Hi! I got a PA piercing 2 weeks ago, mostly because I want to get a chastity cage that incorporates this piercing for better security. Though I already read hours and hours on different chastity related sites, I feel there should be a Chastity with PA Piercing FAQ as I still have so many uncertainties and I wish there would be a FAQ for me, others and especially newbies. A/N: I'll try to answer the following questions in all conscience but I'd love to hear from you if something is wrong, should be corrected or added. As I said, I'm still quite unsure on many topics. Q: How long does the PA need to heal until I can use it with a chastity cage? A: A PA piercing initially needs up to 6 weeks to completely heal. I read from people using it with a cage immediately after that healing time, others waited some more months (see below). Q: Which PA ring size (thickness) is needed to securely use it with a chastity cage? A: You get pierced with 2.4mm or 3mm (approx. 10 gauge or 8 gauge). Most people say the PA generally becomes more comfortable and resilient when stretched to at least 4mm (6 gauge). Hence I wouldn't recommend using a freshly pierced PA (neither after the 6 weeks healing time) with a chastity cage, but rather stretch it to at least 4mm (6 gauge) and let this stabilize for some more weeks. Q: Cleaning and care of the PA piercing with a chastity cage? A: During the healing process the PA piercing should be sprayed with an antiseptic spray and moved around twice a day. I don't know if moving around is still necessary after completed healing. Most PA-hooks (like from Steelworxx, Rigidchastity, Male Chastity Now) are locked in place and hence not movable anymore. If some movement should be necessary for good hygiene, one would have to take off the whole chastity cage every day or at least once a week. I can imagine this being a no-go for some (including me), so a cage design where one's own PA-ring can be hooked up would be advisable (though not as secure again)? Q: How long does it take from getting a PA to using it with a chastity cage? A: Initial healing time is 6 weeks. Assuming that a 4mm (6 gauge) piercing is advisable and regarding the advises from the APP (Association of Professional Piercers) below, starting from a 2.4mm (10 gauge) means 4 times stretching, starting from a 3mm (8 gauge) piercing means 2 times stretching, with each stretching taking several weeks to months (let's assume at least 6 weeks) again. So in total: at least 18 to 30 weeks until you reach 4mm (6 gauge) and you have a stabilized piercing to use with a cage. I'd love to hear from you pierced guys about your experiences.
