How to Choose & Use a Cock Ring

Cock Rings, like the name suggests, are rings for men to wear.

Or more precisely; For men to wear around the shaft, at the bottom of his penis or at the base behind his scrotum (ie his cock and balls go through the ring).

If you are one of the 70-80% of women who don't orgasm through penetration alone (yes, you read that right - only around 30% of women can orgasm during intercourse with no 'added' clitoral stimulation), then something worn by him, which may just stimulate your clitoris whilst he's inside you, has benefits!

History Of Cock Rings

We have the Chinese to thank for the first cock rings, documented around 1200, and ingeniously, if somewhat squeamishly made of dried goat's eyelids! Flexible enough to be tied around the base of the penis, the eyelashes would brush and flutter in use. Believed to be used by Chinese Royalty who, with multiple wives and concubines to satisfy, probably required erection-strengthening help.

But it wasn't  just the Chinese. Early cock rings or cuffs ( to go around the scrotum) made from leather, wood, beads and stone appear to have been fashioned throughout world history and geography.

In the Far East, cock rings were created for decoration and status symbols as well as practical adornments. Models ( usually shaped like dragons and serpents - go figure!)  from 1600's were carved from jade and ivory and later they were forged with precious metals.

Different Types of Cock Rings

Cock rings may come in a baffling array of shapes and sizes, but essentially there are just TWO types of cock ring : simple and vibrating.

Each offers a specific function/benefit; one for him and one for you.

 

  • Simple Cock Ring - Benefits for Him:

Metal Cock Ring £8 Metal Cock Ring £8

Endless Cock Ring £7 Endless Cock Ring £7

A simple ring, such as metal cock ring (tightest) and silicone cock rings (medium) are better suited to the main job of squeezing and restricting blood flow.

These types *may* stimulate your clitoris, but that isn't their main function.

A simple cock ring squeezes/puts pressure around the base of his shaft, thus keeping the blood in his penis and, to different degrees (depending on how tight the squeeze) enhancing his erection.

The equation is simple:

  • The harder/more inflexible the cock ring = the tighter the squeeze.
  • The softer /stretchier the cock ring = the lighter the squeeze.

Metal cock rings and ones made from  semi-precious material  are the most restrictive and should be used by experienced cock ring users and only then for short periods, as once in position, they cannot be taken off until the penis has gone flaccid.

Whichever material a cock ring is made from,  we don’t recommend wearing one for longer than 20 minutes anyway (less if it feels uncomfortable).

A simple cock ring can be worn around the base of his penis or behind the scrotum.

  • Cock & Ball Ring

Cock and Ball Ring Cock and Ball Ring

The slightly more advanced version is cock & ball ring - these come with an extra ring which fits snugly around his party bag (ball-sack). Slip the smaller ring over the semi-erect shaft, and then gently slip the larger ring over and around the party bag.

For this version, a trimmed man-bush makes sense,  otherwise it's likely that your man will feel the pinch!

Cock Ring Cage

Cock Ring Cage £12 Cock Ring Cage £12

A cock ring with several rings attached to each other is designed to imprison the wearer, amping up his pleasure by restricting him. As his erection grows firmer, the rings will feel tighter and tighter, forcing him to control his excitement. Most often used in BDSM and fetish play, cock ring cages look stunning on and feel deliciously constricting when worn. If you enjoy exploring submissiveness, a cock ring cage could be the right toy.

Incredibly innovate, RO Zen cock ring offers snugness for shaft and balls, plus a zingy butt plug for his ultimate pleasure. For men who enjoy exploration and thrilling sensations in all areas, this cock ring is just heaven!

With a cock ring as exciting as this, we doubt he'll know whether to thrust forwards tor buck backwards!

 

 

  • Clitoral Stimulating Cock Ring:  The Benefit for Her...

The main function of a cock ring with added clitoral simulator is to stimulate the women during intercourse. They will add a squeeze for him, but this is not their main job. This is why these type of cock rings come in softer materials such as silicone and elastomer (few women would get pleasure from hard metal banging against their clits!).

There are two different kinds of clitoral-stimulating cock ring: vibrating and non-vibrating .

Which ever kind you choose, they should all be worn the same way, ensuring the clitoral stimulator the best chance to do its job.

Slide the cock ring down the base of his semi-erect penis and position the clitoral stimulator at 12 o' clock (ie closest to his stomach).

We have to say *most* women prefer the vibrating kind – clitorises, in general *love* vibration and this is a great way to add discreet vibration during couples sex/intercourse.

 

  • Vibrating Cock Rings

Vibrating cock rings feature a bullet or motor at the top of the ring which is designed to thrill the clitoris during intercourse. They can range from offering single-use, single speed to ones with different vibrating patterns right through to luxury high-end toys.

