What is a cock ring and how does it work?

A cock ring is a ring worn around the penis and often behind the balls. It enhances the appearance of the genitals, giving men a fuller and harder erection. It can also help to maintain an erection and prolong orgasm. When a man is aroused blood flows into his penis, causing an erection. At the same time a small muscle spasm occurs near the base of the penis which traps the blood, keeping his cock hard. A cock ring works by helping to keep the blood inside the penis, making for a fuller and harder erection.

What kinds of cock rings are available?
Basic:
This cock ring is very stretchy and easy to look after: just wash with soap and water. It can also be used over a condom, for a little extra protection place it at the base of the condom to prevent leakage. A basic ring is a great place to start exploring the world of cock rings.

How do you wear a cock ring?

Most cock rings are designed to be worn behind the balls and around the top of the shaft of the penis, right against the mans body. With a snugger flexible ring (such as one made out of jelly, silicone or rubber) you can choose to wear it only around the shaft. Leather and metal rings are always worn behind the scrotum.

To wear a flexible ring you start by putting the ring around one ball and then the other, fitting your flaccid penis through the ring last. The snug feeling you have with the cock ring on flaccid will be approximately the same when the penis is erect. Once you get the hang of putting the cock ring on with a flaccid penis, you can also try with it semi-erect.

What safety precautions should I be aware of?
We don’t recommend wearing a cock ring for longer than 20 minutes because you don’t want to constrict blood flow for too long. It can cause damage. Remember when you were a kid and you wrapped that piece of string around your finger and then couldn’t get it off? Remember how much it hurt? Enough said?

A cock ring should only increase the size of an erection slightly. If you wear a cock ring that is too tight you run the risk of damaging your precious package. Be careful and start out nice and easy… like with our super stretchy ring for $5.

If you are diabetic, or have any other disorders such as blood clotting or nerve disorder you should check with your doctor before using a cock ring.
A less serious (but more likely to impact you) warning is this: the hairs around the base of the penis and scrotum can get caught in the ring and be pulled out when you take it off. Ouch! Be very careful, or better yet, trim them!
