    Any cyclists out there whom have PA piercings? My questions are, is the PA comfortable when riding, while wearing bike tights, and is it visible through the Lycra material? Also, how much downtime from piercing to first ride? Thanks.

    I cycle. It does show but no more than ordinary bulge. But it is there if you are looking for it. Couple of weeks should be long enough downtime. But you will know if you catch it

    The curved barbell is least likely to interfere with you biking pleasure. And no, it doesn't show, as far as I know...

    Two weeks downtime? I may have to wait until late fall to get mine. From here on out I am riding five or six days a week until then. And I really like the looks of the curved bar bell PA. Currently I wear a glans ring but want more and cumming through a glans ring is not as enjoyable. Thanks for your input.

    I went out and rode about 70km 2 days after piercing with a 6g curved barbell. I did wrap it up fairly carefully, and it wasn't very comfortable. Probably better to give it a week or two to heal really.

    Circular rings show a bit more than curved barbells. Non of this matters if I'm riding around the country by myself, but I try and be a bit discreet when I go track cycling.

    Some knicks/cycling shorts/tights are better than others when it comes to hiding your piercing. I find the bib style is the best. 8 panels seems to be better than 6 as it cups your package better - I have a pair with 6 panels and I tend to slip down the leg. Tight rather than loose sizing helps. Non shiny thicker/better quality lycra also helps (Roubaix winter weight lycra is good). Black is best.

    My PA is now 0 gauge, and I think the guy at the cafe where I stop on one of my regular rides might have noticed, but he hasn't said anything. Most people probably don't think about genital piercings, so they're not exactly on the look out for them. Having said that, I suspect most people sus out cyclist's lycra bulges more than they are prepared to admit (or maybe it's just me).

    Thanks Spamme. I always wear 8 panel bibs when I ride and they are very comfortable. I really don't care what others see or think about my dress. Some folks see my glans ring under my tights but never have I received an overt reaction.

    Hi Newagemale, as I said, I don't think many folks know much about, or are looking out for, genital jewellery. If anyone spots it, they will probably get a bit of a giggle out of it rather than being shocked or disturbed by it. Same goes for conspicuous bulge or VPL.

    Aussies used to be less uptight about all this (don't forget we invented Speedos, and before that we just took to the beach in the nude). But Aussies take their lead from American culture now days - I went to the beach last week and nobody wears Speedos any more, they all wear board short. People seem to have become so prudish in public whilst privately looking at anything and everything that takes their fancy on the internet (70% of internet traffic is porn).

    I'm about your age and similarly uninhibited, and I can't pretend even to myself that at my age I have a hot body, but I think it is up to us to show the young folks how to have a bit of fun and not be so uptight. Get out there and give them something to think about.

    I'm sure my 18 year old son thinks I'm completely embarrassing.

    Think it will be best to give it a bit of time to heel right, or at the very least, wear a Jock to hold it right, so it does not move about much.

    Thought I don't do the full on lycra bib setup and all that, I can deffo understand the problems you may face, as a cyclist out of need myself, as at times, it's the only transport I have myself.

    As for showing, a friend at the local cycling club here, tells me you get VPL all the time, and 2 of the reg riders have PA's, and it don't bother them if it shows or not.

    I have a 2ga pa and have never bothered me ever. Now when I had a guiche I had to take it out right away. I miss it though. Oh well. Just as long as you have your dick pointed up and away from the seat you should be fine. Its ok to show off the ring silhuette

    I'm all for a bit of fun, but there are times when I don't want my PA to show through my cycling knicks. There are junior members at my cycling club, so I try to hide it when they are around.

    Do your research and find a piercer who has plenty of experience doing PAs. There are a lot of accounts on the internet of folks getting pierced by so called experienced professionals with really small gauge piercings (14g, 12g), which are not very comfortable and prone to the cheese cutter effect. There are also many accounts of people who got pierced way too shallow - the piercing needs to be through the tougher part of the urethra so that it doesn't migrate out.

    I'm a DIY kind of guy so I did my own piercing at 6g - not for the faint hearted - I got away with it, and I think I did a pretty good job, but I wouldn't really recommend DIY to anyone else.

    Yep.... I'll add to this, by checking the following link, which is an info guide from my piercer in Leicester

    I am interviewing different studios now and I have run into a small gauge piercer and have decided against that studio. The other two folks I talked to recomend 10g or 8g, which I like the looks of much more thean 14g or 12g. Also, the length of flesh between my eurythra and the piercing location gets much longer with erection and how does the piercer account for that?

    I have never had any issues with my 2 ga PA. I also have two guiche piercings and have no problem with them either and I'm on the bike at least one time a day.
