Benefits Of Cock Rings | Best Cock Rings For Men

When you think of sex toys for men, cock rings are generally going to be in the top three of your first guesses. Cock rings are exclusively for men, and they’re designed to be directly used for the penis. Cock rings aren’t just all fun and games though the use of cock rings can actually be very beneficial to both men, and their partners.

What Does It Do?

A cock ring works in a surprisingly simple way. The penis develops an erection through blood pressure. There are several arteries within the shaft of the penis some of which have valves which can shut off, or limit, blood flow in order to develop an erection. A well placed cock ring acts as the valve for these arteries ensuring that a ‘manual’ shut off occurs. Cock rings will assist when the valves have difficulty through such events as heart issues, loss of sensation, diabetes, poor blood circulation as well as a recovery assist post prostate surgery or through any other male sexual dysfunction that affects men’s health.

The cock ring will not assist in some situations which causes a thinning of the blood. For the cock ring to assist in a situation like this it would have to be excessively tight potentially causing damage to the delicate penile tissue. Diabetes, alcohol or substance abuse are just some of the ailments which +can result in the thinning of blood and where cock rings may not be suitable in providing the benefits that they’d normally provide. It is for this reason as to why cock rings are not generally recommended for sustained use. If you experience any discolouration, numbness or anything outside the normal realm of sexual experience, you should immediately remove your cock ring. Massage the shaft to promote blood flow and discontinue use. Failure to do this, in extreme cases, can cause tissue damage, artery damage and other damage to the penis.

The point of a cock ring is to assist in maintaining erections when the body is unable to do so by itself. Cock rings can essentially save the day and assist with mental issues such as performance anxiety and erectile dysfunction – they are not to be necessarily used as a cure all.

Types Of Cock Rings

Cock rings are very much like dicks, which is ironic in some ways. Cock rings come in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes to suit all tastes, budgets and requirements. For example, leather cock rings make for a great look, aesthetically pleasing and would be ideal to wear to a FetLife Munch. However, they are difficult to keep hygienically clean due to being porous. Leather absorbs sweat and other bodily fluids quite easily. Cock rings can be made of a few materials. The most common types of cock rings are made from rubber and silicone. These are stretchy, soft, and come in a wide variety of different colours, styles, shapes and with all sorts of different functions.

If you’ve never worn a cock ring before and you want to try them out –we would be recommending you to use a rubber or a silicone material as your first style.

Another popular style of cock ring are ones made from leather and steel. Steel cock rings will have absolutely no give in them and they are recommended only for experienced users of cock rings. In order to use a metal cock ring you’ll need to know exactly what size you are, and whether or not you prefer a tighter constriction, or something a little looser. You’ll only be able to answer these questions when you’ve been wearing cock rings for a while. Leather cock rings will have less give in them than silicone, but are considered to be a little safer than metal. Leather cock rings are usually applied via a button press snap lock system, which you can buckle up, and or buckle off when needed.

From there – you will generally have one of two choices of a style of cock ring.

1. Non Vibrating Cock Rings:-

Non-vibrating cock rings are exactly what they are – cock rings that do not vibrate. Non vibrating cock rings can be found with any material, and texture and shape and will range super tight, to extremely large sizes. There’s several reasons why a man would want to wear a cockring and not all of them are sexually related. Anon-vibrating cock ring will provide you with the following benefits.

  • It will give you tighter, firmer erections. Making you look bigger and thicker.
  • Delays ejaculation. The constriction on the vessels also means the muscles have to work harder during ejaculation which may result in more powerful orgasms and shooting further than usual.
  • Gives you a bulkier package in underwear. Think about, you have a cock ring that’s a finger width wide at the base of your cock. It pushes everything out – giving you a more pronounced bulge. This is especially useful for parties, saunas, foam parties and any other situation where you’re walking around in underwear. Actually, a lot of underwear models will now use cock rings. A cock ring will also help them stay semi hard so that they can retain the most ideal shape for the photo shoot. Go-go boys and dancers might also wear them.

he above cock ring is from the brand ‘Perfect Fit’. It’s made from a PF blend which is comprised of a TPR and silicone. I’ve generally found, that without misuse and over stretching, that the perfect fit rings will last a hell of a lot longer than normal cock rings. The bonus, these rings will stretch over anything. And I mean anything, look at your wrist. It will easily stretch over that. These are the spongiest and softest cock ring that I’ve ever used and because of that you can generally, so long as there’s no numbness or pain, wear this longer than normal. These things can go anywhere with you, from the club, to the sauna to a night out on town. When you’re ready to fuck, or jerk, they’ll be ready whenever you need them.

 

2. Vibrating Cock Rings:-

Cock rings can also come with vibrators situated on them for extra stimulation. The vibrations can either provide stimulation to a partner’s vulva or clitoris, or provide unique and intense vibrations on the shaft, balls and other areas of the penis. Vibrating cock rings have the benefits of non-vibrating cock rings with the bonus of vibrations. This can be both a good and a bad thing.

