What are Cock Rings and How to Use Them

These sexy toys are small and (often, but not always) stretchy cock sized rings that go around the base of your penis – or sometimes go around your whole package. These fun little rings come in a variety of styles, colors, textures, and can have multiple purposes and attachments for even more fun! Ready to learn what a cock ring can do and how to wear a cock ring? Read on!

What Does a Cock Ring Do?

Now, you’re wondering why you might want a cock ring, or maybe what a cock ring can do for you. That’s perfect, because you’re about to discover all of the awesome details.

You can use cock rings for a few different reasons, but generally the idea behind the toy is to help you maintain your erection and to slow down that sometimes ‘too-fast’ race to the orgasmic edge. If you’re one of the many that have issues getting your penis to perform at the peak levels you really want – a cock ring can be the perfect sex toy addition. If you don’t have any pesky penile issues, don’t worry, you can still use a cock ring just for good old fashioned fun!

Alright, so to understand why cock rings can be useful and pleasurable, you need to remember how the erection works. Basically, after male sexual arousal has begun, the penis begins to harden as your blood flow is directed to the ‘other’ head between your legs. What a cock ring does to help you keep the blood flow exactly where you want it – is accomplished by the cock ring putting a bit of pressure on the tissue and vessels to prevent the blood from flowing back out into the rest of your body. Don’t worry, the blood still has a pretty easy time getting to the penis when you use your cock ring the right way.This means you’ll get a harder erection that lasts longer.

In addition to the already pleasurable benefits of wearing a cock ring, a cock ring can even increase the intensity of your orgasm. This nifty trick happens thanks to the build-up of that blood flow to your package – this accumulation increases the blood pressure in your penis – which can mean increased sensitivity in every quivering nerve of your throbbing member. And since you’re snug as a bug in your cock ring, you can last longer while enjoying every single one of those scintillating sensations. Ready to find out how to get your cock ring on?

 

How to Wear a Cock Ring

Now that you’re interested in trying a cock ring out, you’ve got to figure out how to put on a cock ring the RIGHT way. This will sort of vary, depending on the exact style of the cock ring you invest in, but there are a few general guidelines to follow when figuring out how to wear your cock ring.

Sizing

This is very important, because you do not want a cock ring that is too small and thus too tight for your package. (That’s a big, dangerous NO zone – damaged nerves and probably the introduction of cutting tools to remove the toy at some point – you just don’t want to go the extra small route with this toy. This especially applies to those who are more interested in the hard, non-stretchy style cock rings.) You also don’t want one that is too big, otherwise it won’t be able to give you the pressure that you need to get the full effect from your cock ring. You will want to look for a stretchy, elastic style cock ring to start out with. Consider purchasing a set of three (often available as a starter cock ring set) in different sizes so that you can experiment and find the size that works best for you and your personal preferences.

Getting It On (Your Cock Ring, That Is!)

Thankfully, getting your cock ring on and actually wearing the cock ring are pretty easy once you have figured out what style of cock ring you want to go with. The best way to figure out how to wear a cock ring is to know the different styles.

  • Soft and Stretchy Cock Rings – These rings are easily stretched out to accommodate a partial woody, or even your half-way hard-on and your scrotum. So long as you’re not totally limp or totally hard (unless using a penis pump) – you’ll be set to easily slide your cock ring on and get right into the action!
  • Rigid and Firm Cock Rings – This particular style takes a bit more time to find a perfect fit as these are placed over the package before your erection starts swelling with excitement. Rather than starting out tight and stretching out to give just enough blood flow to your bits, your erection and overall genital engorgement will fill this kind of cock ring just past brimming to work its magic. You’ll need tailor’s measuring tape and a bit of math skills to ensure that you aren’t sizing things too small. Rigid rings will not be easy to remove if they are too tight – so consider yourself warned and remember to do your research with this particular style. (Measure twice, cut never – at least in the rigid cock ring department of life.)
  • Cock and Ball Rings – If you want to step things up a notch, you can opt for a cock and ball ring style of cock ring. These give a nice grip around the whole package. To get this style of rigid ring on, you’ll typically slip the balls in first, followed by your penis. If it’s a soft and stretchy ring or an adjustable ring, it’s more about finding the right size, right amount of pressure and proper placement. (Be careful with snaps and slip-style loops – they can pinch!)

 

How to Use a Cock Ring

Okay, so now you know how cock rings work, why you want one, and the basic idea of how to put a cock ring on. Keep reading to discover the variety of cock rings available and how to play safely with a cock ring once you’ve got it in your bag of toys.

 

Safety Tips and Tricks

  • Keep plenty of lubrication handy! It will help make your cock ring slide right into place and will make it easier to remove the ring when you’re finished playing and ready for a break.
  • Never wear a cock ring for longer than 30-45 minutes. While it is extremely fun to play around with your newly extra engorged member, making it stay that swollen for too long will cause damage and decrease sensitivity and functionality for all future play.
  • If your penis or scrotum begin to change colors (blue, purple, bright red) or if you feel burning, numbness, or cold sensations – IMMEDIATELY remove the cock ring completely.
  • If you have swollen past the point where you are able to remove the cock ring yourself – get to the ER ASAP. The longer you cut off blood flow at this intensity, the more serious the damage will be to your goods. (Size safely!)

Stand-alone Cock Rings

            If you’re just looking to intensify your erections and enjoy better orgasms, the basic cock ring will be the pick for you! These come in soft and stretchy or firm and rigid styles, as well as adjustable variations. Stretchies are easily stretched around the desired area of impact and allowed to hang out right at the very base of everything. Let yourself get about halfway hard first for the best impact (or play around to find out what is more fun for you). Rigid rings are placed while you are flaccid before you begin the fun, just slide it down your stick and settle it in place at the base. For cock and ball rigid rings, be sure to slip the scrote into the ring first and then flexing your soft self through the ring before allowing yourself to get aroused.

Penis Pump & Cock Ring Combo

            If you’re looking for a stronger solution for your sexy-time needs or desires, another popular use for a cock ring is as part of a penis pump and cock ring combination. The cock ring is placed at the open end of the pump, where it sits snugly against your body and gives a seal for the vacuum of the pump to work with. You will then begin using the pump until you gain the erection of your desire (within safe and sane limits) and before removing the pump, you will slide the cock ring down around the base of your shaft to keep that big, beautiful erection exactly the way you want it.
