Recently on subbie corner, the question was been raised about genital piercings. So, if I may, I would like to enlighten you.
YES! Last year I went ahead and took the plunge. I already have several piercings…Multiple ear, tragus, cartilage and belly button…But this one, well, to be honest, I did not know what bothered me most. The fear of the pain or being looked at so intimately by some strange dude who was NOT my Ob/Gyn.
Now, most of you are already aware that I am inked quite intensively. Trust me, it is a matter of the artwork, not the pain. Otherwise, why bother with Blessed Butt cream? But piercing is another story….
I researched the types of genital piercing quite extensively prior to making the choice of what to do (the Vertical clitoral hood vs. Horizontal clitoral hood).
The VCH is made through the top layer of skin that covers the clit and the bar runs under the skin against the clit. Okay, so if you can imagine something constantly pressing and moving against you. Especially when you drive down bumpy roads…mmmm, get my drift? I wanted sensation, not a fashion show (the HCH is done across the skin and is gorgeous for hanging things, but does little for sensation). There are also labia, vulva and perineal piercings. These are primarily for appearance and don’t really seem to have any sensation purpose.
I chose the VCH.
The dude who did mine reminded me of a guy from duck dynasty with body tatts and the tribal ear plugs. Never judge a book by its cover. He was incredible! Not only did he take his time to talk me off the ledge and keep me from chickening out, but he was so patient with all my questions and concerns. By the time he took me in the back, showing him my pooky was a piece of cake.
I can honestly say the most uncomfortable part of the process was the ‘fitting’. They have to see if your clit qualifies for this particular type of piercing…i.e. If you have enough tissue to hold a barbell. It felt weird when he slipped the little metal rob under the flap of skin and directly against my clit. Not the most pleasant of sensations, but certainly not the worst. I account the majority of my discomfort to nerves.
After the piercing jewelry is sterilized, I got to hop back up on the table. Now, you ask, OMG, Bree! like did you SPREAD for this dude? Nope, not how he did it. He rested across my pelvis and parted my lips with his gloved fingers, slipped that little metal rod back again and told me to take a deep breath. I literally felt a pinch and it was over. Three seconds, tops, to pierce and place the barbell. After that, I felt NOTHING. No pain, minimal bleeding, and instant, uh….sensation. We even went to walk around Old Town and out for dinner right after. NO pain!
It took one week to heal. Needless to say, John was very curious (as was I) about how this new addition would affect our playtime. It took a while to get used to it. It is so easy to forget its there and I remember getting startled when i would touch something hard! LOL! Which brings up a point…
Orgasms. Since the piercing, I have seemed to develop what John calls ‘sexual Tourette’s syndrome.” I am blessed with a very unselfish man who has always made sure that I am a happy girl, but now…OMG. I found, for me, it took a little longer to reach climax partially because of the extreme sensitivity and getting used to having the extra stimulation. Using a vibrator is also a challenge because if one of the metal balls touches it, it makes all sorts of noise, lol. I still find it difficult to use the vibrator directly on the clit due to the over stimulation, but it is absof****ing incredible if the wand is pressed right against the lip area.
And multiples…over and over and over again. Yes, I am a very, VERY happy girl.
Just remember that everyone has different reasons for doing different things, and we all have different tolerances. I can only share my own experience with you. Just be true to yourself and don’t let anyone talk you into doing something you are not comfortable with. It is okay to be yourself.
The scene, just like piercing and tattoos, is not for everyone. Some of us are into the real deal as a full time lifestyle, while others strictly adhere to the excitement of the party interaction and sensuality of play. There is no right or wrong and we all must be careful not to judge or assume. Regarding these types of piercing, I suggest you consider this…
It is just like spanking. If you are only in it to mess around (like foreplay or light party ‘baby’ spanks), test out a non piercing piece before you do the real thing. It can give you an idea of your tolerance and your sensation. For those who are more hardcore (and can handle a real spanking without calling out a safe word after two or three swats), you might be more inclined to do something like this. It is better to take your time and explore than jump into something and regret.
