Frenum Ladder

Frenum LadderFrenum Ladder is a male genital piercing consisting of multiple frenum piercings along the penis shaft. It is not uncommon for men to have their whole underside of the penis covered in piercings.

As such, Frenum Ladder is not a separate piercing type, but many piercings made at a specific location. While each of the individual frenum piercings is a piercing for itself, typically with its own jewelry, all of them are considered a part of the Frenum Ladder they belong to.

Frenum Ladder is also known as Jacob’s Ladder, so you may find information about this piercing under this name.

Building a Frenum Ladder

Frenum Ladder consists of individual frenum piercings parallel to each other. Typically, frenum piercings go all the way down the shaft of the penis on the underside. Since these are basically multiple frenum piercings the procedure is the same as for any individual frenum piercing.

Typically, the highest possible placement for a frenum piercing is at the point where the penis head meets shaft. The lowest possible placement is on the bottom of the shaft (lorum piercing). These are typical placements for frenum piercings and those piercings, when positioned parallel to each other, make a Frenum Ladder.

That being said, it is possible to have piercings located on other points on the shaft, in which case the ladder may have a different shape or orientation. These placements are, however, rarer than a typical Frenum Ladder.

It is possible to build a Frenum Ladder one by one (by performing frenum piercings individually) or by doing multiple frenum piercings at once. It is uncomfortable to get so many piercings at once, so men are advised to build their Frenum Ladder over a time. Since frenum piercings are relatively easy to perform and very quick to heal, it doesn’t take so much time to build a Frenum Ladder.

However, you need to be careful and gentle with your multiple piercings. Performing adequate aftercare is a must. You also need to make sure not to hurt your new piercings on clothes or during sexual activities.

Typical jewelry for Frenum Ladder is the same as individual frenum piercings: straight barbells, circular barbells and Captive Bead Rings. For a Frenum Ladder, however, it’s best if all individual piercings in the row have the same type of jewelry.

Additional Info and Tips

Frenum piercings are typically quick to heal. They heal in about 2 to 6 weeks. However, it is important to take a good care of them to prevent problems such as infection, migration and rejection.

That being said, rejection is relatively rare for frenum piercings, but they do have a significant risk for migrating. You need to be aware of this is you wish to build a Frenum Ladder since migrated piercings may disturb the ladder or affect other piercings in the ladder.

Many men choose to expand their Frenum Ladder even further to include lorum piercings (at the base of the penis, where it meets scrotum) and hafada piercings (on the scrotum). This way, the ladder goes all the way from the top of the penis down to the bottom of the scrotum.

Some men don’t stop there and include guiche piercings (on the perineum). For these people, the ladder goes from the top of the penis all the way down to the anus (or near anus).

Keep in mind that some of the frenum piercings may be surface piercings (depending on the placement). This can affect their longevity. That is another thing to keep in mind if you wish to build a Frenum Ladder.

Frenum piercings tend to close quickly when jewelry is removed. This is something to keep in mind if you wish to have a Frenum Ladder.

Ampallang vs Apadravya

Ampallang vs ApadravyaAmpallang and Apadravya are among the most popular male genital piercings. While they are not so common and popular like Prince Albert (PA) piercing they are certainly among the most famous penis piercings in the world. They are also functional piercings, which mean they can be used to enhance pleasure for the wearer and his partner during sex. It is therefore not surprising that there are so many men interested in this piercing type.

There are many similarities between these two piercing types, but also some notable differences. This article presents them both and highlights the main features of the each piercing to help you decide which one is the best for you. At the same time, keep in mind that you don’t have to decide: it is perfectly possible to have both on your penis if this is what you like! It is also possible to have them in addition to other genital piercings.

Similarities

In many ways, these two piercings are very similar. They are both done on the penis head, and they go all the way through. It means that the piercing starts at one side of the penis and exits through the other side.

Both Ampallang and Apadravya are done at similar gauges. Typically, the initial piercing is done at 12-10 gauge, which is the smallest safe gauge for penis piercings. Anything smaller than that is dangerous. That being said, penis piercings can be stretched relatively easily so many people choose to stretch their Ampallang and Apadravya to a larger gauge.

