Now that you've made the decision to go for a popular Prince Albert piercing, or maybe the delicate Guiche, you may wonder what to look for in underwear for pierced male genitals. Is it better to use loose underwear? Or how about fitted underwear? What about mesh fabrics? Do you have to use the same type of underwear throughout the entire healing process? Is there any style of underwear that's better for Ampallang or Apadravya piercings?
A) Prince Albert B) Apadravya C) Guiche D) Hafada
Our answers should shed some light on your attitudes towards choosing different styles of underwear after getting a male genital piercing. As any professional piercer will tell you, the style of underwear to use must take several factors into consideration. Among these you should consider the exact physical location of the piercing, the expected amount of bleeding from the piercing location, the sensitivity and swelling of the pierced area, the possibility of trauma or impact while healing, and even your work or lifestyle.

I received a message from a piercer seeking advice about male genital piercings:
A client came in a few days ago and asked me if it was possible to do a vertical frenum ladder instead of a traditional one. I wasn't too sure so I told him I would research and find out for sure before I would attempt it. I know this is one thing you are very well known for and your answer would be the one I would go by. Also if any of the healing or after care is any different than a traditional frenum ladder or other possible complications please let me know all you can. Thank you so much!!
One of the important considerations is whether the tissue is pliable in the area he'd like to have pierced. You may want to start with just one piercing, rather than a ladder, to see how he heals. Also, the success of this would depend, to some extent, on his size differential between flaccid and erect states. On frenums that go in the usual direction, they can rest somewhat bunched up and close together without it causing any trauma. Then, when the piercee is erect, there is more space between the jewelry.
