What is a Cock Ring Used For?

By Ksenia Sobchak

Cock rings may have become popular recently, but you will be surprised to know that they’ve been used by horny men since the Ancient Greeks (and we all know how horny that lot were!) Archaeologists have found the remains of cock rings made from ivory, and there’s even evidence to say that goat’s eyelids have been used (possibly the world’s first ‘stretchy’ cock ring?) Thankfully, cock rings are now made from more ‘normal’ material, and you will find versions made from various rubbers, silicone, plastics, steel and leather.

Despite all the different materials used (and were used in the past), they are all used for two main purposes; to keep you erect for as long as possible, and create the hardest, most bulging penis you can muster. Let’s face it, is there anything more pleasing to a man (and his woman) than a rock hard cock?

All cock rings work in the same way. You slide on the cock ring when you are still soft (we recommend plenty of lube). Then, as your partner gets you more excited (or your brain goes to wherever it needs to get to, if you are indulging in solo play), your cock will become hard and thick, increasing in girth, tightening the grip that the cock ring has on your shaft. As you put the cock ring on when you were soft, blood is allowed to flow into your penis as you get hot under the collar. Now this blood remains trapped in your penis and is not allowed to flow back out. It’s this that makes cock rings so popular.

Once you got a great big hard on, it will remain there, as the cock ring provides just enough constriction to stop you going soft again. Now, here’s the friendly warning – if you are a beginner, we recommend you do not go for the rigid cock rings, such as metal ones, straight away. It can be easy to misjudge how firm the cock ring will be when you are fully erect, and metal cock rings have no give whatsoever. So be adventurous, but be safe too!

Some men like to take things further by using rings that go around their testicles. This restricts you from coming too soon, and doubles the effect of the cock ring. You can simply use two cock rings, ensuring the larger one goes over your balls. Or you can buy double cock rings, where you have two linked rings to slide over your shaft and balls. Either way, if you want to last the longest you possibly can, with a vein-popping penis that’s sure to please the other half, then cock rings are a must.

A great beginners set of cock rings is the Nitrile Cock Ring Set (3 Pack). First of all, these are super stretchy, making them easy to put on and use. Secondly, there are three diameters, 1.5, 2 and 2.2 inches, which means you can experiment with how firm you want a cock ring to feel (we recommend starting with the largest diameter). You can also use the largest ring to experiment with using around your testicles. And finally, if you have a latex allergy, these cock rings are made from a skin safe rubber material called nitrile. After all, you definitely don’t want an allergic reaction, it’s simply not the kind of stimulation you want!

If you really like the idea of a double cock ring, try the Steely Stretchy Double Cock Ring, two stretchy silicone rings to encircle your shaft and your balls. This will keep you rock hard well after she begs you to stop!
