Prince Albert Piercing

One thing I get asked about most often is my Prince Albert piercing. The Prince Albert, also commonly called the PA, is a piercing which goes through the underside of the glans, or head, of the penis, just a little ways back from the tip. Typically right around where your frenulum is located. That's the little band of tissue that's left over from when your foreskin was involuntarily yanked from your penis when you were a wee tot. It then comes out through the urethra.

Now, of course, the average Joe on the street doesn't know I have this piercing, so I usually get asked this shortly after I've either sent photos of my junk to a prospective hookup, or someone with whom I'm simply trading pictures, or when dropping my pants and about to get busy with someone. There are generally only a few different reactions that I'll get: Intrigued and inquisitive, or indifferent, which is rare, or they'll be repulsed. 

The intrigued and inquisitive are the most fun, but they do all tend to ask the same questions, so I'll try and answer those here:

  1. Did it hurt? No, not really. Before getting it done, I watched a lot of YouTube videos of guys getting it done. Sadly, few, if any, showed the actual procedure. They only showed the reactions of the guys getting it done. And it seems that their grimacing and freaking out was mostly due to the receiving rod; not the piercing, itself. When doing the piercing, the piercer will place a receiving tube in your urethra and line it up with the mark he or she has made on the underside of your penis. This will make it easier to pierce and it will guide the needle safely out the urethra without damaging other parts of the penis. That poking takes only a second. You barely feel it. I actually had to ask if it was done. The guys in the video were whining because they must have tiny urethras and the tube was uncomfortable for them, or something. Now, what did hurt, was when he put the jewelry in because it pinched a bit. Also, I didn't exactly take the best of care of it afterward, so it kind of hurt for the week after getting it done. 
  2. Do you fuck with it in? Most of the time, yes, I do. I rarely take it out when fucking because there's no need to. It's not rigid at all. It flops around and has no sharp edges whatsoever. It can be pushed into my urethra or flop off to the side during insertion, but it's never really caused any problems. However, when receiving head I sometimes have to take it out, depending on the guy, and depending on what angle they are coming at me from. Some guys want me to leave it in for the challenge of it. Others don't care. Some want it out because it makes them gag more (I'm not a fan of gagging). Sometimes it will clack against their teeth. When I hear that, I will usually insist on taking it out because it can chip someone's teeth.
  3. Does it feel good for the bottom? That's hard to say. Here's my best guess... I think some guys like the idea of it a whole lot, and that turns them on. I doubt they can specifically feel it to the point of identifying it. However, when fucking a guy and he's on his hands and knees, the PA will rub directly on his prostate. In that case, though I doubt he could specifically identify the piercing, it likely feels good. If we are fucking face-to-face, however, it's probably not noticeable and is more of a turn on in its novelty. 
  4. Can you wear condoms? Yup. As I said before, it has all rounded edges so there's really very little risk of it breaking a condom. Typically, when using a condom, I'll put a tiny amount of lube on the head of my penis and the PA before putting the condom on, to allow for some movement inside and just as an added precaution against tears due to friction. I've only had one condom break, and that may or may not have anything to do with the jewelry. Condoms sometimes break. 
  5. Why did you get it done? I'm not really sure. The idea of it appealed to me. I wanted to see what it felt like and thought they looked interesting. I also thought it would give my cock a novel appeal, which it has. I haven't regretted getting it at all. 
  6. How do you pee? There are tricks to peeing when you have a PA. You can just sit to piss, which is a nuisance, I think. You can also twist your flaccid penis so that the bottom of it is facing up, and you're looking at the underside. This helps keep the urine from running along the ring and dribbling onto your shoes and pants. With my particular jewelry, which is a circular barbell, I can grab the ball end of it that is on the back end, which comes out behind the head, and pull it until the rest of the ring slides into my urethra and the ball on the other end acts like a stopper for the piercing hole. I then twist the ring off to the side and out of the way, and piss like normal. Then just put it back when done. 
  7. How does it feel for you? When I first got it, I think it helped me to orgasm when having sex with a guy. Before that I had a hard time cumming when fucking a guy, or getting head. The ring stimulates nerves inside the urethra, which otherwise would never be stimulated. So it's a new sensation. I think you kind of get used to it after a while though. However, I don't seem to have the problem with cummng any more. Whether that's attributable to the piercing or not, I don't know. 
  8. Do you have to be erect when the piercing is done? No. The piercing is done while your penis is flaccid. The piercer may stretch your penis to try to guess how much to accommodate for the erect state of the penis, but, no, you stay flaccid during it. I suspect that getting it done while erect would be more painful and result in more bleeding.

That is pretty much what I get asked almost every time. I don't really mind it at all, though. I knew when I got it that it would raise questions. 

The repulsed guys, now, they are annoying. They are usually unreasonable, but not always. I've encountered a few guys who, upon seeing the piercing are done talking to me completely. It doesn't matter if I tell them that I can take the ring out and you won't even know that it was ever there. All that matters is that they know that it was there, and they are done talking to you. They're gone. All you can do is shake your head at them. It's like they think you've ruined your penis. They have no idea that when I take the ring out, you can't see the hole it went through. The skin from the frenulum covers it up. 

The indifferent guys are, well, they're indifferent. They're rare though. These are usually guys who have been with a pierced guy before and don't really give a damn. There really isn't a lot to say about them. But if I had a choice between the repulsed guys and the indifferent guys, I'd rather have an indifferent guy.
