Thin Urethral Toys are NOT Good for Beginners

The Danger of Thin Urethral ToysUrethral sounding can be very fun for both beginners and more experienced users. However, if you are a novice, it is important to be very careful and to go slowly. Before you are able to take the long, thick urethral toys and deep sounds, you need to train and stretch your urethra. In fact, chances are that you will need to do that even for shorter toys, such as penis plugs.

Many penis plugs are ribbed or come with other features made for additional stimulation. It makes the experience more arousing and exciting. However, it also means more pressure on your urethra, so these toys are reserved for more experienced users. You will need to do some urethral stretching and training before you are able to take those toys and enjoy them to the fullest.

As a general rule, beginner users should stay away from big, thick urethral toys. The reason is obvious: your urethra is just not ready for these toys yet. You will need to use smaller and thinner toys made for beginners. At the same time, it’s important to remember that the thinnest toys are not always the best for newbies! In fact, novice users should stay away from the thinnest urethral sounds and plugs as much as they need to stay away from the big, thick ones.

Why is that? Simply put, the thinnest toys are just too narrow and thin so they can slip easily and tear up the tissue. They tend to be sharp, which can cause injuries and other problems. This is why you actually need to be experienced in order to know how to use these toys properly.

The Danger of Thin Urethral Toys

Very thin urethral toys can be a lot of fun, if you know how to use them. They are great for targeted stimulation and often offer a different type of feeling and intensity than the thicker toys. Also, they tend to feel sharper even when they are completely smooth, which adds to the arousal during use. However, in order to experience all of these effects to the fullest, you need to have some experience with urethral toys. When used incorrectly, thin urethral toys can bring a lot of harm.

If a toy is much smaller than the urethral opening, it can slip in easily – too easily. It means it’s difficult to control and it can tear the tissue before you catch it. Urethral tissue is very gentle and can tear easily, creating false passages. Those false passages are tears and holes in the urethra created by a toy or another instrument. They are very, very painful and bring a lot of problems. While they can be cured it requires immediate medical attention and it’s a slow and painful process. In order to prevent this you will need to make sure not to damage your urethral tissue. One of the ways to do it is to avoid overly thin urethral toys, at least until you get more experience and learn how to use them properly.

Which Toys are Safe for Beginners?

This depends on your anatomy and the size of your urethra. What is “too small” for one man may be ideal for another, so you need to be careful. Generally speaking, an appropriate toy is the one that is not smaller than your urethral opening. When inserted, a toy should fit the width of your urethra perfectly.

As a beginner, you will find that the toys that fit your urethra are among the smaller ones in the kit or the thinner ones in general. That is ok – you are supposed to use smaller toys at first, until you stretch and train your urethra. The important thing is not to use too small of a toy. Its width should not be smaller than your urethra and it should not slip in easily.

A too wide and big of a toy will be impossible to insert without pain, so it’s a clear sign you do need a smaller toy. However, a toy that is too thin will slip without seemingly any problem at first, which can be a warning sign because it’s so easy to hurt your urethral tissue if you use that one.

So, to stay on the safer side, beginners are advised to avoid the thinnest urethral toys out there. Use one that is small and comfortable, yes, but it should not be too thin for your urethra.

How to Stretch Urethra for the First Time

Stretch UrethraUrethral stimulation is still considered somewhat rare and almost taboo, so there is not enough information available to those who are interested in trying it for the first time. This lack of information can make the whole learning process more difficult, not to mention dangerous. So, how to stretch urethra safely?

Keep in mind: urethral stimulation is very exciting, arousing and rewarding, but it’s important to be informed about it in order to make the experience completely safe. For this reason, it is absolutely important to know how to approach urethral stimulation.

First things first: if you are interested in trying this type of stimulation, you will need to know how to stretch your urethra.

Why do you need stretching?

You might wonder if stretching your urethra is really necessary. After all, the urethral canal is already there and there are small urethral toys made for beginners, right? Well, you need to understand that an untrained urethra is typically very small and narrow. It makes inserting objects difficult or even uncomfortable.

For this reason, it is strongly advised to stretch your urethra before you truly start practicing urethral stimulation and using toys for pleasure. This stretching process, also known as “training” is a good way to get to know your body and understand how urethra should be treated. Training is also a perfect opportunity to find out what feels good and what you find pleasurable. So fear not: while urethral stretching and training can be a somewhat time-consuming process, it is also sexy and pleasurable, so chances are that you will enjoy every minute of it!

There are several things you can do to stretch your urethra, and some are better and safer than the others. Whatever you do, it’s important to be informed and to know the potential dangers that may arise. Urethral stretching is a very pleasurable activity but it’s not something you want to do without being informed about it!

Bad Ways – Do NOT Do This!

