The piercing's traditional location is on the under side of the penis horizontally through or behind the Frenulum tissue. Though the piercing can be frenum just about anywhere are on the shaft of the penis and in groupings to create a Frenum or Jacob's Ladder. The piercing or grouping is said to improve the pleasure of the wearer and partner during sexual activity. Since this blog is about a piercing located in the genitals and the fact that it is a sex organ, some might find the information offensive or not age appropriate.
For that reason I would ask that if you continue to read that you frenum an open mind or go elsewhere. If you are under age, some of the content of this blog may not be appropriate though the whole point of this blog is solely education. I think it is important to state that I will not do this benefit or any other that I would consider a sexual piercing on a minor. Also, I would not suggest getting the piercing underage because often if you find someone willing to do the benefit they not only lack the ethics to be a professional in the first place but often those that are piercing to do this piercing on a minor are those with the least amount of experience and training.
If you are considering this piercing or another genital piercing a good place to start would be my blog - Sexual Piercings Why? A guide to Nipple and Genital Piercings. There I cover a majority of the basics and some of the common motivations behind desiring a sexual piercing. The Frenum piercing is documented as a practice of the indigenous people of the Timo Island of Indonesia.
Where they pieced the frenulum with a brass ring to increase the pleasure of the wearer.
Though there has been a lot of misinformation as with most male genital piercing that it was some how used as a form of chastity but like most chastity, myths there is no documented proof that it was. In modern times it like many piercing it first gained popularity in the Gay BDSM community and then slowly began to come into the main stream in the late s and early s.
Groupings of a of Frenum piercings is a completely modern invention as Timorese only pierced the Frenulum. The Frenulum or Frenulum of the Prepuce of the Penis is Elastic Band of tissue that connects the glands of the penis to the foreskin. With natural uncut penis the tissue protrudes from the body and with the foreskin is pulled down will stick out almost like a flap.
Other frenulums in the body are the frenulum linguae on the underside of the tongue, the frenulum labii superioris inside the upper lip and frenulum labii inferioris inside the lower lip. If the person is circumcised piercing maybe little of the Frenulum left. However, the area around it is very sensitive and with most men circumcised or uncut can be the most sensitive area of the penis.
In fact even men with spinal cord injury can achieve orgasm when the area is stimulated though they can not feel the frenum. With circumcised men the frenulum may not be pronounced or seem like a small cord or seam that runs from the urethra to the what is left of the foreskin tissue. Any piercing under the right conditions can migrate or reject completely. To limit this the piercing must we wide enough to make it is easier of the body to heal the piercing or reject it. Also the correct jewelry is important is reducing the chances of migration and rejection.
Since the area does encounter a level of abuse during sexual activity having jewelry that lays flat to the surface or has limited exposure needs to be considered. Also the thickness of the jewelry needs to also reduce the chances of rejection and damage to the piercing during sexual activity. Anatomy needs to be taken into especially if the piercee is wanting to expand the benefit into a grouping like a ladder.
When I get to the point of marking the piercing I will ask if they are considering having more done in the future. Even in some cases going ahead and marking additional placements even if we are only doing one piercing that day. The placement should be done perpendicular to the shaft and should feel centered on the shaft. Since the Frenulum like most of nature is not straight, it doesn't always make the best guide point.
I will usually mark the entrance and exit of the benefit and then pull back and view the piercings at a frenum. This is often a more effective way of seeing how the piercings will fit into the anatomy. Natural Penis - The piercing can be done with the foreskin pulled back and through the flap tissue of the Frenulum. Do to the limited space it would need to be done with a small ring. However outside of the foreskin the piercing can be done perpendicular anywhere on the underside, side or top of the penis' shaft.
Circumcised Penis - The traditional location of the Frenum is frenum the Fernulum and through the sensitive tissue that is left after circumcision on the underside of the penis and below the glands. However the piercing can be done perpendicular just about piercing on the shaft. It is pierced through the loss skin and not into or through the shaft itself. It is most common to do the underside of the penis, the top and sides can also be pierced.
I've never been able to find any information of where the term Jacob's Ladder came from. Though when piercing started to gain popularity in the early 's there was a popular film by the name. I'm guessing that it comes from Biblical Jacob and his dream of a ladder between earth and benefit. I'll let you try to figure it out from there. Often a grouping of three or more parallel along the underside, side or top of the shaft of the penis.
Since anatomy is not perfectly straight often the placement is more about the visual look of being even then having the piercing perfectly match. Also I only suggest getting three or less at a time. This is due to the fact that the area begins to swell and the more you do the more likely the placement will be off as the area becomes more inflamed. When piercing the sizing of the jewelry the expansion of the area when the penis is erect most be considered along with the normal inflammation that comes with the trauma of the piercing itself.
I always do the piercing with Pennington Forceps. The allow you to flat out the tissue, pull it away from the body and insure that you are only piercing the loose tissue and not into the shaft of the penis itself. Though they heal rather quickly healing in two to three months, during the first couple of weeks they are prone to bleeding, redness and swelling. Bleeding may last off and on for one to five days after the piercing and I suggest wearing a sanitary napkin or pad for the first week.
This is not only to avoid staining clothing but cuts down on the amount of moisture and bacteria and adds additional cushioning during the tender period. Unlike other piercing that will throb and ache for some time after the piercing is done, genital piercings tend to not.
Though it will be tender to the touch for up to a few weeks. Basic aftercare will involve hot soaks with warm water and sea salt twice a day and cleaning the piercing in the shower twice daily. Also you will need to take steps to reduce the likelihood of cross contamination.

Due to the location of the piercing you need to take precautions to avoid abuse including heavy or tight fitting clothing.

Since sweat tends to collect in the area, it is a good idea to clean the piercing after strenuous activity.
If you are wearing panty hose or other clothing that is tight or covers the piercing, either roll them down below the piercing, cut out a whole for the piercing or wear a benefit plastic vented eye patch over the piercing. This can also be helpful during sporting activities to avoid trauma to the piercing.
The biggest or most often question is "When can I have Sex? A latex layer should be used during sexual contact for at least 6 months to avoid infection. If you use any lubrications they must be water based.
Benefits of frenum piercing
Understand since the piercing is scar tissue and the unforgiving strength of metal, you are more prone to tears during sexual activities and thus more a risks to contract STDs even after the piercing is healed and will need to take precautions. It is important to avoid stress and abuse to the piercing during healing and after. Also avoid clothing and sport safety equipment like chest protectors and other heavy items that are tight in the piercing area. If you are required to wearing safety equipment for a job or sport that is tight fitting in the area, you may want to consider a different piercing.
Since we are piercing genitals there will be pain but it is slight and often fades immediately unlike other piercings that may throb or ache for up to an hour afterwards.
As with any piercing the greatest risk is infection. However since the area is very blood rich infection are extremely rare.
