And she offers some insight into the purpose of the piercing: "He liked the idea of having one that was in proximity to his penis but not on it. He's definitely into aesthetics and how it looks, but this one also had function. It was meant to please women," she explains. "It hits the woman in the clitoris during intercourse."
