If you’ve avidly researched the internet on the topic of sex toys, then you already know that there’s  an abundance of different gadgets out there for every fetish and kink. Among these toys, you have  a specific category called cock rings.

What is a cock ring? – you may ask.

Well, to be honest, it’s pretty much what it actually sounds like. It’s a ring-like device that you put  on the base of your penis to enhance your erection along with sustaining it.

Not Just For Pleasure

You might think that these devices are for sheer pleasure but in reality, they are more than just  simple accessories. A cock ring sex toy also has a lot to do with how erections work. Namely,  when you become aroused, blood flows to your penis, causing the shaft to become hard. And,  when you constrict the shaft with these rings, you prevent the blood from flowing back, but still  enabling it to rush in. What it basically does is help you achieve a better and bigger erection.

Using a Cock Ring

If you are new at this, don’t jump right into it. Experts advise taking it slow and first trying out elastic  or silicone versions that you can adjust. They can fit over the scrotum pretty well and can help you  with improving your orgasms as well.

On the other hand, you can also choose hard plastic or stainless steel options, but these are more  for those who already have experience with these toys. These rings are less flexible (or not at all)  and can feel really constricting, not to mention, they can get stuck as well. When that happens, you  might need to apply ice to your member and use dish soap to first alleviate the swelling and to then  slip it off. Unfortunately, this won’t always do the trick, and in some cases, the device needs to be  surgically removed.

You also have other options made out of glass and in some cases, they also come with a vibrating  motor to enhance the experience even more.

How To Use a Cock Ring – Pro Guide

First of all, you should read the user’s manual and strive for doing everything as instructed  because your toy might have particular features. However, there are also a few great tips that are  universally applicable.

For starters, make sure you put the toy on the base of your member securely. This will help you  prevent slippage, and the majority of the larger veins of your penis are here, meaning it will also  help to increase its effectiveness.

When you are using silicone devices, try your best to avoid silicone-based lubricants and opt for  water-based alternatives instead. Why? Simple. Silicone toys are known to wear down if you use  them together with silicone lubes.

Don’t forget that using lube, in general, will make to ring slip around so go easy on it at first and  see what works for you best.

Don’t have the toy overstay its welcome. Make sure not to wear it for too long. This might be the  most important rule of them all since restricting the blood flow for too long can put pressure on the

nerves and veins and can potentially damage them. As a rule of thumb, make sure to use it for no  longer than 30 minutes on each occasion and take it down immediately if you experience pain in  the area.

You can also put the rings around the testicles, but for those who are just starting out, we’d  recommend sticking to the basics.

Also, when you’ve managed to put the toy on and you’ve constricted the blood flow correctly, your  penis should look a little bigger than it actually does in its erect form. Once again, wearing a ring  shouldn’t be a painful experience, rather, they should feel snug.

When your penis becomes soft, the ring should slide off effortlessly

After you’re done using it, just wash it gently with water and soap and think about your next  session with your prized toy. Okay, this last one is optional but highly advised.

Stepping Up The Game

Some are very happy with their simple metal, glass, or silicone models and require no “next level”  technology to enhance the experience.

Others, however, may find that using a vibrating cock ring can intensify your masturbation experience by taking it to the next level.

Some of our members have reported that they have achieved their most intense orgasms using  vibrating cock rings.

Putting It All Together

All in all, these little gadgets are easy and simple to use and come with quite a few benefits. They  can improve your erections along with your orgasms if you use them properly.

Rings are great for your solo sessions and can also be incorporated in partner play. Frotting with a  vibrating cockring can be lots of fun.

Lastly, if you are on the market for a starter toy, make sure to go with more flexible options at first  so you avoid getting in trouble. Getting used to the feel of these rings comes pretty fast, so be  patient and start off slow, so you can have your fair share of fun without any unnecessary fuss for a  long time.
