By: JC Ways

Cock rings give you bigger erections, make you last longer, and make sex feel better.

The best cock rings are great for ED (erectile dysfunction) too.

Need I say more?

Still, you need to use these unique sex aids carefully, as they do restrict blood flow to your penis, so read on for our top tips and tricks and safety 101.

We also spill our top 3 best cock rings of all time. You’ll be back in the sack in no time.

Let’s get to it!

First Off, What Is a Cock Ring?

A cock ring (sometimes called a “dick ring” or “penis ring”) is a circular band that wraps snugly around your penis, usually behind the testicles.

It traps blood in your penis, giving you a bigger and harder erection by restricting blood flow.

Not only will a cock ring help your erection last longer, but it also can delay ejaculation, heighten sensitivity, and make orgasms feel more powerful.

They can also be used to help with ED.

6 Different Types of Cock ring

While penis rings all do basically the same thing (restrict blood flow to the cock), there are some different types that you might want to try, from vibrating to stainless steel penis rings.

1. Vibrating Cock Rings

Vibrating cock rings turn your dick into a human vibrator – great for sex with female partners. The toy provides clitoral stimulation for her and penis stimulation for him.

The vibration feels awesome for your cock too – it shakes your cock’s shaft down to your prostate for deeper, stronger orgasms during sex.

2. Adjustable Cock Rings

Using cock rings can be scary at first, especially if you’re inexperienced. How loose or how tight should you have it? How can you even know?

Adjustable cock rings have a soft loop that can be loosened or tightened, usually with a tightening bead. This makes them ideal for newbies or guys who know just how tight they want it.

3. Anal Cock Rings

There are some couples out there that like to take a slightly different approach to their love-making. This is why there are also cock rings which are designed specifically for anal play. Some people might also incorproate these sex toys into BDSM.

They’re definitely one of the more extreme sex toys on this list.

4. Cock Rings Designed For couples

Many of these toys are designed exclusively with couples in mind, aiming to provide massage or stimulation for penises AND clitorises. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your bedroom time, these are the best cock rings for you.

5. Metal Cock Rings

Effortlessly cool, the metal d-ring is usually reserved for experienced guys who know the girth of their penis. Metal d-rings will firmly grasp your penis tightly with little room to wiggle, so they maximize the effects when having sex.

They also look super cool.

6. Silicone Cock Rings

Silicone penis rings are made to be soft and stretchy so they easily fit over the shaft of the penis and apply a gentler pressure that will expand as your erection grows.

Silicone is one of the best sex toy materials around – it’s stretchy, it’s hygienic, and it’s super easy to clean.

Which Cock Ring Should I Buy? 5 Factors

The fit is key when choosing a cock ring. We can talk about vibrations and steel and gimmicks all night long, but if it don’t fit, you must acquit.

In other words, an ill-fitting cock ring will hurt, so make sure you measure the girth of your ERECT penis before buying anything.

Here are 5 things to consider:

1. How stretchy do you want it?

Do you want stretchy silicone or stiff stainless steel? Different levels of stretchiness have different effects on your penis, but it’s better to go for the stretchy silicone rings if you’re not super-experienced.

2. Do you want it extra tight?

While the penis ring needs to be tight enough that you feel its benefits, it shouldn’t be so tight that it’s painful or uncomfortable to wear. Err on the side of looseness until you know what tightness works best for you.

3. What textures do you like?

Cock rings come in a variety of styles and textures. Many have bumps, ridges, and nubs which are designed to increase pleasure. Some guys also prefer the feel of cold steel to warm plastic. It’s all about personal taste!

Stainless steel cock rings can actually be cooled down or warmed up in bowls of water to create unique sensations. Our Temperature Play Guide has more information.

4. Do you want it to vibrate?

Vibrating cock rings are popular cock rings as they help the man to last longer and also increase the pleasure for both partners. Many vibrating cock rings are designed specifically for men having sex with women.

5. Any other features?

Do you want a vibrating cock ring that’s waterproof? Do you want a penis ring which also fits over the testicles? There are 100s of unique cock ring designs made from all kinds of sex toy materials.

How To Use A Cock Ring

First things first, you need to make sure that you choose the right size.

Most cock rings are made from a stretchy material that’s one-size-fits-all (essentially), but if you’re after stiffer cock rings like steel, you need to measure the girth of your ERECT penis.

We highly recommend using a ton of lube with your erection ring. Without lube, you might find that the ring snags uncomfortably on the skin. This is true for stretchy rings too.

A lubed penis will make things much easier and will allow you to delicately slide the erection ring down your penis and into position.

How to put on a cock ring

Move the cock ring down your penis whilst it is flaccid. It should move down the shaft and rest just in front of your balls (unless it is a cock and balls ring).

The cock ring, when in place, should feel snug against your penis, but it should also feel that there is room to grow. As you get an erection, you will feel the pressure of the ring naturally pulling tighter.

How to put on a cock-and-balls ring

If you do want to try out a cock and balls ring, then you are going to need to make sure that you lube up your balls AND your cock before you put it in place.

Push your testicles through the ring one at time and adjust slightly for comfort. Once they’re both in place, make sure your put your flaccid penis through too.

You may find that your scrotum is a little swolen after using a cock-and-balls ring, but this should go away after a short period of time.

Penis Ring Safety

So, these rings that squeeze the crap out of your penis… are they safe?

If you choose the right size and follow the instructions carefully, a penis ring should be safe to use. However, it’s recommended that you wear them for a maximum of 20 minutes.

If you feel any discomfort or pain during use, or you notice bruising after you have taken off your cock ring, then you might want to give them a break for a little while or buy a different type of cock ring.

If you’re worried about safety, go for a stretchy silicone dick ring. It’s the safest option for an erection ring.

How To Take Off A Cock Ring

Silicone cock rings

If you’ve got a silicone cock ring, you’ll be pleased to know that they’re very easy to take off. Simply stretch it out and pull it up gently from the shaft of your penis, allowing normal bloodflow to resume.

Metal or plastic cock rings

If you have decided to use a metal or plastic cock ring instead, then it is important that you wait until your penis has returned to its normal flaccid state before you attempt to take the ring off. You might also want to use some extra lube to help slide it off.

As you can see, there is so much more to cock rings that meets the eye, especially the best cock rings, which feel as good as they look.  They are definitely a great sex toy for guys, or anyone with a penis, and worth experimenting with.

    I have been wearing and using cockrings for 15 years and I have tried many. I’m 8X6 and always commando and I’m usually in grey sweats. Turned on by how cockrings enhance and display everything. The combined weight of everything feels so good as I’m walking, everything swings very nicely. I get looks from all guys, which turns me on even more. I wear mine on the tighter side which makes everything more heavy. A coworker used to call me the lord of the rings when I would wear the three steel rings, one around the base of my shaft, one around my sac and the third around everything.
    I absolutely LOVE cockrings.

  • Thomas Martinez says:

    I liked what I saw and really want to get a few different cockrings want to know if you have a catalogue of male sex toys.

  • Malcomm Finn says:

    I am pleased with mens cock ring. I would like to suggest mens g-string underwear too for comfort after wearing mens cock ring after sex. Erogenos.com offers mens gstring at affordable prices.

  • Keith says:

    I once purchased two plastic cock clips which slide onto the base. It presses down on the top of the shaft to suppress blood flow on a vein that carries blood out. I like that it’s open on bottom to not block the urethra, and I love that it’s open on one side so it’s easily removed and reapplied without pulling out.

    But over the years, both have gotten lost, and I can’t find where to purchase them again. If anyone can tell me where to obtain replacements, I would be most grateful!!

    • Ron says:

      Noticed your year and a half old comment on One Dick Ring to Rule Them All. Though I’d suggest the new Omegaflex Open Ring as a replacement for your lost clips. It doesn’t constrict the urethra. Check it out.
