“In and Out” Sounding: How To

SoundingOne of the most exciting things about urethral stimulation is that you can play with your toys in many different ways. It all depends on your preferences and experience level, but there are definitely various things you can try.

For many people, one of the most exciting things about urethral stimulation is to use the toy to simulate penetrative sex. In other words, to penetrate your penis with a toy. Typically, it is done using in and out movements, in which the sound or a penis plug is moved in and out of the penis. Basically, it means “fucking” yourself (or your partner!) with a urethral toy. While not all people enjoy this activity, many claim this is the best and most arousing part of urethral stimulation.

“In and Out” Sounding Tips

If you wish to try in and out sounding, good news: there is actually nothing preventing you to try. There are not many rules and guidelines for this form of a play, though as with any other form of urethral stimulation, it is vital to stay safe and know how to proceed. For this reason, inexperienced users are advised to try this form of stimulation with an experienced partner who will sound them. If you wish to try this activity on your own, the most important thing is to go slowly and gently! This is an absolute must to keep yourself safe and without injuries to your urethra.

Here are some tips on safe in and out sounding:

Insert the toy carefully. The toy has to be inserted with care. Do not rush things out.

Use plenty of lube. In and out sounding makes a lot of friction, so to prevent injuries to your urethra, make sure to use plenty of lube. Lube the toy and your penis before you start. If it ever becomes a bit too rough, make sure to re-lube before continuing.

Go gently. It is an imperative to go slowly and gently. While it might be difficult to maintain the slow rhythm as you get aroused, it is vital to stay safe. Do not go too rough!

Go only an inch or two. One important thing to know about in and out sounding: the stroking motions should be short. You should move the toy out only for an inch or two! Use short strokes and do not move the toy more than an inch or two up and down! This is important to maintain safety.

Do not go too deep. In and out stimulation is ideal for shorter urethral toys, such as ribbed and textured penis plugs and short sounds. It is generally not made for deep stimulation, so make sure not to insert the toys too deeply into your urethra.

You may need to downsize, but be careful. This is a tricky one. Generally speaking, toys that are too thin are reserved for experienced users only, since they are sharper and more dangerous. On the other hand, in and out sounding generally feels better with a toy that is one size (but not more!) smaller than your usual size. It will make the toy glide with ease. That being said, it is dangerous to use toys that are too thin, so if you are only starting out (and using toys one size bigger than the smaller one or two sizes bigger than the smallest one), using a thinner toy for in and out sounding may be too dangerous. This is why beginner users are absolutely encouraged to either stretch their urethra first or not to try in and out sounding at all. You may try with your usual toy diameter and see how it goes. If it’s too tight for in and out sounding it’s better to wait until you are more experienced or until your urethra is properly stretched. Do not use super-thin toys for this purpose! Again, those are reserved for experienced users.

Use appropriate toys. Always use only toys specially designed for urethral stimulation. If you wish to try in and out massage, it’s best to use short, textured toys made for the purpose. These toys with bumps and textured exterior will provide additional stimulation during use and will enhance the in and out motions. Recommended products:

Additional Tips

  • While the article is focused on penis and male users, it’s important to know that women can enjoy this type of urethral massage, too. All you need to do is to choose a smaller toy than the one appropriate for penis sounding. Use plenty of lube and try gentle in and out movements to see how they feel. However, keep in mind not to go too deeply. If you feel any pain or if your urethral toy reaches the end of urethra, you should stop and wait until your body recovers. Next time, try using shorter movements.
  • That being said, there are some women who enjoy bladder teasing (just like there are men who like the same thing). If you wish to do this keep in mind that this activity is more dangerous so you need to be as gentle as possible. Women have a much shorter urethra, which makes for a greater risk to develop urinary tract infections. As usual with these types of extreme sexual activities, it’s best to consult a doctor before doing anything!
  • Keep in mind that in and out movements will probably irritate your urethral walls, even if you use plenty of lube (and you should always use lube!) Expect some burning during urination. Some people also experience a bit of pain, but it doesn’t last long. If the pain and burning sensation persist for hours or into following days make sure to consult your doctor.
  • If you experience pain (particularly sharp pain), significant discomfort, discharge, blood, cramps or any other problem, it is important to seek medical attention immediately! To stay safe, it is best to find a kink-friendly doctor beforehand. Ask for their opinion and advice how to stay safe during sounding and make sure to contact them if you encounter any sort of a problem!

"Sounds" Good to Me

It is not unusual for people to want to explore different types of sexual stimulation. Over the past couple of years sounding, or urethral sounding, has become a very common practice among many. Sounding is the act of inserting an object, usually a long and smooth object, into the urethra for sexual pleasure. While this practice is mostly done by men, some women also enjoy the pleasures of the stimulation.

Sounding is sometimes referred to as “cock-stuffing” or “urethral masturbation”.  Sounds are surgical steel smooth rods that are used in medical settings to stretch the urethra, but are also used for sexual pleasure outside of the medical setting. These rods come in many different sizes and styles. Some people like to use household objects when first starting out because they are scared or embarrassed to purchase the correct items, with this sexual practice but it is HIGHLY NOT recommended. And with the Internet now there is no reason to fear purchasing the safe and correct items to use. Sounds are the best, safest objects to use for sounding obviously. There are many different sounding kits available, and also just individual pieces if you already know your size. These kits are great for someone newly interested in sounding because they often start at a small size and gradually get larger.  Experienced people in urethra play find that the ribbed sounds work great for them.

The urethra is very soft tissue that can be easily damaged while taking part in the pleasures of sounding if one is not careful. Some irritation is expected when first starting.  Another concern with urethral sounding is infection. A urinary tract infection can happen if your hands and the sound are not properly cleaned, and can become sever if not treated. Using antibacterial or antimicrobial soap is the best way to clean your hands before this act is done. Because the sounds are made of surgical steel they can be boiled in hot water and sanitized better than most any other objects, just be sure that you do not burn them on the bottom of a pot or something like that, use a double boiler or a pedestal in the bottom of the pot. Each and every time the sound is used it needs to be cleaned and sanitized.

Inserting a sound rod into the urethra needs to be lubricated in order to prevent tearing of the urethra. Water based lubrication like Surgilube is the best type of lube to use when inserting the sound. While holding the penis upright the rod can be inserted. The sound should not be forced into the urethra but merely guided, especially if you are new to this practice; gravity does most of the work. Starting with a small sound will help you learn your limits. Some people like to see how far they can insert the sound, while others like to see how big they can make their urethra.

Urethral play is pleasurable for some for a couple of different reasons. When the sound is inserted into the penis it meant to stimulate the glands and tissues in the inner walls of the penis associated with sexual pleasures. Some like the bladder to be included in this sexual act. Sounding is considered a fetishistic activity. This is a power type of fetish. A lot of individuals that are into BDSM find sounding to be very pleasurable. If you are going to be involving a partner in urethral play, make sure you are fully comfortable and trust them.
