Penis Plugs as Birth Control: A Very Bad Idea

Penis Plugs Should Not be Used as Birth ControlPenis plugs are popular urethral toys made for experiencing sexual pleasure. Typically shorter than urethral sounds, they are ideal for regular – as the opposite of deep – urethral stimulation. There are many different types of penis plugs you can use to experience new type of pleasure.

Lately, there are some people wondering about using penis plugs as a form of birth control. Since penis plugs go inside the urethra, they may seem like good devices for birth control. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. While some penis plugs are made to stop the flow of semen, it is done for the erotic purpose and doesn’t work as reliable birth control.

In other words: penis plugs should NOT be used for birth control.

Penis Plugs and Sperm Stoppers

Penis plugs and other urethral toys are inserted into the urethra. Some plugs are solid, which means that they are made to prevent the semen from being ejaculated from the penis. Solid plugs provide unique feelings to those who like this sort of sensation. It is a very powerful feeling and a great erotic experience.

Solid penis plugs, however, can be used in many different ways. Some people prefer to keep them inside during ejaculation, while others choose to remove the plug during ejaculation for the purpose of achieving a stronger orgasm.

As you can see, penis plugs are sex toys made for urethral play. Their purpose is not to provide birth control and thus cannot be used for this purpose.

Penis Plugs as Birth Control: Why it Doesn’t Work

Solid plugs may seem like a good idea for birth control, since they keep the semen inside during ejaculation. This can lead to retrograde ejaculation, where the semen goes back to the bladder and is expelled with the next urination. It may sound like a good idea, but it actually isn’t. Penis plugs simply cannot be used as a reliable form of birth control. Not to mention they can actually be dangerous for the people involved.

The thing is that even with a solid plug, you cannot actually predict what happens with the semen. While it’s possible to keep some of the semen inside and make it go back to the bladder, this mechanism is in no way complete.

There is always leakage and dripping, even with the tightest plugs. You may not always see large quantities of semen during ejaculation if you have a solid penis plug inserted, but the dripping caused by the force of ejaculation makes it unsafe to use penis plugs for birth control.

So, it’s unreliable, to put it mildly. Keep in mind that this is just for those instances where a penis plug is used correctly. Many times, the plug moves up and down, which leads to even more leakage and dripping.

The things is that penis plugs are not just unreliable for birth control. They can also be very dangerous for the both partners. Not all penis plugs can be safely used during intercourse, and frequent use of this kind can actually lead to numerous injuries for the both people involved. Even the smoothest, smallest penis plugs can hurt the cervix and cause trouble for the man if they move during sex. While it is possible to have sex with a penis plug inside, a combination of a solid penis plug and vaginal intercourse is not the best idea.

Conclusion

In other words: it may look like a nice idea, but it isn’t. Do not attempt to use penis plugs for birth control. They are not reliable nor safe to be used that way. If you attempt to do this, you are not only risking pregnancy but also injuries, since most penis plugs are not made to be constantly used during intercourse. It may lead to injuries to both parties involved.

In short, avoid penis plugs as birth control. Do not even attempt to use them for this purpose! While solid penis plugs are made to keep some of the ejaculate inside, chances are that there will be drippings and leakage, which will render them useless as a form of birth control. Not to mention you can hurt your partner and yourself in the process. For these reasons, it is advisable to avoid using penis plugs and other urethral toys for birth control.

“In and Out” Sounding: How To

SoundingOne of the most exciting things about urethral stimulation is that you can play with your toys in many different ways. It all depends on your preferences and experience level, but there are definitely various things you can try.

For many people, one of the most exciting things about urethral stimulation is to use the toy to simulate penetrative sex. In other words, to penetrate your penis with a toy. Typically, it is done using in and out movements, in which the sound or a penis plug is moved in and out of the penis. Basically, it means “fucking” yourself (or your partner!) with a urethral toy. While not all people enjoy this activity, many claim this is the best and most arousing part of urethral stimulation.

