The urethra - you know, the tube that carries pee from the bladder to the outside world when you go to the toilet - is about 20cm long in men and people who have penises. In women and those with vaginas, it's less than 4cm on average. And, there are sex toys designed specifically to stimulate it. Topher Taylor, a sex expert at Clonezone explains there are many reasons why you might want to try urethral play using these toys. A lot of people say the psychological association to exploring something considered taboo also contributes to the pleasure. Many men have described the sensation as "orgasmic".

Types of Urethral Toys – Lust Plugs
Urethral play can be an exciting and interesting new experience for anyone looking to broaden their horizons. When it comes to buying your toys though, there can be a lot of choice and you might not know which is for you. There are four types of urethral toys , each with their own designs and sensations. Penis plugs tend to be the first type of urethral toy someone will experiment with. They are usually quite small, and will only penetrate a few inches into the urethra. Most penis plugs will have a T-bar or ring at one end, which stops you from inserting the toy too far and losing it. A penis plug will most often be made from either silicone or stainless steel.
