Review: Steel Power Tools 10mm Double Ended Ribbed Urethral Dilator for Lovehoney


Posted June 18, 2016 by

I was sent this huge sound recently by Lovehoney (thanks, Leanne and Jess!) in exchange for this review. I’ve reviewed sounds for them in the past and they wanted to know what this one was like. I reviewed a sound for Jess recently, a similar, smaller version of this one. I was tempted to use the same words, just to write it all in caps or hire Brian Blessed to read it out in his booming voice. Basically, I loved the original size, but this one really takes sounding to a new level. It’s amazing.

I must start this review by stating that this is absolutely not a toy for beginners. Not even close. The style of toy is fine, just not the size. If you’re new to this, then you’ll need to work up to taking something this wide. Don’t be put off, though! You can buy similar devices in a smaller size.


Let’s assume, though, that you’re an avid urethral sound user and a size queen, like me. This might be the next toy for you. I’ve been sounding for years and, currently, can take sounds up to 11mm in diameter. This is a tiny bit smaller, at 10mm, but still huge by most people’s standards.

With this toy in particular, lube is your best friend. Of course, it’s always important in urethral play, but with the increased surface area of this sound, you need a little more than normal. I use “Very Deep” urethral lube, but there are a few different ones on the market you can use. When I first tried this toy, it took a while for the first bulb to slide in, even with a copious amount of lube, but it was worth the wait. As soon as the first one penetrated my urethra, past my frenulum, is slid all the way down and really blew me away. I was expecting it to feel good as I’ve been a regular user of the smaller version, but this was something else.


It’s hard to describe the feeling of something as big as this bumping down the inside of my penis. With the smaller toy, the bumps provide a really pleasing wavy sensation as they slide down. With this, they really do make you feel an intense popping. Especially the first bulb, which is a tiny bit bigger than the rest. The first bulb really pops on the way down, making way for the rest of them afterwards. It’s amazing on the way up, as well. As the first bulb is larger, I never quite take it out when playing. I simply pull it to the point where the initial bulb approaches my cock head and then slide it in again. I way “pull”, but it’s very gentle. As with any urethral toys, it’s very important not to force anything.


If you’re experienced in sounding but new to bigger sounds then you may not have hit any choke points. If that’s the case, you may find there are three points in the urethra that are tighter than others. The first is at the base of the cock head, the second is at the base of the urethra and the third is at the entrance to the bladder. Once you slide past these areas, it becomes easier until you reach the next one. With smaller sounds, these will never be an issue, but you should take them into account and be extra careful when you use bigger toys. For me, I only use this toy up to the base of my penis. I can’t yet go past the base with anything over 9mm, but that’s still pretty deep.

With larger toys, it’s also a lot harder to stay erect. Something pushing on the inside of the urethra, for some reason, makes it really difficult to keep that erection you may have started with. But that doesn’t matter at all. With this type of toy, it’s all about the sliding movement. With smaller sounds, you may want to just slide them in and stroke the shaft of your penis gently. With this one, it’s all about the in and out movement. So don’t worry if you can’t stay hard, you’ll probably not even notice and it won’t matter at all.


So who’s this toy for? Experienced urethral players who are looking for something a little more stimulating than a uniform sound. It may sound niche, but it doesn’t take long to build up to something this size so if you’re just starting out, you may find yourself using this kind of toy in a few months (or less). This toy feels much more intense than a regular 10mm sound and the type of play it encourages is different (much more sliding in and out).

Ultimately, this toy provides the most intense inner shaft sensations of any non-electro toy I own. I’ve felt some amazing sensations with longer, slimmer sounds that reach much deeper, but that’s not really what this toy was designed for. This is for sliding in and out of the penis and having your breath taken away by the bumps. It really is amazing. If you can take the size, I highly recommend it!

    I would buy a 12mm version of this in a heartbeat.
