Genital Play Piercing vs. Permanent Piercings with Body Jewelry

I recently received a very interesting piercing question from a piercer who is unsure of what to do when it becomes clear that a client is getting genital piercings for the experience of being pierced, and who does not really want to wear jewelry:

I have a 74-year-old gentleman who early last week came in and requested 4 8 gauge frenum piercings and an 8 gauge prince albert. Anatomy was suitable for the frenums but not quite for the P.A. so I made him aware and performed that piercing at a 10 gauge instead.

Everything was well and good, he was a more than satisfied client and went on his way. 3 days later he came in again and had taken them all out and wanted them all performed again. The P.A. was easily tapered back open and was not in need of a repierce. To redo the Frenums I just offset them a safe distance from the previous spots and re pierced them. The fact that he had had the procedure performed and then taken them out and had them redone within 3 days raised a few questions in my mind but i decided that I had no reason to not believe him when he said that he had just gotten frustrated with them so he took them out and realized doing so was a mistake.

Today, however, the gentleman came in to the shop again (3 days after the re-pierce, 6 days after the initial procedure) and had taken them all out again and wanted them re pierced yet again.

Bad News About Over-Stretched Prince Albert Piercing

I received this message from a piercee who was experiencing problems with his Prince Albert piercing:

Hi Elayne,

Finally I found someone who might have an answer. I got a PA about 3 years ago now. All went well and I was able to size up to an 8mm / 0 gauge after about 2 1/2 years. I wore the 8mm 24/7 for about 3 months when I noticed there was only about 5mm of skin between the piercing and the urethra.

I've taken the ring out completely now to see if the hole will close down a bit but its still much the same size. I dont want to wear a smaller ring in case the skin breaks thru completley. Any ideas? Should I leave it out for longer? It's been out for 8 months now. Would I be right in thinking that a smaller ring, although not heavy, would prevent any kind of healing?
Thanks S.

Trauma from Sex: Prince Abert

I received a message from a man who has had his Prince Albert piercing for years, and it suddenly started bleeding, but the reason was not hard to figure out:

Hi,  

I have had PA for many years with no issues and much enjoyment and pleasure  Recently started anew relationship in whichthe sex is really rough. This morning I noticed a slight blood discharge  from the piercing.  I'm concerned and am curious of what is going on and what should be done.

Irritated Apadravya Piercing

I received this message today:


Irritated ApadravyaHello Elayne, I was recently cleaning my apadravya and noticed that I have what looks like a tear or some sort of injury on the head of my penis. My piercing is fairly new, I believe it is 4 months old. I don't know if this is simply because it's still fresh or if I have something more serious to deal with. I have been sexually active but I haven't done anything rough or overexerting. I have worn protection and I haven't had any pain during sex. I have included a picture of the wound. It doesn't hurt, but it is (VERY SLIGHTLY) more tender to the touch than the rest of my penis. If you could respond to this ASAP then I would greatly appreciate it. This has been worrying me a lot. Thank you very much.

Migration or Rejection of a Prince Albert (PA) Piercing

This is a continuation of my discussion from my previous blog post about stretching a Prince Albert piercing:


How or what does migration look/feel like?  The stretch was done by the piercer who did the PA.  It felt like a lot of pressure for a very brief second when it was stretched last week.  I did not see the blood until I peed and like I said it was very little.  They used a horseshoe about a 1" I am guessing.  I normally wear underwear.  I had some crusting the first couple of days but that is all over with. I did soak it the first couple of days after the stretch.  It easily moves in the shower.  I wanted a barbell for the stretch but they were out.  The original piercing was done Nov 1st last year.

Thank you for your help.

New INTERVIEW Elayne Angel on The Fetish Show

If you would like to listen to a new interview with me, you can hear it here.

Me and my friends Dirk and Princess Zoe at The Fetish Show had a great time recording it recently. We talk about all sorts of piercings and more.

Be aware that it is fetish show, and not only about piercing. So if you're into piercing, but not otherwise open minded, then you might not appreciate the show.

If you have an open mind, then check it out!

Apaddravya Piercing Placement

I received a message from a reader of The Piercing Bible who wanted me to evaluate the placement of his apadravya piercing:


Apadravya Piercing-View from the TopHello, I recently purchased a copy of The Piercing Bible and I have to say that you have done an amazing job with it. I have read it from cover to cover and it has helped me immensely in choosing what kid of modifications I want, and how I want them done. Also, your body is an amazing work of art.

I'm way off topic but I felt like that had to be said. I recently had an apadravya done to celebrate my 18th birthday. I was wondering I could send you a picture and get your opinion on it. I would greatly appreciate it. Here are pictures of my piercing. I can't think you enough for looking at these for me. I have to request that you be as critical as possible.

The extra long bar was put in for healing purposes. I am having a smaller bar put in in a week. It will fit snug on the top and bottom like it's supposed to. Thank you for your time.
