Self-reported Characteristics 2 Self-reported Characteristics of Women and Men with Intimate Body Piercings Statement of Problem The article entitled Self-reported Characteristics of Women and Men with Intimate Body Piercings (Caliendo, Armstrong, & Roberts, June 2004) examines the health issues and social demographic of those who have intimate piercings. The researchers wanted to find answers for three main questions; what is the main demographic characteristics of people who have intimate body parts pierced, what cause the decision or what events led to the decision, and what health issues if any have people experienced with intimate piercings. This study was conducted to help the medical world to know how to best address health issues that may be caused by piercings to the genitals and nipple area, and how to better treat the complications of said piercings.
