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.
