Insertion Tapers and Stimulating VCH Jewelry

I reveived a message recently:

Dear Elayne,
I got my VCH done last June by Kellan at infinite in Philly and I've been very pleased with it. He was a great and professional piercer, he calmed me down and talked me through it. I got a curved barbell but I've decided I want try out some different jewelry. Do you have any ideas for styles to increase stimulation?

Also, next month I have to have a test and my doctor said I have to take the jewelry out. How long can I leave it out for? I can't get back to Infinite any time soon. Thank you so much! A.

Extreme Swelling of Pierced Clitoral Hood After Sex (With Photos)

I had a piercee (not someone I pierced personally) contact me to say she was concerned about her genital piercings due to localized swelling following sexual activities:

VCH and Triangle piercing (with teardrop ring)I know you are super busy, and I totally appreciate you taking some of your time out to read and reply to my issue. I got a VCH on July 2nd and then I got a Triangle done on Sept 10th of this year. I haven't had any problems with the healing process but I have noticed lately when I have somewhat rough sex my hood gets quite swollen (like it kind of balloons up to maybe 2x its size). It gets really sensitive and discomforting and I don't know if its because the Triangle is still healing or is this a side effect of having both piercings? Or a combo of both?

Thank you for everything! You are an awesome woman and I love your book! You rock!

Yet Another (Different) Shallow Hood Piercing (VCH Piercing--with Photo)

I am so sorry to keep bugging you, but I'm very disappointed. After being curioAnother Shallow VCH Piercing (Marked)us as to why I wasn't receiving much clitoral stimulation from my piercing, I did a little more exploring of the area. I do think that this guy placed the bottom of the piercing a bit too far from the apex of my clitoral hood. I know I sound like a scrooge, but I didn't spend my hard earned money on a piercing that's only going to look pretty and not function as it should.

You can imagine how pissed off I am right now. I have attached a picture exposing the underside of my hood. Please give me your opinion. If you concur, I have a couple of questions for you.

Do you think I should abandon the piercing, or would simply changing the jewelry to a j-curve solve the issue? If I abandon the piercing, how long should I wait before getting re-pierced properly? Finally, can you recommend any piercers in California? (Preferably in the southern California or inland empire areas.) Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you so much. Xoxo <3 A.

Hi A.,

Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing More Painful than Usual

I had some lengthy correspondence with a piercee who went to a reputable professional for her Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing, but felt it was much more painful than most other women seem to find the procedure and aftermath. I believe it was a reflection of individual sensitivity after learning it was done by a skilled piercer.

Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Placement Question


Thank you for your blog and insight. When I decided on a VCH piercing I researched your blog and found infinate piercings in Philly to be reputable and only about 2 hours away from me. I had her done at the end of October. They were excellent, professional, clean...wonderful experience.

I guess my question to you is now that I feel I've healed, when I look at correct vch piercings mine looks different. It seems to stick out more than others.

Now I do realize anotomy is different so I try not to let it bother me, however it appears correct from the view I sent, according to your dots I see you mark on others photos. The side view shows it doesn't seem flush with the skin like others are. (She likes to lean to one side...ha) Could it possibly be pierced wrong? Perhaps I need a larger gauge. I was pierced at 12 and just ordered a 10 to stretch so perhaps that may help? Thanks for your time.

Duke Piercings on FTM Genitals and "Snips" For Piercers

Duke Piercings with straight barbellsI got a message from a fellow piercer who had asked me some questions about performing "Duke" piercings. This is the term I coined for Princess Diana piercings when they are performed on a Female-to-Male transsexual. Yes, they've been done on more than one. You can find more information about them here. There's also another photo and more description about the Princess Diana piercings here.

Hey Elayne! Thanks for the tips on the duke piercing. Here's how it turned out. I used 14g 9/16 sbb and the back side of a 10g needle as a receiving tube. Left one went no issues, right one I did 2x bc lost connection on insert. You can see where the initial incise was. I changed the positioning bc I thought it was too low, but now it seems too high. :/ either way, he was stoked and I was stoked to do them for him! Thanks again for your insight. Happy holidays to you an your family!

Yes, Yet ANOTHER Surface VCH Piercing

Argh! I'm SO frustrated. I loathe it when women contact me for advice and information, and I supply it to them, and they STILL end up with botched piercings. That's exactly what happened....

I received a message:

Q-tip Test for VCH Piercing, with swab tip marked

I've been doing research on VCH piercings and have tried the Q-tip test but i'm not certain if I'm doing it correctly.  The plan is to have it done as a Christmas present to myself but I want to be certain on whether or not I am built properly for this piercing.  Attached are the best photos I could capture while trying to do the test.  Thank you in advance for any information/suggestions that you may have.
 
Respectfully, W.
