Vibrating Cock Rings Erection Rings Couples PinkCherry

 

It probably doesn't need to be said that erections feel real good, and using one to satisfy a partner feels even better. But sometimes you might be a little quick on the draw, making it hard to ensure your partner's satisfaction. In some cases, it might even be hard to get hard in the first place. The solution to these weiner woes? Cock rings! But how do they work, exactly, and what are considered the best cock rings for sexy recreational use? Sit back and let PinkCherry teach you a thing or two about a ring or two (or three).

What is a Cock Ring?

Cock rings, also called penis rings, love rings or erection rings are...well, rings worn around the penis. They generally circle the base of the penis, although they can also be worn near the head or around both the base and the balls. Cock rings worn closer to the head are sometimes called head rings or cock crowns while rings worn around the balls are called testicle cuffs or ball stretchers. Now, if you’re looking to add a lil’ something extra to playtime, you can wear whatever style you want. You can even just sport testicle cuffs. But for the purposes of achieving and maintaining an erection, a cock ring is the right tool for the job.

What Do Cock Rings Do?

Cock rings tend to help with erectile dysfunction. The ring, which fits snugly around the base of the penis, constricts blood flow moving out of the penis while simultaneously allowing blood to flow in. It helps the wearer achieve an erection and maintain it for when the fun really gets going. It can also help prolong and even enhance erections, as well as delay orgasm (especially for those who have been practicing delayed ejaculation).


If it's difficult to get an erection even with a cock ring, it can be used in conjunction with a penis pump. It's common for people recovering from prostate surgery to use a penis pump/cock ring combo as they get back up to speed. But this combination can absolutely be used for recreational purposes, too.

Are Cock Rings Safe?

When used attentively, yes! Because cock rings restrict the flow of blood within your penis, it's extremely important to pay attention to the sensations you're feeling and to note how long you've been using the ring. If you start to feel any discomfort or numbness, if you start to become cold, or if your penis begins to turn blue or white, remove the ring immediately to avoid temporary, or even permanent, nerve damage. Under no circumstances should you leave a cock ring on for more than thirty minutes, and NEVER fall asleep wearing one. Doing so could put you at risk for some serious penis injuries—yikes!


Okay, we probably freaked you out a little there, but we promise that cock rings really are safe. Just follow these two simple but very important rules:


  • DON'T wear a cock ring for more than 30 minutes.
  • DON'T use a cock ring if you're on blood thinners or have other cardiovascular complications, unless you've consulted a physician first.

Cock rings have the potential to help people dealing with erectile dysfunction and make sex feel better than ever by allowing you to focus fully on the experience rather than trying to maintain an erection. Pay attention to the way you feel, and if any discomfort or numbness occurs, just remove the ring.

The Best Cock Rings of Every Kind

Like many other kinds of sex toys, cock rings offer a lot of variations to choose from. Here, we'll familiarize you with some of the most common and popular styles and what they do best, both for you and your partner.
