To extract a profile of self-esteem, 8 questions were asked in the pre and post piercing survey sections; internal consistency Cronbach alpha of both scales was 0.
When all five responses of the scale were totaled 20the mean was To our knowledge this is the largest repository of data currently available to provide further evidence of the demographics and health issues regarding men with GP.
The anonymous data, obtained by networking sampling and Comparative study of self esteem of the, economical web-based survey, could be viewed as a study limitation. Yet, finding similarities between this data and data collected almost ten years ago suggests that our findings tapped into a core body of knowledge about men with GP.
Similar data, obtained at different times, from different respondents increases the credibility and lends the information to further generalizability to influence use in practice. All of the men had one type of GP, and some had multiple GP, and many had other general body piercings.
Respondents stated their GP were an important and satisfying part of their life, they still liked them, and would repeat the procedure; the GP improved their sexual activities, few refused sexual intercourse, those that exercised were active, and they were not troubled by the GP complications.
From a medical standpoint the insertion of a GP could be considered a minor surgical procedure, and yet the data suggests that when the GP is performed by experienced hands only minimal side effects are reported. Thus, finding a knowledgeable, expert piercer is an important educational theme.
However, patients need to also be aware that certain types of piercing may require some behavioral changes such as toileting and consistent body cleaning. Unfortunately virtually no health care providers, including clinicians, were mentioned in the GP decision making process or care, they usually went to the internet or returned to a piercer for information.

There is ample empirical evidence that self-efficacy and self-concept beliefs are each related with and influence academic achievement. Moreover, they also mediate the influence of other variables that predict academic achievement, which is to say that they act as a filter between variables such as previous achievement and mental ability on academic achievement.
These study participants with GP were older, well-educated men, often in a stable relationship, different than what is usually thought about people with body piercings. Sample demographics from this study and the other two cited GP studies 21,22 do not reflect individuals from stereotypical low performing social and economical backgrounds.
Demographically, the people with GP were in their early thirties, Caucasian, heterosexual, well educated, employed, in good health, with some religious beliefs, but not ethnically diverse.
In contrast to literature describing men with GP as antisocial miscreants or mostly homosexual, 2,4,18 our data support that these men are more part of the mainstream culture.
Men with GP did not deny their propensity to be risk takers, but being a risk taker was not synonymous with being deviant, but more with achieving individualization. Their first time for sexual intercourse was close to the male national average.
While procurement of any type of body art is thought to be impulsive 7, their time for GP decision-making was deliberate, as well as their practice of on-going, conscientious care of their piercings. The unsubstantiated assumptions in the literature about GP complications such as male infertility, scrotal infections, reduction of erotic stimulation, and frequent infections with bicycle rides were also challenged.
They took their sexual concerns seriously, as part of their internal influences of self esteem and their need for uniqueness. Their documented motives reflected sexual enhancement, aesthetics, as well as uniqueness.
Their stated outcomes of the GPs reflected an ability to better express themselves sexually and create a sense of uniqueness; these elements obviously took precedence over the two problems of urinary flow changes and hypersensitivity.
Both these motives and outcomes were similar when compared with the other two studies. Their reporting incidence of STD was low compared to the national Guttmacher Institute report of one in three sexually active people will have contracted a STD by age One STD clinic study found that neither socioeconomic status, method of contraception, multiple partners, or the presence of genital infections correlated with GP.
The men with GP reported few incidents of abuse emotional, physical, or sexual or forced sexual activity against their will whereas over a third of the women with GP22 reported this.
This was a non experimental, descriptive study design and the respondents self-selected to complete a web-based survey. Participants with strong negative or positive feelings may have been more likely to complete the survey.
Yet, as random sampling is almost impossible in a population with hidden variables, and in spite of these limitations, the respondents did contribute further quantitative data.This exploratory study investigates the effects of race and other demographic characteristics (age, marital status, number of children, number of dependent children, and job status) on the self-esteem of black, white and latino female subjects.

Jun 10, · The term self-concept is a general term used to refer to how someone thinks about or perceives themselves. To be aware of oneself is to have a concept of oneself. One definition of self-concept is: “the individual’s belief about himself or herself, including the person’s attributes and who and what the self is."Author: Natalie L.
