The first example of enantioselective S‐H insertion reactions of sulfoxonium ylides is reported. Under the influence of thiourea catalysis, excellent levels of enantiocontrol (up to 95% ee) and yields (up to 97%) are achieved for 31 examples in S‐H insertion reactions of aryl thiols and α‐carbonyl sulfoxonium ylides.
