How and why to Use a Cock Ring?

Posted by Bliss Team on

Cock Rings can up the ante is the bedroom, even leading to mind blowing, amazing pleasure for all parties involved. They are small but effective sex devices and can be a game changer for your sex life. So, this is the why and the how of trying one;

So, what is a Cock Ring? They are tight, circular sex toys that is placed at the base of the penis and/or beneath the scrotum to hold blood in the erect penis. This can produce a harder erection; it can increase sensation and maintain and erection longer. They may be able to help people with erectile dysfunction to hold and erection longer. They can be purely a ring, or they can have a vibration component to them which we will delve into a little more later.

How do Cock Rings Work?

The process of an erection involves hormonal reactions that cause arteries to flood the two corpora cavernous chambers in the penis. The spongy tissues of the corpora cavernous fill with blood that eventually restrict blood from flowing back out of penis. This trapped blood causes the penis to harden and grow. After all the fun is over the next hormonal release opens the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow out of the penis.

Cock rings work with that process of restricting the blood flow. Without a cock ring some amount of blood continues to flow in and out of a penis even when it is erect, a cock ring works to slow down that flow. A cock ring helps produce a stronger erection and can increase the sensitivity of the penis and delay ejaculation.

A cock ring combined with a stimulation/toy or penis pump can be a natural way for those who have erectile dysfunction concerns achieve and maintain an erection. Through stimulation or a penis pump, blood can be drawn into the penis and that is when the cock ring comes into play. It can help stop the blood flowing back out of the penis through manually restriction. Remember every body is different and this process may not work for everyone, but it could be worth a try.

What types of Cock Rings are there?

We mentioned earlier that they can be purely a ring, or they can have a vibration component to them. They can be solid, flexible, adjustable models, basic design, have a vibration component or they can be tech enabled. They can be made from silicone, rubber, leather, metals, glass, ceramic, what they are made from influences how you use your cock ring. Cock rings come in different sizes to accommodate all sorts of body types.

How to Use a Cock Ring?

A cock ring can be put on a flaccid, semi-erect penis or a full-on hard-on. This depends on what type of cock ring you choose to play with and how experienced you are with them.

  • If you are new to cock rings it is best to start with a stretchy one made from silicone or an adjustable one that you can set the size. You may have to play around with some different sizes to find the right fit for you.
  • There are two main spots to place a cock ring so the different sizes can come in handy as you get more experience.
  • Use lubricant before you put a cock ring on. Using a Lubricant allows you to slide the cock ring on easily (it is also far more comfortable to do). The really important point of using Lubricant allows you to remove the ring quickly due to pain or discomfort or when you have finished playing. One last note on this – make sure you use the right lubricant for the material the cock ring is made from. That means no silicone lube with a silicone cock ring. If you are using a condom with it do not use an oil-based lubricant. Water-based lubricant is your allrounder.
  • You can wear a cock ring at the base of the penis or at the base of the penis and below the scrotum. It is a personal preference thing really. If you want to try it over the scrotum be patient and be careful as it can be tricky and even more so if the penis is hard before you get to put it on. Having a cock ring over the base of the penis as well as the scrotum can make the penis harder, longer-lasting erection and add a bit of extra sensation.
  • Do not use a cock ring for an extended period of time. Follow the instructions on the packaging. Keep in mind that medical professionals recommend that cock ring be used for NO more than 30 minutes at a time. If a penis is erect for 30mins naturally that is ok, but the addition of a cock ring restricting blood flow can damage tissues in the penis.
  • Pay attention to your body when you are wearing a cock ring. Stop and look at your penis while you are playing, if it becomes dark red or even blue, or the penis becomes visibly narrower where the ring is, remove the cock ring immediately. Again, always use the cock ring in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Cock rings offer many different sexy possibilities to all those involved in play. Basic cock rings do all the things that we have discussed so far. Others have vibration to increase pleasure for all concerned. You can use a vibration cock ring (or the bullet vibrator in a simpler version) as a finger vibe to stimulate a clitoris, vulva, perineum, anus and more. The tech enabled cock rings can be app-controlled with multiple vibration speeds and patterns while others can have a simple remote control for easy control. Vibrating cock rings can also be added to dildos for strap-on sessions. Cock rings are a simple, affordable way to try something new.
