Sounding - Male Sexual Pleasure
By Anita Payton
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.
Not all sounds have curves on the end, but are inserted in the same fashion with the penis at different angles.
The most popular sounds on the market today include the Drill, The Striker Urethral Sound, Inner Demon Urethral Sound, Ribbed Urethral Sound, and the Vibrating Urethral Sound. There are also kits for the beginners, which include the Hegar Urethral Sounds kit and the Pratt Urethral Beginners Sound kit. This is only a few of the most popular sounds available today. There are other sex toys such as the penis plug, which are used in a similar way. Discovering more about the various sex toys available for male stimulation will help you decide if a sound is the best choice. There are even several different toys that can be used at the same time as the sound to heighten sexual pleasure.
If you are up for the adventure, you should do your homework and learn more about the way sounds work and the proper way of inserting. Follow the directions for positioning as well as safety.
Experimentation is always exciting, however, if you do not use any sex toy in the way it was meant to be used, there could be damage to the internal muscles of the penis or other organs. It is always best to read the instructions and follow them to avoid dangerous situations. Sex toys and male stimulation gadgets are wonderful ways to heighten and enhance sexual pleasure, but you must ensure you are using the device in the proper way.
