Also, I'd like to direct NCWTD to the morning after pill! It's over the counter, costs $30 in Canada. If you're worried or if he comes on you while 'probing' , take it. You don't have to get pregnant even if he decides to be an asshole and force you into sex (dump the dude in that case)

As a long-time reader who happens to be heavily tattooed & pierced (and, yes, I have stretched ears too, suck it) I took offense to your seemingly out of nowhere attack on modified people.

It seems hypocritical to say what others can and cannot do with their bodies in terms of looks, but to have an 'anything respectful goes' attitude towards sex. A tattoo is not very different from a boob job, rhinoplasty, or getting your hair done. Ears can be reconstructed and piercings taken out. Tattoos can be removed. Hair grows out and can be cut, and nails repainted. It's the same thing - expression. Implementing a line for people not to go is bigoted. Everyone has control over their bodies, and we should all respect the aesthetic choices of others. Most of us modded folks get modded for OURSELVES - not for you. Not for your approval. Not for anyone's approval - just ours. What a concept!

On a similar note, tattoos and piercings are fetishes for a lot of folks, which is why you see a lot of tattooed/pierced couples with tons of mods, or, in my case, one partner with lots of mods and the other who looks like the squarest (but cute) accountant you've ever seen. You may not be into it, but other consenting adults can be and are. Deal with it!
