Why Is It Called a Prince Albert?

Answer

The Prince Albert piercing was named after Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert of England. It is said that he got it prior to his wedding to the queen in 1825. This piercing is done under the penis, in the centre of the v-shape formed by the glands. It takes anywhere between 2 to 4 months to heal. At that time there was a craze for ultra tight men?s trousers. Because the pants were so tight, the penis needed to be held to one side so as not to create an unsightly bulge. To accomplish this some men had their penis pierced to allow it to be held by a hook on the inside of the trousers, this piercing was called a Dressing Ring at the time because tailors would ask if a gentleman dressed to the left or the right and tailor the trousers accordingly. This piercing is reputed to be very effective for sex,that is why it is the most popular male genital piercing. It provides greater stimulation to both partners during sex.
