Cock Rings - The Definitive Guide

The all encompassing guide to cock rings - Everything you need to know

If you like it then you should have put a ring on it! Cheesy I know, but it's true! Cock rings are awesome and there are a whole lot of benefits that many people don’t seem to know about… yet! Cock rings, also known as penis rings or erection rings are not just sex toys; they are also sexual aids that can help men with all sorts of sexual insecurities. For years now, C-Rings have also been used to achieve harder and thicker erections, especially in men who suffer from erectile dysfunction.  Think of these penis rings as the super food of the sex toy world! Here to increase your sexual performance and enhance your pleasure all at the same time.


How does a cock ring work?

Cock rings are a Male Enhancement Device or Sex Toys for Men that sits snugly around the base of an erect penis to trap blood inside the penile tissues to make an erection firmer, stronger and more engorged. Because cock rings make it harder for the blood to flow freely back out of the penis, they can also help to keep an erection for longer than you might have it without it. Using a cock ring around the penis shaft and the balls can also make your last longer before reaching orgasm as it makes it more difficult for the testicles to go up inside the body which is what happens when a man reaches orgasm.  

A recent study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine shows that 25% of men suffering from some form of erectile dysfunction are under the age of 40.  With the rise of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men of all ages, not just young, more of these men are turning to cock rings or erection enhancing rings  to help effectively improve their sex life.  If you suffer from ED, be sure to visit your doctor to ensure this is not a sign of a more serious health issue.


HOW DO you measure A COCK RING?


In order to find the perfect ring you will always want to measure it first.  The is especially important when you are buying a rigid cock ring or a ring with out any stretch.

There are 2 direct measurements that you need to understand in order to get the exact size.  There is the outside diameter (also known as OD) and the inside diameter (also known as the ID)

The more important measurement of the 2 is the ID (internal diameter) since that is the portion which your cock and balls will fit through.  To measure the ID you will just take a ruler or tape measure and measure directly across the open area inside the ring.  Since the ring is round, it does not matter if you measure horizontal or vertical.

To measure the OD (outside diameter) of the ring, you will again, take the tape measure or ruler and measure directly from edge to edge of the outside of the ring.

Using a ring that goes around the penis and the scrotum will slow down your ejaculation and let you go for a lot longer before you reach orgasm. You get to enjoy a longer play session and so does your partner!

What Cock Ring Styles Are there?


adjustable cock rings

Adjustable Cock Rings

This is the ideal cock ring style for beginners as it will adjust to fit you perfectly. It can be tricky to get the right size but an adjustable cock ring means you don’t need to worry and can simply tighten it to the point you are comfortable with and go for gold. There are styles that tighten with a lasso type of adjuster or those that use multiple clasp options like domes to stay in place. These are ideal not only for beginners but also men on the ends of the size spectrum. So if you are really large or really small, being able to adjust the cock ring will ensure you get the results you want from it.

Adjustable cock rings are really simple to get on and off as you will tighten it or do it up once it is already on the shaft of the penis. I do seriously recommend some grooming with this type of cock ring though as they tend to catch on pubic hair. Also, be careful not to accidentally catch any skin as that won’t be a good experience either

Stretchy Cock Rings

This is the most common cock ring style as they are generally pretty inexpensive and really easy to use. Stretchy cock rings or O rings are made from a variety of different materials from rubber to silicone with their key feature being that they are really stretchy and can accommodate almost all penis sizes. These rings will stretch over your erect penis to sit comfortably at the base of the penis, or they can be stretched around the scrotum too to double as a cock and ball ring and get all those extra benefits.

Vibrating Cock Rings

Vibrating Cock Rings

A vibrating cock ring is simply any style cock ring that also has a vibrating feature. Pretty easy to figure that one out right? Vibrating cock rings are super popular as they offer all the benefits of a classic cock ring while also adding in some awesome vibration too.

