Beginner's Guide To Cock Rings




Are you ready to make yourself the happiest man in the world?! Well, you know you’ve found ‘the one’ when you are completely comfortable, want to show you have the ‘full package’, and you’re able to go harder and longer than ever before! By ‘the one’ we are, of course, referring to your brand new cock ring.


So, whether it’s prolonged pleasure, superior stimulation, greater girth or sadistic satisfaction that really floats your boat, a cock ring will be a welcome addition to any sex play. It’s about time you showed your penis some love, and as always UberKinky is on hand to help you do just that!

 
What is a Cock Ring & How Does it Work?

What is a Cock Ring & How Does it Work?

Here comes the science...


When you become a wee bit excited, blood flow to your manhood increases dramatically. This ensures that it is big and strong enough to perform the most gratifying of tasks. The purpose of a cock ring is to trap this blood inside the penis and create what is often referred to as a ‘super erection’.


The body is very good at pumping blood in, but not so good at actively pumping out. That means wearing a cock ring will restrict the blood flow out, but shouldn’t necessarily affect the blood being pumped in. It is therefore possible for the cock to become more engorged and bigger than ever before. Additionally, when blood flow to the penis starts to decline, you will remain rock solid. Wearing a cock ring will therefore delay ejaculation. The increased pressure will also heighten sensitivity and orgasm.


You really can’t argue with science!

 
safety

Safety First!

Mood spoiler alert! We don’t want to kill the mood, but let’s talk safety before moving on. It’s crucial that you pay attention to this section to avoid any unnecessary mishaps with the new love of your life. Remember; when striving for ultimate penis perfection, it is important to go slowly. If at any time you feel in pain please stop immediately. In the extremely unlikely event that priapism occurs (penis does not return to flaccid state), or you cannot remove the cock ring, you should try plunging your valuables into cold water, or treating with an ice pack. Failing that, it may be time to take a trip to the emergency room, but don't be embarrassed, it's nothing they haven't seen before! There are even specially designed tools just for this type of incident.

If you suffer from any serious erectile problems, including erectile dysfunction, a cock ring should not be used in an attempt to ‘cure’ the problem. You may find that a ring will help you to maintain an erection; however, in cases where there could be an underlying issue it is essential to seek urgent medical advice.

It is vitally important to everyone here at UberKinky that you always practice safe sex play. So please follow these tips and help us to sleep easy!

safety

Do

  • Trim the hair around the penis and testicles to avoid snagging
  • Use plenty of lubricant on the ring, shaft and testicles
  • Avoid cock rings with hard plastic stimulators as they can cause bruising
  • Remove immediately if you experience any pain, swelling or loss of sensation
  • Check there’s not rubbing if wearing a condom. We don’t want any nasty surprises, do we?!
safety

Don't

  • Leave your cock ring on for more than 20-30 minutes
  • Use a cock ring to treat serious erectile problems
  • Wear a cock ring if you are taking any blood thinning medication
  • Use a cock ring if you have a diabetes or any nerve/blood disorders
  • Sleep in your cock ring
  • Use a makeshift cock ring. This is not an appropriate time for, “here’s one I made earlier”!
 
How to Use a Cock Ring

How to Use a Cock Ring

How to wear a cock ring

Don’t balls it up! Here’s how you wear a cock ring...

Many cock rings are simply worn around the base of the penis, however; some others (known as cock and ball rings) are designed to be worn around the testicles as well. Don your ring while you play alone, during sex, or just during the day to jut out your Johnson; the choice is yours!


How to put on a cock ring

Trust us; it’s not rocket science! In fact, cock rings are incredibly simple to put on. Because they are worn in either one of two ways, around the base of the penis or the testicles, we have summarised them both for you;

 
Wearing A Cock Ring - Penis Only

Wearing A Cock Ring - Penis Only

Look after number 1! Cock rings are made using either a stretchy material, or a more rigid one, such as metal. The easiest to put on are those that are more flexible; they can even be put on when erect. As always, make sure you have applied plenty of lube for added comfort and ease. Then simply stretch out your ring so that it fits over the head of your penis with ease. If you can, keep it stretched and take it all the way down to the base. At this point, release the ring GENTLY (and we mean gently). Alternatively, once the ring is over the head you may slide the ring down to the base. Rigid rings should only be placed on the penis when it is flaccid. It should therefore side down to the base with ease (if your measurements are correct). Once you start to get excited, you’ll find that the ring is the perfect fit!

