Is Urethral Stimulation Safe?
Types Of Urethral Toys
When someone first discovers urethral insertion, there will probably be a moment where they think “OH GOD WHY?”
Once the initial knee-jerk reaction has passed though, most of the time thoughts will trend towards the safety of the practice.
Surely putting long rods directly into important bodily pipework is going to have a negative effect on your health!
These concerns are completely valid and common amongst those new to the practise, but when done in a careful and controlled manner, urethral play can be just as safe as any other sexual practise!
What Is Urethral Insertion?
At its core, urethral insertion is incredibly simple. All you need to do is use one of the various urethral toys and insert it into your urethra.
This can be done for both recreational reasons and medical reasons.
While it’s simple in theory, when actually doing it things can get a little more complicated. The urethra is very delicate, and the process creates several unique risks that you need to be aware of.
Perforation Of The Urethra
One of the largest risks to your body when inserting objects into the urethra is perforation.
This is where the object goes too far and actually makes a hole in the lining of the urethra. Having this happen is a serious concern and can have lasting effects on your health.
Luckily, it’s a simple thing to avoid. When inserting most toys, there should be relatively little resistance and they should just slide into your body through the force of gravity.
To choose the right toys to avoid this, they need to be snug fit. Not too tight, and not too loose.
If you need to push the toy at all then you’ll probably need something thinner. If the toy slides in super easily without any resistance, then you’ll want one a little wider. Simple!
Infections Of The Urethra
Another very common worry when inserting things into your urethra is bacterial infections.
The urethral tube is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, and it’s very easy for it to absorb any bacteria left on your toys.
To avoid this, you need to make sure that your toys are always thoroughly cleaned and sterilised both before and after use.
Damaging The Urethral Tissue
Another side effect of having such sensitive tissue inside the urethra is that it’s very easy to damage.
You can do this in a number of different ways. For example, being too rough with your toys can cause parts of the urethra to get caught or cause abrasions.
If you find yourself struggling to insert your toys you shouldn’t push too hard, instead try gently turning the toy until it can easily travel further into your body.
Your toys themselves can give you some problems which may lead to damage inside your urethra.
If there were any imperfections in the surface of the toy during the manufacturing process, then your toy might have some rough areas or sharp edges.
These need to be filed down or removed before you start using your toy or you may damage your urethra.
Lubrication And Urethral Play
Lubrication is probably the single most important thing you always need to do when engaging in urethral stimulation.
Inserting anything into the urethra without lubrication is certain to be a painful and damaging experience.
It’s easy to avoid though, and simply making sure that everything is properly lubricated before you begin will help you enjoy yourself with no problems.
At the end of the day, urethral insertion is just about as safe as any other kind of sexual stimulation. The important thing is how you go about it.
As long as you take your time and know what you’re doing, then you should be able to use any kind of urethral toy while avoiding all the risks and dangers that are present!
