How to Put on a Metal Cock Ring (and How to Take it Off!)

How to Put on a Metal Cock RingCock rings bring so much fun: they make erections harder and your penis becomes more sensitive. Cock rings are probably the best and easiest way to enhance your performance for both you and your partner.

However, in order to be able to enjoy cock rings in your collection, you need to know how to put them on and take them off. Luckily, it is not a complicated process, but it does require some practice.

Also, keep in mind that if you wish to use metal cock rings you should never leave them on for too long. They restrict the blood flow so you need to take them off after 20 minutes or so in order to prevent injuries and other problems.

It Depends on the Type…

The first thing you need to know is that there are several different types of cock rings, and each type is worn differently. It is vital to know which type you have and how you wish to use it in order to know how to put it on.

The main types of cock rings:

  • Regular. This is a cock ring worn around the base of the penis.
  • Cock and ball ring. A penis ring worn around both penis and testicles. Some rings of this type are multiple rings (one ring for penis and the other for testicles).
  • Glans ring. A cock ring made to be worn around the glans (penis head).

There are some other, more complex forms (for example, the so-called Penile Backbone toy), but these are the basic types. If you wish to enjoy your cock ring you need to know which type you have and how to put it on.

Keep in mind that different types of cock rings may require different methods to put them on or take them off. The difference may come from the material, too. We focus on metal cock rings in this article, so rings made of other materials (especially the soft ones) may require a bit of a different method to put them on. Also, keep in mind that you will need to adjust your technique if the ring has any additional features (such as ticklers, screws, etc). What follows is a basic instruction on how to put on a basic cock ring.

Regular Cock Ring

A “regular” cock ring is a simple hoop that goes around the base of your penis. However, you may wear it a bit higher on the penis shaft if this feels more comfortable for you. The principle of putting it on is the same in both scenarios.

Metal cock rings should be put on when the penis is flaccid. Since the material is sturdy and rigid, it is nearly impossible to put it on during erection. For this reason, make sure that your penis is flaccid (or semi-erect at best).

Apply some lube on the inside of the ring and on the penis and then gently slip it over the penis head all the way down to the base of the penis. Once the ring is in place you can safely achieve erection. The ring should fit perfectly and stay in place once you are erect.

To take the ring off, wait until the erection is gone and then simply slip the ring off. If it feels sore, apply some lube to the penis and then remove the ring. Make sure to catch the ring – it may slip easily once the erection is gone.

Keep in mind that if you wish to wear your penis ring a bit higher on the shaft, it still has to fit. It means that you need an appropriate size so it doesn’t dig into the skin (a sign that the ring is too small) and doesn’t move up and down the penis (a sign that it’s too large). It should be the similar size as a ring worn around the base of the penis, but it’s not always identical. You need to take this into account if you wish to wear a ring higher on the shaft. For wearing a cock ring around the penis head, see “glans ring” section below.

Cock and Ball Ring

A cock and ball ring requires a similar technique as the above one, but it requires a bit more practice. It is absolutely crucial to be flaccid or else you won’t be able to put the ring on. Before attempting to put on the ring, make sure it’s lubed properly – both the ring and your penis. You will need a lot of lube to ensure comfort.

To put the ring on, slip testicles through the ring one at a time. If the ring is appropriately sized, there will be more space left above the testicles so you can slip in your penis through the ring. Take your flaccid penis and gently slip it through the ring. Position the ring all the way down to the base of the penis. When you’re done, the ring should go all the way from the base of your penis and around the testicles.

Multiple rings are cock and ball rings consisting of more than one hoop. Triple cock rings are particularly popular. To put them on, you will use a similar technique, only you won’t slip your penis and testicles through the same hoop. Identify the largest ring: that one is for testicles. Gently slip your testicles through it. After you’re done, slip your penis through the smaller ring that is of appropriate size for your penis (there are usually several sizes to choose from). If there are two rings, one goes around both penis and testicles, the second one goes around testicles and the smallest one goes around the base of the penis.

To take a cock and ball ring off, wait until the erection is gone and then simply do the above steps in the reverse order. Remove your penis from the ring first and then testicles, one by one. Make sure to use lube if needed.

Glans Ring

A glans ring is worn around the penis head. It is typically not difficult to put it on, as long as you have a good fit. It is vital to know your size – a size of your glans ring may not be the same as the one for your penis ring, so this is something to keep in mind.