Wearing A Cock Ring - Cock & Balls

Wearing A Cock Ring - Cock & Balls

Don’t drop the ball by ignoring our advice; this is the best and easiest way to put on a cock and ball ring. Right, first things first; make sure you’re soft before you start... think unsexy thoughts, think unsexy thoughts! Now, simply tuck the testicles into the ring, one at a time, so that it rests above them. Fold the head of your penis down through the ring and push up to the base. Always make sure you use plenty of lube beforehand to ensure this process is as comfortable as possible. Then, have a ball!

Types of Cock Rings

It’s time to pop that all important question; “which ring should I buy?” If you really like it and you’ve decided to put a ring on it, you need to make sure you choose ‘the one’ that’s right for you. There are so many cock rings available, and they come in many different shapes, sizes and materials, so which will be right for you? We recommend a simple ring made from a flexible material like silicone to begin with, but if you find yourself struggling to ejaculate in the company of your new penis pal, it may be worth purchasing a ring designed for quick release. We aim to please here at UberKinky, so we’ve broken down the different styles available to help you decide;

Cock Cage

“What”, I hear you ask, “Is better than a cock ring?” How about three, five or even seven cock rings?! A cock cage has multiple rings attached together in one handy device. Predominately made from metal, these rings can be very unforgiving, so make sure you choose one that will fit. Fly solo, or enjoy some spectacular cage diving. We don’t recommend a cock cage to beginners.

You may be feeling ‘dirty’ after your play, but it is imperative that you clean your ring after every use. If toys are not cleaned properly they can harbour bacteria and transmit infections.

How to Measure For a Cock Ring

How to Measure For a Cock Ring

This is for all of you naughty guys that think you know best ;)


For those that follow our advice and choose a flexible or adjustable ring, this information is not relevant. Flexible rings are very much a ‘one size fits all’ and adjustable rings are just that.... adjustable! However, if you like to dabble in the ‘hard stuff’, getting your ring size correct is absolutely essential. Follow this simple step-by-step list and you’ll be well on your way to penis perfection in no time;

SIZE MATTERS
1.

SIZE MATTERS

Arm yourself with a tape measure

DON’T COCK UP

DON’T COCK UP

Make sure you’re hard before you start to take any measurements

MEASURE YOUR MANHOOD

MEASURE YOUR MANHOOD

Wrap the tape measure around the base of your penis to establish the circumference (for a cock & ball ring, measure around the penis and the testicles)

PERVERTED PLANNING

DEVIANT DIVISION

Divide this number by 3.142 (Pi) to obtain your required cock ring diameter

DON’T BE THE ODD ONE OUT
5.

DON’T BE THE ODD ONE OUT

If the result is an odd number always opt for the larger size

Selecting the correct ring size is vital. If it is too tight may stop blood flow completely, causing pain and leading to other complications. We’re sure you want to take care of your prized position, so measure carefully. If your ring is too loose it won’t do any damage, however it won’t do the job it is designed for either.


We know some of you like to exaggerate the truth when it comes to penis size ;) However, this is definitely a time when honesty is the best policy!

lubricant

Which Lube To Use?

As with any play, lubricant is a ‘must’! It may not seem necessary in this case, but not only does it make it easy to ‘slip’ your ring on, it also enhances sensations and avoids pinching and hair pulling, although we do realise that some of you are into that sort of thing! We recommend a drop of the following water based lubes for your penis pleasure;

What Next?

So you followed our advice, but now you’re ready for the ‘hard stuff’? Well go ahead, you’ve earned it; it’s time for some well deserved experimentation! Why not try cock rings made from different materials and with different features? You may also want to gradually build up the length of time you wear your ring for, and even wear under clothes to enhance your 'package'. Please pay attention to what your body is telling you though; you only get one penis so make sure you look after it!
