How to Avoid Problems with Cock Rings

Cock RingCock rings are amazing sex toys that can be used for many different things. Their main purpose is to make erections harder and longer lasting, so the man will greatly improve his performance. Also, orgasms are known to be more powerful and longer, so it’s undeniable cock rings provide a lot of pleasure to both the wearer and his partners.

That being said, in order to use cock rings and glans rings safely, it’s vital to know how to use them properly and how to avoid potential problems.

Avoiding Problems

The most important thing to ensure satisfaction is to stay safe while using cock rings. Keep in mind that penis rings are powerful devices and thus should be used according to the guidelines and instructions. They are made to provide great pleasure but they can cause harm if you don’t use them properly.

The first thing you need to know is where the potential danger comes from. Think about how cock rings work. They are worn around the erect penis or testicles in order to “trap” the blood inside the penis, thus making the erection harder and bigger. This is what makes them so powerful: they are among the best toys to improve a man’s erection and his performance in bed.

However, this is also where potential problems can develop. Since penis rings are made to be worn around the penis and provide a tight grip, they can also significantly reduce the blood flow to the penis. They can be too tight and they can cause further problems if they are worn for too long.

Leaving a cock ring on for too long can lead to blood coagulation inside the penis, which makes it difficult to lose the erection. This is a very painful condition and can be dangerous, since it can cause numerous damages to the erectile tissue. This condition requires urgent medical attention in order to prevent even worse consequences. Cock rings that are too tight or sized incorrectly can cause numerous problems and endanger your health.

For these reasons, it’s vital to always wear a correctly sized penis rings and glans rings and to leave them on only for shorter periods of time.

Stay Safe

How to stay safe with cock rings?

As stated above, the best way to avoid problems with cock rings and to stay safe is to always wear a cock ring that is a good fit for your penis. Ideally, a cock ring should provide a good grip without ever becoming too tight for you to wear. To goal is to increase the erection but not to swell up your penis to the point of pain and discomfort.

It’s vital to have a good fit and to find a properly sized cock ring for you. This is the only way to ensure safety.

Another thing to think about is how long to wear your cock ring. Some cock rings, such as leather cock rings, can be worn for longer periods of time, but even in these cases make sure not to wear them for hours and hours.

Metal cock rings, on the other hand, are made only for short-term wear. You should never leave them on for longer than 20 minutes or so. Wearing them for longer is not safe and can lead to numerous problems.

Also, always make sure to put your cock ring slowly and to take it off with care. In case it causes you pain or discomfort at any point, remove it immediately.  In case you notice bruises or other problems make sure to consult your doctor. Follow these guidelines to stay safe and enjoy your cock rings to the fullest.

Difference between Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds

plugsUrethral sounds and penis plugs are the most popular urethral toys in the world.

If you are interested in urethral play and stimulation, it’s vital to know the difference between the most popular urethral devices and how to use them properly.

This is the only way to achieve satisfaction.

Before You Start

A special caution must be taken by those who wish to try urethral stimulation for the first time. Keep in mind, some urethral toys are made especially for the more advanced users and you should not use them unless your urethra is stretched properly and unless you are familiar with more basic forms of urethral stimulation.

It’s always best to start with smaller toys and build your way up from there. If you can’t find specializes stretcher and trainer toys, start with the smallest, smoothest urethral toy you can find.

Also, one important thing to keep in mind at all times: use only toys specially designed for this type of stimulation. While it may seem tempting to try different things, do not ever shove a random object down your penis. Always stick to proper urethral devices only.

Penis Plugs and Urethral Sounds: The Difference

Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are toys designed for urethral stimulation. In some ways, they achieve the same purpose and are used in a similar way. Both are designed to be used for urethral penetration, that is, they are inserted into the urethral opening. Most of these toys are designed for men, but some women can use them as well. If you are a woman who wishes to use urethral toys it’s best to stick to smaller toys.

Most users of urethral toys are men, which means most of the popular types of toys are made with men in mind. Both penis plugs and urethral sounds are inserted into the urethra and can be used to stimulate penis on the inside.

So, what’s the difference? The main difference is the shape and length, though there are some variations. Typically speaking, urethral sounds are longer and they are made for deep urethral exploration. This is why they are recommended for more experienced users who are already familiar with urethral stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, tend to be shorter. They are great for beginners who wish to try this type of stimulation for the first time. On the other hand, there are more extreme penis plugs out there, made with experienced users in mind, so they are definitely not a beginner’s toy only.

Another difference to keep in mind is the purpose. Urethral Sounds are actually medical instruments used by real doctors. This is why they are known as medical toys, though they are not used for medical play only. That being said, urethral sounds used as sex toys are still shaped in the same (or very similar) way as the medical toys used in hospitals. Some of them are long enough to reach all the way down to the prostate and bladder. In these cases, a special care must be taken not to damage these organs, though it’s also possible to use urethral sounds for prostate stimulation.

Penis plugs, on the other hand, are sex toys only. They are usually not as long to reach that deep into urethra. They also come in many different shapes and textures. They are made for penis stimulation and they can accompany different beads and other curves made for enhancing the effect. Some penis plugs also come with a glans ring. The ring is there to perform a dual function: it keeps the plug safely inside urethra and it also provides additional stimulation during use.

