Gold as Body Jewelry Material

14K Gold - Spiral

14K Gold – Spiral

Gold is a beautiful and elegant material that is often used for jewelry. This noble metal is valuable and stunning so it’s not surprising that some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces in the world are made of gold.

Gold also makes a good body jewelry material. However, there are some things to keep in mind before you use any body jewelry piece made of gold. It’s vital to ensure safety and to know how to choose gold jewelry pieces properly. You need to know this info to use gold as body jewelry material properly.

What Gold to Use

Gold is a noble metal that’s often used for traditional jewelry as well as body jewelry. In order to be suitable for piercings, however, gold has to be of specific quality. This is important to keep in mind in order to keep your piercing safe and problem-free.

The first thing to think about is the purity. Pure gold is a very soft metal. It’s about as soft as lead so it’s not the best body jewelry material. All gold with purity higher than 18 is simply too soft. Such a soft metal can be easily scratched, which can lead to numerous problems. Scratches can easily hurt or irritate the body, so jewelry made of such soft gold is nod body friendly and definitely not safe to use.

Another thing to keep in mind are the alloys. These alloys are other metals and elements added to gold in order to improve its characteristics. All gold except for pure 24k gold contains alloys. These alloys make the metal harder and less prone to scratches and bending. However, these alloys can be irritants in some cases, so it’s vital to keep the gold’s purity high enough so the contents of alloys in the gold is low.

To strike a perfect balance between purity and hardness, it is recommended to use only 14k  gold for body jewelry (or perhaps 18k, in rarer cases). The best way to ensure safety is to use only 14k gold for body jewelry.

Perhaps the most important thing to ensure safety is to use only jewelry made of nickel-free gold. Nickel allergies are very serious so jewelry containing nickel should be avoided at all costs. That’s why it’s important to check that any body jewelry piece you wish to use is nickel-free.

Additional Tips

  • Gold plated and gold overlay jewelry is not recommended. It is not body-friendly and should be avoided. Same goes for gold-filled and vermeil jewelry. This jewelry is not really made of gold: the gold layer is too thin and can easily be scratched to reveal the underlying metal that might not be body-friendly at all. In order to avoid problems you should never use gold plated and similar jewelry as your body jewelry.
  • Gold is NOT recommended as initial jewelry. Piercings in healing (fresh piercings) should never use gold jewelry. Body fluids can easily corrode the base metals in the alloy and lead to discoloration of the surrounding tissue. It can also lead to gold allergy, in case the person is allergic to gold. For this reason, it’s best to avoid gold as initial jewelry material and stick to medical-grade materials such as titanium or 316LVM Surgical Steel.
  • Gold makes a good jewelry material for fully healed piercings, as long as it’s 14k and nickel-free.
  • The autoclaving process can sometimes discolor the gold, but it won’t make it unsafe to use.
  • Gold is usually available in at least two variants: yellow and white gold. Other types of gold can also be used for body jewelry, such as rose gold.
  • Gold jewelry should be kept clean and polished regularly in order to keep it shiny and keep its quality.

How to Tell if a Piercing Studio is Bad?

studioThere are many good, reputable piercing studios with knowledgeable professionals. Getting a quality and safe piercing service is not rare these days. However, there is still a large number of sketchy, bad piercing studios popping all over the place. In order to avoid them and to prevent any possible unsafe and dangerous experiences, it’s important to know how to tell a bad piercing studio from a good one. Here are some of the most common signs that a piercing studio is bad:

It’s Unprofessional

A good piercing studio depends on its professional staff and piercers with good skills. Bad studios have amateurs who do not know what they’re doing. This is extremely dangerous. You do not want to rely on such individuals to perform your piercings.

There are many different ways in which this lack of knowledge can manifest itself. They won’t be able to answer your questions and they will never be specific enough about your needs. This is a very dangerous sign, since it signals that the piercers are ignorant or inexperienced. Bad piercers can endanger your health so you should never agree to be pierced by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

It’s Cheap

Let’s face it: you get what you pay for. Beware of studios offering suspiciously low prices for piercings and jewelry. There is a reason why getting pierced at a mall kiosk is cheap – and unsafe. If you find a piercing studio with prices as cheap as a mall kiosk, ask why. No reputable studio can offer such low prices. They have to make some money so their service is not the best. Even more, it should make you wonder about their autoclave and sanitary conditions in the studio, as well as skills of their piercers.

