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.
Overall I would say this piercing was a little more intimate however just a little less painful then the nipple. I did go for 8g needle though. I now have a 8g barbell for the next 3 months minimum. I say go for it if you are thinking about it. Thats what I did
So I contemplated getting a guiche piercing for a while and today I finally did it!
After reading several reviews I decided to go with Cold Steel in Camden, London. My piercer, David, was excellent. He was a really nice guy and was easy to talk to during the process.
I'm so pleased with the piercing itself! I was slightly concerned that I would feel it rubbing when I walk but I don't even notice it there. The process is very quick and is over before you know it. The pain was slightly more noticeable than when I got my PA pierced but it is done within a second or two.
I finally got my Guiche pierced today. The Guiche has been the one piercing that I have wanted to get done ever since my first piercing 3 years ago (nipples). I have been so hesitant to getting it even though I have gotten 2 PA's and a Frenum done (Frenum sadly retired). My biggest concern was trying to find a piercer that had a lot of experience piercing Guiche's in the midwest since this seems to be somewhat of an uncommon piercing around these parts.
I got mine pierced at 6g with a 7/8'' curved Barbell. The piercing experience its self was very good.
