My husband is planning on either getting his Prince albert or Apadravya done…..I wanted to know which one feels better for both partners? He said it was my decision which one he should get. I just dont know which one would be more comfortable and easier to have sex with once it heals.
Everyone’s going to have a different opinion on what kind of piercings feel better.
A Prince Albert is going to be much less invasive for a first-time genital piercing. Your husband will be out of commission for a bit longer after an apadravya as well.
The other option you could try would be to buy a “realistic” silicone toy and pierce it accordingly. I’ve done this for clients in the past who are concerned about their partner not appreciating the feel of jewelry inside their body cavities. It’s not the exact same thing, but it may give you a bit of a better idea.
Read some experiences on BME, put the word out and make an informed decision. Good luck!

Is it possible to have an apadravya piercing that doesn’t go through the urethra? I know that having it go through the urethra anchors it, but I’m kinda concerned by the possibility of having leaks while urinating.
Yes, it is possible…although not all that common as it will typically result in an off-center piercing, which most people aren’t into from an aesthetic point of view.
While leaking is a possibility with an apadravya, it’s much less likely than with a PA piercing.
If you do have leaking, it is usually easy to simply press the bottom ball of the barbell up against the bottom hole to eliminate the leaking. You might get a little pee on your fingers, but hey…you should be washing your hands after using the bathroom anyway.

I have had a PA for 5 months now. It started at a 10g and after 3.5 months I moved to a 8g. Well now the piercing seems loose enough that I could move to a 6g but I don’t want to push myself and risk tearing/thinning the tissue. Is there a guideline of how long I should wait in between moving to a new gauge or how can I tell when it is healed enough? I have no intentions of rushing the process, but if I am ready to move up I am more than willing.
When I moved up to the 8g from the 10g the new jewelry went in easily with no resistance.
You kind of answered your own question friend
If the pathway is resisting the jewelry being inserted, its not ready and you should wait longer.

I was wondering if there is any effective way to numb my penis for a prince Albert piercing without novacaine.
Im no stranger to mods (16 facial piercings, multiple tattoos, etc) and I have had it done before, but had to take it out for personal reasons. I loved the piercing, but getting it was rather uncomfortable getting it, so I’d like to avoid it if possible. If its just impractical, and I jut need to man up, so be it.
Thanks for reading,
Well Butcher first out of curiosity, what exactly was it about the first Prince Albert attempt that you felt uncomfortable? Was it the Receiver Tube? The needle passing through or the jewelry insertion?
You can use a Xylocaine Jelly based anesthetic, without Epinepherine, which can be applied into the urethra (ie: take a q-tip and apply the jelly onto it and insert it into the urethra around where the needle would be passed through). You can also obtain a produce called: EMLA; however you will want to make sure its completely cleaned off the surface area before piercing.
Usually though with my clients I tend to advise them that anesthetics are usually not needed as the pain will be minimal. I think the only time I’ve ever used any anesthetics with PA’s is when I did my 4ga PA by myself, mostly just to take the “edge” off since I was doing the procedure myself to myself.
Realistically though all you’d need, if anything, is the Xylocaine Jelly, that is if you REALLY MUST/NEED to use an anesthetic. But just know that even though it was uncomfortable the first time around, doesn’t always mean it’ll hurt the same or worse the second time.

I have had an 8g PA for about 2 months now and so far it has been fairly pain free and all. Yesterday I noticed when I was sleeping that there was some pain at the area of my urethra that the piercing exits out of when I laid on my stomach. I didnt think too much about it until later in the day when I went to take a piss and it was like i was pissing razorblades. Fast forward to this morning the pain when urinating is still there although it has been a bit more bearable but there was a tiny bit of discharge from the tip of my penis which conerns me. I cleaned the piercing/area with a mild soap and I have been doing some saline soaks here and there throughout the morning but the pain is still present and going to the bathroom still has me swearing and cringing. I was just wondering what the possible issues could be and what the best route would be to take as far as treatment.
Unless you’re dealing with some sort of sexually transmitted disease, it sounds to me like you irritated (maybe even tore) your piercing and/orurethra. You will know better than anyone if you’ve been doing anything recently that might have contributed to that. I would suggest seeing how it is in another day or so. If there isn’t any improvement, or the situation gets worse, a trip the doctor would be in order, I’d say.