That not to say that a studio has to be overly expensive or that it should never offer a discount or a coupon, or that their jewelry has to be pricey. There is a difference between marketing and bad service. You should be able to tell who is serious and who’s keeping the prices low because something important is missing in their quality.

It’s Dirty

Keep in mind that piercing is a procedure done on the body. As such, a studio has to adhere to all the highest standards. Hygiene has to be perfect inside the entire studio, especially in the room where piercings are performed. While that room should be sterile, other parts of the studio have to be clean as well.

Dirty counters, waiting rooms and toilets are a bad sign. If you notice the lack of hygiene and attention in these places you should rightfully wonder about the studio’s ability to keep the piercing process sterile and safe.

It’s Not Playing by the Rules

A sketchy studio is not doing all in the way that is recommended by the industry. Some of these studios do not follow the industry’s guidelines. Furthermore, some of these studios are even doing some illegal things, such as piercing minors. It’s not surprising for such studios to lack a spore test or a proper autoclave.

In short, these studios are not doing their work the way it’s required by the industry. By ignoring guidelines or performing illegal activities they are endangering the health of their clients.

Body Modifications and Public Reaction

Piercing PublicThere are many people who have at least one piercing (or tattoo). Body modifications have become very common and accepted in many areas of life. They are especially popular among young people and certain subcultures. Piercing, tattoos and other body modifications are a great way to express ourselves and change our appearance any way we want. It is a great way to add something new and to enjoy our bodies more.

In essence, a decision to get a piercing or a tattoo should be a personal one. It concerns you and nobody else. Your body, your choice. This is your own way to express yourself and it should not concern other people.

Public Reactions

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work that way in real life. There are many people who are still highly prejudiced against people with piercings, tattoos and other body modifications. Their reasons for hate are different, but have one thing in common: they want to police your own body and tell you what you can and can’t do with it.

The truth is, piercings, tattoos and body modifications do not harm anyone. In most of the cases, they have nothing to do with other people. Despite this, there are many out there who’d like to make your body modifications their business. Sometimes, it’s about expressing their opinion (usually negative), but it can often go beyond that.

As a person with piercings, tattoos or other body modifications, you probably know about all the comments, reactions and questions you face in everyday life. Many times, those reactions are positive, but what about the other ones? What happens when public has a negative reaction to your body modifications or think you are a bad person because of them?

In many situations, you can simply ignore it. These people are not worth your time and you don’t owe them any explanation. Your body is yours and you don’t have to listen to their negative reactions. If they don’t want to have any body modifications, fine – you don’t make them. It’s their choice not to have any piercings, body jewelry, tattoos or other body modifications and it’s not your place to tell them they’re wrong about it. Because it’s not wrong for them. Similarly, they have no right to tell you your body modifications are wrong, because they are not wrong for you.

This way to treat public reaction is a good way to make people mind their own business. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy like this. There are some situations in which public reaction can have negative consequences for you, especially in the professional setting.

What if Your Boss Doesn’t Like Your Piercings?

Let’s face it: there is still stigma about piercings, tattoos and other body modifications. It’s therefore sad – but not surprising – to know that many companies and employers discriminate against people with body modifications. It’s still difficult to find employment if you have visible modifications, and while it should not be that way and while we should fight against it, it’s important to realize it’s happening.

So, what to do in this situation? There are several options. The easiest one would be to simply quit your job or refuse a job offer. However, this may not be a wise thing to do because most of us need jobs to survive.

Unfortunately, it means a bit of a compromise. It’s always best to seek employment with companies that do not mind body modifications, if this is not possible, try to talk to your employer and come up with a compromise.

In many cases, it may mean hiding your piercings or tattoos. You can approach this in several ways. For example, you may wear simple, discreet jewelry that will not draw attention to your piercings. Or you may try to hide your body modifications with clothes.

