After having the 2Ga. ring for 6 months it was time to go bigger so I ordered a 0Ga. CBR I tried several times over the course of 6 weeks to install it and all I got was pain and there was no way it was going in. I decided to get a 0Ga. curved taper to help out and planned on leaving that in for a day to help get things loosened up, to my surprise when I put the taper in it fell right out the other side! So back in with the taper and followed it with the CBR and no pain or problems at all. This is the first time I had to use a taper on my PA.
This is as good on the giving end as it is on the receiving end. The maker calls it a dragonfly. Two gauge 5/8ths curved barbell. The donut holding the ticklers is 7/16ths, and permanently attached to the bar to keep the ticklers oriented. Ticklers spread 2.5 inches. Found it on an auction site. It's from England. A variety of sizes and colors are available. I went with hot pink. Should it ever be seen publicly I wanted it to scream, "Look at me!" Otherwise, most of the time it is out of sight and color isn't important.
Just got the last of 5 piercings:
12/26/13: PA: Curved bar with a big ball on it (a ring doesn't work with foreskin) and second lorum way down into my scrotal skin. The PA was the piercing that I always thought was the hottest and I wanted the most but I didn't think I was a good candidate due to my foreskin; also, I didn't want to have to sit down to pee. The curved bar turned out to be the answer; no friction against my foreskin and when I urinate, it just runs off the ball into a stream....so I needn't have worried. Also, I think it will be more comfortable for a partner.
I got my PA several years ago. I hadn't researched it on-line, and all I knew about PAs I'd learned reading Modern Primitives. The shop where I was tattooed does piercings, so I asked them about doing a PA. The gal I talked to seemed really put off by the idea of doing a PA. She said they only pierced women. However, she suggested an affiliated shop about an hour's drive away that did pierce men.
I called them and arranged to be pierced, and a few days later made the drive.
About 3 months ago I realized I hadn't really gotten any significant body mods in quite awhile. In fact it had been about 3 years since my last, which happened to have been a tattoo, and almost 5 years since since my last piercing (2 ear cartilage piercings I retired after about a year). I figured it was about time to do something, so I talked to one of my buddies who had recently put his 0 ga plugs back in. After a quick talk I decided that I would take the plunge
and start stretching my ears that day.
Should have done it sooner... Thanks to all the posts here in the community I finally took the plunge, it has been a long time coming. Been interested since I was a teenager and here I am 39 years old, the proud new owner of my 8g Horseshoe Barbell PA.
The idea gained traction when I mentioned it to my wife and she was completely on board. We went looking for a shop in the Virginia Beach area Saturday 21 December. Slim pickings. One shop only wanted to pierce at 14 gauge. After having read here about 10 stretch to 8 that wasn't going to fly. Another shop was creepy.
I've been obsessed with idea to have a PA since I was 17 years old. I remember, I saw some porn video and there was a guy who had a one. I was like:" that's so hot! I better take one too! lol Now I'm 23 years old and I finally did it!
It's been a 3 weeks ago now and I'm very happy I did it.
I found one tattoo studio in my city. There was one cool guy, he was cool but didn't talk too much. He was so calm and cool like it should be nothing! He said it will be sensitive for few days and no need to use salt soaks. He said urine will clean it by itself.
I have been looking for ways to spice up the sex life with the wife and amongst the many things I thought would excite things was to surprise my wife with this piercing. Initially, she was shocked with my idea, but she was very excited by it.
Fast forward to Christmas Eve, I spent several days searching the local Rochester area and was completely surprised by how many piercing parlors do not do this piercing. After finding one that actually had done my ear piercing several years prior.
I met at the shop and I was the only person there, which was great!
After months of reading about others experience with this piercing, I finally had mine done. As I write this , it has been about 5 hours since I had it done. My piercer is a 2 hour drive for me one way so I decided to drive down and get them to actually look and tell me if this piercing could be done on me. I have a lot of veins in the area of the piercing and was worried that this would be a problem. All looked normal and I was told that it would be no problem. So I said "let's do it". I laid down on the table, he marked the spot. Easy, so far.
So about a week ago I finally decided that my desire to get a PA outweighed my shy disposition. I found a local piercer that had about 15 years of experience and all necessary health and safety certificates and I decided to drop by after school on the last day before the holiday break.
When I got there the guy was brief but informative in explaining the oncoming procedure. I told him I was quite nervous since this was my first piercing. He told me he understood perfectly and that helped me calm down a bit.
