What man doesn’t want a longer, stronger, bigger erection with a more explosive orgasm?

A cock ring can give you just that and add a boost of confidence to your performance.  This is probably why they are so popular, even among those who wouldn’t normally be inclined to try sex toys.  It is like a push-up bra for a man’s package, meaning it causes it to sit forward and up.

If you are new to cock rings, I suggest starting with a stretchy material and working your way up to a more solid ring.  Getting a proper fit is essential when using a more solid ring.  A ring that is too loose will be ineffective.  A ring that is too tight can be painful and cause lock-up (more on that in a moment).  Trimmed or shaved pubic hair eliminates any pulled hair while wearing the ring.

Cock Ring Sizing Chart


5.50″ = 1 3/4″ ring
5.89″ = 1 7/8″ ring
6.28″ = 2″ ring

What size is the right size?


To measure your body, use a piece of string.  Loop it behind your balls and bring both ends of the string to the front of where your penis meets your abdomen.  Find a comfortable amount of snugness and mark the area where the two sides of string meet with a marker.  Measure the string in inches (this will be your circumference) and divide it by 3.14.  That number is your diameter and how cock rings are sized.

How does a cock ring work?


A cock ring works by restricting the blood flow in and out of the penis.  This causes the penis to feel harder and bigger.  It also causes orgasm to be delayed and more intense.

How does a cock ring get put on?


It is best to put a cock ring on a flaccid or semi-erect penis.  First, put lube on the body (around the balls and base of penis) and cock ring.  Next, gently push one ball at a time through the ring.  Then carefully push the semi-erect penis through the ring.  Once in place, you can go about your regular sex play.  Some men prefer to wear a cock ring over their balls and penis, while others prefer to wear it just at the base of their shaft.  How you choose to wear your cock ring is personal preference.  I encourage you to try both and decide for yourself.

How long can a cock ring be worn?


The average wear time for a cock ring is about 20 minutes.  You shouldn’t sleep (or pass out on those drunken nights) with a cock ring on because it can cause painful bruising.  If you feel pain or numbness while wearing a cock ring, then remove it.

What if I can’t get the ring off my body and my erection won’t go down?


Here is where we will talk about “lock-up”.  This term refers to when a man has a cock ring on, his penis becomes engorged, he freaks out and can’t get it off.  A man’s heart rate goes way up when this happens.  Often times, this leads to frantic calls and emergency room trips.  If this happens to you, RELAX.  I know, easier said then done in this situation.  By relaxing and lowering the heart rate, the cock ring should be able to be removed without a trip to the hospital.  Some things to help lower the heart rate could be a cold shower, smoking a cigarette, or meditating.  If using a cock ring made of a stretchy material or a silicone ring, scissors can be used to snip the ring for easy removal.

Types of Rings to Consider


Silicone gives the feel of a solid ring but can be snipped when needed.  These types of rings are a great alternative to more solid rings, especially for beginners. The Super Soft C-Ring from Tantus is super stretchy and has a flat bottom so it doesn’t roll, making it a great beginner’s ring.

I recommend avoiding chrome rings.  Much like your chrome bumper, with repeated exposure to heat and sweat, they do degrade.

Cheap vibrating rings, which can often be found in your local pharmacy, are generally disposable.  They have a very short battery life of about 20-40 minutes.  These are perfect for a cheap date, but not for a lasting cock ring relationship.  Cock rings with a vibrating bullet attachment are a great option to get the same buzz in a lasting way.
