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.

Despite what many people believe, PVC clothing and latex clothing are not exactly the same thing, although both are great for giving a shiny, figure-hugging look.
PVC (or polyvinylchloride, or vinyl) is a plastic polymer that's used to coat fabric to create a glossy, waterproof surface, whereas latex is a form of rubber that creates a more restrictive feeling. PVC makes a great cheap alternative to both latex and leather, has a much lower risk of causing an allergic reaction, and is often found in fetish or BDSM-inspired outfits.
But how do you know what is the best PVC outfit for you? Keep reading for our expert tips and top recommendations.

Teddy Babes are classified as a high-end, realistic sex doll but in reality they are much more than a means for sexual fulfilment. Instead of cold plastic, rubber or silicone skin, Teddy Babes have soft and velvety plush fabric. Instead of solid plastic or air filling their bodies, they are packed full of squeezable poly-fil fibres.
The primary function of a Teddy Babe is cuddling and each doll has been specifically built to be tactile, soft and warm to the touch - an ingenious and innovative idea in a market that places importance on climactic potential above all else. To be clear, Teddy Babes are realistic love dolls and they have a penetrable vagina, but they work in different ways to your average blow-up doll and are nowhere near as ‘lifeless’ as a silicone sex doll.
The varied fan base certainly mirror this sentiment and a quick search for Teddy Babes online will lead you into various forums where you’ll discover how these dolls evolve into so much more than a large male masturbator.
