In a bid to satisfy women, men are popping pearls into their penises to help them pleasure women. Genital beading involves the insertion of 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. This bizarre sex trend is becoming increasingly prevalent in Cuba, Australia and the Philippines.
It’s most common among young men in the military, sailors and convicts. However, Doctors warn that the procedure can cause tetanus, banality or gangrene – which in serious cases could lead to the penis being amputated.
Aside the glaring medical risks, there’s also the possibility that your partner won’t enjoy the sensation of the pearl just like some people don’t like the feel of ribbed condoms or sex toys. “There are women who like pearled penises and women who find them anything from uncomfortable and unattractive to painful.
“The same way some women like dildos with beads and some women do not, pearls aren't for all girls. “If a woman does enjoy pearled penises, they may be able to increase the chances of or enhance orgasm depending on where the pearls are placed and where the woman experiences the vaginal pleasure.
