Genital Piercings Made to Stimulate Erogenous Zones

coupleThere are many people who are fans of piercings but do not like genital piercings. On the other hand, there are many people who adore these types of intimate piercings.

One might wonder why someone might want to get a genital piercing, especially since these piercings are known to be painful.

While it’s true genital piercings are among the most extreme and painful piercing types, there is usually a great payoff: many of the genital piercings enhance sexual pleasure. This is a great reason to get a genital piercing: increasing arousal for both you and your partner is a great thing.

In other words, genital piercings are largely functional piercings, that is, they have a purpose beyond aesthetic function. However, this is not the only reason why someone might get a genital piercing. Some genital piercings do look good, so aesthetic is one of the main reasons to try one of these piercings.

Aesthetic or Pleasure?

You may wonder how to tell a difference between a purely aesthetic genital piercing and the one that brings pleasure. This may be an important factor when deciding which type of piercing to get. While there are not straight and universal answers that will suit everyone, it’s important to know which piercings are known to bring pleasure – and in what way.

Keep in mind: different genital piercings are made to stimulate different erogenous zones. Some will benefit the wearer’s partner only, while the others are made to increase pleasure for both partners.

Piercings and Erogenous Zones

Here are some common genital piercings and erogenous zones they are made to stimulate:

  • Penis head stimulation: Prince Albert, Reverse Prince Albert, Apadravya and Ampallang. All of these male genital piercings are great for glans stimulation and can increase pleasure for the wearer.
  • G-spot stimulation: Apadravya is the best piercing for this purpose. Other good piercings that can be used for G-spot stimulation are Prince Albert (PA) and Reverse Prince Albert. Ampallang can be pleasurable in some cases but it’s known to be too intense during vaginal stimulation.
  • Prostate stimulation (P-spot stimulation): Ampallang is known to be a great piercing for anal stimulation. It can also be used for prostate stimulation. Another good piercing for prostate stimulation is regular PA (reverse PA may also work but it may prove to be too intense for some users).
  • Clitoral Stimulation: Vertical Clitoral Hood Piercing (VCH), Triangle piercing. These two are known to enhance the pleasure for a woman. Horizontal Clitoral Hood Piercing (HCH), on the other hand, is more aesthetic than practical. True Clitoral Piercing may also enhance pleasure for some women but it’s often known as too intense for most people.
  • Added stimulation during intercourse: Some genital piercings can provide added stimulation during intercourse, even if they are not fully effective at enhancing pleasure on their own. For example, inner labia piercings can increase pleasure during initial stages of penetration for both men and women.

Apadydoe Piercing

ApadydoeApadydoe is a very advanced male genital piercing, and it’s very rare.

This piecing is a combination of an Apadravya and Dydoe piercings.

It is a complex piercing, typically done in pairs and it’s not for the faint of heart.

The Piercing

Apadydoe is a very striking piercing, so it sure makes for a very attractive sight. It is an advanced piercing, so it’s reserved for those who truly want to go one step further. Apadydoe is a combination of an Apadravya and Dydoe piercings connected with a single jewelry piece, typically a ring.

This piercing was first promoted by Erik Dakota in Fakir Musafar’s Body Play magazine. To this day, it remains very rare, but there are men who are intrigued by it and interested in getting one. If you wish to get this piercing it’s vital to do your research and find an absolutely experienced piercer. This is an advanced piercing so it has to be done carefully.

Needless to say, it’s also considered one of the most painful male genital piercings and penis piercings out there, but this should not stop those truly interested in Apadydoe to get one.

A typical jewelry for an Apadydoe piercing is a ring. Most commonly, Captive Bead Rings are used, but it’s possible to use some other type of the ring.

Two Piercings in One

Technically, Apadydoe is two piercings in one: Apadravya and a Dydoe. Many experts recommend treating it as such, that is, to get an Apadravya and a Dydoe first, and to connect them with jewelry later. This approach has its advantage. Since both Apadravya and Dydoe are serious piercings on their own, it’s wise to let them heal them first than to perform Apadydoe all in one go.

By treating this piercing as two you are also minimizing the risk of complications. Some experts recommend to get one piercing first (for example, an Apadravya), let that one heal and then get the other (Dydoe). Once the second one is healed, you can proceed to get them connected in an Apadydoe. This approach minimizes the pain and risk for infections because it’s always easier to perform one piercing at a time and to do aftercare on it before moving to the next one.

There is another advantage to this approach: by letting both Apadravya and Dydoe heal, you are ensuring a perfect fit for your Apadydoe. Only once your piercings are healed you can see how big the jewelry should really be. This is the best way to get the ring of the appropriate size that suits your anatomy perfectly. It also eliminates the need to change jewelry soon after the swelling is gone.

However, there is a disadvantage to this approach, especially if you’ve done your Apadravya and Dydoe before thinking of connecting them in an Apadydoe. For the best results and the most comfortable placement, your Apadravya and Dydoe have to be made in a certain way. Namely, the Apadravya has to be crooked and off-center so it can nicely connect to the Dydoe with a single jewelry piece. Also, Dydoe should also be off-center. Also, it’s best for both piercings to be done with a curved rather than a straight needle in order to accommodate round jewelry.

