Something you might not know about cock rings


I work at a great sex shop in Albuquerque called Self Serve. Everyday I’m there I learn crazy/awesome/weird new things about sex and I hear lots of interesting stories about customer’s  sex lives. I also hear some of the common misunderstandings about sex and sex toys. Cock rings are one of the toys people are most confused about.

Many people, and up until recently myself included, think that cock rings are supposed to go on the shaft of the penis, which isn’t incorrect because you can put it just on the shaft. But as it turns out, if you put the cock ring behind the testicles and over the shaft it will work with the circulation in the penis to help you stay harder  longer and increase sensation in the penis, and put gentle pressure on the prostate.

If you have a penis, your ejaculate circulates through a tube called the vas deferens. Check out the picture on this post about your prostate to see an illustration of the male reproductive system.

Your vas deferens starts in the testicles moves up near your pubic bone comes around and back in a little loop through your prostate and then out through the shaft of the penis. If you include the balls in the cock ring it allows blood to flow into the penis but it takes longer to flow out, so you have more sensation for longer. However, cock rings shouldn’t be used as a “cure” if you have difficulties maintaining erections.

Cock rings come in different shapes, sizes and materials, and according to Self Serve’s blog you don’t want to start with a metal ring. Start with something a little more giving like leather or latex.

To put a cock ring on you want to start with as flaccid a penis as possible and a little bit of lube so you don’t rip out any precious “short and curlies” in the process of putting it on or removing it. Start by putting your testicles through the ring, one at a time, then go for the rest.

It’s recommended not to wear the cock ring for more than 20 minutes because it could damage the capillaries in the penis if it’s worn for too long. They also aren’t recommended for people with vascular problems. If anything during sex hurts, make sure you stop what you are doing, so in this case, take off the cock ring if your penis hurts or feels uncomfortable.

Cock rings are one of the least expensive sex toys for sale, and if you get one with a motor it could feel really good for your partner too.

The following post is another WordPress blogger’s review of a cock ring which I think, from a female perspective, is right on. It feels good, but it isn’t earth shattering.
