For those who don’t know — and just for the record, I did not — the Prince Albert is a type of genital piercing. According to Wikipedia, it’s a “ring-style” piercing that runs along the glans and “meets the shaft of the penis.”

Things that can go wrong: bleeding, swelling and inflammation. It can also force a man to humiliate himself by having to urinate while sitting down.

Fun times.
