genital piercings. (NSFW)

    Let's talk about them.

    I don't have nor have the desire to have my genitals pierced. Although, obviously, many people feel far differently. I had my first encounter with a Prince Albert piercing recently, thus it has been on my mind. Persistently. Nagging, nagging at my mind. :)

    It looked similar to this:
    [​IMG]

    A large (0 gauge) ring. It did not interfere with his sexual function and, from my side, it provided a unique sensory experience. :)

    Of course, I asked him a lot of questions about the piercing. He said that the two most notable things about having the piercing done was the insertion of a stainless steel tube into his urethra (painful) and waking up in a rather large (distressingly large) pool of blood the next morning.

    He didn't start out with a 0 gauge, but says that it has 'stretched out' over the intervening years. He was pierced in 1996.

    Do any of our fellow TFP'ers have any genital piercings?

    If so, what was you experience like?

    Are you wearing a larger gauge now than when you first had your piercing done?

    Have you seriously thought about genital piercing but not 'psyched' yourself up for it?

    How would you feel if you discovered that a lover had a genital piercing? Would it turn you off or on?

    Just some basic questions. But you can comment in any way you like.

    I've never understood hating your penis enough to shove a steel rod through it.

    Recently on a nude beach, I saw one that looked more like the nose ring on a bull in the old cartoons. I have no idea what gauge it was, but it made the one in the picture look downright petite. :eek:

    My wife has only had sex with one guy who had a small piercing on the bottom of the shaft. She didn't care for it.

    Wow, so when we pierce our earlobes we are actually hating our ears. That's very enlightening.

    I forgot to answer my own questions.

    I have no piercings other than my ears and I have never considered having my genitalia pierced. Not my labia and certainly not my clit. (Yikes.) But I understand that it is one of those things that people have a 'burning desire' for - the way I obsess over tattoos.

    I had never really thought about genital piercings on men one way or the other before meeting this guy, but I was definitely curious once I found out about it. Personally, I think the ring is a little unwieldy for (some) sexual relations, but visually it was very attractive. My mind has definitely been opened. :)

    Thanks for the NSFW tag. I always forget about that.
    Then again, if you are reading a thread about genital piercings at work, you might want to rethink that behavior. Just sayin'.

    I'm sorry but no, comparing piercing your ears to you penis is ridiculous. Its like comparing cutting your hairs to self mutilation ;)

    Yes I think a guy needs something off in the head to put a steel rod through his penis. I don't know if its a need for attention, or a need to feel "different' or something, but its not the kinda thing that someone does for beauty, per pressure or the like.

    You say "yikes" about piercing your own, so yea you know what I'm talking about, lets not sugar coat this.

    I'm pretty much with Herculite on this one.

    About 25 years ago, I danced with a woman who had a ring in her nose (left side). At the time, I thought this was such an unusual experience that it would astonish my future grandchildren.

    It's only ridiculous to you because it doesn't coalesce with your character judgment.

    Also, it's not considered good form on this site to alienate people who might want to participate on this thread because you are insufferably rude with your personal opinion about someone's choice of body decoration.

    From my experience with someone who has this piercing, he loves it, he is different and he and his piercing are fucking beautiful.

    I don't have one, nor do I want one. I do find them interesting though. The ones with a bar seem like they would interfere with sex. I do look at them on the internet just cause I find them interesting. For women my wife dint have one and I don't I know if she's ever thought about getting one. But if she did that would be fine with me . To each his own

    Also, dude, just because I don't want to have my clit pierced doesn't mean that someone is 'off in the head' because they do. Some people are afraid of having their ears pierced. It's all relative. Try being a little more open-minded. That's what we're about here.

    I have a Prince Albert that started as an apadravya, maybe nine years?? ago. The A is not a piecing for the faint of heart, I did a lot of research before taking the plunge. It took forever to heal, which I knew was a possibility going in. I gave it about 4-5 months before removing the straight bar and going with a captive ball ring PA. It's been so long I don't remember the gauge.

    The procedure: The piercer asked me many questions to determine what I knew about the apadravya. Once he figured out that I had done my research he didn't try to talk me out of the piercing. It helped that I had been with my wife at the same studio when she had piercings done (more on that later, probably a separate post). I was given a slide caliper and was instructed to get fully erect and measure my head from the top at a spot about 3/8 inch from the crown to the underside of my penis. This measurement is important because if the bar is too short it will squeeze the head too hard and could tear through the urethea (an extreme case). If it's too long it won't be snug enough against the head, it could catch during intercourse. I was left alone to do this. The actual piercing was not 'over in a second' like a nipple piercing. It took a couple of seconds for the needle to go all the way through the head. Yes, it hurt.

    I carefully followed the aftercare instuctions, but my penis kept playing turtle which caused the bar to rub, which kept the wound aggravated, which slowed the healing process, etc. My wife said that she didn't notice anything different during intercourse, but that's not surprising because the apadravya is more about a tightening sensation for the piercee. I also have a pronounced corona, which basically negated any sensation she might have otherwise felt from the top ball. I went in to get a longer bar because the first one was too tight, but that didn't help with the slow healing process.