“In and Out” Sounding Tips

If you wish to try in and out sounding, good news: there is actually nothing preventing you to try. There are not many rules and guidelines for this form of a play, though as with any other form of urethral stimulation, it is vital to stay safe and know how to proceed. For this reason, inexperienced users are advised to try this form of stimulation with an experienced partner who will sound them. If you wish to try this activity on your own, the most important thing is to go slowly and gently! This is an absolute must to keep yourself safe and without injuries to your urethra.

Here are some tips on safe in and out sounding:

Insert the toy carefully. The toy has to be inserted with care. Do not rush things out.

Use plenty of lube. In and out sounding makes a lot of friction, so to prevent injuries to your urethra, make sure to use plenty of lube. Lube the toy and your penis before you start. If it ever becomes a bit too rough, make sure to re-lube before continuing.

Go gently. It is an imperative to go slowly and gently. While it might be difficult to maintain the slow rhythm as you get aroused, it is vital to stay safe. Do not go too rough!

Go only an inch or two. One important thing to know about in and out sounding: the stroking motions should be short. You should move the toy out only for an inch or two! Use short strokes and do not move the toy more than an inch or two up and down! This is important to maintain safety.

Do not go too deep. In and out stimulation is ideal for shorter urethral toys, such as ribbed and textured penis plugs and short sounds. It is generally not made for deep stimulation, so make sure not to insert the toys too deeply into your urethra.

You may need to downsize, but be careful. This is a tricky one. Generally speaking, toys that are too thin are reserved for experienced users only, since they are sharper and more dangerous. On the other hand, in and out sounding generally feels better with a toy that is one size (but not more!) smaller than your usual size. It will make the toy glide with ease. That being said, it is dangerous to use toys that are too thin, so if you are only starting out (and using toys one size bigger than the smaller one or two sizes bigger than the smallest one), using a thinner toy for in and out sounding may be too dangerous. This is why beginner users are absolutely encouraged to either stretch their urethra first or not to try in and out sounding at all. You may try with your usual toy diameter and see how it goes. If it’s too tight for in and out sounding it’s better to wait until you are more experienced or until your urethra is properly stretched. Do not use super-thin toys for this purpose! Again, those are reserved for experienced users.

Use appropriate toys. Always use only toys specially designed for urethral stimulation. If you wish to try in and out massage, it’s best to use short, textured toys made for the purpose. These toys with bumps and textured exterior will provide additional stimulation during use and will enhance the in and out motions. Recommended products:

Additional Tips

  • While the article is focused on penis and male users, it’s important to know that women can enjoy this type of urethral massage, too. All you need to do is to choose a smaller toy than the one appropriate for penis sounding. Use plenty of lube and try gentle in and out movements to see how they feel. However, keep in mind not to go too deeply. If you feel any pain or if your urethral toy reaches the end of urethra, you should stop and wait until your body recovers. Next time, try using shorter movements.
  • That being said, there are some women who enjoy bladder teasing (just like there are men who like the same thing). If you wish to do this keep in mind that this activity is more dangerous so you need to be as gentle as possible. Women have a much shorter urethra, which makes for a greater risk to develop urinary tract infections. As usual with these types of extreme sexual activities, it’s best to consult a doctor before doing anything!
  • Keep in mind that in and out movements will probably irritate your urethral walls, even if you use plenty of lube (and you should always use lube!) Expect some burning during urination. Some people also experience a bit of pain, but it doesn’t last long. If the pain and burning sensation persist for hours or into following days make sure to consult your doctor.
  • If you experience pain (particularly sharp pain), significant discomfort, discharge, blood, cramps or any other problem, it is important to seek medical attention immediately! To stay safe, it is best to find a kink-friendly doctor beforehand. Ask for their opinion and advice how to stay safe during sounding and make sure to contact them if you encounter any sort of a problem!

