Popular Types of Urethral Sounds

There are several popular types of urethral sounds you can use for sexual stimulation. Some of them are ideal for beginner users while others are best suited for experts. If you buy a sound set you will get 4-6 (sometimes even more) sounds of varying sizes so you can use them to achieve different sensations. They are also suitable for different experience levels.

Hegar Sounds

Hegar sounds have a slightly curved S shape. These are double-ended sounds and they have two different diameters on each end. The shape is anatomical, which makes these sounds easy to insert and use. These sounds are relatively short and mildly curved. The design and shape make them one of the best urethral sounds for inexperienced users.

Hegar sound sets typically contain 4-6 sounds of varying sizes. The smallest ones are suitable even for beginners, while the largest ones are about thumb-sized in thickness.

Hegar sounds are usually very affordable, which makes them great for everybody, especially those who wish to start experimenting.

If you’re looking for your first sound to try urethral stimulation and see if this sort of play is for you, a quality Hegar sound is probably the best choice for you. Choose a thin, non-intimidating sound. In case you have a sound set, make sure to use the thinnest and smallest sound in the set for your first sounding sessions.

These sounds are also suitable for female anatomy, so even ladies can try them and experience urethral stimulation.

Rosebud Sounds

Rosebud sounds are simple in shape. They consist of a long, thin rod and a bulbous end. The rod can also be inserted into the urethra. The bullet-shaped tip is specially designed to stimulate the urethra. The design resembles bullet vibrators and anal beads for a reason: it is made to provide pleasurable pressure and to stimulate your sensitive spots.

Both men and women can enjoy these sounds. Rosebud sounds are great for beginners because they are easy to insert and use, even if a penis is erect. They come in varying sizes of both the rod and the tip, so you can achieve different sensations.

Dittle Sounds

Much like Rosebud sounds, Dittle sounds have a thin, straight rod with a special end. They have a flat end and a rounded end. Instead of bulbous, bullet-like end of a Rosebud sounds, Dittle sounds have a special flat end. There are many different sizes of these sounds, so you may choose the one that suits your needs.

These sounds are suitable for both beginners and more experienced users. There are also special beginner’s Pratt sound sets made for novice users. There are no curves so these sounds are easy to insert and take out even if your penis is erect.

Van Buren

Van Buren sounds are among the most popular urethral sounds among experienced users. They have a characteristic J shape and they are typically long. These sounds are made to match a man’s urethral tract, which makes them fit a male body perfectly.

Van Buren sounds have a characteristic pronounced curve at each end. This curve is specially designed to reach the bladder and can be used for bladder stimulation or even P spot stimulation. The curved tip can be used for stimulating prostate gland from inside the bladder and experiencing amazing sensations.

It’s important to emphasize that the Van Buren sounds should be used only while the penis is soft. It means that once you get aroused with the sound inside your penis, you need to wait until your erection is gone before you take the sound out.

Pratt Sounds

Pratt sounds are double ended and they have a more defined curve than Hegar sounds. They usually have a different size on each end, which means that one sound can give you two different sensations. These sounds have rounded, slightly bent ends.

These sounds are typically longer than the other models. It’s not unusual for them to be almost a foot long. The length and pronounced curve of Pratt sounds allow you to insert them deeply inside penis, which allows for deep urethral and bladder stimulation. These sounds are suitable for both men and women who wish to enjoy this type or erotic play.

Remember to Keep Your Sounds Clean

Another thing you need to worry about is sterility of your urethral sounds. It’s crucial for a successful procedure and keeping yourself safe. As you probably know, sounding carries a certain risk of infection, so it has to be done carefully and with a sanitized urethral sound.

Sterile tools are important for several reasons. First of all, they prevent urinary tract infections and they keep bacteria and other harmful agents away of the body. Also, sanitizing your sounds is important for preventing STDs, especially if more than one person uses the sound.

To make the procedure safe and completely hygienic, it’s also important to keep your body clean. You should wash your hands and body (especially your penis) before the urethral play. Same goes for your partner or any person who will come in touch with your genitalia or urethral sounds.

After the urethral play is finished, it’s important to clean up your toys and store them safely for the next time. In case you have a set of urethral sounds, keep them in their original package. Those sets come in a handy bag or another suitable package which is specially made for storing sounds. These packages keep the sounds neatly organized and allow for easy choice of a sound you want to use. They are also great for travelling and they are discreet enough so nobody will know you’re using urethral sounds unless you tell them.

  1. great article except for one HUGE mistake. everybody reading this who is interested in sounds: do NOT pick the smallest sound first!!!!!!!! it may seem less scary to try a thin sound before you move up, but you should pick the size closest to your urethral opening ALWAYS. you could cause some serious damage to your urethral passage and leave tiny injuries inside of the urethral tract by scraping around in there with a sound that’s too thin and wiggly!!!!! sounds awful to have lacerations/punctures in there, right?? remember go with the size closest to your urethral opening when sounding, and move up from there!!! don’t go small!!!! other than that it’s pretty good info 🙂

  2. Absolutely agree with the last post. Do NOT use the smallest sound, usual advice using Hegar sounds is to start with the third smallest sound. Smaller sounds are easier & more likely to penetrate the urethral wall.

  3. With a thin sound there is the danger that the urethral wall perforated or a skin fold caught. For sounds under 9 mm be very careful.

  4. Yes, it is moving forward. I now always start to stretch the meat at 17 mm, and rise to 18 mm. Since I’m now stretching to reach 19 mm. On the prostate I pass by 11.5 mm. It is a nice feeling to push the Hegar Dilator 19cm into the prostate. After half an hour I push a 12 mm dilator. Then I leave the dilator 1-2 hours inserted. After that, I always masturbate beautifully and ejaculate. I always climb in 0.5 mm steps. A big jump takes about 2-3 months with two to three exercise units per week. I started with a diameter of 6 mm.
