Genital Piercings – Distinguishing the Facts from Myths
Genital piercings are not as uncommon as you might think. While it is true that some people are freaked by the mere idea of getting a piercing ‘down there’, there are others who can’t think of anything more exciting and daring. Genital piercings are an expression of individuality and more and more people are now opting for them.
As is the case with anything uncommon, there are many myths attached with both male and female genital piercings. Let’s try and separate some prevalent myths from the facts:
Genital piercings hurt much more – No they don’t! Getting a hole punched in your body is bound to hurt and genital piercings hurt only as much as any other piercing would.
Genital piercings take much longer to heal – Take good care of them and genital piercings will actually heal faster than navel and eyebrow piercings. While a navel piercing can take up to 8 months to heal, a Prince Albert piercing can heal in as less as 2 weeks.
Genital piercings can cause paralysis – Not anymore than ear piercings can cause deafness. If gone bad, any piercing can have bad repercussions, but paralysis is probably one of the rarest and most extreme counter effects. The trick is to recognize an infection and eliminate it before things get out of hand.
Genital piercings never heal completely – Nothing backs this myths, except that people are scared of the idea of genital piercings on the whole. All it takes is some care and every piercing heals in due time. There is no reason to why genital piercings would not ever heal. Neither is it true, nor is it possible!
Genital piercings are more prone to infections – Every piercing is prone to infections and so is a genital piercing. But there is no proof of the myth that these piercings are attacked by infections more. Regular cleaning will make sure that your genital piercing heals wells and stays healthy and infection free.
If you are thinking of getting a genital piercing, rest assured that you are not making a mistake or doing something outrageous. Just make sure that you take good care of them and there will be no problems. These are the most easy to deal with piercings as they cannot be seen by anyone other than those who you choose!
Be careful, dispel all the myths and enjoy this little secret which will be your own forever and ever!
