Urethral sounding is a deeply satisfying and intense experience. However, it is also a sexual activity that brings certain risks. For this reason, it is absolutely vital to stay safe during urethral play. This is why being informed and taking precautions is crucial for a safe and enjoyable urethral sounding experience.
You may be familiar with safety tips on how to minimize risks during urethral play. However, keep in mind that this isn’t when everything is done. In order to fully protect your safety and to ensure the best experience, it is also important to know what to do after sounding is done.
What to Do After Sounding?
Once you are finished with your urethral play, be it through orgasm or another mean, it is first and foremost important to remove your urethral toy safely. All urethral toys have their Dos and DON”Ts. That is, they are all designed to be inserted and removed in a specific way. Some urethral toys, such as straight penis plugs and urethral sounds, are straight. These toys can be safely inserted and removed while the penis is erect. It means that you can remove them during orgasm, to enhance the experience and enjoy specific sensations. Generally speaking, you penis does not have to be flaccid in order to remove these toys.
Other urethral toys, however, have to be inserted and removed only when the penis is flaccid. These are, first and foremost, long and curved urethral sounds and other big urethral toys. You cannot remove them safely while you are erect. To safely remove these toys, you need to wait until your erection is gone.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some toys are smoother than the others. Smooth toys are generally easier to remove than the textured ones or those with other additional features. This is another thing to keep in mind. Similarly, if your toy comes with a glans ring or is part of another composite toy, you need to know how to remove it without hurting yourself.
In short, to remove your toy safely you need to know your toy’s design and how to handle it properly. This is the step number one you need to do after sounding.
Another immediate thing to do is to urinate as soon as the toy is removed. Keep in mind that urethral play carries a certain risk of urinary tract infection so you need to minimize this risk by washing out your urethra. By urinating straight after urethral sounding you are expelling any potential bacteria that may have reached your urethra during urethral stimulation.
Finally, make sure to clean your toys fully. While it is absolutely necessary to make your toys clean and sterilized before use, it is also important to clean them after you use them. Never leave your toys dirty after urethral play is done! Simply clean them and store them at a safe place until the next time you want to enjoy urethral sounding.
- Keep in mind that you will probably experience some burning sensation after sounding, especially during urination. This is normal, especially for the beginner users who don’t have a wide urethra. This burning comes from the irritation of the urethral walls during sounding. To minimize this sensation, make sure to use plenty of lube. Keep in mind, however, that burning is almost impossible to completely eliminate.
- Remember, only some burning is normal. If you experience pain and excessive discomfort during urination or at any point, it is a warning sign. If you experience these problems it is highly advisable to seek medical advice.
- Cleaning is particularly important if you use urethral toys for couples’ play and if you share your sounds.
Burning sensations and painful sounding are sometimes used in BDSM so they are great for those who enjoy intensity or even pain. That being said, it is important to stay safe throughout urethral play, no matter how strong you wish to make it.
