Genital piercings are among the most misunderstood piercings. Reserved only for ourselves and those we are intimate with, they tend to stay out of daily view and daily conversation.
But, the truth is that more people have genital piercings than you might think—many popular piercing studios report conducting a couple hundred genital piercings per year.
If you’re like many people, you might cringe at the thought of getting pierced in such a sensitive area? Why would you ever want to have a stranger stick a needle through your netherregions?
While making things more exciting in the bedroom is one reason to get a genital piercing it’s not the only one. Here are some of the biggest reasons why people choose to get their genitals pierced.
Depending on the placement of the genital piercing, they have been known to increase the sexual pleasure of the wearer.
The VCH piercing, for example, is placed so that the ball ends of the body jewelry add extra stimulation to the clitoris during sex, helping the wearer to reach climax. (In fact, many who have gotten the VCH piercing have claimed that they were unable to orgasm until they had gotten the piercing.)
The Prince Albert piercing, located at the tip of the penis through the urethra, has also been known to increase the pleasure of the wearer.
While everyone’s preference is different, so there’s no guarantee that genital piercings will improve your sexual experience, there are quite a few options designed to increase sensation, especially if you’ve struggled to reach orgasm in the past.
It’s always better when both parties involved in a sexual encounter are having fun. Many genital piercings, especially on or around the penis, are designed to increase the sexual pleasure of the wearer’s partner. These piercings are strategically placed to stimulate key areas and make things just a little more exciting.
The placement you choose will depend upon your preferred partner—are you attracted to the same sex or the opposite sex?—so it’s important for you to do proper research before getting pierced for this reason. If you have a long term sexual partner, you might consider talking to them and what they’d prefer.
The third most popular reason for getting your genitals pierced is simple: it looks pretty.
When you’re getting ready for a sexy evening, it’s not uncommon to slip on some lingerie. Why not decorate other areas as well? Genital piercings like the Christina (placed at the top of the vulva) or the pubic surface piercing (a surface piercing placed in the pubic area above the shaft of the penis) likely won’t add any stimulus.
However, a glint of jewelry decorating that area could add excitement in its own way. Decorated with the right jewelry, it’ll not only look pretty but show that you took the time and the energy to make yourself look good for your partner.
If you’ve ever thought about getting a genital piercing, you might be surprised to learn that there are tons of styles meant to accomplish different things. Before you decide which genital piercing you want, you should fully research the different piercing types and take some time to think about why you want your genital piercing. Once you do, and you gain the courage to make the piercing appointment, you might be happier with it than you ever imagined.
