How to use a penis plug

Looking to dive into the world of urethral sounding? Well, you've come to the right place!

We totally get that using a penis plug might feel a tad intimidating, but fear not! Our how-to guide is here to help you understand how to use an urethral sound safely and comfortably.

A penis plug is designed to be inserted into the urethra, stimulating your penis internally. Plugs come in a wide range of lengths, usually ranging from 1.00 to 4.00 inches, with different textures and shapes for each model. The most common ones are smooth and slightly tapered, making them easy to insert. Some plugs have a glans ring for extra stability, while others are hollow to allow fluid flow.

So, let's get familiar with the delicate art of urethral sounding! Happy reading!

1. Inspect your plug

Before every sounding session, carefully check your plug for any imperfections. It should be smooth, without any signs of damage, roughness, or dents. If you notice any wear and tear, replace it with a new one for your safety and pleasure.

2. Sterilise your plug

To avoid any risk of infection, you should sterilise your plug every time that you use it.

Plunge the plug in boiling water for 10 minutes. Carefully remove it without burning yourself and let it cool on a clean cloth. Do not touch it again until it cools down completely to prevent recontamination.

3. Have a pee before you play

Empty your bladder before starting your play session to avoid any interruptions. Besides, the comfort of an empty bladder will enhance your enjoyment.

Please note

If you have a hollow plug that allows urine and/or semen to flow through, you can skip this step.

4. Practise basic hygiene

It's crucial to practise impeccable hygiene when using your penis plug. Clean your hands and penis thoroughly before each session to eliminate the risk of bacterial contamination.

5. Apply some lube to the plug


The urethra doesn't naturally lubricate itself, so you'll need to use lots of lube to make the plug easier and more comfortable to insert.

Opt for a silicone-based lubricant, as it will better reduce friction and provide longer-lasting lubrication than water-based formulas.

6. Insert your plug

To make the most of your experience, be cautious and patient. Your penis should not be erect.

  • Whether you're sitting or standing, make sure that you're comfortable.
  • Hold your penis by the base for stability and to make the urethral opening clearly visible.
  • With your lubed-up plug in the other hand, gently insert it into the urethra. Breathe deeply and take your time, without rushing.
  • If you experience any pain or resistance, stop immediately. Allow yourself the time to get used to the new sensations – your patience will be rewarded!
  • Continue inserting the plug without forcing or going beyond your body's limits.

LOVE Team Tip
If you’re a beginner, you should start with the smallest and thinnest plug possible. You’ll gradually get used to the sensations, so that you can upgrade to larger plugs later on.

7. Enjoy your plug

Those who have some experience in urethral sounding should feel free to wear a plug as long as you want. A hollow plug will allow you to pee without removing it.

However, if you’re a beginner, the LOVE Team recommends wearing your plug for short periods initially, up to one hour at most.

Moving around will help you experience different kinds of sensations. Remember, if you feel any pain or discomfort, remove the plug immediately.

8. Remove your plug

Wash your hands thoroughly.
Hold your flaccid penis at the base with one hand and slowly remove the plug with the other hand.
If your plug is not hollow, do not ejaculate while wearing it, as semen might flow back into the bladder. Always remove it before ejaculation.

9. Clean your plug

Thoroughly clean your plug to keep it in excellent condition for your next session.

Wash it with warm water and soap, paying attention to all the contours. Rinse it thoroughly. Sterilise it as described in step 2 and let it air dry.

10. Store your plug

Keep your plug protected from damage by keeping it in a box or fabric pouch. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

The LOVE Team hopes this guide will help you enjoy a safe and pleasurable session. And remember, we're always here to answer any questions you have about using a penis plug. Have fun!
