Are You At Risk Of A Piercing Pain?

Genital piercing on your agenda, stud? Think long and hard. Research from the Journal of Sexual Medicine has found 50 per cent of people with such piercings report problems during sex, either for themselves or their partner.

The most common piercing for men is a “Prince Albert” (google it), while most women opt for a vertical clitoral hood piercing (again, Google’s your chum here). Both left recipients open to the possibility of tearing, bleeding, swelling and infection. Yep, genital jewellery comes at a price.


77% – The increased likelihood of having sex at least once a week for men with vasectomies compared with men who hadn’t been snipped.
