Here's what it's REALLY like...

So you've decided to pierce your vagina. Your clit, to be more precise. 

Now that I've recovered from my swoon of shock and sympathetic vagina pain, allow me to help.

Before you step into a just any ol' piercing place, there are some important things for you to consider.

That was a test. Never get your genitals pierced by just anyone. Always, always, always, always find a reputable vagina piercing artist. 

If you don't know where to start, ask your friends. Sites like Yelp can also be a great resource. 

However you hunt for your piercing soulmate, make sure you do your homework. You want an experienced professional who is certified and clean as a whistle. 

What type of clitoris piercing is best for you? 

It's time to decide what exactly you want. Sure, you could walk into a piercing parlor and just ask for a genital piercing. But be warned, there are several types and they all have different benefits. 

There are four basic kinds of genital piercings for women and not all of them involve in the clitoris, although the most popular do. 

It's worth noting that you can combine these four if you want several piercings at once in your labia and clitoris.

Benefits of each of the different types

If you don't know what kind of piercing you want, ask yourself what you hope to gain from the jewelry. 

If you're looking for increased sensation during sex:  

  • The clitoral hood piercing is the most popular and known for improving your chances at a clitoral orgasm. 
     
  • The Christina piercing is also popular for increased sensation, but it's not ideal as a first time piercing due to the pain. 
     
  • All of these piercings are painful and require recovery time, but the Christina hurts the most. 

(Interestingly, the inner labia and hood piercings are recommended as easier for first timers in terms of both pain and healing time.) 

Fun fact: You don't need to worry about shaving your pubic hair before going into the parlour. 

If Brazilian waxing is your preference, that's fine too, but just know that hair won't hinder the piercing or healing process. 

Speaking of the healing process: take it seriously.

Try not to shave, groom, masturbate or have sex while you're healing and in recovery. Follow the instructions provided by your piercer so you do not end up with an infection.

So what have we learned? Do your homework, avoid Rusty the back ally piercer, and give yourself time to heal. 

Good luck!
