Genital piercings are generally considered very painful and extreme. It is not surprising why so many people feel so: genital area is indeed very sensitive so the thought of having a piercing “down there” makes many people terrified!
Luckily, it is not all so frightening. While there are indeed some very painful and extreme genital piercings not all of them are particularly painful nor extreme. Indeed, there are many genital piercings that are actually less painful than piercings done on other body parts.
In other words: if you are scared of pain but would love to have a genital piercing you can try some of these relatively simple and painless genital piercings. You’ll see that most of these piercings are either surface piercings or those affecting only the skin and not the tissue underneath.
Here are some of the least painful male genital piercings you can get:
Hafada piercing is among the least painful genital piercings you can get. This is a male genital piercing done on the skin of the scrotum. You may think that a piercing done on this specific body part is bound to be painful, but the thing is that piercing only the skin is not painful – what hurts is if the piercing affects the underlying tissue. However, hafada piercing is very simple and it affects only the scrotal skin.
The more complex modifications one on the scrotum are known as trans scrotal procedures and these are considered extreme modifications. A simple hafada, on the other hand, is a simple and almost painless piercing. It also heals very quickly and doesn’t cause much discomfort, unless you sit directly on the jewelry. While this is a surface piercing (and, thus, prone to migration and rejection), it is also almost a painless piercing so it’s a good choice for those who want to try genital piercings but are scared of pain.
Guiche piercing is done on the perineum, just under the scrotum. This is a very sensitive area, so guihe piercing can actually bring more pleasure and enhance sensitivity. As such, it is considered a functional piercing: it can increase the pleasure and it can actually make you enjoy sexual stimulation more.
The best of all? Guiche is not particularly painful and it’s easy to perform. This is a great thing for those who wish to add something extra to their sex life and improve sensitivity but do not want to go after more extreme genital piercings.
Frenum and Lorum
Frenum and lorum are male genital piercings that are very simple to perform. Frenum and lorum piercings are performed on the skin of the penis, typically centrally on the underside of the penis. Frenum piercings have different placements, from just underside of the penis head all the way down to the shaft. Lorum piercings are simply frenum piercings positioned very low on the shaft, almost on the base of the penis.
These piercings are typically performed quickly and without much problem. They are also very quick to heal – most frenum and lorum piercings will heal in several weeks or a month. Since only the skin of the penis is involved and not the underlying tissue, these piercings are not particularly painful nor complex to perform. These are a great choice for those who wish to have a penis piercing but are not ready yet for more complex piercings such as Apadravya and Ampallang or even a Reverse Prince Albert.
Prince Albert (PA) is the most popular male genital piercing. It is also different than other piercings on the list because it is not a surface piercing and it also look more extreme and painful. The truth is that PA piercings are not extreme and they are not particularly painful. This is great news for all people who wish to have a Prince Albert piercing but are scared of the pain!
Prince Albert uses a natural hole (urethra) for one of its openings, so the only pierced part is a very thin tissue on the underside of the penis.
PA is a surprisingly painless piercing. While it might be more painful than other piercings on this list, it is definitely less painful than many “regular” (non-genital) piercings, so there is definitely no reason to be terrified of it. If you want to have a Prince Albert piercing do not hesitate: chances are that it will not be particularly painful nor uncomfortable.
