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.

You can buy the Smooth and Deep penis plug from Uber Kinky
