It is a tube which is used to drain something from inside the body to the outside. The most common catheter is probably a urinary catheter, and a FOLEY is probably the most often used. It simply drains the urine from the bladder to outside the body. Some people use a collection bag to catch the urine, or some people use the intermittent method in which the bladder is emptied several times a day into a toilet. Depending on your medical situation, your urologist would be able to prescribe the best type for you.

Another use which has gained great popularity in recent years, is a catheter fetish used in medical play in BDSM. Lots of people find urethral stimulation indescribably satisfying, with more intense orgasms than they have ever experienced.
