It all started at 3am on Mother’s Day 2009. 4 Months of planning and courage building had come to a pinnacle when I walked into Cloud 9 in Birmingham, AL. I wanted to get a Reverse Prince Albert. After assuring the piercer that I had prepared myself for the procedure, we walked to the back. I was to be fitted with a 10ga CBR (captive bead ring) that was roughly 1inch in diameter. After being marked, I laid on the table. The receiving tube in my urethra was unpleasant but bearable. Then came the moment when the needle tears a hole.
I removed my first Apadravya about 15 years ago after having it for more than 5 years. I was doing a lot of figure modeling and had to keep removing it for posing and it just became too much of a hassle. Decided I wanted it back and I'm glad I did it again.
As the needle went through the bottom of the shaft, there was a slight pinch, but as the big push through the head started there wasn't much pain, just a lot of pressure.
As the needle popped out the top again there was some pinching, but not too bad.
I always wanted to have my junk pierced but either was in a relationship with someone that didn't want me to or didn't want the down time. I've been divorced several years and figured what the hell. I contacted a local guy and decided on an Amphallang and a apadravya 8ga w/ a bigger ball on the top of the apadravya. He was pretty excited as he has done several but not both in the same sitting. The jewelry coming in took forever, I later found out the owner was hemming and hawwing about the cost of the metal and the piercer started his own deal.
I had a PA dating back to 2006. Initially at 10g and stretched to 4g (and a month ago even to 2g but that didn't really feel good, often a little bit sore). Recently a longterm relationship ended and since my girlfriend wasn't too happy about the PA I often took it out, found it to be a hassle with rings & pliers but also wasn't 100% happy with the curved barbells I had in more recently.
So, after thinking about it a long time and reading experiences here, I finally decided to have the PA turned into an Apadravya. I always found this to be the most awesome piercing a guy could have ...
A year and a half ago, I got a PA, which a couple of months ago opened up from my urethra, rendering it unfit for jewelry. Although I thought it wouldn't be too bad without a barbell, I really missed the metal. After putting a lot of thought into it, I decided to go with both an apadravya and a hafada.
So, I've always wanted to get pierced, but I never really had the ability to, mostly due to pressure from my family. Once I turned 18 I got my first tattoo, and from then on had been seriously considering getting pierced. Now that I'm 21, I thought it would be a good time to get one, as I had recently come upon a windfall of cash. What better way to spend it than to pay a guy to shove a needle through my ?
I had an apadravya a couple of years ago, pierced at 14ga which I thought was too small but didn't say anything. Eventually the bar came out and I let the hole close up. Recently, the PA wasn't comfortable so decided to try for it again but went to someone else.
I decided to do it on a friday during my lunch break so I'd have the rest of the day to relax and sit at my desk and the weekend to recover. I could've done it after work but that'd mean having to walk, then ride the subway, then the commuter train then walk home.
It's been 3 weeks since I had my PA converted to an Apadravya and I couldn't be happier! I have wanted to do this for quite some time but never took the leap. I finally went in to have it done and was more than a little nervous. I found myself with my pants down lying on the table and my piercer ready to go. I was doing my breathing when she said she was getting ready to go. I had to tell her to stop, I wasn't ready. I thought to myself, don't be stupid, you really want this and have come this far. I told her ok I was ready and started deep breaths. BAM!
One of the biggest heart aches in my life as a pierced person was the abandonment of my dual apadravya piercings in order to get my doctor to treat an infection in one of them with sulpha-based meds. It was a serious infection and I had seen several other doctors who all said the same thing, basically; Lose the jewelry or lose the pierced bit.
Since I like having a glans on the end of my penis, I pulled the jewelry and got the drugs, then I got better. But three of the four holes healed closed, the only one that was still open at all barely accepted a 16 gauge taper on the first try.
I received my apadravya on November 18th exactly two weeks after getting my pair of dydoes.I went back to infinite body piercing and was greeted by ed my piercer who was expecting me as me and him were corresponding over emails.I signed all the required paperwork and me and ed went back and went over all the usual from placement to healing and aftercare.After that it was time for the moment of truth i was to be pierced at 6gauge with a 1 5/16 barbell with 3/8 beads and im not gonna lie there was defiantly pain but the pain was not unbearable and with the 6gauge needle there was really no bleed
