VCH

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!
T.

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:

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!

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.
VCH with Straight BarbellVCH with Straight Barbell

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.
