    I’d say half an hour maximum - but preferably only 20 minutes. Cock rings can be great for sustaining erections, but dangerous if left on for too long.

    I’d say half an hour absolute maximum - but preferably only 20 minutes. Cock rings can be great for sustaining erections, but they are dangerous if left on for too long.

    When one is in place it traps the blood in your penis – hence keeping your erection for longer - but obviously there isn’t any circulation of fresh blood. And when oxygen-rich blood isn’t able to circulate around your bits for any sustained length of time, your penile tissue gradually starts to die… not exactly the effect you’re after.

    Lots of lube will enable easier removal of a cock ring, and avoid rings made from unbroken metal as they’re much harder to get off in a hurry. Don’t use a cock ring at all if you’re diabetic, have nerve or circulatory problems, or you’re on any anticoagulant or blood-thinning medication - including aspirin.

      You can get cock rings that you can release and then re-tighten (adjustable ones) during sex play so you maintain erection without loosing feeling or blood flow for too long.

      i still wouldn't recommend them for much over 30 mins (and absoloutly no more than 40) but if you and your significant other are in the moment this can help prolong the pleasure without prolonging the risks (i am fortunate in that my now partner and I don't use cock rings but this info proved usful to me with my now very ex)
