How to Put on a Penis Ring

Penis rings apply pressure around the base of the penis to help trap blood in the member and enhance erections. They are easy to put on and remove, and can be used with lubricant for added comfort.

Make sure the ring is not too tight or it could cut off circulation in the penis and cause a life threatening condition known as gangrene. Pain, numbness, or skin that drastically changes color indicate the ring is too tight.

Measure Your Penis

There are many different tools you can use to measure your penis. Buntrock advises you to avoid using a hard ruler, and suggests using a flexible measuring tape instead. Gently wrap the tape around your cock, choosing the thickest part of the shaft. Then mark where the ends of the tape meet, and write down the measurement. It’s important to take multiple measurements – science likes data – and to also measure while your cock is erect, as this will give you the most accurate picture of its size.

It’s a good idea to apply some water-based lubricant to your cock before you start measuring. This will help the ring slide on smoothly and prevent friction or snags, which can cause pain or irritation.

Some cock rings are solid, while others have closures that make them easier to insert and remove. It’s important to choose a ring that is the right size for you – too big or too small can damage your dick.

Forget all those old wives’ tales that correlate shoe sizes with dick sizes, or that your body type, height, or race determines how long and girthy you are. The only way to know how long and girthy your dick is is to measure it, whether it’s erect or flaccid. Then you can choose the perfect cock ring for you.

Measure Your Testicles

In most cases, cock rings are safe if used correctly. However, they can cause a mild blood clot in rare cases (it’s a good idea to remove it right away if it gets stuck). They also tend to make your penis feel fuller and harder than normal because of the extra blood held there by the ring. Some people find that this makes stimulation feel more “nuanced” or even “better,” while others prefer it to feel less intense but firm.

To measure your testicles for a cock ring, gently wrap string or dental floss around the base of each one to get an approximate circumference. You can also use an orchidometer, a tool that has a series of oval-shaped beads that range in size from small to large. Each bead has a label that indicates its volume in milliliters. Most cock ring brands have a selection of sizes so you can find the one that feels best.

If you’re using a ring with a closure (usually made of leather, rubber, tape or neoprene), it should have snaps or buckles along its length that can be snapped or buckled closed. The closure is optional, but it makes it easier to put the ring on and take it off. Before you put it on, lubricate both your penis and the inside of the ring with water- or oil-based lube.

Choose the Right Ring

Cock rings come in a wide variety of designs and materials. Some are adjustable, allowing you to tighten or loosen the ring to fit your penis’s girth. Others feature extra stimulators, like clitoral vibrators or perineum massagers, to enhance your pleasure. For maximum comfort, use a lubricant when inserting and taking off the cock ring. And be sure to choose a ring that’s compatible with your lube, as water-based lube won’t last on silicone toys and oil-based lube can damage rubber.

For best results, a cock ring should be inserted while your penis is semi-erect. This ensures that the ring is properly positioned to trap blood in your shaft, resulting in a firm erection. You’ll also want to make sure that the ring is a good fit and won’t pinch your testicles or cause painful soreness.

Some men find that wearing a cock ring increases sensation during sex, helps maintain their erections longer and delays ejaculation. This effect will vary from person to person, but it can be useful for those who have mild erectile dysfunction or have a hard time achieving a solid erection. Just be sure to choose a ring that’s easy to remove (preferably with a built-in release) and never wear one while you’re sleeping, as this could lead to permanent damage to your testicles.

Put on the Ring

Penis rings — or cock rings, as they’re sometimes called — are the Swiss Army knife of penile accessories. They’re capable of helping you hold on to an erection, extending your orgasm and even preventing premature ejaculation (PE). They work by restricting blood flow out of the shaft. “When you’re aroused, blood rushes in and makes your penis hard,” says urology physician assistant and sexuality counselor Aleece Fosnight. “Cock rings further restrict the flow, so the penis stays hard for longer.”

A ring that’s too tight or too loose can cause damage and hurt. To avoid these problems, start by putting the ring on when your penis is flaccid or only semi-erect. Use lubricant to make the process easier and more comfortable. When you’re ready to go, slide the ring onto your balls one at a time, starting with the lower-hanging ball.

Once the ring is in place, put on your condom and get busy. Be sure to take it off before you fall asleep; nocturnal erections can last hours, and leaving the ring on too long can cause permanent injuries. If you experience numbness, redness, skin discoloration or tingling pain while wearing the ring, stop using it immediately. It’s also not a good idea to use a cock ring while showering or washing your hands; water may enter the area and can cause serious infections.
