Wear a Cock Ring

Cock rings are awesome toys for those who want to experience harder erections. They also look really sexy. But they can do damage if they aren’t used properly, so here at As You Like It, we’ve put together a handy little list on how to safely use a cock ring for the first time.

 

MATERIALS: There are a ton of different materials that cock rings are made of. The most common is Rubber, followed by Nitrile, Elastomer, Neoprene, and Silicone. We recommend these for most first time wearers as they are stretchier than the alternatives. There are also cock rings made of metal and wood. These are not for the first time wearers. They are inflexible and if you get the wrong size and get stuck, you will need to go to the ER to get it off.

 

SIZE: Proper sizing is super important. As a general rule, 1.75”-2” rings work well for pretty much everyone, but if you want to be extra sure, there’s an easy way to measure to find your size.

Get a piece of string that’s at least 6” long. Wrap it around the base of your cock, behind the scrotum. Mark where the end meets the rest of the string. Measure that and divide by 3.14. That is the size of your ideal cock ring. When it doubt, round UP rather than down. There’s nothing worse than an ER trip to get your cock ring off. Trust us.

Alternatively, you could get an adjustable cock ring or a stretchy one. We recommend Nitrile or Rubber rings. If you have a latex allergy, you should probably stay away from rubber though. Either way, adjustable or stretchy cock rings work great for first time wearers.

 

PUTTING IT ON: Once you have your size figured out, the next step is to put it on. You want to start off when you’re soft. So think about baseball and cold showers until we get through this part. Start with one testicle and then the other. Fold your cock, point it downwards through the ring, and push it through. Once it’s on, you’re good to go.

 

Some restrictions (pun intended): Take off a cock ring at the first sign of pain or chill. Don’t leave it on for more than 30mins at a time. And NEVER EVER sleep in a cock ring.

 

TAKING IT OFF: Once you’re done doing the deed (whatever that deed may be), taking off a cock ring is as easy as putting it on—just in reverse.  Lube can be helpful for both putting on and taking off a cock ring.
