CHOOSING A PENIS PLUG

Choosing a penis plug  can be a bit daunting the first time but what is even more intimidating is when you take it home and you are ready to use it the first time.  A mixed wave of emotions comes over you as you anticipate in your mind what it is going to feel like that your bodies natural defense gives you phantom sensations.  Do I go through with it or was it just a silly idea?  One dreamed up by some marketer who knows nothing about the urethral joy you want to experience and is only interested in selling you a $30 or $40 piece of metal.

Well let us go a little way to allay those fear and go through a step by step tutorial on how to insert a penis plug that very first time.  First up, a penis plug or wand or medical sound in most cases is a piece of surgical steel that is inserted into the urethra that may, or may not, result in sexual stimulation and play.

Choosing a Plug

Lets start off with saying your first attempt should be with a smooth, perhaps slightly tapered plug of no more than 100mm in length.  Do not listen to those that say it should be the slimmest size as this may cause a piercing that will be very painful and may require medical assistance.  A good safe thickness should be 4-8mm to start.  Now, for gods sake, purchase one from a reputable shop – do not look around the house for a knitting needle or screw or something else to insert into your urethra.  Look after your urethra, it is a very sensitive part of the body and if you do the things I am going to divulge to you now, it may also derive you great pleasures.

There are a multitude of different plugs in the market but you do not want to start with a silicone one, or a wavy one, or a dominating sound of over 200mm in length.  Lets keep it simple for the first time.  So we have adequately covered the basics, so lets get into the nitty gritty.

Coming From The Inside Out

You have heard all the wonderful things about cock plugs and the fabled ‘cumming from the inside out’ and your curiosity now has the better of you and it is time for you to experience this ‘holy grail’.  Well settle down a bit mister, a bit more work goes into it than purchasing the first plug you see and stuffing it down your cock that will make you reach your new sexual nirvana.  See perhaps you did not realize this but  those that have experienced this majestic sexual enlightenment are/were not newbies.  They took the time and effort to learn how to carry out their cock-stuffing in a safe and enjoyable manner first, and you must do too.  There are no short-cuts.

To achieve the incredible ‘cumming from the inside out’ you need to possess a hollow or cum thru or pee thru plug.  All three are the same thing but those are the most common names for it.  To cum you have to have a hollow tubed cock plug so that your semen can pass through.  The inside out feeling is created because the flow of semen whilst ejaculated is hindered by the narrow channel and so as you climax a small amount dribbles through the opening and the remaining backs up into your urethral canal.  The more you ejaculate, the more semen goes up your urethra, creating that inside out feeling.

BUT, unfortunately for you newbies it is my humble suggestion that you use a solid plug first.  The solid plug should have a stopper, safe bend or flare at the end to make sure that you do not put the whole thing up your urethra and then have to rush to the medical center to have it removed.  I have a couple of recommendations for beginners plugs but the Ask Men Starter Penis Plug I feel is the perfect starter and you can pick it up for a measly $20AUD.  The link is from adultsmart but you can try and find it online somewhere else if you wish.

This plug is safe, especially for a newbie.  You will notice that the tip is rounded, no sharp edges and the plug is slightly tapered. The end is curved so you will never have a problem with it going all the way in.   The handle gives you greater control for bringing it in and out.  This to me is the perfect training plug as it cannot be inserted to deeply or to shallow.

So you have taken my advice and gone out online or to your local shop and purchased the Ask Men Starter Penis Plug and have unwrapped it, looking it and asking what now?  Don’t worry my friend I am not going to leave you in the lurch.  As promised here goes my step by step guide –

STEP ONE:

When you receive your product have a look at it, feel it to ensure that it is smooth, there are no irregularities or sharp bits on it.  Trust me you must do this as most penis plugs are hand-made and although it has never happened to me I have heard of someone inserting a penis plug and slicing their urinary tract.  You don’t want to explain that one to the doctor.  This step should be followed each and every time you use a plug (even one you have already used) as it may have dropped and a dint or ridge may also cause damage.

 

STEP TWO:

Once you have made sure that the plug is safe to use give it a wash using an antibacterial toy cleaner or placing the plug in boiling water.  This will be going inside you so it is essential to make sure it is sterile.

Say NO to Urinary Tract Infections!

STEP THREE:

If you placed it in boiling water let it cool down, although many people prefer to slip the penis plug in whilst it is still warm.

STEP FOUR:

Bring out the lubricant.  Many urethral insert enthusiasts carry on about getting a Surgilube, or only use water based lubricant.  These are great lubricants don’t get me wrong but if you like extended play the urethra actually absorbs water so you will be regularly having to re-lube.  I personally use Superslyde which is a silicon lubricant, however many say that using silicon lubricant may cause a UTI.  It has not with me but it may with others, so I will allow you to make your judicious decision on that one.  However, to start with use the water based ones.

STEP FIVE:

This to me is as important for a newbie as step one.  Put on some of your favorite beats, relax, do some gentle breathing, relax some more, have happy thoughts as you put some lube on, and if you can in the eye of your penis.  DO NOT FORCE IT.  If it does not go comfortably…relax, do some gentle breathing, relax some more, have happy thoughts….  Once your are lubed up lube up the insertible shaft of your plug…

STEP SIX:

Take it slow…. Did you hear me??? SLOWLY!!!! Slowly slide it down the eye of your pee hole.  If you have relaxed enough and you are doing it slowly it should slide in with no resistance and little or no discomfort. If you force it I almost guarantee you will never do it again and you will think that all of us that love this male sex toy play are nuts.  I got news for you, we are not nuts, and you are a chump for not following these steps that will addict you to this fantastic fetish.  I cannot stress this enough, if you experience resistance or it is feeling very uncomfortable STOP and .relax, do some gentle breathing, relax some more, have happy thoughts….

