Beginners Guide To Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds

Guide to penis plugs

Urethral sounding can be a rewarding experience if done properly. Imagine how amazing it would feel if you could stimulate both the inside and the outside of your penis at the same time. Many men have enjoyed the unadulterated stimulation, and with this handy guide, you too can enjoy penis plugs and urethral sounds safely.

Which Penis Plug or Sound Should I Choose?

The rounded and tapered tip helps prepare your sensitive urethra for a gentle stretch as you ease your chosen penis plug or urethral sound through your meatus and into your urethra. Save the more extreme styles of penis plugs and sounds for when you've become accustomed to the sensation and work your way up. Generally it's good to have a penis plug with a ring or enlarged end so it doesn't slip in and get lost. As for material, stainless steel is the most common but you will also find aluminium, and silicone urethral sounds and penis plugs. These materials are body safe and withstand repeated sterilisation.


  • Use any old object lying around your house
  • Choose one of our more extreme styles or sizes of sounds


  • Choose a penis plug or urethral sound with a rounded, tapered tip

Be Safe & Sound

Safety first - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and you REALLY don't want to experience an infection!

  1. First off, sterilise your urethral sound or penis plug in boiling water for 3-5 minutes
  2. After this we recommend that you wipe down your urethral sounds and penis plugs with alcohol swabs
  3. Ensure your penis is clean, and wash your hands with hot water and anti-bacterial soap. If you want to be extra cautious you can wear surgical gloves

VeryDeep Sterile Lubricant

What Lubricant Should You Use?

Here at UberKinky we cannot stress this enough; you should only use a sterile lubricant. We sell several sterile lubricants which are perfect for urethral sounding or penis plug play. The lubricant helps your sound or plug glide into place comfortably while the sterile formula will keep you safe from harm.


  • Use non sterile lubricant or saliva


If it's your first time sounding GO SLOW!

If it's your first time GO SLOW!

As long as you're careful and start off slow, your first sounding experience should go smoothly. Just remember to use plenty of lube and relax. Take your time and enjoy a whole new world of stimulation. Start while your penis is soft by placing a blob of sterile lube right at the entrance of your penis. Holding your penis at a 90 degree angle from your body, slowly slip the sound or plug in. Try to let gravity and the weight of the sound naturally pull the sound down into your penis. Then once it's inserted more than four inches, it will usually rotate slightly.


  • Force your plug or sound down your penis


  • Let the sound naturally slide deeper into your penis

Enjoy! & Finish With a Flourish

Once you have your sound or plug in place and you're comfortable, experiment with light gentle strokes on your penis. Some men simply enjoy the sensation of the sound sliding in and out. Take it from Andy at Ruffled Sheets who recently played with one of our penis plugs:

"Personally, I just like to feel it slowly move up and down. It's a unique feeling. In some ways it's similar to a long, drawn out orgasm, but will last as long as you want it to..."
- Andy at Ruffled Sheets

After all this amazing new stimulation you'll be ready to let your orgasm surge through your body. Here are some things to think about. If you're using a hollow penis plug your prize load will simply come out the end without a second thought. However, if you are using urethral sounds or a solid penis plug, we recommend that you slide them out gently before ejaculation to prevent retrograde ejaculation.


  • Remove your penis plug or sound before ejaculation
  • Wait until your erection subsides before removing a sound with a defined curve
