5 Great Cock Rings for Beginners

5-great-cock-rings-670x274Have you always wanted to try a cock ring, but never knew which type to buy? In this guide, I offer up 5 suggestions for first-time cock ring buyers.

Not sure which one would work for you? For sure, there are countless choices, from solid metal rings, to luxury vibrating models. But if you’re unsure of which one to pick, the variety can be a bit daunting. First let’s talk about the benefits to using a cock ring. If you’ve never used one before, a cock ring is basically a device that (usually) is worn at the base of the cock, behind the balls. If the ring is tight enough, it will help prevent blood from flowing back out of the cock as it hardens during arousal. For many men, this means they can get harder faster, and stay stiffer longer. But even if you don’t have problems obtaining or maintaining a strong erection, there are other benefits to wearing a cock ring.

For some guys, a stiffer, harder cock means the sensations of pleasure are heightened during sex or masturbation. Some men can even prolong their orgasm while wearing a cock ring. Others may just like the way their dick looks with this sexy accessory wrapped around their cock and balls. Whatever the reason you’d like to wear one, there are a few things to remember… not only when wearing a cock ring, but when picking one out.

The most important thing to remember is to wear a ring that you can take off quickly if the need arises. As your penis swells while wearing the ring, it may engorge to the point where it won’t slip back through a solid ring while it’s still in its swollen state. This can not only be painful, but dangerous, especially if it reaches the point where medical intervention is necessary to remove the ring. While seasoned cock ring users have more experience using solid rings, I’d be hesitant to recommend one to a novice. Not only is the removal an issue, but – since they are completely solid – you have to choose more carefully when picking out the size.

For the purpose of this blog entry, I’m recommending a handful of cock rings that are adjustable, or at least more flexible, when it comes to sizing. Most guys, regardless of cock size, should be able to experiment with these rings, and put them on without too much hassle, and be able to remove them pretty quickly if things get too uncomfortable. Once you’ve become a little experienced with using one or more of these rings, you could probably progress to some more expensive and/or more deluxe rings. But for now, any of these five should work as a great starter cock ring:Ring O: This small stretchy ring from Screaming O is probably one of the least expensive toys out there, but don’t let that stop you. I’ve been using Ring O rings for a few years, and I keep buying more because they work so well for me. They offer a tight fit, but they’re pretty darn stretchy, so you can pull them on and off without much trouble at all. Once in place, the Ring O is going to hug your cock and balls tightly. This might be uncomfortable for some (especially after wearing it awhile), but it’s so easy to pull it off, it’s never a hassle. These cock rings won’t last for years, but because of the low cost, I always order a bunch at a time. I generally pull one on during jack off sessions (especially if I want to enjoy it for awhile), and always wear them during sex. One of the benefits to keeping a bunch on hand is allowing your sex partners to use them. I’ve lost count of how many times a guy will inspect mine with curiosity and want to try one himself. By keeping a bunch on hand, it’s a great way to get another guy in on the fun. And in every instance, the guy’s taken his new ring home with him. BUY A RING O.Tantus Super Soft Cock Ring: This is another tight ring, but it’s not as stretchy as the Ring O. I’ve found this one a bit too tight for me for really long sessions, but if you’re looking for a nice tight ring that you can remove pretty easily, the Super Soft Cock Ring from Tantus is not a bad choice. As with all Tantus toys, the ring is made of premium silicone, and has no unpleasant odor. The silicone is super smooth, and comes in three bold colors (red, black and purple). Personally, this is my go-to ring for short jack off sessions when I want to get hard in a hurry. The bright red color makes it pretty eye-catching during sex, too. BUY A TANTUS SUPER SOFT COCK RING.5 Speed Leather Cock Strap: The ultimate ring for adjustability. You simply wrap the leather strap around the base of your cock and behind your balls, and snap it on where it feels snug, but not too tight. These leather straps look great, feel comfortable, and last for years. I’m still using the original 3 Speed Strap I purchased nearly 20 years ago, so even though it’s priced under ten bucks, it’s probably going to last as long as you need it. Great for on-the-go sex, too. You may even be able to wrap it around your wrist, like a bracelet. Perfect for hookups and cruising! BUY A 5 SPEED LEATHER COCK STRAP.
3-Pack Rubber Rings: This trio of rubber cock rings from California Exotic is pretty no-frills, but it’s a great starter kit if you’re not sure which size you need, or if you just like to experiment with tighter or looser rings. Many guys like to use a larger ring around the base of the cock and balls, and then use the smaller ones at the base of the shaft and/or around the balls alone (for many guys, wearing a ring or a strap around the balls, can either delay orgasm, or extend them once climax begins). Another great use for a kit like this is to see which size is easier to put on without a lot of stretching…which makes it easier to select a similarly-sized ring made of a more solid material. BUY A 3-PACK OF RUBBER RINGS.
Colt Vibrating Stud: This is another cock ring from California Exotics, and the only one on my list (as of this writing) that costs more than $10. At $12, it’s still pretty affordable, and a good way to test drive a cock ring that vibrates. The ring itself is stretchy enough to pull around your shaft and tuck behind your balls. Note the little nubs that protrude from one side of the ring? The ring should be positioned so these nubs push into your balls (don’t worry, they don’t hurt); once you turn on the included bullet, the vibrations will flow right though these nubs and offer your nuts something nice! And the bullet tucked behind your ball sac buzzing away is another nice bit of pleasure. While there are definitely nicer vibrating cock rings on the market, this is still a pretty good ring. I use mine often enough that when I replaced the batteries in the bullet, I bought a 10-pack. BUY A COLT VIBRATING STUD.
