You may have heard of sounding, and maybe you flinched at the thought? But if you open your mind to this new experience, a world of pleasure awaits.
Sounding is the act of inserting specifically made objects called “Sounds” into the urethra. This is the tube that connects your bladder and the tip of your dick and it happens to run right through your prostate. Sounding stimulates sensitive nerve endings through-ought the penis; creating amazing sensations that some guys have never experienced before.
Most sounds and sound sets are made out of smooth and polished stainless steel which is both easy to clean and durable. Silicone and other sounds have also become available and are a great flexible alternative which allow you explore deeper urethral play. Stainless steel sounds can often be bought in sets, this allows you to experiment with different sizes and work up to larger sizes over time.
For sounding you will also need a water based body safe lubricant which washes off very easily and won't irritate if any remains inside your urethra. Stay away from silicone and grease-based lubes. They will hang around for longer than needed and are more difficult to “flush” out of the urethra. The ideal lube is sachets of sterile medical lube.
Your hands (as well as your dick, balls & groin,) should also be as clean as possible and you should avoid over handling the insertion end of the sound if possible. If a sound gets dropped onto the floor or accidentally put down on a potentially unclean surface, you should not re-insert it until it has been cleaned properly.
When it comes time to play, you need to find a size you like, if it is your first time we recommend starting with something around a size 6. Thinner sizes such as a 4m or 2mm can be quite sharp but a 6mm sound is a good starting point for most people. Most guys may find that they can work up to an 8mm or 9mm sound quite quickly.
