Male piercing. Prince Albert. Male genital piercing
Male penis piercings are becoming more and more popular! From a historical aspect, the Prince Albert may be the most widely known.
Prince Albert Names after Queen Victoria's husband and consort, Prince Albert was reported to have his genitals pierced in the late 1820's as part of a craze among men, who wore lightweight trousers. With a genital piercing, a gentleman could hook his penis to either side, so as not to create an unsightly bulge!
This piercing commonly uses a capture ball ring and passes directly through the urethra, exiting on the bottom behind the glans penis. The reverse Prince Albert passes vertically through the top center of the glans. Two more extreme piercings of the glans include the apadravya and the ampallang. The apadravya passes vertically through the glans and is a combination of the Prince Albert and reverse Prince Albert. The ampallang passes horizontally through the glans, either through the urethra or just above it. Other piercings of the male genitalia include guiche piercing, pubic piercing, and frenum piercing. Uncircumcised men may have their foreskin pierced.
