How To Use a Cock Ring: A Step-by-Step Tutorial

If you or your partner has a penis, learning how to use cock ring can make sex even hotter and longer lasting. However, we have a few tips that everyone should know before introducing these fantastic sexual aides into their love lives. 

We’ve got a step-by-step tutorial on all things cock ring so that you’ll be ready to go in no time.

What Is a Cock Ring?

While a cock ring may not be the type of jewelry made for your finger, it’s definitely worth its weight in gold. Penis rings are appropriately sized bands put at the base of the shaft. 

The band stops blood flow from the penis into the rest of the body. The physical result is that most users report having firmer, longer-lasting erections. 

Cock rings are just one more tool to add to your sexual experiences, especially if you like experimenting with new and different ways to please yourself and your partner.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Cock Ring?

The boost to your physical package is probably reason enough for you to learn how to use a cock ring, but there are plenty of other benefits to brag about, too.

Boost Your Confidence

Like it or not, a lot of your sexual self-confidence comes from factors usually outside your control — like the size, shape, and hardness of your penis. Cock rings can help you take control, so to speak, giving you the ability to get harder and feel bigger. 

Stop worrying about what you can’t control and take charge of what you can. Cock rings may also help manage erectile dysfunction but always check with your doctor first. 

Delay and Intensify Your Orgasms

While there isn’t a lot of hard science behind it, many users say that cock rings help them delay and intensify their orgasms. This effect may be due to the compression of the base of the penis and the testicles, which works similarly to the squeeze technique often used to help premature ejaculation. 

When you are ready to go, you’ll have even more intense orgasms, no matter the sex position. 

Enhance Sexual Pleasure

We’ll look closer at the types of cock rings next, but plenty of options are designed to enhance sexual pleasure in both the wearer and their partner. Plus, delaying orgasms until you’re ready can allow you to have much longer-lasting sex. 

Some people also really get off on that feeling of constriction and may even choose to wear their ring over the testicles and scrotum. 

4 Types of Cock Rings

Multiple types of cock rings are available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. 

The first and most well-known type is the stretchy cock ring. These rings are great for beginners because they’re inexpensive enough to let you get a feel for them without breaking the bank. 

Most stretchy cock rings are silicone, so make sure you don’t use a silicone-based lube with them — silicone lube can degrade silicone toys more quickly. 

If the idea of choosing a size (and we’ll get into how in just a bit) seems overwhelming, you can also pick up an adjustable cock ring. Instead of being made from the silicone cock ring, adjustable cock rings use materials that allow you more wiggle room (pun intended). 

If you really want to party, you can buy vibrating cock rings. Like the other types, these rings fit around the base of your penis, acting as a vibrator against your partner’s clitoris — and some are even rechargeable! 

Anything with clitoral stimulation is a win in our books. Try it with our Awaken Arousal Oil to blow your partner’s mind even more. 

And finally, there are solid cock rings. However, these are not for your first time, as they pose far more of a safety risk than the other types. 

Are Cock Rings Safe?

Speaking of safety — is learning how to use a cock ring a safe thing to do? Are there any risks involved?

Yes, some specific risks come with using a cock ring, but we also have a few ways you can minimize them. In general, when used appropriately, cock rings are relatively low risk. 

Check How It Fits

Just like there are different sizes of penises, there are also multiple sizes of cock rings. Step one in learning how to use a cock ring safely is to ensure you’re buying the correct size. 

To find your size, start by getting an erection. Who doesn’t love a little masturbation homework, right? Once fully hard, use a soft measuring tape to measure the girth of your penis at the base.

Then, divide that number (in inches) by 3.14 (or pi, if your calculator has that function). That calculation will get you the diameter, the size you’ll look for when buying a cock ring.

If you choose a size that is too small, you run the risk of constriction going too far and cutting off the supply of blood flow to the penis entirely. 

Remove After 20 Minutes

Cock rings are great, but you shouldn’t wear them for longer than 20 minutes at a time. If you do, you risk creating a condition called priapism, where you couldn’t get rid of your erection even if you wanted to. 

Although that may not sound like a bad thing, it can lead to permanent damage to the penis. Not worth it. 

Trim Your Pubic Hair

Trust us; if we didn’t give you this tip, you’d discover it yourself after using a cock ring once or twice. We love a big bush, but it can make putting on and taking your cock ring off a little more complicated and painful. 

Do yourself a favor and trim your pubic hair back a bit. As an added benefit, it’ll make your penis look even bigger.

Tips for Using a Cock Ring

The number-one tip we can give you for learning how to use a cock ring is to use lube like Intimacy Sex Oil from start to finish. It can help you get it in place more comfortable, make penetrative sex feel better, and help you take it off after — there’s really no downside.

Another crucial tip is to start with a non-erect or only semi-erect penis. Trying to slide a cock ring over the head of the penis with it fully erect is not only uncomfortable, but it may also be completely impossible without hurting yourself. The goal is for the ring to fit comfortably tight, but it should never be painful. 

Cock rings can absolutely be used with condoms (and should be, especially if you’re with a new partner). Put your condom on first, then slide the cock ring over it. Make sure to use plenty of lube, and check that none of the materials will work against each other.

And finally, if your cock ring does get stuck, don’t panic! This is why we recommend the stretchier types for beginners, as you can quickly cut them off in an emergency. You can also use more lube to help slide it off in a pinch.

Takeaway

Like all sex toys, cock rings can add to your sex life if you take the time to learn how to use them and both partners consent. Life is short; experiment as much as possible. 

Better sex can also mean a higher sense of sexual health and wellness, making you feel good inside and out.
