It is not unusual to get caught in the moment during urethral play. After all, urethral stimulation can be very arousing and pleasurable. This is why it’s not surprising that many people take things a bit too far. Keep in mind that urethral play can leave you sore or in pain if you are not careful. This is why it’s so important to know when it’s enough of urethral play.
When it’s Enough of Urethral Play: The Warning Signs
Urethral play is very pleasurable and intense. It is not surprising that so many people enjoy it on a regular basis. If you are careful, you will be able to avoid common risks and problems that may happen during urethral play.
However, it is not always that easy to tell. First of all, a lot of urethral play is on the border between pleasure and pain, so you might be enjoying yourself a lot and underestimating the pain. Also, many people simply get caught in the moment so much that they don’t notice warning signs.
This is why it’s so important to pay attention and listen to your body. Yes, it’s easy to get caught in the moment but you need to know when it’s enough of urethral play so you can stop.
Here are the top 4 warning signs that you need to pay attention to:
- Sharp Pain
Sharp pain is the number one warning sign that you need to know about. While some pain might be a regular part of your urethral play, a sudden, sharp pain is always a bad news. If this happens to you it is important to stop immediately and take the toy out. Sharp pain is often a sign of injuries to urethra or another serious problem so you should never ignore it. Since it is serious, it’s important to stop your urethral play if you experience this issue. You should also act quickly and consult your doctor, particularly if you notice other problems, such as bleeding.
Some burning sensation during urethral stimulation is not uncommon, particularly with newbies. Also, you may expect some burning during urination after the urethral play. These are not serious warning signs on their own, but you need to monitor the level of burning. This should stop relatively quickly (until the next morning the latest) and should not get worse. If you experience sudden burning during urethral play this is a sign that should tell you when it’s enough of urethral play. Burning alone is usually not the worst sign of troubles but it might mean that you are overworking your urethra. Try giving it a bit of a rest before you practice urethral play again.
Bleeding is another warning sign you should watch for, particularly if it’s accompanied by pain. Sometimes, mild bleeding will happen as a result of regular yet over vigorous urethral play. If it’s just a few drops of blood without pain and if it stops quickly it might mean a simpler problem that you can solve by not practicing urethral play for a while. Alternatively, you may wish to be gentle during urethral stimulation. However, it is always best to check any bleeding with a doctor. If you also experience pain or if bleeding gets worse, make sure to seek medical help immediately.
- Prolonged Discomfort
Some discomfort is normal with urethral play, but it should not follow you long after you are done with sounding. If you experience this discomfort, or if it starts at the beginning of a session, this might be a sign that you are over working your urethra. Try using gentler toys or not performing urethral play so vigorously. It is also a good idea to give your urethra a few days to rest between sessions.
