Are piercings comfortable during sex?

Everyone always asks lots of questions about sex and piercings. I notice lots of “searches” with those words. (Naughty people!)

Lamentably, I am not an expert in that area, so I offer you this tidbit, as food for thought,  from someone who is.  Speaking of piercings through the head of the penis, that is the ampallang (horizontal through the head) and apadravya (vertical),  Elayne Angel says:

These piercings are not apt to bring enjoyment to penetrative sex for couples that have a “snug fit” already.  However, if they have more ease between them, the added jewelry could be just the thing to make them more size-compatible, and bring greater satisfaction to both.

Here, for your convenience, are the BME Encyclopedia articles on the apadravya and the ampallang. From there  you can find all the NSFW piercing pics you want, if you’re looking for that.

The quote is from Angel’s series of articles, “An Approach to Genital Piercings” in The Point.  All of The Point articles are available to read  here: .You haveto page through the .pdf pages, but they are completely worth your while if you are looking for solid information on piercing.

If you’re looking for a good all-around sex manual that you won’t be too embarassed to read, try this great book:  Guide to Getting it On. I see they just published a sixth edition of this great book.  Very detailed with the stuff you want to know, with a light touch.
