Shallow Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing with Dangerously Long and Large Jewelry

I received this message from a concerned piercee:

I got my piercing done two days ago and the skin that is on top of the bar hurts really bad to be touched.  Also where the top ball sits when I move it so I can clean it hurts. Also when  i got itI done it was the worse pain I have ever felt in my life!I please help!

Interesting Question about "Effectiveness" of Female Genital PIercings

I recently got a very interesting question I hadn't been asked before:

Though you may not be able to answer this I'd like to ask if you know an estimated percentage of women who sexually benefit from VCH and HCH piercings. My main reason for doing it is enhancing orgasms, not anatomical "beauty". I've read that few women truly get more or easier orgasms through piercings. If its less likely I'd have some improvement its probably not worth it for me.
Would you have any idea? 
Thank you!

My reply:

Did you read this page of my site: http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings ?

It explains that VCH VCH and Triangle Piercing and triangle piercings (both shown in image, right) are the two that are most commonly "functional" for women and those are the placements that are more likely to increase stimulation and sexual enjoyment. And that the HCH is primarily ornamental for most women.

I can also say that I do get a great deal of positive feedback from women who describe the genital piercings I do for them as "great" or "wonderful" and report, "I love it!" but they don't necessarily provide me with particulars in every case. From the feedback I receive, I'd have to say it seems "worth it"--as that is the overall sense I get from my clients. Here's a comment from a recent posting on my guestbook:

Elayne Angel: Piercings In the Year 2011

For those who don't know, I live (very happily!) in the Yucatan of Mexico, and I periodically travel around the US to do piercings in the fine studios of my colleagues.*

Last year I took nine different piercing trips spanning from Los Angeles to Atlanta, Seattle to Philadelphia, and some places in between, like Detroit and Oklahoma City.

I pierced a total of 32 days last year. I performed 549 piercings on 383 clients, including 246 Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercings, and 100 triangle piercings, among others.

And it was A BLAST! Thanks so much to each of my clients who went through the process and put forth the effort to make an appointment with me to get pierced. In many cases you've traveled to see me--sometimes great distances. I'm honored, and I take seriously the trust you place in me to do my job.

Last year's record distance was a woman who traveled from Dubai to West Hollywood to be pierced by me! This year's contender appears to be a woman who has booked an appointmet to get pierced by me in Philadelphia, and she is coming from Japan.

I am incredibly fortunate and my life is truly amazing! In many ways I feel like the luckiest person I know. As long as I'm sharing, here's a few photos that show highlights of 2011:

Triple Frenum Piercing Discussion

I got a message from a reader who wanted my input on frenum piercings:

Hi there Elayne,

I own your book and respect you and your opinions like no other.  Please keep up the good work. 

I am curious about a frenum piercing, except lower, about halfway down the shaft and maybe 3 of them.  I was wondering if I sent you a picture if I could get your opinion on if my anatomy would be fort for these piercing.  I have a very good piercer set up to do it for me, except I dont have a lot of money to make 2 trips, like one extra for a consult. That's why I was asking I you could let my know what you think. 

Also I was thinking curved barbell?  Whats you opinion on that?  Also possibly a horseshoe later on.  If you can accept pics what address would I email it to?  My piercer and I were talking and she suggested about 1/2" curved barbell at 14 gauge to start.  Thanks for your time.

Accidental Clitoris Piercing: Failed Attempt at a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

This is no joke. A woman went in for a clitoral hood piercing and ended up with an accidental piercing of her clitoral glans! This is one of the reasons I try to suggest people travel if necessary to get pierced by me or visit the piercers I refer to. We know how to place a VCH piercing safely and in the proper location. Unfortunately, many piercers haven't got a clue.

Many women end up with shallow VCH piercings or surface VCH piercings, but this is an error I've seen time and time again. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Ask your piercer where they got specific training to perform genital piercings--not just how long they've been piercing. I know of piercers who have been doing a poor job for 10-15 years or more. A lengthy career does not guarantee competence!

Here's the message I recently received:

Hello Elayne, Accidental Clitoris Piercing (VCH attempt)
I have a quick question about a piercing that I received a week ago.  I had a VCH piercing which I believe was too shallow and migrated and so had to be removed.  I let it heal for about 6 months and then went to a different studio to have it done again.

The first time was exactly as you describe with a 'pinch' sensation and my ears were definitely a more painful piercing.  This time was one of the most painful experiences of my life, which I attributed to it being placed properly this time and having some scar tissue.

Hood Splitting vs. Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) and Triangle Piercings

I received a message from a woman inquiring about hood splitting:


I'm writing to get your opinion (and maybe some information) on clitoral hood splitting.  I currently have a vch and triangle, which I believe are both placed perfectly.  But, I'm still having problems achieving orgasm (I was hoping those would help).  I think it's because my hood is rather thick and even when I'm "hard" my clitoris isn't exposed at all so it makes it difficult to actually stimulate it.  I've been trying to do some research and maybe find information about hood splitting and where to get it done (I'm located in the midwest) but I can't seem to find much of anything.  I was hoping that maybe you could give me some information on it.

Thank you!

Botched Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) Piercing with Photo

Here's an exchange I had with a woman who suspected right away that there was something wrong with her Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing:

I just had a HCH piercing done this afternoon, but 'm freaking out and need some help.... It's swollen a bit and all the time I check it, is still bleeding! Didn`t have any pain after getting it done, just felt a little unconfortable when I walked up to the supermarket few hours later. But is all about this bleeding that seems no to stop! Am so worried and thinking of taking it of... Please would love if you could give me an advice! Thanks ever so much!

I Couldn't Resist

Just Ears

My husband found this image (and I'd be very happy to credit whoever is responsible, if anyone can tell me!) and I just had to post it here.

Enjoy!
