Straight to the Point penis plug stretcher

This week I’m going to be delving back into the world of urethral sounding thanks to Uberkinky and a new one of their penis plugs they’ve sent to me. It’s been a little while since I’ve tried a toy of this type, but when I saw the Straight to the Point penis plug stretcher I was quite intrigued by the general design of it and I thought it would be fun to try out.
Head below to catch the review!

The “Straight to the Point” plug – also known whimsically on the packaging as the “Tapered Elephant Dart” – is a little unusual in the world of urethral sounding in that it’s not a uniform thickness throughout its length. In fact it’s more akin to the Oxballs sounds that I reviewed a few years ago in terms of its general design. As the name might suggest it’s designed to be used as a urethral stretcher, starting small at one end and gradually tapering up to a 10mm diameter at the other, allowing the user to slowly expand the size of their urinary meatus. At 4 1/2″ in insertable length it’s more sound than it is plug, but with its functionality it serves as something of a mid-point between the two toy distinctions.
The sound is made from a single piece of stainless steel and polished to a high sheen. As one would hope from a toy of this type it’s manufactured to a very high standard, and the surface of the piece is completely smooth and free from any lumps, bumps, scratches, or indeed anything else that might risk irritating the urethra.
Left: angular tip. Right: fully rounded tip
The shape of the sound reminds me of a longer thinner version of the Metal Worx Teazer butt plug, with its rounded tip, tapered body, and then the way it narrows in again at the top before finishing with a spherical adornment on the end. One thing I did notice when I first examined it was that the tip isn’t quite as round as it actually seems at first, and there’s a slight angle where the rounded part of the tip meets the straight edges of the shaft. I’ve illustrated this to make the point more easily. This is something that I’d consider less than ideal because wherever you have a pointed part of an object it’s going to create greater pressure on whatever it’s pressing against. 
In use the sound is generally quite a pleasant experience. The narrow tip passes easily into the urethral opening and down through the spongy head until it meets the firmer shaft. Beyond this point I did find the need to progress fairly slowly with the sound however, due to the aforementioned incomplete roundness of the tip. The angular parts of the tip caused some slight discomfort as they scraped along the interior of the urethra, and this did mar the experience somewhat. Back up at the tip of the penis and the steadily widening shaft of the sound was passing quite easily inside, and eventually the whole thing disappeared down there. Personally I didn’t feel that there was much of a stretch happening, despite this being thickest metal sound I have, and nor would I consider my urethral opening to be anything other than average in size, but obviously individual experiences will vary. One thing I really liked about the sound though is that once it’s fully inserted it actually stays in place. The thick part of the shaft helps to anchor it within the head while the thinner neck and ball-tip protrude, preventing it from automatically emerging again as soon as you let go, which is my experience with all other sounds.
To draw a comparison with the Oxballs sounds which I mentioned earlier, I actually prefer this one. The Oxballs have the advantage of the soft, flexible, rounded tips, but despite this one being so rigid it’s the shiny metal surface which helps the toy to glide in more easily. The stepped one of the Oxballs sounds is 12mm at its widest point, but I never managed to insert it that far, because instead of acting as a useful stretching tool it would merely get stuck at the urethral opening and tug at it.
On the whole I do like the Straight to the Point penis plug stretcher, but the thing that makes me hesitant to recommend it outright is the issue with the tip. It’s a really niggly little flaw that detracts from the product, and you have to bear it in mind. You can still potentially get a lot of use and enjoyment out of the product, you just have to be prepared to insert it slowly and contend with a little discomfort.
Thanks to UberKinky for sending the product to me, and you can buy it from them right now.

Oxballs Nuttsling

The fabulous folks over at UberKinky got in touch recently and asked if I’d be interested in doing a review of one of their ball stretchers for them. Ball stretching isn’t really an activity I’d given much thought to before, but when I saw that the product in question was from Oxballs I immediately felt good about giving it a shot.

