What are cock rings?

Cock rings can vary in shape and style however, in essence, they are a ring of material that sits around the base of the penis to enhance both masturbation and sex. They are, more often than not, made out of a stretchy material to allow for easy application. Most cock rings are also fully compatible with condoms and lubes, making them a very versatile sex toy – just be sure to read the instructions before use!

What are cock rings for?

Cock rings are used by men predominantly to improve their sexual experience. Use of a cock ring can allow the wearer to enhance their erection. A good cock ring applied correctly is thought to make the penis harder, appear larger and assist in making an erection last longer.

Cock rings may sound like a male-only pleasure; however, some cock rings also vibrate, meaning they have an added benefit for a partner during penetrative sex.

How do cock rings work?

Cock rings are designed to circle the penis, usually at the base of the shaft, testicles or both. In short, cock rings are designed to restrict the blood flow out of the penis just enough to keep it harder than normal. In no way does the cock ring cut off circulation, rather it just slows it down, helping you get a harder erection that lasts longer.

Cock ring benefits for him

Cock rings are designed for men, with the explicit intent of improving the sexual experience during both masturbation and penetrative sex. Cock ring benefits for men can include the following:

  • Make an erect penis look larger
  • Make an erection harder and more full
  • Can make an erection last longer
  • Can intensify sexual pleasure during both masturbation and sex

Cock ring benefits for her

Although not designed to be worn by a woman, use of a cock ring during sex with a partner can have a lot of benefits, especially if the chosen cock ring is a vibrating cock ring. Cock ring benefits for her can include:

  • Increased stimulation if the cock ring is a vibrating cock ring
  • Longer lasting penetrative sex

How to put a cock ring on

What makes cock rings so great is that they are a small, discreet sex toy that is easy to apply. Once you’ve read the instructions on the cock ring packaging, follow our simple steps to make using a cock ring as easy as it can possibly be:

  1. Remove the cock ring from its packaging and ensure you have any extra products that you want to use (e.g. lube) ready at hand.
  2. take your penis in one hand, stretch the cock ring over and position it at the base.
  3. Make sure you are comfortable. Ensure the cock ring is not pinching - it should fit snugly, but not completely cut off the blood flow.

If you have chosen a thrilling vibrating cock ring, then do not turn the vibrations on until the cock ring is in place. This should make the whole experience run more smoothly and you won’t waste the battery during application.

Cock rings and condoms

If you are wondering whether you can wear a cock ring and a condom together at the same time - the resounding answer is yes – just ensure you read the pack instructions beforehand!

To use a cock ring with a condom, simply apply your condom as you usually would, and then put your cock ring on using the above steps. Your cock ring should sit over the condom, not the other way around.

How long can you wear a cock ring for?

Cock rings can be worn for up to 30 minutes at a time, not for any longer, and you should always wait at least 60 minutes between uses. Prolonged cock ring usage could cause damage to the penis, however, don’t let this put you off.

If you do experience pain or discomfort during normal cock ring usage, then simply remove the cock ring and give your penis a break from stimulation. If you experience any long-term discomfort, then seek advice from your GP or local sexual health clinic.
