Default Alrighty, all I want to know is WHY???

So, I'm just sitting here killing time before I go out and mess with the horses in the rain. And I'm surfing ALL over the internet. I go to the BME site, which I find relatively entertaining in small doses.

Has anyone ventured over there? Checked out the sample photos in the Extreme/Hard?? Does it not make you SICK? WHY would people want to nail their genitals to a block of wood? Cut their toes off? Shave their teeth? Stretch their nipples? Castrate themselves? STICK A DINNER KNIFE THROUGH THE SKIN IN THEIR BACK. Seriously, I just don't get it. I'm all for self expression, but those pics are just effing crazy.

Different strokes for different folks.. personally I think it's not for me, at all.. but I'm sure people think the exact same thing about my ears and/or tattoos.

So, do I think it's a bit weird? Absolutely. Do I want to keep an open mind and not judge? Absolutely.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with you. No judgement, just honestly curious as to WHY someone would sit on their kitchen table, slice open their private parts, and then post pics of it. I guess it's either for the pain aspect, or the thrill of seeing blood, which I don't like either of those, but as you've said, "different strokes" ... Guess it's better to slice up your own body instead of someone else's if that's the way you get your jollies on.

Well from my understanding the pain, blood, etc aspect is only a part of it and they're actually trying to achieve an end result, whether it be scarification or amputation.

I like to read some of the stories. I guess it would make more sense to have the pics with the stories, instead of separate. Just peeking at random pics makes my head spin with the sheer shock factor of it. Despite the fact that I do love tattoos, I do NOT enjoy the pain associated with them, so seeing someone sitting there cutting off their toe just makes no sense to me. I never used to understand the whole cutting thing, but after reading some of the explanations about it, I can actually get why someone would do it. Whew, anyway, thanks for responding. I really didn't want my post to come off as judgemental, but I did want a little discussion about it.

No, only saw the pictures. I'm interested in reading it, though. I'll go back on the site and try to find it. And Lol at Terry; I watch AI too.

I have to have the membership to read it. I've submitted a story to get the full access to the site, but it hasn't been read yet, so they haven't activated my account. If you can copy and paste it, or even send me a pm with it, I'd love to read it.