There are all sorts of different styles of this type of penis ring. Some will have a single vibrator while others will have two; one at the top and one at the bottom for even more stimulation. Some will have just a single speed, while others will have multiple vibration options. And, some will even include a removable bullet vibrator that can be removed and used without the ring.

And don’t think that vibrating cock rings are for his and her couples only. While they can work amazingly to stimulate the clitoris if your partner is a female, you can also flip the ring around underneath your scrotum to stimulate yourself if you are using it alone or with another man.

Rigid Cock Rings

Rigid cock rings are made from materials that do not have any stretch at all. Stainless steel and metal are the most common materials but any material that is hard and non-pliable fits into this category. These rings are worn around the penis and the scrotum and require a completely flaccid penis to get it on. While these cock rings may look super cool, they are for advanced users only who have been around the cock ring block a time or two already. As there is no stretch they are difficult to get on and even more so to remove. So, if you are new to cock rings, start with one of the other styles and work your way up to these ones.

Rigid Cock Rings
Cock and ball rings

Cock and Ball Rings

These are cock rings that will have two individual rings which are connected at together at one point. One ring goes around the base of the penis and the other ring goes around the testicles. These rings are usually very stretchy to fit comfortably but some styles will actually use a ball stretcher style meaning the second ring is firmer and thicker than the first and designed to keep your balls securely away from the rest of your body. Cock and ball rings are the ideal option if you want to last longer before reaching orgasm as well as maintaining a rock hard erection .


How Do I get a cock ring on?

First things first, you need to know if you are going to wear the ring on the penis shaft only, or if it is going to go around the penis and the balls. Which one you go for will determine how you put it on.

•    On the shaft only

Cock rings that go on the shaft only tend to be fairly stretchy so you want to put them on when your penis is already erect or at least semi-erect. To do this, stretch the ring out so that the O shape is as wide as possible then pop your penis through the hole and slowly bring the rind down to the base of the shaft. Then, gently release the ring onto your penis. And I really can not emphasize the gently part enough. Stretchy cock rings are basically just thick rubber bands and if you let it go too fast, it is going to seriously sting. The rule is to treat your delicate parts delicately.

•    Adjustable cock rings

The same thing goes for an adjustable penis ring too. If it is a lasso style, then loosen it as far as it will go and lower it down to the base of your erect penis. You can then tighten it to the firmness that you like. If it uses clasps, then you can wrap it around your erect penis and do it up at the point you like. Just be careful not to snap any skin!

•    Around the shaft and the balls

Let’s just start by saying straight of the bat that this style of cock ring is going to be more difficult to get on. Not only do you need to get the ring around your penis, but you need to get your balls through too. But just be patient and you will get used to it. I promise!

To start with, make sure that you are warm, so if it's cold out, jump in the shower first to get your body temperature up. If its too cold, your balls are going to try to hide away up inside your body making getting a cock ring on a near impossible task. You also want to have a flaccid penis while you do this so that it is soft and easy to maneuver. Then, stretch the ring out as wide as you can and gently ease one ball through at a time, then you need to pull your penis through the ring too. The idea is to have the ring sitting as flat against your body as possible.

Keep in mind that with this type of ring you will also likely need to become completely flaccid again following play to remove it. So just relax and let your body soften so you can get it off again easily.


Extra tips to make putting on a cock ring even easier!

Don’t be put off by the instructions above. All it takes is a bit of practice and you will find getting a cock ring on and off easy peasy. And there are a few tips that can really help the process too 

•    Use some lube

Lubrication (lube) isn’t an essential item when it comes to using a cock ring but it will make it feel better for you and your partner and it will definitely make it easier to get the cock ring on and off in the first place. We recommend using water based lube around the inside of the ring to slide it on and then adding some more when you want to remove it too.

•    Get trimming

It will also help if you do some grooming down there too. Sorry guys but hairs can get tugged and it is going to hurt if they do. Keeping things nice and trimmed will mean that there is less chance of any hairs being pulled out.

What materials are there to choose from?

