I have been asked by many individuals, both female and male about the use of "sounds" or "Urethral Play". Since I do not have a cock, I felt it best to go out and find some information about Sounds from somebody with actual "COCK IN" experience.
The following text was provided by Marty Schwartz. (The same gentleman who so lovingly writes (and shares) of his devotion to his Mistress in the story section
Our profound thanks to Marty for the time and care that he has taken in putting together the following information. Please keep in mind, that this is only one person's opinion, based on research and actual experience.
DISCLAIMER: This document is in no way meant to replace medical opinion, fact and/or advise. As in all things relating to BDSM use your GOOD judgment. Play SAFELY, SANELY and always CONSENSUALLY.

SOUNDS INFORMATION BY Marty Schwartz, Copyright 1997
Over the past several week I have learned a few things about play involving the placement of things in a cock, well actually I have selfishly volunteered my own cock and the testing ground. This outlines some of the things I have found out. Please know that I am not in any way a trained medical professional, I have not even taken a first aid class. I am not an expert, this information is just what I have found out.
Sounds are metal rods used in the medical community to dilate urethras, male and female. Several styles are used in BDSM play. I was getting conflicting information about what the style is called that are sold by Mr. S Leather in San Francisco, CA (415-863-7798) and LeatherMasters in San Jose, CA (408-293-7660), about $20.00 at each. The store staff did not know what they were called. I found a surgical supply firm that was willing to copy several pages from medical catalogues.
The type sold and Mr. S and LeatherMasters are called Hegar Uterine Dilators and are used on women. They are 7 1/2 long, have a gentle S curve to them, and are two sized - that is each Hegar has one half that is larger than the other half. They come in a selection of 8, 16 size combination, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 & 17-18. I started with a 5-6. It is about the size of a small diameter drinking straw, the next size I got was a 7-8, about the size of a large drinking straw. I am now working on the 9-10, the 9 is a nice fit - cant do 10 yet. The 17-18 is thumb sized and I cant even look at it.
Hegars can be inserted in an erect cock. I have had some experience with Van Burens also. They are 11 long with a flat handle on one end, and a 90 degree bend at the inserting end. They are for going all the way to the bladder and can not be inserted in an erect cock. They come in 17 sizes - 8,10,12,14........40. Some are tapered all the way up, some get to size soon and stay the same size the rest of the way. A 22 Van Buren is about the diameter of a 7 Hegar. The buzz using the Van Buren is going through the prostrate and up to the bladder. They are not to be played with without great caution! Stop if you see ANY blood!
Dittels are rather like Van Burens without the bend in the end. I have no experience with Dittels but they appear to be able to work with an erect cock.
Actually Hegars are called dilators and the sizes are marked as 3-4mm, 5-6mm. Van Burens and Dittels are called sounds and the sizes are marked as 8Fr, 10Fr (Fr refers to French). The leather stores call them sounds and dont know that they are Hegars.
Expect your first piss after play to sting, if fact after my first play I stung for a full day. Sorta look forward to it now.
If you see a little blood, STOP. If you are still seeing blood in a day or so go to the doctor. If you see allot of blood go to the doctor NOW and tell them exactly what you were doing.
Do not mix ass play with sounds play. Little things that are fine in your bumm play havoc in your cock. Be very careful about cross contamination. Use your own lube, dont use lube for sounds that might have been used for any other play, even your own.
Dont use your sounds on others. I had a Top take a condom, fill it with a bunch of lube, place the condom - lube inside - on my cock and then use a sound on me. I did not develop any problems later - I dont know if this is a good practice or not. It just worked for me.
The following are parts of responses I received after I requested information about the use of sounds on two list servers. Enjoy!!
<<they go up to a 32. You must start with the smaller ones and work up to the larger sizes. It will dilate your urethra somewhat for a short amount of time. You should return to normal. Just be aware that the longer you leave it in the bit longer it will take to return. They should be sterile, blunt with no rough or sharp edges whatsoever. Use lots of lube and clean the head of your penis with Betadine first to help insure that you do not obtain an infection>>
<< The individual inserting the sounds should wear sterile gloves but clean gloves will work also. Using lots of lube slowly...and I do mean slowly, insert the small sound...then slowly remove it and go to the next size again using lots of lube...should you feel a great deal of discomfort or pain stop immediately. Watch for blood in your urine and make sure you do not start to run a low grade fever or have pain or discomfort upon urination. If you do and it does not go away within 24-36 hours then high-tail it to your doc...... he will more than likely start you on a regimen of antibiotics... always keep the sounds sterile and do not use on anyone else please take it slowly. Urethral sounds are manufactured for the sole purpose of opening urethral strictures which can develop (for a variety of reasons from just plain old age to infection scar tissue, etc.) and come in carefully metered graduated sizes. Do not try and "jump" from the one you have to a considerably larger one. Not only can you do considerable damage if you try and force it in - you just plain will *not* enjoy it. Basically, from my knowledge and personal experience, that covers it. Just don't force things too quickly.
