A standard ampallang is generally either transurethral or not as opposed to a shaft ampallang. An ampallang that passes through the urethra is called a transurethral ampallang. This piercing tends to get washed by the urine. Also, as it is divided into two roughly equal parts, it heals soon and easily. There is also less likelihood of such a piercing migrating with the use of the piercing for sexual purposes. According to some piercers, a piercing that is not transurethral is more comfortable to the wearer. However, such a piercing is slower in healing and the chances of rejection are also higher. If the wearer also has a PA, it might become extremely painful on account of pinching.
A piercing that passes from the top of the glans to the bottom is called an ‘Apadravya’ piercing. In case this piercing is behind the glans, it is referred to as a ‘Shaft Apadravya’. In fact, an apadravya piercing is a combination of a PA and reverse PA piercings. Several clients who have an apadravya piercing initially underwent only a PA.
The piercing that passes through the groove of the glans is called a dydoe piercing. It is believed that such piercings were originally used by circumcised males in order to obtain the sensation that they had lost due to the circumcision. It should be remembered that if the foreskin of an uncircumcised male is rigid, such a piercing would place high pressure on the area and cause slow healing. Hence, an uncircumcised male should get a dydoe piercing done only if the foreskin is loose.
A dydoe piercing is among those male genital piercings that cause pain. If appropriate jewelry is not used in a dydoe piercing and proper care is not taken, there might be rejection of the piercing.
Jim Ward is of the opinion that the dydoe piercing got its name from the word ‘doodad’ which means ‘a decoration’ The word ‘dydoe’ was originally coined by Doug Malloy.
Foreskin piercings tend to heal faster and almost every type of jewelry can be used in such a piercing.
How tight the foreskin of a person is determines whether a foreskin piercing would affect any other piercing. Generally, PA piercings are not affected by foreskin piercings. However, if the foreskin is not sufficiently loose, there might be problems with dydoe, apadravyas and ampallang piercings.
This type of piercing is done through the skin on the surface of the penis shaft. A fraenulum piercing is performed beneath the glans, but it does not involve the penis shaft itself or the urethra. Usually, this piercing is done across to the penis shaft, but it sometimes wrongly includes piercings done length-wise parallel to the penis shaft.
Like a PA, a fraenulum piercing is a male genital piercing that involves less pain and discomfort to the wearer.
The fraenulum piercing can also be done as a number of piercings along the mid-line beneath the penis, which is called a frenum ladder. It can also be performed as a frenum loop, wherein a ring that passes through a frenum piercing surrounds the penis shaft.
A piercing that is performed at the bottom of the scrotum, which passes through the perineum exactly at the place where the inseam of the wearer’s pants touch the skin is called a guiche piercing. Sometimes weights are attached to a guiche piercing in order to make it arousing for the wearer.
If the fold of skin at the area faces outward, a guiche piercing can be easily and safely undertaken. However, if this fold is flat, there are more chances of the piercing migrating or getting rejected.
A lorum piercing is a piercing that is done through the penis shaft, which is low and close to the scrotum. In fact, ‘lorum’ is short for ‘low frenum’. Sometimes, this piercing is done right on the raphe of the scrotum.
A Prince Albert Piercing is commonly known as a PA piercing. It is among the male genital piercings that are commonly undertaken. This piercing is quicker in healing and more comfortable to the wearer than others. It is less painful as compared to other types of piercings. However, the level of pain in case of a PA piercing may differ from one person to another. Some males have absolutely no pain or light pain after having a PA piercing done, while some males do report a certain level of pain.
Sometimes, a reverse Prince Albert piercing is also done. This type of piercing passes through the urethra to exit through a hole at the top of the glans.
A PA piercing is undertaken through the urethra and the penis from the outside of the frenulum. If the wearer has been circumcised, PA piercings can be done from the middle of the frenulum, while this cannot be done in case of uncircumcised males. Ideally, in an uncircumcised male, a PA piercing should be done exactly behind the glans, on one side of the ridge of the frenulum. At the times when the foreskin is pulled forward, the barbell ball is placed behind the glans beneath the foreskin.
A pubic piercing passes through the skin on the surface at the bottom of the penis shaft. This type of piercing is done because it looks attractive and also excites the wearer’s clitoris during sexual activity.
A reverse PA piercing is exactly the opposite of a PA piercing. In case of a PA piercing, the exit is through the bottom part of the glans, while it is through the top in case of a reverse PA piercing. This piercing passes through the urethra and the exit is through a hole in the upper portion of the glans. It is similar to the top half of an apadravya piercing or a PA piercing that is top-down.
A hafada piercing is done through the scrotum, usually through the upper portion of the scrotum. It is believed that hafada piercings were initially used by the males who came of age in the middle east.