The Nuttsling is a very close cousin of the Oxballs Cocksling which I’ve reviewed previously. Much like the Cocksling it is in essence a form of cock ring, only this time with the additional feature of of being a ball stretcher as well. As I’ve mentioned before I like to think of these products as like a little piece of armour for the penis and testicles, as that’s what they remind me of that when I see them being worn, and the Nuttsling is no different here.
The Nuttsling comes in the same minimal packaging that I mentioned in my reviews of the Cocksling, the Sparkplug, and the Oxballs Urethral Sounds. The product is heat-sealed inside a small, clear, polythene bag with a sticker of the Oxballs logo on the outside, but which otherwise bears no branding, nor information denoting what the product is. There’s also noticeably an absence of any pamphlet explaining instructions for use or how to care for the product. If you’re environmentally conscious and a fan of minimal packaging then you might appreciate this, but I would have preferred a little something extra.
Unlike most Oxballs products which are made of silicone, the Nuttsling and others in that line are instead made of thermoplastic rubber (TPR), so you have to figure they have a good reason for using it. This reason becomes apparent when you realise just how stretchy this material is, much more so than any silicone that I’ve encountered. TPR is a safe material, though less highly regarded than silicone because it is slightly porous, but considering this isn’t an insertable toy I wouldn’t worry too much about that. The only real downside to the material is that it does have an odour, something that reminds me of an obscure alcoholic drink with just a hint of a chemical undertone. You’re probably not going to spend a lot of time sniffing it considering where it’s worn, and thankfully the smell dissipates almost entirely after a few days of leaving it to air out somewhere ventilated.
The construction quality of the Nuttsling is generally pretty good. There are several mould-lines and creases along the surface so it’s not perfect, but these aren’t that noticeable and don’t spoil the overall aesthetic. Two of the openings in the Nuttsling feature a slight divot, designed to accommodate the corpus spongiosum – the third erection chamber of the penis through which the urethra runs. This is intended to reduce pressure on the urethra and allow ejaculation whilst the toy is being worn. There is some slight branding on the product, with the word “Nuttsling” embossed on one side.