Additional Tips and Info

  • This piercing is so rare there are almost no photos of it to be fund, save for the specialized magazines.
  • Since two piercings (Apadravya and Dydoe) are connected with a ring that goes all around the penis, Apadydoe can be considered an orbital piercing.
  • Apadydoe piercings are typically done in pairs. It means you will get one ring on the right side of your penis and the other on the left. It also means you will need to get two off-center Apadravyas (one on the each side) and two Dydoes.
  • Apadydoe, just like Dydo  e, is said to provide stimulating effect to both partners during sex.
  • One of the reasons why Apadydoes are so rare is that Dydoe piercings are prone to migration and rejection, especially when faced with added pressure from the jewelry connected to another piercing. To minimize this problem, it’s advisable to wear your Apadydoe only temporarily and to let the piercings rest for a while by wearing separate jewelry in your Apadravya and Dydoe.

Functional Piercings

Functional PiercingsYou’ve probably heard of the so-called “functional piercings”, but you may be unsure what this term means. As the name implies, functional piercings are those that can serve a specific piratical function for the wearer. In other words, those are piercings that are not purely decorative and whose purpose is not only aesthetic.

One can say that all piercings can serve a purpose other than pure aesthetics: they are great for expressing the wearer’s individuality and style. Some piercings and jewelry types can also be used to signify belonging to specific groups or supporting specific causes.

However, for a piercing to be considered truly functional, it has to have an immediate practical purpose. The best example of these functional piercings are genital piercings: these piercings serve an important purpose for the wearer – they are made to enhance sexual pleasure.

Genital Piercings and Pleasure

While not all genital piercings are also functional piercings, it’s important to note that many are. In fact, genital piercings are so great precisely because they can be both aesthetic and functional. Many times, the placement for a genital piercing is chosen based on the intended goal – enhancing sexual pleasure for the wearer or the wearer’s partner.

There are many erogenous zones men and women have, and many times, placing a piercing and jewelry on these erogenous zones make the pleasure stronger. These piercings are made to hit these precise spots and enhance the pleasure.

This pleasure enhancement can happen during all stages and types of sexual activity, from masturbation to intercourse. Some piercings and jewelry types are specially designed to stimulate the wearer’s partner during intercourse.

Opinions vary when it comes to the end result. Some people claim the pleasure enhancement is not that high while others say piercings are the only thing that can make them reach orgasm. This is particularly true for women who are otherwise unable to reach an orgasm. These women find very enjoyable to have a piercing done on the clitoral hood (Vertical Clitoral Hood piercing) since the jewelry is positioned in such a way to stimulate the clitoris. Of course, this is only one example of a functional piercing.

Functional genital piercings can also be used to enhance the pleasure for the wearer’s partner. For example, Apadravya piercing is a popular male genital piercing that is said to be very stimulating for women during vaginal intercourse. Similarly, many claim that Ampallang piercing is stimulating for the receiving partner during anal sex.

Another way to use functional piercings is for weights. Piercings can be enhanced by adding some weight to them to enhance the experience. There are specially designed weights you can use for this purpose. It’s another great way to make your experience more stimulating and use your piercings for sexual pleasure.

Popularity of Genital Piercings

54tGenital piercings are often perceived as extreme and unusual piercings. For some people, the idea of having a pierced genitalia is “too much” on itself.

There are even some piercing enthusiasts who’d gladly pierce their eyebrow, tongue or even a nipple but will never consider a genital piercings.

While piercings are a personal decision that should always depend on individual tastes, it’s important to know that genital piercings are not as rare as some people think. In fact, they are very popular among piercing enthusiasts. While they are not as common as, say, navel piercings or ear piercings, they are more popular than people think.

In other words, if you are intrigued by genital piercings, go for them! You are certainly not alone in your preferences.

How Common are Genital Piercings?

There is no clear statistics on genital piercings, or piercings in general, so it’s difficult to estimate the numbers. However, anecdotal evidence and popular demand show that genital piercings are far from being rare. While they may be rare in overall population, they are popular among piercing enthusiasts.

Some sources indicate that female genital piercings are more popular than male genital piercings. At the same time, Prince Albert piercing seems to be the most popular genital piercing in the world. It’s clear that both men and women enjoy this type of piercing so if you wish to get an intimate piercing you need to know you’re not alone!

Trained Piercers

A good thing about popularity of genital piercings is that there are trained, experienced professionals who can perform them properly. With any type of a piercing, it’s vital to find a reliable studio and an experienced professional to perform the piercing. This is the only way to stay safe and have a problem-free piercing.

When choosing a piercer it’s important to find an experienced person. An experienced piercer is the one who’s not only knowledgeable about piercings in general but also in the type of piercing you’re interested in.

This is even more important when it comes to genital piercings and other sensitive piercings. Since genital piercings are more demanding and somewhat rarer than common piercings such as ear or navel piercings, it’s vital to find a piercer who is truly knowledgeable about the piercing you’re interested in.

Luckily, there are piercers specialized in genital piercings. There are also general piercers experienced with genital piercings. In other words, it’s not impossible to find a good piercer for your genital piercing. It is yet another proof of how popular genital piercings are. Again, they are not the most popular piercings in the world but they are more common than people think.

Most Popular Genital Piercings

The most popular genital piercings are:

For men:

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!

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.
