I think it is normal or insignificant

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Health care magic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description it appears that you had some peristaltic movements in the penis along the course of of urethra. These kind of vibration like feeling can occur normally as well as in disease conditions such as nephrolithisis.

In my opinion few instances of pleasurable activities acoss the penis is normal.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for follow up.

If the problem is persistent we need to look for other causes. The prominent causes include bladder stone, blockage in urethra or stricture in urethra, urinary tract infection among others.

As stated above occasional rhythmic vibration can be considered normal but if they persist I do not think they are normal.

I hope this answers you further.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
