How do I put on a cockring? 

The cockring is one of the most popular male sex accessories. It consists of a ring that is placed around the genitals to reduce blood flow, creating a beautiful erection. This toy is reputed to be effective, but to feel its effects, it must be used correctly. What is a cock ring? Which model should I choose? How do you put it on? Without further ado, find out the answers to all these questions.   

What is a cockring? 

The cock ring, also known as the penis ring, is an accessory for use during masturbation and sexual intercourse. The ring is placed either at the base of the penis or around the testicles. It works by reducing blood flow to the penis. As a result, the penis is more swollen than usual. The cockring also has the advantage of prolonging the erection and delaying ejaculation. 

Despite the benefits of the ring mentioned above, it is important to note that this sextoy is not recommended for treating erectile dysfunction. Also, the cockring is not effective for everyone. Its effect can vary from one individual to another. If you're embarrassed about using it, it may cause you more pain than pleasure. 

How do I choose a cockring? 

Before we tell you how to put on a cockring, we're going to help you choose penile ring the one best suited to your needs. There is a wide variety of cock rings on the market to suit all tastes. 

First, consider the material. You'll find silicone rings, but also metal and aluminium rings. The latter are more expensive and require experience. If this is your first time using a cockring, opt for the silicone models. They are softer, more flexible and easier to put on. 

Then select your cockring based on the different functions it offers. There are cock rings that vibrate. Other models have spikes that are perfect for stimulating your partner's clitoris during intercourse. Not forgetting connected models that can be activated from a mobile app. 

You can also choose between disposable and reusable penis rings. Disposable rings should be thrown away after a single use, while reusable rings can be worn up to 6 times or more. 

The size of the ring is also an important factor. To achieve the desired effects, you should choose a cockring that is neither too small nor too large. If the sextoy is too tight, it may cause discomfort and pain. On the other hand, if it's too big, it may not be effective. To find the right size cockring, you need to measure the size of your penis. To do this, take a tape measure or similar and measure the diameter of your erect phallus, then divide the figure by 3.14. Normally, this should give you a figure of between 2.8 and 5 cm. 

Finally, we advise you to be careful with your budget. It's better to spend more than 20 euros on a quality cockring than to opt for a cheap product that may be fragile, ineffective and dangerous to your health (with toxic components). 

How do you put on a cock ring? 

Now, gentlemen, let's get down to business! Here are the steps to follow to put your cock ring on properly and enjoy its many benefits. 


Having hair around the penis can make it difficult and uncomfortable to use a penis ring. That's why we encourage you to shave. Be careful, though: a razor is not necessarily the best ally! Ideally, you should use an electric trimmer. For the hair around the testicles, use a pair of scissors. 

Using a lubricant 

Putting on a cock ring is not easy, especially if you're not used to it. To simplify the task, don't hesitate to use a lubricant. A water- or silicone-based lubricant will do the trick perfectly. Put some on your sex and inside the sextoy. Be careful not to overdo it, as you may find it even more difficult to put your ring on. 

Inserting the cockring 

You have two options for fitting your cockring. 

  • Putting the cock ring on your penis 

It all depends on the type of cockring you have. If it's a stretchable penis ring, you can put it on whether your penis is at rest or erect. Stretch the ring with your fingers and pass the member through, then position the cockring upright. This way, it will have a better effect. On the other hand, if it's a ring with a fixed diameter, it's best to do this while the penis is at rest. 

  • Put the cockring behind your testicles 

It is also possible to position the cockring behind the testicles. To do this, enlarge the ring and pass your sex through it, then the bursa, to position the ring as close as possible to the pubis. Be careful to keep the bursa and skin of the penis clear of the ring so that you don't feel any discomfort or pain during the erection. 


You should not use a penis ring for too long. Prolonged use can damage the penis by causing the veins to burst or a prolonged painful erection (priapism). The maximum time allowed for each use is 20 to 30 minutes. Allow 60 minutes between uses.