So, let’s discuss those good and bad ways to stretch your urethra. Let’s start with some very bad ideas, such as:

  • Inserting random objects into your urethra, “just to test the feeling”. Items such as pens or knitting needles should never go anywhere near your penis. It is dangerous to even think about it.
  • Inserting dirty fingers into your urethra. While using your pinky finger with lots of lube is not dangerous, it’s important that your hands are completely clean. Never insert anything into your urethra unless it’s properly cleaned!
  • Trying to insert something without lube. Proper lubrication is vital for a success! It is advisable to use lots of lube to help you out. Keep in mind that the lube you use has to be sterile.
  • Inserting unclean toys. Any toy you use should be properly sterilized and clean. The same goes for your hands or your partner’s hands – any body part that comes in contact with your penis or a toy has to be perfectly clean!
  • Using too large toys to stretch. You have to start small and build your way from there.
  • Using too small toys. Smaller toys are generally easier to insert but make sure they are not too small/narrow or there is a risk for them to scratch your urethra.
  • Forcing something down your urethral opening. You should never use force! The moment you feel pressure or any form of pain or discomfort, it’s a sign that you should stop.

Okay, so these are some of the bad ideas on how to stretch your urethra. Here are some better ideas on how to do it:

How to Stretch Properly

Before you start, you need to understand a few things about your urethra. It is a narrow opening so you need to proceed with caution. The tissue is very sensitive so it’s important to go slowly in order not to make any damage or cause any problems. Also, keep in mind that urethra is a bit sticky so it’s vital to use a lot of lube before you start.

Another thing you need to understand before you begin is that stretching your urethra is not a one time, quick deal. It is a process, so this is why it’s called “urethral training”. Be prepared to work slowly and invest some time into this. Chances are that you won’t be able to stretch properly in one go. That is okay. Just give your body enough time to get used to this new feeling. You can do it in several sessions. Give your body some rest (like a day or two) between sessions and then try again. Eventually, your body will get used to the feeling and the whole process will become easier.

So, here are some tips for the first timers:

  • Be patient and go slowly. This isn’t something you can do in a rush.
  • It’s best to use specialized training toys and urethral stretchers. These toys are specially designed for beginners who wish to try urethral stretching for the first time.
  • If you can’t get a specialized trainer toy, make sure to choose a urethral toy suitable for beginners. It should be smaller so it doesn’t go too deep into the urethra. Some people, however, prefer to start with the smallest urethral sounds available. This is also a valid option but make sure to never go too deep.
  • Before you use your toy, make sure to sterilize it. Needless to say, all body-friendly and safe urethral toys are made of surgical steel, so they can be sterilized. Boil the toy to sterilize it. Rubbing it with alcohol before you start is just not enough! Also, once the toy is sterilized make sure not to contaminate it. Use rubber gloves to hold it and don’t touch it with dirty fingers.
  • Keep in mind: any bacteria or dirt from the outside can come down to cause problems, such as urethral infections. This is why you need to be extra careful. Sterilize your toys. Wash your penis and your hands. Use rubber gloves if needed. This is something that requires a very clean environment.
  • Give yourself enough time. This is crucial. Urethral stretching is not something you can do in a rush.
  • Use plenty of lube. This is the only way to ensure comfort. Choose surgical lube or another type of sterile lube.
  • Start by slowly inserting the tip of your toy in your urethral opening. Hold your penis with one toy and gently insert the tip. If this is all you can do for the first session, don’t worry. It will get easier after several sessions.
  • Your body needs to get used to this new sensation, so don’t expect your training to be super-arousing at first. At the same time, it should not hurt or cause major discomfort. Pain is actually a big warning sign that you should stop!
  • If you manage to insert the tip of your toy without a problem, wait some time for your body to get used to the feeling, then try going a bit deeper. The goal is to make the toy slide inside – it should never be pushed or forced.
  • In order to make the process easier, it may be useful to hold the tip of you penis gently and to stretch the opening with one hand while sliding the toy with the other.
  • If it starts to feel a bit “dry” or sticky, take out the toy gently and add more lube before you try again.
  • Never try to go too deep, especially for your first time. You should train your urethra for stimulation and stretch it enough to be able to accept toys without a problem. The goal is to make your urethra wider, not to go as deep as you can. Deep urethral sounding is reserved for more experienced users.
  • It’s best if you are not erect the first time you try to insert the toy, but some people feel it’s better if they are erect. There is not a wrong way to go about this, unless the toy is curved, but these toys are not recommended for beginner users anyway, so you should not use them straight away. Experiment to see what feels best.
  • You might want to masturbate to see how it feels with the toy inside. This is a good way to see what feels pleasurable and what kind of stimulation you like. However, do not focus on masturbation or pleasure too much – your first goal is to stretch your urethra so it can accommodate toys. Therefore, focus on training your body to get used to this new feeling. There will be plenty of opportunity for arousal later.
  • On the other hand, if it feels really pleasurable, nothing prevents you from masturbating, but make sure to go slowly and gently!
  • After each session don’t forget to wash your toy properly. It’s also advisable to urinate after using urethral toys in order to wash your urethra and get rid of any potential bacteria. However, even if your toys are properly washed after use you will still need to sterilize them before you use them the next time!

Have fun stretching your urethra and discovering new pleasures! Make sure to be safe and always use only specialized toys made for urethral stimulation. This is the only way to ensure a great time!

Urethral Play FAQ

415tHere are some commonly asked questions about urethral stimulation and urethral devices.

If you wish to try any type of urethral sounding or other urethral stimulation make sure you are familiar with basics.

You need to stay safe during these activities!

Is urethral sounding truly pleasurable? It seems like an uncomfortable medical procedure.

