How many different types of cock rings actually exist? That is a somewhat loaded question. There are hundreds, possibly thousands of cock ring designs on the market. With that being said, most, if not all of them tend to fall into one of the six most common types of penis rings.

Cock rings happen to be one of the most popular sex accessories in the world, and for good reason. Wearing one of these penis rings is a quick and easy way of limiting blood flow out of your penis for more size, better orgasms, more endurance, and generally better sex. Studies show that a penis ring can improve sexual performance and reduce performance anxiety.

Most common types of cock rings

Stretchy constriction ring

The most common type of cock ring, typically made from a stretchy material such as silicone or rubber. These are were originally designed to be used with a penis pump for erectile dysfunction.

Vibrating cock ring

These types of rings feature a vibrating function that is designed to provide even more stimulation to both the wearer and their partner.  Typically the vibrator is used as a clitoral stimulator

Adjustable cock ring

Available in different sizes and shapes, these rings have an adjustment feature that allows for the perfect fit. These are great for first-time buyers who don't quite know what size they need.

Rigid cock ring

Typically similar in shape to the standard constriction ring however these are made with hard and rigid materials. The most common materials are stainless steel, iron, and hard plastic. These are designed for advanced users only.

Cock and ball ring

These are also known as dual cock rings because they feature 2 rings rather than one. The second ring typically goes around the balls and provides additional support.

Cock rings with attached accessories

Cock rings that feature accessories as a form of attachment. The most common types are anal toys and double penetration dildos.

Stretchy constriction rings

Stretchy rings are the most popular kind on the market. They're cost-effective, easy-to-use, and they don't look at all intimidating. 

A stretchy cock ring is almost always made from soft silicone or similar materials and they are usually non-vibrating. While these come in many shapes, the most common is round like an O-ring.  These are also the preferred type to use with a penis pump.

For those who struggle with erections, stretchy silicone rings are commonly recommended by doctors to treat erectile dysfunction.

Vibrating cock rings

Don't let anyone tell you that a cock ring is all about you. Sure, it might keep you hard and help you show off a bit of extra size - but there are plenty of penis rings that are packed full of partner-pleasing features. If your partner has a vulva, a vibrating ring is a very effective way of turning your cock into a 'clitoral stimulator' style vibrator.

The cock ring sits around the base of the penis and has a small vibrator attached - designed to stimulate the woman's clitoris.

Perhaps the most partner-focused style of penis ring is the vibrating cock ring.

Of course, vibrating cock rings aren't just designed with vaginas in mind. The vibrating sensation feels great sitting against any area of a partner's body.  You can turn the vibrator around and have it stimulate your balls as well.

Adjustable cock rings

Are you new to toys or if the idea of stretching a cock ring to fit around your penis and/or balls doesn't sound comfortable - an adjustable ring could be just what you're looking for.

Adjustable rings often look like a lasso - with an adjustable locker that slides to create a tighter ring.

Adjustable Cock rings are ideal if you're a little nervous about the idea of constriction rings - as you can just undo and slide off in seconds.

Cock rings are usually designed with the 'average' penis size in mind - but if you're bigger or smaller than average, then an adjustable ring can be really helpful. 

Although a silicone band with an adjuster is the most popular kind of adjustable cock ring design, it's not the only option. Some feature Velcro or snap fastenings - so you can choose the kind that feels right for you.

Rigid (solid) cock rings

A rigid cock ring is a great solution for those with lots of experience and really know their body. They are not intended to be used by beginners - simply because buying one that's exactly right for you takes a bit of cock ring knowledge, as well as some experience to help you decide on your taste in rings.

It is very easy to get stuck in a solid cock ring and have your penis swell so as mentioned, these are considered advanced for experts only.

Since a solid ring is usually a polished steel ring, there's no stretch to allow for different size penises. A metal ring can be sized to sit around the base of your penis - or larger to allow both the penis and the testicles to be squeezed.

Metal rings are generally made from surgical-grade steel or aluminum - so, like silicone, they're hypoallergenic; no worry about allergic reactions or metal discoloring your skin.

Cock and ball rings

A cock and ball ring is designed to fit around the penis and the scrotum - enhancing blood flow and sensations in the whole area.

Cock and ball rings come in different shapes and sizes - some are a single ring, some are two - and some even combine three rings.

A single ring cock and ball toy sits over the top of your erect penis and around your scrotum. A double ring toy has a loop for your cock and a separate loop for your balls - and a triple-ring toy squeezes the whole area - and has additional loops to put pressure on your shaft and balls separately.

Cock rings with attached accessories

As mentioned several times, penis rings come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and features. When that is not enough though, you can enjoy one that has added sex toys to take things to the next level.

These types of penis rings are typically made from a soft, stretchy, and pliable material such as silicone or rubber.

