Living in both worlds…

Subcision is one of my oldest BME friends as well as being the second person I ever met into surgical genital modifications (the first being Shawn).  When I first got interested in subincisions there was not much information available aside from J’s old BME interview. Entering the world of surgical genital modification as a young hetersoexual male was quite unusual, and quite intimidating at the time. However,  Subcision and J were the two guys I could go to  with questions about the procedure and life after this modification, and they never once  made me feel uncomfortable.

Since those conversations almost a decade ago, Subcision has not stop modifying his penis. Pretty much as soon as one mod heals (or sometimes before) he is going back into his penis with more piercing, tattooing or surgical mods. He is a prime example of someone who lives quite well in the “normal” world as a clean cut man in a tie while, unbeknownst to his colleagues, he is hiding quite the array of body mods under his clothes.

Scratch A Lover


Hey, you all know the rules—Wednesday is Wangday here on ModBlog! Today’s entry into the pantheon is the music aficionado you see above, sporting an 11 mm. Prince Albert piercing through which he has threaded his standard issue Apple iPod earbuds and then proceeded to Midori himself nicely up with the rest of the cord. (For the completists, the iPod itself seems to be playing Finger Eleven’s “I’ll Keep Your Memory Vague.”) Warning: Neither BME nor Apple officially endorse this use of Apple products, and such use may void one’s warrantee.

My Midnight Labors


You begged. You pleaded. You dropped to your knees and prayed for it. (Or maybe you just mentioned it twice in the comments.) Whatever the case may be, your calls have been answered, and nobody is happier than we are to have Casual Fridays back! Today, as you can see, is a gentleman with a rather intense deep shaft piercing caught swingin’ in the breeze. And by “swingin’ in the breeze,” of course, I mean, “in possession of a deadly weapon.”

But Wait, There’s More


Oh, you didn’t know? Wednesday is Wangday here at ModBlog! And here is one industrious member, fresh out of his MFA program (probably?), showing off some fine technique and just drawing himself a self-portrait for his portfolio. It’s a little rough, sure, but hey, art is, like, subjective, you philistines.

Stately Barges


Let’s wrap things up for the day, ModBloggers, with a fine slice of piercing history. Ron writes in:

Here are two self portraits of my piercings. One nipple (left) was done by East Coast Al in the early ’90s, the other nipple (right) was done by the late Mick Noland. My P.A. was done by Mad Jack at a tattoo show in K.C. in the mid ’90s.

Hope you guys like the pics. They are of me, taken by me, and I am well over 18.

Door to Door and Right on Time


Look, if you’ve been reading BME for a while, you know there are all sorts of good reasons to get genital piercings. They look good. They feel good. You can hide candy in the holes. They make your junk breathable on hot summer days. They open up your sonic options immensely when you’re playing the spoons (*ping*). They’re conversation-starters at urinals. They render keychains useless, thereby saving you untold thousands of dollars every year. BUT, did you know they can also be valuable tools for self-defense? It’s true! At least, that’s ostensibly what M. up there is going for with his line of large-gauge scrotal piercings, stretched to be worn as an organic knuckle-duster. Wouldn’t want to get punched with one of those!

A close-up of this vicious weaponry, after the jump.

The Amber of the Moment


Tam checks in with this chilling photo featuring him doing battle with nature’s Chinese Finger Trap. He’s not in a hurry to get out, though, so maybe don’t rush to get the tub of Crisco just yet.

(Click through for the whole megillah, obviously.)

Hey Fellas, Got a Genital Piercing? Have Some Money [UPDATED]


UPDATE: Sorry everyone, the university has been overwhelmed with responses and needs a little while to sort them out! If they’re taking more applications, we’ll let you know.

No, really, it seems that easy:

The Department of Applied Health Science at Indiana University is conducting a research study designed to collect information on men’s sexual health and genital piercings. We are looking for men who have had their genitals pierced to participate in a phone interview that will be audio-recorded. The time commitment will be approximately 45 minutes and you will receive a $25 VISA gift card for completing the interview. In order to receive the gift card a name and mailing address is required.

To be eligible for this study, you must be at least 18 years of age, speak and understand English, and have had your genitals pierced.

If you are interested in participating please e-mail us with the following information at: xxxxxxxxx

- Your first name, or name you prefer.

- A phone number where you can be reached.

- Several times over the next 5 days when you are available to talk on the phone privately.

A member of the research team will call you to discuss the study.

For questions please contact xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