In some situations, you may go with special hider jewelry or retainers. These jewelry pieces are specially made to hide your piercings and to be discreet while preserving your piercing and preventing it to shrink. This may be a good way to go if your boss requires no visible jewelry. However, you need to talk to your employer about this.

Whatever you do, try to avoid jewelry removal. Many piercings shrink quickly so you may have difficulties to insert a jewelry piece after not wearing anything for hours.

Finally, you have an option of retiring your piercing. It is an extreme measure, but in some cases may be the only option if you wish to keep a job you like but your boss is absolutely against piercings. Keep in mind that you can usually get repierced later, so think about this retirement as temporary.

Removing Jewelry

Ring Opening Pliers

Ring Opening Pliers

Sometimes, it is necessary to remove your body jewelry. You may wish to change the jewelry and wear another piece, or you may wish to go without jewelry for a while. Whatever your reasons may be, you need to know how to open and remove your jewelry quickly and easily.

Different jewelry types are removed in different ways. In order to remove a jewelry piece, you need to know how this piece is designed and how to properly open it so you can take it out.

Here are quick tips on how to remove the most popular jewelry types:

Captive Bead Rings

Captive Bead Rings and other similar captive jewelry types come with a special bead that has to be removed in order to open the jewelry. To open your ring, it’s best to grab the bead with one hand and the ring with the other and then pull them into the opposite directions. This should make the bead pop out of the ring.

This process is sometimes difficult so you may need to use pliers. There are special Ring Opening Pliers you need to use for this. In case you wear large gauge jewelry, it’s best to use specialized Large Gauge Pliers.

Fixed, Seamless and Continuous Rings

These rings are a bit different than CBRs. Fixed rings have the bead attached to one side of the ring. Seamless and continuous rings do not use beads at all. They are built to be completely circular, usually with parts fitting nicely into each other. To open these rings, you should grab the bead (or, in the case there is no bead, one side of the ring) with one hand and the ring itself with the other hand and pull gently. Make sure to perform a small but firm twist. This should make ends separate and the ring will be opened.

Barbells

Barbells tend to be easy to open, comparing to the rings. These jewelry types have a bar (straight, curved, circular, spiral, etc.) and a bead on the each end. The beads are screwed on the shaft. To open these barbells, simply unscrew the bead from the shaft. The same logic can be applied to labret studs.

Nostril Jewelry Pieces

Jewelry specially designed for nostril piercings is typically shaped in such a way to prevent jewelry to slip out of the piercing. It means it’s either curved or it has a small ball on the end to keep jewelry in place.

These pieces are sometimes struggle to get in and out, because they have to be tight enough to stay in the piercing during use. To remove them, you need to be aware of their shape and then carefully pull, move and turn the jewelry until it’s out.

Eear Plugs, Tunnels and Earlets

These jewelry pieces are specially designed for stretched lobes. There are many different types of plugs, flesh tunnels and earlets. Some are smooth and require O rings to keep them inside the piercing. These jewelry pieces are easily removed by simply taking the O rings out.

Flared jewelry pieces, especially double flared plugs and tunnels may be more difficult to remove, so you need to know how to manipulate the jewelry out of the piercing.

Shrinking

Keep in mind that piercings tend to shrink rapidly after jewelry is removed. This is particularly true for new, fresh piercings but even older and fully healed piercings are not immune to it. Our bodies are quick to close the tissue, which will result in a rapid shrinkage of your piercing.

As a result, you may find out that it’s difficult to reinsert the jewelry. It may be uncomfortable or even painful. In some extreme cases it might become impossible to reinsert your jewelry. Shrinkage occurs very quickly, and it starts as soon as jewelry is taken out. Keep this in mind if you intend to remove your jewelry and go without it for some time.

Jewelry for People with Allergies and Sensitive Skin

Nickel Allergy ProblemThere are many sensitive people prone to allergies and other skin problems. There are also people with a very sensitive skin. Does it mean these people cannot enjoy body jewelry or piercings?

Good news: if you are prone to allergies or if you have a sensitive skin, it does NOT mean you can’t wear body jewelry. The trick is just to find jewelry that will not trigger your allergies and that will be comfortable for you to wear.

