Cassie Mørch
by Cassie MørchUpdated:

Even though I’ve spent years learning about toys for sounding and urethral play, I haven’t tried it myself. Therefore, I’ve consulted our Bedbible Tester Team to figure out which urethral toys are the very best to try out. In the review below, I’ve listed all the prominent pros and cons for each item and included a few snippets from our testers’ in-depth product reviews. Let’s have a look!

Benefits and Dangers of Urethral Sounding 

Before we begin, it’s important to go over the key talking points of urethral sounding. While I’ll go into greater detail towards the end of the article, here are the benefits and dangers you should be aware of when considering sounding and inserts for your penis.

The Benefits

  • New sensations that you’ve never felt from external stimulation
  • Stronger orgasms than you’ve ever had before (potentially)
  • Direct prostate stimulation offers a more intense experience than external stimulation

The Dangers

Urethral sounding does come with some serious risks, so it’s important to educate yourself before deciding if this is for you.

  • Infections (UTIs) are a real danger if the appropriate precautions aren’t taken.
  • Pain is possible if you don’t use enough lube, use too large of a penis inserts toy, or don’t listen to your body.
  • Internal injury can arise in the form of micro-tears or perforation.

You should avoiding sounding if you have health concerns affecting your penis, prostate or urinary system, including active STIs or recurrent UTIs.

With that out of the way, let’s start looking at these top-rated urethral toys!

A Closer Look
  • Set of 4 urethral inserts in different sizes
  • Made of medical grade stainless steel
  • Available in both silver or gold finish and both ridged and smooth
  • Diameters: 8, 9, 10, 11 mm.

Pros

  • Ridges help keep them in place
  • Medical-grade stainless steel feels sturdy and weighted
  • Different sizes to choose from
  • Easy to use and keep clean

Cons

  • Not for beginners
  • Packaging doesn't add the feeling of quality

Why I Chose It

I picked the Oxy SpectrumProbe Set as the Test Winner today because it is a top quality product in the world of urethral toys. It offers some variation in sensation and caters to a diverse level of experience so you can continue challenging yourself on your sounding journey. These medical grade stainless steel probes offer a nice intense, sturdy, and weighted feeling, which adds to the sense of quality.

When our tester, Peter, first received the package and had a look at these urethral toys, he shared that he “was a little nervous about the size!”. Even though the kit features a few different sizes and shapes, these aren’t exactly for beginners.

Although, he was quickly convinced of the pleasure they provided. Given that “the insertion of them the sensation is quite intense”, the control aspect of having a partner insert them is amazing.

The can also “be worn all day and night due to (them) being hollow allowing the person to use the bathroom”, which Peter said felt incredibly erotic and had him on edge all day. Even though there is a learning curve to using them and some patience involved, I appreciate that the length makes the probes easy to remove for regular cleaning and maintenance (especially during long-term wear).

A Closer Look
  • Kit of 12 urethral inserts in different materials, shapes, and sizes
  • Made of silicone and medical-grade stainless steel
  • Contains 7 steel Rosebuds sounds (between 6-12 mm), a slim hollow penis plug, a solid penis plug, a sperm stopper, a 7.3 mm silicone dilator catheter, and a 7.5 mm silicone dilator.

Pros

  • A wide range of urethral toys to explore
  • Made of high quality materials
  • Great for urethral stretching and training
  • Storage case for the rosebud sounds

Cons

  • Minor quality issues
  • Rosebuds are very blunt
  • SpermStopper doesn't always work

Why I Chose It

 

The Oxy Urethral Masturbation Maxi Bundle is also a winner in my book. This kit really has a lot of variety and versatility to offer. As our tester, Aaron, noted in his review, “I think it’s likely that any sounding enthusiast will find at least one thing they really need, and a few things they really like”.

As far as the cons go, there are only a few minor issues holding the Maxi Bundle from getting a perfect design score. While it may work for other, Aaron concluded that “the sperm stopper just doesn’t do what it was designed to do”. Secondly, “the rosebuds are actually very blunt. The ends of them are flattened, like a teardrop”. This does make them a bit harder to insert.

