Types of Cock Rings

Cock rings can come in many shapes and sizes. There’s always a perfect one for you. Which you want depends on what you plan to do with your cock ring.

Basic Cock Rings

These cock rings will be the first kind you imagine when you think about cock rings. They are very simple, just having one ring which grips onto the penis. The only thing you can really change with this kind of cock ring is where it sits on your penis. There are a few different styles available.

Steel Cock Rings

Steel cock rings are the most durable and hardwearing of the cock rings out there. They are completely inflexible, so you can only put them on while you are flaccid. You need to be completely sure that you’ve measured yourself correctly with these. There is no give in these so if they are too small then you’ll be having a painful time.

Leather Cock Rings

These have a little more give than a steel ring and will most of the time be adjustable. This is great if some days you need a little more help than other days, so you can go for a slightly tighter setting. These rings require a little more care. They are porous so absorb sweat and bacteria, so need to be properly cleaned after use or they’ll become very dirty.

Solid Cock Rings

These are similar to steel cock rings and will have very little give when you wear them. They work just as similarly as steel cock rings, and can be made of hard plastics, hard rubbers, metal, or even glass. Some will be more likely to break than others, so you should take care in storing or handling them.

Flexible Cock Rings

Some cock rings have a little more give to them. These tend to be made of a more jelly style material or even soft silicone. They are the simplest of cock rings, which you just put on and then use.

Lassos

A lasso is similar to a cock ring, but much more adjustable. It’s a good one for a beginner to try as you can experiment to find the tightness you prefer. You can fit these once already erect and then remove it whenever you need to.

Advanced Cock Rings

If you enjoy cock rings but want to add a little more stimulation to the experience, then an advanced cock ring is for you. These cock rings have extra elements which can stimulate different parts of the body as well as the penis. Some still focus just on the penis but do things a little different for extra pleasure.

Vibrating Cock Rings

A vibrating cock ring is used works very similarly to regular cock rings. They have a small vibrator attached to the edge of the ring, which simulates both the penis and a woman’s clitoris. They will rarely have a rechargeable battery, and some will be completely disposable. Some will allow you change the batteries inside them, and some will let you completely replace the bullet, so you can add a fresh vibrator to the cock ring.

Cock and Ball Rings

These rings often have two separate rings that are joined together. They sometimes look like a figure of eight. Some might just be a single ring which is large enough to accommodate both the penis and the balls. With these you insert the testicles first, and then the penis after. Using a ring on the balls can help further restrict the ejaculation.

Sleeves or Penis Extensions

These are similar to cock rings but slightly different. They can even be used at the same time as a cock ring. They are designed to add girth and length to a penis and can have extra stimulation like grooves or bumps for extra stimulation. Some are open ended, so you can still ejaculate as if it’s your own penis.

Multi Rings

These are sets which come in different sizes. They usually have a small medium and large. Sometimes you’ll want to wear more than one at the same time for different levels of restriction throughout the shaft. You can even try one behind the head, one hallway, and one at the base of the shaft.

Butt Plugs

A cock ring with a butt plug attached allow you some anal stimulation while you use them. Anal stimulation for men can be incredibly rewarding. The best way to stimulate the prostate is through the anus. While stimulating the prostate, men can have incredibly powerful orgasm. Combine this with cock ring stimulation and you might have the best orgasm of your life.

Perineum Stimulators

The perineum is the small area of skin between the scrotum and anus. For people who aren’t comfortable inserting things anally, the perineum is the only way to stimulate the prostate. While the stimulation won’t be as strong as direct anal penetration it can still be very pleasurable. A cock ring with a perineum stimulator can give you some great experiences.

Clitoral Stimulators

A cock ring with a vibrator can do a great job of stimulating a woman’s clitoris. If you enjoy it but don’t feel like it’s hitting the right spot, you might want to try a cock ring with a clitoral stimulator. These can have additional parts to simulate tongues or fingers, or just have longer parts to better reach the woman’s clitoris. It’s very personal what you enjoy, so you may have to try several of these to find out what works for you.

Ball Rings

While some cock rings will have parts which stimulate the testicles, some are designed solely for this purpose. These can be much smaller, as the scrotum can be held much tighter than the penis. If you enjoy testicle stimulation the picking up a ball ring to go with your cock ring can complete your experience.

Ball Crushers

Ball crushers are only for the most extreme out there. They are entirely focused on squashing the testicles and are common practise in BDSM scenarios. While these aren’t specifically cock rings, they can often be attached to cock rings.

Spiked Rings

Another favourite amongst BDSM communities. Cock rings with spikes are the same of traditional cock rings. They have small screws or spikes placed around the surface of the ring. These are screwed or pressed into the penis, to add pain to your sexual pleasure.

Cock Rings with Dildos

A cock ring with a dildo attached can be a way for your lady to experience double penetration without needing another person in the bedroom. The ring sits around the penis, and has a dildo attached to the edge. The dildos can come in a variety of sizes and can be positioned both above and below the penis.

Materials

There are a range of materials available for cock rings. Some are better than others. They include:

  • Silicone
  • Composites (a blend of multiple materials)
  • Rubber
  • TPE (a type of plastic)
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Leather

Generally non-porous materials are better, as they cannot harbour bacteria and can be cleaned a lot easier. Non-porous materials are silicone, glass and metal.

Which Should You Pick?

Finding the perfect cock ring can be a long and daunting experience. You might co through several different rings before you find the one that’s perfect for you. It isn’t all bad though. There will be things you enjoy about nearly every kind of cock ring so none of the time should be wasted. The best thing you can do is just get started!
