What is a cock ring?

Simply put, a cock ring is a circular piece of material, shaped in the form of a ring, that goes around a man’s penis. They come in all different sizes. Including small, medium, large and for a special few, extra large.

Why wear a cock ring?

The reason men wear cock rings is to help maintain an erection. When worn properly, the ring safely restricts blood flow to the penis, thereby making a guy’s wood last longer.

There are a number of other benefits associated with wearing cock rings (sometimes referred to as penis rings). These include:

  • Firmer erections
  • Greater intensity for topping or bottoming
  • More powerful, explosive orgasms
  • Ability to maintain wood during oral episodes
  • The ability to spice things up in the bedroom
  • Helps you look super big when wearing mesh underwear

How do you wear a cock ring?

Wearing a cock ring isn’t all that difficult. They can be worn around the shaft of your balls or just around the shaft. Most guys find that placing the ring around the entirety of both peen and sack offers optimum results.

There are a number of cock rings available on the market. You can buy a simple silicone ring that is typically shipped with three different sizes in the box (safe bet for most guys).

Or, you can get something with a bit more flare. For example, there’s Dr. Throbber’s four piece set made of stretchy rubber. What’s nice about the stretchy kind is that you have lots of room for maneuvering.

And when you think about it – that’s kind of important.

 

What about vibrating penis rings?

Some guys like wearing cock rings that vibrate. This is particularly true of bisexual men who find themselves in different gender holes.

The vibrating cock rings are designed to offer an orgasmic tickle while extending pleasure for both the man wearing the ring and the individual on the receiving end.

Cock Ring Sizes

Generally speaking, most men will do just fine with a medium sized ring. That’s because on average, guys tend to be around the same size.

If you happen to be a man that’s packing large, your best bet is to go for the large or extra-large size. This will allow you plenty of room for adjustments – plus flexibility during intimate moments.

An excellent choice for big boys is a leather strap ring that snaps on (similar to a leather bracelet). What’s nice about this is you can remove it with ease, even with full wood. On the flip side, you can also put it on when you are hard.

If you want to give off an edgy vibe to your partner, you can opt for a metal ring. A lot of guys like wearing this one because it sends a powerful masculine message. Plus, it’s kind of cool.

Speaking of rings, let’s take a quick look at the different types, based on material. We’ve thrown in some pros and cons for each to help you with decision making.

Silicone Cock Rings

  • Come in all colors and stretch to adjust
  • Usually comfortable against the skin
  • Can get caught in pubic hair if too tight

Stretchy Penis Rings

  • Excellent for beginners
  • Allow for quick removal (as needed)
  • Perfect for men who are average size and small
  • Can tear/break if stretched too far

Glass, Metal and Wood Rings

  • Glass can chip and break so be careful
  • Metal doesn’t allow for a “stretch”
  • Wood can crack

FYI: Any of the non-stretch rings aren’t really the best choices for beginners. There are just too many problems that can crop up.

However, if you are more experienced with wearing penis rings, these types of toys shouldn’t be a problem.

How to Put on a Cock Ring

When putting on a cock ring, the operative word is slow. With that in mind, here is a step by step walk-through.

1) Ideally, you should be semi-erect when putting the ring on.

2) Slip one ball through the ring (slowly) and then slip the other ball through.

3) Once both of your berries are through the ring, pull the remaining circle upward and push your penis through the ring’s hole.

4) If you want, you can use a little lubricant to help get the head of your peen through the hole. Many guys find this to be helpful as a way of avoiding getting pinched.

When to Remove Cock Ring

While there is no hard and fast rule, a cock ring should not be worn longer than 20 minutes. It is best to remove it from your peen if your play session goes beyond this time frame. This will allow normal blood flow to your manhood while giving your Johnson a rest.

How to Remove a Penis Ring

After you have released, you should slowly and gently remove your ring. Again, you’ll want to be mindful of your pubic hair. Removal should also happen anytime you feel discomfort or pain.


Finally, make sure you take off your ring before you go to bed at night. Never sleep with one on. Doing so may cause damage to sensitive tissue and restrict blood flow to your scrotum. Plus, you don’t want to priapism; a condition that could send you to the emergency room.

Cock Ring Closing
