There is a variety of different cockrings available. When used correctly, the ring limits the flow of blood to the penis, thus prolonging “steadfastness” and ideally they are also a non-chemical alternative to Viagra&Co. There are a number of other benefits associated with wearing cock rings (sometimes called penis rings):
– increases sensation of pleasure
– a tighter erection
– higher touch sensitivity
– stronger orgasms
– makes the penis look bigger
Adjustable cockrings are the perfect option for men who want to have their first experience with the use of a cockring. Because they are adjustable, they offer the possibility to vary and control the setting. They can also be worn as a bracelet, to always have them with you.

You can also put them on before and during the erection, which is not so easy with other cockrings. There are many different models. I prefer leather straps (with snaps – easy to open) or silicone cock rings (stretchy, easy to clean, snaps are usually a bit tighter).
O-rings are thick, expandable rings made of flexible materials. Handling requires some practice, as they are not easy to put on – preferably before assembly, otherwise, the diameter is not sufficient for putting them on.

How do you put on an O-ring?
Putting them on requires a little more time and practice. To start, push the “balls”, first one, then the other, through the ring (slowly) and then pull the ring up and push the penis through the hole of the ring. To make it easier and not to pinch, I use some lubricant. Of course, putting it on and taking it off does not work during an erection.
Metal rings looking cool and with their weight, they add extra tension. They are not stretchy (how should they), so you need to know the exact diameter, and they should only be put on before the erection. It takes some practice and experience. Metal rings always make me a bit nervous because you can’t take them off during an erection and blood stasis. For beginners certainly not suitable. There are simply too many problems that can occur. As an alternative, there are metal rings that consist of two magnetic parts. However, sometimes the magnets are not strong enough to hold while “playing”.
How long can you wear a cock ring?
Although there is no exact rule, it is recommended not to wear a cockring for more than 20 minutes, or at least to “take a break” from time to time. In any case, you should always remove it immediately if it becomes unpleasant or hurts. Which can be problematic with a solid metal ring.