Overall, he was pleased with how easy (and pleasurable) all the items were to use. Most of the urethral toys have large rings on them and the rosebuds have thick hexagonal handles, so “grip will likely not be an issue for any of the sounds”.

The overall quality was good with a few small exceptions to do with the mechanics of the steel probes and some excess material on the silicone ones. Aaron describes this in further detail in his review.

“I think every toy performed up to their potential with the frankly weird exception of the sperm-stopper. The rosebudes are great for training, the silicones are the most fun, and the penis plug is the easiest while still giving a lot of stimulation”.

A Closer Look
  • Set of 3 blue silicone urethral toys
  • Each rod is 8.25 inches long
  • Diameters: smallest rod is 5mm/6 mm, middle rod is 7mm/8mm, largest rod is 9mm/10mm.

Pros

  • Long insertable length provides deep stimulation
  • Flexible silicone works well for curved penises
  • Great range in size to please different tastes
  • Easy to clean and sterilize

Cons

  • May not be comfortable to use for extended periods of time
  • No stopper to prevent them from going too deep

Why I Chose It

The Master Series Invasion Sound Set is my top recommendation for a relatively budget-friendly set of urethral toys that are both good quality and great for different levels of experience. The sizes range from 5 mm to 10 mm in diameter so it’s an ideal beginner’s toy that’ll grow with you on your sounding journey.

Our tester, Jeffrey, also really appreciated the size variations since the rods offered a gentle stretch between each size. Another great design features is that “each one also increases in diameter around the halfway mark, which is great for warming up and keeps things exciting as you move the sound deeper”.

“I am personally a fan of steel sounds and have quite a collection so, when I saw there was a silicone option by a brand I respect, I needed to try it out. I was not disappointed”. Jeremy found that the silicone urethral toys added a great level of flexibility which isn’t available with steel rods, making it easier to use on a penis with a slight curve.

One small thing to note is that silicone sounds will create a bit more friction than steel sounds. Therefore, some may find that their sessions have to be cut shorter compared to when they’re using completely smooth and slippery inserts.

  • Hollow design adds to the ease of use
  • Great kit for urethral training
  • The large rings work as stoppers and offer good grip

Cons

  • Limited variety
  • Not much for advanced users

Why I Chose It

The Ouch! Urethral Plug Set stands out to me as the most beginner-friendly set of urethral toys that we’ve tested here. All three of the inserts have a diameter between 4 mm and 4.5 mm which is relatively small and manageable.

Our tester, Aaron, found that “these are some of the easiest sounds to use”. The short one is great for those who struggle with depth, and the middle one is perfect for those who can already handle some girth. The soft silicone is also nice and flexible which does make the experience a bit more forgiving than with an unyielding steel sound.

For Aaron, his favorite was the largest option in the set. “The beaded texture feels very pronounced, giving it spots of intensity at regular intervals that feel particularly great as the sound moves in and out”. Even though it isn’t as beginner-friendly as the other two options, he did note that it doesn’t require a ton of experience to enjoy.

Even though Aaron thought it was a good product, he did especially note that he found it a bit overpriced compared to other options on the market right now.

A Closer Look
  • E-stim penis plug set that contains a power/control box, a conductive rubber cock strap, and an stainless steel sounding rod
  • The urethral insert is 4.5 inches long and has 6.85 mm in diameter.
  • Power box is battery-operated (2x AAA)
  • Rubber cock strap is adjustable with a toggle.

Pros

  • Great size for different levels of experience
  • The beaded texture adds some nice variety in sensation
  • Adjustable conductive loop
  • Can be used with other power boxes/e-stim toys

Cons

  • Controls are not very responsive
  • Low power level

Why I Chose It

Now, I wanted to include one last urethral toy for those who are curious about combining sounding with e-stim. With this kit, you get to enjoy both internal and external zaps!

