Penis plugs versus urethral sounds: Know the difference

Both used during urethral play, yet slightly different. 

Penis plug users will wear the urethral plug  during masturbation, thus providing sensations from the inside out. Some plugs can be solid and some hollow, such as the cum through plug = allowing liquids to pass through. 

Urethral sounds are also inserted during penis sounding, they are usually longer and can reach the bladder - the most direct way to reach the prostate. 

Please refer to our collection filter in order to choose the right one for you. 

What is a penis plug and why is it used? 

This particular type of sex toy is used mostly forurethral sounding. A penis plug is gently inserted into the opening of the urethra to stimulate nerve endings to reach new highs in your sexual experience. The practice of cock stuffing is called urethral play and it is more and more common nowadays for solo play or together with a partner. Indeed, medical fetish involves two parties and the use of penis plugs to gently stretch the urethra and penetrate the penis. Once you get accustomed with penis plugs, you can go for longer versions, which are urethral sounds.

What does urethral sounding with a penis plug feel like?  

Using urethral toys will lead you to new highs in your sexual pleasure and experiences. Basically an orgasm from the inside while inserting and masturbating. Your urethra will become sensitive to every touch as it has tons of nerve endings to be stimulated. 

Everyone is different yet this comment describes the best how sounding feels like: “ it is like you’re being touched inside in a way which you will never have experienced before…

…which you can’t experience any other way and which feels totally unnatural but also strangely good. It’s like you’re feeling a sensation that you SHOULDN’T be able to enjoy but you do and you can’t help wanting just a LITTLE bit more.”Source BigMikeUK

Contrary to popular belief, sounding doesn't hurt if done properly. You should never force a sound inside, so if you feel pain or resistance, you should stop and try a smaller sound. 

Here is a video explaining urethral sounding: 

What Penis plug size should i get? 

Beginners should go ahead with penis plugs having the average diameter of a mal urethra - 6 to 8mm. However, it is not something easy to measure and you will know your diameter only when you try by yourself. For the length, no more than 6” for beginners and go for more once the urethra is stretched and capable of accommodating large and long toys. 

Can I use a penis plug during sexual intercourse? 

It is not recommended as there is a risk of hurting your partner during sexual intercouse. The cock plug might be rubbed on soft tissues which might cause injuries.  If you decide to use it together with your partner, we would recommend plugs with glans rings, that way it wont come out during intercouse and also wear condoms to little frictions.

Can I stimulate the prostate by sounding? 

Definitely. Way faster than prostate milking by the back door,prostatic uretha will help you reach you this ultimate stimulation. Please use special uretha sounds made for it - with a curved rod. It is pretty dangerous so you need to be an experienced user. 

How to do urethral sounding safely? 

Always go slow, it will take some time to stretch the urethra properly. In order to start your cock stuffing journey, you will need quality rods (stainless steel or silicone), a special surgical lube (view article) and take care of hygiene and sterilization. 

Start with a toy which is not too small, neither too big. Just the right size for a steel sound will  depend on your body. 

Here are the steps for safely sounding: 

  1. Clean your genitals, hands and penis plug. 
  2. Apply special surgical lube to the plug itself and to the rod. 
  3. Start with a half erect penis, open the uretha by holding your willy in one hand. Start the job by placing the uretha plug at the entrance. 
  4. Let the rod enter slowly without forcing it. 
  5. When the plug or sound stops moving, wiggle it a bit - to see if there is still some space. 
  6. Once this urethral dilator is inserted, you can start moving it up and down for an ultimate urethral masturbation.

Testimonials: have you ever tried urethral sounding - How was it? 

“Sounding is pleasurable. The penis becomes more sensitive with the sound in the urethra.

Some use long sounds that reach the prostate and stimulate it.”


“The best way to describe it is it transfers the sensation of stroking into your urethra. Also, when you pee and have a nice strong stream there is a pleasant sensation especially if you gently pinch or squeeze the bottom of your penis. If you press a finger or two hard into the base of your cock between the shaft and the balls while masturbating you get a small sample of what it kind of feels like. As the sound shifts around when you masturbate, it can be quite intense.

Finally, during orgasm, there’s a pressure build-up behind the sound that draws out and intensifies the actual orgasm.”


“The idea of it being taboo is what turned me on about it.

I haven’t progressed into anything bigger but I have arouge plug not too big or too small.

Taking small insertions instead of fully inserting is more pleasurable in my opinion.

It may sound weird but watching it go in is equal in pleasurable.”
