Clever clip-on jewellery allow you to glam up the family jewels
– and other bits too – without the pain.
So you want to wear jewelry on your genitals, but you’re not
sure about the whole piercing thing.
As problems go, perhaps that one is not very common. But for what
it’s worth, there is an alternative to sticking a needle through
your private parts.
Because of sensitivities to piercing, Deborah Gibson had to make
do with those few orifices provided by nature. Luckily her partner,
a former welder, came up with another way of gussying up her bits.
“He made a piece of jewelry for my birthday that went breast
to breast and down to my navel and down even lower,” Gibson
recalls. “We went out and people were literally trying to
buy it off my body. That was when we knew we had something other
people would be interested in as well. It wasn’t just our
fact, so many people share the desire to feel gold and silver on
their most sensitive parts that Gibson and her lover, Bud Dunbar,
successfully launched a small erotic jewelry business. Arabesque
Body Creations & Design was born in Edmonton, but the owners
recently moved to B.C. where the weather is better suited to their
passion for naturism.
“The whole idea behind our jewelry is that you can wear it
in some very interesting places,” Gibson says. “You
can wear it for stimulation and sexual pleasure. You can wear it
just because it is really nice jewelry. It really does become an
intimate part of a lot of people’s self-expression.”
Adds Dunbar: “The most popular ones we make would be the
nipple and clitoral pieces. They just squeeze into place.”
OK, two things: first off, that sounds painful. And secondly,
wouldn’t the pieces tend to dislodge at the, well, most inopportune
the clitoral jewelry, the main part of the form is shaped more or
less like a hairpin,” Dunbar explains. “It slides on
much the same way. There’s no inner spring pressure on it.
You size it, so it’s a nice firm hold.”
As for pieces that go above the waist… “You size the
ring slightly smaller than the girl’s nipple and then you
suck her nipple through the ring.”
Some of Arabesque’s customers say that sensation is incredibly
sexy. The owner of one outlet says she has trouble keeping Arabesque
pieces in stock.
“It’s kind of like the gift when you’ve already
got all the lingerie and lots of the toys,” she says. “And
they are actually very beautiful, with real gold and sterling silver.
They also help for women who have inverted nipples or things like
that. They can get the pieces on and then tighten them to keep their
nipples more erect.”

The company also makes intimate jewelry for men, such as Ball
Fetters and Penis
Circlets. Dunbar says he’s never heard of anyone having
an embarrassing encounter with a metal detector while trying to
board an airplane.
“With the male jewelry, on of the things we use as a selling
feature is, because the rings are basically a spiral or braided
or twisted silver, instead of wearing it on your penis walking through
the airport you can open it up and use it as a bracelet.”