Yes, urethral sounding is pleasurable. Urethral stimulation of any kind can be very stimulating, so it’s not surprising many people truly like this type of arousal. A feeling of urethral stimulation is truly one of a kind.

And yet, when you are at the doctor’s, it might not seem pleasurable at all. Why is so?

First of all, it has to be said that urethral procedures done for medical reasons are not uncomfortable for all people. They can be pleasurable even if this situation. In fact, this is how many people discover they are attracted to this type of stimulation in the first place. Many doctors report their patients getting aroused during urethral sounding and other urethral procedures. This is normal.

On the other hand, do not be surprised if you find urethral sounding uncomfortable when done for medical purposes. It is simply not the same as doing it in the privacy of your own home. Urethral sounding done by your doctor is a medical procedure, and it’s not done to produce sexual arousal – it is done out of medical reasons. It is understandable if it’s not pleasurable as such. Also, doctor’s offices are not the most arousing places to be, and many people are nervous during these procedures. All these factors combined often make for a less than arousing experience. That doesn’t mean that urethral stimulation is not extremely arousing when done in the privacy of your own home.

But what if I am aroused by the medical aspects of it?

This is also a possibility. You might be into medical fetish and medical toys in general. It is hardly an unheard of activity: there are many people who enjoy roleplaying of this kind. Urethral sounds and other urethral toys are great for those who like this fetish. Many bondage and other kink activities incorporate some aspect of a medical play, so if it works for you and your partner, go for it!

Why are many urethral sounds curved while penis plugs tend to be straight?

445tPenis plug and urethral sound designs tend to vary greatly, so you will be able to find many devices of different shapes and sizes. That being said, it is true that urethral sounds are often curved on the end while penis plugs tend to be straight. Why is so?

The main reason is because of the slightly different ways in which sounds and plugs are used. While plugs are simply inserted into urethra, most sounds are made to reach truly deep. To achieve so, they need to follow the natural shape of the urethral canal, all the way to the end. Not to mention that some urethral sounds are made to go all the way to the bladder.

While bladder stimulation should be done only if you are familiar with the anatomy and how it works, keep in mind that many urethral sounds are made after true medical devices used for numerous procedures. As such, they copy the design of those medical devices.

Do I need to be pierced to enjoy urethral stimulation?

No. Urethral devices such as urethral sounds and penis plugs do not require you to have a pierced penis. While piercings can be used to enhance the pleasure you absolutely do not have to have any genital piercing to try urethral devices.

Urethral toys such as penis plugs and urethral sounds use your natural hole: urethral canal. They are carefully inserted into urethra and provide stimulation to your penis from the inside. You do not need to be pierced to enjoy this.

Some urethral devices come with glans rings made to keep the device in place and to provide additional stimulation during use, but you do not need to be pierced to enjoy this type of devices.

On the other hand, having a PA piercing or another type of a penis piercing can help you enhance urethral pleasure even more. Some urethral devices are designed in such a way to use holes created by the piercings or to get attached to your piercings. If you have a pierced penis you will sure find a way to enhance urethral stimulation even more. That being said, you do not have to be pierced to try urethral stimulation.

Is urethral stimulation safe?

Urethral stimulation is safe if done with caution. This is why it’s important to be informed and to learn a lot about different urethral devices and how to use them. A basic knowledge of anatomy is also needed. This is a highly pleasurable activity but not one to try without being informed about safe practices. If you are a newbie to urethral stimulation make sure to learn a lot about these practices and how to stay safe.

Also, it’s vital to always use specialized toys made for urethral stimulation. Never shove a random object down your urethra! This is very dangerous. Stick to smaller urethral toys first and build your way from there. Also, don’t forget to use plenty of lube. Always use your common sense. If it becomes uncomfortable or painful at any point it’s a sign that you should stop and try later with a smaller toy.

Whatever you do, make sure to inform yourself about anatomy and safe practices so you can enjoy urethral stimulation without problems and injuries.

Can I be erect?

427tUrethral stimulation is used for sexual arousal, so erection and orgasms are often the goal. Inserting a device might be another thing, though. For some urethral devices, it’s important to start when you’re flaccid. It is more comfortable and safer that way. Not to mention that some devices can be inserted or taken out only when you are flaccid. Other urethral devices can be inserted or taken out even when you have an erection. This is one of the reasons why you need to be informed and know how to use your chosen urethral device.

If you want to use a device that has to be inserted while you’re flaccid, keep in mind that the same rule applies for taking the device out. Do not force a sound or a plug out! If it seems “stuck” while you’re erect, don’t panic. It will be easy to take it out once your erection is gone.

That being said, it is generally safe to achieve erection when having a urethral device inserted – this goes for almost any type of a urethral device. After all, they are made for sexual pleasure. However, if in doubt, do check with the manufacturer.

The same goes for orgasming: it is safe to do so while wearing a urethral device, though what happens with semen will depend on the device itself. Some devices, typically penis plugs, have a hollow body so all fluids can flow free. It means you can cum while wearing these devices without a problem. Since the same goes for all fluids, you can safely urinate with the device on. It means you can wear your urethral device for a prolonged periods of time.

Other devices have a solid body and cannot let the fluids go. It makes for a very unique experience. There are even specialized urethral devices, known as sperm stoppers that are made to achieve this feeling.