The main differences between urethral sounds and penis plugs:

  • Penis Plugs: shorter, made in numerous designs (straight, wavy, bumpy, etc.), made for penis stimulation but usually not long enough for prostate stimulation, often include glans rings for added stimulation and to keep the plug in place.
  • Urethral Sounds: longer, straight or slightly curved, used as medical devices (and for medical play), made for deep urethral stimulation. They come in several standard types: Hegar, Van Buren, Pratt, and more.

How to Wear a Glans Ring

Large Captive Replacement Glans Ring

Large Captive Replacement Glans Ring

Glans rings are popular sex toys made to enhance a man’s pleasure. These rings are carefully designed to provide a perfect grip and make erection stronger, particularly in the penis head. Thanks to glans rings, the penis head becomes harder and more pronounced, as well as more sensitive.

Another advantage to glans rings is that they benefit a man’s sexual partner. Both the wearer and his partner will benefit from added stimulation, harder erection and a stronger penis. Glans rings are more than just cool jewelry pieces – these functional cock rings truly hit all the right spots and make sex more exciting.

Different Types of Glans Rings

A glans ring is a special type of a cock ring made to be worn around the glans. It is typically adjusted just under the penis head, so it provides a nice grip and additional stimulation while also enhancing erections.

While regular cock rings can sometimes be used as glans rings, it’s strongly advised to use specially designed glans rings on your glans. They are made to be positioned under the penis head so they provide the perfect comfort. Also, purchasing a special glans ring makes it easier to find the best fit. This is why it’s best to seek glans rings specially made for this purpose and wear regular cock rings elsewhere on the penis (down the shaft, around the balls, etc.)

Metal glans rings are sturdy and provide a perfect grip. While they require a bit of experience to put on and take off, they provide much better results than glans rings made of other materials. Metal glans rings are specially designed to provide maximum stimulation with a good comfort for the wearer.

There are also special glans rings with an attached rod that’s inserted into urethra. These rings, also known as “sperm stoppers”, are made to provide unique urethral stimulation and stronger orgasms.

Glans rings can be used alone or in a combination with another sex toy. They can be paired with regular cock rings or ball rings, making a cock cage or a cock trap. These elaborate cock rings are made to stimulate the whole penis, from balls to the penis head.

Glans rings are often used in a combination with penis plugs. Penis plugs are great sex toys made for urethral stimulation. Many of them include a glans ring. Such a glans ring serves two purposes: it keeps the penis plug in place and it provides additional stimulation for the wearer.

How to Use a Glans Ring

Just like regular cock rings, glans rings also come in a wide range of sizes and materials. The choice of a glans ring will depend on a man’s anatomy, preferences and experience. Beginner users should stay away from heavy glans rings until they are fully accustomed to the feeling and sensations glans rings provide.

Typically, a glans ring is worn under the penis head when the penis is fully erect. For easier wear, make sure to use lube. The lube will make the ring slip on your penis easily and without any discomfort. This is particularly important for using metal glans rings. They tend to be very sturdy and sometimes tight, so you want to be able to slip it on and off easily.

At the same time, make sure that the ring is tight enough so it provides a perfect grip and doesn’t go off on its own. You don’t want your glans ring to slip off during sex or masturbation. This is why proper fitting is important.

How to Fit for a Glans Ring

A general rule of thumb for glans rings: you want them to be tight to provide a good grip, but also easy to put on and take off with the help of lube. To ensure this, it’s important to choose a glans ring of an appropriate size.

To measure properly for a glans ring, it’s best to take two measures: one when you’re soft and another one when you’re erect.

Take a string or a soft measuring tape and wrap it around your penis just below the head. Make sure to mark the measurement. Measure yourself at least two times: once when you’re flaccid and once when you’re erect. Even better, take several measurements for both flaccid and erect state and use the average value.

These numbers give you your circumference: one when you’re soft and the other when you’re hard. The difference between two measurements is typically between 0.5 and 1 inch, though other measurements are also possible. You will need to take all these measurements to make sure that the ring stays on when you’re soft but that it doesn’t become way too tight when you’re hard.

As an additional security, you can measure your corona (the widest point on your head) when you’re soft and when you’re hard. This is to make sure the glans ring doesn’t simply slip off.

Once you have your circumference measurements, divide them by 3.14 (pi). This will give you the diameter when you’re soft, when you’re hard and also the diameter of your corona. To choose an appropriate glans ring, use the largest ring that will not slip off but is also comfortable enough not to become too tight.

The measuring takes some practice or even trial and error. This is normal. Just be patient and you will find that perfect glans ring size you will wear for a great satisfaction.

Additional Tips

• A glans ring should be tight, but not uncomfortable. If you ever experience pain or if the ring stops your circulation altogether, make sure to remove it immediately.
• Never leave your glans ring on for too long. You need to give your penis some time to rest.
• Both circumcised and uncircumcised men can wear and enjoy glans rings; your circumcision status will not prevent you from enjoying this handy sex toy.
• Glans rings made of metal are the best because they provide the best grip and the most intense stimulation. However, make sure that the metal used is body safe (surgical steel, for example – not stainless steel!)
• The appropriate size will depend on your erection. If you are a major grower, you will find that a glans ring ends up being a bit too tight if you measured when you’re flaccid.
• If you have a very pronounced head (that sticks out from the shaft), it will be easier for a glans ring to stay on. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear a glans ring if your head is not so pronounced.
• If you are a beginner user, start slowly and be patient. It’s important to get used to the sensation and to learn how to put on the glans ring properly.
• Always use lube to make the experience more comfortable and satisfying!

Glans Rings

Double Ring Sperm Stopper

Double Ring Sperm Stopper

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.