<< You didn't really say how deep you were getting with your sound, but if you are just stimulating and stretching the internal urethra and not getting past the prostate and into the bladder neck (which would cause the leakage/flow of urine with the small size sound you are using) then nothing really else. Just make sure it is well lubricated with sterile lubricant and properly *angle inferred) and comfortably inserted. While the medical purpose of the devices *is* to stretch the urethra as necessary to facilitate urinary flow, the procedure is done under at least a local *spinal) anesthesia, if not general anesthesia, and the doctor will go through *several* sizes of sounds in succession to achieve his goal. That is not what you need attempt to do in a play scene. (It wouldn't be *enjoyable*.) >>
<<That is a different measuring system (its name currently escapes me - sorry) than that used for catheters sold in the US. They are sized with the "French" gauge. Meaning you would ask for "16 French", "18 French", etc. To give you a reference point, a "22 French" catheter is roughly the same size as the average American cigarette in diameter. "16 French" is considerably smaller -possibly the diameter of a small to medium Phillips head screwdriver shaft. They come in even numbered sizes only, with most outlets readily carrying 16 through 24 or so. They are available (albeit often by special order unless you have access to a quite large supplier) well up into the 30's if not higher. (Personally, I should think that a 34 French would be comparable to the average person's pinkie finger in diameter, given the difference between a 16 and a 24.) Anyway, they are flexible, sterilely packaged, cheap (disposable), long (generally 16" or so in length since they are intended to get into the bladder for draining urine - where the sounds are not), and can be great fun, as well as an inexpensive way to try out different sizes to find the one most enjoyable to you without buying all of the sounds. Just be sure you know how to properly insert them particularly if you do go all the way into the bladder. Also, obviously, close to sterile precautions should apply, including making certain that hands and your dick are washed with at least antibacterial soap before opening the sterile package, and that you use a sterile lubricant. Needless to say, if you are expecting to go all of the way into the bladder, you also need to have something handy to catch the urine flow, or be somewhere where it either doesn't matter or is appreciated >>
<<But if you introduce something rigid like a sound there could be problems. Sounds, whether they are Van Burens, Dittels, or Guyons are all made of metal and are unforgiving. When you introduce a sound into the urethra, you are dealing with soft tissues and therefore the tissues move around to accommodate the sound.>>
<<If you feel you must insult your body this way I would recommend the use of a rubber or silicone catheter as both are flexible. To insert anything into the urethra it needs to be either sterile or super clean. The introduction of anything into the urethra has the potential of being very dangerous if there is contamination of the catheter, penis or urethra with feces or rectal drainage during insertion. The bacteria will cause severe infection of the bladder if it ends up there and can ultimately affect the kidneys.>>
<<I happen to have a large collection of sounds and I love to give them and get them, but I always use a modified sterile procedure. Since sounds are rigid and can be safely inserted by holding on to just the handle. I therefore use Betadine to cleanse the penis. I use sterile lubricant and a sterile sound. I autoclave my sounds in a giant pressure cooker in special cloth packs that immediately go into a 250 degree oven to dry. When they are cool I pack the packs in plastic bags for storage.>>
<<If you are going to do it, do it correctly. Remember, when inserting Van Buren or Dittel sounds they must be moved so the handle is almost touching your stomach to navigate the curves. Dittel sounds should not be inserted as far as the Van Buren or Guyons as they do not navigate the turns. When standing the urethra enters the bladder at the bottom end so there is a curve from the penis to the bladder. NEVER TRY TO INSERT OR REMOVE A CURVED SOUND WHEN THE COCK IS HARD. BE C A R E F U L AND GOOD LUCK. BEST OF ALL, BE INFORMED.>>
<< I have had a little experience with them and want more! In your post you mention several types Van Burens, Dittels, or Guyons My first experience was with a rod that is shaped rather like a drinking straw with a very slight soft curve. Half of it is one size, the other half is larger. The one I have is marked 5/6 is a little thinner than a drinking straw. I have seen this type sound as large as my thumb. Yesterday a friend who works for a hospital introduced me to a new type, new to me. I now have 6 sounds that look very different than the other sounds I am familiar with. The new ones I have are straight, except for each end. One end is flat and I would call it the handle. The other end has a short 90 degree hook. This unit gets larger as you go from the hook end toward the handle end. The handle has a number stamped on it. The one stamped 20 is about as big around as the 6 end of the drinking straw style one I have. The feel of those going through me was unbelievable and something I want to continue to explore. I have an interest in exploring the drinking straw style as well as the new ones I got yesterday.>>
