Cock Ring Basics
They might look intimidating at first glance, but cock rings – also known as c-rings, love rings, couples’ rings – can be super-easy to use and SUPER fun to try. They come in all shapes, sizes and materials with designs that range from beginner to hardcore-expert. At The Screaming O, we specialize in making cock rings using soft, stretchy and affordable materials that have been lab-tested as body-safe: SEBS and silicone are our favorites.
What Are Cock Rings?
Cock rings are sex toys made to fit around the penis or penis and testicles (depending on his preference) to enhance sexual intimacy in a variety of ways. Similar to how a corset enhances a woman’s natural curves, a cock ring can showcase the penis and testicles by making their shape and size appear more pronounced. Because most cock rings offer some form of tight constriction at the base of the penis, many men believe they can slow blood flow throughout the penis and help them last longer during sex.
How do you put a cock ring on?
A cock ring is worn at the base of the penis around the shaft and the testicles. It is put on before sexual activity – when the penis is erect or semi-erect – so that by the time he’s raring to go, the cock ring will be safely and securely in place and stay put.
If there’s a vibrator or extra stimulator attached to the ring, be sure to position it to be able to make contact with your favorite sensitive spots. For example, clitoral vibrators should almost always be positioned on top while perineum (aka taint) massagers or testicle ticklers should be positioned underneath. Switching it up can be fun, however, and there’s almost never just one way to wear a vibrating cock ring. So have fun with it!

Once you have it on and positioned the way you’d like, give yourself a minute. See how it feels, notice any areas that might feel uncomfortable or pinchy. Make any necessary adjustments and get used to the feeling of a snug ring at the base of your package. It’s a unique experience!
You may have noticed that there are TONS of cock ring choices out there – some look plain while others have vibrators and dangly bits attached – and shopping for the right shapes for you can be overwhelming. But finding the perfect cock ring doesn’t have to be a chore, and there’s no right or wrong choice. Sometimes it just takes practice and fortunately, that’s the fun part!
