The name Fourchette Piercing comes from the French word for “fork”, and is a particularly beautiful and straightforward type of genital piercing.

The Fourchette is performed at the end of the vagina. Where the outer and inner labia meet at the opening of the vagina there is a small flap of skin, and that is where the Fourchette piercing is placed.

The piercing canal runs vertically through the perineum.

This piercing does not come into contact with the woman’s anus. Also, it is not placed inside but outside the vagina.

Origin of the name:

Fourchette is French for “fork”, and refers to the position of the piercing at the fork between the vagina and the perineum.


This piercing is largely dependent on the anatomy of the woman and cannot always be carried out. Many women simply do not possess the additional flap of skin in the rear vaginal vestibule or at the entrance of the vagina.

If the flap of skin is present, the piercing can be carried out without difficulty. The best option is to use a thicker ring from the start, minimizing the risk of it being torn out later.

If and where it is ultimately placed will depend on the customer’s anatomy and is discussed in detail with the piercer beforehand.

In many cases the Fourchette is possible, even though the customer doesn’t think it is, based on her own inspection of her anatomy.


The Fourchette Piercing generally heals very quickly and there are rarely any complications, since it is in constant contact with urine. Approximately 3-4 weeks are needed for the initial healing stage.

Genital piercings can take between 2 weeks and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself. By caring for the piercing in the correct manner and with the proper materials, you will rarely have to deal with cases of proud flesh.

Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided.

When it comes to having sexual intercourse following the piercing we do not advise you against it, but usually people wait a couple of days before resuming normal sexual relations or stimulating the area in question.

Because of its proximity to the anus, you need to ensure even greater hygiene than usual during the healing phase. Therefore, when wiping yourself, ALWAYS do so AWAY from the genital area to avoid contaminating the piercing.


As jewelry we recommend a curved barbell or a ball closure ring with a thickness of at least 2.0mm.

Many customers choose to stretch the Fourchette Piercing to 3 – 4mm and find this to be very pleasurable. The ring diameter, however, is kept quite small, that is between 8 – 10mm.

Some customers prefer a banana bar or a bar instead of a ring. It is simply a question of exploring possibilities.


It stimulates both parties during intercourse and therefore provides powerful vaginal orgasms.

The piercing can be very pleasurable when performing daily tasks as well, like sitting on an office chair and sliding back and forth. But not to worry, this can also be regulated by varying the type of clothing or jewelry worn.

Overall, the women who’ve gotten this piercing have reported gratifying results.

PS: The piercing does not interfere with daily movements or sexual intercourse.


Either the anus piercing, the female Guiche piercing, or the Suitcase piercing.