How long can I keep a urethral device in?

This will depend on a urethral device in question. Some of urethral toys are specially designed for long-term wear, so they are meant to be inserted and kept inside for a long time. Those are typically special penis plugs you can wear for hours (and even more), even while performing everyday activities. Such plugs are typically hollow so they allow for urination (see above).

On the other hand, there are urethral devices made for short term-wear only. Urethral sounds are typically those you cannot keep in for a long time. It all depends on the design and intended use, so when in doubt, check twice to make sure your urethral toy is indeed suitable for a long term wear.

Difference between Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds

plugsUrethral sounds and penis plugs are the most popular urethral toys in the world.

If you are interested in urethral play and stimulation, it’s vital to know the difference between the most popular urethral devices and how to use them properly.

This is the only way to achieve satisfaction.

Before You Start

A special caution must be taken by those who wish to try urethral stimulation for the first time. Keep in mind, some urethral toys are made especially for the more advanced users and you should not use them unless your urethra is stretched properly and unless you are familiar with more basic forms of urethral stimulation.

It’s always best to start with smaller toys and build your way up from there. If you can’t find specializes stretcher and trainer toys, start with the smallest, smoothest urethral toy you can find.

Also, one important thing to keep in mind at all times: use only toys specially designed for this type of stimulation. While it may seem tempting to try different things, do not ever shove a random object down your penis. Always stick to proper urethral devices only.

Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds: The Difference

Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are toys designed for urethral stimulation. In some ways, they achieve the same purpose and are used in a similar way. Both are designed to be used for urethral penetration, that is, they are inserted into the urethral opening. Most of these toys are designed for men, but some women can use them as well. If you are a woman who wishes to use urethral toys it’s best to stick to smaller toys.

Most users of urethral toys are men, which means most of the popular types of toys are made with men in mind. Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are inserted into the urethra and can be used to stimulate penis on the inside.

So, what’s the difference? The main difference is the shape and length, though there are some variations. Typically speaking, urethral sounds are longer and they are made for deep urethral exploration. This is why they are recommended for more experienced users who are already familiar with urethral stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, tend to be shorter. They are great for beginners who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. On the other hand, there are more extreme penis plugs out there, made with experienced users in mind, so they are definitely not a beginner’s toy only.

Another difference to keep in mind is the purpose. Urethral Sounds are actually medical instruments used by real doctors. This is why they are known as medical toys, though they are not used for medical play only. That being said, urethral sounds used as sex toys are still shaped in the same (or very similar) way as the medical toys used in hospitals. Some of them are long enough to reach all the way down to the prostate and bladder. In these cases, a special care must be taken not to damage these organs, though it’s also possible to use urethral sounds for prostate stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, are sex toys only. They are usually not as long to reach that deep into urethra. They also come in many different shapes and textures. They are made for penis stimulation and they can accompany different beads and other curves made for enhancing the effect. Some penis plugs also come with a glans ring. The ring is there to perform a dual function: it keeps the plug safely inside urethra and it also provides additional stimulation during use.

The main differences between urethral sounds and penis plugs:

  • Penis Plugs: shorter, made in numerous designs (straight, wavy, bumpy, etc.), made for penis stimulation but usually not long enough for prostate stimulation, often include glans rings for added stimulation and to keep the plug in place.
  • Urethral Sounds: longer, straight or slightly curved, used as medical devices (and for medical play), made for deep urethral stimulation. They come in several standard types: Hegar, Van Buren, Pratt, and more.

Prince’s Wands

Prince Albert Wands are very stimulating sex toys. They are specially designed for men with PA piercing, though there are those designed for men who don’t have a PA piercing: these wands simulate the appearance of a pierced penis and provide pleasurable sensations.

These wands are made to be inserted into the urethra to stimulate it. Wands designed for pierced penis have a special post that goes through your PA piercing. This way, it works both as a piercing jewelry and a penis plug for urethral stimulation.

Wands made for non-pierced penises often have a glans ring that makes the
toy sit securely on place, so there’s no risk of the toy sliding out, which is sometimes a problem with typical penis plugs.

The Design

There are many different designs of prince’s wands, as well as many different sizes of this sex toy, to accommodate different needs and preferences. Generally speaking, the design mainly depends on the piercing. Wands made for a pierced penis have a special stem that goes through a Prince Albert piercing. Wands made for a non-pierced penis only have a shaft.

The shaft is inserted into the urethra and the top of the wand usually has a threaded cap, typically shaped as a ball. If the shaft is hollow, this cap can be removed to allow passing of urine and semen. Many wands, especially those made for non-pierced penises, come with a glans ring.

Wands vary by length and thickness, so each user has to determine what is the most optimal size for him. Some men choose several wands, made for many different sensations. Typically, a Prince’s Wand is between 2 and 6 inches long, though some are even longer.

Some wands have a hollow shaft, to allow urination and ejaculation without taking the toy out. Others have a solid shaft. Most Prince’s wands are made of surgical steel and titanium. When choosing a wand or any other type of a penis plug or a sound, it’s important to make sure it’s made of a body-safe material.

Some PA wands have external rings attached to the cap on the outside. Some of the wands make this ring into a glans ring, for added stimulation.

