What Is A Cock Ring?

Posted by Mikayla to Men's Issues
I am sure most of you have heard the term “cock ring” but do you know WHAT it is exactly or what it is used for?  Do you think it is a novelty item that really has no purpose?  Do you think it is something used in kinky sex?  Is it something that will help you have better sex?  Will it please your partner in any way?  Or, maybe you don’t really know what a cock ring is, how it is used or when to use it. Well, never fear because I am going to tell you everything!  Read on to see the answers to all these questions, "What Is a Cock Ring?" and more!

USE AND SAFETY

The most important thing to remember when using a cock ring is to use it properly and safely.  Many men report cock ring failure and this is almost always because they are using them wrong!
 
A cock ring is a stretchy (usually rubber) band of varying sizes.  They differ in style from single
ring (most common) to double ring, leather, vibrating, etc.  No matter which one you choose, the placement and use is very important.  A cock ring is NOT one-size fits all!  You need to find the one that is the proper size to fit your penis.

A cock ring should be put on when
your penis is in semi-hard state and it goes around your shaft and UNDER your balls.  This placement ensures that the vessel that carries blood into the penis is pressed, thereby ensuring the blood stays IN your penis.  You should never keep a cock ring on if you experience pain, numbness or if your cock turns bright red.  Also, 20-25 minutes is the MAXIMUM recommended time to use a cock ring.  So, whether you have ejaculated or not, no more than 25 minutes on is the safest bet.  You do not want to cause harm to your penis!

Cock rings were originally designed as a solution / help for men who suffered from mild ED (Erectile Dysfunction) as it keeps the blood in the penis.  It is a great thing for any man who is having mild ED issues to try as it is safe (as long as you follow instructions) and painless.  It can also be used by any man who wants a harder and longer-lasting erection.

DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE

Cock rings have come a long way and now are designed to have a pleasuring affect to the wearer AND the wearer’s partner as well.  There are vibrating cock rings that will buzz your balls AND buzz your partner’s clitoris.  There are textured cock rings that provide a different sensation while you wear it.  Some have a vibrating attachment like a dolphin or bunny ears to provide intense clitoral stimulation for your partner. There are even metal or rubber “cages” that will encircle your cock and provide an intense sensation for your partner.  Keep in mind, however, that some cock rings are more of a novelty item for fun, and not as much for function.  So, if you are looking for a cock ring to help with ED, then go with the standard, single-ring style as this will be the most effective.

To make your cock ring the most effective, find the correct size.   I would suggest buying a cock ring set (usually there are 3 sizes) and then finding which one works the best.  There are adjustable cock rings, but these are more for novelty and partner play as opposed to an ED solution.  Once you find the size that fits snugly – NOT tightly – you are ready to use it.  Remember, put the cock ring on during a semi-hard state.  You can put it on when the cock is completely hard, but this is not always as easy.

Make sure the ring goes snugly under the balls (be careful if you have hair down there as the ring may pull the hair).  Gently push the ring back toward your body so it lies flush against you.  Now as the blood fills your penis the pressure of the ring will keep it IN your penis, thereby ensuring a longer-lasting erection.  Just keep in mind 25 minutes is the longest you should wear your ring.  If you have any pain or numbness it is imperative you remove the ring IMMEDIATELY.  Even if you have to cut it off (yes, I said it, use scissors). 

So whether you are experiencing a lack of hardness during erection, sporadic issues with achieving an erection that allows penetration, or you simply want to try something new for you and your partner, a cock ring is a fun and functional item!
  
Word of Advice: 
If you are having more than sporadic ED issues and a cock ring does not help, see a doctor.  You do not want to overlook a serious issue.
