Cock Rings

Cock rings (also referred to as penis rings, love rings, and pleasure rings), when inserted onto an erect penis, restrict the flow of blood from the penis back to the body thereby helping to sustain an erection. Cock rings are sometimes used in conjunction with penis pumps, with the pump used to generate the erection and the cock ring to sustain it. Obviously many men who don’t have issues getting or sustaining an erection also use cock rings purely for extra stimulation for himself and his partner. When inserted onto a semi-erect penis, a vibrating cock ring can give the extra stimulation required to really generate a rock hard erection.
Cock rings are available in a number of material types including jelly rubber, silicone penis rings, metal and even leather love rings. They come as a ring to surround the penis shaft only but also there are selections which will also have a ring that can surround the testicles for heightened stimulation. Vibrating cock rings are available which again will stimulate the wearer and the partner. For example, if penetrating a partner in anal sex, the vibrating cock ring will give pleasant sensations to the receiver’s highly sensitive anal entrance. For vaginal penetration, the vibrating ring which can contain bunny ears, effectively turns the man’s penis into a rabbit vibrator with the shaft stimulating internally as the vibrating ears stimulate the clitoris.

History of the Penis Ring

It might be surprising to have a section on “history” when it’s a guide about cock rings...but the humble cock ring does in fact have a history and it goes back a lot farther than you probably think! The first known written reference of men placing materials to encase their penis is in China approximately back in the 1200s. This is where it gets a little gruesome: the cock rings were said to be made from goats’ eyelids with the eyelashes still intact. The eyelids “rings” were more flexible than the eyelashes which being rigid, were said to increase pleasure during intercourse. Users of the ring at that time were said to be the upper echelons of society including royalty who had more “demand” on their erections as they had the necessity to satisfy a wife, a mistress and even some “side boys”! The cock ring continued its presence throughout history in different guises in terms of materials such as animal skins, beads and even stone until the patenting of vulcanised rubber in 1845. This new material paved the way for a more comfortable material to be used in the manufacture and shaping of the cock ring. 1930 is another significant year in the development of the cock ring (and many other sex toys!) as we know it today when latex rubber was brought to the market. By the 1960s and 70s, cock rings had made their way into porn and print and continue to be a popular adult toy today.

Getting the Cock Ring On!

Cock Ring On

When you want to use your cock ring, your penis should be semi-erect or fully erect; stretch the ring part using your fingers and slowly roll it down your shaft (or get your partner to do it if you’re not alone at that stage) - plenty lubricant will make this a lot easier!. You want to do it carefully and slowly as obviously catching stray pubic hairs will hurt! When you get the cock ring to the base of your penis, see how tight it feels in terms of pressure. It should be tight but not so tight that it is uncomfortable. If it’s too tight, it’s restricting the blood flow which will not make the sensation pleasant. If you’re a new to using the ring, leave it for a few minutes to correctly judge. For those who are used to wearing a penis ring, the common length of time to wear one is around 20 minutes and it is recommended not to wear a cock ring for longer than 30 minutes at any one time. If your cock ring has an extra loop to go around the testicular area, stretch the top part on the penis first and secondly fit the lower loop around your testicles until you feel that it is comfortably in place. As with using any sex toy, lube is important; it will make the whole experience that bit more comfortable and it will ease the process of putting on the ring. Any lube is fine but perhaps try water based lubricant as that won’t damage the ring, no matter the type of material.

Couples & Cock Rings

Cock rings are a fantastic couples’ toy and would make a clever addition to the bedroom because not only will they make an erection harder, extend the session and enhance the climax for the guy wearing, the small toy can work wonders for clitoral stimulation! If you’re gay and want to use a cock ring, they offer so many options in terms of visual stimulation too. For example, it can be a real turn to see your guy wearing a spiked jelly cock ring! Lesbian couples too don’t have to be omitted from the fun with cock rings; they can add a penis ring onto a dildo of their choice and slot it into their strapon harness and choose a cock ring with a built in clit’ stimulator so that the receiving partner can feel the amazing impact.

Materials
Cock Rings specification

The range of cock rings on the market is vast and they come in many materials, shapes and sizes. If you’re a beginner to penis rings, it’s best to use an adjustable version or one that is flexible eg a jelly rubber ring as opposed to a metal ring. Seasoned cock ring users will know what size ring to get so will be able to find a metal ring to suit their penis’ girth. The issue arises, and it can happen, when the ring is applied, the penis becomes engorged to a point that it creates discomfort and you find it difficult to prise the metal ring from your penis. It’s rare but it can happen and sometimes medical intervention is required to remove it. That’s why it’s best to begin with a “friendly” material penis ring such as jelly or silicone which are nice and flexible. Once you get used to what you like and don’t like about cock rings, you will be able to advance to different materials. Reputable adult toy sites should carry the exact penis ring measurement specifications so that if you measure your penis in terms of its girth, (the measurement sizing around the penis) you’ll know exactly what one to get. We list the girth range for every cock ring on our website - the reason there is a range of measurements is because the rings are very often quite flexible.

Measuring the Penis Girth
Measuring the Penis Girth

To measure the penis girth, simply get a piece of string, hold one end of the string at the widest point of your penis (which is usually the middle of the shaft) and wrap the string around the penis. Mark where the strings meet on the shaft with a pen or some form of marker. Lay the piece of string beside a ruler and measure between the two marked points. This is the girth of your penis and you can use this to choose the right sized cock ring for you.

Lube

We’ve mentioned it already but it’s important to mention it again: lube is a real essential for this type of toy. Cock rings can be a little tricky to get on and to maneuver especially for a beginner so lubricant will assist you greatly in this area.

Is it OK to Cum While Wearing a Cock Ring

The cock ring may slightly impede the escape of semen from the penis but this will simply dribble out once the ring is removed so wearing throughout the session including the climax is not an issue.

Storage of the Cock Ring

After you finish having fun with your cock ring, and hopefully following a spectacularly successful climax, you should carefully remove your cock ring from your penis. Using an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaning spray, you can clean it with a cloth as there is likely to be sweat and other bodily fluids to be removed. The anti-bacterial spray will get rid of all those nasty elements for you. Once it is cleaned and fully dried, you can store it away for the next time, if you’re looking for somewhere discreet to store it, this storage bag is perfect. Cock rings are usually durable so it’s likely you will have fun with it for a long time.
