For those of you who want to spice things up in the bedroom, but don’t want to try anything too intimidating or kinky, you could try using a vibrating cock ring. The name might suggest that it’s all about him, but rest assured ladies, a good quality vibrating cock ring provides pleasure for both partners. That’s why they are also known as Love Rings, Couples’ Rings or Pleasure Rings.

As the name suggests, Cock rings are flexible rings worn on the base of a penis. For him, they enhance and prolong an erection, which improves sexual performance and increases gratification. For her, they provide clitoral stimulation. They have uses other than the intended, but we’ll get to that later. So why bother prolonging an erection? We’ll speak on behalf of women here momentarily. 😉 It’s well known that men have a far easier time reaching climax during intercourse. Women need a little more time. This is known as the ‘orgasm gap’. Since a cock ring prolongs an erection and ejaculation, it is a way to bridge that gap; by slowing him down and speeding things up for her, this increases the potential for climaxing together…

To understand how cock rings improve sexual performance we really need to go back to basics and look at what happens during an erection. When a man becomes aroused the arteries in the penis dilate and fill with blood causing the shaft to enlarge and become hard. By placing a cock ring around the shaft it allows blood to flow into the penis, but stops it from flowing back out, therefore trapping blood in the shaft of the penis. This allows the penis to stay erect for longer.

Now that we’ve got the ‘science lesson’ out of the way we can move on to the juicy stuff.  These secret weapons really can make a difference to your bedroom sessions. Aside from making him bigger and harder for longer, the rumbly vibrations from the vibrator travels up his shaft stimulating both partners. With every thrust the vibrator taps against her clitoris enhancing her experience even further. All of these features combined produce much stronger climaxes. 

Vibrating cock rings can also be used during foreplay for clitoral stimulation. For example, a man can put the vibrating ring on his fingers whilst stimulating her. Girl-girl couples can also get great use out of them this way. During solo use a woman can put it on her own fingers and stimulate her clitoris. A man can use it for an enhanced masturbation experience.

* While cock rings are perfectly safe to use, it is advised not to wear one for longer than half an hour to prevent cutting off blood circulation and possibly damaging nerves. The ring can go on as soon as intimacy occurs. This will enable a larger erection. When you have climaxed, or decide to stop, the ring can be removed and the blood flowing out of the penis returns to normal. If you experience any pain or discomfort when the ring is on you should remove it immediately.

Cock rings made of silicone tend to be stretchy, so they adapt to fit different sizes. If you decide to use lubricant try to keep it to a minimum to prevent the ring from slipping around. Go for a water-based lubricant on rings made from silicone, as lubricant-based lubes can wear down silicone over time. 

 

Myths about cock rings:

You can’t ejaculate with them. This is incorrect. Ejaculation may take longer, but it is possible.

You can’t wear a condom. This is also incorrect. There is no problem wearing a condom.

 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR:

Comfort is paramount, since this sex toy is worn on his (important) body part and touches against her (important) body part. Choose a ring that’s made of high-tech material, like silicone. It’s soft and gentle on your body. Make sure it has multiple pleasure settings, so you can find a rhythm that works for both of you. We would suggest one that is waterproof, rechargeable, and has a perineum and/or clitoral stimulator.
