Thanks to those who recently gave me advice for getting a guiche. I followed your advice and am happy to report that it was not bad AT ALL. The shop had a customer appreciation day, so I also got a lorum at the same time.
She had me strip, lie on the table, and sit on my back with my right leg propped to the right. The poke was like getting blood taken, and before I knew it, I was pierced and done. The bleeding was minimal, the misery factor is low (I can tell it's there), but really--no misery or suffering. My nipple rings hurt like hades, but this was nothing.
Hello from Austin, TX
About 5 years ago I had my PA and a Double Guiche done. Unfortunately I had to remove the Guiches due to do some non related health issues. I've always kept the PA stretching to 0G for a short time then pulling back to a more comfortable 4G. However over the years there has been a thinning of skin which may finally require me to regrettably retire the PA before I end up with a meatotomy.
With the thought of retiring my PA,I starting thinking about getting my Double Guiche redone.
First of all I want to say thanks to all that have posted their experiences here. I have read many of them and because of these writings, I now have a Guiche piercing (done June 16 2015), and I can't wait for it to heal so I can change out the jewelry.
My very first body piercing was my left nipple done Jan. 6 2015. I was nervous to say the least, and did not know if I would be able to handle the whole experience or not. Being that it was a promise to God I was determined to go through with it regardless of the outcome.
My guiche guide/experience
While this piercing is alleged to have been something originating in Tahiti, there is really no substantiating evidence of this. The piercing is pronounced GEESH and is located in the perineum. This very sensitive area is located between the scrotum and the anus. In guys, this area is about twice as large as in ladies. There needs to be a level of pinchability in this area for this piercing...if the perineum is too taunt, the piercing may not take. The tendency is to pierce this with a curved barbell or captive bed ring. Healing time can be six plus months.
My first piercing was 8ga. PA, done 10 Oct. 14, and I'm wearing 1 ga. at the moment (plan to stop at 0 ga. and may drop back to 1 ga.) Entirely pleasant experience after that first (2 weeks pre-mature) attempt from 8 to 6 ga. Had my nips done 9 Jan. 15, which I wonder if my body will ever really get accustomed to? I am suddenly thinking seriously in favor of a guiche, but haven't seen near enough detail on healing expectations and possible problems. Seems to me that it might be as sensitive and slow to heal as the nip piercings are.
I've been wanting a guiche for awhile, so today I dropped in to the piercing shop to take care of it. The actual piercing took place after I got my new 4g cbr placed in my pa and discovered that the site where I retired my right hafada isn't healed sufficiently to repierce yet.
I have the real estate down there for multiple guiches, so she made preliminary marks in two places (farthest forward and farthest back) and let me look to check my preference.
Approximately two years ago I removed my captive bead ring guiche piercing as I found it to be uncomfortable. I was disappointed as I enjoyed having the piercing but could not tolerate the discomfort as I do a lot of sitting for my job and I ride a bicycle for recreation.
A few months ago, it occurred to me that it was the ball on the ring that was causing the discomfort and that a continuous segment ring would be worth a try. I discussed this with my piercer and was advised that I would probably have no better success with a segment ring.
