Material-If you are new to urethra sounding you might want to buy something flexible like silicone. But, most people like metal toys because they are smooth and slide in easier than silicone toys.
Sterilize yourself and The Toy– The urethra is a delicate area, and if you don’t wash your penis or vagina, and sterilize your sex toy before it can lead to infections.
