I'm a pretty kinky guy. Love outfits and uniforms, some bondage, roleplay, etc. Even curious about watersports.

But sounding? What the hell is the appeal of this? Just thinking of it makes my dick shrivel up.

Please explain the appeal.

what is sounding?

by Anonymousreply 107/30/2010

Cock-stuffing, or "sounding" as it is called in the S&M community, involves inserting smooth, long, and thin surgical steel rods called "sounds" (hence the name "sounding") into a man's urethra. The two most commonly used "sounds" are the Van Buren, which has a J-shaped curve on the end, and the Dittle, which is straight. Other objects, such as thermometers, may do the trick, but metal sounds are recommended because they are easier to clean and have no chance of breaking when in use. While a glass thermometer may be readily available, the risk of breaking (and leaking harmful mercury) makes this a risky option. %0D %0D Sounders use lots of lube, so the "sound" can easily slide in on its own (gentle guidance may be necessary; pushing or forcing can cause tearing of the fragile tissue). If you encounter a constriction in the urethra that the "sound" will not pass through (most likely scar tissue), do not try to drive it through. More lube and a narrower sound may be more safe and successful. %0D %0D Saliva isn't generally recommended as a lubricant because it dries quickly. Also, sugars from the mouth can be found in saliva that may cause urinary tract infections (UTIs). Sugars also can be found in some types of lube, sometimes listed as glycerin in the list of ingredients. Ultimately, a water- or silicone-based, glycerin-free lube with a thin consistency will probably work best for "sounding." Silicone-based lubes are longer lasting, but water-based lubes may have a thinner consistency. However, some people find silicone-based lubes to be a bit harder to clean up. Men find what works by experimenting. %0D %0D People enjoy using "sounds" for the pleasurable sensations felt while being inserted. They are also popular in the S&M community as a form of power exchange. Some of the curved "sounds" make getting an erection extremely difficult. If a penis starts to become erect, the person inserting the sound must wait until the erection subsides before continuing. Often sounds are locked into place so that a submissive partner cannot get an erection. %0D %0D The main risks with "sounding" include tearing or cutting the urethra and infection. Anything inserted into the urethra is to be cleaned to reduce the chance of infection. Some discomfort may be felt later if the sound has stretched the urethra. If that happens, people use smaller "sounds." Some men also feel burning when urinating, due to irritation. If the feeling continues for an extended period of time, the urinary tract may have become infected. If this occurs, or if there is blood in the urine, the person needs to see a health care provider. For those who use sounds, being open and honest with the provider is vital, in order to discuss alternatives for avoiding infection if they plan to continue "sounding." %0D

r2, that's revolting.

It's probably best not to risk tearing or damaging your urethra particularly considering how much you need your if for nothing else--to piss. Stay away from sounding.

Agreed ... coming from somebody who has been catheterized (for medical reasons, bitches) too many times, don't screw around with your urethra.

Dress up, role play and "curiosity" about water sports does not equal kinky.

I can't even understand how that can be pleasurable.

VERY hot feeling. Hard to describe, but it is intense. Make sure you use sterile lube. And "revolting"? Nah... try the cologne thread for that.

Jayzus as a female I am horrified. FUckin a.

by Anonymousreply 1307/31/2010

Girls can play too, r13 ;) - just use shorter sounds because your urethra is not as long as men's.

Jesus. The things you learn on this board. I think I'm getting the vapors.

I know someone that was sounding and anal punching at the same time, it turned out to be pretty catastrophic.

The restriction is kinda hot but risking damage doesn't seem worth it.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2010

I have watched a number of clips on this and think it looks pretty interesting. Would take a lot of trust though, in the other person's technique and skill.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2010

What is the real purpose of these "thin surgical steel rods", R2 mentioned? I assume they are not manufactured for sexual pleasure but for some medicinal use? Just wondering what that use would be.

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2010

Maybe dilating the urethra for those who need it, or for feeling out obstructions? Any DL docs on board?

Some are able to permanently enlarge their urethras in this manner to accommodate their partner's penis.

no thanks.

oddly, I've gotten this question from my straight friends.

Ok, I know someone who is into this, and I was amazed by the width of instrument he was able to jam in there. He could probably take an index finger, but a penis? No way. Unless his partner was a six-year-old.

I enjoy it every now and then. I use some stainless steel chopsticks with rounded edges. I can fit two in at the same time. I little gentle stretching feels amazing! To answer the question an earlier poster had, no you don't lose continence. At least I haven't, but it's not like I'm walking around with two chopsticks up my cock 24/7.

Is there a merit badge for wearing two chopsticks in your urethra 24/7? It must at least come in handy when suddenly having a craving for Chinese food.

by Anonymousreply 3208/01/2010

Sometimes the S&M community seems like a one-up-manship sport. Oh yeah? Well I can stick TWO STEEL RODS up my penis! And yes, it feels FANTASTIC, but you wouldn't know because you don't have the balls to do it. Whatever. I honestly think these people are mentally ill or need a good slapping.

I had a tube up my urethra for medical reasons recently (everything was fine, thanks for asking) and it did feel pretty intense, so I sort of get the appeal. However, the idea of trying it out in any other situation makes me shudder, because of eveything I could imagine going wrong.

by Anonymousreply 3608/01/2010

Sounding with sounds is one thing but cock stuffing and urethral enlargement is another. I can cram my little finger into my cock hole and jerk off at the same time with the other hand. Quite intense inside and out simultaneously..

This thread makes me dizzy and sweaty and not in a good way.

by Anonymousreply 3808/01/2010

Sounding is a way to have a very intense orgasm. It is not for the faint of heart but can be extremely pleasurable. I have been doing it for years and never had an infection or problem. Sounding with a partner is a way to experience the sub/dom relationship For sure it is not for everyone.

by Anonymousreply 3909/24/2013

What happens if the sound slips out of your hand, and goes all the way inside your dick? Other than an embarrassing ER visit.

by Anonymousreply 4009/24/2013

After coming out of surgery, the ER threatened me with this if I didn't pee on my own.

by Anonymousreply 4109/24/2013

[quote]Would you lose the ability to hold your pee at all?

Your urethra is not what controls the flow of your urine. That's one of the functions of the prostate. After prostatectomy, it's possible for men to retrain their muscles so that they will perform the same function. Well, for SOME men, given recent advances in prostatectomies.

And thanks, R35; the card was really sweet.

by Anonymousreply 4209/24/2013

Glad this got bumped. I was watching a porno and the guys did this. I had heard of it and it never appealed to me. In the movie, the guys seemed to really enjoy it and it did seem exceedingly intimate so I thought, " maybe there is something that I'm not getting". Until I get a true description of the intense feeling, I'll probably give it a pass.

As for watersports...

by Anonymousreply 4309/24/2013

You could probably combine the two, R43, but it might be a mistake.

Lol, r44! I could see and endless circle of me peeing into his dick, he peeing it back into mine, etc...

Tried it. Felt good in a newly, weird sort of way. Haven't had a chance to do it again. Not half as scary/dangerous as it looks. I'll give it an 8/10.
