All About Prince Albert - What You Need to Know About Penis Piercings

Justin Singh

Every man’s best friend is their penis. Your penis is always there when you need them. Because of how sensitive penises are, the idea of piercing them seems scary, unorthodox, and even downright cruel. Why would someone entertain the idea of piercing through their penis with a piece of metal?

Benefits of penis piercing:

Pleasure. Penises are our main source of pleasure as well. If we want to enhance our sexual pleasure, there are a variety of options we go for: ribbed condoms or sex toys, intricate dildos, heating/cooling lubricate, the list goes on. One of the main perks of a penis piercing is that it adds an enhancement option permanently.

Aside from adding a new aesthetic look to your penis, a piercing is sure to add even more benefits. Whether you’re masturbating, giving or receiving oral/anal, a piercing will add extra sensitivity for the giver, and added ridges for the receiver to feel something extra.

Givers will have new sensitivity simulation to movement during masturbation and intercourse. For the receiver, it will stimulate additional nerves that aren’t otherwise hit by the shape of the average penis. A piercing will bring your sex life to the next level.

While the benefits seem amazing for a penis piercing, risks are sure to come. While these risks should not be taken as fact, and it’s important to be aware of the possible outcomes as well to avoid any surprises after piercing. It’s best to discuss risks with your piercer before following through with any action. Most common risks involved are:

  • Increased risk of sexually transmitted infections (STI) from unprotected sex
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Increased risk of injuries during sex
  • Possible infection of the penis from piercing site or from jewelry.

Who is Prince Albert?

Prince Albert is the most common piercing type you will either desire, or encounter. Prince Albert piercings are with a barbell going through hole of the penis (urethra) down through the bottom tip of the head of the penis. Reverse Prince Albert is the same concept, except through the top of the head. If you have foreskin, this piercing can go underneath, however, it can cause discomfort there in your daily life.

Piercing methods and care

There are many things to be cautious about when piercing your genitalia. When choosing a piercer, ensure that it is a reputable, clean and safe shop. The last thing you want is a botched penis. Pain is relative to each person, so if you experience pain more intensely, make sure you have trusted support close by.

After care should be more diligent than other piercings and should be practiced consistently for a minimum of three months. Be prepared to avoid intercourse and masturbation during this time as well. Also, remember to prepare for costs over $100 for piercing, a good portion for desired jewelry, and a tip for your piercer who will perform with the utmost care in a sterile environment. Piercing dicks isn’t easy.

Jewelry types

  • Horseshoe Ring: These rings have removable tips on each end of the horseshoe
  • Circular Ring: A single hoop that has one removable tip
  • Straight Barbell: A straight bar with removable tips on each end.

Whichever you choose, be sure to go with surgical steel to avoid infection, or silicone if you want to avoid stress while travelling. You could also choose gold and platinum, but these have higher chance of infection if you have sensitive skin.

If you ultimately decide to go through with your piercing, do plenty of research on the piercings themselves, and where to find a reputable piercer in the area. Read reviews online and reach out to others who also received the same piercing you’re interested in. It’s also great to speak with a doctor or healthcare provider if you’re unsure of how your body/penis may react to a piercing.
