How to Wear a Cock Ring

If you’ve never used a cock ring before, you might be eager to try one, but unsure of how exactly you should put it on. Since there are several types of rings, I’ll go through the list and give you an idea of how to get your new ring on (and off!).

snap on cock ringsCOCK STRAPS – If you’re a first time user, a great beginner ring is the snap-on strap. Consisting of a strip of leather (or leather-like material) with a row of snaps, it becomes a “ring” when you wrap it around your cock and balls. Picture the strap kind of like a belt. You simply place the inner aspect of the strap behind your ball sac, so the strap rests comfortably. Pull both ends of the strap around the base of your cock and cinch it snugly together. The idea is to have one of the metal caps snap against the corresponding button, creating a tight “belt” around your cock and balls. Since your strap contains multiple snaps, play around with it a little, and see which combination creates the snuggest fit, without being too uncomfortable. With all cock rings, your cock might grow substantially thicker while you’re wearing it, so you might find it’s smarter to leave a little “room to grow.” The benefits of using a snap-on strap are that you can get it on easily, remove it quickly, and you’ll have plenty of different fits, especially if you’re using a strap with many snaps. Another fun thing to try with these straps is to wrap them only around your balls, creating a narrow “ball stretcher” of sorts. You can even find combination straps that fit around each nut, plus the root of your cock. If you like that sort of play, those types of straps not only feel great wrapped around your junk, but they look pretty hot too.

stretchy cock ringsSTRETCHY COCK RINGS – These are probably the most popular type of cock ring, especially for first timers. They come in all sizes, colors, materials (silicone, jelly, rubber), and price ranges. When it comes to stretchies, I usually group them into two types: those that last awhile, and those that don’t. The cheaper and stretchier the ring is, the least likely it is to last a long time. This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not going to work for you, only that it’s probably going to snap on you, and usually when you’re putting it on or taking it off (though I have had them break while wearing them, too!). The best solution I’ve found is to keep a bunch of cheapies on hand. I always have some of the Ring O rings around, but the Donut Ring 3 packs are similar, and these plumper donut packs work just as well if you want a girthier cock ring. But how to put them on: if you want to wear one the traditional way, I’ve found it’s easier to push your balls through the ring first. Unless your nuts are exceptionally large (and some are!), you can stretch the ring to push both through. With this type of ring, you’ll have to be careful not to get any hair snagged in the ring, if your balls are hairy (and some are!). Once you have the ring on over your balls, the tricky part is to stretch it enough to fit your cock through, so you can wear the ring wrapped around the base of your dick (and behind your ball sac). Need a visual? Check out this photo of a guy wearing a black stretchy cock ring around the base of his cock and behind his balls.

Need to get a stretchy ring off? Simply stretch it enough so your cock – then your balls – can pop through the ring. It’s easier to do when your cock goes soft, but if things get too tight, you should be able to remove it without too much trouble, even if you’re bone hard. Remember: the more firm the ring, the harder it’s going to be to get it on and off. Silicone rings are usually less stretchy, but tend to have a longer life. Rings made of elastomer or rubber (or “jelly”) tend to be less expensive, stretchier, and will break a lot easier.

lasso cock ringsLASSO COCK RINGS – Similar to the straps, a lasso is simply a strand of material (usually silicone or rubber) that wraps around the base of your cock, tucked behind your balls. Included with your strap is a hollow bead that is used to gather both ends of the strap and cinch it tightly behind your balls. The concept is pretty simple, and actually isn’t a bad idea for guys who want something that’s easy to get on and off, and want a ring that’s completely adjustable. The design is pretty much that of a bolo tie, which you’re tightening around the root of your meat, and that means you have a lot of versatility when it comes to how tight you want it to feel. The two drawbacks I find to this type of cock ring is that the bead is sometimes a hassle to slide, and you’re going to have the ends of the lasso hanging behind your nuts while you’re using the thing. But these are inexpensive, easy to use, and not bad for first timers, or guys who like this style of ring.

