How Cock Rings Can Help You Have Better Sex

You’ve probably seen penis rings, a.k.a. cock rings, on the shelf at a sex shop or your local store. But you might not know that the cock ring is the superfood of sex toys: It increases your performance and improves your pleasure in many different ways. And unlike other sex toys that need extensive preparation (e.g., masturbation sleeves, butt plugs, and anal beads), you can easily pop on a cock ring within moments and be ready to go.

 

A circular band that wraps around the base of your penis, a cock ring can make your erection bigger and harder; it can also help you last longer during sex and even help your partner reach orgasm. Regardless of the advantages of cock rings, some people with a penis may still be worried about sticking their members into a snug little hoop. So if you’re curious about trying one, here’s some benefits of using a cock ring. The benefits of penis rings:

They Help You Maintain an Erection, Even If You Have a Problem Getting One

No matter what kind of toy you use, they all work similarly: the ring traps blood inside the shaft of your penis, which allows you to maintain an erection. A tight-fitting ring at the base of your penis can also help prevent “venous leakage,” a kind of erectile dysfunction that results from tissues in your penis failing to lock in the blood properly.

They Boost Your Confidence

Erections require relaxation. Stressing about enduring hard may prevent you from doing just that. Using a penis ring may help alleviate some of that performance anxiety. A cock ring can also increase your confidence size-wise. Men of all sizes can benefit from the extra blood in the penis, making their junk look bigger.

They Can Delay and Boost Your Orgasm

Anecdotally, some men say that cock rings can help delay ejaculation by squeezing the area surrounding the base of the penis and testicles. Which makes sense: It’s almost like a modified version of the squeeze technique, a standard tactic to delay orgasm. There are also penis rings with a second ring that wraps around your testicles. That second ring pulls your testicles down, which allows delaying ejaculation.

They Can Make Sex Better for Your Partner

If your partner is female, she may need extra help getting off: only a small percentage of women can reach orgasm from penetrative sex alone. Vibrating cock rings can help stimulate your partner’s clitoris during intercourse. Other cock ring models have built-in “girth extenders” that cause your penis to feel wider to your partner when you’re inside them if that’s something they’re down to try.
