Penis rings tend to be a misunderstood sex toy. Often overlooked or thought of as a purely medical device, Penis rings can also be used to heighten sensation, enhance appearance, and amplify orgasms. Sounds good to us!
To understand how a Penis ring works, first you need to understand an erection.
When you get aroused, the brain sends signals to specialized blood cells of the penis. The blood flow to the penis increases, the tissue expands, and muscles at the base of the penis contract to restrict circulation. The result is a penis that is firmer and enlarged.
How a Penis ring works.
Cock rings work by restricting the blood flow and keeping blood in the shaft of the penis. Generally, cock rings are worn around the base of the penis, but they can also be worn around the penis and the balls or worn just behind the glans (the head) of the penis.
How does it feel to wear a Penis Ring?
Sensation might range from slight discomfort to lots of pressure. Another way to relate to this, is when you get your blood pressure taken and the cuff around your arm tightens, your arm feels tingly, tight, and slightly uncomfortable. Consistent pressure and keeping the blood flow in 1 area can make nerve endings super sensitive. Therefore, when the cuff comes off (or when there is finally a release), there is a stronger feeling of relief (or a stronger orgasm).
There are tons of types of cock rings!
Cock rings are available in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and materials. Usually ranging from 35mm to 65mm in diameter, there is a cock ring for every girth and size. Some lay flat to the skin, while others are curved slightly to fit more comfortably against the shaft of the penis. Some are continuous rings while others have closures, allowing for easy removal. Some rings are available with a perineum rubbing extension, a hook, or a plug designed to stimulate the prostate. Cock rings can either be disposable or for multi-use, vibrating or non-vibrating. There are cock rings made from leather, silicone, rubber, neoprene, nylon, metals, and even plastic. It is recommended to check in with your own allergies and what lube you like to use, while picking the material your cock ring is made from.
How do you put on a Penis Ring?
Adjustable rings can be put on at any point during an erection by stretching the ring so that it fits snuggly around the base of the penis or behind the testicles. Stretch the ring to remove it easily at any time.
Non-Adjustable rings should always be put on a flaccid penis. Hold the ring under the testicles and insert one at a time. Then, pull the penis through the ring making sure to adjust for comfort. Reverse these steps to remove the ring from a flaccid penis.
How long should I wear a Penis Ring?
To prevent any damage or bruising to the penis, a ring should not restrict the blood flow for more than 20 minutes at a time. Beginners should only wear a ring for 5-10min to make sure it’s not too tight. If discomfort is felt at any time, the ring should be removed as soon as possible.
