How to Use a Cock Ring

Most of the time using a cock ring is quite a simple process. At first though, it might seem a little daunting. This short guide should help you with both putting on your ring and wearing it effectively.

How to Put a Cock Ring On

When putting a cock ring on, you should first read through any instructions which came with your cock ring. Some cock rings are made to be worn in the middle of the shaft, or just under the head to stimulate the glans. You need to be sure that you are putting your cock ring in a position which is safe.

The exact process for putting on the ring will vary slightly depending on which kind you have. There are some points which are valid for all cock rings though. Before you begin, you may want to shave your pubic hair. It is very easy for hair to get tangled in the ring which is not only painful but can make it quite difficult to remove.

Another useful point for all cock rings is lubrication. Adding some lubricant to both the shaft of the penis and the inside of the cock ring can make it much easier to put the ring on. Forcing a cock ring on without lubrication can be quite painful so it’s better to be on the safe side and always use lube.

When you’re ready to put on your ring you’ll most likely need to be either flaccid or semi-erect. The only kind of cock ring you can put on while erect are the highly flexible, jelly or silicone kind. All other rings will be painful to put on while erect as they are too rigid to get over the head of the penis. Most cock rings are designed to sit just at the base of the penis. They should sit comfortably and cause no pain.

How to Wear a Cock Ring

Most cock rings are simply worn around the base of the penis. Some are designed differently though. Even when designed for different parts of the penis, they are still quite simple to put on.

Flexible cock rings are much easier to put on than rigid ones. They can be stretched around your penis and can even be put on once erect. If you stretch the ring when putting it on, be sure to release it gently or it will snap on your penis. More rigid rings can only be put on while flaccid or semi erect. Once you become aroused, your penis will fill up the ring making it fit properly.

A ring meant to go on a different part of the penis like the middle of the shaft or below the glans needs to be worn at that specific part. These rings may be slightly smaller or tighter than a traditional cock ring so wearing them in the wrong place may cause bruising or pain.

Cock and ball rings take a little longer to put on and should only be done while flaccid. First slip your testicles into the ring, one at a time. Once the ring is comfortably positioned around the scrotum, you can fold your penis down and push the ring down to the base of the penis. Then you can become aroused and your penis will fill up the ring.

Any cock rings with additional attachments such as butt plugs should be first put on the penis. Once the ring is in position, you can then position your extra attachments. If your ring has a ball ring too, then you should insert your testicles before putting them on the penis. Rings with vibrators will usually put on with the vibrator facing upwards so that it can stimulate a woman’s clitoris.

Wherever your cock ring sits, it should be snug, but not so tight that it completely cuts off your circulation.

When to Use a Cock Ring?

You should only usually wear a cock ring for masturbation or sex. Some people choose to wear them all day, but this is quite dangerous and could result in permanent damage to your penis. If you wish to wear a cock ring as a fashionable accessory, then you need to be sure that it sits very loosely like a piece of clothing.

How Often Can You Use a Cock Ring?

You should allow a minimum of an hour between uses of a cock ring. Using it too often can bruise your penis where the ring sits. You should only use a cock ring for up to thirty minutes.

How to Use a Vibrating Cock Ring?

Vibrating cock rings are very similar to normal cock rings. You put them on in the same way, and they sit in the same position. The main difference with vibrating rings is how you use them once they’re on.

You can either choose to use the vibrator for personal pleasure or for your partner. When using them personally, you will usually turn the ring so that the vibrator faces your scrotum to stimulate the testicles as well as the penis. In this situation, you should be able to go about your normal cock ring activity without any changes.

When using the vibrator for your partner’s pleasure, things need a little more thought. You’ll be aiming mainly to stimulate the woman’s clitoris. Many women cannot orgasm consistently through penetrative sex but can reach orgasm very quickly from clitoral stimulation. A cock ring with a vibrator gives you the best of both worlds, as the clitoris is stimulated during penetration.

A big consideration with clitoral stimulation is thrusting. As you engage in normal sex, the vibrator will come into contact with the clitoris and then be removed with every thrust. For some women this will be fine, but others might prefer a more constant contact. To achieve this, you can focus on grinding and rubbing movements rather than thrusting.

You might even want to experiment with different positions. Some women will prefer to go on top, as it gives them more control over the vibration and stimulation they feel. It might even push them to thrust faster and faster as they want to get back to the vibration.

It can be useful to plan ahead when using a vibrating cock ring. Knowing what you want to try means that once it’s turned on you can quickly get to the action without wasting too much of your battery.

Generally, many vibrating cock rings won’t stay active for more than around thirty minutes. If your battery is still going when you’ve finished playing, it’s best to remove it as it will last longer. Some vibrators have a disposable bullet, so they might need replacing after some time. Others will be battery powered and need a replacement battery every now and again.
