Not all toys are created equal: a guide to choosing cock rings

If you’re looking for something to use with your partner, a cock ring can be a fantastic choice. It’s a classic couple’s sex toy that will give both of you sensations to enhance your pleasure.

The right kind will lightly squeeze him at the base of his cock (and balls, depending on how you choose to use it), and the right addition can provide extra stimulation for you.

There are a number of different types of cock ring, and this guide should give you an overview so you can help choose the one that suits you both best.

Simple cock rings

The most basic cock rings consist of a circle of stretchy material which sits either at the base of the penis, or around the penis and balls. The ring squeezes gently, giving a harder erection and often more intense orgasms for him.

The Screaming O pack comes with rings in three sizes, which means you can pick and choose depending on how tight your partner wants the ring to be.

Vibrating cock rings

Most of the cock rings you’ll find here on Belle de Soir vibrate ・ and there’s a good reason for that! When worn at the base of the cock, a vibrating ring such as the Ovo Puriel will stimulate your clitoris with each thrust. Many people choose to use cock rings for more grinding sex – staying close to each other to maximise the clitoral stimulation from the vibe. These cock rings usually come with simple buttons on the toy itself so you can turn on the powerful vibrations easily.

If you’re looking for something a bit more flexible, you can get remote control cock rings like the Lelo Oden 2. This means you don’t have to use controls on the toy itself – the control unit can sit on your bedside table, or in your hand, so you can adjust the vibrations quickly and easily.

Does cock ring shape matter?

Absolutely! After all, everyone’s slightly different and we all respond differently to stimulation. If you want clitoral stimulation as well as the squeeze of the ring itself, one of the key things to look at is the shape of the vibrating section.

Most cock rings come with horizontal bullet vibes either attached, which are removable if you want to use them separately (like the Hero remote control cock ring) or built in, like the Lelo Tor. However you might prefer something that sits vertically on your clitoris like the Rocks Off range.

You can also choose between textured and un-textured, depending on what sensation you prefer on your clitoris.

Does cock ring size matter?

Not with most – cock rings made from silicon are usually very flexible. They stretch around the cock and squeeze to grip it, making them easy to put on and remove. This also means that they should fit most men simply – although as mentioned above if he’s after a stronger squeeze you might want to try one of the cock ring sets to test out different sensations.
