Men’s Cock Ring Guide

You know that feeling when your lover is giving you head and she grabs firmly around the base of your cock behind your balls and suddenly everything is amplified? That’s what a cock ring feels like.

You know that feeling of pressure you get when the intensity of your erection is way beyond normal and all your senses are focused on how stiff you are and the weight in your balls as you thrust into your lover? That’s what a cock ring feels like.

Much like the name suggests, a cock ring is a ring of leather, denim, rubber, or metal that encircles the base of the penis and/or the scrotum. Its purpose, besides looking and feeling hot, is to keep the dick hard by preventing blood from flowing out of the engorged member. The penis gets its blood supply from arteries on the inside, and the erection ring restricts the returning blood from flowing through veins closer to the surface. Since veins are closer to the surface of the skin than arteries, the ring allows blood to flow to the penis while restricting its ability to flow outwards. As the internal pressure of the penis rises and the pleasurable feeling of firmness increases, the erection is prolonged and ejaculation is delayed. The penis also becomes less sensitive, enabling a man to better control when he experiences orgasm. The feeling of added weight is a bonus for the woman, as well – you can feel a heavier cock inside you, the erection seems harder, the penetration is more intense, and you get the feeling that the penetration is either deeper or not quite as deep – depending upon how your lover is wearing his rings.

Most cock rings are made of silicone or latex rubber, though some are made of metal, leather and other materials. They usually feature a variety of textures on the outer rim, and should be chosen carefully according to size and design. A loose ring will do nothing, while a too-tight ring cuts off all retreating blood flow; while a constantly hard penis might sound like fun, it can become painful and even dangerous after two or more hours. Some models feature adjustable sizes and snaps, allowing emergency removal.

Materials Guide

Rubber:

The most common variety is the rubber cock ring, which is shaped like an O-ring washer – like the ones used in your garden hose or kitchen faucet – but larger. One of the most popular models out there is the Ofinity Plus by Screaming O. The Ofinity Plus is a vibrating double erection ring featuring a unique isolating design that helps constrict blood flow to prevent premature ejaculation and promote stronger, harder erections.  The top ring is worn around the penis while the bottom ring stretches around the testicles, and the middle motor positions perfectly to buzz against the sensitive zone in between. The results are more intense orgasms and longer-lasting sex! There is The Clincher Cock ring, 91, that is an adjustable cock ring with a bead that slides up and down the rubber tubing that stretches to fit!

Metal:

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you not use a ring that is too small. To find the diameter of a snug-fitting ring, measure the distance around the cock and balls (at the base, behind the scrotum), and then divide by 3.1. Don’t go smaller than that. Metal rings are placed in position by pulling the scrotal skin through the ring and then inserting one testicle through the ring and then the second, and finally bend the flaccid penis down and pull it through. Your penis must be flaccid when putting on a metal ring. To take it off, simply reverse the steps, pushing the cock back through the ring first, followed by the balls and finally the scrotal skin. A favorite is Alchemy’s Metallics Seamless Wide Metal Medium Band that features a 1-3/4 inch wide, seamless, heavy duty, medium metal band.

Silicone:

Want something a little softer than metal? Just slide a stretchy silicone sleeve over the erect penis to add tons of tickling sensations during intercourse in any position imaginable. And because it’s made of such soft, flexible silicone, it fits him with complete comfort and will stay securely in place no matter how hot the action gets. What a real hot one?

The Pleasurepillar C-Ring is made of the highest-grade silicone on the market and features a removable bullet with push-button control and 10 intense functions for clitoral stimulation during sex!

Vibrating Rings:

These styles of rings are designed to stimulate both partners with vibrations. Most vibrating cock rings are made of a jelly type material. The vibrations come form a bullet that is inserted into the cock ring. Some styles have the vibrating bullet built in and cannot be removed. With the removable bullet style, you can put the bullet on the top to stimulate the woman’s clitoris or you can place the vibrating bullet at the bottom to stimulate the testicles. One that is getting rave reviews is the Xtreme Ring Of Xtasy Red Tongue. This comfortable vibrating cock ring is made out of a soft and super stretchable silicon that will feel so good as the powerful vibrator hums you away to ecstasy. Just slip this silicone stretchy vibrating cock ring over your lover’s penis and testicles and let it take your pleasures to all new heights. The small nubs on the front tickle the clitoris and give the extra clitoral stimulation women all love. It has a small watch battery inside it so it’s wireless, you don’t have any messy cords to get tangled in.

Leather:

Leather snap-on erection rings are placed around the base of the penis below the testicles and are adjustable in size, depending on the snap that is fastened. To use a cock ring of this nature is a lot safer than the seamless metal cock rings.

When using snap-on cock rings, the number of snaps will dictate the amount of adjustments. One to definitely check out is Leather Cinch Adjustable Cock Ring. The Leather Cinch is a fully adjustable one size fits all leather enhancer with patented quick release. Use the cinch to tighten and use the button snap for a quick release.
