Everything You Should Know Before Getting a Clitoris Glans or Hood Piercing

What Is A Clitoral Hood Piercing?

Clitoral hood piercing is a type of clitoral piercing. It is usually done with a special metal ring which fits around the glans (head) of your clit. The purpose of this piercing is to make it easier for women to reach their genitals during sexual activity. The ring is placed over the glans so that it covers up any part of the glans from being seen by others. Women who have had this type of piercing are known as “clit whores”.

Why Do Some People Want To Get A Clitoral Hood Piercings?

Some women like having a small piece of jewelry on their body. They may not want to wear anything else because they feel uncomfortable without it. Others may get this kind of piercing out of curiosity, but then decide later that they don’t like wearing jewelry at all. These types of piercings are called “cosmetic” piercings because the wearer does not necessarily believe that it will enhance her appearance or sexuality. Some women who have this piercing may be more likely to get turned on or achieve an amount of sexual pleasure greater than that of a non-pierced woman.

What Are The Cons Of Getting A Clitoral Hood Piercing?

The ring can become easily displaced or lost. It can also cause some pain during the healing process. In addition, some people find these piercings to be “cheap”, whether that opinion is positive or negative. A few women may become jealous of other women who have this piercing.

How Much Pain Will You Feel After Getting Your Clitoral Hood Pierced?

A lot of the pain that you feel can be alleviated if you just take a few pain relievers, such as Advil or Ibuprofen. It is also important to keep the area clean and follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your piercer exactly. This can help to minimize any pain or risk of infection.

What Jewelry Should You Wear When You Get Your Clitoral Hood Pierced?

This kind of piercing will typically come with a ring that you can wear in your piercing. Many reputable piercers will also give you a small container of sea salt solution, which is used to clean the piercing with. You should change the solution in this container every day to ensure that it is clean and sterile. Be careful when changing the solution because you don’t want to get any on your new piercing. It is a good idea to just leave the container closed and only open it when you are ready to change the solution. Keep the piercer’s phone number on hand in case of an emergency, such as if you experience a lot of bleeding or pain.

What Kind Of Jewelry Should You Wear With This Piercing?

You can wear a ring that is the same size as the one that your piercer gives you. You can also add beads, charms, or other types of jewelry. There are different varieties of rings so you can switch it up as often as you like. If you want to change the look of your piercing without taking out the ring, you can typically just slip on a new charm or bead over the ring.

Does This Piercing Hurt If You’re Not A Woman?

There are no physical differences between a man’s and a woman’s genitalia, so this kind of piercing will not necessarily hurt more if you are actually a woman. However, men may experience other kinds of pain or complications because their anatomy is different from women’s anatomies in several significant ways. A man may experience pain from an infection after getting this piercing because the skin around the genitalia is more delicate than a woman’s skin.

Can You Wear A Clitoral Hood Piercing During Sexual Activity?

Yes, you can definitely wear a clitoral hood piercing during sexual activity. The ring will move around slightly as you engage in thrusting with your partner. This sensation may or may not be pleasurable. If you experience pain or discomfort, take out the ring immediately.
