I've had a Prince Albert for over 20 years. I started with a 12 gauge piercing and stretched it to a six gauge on my own simply by slowly increasing the size ring that I wore. I wanted to jump from a six gauge to a 2 gauge so that I could fit a padlock through it.
I went to the original Gauntlet in Hollywood to have Jim Ward (A father of body piercing) I sat in a barbers chair while he prepared the stretching taper and new jewelry. I wasn't at all nervous because I didn't think it would be painful.
Jim lubricated the taper and pushed it part way through the piercing.
I got pierced with the PA in November 2013 at 8ga and by March 2014 had moved up to a 4ga curved barbell. But that was too fast and the piercing was extremely uncomfortable, especially at night, and so I took it out. In May I had the PA repierced at 10ga, this time with no discomfort. Within a few weeks I was able to reinsert the 8ga barbell by myself with no problems. By July I was able to reinsert the 6ga curved barbell. Here's a pic of my new circular 6ga barbell with 7/16" beads. It's a very different sensation from the curved barbell, but so far all is A-OK.
I posted on here previously about the awful experience I had when I had my 3.2mm PA stretched to a 4mm at a studio. The pain was hideous. My little guy swelled up to 3 times it's usual size from the shock and my foreskin was all puffy and full of fluid for 3 days.
I have since read on here that the stretch should be painfree when done gently and over time.
So for the past week I have been playing with the ring, gently but firmly pulling on it and twisting it side to side.
Last night I tried my 5mm taper lubed with some Vitamin E oil and with a gentle push it slipped straight through.
The first time I have saw a penis piercing it kind of freaked me out, after lurking on this site for the past 8 month's I knew it was erotic and sexy I had to get one. So yesterday on Friday, I pretty much finished school early and said to my self, *F*ck* it why not go get it done.
While I was on my way to the studio I was pretty excited but nervous at the same time. After 20 minutes travelling on the tram I was finally there.
I was greeted by a polite staff which made thing's a bit more comfortable for me.
So I am 6 weeks out from getting my 8g CBB piercing. I love the thing but i have been dying to use it with someone other than myself. Well, finally the time came and I thought that I was healed enough since masterbating has been fine thus far. Anyway, I had a guy over and we were gonna have sex. He knew about the PA and I told him that this would be my first time having sex and if things hurt ill have to stop. Just wanted to give him a disclaimer. When I attempted to put it inside him I knew right away that it wasn't going to happen. I was so disappointed.
For some strange reason I have been infatuated with PA's and I know I want one, however I have a few questions first. Who receives the pleasure from PA's? Is it just the person who's being penetrated? Does it increase masturbation? I just want someone to shine some light on this for me. Thanks you guys.
It's now 12 weeks since I got my PA. Got pierced with a 4mm (6 ga) bcr. All healed now and feels great. 2 weeks ago I upsized from 4mm to 5mm bcr and it went in easily, just a gentle push, no pain at all. I changed to 5mm curved barbell 2 days ago, feels very comfortable but even with the larger ball it still tries to go into the urethra which is a bit uncomfortable when it happens. Have mixed feeling about the barbell, might change back to bcr soon. Piercing appears to be stretching again already and looking forward to going up to 6mm. Will update my pic asap.
Background: I am uncircumcised and I have had two genital piercing so far. I had an Apadravya that didn’t heal on the top due to my foreskin pushing on it. Six months ago, I got a 8G PA but it developed scar tissue and didn't heal. It was placed poorly, off center, and below the triangle. I was sad to see it go despite living with the pain. I enjoyed the PA way more than the Apadravya. So here I was, with a hole on the center of my penis and now scar tissue on the bottom from a failed PA. All I have left is one side on my penis that could be used.
I was pierced midst of March this year by a doctor who is an ER surgeon in Germany with a 3mm titanium ring. In my fourth week we changed the 3mm to a 4mm titanium ring and it went effortless and without pain. The whitish secretion, which I believe is dead mucous tissue didn’t stopped until I was in the eleventh week of my healing process after using a light cortisone cream which the doctor had recommended to use for a few days. Bending the ring to the left or right side stopped to be painful perhaps around the same time.
