The A-B-Cs of Cock Rings

cockringpicA staple item in just about every gay man’s night stand (or on your one night stands) is the famous cock ring. 

 

Did you know that this popular sex toy of today had an ancient predecessor made from goat’s eyelids?  I know, gross.  That’s what I thought but it’s true. That’s right! The history of cock rings dates back in the 13th century China where they would remove the eyelids from slain goats, treat them with chemicals and then place them inside of rings that the men would slip on themselves.

 

Interestingly enough, they were worn for sexual enhancement AND aesthetic adornment. Thankfully, as a culture, we’ve advanced and no longer have to sacrifice animals or preform any ancient Chinese torture to enhance and decorate our man junk.

 

Now that I’ve got you thinking about cock rings, old Chinese guys and goats, I thought it would be an appropriate time to actually have a little chat about cock rings–cock rings of today!

 

Fast forward almost 1,000 years and you can now find cock rings made from a little more PETA friendly (well, except for the leather ones) materials like silicone, metal, and leather. And straight or gay, cock rings are more popular today than ever before. We used to think these items as exclusively gay but some of the best and most interesting selection of cock rings can actually be found online at AdamEve.com and honestly, their prices are about a 1/3 of what the gay only stores are charging so you get more bang for your buck. (Pun intended).

 

In all these years of innovation, you may be wondering what exactly a cock ring does. Sure, you put it on your dick, but then what? What’s the point?

 

Cock ring are actually awesome and can serve several purposes.

 

Due to the blood flow restriction, the cock ring wearer can experience a harder erection. It can also help them last longer, so this is a great toy for any man who suffers from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction. However, it also great for any guy who just wants to be rock hard!  And let’s face it, when you’re talking about man on man sex, you always want to look your best for a little competitive “sword fighting”.

 

Cock rings can also add extra stimulation to your partner. Depending on placement, a vibrating cockring can stimulate your partner’s anus, perineum, or scrotum. It can also give you a little added pleasure as it vibrates away on top of your shaft.

 

Finally, you can use a cock ring just to change things up in your routine. It’s one of those toys thats small enough to not scare anyone off, but big enough to pack a punch.

So what to get?

 

Well, like I said, you can get them in silicone, metal or leather. The most popular kind of cock ring is the silicone version and you can typically find these with vibrating counterparts. These are meant to serve more as a throwaway toy. You use it a few times and then throw it away. You must be very careful when putting one of these on because the silicone ring can occasionally be kind of thin and break before you have even put it on.  You can find the silicone version in a single or dual cock ring. The dual is is worn over your shaft and your balls.

 

The leather and metal versions are a little more intense, are perfect for anyone who dabbles in BDSM and are meant to serve more as an erection and aesthetic aid vs. a pleasurable one. That’s not to say they can’t be pleasurable though.

 

I suggest starting off with a silicone version if you’re new to the world of cock rings. These models tend to be cheaper and will give you a chance to see if you and your partner really like it.

 

Finally, some quick do’s and don’ts of cock ring wearing:

 

–Do wash your cock ring after every use to avoid bacteria build up. A word of advice. If your mother is still doing your laundry, don’t forget to take your cock ring out of your pants pocket if you’ve been traveling with one.  The silicon ones look a bit like a ponytail scrunchie and that could make for a very awkward conversation on laundry day.

 

–Don’t wear your cock ring for more than 20 to 30 minutes. Trapping the blood keeps fresh oxygen from getting into your blood vessels and can cause your cells to die! No one wants that, so be sure to remove it after a while and NEVER fall asleep wearing one.

 

–Do be careful when removing your cock ring

 

–Do not use one if you are on blood thinning medicine or have cardiovascular issues.

 

Now that you know, do you think you’ll get one?
