Homemade Cock Rings

A question that comes up often with all types of sex toys is whether or not you can make your own. Some sex toys can be difficult or dangerous to fashion homemade versions, but as cock rings are so simple they are a little easier. They also don’t enter the body like many other sex toys, so there are a lot less risks with homemade cock rings.

A homemade cock ring can be very inexpensive and doesn’t take much effort to make. There are a number of materials around the house you can try, and it won’t take many skills to make. You might also want to make your own cock ring as a trial before buying a real one to see if you like them first.

Examples of things people use as homemade cock rings include:

  • Scrunchies: A woman’s hair tie can function great as a cock ring. These are very elastic and shouldn’t constrict blood flow too much.
  • Shoe Laces: You can tie shoe laces as tight as you want, so these are great for a makeshift cock ring.
  • Condoms: Simply cut the inner circle of a condom out and you have your own cock ring. The great thing about these is they are already designed to fit comfortably on a penis and have lubrication, so they can slide on easily.
  • Plumber rings: These can be easily picked up from any hardware or plumbing store. They are small metal, or rubber rings used ii plumbing, and with the correct size can easily function as a good cock ring with a little lube.

  • Inner tubes from bikes: These allow you to make many cock rings out of one tube. They sit inside the tyres of your bike, keeping it inflated. Simply slice into the tube id whichever widths you wish for your cock ring and with lubricant slip it on. Be sure that the inner tube is the diameter needed for your cock rings.
  • String: This is just like using a shoelace, simply tie it as tight as you need. These might be a little more uncomfortable than shoelaces though, as strings tend to be very thin and maybe made of rougher materials.

Using Rubber Bands as Cock Rings

When looking around your house for suitable things to use as a cock ring, one of the first ideas might be to use a rubber band. While these might seem like a good idea, rubber bands can be quite dangerous to your penis, so it’s best to avoid them.

Why are Rubber Bands Dangerous?

Firstly, the materials used in rubber bands are quite rough. Not only can they generally irritate your skin, they might also tug on the skin or pubic hair while you wear them. The skin of the penis and scrotum is thinner than other parts of the body, so it is much more sensitive. This tugging or rubbing, can damage the skin causing chafing or even bruising.

Rubber bands also tend to be quite thin, so are very likely to snap while using them. If you’ve ever felt a rubber band ping against your skin, you can imagine how painful this will be on your penis. They can also pinch the nerves of the penis, which can cause numbness around the band.

Tight rubber bands might be quite difficult to remove, especially when erect. Much like while wearing them, while removing them it can pull on the skin or hair around the penis. It might also be difficult to stretch the band over the head of the penis, so you might have to wait until completely flaccid to remove it. This can be a problem if you need to remove it quickly and using scissors can put your penis at extra risk.

Having a rubber band on your penis for too long can cause permanent, irreversible damage to the tissue and nerves in both your penis and testicles. Rubber bands are even used in animal castration. They place a tight band around the testicles to restrict the blood. They leave the band on for a few days and eventually the testicles rot and fall of on their own. The exact same thing can happen with your own penis.

Dangers of Homemade Cock Rings

For the most part, using a homemade cock ring is the same as a store bought one. As long as you follow the same guidelines you should be fine. Don’t wear them for more than thirty minutes and be sure they are the right diameter before putting them on.

If you feel any pain during use of a homemade cock ring be sure to remove it immediately. If things don’t go back to normal within thirty minutes, then head to the doctors as you may have caused some damage to your penis. If any particular material has caused you problems when wearing them as a cock ring, then it would be wise to avoid using it again in the future.

Should You Use a Homemade Cock Ring?

In general, I would avoid it. This isn’t to say that it’s going to cause irreversible damage when used correctly, but there are still risks. You only get one penis, so I’d always recommend using a safe and well-designed cock ring from a reputable manufacturer. And always steer clear of rubber bands!