When it comes to putting on the Nuttsling it’s important to get the orientation of it right. Just like with the Cocksling I can’t tell you how many photos I’ve seen on Google image search of guys wearing it backwards. Start with it in the position shown in the image at the top of this post. The Nuttsling has three holes: a wide angled-hole at the back which is designed to sit flush against the body, a rectangular hole at the front which the penis comes out of, and a circular hole at the bottom which the testicles hang through. Once you have that sorted you can put it on. It doesn’t matter really if you try to do this when you’re erect or flaccid as here is where the stretchy material comes into play. The material really does stretch incredibly; you could put your fist through the smallest hole and wear it like a bracelet if you desired. To start off simply pop your penis through the back hole and out of the front. With that taken care of you now need to get the balls into place, and this is probably the hardest part. Because the Nuttsling is designed as a ball stretcher there is a lot more material in the section which sits around the balls, and somehow you have to manage to get the testicles all the way through it without them getting trapped. Like with the Cocksling you need to stretch out the hole at the bottom and the hole at the back until you have a piece of material that looks like a strap, and then you hook this strap over and under the balls to slide them into place. This is easier said than done, and at times you feel as though you could really use a third hand to help with this. One thing you want to be sure of is that you get enough scrotal skin through the bottom hole to allow the testicles to pass through fully, otherwise when you let go of the material you will find your testicles getting stuck in the hole and squeezed quite uncomfortably. If you have a partner then it’s probably worthwhile to seek their assistance when putting the Nuttsling on.
Wearing the Nuttsling is actually a very comfortable and pleasurable experience, even with the added ball stretching coming into play. The material fits snugly around the penis and testicles and doesn’t feel too tight at all. It’s like a constant gentle and reaffirming squeeze around the whole area. The part of the Nuttsling which sits around the testicles has a notably narrower opening than on the Cocksling, with an extra ridge of material internally, so this squeezes slightly more firmly above the testicles. After you’ve put it on initially it can take a little adjustment of loose skin to get the fit just how you want it, especially with the extra length of material which pulls the balls away from the body, compared with the Cocksling. In this instance the less pubic hair you have the better, as it can get caught when you’re trying to slide a finger under one of the rings to stretch it out while you move things around. Like with the Cocksling one of the interesting things about the Nuttsling is that when you first put it on it has a tendency to pull the foreskin back and then hold the skin in place around the base of the shaft, preventing the shaft skin from being very mobile or able to slide back over the head again. This can be quite fun if you’ve always wanted to try out sex with a bare glans, but otherwise you can simply hold the Nuttsling against the body and then slide some more skin through the hole at the front, and restore the normal functionality of your foreskin. Because the Nuttsling is in many senses a cock ring it functions in the same manner and helps to keep blood in the penis and create a stronger erection, as well as gently pressing on the perineum. The separate hole for the testicles stretches them away from the body to a nice degree – about twice as much as on the Cocksling – but without ever feeling uncomfortable, and prevents them from becoming closely tucked up under the penis as they typically would do prior to orgasm. This has the effect of making you much more aware of the balls, and the scrotum almost seems more sensitive to light touch. The Nuttsling is great for use during all forms of sex, and even during masturbation, but one thing to note is that due to the design of it it does cover the bottom inch of the shaft, meaning you potentially lose that in insertable length. Like with any cock ring it’s advisable not to wear it for more than 30mins at a time in order to restore normal blood flow to the genitals; I had noticed that my balls has begun to feel slightly cold to the touch after prolonged use, so that’s probably a good indicator of when to stop. The Nuttsling can be quite difficult to take off once you’re done; getting the penis out is no problem, but trying to slide some fingers through the narrower opening around the balls, and then trying to stretch out the longer and thicker length of material can be awkward at times. It’s not like you’re ever going to get stuck in it, but it does require a little patience during removal.
To care for the Nuttsling and prolong its life you want to avoid using oil-based lubricants when wearing it, and simply wash it with anti-bacterial soap and hot water after usage.
Overall I  do really like the Nuttsling and could happily recommend it to anyone interested in ball stretching. Personally I prefer the Cocksling ever so slightly, but that’s nothing more than a matter of individual preference.

Smooth and Deep Penis Plug

I was the accidental recipient of this penis plug the other day, and while I had offered to return it the very fine people at UberKinky told me that I could keep it, so I felt the least I could do would be to write a review for it. I’m rather fond of how the bead matches the other one, and it makes it interesting to compare the two.

The Smooth and Deep penis plug is a 4″ (10cm) long surgical steel rod, designed to be inserted into the tip of the penis. Much like a urethral sound the plug acts to stimulate the penis from the inside, the only difference being that it’s a little shorter. The shape of the plug incorporates a uniform 8mm wide shaft which does seem a little thick at first, but which is still suitable for a beginner.

The surface of the plug is completely smooth and shiny, with a polished finish free from any blemishes or defects, and this is one of the benefits of it being made from metal. When you consider where it’s intended to be inserted it’s very important that the finish be of a high quality, and that it won’t easily succumb to scratches or indentations, as the lining of the urethra is very delicate and susceptible to irritation. The other advantages of metal are that it can be completely sterilised, which is a wise precaution to take before use in order to lower the risk of UTIs, especially if you want to share the toy with a partner, and also that metal is a fantastic material for temperature play, so if you fancy a little bit of cold when you use it you can simply pop it in the fridge or a glass of ice water beforehand.

