I have some random questions regarding female gential piercings ....... want them answered or ideas given before I go to get one done.
Will ask behind a cut as to not offend anyone who is not into this.
Any help or advice is much appreciated
There is no gentle way to ask the things I wish to know so i am just going to be frank with it.
I am looking at getting my clit pierced, but I want some questions answered first.
I am concerned on whether or not you loose sensation or is it heightened?
Is there some reason why they would not be able to pierce it?
What is the better piercing clit or above the clit? A ring or a barbell?
What's the go with when your menstruatiing? Would the piercing be affected by wearing a pad or is it better to use tampons for that time?
Can you feel the piercing when your walking stuff like that?
My main concern is the hygeine thing...............I am a clean person but will the piercing affect some PH levels or something or other in the genitals and the whole menstruating thing is my other concern stopping me at present time.
Any advice or recommendations would be awesome!
i can't particularly help as i don't have a genital piercing, but you may find some useful information at www.bmezine.com
as you have posted in sydney females, i'll assume youre also looking for a good piercer in the area? i had a good experience with industrial strength at newtown, but mine was not such an intimate or intense piercing.
genital piercing can be dangerous (if done incorrectly) and should only be practiced by someone very very good at what they do. i'd be inclined to check out polymorph, they are a bit pricey, but they do a lot of harder body modification styles (eg cuttings, brandings, implants, etc) and have experience with more edgy stuff. if i was looking into a piercing like that, id feel more comfortable with a practitioner who is right into the scene and very experienced.
to try and answer your questions, i believe the consensus is that pleasure can be very much enhanced by this piercing, though i personally feel this may be psychological, as i found with my nipple piercing.
your piercer would have to check if you are anatomically suitable, but if not there maybe another piercing you could have - eg hood, labia, vertical or horizontal etc.
i think you would most likely be initially pierced with a barbell, probably curved, and longer than necessary to accommodate for swelling.
placement depends on your preference and anatomy. im not sure that the clit itself is usually pierced, more the hood, or behind the clit. the VCH (vertical clitoral hood) piercing is very popular at the moment.
im sure you would be fine to wear a pad during menstruation, but it might be more comfy and less icky to just wear a tampon. specifically during healing i would avoid menstruating onto the piercing because period blood is sort of 'expired' and i would therefore assume that it might harbour some nasties that could affect a healing wound.
again, i don't have this piercing but a friend who did claimed that when walking she could not only feel her piercing, but could be stimulated to orgasm by it! i'm a bit skeptical about this!
as for the ph balance of your vagina being affected, i haven't the foggiest, but surely a very high quality metal would be best to avoid such a thing, something like implant grade titanium or 316VM steel.
all these questions might be better answered at the bmezine community, but i hope this has helped a little.
its helped heaps, I will definately check out the site and talk to a few more people before doing anything with it. I do like to research all things before jumping in.
Cheers very much
Call the parlour you want to go to and chat with them. I think some of your questions would relate to your body specifically, but I'm sure any parlour would be happy to chat with you - and if they aren't, you don't want to go there anyway =)
