FEMALE PIERCINGS

I would not recommend that any woman get her clitoris pierced! You can damage a nerve bundle and in my opinion it is not woth that chance!

Labia Majora

Piercing of the outer labia originated as a form of chasity practiced in Ethiopia, Rome, India, and Persia. Most labia piercings are done now to enhance erotic feelings.

Clitoris Hood(Not the Clitoris!)

The clitoris hood is the skin that partially or completely covers the clitoris. Clitoral hood piercings are rapidly becoming one of the most popular genital piercings for women because of the added stimulas exacted by this piercing. The clit hood can be pierced either horizontally or vertically. In the horizontal piercing, a ring is chosen and placed so that the bead will rest directly on the clitoris head. This is not usually as successful at giving women the stimulas thats desired. The Vertical piercing gives alot more stimulas for women as it rest directly on the clitoral shaft. Either way most women find these piercings very stimulating.
