Do you know what is pearling? Is a new, latest sex trend that came up. There’s nothing new under the sun, but “pearling” is something doctors are warning others not to do. While pearling might sound like the sport of seeking pearls inside of oysters, this type of pearling is far from that practice.
There’s a Sex and the City episode where Samantha Jones wears a pearl thong, compliments of her boyfriend Richard. She’s thrilled at first. The beads tickle her vagina and arouse her to no end. But, when she runs in said pearly thongs, the experience is less than pleasant.
That’s kind of what happens when you’ve “pearled.”
Pearling involves putting plastic beads inside the penis via the skin of the penis. When you pearl, more parts of the genitals are stimulated; therefore it aids in a man’s arousal. It also titillates a man’s lover — vaginally and anally — and stimulates the clitoris.
Taking schlong enhancement to strange new levels, men are popping pearls into their penises to help them pleasure women. Genital beading involves inserting a small ball, often made of plastic or metal, beneath the skin of the penis via a small incision.
It apparently makes women “go mad with pleasure” because it stimulates the clitoris, but this could be a myth as the pearl is usually placed at the tip of the penis while it should be placed at the base to really stimulate the area.
The procedure, also known as pearling, is a form of body modification similar to inserting a subdermal implant, but alarmingly the surgery is usually performed at-home and without proper hygiene precautions.
The bizarre sex trend is becoming increasingly prevalent in Cuba, according to Vice Spain, as well as Australia and the Philippines.
It’s most common among young men in the military, sailors and convicts. And while nowadays men are choosing to insert the pearls for sexual satisfaction, the craze is said to have originated in Asia with Yakuza members performing pearling during their stints in prison.
But, it’s a very bad idea! Pearling can cause chronic pain, infection and damage to the urethra. Over time it can even cause erectile dysfunction. So if you want to experiment with sex, skip pearling all together and venture into sex toys like anal thongs or anal beads. It’s the safer choice. For those done at home, the health risks increase exponentially, because the person is often untrained about the anatomy of a penis, how deep to make the incisions, what types of tools to use and how to sanitise them properly.
