Outer labia are an important part of the female anatomy that can be pierced to create stunning effects. Outer labia is a major part of female vulva so any piercing on this spot can truly be attractive and bold. The good news is that this isn’t a very painful piercing so outer labia piercings are ideal for those who want to have a female genital piercings but don’t want anything extreme or complex. Outer labia is also known as “outer lips”. They tend to be large and contain fatty tissue, which makes them soft to touch and very pillow-like. Outer lips hide the urethral and vaginal opening if the woman has her legs closed since they are positioned on either side of the vulva.
Since outer labia is a thick tissue it is important to understand that the piercing through this body part is relatively long and more complex than inner labia piercing. On the other hand, this is still a relatively simple genital piercing that many women decide to have. Some women choose to have only one outer labia piercing but most choose to have a pair, one on the each outer lip. This is why outer labia piercings are often done in pairs. Some women even choose to have more than one pair of outer labia piercings so they get four, six or even more outer labia piercings. Typical jewelry for this piercing is a Captive Bead Ring. This is a very beautiful piercing that can attract attention from a lover. However, it is important to note that it usually doesn’t enhance sexual pleasure, unlike many other female genital piercings.
