How to Use a Cock Ring | Wearing a Penis Ring for the First Time

    Categories: How toSexSex Toys

For those looking to spice up your sex life, cock rings are a great option.  That’s why the goal of this post is to walk you through how to use a cock ring for the first time.

Cock rings are one of the easiest accessory you can use to give you harder erections, stronger orgasms, and even last longer in bed.

The reasons for using a cock ring a pretty straight forward, but if you have never used one before you are probably wondering…

What is a Cock Ring?

Cock rings are as the name suggest, a large ring, or in some cases, elastic bands, typically made from materials like silicone or rubber that you put on the base of your penis, or for greater effect, behind the balls.

Penis rings work by restricting blood flow which can make you naturally harder and increase sensation.

Cock rings are also a great pick for first-time sex toy buyers.  They are one of the easiest to use and least intimidating sex toys out there.

Cock rings also come in a wide variety of sizes and materials and can range anywhere from $10 for basic brands all the way up to $30+ for more premium designs.

Why Use a Cock Ring?

Extra stamina – Probably the most popular reason people choose to use a cock ring is for the benefit of lasting longer in bed.  The added pressure around the base of your penis helps you to build up to your orgasm for a longer period of time.

Stronger orgasms – This added pressure and prolonged sex will also let you peak at a higher level meaning an orgasm much more intense than you would typically encounter.

Harder Erections – By restricting blood flow out of the penis, cock rings help to hold your erections rock solid.

How to Use a Cock Ring

When you are using a cock ring for the first time you have a few different options to choose from.

Cock rings come in a variety of materials, flexibilities and design.

For this article, I want to talk about how to use elastic cock rings because they are the most beginner friendly and are more versatile to different sizes.

Cock Ring Sets

Elastic cock rings also commonly come in sets of sizes which allow you to choose a tightness and size that is most comfortable for you.

Pro Sensual Cock Ring Set

The Pro Sensual Cock Ring Set is one of my top recommendations for first timers because of its durability and flexibility.

The rings are soft, stretchy, and easy to roll on. This means you avoid a lot of the tugging and hair-pulling discomfort you can run into with other styles.

Best of all The Pro Sensual Cock Ring Set is inexpensive for a set of three. It makes it a great choice for people who want to try out a cock ring for the first time but aren’t looking to sink in a whole lot of money up front.

Using your Cock Ring

First, choose a size from the set of three that is most comfortable for you.  In this example, I used the medium sized ring.

Stretch the cock ring over the head of your penis and roll the ring downward.

You can also add a bit of lube to the ring to make thing more comfortable, and having that extra lubrication will make things a bit easier later on and more comfortable overall.

Next, roll the cock ring to the base of the penis.  Some people stop here which is fine, but if you want to add more stimulation and get all of the added effects I talked about earlier you can also take things a bit further…

Now that the ring is at the base of the penis, the next thing you want to do is stretch the cock ring and loop it under the balls. While you are still learning how to use a cock ring it is important to..

Take your time.

Again, having lubrication on the cock ring helps things “slide through” a bit easier.

If you find this step to be too difficult you can always bump up to the larger size cock ring. The important thing is to make sure that things are tight and snug, but not uncomfortable.

And once the band is behind the balls you are ready to go!

The ring should stay snuggly in place until you finish your business.  And once you become soft again your cock ring should slide off without much problem.

More Cock Ring Options

In addition to the multi-sized sets, you also have a variety of other great options.  Below I will list a few, but to get a full list check out more in-depth article: The Best Cock Rings.



Another of my favorite rings is the Super Stretch Cock Ring which is made from a soft rubber and I find with its larger surface area on the band to be a “Super” comfortable fit.

The ring works in the same way as before, although what you do gain in comfort is the pressure distribution, you lose in the ability to roll it on and off, as well as the extra sizing options.

All things aside, it is one of the most comfortable elastic rings out there and comes in a few different color options of Black and Red.

The last style I want to talk about are adjustable cock ring bands.

These are our top choice because of their flexibility and straight-forward way to use.

Adjustable bands are great for people who are still learning how to use a cock ring because they let you adjust the size and tightness exactly to how you seem fit and lock in a size.

They are also one of the safest options because they can be quickly loosened or removed if things get a bit too tight or uncomfortable.

Advanced Cock Rings

Alloy Metal Cock Ring

For more advanced users who already know how to use a cock ring, you can also experiment with metal rings.

These are a bit more expensive, and because of their solid build do not flex, and therefore will give you an even more powerful effect.

Metal rings are worth building up to after you get a bit of experience under your belt, and can really take things to the next level.

  • Should you put cock ring on before you get erect or after. Diabetic and have trouble keeping erection so I can penetrate. Thank you.

    • For most fixed cock rings you should put your ring on when your penis is still soft. For beginners we recommend the adjustable ring because you can put it on and off in any situation and it gives you a bit more control.

      Hope this helps!
