Sex Toys Guide: Sex with a Penis Ring

By: J Dugan


They used to be something that no man (and few women) admitted to using, but nowadays more and more guys are using and discussing sex toys. And while there are quite a few male sex toys to choose from, lots of guys tend to start with a tried-and-true basic: the penis ring. Since men should always have proper penis care in mind when experimenting, now is a good time to provide some helpful tips for penis ring use. Though essentially safe, as with anything new involving sex, it’s good to have a little background information handy.

Historical

Penis rings have been around in one form or another for thousands of years. Ancestral versions of the device have been found in ancient Greek ruins, and their use has been well documented as far back as the Jin Dynasty.

The idea behind the penis ring is simplicity itself: Place a tight (but not TOO tight) ring around an erect (or partially erect) penis, so that it helps to constrict the flow of blood out of the penis. Damming the blood up in the erect penis helps maintain the erection and can also in some instances makes the erect penis feel "super-hard."

There are a few options on where to place the ring. The most typical is placing it directly at the base of the shaft. However, it is also popular to insert both the penis and the balls into the ring. Another alternative is to slip the ring on just underneath the glans.

Tips

- Penis rings can be made in a wide range of material. Stretchy rings made out of rubber or silicon are very popular, but some men prefer them made of metal or leather instead. Since there’s no "give" with metal, it may be better to start with plastic/silicon or leather, especially when finding one that "fits" right.

- Some men find that using a penis ring is easier if they manscape. Otherwise, pubic hair may sometimes get caught in the ring, causing some discomfort.

- Don’t be afraid to use lubricant when putting on the penis ring. Even though the chosen ring may be made of a stretchy material, it still may require some extra "slickness" to get it into place easily.

- Penis rings can be great fun and for some men can be a significant sex aid. However, as with most sex toys, there is some potential risk. Wearing a penis ring for too long - and thereby forcing the penis to remain rigid - can bring about tissue damage. Most sex toy producers recommend using a penis ring only for about 20 minutes at a time. But if the penis feels numb or becomes discolored, the ring should be removed even if it has only been on for a short time.

- Some penis rings come with a vibrating function. These often also have "nubs" or "bumps" on them. The vibration can be pleasurable for both the man wearing the ring and for his partner. The nubs can provide extra stimulation during penetration. In addition, there are some vibrating rings in which the vibration rate can be altered, and some in which a remote control can allow a partner to provide vibratory control of the ring.

- Like all sex toys, penis rings should be cleaned and dried after each use.

Using sex toys such as a penis ring can enhance a man’s fun, as can keeping his penis healthy. That health can be more easily maintained by the regular use of an excellent penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . The best crème will include a range of vitamins, such as A, B5, C, D and E, the topical application of which allows them to more directly target the penis. The crème should also include alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that helps keep the penis skin strong and healthy.
