Prince Albert
Originally uploaded by ABMann.
Now is when you all should ask yourselves, "do the pictures he posts reflect something about his mood?"

No, I shan't be piercing that particular protuberance; however, I am vaguely considering a second piercing and have been somewhat crotch-focused in my internal musings as of late.

Regarding the former, maybe a cartilage's piercing in my ear, either the scapha or tragus. But it will probably take another four years and two girlfriends to gang up on me to convince me to go through with it.

I'd discuss the latter but it may devolve into hand wringing, whining or fury. Suffice that I still firmly believe being poly is ultimately useless if you haven't the confidence ask.

Winter's shell has taken me.

nice. I knew a guy with one once. But he was very gay (self-described as "more than 6" on the Kinsey scale) so I never got to see it.

Shyness can stop you

You'd like to"

Story of my life, that poem.

The Smiths are very apt at times...

That is a band I'm told I would like.

All mine is on cassette, but you're welcome to borrow them. I didn't quite wear out the tapes when I was fifteen. And you were... four?

i love the colors in that photo. love love love them.

speaking of prince alberts . . lots of my dude-friends had that done at some point. it was a very popular thing to do in my "scene" apparently. so one day my friend gordon busted out this crazy pair of boxers and said "these are the boxers i was wearing the night i got my prince albert pierced" - they were completely covered in stained blood. holy shit.

anyway. great photo. :)

I'm a big fan of the cross processing and lomography affects, which you've probably noted already. It seems that these effects are especially good when using pictures taken in harsh afternoon light, which is when I am usually out with camera. It creates that creepy/sick nostalgia as well as beats the highlights into submission.

I only know one person, sort of, that has a PA and his wife loves the hell out of it. She's a fan of the metal and has (I'm going to get in trouble if I'm wrong) 8 piercings of her own, two in a similar area. She also has 5 (6?) tattoos. Very cool. But I'm pretty sure neither of them kept the undergarments they were wearing when doing the deed. I'm not sure I want to know if they do. :|

yes i have noticed that you like the lomo stuff. it always provides so much richness, at least i think that it does.

i have a friend whose photography is exactly the opposite - he always goes for this slightly to moderate desaturated look, and it has its own place. but i always get much more out of saturated, full colors.

yeah you know, i don't know why he saved the boxers, but it made for an interesting conversation piece. they were clean and he never wore them, but paraded them like some kind of trophy. i guess for going through that, he sort of deserves the recognition.

about the wife loving it . . i'm going to plead the fifth on that one. o_O

I've done the desaturation thing but gravitate towards brighter when the situation benefits. The photo will guide.

I cringed when I read the title of the photo. I didn't even need to read the entry to realize what the picture signified. Well done, man.

On that note, however, one of my friends (who is not gay) had the same piercing. His only issue with it was that it made condoms difficult, and sometimes weaker. Those are my only words of warning to ya.

That photo made me laugh aloud, and then my parents wanted to know what was so funny, and I had to make something up.

I had my cock pierced once. I had a barbell through the skin under the head (no actual fless was pierced) but it kept coming out during oral sex, so I just left it out and it never went back in.

I know the feeling. It's got me all weird too.
