Are there any kinds of cock ring I should avoid?

Yes! You should stay away from any materials you’re allergic to. You don’t need an allergic reaction to stop you from all your fun.

You also need to be careful when using more stretchy materials because they can pull hair. The best thing to do is to trim or shave the areas that are going to be affected.

It is also not recommended using cock rings made of metal if you are a beginner. They’re much harder to remove if something goes wrong. Beginners should stick to the more stretchy materials that can be cut off with a pair of scissors.

A cock ring is a ring that can be placed around a man’s penis, usually at the base. Cock rings are used to restrict blood flow out of the penis, which creates sensations of tightness and pressure that many men find pleasurable. Although some people find that wearing a cock ring can make erections firmer or longer-lasting.

A cock ring is not a cure for erectile difficulties. You need to first consult a physician before using one if you are having erectile difficulties. Individual anatomical differences, cock rings will not fit all people equally well.

Cock rings can be worn around just the penis or the scrotum. If worn just around the scrotum this is normally called the testicle cuff. You can also wear it around both the penis and scrotum. Rings can be made of a variety of different materials; most commonly leather, rubber, silicone and metal.

Cock rings are usually worn at the base of the penis, behind the scrotum, although some men wear them around the shaft of the penis only. It’s easier to put on a cock ring before your penis is fully erect.

Trimming or shaving the hair around the penis base and/or scrotum to decrease the likelihood of catching hair in the ring or snaps is a good idea. You should wear cock rings for no longer than 20 minutes. If the cock ring begins to feel uncomfortable before the 20 minutes you should remove it immediately. If you’re using a ring for the first time, you may want to remove it after five or ten minutes so you can become familiar with the various sensations cock rings provide.

Here are some tips for putting on some of the different cock rings out there.

Testicle-spreader – The testicle spreader is a device that spreads or separates the testicles from each other as well as the penis. The spreader is normally made out of leather.

To place the spreader on you need to place the longer strap behind the scrotum and snap closed on top of the penis which forms a ring. To know if you have it in place correctly the short straps should be hanging down, behind the scrotum. Next, you will snap each short strap to the ring. By using one of your hands, hold one of your testicles and the other hand to bring the strap between testicles and to side of ring. Each short strap is intended to hold one testicle. You will know it is put on correctly if the testicles are separated from each other.

Vibrating Cock Rings – Vibrating cock rings can be worn behind the scrotum or in front. Some of them are snug enough to provide the squeezing sensation that makes cock rings popular. If they are snug it will help hold the vibrator in place without much constriction.

You can wear the vibrating cock ring during intercourse to pleasure your partner’s clitoris. Place the vibe on top of your penis for face to face positions and on the underside for rear entry. You can also wear the ring behind the scrotum with the vibrator underneath your testicles for an extra sensation during solo sex or sex with a partner.

Be creative by using the vibrating cock ring either on your fingers or a dildo to give a little different action in bed. Make sure that the cock ring is snug enough where it won’t fall off at the wrong time.

Know that when using it on the penis it does not always keep in contact with the clitoris so it may not work as you expect it to work but it does give a nice hum in the right place when placed on correctly, even for just a little while.

Single-strap Cock Ring (Adjustable) – Place the cock ring behind the scrotum and fasten over the top of the penis. Adjust it for a snug fit.

It is recommended to try using this kind of cock ring first for many reasons. One reason is that they are easy to remove if things get intense or uncomfortable. These cock rings are normally made of leather.

Because the single-strap cock ring is adjustable it makes an easy fit for most.

Single Cock Ring (solid) – These should be used only by men experienced with other types of cock rings. While the penis is soft, tuck one testicle down through the ring and then the second one. Once you have both testicles in then penis is to go in next through the ring.

When placing the cock ring on if you use a good lubricant it will help in taking it off much easier. Other ways to remove the cock ring from an erect penis is to either ejaculation, cold water or an ice compress will reduce the size of an erection which helps removal of the cock ring.

With most material, you can cut off with a nice pair of blunt-tipped safety or paramedic scissors.

To remove the cock ring just move backward as you did putting it on. Take one testicle out at a time and then your penis.

Wearing a solid cock ring should only be used by those who have been using cock rings for a while and know how to use them correctly.

Solid cock rings do not stretch or adjust so always read up on how to put them on and take them off.

Again, how to put them on is to tuck your testicles into the ring one at a time first and then fold your penis down and while inserting the tip of the penis under the ring. Pull the ring up towards your body.

Make sure to use common sense, as metal rings don’t unsnap. Take your time putting the ring on and off, and use a small amount of lube to help it glide over your skin. If you feel discomfort, remove the ring immediately. If you have any hesitations about using a solid cock ring, don’t use one.

Make sure the fit is right. If the cock ring is to large then it will not restrict the blood flow enough and also may fall off. If the cock ring is to small then you won’t be able to get it on and off correctly.

Measure yourself first by taking a string, slipping it behind your testicles and tug it around the top of your penis. Mark where the string comes together and this measurement will give you your circumference. Divide the number you get by 3.14 and this will tell you what size fits you.

For example:
5.5” circumference = 11/4” diameter
5.89” circumference = 1 7/8”
6.28” circumference = 2” diameter

There are a lot of people who like the stainless steel cock rings over the others because of different reasons. Some of those reasons are of their weight as well as they are easy to clean up.

Choosing the right size is the key to getting the right one. If you don’t have the right size then it is not going to be an enjoyable experience. I had one person say, pain is all good in BDSM if it is safe and wearing the wrong size cock ring is not safe or comfortable.

Quality rings are most often sized with graduations available by 1/8 inch to ensure the proper fit. It has also been my experience that the style of the ring will dictate the proper size. While a cock ring that has a band 1/2 inches wide may wear comfortably being a diameter of 1 & 7/8 inches, going to a cock ring with a 1-inch band may fit better having a 2-inch diameter.

No matter what cock ring you get, you must have the right size that fits you. Do the math and get the right fit and start having fun.

Now with all things, there can be risks and so I have added the risks and warnings that come with wearing the wrong cock ring or wearing it to long.

Risks & Warning:

Do not use cock rings if you bleed easily or have a blood clotting disorder, if you are diabetic, or if you suffer from any peripheral vascular or nerve disease. Do not use these toys if you are taking anticoagulants, aspirin, or any other blood-thinning medication. In the event use causes discomfort or any unusual body changes — including bruising, pain, bleeding or loss of sensation — discontinue use immediately and check with a sex-positive physician. Do not place over sore, swollen, or infected areas or areas without sensation.

Vendors of cock rings and medical sources always indicate that cock rings are not to be worn for more than about 20 minutes. Falling asleep or using illicit drugs at the same time is very dangerous. The first sign of pending problems are when the penis starts to become numb or pallid. As soon as this happens, the cock ring must be removed.

To ensure that cock rings easily come off, the latest ones have quick-release mechanisms to avoid having to struggle with pulling the rubber ring from the base of the penis. Cock rings should not be used without medical advice by individuals who are on blood-thinning medications, those who have heart disease or sickle-cell disease. Diabetes is very often accompanied by ED, and pumps and rings are often recommended or prescribed medically.

Cock rings may slip off. Removing an elastic ring can be difficult as it may become entangled, inconveniently and painfully, in pubic hair. Some can cause severe tightening of the scrotum. Cock rings are best used with some type of personal lubricant. Where a ring is frequently used, as for ED, it may be desirable to trim or remove the pubic hair.
