What Are Cock Rings?

Cock rings are one of the earliest and purest forms of sex toys designed for men. They are made in the form of a ring which sits at the base of the penis and performs a constricting action on an erection. This squeezing from the cock ring actually stops the blood flowing from the penis and holds it inside to give a much harder and larger erection.

Cock rings now come in a variety of types, and are often made from rubber or silicone, and are a super-purposeful stretchy ring.

For men who wear cock rings there can be a significant ego boost, and this is because they have a harder and larger erection than without one. For partners, this can also be a welcome change and a pleasurable experience, allowing the play to last longer.

Cock rings can take some getting used to because of the extra pressure you can feel in your penis.

Different Types & Styles

There are many types of penis rings available, and designs have moved on from a simple rubber ring, although this type is still very popular. Here are the different kinds of cock rings you can find…

  • Donut rings – This is the most basic type and is the rubber or silicone ring type. These can be used around the base of the shaft, or a larger one can be worn to include constriction of the testicles.
  • Clitoris stimulating rings – Like a rabbit vibrator, there are cock rings which are available with small ears or bumps and ridges that rub the clitoris during penetration. Other models come with small bullet vibrators which can give added pleasure to the wearer and the partner.
  • Adjustable rings – Because finding a penis ring that feels comfortable in use can be hard, there are some that come in the form of a loop. These have sliding beads which adjust the amount of constriction on the penis and can be ideal for beginners until they know the amount of constriction they like.
  • Rigid rings – This type is for the more experienced wearer who knows the size of their penis. Being mostly made of steel, they can come in all manner of styles and weights. Many of this design also incorporate rings which fasten around the testicles too, and because they’re not as restrictive around the penis, they can be worn under clothing for some cool steel stimulation throughout the day.
  • Double rings – Not only does this type have a ring to constrict the testicles, but more advanced types also come with a vibrating butt plug so the wearer can receive a prostate massage at the same time.

How to Choose the Best Penis Ring for You

When looking for a penis ring, the most crucial thing is the size. If you pick one that’s too small then this will hurt and it could also do some damage. Knowing the size of your penis is vital, so here are a few steps to find out your size.

Take these measurements while erect:

  1. Take a soft measuring tape.
  2. Wrap the tape around the base of your erect penis without being too tight. This is the measurement for regular cock rings.
  3. For a penis ring which includes the testicles, wrap the tape measure around both the base of the penis and the scrotum (as close as you can to the body).
  4. Retake measurements to be sure.
  5. Take the circumference measurement and calculate the diameter. Divide the number by 3.142 (Pi)

If you are in any doubt, always choose a larger size than a size smaller.

Once you know the size of your penis, you then need to decide on the type you want. Even the simplest rings can come in a wide range, from simple rubber rings to cock rings with bobbles, so this can take a while to find the right one.

It can be advisable to use the simplest type before moving onto one which includes the testicles. And this is because there can be a significant price difference, and you’ll want to try it out a little first.

After you are used to the feeling, you can move onto vibrating or rigid cock rings, but all will make you bigger and harder, and the only difference is how you feel wearing it, and if it will please your partner as much as you.

What Are the Benefits

It’s true, cock rings are worn to make men feel better and satisfy their egos to some extent. There are, however, a few benefits men can obtain. Here are some of the benefits which are obtainable without including vanity or ego…

  • Erectile dysfunction – These are usually prescribed by doctors for the treatment of men with erection problems. They are a big help when men lose their erection through different factors, and cock rings can help regain confidence.
  • More sensitive – The penis becomes more sensitive when a cock ring is being worn. This can be very satisfying, but until you get used to it, it can be overwhelming and cause you to ejaculate too soon. Choosing different positions can help with this.
  • Lasting longer –When the wearer is used to the added sensations, wearing a penis ring can help delay ejaculation. This can be more pleasing for the wearer and the partner too, for sustaining pleasure for longer.
  • More intense orgasms – With blood flow being trapped in the penis, there is a lot more pressure, so when it’s time to finish, this can be far more explosive and more intense than usual.
  • Harder and bigger erections – An erection is much harder than normal, and it will be larger because the blood flow is unable to flow from the penis. This can be a turn-on for the partner because it feels like something new. The veins in the penis will also be bulging so the feel for both partners will be very different.

