Cock rings: your guide

Different cock rings

What is a cock ring?

A cock ring is a ring that is placed around the base of the penis, or around the penis and testicles together (like the 8 Ball Cock Ring).

They’re usually made of silicone, rubber or leather.

Sometimes they’re also known as tension rings or erection rings.

What does it do?

The ring is placed over the penis before it becomes erect.

During an erection, the ring slows the flow of blood in the penis, which helps keep a stronger erection for longer and can also cause a more intense orgasm.

They can be particularly helpful for men who struggle to keep an erection, and can also be used to keep an erection after ejaculation.

Some cock rings, like our 4US Cock Ring, also vibrate, which can add pleasure for the wearer and for a partner too.

Other rings can also be used alone or with a partner. The Rudy-Rings Cock Ring comes as a double ring, but can be torn in two to share.

Can I use a cock ring if I have a disability?

Cock rings can be helpful and enjoyable for people with disabilities.

For men who have decreased sensitivity in their genital area, a vibrating cock ring can help them to experience an erection. On the other hand, some people with hypersensitivity can find vibrating toys unpleasant, but a silicone cock ring that just sits around the base of the penis can help add pleasure without discomfort.

Cock rings like the 4US Cock Ring are ideal for people who have dexterity problems, or struggle to grip, as the length of it is easier to hold than a small ring.

Removing a cock ring

Cock rings should not be worn for more than 30 minutes and it’s important not to fall asleep whilst wearing one.

They should also be removed if your penis or testicles start to feel numb or cold, or there is any pain.

The cock rings available from FPA Pleasure are made of soft silicone, so they are fairly stretchy. Some cock rings, made from harder materials, are less flexible on size. It’s important to wear a cock ring that is a good fit, and not too tight, as it could cut off the flow of blood completely and be hard to remove.

You might find adding lube helps when it comes to removing the cock ring.

Watch out for…

A cock ring should enhance your erection, but not so much that it causes swelling.

If you see or feel anything unusual then take the ring off immediately.

Cock rings made of metal can cause a rash or skin reaction in some men.
