I decided to get an APA. Took me about a week to man up and git r dun, but now I have one! The worst part was waiting in the waiting room, lol. They pierced with an 11 and stretched to 10, so there was no blood. I could barely feel the needle coming up through the bottom, but when it got to the top, DAMN! It was over pretty quick though and I can hardly feel it atm. I have yet to pee; I hope it's not too bad. I had a tiny little birthmark "dot" on the top center of my glans that I had the piercer go through. I thought it was neat, sort of like I was meant to get one from birth. BTW, thanks to Jim at High Priestess Piercing in Eugene. Cost was $78 for the pierce, jewelry, soap and salts.
