    You could start with a classic, and have a PA. Then later, you would change it to an apa (still under consideration here....lol). It might be better to start with a reverse PA, as I believe that this would make any later conversion a bit easier. As for prices, over to Darren et al.............

    All genital piercings are 50 from my shop, but some piercers charge up to around 90 cos a lot of male piercers have a complex about handling another guy's junk and a lot of female piercers are intimidated by guys wanting that done. So yeah, expect prices around that range.

    As for what you want, PA's heal quicker but can be a bit annoying depending on the jewellery you wear, the guage you're at etc, also larger rings can make sex a little more complicated. Apa's are a lot more painful and irritating to heal, but look a lot neater and less penetration problems. So really its up to you.

    Yeah, you wouldnt want to use a ring for an apa, it wouldnt be comfortable at all. but if you're fine staying at just 1.6mm or 14g, then you can request PTFE, this is a little more comfortable as it's flexible and well suited for the change in size and shape of the area.

    And no $100 isn't too high for an apa, as long as that's a reputable shop in your area.

    Would it be wise to use ptfe while healing then stretch to 10 gauge?

    if you want it at 10g then just go ahead and start at 10g, it wont make much difference in healing.

    Kinda related to this post, but do you know how much more painful it it likely to be being pierced with a 10 gauge (2.4mm) needle than 14 gauge (1.6mm) needle? I'm planning on getting an Ampallang done (at 2.4 mm), and have had the reverse PA part of an Apadravya done with a 1.6mm needle, and don't recall that being too bad for pain.

    I've honestly not really noticed the difference in pain using larger gauge needles in most of my piercings, but this one is in an unusually sensitive place.

    Sorry for resurrecting the old thread.

    Nobody can answer your questions about pain. It's all subjective. But you should never let the 'idea' of pain stop you getting anything, it is never as bad as you think.
