Cock Ring 101

Who doesn't want prolonged erections and intensified orgasms?

Cock Rings are the Sex Toy God's gift to humans.  Despite such an amazing gift by the generous sex gods there is much apprehension to cock rings.  Whether you are content with your sex life already and do not feel the need for an addition or simply uneasy about the idea of a ring around your penis, the truth is, there is really no down side to cock rings and they can only improve sex and sensation.  Not only do they help achieve and maintain harder erections,but they intensify orgasms and ejaculations.     

A cock ring is a ring made from silicone, metal, or rubber that is placed at the base of the penis to restrict blood flow in penile tissue.  The restriction of blood flow leaving the penis will result in harder and longer lasting erections as well as increased orgasms.  C-Rings may be placed around the shaft of the penis or around both the shaft and the testicles. Placing a ring around the penis and the testicles results in a greater degree of stimulation and erection.  

To use, it is important that the penis be flaccid or semi-erect. Place a small amount of lubricant around the inside of the ring and place on body. If a simple C-Ring you can place around the penis and slide down to the base of the shaft. If the ring is meant for cock and ball then you must carefully place one testicle through the ring followed by the second. After the testicles are comfortably inside the ring slide the penis through. The cock ring should have a firm grip around the area, yet still be comfortable enough so it does not constrict all blood flow entirely. 

Depending on desired sensation and look there exist many different styles of C-Rings.  For beginners it is ideal to start with adjustable cock rings like the Lasso Ring.  Adjustable rings allow the user to experience a wide variety of constriction around the genitals while having the ability the remove the ring quickly if sensation becomes too intense or uncomfortable. Tantus does make beginner cock rings that have superb stretch and are made from smooth silicone to ensure the utmost of comfort.   Non-adjustable rings, while some have a wide range of stretch, tend to be more firm and have little to no flexibility.  While beginners are certainly welcome to try these, Non-adjustable rings, usually worn behind testicles, tend to be for more advanced users with previous C-Ring experience.  Non-adjustable rings come in various materials including metal, stainless steel, glass, and silicone. 

C-Rings can be textured, vibrate, have cock and ball dividers, and even include anal sensation. Vibrating cockrings are designed to please both partners during intercourse.  One of my favorite vibrating cock rings is the Lelo Pino. With its unique design, high vibrations, and rechargeable feature, the Pino is perfect for clitoral and penile stimulation. The cock ring vibrates on the penis while flicking and vibrating against the clitoris with every thrust. No clitoris?  No problem.  The ring can be used to stimulate any type of partner as well as be turned upside down to provide scrotum stimulation for the wearer. A more budget friendly vibrating cock ring would be the Ohhh Bunny Frisky Bunny with delightfully stimulating bunny ears. Rechargeable as well, this Frisky Bunny is sure to please both partners with its five vibrating modes and speeds. Anal orgasms are exceptionally arousing and when you add a C-Ring you are sure to have the orgasm of your life.  With the Anal Fantasy Ass-Gasm Cock Ring Plugthe ring fits snugly around the penis and testicles while the plug is inserted anally to prolong ejaculation and enjoy prostate stimulation simultaneously.  

Safety is always important when using sex toys, so make sure your ring is appropriately sized.  If it is too small you run the risk of cutting off circulation and inability of removing the ring after sexual activity, and no one wants to end up on "Sex Sent Me to the ER" for cock ring issues.  To measure for the appropriate cock ring size, wrap a measuring tape around the base of the erect penis (for C&B measure around penis and testicles) to establish circumference.  Divide that number by 3.14 for diameter.  And I know we like to never admit our size, but in this case honesty is the best policy. To prevent any bodily damage be sure to wear your C-Ring for no more than 20-30 minutes at a time.  Last but not least, clean your toy before and after each use.
