Do Cock Rings Work? Your How to Guide

A lot of people use a cock ring to maintain their erections and sometime even to increase the size of their penis. Cock rings are used in the treatment of quite a few symptoms like; erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sexual endurance and sexual endurance and sometimes it is used just for pleasure purposes.
But in any case, whatever reason you will be using a cock ring for they will end up giving you an erection that lasts longer.


What Cock Ring is Right For Me?
For the ones that aren't sure about what cock rings are and it’s the first time you’re hearing t for the first time. There are two types of cock rings, ones that go over the penis (shaft) or ones that go around the testicles and shaft.
Cock rings which are smaller in diameter are the ones that are worn around the shaft only and the ones with a bigger diameter are worn around both the testicles and shaft together. But according to the sort of material that consists in the making of the cock ring they can be worn around both places (shaft only and testicles and shaft together). Most cock ring products come with instructions and description of how to use it in case you are not sure.


Soft Rings
Soft rings are a type of cock ring that is normally made up from materials like PVC, silicone or thermoplastic rubbers allowing for more stretching. Out of these three ones silicone ones are the ones that last the longest while thermoplastic rubber ones will allow for more flexibility as they will be able to stretch a lot more. There are some cock rings that are made from both thermoplastic rubbers and silicone which are probably the best soft cock rings to buy.
Soft cock rings are perfect for people that are using them for the first time as they are very flexible and more adjustable than hard plastic or even metal cock rings. SOft cock rings also help in making the penis look bigger.


Should You Get a Thin Ring or a Thick Ring?
Thin soft rings are perfect for people who are looking for more versatility as they would be able to be worn around both the shaft and testicles at the same time or just the shaft by itself.
Thicker rings are a little bit more for people who have used cock rings more often and knows what exactly they are looking for. Thick soft rings cover more area, are very comfortable and they make the penis stick out even more. Purchase one according to what your preferences are because each one has their own advantages.


Hard Rings
Hard rings are more rigid and much less flexible than soft rings. Hard rings are generally made up of materials like steel, plastic, aluminum and even glass. The advantage of a hard is that they remain very stable and they won't expand rather stay put which leads to a harder and longer erection as well a delayed ejaculation. Just like soft rings, hard rings can be worn around the shaft or even around testicles and shaft together.
Hard rings are much more durable than soft rings though and only one hard ring would be needed for a lifetime. Unlike soft rings, with hard rings, you can use any sort of lubricant because hard rings won't get worn out and the lubricant won't make the material crack losing its durability, while the silicone or rubber that is used to make soft rings would crack.
Hard cock rings won't disturb your pubic hair as the material won't make the hairs stick which can be a huge pain relief unlike the soft rings which might stick to hairs and would be a little painful when removing the cock ring, so you don't need to specially groom yourself down there before wearing a hard cock ring. Hard rings are more commonly used by people who are more experienced users of cock rings.


Making Sure You Get The Right Size
The one main and big disadvantage that comes with hard rings compared to soft rings is the fact  that hard cock rings have very specific sizes, so you will have to measure the diameter of your shaft and have to buy a specific sized hard cock ring, Soft cock rings have the ability to stretch so basically it would be like a free size which would fit any size of penis.
To make sure you have the best fit for your penis make sure that a tiny room is kept even when the cock ring is slipped into position so that when the penis gets erect it has that space to grow into. If you plan on wearing a cock ring around the shaft only then make sure that it is firmly tight but not too tight.
When you plan on using a cock ring around the testicle and shaft together then make sure that the diameter of the cock rings is just about a little bigger than the diameter of the area that you plan to put it around while your penis is flaccid. The ring should be able to easily slip on and off.


How Do I Measure My Size?
There are a few things you would need when you're going to measure the circumference of your shaft or the area with the shaft and testicles and they are; a measuring tape, a marker, some string and a pair of scissors.
First, you need to take the piece of string and place it around the shaft or around the testicles and shaft area and where the ropes meet each other, use your marker and mark that point.
Next, from that point take your pair of scissors and cut out that piece of string. Now with that measuring tape, you’ve got place the string on top of it and measure the length of the string.
For the final step divide whatever number you get for the length of the string by pi () for an accurate result or even the number 3.14.


Types of Hard Cock Rings
Metal bands are the most rigid type of hard cock rings that are available on the market. They offer a very different sort of feel because they are much wider than any other hard cock rings. They will make the penis look a lot bigger because they are thick, just like thick soft rings. Metal bands have their own set of advantages such as getting much harder and longer erections and a delayed orgasm and ejaculation.

Glass rings are very thick and this helps immensely in increasing  the durability of the cock ring. Glass rings are unique in the sense that they can be customised to be made with ridges and bumps on them. Glass rings look just the same as other cock rings and the penis needs to be pushed into the cock ring. Making the penis look a lot bigger and will give you a delayed ejaculation and a longer erection.

There is a less expensive version of metal band cock rings and they are known as metal-o-rings, these cock rings are much thinner than other hard cock rings and when they are used properly they can increase the duration of the penis greatly and also delay the ejaculation time by quite a bit.


Adjustable Cock Rings
There are cock rings which can be adjusted, and these ones are known as adjustable cock rings, these are for the people who are worried about putting a metal band around their private part.
If by any chance you manage to buy a cock ring and it happens to be a smaller size than anticipated and then you place it around your shaft, when your penis becomes erect it can cause serious injury to that section of your body, blood flow could get cut and you could lose feeling of that area. So always be careful of what size you buy. Adjustable cock rings are a perfect choice as they can easily be removed when you feel the slightest uneasiness.


How to Use a Cock Ring and Instructions
There are two places where a cock ring can be placed upon, one is over the shaft and the other is over the shaft and testicles together. A cock ring that is based on a stretchy material should be placed around the penis when it is a little erect as to not cut off blood circulation. But if you’re going to put it around the testicles and shaft then you can do it either when it's flaccid or when it's erect. When placing the cock ring make sure that you push it all the way down to the base, then go ahead and stimulate yourself and the cock ring will do the rest of the job by holding that erection.
Hard rings should be placed on the penis before an erection occurs since it is not flexible or adjustable and has a stable size. Slide the ring into position wherever that may be, around the shaft or around the testicles and shaft. This will allow for the erection to last longer and will cause a delayed ejaculation.  Never force a hard ring into position as it could lead to an injury.

Snap-on rings should be attached to the penis just before you get a full erection in order to get the best fit of the cock ring. After the cock rings have been placed pull on the penis to fix the cock ring and push it towards the base to get a better placement. Start to stimulate yourself and as you get an erection the ring will get tighter causing a longer and harder erection.
