    How to Measure Yourself for a Cock Ring

    by Lovehoney

    Cock rings are simple devices that help to maintain a harder and longer-lasting erection by restricting the blood flowing back down your penis, which in turn makes your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely. Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will tell you how to measure yourself for both kinds.

    Cock rings are measured by diameter. This is the measurement across the widest part of the hole in the ring. You want a cock ring with a diameter that's smaller than your personal measurements - this will ensure you have the constriction that you need. Start with something just a little smaller than your measurements, because the smaller you go the tighter the cock ring will be.

    Most cock rings are adjustable or have stretch to them to ensure a good fit, but to be sure it will fit perfectly you need to find out the diameter of your cock or cock and balls. You may be wondering how that’s translatable to your very 3D penis, but it’s easy to calculate and we'll show you how.

    How to Measure Yourself for a Cock Ring

    How to Measure Yourself for a Cock RingYou should measure yourself for a cock ring when you are erect. Measure around the very base of your penis, wrapping the tape measure around the bottom of your shaft. This will give you the circumference of your penis. Because our measurements are given in diameter, you need to divide your circumference measurement by 3.14 to get the diameter.

    If the circumference of your penis is inches…

    … you need a cock ring with a diameter smaller than 1.91 inches

    You should measure yourself when you are erect. To get a feel for where the ring will sit, grip around both your penis and testicles - behind the balls and as close to the body as you can. This is the area you want to measure. Wrap your tape measure around to get your circumference. Because our measurements are given in diameter, you need to divide your circumference measurement by 3.14 to get the diameter.

    How to Choose a Cock Ring

    Now that you have your measurement, you’re ready to start shopping. Once you have a shortlist of cock rings you'd like to try, you can make sure that your chosen cock rings will fit. Take a look at the specifics for each cock ring. You can compare your minimum diameter with the measurements given to check that the cock ring will fit.

    Most cock rings are adjustable or have stretch to them to ensure a good fit, so take a look at the minimum and maximum measurements to see if your measurement falls between them. If it does, the cock ring will fit you.

    Some cock rings aren’t stretchy or adjustable (such as those made from metal). A rigid cock ring will need to be 0.25 inches - 0.5 inches smaller than your own diameter measurement to provide a good fit without constricting you too much.

    Metal cock rings aren’t recommended for beginners as they provide much more constriction than those made from softer materials, meaning the sensation is very intense. With metal cock rings you do need to be experienced as they cannot be stretched and pulled off or cut off if you want to remove them in a hurry.
