Random Tuesday {12}: Inquiring Minds

So I went and did it.  I not only joined my local bdsm community, I decided that attending a sub forum would be a good idea.  (This is quite the step for me - I'm an introvert from the word GO.) Anyhow, I went last week, had a great time, but somehow managed to get myself roped into leading a discussion group next month.  So I'm freakin - just a little! 

I know I shouldn't be. I love the peeps I've met. They are all a great group of new friends that I can really relate to and are very welcoming. It's just this damn shyness.  I feel like I'm in speech class all over again.  It's crazy.  I'm a 40 year old woman, not sixteen!   However I will not let that stop me, since I love the topic that I'm going to be presenting: body modification.

And before everyone goes "Ew...are we talking gauges and split tongues..." back up the bus.  Body modification ranges from ear piercings at the simplest form to dermal, gauges, and tattoos at the far end.  

But I'm not going to get on my soapbox about the freedom of expression or how it's art...instead I'm going to beg for some input.  I want to make my presentation fun but informative.  So I inserted a poll below.  If you have the time and the inclination, take it.  It's completely anonymous and I'll be using the figures from it to give a broad picture of how peeps see piercings, and other body modifications to the group.  :)
