Prince Albert Hurts


Joe chooses the infamous “Prince Albert” genital piercing as his first foray into body modification. Melissa has never performed a Prince Albert on a client, but is game for anything. The Prince Albert usually takes approximately 50 seconds to complete. Joe and Melissa’s first shot becomes an 11 minutes-plus odyssey, brimming with patience, pain, humor, hope, and triumph.
