Do Cock Rings Work

Men might choose to purchase cock rings for a lot of different reasons. Whatever the reason, one of the burning questions might simply be: Will it work? The answer to this isn’t something an internet article can give you. What works for one man might not work for another. We can give you an idea of some of the things they are meant to do though.

Reasons People Purchase Cock Rings

The reasons for a man to use a cock ring can generally be divided into medical or sexual.

Two of the biggest medical reasons to use a cock ring are erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Some men might want to use a cock ring to help with erectile dysfunction and may even use a penis pump alongside it to keep their penis hard during masturbation and sex. Other might choose to use a cock ring to restrict their ability to ejaculate or help them stay hard after they have done so. Both outcomes help them last longer in the bedroom.

For a purely pleasurable experience though, the uses of cock rings become much more varied.

Other people might use a cock ring when they have sex to enhance their erection. This can produce much more sensitive parts of the body, making orgasms both quicker and stronger. Some like to use cock rings decoratively, and might have a looser, more elaborate version to wear whenever they feel like it. Some might even use them just as an occasional treat as part of their sexual repertoire.

When thinking in terms of sexual pleasure it really just comes down to what you enjoy.

How Are Cock Rings Supposed to Work?

A cock ring is intended to work by restricting blood flow in the penis. The arteries in the middle of the penis carry blood into the penis, while the blood vessels around the edge allow the blood to flow back out. During a normal erection the blood which enters the penis is stored in the erectile tissue, which allows things to flow out slower and contributes to making the penis hard.

In people with erection problems, the blood is able to exit the penis at a much greater rate, causing the penis to stay soft. When a cock ring is applied, it restricts the flow of blood through the blood vessels. This causes the flow of blood into the penis to be greater than the blood flowing out, which helps maintain the hardness of the penis.

While cock rings can be great to help with penile problems, they are also used by people who have perfectly functioning penises. The increased amount of blood in the penis makes many of the nerve endings in the area a lot more sensitive than normal. It even increases the size of the penis, both getting slightly longer as well as slightly girthier, and much firmer. This extra manhood can make many men feel much more confident in themselves, and confident men tend to be much better in bed.

Another use of cock rings is delaying ejaculation. Just like they restrict the veins around the edge they also restrict the vas deferens, which is the part of the penis which carries sperm out of the body. When this is restricted, it can delay your ejaculation allowing you to continue with sex or masturbation longer before finally reaching orgasm. The orgasm tends to be much more intense than usual, with a lot more ejaculate than normal too.

Some cock rings even have textured surfaces or vibrators attached. These can spice things up in your bedroom for your partner as well as yourself, providing them with extra stimulation while you enjoy the sensations of your cock ring.

Do Cock Rings Work?

Unfortunately, this isn’t a question with a simple answer.

Physically, cock rings do exactly what they are intended to do. If you wear one and find that it isn’t having much of an effect on your penis then it probably isn’t tight enough. Conversely, if you find it painful, then it’s probably too tight. When you have a ring that is the right tightness though, they will restrict the blood flow and have the intended effects on your penis.

Whether or not these effects can have the impact you want though is different from man to man. For example, one of the main things the restriction will do is to make the penis much more sensitive. For some men, this is perfect. It allows them to feel some new sensations and have much more intense orgasms.

For others, this is the complete opposite of what they want to happen. A very sensitive penis can lead to quick orgasms, which doesn’t carry any benefit to a man who suffers from premature ejaculation.

Even this isn’t as simple as it seems though. The extra sensitivity in some men may be too much, and they might find that their penis feels a little numb, or the sensations are a little dulled. In a man seeking the maximum sexual pleasure from a cock ring, this would be a bad thing. In a man with premature ejaculation though, this would be ideal as it would allow them to last longer in the bedroom.

These kinds of pro and con arguments can be made for almost every aspect of cock rings. Some things that one man find a positive, another will find a negative. While generally it is safe to say that cock rings work, they might not work for you. The only way you’re going to be able to answer that question is to try one out for yourself.
