Cock 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.
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.
- 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.
