Safely Sounding!

We care about you and what you to feel at mind when buying our products and what you can expect when you use them. We also respect what you’re into so I’ve created this how to sound safely guide! This is merely a guide put together from information we’ve sourced from online sources. Please keep in mind that we are not medical doctors, always seek medical advice prior to sounding.

What is sounding you may ask?

Well, I am really glad you did! Sounding is the use of smooth rods, made metal or silicone. The rods are then pushed into the urethra for the purpose of pleasure, this is a pretty advance sexual kink play and falls under the medical play umbrella. This can be both men and women, but in my experience has been more common among the male clientele at Ohzone! Vagina sounding uses different equipment as vaginas are obviously shaped differently and have smaller urethras!  For the purpose of this article, I’ll be looking at sounding for men this time. I know this sounds (see what I did there) excruciatingly painful but done right it can be lots of fun for the recipient.  Some sounders calling the feeling intense and pleasurable, particularly as it hits their prostate.

However, sounding can be dangerous if you’re not careful. The urethra walls are very thin and can be easily damaged – this can lead to internal scarring. I don’t need to spell this out for you; this can cause ongoing medical issues so I am warning you…


Okay, the first thing you’ll need to do is buy a sounding set, you can find single sounding bars or sounding sets in your local Oh zone! I would recommend buying the set, you’ll save money in the long run by buying the set and they will last you practically forever. At this point your we are going to recommend that you also purchase surgical lube. Surgical lube is best for sound as it’s sterile, water lube is also suitable for sounding. We advise, like for most toys, against using silicone lube. Also, your saliva isn’t lube… it’s an awful idea, don’t even consider it.

Bear in mind that cleanliness matters and you have an increased chance of getting an infection from the germs from the outside world getting into your penis. Make sure you clean your bars with toy cleaner beforehand, just to be sure. Perhaps you should also have a shower before you start sounding. Please ensure you clean your sounding bars after use as well as before.  Cleanliness is next to godliness, right?

Now that you’re all clean, your toys are clean, you have a sounding set and sterile or water based lube it’s time to pick a bar. As a beginner you may be tempted to use the smallest bar, don’t. Smaller thin toys can slip in easy but can also cut you as they are difficult to control and cause damage to your urethra. This doesn’t mean you should use the biggest bar either, for obvious reasons. Your bladder is located inside this region of the body you can cause serious damage to your bladder if you are not careful. According to a quick google search you should be aiming for a bar that is a similar size to that of your urethra, with lube the bar should feel snug inside your penis. Beginners should aim to go slow, control the bar, acknowledge the feeling and do not push past the bend in your sounding bar. Keep the bend or the curve in your sounding bar facing your face.

Particularly for beginners it is suggested that you steer away from dual sexual activities during your sounding session. That means no sex with your sounding bar in, no butt plugs, no masturbators, NOTHING. Your focus should be on sounding and sounding only.

Overall, sounding can be an intense rush, but it has risks and only after a bit of research you should start sounding. Make sure you have all the information at hand, including what to do if something goes wrong. Like I said earlier, we are not medical staff and I would recommend speaking to your local doctor about it before commencing sounding. If you’re comfortable I would also suggest having your: wife, girlfriend, fuck buddy, friend (pending on how close you are) in the room with you, particularly on your first sounding session. This is one of those occasions where liquid courage definitely will not help you, avoid alcohol as it will thin your blood and if you do have a bleed it will be much worse.

Unsafe penis play

So, I hope I haven’t frightened you away, done correctly I am sure everyone will love sounding. Be safe and look after one another!

Popular Sex Toys In Australia!

Just recently, a major online sex retailer based in the United Kingdom, and currently extending its business deals mainly in Australia and United States, found out that women in Australia purchase more sex-toys compared to men.

A recent survey carried out in Australia this year during the National Masturbation Month shows that out of 472 women and 715 men, 65% of them prefer sex toys during masturbation, and 23% owned more than 11 sex-toys in their home. In addition, the research indicates that over 50% of all Australian citizens possess more than 5 sex-toys and only around 2% of them have never bought even one.

Another research conducted at Sydney University showed that self-masturbation can prevent various diseases including diabetes, cystitis, and prostate cancer. They found out that ninety-four percent of men confidently admit that they do masturbate, as compared to eighty-five percent of women – the thing babies usually do even before they are born!

Due to a great many benefits of masturbation, which range from preventing UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections), relieving stress, and being able to last longer, the use of particular sex toys has become very popular among the Australian people.

The following features the most frequently used Sex-Toys-in-Australia and the reasons behind their taste.

#1. Rabbit Vibrators

A rabbit-vibrator is very different and unique kind of vibrator compared to the initially used penis-shaped vibrators or dildos. What is even more lovable about this vibrator is its ability to simultaneously pleasure the clitoris while being inserted into the vagina using the internal stimulating shafts that are almost shaped like rabbit ears. Possibly, this is why most people in Australia have fallen in love with these unique devices.

People use these vibrators most frequently due to the fact that they are able to stimulate the g-spot and the clitoris at the same time, combining orgasms. You can hardly find the vibrator that can combine all these tasks together. That’s why rabbit-vibrators tops to this list.

