Boin-oing-oing!

My two brothers and I stared at the cock ring on our parents' dining room table for a full minute in total silence.

There was no question that our mother had no clue what it was. 

How did we know?

She was using the cock ring as a pencil holder.

The real question was, did each of US know it was a cock ring, and more importantly, where did this random cock ring come from and why had our mother adopted it to suit her office administration needs? 

Eventually, my young brother confessed to buying the thing at a truck stop "as a joke".

It is something we have, of course, never let him forget. 

We never told my mom.

She's not alone in not being entirely sure just what a cock ring is supposed to do. 

We know they involve the penis and we know they involve sex, but beyond that cock rings are a mystery to a lot of people. 

Worry not, weary perverts.

I'm here to help. 

What does a cock ring do, this sex toy of the male world? 

In a nutshell (that was like, a half testicle joke, and I stand by it) a cock ring makes your sex life better. 

In order to help answer the question "what does a cock ring do" a little bit more clearly, I'm going to break it down into three questions.

Welcome to your definitive cock ring guide.  

Let's do this! 

And by 'this' I mean doing a cock ring. 

 

So what exactly is a cock ring? 

Giphy

Few things are as literally named as the cock ring. 

A cock ring is a ring that is placed on the penis to help erections last longer. 

They can be made of different types of materials including silicone, rubber and yes of course, even leather.

Some men even use cock rings that are made of rigid metal, but this is more popular in the fetish or kink world than for the average cock ring user.

Typically they are placed at the base of the penis.

But, some cock rings are designed for you to place around the penis AND the testicles.

If your man wants to ring just a cock ring for his balls, what he actually wants is a testicle cuff. 

We will write about that another day, so fret not. 

 

What does a cock ring do?

A cock ring can be used recreationally or it can be used medicinally.

Either way, its purpose is the same:

The trap the flow of blood in the penis to get or maintain a powerful erection. 

For men who have no trouble getting or maintaining an erection, a cock ring can be a fun way to play around with pressure and sustain sex past their orgasm. 

Men with erectile dysfunction can rely on things like the quick assist of a cock ring or a penile vacuum to help them achieve a simple erection. 

Men who use erectile pumps slip cock rings over their penises just after pumping up in order to maintain their erections.

This is popular for men with nerve damage that might otherwise inhibit them from getting an erection naturally.

On top of all that, there are triple crown cock rings that work on the penis and the balls, so that the flow of blood is also trapped in each testicle.

This makes it impossible for the testicles to pull close to the body during orgasm, intensifying the feeling of climax. 

Cock rings can sometimes include clitoral stimulators on them, which makes sex even more fun for the female partner on the receiving end. 

Heard of a French tickler? It's like a cock ring!

Sometimes it can be a condom with a stimulator. 

Other times, it's a cock ring with a clitoral stimulator. 

 

Are there any risks of using cock rings? 

Giphy

Like all things fun and a little bit bizarre, there are some health risks we should talk about when we talk about cock rings. 

When using a cock ring you are essentially cutting off the circulation of blood to your penis.

This makes for hot, strong erections, but if you use one for more than 30 minutes you could be in trouble.

Pay attention to his penis.

If it becomes pale in color or he complains of numbness you need to get it removed ASAP to make sure no nerve damage is caused. 

The loss of circulation can also lead to getting ACTUAL GANGRENE OF THE PENIS. 

Excuse me for a moment while I take to my fainting couch.

Okay, I'm back.

But yeah, penis gangrene. 

If that happens, it could lead to PENIS AMPUTATION.

If your partner has heart problems or is on medication for their blood pressure they shouldn't fuck around with their circulation using a cock ring unless they talk to their doctor first. 

And of course, if anything weird happens where you start to worry, call a doctor.

 

So why should I try one?

You don't need to be freak in the sheets to want to try a cock ring.

The average dude can really benefit from the added confidence a cock ring gives.

Plus, when he's not worried about losing his erection he's much more likely to be able to really focus in on your pleasure. 

Especially if he knows there's a world-class orgasm waiting for him at the end.
