INS n' OUTS- COCK RING EDITION

Well hey there people, this is my Ins and Outs debut, and in fact my any-blog-ever debut, and what better inaugural topic than the enigmatic cock ring?


Over the years I feel like nothing has provoked so much blushing in my presence as questions about cock rings. People know the term, have heard rumours, but just what are they, these cock rings? What are they for? Who are they for? Is it essentially an elastic band for your dick? Well, I am here to answer those questions, and don’t worry, I can’t see you blush over the internet.


At their most basic, cock rings are, in fact, a lot like putting an elastic band around your finger (we all did that as kids, right?) Blood flows into the penis as it becomes erect, and the cock ring traps the blood and keeps it there until it is removed. Bam! Erection keeper! It can be as simple as that!


Just kidding. Even in its most basic loop form, cock rings can be made out of steel, silicone, leather, rubber, plastic, or anything that can be made into a ring and cinched. They can be one-size (like the classic Rubber Ring), adjustable (your 5-Stud Leather Cock Ring, for one), quick-releasing, or fitted with finger loops on the sides for easy on and offs (as pictured below, the Quick Release Cock Ring). See? And that’s just the one-ring kind!

How constrictive the cock ring is will depend on the material, and whether or not it’s adjustable. Soft jelly ones will be less constricting as the material stretches, whereas steel cock rings won’t stretch at all, and therefor will need to be fitted properly.


Cock rings can also come with a secondary loop that goes around the testicles. Where the cock portion of a cock ring keeps an erection but doesn’t affect ejaculation, ball rings act as an ejaculation delayer, and can be helpful for those looking for more longevity. These loops are often quick-releasing, so they can let that orgasm go basically on command.
 

Single loop-style cock rings can also go around both the cock and balls, and will usually be a little bigger (although some people like ‘em super tight!)


Cock rings can also serve the extremely noble purpose of attaching a vibrating bullet or two (or three!) to your favourite penis or penis shaped object. At this point the cock ring may or may not be about trapping an erection, and can be constrictive or not, depending on your wants. The cock ring may, at this point, be simply a conduit for clitoral or perineal stimulators, or even additional penetratey bits!

So while cock rings can totally be a super useful tool for those looking for a harder, longer lasting erection, or delayed ejaculation, the cock ring is by no means limited to medical applications. Cock rings can add all kinds of fun in sexy situations. A quick word of advice though, never leave a cock ring on too long! About 30-40 minutes is about as long as you want to wear one for before giving your member a little break. And make sure not to roll over and fall asleep still wearing one!


My personal favourite crème-de-la-crème type cock ring option, is the sleek, 100% silicone, and rechargeable Ela, by Key. Fun for all involved, I say.


Well that wraps it up for today. Hope we all learned a little something about the wonderful world of cock rings.

 Until next time!
