The Prince Albert Piercing: Love ‘Em Or Hate ‘Em?

If you play your cards right in life, perhaps you can have a genital piercing named after you in death.

If you watched Breaking Bad last night, you’d know that aside from bald heads galore, it was also about magnets — lots and lots of magnets. When you’re dealing with magnets, it is of the utmost importance that you remove all metal objects from your person so you’re not sucked into the aforementioned magnet and banged up beyond recognition.

As the characters on Breaking Bad removed anything from them that could cause for a less than stellar situation, there was a final check list of things that included metal plates, artificial hips and genital piercings. Of course all eyes landed on Jesse Pinkman as they waited for him to remove an assumed ring from his dick while he asked “why are you looking at me?” I guess Jesse looks like the type to have a piercing in his penis? Because he’s shady and hot? Are those the requirements?

According to statistics, those who have the Prince Albert piercing are 89% white, 82% straight, 87% drug-free and 56% claim to make more than $45,000 a year. But that still doesn’t tell us exactly how many men are running around with this piercing.

I have seen one — Tattoo Guy to be exact. Between seeing the cock ring and the Prince Albert piercing that first night, I knew I was either in for something great or just a messy, metal type of deal. It turned out to be the former despite my initial reaction of: “So you’re not taking that off before we have sex?” I’m not exactly sure who’s supposed to benefit more from the piercing, but I can say that the damn thing touched places in me that really took the sexual experience to a whole new level. And I’m not even in to piercings; I actually despise body piercings and never thought I’d live to see that day that I was having sex with someone who had one on his cock, of all places.

What are our thoughts on this piece of jewelry?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    Though I have a bunch of genital piercings, I’ve never been with someone who did, so I dunno. Likely for the best, knowing my luck, we’d get somehow hooked together.

      A bunch? Like where — if you don’t mind me asking. I thought you could only do one place on a vagina (I apologize for my ignorance on the matter!)

    • BeccaTheCyborg

      You can do about 20 different kinds, actually, though they’re all based on your, uh, build. (No need to apologize, if you’re not into piercings/a piercer, there’s no reason to know.)

      I’ve got 4 outer labia piercings right now. And they’re pretty much fantastically awesome and I love them and they’re fun. (They hurt while being done, then not at all, and healed fast. Like, a week and a half.) I had a vertical hood piercing, and…it was actually really meh. They’re supposed to be the most fun ever, but mostly it just kind of sat there. I took it out when I started getting the others because it looked too busy.

    • Amanda Chatel

      Wow. You have opened my eyes… and I applaud your pain tolerance! I have a bunch of tattoos, but I don’t think I could let anyone down there with a needle… or maybe I could. At some point I might get bored with tattoos and may want to try something else… we’ll see.

      Thank you!

      I’d say most of my tattoos hurt worse, not least because you have to sit there for hours while they’re being done, and a piercing is more of a split-second of WTF OW and then it’s done. I’m actually a huge wuss for pain, it’s just the stubbornness that gets me through. It is a bit weird having a relative stranger down there, but as long as your piercer is professional, it’s not that awkward.

    PA jewelry is stainless steel which is not magnetic or made from other non-magnetic jewelry so it’s not detected going through airport inspections.

    My general rule for dating is a man can’t have more piercings than I do. I don’t even have my ears pierced so I’m going to have to say no to this one.

    There’s lots of information available if you want to educate yourself about genital piercings both men and/or women. This happens to be my professional specialty and I can tell you that many people from ALL walks of life sport a metal secret or two, and you would never guess! For information look up The Piercing Bible–I have several web pages devoted to factual and practical information on this topic.