Another similarity between the two is jewelry used. Both of these piercings typically use straight barbells as jewelry. Depending on the design, the barbells can have larger or smaller balls, but it often depends on the preference and can affect the sensations the receiving partner has during sex.

The healing time for both piercings is the same (around 6 months or more), so it is important to be careful during the healing time. It is best to avoid intercourse or other form of sexual activities in the first weeks after getting your piercing done, and to use condoms until the piercing is fully healed.

Both Ampallang and Apadravya are functional piercings and can be used to enhance pleasure for the wearer and his partner. The exact effect will depend on preferences and the jewelry used, but many people find the pain needed to get this piercing worth the benefits.

Differences

While there are many similarities between these two piercings there are also notable differences. The main one is the placement: while Apadravya goes vertically through the penis head, Ampallang goes horizontally though it. In fact, this is how these two piercings are defined: Apadravya is a vertical penis head piercing and Ampallang is the horizontal one.

That being said, keep in mind that it is possible to get these piercings outside of the penis head. Some people choose to pierce their penis shaft horizontally or vertically. If you choose these piercings, however, keep in mind that they do not offer the same benefits as piercings done on the penis head when it comes to the wearer’s pleasure (but may be used to pleasure the partner).

Another important difference to keep in mind is that Ampallang is often done above the urethra and doesn’t go through it. Apadravya, on the other hand, goes through the urethral canal. Of course, some alternate placements are possible and a lot will depend on your anatomy, but these are considered typical placements.

The placements of Ampallang and Apadravya have certain consequences you need to think about. For example, the fact that Ampallang doesn’t always go through urethra means that you probably won’t have any problems during urination and that you will not have to learn how to hold your penis differently during urination. It also means that you will not have to sit while urinating, which is not always true for Apadravya. Since Apadravya goes through urethra it can affect the flow of urine and cause drippings. Some men find that they have to sit while urinating but many men are able to urinate while standing up. However, chances are that you will need to learn how to hold your penis to prevent leakage after you get your Apadravya.

At the same time, keep in mind that many Ampallangs do go through urethra, which means that you can expect some leakage during urination and you will have to re-learn how to urinate while standing up.

Also, the same can be said for ejaculation: if a piercing goes through the urethra it will affect the flow of sperm. Depending on the jewelry size the leakage can be prevented, but it’s not always possible.

Another difference to take into account is the pain. It is not surprising to learn that penis piercings are painful, and Ampallang and Apadravya are among the more painful ones. Out of the two, most men agree that Ampallang tends to be more painful of the two since the needle has to go through more tissue. In the case of Apadravya, there is less to go through and there is a small but significant pain-free moment when the needle goes through urethra. Of course, if you get an Ampallang that goes through urethra you can expect the same pain-free moment but the needle will have to go through more tissue than the one for Apadravya.

Yet another reason for Apadravya being a bit less painful one: many people get it in two sessions. The first step is to get a PA piercing and the next step is to get a reverse PA. These two piercings combined make Apadravya. If you choose to go this way you’ll be getting two shorter piercings instead of one long piercing, which is less painful.

While both Ampallang and Apadravya are functional piercing and can enhance the pleasure they do not always do that in the same way. Some types of sexual activities are better done with one than the other. If you wish to get one of these penis piercings to improve your sex life it is important to know what to expect.

Ampallang vs. Apadravya: Enhancing Your Sex Life

Both Ampallang and Apadravya can help you enhance pleasure during sex, masturbation and other types of sexual activities. However, keep in mind that the effect is individual so what works for one person might not work for the other. Also, it is absolutely crucial to wait with sex after getting your piercing done because you don’t want to hurt your piercing in healing. Once erection and sexual activities become comfortable you can proceed to have sex but it’s important to use condom until the piercing is fully healed.

