I specialize in male genital piercing. It has been some of my most favorite work since I began piercing and have come to set the bar in Toronto when it comes to this type of work. I have performed thousands of male genital piercings over the years and changed the way in which this type of work has been done previously. When it comes to this work, I really do know dick!
P.A.: By far the most common male genital piercing, it enters through the urethra and exits through a hole pierced at the bottom of the glans. This piercing can be performed on BOTH circumcised and uncircumcised males. I perform this piercing anywhere from 10g and up. Most clients end up stretching this piercing to very large gauges, and find this piercing to be very versatile when it comes to jewellery. Most clients will purchase an assortment of different styles of rings and barbells to wear on different days or situations.
Frenum: Probably the second most common male genital piercing along with the guiche. This piercing is performed through the surface skin of the shaft of the penis underneath the glans. It is done across (horizontally) to the shaft. These piercings can be extended down the mid-line of the penis creating a frenum ladder. Most clients find these piercings along with the P.A. to be of little pain and discomfort. The starting gauge would be no smaller than a 10g and again I prefer to pierce with larger gauges.Guiche: A guiche piercing is placed through the skin between the anus and scrotum. This piercing is normally performed horizontally to the penis across the mid-line. Once healed clients may wear guiche weights in this piercing for added stimulation. Again, 10g being the smallest beginning gauge and upwards.Scrotal: Scrotal piercings are just that, piercings performed in the scrotum. These piercings can be done in just about any configuration; either down the center, off center, on the upper sides (which are called hafadas), or even performing several piercings to create a scrotal ladder. A scrotal ladder can be connected to a frenum ladder and even extended to create a guiche ladder as well! These piercing I perform at no smaller than a 10g.

Unfortunately, many piercers have NO specific training in genital piercings whatsoever! As an expert on the subject, and one who offers piercing problem consultations, I have bad news: a large percentage of genital piercings I see are improperly placed, often dangerously so.
The lorum piercing is located at the natural dividing line between the penis shaft and the scrotal sac. The name was coined in the 1980s while I was performing a genital piercing on the late Dan Kopka, my coworker at the time, at Gauntlet in Los Angeles. He wanted a frenum, he said, only lower.
The frenum is a versatile genital piercing that is second in popularity only to the Prince Albert. The name is derived from shortening the anatomical term frenulum or fraenum (the fibrous cord of connecting tissue, in this case on the underside of the penis), in which the piercing is placed.
Please note: All piercings are subject to your individual anatomy in terms of whether they can be performed. This is especially true with genital piercings and you will need to consult with your piercer to allow them to assess whether or not your preferred genital piercing will work for you. It is not uncommon for genitals to be unsuitable for one or more types of piercing, particularly with clitoris piercings and Dydoe piercings, as they require certain anatomical conditions.
If you are thinking of getting a genital piercing, rest assured that you are not making a mistake or doing something outrageous (just a bit mischievous!). Just make sure that you take good care of them and there will be no problems. These are the most easy to deal with piercings as they cannot be seen by anyone other than those who you choose.
Luckily, it is not all so frightening. While there are indeed some very painful and extreme genital piercings not all of them are particularly painful nor extreme. Indeed, there are many genital piercings that are actually less painful than piercings done on other body parts.
Frenum and lorum are male genital piercings that are very simple to perform. Frenum and lorum piercings are performed on the skin of the penis, typically centrally on the underside of the penis. Frenum piercings have different placements, from just underside of the penis head all the way down to the shaft. Lorum piercings are simply frenum piercings positioned very low on the shaft, almost on the base of the penis.
Prince Albert (PA) is the most popular male genital piercing. It is also different than other piercings on the list because it is not a surface piercing and it also look more extreme and painful. The truth is that PA piercings are not extreme and they are not particularly painful. This is great news for all people who wish to have a Prince Albert piercing but are scared of the pain!
There are two common procedures, one being very similar to a frenum piercing and the other being similar to inserting a subdermal implant, and requiring more medical knowledge and specialized tools. Either procedure is relatively safe with risks and healing much like a subdermal implant in any other part of the body, although, like many genital piercings, the generous blood flow to the genitals can reduce healing times considerably. Inflammation is very common, during and after healing, although careful healing can minimize this. Rejection is rare, but can occur.
Purpose: More men with genital piercings (GP) are presenting to health care facilities, yet a paucity of medical literature exists about their body modifications, health issues, and medical needs. Historically, they have turned to a piercer or the internet for medical advice which may put their health at risk by receiving inappropriate guidance or delayed treatment by an experienced, well-informed clinician.
A genital piercing should always be done by a licensed professional piercer. Not all states require piercers to be licensed, which means in some areas, someone with very little training can open a piercing salon. One indication that you've found a qualified professional is a certificate that indicates they are registered with the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) -- an organization that makes safety rules for people who do piercings. To be registered with the APP the person needs to demonstrate compliance with the organization's standards.
One of the most common types of female genital piercing is known as the vertical clitoral hood or VCH. This is a vertical piercing that's done through the skin that lies above the glans -- the rounded head -- of the clitoris. This results in direct stimulation of the clitoris during sexual intercourse. The VCH is popular partly because the direction of the piercing conforms to the natural shape of the woman's body. This kind of piercing typically takes four to six weeks to heal.
One of the most common male genital piercings is the Prince Albert or PA. With the PA, a ring is inserted through the urethra at the tip of the penis and then out through the bottom of the glans of the penis, which is the rounded head. After the piercing heals, the ring increases sensitivity of the pierced area, enhancing sexual pleasure. It also can enhance the pleasure for the man's partner. A PA typically takes four to six weeks to heal.
Genital piercings are, as the name suggests, those piercings that go through the genitals at some point or position. As it related to male genital piercings, there are 15 common variations to consider. Areas of the male genitals that are common for piercings include:

Fournier's gangrene is a rare and often fulminant necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum and genital region frequently due to a synergistic polymicrobial infection. This truly emergent condition is typically seen in elderly, diabetic, or otherwise immune-compromised individuals. Here, we report an unusual case of Fournier's gangrene due to excessive masturbation in an otherwise healthy 29-year-old male who presented to the emergency department complaining of two days of fever, vomiting, and diffuse myalgias. Upon further questioning, he also endorsed severe scrotal pain and swelling and frequent masturbation with soap as a lubricant resulting in recurrent penile erythema and minor skin abrasions. Examination of the patient's perineum was consistent with Fournier's gangrene and included significant erythema, edema, and calor of the penis and scrotum with a large malodorous eschar. He was given intravenous antibiotics and immunoglobulin and promptly underwent three surgical debridements of the scrotum and penis with split-thickness skin grafting. Complications from excessive masturbation are exceedingly rare, but as this case illustrates, they can be life threatening.
Objective: To provide quantitative and qualitative data that will assist evidence-based decision making for men and women with genital piercings (GP) when they present to urologists in ambulatory clinics or office settings. Currently many persons with GP seek nonmedical advice.
Another one of those "What the hell?" moments is triggered by the thought of genital piercings. Even as I write this article, the thought of genital piercings has me dumbfounded. But I must remember that here at Hopkins we are dedicated to the exploration and discovery of truth. So why exactly do people choose to pierce their most sensitive and private parts? How painful is it? Does it actually increase sexual stimulation? The first thing you should know is that genital piercings require commitment. You must be able to care for your newest bodily enhancement so as to prevent infection. The healing process can take up to 12 months, depending on the type of piercing. There are sexual limitations as well. Some piercings require less strenuous or vigorous sexual activities. It's up to you to decide if the responsibility is worth that extra pleasure. 2b1af7f3a8
