The LA Times published an interesting article about the demographics of genital piercings the other day that I thought readers would be interested in. While I've blogged before about Karl Rove's gay dad and all of his piercings (link NSFW), it seems he's not the usual guy getting his junk poked full of holes.
Who's the most likely to get their stuff pierced? Straight white middle aged men.
So what's the motivation behind getting your genitals pierced? Anyone who's got one care to explain? The article lists several of the problems associated with the jewelry. The results come from a self-selecting bunch of guys, but there's some interesting statistics available. They're after the jump.
