    Lovehoney BASICS Vibrating Waterproof Cock Ring

    Whether it’s a night out on the lash drinking £1 pints, or pulling an all-nighter to finish that last minute essay, it's safe to say students know a thing or two about staying up all night.

    But what about staying power in the bedroom? Have you got what it takes to be the last man standing, or are you flat out before the party’s even started?

    Stop being a lightweight and give your manshaft an ego boost with one of the simplest, yet most effective sex toys on the market: The humble cock ring. Oh-so easy to use, cock rings are a fantastic way to boost what nature gave you, without taking herbal remedies or losing sensation with delay sprays.

    A cock ring works by preventing blood from flowing away from your penis, allowing you to perform at your full potential.You’ll benefit from a bigger, stronger erection that’s more pronounced and vascular, as well as delayed ejaculation for longer-lasting bonking.

    Not a Hobbit? No Worries...

    You don't need to have hairy feet or be mates with a wizard to master this ring, so relax and read our handy guide to discover how to put this precious on your precious.

    A cock ring (also know as 'a stamina ring', 'a love ring', or 'a penis ring') is easy to wear and you'll notice the benefits almost immediately. It should feel snug, but not uncomfortable, and you should always use a little water-based lube when wearing a cock ring to make fit and positioning easy.

    Cock rings should be put on while you're flaccid (not erect) and should sit at the very base of your penis. As you become harder you'll notice the ring will become more snug, and your erection will look more (ahem) eager than usual.

    A cock and ball ring (that is, a ring that sits around your shaft and balls) should also be put on while you're flaccid. You'll need to put the ring around your balls first, followed by your penis. Put plenty of lube on the inside of the ring and yourself to make this easier. Slip one ball through the hoop, followed by the second and once both balls are inside the ring, slide the head of your penis through so that it surrounds your entire package.

    Some cock and ball rings feature 2 rings (one for your penis and one for your balls or penis and balls) to give you the benefit of both designs in one toy.

    Vibrating cock rings are available in both single and double ring designs and feature a vibrating unit that heightens stimulation for you and your partner. Most have a textured, forward facing vibrator that stimulates her clitoris during sex, while others focus stimulation towards your nuts for solo thrills.

    Before you jump straight into using your cock ring for sex, we recommend you 'try it for size' on your own first. Not only will this ensure you have the right size cock ring for your penis but it'll give you more confidence when you come to use it with a partner, and an idea of what to expect when you 'put a ring on it'.


    Ding Dong...

    What to expect: It's perfectly normal for your penis to look more enlarged, swollen and vascular while wearing a cock ring. In addition, because a cock ring restricts blood flow from your penis, it can also have more of a red blush to it than usual. The head of your penis will be more pronounced, giving you a distinct coronal ridge and your entire erection will be more rigid and strong.

    What NOT to expect: At no point should your cock ring feel painful or distractingly uncomfortable. If you can see visible narrowing of the penis where the cock ring sits or a very red or blueish tone to your erection, remove the cock ring straight away as this means it's too tight. A cock ring that's too tight can do more damage than good, so it's never worth the risk.

    Sometimes it can take a few attempts to find the right ring for you so we've outlined some of our top selling cock rings to help you get started.
