    Was the first site I ever pinned which seems to be quite uncommon. I find it to be extremely easy without much room for complications.
    I chickened out! I was going to but couldn't go through it.

    How do you even find VG lol ?

    ventrogluteal region is great you can inject a substantial amount of gear into that spot and effortlessly too. It's a pretty common place to inject in medicine, just find a tutorial so you can hit the right place.

    I swear all of the guides are terrible! All the pictures look like they're pinning scary close to the hip lol. Just use DG and quads much easier

    Yep, all the medical guides and videos online are somewhat hard to understand. Especially since most of the injection are on regular people with little to no muscle mass. Finding the VG can be both hard and easy, depending on BF% and how well the muscle is developed.

    These are my ways of locating it,
    - stand up and shift your weight to one leg.
    - Lift the other leg up and bring it up to a 90 degree angle
    - You should see a muscle that is golfball sized (not shaped) starting to flex

    Once you get the general idea of where the location is, try to locate it seated (preferably on low seat that gets your knees very slightly above your hip crease
    - Slightly lean over to one side shifting weight to the non injection side
    - On the other side you should see the dorsogluteal pop out
    - push it a bit gauge whether or not it's actually muscle, should feel like you can stick in a 1" pin with no probs
    - foot positioning on the injection side is important. I find the muscle sticks out if I have my heel raised on that foot.

    I do mine seated, just find it way easier to do than the typical lying down procedure. I've heard of some people doing it standing, but seated just seems like the most relaxed method. If you are able to do the lying method the medical practitioners do then all the power to you.

    Maybe if the demand is there I'll make a diagram up.

    Well a lot of people pin what they think is vg but it ends up being vastus laterus or something by looking at anatomy charts

    Pretty much what Ven0 said, the below picture should help too.

    I can vouch for that! Was pinning it for several weeks before realising it wasn't what I was after! Last pin on my right side left a nasty bruise as well which wouldn't go away!

    a lot of good information here

    personally i use 25g for pinning, but have recently read up on guys using slin needles (29g-30g) 1/2inch, with no issues. Anyone have any experience with this? My worry is needle depth and oil viscosity.
