Stretching Your PA Piercing

PA PiercingThe Prince Albert piercing is the most popular male genital piercing in the world. Even though it seems complicated, it’s actually among the quickest and least invasive genital piercings you can get. Another good thing about this piecing is that it can easily be stretched to a larger gauge if this is what you want.

What Makes PA Piercing Simple?

The PA piercing is less invasive than other male genital piercing because there is actually only a small piece of skin to be pierced. The majority of the flesh used for this piercing already has a natural hole: the urethral canal.

This piercing uses the urethral opening on the top of the penis, then goes through the urethra and only the small portion underside the head of the penis should be pierced. The PA jewelry is inserted using these holes: the hole on the tip of the penis, then urethra and finally the artificial hole made using a piercing needle.

If you like and enjoy your PA piercing you might also like to know that it’s easily stretchable if you wish to wear a larger gauge jewelry.

How to Stretch Your PA

One important thing that needs to be said about the Prince Albert piercing is that it’s very easy to stretch it. This is not true for PA piercing only, but also for many other penis piercings. They are all easily stretchable.

The reason is the penis (glans) tissue, which can be stretched easily. That’s why men who enjoy this piercing usually don’t have any problems stretching it to a larger gauge.

In fact, PA is so easy to stretch that it’s among the most popular piercings for stretching, just after the earlobes. It’s not unusual for guys to wear massive jewelry of large sizes in their PA piercing. Even rings in the gauge 0 or 00 are not unusual to wear with this piercing.

PA is so easy to stretch that, while you need to be careful just like with any other stretching job, you don’t have to go from size to size. You may be able to skip several sizes, though it depends on the tissue and individual anatomy.

One important thing before stretching is to wait for your Prince Albert piercing to be fully healed. This is important. Your piercing has to be healed, clean and in a great condition in order to stretch it to a larger gauge. You should wait at least several months (6 months preferably) until you attempt stretching.

Generally speaking, the stretching is done quickly and without a problem, using one of the many stretching devices available for body piercing enthusiasts. When stretching your PA, it’s important to use a curved device to accommodate your piercing. Chances are that you will be able to skip some gauges without a problem, but you should never force jewelry in.

Additional Advice

  • Large jewelry will stretch your piercing even further.
  • There is no danger to wearing heavy, large jewelry in this piercing. However, big rings and other PA jewelry pieces may be uncomfortable for your partner during oral sex.
  • Many men report increased sexual pleasure when wearing bigger jewelry. Big jewelry is also very enjoyable for the man’s partner during sex.
  • Stretched PA is generally easy to shrink. Penis tissue shrinks pretty quickly, so chances are that you will be able to shrink your piercing to a smaller gauge if you like, or to retire it altogether (provided that you didn’t stretch your PA piercing to a really large gauge).

Prince Albert and Reverse Prince Albert

Prince Albert PiercingThe Prince Albert (PA) piercing is the most popular male genital piercing in the world. Many men enjoy the look – and feel – of a penis that’s pierced in this way. It can bring sexual pleasure to the man, and many people claim that the look of a penis with PA is very striking and sexually stimulating.

Another popular male genital piercing with a similar name is the Reverse PA. While they tend to look pretty similar, these are actually different types of piercings.

Regular PA Piercing

While it may seem complex at the first glance, the ordinary PA piercing is surprisingly easy to perform. The piercing itself goes from the urethral opening on the tip of the penis to the underside of the penis. It means it largely uses the existing space – urethra, so there’s no much flesh to pierce at all. For the most part, the piercing goes through the urethra, so the only part of the penis that is actually pierced is the thin tissue on the underside of the glans. It’s one of the reasons why this is the most popular male genital piercing.

Both circumcised and uncircumcised men can get a PA piercing. Uncircumcised men will have the piercing done a bit off-center so the frenulum and the surrounding tissue is not damaged. Other than that, one’s circumcision status doesn’t dictate PA, so most men can get this piercing without a problem.

Since there’s so little tissue to actually pierce, the procedure is not as painful as some think it might be. Men who are not used to urethral stimulation often report that this part of the procedure is the most unusual one, because special receiving tube has to be inserted into urethra before the piercing is done. None of this is painful, and men who enjoy urethral stimulation don’t have any problems with it.

It takes about 2-4 months for PA to fully heal. During this time, it’s important to perform adequate aftercare and to be careful with any sexual activity you might want to engage in.

Since PA is a popular piercing type, there is a lot of elegant and suitable jewelry you can find to go with it. Most commonly, people wear curved and circular barbells, captive bead rings and segment rings.

Reverse PA

Reverse PAThe Reverse PA is another popular type of male genital piercing, even though it’s very different than the regular PA.

In this piercing, the jewelry goes through the urethra and exits in the hole pierced in the top of the glans. Because there’s more tissue on the upper side of the penis, the procedure is a bit more complex and more painful. However, it’s done quickly enough so usually it doesn’t pose much of the problem.

The main difference between PA and Reverse PA is the placement of the hole. In regular PA, the hole is made on the underside of the penis, while in Reverse PA, the hole goes through the top of the penis.

This difference is not just aesthetical, but also functional. There is more tissue on the top side of the penis head, so Reverse PA goes through more tissue.

The Apadravya piercing (vertical penis piercing) can be seen as a combination of PA and Reverse PA, because the hole goes through the whole penis, from the bottom, through the urethra and on the top.

Additional Information

  • PA piercings tend to bleed when they are fresh. This is normal. Many men are not prepared for this, so it becomes a source of discomfort. You should not worry if you notice some blood. However, if the blood persist, you should consult your doctor.
  • While PA piercings (or other genital piercings) sometimes make men to sit down to urinate, it doesn’t always happen. Many men can control the stream while standing, so if you really hate the idea of urinating while sitting down, there’s a chance that you won’t be forced to do it. It will probably take some patience to learn how to control the stream while standing.
  • Penis heals quickly, so you should always have the jewelry in place, unless you are ready to retire your piercing. Most men can have sex without the jewelry, even though most prefer to leave it in. In case you want to take your jewelry off during sex, make sure to get it right back after sex, because the piercing will start to heal (close).
  • Most PA piercings are done at 10 or 8 gauge. Many men prefer to stretch their PA to 6g or 4g, or even larger. In case you want to do it, make sure to go slowly. Also, never accept to be pierced with anything smaller than 10g. Jewelry that is too thin can lead to the “cheese cutter effect” you sure want to avoid!

Cherry Bomb

 

Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bombs are very similar to a Screwball Ring in that the ball is threaded onto the ring, except that Cherry Bombs usually have a Large Ball with a very small diameter ring. They are all custom made and on our version we allow you to choose the ball size that you would like. There is a slight gap between the ball and the other end of the ring, which is rounded and highly polished.

The recommended ball size depends on several factors. The Weight that you want, the Gauge of the ring, and the Diameter of the ring.

However as a rule of thumb;
8 gauge – should use a ball – 3/8″ to 3/4″
6 gauge – should use a ball – 1/2″ to 3/4″
4 gauge – should use a ball – 1/2″ to 3/4″
2 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
0 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
00 gauge – should use a ball – 5/8″ to 3/4″
7/16″ gauge – should use a ball – 3/4