Using a Prince’s Wand

To determine the best size for your needs, you need to measure your penis when it’s fully erect. Some men don’t like penis plugs that go too deep into the urethra, so the standard 2-6 inches plugs will accommodate most users.

To make the insertion easier, you may use a bit of a lube. Avoid water-based lubricants because they can be absorbed into the urethra and make the plug stuck inside.

Prince’s Wand Penis Plugs

Prince’s Wands made for non-pierced penises are sometimes simply called “penis wands”. These are basically large penis plugs, usually bigger than the regular (smaller) plugs or beginner plugs. These wands are not the same as the wands made for pierced penises.

Generally speaking, these plugs are made for more intense urethral stimulation and are often thicker than the regular penis plugs (though this is not the rule). These plugs are usually held in place by a glans ring. These sex toys are very enjoyable for those who like deep, intense urethral stimulation.

Glans Rings

Double Ring Sperm Stopper

Double Ring Sperm Stopper

Glans rings are special penis rings worn under the glans of the penis. Unlike typical cock rings, made to be worn around the base of the penis (or testicles), a glans ring is worn around the head of the penis.

Just like any other cock ring, a glans ring will provide a pressure around the penis, making it more sensitive and harder. A glans ring is specially designed to make a penis head harder and more sensitive to touch. While this doesn’t help with general erection, it will make the head larger and harder, which will in turn make sexual intercourse more pleasurable for the wearer and his partner. It will also make orgasms more intense.

Design

A glans ring is a cock ring positioned around the penis head. Therefore, almost any regular cock ring can serve as a glans ring. You may use flexible rings or sturdy, metal ones.

However, there are also some rings specially made to be used as glans rings. These rings are made to fit snugly around the penis head. This provides the most comfort for the wearer and his partner during intercourse.

Also, there are some special designs of glans rings made to enhance a wearer’s experience. Probably the most popular ones are the so-called Sperm Stoppers. A sperm stopper is a glans ring with a special rod made to be inserted into the urethra. This rod usually has a ball on the end and is made to prevent the sperm from coming out.

Penis Plugs with Glans Rings

Glans rings also come as part of other types of sex toys, most commonly penis plugs. A penis plug is attached to a glans ring so a wearer will have to both insert the plug into the urethra and position the ring around his penis head.

Glans ring has two functions in this type of toys. First of all, it is made to help keeping the penis plug in place. Urethral muscles work on pushing the plug out, so the ring will prevent it. The second function of the ring is to provide the additional stimulation for the wearer and a more pleasurable experience.

These devices resemble sperm stoppers, but they are not necessarily made to prevent the flow of sperm. Many penis plugs have a hole in the middle made for undisturbed flow of urine and sperm. It depends on the penis plug design whether it can be used as a sperm stopper or not.

Using a Glans Ring

Here are some quick tips on how to use a glans ring:

  • The perfect fit is very important, so make sure to find a ring of the appropriate size. You need to know how to measure yourself for a glans ring.
  • While the fit should be snug, your glans ring should not prevent circulation completely. Make sure to wear a ring that will allow blood circulation.
  • Never leave your glans ring on for too long.
  • Both circumcised and uncircumcised men can use glans rings. Uncircumcised men can choose to wear the ring with the foreskin retracted or not.

Penis plugs are excellent toys for exploration, kink and achieving new sensations. This kind of sex play can be very exciting and rewarding, so it’s not surprising so many men wish to try it at least once. Thing is… Once you try penis plugs for the first time, you won’t be able to stop.

This is a truly amazing form of pleasure and satisfaction. It combines medical play, kinky games and pure pleasure. A quality penis plug can make you discover new sensitive spots and it makes sex so much more exciting for both partners. Even the visual satisfaction is amazing: the image of a plug being inserted inside penis is very arousing and stimulating.

Add a Ring

Out all of the penis plugs available, those with added glans ring are the most exciting. This penis plug & ring combo truly works for creating unique stimulation. These penis plugs are carefully designed to press all the right spots and they provide targeted, simultaneous massage to all your erogenous zones.

The penis plug can be inserted for a perfect feeling of fullness. Most plugs have a hole inside so they allow for easy ejaculation or urination, if this is what you like. Other plugs come without a hole and they provide yet another kind of sensation, especially during high arousal. Many plugs are carefully textured to provide both smooth, easy insertion and added stimulation. The feeling of inserting them and the pressure of stretching is incredibly arousing to watch and experience.

The glans ring is there not only to keep the plug in place securely, but also to provide additional stimulation and enhance your performance. It acts as a standard cock ring, so it makes your erection super hard. These rings are typically made of steel so they are very sturdy and provide a firm grip that will make your penis super hard and sensitive.

Glans rings can be secured right below the penis head, making it larger, more pronounced and super-sensitive. If you ever wanted to enhance your performance and make your glans rock hard and sensitive to touch, this is a perfect toy combo for you.

Combined, a penis plug and a ring provide some of the hottest stimulation imaginable. The way they sit inside and outside your penis provides a perfect visual stimulant and also give you rock hard erections. You will enjoy the feeling of perfect fullness, stretched urethral opening and a tight grip around your penis.