Unsafe Materials and Alloys

In most of the cases, to avoid allergies, skin sensitivity and other problems, it’s important to wear jewelry made of safe materials. Safe materials are those materials that are body-friendly and medical grade. These materials will not cause allergies in most people.

It’s important to understand what causes allergies in the first place. Most of the time, what people are allergic to are various alloys present in metal jewelry. Alloys are mixtures of elements. It means that even if the jewelry is made of a main element, it may contain traces of other elements, which can prove to be dangerous for you. Alloys are often added to enhance the properties of the main element, such as to make it stronger, or softer, or to change its color. This may work, but it can also be dangerous if you are allergic to the alloy.

Avoid Nickel Allergy

By far the most common is nickel-allergy. It is very common because nickel is a very popular alloy used in many metals. Nickel is sometimes used in gold jewelry, so all gold pieces containing gold can cause a serious allergy.

For this reason, it’s important to wear only nickel-free body jewelry. Whenever you choose your jewelry piece, especially if it’s gold, make sure it’s nickel-free. This is the only way to avoid nickel allergy.

Another material to avoid is steel. It may also contain nickel. However, not all steel jewelry is created equally. Surgical Steel is a safe material. This is a medical-grade jewelry material that does not contain nickel.

However, nickel allergy is not the only problem you may encounter. Depending on your body, you may be allergic to a different alloy. This is why it’s highly recommended to check all the alloys present in a jewelry piece or to stick to hypoallergenic jewelry only.

Hypoallergenic Jewelry

Hypoallergenic jewelry is the one that is specially made to be safe for people who have allergies and sensitive skin. This jewelry is made of materials that are known not to cause allergies so it’s generally safe even for the more sensitive users.

However, keep in mind that “hypoallergenic” is more of a generic term used by jewelry companies. There is no strict regulation what “hypoallergenic” actually means. It may simply mean that it’s nickel-free. On the other hand, it may mean it’s made of the medical-grade materials specially made for sensitive people.

The safest body jewelry materials are those that are considered to be “hypoallergenic”. The most popular of them are:

  • Titanium
  • Niobium
  • Surgical Steel (especially the medical-grade 316LVM Surgical Steel)

You may also use gold jewelry, as long as it’s nickel-free.

Another good way to go is to use non-metallic jewelry pieces. Many of these materials, such as acrylic or Bioplast jewelry, is generally safe to use even by people with sensitive skin and allergies.

What about Organic Jewelry?

Another good way to go is to use organic jewelry (made of wood, stone, glass, horn or bone). If you choose to do this, however, make sure that you are not allergic to any of the organic components of your jewelry.

Organic jewelry is very beautiful and can be very effective but it can cause additional problems because it can’t be sterilized as much as metal jewelry. You need to make sure that organic jewelry is made of a material you are not allergic to. Also, it’s highly recommended to wear this type of jewelry only in fully healed piercings.

Why You Should Never Buy Cheap Jewelry

Cheap Body JewelryIt’s sometimes tempting to buy cheap jewelry at a mall kiosk or a similar place. You might want to save a few bucks and some of the pieces offered there look really cute. Sure, they may not be classy, but there’s no harm in purchasing some cheap jewelry, right?

Wrong. Cheap, low-quality jewelry can bring numerous bad things. You should never buy such jewelry and you should advise your friends and family from doing so. Seriously, it’s that bad. This sort of jewelry never brings anything good. In fact, it can lead to some serious consequences.

Potential Harm

Cheap, low-quality jewelry can bring numerous health consequences. It may seem harmless, but you should never play with your health. Keep in mind that you might want to save a few bucks but there is always a reason why any particular piece is that cheap.

One of the main reasons cheap jewelry is cheap is because it’s made of cheap materials. This is bad news, because you need your body jewelry to be made of body-friendly, safe materials. This is non-negotiable. Using harmful materials can have serious consequences for your health, so you should always strive for jewelry made of medical-grade, high-quality materials.

Keep in mind that any body jewelry piece actually goes inside your skin. It has to pass through the piercing itself, which includes sensitive tissue. If you use jewelry made of crappy material you are risking a serious infection. Bacteria and dirt can get into your body and that’s a recipe for trouble.

