The 4 Best Sounding Kits for Beginners to Help Discover Urethral Pleasure
How We Selected Each Sounding Kit for Beginners
It’s vital to make sure you choose high-quality, body-safe equipment when sounding. This is especially important if it’s your first time! If you were wondering why this list is relatively short (compared to many of our other lists), that’s why: not many kits could make the cut!
Fortunately, we were able to find four different options. Every sounding kit for beginners listed below met the high-quality and body-safe requirements, but we also took a few other factors into consideration.
We selected kits based on their relative ease of use, product design, value for money, and available customer feedback. Using these various factors, we’ve created the beginner-friendly list you’ll soon see below!
Is Sounding Safe?
This wouldn’t be a good article if—in addition to helping you find the best sounding kit for beginners—we didn’t also cover the pros and cons of sounding. Let’s start with the pros first!
- Provides unique stimulation to the urethra
- Offers a way to directly stimulate the prostate
- Longer & stronger orgasms (potentially)
- Sometimes enjoyed alongside CBT
- Increases the chance of getting an infection (UTI)
- Increases potential of damage to the urethra
- Possibility of urethral strictures (urethral scarring)
- Sound can be lost in urethra if not careful

The 4 Best sounding kit for beginners in Test
Ouch! Beginner's Silicone Urethral Plug Set
If you’re looking for the best sounding kit for beginners then you certainly can’t go wrong with this sounding set from Ouch!
The kit includes three different sounds, each with its own unique length, texture, and loop-ring (for easy removal once you’re finished).
Affordably priced, flexible, and made of high-quality silicone, this kit is the perfect option for the curious-but-cautious beginner!
Many sounding tools for beginners are made of silicone. Silicone is a flexible and relatively comfortable material, but this softness can make it challenging to insert. Fortunately, since the sounds included in this kit are relatively short, these specific sounds will be slightly easier to insert!
Beyond the beginner-friendly lengths, each sound comes equipped with a loop-ring, which makes it impossible to over-insert the sound (while also making removal a breeze!). The kit doesn’t come with a case, but you could always use the original packaging until you found a suitable storage option.
Overall, we highly recommend this sounding kit. It’s small enough to be non-intimidating, big enough to be highly stimulating, and safe enough for any sounding enthusiast to enjoy without worry!
Ouch! Beginner's Urethral Dilator Set
This is one of the cheapest sets you’ll find when it comes to urethral sounding for beginners. Despite that, Ouch! still manages to provide us with an excellent product!
This two-piece sounding set includes one smooth, tapered sound and one thin, ribbed sound.
Offering two textures and two thicknesses, this simple kit should keep sounding beginners occupied (and satisfied) for quite a while!
This kit includes two solid sounding tools for beginners. Of course, the downside is that it only contains two sounds. Still, considering the low price point, we’d definitely say that this is acceptable.
Although this sounding kit for beginners gives you two options, we think complete beginners should try the ribbed sound first. Being slightly thinner, it should be much easier to insert. Once you’re used to the process, then you can give the thicker sound a try.
Made of the same high-quality silicone as their other toys and offered at a great price, we definitely recommend this budget-friendly option to the sounding first-timers out there!
Ouch! Beginner Spiral Screw Sounding Set
This sounding kit for beginners is a bit different than the other sounding set options we’ve looked at so far. For one, these sounds all use a unique spiral design. Another difference? They’re all almost a foot long!
Of course, you needn’t actually insert them this far, but this kit will definitely give you enough length to insert your sound(s) without issue.
Featuring diameters ranging from .3cm to .6cm, this kit packs more than enough to give you a great start to your sounding journey!
f you’re trying to buy sounding tools for beginners that will have a lot of potential (even after you’ve gotten accustomed to sound), then this is definitely a kit we recommend. Not only is the length more than sufficient, but the variety of thicknesses is also a plus.
Understandably, this kit costs a bit more than the kits with only two or three sounds. However, considering the total cost is still less than $50, we think it’s a fair asking price.
If you’d like a completely beginner-friendly option, one of the less intimidating kits may be a better option. On the other hand, if you just know that sounding is something you’re sure to be into for a long time, this kit might just give you the best value for your money!
Rosebud Urethral Sounds Kit
Our last urethral sounding for beginners kit steps away from the silicone sounding set options we’ve been looking at: these sounds are made from stainless steel!
Packed away within this velvet-lined carrying case you’ll find eight different sounds, each with a different diameter. Ranging from 6mm to 13mm, this kit should keep you satisfied for a while.
Looking for a non-flexible (but still beginner-friendly) way to get into sounding? If so, then the Rosebud Urethral Sounds Kit is for you!
As the only sounding kit for beginners included in this list, the Rosebud Sounds Kit has big shoes to fill. Fortunately, we think it’s managed to pull it off. While these sounding tools for beginners do look a bit visually intimidating, they’re actually sized appropriately.
Since the kit contains a grand total of eight sounds, you’ll have plenty of sizing options to choose from, which means this kit should keep you engaged for a while. It’s much more pricey than the other options we’ve gone over so far. However, considering that these sounds are made of metal (and the fact that you’ll receive eight), we think the price is fair.
Overall, this is just a good kit. If you’re ready to begin your sounding journey but don’t want to mess around with silicone, just pick up the Rosebud Urethral Sounds Kit instead!

Penis sounding for beginners may be exciting, but it can also be very dangerous if done incorrectly. Here’s one item you can’t afford to not pick up!
Condom-safe, non-staining, and completely sterile, SurgiLube is our recommendation for sounding lube. Don’t risk a UTO; stay safe with SurgiLube!
Sounding Safety Guide
As mentioned above, penis sounding for beginners can be dangerous if done incorrectly. We’ve already established that you need to use a sterile lubricant when sounding, but what else should you consider? Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind:
- Always sterilize your sounds. Not sterilizing your sounds is practically asking for a UTI! It’s also good practice to make sure your hands are clean before handling your sounds.
- Play gently. Being too rough with your sounds can potentially damage your urethra, causing internal scarring.
- Don’t over-insert your sounds. Although some toys are made specifically to prevent this, not all sounds will prevent you from accidentally losing the toy inside of your urethra!
How to Use a Sounding Kit for Beginners
So, you’re about to take your first step into the world of penis sounding for beginners… but you’re not entirely sure how to take that step. No worries: here’s a guide overview of what you’ll need to do!
Prepare Your Supplies
You’ll need to select and sterilize the sound you plan on using. Don’t forget to grab your lubricant while you’re at it!
With clean hands & a sterilized sound, apply lubricant to both the tip of your penis and to the sound itself. Don’t be afraid to “go overboard”: more is generally better!
Insert the Sound
Taking things slowly, you can begin to insert the sound. Generally, this will work best if you’re partially—but not fully—erect. Never force the sound in farther than it wants to go, but feel free to adjust yourself a bit to help the process along. Once you have it inserted, you can move the sound around if desired to increase the enjoyable internal stimulation!
How to Clean a Sounding Kit for Beginners
Since all sounds are non-porous, the process of sterilizing them is actually quite easy! First, you’ll need to boil a pot of water. Once the water is boiling, drop your sound(s) into the boiling water and leave them in there for a minimum of five minutes. Once enough time has passed, remove your sound(s), pat them dry, and allow them to air dry before storing them away. Alternatively, if you’re about to use the sound, this is where you’ll apply lube!
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
