The vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercing is by far the most popular piercing I perform. It has a number of benefits, as genital, "clit piercings" or "vaginal" piercings go! 

First off is the fact that the VCH is a hood piercing with the potential to add sensation during sexual activities. This is the primary reason most women seek it, or any piercing of the "lady parts" as some refer to the genital area. In the case of the VCH, this is how it works:

The majority of women have a clitoral hood that partially or completely covers the clitoral glans--the clitoris. That's the hood's job, much like the foreskin covers the glans of the penis. However, many women enjoy (or "need") more direct stimulation than they can receive unless a hand is involved. With the VCH piercing, jewelry rests beneath the hood, atop the clitoris. So, when there is activity with friction, pressure, or motion in the area, there is more direct clitoral stimulation, since the jewelry is in contact with it.

Variations in individual build, piercing, placement, and jewelry size and style will affect how the jewelry feels. And that leads us to another benefit of the VCH piercing: versatility. There is an endless array of jewelry options, and each different post length and shape (curved, straight, or J-curve), and ball or gem size will feel a little (or a lot) different!

Aesthetics is another benefit, as the VCH is quite an attractive hood ornament! Most women feel empowered and beautified after carrying out their decisions to get pierced, and many find that their nether regions look extra pretty when ornamented with some jewelry 

One of the reasons the VCH the so popular among the female genital piercings, is that the majority of women are anatomically suited to it. Most (but not all) have a hood that is deep enough, and space for jewelry to rest there without excessive pressure from the pubic mound above. 

Further benefits are that the VCH tends to be comfortable because it is a vertical piercing, which matches the vertical orientation of the region. And, on many builds, the jewelry rests tucked in and well protected so it is not subject to trauma and irritation from daily activities.

If you wish to know whether you're eligible for the VCH or any of the other female piercing options, I am happy to do an online (photo) anatomy consultation, even if you plan to go to another piercer. I can also evaluate any existing piercings if you wish to know whether they're optimally placed for your anatomy. Shallow VCH piercings, and surface VCH piercings are terribly common errors! This site contains four pages of blog post listing for the former, and five for the latter!!!

If you won't be getting pierced by me, please make sure to find a good piercer!

Another of the benefits of the VCH piercing is that it tends to be easy to receive--at least when I do your piercing. I'm extremely quick, and smooth, so the actual procedure takes just a matter of moments, and the sensation fades away quite quickly. (I apply a cooling pad as soon as the jewelry is in, which is instantly soothing!) The piercing itself takes but a moment! I've had friends and partners of piercees present who commented, "I was watching and I missed it!" It is very rare that anyone complains of discomfort even just a just a few minutes after the piercing! Nor do women tend to find it bothersome after that. Of course, some tenderness is to be expected and it is best to avoid wearing tight, inflexible pants or riding a bicycle or a horse right away. But short of that, most women find that it is not even noticeable during daily activities. Once dressed after the procedure, I most frequently hear the comment, "It feels just fine--I don't feel anything at all." Really! 

Additionally, it the VCH also extremely quick healing. It heals as fast as any part does on the human body--about the same healing time as ear lobe piercings: about 4-6 weeks. Of course, every human body is unique, and sometimes it may take 8 weeks to heal. But when you consider that a navel piercing has a healing time of at least 6 months, and that nipple piercings (though worth it!) also take at least that long, then you realize the VCH is super fast to heal.

Yet another benefit is that it is easy to care for. I simply suggest that you spray it 3-5x daily with Briotech. That's it!