Even more, cheap materials can bring harm themselves. Many cheap materials typically contain dubious or dangerous ingredients that will get inside your body, causing trouble. Take nickel, for example. Cheap jewelry typically contains nickel. All those cheap gold jewelry pieces? Yes, full of nickel. Nickel is dangerous because it can cause a serious nickel allergy. This is more than just an aesthetic problem: it can be very dangerous.

Another problem of cheap jewelry is that it’s just not well-crafted. It means it can easily bend and break, hurting you in the process. You don’t want your jewelry to poke and pinch you, and you sure don’t want any scratches and other problems.

Design Mistakes

Another downside to cheap jewelry is…. Well, it’s cheap. As in, you can tell it’s low-quality. Even when it comes to design, it’s just not as good as better quality pieces. Jewelry you can buy at a mall is made using the cheapest possible materials, including cheap glue and low-quality beads. It is just not made to last.

Glue is a particular problem here. Almost everything on a cheap jewelry piece is glued. This is particularly true for gems and other decorations. Glue tends to dry up and doesn’t hold well. After a while, the beads and gems will simply fall out. It is very easy to lose parts of your jewelry this way.

Now, this can be very dangerous, especially in the case of tongue piercing and genital piercings. You might swallow a bead or other part of the jewelry. It can hurt your genitalia. You don’t want this to happen.

Even if cheap jewelry doesn’t harm you, it still breaks easily. It’s not made to last so it will probably bend and break after the first wear. This is just a waste of money. You wanted to save on jewelry but it will actually take more of your money in the long run because it’s just so poorly made that you will have to always buy new jewelry pieces.

High-Quality Jewelry

High-quality jewelry, on the other hand, is not just body-friendly but also durable. It makes a good investment. It is carefully crafted and made to last. You should always buy this type of jewelry. Forget about cheap jewelry pieces you can get at a mall. Not worth the risk.

There are numerous advantages to high-quality jewelry. The most important ones include:

  • Safety. High-quality body jewelry is made of safe materials. These materials will not harm your body so you don’t have to worry while wearing these jewelry pieces.
  • Durability. High-quality jewelry is made to last. It is durable and well-crafted, so you will enjoy it for a long time.
  • Beauty. High-quality jewelry is also more beautiful. Since it uses good materials and it’s well-crafted it also look much better. It will not break or bend easily so it will keep its great looks for a long time.

Cheap Body JewelryThe best of all? High-quality jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive. Sure, you will pay a bit more than for cheap jewelry but this is the point. You are paying for the quality. You are paying for your safety. You are paying for beautiful, durable jewelry you will enjoy for a long time.

At the same time, you don’t have to pay some crazy money for a quality jewelry piece. There are body-friendly, durable jewelry pieces you can get for a decent price. The Chain Gang strives to provide the best-quality body jewelry without high prices!

Also, keep in mind that high-quality jewelry is durable, it will save you money in the long run, because you won’t have to buy new pieces all the time. Do yourself a favor and forget about cheap, low-quality jewelry. It’s just not worth the risk.

Dermal Piercings

Dermal PiercingDermal piercings are those piercings performed on the flat surfaces of the body. They differ from surface piercings because they have only one hole seen on the skin. While a typical piercing has an entry hole and an exit hole, dermal piercings have just one hole that can be seen on the surface of the skin. This produces a very unique visual effect and allows for many creative placements for the jewelry.

About Dermal Piercings

Dermal piercings are gaining more and more popularity. These specialized piercing types are like no others. They have only one hole on the surface of the skin, and only one hole for the jewelry. The other end of the jewelry is neatly placed within the dermal layer of the skin. This is how this type of piercing got its name.

What makes dermal piercings particularly attractive is the visual image they create. A person wearing dermal jewelry has beads forming on top of the skin. The beads can be positioned in many different ways, so there’s enough room for experimentation with this piercing type.

Dermal Piercing Benefits

This unusual piercing type brings numerous benefits, especially compared to surface piercings. Dermal piercings can be positioned on almost any flat surface of the skin, even the ones that are hard to pierce.

Another advantage to dermal piercings is that they are longer lasting than surface piercings. Unlike surface piercings, which are only made through the surface of the skin, dermal piercings use jewelry that is anchored under the skin. It makes these piercings less prone to migration and rejection.

