Pseudodaiths   <rant begin>

I've heard many sex educators (and piercers) opine that women don't know what their own anatomy looks like, let alone knowing the names of its various bits and pieces — whereas men almost always know exactly what both male and female genitals look like and are called in minutia. Well, in that vein, on nearly every update I get pictures from piercers that are misnamed, and there's one that's consistent and always drives me bonkers.


DAITH

DAITH

DOUBLE DAITH

NOT A DAITH!

Every update this mistake gets made a couple times, and almost always by piercers themselves…

I'm sorry, I mean no offense by this entry to piercers having difficulty with the nomenclature, but a daith is on the inside of the ear. Fully. If it's not, it's just an unusually place helix piercing. Not a Daith. It's a piercer's responsibility to know these things in my opinion.

I don't care if you pronounce it “daw-th” or “day-th”. But the placement and name go together and I think these things are worth not being sloppy about.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
