Cock rings have been a common sex aid for ages. It has been the naughty little secret at the bedsides of many, helping intensify the sexual experience.

“What does it do for me?”

“How does it work?”

“Will it make my pecker fall off?”

This article will answer these questions and more, so pull up a chair and get ready for a sexual awakening!

What is a Cock Ring?

A cock ring is a ring made from plastic, metal, silicone, or PVC that is designed to slow blood flow to the penis, making it harder and more sensitive while delaying ejaculation and ultimately, intensifying your overall climax. Although this is the primary purpose of a cock ring, many have secondary or even more functions to them, which we will talk about later.

In a nutshell, it is a rubber O ring that can make your pecker harder and makes you last longer!

Are Cock Rings Safe?

Please remember, Cock Rings  affect the blood flow to the penis, so if you are unsure whether any item is right for you, its always advisable for you to consult with your doctor or physician. Remember, we all are different, and we here at masturgasm do NOT want your ticker to stop ticking.

Here are a few guidelines on how to safely and properly use your Cock Ring

Sexual Safety Tips

  • Make sure you are comfortable with the size, flexibility, and elasticity of the ring. We recommend that beginners use a more loose or more elastic ring ( the Paramour Cock Ring is a great ring that stimulates you and her!)
  • Do not wear a cock ring for more than 30 minutes, if your penis turns blue, or you feel uncomfortable swelling. If any of these occur, take the ring off immediately.
  • Beginners should try the ring for 5 minutes at first to understand how it feels and make sure it’s a comfortable fit.
  • DO NOT use a make shift cock ring. Please be nice to your pecker and it will be nice to you!
  • We at masturgasm do not recommend hard plastic cock rings, they tend to damage the skin and bruise easily.
  • Make sure when applying the ring to use a generous amount of lubrication to ensure ease of wear and more comfort during use.
  • If you are wearing a condom, make sure that the ring is not rubbing against it, for risk of ripping the condom through friction.
  • It is advised that you trim your pubic region around the penis and testicles to avoid snagging hairs. Unless that’s something you are into….then snag away!

Which Ring Should I Choose?

While there are many kinds of cock rings that are different sizes made with different materials, we recommend flexible slightly loose rings for the beginner. Once you are more experienced you can try out metal cock rings for a more intense experience or look into the more complex cock rings that offer urethral stimulation, anal stimulation, or perineum stimulation.

Knowing Your Size

No two rings are alike, and for that reason, no two cock rings are alike. It’s always best to measure your penis before getting a cock ring, that way you ensure that you will be comfortable and safe. Too small cock rings are a risk because they can cause damage to tissues and bruising.

The good thing is, if you are picking a flexible cock ring it will fit pretty much any size and most companies make sure the rings are elastic enough to cover most penis sizes. That being said, if you are looking for a metal cock ring, you MUST measure beforehand so that the ring is your size. So be honest about the size of your wang and start measuring!

Measuring Tips

Make sure that you measure your penis while it is erect, from the base of your penis to find the right circumference! Once you have the measurements of penis girth, divide the number by 3.14 (Pi) and you will have the circumference of your penis! This will give you a better understanding on what size cock ring is right for you.

Metal/Stainless Steel

Metal cock rings are solid non flexible, cock rings made for a specific size. They are easy to clean and minimal. It is advised that you measure your unit. One downside to a metal ring is that it is difficult to remove quickly for relief, so it is not recommended for a  beginner user.

Solid Flexible Ring ( Silicone, PVC)

Flexible Cock rings are our best selling rings out of the cock ring family. Easy to put on and easy to take off for almost any size, these rings are also very affordable. One downside to a flexible cock ring is that it might break during really rough sessions if the ring is thin.

Textured ring

Textured cock rings are either textured either for the wearer or the rider so they can enjoy ribbed textures on the inside of the ring for penile stimulation or sometimes on the outside for stimulating others. These toys come in various textures and sometimes can be uncomfortable to those with sensitive skin so be sure to research the texture and hardness of the material before choosing a textured ring.

Tear drop Cock Ring/Cock sling

A Tear drop cock ring is a more complex cock ring, it has a flared end that is used  to support the scrotum and massage the perineum ( the part of skin behind your balls, some like to call this area the chode ). These are great for the beginner that really wants to try something new and kinky, and is slightly curious about anal sensations. We recommend the Steampunk Cock ring to start out with.

Cock Cages

These little devices are almost in their own category! Some are an assortment of rings that go from the top of your penis to the base of the penis, providing a very unique experience. There is also something called a chastity cock cage that is worn to prevent sexual gratification. If you are interested in chastity devices, we recommend you check out the Spartacus chastity cock cage!

Using your cock ring

If you are using your cock ring for the first time, its best to use lots of lube, and trim the hair around the base of your penis and scrotum. Try putting it at the base of the penis shaft first to see how snug it gets, if comfortable you can stretch or maneuver it to be around the balls, or both at once. For beginners we recommend that you wear it for a short period (5-10 minutes) at first to get comfortable with the sensations. If you have a metal cock ring we recommend putting it on before your penis is erect to ensure comfortable application by putting each testicle through the ring at first, then the penis while pulling the ring towards your body.

If you are playing alone, you can masturbate or rotate the ring around to find your sweet spot! If you are with your partner, and have a vibrating ring, you can let them move the ring around or ride while receiving stimulation from the ring. For best clitoral stimulation we advise short thrusts to maintain contact with the vibrator and clitoris. The rest my sexy friend, is up to you!


Be safe, do not have your ring on for more than 30 minutes! if you feel any discomfort or swelling take the ring off immediately. If you are wearing a metal ring, wait till your penis is soft and remove your penis the same way you inserted it very carefully.

Cleaning your cock ring

After your session, you can wash your cock ring with antibacterial soap and warm water. Store the cock ring in a cool dry place separate from any other adult toys. Be sure to remove any large batteries from the cock ring before cleaning.

Cock rings are a great entry level toy that provide pleasure and utility for the right user. It is a toy that has been used throughout history, and has evolved throughout time providing new sensations for many sexual explorers.