These are the basic guidelines when it comes to penis piercings. What about the specific sexual benefits? Keep in mind that what’s good for the wearer may not be good for his partner. Men who have Ampallang or Apadravya piercings (or both) generally say that the piercing makes the penis more sensitive and that the jewelry can be used to massage the penis from the inside. This can be particularly pleasurable if the jewelry goes through urethra.

Sexual benefits for the receiving partner are mainly related to the added texture and friction caused by the jewelry on a pierced penis. It is like having a vibrator with special pearls and other features made for additional stimulation.

Both piercings also bring some special benefits. Namely, Ampallang makes the penis head wider, which makes the vagina or anus of the receiving partner to stretch more during sex. This can be very pleasurable. However, some people claim that Ampallang is “too much” when it comes to stretching, so if this is the case for you it might be for the best to try jewelry with smaller balls. Also, some people claim that Ampallang is not so great for vaginal sex but that it can make anal sex much more exciting. In other words, Ampallang may be the best functional piercing for anal sex.

Apadravya, on the other hand, is great for vaginal sex because it can stimulate the woman’s G-spot. Think of a G-spot vibrator with a pointed tip made to massage the G-spot. This is why so many women prefer Apadravya piercing for vaginal sex.

However, these are only guidelines and the exact benefits and sensations experienced will depend on people involved as well as jewelry used during intercourse. That being said, both Apadravya and Ampallang can be used for pleasure and for enhancing your sex life, so they are great functional piercings.

Personal Area Piercings are for Pleasure

English: From top to bottom: a horizontal clit...Body Piercing is done on just about every part of your body. It’s not just the navel, or nose anymore. Genital Piercing has become much more popular then you may realize. I know some people will find this hard to believe. A  Pun intended 🙂 however it is a fact.

The first response of many people is “why would anyone want to do that to themselves?” The answer usually is quiet simply “for the pleasure”.

The pain associated with the different genital piercings is not as bad as you may think. The reason for this is that you are piercing through nerves that are used to sensing pleasure, and are not as receptive to pain. The major reason for most of the genital piercings done is for pleasure, so a lot of pain would defeat the whole purpose. In fact if you are looking for pain, genital piercing is not the right place to look.

Of course there are risks with these piercings just as there are with any piercing, and just about everything else that we do in life. Some of the risks are serious on a couple of the piercings, such as the Ampallang. If that one is done incorrectly you can be rendered impotent very easily. However something else to think about is that Infection is the number one side effect of a piercing and something that can cause many very serious problems due to complications. Due to the increased blood flow the genital piercings usually heal faster then other piercings. For instance, a Prince Albert Piercing can heal in 4 to 6 weeks, however a navel piercing may take up to 1 year to heal. That leaves a much larger window of time to have something go wrong, or to catch a disease that you would rather not have.

The most common cause of a “piercing gone wrong” is carelessness, ignorance, and utter disregard for another persons well being. Take the time to make sure that you know your Piercer, and that he or she is a true “Professional” in every sense of the word.

Unfortunately many studios are still operating without any autoclave and thus can not sterilize anything. Many “piercers” are not trained or licensed at all. There is not a lot of watchdog or enforcement yet in our industry the way that there is in the standard medical industry. And really even the medical profession could be better policed as well. So make sure that you watch your but for yourself, or your but may be all that you have left down there. 🙂

Some of the male genital piercings are; Prince Albert ( being the most common ), Reverse Price Albert, Frenum, Dydoe, Guiche, and the Ampallang ( which is the most dangerous ).

In women, the genital piercings include; Vertical Clitoral Hood ( the most popular for females), Horizontal Clitoral Hood, Inner Labia, Outer Labia, and Triangle piercing to name a few. There are several more for both but these are some of the more common ones.

They make some very interesting pieces of jewelry for genital piercings, such as a Double Captive Curved Barbell for a Prince Albert Piercing, or a Double Bezel Set Flower for a Vertical Clitoris Piercing, so if you are looking to dress up the family Jewels or jewelry box make sure you go to a Reputable Experienced Professional Piercer. These piercings can make a big difference in you life, but it is up to you as to whether it is for the better or for the worse.
