What is a “Dydoe”?
A Dydoe is a type of piercing done on the penis’ head and on the ridge of the glans on the male genitalia.
The word ‘dydoe’ was derived from the term “doodad”. Doodad means an “embellishment that is decorative in nature”. In order to produce a dydoe piercing, the male genital is punctured using a straight needle. A cork is attached to the needle to push the needle into the appendage or skin.
Despite piercing a considerably low mass of tissue, this piercing can still be quite painful for the reason that several nerve endings are situated along the punctured area.
The resulting appearance of a dydoe piercing is four dots situated across each other along the head and upper part of the penis and the glans.
Dydoe piercing is not as popular and common as its other counterparts. This is because dydoe is not suitable for all anatomical structures of the male genitals. The best type of accessory to go with a dydoe is curved barbells, particularly those with either a 12 gauge or 14 gauge curve.
Dos, Don’ts & Tips
- As for aftercare for a newly done dydoe piercing, sexual intercourse and stimulation should be gentle and not rough.
- Washing the puncture with saline regularly and wrapping it with a clean, sterilized gauze prevents it from getting injuries and infections.
- At times, the jewelry placed on the piercing may move or migrate.
- When not monitored closely, allowing the jewelry to move freely may make the person lose their piercing completely.
- If there are any abnormalities observed, the jewelry should be taken off immediately. Seek professional intervention and help soon after.
