What is a chastity piercing?
Traditionally, a chastity piercing is any form of piercing that forces chastity. This means that the piercing is intended to prevent sexual intercourse. In some cultures, piercing is imposed on others. In other cultures, some people choose piercing either for themselves or for the sake of style. For women, a common chastity piercing is a ring used to keep the lips closed to prevent penetration.
What are the types of male chastity piercings?
In general, there are three different types of male genital piercings that can be called "chastity piercings":
A frenulum piercing
A piercing window
Each of these piercings can be modified in different ways to encourage chastity.
The foreskin piercing
The closed foreskin piercing is a less common type of genital piercing than the rest. The piercing itself goes through the foreskin and the head of the penis to seal the foreskin.
A frenulum piercing
A frenulum piercing is a piercing that goes through the frenulum of the penis. A common variation, the Prince Albert piercing, goes through the frenulum and into the urethra. A man can have a reverse Prince Albert piercing where the piercing exists through a hole at the top of the glans. The piercing can be modified to prevent sexual intercourse.
A wicket piercing
A wicket piercing is a piercing that goes through the perineum. Common modifications to the tattoo include connecting it to the skin of the scrotum or creating a series of wicket piercings. A common modification to make a Prince Albert piercing more chaste is to connect it to a wicket piercing to prevent an erection.
Problems with chastity piercings
The main problem that arises with a male piercing in the genital area is hygiene. It is very important to keep the area clean and dry. The genital area tends to be a hotbed of moisture and it is important to take care of the piercing to prevent complications.
With piercings that enter the urethra, like the Prince Albert piercing, a common problem can be urinary tract infections. Painful infections, UTIs must be treated with antibiotics quickly before they get worse. However, they can often recur and the piercing may need to be removed.
Tips before getting a male chastity piercing
Make sure the piercer and his space are clean. Check the license and history of your piercer. Ask to see pictures of the work he has done. The area of the body to be pierced is very sensitive and valuable: make sure your piercer does not harm it!
Adopt a genital cleanliness routine even before you get pierced so that cleaning with the piercing becomes second nature.
While many men report that most piercings in the area do not end in pain, it is important to weigh your personal resistance to pain before getting pierced.
Be sure to consider any possible problems that may arise with your piercing, so that small problems do not escalate.
A chastity piercing can be something very personal. It can also be something that someone enjoys aesthetically. Whatever the reason, a piercing in the genital area can be a very satisfying piercing. Just make sure you take all the necessary safety precautions so that your personal or cosmetic piercing doesn't become a painful nightmare months later.
