Do you like to take your body to the edge? There are many ways to introduce some more extreme elements to how you enjoy pleasure and feel unique sensations. Some of us like to try acrobatic sex positions while others engage in varying levels of BDSM. Whatever you’re into, it is all about the rush and the thrill of different nerve endings experiencing new sensations.
But the activities mentioned above are temporary, in the moment thrills. Sure, they feel great at the time and you’ll surely do them over and over again. However, if you’d like to take some sexy sensations away with you to enjoy quietly on your own—even in non-sexual situations, then a great little secret is a little body modification.
Why do people get genital piercings?
Genital piercings are a great way to add some spice to your sexytime and non-sexytime body feelings because they are meant to be permanent. While some of you out there are probably cringing at the idea of a needle going anywhere near your junk, there are some distinct advantages to adding some bling to your tender bits.
There are three main reasons people take the plunge on genital piercing. First and foremost, they like the way it looks. Second, they like the way the piercing feels in their skin, both generally and sexually. And finally, their piercing can also provide their partners with more sexual pleasure.
There are two main types of piercing for both people with penises and people with vulva. For the penis folk, the most common is the Prince Albert. For this one, the jewellry is inserted through the urethra and comes out where the glans and the cock shaft join. Another common penis piercing is called the Jacob’s Ladder or Frenum Ladder. features multiple barbell piercings which could be on the top, sides or underside of the penis. Other pleasurable piercings sites include the Taint—the skin between the scrotum and the anus, the foreskin (for those that have it), and the sensitive connective skin between the cock and the pubic mound.
For those with vulva, a popular piercing is the clitoral hood. This is more common than the clitoris itself because the clit is extremely sensitive. You can choose from two types of clitoral hood piercings. The horizontal piercing features the jewellry pierced right above the clitoris. The vertical piercing is situated above the clitoris and rests under the clitoral precupe. Because of the position, this piercing provides more sexual stimulation than the horizontal version. The labia majora and minora are also popular spots for new body holes, and can be pierced with single or multiple rings.
If you do decide to take the plunge and experience some needle fun, you do need to take some precautions. Be sure to find a reputable piercer who follows safety protocol. After you’ve been poked, follow your piercer’s advice on cleaning and caring for your new addition. One of those bits of advice is going to be that you need to abstain from sex for the short term. That could be a couple of weeks or it could even be a couple of months. I know, that sucks, but remember, you’re in this for the long haul. Treat that genital piercing right and you and your partners will greatly enjoy it for years to come.
