Steps To Use A Penis Plug Safely

Spend some money on a good Penis Plug that will make you feel comfortable to use.Owning a quality, body safe Penis Plug is for hygienic and safety purposes. You must also purchase a sterile surgical lubricant (See step 5 for lubricant recommendations).

2. Check For Human Error

Most Penis Plugs are hand-made and sometimes, however rarely, there is human error which can cause serious damage. You will need to examine your Penis Plug for human error. When you have a look at your Penis Plug ensure that it is completely smooth.  Feel along the Penis Plug to carefully make sure it does not have any unusual bumps, lumps or shards. If you find the Penis Plug has a manufacturing fault, do not use it.

If your urethral sex toys are stamped in sizing make sure that it has been completely smoothed out if not a bit of emery paper can do the job.

Failing to carry out this necessary step may be the difference between a fantastic sexual experience and a visit to the emergency room at the hospital. Repeat this step prior to each use of your Penis Plug.

3. Ensure You Have A Hygienic Environment, A Sterilised Urethral Sex Toy And Body

The Penis Plug must be cleaned before and after use. Make sure it is sterile as you do not want to get a urinary tract infection or a bladder infection.

· Warm Soapy Water and Anti-Bacterial Spray

Wash your plug in warm soapy water or if you have the time. Rub the Penis Plug with pure alcohol to get rid of any bacteria that may still remain. If you don’t have pure alcohol then use a high quality antibacterial sex toy cleaner. When you are cleaning you should ensure your hands are germ free or you should wear medical gloves.

· Sterilise in Boiling Water

If the Penis Plug is made from body safe surgical steel, you will be able to sterilise it in boiling water for 30 minutes or more. What the Penis Plug comes in contact with, whether it’s your hands or a piece of cloth, it will expose it to bacteria of that item. Ensure you are handling the urethral sex toy hygienically. Allow the Penis Plug to cool down to a body safe temperature before use. The pot or glass skillet which you use should have no scratches on it to guarantee your urethral sex toy will not be damaged during the cleaning process.

· Clean Your Hands and/or Wear Medical Gloves

You will also need to have clean hands before urethral play. You can cut your nails, make sure they are smooth and be sure to clean under your nails and between your fingers.  If you would like, you can use medical gloves to ensure your experience will be 100% hygienic.

· Clean the Genital Area

The wearer needs to clean their penis or vulva before urethral play, before play it is recommended to have a shower. You can wipe iodine or a surgical scrub on the area to create a layer where no bacteria can live.

· Clean Surfaces

Use an area that has been cleaned and dried. You can go to your local pharmacy to purchase a sterile cloth to put clean instruments on.

  • Bacterial Wipes: Have bacterial wipes nearby in case you need to clean up during urethral play.
  • Don’t Share Your Sex Toy:  Urethra sex toys should not be shared.

4. Urinate

When using Penis Plugs or urethral sex toys micro tears may occur which can lead to an infection or pain. For women it is recommended to urinate before and after urethral play to flush out unwanted harmful bacteria from the urethra. Men can also find it difficult to orgasm if they have a full bladder and should urinate before and after urethral play to. If you don’t urinate, you may feel like peeing during urethral play.

5. Lubricate

Presently there is a risk of triggering irritation and small tears to the urethra when using urethra sex toys even if done 100% correctly. The discomfort and sores could occur and make the urethra extremely susceptible to colonisation by foreign bacteria that may have recently been introduced with the insertion of a urethra sex toy. Introduction of foreign bacteria in to the urethra can contaminate, cause discomfort and pain. This will happen in women especially because of their short length of their urethra it is very easy for the micro-organisms to cause bladder infection or urinary problems. Never flush any fluids or add anything to the bladder.

In professional medical facilities infections can occur within the urethra and bladder, these appear to be a normal occurrence. If you experience symptoms of an infection, it is recommend to see a medical professional like a doctor straight away who may prescribe you antibiotics if needed.

Men have a lengthier sized urethra this means their bladder is positioned further away from the stimulation point. It is considerably more difficult for the bladder. Men are at less of a risk to gain an infection compared to women who have a shorter urethra. It is recommended to only use Body Safe Lubricants when using urethral sex toys.

 

Why Lubricate?