Some Safety Considerations

Many of the safety concerns and advice stem from what it’s like to wear a dick ring. It isn’t only the matter of slipping it on. There are a few things that are well worth remembering here. Let’s take a look…

  • Shaving pubic hair – This can make all the difference. Not only does a penis ring look much hotter on a freshly shaven pubic area, but it prevents having hairs caught in the ring which can bring a tear to the eyes. Ouch!
  • The correct fitting – If you wear a ring that’s too small for your cock, this will be very painful. It can also cause damage to the penis tissue. Alternatively, if you wear one that’s too small, it can be hard to remove, and your penis won’t be going soft for a while.
  • Limit the time – When you are wearing a cock ring, you should restrict the time you wear it for, to 30 minutes, and never longer than 45 minutes. With no blood flow, your penis can become cold, and it might even take on a bluish color. That’s not good. Keep an eye on the time to be sure.
  • Lube and the time to put it on – A ring should never be fitted to an already-erect penis. You should be semi-erect so it can slide on easily without force. Lubrication will also be a factor, and adding lube will help the wearing and removal.

Cleaning & Storage Tips

Cock rings are no different to other sex toys when it comes to caring for them. No matter what design you choose, you should never share them to prevent the chance of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) or bacterial infections from spreading.

The materials used in the cock ring construction also require different types of care. When it comes to washing, all can benefit from being washed in warm water with antibacterial soap. After washing, they can be left to air dry or be patted dry with a lint-free cloth. Steel cock rings should be thoroughly dried before storage because the last thing any man wants around his penis is signs of rust. Most though, are made from medical grade steel, but it is better to err on the side of caution for your health.

Silicone lubrication should never be used on stretchy cock rings, this can break the surface down which can then let in moisture. And before long, bacteria can start growing.

If you have one of the rechargeable cock rings that vibrate, these should never be used during use, and if batteries are removable, they must be removed during storage.

Cock rings that are made from silicone or other soft materials can stick together if touching similarly made sex toys. They should be stored in a cool dry place and separated from any other sex toys.

Silicone or other soft material cock rings can benefit from being sprinkled with cornstarch or renewal powder. This prevents them from sticking to anything and also prevents the surface from becoming sticky.

Can I Use a Cock Ring During Sexual Intercourse?

You can use your cock ring in almost any sexual activity you desire. They won’t interfere with your sexual activity and are designed for foreplay too. This isn’t to say you can’t wear a cock ring while masturbating. The increased arousal from feeling a harder and larger erection can increase your stimulation and pleasure. These really are perfect all-rounders.

Cock rings are well-designed as a pleasure device for the wearer, and now there are clit stimulation devices on the market too, so your female partner can gain more pleasure from you wearing a penis ring past just being satisfied with a harder and longer-lasting erection.

If you have a willing partner, there are one or two cock rings on the market which come with an added penis. These not only constrict your penis and your testicles, but they can give lots of double penetration fun to your partner.

Cock rings are not limited to the bedroom either. If you have the more basic types, you can use them for intercourse in the shower, or in the bathtub if they are designed as being waterproof.

Caution should be taken if you have a vibrating penis ring and decide to take it into the tub. These won’t be designed with water play intercourse in mind. Safety must be the priority.

Common Questions People Ask

How do you fit into a solid penis ring?

It might appear harder than it actually is, but being flaccid for this type of cock ring will help. You slip one testicle through the ring before following the second testicle. It should now sit around your scrotum. You then take the head of your penis and place it through the ring, and now pull back the ring so it sits close to your body.

Can you wear a cock ring for hours?

Stretchy types of cock rings should never be worn for more than 30 to 45 minutes. Leather or hard cock rings are often worn for hours when men like the feeling around their shaft and testicles. Keep checking for blood flow in the penis, and if it feels really uncomfortable, then you might need another size.

Can wearing a penis ring make your penis bigger?

A well-fitting cock ring will make your erection bigger for the time you wear it, but once it’s all over, your penis will return back to its regular size. The bigness only stays for the duration of the wear. Always check the manufacturer’s recommendations to be sure, as they might vary from product to product.
