Enjoying the Apadravya Piercing

ApadravyaThe Apadravya is one of the most famous male genital piercings. Known as “vertical penis piercing”, Apadravya intrigues many people who are interested in this type of body modification. It’s important to note that while Apadravya is not a rare piercing (in fact, it’s one of the more common penis piercings), there are many people who still don’t know enough about it.

About Apadravya Piercing

The Apadravya piercing is a vertical glans piercing. It means that the piercing hole and jewelry pass vertically through the penis glans. The jewelry enters on the top of the penis glans and it exits on the underside of the penis.

This piercing is almost always placed centrally, and it passes through the urethra. Since the urethra is a natural opening on itself, the Apadravya doesn’t create a new hole through the whole glans – there is a natural hole inside the glans (the urethra). It makes the procedure a bit less complicated and less painful than it would be without the needle going through the urethra.

The exact placement will depend on the man’s individual anatomy and preferences. Most people prefer for Apadravya to be done on a slightly forward angle to the hips and not completely vertically. This makes penetration easier and sex more comfortable for the wearer’s partner.

Keep in mind that the Apadravya piercing technically consists of two separate piercings: Prince Albert and Reverse Prince Albert. The down portion of the Apadravya (from the urethra to the hole on the underside of the penis) is the Prince Albert piercing. The upper portion of the Apadravya (from the urethra to the hole on the top of the penis head) is the Reverse Prince Albert piercing. It means that if you already have a Prince Albert piercing, you can convert it to Apadravya relatively easily. If you have a Reverse Prince Albert, the process is even easier, since Prince Albert is a simpler piercing than the Reverse Prince Albert.

Sex with Apadravya

The Apadravya piercing is considered one of the most sexually pleasurable piercings, especially for the wearer’s partners. It’s one of the reasons why so many men decide to try this piercing. While there are no guarantees for heightened sexual pleasure, and while you should expect to go through certain adjustments, many men with Apadravya piercing report improved sexual satisfaction and more exciting experiences.

This is why Apadravya is considered a functional piercing: it’s not just aesthetically pleasing. It will also make sex more pleasurable for you and your partners.

This is particularly true for female sexual partners. Many women who have sex with men with Apadravya piercing claim that the jewelry rubs against their G spot, which is very pleasurable. Another benefit is that it makes the tip of the penis harder and the whole sexual experience more exciting.

In addition to this, some men choose to wear special vibrating jewelry during sex, which also contributes to overall satisfaction.

Also, some people claim that they simply find the look of a penis with Apadravya sexually stimulating. Performing oral sex on a man with Apadravya can be a very stimulating experience, because the jewelry allows for new sensation.

Many men with Apadravya piercing and their partners report increased sexual satisfaction in all areas of intimate life and all types of sexual activities. However, in order to reach this stage it’s important to follow a few simple rules:

  • Find an experienced piercer. Genital piercings are specific, so you need someone who is familiar with the Apadravya procedure. The piercing has to be done professionally, with a proper placement of the piercing and jewelry. This is the first step to ensure the enjoyment.
  • Follow the aftercare instructions carefully. It’s your penis and you want it to be clean. You have to prevent any possible infections so this is why you should be very careful during the healing time. It includes abstaining from all forms of sexual activities (even masturbating) during the initial healing period. After this period, you can resume sexual activities but with caution. Wearing condom during the healing time is highly recommended.
  • Get to know your body all over again. Chances are that the Apadravya piercing will change the sensations in some ways and that it will make you learn what feels right and how to satisfy yourself. Appreciate and enjoy this learning process. Learn what feels right and how to satisfy yourself and your partner. Remember: before you start enjoying sex even more than before, you will need to adjust to the changes and find the best way to enjoy sex all over again.

Additional Info & Tips

  • It’s important to note that it’s possible to perform an off-set Apadravya piercing, for various reasons. The piercing and jewelry don’t have to be made centrally. However, even these piercings will typically pass through the urethra.
  • Just like most of the other penis piercings, the Apadravya is relatively easy to stretch. You need to wait until the piercing is fully healed to start stretching, though.
  • As with most of the other genital piercings, the Apadravya may affect your sexual partner. If you want to have penetrative sex, it’s important to think about your partner and their feelings and enjoyment. While Apadravya is said to improve sexual pleasure, particularly for the female partners, your partner might want you to remove your jewelry during sex.
  • If you choose to remove jewelry during sex, make sure to put it back as soon as possible. Penis tissue tends to heal quickly and you don’t want to leave your Apadravya without jewelry for too long.
  • The most common jewelry type used for Apadravya piercings is the straight barbell. When choosing a barbell, make sure it’s long enough to accommodate erection (and, if it’s the first jewelry for a new piercing, it has to accommodate initial swelling). You will probably need to get a shorter barbell once the swelling is gone. It’s important that the barbell is long enough to accommodate for erection, but short enough not to pose a problem during sex.
  • The Apadravya piercing takes months to heal, but you will probably be ready to have sex (with a condom) after about a month.

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!

Frenum Piercing

English: Erect penis with frenum piercing (bar... There are a variety of different male piercings that can be done such as the Prince Albert, Reverse Prince Albert, the Dydo, the Apdravia, the list goes on, but one of the easiest and most common male piercings is the Frenum Piercing. The Frenum Piercing is a piercing that is done on the underside of the shaft of the penis. This type of body modification is said to enhance sexual organisms for both parties involved. I can tell you that from my experience it most assuredly does. :-)

Where the head of the penis and the shaft of the penis come together on the bottom is usually where a Frenum Piercing is done. The piercing is done by pinching the loose skin in that area and marking the entrance and exit holes. After the holes have been marked forceps are applied and then (usually) a 12 gauge needle is used for the actual initial piercing. A barbell is then inserted. Most people use straight barbells but captive bead rings are suitable as well, but you have to be careful that they do not snag on clothing. Everyone’s body is very different, healing time included.

The penis is a very vascular organ and usually heals quite quickly. If the piercing was pierced correctly, kept clean and depending on the individual person the heal time can be anywhere from 5 weeks to 6 months. Because the penis is so vascular, the healing process is quick, and rejection rarely occurs. However, migration with this piercing is very likely.

Having sex before the frenum piercing is completely healed can also encourage migration, which is where the jewelry is actually just pushed out by your body.  Sex after this piercing should wait until the piercing is completely healed. Having sex before the piercing is healed can result in the piercing getting infected, or tearing. To help prevent infection after the piercing is healed, a condom should be worn, among other reasons to wear a condom during sex.

Although the frenum piercing is generally done closer to the head of the penis, many men enjoy getting multiple barbells or rings put in on the underside of the shaft of the penis. Another name for multiple piercings on the underside of the penis is called frenum ladder or Jacob’s ladder. Personally i think this is one of the coolest piercings that there is below the waist. Once it is healed it will give sensations to both partners that you can not get anywhere else.

A frenum ladder can go from the head of the penis all the way to the back side of the scrotum.  Some women find that the frenum piercing enhances their orgasm. But for the women who find it to be uncomfortable, the men have the option of removing the piercing and putting it back in afterwards. Usually it is just a matter of adjusting the size of the barbells to suit your partner.

Many will continue and once the ladder is complete as full as it can be with “rungs” then you can start to go down your sack with rings in the same manner. However if you do decide to do this you will not be able to wear ball weights such as our Donut Ball Weights which are incredibly popular because of the increase in sexuality that they offer. Especially as you get older it is nice to get your boys back down where they belong. Even though they are about The Worlds Most Comfortable Ball Stretchers that you will ever find, you simply can not wear steel rings in your sack piercings and have it be comfortable.
