I ran into this story online of a Prince Albert piercing I did for a client when I was in San Francisco:
Finally got it done. I'm a little over fifty years of age and got it done. I first convinced my wife to get a VCH but then she wanted to get her actual clit pierced and a triangle piercing. She got her VCH about a month prior to getting her clit and triangle done and then I told her I would do a PA. She said it was ok with her. I'll let her write her own story since this is mine. I had bought the Piercing Bible and we read all we could with the type of piercings that we wanted to do.
We saw Elayne Angel in San Francisco and got pierced at Cold Steel Elayne asked me to send her some photo's first to see if I was suitable for a PA since I am uncircumsized. She said I was so I got an appointment with her. I undressed and the little fellow got even smaller just thinking about getting the head of my dick pierced. I had read that getting the recieving tube placed down the uretha was a pain, but when she placed the recieving tube in me it was no big deal as a matter of fact I enjoyed it. Then it was time for the actual piercing and the needle looked like the end of a shotgun, but with a little sting it was done. Again no big deal and just a little blood for the next couple of days.
I started with a 10ga but have since gone to a 6ga and I plan on going to a 0ga or a 00ga. I really enjoy it and the sex is great. I did jack off after the fourth day (with the wife watching) and had some blood in the cum. Waited a week more before we had sex and what an experience. I plan on getting an apradavya and a frenum ladder in the near future. There wasn't any pain with this type of piercing and if you are thinking about it I would suggest that you go for it.

I found that I'd been quoted in someone's blog post today about the Prince Albert piercing. I helped to settle the case on whether Prince Albert himself actually had a Prince Albert piercing (he didn't):
Another thing: according to The Piercing Bible by Elayne Angel (p. 156), the healing time for a Prince Albert is "4 to 8 weeks or longer". Now, in a time when infection could not be reliably controlled, who is going to pierce themselves anywhere - let alone somewhere that delicate? Are you beginning to smell a hoax? In her book, Angel confirms my suspicions that Prince Albert did not have a Prince Albert, as does Matthew Sweet in Inventing the Victorians. So why do so many people think he did? Where did this "dressing ring" thing get started? According to Angel, these stories were made up by a man who called himself Doug Malloy (real name Richard Simonton). He is considered the father of modern piercing culture in the US.

I received this question about Dolphin Piercing:

I got a question today that I hadn't been asked before:
Hi, I would be grateful if you could give me some advice regarding penis piercings. I have just realised that my boyfriends piercing has come off during sex. i found the hoop part to it, but could not find the ball part. I would be grateful if you could offer me some advice as to what I should do next. Many thanks.Hi, Is it possible that the ball was gone before you had sex and was never inside you? Even if the ball had been inside you at some point, it may have fallen out and gotten lost without your awareness. If a manual examination with your finger (or your boyfriend's finger) does reveal the missing jewelry and you have reason to believe it is inside you, or you feel stressed out over wondering, you may want to visit your gynecologist for a more thorough exam. It is extremely unlikely that the ball has gone far (for example into your cervix or uterus) as you would feel pain and cramping from a foreign object there. As they say, "What goes up, must come down" and that likely probably here as well. Let me know what happens! Angel