Rabbit-vibrators are a necessary requirement for every sex-toy collection. They come in different varieties of features, colors, and sizes, and so there is a high chance of finding the one that suits you.

#2. The Bullet Vibrators

Bullet-vibrators are one of the most frequently used sex-toys in Australia today. They are created using either metallic or plastic material. In general, they are shaped like a real bullet, and they are very powerful when being used.

Much like egg-vibrators, bullet-vibrators form the basic necessity of almost every adult in Australia. These vibrators are quite popular and usually affordable. They are mainly designed to stimulate the clitoris and

They are designed to short and narrow to improve portability and people cannot easily notice them when carried in public. Most of them are water-proof, rechargeable with a long-lasting battery, and can be cleaned very easily – with just water and soap. Moreover, they can fit perfectly into anyone’s arms, and their performance is excellent.

Also, most bullet-vibrators can be disguised easily as mascara or lipstick. Their popularity falls in all these features.

#3. Dildos

This type of a sex-toys have been used since the historic times. Possibly, they are the first sex-toys to be used in the whole world. Still, dildos are as frequently used as ever today. Some people find them boring, but they don’t have to be.

Today, dildos are designed in many different varieties. They come in different shapes, materials, colors, sizes, and texture. Generally, they are made specifically for internal stimulation. The quality and design of today’s dildos are quite impressive and this makes them very popular.

Majority of couples go for dildos in situations when they want to introduce a sex toy into their relationship. Others go for them when they want to have a little fun when their boyfriends are away or when they are far away from the country for business trips. Still, other people go for these toys to survive a break-up and indeed, they make a very good couple.

In Australia, operated-dildos (work without batteries) are more popular since they are discreet and not noisy. They include realistic, ultra-realistic, unicorn, king cock, and beginners dildos. It’s fun to play with a perfect dildo no matter what material it’s made of. They closely feel like a real thing when being used.

Dildos are created to perform specific purposes. For instance, G-Spot dildos are curved at the tip to enable them to touch the g-spot for a powerful sensation every-time they’re being used. Anal-dildos are designed specifically for anal stimulation and are made in such a way that they are safe to use for the anal.

This are many other reasons makes dildos among the most frequently used sex-toys in Australia.

#4. Strap-Ons

Strap-Ons are not only used by women but also men. They are designed to give both vaginal and anal pressure. When purchasing these sex-toys, one need to buy a dildo that is made of a non-toxic material and a harness that is free from phthalate. This ensures that one is kept free from cancer and hormonal disruptions.

One of the major reasons why strap-on sex-toys are very popular in Australia is because they create great sex-positions, suitable for prostate massage, allows for hands-free and double penetration, and even makes it easier for people to masturbate. They can be used to manage erectile dysfunction in men.

These sex toys are mostly preferred by women when they want to have oral, vaginal, or anal sex in absence of a male partner. Men can also use them either anally or orally in absence of a female partner. And both of these parties can use them for masturbation. Men use then, particularly for prostate massage.

Strap-Ons can also be used alongside other sex-toys when masturbating for improved sexual orgasms. They can give pleasure to both parties at the same time and there is physical body contact during the action – improving sexual intimacy.

#5. Egg Vibrators

These tools are similar to bullet-vibrators but they are smaller, more round and discreet. They have a tear-drop shape – a shape that looks like that of an egg. Mostly, they come with a remote connection wire or simply wireless.

These vibrators are easier to handle and move about directing vibrations to the parts you want. The devices, no matter smaller in size, are very powerful and usually focus sexual sensations better as compared to some other sex-toys.

Egg-vibrators perform many other functions including vaginal stimulation, anal use or even clitoral stimulation during masturbation or sexual intercourse.

In Australia, many adults use these kinds of vibrators and other sex-toys.

I Became An Alpha Masturbator!

In the world of personal masturbators, few products can compare to the Fleshlight. With its streamlined design and functionality, it’s easy to understand how it’s the No. 1 male sex toy in the world.

But a toy that is putting an end to the monopoly is the Apollo Alpha Stroker 1 from leading adult merchandiser California Exotic Novelties.

The following is a review based on by first impressions of this toy. Both positive and negative aspects of what I consider to be a revolutionary toy in a market monopolised by big name brands.

Upon initial inspection, the box is an appealing combination of bright imaging and impressive detail. From the bold silver font to the detailed breakdown of the toys impressive array of functions everything about the box drags you in.

Unlike most packaging for adult toys which are so convoluted and difficult to open they may contain nuclear launch codes instead of the latest vibrator, the Apollo is streamlined and easy to open whilst maintaining cleanliness and product integrity.

What I Liked:

There’s a few things I was a fan of with regards to the Apollo, The fact that’s its rechargeable is a huge plus, with most high quality toys forgoing the need for batteries. Despite the power of the vibrations, which are impressive, the toy itself is whisper quiet, a testament to the quality.

The entry point design is varied among the different models of the Apollo, with either a gender neutral design or a vulva based design that appeases men of all sexual proclivities.

