Embrace Sensual Exploration: Urethral Sounds for Women’s Pleasure

Until yesterday I had no idea that urethral sounds for women existed. Sounding, in case you don’t know, is the stimulation of the urethra with a probe. It is done medically to remove obstructions. The urethra is extremely sensitive and sounding is popular among  people seeking a different kind of erotic sensation.

The object for men is usually to stimulate the prostate (an erogenous area for a lot of men). Prostate massage more often takes place from the other side,from within the anus and it is interesting to have the sensation from the other side.

Urethral Sounds for Women

What then, could a woman possibly get from this practice, being as she doesn’t have a prostate. As soon as I looked it up it made sense. As some of us  know, the clitoris is not just the small bump on the outside of our body, it is like an iceberg, most of it is under the surface, Therefore, sounding has the same possibilities for women as it does for men, stimulating erogenous zones from a different angle.

Women say that sounding while masturbating can produce  orgasms that are incredibly intense and seem to originate from a different part of the body. Letting someone else do it to you can be an incredible act of surrender and trust. that is why it is popular in the BDSM scene.

The female urethra is incredibly fragile and it is much shorter and tighter than a man’s so this is not the kind of play you can just try out with out using the correct tools for the purpose.  You have to use objects specifically designed for the purpose and you start off small. The goal for most is usually to stretch the urethra so that larger objects and different sensations can be felt.

How to use Urethral Sounds for Women?

Some people aim to insert a little finger so that the clitoris can be masturbated in unison. Some want to accommodate a Princess Albertina piercing. (the equivalent of the male Prince Albert) The Princess Albertina passes through the urethra and exits at the top of the vagina. Whatever the aim. start with the smallest probe you can. It should be completely smooth with a rounded end, the wall of the urethra is extremely fragile.

Many sounds have small  ridges  to prevent over insertion. This is not so much of a problem for women as it is for men. The female urethra gets very narrow when you have gone as far as you should and pressure can be felt as the bladder is approached. There isn’t any reason to ever try to  push further as there is no improved sensation and there  is a  chance you may end up puncturing the  bladder. It really isn’t worth the risk.

How to Sterilize Utheral Sounds for Women?

Absolutely  everything you use must be meticulously sterilized. Lots of lube is needed and it should only be medical grade, like surgilube. It is better still if you can get it in individual packets. If this isn’t possible always drip a little of the lube from the tube in case the top has been contaminated. It is so easy to get a urinary tract infection from unwanted bacteria up there and infections can quickly spread to the kidneys which can end up being really serious.

If you have stretched wide enough to accommodate a little finger then you need to file your nails smooth and clean clean and clean some more. Have anti bacterial sprays or wipes for the sounds during play.

Can I Over Stretch my Urethra?

Never stretch further than you are ready.  The urethral opening looks tiny but it is larger than you would think. It opens up more when aroused so to get the best results from sounding it is best to be near to orgasm but not quite. The chances of experiencing orgasm the first time are slim. The sensations take some getting used to, and stretching is a slow process.

It might feel like you want to pee, it is best if you urinate before the start of play and afterwards. This must be done to not only empty your bladder, but to flush out your urethra! It is actually good practice to urinate after any sex for the same reason.

Never put anything in your urethra that hasn’t been designed for the purpose. Always use a sound that is long enough not to get lost in there. If you like it, you can always get the Princess Albertina I mentioned, the piercing massages the many sensitive spots inside the urethra and can be very arousing if you gently tug the jewelry or rub your clitoris.  Hope this helps those women who want to try urethral sounding.

The Evolution of Medical Sounds for Women

For over a century, women have been subjected to various medical procedures that, although necessary, often result in discomfort or even pain. One such procedure is medical sounding, a technique used primarily in gynecology. This article explores the history, applications, and advancements in medical sounding for women.

The Inception of Medical Sounding

Medical sounding, also known as sonding or urethral sounding, is a procedure that involves the insertion of a special instrument, known as a sound, into the body’s passages for probing and dilating. The two most common types of sounds used in medicine are urethral sounds and uterine sounds.

What are Urethral Sounds for Women?

Urethral sounds are designed to be inserted into the male or female urethra, with the purpose of stretching or unblocking a stricture. There are several types of urethral sounds:

  1. Bakes sounds – Long, thin metal rods with a bulbous bud at the end.
  2. Dittel sounds – These have a flat end and a rounded end.
  3. Hank sounds – These have a more pronounced curve at the ends and a metal rib on each end.
  4. Pratt sounds – These are longer urethral dilators with rounded and slightly bent ends.
  5. Van Buren sounds – These have very pronounced tips and applicators.

What are Uterine Sounds?

Uterine sounds, on the other hand, are intended for probing a woman’s uterus through the cervix to measure the length and direction of the cervical canal and uterus. These sounds are primarily used to open and dilate the cervix to gain access to the uterine cavity. Different types of Uterine sounds include:

  1. Hegar dilators – These have two rounded ends, are fairly short, and are mildly curved in shape.
  2. Sims sounds – These have a flat end and a rounded end.

The Evolution of Medical Sounding

Medical sounding has been practiced for over a century, with the design and application of the instruments remaining largely unchanged. However, the increasing need for improved patient comfort and reduced risk of complications has necessitated the development of more advanced and less invasive sounding devices.

The Limitations of Traditional Sounding Instruments

Traditional sounding instruments, like the tenaculum, cause pain and bleeding. The tenaculum resembles scissors with sharp hooks. It pierces cervix tissue without anesthesia during procedures, leading to trauma. This deters some women from procedures like IUD insertions.

The Advent of Modern Sounding Devices

In response to the limitations of traditional sounding instruments, companies like ASPIVIX and Ceek Women’s Health have pioneered the development of more modern and less invasive devices.

ASPIVIX, for instance, is developing a tool that replaces the sharp hooks of the tenaculum with a vacuum-based suction head. This atraumatic tool aims to provide a more gentle method of grasping and stabilizing the cervix.

Similarly, Ceek Women’s Health has launched a speculum made of plastic that delivers ultimate patient comfort thanks to a narrower bill, temperature-neutral material, and quiet operation.

The Future of Medical Sounding

The evolution of medical sounding underscores the need for more innovation in women’s healthcare. While progress has been made, more needs to be done to ensure that common gynecological procedures are not only effective but also comfortable and less traumatic for women.

As more companies join the movement to advance patient and provider experiences in women’s healthcare, it is hoped that the status quo will change, and that pain and discomfort during gynecological procedures will become a thing of the past.

Medical sounding for women has evolved over a century. Despite challenges, modern devices promise comfortable healthcare. Gynecology’s evolution brings hope for further innovations to enhance patient experience.