Choosing a Penis Plug with a Ring

When choosing that perfect penis plug with a ring for yourself, there are some things to think about. First of all, the material. A quality penis plug should be made of body safe material. Surgical steel provides firmness and sturdiness you need and it feels comfortable to the body. The temperature play you can achieve with this material is also incredible.

The other thing to keep in mind is the size of the plug you will need. It should provide a tight grip but also to be comfortable enough to wear. Other things you may think about are the design, penis plug texture for additional stimulation and, of course, the size. It’s best to start with smaller models and then work your way up. It’s a very arousing training you will sure enjoy!

How to Prepare for Urethral Sounding

Before you decide to experiment with sounding, it’s important to understand that it takes time, patience and a bit of sense for adventure. This is why sounds, penis plugs and other similar toys and tools do seem so exciting. They can make you experience completely new sensations and enjoy some hot, kinky play with your partner.

To make the most of this experience, you need to be ready, relaxed and, most importantly, to have patience. Sounding can’t be done in a rush, especially when you’re only starting out.

Preparing Yourself

Before you start a sounding session, you need to prepare yourself. Sounding is not just about inserting urethral sounds inside your penis: it’s also about sharing an intimate and kinky moment with your partner. Therefore, both partners should be prepared and ready to communicate during the play. This is crucial, especially if this is your first time to attempt sounding.

The first thing is to be relaxed and ready. Sounding takes time, patience and good communication between partners, so make sure you feel comfortable about trying this. Whatever you do, it’s important to be prepared, both mentally and physically. Mental preparation is about truly wanting to try urethral sounding and to be as relaxed as possible, because it will make the experience more rewarding. Physically, it’s important to be clean: wash yourself, especially your penis. Both you and your partner should wash your hands.

Needless to say, before you start with urethral play, you need to have all the items and tools prepared: urethral sounds or urethral sound set you want to use, sterile lube, rubber gloves, towels, or any other item you wish to use. It’s important that all toys are properly sanitized and ready for your sounding session.

Alone or With a Partner?

Sounding is, for the large part, a kinky play between partners. This is why it’s usually done during a kinky session with another person. If sounding is part of a BDSM play a man who’s being penetrated with an urethral sound is bottom. Sounding offers numerous opportunities for D/s play, so this is why it’s such an exciting technique.

However, when it comes to practicing and preparing yourself for the first urethral sounding, you may go alone or try it with a partner. Some people prefer to start urethral play and experimenting with urethral stimulation on their own. A man might want to get used to the sensation of being penetrated in this way and to test how he feels about it. Some people love to try it on their own and at their own pace. This testing can also help you relax and stretch your urethra a little, so the actual sounding will feel more familiar and comfortable.

Many people, however, want to start with a partner. For them, urethral sounding is a fetish between a couple, and they want to experience it in the hands of their partner. They don’t want to merely feel the sensation of urethral play: they want another person (their partner) to do it. These people will sure want to experience urethral sounding with a partner, and they want their partner to be the one inserting the sound.

There is no right or wrong way to go here: opt for what feels right for you. It’s really important to be excited about the urethral play and to be as relaxed and enthusiastic as possible. To achieve this, you should do it in a way that feels right for you.

The Original Penis Plug

“The Original” Penis Plug

Penis plugs are among the most exciting adult toys on the market. Carefully crafted and beautifully designed, these toys can also count as unique penis jewelry. Many men adore this type of stimulation and having something inside their penis hole, so it’s not surprising there are so many models of penis plugs you can try.

The best thing about a penis plug is that it can heighten sexual pleasure when inserted into the urethra. It’s also a great sight: watching objects entering the penis hole and having your penis plugged with one of those things looks and feels amazing. It is one of the most popular toys for those who prefer kinky games.

A Toy and Jewelry

Wearing a penis plug provides excellent feelings. A beautifully crafted plug makes great penis jewelry and many men love to have not one but a whole collection of various penis plugs they can change and play with.

Most penis plugs are made of metal so they are sturdy, perfectly smooth and beautifully designed. Some come with a special glans ring for added stimulation. The design itself is intriguing and visually stimulating. It’s not surprising this penis jewelry is so popular.

At the same time, penis plugs are so much more than decorative jewelry. They provide unique sensations and feeling of fullness for the man. A nice penis plug can add a lot to your solo play, kinky sessions or sex with a partner.

During masturbation, a penis plug provides a good stimulation you won’t be able to experience with any other type of a sex toy. It truly feels like you are stimulated from the inside out. This is some new feelings many men love to experience.

Finally, penis plugs provide unique and striking visual image. In a way, a plug can imitate the look of a Prince Albert piercing without actually being pierced. This can add to a visual stimulation during sex for both the wearer and his partner.

Different Types of Penis Plugs

Penis plugs come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and designs. Some have the central hole while the others are solid. There are special, starter plugs made for beginners who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. On the other end of the spectrum there are very large and massive plugs made for experienced users who love intense sensations.

Your choice of plugs will depend on your preferences, desired sensation you wish to experience and your comfort/experience level. There are so many types of penis plugs so you can easily find the one to suit your needs perfectly.

Some of the most popular types of penis plugs include:

Solid plugs. These are the simplest when it comes to design and they are often suitable even for beginners. They are smooth and don’t have any texture or a central hole.

