This is the most common piercing and is said to be great for oral sex. The ball on the tip of the ring increases sensation for your partner.


Having your man play with your pierced nipples before or during sex is found to be highly arousing because the ring makes the area more sensitive.


Studies show that piercing your clitoris, whether vertically or horizontally, increases sensitivity because it lifts your skin. Vertical piercings are used mostly by women who struggle to reach orgasm.

Sexpert Cindy Barshop says while piercing the clitoris is possible, however, it is rare that a person actually has a clitoris large enough to accommodate it.

This is the most common type of piercing amongst men. A ring is placed on the underside of the penile shaft. This is used to enhance pleasure for women in certain positions like the doggystyle. The ball on the tip of the ring gets in direct contact with the g-spot.

Ensure that this is done by a professional and always keep your piercings clean to avoid infections.