To put your glans ring on, simply slip it over your penis head. It should rest just under the penis head comfortably when you are erect. Some glans rings can be put on even when you are erect, but it may cause some discomfort. For this reason, you may wish to do it while flaccid and to achieve erection later. Make sure to use plenty of lube so it’s comfortable.

It’s worth noting that glans rings often come with additional features. For example, they are often parts of penis plugs and other urethral toys, or they come as a part of a cock and anal toy. In this case, you should put the sex toy in place first (penis plug, anal intruder, etc.) and slip on the glans ring afterward.

Glans rings are typically easy to remove. Simply slip them off from the penis head. It’s easier to do when you are flaccid, so it’s strongly recommended to wait until the erection is gone.

Additional Tips

  • Keep in mind that metal cock rings are more difficult to put on than the stretchy ones. If you are used to stretchy, flexible rings, don’t be surprised if the metal ones require some practice.
  • As a general rule, metal cock rings cannot be put on when the man is erect – not can they be taken off. This is important to keep in mind when using metal cock rings.
  • There is a way to overcome the above problem in the case of emergency, but it should not be used all the time. The ring may slip off if you add more lube to it and to the penis. However, reserve this technique for emergency situations (if you need to take the ring off quickly, while you’re still erect, because of pain or injury). In ordinary situations, it’s best to wait until the erection is gone to take the ring off.
  • Never leave your metal cock ring on for too long. It should be worn for 15-20 minutes at a time, not more. The maximum is around 30 minutes. Make sure not to go over this time because you’re risking injuries and other problems.
  • If you experience pain or strong discomfort, make sure to take the ring off immediately.
  • If the pain and other problems persist, consult your doctor.

Safety Tips for Cock Ring Users

280tCock rings are amazing sex toys that can help you a lot. However, you need to know how to use them properly in order to stay safe. Both beginners and more experienced users should follow these tips.

Sometimes, more experienced users forget about safety and following the rules, which leads to accidents and other problems. Also, it is not unusual for people to forget about safety in the heat of the moment. In order to prevent those problems, it’s vital to keep all these basic tips in mind, especially if you choose to wear sturdy cock rings (metal cock rings or cock rings with additional features).

One word of warning: Keep in mind that cock rings are made to enhance your performance: to make your erections harder, stronger and long-lasting. However, they are not medical devices made to treat erectile dysfunction or other problems. Nor are they special devices designed for penis enlargement. Do not expect miracles: cock rings are made for a specific purpose but they are limited in how much of an effect they can bring. That being said, they will generally help. For example, men who experience a bit of weaker erections or who don’t last long might notice an improvement. The point is: cock rings work, but they cannot treat more serious problems.

Safety Tips:

  • Generally speaking, metal cock rings are not made for prolonged, long-term wear. To stay safe, you need to remove it every 15-20 minutes and you should not wear any metal cock rings for longer than 30 minutes at a time. Keep in mind that these rings restrict the blood flow, which can lead to numerous problems. To avoid these issues, let your penis and testicles rest before putting the ring on again.
  • Before you start using cock rings, particularly metal ones and other more intense types, it is useful to consult your doctor. Make sure it is safe for you to try cock rings. Cock rings are not recommended to people with certain conditions, such as blood disorders or diabetes, and in some cases it is forbidden for these people to use them at all. To stay on the safe side, always consult your doctor.
  • Any sharp, sudden pain is a bad news. While it might not signal that there is something serious going on, it is definitely a sign that you should remove your cock ring immediately. Leaving the ring on is dangerous and can lead to numerous problems. Do not hesitate: take it off right away.
  • Lube can help you a lot: it will keep the things smoother and thus safer. Not to mention more comfortable! When using lube with your cock ring, don’t forget to apply it generously to the ring itself AND your body: penis, testicles, glans and your hands (needed for putting the ring on and taking it off). If you wish to have sex with your partner, it’s also useful to apply lube to your partner’s body.
  • If you wish to use cock rings with condoms, you have to limit yourself to super-smooth rings without any sharp edges or additions. It is absolutely possible to wear a cock ring with a condom but you need to stay safe. Your cock ring should not rub too much on the condom because it might make it tear or slip off.
  • For more comfort and to avoid accidents, it’s useful to remove hair from your testicles and penis shaft. Cock rings can easily snag on the hair, which leads to discomfort. While it’s usually not particularly dangerous, it is sure uncomfortable and not something you wish to happen in the heat of the moment!
  • Typical warning signs: pain, swelling, increased discomfort, numbness, general loss of sensation, tingling feeling on the skin, redness, paleness or any other form of color change to your skin and penis tissue.
  • If you need to remove your cock ring in the case of an emergency but you cannot lose your erection, try using lube to make the ring slip off. You may also try to use some ice on your penis to make it lose some of its girth. If all of this fails, however, you will need to seek medical attention, since the ring cannot stay on for too long. Also, prolonged unwanted erections are bad, so it’s important to consult your doctor if you are unable to remove your cock ring.
  • If you notice any negative changes or if you experience prolonged pain, it’s best to consult your doctor. Be honest with them about your use of cock rings and other sex toys. This is the only way to receive a honest treatment and medical care you need.

