Pubic piercings are the closest thing you can get to an actual genital piercing without going all the way. After all, there's something incredibly sexy about the power of suggestion. And what could be more evocative (or provocative) than a piercing on your pubic area, where it's just above your privates? Pubic piercings will definitely make a clear statement, and you'll love the boost in confidence. It can be something fun and unexpected that you can show off, especially if you don't have other more visible piercings. While we wouldn't exactly call pubic piercings a functional piercing - your sexual partner might beg to differ though.
