Getting some jewellery down there may gather some hot benefits. So before you get your panties in a twist, most clit piercings are not really through the clitoris, but through the small flap of skin above the clitoris, called the clitoral hood. These piercings are called vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercings.

Direct clitoral piercing can increase sensitivity extremely and even cause permanent nerve damage, which is why clitoral hood piercings are more popular.

Having a clitoral piercing can hurt but everyone’s perception of pain is different and often pain is influenced by how relaxed someone is.

If you’re getting your clitoral hood pierced and seeing a licensed piercer, the risk is the same as with other piercings. The vaginal tissue has a good blood supply and heals well. But, risks include infection and scar tissue formation that could block the urethra and obstruct urination.”

So to keep the piercing infection-free, clean it regularly with saline solution and be gentle with the surrounding area as it heals. Plus, you should always urinate after cleaning the piercing since pee is a natural sterilizer.
