Hood Piercing Helps Woman with Vulvodynia

I received a wonderful message from a woman who visited The Piercing Bible website, read my book, and became well educated about piercings.

She has a medical condition called vulvodynia and when I looked it up, I was quite surprised to find this information:

A recent study found that one in four women experience chronic vulvar pain at some point in their lives, making vulvodynia a very common disorder affecting women and girls of all ages and ethnicities.

The good news is that she made sounds decisions about getting pierced and wrote to me about her highly successful VCH piercing:

Female Genital Piercing and Masturbation

I received an interesting email from a woman who is interested in a genital piercing, but had concerns about whether a VHC would affect her preferred style of masturbation:

Hi,

I wanted to thank you for maintaining your website as a really informative resource on genital piercings.

I want a stimulating piercing and have been told I'm not a triangle candidate but could get a VCH. I like to masturbate by rubbing the shaft of my clitoris through my hood - have your clients reported that it's harder to reach the clit shaft if there's jewelry there?

Thanks so much! D.

Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) Piercing Discussion (with Photos)

I received a message with some photos from a woman who had received a Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing, but she was disappointed with it. She sought the piercing to enhance her sexual pleasure, and she was not experiencing any added enjoyment or sensations. I saw the photo, and this was my comment:

Low "Triangle" Piercing Actually Two Inner Labia Piercings

I received this message from a woman who got a "triangle" piercing done in NYC, and it was nowhere near where a triangle should be placed:

"Triangle" Piercing that is far too lowI just got this piercing done at a pretty reputable studio in NYC. But after reading up (even more) and seeing even more pics online, I'm wondering if it was placed too low? Would you please see the pic attached and give me your professional opinion? Thanks!! I wish you were near, but I felt confident in the piercer I ended up choosing locally :-)

Botched VCH (Vertical Clitoral Hood) Piercing Redone Successfully

Below is an email exchange I had with a woman in the UK who got a botched VCH piercing, and then got it redone properly:


Hi! My name is S., I live in the UK. I looked at your site before getting my VCH, I am happy with my piercing but it dosn't look like any on the VCH I've seen on your site and wondering maybe he's made a mistake? It's still a bit swollen as I've only had it a few days, I hope to hear back from u soon! Thanks! S. =)

Bad VCH piercing on the side of the hood--upside downHI S.,

You definitely do NOT have a properly placed VCH piercing. You have a piercing located on the side of your clitoral hood. A VCH goes in the center.  Further, the jewelry is not touching your clitoris, which is the thing that is potentially stimulating about the VCH piercing. Also the way the jewelry is resting, the piercing is higher on the inside of your hood than it is on the outside. This is not a proper placement and it causes your clitoral hood to be hooked over the top of the jewelry, so you're likely to get migration, scarring, or both. Additionally, you can expect that it will be uncomfortable, or downright painful.

I'd ask for my money back, take the jewelry out, and seek a more qualified piercer to do it for you.

Yet Another Surface VCH Piercing

I just got yet another message from a woman who got a totally botched VCH piercing. This was especially upsetting since she had actually been on this website to learn about genital piercings before getting hers done!


I used your site for research about a vch piercing before actually getting it.  Unfortunally I got it.  I was not happy wiAnother Surface VCH Piercingth how it came out, I dont think the pictures are showing it very well, but i can actually see the barbell through where I got the piercing. I contacted the piercer and he has offered to redo it free of charge.  I just wanted your opinion on if I'm completely crazy for thinking it is messed up or if I was correct for taking it out.  Also, I took it out two hours ago, but I am feeling discomfort, it isn't exactly pain but it doesnt feel natural.  Is there any suggestions you have?  I'm doing the sea salt soaks even though I took it out until it heals.  Please Help!

Gold Curved Bar for Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

 I receeived this message from a woman who wanted to know if she could wear gold body jewelry in a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing:


I'm interested in a vch piercing and my question is will a 14k curved bar be appropiate for this type of piercing?


My reply:

Inappropriate VCH (Clitoral Hood) Piercing Jewelry

I received yet another message about a botched VCH piercing. The difference was that it was done in a studio where I do refer to a particular piercer! However, the individual I refer to wasn't available so it was done by a different piercer. BEWARE: if I don't list the individual piercer's name on my referrals page, I am NOT providing a referral to them. Some studios have piercers that vary widely in terms of skills and exVCH Piercing with Overly Long Straight Barbellperience. Please be careful!!!


"Hi Elayne, How are you? I'm messaging you because I got a vch piercing about 3 days ago from XXX. The piercer you recommended wasn't in so I let another piercer at the location do it. Now I'm concerned that it wasn't done right (placement) and that she used the wrong type of jewelry.  I attached is a pic that I took myself, hopefully you can let me know what's up, and what I need to do if anything. Thanks in advance."