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.

Design

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.

Cock Ring with Anal Intruder – Pleasure-fully Yours!

Thor's Cock Ring and Anal Hammer

Looking to enhance sex and make it more enjoyable then it already is, that is the goal for almost everyone. Cock rings are popular for a number of different reasons. Some men find that not only does the feeling of the cock ring around their penis and balls help their sex drive but the actual sight of the cock ring helps get them going as well. The main purpose of a cock ring is to slow the blood flow, thus making the erection last longer, which in turn can prove to be tons of fun for both parties involved. But what if adding another stimulation along with the cock ring could make the orgasm even better?

Most people are familiar with the female G-spot, but did you know that men have a G-spot as well? The prostate gland is basically considered the male G-spot. The prostate gland can be pushed upon to further stimulate the orgasm. A cock ring with anal intruder is a cock ring with an added curved bar with a ball on the end. When the cock ring is in place on the penis, the ball on the end of the curved bar will push against the anus hitting the male G-spot. Anal play is the best way to get to the male G-spot and makes for the best orgasm.

Before trying out a Cock Ring with Anal Intruder for the first time with a partner, you may want to masturbate with the ring on before trying with a partner for the first time to ensure there is not any pain or surprises that you won’t be prepared for when in the middle of intercourse. Using lube is a must when putting the cock ring on, but also the lube is to help ease the ball into place when penetrating. After the lubrication has been applied and the ball is in place “practice” thrusting while masturbating to help find the perfect spot that is not only comfortable but enhances the pleasures of the intruder.

After you are comfortable with how the Cock Ring with Anal Intruder works, you will be able to handle full intercourse with your partner. The cock ring intruder can be so much fun for both partners. Not only does the erection stay longer but as your partner is involved they help to push the intruder against the G-spot making for an even better orgasm for both the partners.

The Chain Gang male jewelry offers a wide variety of cock rings, glans rings and cock rings with intruders! Browse and see if you find your kind of stylish metal, here.

How to Measure for a Glans or Cock Ring

There are many different reasons why a man will chose to get or try out a cock ring or a glans ring. The purpose of a cock ring is to slow the blood flow to make the erection be more sensitive and last longer. The cock ring can be placed anywhere on the shaft of the penis however it works better if it is put on the penis closest to the body. Some men just enjoy the pressure caused by wearing a ring and some like it for the looks of it. A glans ring is supposed to be positioned right after the head of the penis. The most important part in selecting a glans ring or a cock ring is make sure to get the right size for you. Serious issues can arise if the ring is too tight.

 

The best way to measure the penis for the perfect fitting glans ring or cock ring is by using a string, a marking pen, and a ruler. To make sure that either the cock ring or glans ring fits best, there will need to be two measurements done.

 

The first measurement should be done while the penis is flaccid and the second should be done while the penis is erect. While measuring, it is important not to pull the penis skin tight because this will not give accurate measurements. Wrap the string around the penis and mark on the string with either a pen or marker where the sting comes together. Then lay the string out on the ruler; that is the first measurement.
After the circumference has been written down from both flaccid and erect positions they need to be converted to a decimal. Then the decimal needs to be divided by 3.14 (which is pie). That answer then needs to be changed back into fraction form, and that is the correct inner diameter ring size that is right for you. Just a side note, it is a good idea to round up to ensure that the ring is not too tight.

 

If for any reason the glans ring or cock ring starts to irritate the penis, it should be removed right away. Generally the only way to remove a cock ring is when the penis is not erect. If numbness or pain starts for any reason, the ring should be take off immediately. The glans ring and cock ring can be a lot of fun, that’s why it is important to get the correct measurements to avoid having any issues.

 

If you are having trouble finding the measurement that is right for you, email us here at The Chain Gang and we can help you with the conversions.
