Cock Ring – Does it Really Work?

If you've never used sex toys with your partner, a cock ring is a great first toy.

It can add vibration and help you to stay harder for longer. Not all cock rings are made the same, however.

What Does a Cock Ring Do

Cock rings have several benefits, including:

  • Stimulating your partner's clitoris
  • Helping you get harder
  • Enabling you to stay hard longer/prolong erection
  • Making you (feel) bigger

Cock rings might help men experiencing problems with erection, or you could just use one for the added benefits of clitoral stimulation.

How Does a Cock Ring Work  - ​Cock ring stops the blood flow, thus accumulates blood inside an erect penis. This helps maintain an erection and to get stronger orgasm.

Cock Ring Materials

Cock rings are made from a variety of stretch materials – PVC, TPR and silicone being the most popular – as well as rigid materials such as stainless steel, glass or even stone. The hard materials are heavier and are generally not recommended for novice use. Stretchy materials may have different amounts of stretch.

Stretchy cock rings fit a wider variety of penises and are more affordable. They're great when you're discovering if you even like cock rings and which one fits the best. However, they may collect lint or even tug on pubic hair.

Cheaper PVC rings can break if you stretch them too long.

Once you're sure of the fit, you can move on to a rigid material. However, if you choose a glass or metal cock ring that's too tight, it can cut off circulation while one that's too loose won't be effective and may even fall off.

Another material option is leather, which feels slick, adds to the kink factor and is often adjustable via snaps.

Styles of Cock Ring

You might be surprised at how many styles of cock ring are available.

Single, stretchy: A single ring made of stretchy material. Can be worn around penis or cock and balls.

Adjustable: Snaps enable you to make it tighter or looser for your perfect fit. It also comes off easily.

Double: A smaller ring is worn around your penis while the larger goes around your scrotum. Cock slings are a bulkier version with this and further separate your cock and balls.

Triple: A triple ring places your shaft through two rings and your balls through a third ring.

Tear drop: Has a small attachment to stimulate your partner during sex.

Vibrating: Has one (or two) small vibrators attached to the ring.

Spreader :  Is attached both around the scrotum and the shaft with a strap that sits behind your testicles to spread them.

When shopping for cock rings, you'll also see those with butt plugs attached, cock rings with multiple rings (known as cages) and torture rings with inner needles

How to Use a Cock Ring

Shaving before you wear your cock ring can help prevent hairs from being tugged.

Cock rings should be put on when you're semi-hard. This enables you to keep it on. You'll want to be softer with a cock ring made from a rigid material.

As you get harder, a cock ring will help to constrict blood flow. We definitely recommend using compatible lubricant when putting on your cock ring.

There are two lines of thinking when it comes to how to wear a cock ring. Some people find it more comfortable worn just around the shaft of the penis. However, others believe it's more effective at prolonging orgasm to wear it around the cock and balls.

When wearing it this way, slip each testicle into the ring. Once both balls are inside the ring, bent your semi-soft penis to slip it through the ring.

It's often easier to wear a cock ring just around the shaft, but you may need to look for one that's smaller or one that's adjustable, which will allow you to wear it however you'd like based on your current mood.

No matter how you wear it, you'll want to position a clitoral vibrator/attachment or anal attachment correctly. When wearing a vibrating cock ring with a partner, the vibrating motor should be above your penis during missionary sex, but you'll wear it the other way around during doggie style and similar positions from behind.

You can also turn a cock ring around to stimulate your perineum when you're using it solo. A few cock rings have two bullets, so both of you can experience pleasure.

Vibrating Cock Rings

Cock rings can be pleasurable, but you might find them less useful for clitoral stimulation than you'd think. The vibrations might be too weak or buzzy, and many cock rings can only be used once (this is ideal if you just want to try them out, however). Those with multiple settings will be more useful if you require a specific type and strength of vibrations.

Secondly, thrusting can cause the vibrator to break contact with the clitoris. Look for a cock ring with a vertical vibrator, instead. Otherwise, it may simply be more effective to use a bullet vibrator or standard vibrator for clitoral stimulation.

Warning About Cock Rings

A well-fitting cock ring should be safe and comfortable to wear during a sex session. However, you shouldn't wear a cock ring for more than 30 minutes at a time, and men who have blood clotting disorders should avoid using cock rings altogether.

If your cock ring becomes stuck, cold water or ice can help you become soft and slip out of it.