The sleeve is very pliable and easy to remove which at first impression would mean an easier cleaning experience but the design of the sleeve is to promote greater suction which means unlike other masturbators that have a hole at the bottom of the sleeve, this sleeve does not. Which means a complicated inversion of the sleeve is required to clean it.

A major selling point of the Apollo is the customizable tightness. This is achieved by two pressure pads situated on either side of the toy which can be squeezed by the user to create the ideal pressure scenario.

With its streamlined design and ergonomic functionality the Apollo is easy to use, the one push start is very simple and the functions button making it effortless to find your perfect orgasm.

For all of this on offer with all the functionality and vibrational patterns, one of the most impressive things about the Apollo is its affordability. While it still retails at over $150. When you look at what you’re getting for that price. It’s definitely good bang for your buck!!!

Male Sex Toy

Now it’s time to acknowledge the flipside. No toy is perfect and the Apollo is no different. The following are my own personal criticisms on an otherwise fantastic toy.

As previously mentioned, the sleeve design does not allow for easy cleaning like other designs. While this allows for greater suction, I’m sure I’m not the only one that would sacrifice a little suction for greater cleanliness. Especially given the nature of the toy!!!

The texture of the sleeve was a little softer than I was expecting from previous experiences touching ‘faux flesh.’ In my experience the “Fanta-Flesh” range is the most lifelike in terms of suppleness and firmness. The design of the Apollo sleeve is a little soft and squishy for my liking.

My final criticism is the 30 function feature. I’m not sure if I’m lacking the sensitivity to pick up on the minutiae but I struggled to tell the difference with a lot of the vibrational patterns.

However the positives definitely outweigh the negatives in this situation. I would definitely recommend the Apollo Alpha Stroker 1.

Getting The MALE EDGE!

Penile Extension
So, when I was given the assignment to review the Male Edge I was a little nervous, I mean I am lacking the equipment to extend anything. However, I am nothing if not a researcher and so in the name of science I researcher the heck out of this product. So, here’s what I’ve learned, observed and researched and experienced of the MaleEdge penis enlarger.
About the company:
Until today I had never heard of Male Edge, a quick Google search leads me to discover that the company has been creating penis enlargers since 1995! The company has focused on two key functions with the design of MaleEdge: ease of use and comfort of the user. The makers claim the product is stylish, discreet and simple to use as well as guaranteeing it will extend your penis is both length and girth.
What is a penis extender and how it works:
According to the company the penis extender is a product that is work over your penis to stretch it. The product will stretch the penis skin both in length and width as the device is worn for several hours per day. Penis extenders are medically proven to give men longer penises without the means of surgery, which means no post-op care and it’s all natural. A penis extender is also used to fix a curve in the penis, so basically it’s a great method in achieving your dream dick.
Unwrapping this product was lots of fun, the presentation is absolutely beautiful. (Gosh, you can tell a woman wrote this review now) The case was in a vibrant red zip-up case which was firm and held its shape when pushed and squeezed – protecting your product inside. Inside the case is a ruler to measure you initial results and for your later results to compare. There is also an instructional DVD to walk you through your extending steps. Finally, your extending product and protective penis gear are also placed inside in a neat little carry case which would be ideal for travel.
Product Usage:
The most alluring thing about the MateEdge is the simplicity to it; it really can be used by anyone. The instructions are not complex and the instructions are as follows:
·         Adjust the length of the extender to your current penis size.
·         Attach the product on your penis.
·         Tighten the strap around your penis, just below the glans.
·         Adjust the traction according to your level of comfort by pushing the rods.
·         Wear the device for 4-6 hours.
·         Enjoy your extra inches for the rest of your life!
Like I’ve said, I don’t have a dick so unfortunately I couldn’t test this bad boy out because we all know if I was a dude I’d have a massive dick. I read countless reviews and ratings on this product and I could not find a review under 3 stars and even those were hard to come by. Most men claimed they gained 2 inches from this product and the images supplied also highlighted not only length but girth growth. I was relatively shocked to see the change in a penis size and shape in as little as 2-3 months.
Best used by:
Men obviously, particularly those seeking a non-invasive or surgical approach to gaining some girth and length to their manhood.
Positives of the MaleEdge:
·         No surgery
·         Lifelong results
·         Expected growth of two to three inches over a longer period of time
·         Your girth will also be increased
·         Hand-made
·         Made of light-weight and high-quality materials
·         Comfortable to wear (according to the reviews)
·         Affordable and less expensive compared to other products
·         Covered by a money-back guarantee
Negatives of the MaleEdge:
·         Can be bulky in pants and will require boxers over jocks to wear comfortably
·         Commitment to the product, users will need to wear it every day to achieve their results
·         Unlike pills or surgery this product takes time to work (will not have overnight results)
·         Taking it off for bathroom breaks will annoy you but it will be worth it in the end
Final Thoughts:
Overall, despite not being able to use this product myself I have several friends I believe would enjoy this product. I would not hesitate in recommending this product to friends or loved ones as well as customers. The company, MaleEdge have worked tirelessly at having this product classed as a medical device to give their consumers peace of mind. MaleEdge also believe in this product so much that they offer a money back guarantee if it doesn’t work for you, you literally have nothing to lose in trying this product.
