It wasn't uncomfortable but I got zero pleasure out of it, either. I'm not a fan of genital piercings (or tongue piercings, for that matter) on men. I certainly won't ever judge someone for having something pierced... I'm a pin cushion, myself. It just isn't my preference. I've heard ladders get much better reviews from women. I've never experienced one... but it makes sense why a ladder would be much more pleasurable for a woman.