Finally, dermal piercings are great because they allow you to be creative. Typically, a person won’t get only one dermal piercing. Dermal piercings are done in pairs or groups. Depending on the placement, you can create numerous interesting patterns so it’s a great choice for those who wish to be creative.

Most Common Placements

Dermal piercings can be placed on almost any surface of the skin to achieve many different piercing options. However, the most popular placements include:

  • Around eyes (all areas)
  • On the ear
  • On the face (all areas)
  • On the fingers
  • On the neck
  • On the wrist
  • On the lower back

The Procedure

The procedure is not particularly complicated but you need to visit an experienced piercer. There are two common methods for performing dermal piercings: with a needle and with a dermal punch.

The needle method resembles any other piercing procedure. The main difference is that during the procedure, the piercer creates an L-shaped pouch on the skin instead of a simple hole. The pouch is made to hold the base and anchor of the piercing. The jewelry base is inserted carefully, typically using forceps. At the end, the jewelry top (a bead or another decoration) is fixed to the base.

The punch method is similar to the needle one, but the main difference is in the way the pouch is made. Here, the tissue is removed to make the pouch for the jewelry base. While this process is said to be less painful, it is also more prone to problems so it’s banned in many places.

Aftercare

Dermal Piercings require their own aftercare, though you will find it’s not so different than with the regular piercing. Keep in mind that a clean dressing is placed over the pierced area for the first several hours, and some people may even use bandages. It all helps with the healing process.

To take care of your dermal piercing, clean it with salt solution or a specialized cleaning product. The easiest way to go is to take a clean paper towel to pat the area around piercing. Use another towel to dry the area after cleaning.

Keep in mind that most dermal piercings take about 3 months to heal, so it’s important to keep this aftercare routine in order to prevent infections and other problems.

Jewelry

Typical jewelry type for dermal piercings is dermal anchor. Dermal anchors are specially designed for this piercing type and they are made in such a way to minimize the risk of migration and rejection.

Dermal anchors are placed under the skin. They typically have holes so the tissue can grow through them. It anchors the jewelry under the skin so it’s less likely to migrate or cause other problems. Of course, in order for this to work safely, a dermal anchor has to be made of a medical-grade material.

The base of the dermal anchor goes under the skin, while the top stays out of the skin. This is where the decoration (such as a bead, or a gem) is attached. This way, only the decoration is seen on the surface of the skin.

Dermal anchors typically use simple yet effective beads. Some beads have a gem on top while others are decorated in bright colors and interesting patterns. While the anchor stays under the skin, you can change the bead to give your dermal piercing a new look.

Male Genital Piercing Considerations

Surgical Steel Curved Barbells

Male genital piercing can be done in many different ways. It looks great both on flaccid and erect penis and the best of all, it feels so good during sex. While some guys love the way their genital jewelry looks and some even love the thrill of getting pierced, the number one advantage to getting this type of piercing is to increase sensitivity during sex.

Does it work? You bet!

The only thing you should pay attention to is to choose a reliable piercer. If done by knowledgeable staff, genital piercing will bring you and your partners lots of enjoyable moments.

What to Get?

The choice is yours, and it depends on what you like and what you want to achieve, visually and functionally. Basically every type of a male genital piercing can be used to increase arousal during sex and make additional stimulation for both you and your partners.

You will discover that you can use your jewelry to increase sensitivity and that there are many pleasurable ways to play with your jewelry during sex and masturbation. Piercing will make different spots on your penis and genitalia more sensitive and you can also experience new types of stimulation, such as urethral massage or internal stimulation of the glans.

Piercing also feels great for your partners and it can enhance your performance. There are women and men who just can’t resist a guy with a genital piercing and what it can do to make them super horny and aroused.

Female partners can enjoy the feeling of barbells rubbing against their vaginal walls. The curves and edges of your jewelry will provide pleasurable stimulation and massage their most sensitive spots, like G spot or vaginal opening. Depending on the position of your jewelry, you may also stimulate her clitoris curing sex.

