Many folks equate sex toys with vibrators, and vibrators with women.But men enjoy all kinds of sex toys (including vibrators) and one ofthe staples of their toy box is the cock ring. A great toy for solo orpartner play, the cock ring (also known as a penis ring)  is astrip of material or a continuous O-ring designed to restrict the bloodfrom flowing out of the penis, which can prolong an erection. Why weara cock ring? Lots of reasons! They temporarily create more sensitive,intense and hard erections, and can even help some men delayejaculation. (Of course, everybody is different, and not all menrespond to cock rings the same way. For some, the intense sensations causedby the cock ring make them come faster.) Will cock rings make yourpenis bigger? Sorry guys, but not in the long run. They may enlarge ittemporarily, but repeated use of cock rings won't result in anypermanent changes.

Pick a Style, Any Style

There are many kinds of cock rings, but if you're new to cock rings,you'll want to choose one that's adjustable and easy to remove.

  • Cock rings that fasten. Basic leather or nylon cock rings are great for beginnersbecause they're easy to put on and can be removed in (literally) asnap. Those with snaps, such as the 5-Snap Leather Cock Ring, can fit a bit more securely, while those withVelcro closures, such as the Velcro Leather Cock Ring, are very adjustable and especially easy to remove.
  • Continuous, O-ring-style cockrings. The less expensive styles like the Nitrile Cock Rings  aregreat forfirst-time users. They?re not size-specific (and despite their small size, they do stretch a lot), andthey're not too difficult to get on. Some, like the Black Megastretch,are adorned with small nubswhich can give some clitoralstimulation if worn during intercourse.
  • Vibrating cock rings. These offer an extra buzz to the penis ortesticles and are also great fun during partner sex. They're typically ringswith a small vibrating attachment, like the translucent Diamond Ring vibe or the Sonic Ring Kit.
  • Cock rings with fancy features. Experienced cock ring fans can delight in more complicated leatherrings that include multiple straps, testicle separators, or weights, aswell as rings made of inflexible materials like aluminum.  

Get it On, then Get Off!

  1. Prep your gear. If you're using a stretchy O-ring like the ones found in the 4-ring Pack, you might wantto increase its diameter by putting it over a shampoobottle for a few hours. Masturbate or fantasize in order to perk upyour penis, as cock rings are easier to put on if you're semi-erect.
  2. Lube up. Particularly if you're using a rubber or seamless O-ring,put some lube on your penis and balls, so the cock ring will slide onmore comfortably.
  3. Location, location, location. Cock rings typically are wornaround the base of the cock and the balls. You can just wear it on theshaft (and by all means experiment), but cock rings function the mosteffectively when secured around both the scrotum and cock.
  4. Put cock rings on when you're semi-erect. If you've got a solidcock ring, first pull the loose skin of your scrotum through, then dropone testicle through, then the other, and finally push your penisthrough. If you're using a strip of material that fastens, like the Velcro Leather Cock Ring or the Vibrating Leather Cock Ring, just gently lift your balls and fasten the striparound thepenis and the balls, so it's resting between your genitals and therest of your body.
  5. Masturbate. Once you?ve become accustomed to the sensationsyour cock ring creates, try masturbating.  If your ring is thevibrating type, you can experiment with pointing the vibrating portionon your testicles for an extra buzz.
  6. Make a statement. Get into the fantasy surrounding your cockring. Whether you're showing off a festive adornment as part ofa striptease, wearing it under your clothes to show off yourpackage, or telling your lover you're proud to be submissiveby wearing a locking cock ring, play up the erotic potential of yourtoy.

    Cock rings are fun for silicone dicks, too! Strap a colorful or sexy leather ring on a dildo to dress it up.

  7. Share it with a friend. Vibrating cock rings like the Petal Ring and the Orbit Ringvibe were designed to offer female partners clitoral stimulation duringintercourse. Position the vibrator near the top of your cock (or thedildo if you've got a strap-on) so that during intercourse it bumps upagainst her clitoris. Keep your body down parallel to hers and tryslow, shallow thrusts to make sure she receives consistent contact withthe vibrator. Or try it with her on top, moving in more of a grindingthan up-and-down motion.
  8. Accessorize. Cock rings lend themselves well to other sex toy combinations. Try using a penis pump first and then applying a cockring, or adding a butt plug to your masturbation session.
  9. Get it off. In general, it's best to take off your cock ringafter about twenty minutes. Pay attention to the penis; it should neverturn cold or go numb (clear signs you've had the cock ring on toolong).To remove a solid O-ring style cock ring, you need to be onlysemi-erect so the ring is loose enough to feed your dick and balls backthrough.(Applying ice can help take down a stubborn erection.)  To clean it try our Babeland Toy Cleaner.

Worn to look hot and ready for sex, or just to feel good, cock ringscan double your pleasure and create a sexy package?think of them asform and function in one!
