What is a Cock Ring?

Cock rings are as the name suggests, a solid ring, or elastic band, typically made from materials like metal, 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. Learning how to use a cock ring can help you to get started on a more exciting sex life!

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 the blood flow out of the penis, cock rings help to hold your erections rock solid.

Penis Rings for Beginners

Before we start, you will need to experiment with multiple rings and sizes to see that tightness works well for you. For this, we recommend a cock ring set or adjustable band. We list some of our top picks later in this guide and in our cock ring buyer’s guide. But to get started, you will need:

  • Cock Rings (Adjustable or Set)
  • Lube (To Prevent Friction or Tugging)
  • A Private Space
  • 15-20 Minutes to Practice

Now that you have what you need, let’s get started!

Choose a Comfortable Cock Ring Size

Make sure that your penis ring is tight and snug, but not uncomfortable to use for an extended period. For first-timers, opt for a penis ring multi-sized set or adjustable band. These will let you experiment with a variety of sizes to help you find a level that is comfortable and effective.

Stretch the Cock Ring Outward and Over the Penis

This step should be done while the penis is soft or semi-soft.  For fixed or metal rings, you can also add a bit of lube to the cock ring or your penis. This will make sliding it on and off more comfortable.

Slide or Roll the Penis Ring Up Against the Balls

For beginners, you can use your penis ring in this position. Pay attention to the tightness of your band and adjust accordingly. You want it to be tight, yet comfortable. For extra stimulation or for more advanced users, continue to step 4.

Stretch the Cock Ring Behind the Balls

This step can be tricky. You can slip one ball through at a time, or pull the band and loosen it. It is best to do this while your penis is soft. Once the band is behind the balls and in place, you can allow your penis to harder. Again, having lubrication on the cock ring helps things “slide through” a bit easier.

Adjust Your Cock Ring as Necessary

During play or sex, be mindful of your body and overall comfort. Your cock ring should enhance your sexual experience, not detract from it. Don’t be afraid to make adjustments as you go.

Allow your Penis to Soften and Remove

After you finish, simply stretch and remove the penis ring. For a band, you can also add a bit of lube and roll it off. It is important to remove the ring after use, or after wearing it for 30 minutes to be safest.

Things to Remember When Using a Penis Ring

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.

    1. Loren Couse

      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!
