Catheters.

For all of you you have been begging for them (literally!). here you go! We have decided to once again carry a few offerings for Catheters, due to the overwhelming requests!

Thanks so much to all of your loyalty and support. as always, be safe, sane and consensual. but most of all: HAVE FUN!

Keep checking back in as we add more.

Get educated! Read all about about Catheters and Catheter Play in our Medical Fetish Library.

Of all the insertables used in role play, the catheters offer a special sort of control game for the BDSM scene. There is no control over the urinary function: if the catheter is left open, the bladder will drain completely into a leg bag (as shown left) or a larger table/bedside drainage bag and continue to drain as more urine is produced by the body.

If the catheter is closed off by a clamping device, they cannot urinate. even if they wanted to! And you can be sure. Insertion and removal are definitely highlights of this procedure!

As with all insertables, play safe and remember catheters must be played with only if they are sterilized, so we suggest getting a few, to be sure you’re getting a sealed packaged catheter.

Catheters: Brief History

The earliest precursor to the present day Foley catheter is documented in 3000 B.C. It is believed that Egyptians used metal pipes to perform bladder catheterizations. As early as 400 B.C. hollow reeds and pipes were used in cadavers to study the form and function of cardiac valves.

In 1844, Claude Bernard inserted a mercury thermometer into the carotid artery of a horse and advanced it through the aortic valve into the left ventricle to measure blood temperature. It is because of his work that the use of catheters became the method of standard for physiologists in the study of cardiovascular blood flow.

Adolph Fick took another major step in the development of cardiac catheterization in 1870. His famous note on the calculation of blood flow is the basis for today’s cardiac procedures.

Among the earliest published descriptions of human catheterization were done by Fritz Bleichroeder, E. Unger, and W. Loeb in 1912. They were among the first to insert catheters into the blood vessels without x-ray visualization. Interest in catheterization was also stimulated with the advent of chemotherapy.

Early chemotherapy required the injection of drugs directly into the central circulation. Bleichroeder inserted catheters into dog arteries and assessed the effects after leaving them in place for several hours. He reported no complications or clots.

The Foley Catheter came into existence in the 1930s. Frederick E. B. Foley began to experiment with different catheters of the time. He realized that urinary catheters would easily slip out of the bladder because there was no way to hold them in place.

Foley experimented with different methods of securing the catheter until he came up with the idea of attaching a balloon-like device to the end of the catheter. The device would then be able to be placed and then inflated from the outside. By 1934, Foley catheters were on the market. Other than in material, the Foley catheter remains relatively unchanged in design today!

Male External Catheters or “Texas Catheters”

Male external catheters have traditionally been used for the management of urinary incontinence due to surgery, injury and disease. These “condom type” devices are placed over the penis and attached to a collection device, usually a leg bag which is worn under the clothes for mobility or a bedside drainage bag for prolonged bed stays.

The nonsensitizing adhesive provides a reliable bond to the skin for extra confidence and maximum wear time. A kink-proof funnel helps ensure uninterrupted urine flow.

They are clear which allows easy inspection of skin and attachment area and made of either latex or silicone.

Our wide band Texas catheter has the adhesive built into almost the entire sheath wall. It has 70% more adhesive area than is found in other self-adhering styles, which helps prevent urine migration up the penis shaft, which results in premature removal, and it helps prevent urine build-up around the head of the penis, which results in catheter blow-off!

We offer three diameter sizes to provide proper fit and greater reliability!
