The piercing from just below the head of the penis and upwards, through the ridge of flesh around the cock head.
Usually a piercing from just below the fleshy ridge of the Penis Head, that then goes upwards through the actual Glanis (fleshy part of the penis, not the urethra) of the penis.
History (Legend): Multiple Dydoe piercing is believed to enhance the sensitivity of the penis during intercourse, hence it supposed popularity among circumcised males, who may feel that the loss of the foreskin has desensitized their feelings.
While there is no proof that it does enhance feelings, the possibility exists due to the added pressure of the bars against the Penis Head during intercourse, further constricting it, thus heightening one's sensitivity.
It replicates, in a manner of speaking the foreskin, in that it tightens as the organ becomes aroused.
A sterilized needle is generally used in the procedure, to poke a hole through beginning just under the ridge of flesh of the penis head. This is then pushed up and through the actual 'Glanis' of the penis, an area with a high concentration of nerve endings.
This procedure is considered to be one of the more painful types of Genital Piercing.
Healing is generally 4 to 6 months. That is complete healing.
Removal of the Jewelry for any length of time can cause the hole to close up, and re-insertion is also considered to be an extremely painful process, even after healing.
Abstinence from sex, specially intercourse is recommended as well, following this simple but painful procedure.
Practice (Associated Acts): Multiple Piercing of this region, around the head is known as 'King's Crown' due to the appearance of the jewelry in a ring, similar in fashion to a Crown.
Noteworthy: Normally this type of piercing is for circumcised males.
The reason being that the presence of foreskin keeps the pierced area moist which inhibits proper healing. It can also lead to infection.
