An Industrial Piercing is created when two or more piercings are connected by a single barbell.
This piercing was first popularized (and named) by Erik Dakota in Body Play magazine #4 (1992), where it was pictured and titled, "industrial ear project."
Infections often occur while the piercing is very fresh. Microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria, attempt to invade the body and cause infection. The body reacts and attempts to fight off the infection by surrounding it with white blood cells. Often there is increased swelling and redness and the piercing will be sore to the touch and a thick discharge of grey, brown, or green puss will excrete from the site of the piercing. Compresses can help, if used early on.
If the infection is left unchecked, then the piercee may need anti-biotic treatment.
Information is a section on the website describing all the different piercing types and locations. It also gives advice on what to do when getting a piercing.
Inlaid Plugs are a type of flesh plug worn in stretched piercings.
Inlaid plugs have a unique design of two materials, such as Buffalo and Silver or Buffalo and Horn. The 'inlay' is a layer of design inserted or 'laid' onto the base of the flesh plug, often creating two different colours or textures on the surface.

Vibrators (also known as insertables) are devices intended to vibrate against the body (including insertion in a body cavity), thereby stimulating the nerves and giving a pleasurable and possibly erotic feeling.
Vibrators often allow people to achieve orgasm faster and easier and are often said to provide stronger orgasms than those produced by manual stimulation alone. They are often recommended by sex therapists for women who have difficulty reaching orgasm by other means. Couples also use them sometimes as an enhancement to the pleasure of one or both partners.
