Hi guys!! I wanted to share my experience with you since all your comments where so much helpful. I've been interested in getting a PA since a couple years ago, never had the courage tho. I was never pierced before and don't get well with pain. Also I'm a doctor and been always concerned about the risk of infection mostly. Anyways, a couple weeks ago I was surfing the web and came across this forum and start reading your experiences. After thinking of it for a couple days i decided to man up and do this for once.
After years of consideration and research, I finally decided to man up and get a PA. A good friend of mine recommended a piercer that had done his and he had a great experience. I scheduled my appointment this past Sunday and had an 8g PA done.
I had been very concerned about 2 things: the piercing itself and peeing afterward. While getting poked in the junk wasn't pleasant (those who say 'no pain' are crazy) it wasn't awful. Peeing afterward wasn't bad and hasn't been bad either. However, the next day I bled terribly all day.
Well, This is my first post here and would like to share my experiences with PAs.
As I am 39 and married, I wanted to add some new stuff to play with my wife so afer some internet research on prince albert piercings, on february 2014, I was pierced.
It was an intersting experience. First time piercing, genital area, you know...
As I am uncut, i think, the placement of the circular bear ring was slightly over the frenum. It was unpleaseant and little confort. It didn't look good, for me. There was swelling and it was difficult to heal properly.
I had problems with my PA and searched therefore on the internet if the problems were normal to the healing process, and found the forum of Tribalectic the most interesting.
I read all your experiences, comments and see the photo’s. I noticed that the comments are often placed by a small group off active tribe members. I felt inappropriate/unfair to read your posts, comments and see your photo’s and that I didn’t post something. So I signed in, made a profile and here is my story.
I got my PA on July 3rd. Its my only genital piercing. I got both my nipples done the same time. The piercer asked if I wanted to go straight to and 8 gauge and since I'm looking to get up to a 4 eventually, I said go for it. I had the nipples done first so they were a little tender while my dick was getting done and helped distract. I didn't have any sort of numbing agent, just old fashioned getting pricked in the prick. The actual piercing didn't hurt at all, I barely felt it. However when it was stretched up to the 8g from the 16g it was pierced with, I felt that.
A week ago I decided to take the plunge and get a PA. It looks like the piercing went through my frenulum but off to the side, however, and I think it's slowly tearing its way through. The frenulum area has been on fire since the piercing and the slightest movement of the ring against my clothing varies from uncomfortable to outright painful.
I hit my 2 week mark of my PA yesterday and all is good. I had changed from a BCR to barbell because of irritation and it being too tight but the barbell at 19mm was still a little too short. I asked advice and opted for a circular barbell. Ordered the same gauge (10ga) however when it arrived they'd delivered an 8. Well what do you know but it slipped in and I am so happy with it. Looks much better, happier with the gauge size and overall much more pleased with it! Happy to be part of the tribe. Pictures to follow!
Hey Tribe, just sharing an undershot my 2ga. I’ve had it for a few months now. The horseshoe is really starting to feel at home now. I gave up on wearing undies and go commando most of the time now just so it has room, otherwise its boxers when needed. I’m seriously thinking about making the jump to a 0ga here soon!
So I had been thinking about this for a while and really enjoyed reading the experiences section of Tribalectic's website. May of these posts helped me decide to go forward. I originally intended to just pay a visit to the piercing shop to get information. After talking with Evan, I decided that there was no time like the present. The shop was very careful to explain how they sterilized everything used as part of the process.
