There are several popular types of cock rings you can use. Generally speaking, cock rings can be classified based on material and design.
Cock rings are excellent sex toys that can make your erections rock-hard, make your penis more sensitive and improve your performance.
For the best experience it’s important to know which kind of cock ring to use.
Cock Ring Materials
Cock rings are made of numerous materials. There are two major material groups: soft and hard. Soft rings are made of light, often elastic, materials such as rubber or silicone. Hard rings are made of sturdy materials, typically metals. These two cock rings types are made to achieve the same thing (erection enhancement), but to a different degree.
- Soft cock ring materials typically include rubber and silicone, though these rings can be made of other materials. Leather cock rings are also classified in this group, even though they are not as elastic as rubber or silicone. These rings have advantage that they are softer and more comfortable and thus suitable for beginners and those who prefer lighter pressure. On the other hand, the effect is not as pronounces as with sturdy cock rings.
- Hard cock ring materials are sturdy, typically metals, though there are some wooden cock rings and hard rings made of other materials. These cock rings are made for more advanced users and they cannot be worn for a prolonged period of time (unlike soft cock rings). However, the experience is more intense and the effect more pronounced so there are many men who prefer these cock rings. If you wish to wear a metal cock ring, make sure it’s made of a body-friendly metal to prevent any allergies or other risks. Also, keep in mind that metal cock rings and other hard rings can only be worn for 20 minutes to half an hour the most before you have to take them off.
Cock Ring Designs
The basic cock ring design is simple: it’s a ring made of a soft or a hard material made to be worn around penis or testicles. Typically, a cock ring is worn around the base of the penis but other placements are also possible. For example, a glans ring is worn under the glans (penis head). Glans rings and penis rings are usually same in design, but some variations may be encountered depending on the ring used.
Triple cock rings are designed to stimulate various erogenous zones at once. These toys consist of three interconnected rings positioned at angles that allow a man to wear the toy around the penis and testicles at the same time. These rings, just like other types of multiple cock rings (such as penis spines) provide much stronger stimulation than single rings.
Cock rings can also be made with additions designed to provide more stimulation for wearer and his partner. For example, vibrating rings have an integrated vibrating bullet or another small device that provides stimulation. Another way to enhance the functionality of a cock ring is to adapt the design to stimulate the wearer’s perineum or other sensitive zones or to stimulate the wearer’s sexual partner during intercourse.
Cock Rings with Other Toys
Another great way to use a cock ring is to integrate it with another sex toy. While it’s always fun to use a cock ring in a combination with another adult toy, these toys are specially designed to include both a cock ring and another toy so they make a unique pleasure device.
Cock rings and glans rings are particularly popular with penis plugs and other urethral toys. When attached to a penis plug, a glans ring has two purposes: to keep the penis plug in place and to provide additional stimulation during use.
Similarly, an anal toy may come with a cock ring attached to provide simultaneous massage to several erogenous spots. This is a great way to get some intense anal stimulation and to experience what it means to wear a powerful cock ring.
