How to Use a Cock Ring | Beginner's Guide to Penis Rings

Posted by Mikayla to Men's Issues

Watch as our Sexpert tells you all about how and why to use a Cock Ring!

After watching, comment below and let us know if you've ever used a cock ring before! 



Over the last 6 years that I have been at TooTimid, I have been asked repeatedly about cock rings. Are they safe? YES. Do they work? YES. Will they help me maintain an erection? YES. Do they have ones that will be pleasurable for my partner? YES. How do you use a cock ring? Well, let’s explore the world of cock and vibrating rings and see what we can learn? Class is now in session.

Why Use a Cock Ring?
The idea behind a cock ring is simple: when placed correctly, it assist's in keeping the blood that flows into the penis IN the penis, allowing him to maintain an erection for longer and/or making his erection stronger. Vibrating cock rings can do this AND provide stimulation for the man and his partner – or – they can just be for the stimulation and not really add to the erection.

Cock Ring Placement
So, how does one ‘wear’ a cockring? You simply take the ring and stretch it under BOTH testicles and over the shaft. Do not just put it over the shaft at the base of the penis, this does nothing more than put a plastic ring around your cock. You need the pressure at the base of your balls to assist in blood flow retention. Keep in mind, the placement should be done while the penis is semi-hard, not completely hard, and not limp. As the blood flows IN, the cock ring will keep the blood there.

How To Put On A Cock Ring For Men

Size Matters
Yes, the size of your cock ring must be right. The last thing you want is for your penis to turn blue from lack of blood circulation. Cock rings are not “one size fits all” – so it is important to find the size and fit that is correct for your penis. It should feel snug, but not too tight. You should not be in pain, and it should not make your penis numb. On the contrary, it should not fall off either. My best suggestion is to get a basic 3-pack such as Magnum Force Cock Ring Set. This has 3 sizes to choose from, ranging from average to large.

How Long to Wear a Cock Ring
Since you are essentially cutting off some of the blood flow to your penis, you want to be very time conscious. You can’t leave it on for more than 20-25 minutes. Also, if you are in pain or your penis goes numb, remove the ring immediately! Always keep a pair of scissors handy in case you need to cut it off. So, enjoy your foreplay, put on your cock ring, and then enjoy a tremendous climax – just take the ring off at the 25 minute mark.

Partner Pleasure
Besides having the added bonus of a stronger erection, your partner can also get some clitoral stimulation if you go the vibrating cock ring route. There are many to choose from, but some of my favorites are: Tickling Rabbit C-Ring where you can have the benefits of a cock ring with the clitoral buzzing of a rabbit vibe. Or, the Clit Buddy - Rocky Rabbit Erection Enhancer is quite fabulous! For the more advanced, a unique cock ring experience is the Deluxe Vibrating Penis Enhancer as this is a sheath for the penis, as opposed to a ring, that hugs the penis and delivers a more secure feeling while also giving vibrations to the woman. It is a unique experience that is bound to bring intense orgasms!

Happy Ending
Whatever route you choose, a cock ring can be a fun diversion for those couples wanting to try a little spice – or – it can be an added erectile aide. If you feel you want to vamp up your erection just a bit, try a cock ring. The normal weaning of an erection can be remedied by these little rings. For mild ED a cock ring can be an ego boost that helps TREMENDOUSLY. Also, I have never heard a woman complain about a harder erection! Basically, these rings are a win-win situation! So, why not try out a cock ring or vibrating ring – there are tons to choose from. Let’s all ring better sex with a cock ring, shall we?

This article was very helpful, as cock rings don't come with any instructions. I bought 2 jelly type thinking they would be fun and after using the first one with nothing different than without, the second one still sits unwrapped. Placement is the key and now that I know how and where to place it, that second one will be getting used VERY soon.

