Update on the Prince Albert Piercing (2 months)

It’s been 2 months now since the Prince Albert (PA) piercing.  Wanted to offer a quick update and information about what we’ve learned.

First, it’s great.  That’s it.  You can stop reading here if you’d like.  But know that I really like it and how it’s healed and such.

Second, as my first piercing (and only piercing), I’ve had to learn all the things that anyone with a piercing already knows.

Well that’s weird, it doesn’t hurt to thread something through your body…” (as I’m swapping out the jewelry)

Huh, I had the ring out for 15 minutes.  It didn’t close up!  Yay!

Interesting. It didn’t hurt at all to increase the ring size!

Um, yeah.  Get the right tools.  Slippage with force applied to the wrong sized tool sucks.

…and so forth.  Right now, I’m wearing a 4g ring, I have a 2 on-hand, but don’t want to do anything with it until mid-June at the earliest.  They say that the ring sizes go up more than linearly as they get larger.  I can tell you, when I first saw the 2g, I laughed.  There’s no way… But I thought the same of the 4.  It’s just a matter of letting your body decide.  When it’s ready, it’s clear.  If this is something you’re doing, don’t push it.  Everything I’ve read, everyone I spoken with says that the issues come from moving too quickly.  Don’t push it.

@dualdrew (blog | twitter) pointed out that @thumpermn (blog | twitter) mentioned (how’s that for name-dropping?) that some sizes are more conducive to chastity devices.  While it’ll depend on the device you’re wearing, make sure you take that into account as you decide where you want to be size-wise.

A lot of people have written asking about the sex side of things.  Great question!

Yes, there is a difference,  One thing I’ve noticed is that if you’re a fan of edging (or subjected to it if not), you’ll have to relearn the stopping point.  I say this because normally you stop and that’s it – there isn’t any more stimulation to go over the proverbial cliff.  BUT, with a PA ring in (I don’t know about barbells/etc.), it will continue to wiggle around a bit as you move around.  That stimulation, especially given where it is and how intense it can be right at that moment, can be enough to push you right over that edge.  It’s fun to play with that line a bit, but be aware that it may change things for you.

Also true of endurance, but I’ve not seen this impacted particularly.  I don’t say that “bragging.”  I’ve talked with people that have had it impact endurance (like being able to hold off orgasm) and others that have not had it impact it.  Just know that you get to re-learn and play with that to see how it impacts your own.  Personally, it’s been more of an intensity boost type of thing.  All upside.

Charmer certainly seems to like the ring as well.  She’s noticed a difference both in teasing (she loves to fiddle with it, which I just can’t object to at all of course) and has said she likes the feeling of it as well.  So it’s a win-win in all areas of teasing/play-time.

I will say that, with the recent challenge issued by Charmer, I had to resort to removing the ring.  Just too much “handling” and later in the game it helped to remove it.  But it’s a simple thing to do so.

One final bit – finding jewelry that you like, that’s of good quality, can be challenging.  We’re going to post some reviews here and and let you know what retailers we have had experience with to present some new ideas perhaps as you seek out your own.