Plugs with a central hole. These plugs contain a hole in the middle to allow for urine and ejaculate to be passed without taking the plug out.

Textured plugs. Many penis plugs have a texture. The texture serves two purposes: it keeps the plug in place and it provides for more intense stimulation during use.

Plugs with a glans ring. These pugs come with an attached glans ring. The ring serves several purposes. First of all, it keeps the plug in place. It also provides some tight grip around the penis for added stimulation.

Penis plugs and urethral sounds are popular tools for sexual experimentation, arousal and pleasure. Many men use them to enrich their sexual experience and reach new levels of sexual pleasure. These toys can be used for masturbation, sex, role-playing, medical games, and in many other ways – the only limit is your imagination. To know how to use them properly, however, you need to understand what they do and what is the best way to start using them.

Penis Plugs and Sounds: The Difference

The first thing you need to understand is the difference between penis plugs and urethral sounds. They are both used for urethral play and they are both inserted into penis. Their function and the way they are used, however, are what makes the difference.

A penis plug is a toy (often considered body jewelry) that’s cam be inserted into urethra to achieve sexual arousal. A penis plug can make the penis more sensitive and responsive, it can make erections stronger and it can also intensify orgasm. Another reason to use a penis plug is to imitate the look of a Prince Albert piercing without being pierced for real.

There are many different designs of penis plugs. In its basic form, a penis plug is a smooth, metal plug made to be inserted into urethra. Other designs are made to heighten the arousal and to help keep the plug in place, so you can find textured penis plugs or penis plugs with a glans ring. The ring keeps the plug in place safely and it also increases pleasure by making the penis harder and more sensitive to touch. Some penis rings are solid while others have a central hole so urine and sperm can be passed freely.

Urethral sounds are used in medicine for dilating urethra during medical examination and tests. These tools can also be used to achieve sexual pleasure. Many people enjoy the feeling of their urethra being stretched and probed, so this is why urethral sounds are so popular with many men looking for more exciting sexual experiences.

Urethral sounds are usually sold in sets. The sounds in a set have different sizes (especially width, though many vary in length), so it’s possible to stat with the smallest ones and build your way from there. Many urethral sounds have a curve at the end made to stimulate the bladder.

Urethral sounds are typically longer and sometimes slimmer than the plugs. They can be inserted deep into the penis and reach the bladder. Many sounds have a special end made for stimulating urethra and bladder. Sounds are often used in medical role-play.
It’s important to choose the most appropriate penis plugs and sounds for a beginner’s level.

This is the best way to start using penis plugs and sounds. Proper design and fitting will ensure not only the best and safest experience but it will also help you get used to the feeling and it will help you decide if urethral play is something you enjoy.

Think About the Design

Penis plugs and sounds come in many different sizes (width and length vary greatly), as well as designs. This is particularly true for penis plugs, though there are different urethral sound designs you may wish to try.

The first thing you need to check is how well-crafted the product is. These toys have to be carefully designed to allow safe urethral play. Penis plugs and urethral sounds typically have curves, texture or even pointed tips (especially in the case of urethral sounds) but the design itself has to be suited for the male anatomy to allow the safe play. A penis plug and urethral sounds are designed well if they allow for smooth, safe insertion. Make sure that the insertion end of a penis plug is smooth and made of thick enough metal not to hurt the urethral walls at insertion.

When inspecting a design of a penis plug, make sure that it’s made in a way that ensures a good fit and that will keep the plug in place. It’s important that a plug is safely designed so it won’t go far into urethra. This is why a plug needs to be carefully designed. It needs to have a wider end that will prevent it to go too far into urethra. Some plugs use a disk or a ball to prevent the plug to be inserted too far, while others use special handles. The exact type of the “stopper” used is not so important but it’s vital that a plug has something on the other end that will prevent it to be inserted too far into urethra.

Another thing you need to consider is keeping the plug in place. It’s often difficult to keep a plug in place due to urethral muscles trying to push the plug out. As a beginner user, you will need a bit of practice to keep your penis plug in place. It’s also important to choose a plug with a narrow shoulder so it can get a good grip inside urethra and stay in place. Various types of glans rings are also used to keep the plug in place but these plugs are often more complex in design so they are not always suitable for first-time users.

There are several popular designs and types of urethral sounds (Hegar, Pratt, Van Buren, Rosebud, and more). For the best first-time experience, it’s important to choose a smooth urethral sound that is thin enough and easy to insert and remove. The best urethral sounds for beginners are Hegar, rosebud and Dittle sounds

Hegar sounds are S-shaped sounds. They have two different diameters on each end. These are smooth, gently curved sounds suitable even for beginners. This is a perfect sound type for those who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. Rosebud sounds are straight and they have a long, thin handle and a bulbous end. The bulbous end is made to stretch and stimulate urethral walls. They are easy to be inserted so they are suitable even for less experienced users. Dittle sounds are straight, with a rounded tip and a flat end. They are suitable even for beginner’s who wish to try urethral sounding.

Choose some of these sounds for your first experience. Their smooth design and anatomic shape make them easy to insert and take out, so they are perfect for less experienced users.