Male partners will love your piercings during anal sex because a nice Prince Albert or apadravya jewelry can massage his prostate and provide additional stimulation. Think of it as a personal, life prostate stimulator. Your jewelry can also stimulate his scrotum or perineum and give you both extra arousal.

Different Sensations

Different piercings will give you and your partners different type of stimulation, so it’s one thing you should think about when deciding what part of genitalia to pierce. It all depends on what you and your partners like. There is always an issue of personal preferences; what one guy likes might not be good for another guy or his partners.

Generally speaking, though, each type of genital piercing provides certain sensations and targets certain spots for you and your partners.

Guys who enjoy urethral stimulation should go for the Prince Albert piercing. It is a great one for stimulating various spots at once. Plus, it works great for your female partners. The jewelry is perfectly positioned to massage her G spot during sex. Nothing feels better than having an intense G spot stimulation during wild sex, so you’ll definitely make her satisfied. If you have sex with men, PA and reverse PA are great for prostate stimulation during anal sex. Your jewelry will hit all the right spots and bring him intense orgasms.

If you want to experience totally new feeling, apadravya and ampallang are the way to go: they will make your penis sensitive in new ways. Apadravya (vertical glans piercing) is probably more comfortable for your female partner. Like PA, the jewelry can rub against her G spot, which is very stimulating. It is also one of the most arousing piercings for the wearer. It stimulates your sensitive spots internally and provides amazing feeling during sex.

The ampallang (horizontal glans piercing) may be too intense for some women because the barbells rub directly on her vaginal walls and stretch her more, but this can also be a great thing, especially for guys who wish to expand their girth. Another great advantage to this piercing is that it makes your head really hard, which makes the feeling for both you and your partners very intense.

The guiche is great for external prostate stimulation. Circular barbells look and feel great there. They will massage your perineum and press all the right spots. Depending on the size of the jewelry and pressure, this piercing can stimulate both your perineum and prostate.

There are many other types of genital piercings for men, but these some of the most popular ones when it comes to increasing sexual pleasure. As usual, you just need to be adventurous and use your imagination. Experiment with your partners and discover the best ways to use your genital piercing to enhance your sexual experiences.

Female Genital Piercing Considerations

There is something irresistible and sensual about a woman with genital piercing. The jewelry looks great and the best thing is that you can use it to intensify the experience during sex. It will rub against your skin, making you extra aroused and it will also provide additional stimulation for your lover.

Before choosing the best type of genital piercing for you and the jewelry you wish to use, it’s important to consider your anatomy. It often influences the way the piercing looks and feels. The good news is that there is something for everyone so it’s possible to find the best piecing that will suit you. A great piercing can help you a lot during sex and it can truly make your clit, labia and vulva more sensitive.

The Way it Looks

Don’t forget about the way your piercing will look. You want your lover to be amazed when they see it and you also want to look great for yourself. Nothing feels better than having your shiny hood or labia piercing exposed.

Simple rings are probably the most popular type of genital piercing jewelry. They look very effective despite their simple design. Barbells are another popular type. Personally, I love the look and feel of curved barbells. They look very classy and they feel so good when they rub against your skin.

It Makes You More Sensitive

Genital piercing is not for aesthetics only. It can be used to increase sensitivity and help you enjoy masturbation and sex more. Once the healing time has passed you will be able to experience different sensations. It’s truly worth it: your genital jewelry will add to the sensation, making you more aroused. It will also provide more arousal for both you and your partner.

Perhaps the best thing about intimate piercing is that the sensation often depends on the jewelry itself. I’ve found out that rings provide different types of pinching sensations that I love, while more complex jewelry can be used for massaging a wide area. It’s definitely something you can experiment with. I recommend having at least two or three types of jewelry for all your genital piercings. It will allow you to experience many different sensations.

One great and very functional piercing is the horizontal hood piercing. What I love about it is that it looks very beautiful and you can find gorgeous jewelry for it. It can help a lot when it comes to sensitivity. You can have your lover pinching your piercing or moving the tongue around the jewelry. I prefer simple rings because they are small and comfortable and they help a lot during sex. They are simply irreplaceable during oral sex.

How to Wear It

Here are some tips on how to wear your genital piercing with pride and to the maximum effect.

