Why You Should Try Using A Cock Ring

Posted by Harry Deller on

While cock rings look simple and are pretty straightforward to use, anyone who has gone for the cock ring in a shop full of bigger and bolder toys would never in a million years underestimate its power. In this article, learn about cock rings and why it’s time you get one (or gift your beau one!)

What is a cock ring?

It's what you might imagine it to look like when you hear the words “cock ring.” And, yes, while it may resemble your girlfriend’s trusty scrunchie, just don’t clock it till you’ve tried it!

A cock ring is made of either silicone, rubber, nitrile, plastic, or velcro. You place it at the base of your penis to restrict blood flow down there. By using a cock ring, you enjoy harder and longer lasting erections, which ultimately result also in longer lasting, more satisfying sex.

There are all kinds of cock rings. For beginners, you want the rubber or silicone ones -- most adjustable ones are made of this material. You want to get an adjustable cock ring so you can change up the level or intensity of blood flow constriction you want to experience.

For those who want to experiment a little bit more, there’s also the vibrating cock ring. Vibrating cock rings are great for those who want to add more sensation than usual, but they are exceptionally perfect for partnered play as the vibration also stimulates your partner as you thrust in and out of their vadge or bum. (So, yes, in instances like these, you might also need a unanimous couple vote for cock rings, as you would with other toys!)

Why should you try it?

Because you want erect-rifying sex

As mentioned above, cock rings help you be a true goer in bed. But aside from harder and longer erections, it can also intensify your orgasm itself. The explanation for this is that the longer you stay hard, the more intense the build-up towards the big finish becomes. What this means for you and your partner though is that you two have to keep up with the sweat sesh that will occur due to your longer-lasting ‘still in the game’ erection. If you don’t mind the extra few minutes of cardio, then by all means, go nuts! Pun intended.

Important safety reminder though: keep it on for about twenty or thirty minutes only so you don’t risk any bigger blood circulation problems. However, you’ll still likely stay hard after that, so just thank it for its help and carry on without it!

Because you want to look down in awe

Yes, on top of harder and longer erections, a cock ring can also give you a bigger erection. There are a few guys who do not actually feel that they have trouble getting or staying hard but grab a cock ring at the shop anyway just because they like the way it makes their penis look. Don’t expect anything magical here though – you won’t get three or four inches more hung with a cock ring. What the concentration of blood will do is it will make your penis appear plumper or more “full”, which for sure is still a welcome upgrade!

Because there’s so much you can do with it

With a vibrating cock ring, that is. Any sex toy owner knows that any vibrating toy is a gift that keeps on giving, and the vibrating cock ring is definitely no exception to that. Your partner can slip it on their fingers while they give you a handjob. They can run it down your favourite erogenous zones – your nipples, your neck, your perineum (or that sweet spot between your balls and your anus, right where your prostate should be.)

There’s also some partnered fun to be had with a rubber or silicone cock ring! With the right amount of (safe to ingest) lubricant, your partner can slip it over their tongue while they treat you to a nice blowjob as you sit back. You will feel the ring hug your penis tightly while the slimy sensation of their tongue sends you places. With this handy toy, you are guaranteed to have yourself a great time.

A few tips

Have lube at the ready

As with any sex toy or sex in general, lube is your friend. With enough lube, you can have the cock ring slip in and out comfortably. This is especially important for first timers as you may not know yet what level of constriction you are comfortable with, if you’re comfortable at all. Also, if you are going to be doing anal play, use a lot of lube to avoid any trouble.

Be responsible with sex toy care

Always make sure to wash your cock ring before and after use. Use water and soap for a thorough clean. Right after sessions – for example, when your hook-up has just ended and you know there’ll be some time between you taking it off and actually washing it – use a sex toy cleaner for a quick clean, and then wash thoroughly when you find the time. This is so important; sex toys can be the reason you contract or spread STIs, and you don’t want to have that experience with sex toys. Sex toys, especially cock rings, are meant to be enjoyed through and through!

Listen to your body

If you feel any discomfort or pain, take it off immediately. You don’t want to risk any damage to your health. Wearing a cock ring should make you feel good – it was designed for that purpose. So if you are responding to it differently, it’s best to stay on the safe side and put it away for the time being. Anyway, if what you have is a vibrating cock ring, you can still play with it a million ways. Or you can stock up on other sex toys that get you to the heights of pleasure successfully!
