Getting a PA piercing: important to know

For serious chastity we recommend you strongly to make a PA piercing. It is the only  way in combination with the Penicap cage, to be kept closed  long term without drawbacks in daily life.

Not every piercing studio knows about PA piercings

As we know by our experience with our partner piercing studio, there are a lot of wrong punched PA piercings, which heal sometimes, sometimes not. But, important in this context, they CANNOT be used for the Penicaps bcause of a wrong position.

We give you here some adivce how to sort out a good from a beginner piercer (oh yes, they ALL have plenty of experience and blabla). Just be wary what they tell you.

A common mistake is to pierce a PA with 14 G  (1.6 mm), the most common piercing caliber. They must perfom at least with  8 G (3 mm), or even better directly to 4 G (5mm), which is needed for the Penicap PA. From 8G to 4G it needs some stretching later, and a couple of months of time. Our parter studio XS Piercing in Basel (Switzerland) can do it in 5mm directly and under local ansthesia. They have done hundreds of PA’s in 3, 4 or 5mm.
A 1.6 mm ring cuts in under erection, is uncomfortable, to weak in sex, and it will be endless to stretch to 5 mm.

The exit point at the base of the glans is clearly defined, where the PA hole has to be. It is in the upper end of the groove, where the two halves of the glans come together in a V-form. This is usually in a standard, mid size penis 10-12 mm from the lower end of urethra opening. It may also be less, depending of the lower edge of the urethra opening, whose position is variable, and can end lower.
If you have a low ending urethra (which is a mild version of a hypospadia), the  tissue bridge of lower edge urethra (entry) and exit hole MUST be at least 8mm, otherwise you have a risk of tear or grow out. In this case, forget a PA piercing, and a Penicap is NOT possible.

the PA exit hole may NOT lay behind more than 2mm from the ideal exit spot (see above). PA holes too far behind of the ideal spot cause uncomfortable irritations. And the will not be a good fit into the penicap.

The exit hole is directly adjacent to the frenum ligament (or its remnants if circumsized), left or right does not matter. Choose the side where is more space, where are less or no veins.  A PA piercing NEVER goes through the Frenum ligament.

Always insert first a ball-closure ring, with enough diameter. The size is more given by the tissue bridge distance, than by the penis size, exept if you are strong grower. Usual internal diameters of 3 mm rings are 13-17 mm. Too big is uncomfortable in sex, too small cuts in nigthly erections and hurts. Sometimes you need to adjust the ring size.

After the piercing in 5mm, or stretching to 5mm, you need a healing time with the ring inside of at least 4 weeks, until you may try to mount the penicap. The hole must be completely healed without irritations.


Our advice:

select carefully a piercer (not just a studio, but the piercer person specifically), who has a demonstrable experience with PA piercings.

  • ask him how many he has done already.
  • ask him, where the exit hole will be precisely on YOUR penis, and he must  show you the exit point with a ball pen PRECISELY.
  • ask him if  he will pierce at least on 3mm diameter.
  • ask him how he will perform the piercing in detail: from inside to outside (reverse? run away…), does he give some sort of anesthesia, like icing outside, or topical surface anesthesia creme (which can be applied also inside the urethra)
  • ask him, how he is defining the exit point with the needle. If he wants to use a cork countersupport for punching, go away. He cannot see where he comes out. He has to lead through the needle under direct view from below.
