After getting into a conversation on the topic of genital piercings about a year ago with a couple of my close friends, I started thinking about a PA. I started out thinking that nobody was going to go near my ... *cough* with a needle. EVER!
Boy was I wrong. This stuff gets in your head and eats away at you doesn't it? Anyway, on April 10th, I finally worked up the courage to do it. I decided to make my first ever piercing a PA. On the recommendation of a friend, I went to a local shop. It seemed clean and the piercer seemed to know what he was talking about.
I have wanted to have a PA piercing done for many years but could not get up the courage to get it done. While visiting a city many miles from home I noticed a tatoo and piercing shop close to where I was staying. I got the urge to get the PA done but had to wait for a few days so was able to do some research and found the Tribalectic website.
I have had a PA for little over a year now. I was pierced at a 12 g and moved to a 10 g about 6 months later. Everything has been great, and I love the look and feel of the PA. My 10 g was a captive bead at 5/8 diameter. I recently decided to move to an 8 g curved barbell at 5/8. The first couple of days were great with no issues. Four days on now I'm starting to experience tenderness at the tip under the bead.
I actually got the piercing done one and a half years ago, and I've never regretted it. I was pirced at a 12g (I guess that's why it wasn't that painful). The only thing I found hard handeling was the receiveing tube, but it isn't that bad.
There was nearly no bleeding and it healed without any problem.
My advice to anyone wanting to get it donde is: go ahead! Don't waste time thinking it over and over again, because it's really worth it.
Today I'm at 4g, and I don't think I'll go any further.
I have just recently gone from 0 guage to 00 guage PA and man what a feeling. I am now almost ready to receive 000 or 7/16. I just started sounding and have ordered a Hagar sounding kit. I tried a home made sound which was almost the same shape as a small sound. The feeling was amazing and with lots of lube it dropped right in. I can't wait to get my kit so I can stretch out my urethra to receive a 1/2" CBR. I am well hung so that little home made sound dropped right in. I can feel it though after retreating it at the tip of my urethra. Is this normal ?
Though I'd share my experience also…..
On the 6th April after some deliberation I finally got my PA done. After taking some advice and ringing a round a little I decide to have it done at Industrial Strength (Newtown, NSW, Aus). The guy that did the piercing put me totally at ease. And as described many times on here a breath in and a long breath out and it was all over.
First Day = lots of weeping and a mild throbbing all the time. Followed by a messy bed in the morning from the blood!! First tip don't use your best white bedding.
I finally decided to to get my PA and was pierced on 2/8/13 to a size of 8GA 3/4". I have been loving my PA and am kicking myself wondering why I didn't get it done when I turned 18. I'm now looking at ordering my first new replacement of a 6GA 5/8". The 3/4" is nice but it just seems to big for my taste. I'm wanting to at least stretch to a 4GA, might even go up to a 2GA but I will just have to wait and see when I get there. Any tips and advise would be greatly appreciated to achieve my goal.
So... I only think its right that I post my experience here too as I got so much fantastic information from this site.
I was well informed with what to expect and have found the information posted invaluable.
Big thank you to everyone before me that shared their stories!
So I’ve wanted a PA for a good number of years now and came close to getting it done about 6 years ago just about the time I met my current partner.
So this past Sunday St. Patricks Day I finally got the courage to get my Prince Albert done!! After chickening out 3 years ago and opting for a vertical Frenum at a 12 gauge, i finally took the plunge and got a * gauge Prince Albert complete with a captive bead ring (CBR)!! initial piercing was not as bad as I expected, the receiving tube is a tad uncomfortable but then you breathe in and breathe out and its done! let out a slight (ah!) did get a bit woozy n lite headed when I saw all the blood but the piercer was very professional and talked to me to ease my nerves.
