Genital jewelry is body jewelry made for genital piercings. There are many different types of male and female genital piercings and as a result, there are numerous genital jewelry styles used. It is important to note, however, that most of the genital jewelry styles and types are regular body jewelry types. Most genital piercings use the same styles and designs of body jewelry that is commonly used for other piercings. However, genital jewelry pieces have to be super smooth so they don’t hurt the sensitive body parts. This is one important thing to keep in mind when choosing genital jewelry for your piercing.
Since there are many different genital piercings there are also many genital jewelry styles to use. Certain piercing use only one jewelry type while others can use several different designs. The most common genital jewelry types are Captive Bead Rings and other body piercing rings, circular barbells, straight barbells and curved barbells. Since genital piercings, particularly penis piercings, are done on a somewhat larger gauge than other body piercings, genital jewelry is typically of a slightly larger gauge. Generally speaking, penis piercing jewelry is of the 12 gauge to 8 gauge in size. The same goes for most of the female genital jewelry types. Another thing to keep in mind is that genital jewelry has to be made of high-quality materials that are completely safe for the body to protect the genital area.
