Wheelchair User and Genital Piercings

I received a message from a wheelchair user who is considering genital piercing:

Hi Elayne, I have Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) and I use a power wheelchair so I sit 16-18 hrs a day. I'm in my early 50's. My Dr is against tattoos let alone piercings, but I want both. I've just had several surgeries and I expect to have more surgery in four months. I want to know the risks of getting my clit pierced and whether it is a bad idea for me. I'm a currently single lesbian with a healthy sex life.  I'm a disability rights advocate, and I usually find a way to do the things I want to do. But I like to know what I'm getting myself in for and whether it's possible. Any help you can give me will help.

Thanks,

N

My response:

Hi N,

Thanks for your message and your interest.

There are a few considerations as to whether genital piercing is appropriate in your circumstances.

One of the most important deciding factors is the configuration of your local anatomy. Have you read about the different genital piercing options?

Compared to the range of other female genital piercings, clitoris piercing is very rare:

Another is whether you have any issues with incontinence? That could potentially cause healing problems for a genital piercing.

If not, and you're anatomically suited to the piercing you desire, and you are able to provide consistent aftercare as explained here:

I got this great feedback from a woman who saw my website and made use of one of my piercer referrals:

Elayne! I LOVE this website! After months & months of reading about different genital piercings, no other place has given me such detailed information. From what I have been reading, you know EVERYTHING about genital piercings & I wanted to wait until you came to Detroit to get a piercing but In July I just couldn't wait any longer and went to see a piercer. I live in Shelby Township, MI & I was so excited to see that you referred Tiffany Diamond from Lady Luck located in Waterford, MI.

I went to see Tiffany just to ask about the triangle piercing and maybe gain a little more knowledge, & ended up getting the piercing that same day! Tiffany was very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable. I definately would recommend her to somebody interested in getting a genital piercing. The piercing did not hurt as bad as I thought it would..... The anticipation building up was worse than the actual piercing itself lol Thank you so much!

Still Yet ANOTHER Accidental Clitoris Piercing (Botched VCH) Hood Piercing

I received a message from a woman who went in to get her hood pierced, and came out with her clitoral glans pierced!

Hi I had my vch done 4 days ago with a standard curved barbell but I'm really not sure about the placement, it moves about loads too. Do I just need a smaller bar? Or take it out all together?

Accidental Clitoris Piercing (VCH requested)

 

My reply:

That's not a VCH--it is a CLITORAL GLANS piercing. And you should take that long bar out immediately!

If you like the way it feels and decide to keep it, you should get a bar that is half the length of the current one. The one you're wearing is dangerously long and you could end up with a split clitoris if you accidentally caught it.

Please refer to this page to clarify the difference between a VCH and a clitoris piercing.

Would you like me to post the name and studio of the offending piercer so other women don't go to him for genital piercings? If you did not request a clitoris piercing than you have been seriously wronged! If your clitoris were any smaller, it could have really damaged your sexual pleasure.

Inner Labia Piercing Question (with photo)

I got a message from a woman with an inner labia piercing:

I just recently pierced my labia minora and I have been cleansing it with saline solution three times a day. It burns like crazy when I go to the bathroom though. I don't know if that can infect it or what I need to do to prevent infection. Please help. Thanks.

This is an excerpt from my book, The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing, and I think it could help you:

Genital Piercing: Urinating

Bodily fluids are apt to get on certain genital piercings, which is not a problem—if they are your own. Urine is one of man’s first antiseptics and, if you are healthy, your own liquid waste will not harm your piercing. The regular passage of urine over the jewelry helps to minimize crusting, too. Urine can sting during the first few days of healing, so drink lots of water. This dilutes the urine and lowers the acidity, which minimizes discomfort. Cranberry juice or large quantities of orange juice or vitamin C will make your urine acidic,1 which may cause excess discomfort. Additionally, you can pour a clean cup of water—warm or cool, as you prefer—over the area as you urinate. This rinses off the urine so it doesn’t linger uncomfortably, and the water feels soothing.

Botched Triangle Piercing of the Day

I received yet another email from a woman who felt her "triangle piercing" wasn't properly placed. She was right:

I received a triangle piercing three days ago. I'm feeling a lot of discomfort. can you "triangle" piercing that is far too lowplease take a look at my piercing. I just want to make sure it was done correctly.

Nope--sorry, it is not even close. It looks to be about an inch south of where it should be. The triangle should be right beneath the clitoral shaft, which goes back and up from your clitoral glans. We can clearly see the head of your clitoral glans peeking out from underneath the "inverted V" of your hood. The piercing would need to be quite near to there... So you have the piercing equivalent of about a mile off from where it should have been placed. There is no likelihood of you receiving the type of stimulation that a properly placed triangle piercing can provide (from the back of the clitoris).

Fortunately, it is unlikely that you will suffer any damage to vital structures from the piercing being so low. It is more of a missed opportunity for enhancement, plus the pain or discomfort and also the expense of going through a piercing that isn't what you wanted, and isn't located where it is supposed to be.

I also marked your images with the approximate location of a triangle.

Her reply:

The piercer's name was Perry. He works at Gold Coast studio in Monterey, CA. I initially went in for a VCH , but was told that I was suited for it. I'm more upset that he suggested the triangle knowing he didn't have experience performing the procedure.

VCH Piercing and Urethritis

I received a message form a woman who was experiencing a problem:

I've had my VCH piercing for over a year now. I love it and I never want to remove it. But recently I went to the Doctor for URETHRITIS and of course they recommended that I remove and or use plastic jewlery. Should the balls on the end of my jewlery be plastic or would it be much safer to get an entire plastic piece.

My reply:

Admittedly, I'm not a doctor, but I know medical professionals often have a tendency to blame health conditions on piercings whether that makes sense or not.

One concern with having your doctor focused on your piercing as the cause of the problem means that the real reason may not get addressed.

A VCH is not located very near to the urethral opening. The image shows an improperly placed VCH piercing marked with an arrow where the jewelry should be resting, and the line marked at the bottom shows the location of the urethra. As you can see, the jewelry is quite far away from the urethra!