How to Choose Penis Plugs – Experience and Desired Effect

509tPenis plugs are among the most popular urethral toys, and for a reason. They are great way for beginner users to get familiar with the feeling of urethral stimulation and to test their boundaries: is this for me? How does it feel? Another good thing about penis plugs is that they allow you to train and stretch your urethra, which is a very much needed process if you wish to fully enjoy urethral stimulation.

That being said, penis plugs are much more than just a training device. There are so many different designs, shapes and sizes of penis plugs so they can be used for many different things and sensations. In a way, penis plugs are more versatile and multi-functional than urethral sounds, because they can be used for several different things.

Your choice of a penis plug will largely depend on two things: your experience level and the desired effect.

Experience Level

Generally speaking, there are three types of users: beginners, intermediate and experienced. There are no clear-cut boundaries between these categories and these will largely depend on your individual experience. In other words, only you can tell when you are ready to move to the next level, so to speak.

That being said, beginner users are not difficult to recognize: those are people with little or no experience with urethral stimulation. These people also have an untrained (unstreched) urethra, so stretching and training might be the first step to do. Penis plugs ideal for these people are typically shorter and thinner in size (though not way too thin) and very smooth. This is made to ensure good comfort and easy insertion.

Intermediate users are those with some experience with urethral stimulation. These users can move on to bigger and more complex penis plugs, such as those with bumps and other additions.

Experienced users are those with a stretched urethra, who know how to use urethral toys without a problem and with a lot of experience with numerous toys. These people should not have a problem using any type of a penis plug.

Of course, these categories can be defined in different ways, but it’s important to understand that some things do depend on your experience. If you are a newbie, you should stick to the penis plugs suitable for beginners. Do not jump straight into more complex and intense toys. Take some time to stretch your urethra properly and get used to the feeling.

Desired Effect

The desired effect basically means what you wish to achieve with your penis plug and how you want to use it. For example, some men want to use their penis plug during intercourse or masturbation, for maximizing the experience. Others wish to wear their penis plug daily and for long periods of time. Some men want to use them for BDSM and painful pleasures.

With so many different designs, it’s important to know which plug is good for the intended purpose. In order to fully enjoy your penis plug, you need to choose the right one for the job.

Generally speaking, most penis plugs can be used for many different things, but some are specially designed for specific sensations and acts:

  • Sperm stoppers. These penis plugs are specially made to prevent the semen to be expelled from the body. Most of them are short so they are relatively comfortable. Some have a special ball on the end to keep the fluids inside, while the others are regular penis plugs, only solid and without a hole for fluids to go through.
  • Hollow penis plugs. These plugs have a “cum thru” hole, which means you can urinate and ejaculate with the plug on. These plugs are ideal for long-term wear since you don’t have to take them off to do basic functions like urinating. They are also typically made to be smooth and comfortable, so they are truly great if you wish to wear your penis plug for hours (or days!)
  • Ribbed penis plugs. Penis plugs that are heavily textured, with ribs, bumps and other additions are made to provide additional stimulation during use. They are great for enhancing the pleasure, particularly during masturbation. The best effect is typically gained by moving the plug in and out a couple of inches, which makes the bumps massage urethral walls in an arousing, pleasurable way.
  • Long penis plugs. These penis plugs are intended for deeper urethral stimulation, even though most of them are still shorter than urethral sounds. In other words, if you want to go truly deep, you will need to use a sound designed for deep urethral stimulation. But these penis plugs still can go deep enough to be satisfying, so it’s worth having at least one in your collection.
  • Torture plugs. These are extreme penis plugs made for intense sensations or even pain. They are typically made as part of a larger device made for the entire genital area. Sometimes they are part of a cock lock system while in others they come with spiked glans rings and other extreme additions.

Urethral Play FAQ

415tHere are some commonly asked questions about urethral stimulation and urethral devices.

If you wish to try any type of urethral sounding or other urethral stimulation make sure you are familiar with basics.

You need to stay safe during these activities!

