Sounding? Does that have anything to do with sound? No! 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 do you sound? And what are the Do’s and Doníts? Is urethral insertion safe? We explain!
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.
Penis plug or dilator
A dilator is a, usually quite long, bar 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 glands 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 penis plugs. 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.
There are many kinds of dilators and penis plugs available online. You can check out this online store because they have a site wide sale here for a cheap cock plug.
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. Example of hegar dilators is the single silicone dilator of 6mm.
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 or 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. However, unlike 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. An example is the Single End Dilator
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.
