You may be surprised to learn that urethral toys are relatively simple to use – but you need to know how to go about it. It definitely requires some practice, but the technique is usually not the problem. What beginners fail to understand is that urethral play is a somewhat acquired taste. You may like it right from the start, but it takes some practice to truly enjoy it.
What does it mean? Generally speaking, you will need to prepare your body for this type of stimulation.
Preparing Your Body
If you’ve never had anything inside your urethra, or if you’re only starting out with your experimentation, chances are that you will find urethral play “strange”. Pleasurable and intriguing, yes, but also unusual. This is where “preparing your body” comes in.
The preparation includes several things, and they are broadly divided into two major actions: training your urethra and getting used to the sensation. These actions should not be understood as “phases”, since they overlap. As you train your urethra, you are making your body used to the sensation. It goes hand in hand. However, these two things are not the same, so it’s important to understand both if you wish to enjoy urethral stimulation to the fullest.
Training and Stretching
The first important step toward enjoying urethral stimulation is to train your urethra. What does it mean? It means that your urethra has to be stretched enough to accommodate toys you wish to insert. Most men have tight urethral canals – however, urethra can be stretched relatively easily. That is, if you go slowly and with care. Some men find it easy to stretch their urethra a little without any toys, just by gentle inserting of a pinky finger after a shower. This is also how many men discover they find this type of stimulation arousing.
While this type of experimentation is not problematic on its own, it’s important to keep in mind that you will need special toys to fully stretch your urethra. Also, forcing a finger down your penis is not the safest way to go, though it’s definitely not the most dangerous, either. Fingers are short, however, and they cannot train urethra properly. To really stretch your urethra you will need to use a special training toy. These urethral toys are small, smooth and specially designed to stretch your urethra so it can accommodate larger toys.
There are penis plug stretchers ideal for beginners who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. There are also urethral sounds made for stretching, but this is usually a more advanced step, once you wish to move from basic urethral stimulation to deep urethral stimulation. You may also opt to use special stretcher toys made for this purpose.
Whatever you do, keep in mind that stretching is not an optional step – it is a must. You need to go through this and you need to go slowly. This is the only way to enjoy urethral stimulation in a safe and secure way. Luckily, stretching is pleasurable and it goes hand in hand with experimenting and arousal, so you should not have a problem with it. Keep in mind, however: patience is the key. Never force anything down your penis if you feel resistance, pain or discomfort.
Getting Used to the Feeling
Another thing you need to achieve before you enjoy urethral stimulation to the fullest is to get used to the feeling. You are obviously intrigued and attracted to this type of stimulation if you wish to explore it further, so it’s a good first step.
Keep in mind, however, that once you start experimenting with trainer toys and stretchers, you will encounter true urethral stimulation. The sensation it gives may seem “strange” at first, maybe even unpleasant. While you should never force a toy if it causes discomfort or pain, you need to learn how to differentiate between these bad feelings from a regular sensation given by urethral stimulation. Some of it will be very pleasurable right from the start, while others will require some adjustment. Just keep going if this is something that arouses you and you will get used to the feeling so much you will start craving for more.
Words of Warning
Finally, a few words of warning. Urethral stimulation is fun and rewarding, but it should be approached with care and consideration. You need patience for this. This is not something you can do with force, and it’s not something you can do without preparation. Keep this in mind before you attempt any form of urethral play.
Some specific things to keep in mind:
- Use specialized toys. Never, ever use random objects for urethral play. It may seem easier to grab the first thing you can fit inside your penis, but it’s a bad way to go. Random household objects or even toys not specially made for urethral play are a bad choice. You need a specialized toy that is made with urethral play in mind. These toys are designed to be used safely and they will not damage your urethra or cause other problems. In order to stay safe, stick to these toys.
- Use beginner toys. There are many different urethral toys on the market. Some of them are made for medical play and fetish enthusiast, but others can be used in many different settings. What you need to pay attention to, however, is the size and design of a toy. If you are beginner, stay away from big, thick urethral toys. Opt for special beginner or trainer toys at first. Remember, the goal is to train and stretch your urethra before you can move on to the larger things! Never skip this step – this is crucial to ensure your satisfaction.
- Penis plugs or urethral sounds? Generally, it all depends on your preferences and the type of sensation you wish to experience. That being said, urethral sounds tend to be bigger and longer than penis plugs. They are made for deep urethral penetration. It’s therefore best to start with small penis plugs and build your way from there. However, there are also special beginner urethral sounds you may want to try, though they are recommended for those who are already familiar with urethral stimulation (at least a little) and who already have their urethra trained at least a bit.
- Be patient. As usual, it’s important to listen to your body and go slowly. Also, don’t forget lube – urethral stimulation requires a lot of lube. It is vital to make the experience as comfortable and smooth as possible. This is the only way to ensure a pleasurable urethral stimulation.