Is urethral sounding truly pleasurable? It seems like an uncomfortable medical procedure.

Yes, urethral sounding is pleasurable. Urethral stimulation of any kind can be very stimulating, so it’s not surprising many people truly like this type of arousal. A feeling of urethral stimulation is truly one of a kind.

And yet, when you are at the doctor’s, it might not seem pleasurable at all. Why is so?

First of all, it has to be said that urethral procedures done for medical reasons are not uncomfortable for all people. They can be pleasurable even if this situation. In fact, this is how many people discover they are attracted to this type of stimulation in the first place. Many doctors report their patients getting aroused during urethral sounding and other urethral procedures. This is normal.

On the other hand, do not be surprised if you find urethral sounding uncomfortable when done for medical purposes. It is simply not the same as doing it in the privacy of your own home. Urethral sounding done by your doctor is a medical procedure, and it’s not done to produce sexual arousal – it is done out of medical reasons. It is understandable if it’s not pleasurable as such. Also, doctor’s offices are not the most arousing places to be, and many people are nervous during these procedures. All these factors combined often make for a less than arousing experience. That doesn’t mean that urethral stimulation is not extremely arousing when done in the privacy of your own home.

But what if I am aroused by the medical aspects of it?

This is also a possibility. You might be into medical fetish and medical toys in general. It is hardly an unheard of activity: there are many people who enjoy roleplaying of this kind. Urethral sounds and other urethral toys are great for those who like this fetish. Many bondage and other kink activities incorporate some aspect of a medical play, so if it works for you and your partner, go for it!

Why are many urethral sounds curved while penis plugs tend to be straight?

445tPenis plug and urethral sound designs tend to vary greatly, so you will be able to find many devices of different shapes and sizes. That being said, it is true that urethral sounds are often curved on the end while penis plugs tend to be straight. Why is so?

The main reason is because of the slightly different ways in which sounds and plugs are used. While plugs are simply inserted into urethra, most sounds are made to reach truly deep. To achieve so, they need to follow the natural shape of the urethral canal, all the way to the end. Not to mention that some urethral sounds are made to go all the way to the bladder.

While bladder stimulation should be done only if you are familiar with the anatomy and how it works, keep in mind that many urethral sounds are made after true medical devices used for numerous procedures. As such, they copy the design of those medical devices.

Do I need to be pierced to enjoy urethral stimulation?

No. Urethral devices such as urethral sounds and penis plugs do not require you to have a pierced penis. While piercings can be used to enhance the pleasure you absolutely do not have to have any genital piercing to try urethral devices.

Urethral toys such as penis plugs and urethral sounds use your natural hole: urethral canal. They are carefully inserted into urethra and provide stimulation to your penis from the inside. You do not need to be pierced to enjoy this.

Some urethral devices come with glans rings made to keep the device in place and to provide additional stimulation during use, but you do not need to be pierced to enjoy this type of devices.

On the other hand, having a PA piercing or another type of a penis piercing can help you enhance urethral pleasure even more. Some urethral devices are designed in such a way to use holes created by the piercings or to get attached to your piercings. If you have a pierced penis you will sure find a way to enhance urethral stimulation even more. That being said, you do not have to be pierced to try urethral stimulation.

Is urethral stimulation safe?

Urethral stimulation is safe if done with caution. This is why it’s important to be informed and to learn a lot about different urethral devices and how to use them. A basic knowledge of anatomy is also needed. This is a highly pleasurable activity but not one to try without being informed about safe practices. If you are a newbie to urethral stimulation make sure to learn a lot about these practices and how to stay safe.

Also, it’s vital to always use specialized toys made for urethral stimulation. Never shove a random object down your urethra! This is very dangerous. Stick to smaller urethral toys first and build your way from there. Also, don’t forget to use plenty of lube. Always use your common sense. If it becomes uncomfortable or painful at any point it’s a sign that you should stop and try later with a smaller toy.