I’m considering getting a pubic piercing but i just have a question or two about it. First - rejection. Whilst I am aware all piercings carry that risk is this a commonly rejected piercing or merely a bit of migration? Secondly - jewellery. Barbell or surface bar? Surface bar seems like it might be a good idea as it would put less stress on the fistula exits but I may be talking out of my ass. It might be a negative sexually though?
Thanks for any info.
Migration and Rejection will vary from individual to individual. So as always its to be considered a 50/50 call on this matter, in all cases. Because even if the technique of insertion was correct and the right jewelry was used,etc. It heavily also falls upon the clients ability to properly care for the piercing, as well as just how your body wants to react to the jewelry being there.
Personally I would say a surface barbell would indeed be the ideal jewelry option to wear.
Of course in terms of “sexually” the negative would be: 1) you’d have to either abstain from sex for awhile to give your piercing the best chance it can to heal. 2) OR be very gentle and try not to cause too much trauma/impact to the piercing during the act. Of course sometimes with some people, #2 just is not an option

I have hypospadia…looks like a meatotomy. I want a reverse PA that exits behind the head on the top, but haven’t seen a piercing like this before. Can it be done? Why don’t apradavya piercing exit behind the head? Am I a unique candidate for this because of the hypospadia?
What you want is a shaft halfadravya. Look up shaft apadravya and halfadravya on bme encyclopedia for an understanding of what that means and the risk associated with piercing in the shaft.

I’m planning on getting a somewhat large tattoo from hip to mid-thigh, and I’ve booked a consultation with an artist who’s linework I really like.
However, while I like his linework, I prefer the shading of another artist at the same shop. Would it be bad manners to request a “compilation” piece for one to do the linework while the other does shading?
Generally speaking, yes.
If the artist who’s doing your tattoo isn’t good enough to do the whole tattoo, you shouldn’t be going to him/her at all.
While getting tattooed by two artists at the same shop is perfectly acceptable, I don’t think you’d really get a positive response from what you’re suggesting.

So I’ve been planning a genital project for quite some time now and while reading through AskBME, I read that shaft piercings can cause erections to be painful.
The planned project was a RPA, 4 trans-urethral apadrayvas, and 4 (possibly trans-urethral) ampallangs.
My question is this: Would it be wise to go with microdermals/dermal anchors where I would want the shaft piercings or should I stick with the old school?
If I did go with the anchors, would I have to be more cautious during sexual activity due to the thinness of the skin along the shaft?
Someone asked a similar question just a few days ago. So I don’t feel I need to point out how BAD of an idea anchors in the penis is. I would like to point out a third option that, to me, is a far better choice than either of the two you mentioned. Genital beading or other genital implants. They should provide what you are looking for with none of the downfalls associated with the methods you mentioned.

Let see here I have been reading on meatotomys for a while now and I realize how much I am in love with them,
I am living in the panama city area of florida and dont know where to go for this prosedure, my quistion is whether or not I should go to a urologist?
and if yes how do I bring that up?
and if not where do I go, I am totally for DIY procedures but am too much of a panzy to do that myself,
HELP ME OUT GUYS!
Most urologist would scoff at this procedure and claim it goes against there oath. Piercers are notoriously against DIY, but I support it if done safely. A meato using the old school clamp method is very simple to perform on oneself. I did mine in the living room of another QOD staff members living room with his guidance a long, long time ago and it was a defining moment in my venture into heavy modifications. Since then I have helped dozens of other perform this on themselves and feel if done with a bit of common sense it is a good rite of passage.
