Glans rings are special penis rings worn under the glans of the penis. Unlike typical cock rings, made to be worn around the base of the penis (or testicles), a glans ring is worn around the head of the penis.
Just like any other cock ring, a glans ring will provide a pressure around the penis, making it more sensitive and harder. A glans ring is specially designed to make a penis head harder and more sensitive to touch. While this doesn’t help with general erection, it will make the head larger and harder, which will in turn make sexual intercourse more pleasurable for the wearer and his partner. It will also make orgasms more intense.
A glans ring is a cock ring positioned around the penis head. Therefore, almost any regular cock ring can serve as a glans ring. You may use flexible rings or sturdy, metal ones.
However, there are also some rings specially made to be used as glans rings. These rings are made to fit snugly around the penis head. This provides the most comfort for the wearer and his partner during intercourse.
Also, there are some special designs of glans rings made to enhance a wearer’s experience. Probably the most popular ones are the so-called Sperm Stoppers. A sperm stopper is a glans ring with a special rod made to be inserted into the urethra. This rod usually has a ball on the end and is made to prevent the sperm from coming out.
Penis Plugs with Glans Rings
Glans rings also come as part of other types of sex toys, most commonly penis plugs. A penis plug is attached to a glans ring so a wearer will have to both insert the plug into the urethra and position the ring around his penis head.
Glans ring has two functions in this type of toys. First of all, it is made to help keeping the penis plug in place. Urethral muscles work on pushing the plug out, so the ring will prevent it. The second function of the ring is to provide the additional stimulation for the wearer and a more pleasurable experience.
These devices resemble sperm stoppers, but they are not necessarily made to prevent the flow of sperm. Many penis plugs have a hole in the middle made for undisturbed flow of urine and sperm. It depends on the penis plug design whether it can be used as a sperm stopper or not.
Using a Glans Ring
Here are some quick tips on how to use a glans ring:
- The perfect fit is very important, so make sure to find a ring of the appropriate size. You need to know how to measure yourself for a glans ring.
- While the fit should be snug, your glans ring should not prevent circulation completely. Make sure to wear a ring that will allow blood circulation.
- Never leave your glans ring on for too long.
- Both circumcised and uncircumcised men can use glans rings. Uncircumcised men can choose to wear the ring with the foreskin retracted or not.
