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.

How to Avoid Problems with Cock Rings

Cock RingCock rings are amazing sex toys that can be used for many different things. Their main purpose is to make erections harder and longer lasting, so the man will greatly improve his performance. Also, orgasms are known to be more powerful and longer, so it’s undeniable cock rings provide a lot of pleasure to both the wearer and his partners.

That being said, in order to use cock rings and glans rings safely, it’s vital to know how to use them properly and how to avoid potential problems.

Avoiding Problems

The most important thing to ensure satisfaction is to stay safe while using cock rings. Keep in mind that penis rings are powerful devices and thus should be used according to the guidelines and instructions. They are made to provide great pleasure but they can cause harm if you don’t use them properly.

The first thing you need to know is where the potential danger comes from. Think about how cock rings work. They are worn around the erect penis or testicles in order to “trap” the blood inside the penis, thus making the erection harder and bigger. This is what makes them so powerful: they are among the best toys to improve a man’s erection and his performance in bed.

However, this is also where potential problems can develop. Since penis rings are made to be worn around the penis and provide a tight grip, they can also significantly reduce the blood flow to the penis. They can be too tight and they can cause further problems if they are worn for too long.

Leaving a cock ring on for too long can lead to blood coagulation inside the penis, which makes it difficult to lose the erection. This is a very painful condition and can be dangerous, since it can cause numerous damages to the erectile tissue. This condition requires urgent medical attention in order to prevent even worse consequences. Cock rings that are too tight or sized incorrectly can cause numerous problems and endanger your health.

For these reasons, it’s vital to always wear a correctly sized penis rings and glans rings and to leave them on only for shorter periods of time.

Stay Safe

To goal is to increase the erection but not to swell up your penis to the point of pain and discomfort.

It’s vital to have a good fit and to find a properly sized cock ring for you. This is the only way to ensure safety.

Another thing to think about is how long to wear your cock ring. Some cock rings, such as leather cock rings, can be worn for longer periods of time, but even in these cases make sure not to wear them for hours and hours.

Metal cock rings, on the other hand, are made only for short-term wear. You should never leave them on for longer than 20 minutes or so. Wearing them for longer is not safe and can lead to numerous problems.

Also, always make sure to put your cock ring slowly and to take it off with care. In case it causes you pain or discomfort at any point, remove it immediately.  In case you notice bruises or other problems make sure to consult your doctor.

The Penis Poem

My nookie days are over,
My pilot light is out,
What used to be my sex appeal
is now my water spout!
Time was when, on its own,
from my trousers it would spring,
But now its just a full time job
to find the fucking thing!
It use 2 be embarrassing
the way it would behave,
For every single morning
it would stand and watch me shave!
Now as old age approaches,
  it sure gives me the blues,
to see it hang its little head
& watch me tie my shoes!
