Penis rings or cock rings are what I like to refer to as the chocolate sprinkles of sex.
Sure, decadent vanilla soft serve tastes fine as is, but would you really turn down chocolate sprinkles
if given the option to maximize your taste buds? I didn’t think so
So just like vibrators, flavored lubes, nipple clamps, and massage oils help you achieve better sex,
cock rings are, like, the move for your man.
The penis ring is worn around the base of the penis and sometimes the testicles
to make erections harder, bigger, and longer-lasting.
They come in different materials, from flexible silicone and rubber to leather and metal.
Why should he use a Penis Ring?
Penis rings are primarily designed to restrict blood flow into the shaft of the penis.
This restricted blood flow can help maintain a stronger erection, as well as make the shaft and tip more sensitive to touch.
So in other words, a man’s restricted peen will over-sensitize ev-er-y-thing.
But these benefits work for the woman too.
The penis ring can aid a man who tends to orgasm quickly or has difficulty maintaining an erection,
plus, if you and your man opt for a penis ring that has a built-in vibrator, you can both reap the orgasmic benefits.
How to use a cock ring
Most penis rings are designed to be put on when the penis is flaccid or partially flaccid, with the erection sort of “growing” into it.
The ring can be situated either in front of (good for beginners) or behind the testicles.
Keeping the ring behind the testicles can also help delay ejaculation.
If your partner is wearing a condom with a penis ring, put the ring on first, then, when the penis is fully erect, put the condom on second.
Plus, you don’t want the condom to be stretched over or under the ring, as the ring could pull on it and cause a potential rip.
6 Penis Rings for Beginners
- The Versa Tingler Vibration Ring
This versatile vibrating ring not only works as a penis ring but also as a finger vibe
if you and your man aren’t super into using it as a cock ring.
The versa tingler is made from soft and stretchy silicone and comes with nearly 12 pleasure nubs
and intense vibrations to maximize the fun.
- Big O Multi-Stage Vibrating Ring
The Big O Multi-Stage Vibrating Penis Ring auto-cycles through nine stages of pressure and sensations, lasting up to 80 minutes. With the added clit ticklers and stretchy nubbed ring, this affordable penis ring is great for any beginner.
- The Screaming O Penis Ring
The Ring O is in most cases made of silicone, so it’s soft and comfortable while still adjustable and snug.
Silicone rings are best for beginners because there’s more leeway with the fit, as opposed to penis rings made of metal.
- Lelo Tor 2 Penis Ring
Tor 2 is fully rechargeable and waterproof and can be worn with the vibrator on top of your partner’s shaft or below,
so depending on your favorite position, you’ll always be able to feel the bennies.
There are six settings and the toy is made of silky-smooth silicone so you’re at less risk of catching skin in weird places.
- Buddy Ring Toyfriend
This bolo-tie-style ring features an easy-to-adjust button to slide for the perfect fit.
With this type of ring, you can also put it on while your partner is fully erect and adjust accordingly.
- Stainless Steel Donut Cock Ring
This metal ring is made of 1.75-inch stainless steel, so it’ll add significant heft into his penis ring experience.
It’s sized to fit behind testicles snugly, and the stainless steel means it’s perfect for temperature play.
When your partner puts the ring on, you want to make sure they’re using plenty of lube to get the ring on and off.
Otherwise, it could pull at the skin or pubic hair, and that’s a recipe for pain and disaster.
Lube won’t make the ring fall off if it’s the right size—snug but not uncomfortably tight—and will just help eliminate any friction that could irritate the skin.
If you’re using your own lube, make sure it’s not silicone-based—as silicone lubes should never be used with silicone toys.
I am always a fan of double penetration, so you can try taking your cock ring out for a spin.
These cock rings will help you play like a boss no matter what kind of sex act you’re performing:
- Cock ring butt plug combo
A butt plug and cock ring combo, like the Ass-Gasm Cockring Plug, is exactly what it sounds like.
A cock ring attached to a butt plug.
This ring is shaped for P-spot stimulation for those looking to master the art of giving prostate orgasms.
There are similar designs (like this one) with and without vibration that can also be used to stimulate the G-spot.
- Anal bead cock rings
Still, on the subject of anal play, an anal bead cock ring is made of flexible silicone and has a beaded end that can be inserted into the anus or vagina during penetration.
That’s your partner’s anus or vagina or yours if you’re playing solo.
- Double the vibe
Double-ended cock rings have two vibrating bullets attached for double the pleasure for both parties.
That means two times the vibration for the cock, balls, clit, and anus/perineum.
- Cage cock rings
Not the torture device it sounds like, I promise!
These are soft and stretchy cock rings are worn over the balls and the shaft so
the ridges can be enjoyed during penetration while a small exterior vibe works magic
on the clit at the same time. Need a visual? Check this one out online.
