How to Use a Cock Ring

How to Wear a Solid Cock Ring

How to use Pumps Safely

What are Cock Rings

  • Cock rings constrict the penis and keep blood inside, which is what makes the penis become, and stay, erect.
  • Many men enjoy the sensation of squeezing or fullness that cock rings create.
  • Some men find that cock rings delay orgasm. Other men report that they are more sensitive when wearing rings and orgasm more quickly.
  • Most men wear cock rings behind the testicles, although some wear them in front.
  • When you’re new to cock rings, take them off after 5-10 minutes to make sure it’s not too tight.
  • Some men enjoy wearing a ring during orgasm. Others prefer to take them off before they orgasm.
  • Rings with snaps are easier to take off with minimum interruption and let you experiment with the sizing.

Safety Tips

  • Adjustable rings are recommended for beginners since you can figure out what size fits best.
  • Solid rings can only be put on and taken off when your penis is soft. We don’t recommend them for first-timers. Choose a stretchy or snap-on ring instead.
  • If you have erectile dysfunction, a blood clotting disorder, any peripheral vascular or nerve disease, or if you take anticoagulants, aspirin, or any other blood-thinning medication, cock rings are not recommended without an OK from your doctor.
  • If you experience any discomfort or unusual body changes -- including bruising, pain, bleeding or loss of sensation -- discontinue use immediately and check with a sex-positive physician.

What are Pumps

  • Pumps draw blood into the penis, causing it to become erect.
  • Some men enjoy the way their penises look while using a pump. Others like the way suction feels.
  • Pumps do not permanently increase the size of the penis. Within a few minutes of taking the pump off, the penis goes back to its usual size.

Safety Tips

  • Pay attention to how things feel and stop using your pump if it feels uncomfortable.
  • Start off with just a few squeezes of the pump and increase slowly.
  • If you have erectile dysfunction, a blood clotting disorder, any peripheral vascular or nerve disease, or if you take anticoagulants, aspirin, or any other blood-thinning medication, pumps are not recommended without an OK from your doctor.
  • If you experience any discomfort or unusual body changes -- including bruising, pain, bleeding or loss of sensation -- discontinue use immediately and check with a sex-positive physician.