I wish I had found this article sooner. My situation was the exact same as Fleshlight's up there. It didnt help my partner get anything from it and it certainly didnt help me. Now that I know more about the placement however... Thanks for this btw! =D

I had never used one and when they didn't come with instructions, I found that thanks to this article, I was using them wrong, I had been wondering why it hadn't worked. I am thankful for this article

I have definitely used a cock ring before with my boyfriend! Honestly though it wasn't the best experience. But here's the thing A: we were using it wrong and B: the vibrations did not reach my clit! We are definitely going to try again soon with a cock ring from the store here :) I'm just going to make damn sure that we use it as Bethany instructed and that we buy one that will actually vibrate in the right spots. Dont' forget to tell us about your experience with cock rings for a chance to win $20 to TooTimid.com!

I’ve used a cock ring with my man, and it was honestly amazing. He has an erection in seconds and I was having orgasms left and right. When he’s not home I slip it on my toy and go to town, feeling amazing as usual. Our sex life has never been the same since we used one.

First time we used one it kept getting tangled in our hair. Second time we both shaved clean and no longer an issue. Had some difficulty getting the ring under my balls but once in place everything worked fine. Stayed hard lots longer and lots longer too. Knowing how to use one is the key.

I've had good experiences with cock rings. When I first tried one, I put it on wrong and my girl and I were like, eh. Then I figured out on my own how it goes on by thinking about the concept of it and HOLY FLYONG BITT MONKEY! Big change. I'll be getting a vibrating one soon because I gotta make sure she gets hers, wink wink.

I've used a (vibrating) cock ring with my partner before, and it was a great experience for both of us. Unfortunately, it seems many men are too proud to use one, thinking it's only for those with ED or guys who don't last long. I love that this video shows other reasons and perks for using it. <3

My partner and I have never used one although I have a few sitting in my collection. Most of them have come from gift with purchase, but not something I ever sought out. I did find this interesting, and as some of the other commenters pointed out, they don't come with instructions... So this was helpful! Thank you for the info!

We have used a remote control vibrating cock ring while out on a date. And then back in the bedroom. It was quite hot. And fun. For us both.

I have not used one before but think I should give it a try just to stay hard longer.... I'm not a young stud anymore :)

I am somewhat confused, can someone explain... I have always used a ring that I slide down to the base of my penis and it stays hard usually until I come a second time, but here you say I need to put it around my balls to?? If I put it under my balls and then over my penis, it pulls my penis at a downward angle. If It is supposed to go under my balls, is it supposed to twist around the base of my penis?? Please help me with, so I am not doing it wrong. My wife wants a vibrating ring, so again I want to make sure I do it correctly for her and my sake. Thanks

I have tried using them for a long time and yet I can't find the right size, now that I'm over 50 the erections are not solid. I would like to know how I can measure them for the right fit. Thanks

I have defiently used them. I wasnt sure how to use one at first but with some persistence i figured it out. After finally figuring it out OMG it was a game changer not that i needed it but it made me feel like Superman i felt like i grew another inch and felt very thick. The girlfriend said she could absolutely feel a difference and loved it. I now have several different styles ????

Elise @ TooTimid
@NoProb We apologize for any confusion! There's no need to be worried as it seems like you are already getting much success out of a shaft only cock ring! :) I think where the confusion comes in here is that there are some cock rings which are made to go just over the shaft, not the balls, so if you have a cock ring that is less flexible and will not stretch around the balls then that is just how that cock ring is made and you are using it correctly :)

What we believe here at TooTimid, and what Bethany is referring to in the video, is that in order to achieve the full erection you are hoping for, you need the pressure at the base of your balls to assist in blood flow retention. We find that most men see a huge difference in their erection when they use a cock ring which is placed around both the balls and the shaft due to the large increase in blood flow. Maybe you could try a stretchier vibrating cock ring out such as the Bunny Love Cock Ring - https://www.tootimid.com/bunny-love-cockring-7821.html to see if placing the cock ring on both the shaft and the balls make your erection harder or not. If not then you are perfectly fine using the cock ring simply over the shaft. It will work both ways, but adding the pressure to the balls usually increases blood flow and makes the erection harder. And to answer your questions in regards to the "twist" around the base of the penis, you may want to try to prevent that twist from happening if possible just so that it doesn't squeeze your skin! It looks twisted in the video when she puts the cock ring on the toy but she didn't purposefully allow it to twist I think that was an accident :) I hope this helped answer some questions for you! If you have any more questions or if I didn't fully answer the question just let me know!
