To Sound or Not To Sound, That is The Question

A mate of mine has given me some penis sounds. Apparently his wife didn’t fancy using them on him so having tried them out solo he has passed them onto me.

There are four shiny metal sounds.

One about 15cm long and about 6mm thick with bumps all along
The second one is short about 30cm long and hollow with a ring in the end. The third is also about 30cm long with a solid 8mm diameter bullet and a ring. The fourth one is tapered with various bumps from about 4mm up to about 12 mm diameter.

My questions are:
Shall I give them a try?
What and why are there different sounds?
Can they do any damage to me?
What are the benefits for me?

My wife has said that she is willing to help me use them.

Defo consider giving them a try :grin:
Make sure to use a good amount of sterile lube for ease of access and enjoy!
Different shapes and sizes are there to add stimulation to see what feels best and for some to help train in stretching the urethra as it’s a type of kinky fetish.

I have tried a few times but always end up stinging from the process so not really keen to persue it though I know a lot of people can get more enjoyment from it.

Make sure as @AJSTAR said that you use a sterile lube and not one that contains glycerin as this can cause UTIs.

Also make sure you thoroughly clean the sounds your mate gave you if he has used them before. Normally putting them in boiling hot water for 10-15 minutes will help to sterlise them.

If you like the idea, give it a try.

Different ones for different sensations and play. Textures will feel different to smooth, different thicknesses is essentially the same as different dildo sizes; some will work better for you than others but do start with the thinnest you have. The hollow ones will allow you to leave them in and pee and/or ejaculate.

Yes, they can do damage. You need to go slowly and carefully. Don’t force them down or go too big as you can cause damage to the urethra. If you get bleeding, stop and get it checked out. As others have said, use plenty of sterile lube, if you really can’t get sterile, a brand new, unopened bottle of plain lube (or individual sachets) may be ok but be careful on ingredients, don’t double dip your sounds in lube, make sure you have clean hands. There is a risk of UTIs and similar from this.

Benefits - it feels good, can give indirect prostate stimulation

I have seen some vids of this and it makes me squirm a bit. I get a sick sympathy pain in my stomach watching it and could never do it I don’t think.
If you love it, great. Not for me…

I would suggest you do some research as well as asking opinions. Watch videos or better yet, ask your friend for a demonstration or to help you try it.

Shall I give them a try?
I assume you want to as you’re asking, so yes.
What and why are there different sounds?
Using the same thing each time would be boring and they different types will stimulate you differently.
Can they do any damage to me?
Like anything, yes.
What are the benefits for me?
They might feel good.

Thanks for all the advice and recommendations. I’ve watched sounding on porn sites and some are almost torture and extremely painful looking. Others are a bit more gentle.

Taking on board your helpful comments I am going to go gently and slowly and try it out this weekend.

I will report back my experience soon.

I’d probably avoid. As much as I love having the opening of the urethra licked, I wouldn’t want to put something up inside there.

Yes try them they can feel really nice( even my wife likes them in herself ), try the metal ones first and the short ones not the long ones, use a syringe if possible to inject lube inside yourself be gentle it should slide in pretty much with its own weight. If any are made from silicone note even with lube they can drag and may sting after when peeing , IF or when you use the longer ones remove very slowly at first one of mine is 35cm long and hollow with a stopper I also have a set of metal ones that go from 3mm(way too small and dangerous) up to 18mm my limit is 13mm at 8" long

There’s a LH guide to sounding somewhere

I thought I would let you all know how I got on with my first experience of sounding.

On Friday night I had a solo session and tried the small bullet with quite a lot of new lube. I had sterilised all four sounds before trying them. It fitted quite easily I was expecting to have trouble but it just dropped in. I next tried the hollow short sound and that fitted well and I liked the feeling I was getting with it in and just stroking gently. I had an orgasm which came very quickly and my semen sported out the opening in the steel tube.

On Sunday I tried again with my wife wanting to be involved. This time we tried the two larger sounds. First my wife dropped the thinner one in and it disappeared inside, which was a nice feeling as she massaged me. I then asked her to try the tapered one which had various bumps along it. I was curious to see how far it would go in. It slipped in with a coating of lube but stopped at the bump which I think was 10mm so I had found my limit and the feeling of my orgasm has incredible and totally different to the usual one.

I think I like sounding but only occasionally as the after effects were a stinging sensation when I pee’ed which subsided after an hour or so but we’re a little worrying for a first time experience.

I’ve worked at Lovehoney for over 7.5 years, so you can probably imagine that nothing shocks me any more when it comes to this sex and sex toys lark. But I cannot - ever, ever - get used to the idea of sounding!

But hey, all power to you if it’s your thing, and of course give it a go if you feel like it might be your thing.

This is something I have dabbled with in the past, but had more fun recently… getting properly ‘equipped’.

There is some great advice above, and there are I think videos in here … and on a well known website which will help understand how to do it.

I bought a set of smooth metal sounding rods … which weren’t that expensive. Theyre steel and smooth so don’t irritate or cause the burning sensation. I always clean them before, and after, and also clean them with hand sanitizer liquid (there is plenty of that about), and also then use medical sterile lube when playing. … I want to minimise risk of UTI.

I’m always relaxing when doing this, and take my time … it is erotic in its own way, and have managed to orgasm a few times now … not just the sounding alone I hasten to add!

I know this is not for everyone… probably not for most actually, but yet another avenue to explore if you are minded to.

Yes, I’ve noticed ElectraStim do sounds that plug in to stimulator units so as to transmit pulses of electricity out through the penis to another electrode such as a cock loop but the thought of it gives me nightmares. :cold_sweat:

I said it would probably sting a little, but as you found it goes away its your body telling you you over did it slightly, keep trying especially if your partner will help

I nearly lost my lunch just now when this antique silver retractable cocktail swizzle stick popped up on Bargain Hunt. :scream:

Both of us have always been open minded and adventurous to try anything once as far as our sex life is concerned.

Sounding was our latest adventure which I have to thank my generous friend for the introduction to full on sounding. I don’t think I will be doing it on a permanent basis but it may become an occasional treat.
