Despite being one of the most popular sex toys for men, the subject of vibrating cock rings (and how to use one) doesn’t often come up in casual conversation, and it definitely wasn't mentioned in your abstinence-only sex ed. So, how are you supposed to know how and when to slip one on? 

Around here, we love to talk about the joys and how-tos of vibrating cock rings. If you want to learn how to use a cock ring like a pro, keep reading.

 

What Is a Cock Ring? Why Wear One?

These fun little sex aids take the form of a silicone ring that is placed around the base of the penis and the testicles.

But why wear one, right?

Well, a cock ring gently restricts blood from leaving the penis, engorging it and providing harder, longer-lasting erections. For some, this may also help with delaying ejaculation, so you can last longer in bed. 

Many guys want to boost stamina and last longer in bed, either to prolong the fun of sex for their own pleasure or to offer longer-lasting pleasure to their partner. 

On average, men tend to take 5.4 minutes to reach an orgasm, while it takes women 14 minutes on average. Lasting longer in bed (and exploring foreplay) could help bridge that orgasm gap. 

Vibrating cock rings add an additional benefit – shared vibes. When a vibrating cock ring is worn at the base of the penis, the vibrator can also gently stimulate the clitoris of your partner. 

 

Types of Cock Rings 

Cock rings come in all shapes and sizes. There are a few styles of cock rings that have stood the test of time.

  • Static cock rings: Silicone penis rings are the tried and tested baseline model. These rings don’t vibrate, they only function as a ring. Not the most exciting option in the world, but silicone cock rings are the OG, workhorse of the cock ring family.
  • Vibrating cock rings: Vibing cock rings take the baseline cock ring and transform it into an orgasm engine. These cock rings have various features that will elevate your experience to heights that are the stuff of dreams. ORO is a fabulous example of the classic vibrating cock ring design. It has everything the first-time user or the experienced sex toy aficionado could want.
  • The single - Shaft-only cock ring: The classic cock ring is the style that only wraps around your shaft. This is the easiest to use, effective and enjoyable. 
  • The double - Shaft and ball ring: Then there were two. There are more advanced types of cock rings that wrap about the shaft and the balls to turn the volume up on the intensity. (They even come in triples!) 
  • Materials vary: Cock rings are mostly made from stretchy silicone (a fan fave). But they are also made from metal, rubber, leather, neoprene, nylon, ceramic, wood, and even bone. The safest and most approachable cock rings are silicone rings. 

 

How to Use a Cock Ring

Some helpful hints will help you get the most out of the experience and avoid any potential health issues associated with prolonged cock ring use.

The process of how to put on a cock ring is simple. 

Here’s a step-by-step approach:

  1. Apply a dab of water-based lubricant to the inside of the cock ring.
  2. Place the ring over your flaccid or semi-hard penis. 
  3. Carefully slide the cock ring down toward the base of the penis.
  4. If your cock ring is applying an uncomfortable amount of pressure on your shaft before proceedings even get going, then wriggle it around a bit - it may just be a case of getting it to ‘sit right’. If it is still uncomfortable, then take it off; it doesn’t fit properly. 

Now let's get into a bit more detail for the studious among you. 

 

7 Helpful Tips For Learning How To Use a Cock Ring

If you're trying something new, like donning a vibrating cock ring, there are a few tips you should know to keep things safe and pleasurable. 

 

#1 The Fit Matters

If your cock ring doesn’t fit right, it can cause your penis to feel numb during sex - and that’s a sure sign that it should come off. A cock ring that is too loose is going to move around during solo or partner play - and that’s not ideal either. Stretchy silicone cock rings often fit a range of girth sizes, but sometimes the fit is just not right. 

 

#2 Start With Stretchy Silicone Cock Rings

Once you enter the world of cock rings you’ll find they come in a variety of materials. The most user-friendly among them is silicone. Silicone is a wonderfully forgiving material. It’s soft yet provides an exceptionally firm grip. A medical-grade silicone cock ring like ORO is easier to fit on your penis than others made from rigid materials such as metal.

 

#3 Add Lubricant When Sliding on Cock Ring

When you are learning how to use a cock ring, the importance of a dab of lubricant cannot be understated. Always use a water-based lubricant when using your cock ring, especially the first few times or until you are used to the sensation. A great water-based lubricant will make fitting far easier - and help avoid irritation. A well lubed cock ring will also allow you to quickly remove your the ring if it becomes uncomfortable.

 

#4 Get A Semi First or Start Flaccid 

It’s easiest to put a cock ring on when you’re semi-hard. But don’t wait too long to slip the ring on, putting a cock ring on an erect penis might defeat some of the “longer lasting erection” benefits. Some men find it easiest to put a cock ring on while flaccid. The timing may take some experimentation on your part. There's no right or wrong here, but when you put decide it's time to put your cock ring on will effect your experience. 

 

#5 Many Cock Rings Wrap Around the Shaft AND the Balls

Depending on the cock ring you’ve chosen, silicone cock rings may also wrap around your testicles as well as your shaft. But this is a bit of a pro maneuver. We recommend starting with a classic vibrating cock ring that only wraps around your shaft. Then, graduate to the cock rings that wrap around your balls too. 

 

#6 DON’T Use a Cock Ring For Extended Periods of Time 

Seriously, you can damage your penis. Do not wear your cock ring for periods that extend for over 30 minutes. This device slows blood flow to (and from) one of the most delicate parts of your body - let your dick rest every now and then. AND DON'T FALL ASLEEP WITH YOUR COCK RING ON!

 

#7 Always Wash your Cock Ring

Some nice aftercare keeps your cock ring fresh and clean. Using soap and warm water will keep natural bacteria in check, and stop from spreading any nasties to your partner next time you use it during partnered sex. 

 

For Some, Cock Rings Have a Medical Use

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterized by difficulty getting or maintaining an erection long enough to enjoy healthy and pleasurable sexual intercourse.

A cock ring prevents blood from flowing away from the erect penis, meaning that you may be able to stay harder for longer. It’ll be most useful to those who can achieve a partial erection. 

 

Cock Rings Are Great for Shared Pleasure

Enhanced erection and effortless partner clit stimulation, at the same time? Yes, please. The modern cock ring is often a vibrating one. This feels great to whoever wears one but it also has an amazingly tantalizing effect on those being penetrated. That is why cock rings are the quintessential shared pleasure couple's sex toy. Everybody wins with cock rings.
