Article: Put A Ring On It (Your Guide To Cock Rings)

Browse the adult shelves of the convenience stores bold enough to have a sex selection and chances are you’ll see at least one cock ring.

Typically it’s got a one-use bullet on it, typically it’s made of jelly, and typically it’s incredibly flexible.

And, if this is your only experience with cock rings then you’re missing out.

What Is A Cock Ring?

A cock ring is, in the most explanatory terms, a ring that goes on a person’s cock.

Specifically, the ring generally gets placed at the base of the shaft or, for cock and ball rings, underneath both the shaft and scrotum.

Why Use a Cock Ring?

Cock rings are typically used for practical reasons.

When a penis gets ready for sex blood flows rapidly to the area, causing it to swell and creating an erection.

Tantus does good silicone cock rings.

A cock ring essentially secures any blood that has rushed to the shaft and keeping blood from flowing freely out. All the while blood is continuing to pump in to the penis creating a larger, harder, and more impressive looking erection.

The results of this are varied but include making penetration easier, enhancing the point of climax, delaying ejaculation, and creating a firmer and more defined sensation for the person taking the shaft. I can personally attest for how great a swollen shaft feels against the G-Spot when enhanced by an effective cock ring.

But, beyond this, cock rings have other uses.

The most notable one is health related: help people with erectile dysfunction maintain an erection once achieved or delaying climax for those who suffer with premature ejaculation.

Some cock rings also come attached with a bullet vibrator, anal rings, or other items which help create a couples experience, pleasing both partners. These are used to make the experience a more mutual one and are a great way to bring sex toys in to the bedroom if they’re not currently an option (what with the heavy focus on supplemental enhancement and joint enjoyment).

Those in a BDSM relationship may use cock rings as part of a power exchange, acting as a literal cock tease, or a visual promise for those involved.

And, finally, some cock rings just look fucking sexy, and people buy them for the sheer sake of looking and feeling good about themselves. (Right on!)

Types of Cock Ring

Given the diverse nature of cock rings, there’s a cock ring out there for pretty much every occasion, but here (roughly) are the main types:

Adjustable Cock Rings: Best for show and safety, these rings don’t offer too much in the way of serious benefits but they look good and come off quickly. Two important elements.

Silicone Cock Rings: Made from body safe materials, silicone cock rings are semi-firm, semi-flexible, and maintain and enhance erections well. If treated properly they’ll last for many years too. A real go-to.

Soft Cock Rings: Usually made from jelly, TPR or TPE, these rings are porous, so will need a reliable antibacterial cleaner. Still, the flexibility they provide makes putting them on and taking them off a lot easier, making them a favourite for many. Just please avoid jelly. Pretty please.

Metal Cock Rings: Only for very experienced users, metal cock rings will give extreme restriction and firmness but will need to be custom measured and can cause problems should you not be able to remove it. Not one to be used lightly.

Textured Cock Rings: These can be silicone or flexible, the main difference being that they add some extra texture for the user, making climax even more intense.

Vibrating Cock Rings: A great option for couples, a luxury vibrating cock ring will typically be made from silicone and will have a vibrating section to stimulate the clitoris. Expect no less in terms of material, lest you risk a urinary tract infection for the vulva-owner.

Toy-Enchanced Rings: Butt plugs, perineum sections, an anal dildo. A cock ring but with add-ons. Need I say more?

Cock and Ball Rings: A more enhancing product, cock and ball rings swell the testicles as well as the cock, making ball play more viable. These can also make erections firmer, but no promises.

Torture Rings: Metal too tame? Why not add nails into the mix? Or a lock? All safe, of course, all made to purpose and great of BDSM. Get your kink on my lovelies.

Cock Ring Safety

So you’ve seen an option you and it’s time to get your groove on, right?

Almost.

Beforehand there’s some safety tips and general maintenance to keep in mind.

If you wanna be my puppy, you gotta get safety down.

Obviously, if you do have ED or premature ejaculation issues then cock rings are not a substitute for professional help and shouldn’t be treated as such.

Never wear a cock ring for more than 20-30 minutes, stop immediately if you feel any pain and never fall asleep with one on.

If you penis doesn’t go flaccid after use make sure to get medical help. It’s not ideal, I know, but neither is long-term damage.

Some people find that shaving their pubic hair helps with the application of a cock ring, especially when using soft materials, but this varies.

In all cases a good water based lubricant never goes amiss, silicone can be used with metal but be careful with other materials. You don’t want a melting ring on your member.

And That’s It!
