There are unfortunately very few sex toy options for your average pens-sporting individual; there are even fewer body safe and well made options. While this is starting to change, it’s not nearly as much as I personally would be satisfied with. Everyone deserves fun toys! This lack of products means that this available are generally ‘solutions’ to issues—masturbation sleeves because you don’t have a partner, cock rings because you have erection issues. The strong association of cock rings with impotence is a shame, because they are not just for that! They can also be a lot of fun regardless of your ability to have an erection.


all about cock rings

 

Your typical cock ring is pretty straightforward: it’s made of a stretchy or firmer material and is meant to go around the penis and/or testicles in order to restrict blood flow and thereby help the wearer achieve their personal best. Cock rings don’t make you bigger or harder than you are able to be, but an unaided erection naturally ebbs and flows. A cock ring helps narrow the difference between your ebb and flow, and will generally help the wearer stay harder, longer and help stave off ejaculation. Even people who experience regular and reliable erections can benefit from their use, either for aesthetic purposes, sensation, or just in order to last longer than you normally would.

 

Cock rings in all shapes, sizes and materials


That’s where the simplicity ends. There are vibrating cock rings, those made of cheap jelly materials which are disposable and those made with silicone that are rechargeable. You can find decorative cock rings in materials like wood, silicone, stainless steel, and even silver. There are some that have perineal massagers which are shaped kind of like a teardrop, and kinkier options that involve multiple rings, attached butt plugs, ball stretchers, urethral sounds and more.

The world of cock rings, once you start digging around, is one populated with creative ways to make you and your partner(s) feel good—and they can most definitely be used for solo fun.
