Different types of Penis Piercings

Different types of Penis PiercingsLots of guys think body piercing is pretty cool and you might be one of them. If you're healthy and you're sure this is what you want, then there's no reason you shouldn't go for it. But first, learn how to have it done safely and make sure you don't put your health at risk.

Where is penis piercing done?
It is important that you get your piercing done by a professional with a good reputation, preferably someone who has been recommended to you. He or she will be able to advise you on the correct size jewellery and how to care for your piercing. Sterilized equipment and clean premises are extremely important to avoid transmission of a number of serious, life threatening diseases. Don't try piercing your own penis! You may place the piercing incorrectly or even give yourself an infection.

How is a penis piercing done?
Penis piercing is a simple procedure. A needle punctures the skin, and then the bar or ring is put through the opening made by it. The piercing can be through the foreskin, the skin on the shaft of the penis, the scrotum or the head of the penis. It must not pierce straight through the shaft of the penis as this could cause serious damage.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF PIERCING:

Different types of Penis PiercingsAmpallang Piercing
The Ampallang piercing is one of the less popular and more difficult male piercings. The hole is made horizontally through the head (glands) of the penis. This can either be done above, under, or through the urethra, depending on the individual. Some will recommend that the penis be erect before marking the glands for piercing, although it has also been stated that this is not necessary. Making sure the pierce is straight is crucial, due to sensitive nerves and important arteries. The process itself is slow and painful. It is important to make sure that the piercing is done in a straight line, and this is difficult to do due to the thick fibrous nature of the penis glands. This results in having to feed the needle through slowly, which can take several seconds and cause severe discomfort. The piercing itself can bleed for up to 5 days, and takes a while to heal.

Apadravya
The Apadravya is similar to the Ampallang, except that instead of a horizontal piercing through the penis glands (head) it is a vertical piercing. It has been mentioned in the Kama Sutra as an erotic piercing for both visual and physical arousal. Placement of the needle is also critical with this piercing or it could result in severe bleeding. If not treated immediately, it could result in death. Less severe possible complications are migration and/or rejection of the jewellery.

This piercing can be a slow and painful procedure due to the fibrous nature of the glands. The piercing can be placed through or around the urethra. The most important thing is to be sure that the corpus cavernosum is not damaged. (An experienced piercer will know this.)

Dydoe Piercing
The Dydoe piercing is preferred by, but not limited to, men who have been circumcised. It is also somewhat anatomy dependent, because the edge of the penis head (glands) must be large enough for the needle and jewellery. The needle is placed through this ridge on either the top or sides of the glands. Speculation has been made that it enhances sexual feeling that is lost due to circumcision. The piercing may be done as a single piercing, but is many times done in pairs or multiples. Some possible complications are slower healing due to a moist environment created by heavy foreskin (on an uncircumcised penis), rejection of the jewellery, or tearing due to rough sexual activity.

Foreskin PiercingForeskin Piercing
The foreskin piercing is obviously limited to the uncircumcised penis. Unlike ancient times when this was used as a chastity device for slaves, today it is used for sexual enhancement. The foreskin can be pierced with either single or multiple piercings. There are not too many complications usually involved with this piercing, although rough sexual activity could cause the piercing to tear. Care should be taken to ensure the piercing is well healed and stable enough before engaging in sexual intercourse.

Frenum Piercing
The Frenum is a very popular male piercing, second only to the Prince Albert. Its quick healing time and minimal pain and complications make for a very desirable piercing. The needle pierces through the flexible skin of the underside of the shaft just behind the glands (head) of the penis. There are two other variations of the frenum piercing: The lorum (lower frenum placed at the base of the shaft near the scrotum) and the ladder (several frenum piercings from the base of the shaft to the top).

Lorum Piercing The Lorum is a lower frenum placed at the base of the shaft near the scrotum. Care and healing times are essentially the same, but care should be taken to keep clean, dry and free of pubic hair during healing time.
Frenum Ladder A frenum ladder is a row of several frenum piercings from the base of the shaft up to the top. How many piercings you can wear on your ladder depends on shaft length and skin resilience.

Guiche (Perineum) Piercing
The Guiche (geesh') is also known as the Perineum because of its location. This is not a very common piercing because of the associated complications. The piercing itself is located under the scrotal sac near the anus. Due to temperature, lack of ventilation and perspiration, this piercing can be difficult to heal. There is also a large risk of jewellery migration and/or rejection, as it is essentially a surface piercing. This piercing is not recommended for men who ride bicycles or spend a large amount of their day sitting.

Prince Albert (genital piercing)Hafada/Scrotum
The scrotum piercing has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are that the scrotum can pretty much be pierced anywhere and is relatively painless due to the thin elasticity of the skin. The disadvantages are that the location and placement of the piercings can be irritated easily and make the healing process difficult. Natural perspiration and lack of ventilation can suffocate the piercing and make it difficult to heal. Scrotum piercing placement (depth) is very critical, as the sac cannot be penetrated or it could cause severe infection.

Shaving the scrotum can be helpful in aiding the healing process, but care should be taken to ensure it is rinsed clean of any soap or shaving product afterward.

Prince Albert
The Prince Albert is probably the most popular of all male piercings. The healing process is faster than most, and it has been considered to be the most sexually appealing male piercing. The Prince Albert piercing, in most cases, is performed by inserting a needle receiving tube into the urethra and then starting the needle from the outside and feeding it out through the tube. There are not many complications associated with this piercing. There is always a chance of rejection, but the likelihood is minimal. Even the wearer's own urine actually serves as a healing agent, and it is not necessary to clean the piercing after urination.

Reverse Prince Albert The other variation of the Prince Albert is the Reverse Prince Albert, which is essentially the same, but the jewellery circles around to the top of the glands (head) instead of the bottom.

Clean Gloves (genital piercing)How do I care for a penis piercing?

  • Do not remove the piercing while the wound is healing.
  • Keep the wound clean.
  • Watch out for signs of infection or allergy.
  • When having sex, wear a large, sturdy condom that has room for your jewellery and will not tear.

What are common problems with penis piercings?

  • Allergic reactions to jewellery. A rash on the area surrounding the piercing may mean that you are allergic to the metal. Surgical grade steel, titanium, gold or platinum are usually non-reactive.
  • Infections. Urinary infections sometimes occur. Signs and symptoms are burning sensation when you urinate and occasionally, blood in the urine. In addition, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B and hepatitis C are blood-borne diseases that can be caught from unsterilized needles. If you have any symptoms of infection, see a doctor.
  • Redness and soreness at the site of the piercing are common when you first have it done, but may also be a sign of infection in the piercing site. If this problem persists, see a doctor.
  • Bleeding. Any bleeding should only a small amount at the time of the piercing and should stop when a little pressure is applied. If the piercing has been incorrectly positioned it may cause problems. If your bleeding persists or gets worse, see a doctor.
