What is a Cock Ring and What are Cock Rings Used for?

If you're even slightly curious about the idea of using a cock ring, you're not alone. Cock rings are one of the most popular sex toys and performance accessories in the world - and since they're cost effective, easy to use, and produce fantastic results - it's easy to see why.

 

Here, we'll explore what cocks rings are, why people wear a cock ring, and some important dos and don'ts if you're considering a purchase.

 

What is a cock ring?

A cock ring is a band or ring that's worn around the base of the penis. Wearing a cock ring is usually about keeping or enhancing an erection - adding to your sex life, whether you're playing with a partner or playing alone.

A cock ring works by restricting blood flow. When you get an erection, blood usually rushes from other parts of the body into the penis. When it does, the veins and vessels in the penis expand - making the tissue bigger and harder. A cock ring squeezes your cock - keeping that blood where it's needed.

 

Since 'bigger' and 'harder' is usually the name of the game when it comes to sex, a cock ring's a must for millions of guys - especially when age or the strains of day-to-day life take their toll. Here's the thing - erectile dysfunction is something that affects around 52% of men at some time during their life, so the majority of men could benefit from a cock ring.

 

There are countless different types of cock rings - but at their most basic, a cock ring is usually a firm silicone ring that sits snugly around your penis.

We've talked a bit about penis rings for erectile dysfunction - but in truth, that's only half the story. Although cock rings are often recommended by doctors and medically reviewed, they're also considered to be a sex toy - so there are plenty of different experiences to be had.

 

A cock ring can help you last longer

Experiences differ for everyone - but cock ring wearers often say that the tight sensation around the base of the cock helps them to last longer in bed.

 

Cock rings get your harder

Since cock rings are designed to keep the blood in your penis, lots of people find they feel bigger and harder when they use one. Again, whether or not you actually add any extra girth will depend on you individually - even the thought of bigger and harder erections will often help add to your sex life.

 

A penis ring gives different sensations

As your cock gets harder, it also becomes more sensitive - so, since the best cock rings keep the blood where it's needed, you'll often also find that the sensations of intercourse or masturbation change. Different types and sizes of penis rings will offer different sensations - so don't be afraid to mix things up a bit.

 

Cock rings can add more pleasure

There really is a cock ring out there for every man. Whether you're looking for something that's going to vibrate and add a whole new level of sensation for you and your partner - or something that'll constrict your penis and testicles (usually called 'c rings'), there's the next level of pleasure available for every taste.

 

Penis rings can help with anal sex

Anal penetration is often more of a challenge than vaginal sex - simply because the anus is a much tighter ring of muscle. As well as using plenty of lube, wearing a cock ring to get a firmer erection will often be a big help if you're trying anal, as it'll make it easier to initially slide into your partner.

 

You can use a cock ring with a penis pump

When used with a penis pump, a cock ring really be life-changing if you struggle to get or keep an erection.

We've talked more about it in our guide to penis pumps - but the quick version is this: A penis pump is an easy-to-use device that encourages extra blood to flow into your genitals. Some common health conditions will stop the blood staying in your cock - so, when you've pumped, a cock ring (sometimes referred to as a 'constriction ring') can be slipped into place to prevent the blood from leaving.

 

Some dos and don'ts when you use a cock ring

As you can see, there are numerous reasons you might want to use a cock ring - but since they're going to squeeze your prize asset quite tightly, there are a few minor precautions to take.

 

Do These When Using a Ring

Firstly, it's a good idea to use plenty of lube to get the penis ring you're using on. It's not essential - but it'll usually make for a more comfortable experience.

If you're just starting out with cock rings, a silicone ring is a good place to start. Silicone has a little more flexibility than some other materials - so you usually won't have a tough time finding a size that's comfortable.

 

Also, getting things just right with a cock ring is different for everything. In the event you feel any numbness, coldness, discomfort, pain, or severe swelling - take the penis ring off. It might take a few attempts to get it just right, but it'll be worth persevering with.

 

Don't Do These When Using a Ring

Cock rings probably aren't for you if you want a device that's going to keep your cock looking larger all the time. They'll do the job during foreplay and intercourse - but it's not a good idea to leave one on for more than 30 minutes. If you have a habit of falling asleep after sex or masturbation - set yourself a timer so you remember to take it off!

medications 

Cock rings should be used with caution if you have certain medical conditions too. It's a good idea to talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about the products you're considering if you:

 

  • take blood-thinning medication
  • have cardiovascular disease
  • have any type of nerve or blood disease
  • take any medication that affects your awareness or attention
  • have any kind of existing injury to your penis, scrotum, or testicles.
  • have any soreness in the groin or genital area
  • have diabetes
