I'm thinking about getting a tongue ring (the ball), but I'm wondering if there would be a big risk of the piercing ripping a condom during oral sex?

Also, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for taking the time to deal with all the questions you receive here everyday. Many of us appreciate it, so thanks again.

Simple balls on a barbell don't seem like they'd present a problem, but other stuff, like little plastic stars or dice or anything with points might not be a good idea.

BTW, the Toronto Star had a rather graphic and disturbing piece on a tongue piercing gone terribly wrong a couple of weeks ago, and while I can't find the article on their site, I still think I should warn you that piercings, when badly done, can be extremely dangerous. Do some research on the 'net, check out lots of tattoo/piercing places, and talk to the piercers, and talk to people who've had the kind of piercing you want before you even think of actually putting you flesh to the needle, okay? I'm sure you've seen how unhappy simple ear piercings can get, you do NOT want a bad tongue piercing.

Also, if you are performing oral sex on a woman, or on anyone's anus, be sure to use a latex dam, and not plastic wrap. I've seen plastic wrap tear from a regular tongue piercing.