The plug has an attractive appearance, but it’s rather nondescript on the whole, and could easily be mistaken for part of a key chain. The tip of the plug is rounded off but is still quite blunt, and there’s no real taper to speak of. The shaft is completely straight and maintains a thickness of 8mm for the majority of the length, before briefly narrowing in an hourglass shape near the far end. In total the insertable portion makes up 3 1/4″ of the length, which is slightly less than the Undulating plug. The plug is finished off by a decoratively-contoured end piece through which a large ring is inserted. The ring is decorated with a blue and white bead, and it acts as a finger-loop to aid with removing the plug, and to prevent the risk of over-insertion and accidentally losing the product deep inside the body. The ring also gives rise to the possibility of attaching weights to it, tying bondage rope to it, or anything similar you might think of.

When it comes to using the plug you will need a lubricant, and a specialist sterile lube such as Very Deep or Surgilube is recommended as a safety precaution. The rounded tip helps it to slide nice and easily into the meatus and down the urethra, and while the feeling may seem slightly unusual at first you won’t experience any discomfort. After around 1 1/2″ of the plug have been inserted you may begin to notice some slight resistance as the urethra leaves the spongy tissue of the glans and flattens out against the shaft. As the plug isn’t tapered you want to take the next step slowly, and with a little gentle, continuous, pressure the rest of the plug will slide steadily down into the penis, until all that can be seen is the end protruding from the head. Looking at the penis like this, with the ring and its bead, it’s possible to imagine for a moment what it might be like to have a piercing there.

There are a variety of ways to enjoy using the plug while it’s inserted, and the first would be just to masturbate while it’s there. This can make for an interesting sensation as you can feel the firm metal rod in there when you touch the outside of the penis, and it provides internal stimulation as you squeeze. Often in the course of this the plug will start to slide out of the penis, requiring you to stop and push it back in, and the metal ring also tends to jangle around a bit in the process. Another way is to slowly slide the plug in and out of the penis, which is an unusual yet strangely enjoyable sensation. You don’t experience the different points of stimulation like you do with the Undulating plug, but the increased thickness overall gives the urethra a much fuller feeling which is pleasurable in its own right. Probably the final way to use it is to hold a vibrator to the end and allow the vibrations to pass through it and travel deep into the penis, though I had less luck with this as mine was too powerful and just bounced off the surface.

Most of the time you will be inserting the plug into the penis while it’s erect, but that’s not to say it can’t be enjoyed while the penis is flaccid if this is desired. You can even go from hard to soft, or soft to hard while the plug is inserted if you play around with it for a bit. The plug is better suited for wearing in an extended capacity as the opening to the urethra will sit at the narrow hourglass-shaped point, helping to hold the plug  inside the penis for longer. The effect of this is somewhat limited though as there is no ring of muscle at the tip of the penis to securely grab onto anything, so over time it will gradually work its own way out. It is feasible that you could attempt to strap the ring to something in an effort to keep it in place more permanently.

The packaging for the plug is fairly simplistic, but that’s fine by me as it keeps costs down and means less to throw away. The plug comes inside a small zip-lock bag, which in turn is wrapped up in bubble wrap to protect it during transit, but when you take it out and see the quality of the product you realise that it wouldn’t look amiss inside a small wooden box, or a leather slip case, so that’s an idea for long term storage.

On the whole I’m really pleased with the Smooth and Deep penis plug and would happily recommend it to anyone who was considering urethral play. It has a fairly simple design, but it’s a design that really works, and it both looks and feels great. If you want a plug that’s filling and that stays in place, then this is the one to pick.

Undulating Penis Plug

This week I’ve been busily inserting more foreign objects into my urethra, thanks to my new friends over at UberKinky who generously sent me a couple of penis plugs to test out for them. It’s not as alarming as it sounds so check out the review below to learn more.