speed shift cock ringSPEED SHIFT COCK RING – Like the Lassos and Snap-On Straps, the Speed Shift rings are very versatile when it comes to adjusting the size and snugness, offering more increments than a snap-on. Simply wrap the ring around your balls/cock and push the peg into the hole (there are 17) that feels right for you. I don’t personally care for these, but it’s another option for guys who want a fairly inexpensive cock ring with versatile sizing.

solid cock ringsSOLID COCK RINGS – Another thing newbie users should remember is that you’re more likely to get a ring that’s too tight (or too loose) if you’re unsure of what size you need. A solid ring might pop on pretty effortlessly over your flaccid dick, but what’s going to happen when the base/shaft swells and your cock has grown too thick (and unbendable) to pull the ring off? You don’t want to find your cock swelling too much in a solid ring. A lot of experienced cock ring users wear these solid metal rings with no problem, but just be aware of what could happen if you’re unsure of the size and/or how your dick might react once it’s hard and swollen. A good way to determine the proper diameter is to first try a set of rubber rings in various sizes, to see which size gives you the best fit.

Putting on a solid ring is a little tricky, because there is no give to these things. You’ll have to slide your flaccid cock through the ring, and then pull each ball through the opening, so the ring ends up wrapped around the base of your dick and behind your balls. A lot of men push the balls through first, and then pull their soft cock through. Take care when doing it either way, because you could pinch your penis or testicles against the metal ring.

Getting these off is often more difficult that putting them on, because dicks sometimes swell when you’re wearing a cock ring. You might have to cum before you’re ready, just to get your cock to soften up enough to pull it back through the ring. Take care not to wear a tight metal ring for an extended period of time; if it starts to hurt or your cock and balls are turning too red/purple, it’s probably time to work on getting the ring off.

Heart set on a metal ring, but you’re leery of a solid one? Why not try a hinged metal ring, or perhaps the locking cock ring?

cock and ball ringsCOCK AND BALL RING COMBOS – Basically, a combo is a cock ring that’s been combined with a ball stretcher or other rings that wrap around your cock. You can find them in soft materials like silicone and leather (or even this leather/rubber combo), as well as solid metal for more adventurous (and experienced) men. Given that they have more rings, they are more difficult to put on, especially the solid ones. The snap-on strap combos are a bit easier to slip into, but you’ll have to work each nut and then your dick through them. Some even have individual straps for each ball, which is great if you love showing them off and enjoy the feel of something tugging against your nuts. Another option if you want a cock/balls combo is the semi-stretchy solid unit from Oxballs. It grips your cock from the root as well as the base, and works as a ball stretcher once you push your nuts through the bottom-most opening. Personally, if I want a ring around both my cock and my balls, I like to use a skinny cock ring for my dick, and a thicker, stretchy ball stretcher, like this one from Oxballs. Feels great, and much easier to get each ring on individually.

vibrating cock ringsVIBRATING COCK RINGS
Vibrating cock rings come in many types, and for the purposes of this article, I’m simply suggesting ways men can use them for their own pleasure during sex or masturbation. To achieve some pleasurable ball stimulation, put on a cock ring with a vibrating bullet so the vibrator rests against the back of your ball sac. Colt’s Vibrating Stud ring works great for this, and if you want something even better made, shoot for the Tantus Vibrating Silicone Ring or Super Soft Vibrating Ring. A lasso cock ring with a vibrating bullet for a clasp can turn the annoying hang-down straps into an unexpected burst of pleasure when the bullet vibrates your balls. Lots of smaller stretchy rings come outfitted with tiny buzzing bullets that can be used for behind-the-balls pleasure, but guys who love glans/frenulum stimulation can put these rings around the head of their cocks, or rest the bullets directly on the frenulum for a really nice bout of stimulation. Check out the Ring O “O Wow” or the Big O 2 (double bullet!) for cock rings that work well for this.
