WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT GENITAL PIERCING, BEFORE YOU GET ONE!

genital-piercing

Recently we talked about nipple piercings, but now we want to go further… Genital piercings! These type of piercings have become an alternative for those who want to experience the pleasure of sex through new stimuli, being a very popular option among piercing enthusiasts. But beyond aesthetics or enjoyment, there are some elements that should be taken into account before getting this type of piercing either in the vagina or penis, to ensure health and prevent any discomfort or problem. Let ‘s go! 😉

Genital piercings: How are they done?

Genital piercings are all those piercings that are made in both male and female sexual organs. In the case of male genital piercings, these are commonly done on the penis, on the upper part or on the scrotum. In the case of female genitalia, piercings are usually done on the vulva, on the outer and inner labia and clitoris.

Genital piercings are a way of beautifying the body. A hole is made using a needle and a piece of jewelry is attached to the genitals by passing it through the hole.

Obviously, as all piercings, genital piercings should always be done by a licensed professional. To perform the piercing, the practitioner will first clean the genital skin and then mark the piercing site. The professional should only use sterile, unopened surgical material and sterile jewelry.

With a piece of jewelry attached to the needle, the practitioner will insert it into the genital skin. After the procedure is completed, the practitioner will give you some instructions for the care of your genital piercing, that you will have to follow (please 😉). 

It’s important to take into account that it’s an area with thousands of nerve endings and it’s especially sensitive. This means that the pain will be greater, regardless of whether you endure more or less pain, these are the ones that really hurt. In addition, after the procedure the area is especially sensitive, it’s usually covered and in contact with body fluids such as sweat or urine, which can be a breeding ground for infections of all kinds. You will definitely have to take many precautions to avoid an infection that will be painful, slow and dangerous.

The dangers of genital piercing

Infection is the most likely outcome of a male or female genital piercing. The only way to avoid it, is to maintain perfect hygiene, always keeping the area clean and avoiding any kind of sexual intercourse for several weeks. The area must be completely healed before engaging in any type of intercourse that involves stimulation of the area. For cleaning and disinfection of the area the best will be a neutral soap for intimate use to be applied up to 2 or 3 times a day.

It’s also advisable to avoid certain activities that involve contact or pressure on the area, such as cycling, horseback riding, contact sports… Any activity that may endanger the area or may generate a blow. Trust us, the last thing you want is a genital infection 😉.

Also keep in mind that piercing certain areas can be an open way for the most common bacterial infections to enter your body as well.  Recovery time after genital piercing ranges from several weeks to months, so keep this in mind before you perform any piercing in this area. If you think you won’t be able to comply with all the care we have discussed for months better opt for another type of piercing! 

Tips and recommendations for genital piercings

It’s important to understand that a genital piercing isn’t the same as an ear or navel piercing. Because it’s a delicate area, constantly exposed to friction and fluids, it’s very important that we increase precautions when performing this type of piercing in order to avoid infections, allergic reactions, major genital discomfort or malpractice that may affect any of the nerves that are in the area of the piercing.

So,  the first thing you should keep in mind when getting a genital piercing is that you are choosing a specialized place for it, and that the piercer who will do it has extensive experience in genital piercing, thus guaranteeing the success of the work. Never put yourself in the hands of someone without proven experience.

It’s very important that before getting a genital piercing you make sure that you are vaccinated against tetanus, in case the answer is negative you should do it! If you were vaccinated more than 10 years ago, a booster is recommended.

In general, when performing any type of piercing, you should go to a licensed place that complies with all hygiene measures, but in the case of genital piercing this is essential, because if the instruments are reused or aren’t well sterilized, you can run the risk of contracting serious intimate infections and sexually transmitted diseases.

Genital piercings should never be performed with guns, as these types of devices are difficult to sterilize properly, so do not take any risks and make sure that:

  • All the material with which the professional is going to perform your genital piercing has been previously sterilized. Usually the professional does this procedure in front of the client to ensure their safety.
  • The piercer works with disposable needles that are perfectly sealed and that are opened in your presence. You can require the professional to show you all the accessories he will use to pierce and make sure that the needle is new and that everything is in perfect condition.
  • You should never allow yourself to be pierced with a material that has not been opened and/or sterilized in your presence.

Before getting a genital piercing it’s very important that both the piercer and any other person involved in the process wash their hands thoroughly and wear new surgical gloves that have been opened in your presence. This prevents the spread of bacteria during the procedure. Never allow a genital piercing to be performed without the professional wearing gloves. If you are allergic to latex, it’s important that you bring surgical gloves in another material to offer to the practitioner, as only latex gloves are likely to be available.

The genital piercing you choose should preferably be made of surgical titanium, stainless steel or platinum, so you will avoid infections and allergic reactions.

By following these recommendations you guarantee your health and reduce the risks associated with genital piercings!  😉