Our tester, George, really enjoyed the stainless steel rod. He found that “with the bobbly texture, it felt really nice going in”. It has a satisfying yet sensible length and diameter. He conductive strap is easy to adjust because of the toggle. George did note that it’s important to add plenty of conductive gel when using this strap!

His first experience with the Oxy E-Stick was, unfortunately, quite disappointing and left him feeling quite unsatisfied because of weak electro stimulation. “This isn’t a criticism of just this product, electro stimulation toys that rely upon battery power tend to be rather lacking in the zap department.” On the bright side, e-stim newbies might find this to be a great introduction for some mild stimulation.

Luckily, the rod itself can also be used in combination with other control boxes and even by itself. It was when George paired the Oxy E-Stick with his mains-powered control box that magic happened:

“Eventually, all this stimulation led to a mind shattering climax, leaving me feeling like I’d just been on the best thrill ride of my life! So, my advice, buy the set for the insertable rod and use it with a better electro stimulation system.”

Safe Sounding Tips

We’ll be going over the specifics of how to use urethral toys in a moment, but first, we just wanted to give you three “Safe Sounding Tips” to keep in mind. Whether you’re a first-timer or an experienced enthusiast, it pays to follow these three tips!

  • Stick to sterile materials. Fortunately, most sounds and penis inserts will be made from stainless steel or silicone. These are both non-porous materials that can be sterilized. However, should you encounter a sounding toy made from any other material, check to ensure that it can be properly sterilized before attempting to use it.
  • Clean before and after. Bacteria can grow seemingly instantly. As such, you’ll want to clean your sounding toys (and your body) before and after any sounding sessions to minimize your risk of unnecessary infections.
  • Use the right size. Trying to use a size that’s too big will be uncomfortable at best, and absolutely painful at worst. With continued use, you’ll eventually be able to work up to a larger toy. However, there’s no need to risk damaging your body simply because you’re impatient. Progress takes time: don’t rush it!

What to Look for in a Urethral Toy

Getting into urethral play can be extremely exciting, but given the risk involved, you want to make sure you’ve got the right tools for the job! Here’s some things to consider when looking for the right urethral toys for you.

You should be looking for are silicone sounds and stainless steel sounds, preferably surgical-grade. Both of these materials can be sterilized which is a crucial step in urethral play.

The smoothness and rigidity of stainless steel makes it easier to insert, while the flexibility of silicone can be more comfortable to wear.

As you can imagine, every millimeter counts when it comes to urethral sex toys! You should start out with a slim sound that is roughly the same diameter as your urethra, which, according to Britannica, is usually between 5-8mm when open, but this will vary from person to person. This is why it’s a great idea to buy a sounding kit for beginners.

You should also start with shorter toys that don’t penetrate too far into the urethra.

If and when you want to size up, you should do so very gradually.

If you are a beginner, you should start with a smooth urethral toy. When you are more experienced, you can move on to textured sounds and penis plugs if you want more intense sensations.

If you are new to urethral toys, stick to a straight urethral insertion toy that stays the same width the whole way down.

More experienced users might want to explore curved sounds or rosebud sounds, which have a bulbed tip, offering more intense sensation.

Different Types of Urethral Toys

Urethral toys is an umbrella term for all toys that are inserted into the urethra but there are a few different kinds. Here are the main ones:

Urethral sounds

Silicone sounds tend to be longer than penis plugs and come in a range of sizes and shapes or in sets.

As well as standard sounds, you can find rosebud sounds, which are bulbed at the tip, curved sounds, and longer sounds designed to reach the prostate. There are also beaded sounds that are more stimulating.

Penis plugs

Penis plugs tend to be shorter than sounds and only enter the tip of the urethra. They often have a loop handle to prevent the plug from being fully inserted and are more beginner friendly.

Sperm stoppers are a type of penis plug but they feature a ball on the end, which can feel particularly intense to insert. They often have a glans ring as well.