To receive maximum stimulation, make sure that the bead of the jewelry rests on the clitoris itself, not the hood. If your hood covers your clit the horizontal piercing will likely rest on the hood. It will feel ok, but not as great as direct clitoral stimulation. If you want to receive a more intense stimulation, choose vertical piercing. In this case, the bead of the jewelry will touch your clitoris, which gives you maximum stimulation. What I love about vertical piercing is that the jewelry presses against the tip of your clitoris and it gives you so much stimulation during sex.

For maximum stimulation, choose triangular piercing. This is the number one piercing for women who need intense massage to achieve arousal or those who like strong pressure on their clitoris. If you have any problems with your orgasms or if you like to apply strong pressure to your clit during masturbation and sex, this is the piercing for you.

Sensitivity issues mostly depend on the piercer and the after-care. Some women report decreased sensitivity after piercing, which generally should not be happening. We are all individual and what suits me might not be the right for you, but genital piercing should not make you less sensitive.

After the piercing, chances are that you’ll have to learn how to touch your body. Learning how to masturbate again and learning what you like is an exciting experience, especially if have your lover explore you and arouse you.

Hood piercings tend to increase sensitivity more than labia piercings. Labia piercings are largely decorative so don’t expect a sudden change in sensitivity. However, what I find great about labia piercings is that the jewelry will provide some extra weight and may even expose your clit a little, which can be very hot and arousing.

For extra adventurous ladies, I recommend the Princess Albertina piercing. It is great for urethral stimulation and it can be used for intense and deep sensations you can’t feel with any other piercing. Keep in mind this is an advanced piercing, though. It’s important to find a very experienced piercer. This is a great piercing for women who enjoy urethral stimulation.

Horns on The Sleepy CatsBODY MODIFICATION IMPLANTS

Anyone can get it done, and it’s changing the appearance of man and woman kind! It’s becoming more and more popular as we try to assert our individuality from one another! BODY MODIFICATION IMPLANTS ( In body modification, an implant is a device placed under the human skin for decorative purposes. Such implants may be subdermal or transdermal. In the context of body modification, some may consider injections of silicone and other substances a type of implant as well) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There are several types of implants the ones we are talking about today are SUB-DERMAL. Sub-Dermal Implants are objects placed in a pocket completely under the skin as a form of Body Art.

 

 

A friend's implants.The implant is a foreign object usually made from Teflon or Silicone. However in theory any biocompatible material can be used, such as steel, titanium, and alloys of the two. You could also use synthetic material such as teflon, silicone, and nylon. In some cases even coral has been used, although organic materials that can break down in the body are generally avoided.

As with the “horned” man pictured above these implants can be stretched slowly and over time. To do so you start with a normal implant and after it has healed you repeatedly reimplant slightly larger objects until desired size is reached. This can take time and must be done gradually to prevent severe scarring both internally and externally if the implant rips through the skin.

Subdermal implants are usually implanted using a pseudo-surgical technique, which basically consist of using a scalpel to make a single incision and then a dermal separator that slides under the skin like a small spatula to create a pocket for insertion of the implant. Once the object is implanted it only takes a few sutures to close it, or suture tape even. This procedure can be done by either a Body Modification Specialist or a Medical Professional, just make sure you only let someone work on you who has experience and is a professional!

While  Subdermal Implants is a basic procedure there are always risk associated in these situations!

Some risk of dermal implants include:
* Infection
* Tissue Resorption
* Implant Surface Contamination
* Implant Biocompatibility
* Nerve and Muscle Pressure
* Allergies
* Migration
* Implant Rejection
* Implant Subdermal Shifting

While most of these risk  are unusual and rarely happen, a few are common. Migration for instance is to be expected, however it can be minimized with proper care. By using a pressure bandage for a few days and not sleeping om the implant you can greatly reduce the risk of suffering major migration, but may still experience a slight migration. As far as healing goes it’s generally worry free, as long as you take care and maintain a healthy immune system  you just need to eat healthy and rest.

Personally this type of Body Modification has a very appealing side, it gives you the opportunity to change your appearance or accentuate certain parts of your body! While maybe not for everyone it is definitely becoming more mainstream!
