Hey all... First post in bloody ages! Here I go...
So after much thought, intrigue and general fascination I got pierced in June 2014. I'll be honest, I loved it but the Mrs not so much. A bad experience way before me had put her off for life. Plenty of arguments and malice later I knew to pop it in inter morning and take it out at night... A simple crotch squeeze and a "you've got that sh*t in your dick" was enough to kill the mood for both of us so a little sacrifice went a long way. She even got used to me wandering naked with it in without issue...
So I decided to try the next size which would be 6g because my 8g felt 'loose' enough. A normal 6g CBB wouldn't fit by what seemed a long shot so I ordered one of the spiral type bent barbell as i knew from a previous ring that they're .2mm smaller. After a long soak and gently using a 6g taper (not all the way) I then tried the spiral type bar. After a little work and not a huge amount of discomfort it went through and that was that. The normal tingling feeling for a couple hours then felt normal that evening.
My first genital piercing was about two-and-a-half years ago, and as many guys do, I went for a Prince Albert. I absolutely loved it, and added a number of other piercings over a period of time, as well as stretching my PA from 2.4mm (10g) up eventually to 8mm (0g).
All went well until late last year, when the PA suffered sudden and extremely painful irritation. I ended up taking the jewellery out for a couple of weeks as a result. I knew, though, that I did not want to give up the piercing completely.
On September 25, I took the plunge and got my PA done. I previously had nipple piercings one of which I had to have redone. They hurt like hell compared to my PA. Its been 4 months and I honestly can't remember the pain. I'm 47 and and was intrigued by this piercing almost 15 years ago but with my nipple experience, I figured the pain would be too intense. After doing a little research and from reading a great deal of posts here, I felt comfortable that the pain would be minimal. I went to a local shop and the worse part was the receiving tube insertion.
So after a ton of research, I finally decided to get my VCH piercing. I found a qualified piercer in San Luis Obispo who is known for his amazing piercing talent. I was super scared about the pain I would experience, so I used some prescription strength numbing cream an hour before the appointment. Once there, he reassured me it was going to be ok and put me right at ease. After checking my anatomy to make sure I was a good candidate, he then cleaned the area and did the markings. Now it was time for the piercing.
Need Benefit of Your Experience
Met with APP artist at most respected studio in Columbia, SC. He did anatomy exam and agreed to do my PA at 8 gauge although he normally does 10 gauge. Said he thought I might have problems with moving up in size due to length of my urethral meatus. Ordered 8 gauge 3/4 inch SSS CBB with arrival expected in around 8 weeks. Will wearing CBB itself expand meatus to accept larger sizes or should I use sounds to expand it while waiting?
Will post pic once piercing done.
Thanks for your help.
Everything about the PA has always intrigued me and turned me on. It has been something I've considered for many years and always thought that one day I might get one. 5 days ago, I finally made that dream a reality. Like my first piercing (guiche) 11 years ago, I made the decision rather spontaneously, but after much consideration and thought. I woke up Wednesday morning and decided that it would be the day. I told my partner earlier in the day that I was going to get the piercing that evening and asked him to come along.
My goal was to obtain a reverse Prince Albert. My thinking was (from a very conservative background and history) it would be relatively moderate and tasteful to have just a single steel ball centered on my glans, supported by a labret projecting from inside the urethra.
Alas, the piercer indicated, if this was the starting arrangement, the inside end of the labret might envelop in scar tissue as the fistula healed. Hence, something else was needed as a beginning arrangement.
I got 2 frenums last year and yesterday I just got 2 more. I don't remember getting bruises last year but I did this time. I know it will heal soon enough. The last year frenums are stretched to an 8 gauge they are the front ones. The back 2 are 10 gauge and in a few months will be stretched to 8 also. I am still thinking about going to a 6 gauge but I am going to wait till I get all healed and all four the same size.