I liken this step is a bit like breaking your virginity and if you do it right the first time you will enjoy it and every time after that will be better and you can begin your urethral explorations.

STEP SEVEN:

Now you have inserted the plug into your urogenital canal, sounded professional I did then (pat on back whilst LOL).  You will be feeling aroused but probably have not got a full erection.  Starting very slowly begin to pull the plug out (if you have the Ask Men with the handle) and insert again slowly.  Do this, you can slowly pick up the pace, but being a first time user not too fast – you will have plenty of time to experiment at a later date.  Ensure that you are comfortable and experience no pain – for a novice user I would limit it to a maximum of 5 minutes.

Pleasurable Cock Play
Urethral Joy

STEP EIGHT:

Remove the plug, check your pee-hole, if you can, go to the toilet and urinate.  The first time you do some cock-stuffing there may be some spotting in your urine.  This is common so do not stress as long as there is no pain or discomfort.   Clean and sterilize your plug.

Now That Wasn’t So Bad Was It?

Whilst you were stroking the plug inside your urethra you will probably have achieved a full erection.  You would have felt extremely pleasurable and different sensations to normal sex.  After you have urinated you will probably want to jerk off as it has turned you on.  All those things are fine but you must give yourself at least 24 hours before you try more penis plug play – this is for your safety.

The next day you can try 7 minutes, and the next 9.  Slowly work yourself up to the level that you are most comfortable and enjoy the most.  My advice is not to expand your penis plug range for at least a few weeks and more prudently a month.  Then it is time for the fun to begin.

Try the different penis plugs, cock wands, medical sounds until you find the style that best suits you.  You may enjoy masturbating whilst a sound is inside your urethra, or getting a hollow plug with a glans ring that you can cum thru (inside out), some men like to wear them whilst they are having sex and other wear them for extended periods.   This fetish is very adaptable to you and your needs. there are heaps of different penis plugs on the market.  There are solid ones, cum-thru, smooth, corkscrew, tapered, double ended, stepped and more for you to discover.

So there you have it.  Always remember cost is not always everything with these type of intimate products and buy from a reputable store.  Saving yourself $10 or $15 and ending up at the local hospital is no saving at all.

Be safe and be well!

Penis Plugs vs Urethral Sounds

Penis plugs are generally made from medical grade surgical steel and are used to increase sensations in the urethral tract of men.  This sensation often results in an erection and even ejaculation and due to the constriction of the plug will often increase the length of time the ejaculation takes.  Many people describe the effect as that of pleasurable pain and is a popular tool for those into bondage, fetish, S&M and water sports.

A huge variety of penis plugs exist including vibrating ones, tapered ones, ones with ridges, curved ones and also those designed specifically for people with penis piercings like the prince albert piercing.  Most users of penis plugs enjoy cum thru plugs that allow you to urinate and ejaculate easily whilst wearing them – allowing the wearer to have them on all day. It is important to remember that a penis plug has to be sterile before use and cleaned after use.  Also ensure that when removed the wearer urinates to clean out the urethra.  Penis plugs range in sizes but generally will be no more than 12cm and are not designed nor do they reach the bladder and rarely do wearers contract a urinary tract infection (UFT).

Keep It Clean

Urethral sounds are medical probes that are designed to stretch the wall of the urethra and remove any obstacles from it.  Sounds are designed to reach the bladder and once a sound enters the bladder when it is removed usually urination will immediately follow.  As the sounds reach deep inside there is always a chance that a Urinary Tract Infection can be contracted so it is important to use in a sterile environment. A popular type of sex play is urethral play where the sound is inserted deep inside to the bladder via the urethral track.  The sound is then manipulated to cause erotic sensations, many times described as being painful but pleasurable.    Sounds are also used to expand the urethral to allow for genital piercings. Recently sounds have included variation’s of vibrating and ringing to increase sensations whilst using.It is important to use sounds carefully as misuse can cause tearing, irritation, bleeding.  Poor quality steel can also be a cause of UFTs and untreated UFTs can cause bladder and kidney infections so always buy from a specialist store.

The sensations experienced using urethral inserts can be outstanding and like nothing else experienced before.  When used correctly and the player is totally relaxed, the orgasms that can be achieved are simply stunning.  There is a growing number of men using them and incorporating them in their masturbatory play.  When inserted and the penis is stroked awesome sensations are experienced on the inside and exterior of the dick.

Take your sex play to a whole new level but remember take it slowly.  It takes time to get just the right touch – so practice makes perfect.  Those that experience urethral joy often will then challenge themselves with urethral dilating which is the use of longer and wider sounds that expand the urethral opening.  There are no hard and fast rules but be warned this type of play can become addictive and caution should be practiced so as not to end up in the ward of an emergency room.

There are so many choices of plugs, sounds, wands and of different materials.  Always purchase a high quality device as it is going into the most sensitive parts of your body.  Don’t skimp on a few dollars and buy on aliexpress or some other Chinese site, choose a reputable online store that offers customer service and more importantly piece of mind.

Penis plugs vs urethral sounds similarities and differences:

  • Both are utilized as a part of urethral play
  • Both are embedded into the tip of the penis
  • Both can improve sexual joy
  • A penis fitting is intended to be worn amid sex and masturbation exercises, sort of like adornments. Some are solid, and some are hollow, to permit pee and semen to go through.
  • Penis plugs are typically shorter and in some cases have a glans ring so that they can be worn whilst going out
  • Sounds are fundamentally longer (at least 100mm) and are generally smooth.  Some exceptions like the dominator series are ribbed but generally the length and width determines the sound.
  • Sounds can be moved in and out while masturbating. Sort of like kneading within the penis. Using tender strokes will bring orgasms quickly.
  • Some penis plugs can be worn whilst having sex.
