This was my first time ordering body jewelry of this kind, and I eagerly awaited its arrival. It arrived fairly quickly (although not quick enough for my anticipation :-) -- under 7 days as I recall. Couldn't wait to try it, and was getting very aroused just taking it out of the discreet packaging it was delivered in. Washed and sterilized it carefully, generously lubed the insertion shaft, plus a drop or two at the opening of my urethra, and O-M-G!!!! As a first timer at urethral play, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get it all the way in, but that was not a problem. The hardest part was getting the ring completely over my very aroused glans, but with a little more lube and patience I got it slid in place and held behind the ridge of my penile head. The pressure ball caused a slight stinging sensation on the first use, but nothing that I would call unpleasant. ;-D That sensation has lessened with subsequent uses. Like others, I at first thought I probably should have ordered a larger ring, but now after multiple uses, I like what I have. When wearing the piece in a non-aroused state, which I can do now and enjoy just as much, the ring fits comfortably over the head of my penis and holds it in place. I guess I'm a grow-er, not a show-er. Back on the site now to order something new to start 2013 off on the right note!!
