Piercings are body modifications made all over the world for thousands of years, and can represent an aesthetic preference, a cultural meaning and even as a way to increase sexual pleasure. Kissing a person with a piercing is pretty much the same as kissing someone who doesn't have it, but there are certain things to remember. By following some basic advice, you will ensure kissing pleasure for both you and your partner.
Method 1 of 3: Kissing a Pierced Person
Step 1. Carefully kiss around the piercing
Giving your partner a warmer kiss is always the first impulse, but it's not a good idea if he has a piercing. Be careful with the adorned location as it could be injured. First, kiss carefully around the piercing to see the individual's comfort level before increasing the intensity.
- New piercings are more sensitive.
- The chance of infection increases if the piercing is recent and has a lot of movement or is pulled.
Step 2. Communicate with the person being kissed
Every individual is different; some are more sensitive than others to piercing, so communicate constantly to see if he is experiencing pain or discomfort. When you notice that the person is not comfortable, stop kissing or be much more affectionate.
- People who have had piercings for a long time may not feel any pain when they are pulled. Some even think it's sensual.
- Say “Does it hurt? Do you want me to kiss you more slowly?"
Step 3. Be creative
Piercing leaves you with other factors to think about, but it also opens the door to a world of new possibilities. Tongue piercings, for example, are said to increase sexual pleasure. Think of innovative and fun ways to explore petting in individuals with such body modifications.

Method 2 of 3: Kissing someone after getting a piercing
Step 1. Do not pierce the person's teeth
When kissing your partner after performing this type of modification on the tongue, lip or labret (under the lower lip), it is necessary to be careful with his teeth. Piercings can chip the teeth and cause oral damage to the other person. After putting on these adornments, be careful when kissing her.
Step 2. Learn about partner comfort
Sensitivity levels with new piercings are very varied; if the individual is doing something that is causing pain or being uncomfortable, talk to them honestly about the kiss, telling them to be more careful.
Say, for example: “I love kissing you, but when you pull the piercing, I feel pain. Can you be a little more careful?"
Step 3. Be even more careful if you both wear piercings
If you and your partner have the body modification, pay extra attention, as the rings are more likely to stick together than in the rhinestones. If you can, avoid touching one piercing to another so they don't get caught.
Method 3 of 3: Preventing Piercing Infections
Step 1. Wait for the area around the piercing to heal
When you kiss someone who has just had a piercing, you are introducing foreign bacteria into the person's body, which can lead to an infection. Wait for the spot to heal before thinking about kissing her.
- Tongue piercings take four to six weeks to fully heal, but it depends on the person.
- On the lip, it takes six to ten weeks for full recovery.
- Labret piercings take longer: wait two to six months for them to heal completely.
Step 2. After kissing, wash your mouth with an antiseptic
Mouthwashes, such as Listerine or Cepacol, can be used if you don't want to stop kissing your partner; however, it is important to note that the use of excessive mouthwashes can result in a fungal infection at the site.
- When you notice that the tongue or mouth are acquiring a white color, avoid their use as much as possible.
- You can also ask your partner to use a similar type of antiseptic before you kiss, decreasing the chance of infection.
Step 3. When you notice a break in the flesh at the piercing site, go to your doctor
If the adornment slips out of place or tears the flesh after a warmer caress, see a doctor to avoid infections. Often, the piercing will have to be removed and replaced again after complete healing has occurred. By taking good care of the injury, the chances of further complications and infections in the future will be much smaller.