Despite the fact that our body can naturally create lubricant the urethra does not have enough lubricant to allow for insertion of any sex toy. And if you are using lubricant for any type of penetrative sex it will allow the sexual experience to happen with ease. Usually women use lubricant for masturbation or for sexual intercourse. Men also need lubricants if they are using a masturbation sleeve or mens masturbator.

When the lubrication runs low it will cause friction which can lead to injuries. Lubrication will help to provide a layer between your urethra and the sex toy, so the friction does not build up and cause issues. The urethra, like the anus, will absorb water so you will need to apply a generous amount of lubricant and reapply when necessary. Apply a generous amount of body safe lubricant before insertion.

 

Unsafe Lubricants

Oil Based Lubricant

It is recommended to stay away from lubricant that is oil based lubricants. Oil based lubricants are hard to clean out of the urethra which can cause obstruction and infection.

Glycerine Lubricant

Glycerine contains additional sugar, since it is a food source it may cause infection. Do not use saliva as it will excessively dry up, harbour bacteria and cause pain. Only water based lubricants or silicone based lubricants are recommended.

Numbing Lubricant

Do not use numbing lubricants, sprays or products. These types of sexual health products will make it extremely difficult for you to tell what is really going inside your urethra. The whole point to using a urethral sex toy is to feel the pleasurable sensations. If you use any product that dampens feelings you will not be able to feel the pleasurable or painful sensations. Product’s which numb feelings will not give you the control of knowing your pain and tolerance levels. You may not be able to tell when a Penis Plug or urethral sex toy will cause harm to your body. When you participate in urethral play, you must be able to stop when there is pain.

 

Safe Lubricants

  • Water Based Lubricant
  • Silicone Lubricant: Most silicone based lubricants have a tendency to become sticky quickly. Some silicone lubricants do not have this problem and are completely safe to use with Penis Plugs.

 

Recommended Lubrication Brands

Sexual health products have some leading lubricant brands in their industry. Just like Samsung and Sony there are some leading brands of manufacturers within the TV industry. There are several options available in the market which can make it overwhelming and unclear to really know what is good. It is merely talked up as most lubricants are bought straight away from a convenient store without a second thought. But picking the right lubricant for the right job will improve your sex life for both you and/or your lover. Depending on the personal lubricant you choose can make or break a sexual experience. Penis Plugs recommended brands include Surgilube and SuperSlyde.

 

Surgilube

6. Relax

There are many ways to relax. You can select a few ways and see how you go:

Draw a steaming shower or bath: Put your lights on low, light candles around the tub, use fragrance bath bubbles. The warm of the water will calm your body and your mind will naturally relax.

Lie on Your Bed or Couch among Comfortable pillows: There are days when all we truly need is a decent, long snooze to relax.

Listen to meditative music : Play some delicate music or nature CDs. Unwind tuning in to sea waves, waterfalls or feathered creatures.

Read a Decent Book: Twist up on the sofa with a cover and some chamomile tea. Take some personal time to unwind in an activity that keeps your energy low.

Imagine your ideal place or travel destination: Close your eyes and imagine an alternate setting. What do you see around you? Is there a breeze? What do you hear? Can you hear water? Envision the quieting sound of sea waves slowly coming to the shore. Appreciate a minute in your uncommon place.

Put Aside Time to Unwind: You have to set aside a time frame to unwind in and take the time you need. Whether you unwind in 5 minutes, half an hour or an hour. 

Keep in Mind to Breathe: Is there any more straightforward approach to unwind? Moderate, full breaths can help bring down pulse and heart rate. You can attempt pranayama breathing, a yoga technique that includes breathing through one nostril at an opportunity to soothe tension.

Close Your Eyes: You can close your eyes, its okay. Enjoy a snappy reprieve from your bustling lifestyle.

Be Alone: It may be a lot of fun to sexually experiment with a lover or your partner but sometimes it is best to pay full attention to yourself. Not everybody needs a lodge or forested areas to relax. Give yourself alone time so you can regain your thoughts and clear your mind.

Make a Zen Zone: Covering up in a restroom slow down won't not sound quieting, but rather do make (or discover) a space that is totally free of stress where you can go to unwind. Set up an agreeable seat or light some incense and vanish there for a couple of minutes until the strain scatters.