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 - Also known as Thermoplastic Elastomer or Thermoplastic Rubber is another common material for sex toys.  TPE and TPR are going to be the most affordable material.  Typically you will see disposable cock 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 - Metal cock rings typically are made from chrome plated steel or stainless steel.  This is an advanced material not recommended for beginners.  This is due to the rigidity of the material. It is very easy to get stuck in a metal ring but once you go soft, you should be able to slip out.  Metal cock rings are great for temperature play to give the user further sensations.  Metal rings will be a bit more expensive than your standard soft cock rings.  These are also extremely easy to wash and disinfect.  Metal erection rings will also be waterproof but be sure to dry well in case yours is not stainless steel.
  • Wood - Yes, there are cock rings made from a treated wood. These are very similar in style, cost, and user friendliness as steel cock rings.  Not recommended for beginner users.
  • Leather - Leather cock rings are a great ring for all users. Typically leather rings 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.  The cost of leather cock rings will be on the more expensive side but users will tell you it will be worth it.  Keep in mind that leather is not waterproof so you will not want to wear in water.
  • Other - This last bucket is for the less common materials such as ceramic, horn, glass, and neoprene cock rings.

Can I use a cock ring with a condom?

Yes, you can use a cock ring with a condom but you will need to be careful not to tear the delicate condom material. A good idea is to use a condom that goes around both the shaft and the balls as this will have the least interference with the condom. If you are going for an option that is worn over the penis shaft only then make sure you use some lube on the ring to prevent tearing the condom. And avoid rings that fasteners or metal bits as these are the ones most likely to tear.

Will cock rings help me with penis pumping?

Yes, it definitely can. For men that use penis pumps to create an erection prior to sexual activities, using a cock ring right after pumping can help to maintain that erection for longer. Just ensure that you use a cock ring which you can comfortably get on with a completely erect penis as you need to put it on after you pump.

How do I pick the right size penis ring?

A cock ring should be slightly smaller than the diameter of your erect penis. The idea is that it will be firm enough to restrict the blood flow back out of your penis without causing your pain or discomfort.

If you want to get an exact measurement then you will want to measure the diameter of your erect penis, as cock rings are measured by their diameter too. Try to measure as close to your body as possible as this is the location where the ring will sit. To get your penis diameter you need to measure the circumference of your penis, then divide that by 3.14 (Pi for the math wizards). If you have a cock and ball ring, then measure the circumference of the whole distance around your penis and balls, as close to the body as possible, then divide that by 3.14.

If you are still unsure, its always recommended to error on the size of larger to make sure you do not damage the penis tissue with a ring too small.  There are many penis ring sets on the market that include several size rings to ensure you get the perfect fit.


Cock ring safety!

•    Listen to your body

As well as feelings of discomfort or pain, there may also be visual cues if a penis ring is too small for you. Look out for signs of redness or purple discoloration as well as swelling of the penis. With a ring on your penis may look engorged but it should not look swollen. These are all signs that the ring is too tight and needs to be removed.

•    Stick to the recommended time

You should be using your cock ring for 30 minutes at a time at the most. This will prevent skin or nerve damage. If you want to wear the ring for longer than you can take breaks. Remove the ring and let your cock breathe and stretch! Then, you can pop it back on and go another 20 minutes or so.

     Keep it clean

A cock ring is just like any other sex toy and it needs to be cleaned before and after each use. If you leave it without cleaning, then it may harbor bacteria and result in an infection. Follow the specific cleaning instructions of your ring to make sure you are looking after it properly. And don’t worry, most rings will be fine when cleaned with warm water and soap, but always check your instructions just in case. 

•    Avoid cock rings if…

You have a blood clotting disorder, peripheral vascular disease, a nerve disease, or if you are taking blood thinning medication.

While it sounds like there is a lot to know, using a cock ring is actually a pretty straightforward activity and one that has a lot of benefits! Just keep these tips in mind and you will be having a ball in no time.