Whatever you do, make sure to inform yourself about anatomy and safe practices so you can enjoy urethral stimulation without problems and injuries.

Can I be erect?

427tUrethral stimulation is used for sexual arousal, so erection and orgasms are often the goal. Inserting a device might be another thing, though. For some urethral devices, it’s important to start when you’re flaccid. It is more comfortable and safer that way. Not to mention that some devices can be inserted or taken out only when you are flaccid. Other urethral devices can be inserted or taken out even when you have an erection. This is one of the reasons why you need to be informed and know how to use your chosen urethral device.

If you want to use a device that has to be inserted while you’re flaccid, keep in mind that the same rule applies for taking the device out. Do not force a sound or a plug out! If it seems “stuck” while you’re erect, don’t panic. It will be easy to take it out once your erection is gone.

That being said, it is generally safe to achieve erection when having a urethral device inserted – this goes for almost any type of a urethral device. After all, they are made for sexual pleasure. However, if in doubt, do check with the manufacturer.

The same goes for orgasming: it is safe to do so while wearing a urethral device, though what happens with semen will depend on the device itself. Some devices, typically penis plugs, have a hollow body so all fluids can flow free. It means you can cum while wearing these devices without a problem. Since the same goes for all fluids, you can safely urinate with the device on. It means you can wear your urethral device for a prolonged periods of time.

Other devices have a solid body and cannot let the fluids go. It makes for a very unique experience. There are even specialized urethral devices, known as sperm stoppers that are made to achieve this feeling.

How long can I keep a urethral device in?

This will depend on a urethral device in question. Some of urethral toys are specially designed for long-term wear, so they are meant to be inserted and kept inside for a long time. Those are typically special penis plugs you can wear for hours (and even more), even while performing everyday activities. Such plugs are typically hollow so they allow for urination (see above).

On the other hand, there are urethral devices made for short term-wear only. Urethral sounds are typically those you cannot keep in for a long time. It all depends on the design and intended use, so when in doubt, check twice to make sure your urethral toy is indeed suitable for a long term wear.

Difference between Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds

plugsUrethral sounds and penis plugs are the most popular urethral toys in the world.

If you are interested in urethral play and stimulation, it’s vital to know the difference between the most popular urethral devices and how to use them properly.

This is the only way to achieve satisfaction.

Before You Start

A special caution must be taken by those who wish to try urethral stimulation for the first time. Keep in mind, some urethral toys are made especially for the more advanced users and you should not use them unless your urethra is stretched properly and unless you are familiar with more basic forms of urethral stimulation.

It’s always best to start with smaller toys and build your way up from there. If you can’t find specializes stretcher and trainer toys, start with the smallest, smoothest urethral toy you can find.

Also, one important thing to keep in mind at all times: use only toys specially designed for this type of stimulation. While it may seem tempting to try different things, do not ever shove a random object down your penis. Always stick to proper urethral devices only.

Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds: The Difference

Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are toys designed for urethral stimulation. In some ways, they achieve the same purpose and are used in a similar way. Both are designed to be used for urethral penetration, that is, they are inserted into the urethral opening. Most of these toys are designed for men, but some women can use them as well. If you are a woman who wishes to use urethral toys it’s best to stick to smaller toys.

Most users of urethral toys are men, which means most of the popular types of toys are made with men in mind. Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are inserted into the urethra and can be used to stimulate penis on the inside.

So, what’s the difference? The main difference is the shape and length, though there are some variations. Typically speaking, urethral sounds are longer and they are made for deep urethral exploration. This is why they are recommended for more experienced users who are already familiar with urethral stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, tend to be shorter. They are great for beginners who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. On the other hand, there are more extreme penis plugs out there, made with experienced users in mind, so they are definitely not a beginner’s toy only.

