I suppose it could and I'm sure somewhere it's happened but it really shouldn't. I know a few guys who have their genitals pierced, one has the head of his penis and the other has it farther back and they both use condoms just fine. I'd think as long as you didn't have a barbell with a spike or something on it (and ouch! Why on earth would you want a spike on it??) it would be able to stretch. But since I have no personal experience I will say I'm not even 95% sure.

According to a friend of mine who is a professional piercer, no, there is generally no problem with condoms and genital piercings. The jewelry used in genital piercings is engineered to be very smooth, very easy to clean, very hypoallergenic, and generally has only round, smooth surfaces. It's just not likely to break anything, nor is it likely to snag -- think about it, if it's the kind of thing that would snag latex and break it, it would be very safe to use on or in human skin, either, would it?
Also, bear in mind that most jewelry in genital piercings is really fairly small. It's not like hanging a combination lock off of the end of your bits or something like that.
Chiming in with the personal experience aspect, I've had a few male lovers with Prince Albert piercings, and a female lover with labial piercings, and neither ever caused a problem with condoms. Most piercings are smooth and self-contained.

I have had a few lovers with genital piercings. I found no problem using condoms during intercourse, but I did find that even with a condom the piercings would hit my teeth during oral sex on a man. Not enough to hurt, but enough for it to be a bit difficult to do. I have not found it a problem though for oral sex on a woman.