Sh! LurveHeart Vibrating Ring £9 Sh! LurveHeart Vibrating Ring £9

My First Clit Cock Ring £9 My First Clit Cock Ring £9

Lelo Pino Luxury Vibrating Cock Ring Gift Set £119 Lelo Pino Luxury Vibrating Cock Ring Gift Set £119

Vibrating Cock Rings have a lot of pleasure to offer a female partner.

As we've mentioned, many (most!) women need some sort of clitoral stimulation in order to orgasm and a vibrating ring can certainly help with that during penetration.

It maybe tricky to get into the right position to ensure the vibration meets its target. We recommend women-on-top encounters; this way the female partner can just rock and grind her pelvis in the way that feels best for her!

Vibrating rings are usually stretchy, so will fit a range of sizes.

 

  • Extending & Expanding Cock Ring

Expanding Vibrating Ring 320 Expanding Vibrating Ring £20

Extending the pleasure! For times when a little extra length or width is required. An extending or expanding ring offers snugness for him, and thrilling vibration and a little extra width for her.

The stretchy rings slips easily over his shaft (semi-erect), and then you can work your way through all your favourite positions! We recommend adding a good dollop of lube before inserting - the extra girth can feel more filling than expected.

  • Cock Ring for Double Penetration

Double Diver Penetration Ring £28 Double Diver Penetration Ring £28

If double penetration is something that sounds like lots of fun to you, a cock ring with a built-in shaft could be just the thing.

His penis slips through the ring to provide vaginal penetration whilst the extra shaft delivers simultaneous anal penetration.

Though certainly not as popular as porn films would have us believe, the matchless feeling of fullness offered by double penetration is and can stimulate the G-Spot in ways

The stretchy cock ring slides over him, when he's semi-erect; essentially, his erection "grows" into the cock ring. The ring is firm enough to give him a snug squeeze around the base.

The best position for a double penetration cock ring is woman-on-top. This way you can lower yourself on to his penis and the anal shaft, and ensure the strong bullet vibrations are in the right place for clitoral stimulation. For beginners to DP, being on top gives you freedom and confidence to enjoy the sensations (rather than possibly being overwhelmed by them)  as depth and pace is at your own control.

Sh! Pure Lube £10 Lube enhances every kind of sex you have together...

 

Finally don't forget the lube. Lube enhances every kind of sexual activity and never more so than for cock rings! Lube will make a cock ring glide down to the base of his penis rather than drag its way...

From seductively sliding the cock ring into place to heightening the sensations of friction and vibration, with a drop or two of lube, your cock ring adventures will be sensual from the off...

Because most cock rings in our range are made from silicone, we would recommend water-based lubricant for cock-ring play.

 

What Materials are Cock Rings Made from?

Cock rings can be made from a variety of materials, all with their own benefits.

  • Silicone is soft, smooth and fairly stretchy. Offers a firm, snug squeeze around the shaft of his penis.
  • TPE is soft and very stretchy. Cheaper than silicone, it's a good option to start off with.
  • Metal or semi-precious stone offers a very firm, cool (temperature-wise) squeeze. These cock rings are often very beautiful, but are also rigid - it is this type in particular that should not be worn for too long. We wouldn't recommend them for beginners.

 

How to Keep Cock Rings Clean

The easiest way to clean a cock ring is to spritz with sex toy cleaner, rinse with warm water and leave to air dry. Anti-bacterial soap is also a good choice.

2-part cock rings (ie those with a removeable vibrating bullet) are best cleaned separately. Slide the bullet out from the ring and spritz or wipe clean with a cloth and soap. If the bullet is not waterproof, be careful not to get water inside. The *non-vibrating* portion of the cock-ring can then be totally submerged in hot soapy water. Those made of 100% Silicone can even be sterilized in boiling water or in the top rack of your dishwasher (!) although this really is going the extra mile and isn't necessary.

 

Sex Tips for Cock Rings

  • Lube is your friend when putting on a cock ring. Use plenty and it will slide down smoothly. It will also help with pubic hair pull!
  • A great position for clitoral stimulating cock-ring play is with you on top. Have him lie back wearing am cock ring with the vibrating element pointing towards his belly. Now hop on. Each ‘down stroke’ will provide the extra treat of vibration on your clitoris (and a trilling buzz for him too!)
  • Wrap two or more stretchy cock rings all the way up the shaft of his penis to create satisfying cock ring ridges for you to enjoy…
  • The LurveHeart Vibrating Cock Ring is such a neat, nifty vibrating cock ring that he can wear it under his clothes in readiness for later. If you get a quiet moment why not slide your fingers into his flies, flip the switch for a few seconds and watch him squirm..
  • The sensations on offer with the Happy Vibrating Cock Ring are pretty great when enjoyed as a complete toy - but why stop there? Slip the separate bullet vibrator out of the main cock ring and use it to stimulate both your special places: use the vibrator to massage his perineum - the super sensitive bit that runs from his balls to his bum. Then turn it onto you clitoris. When the time is right, slip the bullet back into the cock ring and enjoy!
