If you have spent even just a little bit of time shopping for sex toys the odds are pretty good that you’ve come across a cock ring or two.

Far and away one of the most popular adult toys for men, it may surprise you to learn that cock rings actually have some pretty impressive performance enhancing benefits that go way beyond just ramping up pleasure when you are getting down to business with a partner (or alone, for that matter).

Anyone wondering whether or not a cock ring might be right for them will want to make sure that they check out all of the inside information we highlight below. We detail exactly what these cock rings are, what they are capable of, and the different types available on the market today all in an effort to help you find the perfect cock rings for your needs and your budget.

Let’s dig right in!

What Exactly Are Cock Rings, Anyway?

At the end of the day, a cock ring is a pretty simple and straightforward sex toy – it is exactly what it’s called, a ring for your penis.

Specifically designed to slide around the shaft of your penis (down underneath your testicles), this amazing little device is just tight enough to offer the right amount of tension to ramp up your erections, to guarantee that they are harder, longer, and stronger than ever before, and to improve your sexual endurance all at the same time.

Combine that with the fact that high-quality cock rings are also capable of making your orgasms a lot more powerful and a lot more pleasurable than they would have been without one and it’s easy to see why so many people get their hands on these sex toys every year.

Breaking Down the Popular Types of Cock rings

While a cock ring is pretty much the simplest and most straightforward sex toy you can imagine (it’s literally just a ring) there are a couple of different options on the market today that have some pretty nifty features that you might be interested in.

As well worth looking into your options before you pull the trigger on this kind of purchase. Different cock rings can give you a completely different experience, and because you aren’t going to have to spend a mountain of money on any cock ring it might not be a bad idea to get your hands on two or three to shake things up every now and again.

Adjustable

Believe it or not, adjustable cock rings are relatively brand-new to the scene – which seems a little bit crazy, considering the fact that they are so flexible, so versatile, and so (obviously) infinitely adjustable.

Some of the more popular adjustable cock rings on the market right now take advantage of Velcro, snaps and buttons, D rings and carabiners, hoops and loops, and even lasso style “nooses” that allow you to dial in the exact amount of pressure and tension that the cock ring is putting on your penis.

This gives you a lot of wiggle room when it comes to finding the right size cock ring for your needs, but it also gives you a lot more control over the entire experience from top to bottom. Some of the adjustable options on the market right now also include a handful of other accessories (including vibration models and cock rings that include “ball bags”, just to scratch the surface) that you might want to explore depending on your interests and your kinks.

Stretchy

Another popular cock ring type comes in the form of stretchy silicone options that are again pretty flexible which allows you to purchase a couple of different sizes to find the one that’s going to fit you perfectly.

Stretchy cock rings also have the option to be worn just around the base of your penis or underneath your balls, depending on what you are in the mood for and depending on whether or not you’re looking to prioritize pure pleasure or sexual performance results.

A lot of folks really seem to like these stretchy silicone options because they are so inexpensive, so easy to clean and to maintain, but also because they are so easy to slide on and off.

The only little wrinkle you may have to contend with when you go with stretchy cock rings is that they can lose their elasticity a little bit over time. This is especially true if you are using them on a regular basis. You might have to refresh your cock ring collection every six months or every year depending on usage if the fit really starts to loosen up.

Solid

Solid cock rings were the first, pioneering options on the market with the initial few solid cock rings made out of hard rubber and other synthetic materials.

Today some of the highest quality cock rings ever produced are made out of high quality construction materials like stainless steel or precious metal, designed to be as ornamental and as eye-catching as they are to be functional.

The only trouble you might have with a solid cock ring is that you’ll have to really dial in your girth dimensions if you’re going to make the most of everything it has to offer. Use a solid cock ring that is too tight and it’s going to be ridiculously uncomfortable. Use a solid cock ring that is to loose, though, and you aren’t going to get any of the benefits that you were looking for.

Even still, they look pretty righteous and can feel amazing when you have the dimensions dialed in.

Vibrating

If the idea of strapping a cock ring with a tiny vibrating motor built on board entices you you’ll be happy to know that these are some of the most popular options on the market right now, especially when you’re looking to take advantage of a sex toy that’s fun for you and your partner.

These kinds of rings are almost universally worn down at the base of the shaft as opposed to wrapped around your testicles, but that’s in large part because the vibrating module is mostly set up for skin on skin contact with your partner.

Sure, you’re going to be able to feel a bit of a buzz from the vibrating system but some of these options have “ticklers” on the end that aren’t really designed for you as much as they are for someone else your spending some time between the sheets with.

Highlighting Some of the Big Benefits Cock Rings Offer

Like we mentioned above, there are definitely some pretty cool benefits you’ll get from sliding a cock ring on before you get down to business. Below we touch on some of the biggest benefits that you’ll enjoy almost right out of the gate!

They help you maintain rock hard erections

Regardless of the type of cock ring that you choose to use all of them are going to provide you with this baseline benefit – the ability to get and maintain absolutely rock hard erections with zero difficulties whatsoever.

These kinds of options are perfect for guys that want harder, stronger, longer-lasting erections but they also work wonderfully for guys that are struggling with premature ejaculation issues as well as erectile dysfunction issues.

All of this is made possible thanks to the way that the ring traps blood inside the shaft of your member, maintaining an erection for as long as you like and until you slide that ring off.

They boost your sexual confidence

While there are millions of men that suffer from erectile dysfunction issues linked to legitimate medical conditions there are millions of men that deal with ED for purely psychological reasons as well.

If you’re nervous about sex, nervous about your performance, and nervous about being able to get and maintain an erection a cock ring is going to set your mind at ease almost immediately. Slide one of these on and you’ll be able to lock in that rock hard erection for as long as you like (as we highlighted above), changing everything for you immediately – with no pills, no embarrassment, and no headache or hassle whatsoever.

They can intensify and delay your orgasm

Men that have used cock rings on a regular basis claim that they are able to delay their climax pretty significantly just by compressing the area around the base of your penis, but there’s no real hard science or evidence to back this up. The anecdotal evidence out there is pretty overwhelming, though, so the odds are pretty good that there’s more than a kernel of truth to this benefit.

A lot of guys that use cock rings regularly also report enjoying significantly intensified orgasms as well when they finally do “pop”, all because of that pent-up delay and anticipation. It’s not a bad idea to try it out to see if this is the real deal for yourself!

They are a lot of fun to play around with

Sex therapists report that only a very small percentage of women are actually able to reach orgasm from traditional penetrative sex alone, which is why cock rings that include those little vibrating modules or “ticklers” specifically designed for her pleasure are going to benefit both of you at the exact same time.

Some cock rings also include “girth extenders” that help your partner feel like you are a little bit wider than you might be traditionally, stretching things out a little bit more than you would have been able to on your own. This alone can really help take them to their happy place, so to speak!

The beautiful thing about cock rings is that when you’ve chosen the right size (and commit to taking it off after 20 minutes or so) they are 100% safe, 100% effective, and are a pretty inexpensive way to spice things up in the bedroom for the two of you!