The Undulating Penis Plug is a 4″ (10cm) long surgical steel rod, designed to be inserted into the tip of the penis. Much like a urethral sound the plug acts to stimulate the penis from the inside, the only difference being that it’s a little shorter. The shape of the plug incorporates a combination of different sized and shaped areas along the shaft, with the widest areas having a width of 8mm, while the two narrow parts are only 5mm.
The surface of the plug is completely smooth and shiny, with a polished surface free from any blemishes or defects, and this is one of the benefits of it being made from metal. When you consider where it’s intended to be inserted it’s very important that the finish be of a high quality, and that it won’t easily succumb to scratches or indentations, as the lining of the urethra is very delicate and susceptible to irritation. The other advantages of metal are that it can be completely sterilised, which is a wise precaution to take before use in order to lower the risk of UTIs, especially if you want to share the toy with a partner, and also that metal is a fantastic material for temperature play, so if you fancy a little bit of cold when you use it you can simply pop it in the fridge or a glass of ice water beforehand.
The plug has an attractive appearance, but it’s rather nondescript on the whole, mostly resembling some sort of strange key that you might expect to find in the bottom of a toolbox. The tip of the plug is vaguely conical in shape, but with a rounded point for safety reasons, and it gently tapers out to its maximum 8mm width over the distance of 1cm. Behind it the shaft of the plug is completely straight and has a 5mm width for most of its length, with the exception of a short bulge in the middle where it gently expands up to 8mm, and then back down again. In total the insertable portion makes up 3 3/8″ of the length, and it’s finished off by an 8mm wide ‘stopper’ on the end, through which a large ring is inserted. The ring is decorated with a blue and white bead, and it acts as a finger-loop to aid with removing the plug, and to prevent the risk of over-insertion and accidentally losing the product deep inside the body. The ring also gives rise to the possibility of attaching weights to it, tying bondage rope to it, or anything similar you might think of.

When it comes to using the plug you will need a lubricant, and a specialist sterile lube such as Very Deep or Surgilube is recommended as a safety precaution. The tapered tip helps it to slide nice and easily into the meatus and down the urethra, and while the feeling may seem slightly unusual at first you won’t experience any discomfort. After around 1 1/2″ of the plug has been inserted you may begin to notice some slight resistance, at this point the bulge at the centre of the plug will be resting against the end of the penis poised to make entry, so it can be a good time to take a brief pause. With a little gentle, continuous, pressure the rest of the plug will slide slowly down into the penis, until all that can be seen is the stopper protruding from the end. Looking at the penis like this, with the ring and its bead, it’s possible to imagine for a moment what it might be like to have a piercing there.

There are a variety of ways to enjoy using the plug while it’s inserted, and the first would be just to masturbate while it’s there.

Often in the course of this the plug will start to slide out of the penis, requiring you to stop and push it back in, and the metal ring also tends to jangle around a bit in the process. Another way is to slowly slide the plug in and out of the penis, and the shape of it makes it especially suited for this. The width of the tip and the wide section in the middle of the body provide two distinct points which can be felt moving around inside the urethra. This is an interesting sensation, and pleasurable in an unconventional sort of way. You can position it so that the central bulge emerges completely from the end of the penis, while at the same time the tip of the plug is stimulating lower down. This moving expansion of the urethra almost feels similar to when the last of a large quantity of ejaculate drips out after an orgasm. Probably the final way to use it is to hold a vibrator to the end and allow the vibrations to pass through it and travel deep into the penis, though I had less luck with this as mine was too powerful and just bounced off the surface.

Most of the time you will be inserting the plug into the penis while it’s erect, but that’s not to say it can’t be enjoyed while the penis is flaccid if this is desired. You can even go from hard to soft, or soft to hard while the plug is inserted if you play around with it for a bit. The plug isn’t ideal for wearing in any sort of extended capacity as there’s no real way to hold in inside the penis, and it will gradually work its own way out, though feasibly you could attempt to strap the ring to something in an effort to keep it in place.

On the whole I’m really pleased with the Undulating Penis Plug and would happily recommend it to anyone who was considering urethral play. The gentle taper of the tip and the modest size makes it suitable for beginners, while the undulating shape will provide enough stimulation to still please those who have used similar products before.
