Playing With Cock Rings

What are cock rings?

A cock ring is a toy for the boy. It is used to help men maintain their erection. The penis is composed of spongy tissue that swells up with blood when aroused. A cock ring can help trap the blood within those tissues and can create a longer lasting or more firm erection. Some versions can be worn around the base of the penis and others go around the penis and scrotum.

Cock rings can be made of different materials like rubber, silicone, and metal. I recommend that you start out your play with a material that is able to stretch and have some give. I’m sure many people have heard horror stories about having to take a late night trip to the ER to get it removed because it is too tight. Since you do not know how your, or your partners, body will respond, it is important for you to be able to safely remove the ring if need be. Once you get to know your body, you can start playing with firmer materials like metal and wood.

How do I use them?

With stretchy cock rings, the ring is stretched over the penis (and sometimes the scrotum) and situated at the base of the shaft. When using a rigid cock ring, a different approach is taken. While flaccid, or soft, the testicles should be fed through the hole of the cock ring, and then the scrotum can be pulled through along with the penis. As with most things in sex, lubrication is essential. And with lubrication, the ring can be removed more easily when finished.

Variations

Cock rings can come in more than just plain circular shape. Some cock rings have a vibrator built into them. The entire ring and vibrate or just a specific part. Depending on the location, this can be beneficial to the wearer or their partner. Popular cock rings come with an added clitoral stimulator which can help a woman reach orgasm during intercourse. Other variation can include the ‘dolphin’ shape which stimulates the wears testicles and his body as well. A slightly kinky take on a cock ring variation is the triple crown style cock ring. This style prevents the testicles from rising during orgasm which can intensify the feeling to the wearer.

Safety

It is recommended that cock rings are not worn for more than 30 minutes and if you feel any sort of numbing or discomfort, you immediately remove the device. Serious damage can be inflicted to your genitals if you have an erection for too long and when in doubt, seek medical attention. It is better to be safe than sorry, especially when dealing with your genitals. Also, if you have pubic hair, be careful when sliding off the ring because it could get tangled in the ring. This is another instance where a shot of lube can help you along.

So on your next trip to your favorite adult store; why not try a cock ring? They are very affordable and come in many varieties for both you and your partner. Happy sexing, and remember, when it comes to sex, everything is OK here.
