Hi y'all, so I got my PA done with a 3.4mm straight off this Saturday just gone (not sure what the 'gauge' is in American terms)! Went to a highly reputable piercer in Manchester uk and couldn't be happier with the service! The piercing was quick clean and if not just a wee bit uncomfortable ive have many which have hurt a lot more! Now... The first piss I was going to take scared me to death but it wasn't actually bad! There's many stories out there but all in all I've found it not so bad so far... It's a daunting experience and one you constantly keep on your mind.
I've had the 0Ga x 3/4" Screwball Ring on hand for several weeks. Clearly an intimidating dimensional jump from the 2ga x 3/4" Circ Barbell I was wearing. I located a 1ga x 7/8" Screwball Ring (seems that SBR is my final choice) and ordered it, plus a 0ga. taper. Both arrived this morning. I sanitized everything and removed the 2 ga. ring, put a dab of my favorite stretching lube in the fistula and on the jewelry and got started. As expected, the 0 ga taper stopped at mid-point, but the 1 ga. ring slipped into place with no resistance at all. Wow! That looks and feels just GREAT!

I've been having some complications after the installation of my 0g titanium circular barbell. The stretch from 2g was done just over two weeks ago. The taper was pushed through in one swift motion, and I definitely felt the pressure and some pain. After the endorphins wore off, I walked home pretty pain free, but since then, the piercing has been a little sensitive, and I'm worried I'm back at stage one in the healing process, or worse.. a blowout.
So I have found PAs super sexy ever since I first saw one in porn. Where I come from there's not much of a piercing culture. So I waited until I was on vacation in San Francisco to get it done. That was 12 days ago. A very nice girl took care of me, she looked at my penis and told me that because I'm uncut I couldn't get a ring as I wanted. Instead I got a curved barbell, with the bead outside my urethra being a little bigger than the other one. She gave me a 10 gauge barbell because she was afraid otherwise scarring could produce phimosis. It made sense right then.
Finally went bigger after 9 weeks of waiting. 8 Gauge after with weighted balls.
I've been patiently waiting for the jewelry I ordered through my piercer to arrive. Waited 5 weeks for it to arrive. He texted me this morning and I was in his shop within an hour!
I have to say that I'm glad I took everyone's advice to wait a full 8 weeks because it did hurt a little having the new metal inserted, but just a little. And had a drop of blood on my briefs upon returning home.
But man o' man, I'm totally stoked at the look and feel of a bigger ring.
To those of us who may not have found this yet, go into the Store catalog and shop for PA jewelry, choose whatever sze interests you, and somewhere on the page wll be a link to size measurement. This calls up the best chart in the industry. Print a copy of it, and this will be the most useful item to refer to when planning and shopping for jewelry. My printer produced images almost perfectly 1:1 scale, and it is most helpful in visualizing the actual presence of various choices for your own anatomy.
