Clitoral piercings

There have been other threads about how much preparation needs to be done 'down below' with regard to hair removal/tidying up etc. The answer of course is none except for personal preference

I would like to draw attention to the above topic thread. After once again having to fiddle about removing a clitoral ring last night prior to delivery, I thought I would highlight it here. There is a risk of tearing during childbirth which can be made worse where there is a metal object! Although no-one can make women remove them it is something to think about.

Anyone had any experiences? Did you leave it in or take it out?

You should get paid extra for that, no doubt.

I guess childbirth isn't anything after having had that done

eurgh, that goes beyond the call of duty imho

That goes above and beyoong the call Mears, god I took out the bellybuttn ring the day I found out, and after stretch marks, it has never returned.

Surely any woman would realise that it needs to cme out prior to birth!!!

Friend of mine once got slightly tipsy at an Ann Summers party and insisted on showing her brand new clitoral piercing to the assembled throng.
It was not a pretty sight.

nasa Mon 01-Nov-04 19:25:03

slightly tipsy??!! god, what does she do when she's really pissed

LOL. I thought someone would have experience. I thought about asking her DP to take it out but decided that would be too embarrassing for me (her piercing not his!)

OMIGOD!!! How completely totally disgusting Mears. Although it has really really made me laugh. I think it's the reaction of everyone else. That is just so gross. What if she had got AROUSED???????!!!!
OK-unlikely during childbirth I grant you....

crikey, I've led a sheltered adulthood . There was a man on the radio yesterday who said he had a bar through his banjo string. I cant for the life of me work out what that is, although it is obviously down below somewhere.

That is just too much for me ... I need to go and have a lie down to get over the shock ... I wouldn't do that if you paid me ...
Mears you are an amazing person ....

Ghosty Tue 02-Nov-04 09:12:00

zephyrcat Tue 02-Nov-04 09:16:47

mieow Tue 02-Nov-04 09:38:40

PuffTheMagicDragon Tue 02-Nov-04 09:39:13

frenulum - still don't know what that is - must find out.

PuffTheMagicDragon Tue 02-Nov-04 09:39:59

or where EXACTLY it is.

misdee Tue 02-Nov-04 09:41:04

ewwwww yuk. tho they must have been pierced by a stranger down there, so i dont think a midwife taking it out would've bothered them. but still eeeewwwwwwwww.

PuffTheMagicDragon Tue 02-Nov-04 09:42:43

OMG, wish I had NOT done that search, but I do now know what a frenulum is .

mears Tue 02-Nov-04 10:43:10

So nobody on mumsnet has this adornment? LOL banjostring

zephyrcat Tue 02-Nov-04 12:15:34

I know of a few guys with the banjo string thing and a few prince alberts! No women with it done tho. You must be mad! I'd have asked the boyfriend to do it. Yuk!!!
