Many of us are now expecting the couple to announce the name of their new baby today when the provide the first glimpse of the new royal. Albert has now become one of the favourites to be the new name of the royal baby , along with Alexander, James and Arthur. A Prince Albert is a piercing of the penis, in which a metal ring is pierced through the skin at the tip of the penis. The ring begins almost straight to pierce through the penis, and is then bent with pliers to create a rounded ring shape. The piercing enters at the frenulum and exits at the urethra, going through the urethral meatus. Some people like to attach fun little accoutrements to their Prince Albert ring, such as a Dragonfly — six plastic barbells arranged like the rings of a dragonfly.

Genital piercings have become increasingly popular among men and women alike in recent years, with Prince Albert piercings also known as a PA piercings topping the list of most desirable male genital piercings. This piercing is popular among men of all ages for aesthetic and sexual reasons alike, but is it the right male genital piercing for you? If you're considering getting a Prince Albert piercing or just want to better understand how these piercings work, you first need to learn how PA piercings are placed and decide on the type of PA piercing and Prince Albert jewelry that will be best for you and your partner. A Prince Albert piercing is traditionally placed through the underside of the penile shaft, towards the head of the penis. A piercing needle is passed up into the urethra, followed by Prince Albert piercing jewelry, which then protrudes out through the head of the penile shaft. Traditional PA piercings are most likely to stimulate a female partner during intercourse from behind "doggy style" , because that position puts the bottom ball in direct contact with a woman's G-spot.
How did the Prince Albert piercing get its name?
The Prince Albert PA is one of the most common male genital piercings. While some piercers may choose to avoid the nerve bundle that runs along the center of the frenulum altogether, others may choose otherwise. Otherwise, the piercing must be done off-centre so that the surrounding skin can reposition itself. The Prince Albert healing time can take from 4 weeks  to 6 months. Some PA wearers report it enhances sexual pleasure for both partners. As with many piercings, there is risk of the jewelry becoming caught on clothing and being pulled or torn out. Prince Albert piercings are typically pierced at either 12 or 10 g 2 or 2. One of the reasons not to perform the initial piercing at a small diameter 16g or 14g or otherwise to immediately stretch it to 10g or 8g using a taper is to prevent the 'cheese-cutter effect',  although personal preference and individual anatomy also play a role in these decisions. Further stretching to sizes 0 or 00g 8 or 9mm and larger is not uncommon. While most wearers find that PAs are comfortable to wear and rarely remove them, even during sex, some individuals have found that extremely large or heavy jewelry is uncomfortable to wear for long periods or interferes with the sexual functioning of the penis.
He was best known for his semi-abstract monumental bronze sculptures which are located around the world as public works of art. His forms are usually abstractions of the human figure, typically depicting mother-and-child or reclining figures. Moore's works are usually suggestive of the female body, apart from a phase in the s when he sculpted family groups. His forms are generally pierced or contain hollow spaces. Many interpreters liken the undulating form of his reclining figures to the landscape and hills of his birthplace, Yorkshire. Moore was born in Castleford, the son of a coal miner. He became well-known through his carved marble and larger-scale abstract cast bronze sculptures and was instrumental in introducing a particular form of modernism to the United Kingdom. His ability in later life to fulfil large-scale commissions made him exceptionally wealthy.
