I was all set to go and get my labret pierced next week (already check the place out for cleanliness etc.), but I heard an upsetting rumour. Is it true you can't give oral sex after having an oral piercing? Now, in a sense this sounds reasonable but I love doing this for my guy because I love it, but 6 weeks is a long time. I feel nymphomatic...anyway is this true?

"Interesting, how the mythology of romance contradicts the reality of coupling, and perpetuates a definition of love that creates dangerous expectations"

It would be unadvisable, especially unprotected, as the site will be very prone to possible infection AND open your partner up to infection more easily. Hepatitis risks are also increased.

Same goes for genital piercings, as may be obvious.

Your piercer should also be able to tell you this information. I have a vertical labret and i was advised no kissing or oral contact for at least 3 weeks, although nothing specifically was said about oral sex. It was very tender anyways so it wasn't a big deal. Piercings take a long time to heal and are prone to infection anyways, but adding the risk of STD's is not a good idea. Ask your piercer the timeline they woudl recommend (Chances are this won't be the first time they've heard the question) and to be extra safe use a condom when you do decide to give oral sex.
