Question:: Can piercing your genitals cause sagging or dropping from the weight of the jewelry on an area such as the clit or hood?
Thanks for being in touch! The quick answer is yes, you can stretch out the tissues especially if you wear heavy jewelry. But you can also simply choose to wear light jewelry which shouldn’t cause any stretching. Your piercer can help you pick the right weight for the spot you want to pierce. You also want to talk to your piercer about placement so it falls right on your parts – I’ve known people you had the jewelry fall “just so” and give them lots of pleasure, and people who had to take it out quickly because it was just irritating. So take your time, use a mirror and talk to your piercer to get a good placement and fit. Do be aware that you can impact nerve endings and lose sensation, but this isn’t always true, just a risk inherent to piercing a highly sensitive part of your body.
Good luck and enjoy! If you go through with it, don’t forget to breathe deeply before and after – if your piercer isn’t trained in breath, just ask to take a big deep breath and then have them pierce you on a very long slow exhale.
