Had a PA several years go but let it go. Just had another one - 8 guage. Enjoying the feel again, Have to get thru the healing process again. I am in my 60's but it is never too late to get piereced!
Like most ppl here, I've been reading for ages before i finally made up my mind and do this:)
Completed 2 weeks ago and healing process has been normal like others explained. keeping clean and salt water bath is key. I was originally pierced at 10ga and stretched to 8ga right away. the pain was ok to bear.
I'm uncut and my urethra opening is quite low. upon discussion with my piercer explaining that I may want to stretch in future, i was then pierced quite low into the shaft (can see in the pic). now i think it might be a bit too low? is it an issue? what you guys think?
I finally decided to get the PA after about 3 years of consideration. This site was greatly helpful with all the posts and information, thanks to all who came before me.
I came back from a long weekend and decided there would be no better end to my vacation than to get some metal in my junk. Got right in to a local reputable shop and had a great piercer who talked me through everything. The receiving tube, no problem. The needle, not too bad. I wanted a 10 gauge needle with a 8 gauge CBB, so in fact the most uncomfortable part was the stretching of the larger jewelry.
So the last 8.5 weeks after my initial piercing could not have been smoother healing-wise. I'm so glad I decided to start at 6ga and not something smaller. Great thickness to the jewelry from the beginning, and much less stretching and jewelry to buy if you want to size up! For anyone debating what size to start with, I doubt there would be any noticeable difference in pain, so check with your piercer if 6ga is an option!
So anyway, 8 weeks flew by and my PA was doing great.
Thanks to all the support from The Tribe, I finally got mine done on 17 Oct. by "Gus" at "In The Skin" studio in Victoria , TX. Absolutely 5-star, top-drawer all the way. Beautiful clinic, nice location, and super-nice staff. Best 15 minutes I've invested in my lifetime! Hurt like a blood donation or an IV insertion and bled maybe 2 tablespoons over the following 6 hours. (I've had a zipper-burn that hurt worse and bled far longer) Total comfort after 72 hrs. My choice was an 8ga 5/8" circular barbell with 5/16 beads, included in the $50 service fee.

So I finally got the PA piercing and I do like it, I bled a bit for the 1st two days but now, today, on the 3rd day it hasn't been bleeding. I have been washing, cleaning and soaking like I'm suppose to but I do think the piercing may be small. I really feel like it might be stretching my "hole". I was told to wait two weeks then come back and they change it out. Also I need comments about the lower hole, where the ring was inserted.
First, thank you, thank you, thank you for your help and guidance on this exciting journey! I posted on here originally back in July inquiring about PAs, underwear and masturbating.
On Tuesday, October 7th I finally did it. I couldn't stand watching all of the PA masturbation videos onling and felt "left out" on a great secret.
Here's how I prepped that I think helped(?):
1. I went to the gym beforehand and ran my ass off, got the heart rate WAY up, burned off energy and I think that helped with my anxiety about the piercing process.
Today I took delivery of a titanium screw ball PA 2G ...
The Community spirit in these pages are a huge source of advice and encouragement to anyone thinking about piercing or stretching.
I don't know where I'll stop: probably at 2G for a while- but already the big 0 G beckons … LOL
Thanks to everyone for posting here! We make a great family.
Ill try and keep this short but detailed
This is my first piercing, my wife has several piercings/tattoos and has been wanting me to get something. When she was looking to get another piercing i said nipples to which she responded with you need something first. She looked into male piercings and showed me the PA, i dug it so i said lets do it. Well a year later i still hadn't, until yesterday. I finally did it. Unfortunately my wife and i are "separated" at the moment so she doesn't even know. I had planned on getting it done before that happened and surprising her with it.
After getting my frenum piercing I decided on getting a pa...so far I'm 8 days in.
The recieving tube wasn't bad at all the initial piercing was painfull but actually felt good in a way... ( am I the only one? ) pierced at 12g still a little annoying when hits something so going commando really helps......my goal is to eventually get down to a more comfortable gauge stoll new at this any suggestions?
