Urethral play is a fascinating and unusual sexual practise. Once you manage to get your head around it though, it can produce some extremely pleasurable sensations that you might not otherwise be able to feel. Women also have urethras, and can take just as much pleasure from urethral insertion as men can. It will have a sphincter, which opens and closes to control the flow of urine out of the body. Female urethras are significantly shorter than their male counterparts, and are only designed to carry urine. As the female urethra is so much shorter, women are more prone to urinary tract infections than men.