Another difference to keep in mind is the purpose. Urethral Sounds are actually medical instruments used by real doctors. This is why they are known as medical toys, though they are not used for medical play only. That being said, urethral sounds used as sex toys are still shaped in the same (or very similar) way as the medical toys used in hospitals. Some of them are long enough to reach all the way down to the prostate and bladder. In these cases, a special care must be taken not to damage these organs, though it’s also possible to use urethral sounds for prostate stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, are sex toys only. They are usually not as long to reach that deep into urethra. They also come in many different shapes and textures. They are made for penis stimulation and they can accompany different beads and other curves made for enhancing the effect. Some penis plugs also come with a glans ring. The ring is there to perform a dual function: it keeps the plug safely inside urethra and it also provides additional stimulation during use.

The main differences between urethral sounds and penis plugs:

  • Penis Plugs: shorter, made in numerous designs (straight, wavy, bumpy, etc.), made for penis stimulation but usually not long enough for prostate stimulation, often include glans rings for added stimulation and to keep the plug in place.
  • Urethral Sounds: longer, straight or slightly curved, used as medical devices (and for medical play), made for deep urethral stimulation. They come in several standard types: Hegar, Van Buren, Pratt, and more.

Female Urethral Stimulation

Female Urethral StimulationUrethral stimulation and urethral play are very popular among people who wish to expand their sexual pleasure and to experience some unique sensations.

It’s not surprising that urethral sounds and plugs are so popular.

While urethral stimulation is typically considered a male domain (since male urethra is larger and longer), it’s important to know that women too can enjoy this type of sexual stimulation.

The Excitement of Urethral Stimulation

Generally speaking, urethral stimulation works very similar to both men and women. They are both based on the fact that inserting objects into urethra produces a very specific sensation, which many people find exciting and pleasurable. Even more, urethral stimulation massages some of the most sensitive spots in the body, but from a different place than usual, which can produce very arousing effect.

It’s therefore not surprising that many people like to try urethral stimulation. It’s usually believed that these people are men. There is some logic to it. Male urethra is naturally larger and longer, so it’s not so surprising that it can accommodate a penis plug or a urethral sound.

Female urethra, on the other hand, is much shorter and smaller in every sense of the word. Does that mean women cannot enjoy urethral stimulation?

Urethral Stimulation for Women

Luckily, the answer to the above question is: “no”. It does not mean that women cannot experience urethral stimulation. In fact, there are many women who do. There are many women who can, and do, enjoy urethral sounding or other forms of urethral play.

And it’s pleasurable! While urethral stimulation in men can lead to prostate stimulation, in women it can lead to clitoral stimulation. Remember, clitoris is much more than what’s seen outside the body. By inserting plugs and sounds into urethra, a woman can stimulate her clitoris from yet another point and experience new heights of sexual pleasure.

That being said, there are some differences between male and female urethral stimulation that have to be taken into account. They mainly come from the fact that female urethra is smaller and shorter. It means there is a greater risk of urinary tract infections and injuries if sounding is not done carefully and gently.

Woman’s smaller urethra also means prolonged training and urethral stretching. As you probably know, urethra has to be stretched gradually in order to be able to receive plugs and sounds. This is why it’s vital to start small and work your way up from there.

Female Urethral Toys

Since female urethra is small and short, it’s highly recommended to start with the smallest toys available. Try a specialized female urethral plug or a very small, beginner’s urethral penis plug or a small sound. The goal is to start training and stretching your urethra. At the same time, you should start to familiarize yourself with the feeling.

Try it slowly to see if this type of stimulation is arousing and pleasurable to you. It’s vital to go slowly and gradually. In case you decide urethral stimulation is something you enjoy, you can try with a bit bigger urethral toys.

Keep in mind: while female urethra is generally smaller, it can be stretched enough to receive regular plugs and sounds. You probably won’t be able to go as deep as men can (nor would that be safe), but you will be able to insert regular urethral toys once you have your urethra properly stretched and trained. All you need is patience and quality urethral toys specially designed for this use. Never try to insert anything that is not specifically made to be used as a urethral toy! Think about your safety so you can enjoy urethral stimulation without a problem and to a full satisfaction.

