I’m only able to share on this topic because of the anonymity of internet postings. Believe me, this is not something that I go around sharing with the general population. If you don’t want to read about something sexual, feel free to click away now, because this post is dealing with a “naughty” piercing.
In a recent post on Lovelyish, a blogger expressed her distaste for piercings, most of them pretty vanilla. This post is NOT a response to her, as I feel that everyone has the right to their opinions on attractiveness, and those of us with non-standard body modifications shouldn’t be upset when others don’t like them. That’s not why we get them. However, in my comment I mentioned that I had a few piercings, one of them a vertical clitoral hood piercing, and I was asked to write about it.
A little background is key here: Politically, I’m a libertarian, and many would call me extremely conservative. I am intensely private in real life. I’m married to a former soldier. I’m 25, and I got the piercing when I was 23, about 15 months ago. I’m a normal married girl, I don’t party hard, I don’t cheat, I’m not anything like you would expect for a person who would get her stuff pierced. I work in a construction company’s office, I’m close with my family, everything’s very normal.
I got it purely for myself and my husband. It wasn’t a fetish or anything he ever brought up or asked me to do. I heard about it from a couple of friends that had it and was intrigued. I did some research online and toyed with the possibility, and asked Mr. B if he would be into it. He researched it. LOTS of research, in fact. When I finally decided to do it, I did even more research to find a piercer in Germany, which is where we were living. I should mention the fact that he was in Iraq, on his second tour at this time and I had several months to heal before he came back.
That day, a close friend of mine drove me to the piercer, who was very professional and highly recommended for these types of piercings. She charged about 100 euro, I think, and I tipped her liberally. I don’t think I would have been comfortable having a man do it, by the way. But then, I also prefer a female gynecologist. I was, of course, extremely nervous, and asked her to first check if I had enough flesh to even get the piercing- some women don’t, but I was all good. The ring is tiny. It was, unquestionably, the piercing that hurt the least. I don’t have a lot, but my belly button, earlobes, and cartilage were far more painful. In fact, I felt nothing more than a slight pinch when it happened. It didn’t hurt at all. Well, not right then.
On the way home and for the rest of the day, I got a slight soreness between my legs. Very, very slight. It healed in one week – I’m not joking! I kept it clean using the Very Private intimate body wash. I was really careful with that sucker, of course, it would be awful if it were messed up. Anyway, the healing process went smoothly and I waited eagerly for my husband to get home. And on that note, I can say that I recommend it.
And now, what’s it like just day to day? Well, I don’t keep it in all the time. Sometimes I start feeling over-sensitive, and then I take it out for a week or two and put it back in- no big deal. Of course, I still make sure to keep everything very clean, but really, everyone should be doing that anyway. And yes, it still “works”. And since the tissue is so soft, if I decide to take it out permanently one day, I won’t have a gaping hole or anything- when it’s out, you couldn’t tell I’m pierced.
So yes, I recommend this piercing. It’s the only one I have that serves a real purpose. It’s an intimate thing that my husband and I enjoy. I don’t tell anyone- in real life- that I have it. If it’s something you’re interested in, be sure to do your research and find a piercer who is experienced and highly recommended for this type of piercing. And be sure to specify what it is you want- the hood is very different from the clitoris itself, which most piercers won’t do.
Would you ever get a piercing below the belt, so to speak?