We will cover the different types below but the most common types of sex toys attached to these penis rings are prostate massagers, butt plugs, and dildos. With the added accessories, both you and your partner are sure to experience sexual bliss and ecstasy.

But wait...there's more

Textured cock rings

Textured cock rings aren't always seen as a category in their own right - as they're often a silicone, plastic, or metal sex toy, but with some beading or wavy ridges to enhance pleasure when they're in place.

The texture you choose can be as subtle or stand out as you wish - it might just take a bit of experimenting to find your exact sweet spot.

Some textured rings are made entirely of beads - so they'll add spine-tingling sensation for your partner - or, with the help of some lube, they can double up as a masturbator that can slide up and down your shaft.

Ball stretchers and ball spreaders

Now, a ball stretcher isn't strictly a cock ring - but since some are designed to fit both the cock and balls, they definitely deserve a mention here.

ball stretcher is a ring that fits over your scrotum - slightly pulling your balls away from the shaft of your penis. Sometimes, the length of these sex toys alone stretches your balls - but sometimes, a cock ring sits around your penis, and an additional ring or sleeve loops around your scrotum.

Remote-controlled and Bluetooth cock rings

A remote-controlled cock ring is usually a vibrating ring that can be controlled without trying to push buttons or twist controls on the actual toy itself. The part the vibrates depends on the toy - but it will usually be a stimulator that sits against your partner's clitoris or against your perineum.

If you're ready to take things to a truly 21st Century level, why not explore a Bluetooth cock ring that can be used with an app?

A remote toy can save a lot of fumbling - especially when there's a lot of lube involved! A short-range remote is just the beginning though. 

Many companies produce app-connected toys that can be used wherever you or your partner are in the world - as long as the connected smartphone app has an internet connection. Whether you're both in bed and playing with the app - or on different sides of the globe, remote toys can connect you like never before!

Double penetration cock rings

The idea of double-penetration is one that lots of couples would love to explore - but inviting someone else into your bedroom might feel like jumping in at the deep end!

double penetration cock ring is the perfect solution - you get to double up your penetration power while also adding extra size and sensation to your own penis.

A double penetration ring is usually made of soft material and sits around the base of your cock like usual. However, the design adds a dildo - which will mean you can penetrate your partner in different ways at the same time.

Butt plug cock rings

Your prostate and your butt have almost as many sensitive nerve-endings as your penis, so if it's an area you haven't already explored as part of your sex play, you might be missing out on a pleasant sensation!

Butt plug cock rings sit around the base of your penis - but they also have a section that is designed to sit inside you and massage your prostate. The result? More intense orgasms and - according to many butt plug cock ring users - lots more cum.

Common Materials

Erection rings come in many different materials.  Technically speaking, you can actually make rings from any material if you are determined enough!  With that being said, there is some what of a standard in the penis ring industry of which materials are acceptable for use.  When determining the material you are going to get, there are things to think about such as how you are going to use them, what results you are looking to achieve, as well as cost.  We have outlined the most common ones below.

Silicone This is the most common of all materials due to the mix of safety, affordability, and usability. Silicone is very soft and extremely stretchy so it can accommodate most sized penises. It is also non-porous and easy to clean to avoid any bacteria or other particles which are not safe. Silicone is waterproof which is an additional benefit for those looking for love in the water.
TPE/TPR TPE and TPR are going to be the most affordable material. Typically you will see disposable rings made of this material. This material is porous so it can keep bacteria trapped in if its not cleaned well. As with silicone, TPE/TPR is very stretchy so most penis sizes will be just fine.
Metal Typically made from chrome plated steel or stainless steel, this is an advanced material not recommended for beginners.  Metal rings are also extremely easy to wash and disinfect. They are usually waterproof but be sure to dry well in case yours is not stainless steel.
Wood  While much less common, you can find penis rings made from treated wood.  These fall in to the rigid non-adjustable category.
Leather Typically ones made from leather will have some sort of way to adjust such as snaps or buttons. Leather is very comfortable and easy to wear for extended periods of time.
Other This last bucket is for the less common materials such as ceramic, horn (from an animal), glass, and neoprene (like a wet suit).

Finding and using your perfect cock ring

There is no perfect cock ring, in fact, finding and using different ones is part of the fun. Consider if you are looking to please your partner, delay orgasm, or stay hard for longer.

As you get more experience with them you can continue experimenting and taking things to the next level with your partner. Even if you are not going to be using it with your partner, a penis ring will certainly improve pleasure during masturbation.

  • Best Cock Rings

Before using one though, it is recommended to trim or shave your pubic hair. They are designed to fit snuggly so even a small amount of pubic hair might get snagged and ripped out.

It should go without saying but we are going to say it anyway. Before you use a cock ring you will want to apply a good water-based lubricant. Using one will help with sliding it on and off and overall comfort during sex.  Lube also helps you use a cock ring safely.
