The Correct Words are “Flesh Tunnel”


To use the right words, you’ve got to know what are the right words.

Most recent case in point: I heard on the radio (Heidi and Frank, incidentally) that plastic surgeons are receiving many clients who want work done on their earlobes. These people, usually when they were younger, stretched out the lobes with metal or plastic hoops or spools. Now, usually because they either are interviewing for a new job or are in a relationship with someone who doesn’t like it, they want their lobes fixed.

The hole they created is called a flesh tunnel, and they aren’t new. You probably have seen pictures of Africans in National Geographic wearing such things, often made of bone or stone. Many ancient peoples, including the Harappans (ancient Pakistanis) and Egyptians wore them, as did other African and Totonac (Mexican) people before the West adopted it.

Some might think that flesh tunnel refers to another part of the body. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Until next time! Use the right words!
