Cock rings – What, Why, When

Cock rings – What, Why, When

Cock rings, also known as the penis ring have been around since 1200 B.C. and were originally designed to help with maintaining an erection and preventing premature ejaculation (PE) but before we talk about the cock rings benefits, let’s take a step back in history for a moment…

Cock rings were originally made from goat eyelids and included the eye lashes for the added benefit of female pleasure. Sounds barbaric, right? They didn’t have silicone, rubber or stainless so it’s pretty creative and highlights that the pursuit for better or more enjoyable sex has existed long before we were even a twinkle in our father’s eye.

Fast forward around 3220 years to the year 2024 and the purpose of cock rings hasn’t changed much, but the materials and design have evolved significantly to focus on pleasure and to support erectile function and delayed ejaculation simultaneously. Silicone cock rings are probably the most common type on the market followed by Phthalate free rubber and stainless steel, and we certainly don’t use goat eyelids anymore... thankfully.
Although they are used for this frequently, cock rings aren’t just about pleasure… Below we will go into the why and when of penis rings.

When to use a cock ring?


Cock rings are a great addition to your toy collection for both elevating pleasure and assisting with sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction (ED) or premature ejaculation (PE). Basically, they slow the blood flow back from the erect penis, supporting a longer lasting erection. To assist in preventing premature ejaculation, it is believed that a penis ring replicates the Kegel contraction which reinforces the mind-body connection and helps prevent PE (you can read more here).
As you’ll see when exploring our range, there are TONS of different styles available from vibrating to plain rubber rings and cock rings with prostate massagers. All of these provide dual benefits of increased pleasure and maintaining an erection whilst some people also benefit from delayed orgasm when wearing these.
 
There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that shows cock rings are beneficial in assisting in premature ejaculation and maintaining an erection and they can often be used as part of both medical and psychological treatment and in conjunction with penis pumps if required. This article by Sexologist Cam Fraser has some great tips for lasting longer which can be found here if this is something you want to explore further. 

Why use a cock ring?

The why is simple when considering the pleasure benefits and honestly, they are more versatile than people often realise, picture this… you have no issues standing strong and lasting long enough isn’t a concern for you but then you discover you can have the added benefit of a vibrating cock ring sending vibrations down your penis and your partners clitoris at the same time. We don’t judge but we think you’d be mad not to put some serious consideration into giving this a go, don’t you think?
Excitingly, a vibrating cock ring (or any type) can also be used during oral sex by either slipping it over the penis or if you opt for a flexible one, over the tongue, for mind-blowing BJ’s.
If oral sex is out of the question, a vibrating cock ring can be slipped over your fingers for a hand job with an extra buzz. Of course, wearing it on the penis will definitely add to the experience as well.

Extra tips 

  • Whilst cock rings are a great addition, it isn’t recommended to wear one for more than 20-30 minutes at a time but there are different strengths, firmness, and styles available, so it is recommended to discontinue use if any pain occurs.

  • Using a good quality water-based lube to help slide the ring on and off is advised.

  • Always use a good quality toy cleaner after use
