An emerging trend in the BDSM world is the insertion of an object into the urethra. The inserted object is called a ‘sound’ or ‘urethra plug’. It is actually a form of masturbation in which the urethra is penetrated with the object. How to use penis plugs? And what are the Do’s and Don’ts? Expert explains!
Sounding, how do you do that?
Sounding literally means the insertion of ‘something’ into the urethra. Stimulating the urethra can be done by both men and women. Yet we see that the trend is particularly popular among men. Many men find the feeling of a stretched and pungent urethra very pleasant and exciting. The stimulation is carried out with a specially made toy or attribute. You can do this with a penis plug or with a dilator. It can be placed in the urethra until the prostate is reached. The stimulation can then be done in different ways. This allows you to make rotating or downward movements with the sound.
Why do people like BDSM?
A dilator is a, usually quite long, rod of surgical steel. This material ensures that it is very easy to clean. They also do not break, so this works safest. The penis plug is often shorter, with a ring at the end. This ring can stimulate the glance extra during the game. The difference between a dilator and a penis plug is mainly in use.
The penis plug is mainly used for extra stimulation. It can make the penis more sensitive, that an erection lasts longer and that the orgasm feels more intense. There are even hollow penisplugs . These make it possible to pass urine and semen. So you can also continue to wear very well if you want to use a penis plug for extra stimulation during sexual intercourse. The dilator is longer and is mainly intended to stimulate the urethra. Available at Lustplugs.
Types of dilators
Dilators can be divided into different categories:
Hegar – The hegar sound has a curved S shape and two ends with different thicknesses. These sounds are easy to insert and are relatively short. This model is therefore very suitable for people who want to try sounding for the first time.
Rosebud – This is one of the best known dilators and also very suitable for novice users. The sound has a ball at one end and a flat handle / rod at the other end. The top is specially designed for stimulation of the bladder. These toys can also be used by women. An example is this set of 3 dilators with round top .
Dittle – The Dittle resembles the Rosebud. In contrast to the Rosebud, this toy does not have a spherical end. The other end of the Dittle is flat and shaped in the shape of a triangle.
Van Buren – this is the most popular dilator among experienced users . This dilator has a characteristic J-shape and is very long. He is also bent at the end so that he can hit and stimulate the bladder or P-spot in the man.
Pratt – the Pratt is a curved dilator that has a convex shape at both ends. This dilator is slightly longer than other models and can therefore be inserted deeper. This dilator is suitable for both men and women.
Vibrating dilators – these models are primarily intended for people who have used a sound more often. You can masturbate with vibrating models. The vibrations provide an even more intense feeling.
Before you start sunning
Before you start sundering, it is important to pay attention to a number of things.
Choose the right model. Inexperienced users can best start with a single model, or a set with different sizes. As a beginner, prefer to leave out an extended set or a vibrating dilator. Do not go directly for a long model. Opt for a plug or a shorter sound, such as a Hegar dilator.
Choose the right size. Sounds have different thicknesses. A set is useful to test which thickness feels the best for you. The narrowest dilators have a diameter of 1.5 mm to 2 mm. The thickness dilators have a diameter.
Choose the material. Almost all dilators are made of stainless steel. This material is sterile. Yet there are also silicone dilators available. These are very suitable for men who want to try a dilator for the first time. The soft silicone material is extra easy to insert and feels less stiff.
Pay attention! As a beginner, never choose the thinnest dilator. The tissue on the inside of the penis is very thin and sensitive. A thin dilator can more easily perforate the urethra.
That’s how you get started
Sounding is a skill that is mainly learned by doing it. It may therefore be that the first time it does not quite succeed. No worries! You will find that insertion becomes easier and easier as you try more often.
Provide a sterile and well-cleaned sound beforehand. You can clean the sound with some alcohol to get rid of any bacteria and mold. Wash the genitals with hot water. Check the sound even more on sharp edges to prevent possible damage. Then take a comfortable position and carefully spread the opening of the penis. If necessary, you can withdraw the foreskin. Choose any lubricant to facilitate insertion. You can apply lubricant in the urethra, at the opening of your glance and at the end of the dilator. Make sure you do not use too much lubricant. The insertion may otherwise become slippery, which reduces the grip on the sound.
Now it’s time to bring in the dilator. Do this while the penis is in flaccid condition. When inserting, hold the penis straight up, at a 90 degree angle from the body. Then push in the sound about a thumb width. Then carefully insert the rest of the sound. Due to gravity it tends to slide inwards. Therefore, try to guide this yourself and never push the sound too hard. Once the dilator has been inserted, stretch the penis by holding it at the top. The urethra is stretched in this way.
Pay attention! The introduction of a Van Buren dilator requires a different technique. After inserting an inch width, change the angle of the penis by 45 degrees and let the penis gradually rise again.
Remove and aftercare
Are you ready to reach a climax? Always remove the penisplug or dilator in time to prevent your sperm from going anywhere. Do this slowly and carefully. Then clean the dilator with warm water and antibacterial soap. Clean it as sterile as possible with alcohol. Sounds of surgical steel can be burned out to kill bacteria. Always keep the dilator in a protective cover until the next use. Drink plenty of water to flush the bladder well. It may be that urination afterwards feels a bit burnt, possibly with a little blood. If this persists, or if you suspect an infection, consult your doctor.