Get Organized: A heap of papers, three tape containers, a pack of deformed paperclips: All this messiness could add to push. Take a couple of minutes to revamp your work area (or table, or wherever you are), leaving exactly what you require on top.

Tune in to Your Favorite Song: Why not listen to some Ed Sheeran or your favourite singer for some of the time belting out the verses to a most loved tune makes everything appear to be okay. In case you're in an open place (that isn't the musical show), simply tuning in to music can be a brisk settle for an awful state of mind. Established music can be particularly unwinding just before sleep time.

Attempt Aromatherapy: All that's needed is a moment to dribble some lavender, tea tree, or another fundamental oil into your palm and breathe in. The alleviating aromas may help ask stress and uneasiness to leave for good by empowering smell receptors in the nose that associate with the piece of the mind that directs feelings.

7. Penis Plug Insertion

Do not utilise Penis Plugs whilst taking medication that makes you sleepy or numb sensations within the body.

For easy insertion, ensure you insert the Penis Plug when you are soft and not erect. Always go slowly. Be gentle. Place the insertion end of the Penis Plug on the tip of your penis opening. Insert it into the eye of your penis, sometimes it will naturally fall in with the assistance of gravity.  In order to ensure the Penis Plug is in place. Hold the Penis Plug with one hand. You will need to hold onto your penis until it is fully erect.

DO NOT FORCE a Penis Plug into your urethra. If you encounter resistance stop until your urethra relaxes and then slowly insert it some more. Especially if you are a beginner or novice take it slow and you will learn what works for you. If you tighten up because you think it will hurt, you will never get it inserted. Sometimes there may be an obstruction or scar tissue within the urethra which may cause pain. If you come across extreme tightness you should immediately stop urethral play.

Do not rip out a Penis Plug. If you pull out urethral sex toy to quickly with little lubrication you will likely get a micro tear within your urethra. If you find that your urethra is gripping onto the penis plug, you should what until your penis becomes soft again.  This is one of the reason why you should always lubricate generously.

You will need to pay attention to warning signs during insertion and during masturbation. You will need to keep an eye out for these signs in case you have punctured the urethral wall or have gotten an infection.If you see any of the following signs you must stop immediately and talk to a medical health professional like a doctor. The signs include bleeding, excessive pain, a fever or irregular discharge.

8. Penis Plug Pleasure

Once the Penis Plug is in, you may feel slight pain. Hopefully you will begin to feel arousing sensations.  The sensations you experience at first may feel abnormal, take your time to get used of these new sensations. You will feel the pleasure everywhere in your genitals. After a while you will find the opening of the urethra will grow in size. Your penis will start to become erect and you may feel like masturbating.  This will only occur if you are relaxed. 

Masturbation and urethral play are both skills that take time to perfect. With the more time you invest in masturbating with a Penis Plug it will help to enhance your skill set. You will be able to learn what works for your body. With time your urethra will learn to get used of the feeling of a Penis Plug. It is up to you now whether you masturbate externally with the penis plug in, perform In and Out Sounding or perform gentle tapping.

 

Penis Plug Masturbation Methods

  • Masturbation: You are able to masturbate externally whilst the Penis Plug is inside.
  • In and Out Sounding: In and Out Sounding is also called “fucking the urethra”. It can be performed by gently moving a textured Penis Plug or Urethral Sound in and out of the urethra. The texture will stimulate the nerve endings within the urethra and should enhance pleasure. You should not use any type of force during this type of urethral play. When performing In and Out Sounding you must never take the complete Penis Plug or Sound out. Like all types of urethral play you must use generous amounts of lubricant and reapply lubricant as necessary. Do not use a sex toy that cannot be removed during sex or can be painful when moved.
  • Gentle Tapping: Gentle Tapping of a handle or shoulder can cause sexual arousal and give a lot of stimulation.

The more experienced you become with urethral sex toys, the more you will enjoy and experiment with penis plugs.  For example, you may wish to try Vibrating Penis Plugs to achieve climax through the head of your penis.

 

Will the Penis Plug Make Me Ejaculate the First Time?

First time users often do not experience the full enjoyment possible with a penis plug as the urethra will tighten up around the Penis Plug as it is a new sensation. Since it is a new experience the chances of encountering climax the first run through are low. However everyone’s body works differently. You may choose to ejaculate or you may choose to gently remove it so you can slowly get used of the feeling and try again later. If you have a solid penis plug you must remove it before ejaculation.