  • Is it possible to stimulate your prostate during urethral sounding? There is something called “deep urethral stimulation” or “deep sounding”. There are specialized sounds made to reach very deep into the urethra. However, these toys are recommended to more experienced users.
  • What is the best beginner urethral toy? A beginners’ urethral toy should be small and thin to accommodate a person’s narrow urethral opening. It takes a bit of practice to train and widen your urethra. This is why it’s best to use one of the beginner’s urethral toys. Go slowly and don’t forget to use plenty of lube! Another good thing to use is a penis toy with a glans ring: it will heighten the pleasure and it will keep the toy in place.

Most Popular Body Jewelry Types

Popular Jewelry TypesThere are many different and unique body jewelry types in the world. Body jewelry is varied and comes in many different shapes, sizes and styles.

These are the most popular types of body jewelry:

Captive Bead Rings

Captive Bead Ring, also known as “CBR”, is the most popular body jewelry style in the world. These rings are so popular that many people call any body jewelry piece “a ring”, even if it’s not a ring at all.

Captive Bead Rings are circular in shape. They have a removable ball or charm pressured by both sides to keep it in place. To open the ring one has to remove the ball, which is usually done using specially designed ring opening pliers. To close the ring, it’s best to use ring closing pliers in order to avoid damage to the ring.

These rings are widely used for almost all piercing types. They are very practical and relatively affordable, so it’s not surprising they are so popular. One downside to these rings is that it’s easy to lose the bead so it’s advisable to always carry a replacement bead in order to keep your jewelry in place.

Barbells

Barbells are among the most popular jewelry types in the world. They come in many different styles and sizes and they can be used for almost any piercing imaginable. The decorations vary significantly: some barbells are very plain and simple while the others are richly ornamented.

Each barbell has a shaft and a ball on each end. The balls are threaded to the shaft and there are two ways to make a threading. Internally threaded barbells have a ball with a threaded post and the shaft is smooth. Externally threaded barbells have a shaft with a threaded post. Internally threaded barbells are much better and safer to use.

Depending on the shape of the shaft, barbells can be divided into:

  • Straight barbells: They have a straight shaft with a ball on each side.
  • Curved barbells: They have a curved shaft. They are often used for navel piercings.
  • Circular barbells: They have a curved shaft and resemble rings that are not fully closed.
  • Spirals: These shaft have a spiral or wavy shaft.
  • Industrial barbells: They look like straight barbells, only with a much longer shaft.

Studs

Studs are relatively simple jewelry pieces particularly popular for lip, tongue and nostril piercings. Studs include a post with a decoration on one end and a flat or round base on the other end. The decoration is typically simple: a bead or a small gem. The base is often wider than the shaft to prevent the jewelry to fall out.

Studs are often worn in lip piercings, where they are known as labret studs. Labrets have wide, flat bases on the end. Studs are also popular for nose piercings, where there are known as “Nose Bones”. Studs are typically easy to put on and remove.

Ear Plugs

Ear plugs are jewelry pieces specially designed for stretched earlobes and other types of stretched piercings. They are made in larger gauges to accommodate the stretched piercing. Many of these plugs are made in organic materials, such as glass, wood, stone, horn & bone. Plugs can also be made of metals.

There are several distinctive ear plug types: double flared, single flared and no-flared plugs. Plugs without flares and those with only one flare require O rings to keep them in place.

Ear plugs should not be confused for flesh tunnels, another popular jewelry type. Unlike plugs, tunnels and earlets have a hole in the middle. Flesh tunnels also come as double flared, single flared or no flared designs.

Bamboo Wood Tunnel(s)

This saddled tunnel (Earlet) is made of real bamboo so it is an organic piece, and a very nice earring. The bamboo gives it a truly natural earthy look. No o-rings are necessary since it is saddled.
