All About Cock Rings
A cock ring literally is a ring. It can be made of various materials: stretchy rubber, jelly rubber, silicone, neoprene, cloth, leather, or even metal (though i wouldn’t recommend the last two for your first cockring because they can be uncomfortable or painful). As the name implies, cock rings are meant to encircle the penis and often the testicles as well.
A cock ring can be used to restrict the flow of blood in a penis, which can help a man attain and maintain and thicker and harder erection, as well as delay his orgasm. (However, it is advised that a cock ring be removed before ejaculation to enhance the orgasm and avoid problems.)
I would suggest the softer rubber rings because they restrict the blood flow without causing any damage to the tissue.
Another, more equitable use for the cock ring is for the stimulation of your partner’s genitals as well as your own. Jelly rings are made to give you to option to wear them higher up on the shaft of the penis and often have knobs or spikes for stimulating your partner. Some rubber rings have ticklers affixed for clitoral stimulation and some even come with a vibrating attachment!
Using a cock ring alone or with a partner can be a simple way to spice up your sex life. But remember that the cock ring can be dangerous if not used correctly. A cock ring that fits over the testicles should be taken on and off very carefully. It is also important to ensure that you have the right sized ring to prevent tissue damage. To find the diameter of a snug fitting ring, measure the distance around the penis and testicles (at the base, behind the scrotum) and then divide by 3.1. Don’t go smaller than that.
I also don’t recommend snapping the ring while you are wearing it, since that could be rather painful. ^_~
