What Does a Cock Ring Do?

Wondering what does a cock ring do for your sex life? When you buy a cock ring, you’ll notice that it’s slightly smaller in width than what your penis is when it’s fully erect. This is on purpose because a cock ring is just tight enough to where it can safely restrict blood to your penis. Blood can get in, but has trouble getting out, ensuring a long-lasting erection.

What’s more, many users report that they can last longer when using a cock ring and their orgasms – men and women – are greatly intensified. This is especially true when a guy uses a cock ring with attachments made for women, but we’ll expand more on this below.

Benefits of Using Penis Rings?

They might not be the sexiest fashion accessory during foreplay and intercourse, but penis rings provide a number of benefits in the bedroom.

Long-Lasting Erections: Since the blood that rushes to the penis during arousal can’t leave as quickly because of the cock ring, you’ll be able to maintain a long-lasting and bigger erection. This is, without a doubt, the number one reason guys buy cock rings: so they can get it up and keep it up. Studies show that cock rings are an effective way to naturally treat erectile dysfunction.

Delays Orgasms: Another reason that guys like to use cock rings is because it helps them last longer during the act of intercourse. Since it can desensitize the penis a bit, cock rings can be a great tool for guys who suffer from premature ejaculation.

Intensifies Orgasms: Ironically, despite how penis rings can slightly desensitize the penis, they may also significantly increase the intensity of your orgasm. This is especially true if you’re using a cock ring with a vibrating feature.

Enhance Sex for Your Partner: Speaking of upgraded penis rings, there are several types of cock rings that offer additional pleasure to your partner. Rings with a vibration feature are immensely popular, but guys can also find rings that are textured, provide clitoral stimulation, or allow for double penetration. More of the different types of cock rings below.

Improve Overall Performance: Cock rings can make you a better lover overall. If you’re able to last longer in bed, maintain a harder erection, and provide extra stimulation, how is that not a benefit? You shouldn’t have to rely on cock rings every time, but using them consistently can boost your confidence in the bedroom.

Why Penis Rings Improve Erections?

Penis rings can improve the strength and duration of your erection by allowing blood to flow into the penis, but not letting it out as quickly.

Think of a long balloon: You put air into the balloon and then tie off the bottom to keep the air in. A cock ring isn’t a literal tie for your penis, but it does prevent the immediate escape of blood, and this has been shown to help guys with erectile dysfunction and performance anxiety.

How to Use a Cock Ring?

Ready to start using a cock ring? It’s essential that you learn how to wear a cock ring first. There are a few things you need to take care of before you give a penis ring its first run.

Keep Hair Short: Before you put on a cock ring, we highly recommend making sure that you’re keeping everything trimmed down there. If a cock ring has an attachment or your pubic hair is too long, it can get caught in the penis ring and you’ll yank the hair out. Not exactly something that will feel too good during or after sex.

Clean the Ring: You can’t be too sure what chemicals are on that new ring, so be sure to wash it with a gentle soap. Pat it dry or let it air dry. Avoid getting fuzzies from the towel on it.

Let Your Partner Know: Don’t surprise your partner with the cock ring. Some people aren’t as comfortable with toys in the bedroom, especially if they’ve never been introduced before. A friendly heads up can also increase the excitement and intrigue.

Now that we’ve covered the prep work, let’s dive into how to put on a cock ring:

Lube First: Do not attempt to slide on the cock ring without first making sure there is lubrication, otherwise, you risk brush burn when taking it off. You can lube the ring itself or your entire penis. The latter option will be better to jump into intercourse.

Test Run: Before you use the penis ring for what it’s intended for, make sure you have the right size and fit. You don’t want to buy one that is too small, get hard, then find it impossible to take off and wind up in the emergency room. Blood flow should NOT be completely cut off.

Use It: If everything feels good after your test run, make sure there’s still plenty of lube on the ring, then slide it on. Do this BEFORE you get completely hard otherwise, you won’t be able to put it on. Depending on the type of cock ring you bought, you’ll either slide it down the penis like a condom to the base, or you’ll stretch it out and put it on behind your testicles and over the base of your penis. Once it’s on, start the foreplay, and once you achieve an erection, you can get down to business.

Time Limit: While cock rings can be beneficial for your sex life, they should not be worn for more than 20 to 25 minutes. Studies show that if you wear a cock ring for too long, you can risk severely and permanently damaging your penis. A tell-tale sign that time is up is if you start to feel numbness or pain. If your penis turns colors such as blue or purple, get it off immediately.

Different Types of Cock Rings

There are many brands and types of cock rings available for purchase. Let’s take a look at the most common:

Standard: A basic ring that’s usually made from silicone or rubber. This is what most people start with.

Cock and Testicle Ring: This is the one you can extend over the base of the penis and your testicles. This is ideal for guys who use condoms because it won’t risk tearing it.

Metal Ring: This is for advanced users of cock rings as it involves extra steps to secure it and take it off. If you buy a metal cock ring, spring the extra cash because quality is everything and it can keep your penis safe.

Quick Release: An adjustable ring that is simple to tie up and release. It’s usually made from rubber or soft silicone material.

Vibrating Ring: Comes with a built-in vibrator that stimulates both the penis and the clitoris. The intensity of the vibration can usually be adjusted.

Teardrop Ring: Provides extra stimulation for your perineum, or what is more commonly called the taint.

Textured Ring: Usually has different patterns that provide extra stimulation for your partner, much like a textured condom would.

Rabbit / Dolphin Ring: The ears of the rabbit or fins of the dolphin stimulate the clitoris.

Double Penetration Ring: Provides an attachment for both vaginal and anal intercourse simultaneously.

Are Cock Rings Safe to Use?

Yes, cock rings are safe to use assuming the user understand two very important concepts:

The cock ring must not be too tight. This is why it’s important to measure the width of your penis (both flaccid and hard) so you know what type of ring to buy.

Also, do not leave the cock ring on your penis for longer than 20 to 25 minutes as this can cause permanent damage. Obviously, if you feel pain, remove the ring immediately.

Conclusion

Cock rings or penis rings are a natural way to improve your sex life by helping you achieve and maintain a long-lasting erection. Cock rings may also intensify orgasms, and they are a natural way to alleviate symptoms related to erectile dysfunction. Talk with your partner about preference such as attachments. For the first time you use one, take it easy and get used to the ring to make sure it’s right for you.
