Lenny Kravitz’s Dick Piercing Is For A Woman’s Pleasure (NSFW)

When Lenny Kravitz’s penis was freed from its leather pants prison last week, and the hullabaloo died down, the internet was abuzz with one particular question: Is that a dick piercing or a cock ring or just a weird light reflection on the camera lens?

Mashable talked to Elayne Angel, who pierced Lenny’s penis, as well as his nipples, back in the ’90s, about seeing her work make headline new. “The piercing still looks happy, healthy and very sturdy,” Angel said. “I was proud to see it still alive and kicking.” That’s one way to describe it…

“It hits the woman in the clitoris during intercourse,” Angel explained. “He’s definitely a giver.”

Kravitz himself cosigns its purpose. In a 2004 interview, Kravitz explained of his piercing, “I’ve never taken it out. It’s a hoop about the size of a quarter. It hits the lady where she likes it and, because it swings, it can be effective in any position.” You don’t say…