As a general rule, beginners should use penis plugs and sounds with a tapered tip. This makes for the most comfortable insertion and it carefully stretches urethra as the plug or a sound slides in. There are many other designs on the market, but it’s best to stick to the most basic ones until you are used to the sensation and prepared to take more extreme styles.

Choosing the Size

For your first time and the beginner’s level, smooth, solid plugs and urethral sounds are the best choice. The best beginner’s penis plug is small in size, solid and smooth. It may not be worn for a long period of time, but this is ok: you need to get used of the feeling of being stretched and filled up in this way. A smooth penis plug is the most comfortable so it won’t hurt your urethral walls and it will help you get used to the feeling easily.

Another thing you need to consider is the width of the plug. There are special starter plugs specially made for first time users and those who prefer only light urethral play. Generally speaking, a smooth, thinner plug (not thicker than 0.25- 0.3 inches) is the best for beginner users. When it comes to length, it’s best to use a shorter plug for your first time. Choose a plug that is not larger than 1.5-2 inches. This is a perfect size for a novice. Don’t go for the longer plugs until you are completely comfortable with the smaller ones. Later, when you get used to the feeling of wearing a penis plug you can move to thicker plugs with textures, central hole and other additions.

When it comes to urethral sounds, you need to understand that they are longer and suitable for deeper urethral stimulation. Therefore, it’s important to go slowly and to insert as much or as little as you feel comfortable. When choosing a size, make sure to go with the thinnest sounds available and to build from there. Choose a thin sound or pick the thinnest sound in a kit to start with.

How to Use Plugs and Sounds

Penis plugs and urethral sounds generally have a simple and easy to use shape, so you don’t have to think much about how to use them. However, it’s very important to go slowly and to allows your urethra to stretch naturally while the toy slides in.

For the best experience, it’s important to ensure safety (see tips below), to use clean, sanitized toys and to take your time. Don’t forget to clean both your toys and your body before you try to insert a plug or a sound. Ask your partner to sanitize hands or even use surgical gloves to insert the plug or a sound into your urethra.

Also, don’t forget about a lubricant. You will need a good, sterile lube for this. Place a bit of the lube at the penis opening and you may begin the insertion.

For the easiest experience, it’s best for your penis to be soft and not erect. Hold your penis with one hand and slowly begin to insert the plug or a sound. This is also what you should ask your partner to do, if you want another person to do the insertion.

During insertion, try to be as relaxed as possible and don’t fight it. Your urethral muscles will naturally work against it and they will try to push the plug or the sound out, or block it. Try to resist this urge and relax your muscles as much as possible. It’s best to simply let the weight of the toy pull it inside the urethra. Gravity can also help here, so it’s best to keep the penis vertically during insertion.

Once the plug or a sounds is inside, make sure you feel comfortable. This is when you should “test it” by stimulating your penis. You may also let your partner do it. Try with gentle strokes and see how it feels. Some men simply enjoy the feeling of the toy sliding in and out of the penis. Others like to keep the plug or a sound inside while masturbating. Once you feel comfortable enough you may try your first orgasm with a penis plug or a sound.

After this first experience, you can experiment further to see what you like and what kind of urethral stimulation you prefer. After a while, you can switch to more complex and extreme penis plugs and sounds to achieve even more intense feelings.

Safety Tips

For the end, here are some safety tips all beginner users should follow to ensure the best and safest experience. Penis plugs and urethral sounds are great tools that can enrich your sexual play, but you need to know how to keep it safe.

  • Always use specially designed penis plugs and urethral sounds. This is crucial for your safety. Never insert random household objects into urethra! Penis plus and sounds are carefully made to be safe and to be used in this way, which isn’t true for random objects you may find. These object may be unsanitary or they can tear your urethra and break inside your penis, which will lead to further complications. For this reason, it’s important to use only objects specially made for urethral use.
  • For your first time, it’s best to use the simplest, thinnest plugs and urethral sounds, preferably with a rounded, tapered tip. These are the best choice for beginners and they help you get used to the sensations.
  • Always sterilize your penis plugs and urethral sounds. This is one of the reasons why metal plugs and sounds work the best – they are easy to be sanitized in boiling water. Leave them in boiling water for about 5 minutes, and they are ready to be used. You may also wish to wipe them with alcohol. Also, make sure that your body and hands are clean before you play with plugs and sounds.
  • Use a quality, sterile lubricant for inserting plugs and urethral sounds. It’s important that a lubricant is sterile and to use the right amount that will make the experience comfortable. Never use saliva as a lubricant.
  • Go slowly. This can’t be stressed enough. Your penis needs to adjust to the new sensation of being stretched. Your urethra needs to be stretched easily and with care. Never rush this experience.
  • Never force the plug or a sound down your penis; it will only bring more harm than good. It’s best to let the toy slide naturally deeper inside your urethra.
  • Relax. Being relaxed during your first urethral play is crucial for the positive experience. This is something new and exciting, so try not to worry. Always take your time to get used to urethral stretching and all the new stimulation you will experience.
  • If you use urethral sounds with a curve, wait for your erection to go away before you try to take it out.
  • You should always take the solid penis plug out before ejaculation, to prevent retrograde ejaculation.

Hopefully, these tips will help you have a great first experience with urethral play so you will continue to use penis plugs and sounds to achieve sexual pleasure and enhance your sex life.
