Put A Ring On It: A Beginner's Guide To Choosing Your First Cock Ring

Shopping Blog

Of all the various sexy toys and devices available to modern men, few devices are as diverse and versatile as the humble cock ring. These disarmingly simple objects, which are placed over the base of the penis to prevent blood from draining away from your erection, can greatly enhance your pleasure and performance in the bedroom, and are equally useful if you wish to maintain your erection for longer, not suffer from embarrassing erectile dysfunction, or want to experiment with some mild bondage and/or BDSM with your partner.

However, if you're new to the field of safe, pleasurable cock ring usage, choosing a cock ring can be challenging and more than a little intimidating, especially when cock rings are made in so many shapes and sizes and from so many different materials. To help guide you on your first foray into the field or erection enhancement, keep the following guidelines in mind:

Choose a ring made from flexible materials

If you've done your research into cock ring usage, you've probably come across more than one horror story about the dangers of leaving a cock ring on for too long, and it is true that irresponsible use of a cock ring can cause some serious damage to your member. However, using a cock ring is perfectly safe as long as you take the ring off if and when you start to feel pain or discomfort in your penis.

To that end, the cock ring beginner should choose a ring made from flexible, stretchy materials, such as rubber, latex or silicone. These rings provide the tightness required to increase engorgement of your erect penis, but can be swiftly and easily removed by the most inexperienced ring user. Cock rings made of rigid materials, such as stainless steel or polished stone, can be more difficult to remove if your penis becomes overly engorged, and are aimed at the experienced ring user who knows his limits.

Size your ring correctly

It's always tempting to exaggerate your size a little, but accurate measurements of your penis are a necessity if you wish to delve into the world of cock rings. Choosing a ring that is too small can cause pain and potentially damage the shaft of your penis, while an overly-large cock ring won't provide the tension necessary to enhance your erections.

There are mathematical formulae that will help you calculate the ideal size of your cock ring down to several decimal places, but since the vast majority of cock rings are sold with minimum and maximum measurements this cock calculus is rarely necessary. Simply measure the circumference of the base of your penis when fully engorged using a flexible tape measure, and choose a ring designed with your size in mind. If you intend to wrap your ring around your penis and testicles simultaneously, choose a ring designed for these purposes and up your size accordingly.

Consider accessories

If you just want to use a cock ring to beef up your size or combat ED, you'll probably want to opt for a simple, unobtrusive ring, but if you're feeling a little more adventurous many cock rings come with added accessories that are safe for ring novices and experts alike.

Rings with attached perineal simulators are a popular choice, and are specially shaped to rub against your perineum during sex for added stimulation. You might also consider vibrating rings; they are excellent for increasing the pleasure of both parties during penetrative sex, and many have added protrusions designed to directly stimulate your partner's clitoris or prostate. If you choose one of these enhanced enhancers, make sure the flexibility of the ring itself is not compromised to maintain safety. For more information, contact companies like Club X.
