I have to start by saying I've wanted a Prince Albert for over ten years now. As to why I never got it done, I really couldn't say. I had reservations due to the potential urination problems and the the need for asymmetric placement with being uncircumcised, but in reality those concerns were pretty minor.
I have been reading this site for the past few weeks. All the the info in here made my decision easier for me. So today I was in Toronto and decided to pop in to exotix studios. I had Six do the piercing and we decided on a 6 g circular barbell. After everything I read on here I was expecting the receiving tube to be uncomfortable but it wasn't bad at all. The piercing itself was a quick pinch and that was it. I'm not sure if it's because I got a larger size for the initial piercing but I haven't had a drop.of blood and it had felt great ever since.
Happy Anniversary to me!
On September 17th I will celebrate the one year anniversary of my PA piercing.
I was pierced with a 10g captive bead ring. About 10 months later I went to an 8g cbr. And I loved my rings; the way they looked, the way they felt. They gave me room to heal and adjust to my piercing.
But in celebration of my anniversary, I returned to my piercer Walt (whom I have truly learned to admire and appreciate over this past year) and gave myself some new jewelry.
First let me thank everyone for their post. The experiences on here helped out alto. I first was intrigued by the piercing over a year and a half ago. I have gone back and forth weather to get one or not. The idea of having someone place a hole in my penis didn’t seem very pleasing.
During my last trip out of town the wife called my out on it. While still out of town did the necessary planning.
I have finally stretched to 10mm and have just purchased 12mm I think that is my limit. I have tattooed my shaft and balls added four pearls under foreskin and also tattooed under foreskin. I have pierced foreskin 4 times and also frenum and my balls. I sure get some amazing looks at the gym some guys actually trip over as they are too busy staring at my .
After 7 years of thinking about it I finally got my PA today (September 6th 2014) at Cold Steel America in San Francisco, CA. My piercer was Mic and he was absolutely great. Piercing: $30 + Jewelry $45 + $10 tip + tax = $90. The staff were super friendly and available, and were willing to answer any and all questions I had.
This entry is a bit lengthy, but I want to be very thorough. I hope it helps anybody in making their decision to get (or not to get) this piercing.
Because I'd thought about this for 7 years, I definitely was well informed on most aspects of the procedure.
***I moved this over from my blog because it seems to be going unseen. Apologies in advance for any badness in that move ***
So, I'm eight days since I had my PA done and I am so happy that I swallowed my reticence and had it done. The potential pain wasn't so much the thing that held me back, I manage pain very well, it was the thought of changing my penis and the worry that it might cost me lovers. Now I'm all 'I love my pierced penis and anyone who can't cope with it isn't someone I want to take as a lover'.
I've been thinking about getting a PA for several months now. I talked to the piercer a few days ago and he mentioned something I haven't read about at all. He said that due to the tissue most PA's will stretch and you pretty much have to gauge them up as time goes on. I was planning on getting a 10g and possibly moving up to an 8g but wouldn't want to increase it any more. Has anybody out there experienced this that has had their PA for some time? He also mentioned since the urethra is stretching the ball on the CBB can go back into the urethra and be quite painful during sex.
Hey all how we all doing?
So it's been roughly two months into having my PA and just thought I'd share my experience now I'm healed up and had some time to digest the experience.
1. Get it done for you!
Coming into this ride I wasn't sure why I wanted it done and to be fair I still don't. All I can say is its here to stay! My GF had massive reservations and despite this went along with it even though she'd had bad experiences with sex with them and generally despises them. We tried sex several times.... and.... it did nothing for either of us.
I've wanted a PA for years and, honestly, thanks to this site today I bit the bullet and did it.
I went to a very well-recommended place here in RI and I have to say that I've had dermatologist visits that were less professional. They were clean, friendly...overall the place was awesome. Full explanation of aftercare, why I got a 'bigger one than some I might have seen', when I can upsize if I want (and I do, at some point), the whole deal. Started with an 8 gauge titanium. Very brief pain which I would not rate as having deterred me much from the whole experience.
