As a piercing that is only intended for private enjoyment, the VCH piercing (vertical clitoral hood) has a mysterious aura. While even the name, the vertical piercing of the clitoris hood, makes you flinch (“Who would want to be pierced there at all?”, You might think), you may be surprised at how many people, from mothers who stay at home to to celebrities and love this piercing.
Most of you are likely to have a lot of questions when it comes to VCH piercing, whether it is a piercing you are considering, or just wanting to satisfy your curiosity. Fortunately, we have everything for you. Here’s what you need to know about VCH piercing:
What is VCH piercing?
Let’s start with the basics: what exactly is this piercing?
You can probably make a guess based on the name “vertical clitoral hood piercing”. The VCH piercing is a genital piercing that pierces the upper part of the clitoral hood vertically. The main purpose of VCH piercing is twofold: since the lower part of the piercing lies directly on the clitoris, it increases the sexual pleasure for the wearer and decorates the genital area, which simply makes the wearer feel good. (It’s like wearing sexy underwear to work. You know you’re the only one who sees it, but it still feels good to be dressed down there.)
If these were your genitals, the VCH piercing would be placed around here.
Although there are many types of genital piercings, VCH piercing is the most common among those with female genitals. However, you need to have the right anatomy to wear one, and many don’t have a clit hood that is suitable for VCH piercing. Since this piercing is in such a sensitive area, you want to listen to your piercer if he advises against it. You can choose from a variety of other options for genital piercing, and you don’t want to risk getting a piercing that will reduce sensitivity or cause other problems in this area.
Does VCH piercing increase sexual pleasure?
Yes, for the vast majority of carriers.
Since some of the jewelry is located directly on the clitoris, most people who receive this piercing have reported that they found it easier to peak after receiving the VCH piercing. In fact, many who couldn’t reach orgasm before piercing could do so for the first time after VCH piercing.
However, it is incredibly important that you choose a reputable piercer and be open with him.
While the placement of the piercing depends in part on your anatomy, your piercer would also like to place it so that your pleasure increases. To achieve this, you need to be able to discuss your preferences and what feels good with them.
If you feel uncomfortable talking to your piercer about these things, consider rethinking you get genital piercing at all. This is a very intimate process in which the piercer has to spend a lot of time examining your genital area to determine the correct placement. If you’re uncomfortable talking about your genitals and preferences, you’re likely to feel quite uncomfortable with other aspects of the VCH piercing process.
Is VCH piercing dangerous?
If you choose a reputable piercer, the VCH piercing shouldn’t be any more dangerous than any other piercing. However, it is important to find a piercer who has experience with genital piercings. This can mean that you are taking a trip to achieve this, especially if you live in a rural area.
You probably already know that there are tons of nerve endings in the genital area. If your piercer accidentally pierces the wrong area, you run the risk of permanently losing the feeling you have Really doesn’t want in your genital area. So you don’t want anyone to mess around with your VCH piercing.
You are understandably nervous when your VCH gets pierced, but choosing a reputable piercer isn’t as scary as you might think.
Aside from finding a piercer who knows how to do the piercing well, they need to be able to handle the process professionally. Many piercers require consultation before performing genital piercing. When it’s time to actually do the piercing, they’ll spend more than a few moments on it to make sure it’s in the right place. This means that the piercer will spend a significant amount of time in your private areas.
For this reason, you need to find a piercer that you feel comfortable with. Don’t be afraid to ask for a preferred gender, and if at any point you feel uncomfortable with the process, you can ask your piercer to stop. Piercers who have experience with genital piercings want you to feel as comfortable as possible and will not be offended if you ask about your needs.
If at this point you feel that your piercer has crossed a line, speak out. The members of the piercing community pride themselves on performing piercings in a safe and professional manner, and there is no place for piercers who abuse their position.
Does the VCH piercing hurt?
You will be surprised that VCH piercing hurts a lot less than you would expect.
If you’re like most people, you’re likely to flinch when you think of a needle somewhere near the clitoris hood. However, many people have said that the pinch they felt was about the same as piercing their rags and less than the pain they felt when they pierced their cartilage.
Of course, everyone’s pain tolerance is different, so you may have more or less pain. However, you will be surprised how easy it is.
How long does VCH piercing take to heal?
The genitals heal fairly quickly on their own, and healing of the VCH takes at least four to eight weeks.
Although you are probably excited to try your new VCH piercing, you will have to wait 4 to 8 weeks for the total healing time before testing it in the bedroom.
You might think the place makes it more susceptible to infections due to urination, discharge, and other natural events, but the opposite is the case. While you still have to clean your VCH piercing every day with a homemade sea salt mixture or a piercing aftercare solution, your vaginal area is already designed to clean itself. For this reason, you should have no problem healing your VCH piercing as long as you maintain good hygiene and follow the standard piercing aftercare.
What you should avoid when healing your VCH piercing
If you want your VCH to be pierced for increased sexual pleasure, you probably want to go to the bedroom and test it.
As with any other piercing, however, you need to keep the jewelry as calm as possible during healing to avoid complications. Here are some things you need to avoid while your VCH piercing is healing.
- Sexual intercourse
- Oral sex
- Touch the jewelry at all
- Swim and swim
- Limit alcohol and drug use
We know that you might get a little impatient, but it’s worth it for a safe healing process. The good news is that VCH piercing heals fairly quickly, so you should be able to enjoy it to the fullest sooner rather than later (as long as you take care of it while it heals).
VCH piercing and pregnancy
Whether you are planning to get pregnant soon or at some point in the future, you are probably wondering whether VCH piercing will affect this.
The good news is that a cured VCH piercing shouldn’t be in the way even at birth. Many who have VCH piercing have not had to remove it at all, and if so, it is purely voluntary. The position of the VCH piercing does not normally interfere with the birth process.
What jewelry can I wear in my VCH piercing?
You will be surprised how many jewelry options you can wear in your VCH.
You can carry anything from curved dumbbells to round dumbbells to various tire styles. You can even enjoy jewelry with charms, pearls and gemstones.

Whether you want to improve your sex life or are looking for a sexy new piece of jewelry that makes you feel safe, the VCH piercing could be exactly what you are looking for. It’s not as scary as you think as long as you take the time to research a reputable piercer, and you can have fun decorating it and feeling nice.
