Cock Ring Guide

A cock ring is a simplistic, multi-purpose sex toy for men which is excellent for both solo play, and for sex with a partner.

Worn at the base of the penis, a cock ring restricts blood flow, thus trapping blood in the penis - as a result the man enjoys a much harder erection which is beneficial for both him and his partner. Another great advantage of wearing a cock ring is that his erection will last longer and produce much more powerful and intense orgasms.

 

Types of cock rings

 

Vibrating Cock Rings 

A vibrating cock ring is great for adding new sensations to sex or to solo play. Usually with a cock ring the vibrations are provided by a small, removable bullet vibrator; if the ring is being used by a man for an enhanced masturbation experience, he might find it pleasurable to have the bullet facing downwards giving additional sensation to the testicles. If the cock ring is being used with a female partner, it can be highly pleasurable to have the bullet facing upwards to stimulate her clitoris during sex.

Double Cock Rings 

Double cock rings have been designed in such a way that the smaller of the rings is worn around the penis, and the larger ring is placed around the testicles. Having both the penis and the balls restricted during sex or masturbation will make the penis harder and orgasms even more intense.

Textured Cock Rings

Some cock tings feature nodules, bumps, or raised textures - usually made from a flexible material, which have been designed to give additional pleasure to the receiver whilst being penetrated vaginally or anally.

Cock Sleeves

A cock sleeve is a little different to a cock ring, as it covers more of the shaft. Wearing a cock sleeve will add more girth to your penis, which is beneficial to your partner, as well as being nice and tight for the wearer. Cock sleeves are usually textured for added stimulation to the receiver. A cheeky trick for solo play however is to turn a textured cock sleeve inside-out and enjoy the new sensations along the shaft of the penis whilst masturbating.   

 

What to consider when buying a cock ring...

 

Choosing the right size

A cock ring should fit the size of your penis with a comfortable amount of restriction. A ring that's too small could be painfully tight, and a cock ring that's too big won't provide much benefit to the wearer.

It is recommended that you take a measurement of your penis so as to buy a cock ring which is the perfect fit for you. In order to do this, you simply measure the very base of your penis with a flexible tape measure, and this will give you the circumference measurement. If you're looking at a cock ring which only gives a diameter measurement, then divide your circumference by Pi (3.142) and that will give you the diameter measurement.

Which material?

Cock rings come in a wide variety of different materials; silicone, metal, rubber, leather - but which is the right cock ring for you?

A cock ring made from a stretchy material such a rubber or silicone will be easier to put on and take off, and one ring can fit a wider range of penis sizes. Also a stretchy cock ring may be more restrictive, thus giving a harder erection. 

Leather cock rings, or cock rings made from a fabric, are great because they're adjustable. As the penis gets harder, the cock ring can be loosened or adjusted if the restriction becomes too uncomfortable.

A metal cock ring can be a great one to try, but should be used with caution as it's not easy to remove. As the penis gets harder the metal cock ring becomes more and more restrictive at the base - so don't get one that's too small!

Use with a lubricant

It is recommended that you use a lubricant with a cock ring (except maybe a leather or fabric cock ring) as this will make application and removal easier, as well as the experience more pleasurable and comfortable for both you can your partner.

If you're using a silicone cock ring, you should only be using it with a water based lubricant as other lubes may degrade the material. Similarly, if you're using a condom during sex, you can only be using a water based lubricant.
