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?
Did you read this page of my site: http://piercingbible.com/female-genital-piercings ?
It explains that VCH 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:

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:

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.

Below is a correspondence exchange between me and a woman who had questions about genital (and ear cartilage) piercings for her and for her boyfriend:
I'm sure Atlanta was glad to have you back! Unfortunately for me, I've moved to Oklahoma for a while. I keep up with your schedule so I'm hoping that one of these days, I will have the pleasure and privilege to meet you.
I have two questions and since ladies should always go first, I will ask the question in regards to the Christina piercing. Lol. I've done some research on it and find it very attractive. Can you tell me more about it and is it and ok piercing for a woman to have?
Secondly, my boyfriend wants to get a frenum piercing however, it will be his first and only piercing and his main concern is the placing of the piercing itself. He was curious about, and sorry for being graphic but, masturbation and intercourse. After it's healed, will the placement affect what he does with his penis? I'm also curious myself since I'm the one who suggested it after we looked at several different kind of male gential piercings and he asked me which one I liked. Anyways, that's all I wanted to know.
Thank you. T.

Here's an exchange I had with a woman who suspected right away that there was something wrong with her Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) piercing:
I just had a HCH piercing done this afternoon, but 'm freaking out and need some help.... It's swollen a bit and all the time I check it, is still bleeding! Didn`t have any pain after getting it done, just felt a little unconfortable when I walked up to the supermarket few hours later. But is all about this bleeding that seems no to stop! Am so worried and thinking of taking it of... Please would love if you could give me an advice! Thanks ever so much!

My husband found this image (and I'd be very happy to credit whoever is responsible, if anyone can tell me!) and I just had to post it here.

The optimal location for the triangle piercing is at the natural base of the hood, as high as it can go and still be underneath the nerve bundle (that's where you are going to get maximum stimulation from the jewelry).
Photo above is of a properly placed triangle piercing with custom-bent circular barbell (so the jewelry rests back against the body, which is great for safety and comfort during healing!).
