There are many different male intimate piercings you can try. The most common ones are penis piercings such as Prince Albert (PA) piercing, Reverse Prince Albert (Reverse PA) piercing, Dolphin piercing, Frenum and Lorum piercings, Ampallang and Apadravya. However, there are also other popular intimate piercings, such as Hafada and Guiche piercings. All of these require very specific jewelry types. If you use a wrong type, you can encounter numerous mens intimate jewelry problems.
Common Mens Intimate Jewelry Problems
If you have genital piercings, it is important to know what kind of jewelry to use. This is extremely important, because this area is very sensitive so you can hurt it easily. In order to avoid mens intimate jewelry problems, you need to know what kind of jewelry to use and what kind of jewelry to avoid.
Here are the most common mens intimate jewelry problems and how to avoid them:
In order to avoid mens inimate jewelry problems it is important to wear only smooth jewelry without any sharp edges. Smooth, round and straight jewelry is the best choice for genital piercings. It is important that your jewelry doesn’t have any sharp edges or decorations that may hurt the sensitive genital tissue. If you use rings with beads or other decorations, make sure that they are smooth so they do not cause any trouble. This is very important because sharp jewelry can hurt genital piercings in many ways.
Thin Jewelry (Small Gauge)
One of the worst things you can do with your intimate piercings is to wear jewelry that is too thin. Thin jewelry has a very small gauge so it can cut into sensitive tissue and cause a lot of trouble. This is often a problem with piercers who don’t have enough experience so they pierce genitalia with small, 12 gauge, 14 gauge or even 16 gauge needles. Even when this is the case, keep in mind that it is extremely dangerous to wear jewelry that is thinner than 10 gauge for many intimate piercings. Thin jewelry can cause a dangerous “cheese cutter” effect that you will sure want to avoid.
Keep in mind that your penis, testicles, perineum, anus and all the surrounding area tend to be very sensitive. It means that you can hurt them easily simply by wearing a wrong jewelry material. Some materials, such as organic body jewelry materials, are great for certain types of piercings but not for genital ones. The same goes for plastic materials and many other non-metal materials. Also, if you use gold for your intimate piercings, make sure to use only nickel-free gold. Good materials to use for intimate piercings are titanium and 316LVM Surgical Steel.
Wrong Jewelry Types
Perhaps the most annoying mens intimate jewelry problems come from choosing the wrong jewelry types for your piercing. Keep in mind that each piercing has very specific jewelry types it can safely use. For example, Ampallang and Apadravya use straight barbells as their main jewelry type. Trying to insert a ring or a circular barbell will not work, unless you get a custom fit and a very large ring. Even then, a ring may cause problems.
This is why it is important to always know the type of jewelry pieces you can use in your intimate piercing. Some genital piercings use straight barbells, while others use curved or circular barbells. Many piercings can use rings but you need to make sure that you can wear them in your piercing. Make sure to talk to your piercer to know what kind of jewelry types you can wear in your piercing.
