The "Fourchette" is also a relatively rare female genital piercing of the posterior fourchette that's glossary defines as a "rear labial piercing". There seems to be some debate in the question/answer department (QOD) about the type of piercing/jewellery (curved barbell vs surface piercing) appropriate for this procedure. A high rejection rate is also mentioned.
