Cock Rings

So for those who don’t know, a cock ring is a ring that goes around the penis, usually at the base, but some are designed to be around the scrotum “testicle cuff”, mid shaft, and tip. They can also go by the name “erection ring” when used for erectile dysfunction. They are used to maintain an erection, or to maximize the experience of an orgasm. When commonly used on the base, it traps blood inside the penis, and causes the penis to become more engorged, and stay erect longer, even after orgasm.

Cock rings come in various materials, but in order to ensure it doesn’t get stuck, you should use a stretchy material such as silicone. Another benefit of using a high quality material like silicone is that it is body safe, hypo allergenic and easy to clean. Some can include vibrators, either on the ring or sticking out from the ring, massaging the perineum, scrotum, or anus. Likewise, the vibrators can cause pleasure for the partner, because it gives that added stimulation sometimes needed to achieve an orgasm. A cock ring that has three rings, used to restrain the testicles, can intensify or change the feelings associated with orgasm. The one downside of these add-on’s is that it can increase the risk of discomfort.

Some tips for using a cock ring include:

  1. Buy a quality product; You don’t want to buy something that will either break, or get stuck during erection. Be aware of the sizing guides, and if you have to, contact customer service with any questions regarding size or materials. An honest company will be transparent when it comes to safety.
  2. If you can, stay away from metal, or glass, unless your confident about sizing, and your ability to use the product. You want a material you can cut away in an emergency, unless you feel like explaining to the 911 operator why your dicks blue 😉
  3. USE LUBRICANT! As with using any sex toy, lube is your friend, your true love, the duct tape of the sex world. It will help get the ring on easier and off easier. Also be sure you use the proper lubricant for the material, water based only for silicone.
  4. Don’t wear your ring for longer then 20-30 minutes. Wearing it longer can cause a bruise to form (bruises are popped vessels after all) or permeant damage to your penis (yikes!)
  5. If at any point you loose feeling in your penis, or testicles, they become discolored, cold or tingly, or you have any other discomfort, take the ring off immediately! If these feelings continue go to the ER straight away. Again, even though using toys are nothing to be embarrassed about, most people don’t want to have doctors hovering around a prized body part with sharp tools.
