    I am travelling through Europe in a few months time and I am unsure as to whether I should remove my Prince Albert (piercing on the tip of my penis) before going through airport security. My last stop is Israel, where security is quite thorough. Does anyone else have any advive: Should I just remove it for the entire trip, or is it undetectable on the metal detectors?

    I don't want to run the risk of having to remove it at the airport in front of a red-faced security officer, but if I don't wear it the piercing will narrow.

    Good question. In my experience I've ever had an issue going through a meal detector with it on for international flights. If you're concerned, however, you may be more comfortable by changing your ring out during your travel and replacing it with a glass 'retainer', which is more low profile, not metal, will not interact negatively with the PH of your urine, and wil maintain your piercing hole gauge from closing up, which happens surprisingly quickly. You should get them in your gauge size; I'd recommend you remove it when your using lube products while haivng sex as the lube will cause the O-ring to slide off, and your spacer may end up where you don't intend it to, like someone's stomach, or lost in the sheets. Oh, and word up in anticipatory guidance' take along about a dozen extra rubber O-rings. If your not used to it you may loose a couple of them. have fun. icon_wink.gif

    i was up to a 2ga horseshoe PA at one point. it never set off any metal detectors ANYWHERE. icon_smile.gif

    so i think you will be ok. as calibro commented..if an ear ring won't set off gongs and lights; why should a PA?

    i took the 2 ga PA out for about for a 4 day weekend..by the time i TRIED to slip it back in the bottom hole and shrunk enough that i had to downsize. icon_confused.gif

    i was ready to go down anyway...the 2 ga PA was a visual stunner but was somewhat uncomfortable for my last FB. :whatever:

    stainless steel does not set off detectors, and the hole will not narrow after just one or two days unless it is a new piercing. like Ismelvan said, take it out the day you are flying and put it back in as soon as you get there.

    I think we should take a closer examination of this to finger out the problem. Contrasts and comparisons. icon_razz.gificon_lol.gif

    stainless steel will not set off any detectors... if that were the case, my nipple piercings would make the detectors at work go crazy!

    My nipple ring or medical implant NEVER set off security walk through metal detectors, only the hand help ones.
    but even if you remove it for the entire trip, it will narrow some but never seal shut. Just sit when you pee or you will spray......lol.

    As a frequent traveler, I have a certain "uniform" and process for getting checked in and through security with the least hassles.

    As far as what I wear, I avoid anything with clunky metal (i.e. belts, necklaces, bracelets). I have a PA, but do not wear it through security. I wear shoes that are "easy off / easy on". I have my laptop computer out, my liquids in the bag, my shoes off when I hit the front of the security line.

    Even the order in which I put things on the x-ray is all designed to make my process quicker: Shoes and liquids first in one bin. Laptop computer in second bin. Briefcase/Laptop bag next. Carry on backpack last.

    When I pass through the detector, I usually don't have any problems because I plan in advance not to wear anything that will cause me delay.

    Once I'm through, I put the shoes on my feet (I tie the laces once I get out of the security screening area). Grab the liquids. Grab the laptop, which goes immediately into the briefcase. Then grab my carry on (backpack). I exit the security area and tie my shoes. I then take my belt out of my carry on and put that on.

    For international travel, consider what may be on your laptop computer in regards to encryption products and any "entertainment" or controversial content. It may be illegal to leave the U.S. with certain "strong encryption" products, and it may be illegal to bring those same encryption products, or controversial content, into your destination country.

    Know before you go.

    Aloha and Be Well!

    You can buy lucite jewelry. I wouldn't try to pass through security in Israel with steel jewelry in. I've been stopped by USA TSA before for small gauge jewelry.