Some men might find that they’re a little overwhelmed by the vibrations, this will result in them coming a little too quickly to the party. To combat this it is recommended that you try the cock ring with the vibrating function on first during masturbation or solo use, so as you become accustomed to the sensation. Over time, you will become immune to the vibrations and you will actually be able to last longer in the bedroom! So maybe that’s a good thing after all. The only potentially bad thing about vibrating cock rings can be the bulkiness of the vibrator itself.

Vibrating Rings Can Be Used In Several Ways And This Is Dependent On Whether It Has One Or Two Vibrators.

 

  1. The vibrator can be pointing downwards towards your feet. This will mean that the vibrations will be primarily felt on the balls. If you like your balls being licked, sucked or played with then you’ll definitely need to get your hands on one of these.
  2. The vibrator can be pointing upwards towards your shoulders. This will lessen the vibrations on the balls, but will make it useful during sex where it can provide clitoral, vulva or perineum stimulation. With each thrust, the vibrations will be placed on your playmates body.

For Solo Use

I’m selecting the Remote Control Silicone cock ring by Maxpassion. Whilst the vibrator on this is considered to be a little larger than normal, if you’re using this solo and for testicular stimulation then it’s going to drive you crazy. Simply strap the big strap around the shaft, the smaller strap around your balls and hold it on, put the remote in your pocket, press play and off you go. Pretty simple! With three speeds and seven different pulses you’re going to find a setting for you.

Choosing A Cock Ring

The simple fact of the matter is this; go try them out. It may take some time, it may take some experimentation, but a cock ring is the first thing that you should always put in your overnight bag, it should be the first thing you reach for in a play session. Granted, not every guy likes the constriction around his cock and the feeling that his dick is in a cage, but like condoms, they come in different sizes and different levels of tightness. It’s simply about experimenting to find one that works for you and your body.

You may find that the vibrations means that you’ll come faster – this may happen a few times before your body adjusts to the extra sensation, don’t panic. In the long run the vibrations will actually help you last longer in bed. Consider them as a stamina training unit of sorts – yes, even your penis can develop stamina. Don’t forget to try the different materials as well. Some people like their cock rings to be quite soft, and others like them to be quite tight and constricting. If you’ve never had one around you before, it’s going to be difficult to know what you’re going to like.

Measuring Up

If you’re looking at buying a metal cock ring or something that doesn’t have a lot of give in the material, then you should keep in mind that you will need to measure up. To measure up for a steel cock ring you will need a piece of string, a ruler and a calculator.

Wrap the piece of string around the base of the shaft and behind the balls when you are flaccid, pinch where the string meets making sure that it’s comfortable, yet firm. Measure the length of string and divide by 3.14. Repeat this process with an erection and take the average of the two results. There you go, you’re measured up. From there you’re going to know roughly what size diameter you need. You might try and get the size up, or the size down depending on your comfort levels. If in doubt, it’s always better to round up than down until your comfortable wearing steel cock rings. You can also use this measuring up process to help find a suitable size if you’re interested in male chastity and cock cages.

Some cock rings, and cages, will have a splitting design. Meaning that you can actually unscrew the steel cock ring and it’ll either come in two halves, or it’ll open up for easy taking on and taking off.

Wearing A Cock Ring

For the most part, a cock ring is placed at the very base of the penis, behind the balls. It is advised that you trim or shave the area, as putting a cock ring on is quite easy. But when you’re finished, surrounding by various bodily fluids and lubricant, it can make the removal of the cock ring to be quite a tricky endeavour.

There are exceptions to this. If you happen to have a long penis which can’t quite fit into the orifice that you’re trying to fit into – then you might need to adjust where the cock ring is sitting. You can still use a cock ring at the very base to keep you firm and ready, but you could add a cock ring along the length of the shaft to provide vibrating stimulation and a marker to show you just how deep you can go.

Tips And Tricks

Cock rings can be used very effectively in conjunction with male enhancement creams, vacuum pumps, and prostate toys. The enhancement creams can provide extra stimulation to the glans area or penis head and create a warm and tingling effect. Not only can this assist in building an erection before a cock ring is placed on, but it can also assist in providing stimulation to those that have experienced a loss of sensation, particularly after surgery. The enhanced stimulation combined with the cock ring can create some powerful erections.

The vacuum pump device is considered to one of the most effective devices when it comes to maintaining erections. The vacuum pump draws in the blood to the penile region, whereby the cock ring clamps down on the arteries, thus keeping the penis firm and erect. The vacuum pump will generally come with its own cock ring, however, you should always have several on standby for any unforeseen events. Vacuum pumps come in a variety of styles with different advantages and will be covered in a later chapter.