 

What If Your Penis Plug Slips Out?

Sometimes if you buy a short and smooth textured Penis Plug you may find that it may Penis Plug  attempt to slip out once you have used it a couple of times as the urethra has stretched. If this is the case, you can invest in a Glans Ring Penis Plug which will hold onto the erect structure of a penis and keep the Penis Plug in place. It is very important to use lubricant especially if you are a beginner but if you experience too much slippage you may need to readjust the lubricant amount by a little less. Or you can try a textured penis plug that is ribbed or has small ridges.

 

How Do You Participate in Couples Play

It is recommended that more experienced users allow their lover or partner to control the sex toy only if they 100% trust the person. Your partner must always do their best to take care of you, your body and follow your instructions. Never let someone you barely know or don’t trust use a urethral sex toy on you.

The person who is controlling the Penis Plug must pay attention to the wearer’s communication and reactions specifically if they are in pain or are uncomfortable. A person can gain great sexual satisfaction from giving up control of a sex toy to someone who cares for them. The wearer will need to openly communicate with their partner so they can understand the position of the Penis Plug should be in so you can feel comfortable.

9. After Urethral Play

When you are done, it's essential to urinate to get out any excess bacteria trapped in the urethra. You should also take the time to wash your genitals to remove any excess bacteria that is near the entrance.

Subsequent to when urethral play ends, you may feel a smouldering, light, tingling and painful sensation when you urinate which can leave you feeling sore. This happens because you have bothered the urethra. These uncomfortable sensations can last for a few fours to a couple of days.

It may mean that you were to enthusiastic or vigorous during urethral play. To help ease the discomfort, you should drink water and fluids. You will need to wait until the burning stops to try urethral sounding again. Next time you should go slower and use more lubricant.

10. Penis Plug Storage

It is recommended to store your Penis Plugs all in the once place, that way you can find them easily. This is so, that when you are in the mood, you can easily find them without much effort.

You can place them inside a dry box that is coated inside with felt to ensure that they sit comfortably. You can separate the urethral sex toys with pieces of satin or cloth so they don’t rub up against each other causing unnecessary scratches that can harm your body. It is important to keep your sex toys so that you can keep them for long term usage.

If you would love to keep a collection, you can store them inside a bedside drawer separating them into sub categories. For example in one drawer you can keep your cum through penis plugs, in another you can keep your solid penis plugs and in the very bottom drawer you can keep your urethral sounds.

 

Are You Ready to Move onto Urethral Sounds?

Urethral Sounds are much bigger than Penis Plugs and other urethral sex toys. Urethral Sounding is a powerful type of urethral play and should only be attempted by experienced Penis Plug users and wearers. Its aim is to stimulate the bladder or prostate through the urethra. Before you try deep urethral sounding you need to ensure your urethra is properly stretched so you are able to perform urethral sex toy insertion and removal without any problems. That is why it is only recommended for experienced user. 

If you are an experience Penis Plug user who is thinking about Urethral Sounding and would like to begin getting comfortable with the experience you may want to begin using a Long Penis Plug before moving onto Urethral Sounds.

A beginners Urethral Sound would be straight or slightly curved in design. Although experienced wearers can insert their sex toy in a matter of second, beginners must insert the Urethral sound gradually, inch by inch. Be patient and stop at whatever point you experience discomfort or distress. The objective is to make the experience as smooth as could be allowed.

Those who are attempting to use a Urethral Sound, please note during insertion it will naturally stop. When it stops, do not try to insert it further instead allow your body to relax around the Urethral Sound, your body may naturally suck in the Urethral Sound. Once you have inserted the Urethral Sound more than 4 inches, the urethra for the most part turn and pull whatever is left of the sex toy down into the urethra.

If you are going deeper you may have to change the angle of the Urethral Sound according to the shape of your urethra. It will take some time getting used to the angel you will need the sex toy to be on.

Once the sound is inserted, it will require you to hold it and your shaft for stability. Sounds are heavier then Penis Plugs due to their width and height. If your Sound falls overs whilst it is inside you, it can cause personal harm to your body. Urethral sounding is shockingly simple once you get used to it.
