The device used in sounding is known as the sound. The device is inserted into the urethra at the tip of the penis. When inserted correctly the tip of the sound will rest close to the prostate and with manipulation will provide enhanced sensations to the user of the device. The history of the sound is that it was created to be used after a male contracted gonorrhea. The device would open the urethra so the male would have an easier way to urinate due to scarring brought on from the disease. Today, it is used as a male sex toy instead of medical purposes.
To use a sound the male needs to lie on his back with a soft penis. You should not use a sound if the penis is hard. If the penis becomes hard, the sound should stay in place until the penis is soft again. Always ensure the sound is sterile and use a bit of lubrication such as KY jelly. It is best to use a packet instead of using a tube of KY that can have germs from using over and over again. The packages of KY are just enough to lubricate the sound without any worries of germs that can bring infection.
Never push or force the sound into place. The tip of the sound will fall into place due to the weight. Using one hand, hold the handle and guide the sound while the other hand holds the penis. The plane of the sound handle should be perpendicular to the plane of the curve on the sound.
Prior to inserting the sound, learn as much as you can about the shape, the location of the handle as well as the curve. The sound should insert easily into place and once in the correct location should be comfortable.
Once the sound is in place, it will need support. Sounds are heavy and may fall over which can cause damage if not supported properly. After the sound is in place, just a bit of gentle movement such as tapping the handle will provide pleasure. Often a vibrator can be used for added pleasure.Read More
