    Maybe it’s complete rumor and I’m uninformed, but I always heard that after piercing your sensation is either really intensified, or compeltely destroyed.  Again, I am no expert.

    I’m a huge pussy, no pun intended. A friend of mine has it though. She says that jogging got reallllly difficult, because she would get aroused and almost have an orgasm.

    Sorry. Too Much Information, but honest.

    I LOVE MINE. End of story haha. I’ve had it done since about 19ish, so its around 4 years old right now, and I have stretched it up, but its currently back down to the 12g it was pierced at.

    I find mine very arousing, but I heard that some women dont. Mine personally, can catch on my jeans or underwear and send me a little butterfly down there. 

    I will admit it was painful, but not as painful as I thought it would be. 30 seconds of hot intense burning and then it was over. To be honest, I have my nipples as well both horizontally and vertically, and the second nipple piercing during both those sessions was ENTIRELY worse than my VCH. There was a bit of soreness during healing (I lived in skirts at the time to avoid that) but overall, it was really one of the easier piercings I’ve had to heal. 

    It takes about 6 weeks to heal fully, but you can listen to your body and it to see if you want to push yourself. You can get around it abstaining though. Being careful with it at first, and don’t do positions that have tons of friction on it. We stuck to from behind (no hitting whatsoever) and with me on top, so I could control if I was putting too much pain on it.’


    Just make sure you go to a qualified, professional piercer. They will Q-tip check you first to make sure that you are anatomically fit for it. After 7 years in the piercing world, the only people who have lost feelings are those who are pierced by hacks. Look for APP members!

    Never had an orgasm… like, ever? Or do you mean outside of foreplay? Or with your husband at all? I have read that many women do not experience orgasm without direct clitoral stimuation. I am that way, but I can’t imagine myself going so far as getting a piercing.

    I have one.  It’s horizontal, which is what I’d recommend if you’re going to do it.

    I didn’t get it for sexual reasons, I got it to be a bad ass (and yeah it was 10 years ago when I was young and ‘stupid’).  It does not increase sexual arousal in my case, it’s just an accessory.  I tried taking it out and found that I had become dependent upon it, however.  So I put it back in.

    As with any piercing, it has potential to get infected or to migrate.  It hurts like a motherf*cker getting it done, seriously the worst 8 seconds of my life.  But that was it, 8 seconds.  Make SURE you get it done by a legit piercologist and not some freak who likes needles.  And make sure they’ve done it a zillion times before.

    I have had partners say that it gets in the way, so that’s going to be a personal opinion with you and your husband.

    At this point in my life I have no plans to remove it.  I can see myself with it still at age 80.


    Honestly, it’s not that big of a deal.  Get it done. If you hate it, you can always take it out.  It’s not like a tattoo or any other permanent modification.

    Okay personal question…maybe Too Much Information too, lol, but if you use a vibrator does it rattle against the piercing? I would think that would be really distracting! hahaha

    Do it! you can just take it out if you don’t like it. No harm in trying.

    I dont know how much it would do in the bedroom departnment though. The lack of orgasm, when with different partners is usualy due to an emotional issue not the actual sex. Have you guys seen a sex therapist?

    Well, to start and be perfectly clear, you’re not piercing your actual clitoris, at least not if you have any sense at all, you’re piercing the clitoral hood, the skin covering the clitoris. I know many, many people with it done and a good many piercers and none will actually pierce the clit unless you’re an extremist who wants to take the chance you”ll cause serious damage.  I have a vertical hood piericing with a barbell, I did it about 12 years ago, as well as nipples done many times (they migrate and need to be redone every few years) It can catch on things, though rarely. It has added no sensation or sensitivity whatsoever, most dont unless you are already super sensitive, and it was painless to have done. And yes, it does rattle against a vibrator and can make using one uncomfortable if you pinch the skin between the peircing and the vibe. It also ocassionally gets pinched or pulled during sex. They are far more aesthetic than functional. It can also get in the way during oral and Fiance is not a huge fan of it for that reason.

    Edit: reread and saw you’re looking for same piercing I have. Some people think the actual clit is done, thus my “dont do that” rant at the begining of my post…lol Thats what I get for skimming posts.

    I had one for about a year, and my husband and I absolutely LOVED it.  

    Getting it pierced was like a really strong, painful pinch. Super intense pain, but it only lasted for literally a second.  Once the jewelry was in, it didn’t hurt at all.  It definitely enhanced our foreplay and sex, and really intensified my orgasms.  Unfortunately, I had to take it out for medical procedure, and it closed up.  I’d love to get it repierced someday.  I did not lose sensitvity after removing the jewelry. I say go for it!

    I had one for awhile but got bored with it and took it out. 

    The piercing itself it a pretty nasty pinch. I definitely gasped. But it’s REALLY QUICK because that skin is almost tissue thin, and then it really doesn’t hurt very much after that at all. Honestly, it didn’t make much of a change for me as far as orgasms went. I kept it in because of aesthetics, I thought it was pretty for awhile. The healing process was pretty quick as well. 

    I mean, I say go for it. If you don’t like it, you can always take it out. You only live once! 

    However, not everyone’s vagina is shaped in such a way that the vertical hood is possible. I’m sure if yours isn’t, the piercer will tell you. 

    Do it up, lady! ^_^