    I can't say that I feel any physical sexual benefit from the PA, it's more of a psychological lift. Much like having a personal secret that you know would shock many people if they knew (it's hard to explain). My wife says she feels the ring the most during doggy style, and admits that over time the extra sensation has diminished. I've never considered a thicker gauge, but have looked into a larger ring. My wife & I decided against it because she's naturally tight and there are times during intercourse where she just about locks me out. That combined with prolonged vigorous intercourse sometimes leads to some tenderness around the PA.

    One thing about the PA. Urinating standing up can be an interesting experience, like having two strong streams, one stream going where it's supposed to while the underside stream ends up on the toilet, the floor, your shoes, the front of your pants. Urinals are a blessing, but not the 'Universal' ones that are too low. I can hold my penis and the piercing such a way to avoid (more like minimize) the mess, but a sit down pee works the best.

    I started similar thread in TFP 4, the responses are worth finding & reading.

    Many apologies -- I'm still a newbie here. I had no idea I was being rude.

    That observation applies to all men, whether or not pierced.

    It wasn't directed at you specifically, but thank you. Whereas on other threads we have more tolerance for criticizing and passing judgment on people and their choices, in matters of sexuality we try to give each other a pretty wide berth as long as we're talking about activities that are not illegal and don't harm others.

    Found it.
    Body piercings on guys - Tilted Forum Project Discussion Community


    One thing I frequently see in discussions about piercings, & IMO some clarification is needed:
    Clit piercing is a term commonly used to refer to what is actually a clit hood piercing. If my research is accurate, very few women actually have their clitoris pierced.

    Wow, thanks for this response. I had never heard of the apadravya before, but I looked it up. It's a good-looking piercing. :)

    Because it was my first "prince albert experience" the sensation was very pronounced for me (even though he was wearing a condom). I can totally understand how you might become used to it over time, though. According to my friend, he doesn't feel any sensation at all from the piercing, he just enjoys the fact that he has it (he has others, as well).

    I will have to ask him how he urinates next time I see him, lol.

    Yes, you're probably right about that, but I have heard of actual 'clitoris piercings' before.

    2008. Makes me feel nostalgic.

    My wife had a vertical clit hood piercing that she let heal over; I don't recall why, it might have involved a hospital stay. She wants to have it redone. I find the horizontal piercing more asthetically pleasing, but she's the one who has to walk, sit, kneel, etc. with a piece of metal a fraction of an inch from her clitoris. We once discussed a double hood piercing (one above the clit, one below) with a piercer, but he advised against it, saying the initial extra stimulation might be nice, but it could be overstimulating and eventually cause desensitization. My wife enjoyed feeling the ring moving across her clit when masturbating and when I manually stimulated her (using the ring to tease her was great!).

    The piercings she most thoroughly enjoys are her nipples.

    In my wife's experience (and in general from what I've read & heard)--It healed quickly, was stable didn't migrate, and because the piercing was (usually is) above the clitoris, it didn't interfere with intercourse (even hard physical sex) or cunnilingus.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Regarding the psychology behind body piercings----My question is, what is more strange, the people with visible piercings who want to attract attention to themselves, or the people with private piercings that very few people will ever see?

    You could ask the same question about tattoos, I suppose. I think a lot of it has to do with employment. I will not be able to find work as a nurse with a visible piercing (other than ears) or a full-sleeve tattoo. Even though I would love to have a full-sleeve. Other people fall into lines of work in which there is more leeway in that regard.

    I don't think either of them are strange. There are some types of body modification that I find to be more unusual than others, but having met a wide variety of people in my life with all manner of body decoration and absence thereof, I know that 'strangeness' of character is rarely related to what they have on their body. Quite the contrary.

    GeneticShift Show me your everything is okay face.

    I like the idea of "hidden" piercings. It's a secret you can think about while talking to people who will never see them. I have a few friends with hood piercings that seem to enjoy them. From what I've heard from them, it hurts like a son of a bitch at first, but it heals insanely quickly and actually has a really low risk of infection if you're keeping it clean. I don't think I would ever want one, but I'm not disgusted by them.

    Though not technically "genital", I have been considering a nipple piercing, just for me.

    My question regarding visible v. private piercings was directed more to the folks who think there's something wrong with people who go for body piercings. Yes, tattoos certainly apply, although tats have gained a certain level of social acceptance, but clearly not in certain professions.

    MM, it's a shame that you can't have the tattoo(s) that you want. Part of me understands the medical profession wanting to maintain a professional image, but personally I don't see an issue with nurses with visible tattoos and/or body piercings.

    Edit: I certainly like the word certain. Would you believe that I own at least five thesauruses? And let's not forget the ones available online.

    Those are pretty loaded words.

    Why are you so eager to judge people? There are as many reasons to pierce as there are to tattoo and only a few have to do with hating your dick (if any).

    Men and women pierce ears, noses, nipples, etc. are they so full of hate for their various body parts? And yes, they are equivalent.

    Just because an ear piercing is socially normal doesn't change the fact that the process is pretty much the same.

    Your squeemishness in the face of something different, more to the point, your willingness to belittle people's choices makes you look small-minded.

    You don't have to like it or even agree with it. Just take care in your choice of words.
