Prince Albert

Ampallang Issues--Barbell Fit on Uncircumcised Penis

I received this message from a man who had read my book:

First I would like to thank you personally for writing such a great book on piercing. I have found it to be informative and a great support throughout my different piercings.

About six years ago I had a PA and an ampallang procedure done around the same time, my PA has stayed with me ever sense (currently stretched to a 2) but my ampallang had to be retired after only a few days. The problem I had is that my piercer suggested a long bar as an initial choice for jewelry and I have a lot of foreskin. The pressure was excrutiating. My lover believes it would be a fun piercing but I am not sure how or if this piercing will be possible considering my anatomy. I've also yet to see many images of uncut men with this piercing on the popular websites. Have you encountered this situation and can you shed some light on what us uncut men can do to have a successful chance with this piercing?

Sincerely yours,
E.

Questions about Stretching a Prince Albert Piercing (with photos)

 I received a message and some photos from a man who had received a Prince Albert piercing:

Basically my PA piercing is right in the middle of the strip of skin  in the middle of the underside of my penis. I find it very hard to stretch and very sensitive with like a donut of raised skin around the hole.

 It's something I can live with at present but I currently wear a 4 mm ring, I would like to reach 8mm within a 1/2 year, and I am wondering it its better to have it re pierced to the side after I let it heal or I  should just carry on.Prince Albert Question (with photos)

 All the prictures I have seen of PA's close up are to the side of  that stip of flesh, and none have the raised donut around the hole.
 
When I try and stretch it, the donut goes a very pale white, which to
 me indicates no blood circulation at all. So if I stretch to a 5mm and it is tight, will that white skin just die off and peel away or do I run a serious risk of infection and necrosis. Thank you for offering your opinion.

From what I can see the piercing appears properly placed for your anatomy. The piercing should only go off to the side when the center is too webbed to pierce--but yours is not. There is no reason to repierce.  properly placed for your anatomy. The piercing should only go off to the side when the center is too webbed to pierce--but yours is not.

Double Apadravya Piercing Possible? (With Photos)

I received a message and a few photos from a gentleman who was interested in a double apadravya (he already had one):

Apadravya plus dot marked for 2nd ApadravyaI have read a lot about your expertise in the field of piercings. Attached is pic of my current apadravya with marks of where I would like to have a second apadravya. When I first talked to my piercer, she said that with that placement it might make it hard to heal as the top is in the corona and the bottom is in the shaft. Thus creating a movement difference. I saw pictures of a guy that got off centered RPAs and PAs for the purpose of eventually wearing them as an apadravya X. I was wondering if I could do something similar to get a PA/RPA in those spots for healing and stretching separately? Then when after healed from the final stretch put in a barbell. I don't think it would work well to do a shaft apadravya as it would be really close to my frenums.
Thanks for any advice or information you could provide.

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. 
J.

Piercer's Questions on PTFE, Ampallang and Apadravya Piercings & More

I recently had an exchange of correspondence with a piercer who asked some interesting questions:

I have been piercing for 10 years now in a shop where my husband is the awesome tattoo artist. I just want to be yet another one to thank you for all of your tireless dedication to this industry. I just had a quick question about surface piercings done with polytetrafluoroethylene. At first when these surface piercings became the thing to do around here, I would perform them with the traditional bars for hips, clavicals, Madisons-you name it. I stuck them all with bars. Now this new material seems so much better for healing and does not leave the same scars that the bars do. I just wanted to get your opinion on it. Which is better, the polytetrafluoroethylene or the traditional surface bars?

Bleeding Prince Albert Piercing (After Stretching)

I got a message from a gentleman with a healed Prince Albert piercing. He was alarmed at seeing some blood after masturbating:

Hello, this is a bit scary. I got a PA a while back. About 5 years back to be exact. All went well, I've since managed to stretch to an 8G. Two days ago, I switched to a captive bead ring. This took a little work, as the bead did not want to pop into the jewelry.

Weird thing is, I um. Well I pleasured myself today, and to my horror was a bunch of blood mixed with semen.

1) It doesn't look swollen, infected, etc
2) There was absolutely no pain before during or after this happened, nor while urinating, rinsing, anything.
3) It sometimes feels a tiny bit sensitive, but nothing I haven't felt before when adjusting to new jewelry.

It definitely freaked me out as the only other time it ever bled was 5 years ago when I first got the piercing.
