The Hafada piercing, also known as a scrotal piercing, is a genital piercing of the scrotum.
The Hafada can be placed anywhere in the area and combined with other piercings, thereby creating a Scrotal Ladder Piercing (Hafada Ladder).
The Hafada is usually not very deep, and although it is technically a surface piercing, thanks to the flexibility of the scrotum skin, the risk of it growing out is very minimal.
We generally use rings for this procedure, which can later be replaced by barbells. The Hafada piercing can also be stretched.
Depending on the wishes of the client, this piercing can be done with a ball closure ring or a barbell, in a thickness of either 1.6mm or 2.0mm. It can be stretched even further later.
The initial healing time of this piercing is 3-12 weeks. During that time we recommend that you regularly clean the affected area.
Genital piercings can take between 2 weeks and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external 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.
In the first few days following the procedure, we recommend that you abstain from sexual intercourse, or at least wear a condom if doing so.
Using urine helps the wound heal considerably more quickly.
The stimulation provided by a Hafada piercing is purely aesthetic. That said, the partner will feel the piercing during sexual intercourse, depending on how close it is to the penis shaft.
If the man opts for a Scrotal Ladder, the partner will feel it when coming into contact with the scrotum during intercourse.
The Lorum Piercing is frequently used as a Chastity Piercing in the SM (Sadomasochistic) cultural scene and is combined with a frenum piercing, in order to prevent the penis from getting erect by inserting a lock through both piercings.
A piercing which goes in the front end of the scrotum and comes out the back is called a Transscrotal piercing, given that it traverses the scrotum (but not the testes).
- Scrotal Ladder Piercings:
In many cases, more than one Hafada piercings are created consecutively or configured symmetrically in a creative manner. And when several piercings are arranged in this fashion, like the rungs of a ladder, it is known as a Scrotal Ladder (or a Hafada Ladder).
- Lorum (Low Frenum):
The Lorum is nothing other than a Hafada which is placed directly at the point where the penis shaft meets the scrotum. In other words it lies directly in the fold where the scrotum begins.
The Lorum and Frenum piercing are commonly combined with a lock in SM games, in order to prevent the man from getting an erection.
