How To: Choose A Cock Ring

So you’re curious about cock rings! Whether you’re interested in basic options or trying out something a little different or new, there are definitely a few things you need to know, and some considerations that need to be taken into account before you give them a try. Let’s slide right in (see what I did there?).

The most straightforward use of cock rings is the most simple: hugging the penis and testicles, they help create an erection that’s stronger and lasts longer than it would on it’s own. Since the basic function involves holding blood in the penis once engorged, it also means heightened sensitivity for many, while helping stave off ejaculation and keeping the erection going longer. Cock rings can also be fun for the person interacting with the penis that is wearing one: they can change the skin’s texture, which some find alters and enhances sensation.

Basic cock rings–and therefore the best for beginners–are made from a stretchy but firm material. Or they can be adjustable such as those with snaps or the kind that drawstring shut like a bolo tie. Though these devices can get much more complicated, simple is the best starting point for those interested in trying something new.

In terms of safety, there are a few basic principles. If you’re new to cock rings, you shouldn’t leave one on for more

than 45 minutes. Wearing a cock ring will assuredly alter the color of the penis wearing it, but keep an eye out for more extreme color changes. New sensations are normal, but if you feel pain, take it off and try again later. It’s best to try stretchy or adjustable cockrings if you’re new to them because they’re easiest to remove if you’re feeling uncomfortable. Hard rings made of metal or other firm materials can be difficult to remove if you’re not used to them.

Another popular option for beginners are vibrating cock rings, which come in a variety of forms, functions, and price points. These are popular because they can be used to stimulate the wearer or their partner depending on the shape of the toy and how it’s positioned. Though disposable, vibrating cock rings (usually one-time use), are common beginning points, similarly priced silicone options have started to become available on the market. What this means is that consumers can try something out that’s better quality and longer lasting at a similar price. These inexpensive, vibrating cock rings do have one major drawback, though: strength. If you determine that you like vibrating cock rings, it may well be worth investing in one of the many rechargeable, stronger options that will last much longer, are stronger, and do not require the frequent replacement of the watch batteries that most less expensive cock rings use.

Cock rings aren’t only for men, or heterosexual couples. Vibrating cock rings and some other cock ring styles can be used creatively, if you open your mind to it. One great use is in tandem with a strapon, while I’ve heard of others using them for hand or masturbatory sex. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

Additional relations of the cockring are many and varied. First, there are cock rings with an elongated teardrop shape that stimulate the perineum (the sensitive part between the testicles and anus) and provide the same constriction and erection benefits of a traditional cock ring. There are also those that incorporate anal play: the cock ring is attached to a plug, which creates new and interesting sensations. Ball stretchers are another option; some include a built-in cock ring for the erection benefits, while others are stand alone for those who like the sensation. Cock cages, which sometimes fully encase the penis for chastity purposes may seem counterintuitive to some looking to get off, but others find the denial of pleasure to be central to their experience of pleasure. For those who are really adventurous and up for a shock, there are even electrostim options.

Cock rings have a lot to offer; new pleasurable sensations, longer lasting erections, and more to explore if your curiosity is piqued.
