Penis Piercing Tool / Ampallang palang traditional cultural penis piercing tool

In many extreme cases, this is the most outstanding body piercing by the Iban people of Borneo. In fact, I see so many Western countries doing the palang these days and this is how it works:

The term Palang translates as Crossbar in Iban. However, such similarity can be seen on timber roof supports of their traditional longhouses. Thus, it symbolizes the rank and power of that particular man in his community.

The Iban men had been practicing such piercing method for many centuries. However, Not only as body jewelry or Ampalang. BUT more importantly to increase sexual pleasure.
