Penis Rings (c-rings or cock rings) are designed to maintain erections and create more intense orgasms. They are worn around the base of the penis and testicles, and restrict the blood flow from leaving the penis. When the wearer finally does ejaculate, the sensation is much more intense. This is because it took a longer time to ejaculate since the penis is filled with additional blood.
Why should I wear a Penis Ring?
Penis Rings are a fun and exciting addition to anyone’s sex life, whether with a partner or solo. They slow the blood flow out of the penis, keeping the penis harder.
Rings are most commonly worn for the following reasons:
- Creating firmer and longer lasting erections
- More intense orgasms
- Assisting a man who has trouble maintaining an erection
- Giving the penis a different look making it appear longer
- They feel good (the penis or testicles have a firm grip around them)
How does it feel to wear a Penis Ring?
Sensation might range from slight discomfort to lots of pressure. Another way to think about it is think about when you get your blood pressure taken. When the cuff around your arm tightens, your arm gets that tingly, tight and slightly uncomfortable. Pressure and keeping the blood flow in 1 area can make nerves super sensitive. Therefore, when the cuff comes off (or when there is finally a release), there is a stronger feeling of relief (or a stronger orgasm).

How do you put on a Penis Ring?
Adjustable rings can be put on at any point during an erection by stretching the ring so that it fits snuggly around the base of the penis or behind the testicles. Stretch the ring to remove it easily at any time.
Non-Adjustable rings should always be put on a flaccid penis. Hold the ring under the testicles and insert one at a time. Then, pull the penis through the ring making sure to adjust for comfort. Reverse these steps to remove the ring from a flaccid penis.
How long should I wear a Penis Ring?
To prevent damage or bruising to the penis, a ring should not restrict the blood flow for more than 20 minutes at a time. Beginners should only wear a ring for 5-10 to make sure it's not too tight. If discomfort is felt at any time, the ring should be removed as soon as possible. (Also, if you have erectile dysfunction, a blood clotting disorder, any peripheral vascular or nerve disease, or are taking any blood-thinning medication, please check with you doctor before trying a penis ring.)
How do I measure for a Penis Ring?
Penis rings are measured by diameter. This is the measurement across the widest part of the ring's hole. You want a penis ring with a diameter that's smaller than your measurements - this will ensure you have the constriction and tightness that you need. We suggest starting with a penis ring that is a bit smaller than your measurements. The smaller you go, the tighter the penis ring will be.
For rings worn at the base of the penis, take a piece of string or soft tape measure and wrap it around the base of an erect penis. That will give you the circumference.
For rings worn around the penis and testicles, measure and wrap around behind the testicles and as close to the body as you can while the penis is erect for the circumference.
For the diameter of a ring, divide your measurement by 3.14. For example: If the penis measures 7” circumference, divide by 3.14, which equals 2.23”. A ring that is smaller than 2.23” but is within .25”-.5” will be needed for a comfortable fit.
