1. How to Use a Vibrating Cock Ring

    Vibrating cock rings are a best-selling sex toy and tend to be one of the first toys couples try, and it's easy to see why.

    Just like non-vibrating cock rings, the vibrating versions reduce blood flow out of the penis, which can help boost size, hardness and stamina. Plus, the added vibrations stimulate your partner during sex.

    And despite the name, you don't even need a penis to enjoy one! Don't believe us? Take a look at our guide to making the most of your cock ring here.


    Our Top-Rated Vibrating Cock Rings

    1. What is a Cock Ring Made Out Of?

      Vibrating cock rings come in an astonishing range of styles.

      The most basic is a stretchy, single-use ring with a small bullet vibrator at the top, but there are also double rings that offer tandem constriction of the testicles as well as the shaft, and double or triple stimulators that also caress the perineum or testicles.

      Cock rings at the cheaper end of the scale tend to be made from skin-safe rubber, which is super-stretchy and suitable for use with both water and silicone-based lubricants.

      Mid-range materials include TPE and PVC. TPE is nice and stretchy but often contains latex, something to be aware of if you have sensitive skin or a specific allergy. PVC is less stretchy and more akin to silicone.

      Higher-end cock rings tend to be made from silicone, which is silky-smooth and hypoallergenic, but less supple than some materials. Silicone toys can only be used with water-based lubricant.


      How to Put on a Stretchy Cock Ring

      Absolute beginners will find a stretchier cock ring much easier to put on.

      Wait until you’re fully erect, apply a little water-based lube around the inside of the ring and stretch it out between your fingers. Place it at the base of your erection. If you’re using a double ring, gently stretch the second ring to sit around your testicles, or at the base of your penis.

      Once in place, you should notice your penis becoming engorged. This is because cock rings help restrict of blood flow out of the penis, which should help to creating a firmer, longer-lasting erection.

      Once you’re comfortable with the feel and fit of the cock ring, you can begin to experiment with the vibrations. Turn them on using the push button or switch, and move through the settings if it features multispeed or multifunction vibrations.


      Top Positions for Pleasure

      Positions where you have freedom of movement, but where your bodies can be pressed closer together are best for cock rings, as you can adjust the level of contact you have with the vibrations.

      Make the most of missionary with an extra buzz - maximum contact with the clitoris means both of you can benefit frrom the vibrations. Plus, this position works well with strap-on sex - just slip the ring over your strap-on and go.

      Her-on-top is great, too, as she can press and grind against the part of the ring that vibrates, with total control over the level of pressure. Grinding is usually more enjoyable than thrusting as it allows her to maximum contact with the bullet.

      And you don't need to be with a partner to enjoy a cock ring - if you have a penis, use one to enhance masturbation, or slip it over your fingers and use it as a clitoral vibe.
