one anonymous man talk about nipple and genital piercings. Woman A: I have a clitoral hood piercing lengthways, not horizontal. Woman B: I have both of my nipples pierced.
My girlfriend and I have had sex, and up until about two months ago, everything was ok, no problems, but then we were having sex and I felt a really sharp pain in my penis. We both had a look afterwards, because the pain had gone away, and I realised I had ripped my foreskin slightly. This time, everything was ok, but a few weeks ago, it happened again, and then last week, the pain was even stronger!
Whether you use latex male condoms or female condoms, they are both very effective in preventing HIV and many other STDs when used the right way every time. Condoms may prevent the spread of other STDs, like the Human Papillomavirus HPV, genital or venereal warts or genital herpes, only when the condom covers the infected areas or sores. To find out if you might have an STD, visit your doctor or clinic as soon as you can.

Mars is on course to become the fifth ringed planet in the solar system according to astronomers, who claim that its mini moon, Phobos, will one day disintegrate into a hoop of dust and rubble. The small ball of rock is spiralling inexorably down towards Mars; when the tidal forces become too strong to withstand, Phobos will be ripped apart to leave a huge ring of material, much like that seen around Saturn, researchers say. The act of cosmic violence would make Mars the first rocky world in the solar system to sport a ring, the others being the gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
I have a friend who has had affairs with a lot of married men, and she says the reason she even talked to them in the first place was because not one wore a wedding ring. But men who choose to go bandless insist they are doing it for a more innocuous reason than adulterous intentions: an unwillingness to be publicly defined by their marital state. They want to be seen as people before they are seen as married, which presumes that one cannot be both.
Yet as clothing waists crawled higher and higher, the belly rings faded away, but the holes remained. Here, 17 things only women who once had belly piercings will remember. Somehow getting your belly pierced was the sexiest thing you could do back in the day.
The hymen is a thin piece of mucosal tissue that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It forms part of the vulvaor external genitaliaand is similar in structure to the vagina.

Along with recent reports that Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett,and the guy who plays Gollum are also Hobbit-ready, it would seem that the band, as they say, is really getting back together. For most ofMcKellen kept us guessing about his involvement in the Lord of the Rings prequel the way some actors keep us guessing about their sexuality. Get over it!
The dad-of-four had jumped down from a 6'6" fence and claims he only realised his wedding band had been caught when he noticed his ring finger was still on top of the barrier. It was the first time he had taken his ring off since getting married on December 24 - but found himself as the butt of jokes from pals who teased it gave him an excuse not to wear it. After ripping away the skin, nail and top of his finger on March 31, Paul put the dismembered finger in an empty Mr Kipling Angel Slice plastic cake box and drove himself to hospital.
