Many women get genital piercings for personal reasons and the private nature of the piercing means that it can be achieved without any outside knowledge. Piercers have commented that many women who ask for female genital piercings display no other forms of body modification, suggesting that these piercings arenít just for those who have tried many other piercings and are looking for the next thrill. They are also the fastest growing form of womenís body
modification and have become less taboo in recent years.
With female genital piercings, itís incredibly important that you choose an experienced piercer who is familiar with the layout of the body. Some piercers require a consultation as female genitalia can vary hugely, which can restrict the kinds of piercings that might be available to you. This form of womenís body modification is probably the one most people wince about when they think of it but a well-trained piercer should be able to give you an effective piercing that results initially in only a tight pinch. Immediately afterwards you may feel discomfort or warmth and itís incredibly important that you keep your genital piercing clean by cleansing it at least twice a day with a saline solution. The healing time often depends on which female genital piercing youíre receiving but sexual activity is strictly forbidden for at least the first 10 days of healing and that you use a condom for any activities until your piercing is completely healed (even with a long term partner).
It is Blue Banana policy that anyone obtaining a female genital piecing will have a witness in the room (a member of staff) to oversee the procedure. If you choose a piercer who is not fully experienced then a botched body modification in this area can lead to a reduced amount of feeling in the groin or even (in extreme cases) a complete loss. With body jewellery in this area, you should always use internally threaded barbells rather than externally threaded ones as they can trap body fluids when used for genital piercings. If youíre interested in female genital piercings then you should know that his form of womenís body modification can vary hugely:
