Basic Guide to Cock Rings (Can They Make You Last Longer?)

Basic-Guide-to-Cock-Rings-(Can-They-Make-You-Last-Longer)

When we talk about cock rings, we refer to a circular toy that snugly fits around the base of the penis. Its job is to restrict blood flow around the area, thereby making your cock feel fuller and harder.

These are one of the most popular sex toys; so much so, that there are several styles with different features.

But do cock rings (a.k.a. penis rings) actually work? And can they make you last longer in bed?

It depends! Everybody is different, and every body is different, too. So, before spending your money, educate yourself on the various options regarding how they work and how to use them well.

Reach Your Full Potential with a Cock Ring

Its mechanism is pretty simple. The ring sits at the base of the penis, which causes arteries to dilate, thereby keeping the penile shaft hard and making it difficult for the wearer to attain an orgasm. The veins that lead away from the penis likewise constrict and trap blood in the shaft, which then leads to an erection. This erection is often harder and lasts longer than usual, making it perfect for men who may have a hard time staying hard or those who just like the sensation.

Are Cock Rings Safe for the Wearer?

Absolutely.  To use (with restrictions), and to ensure that they do not cause you any harm, follow these simple steps:

  • Make Sure It Fits Well

If this is your first cock ring, get an adjustable one. In case it doesn’t fit well, and you feel a pinching or uncomfortable sensation, you may need to move on to another option.

  • Do Not Wear It for Too Long

Overdoing anything isn’t good for your health, so you should take off the ring after 20 minutes. Your penis is sensitive and leaving it on for too long can damage your shaft. In case of any pain, numbness, or if your penis changes colour while the ring is on, remove it immediately.

  • Choose Body-Safe Rings

If you are allergic to silicone or latex, avoid rings made of these materials. Also, do not use silicone lubes along with your cock ring. When it comes to sex toys, be extra careful as they are crafted with different materials.

  • Try Manscaping & Use a Lube

Keeping your body hair intact is your personal choice! However, while wearing a cock ring, you may benefit from reduced friction by manscaping.

Before trying the ring on, trim your pubic hair to prevent it from getting pulled. Also, use a good water-based lubricant to help you slide it off.

  • Maintain Hygiene with Proper Washing

Always clean your sex toys to avoid bacterial build-up and ensure the elimination of lubes, vaginal secretions, and more. Use a good quality toy cleaner along with warm water before and after every use.

As long as you can follow the above-mentioned points while using a cock ring, you will not have to worry about its safety.

Types of Penis Rings

You will find different kinds of penis rings with different instructions for use. However, it’s always best to put the ring on while flaccid, with lube, applied thoroughly on the base of the penis as well as on the ring.  You can also find adjustable rings in case you aren’t sure about the size. Some rings also have bumps and ticklers designed to improve the overall sensations during partnered sex.

  • Silicone Rings: If you are a beginner, you might want to get a simple ring that is. These are easy to use, clean, and cost-effective. Make sure to use water-based lubes only with these silicone toys.
  • Vibrating Cock Rings: A vibrating cock ring can provide you with an extra buzz for better sensations. It’s also amazing for partnered sex. The buzz stimulates both partners and women, the deeper the penetration, the stronger the vibrations on the clitoris and vulva.
  • Lasso Rings: Lasso style adjustable rings are used generally for masturbation. Just fit it tightly around the penis and release the pressure just before ejaculating! These rings can also help improve the strength of ejaculation and make your orgasms more intense. If you wish to increase your stamina and endurance during couples play, practice with a lasso ring!

Cock rings can truly amp up your bedroom fun. They help maintain your erection longer and add extra spice to your sex life, whether with your partner or alone. Remember, experimentation is key to keeping sex interesting, and a cock ring can instantly make things hotter between the sheets!
