    Cock rings (otherwise known as penis rings or love rings) are one of the simplest sex aids around. They work by preventing blood from flowing back down the penis, which in turn helps to make erections feel harder and last longer than normal, making your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely.

    Some people choose a cock ring that fits on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will show you how to put on both kinds of cock ring.

    This guide explains how to put on a fixed, rigid cock ring. If you would like to know how to put on a stretchy, vibrating cock ring please read the How to Use a Vibrating Cock Ring guide.

    How to Use a Cock Ring or Penis Ring

    Tracey Cox EDGE Supreme Endurance Triple Stamina Ring SetCock rings are relatively easy to wear and use.  The ring should be tight but not so tight that it causes discomfort. Start by applying just a touch of water-based lubricant to the inside of the cock ring. This will make sure it can slide on smoothly and will make positioning easier.

    Cock rings should be put on while the penis is flaccid (not erect). You should find it easy to slide the ring on over the head and to the base of your shaft. Make sure that the cock ring rests at the base of the shaft. As you become erect, the ring should become tighter but not so tight that it causes discomfort.

    A cock and ball ring (a single ring that sits around both the testicles and the penis) should also be put on when you are flaccid (not erect). You will need to put the ring around the testicles first. Place one testicle through the ring followed by the second, leaving the ring sitting around the scrotum. You can then fold the head of your penis up through the ring. If you find it difficult, use some lubricant on the cock ring, testicles and penis to help guide them through.

    It is recommended that when you use a cock ring, you ‘try it for size’ before relying on it in the bedroom. Cock rings are supposed to restrict blood flow and give you a slightly enlarged look, pronouncing veins and giving the penis a red blush. The only restriction with your cock ring is not to wear it for too long. It is generally advised to remove the cock ring after half an hour and let the blood flow return to normal before giving it another go.

    Sometimes they are too tight to be good for you and you should check for warning signs to ensure you aren’t doing yourself any damage. If you can see visible narrowing of the penis where the cock ring sits or a very red or blueish colour to the penis, the cock ring should be removed as it is too tight. A larger cock ring or one made from softer materials should then be bought to replace it.

      Cock rings not only help with stamina and maintaining an erection, they look sexy and can provide some unbelievable sensations for both you and your man! They work by trapping blood in the penis making your erection even bigger, feel harder and be more sensitive to the touch.

      Rings can be made of a variety of different materials, most commonly leather, rubber, or silicone, though nylon and metal are also used either as the main component or part of the closure.
