penis_ring_for_longer_erection.jpgWhen it comes to adding a new dimension to your sex life, or finding ways to prolong an erection, a search often leads people to “penis rings” or “cock rings.” This brings them to questions of what exactly is a penis ring?

How does a penis ring work?

A penis ring is a small, thin ring made of stretchy material, which is usually leather, rubber, or silicone. It is stretched over and placed at the base of the penis while the penis is flaccid or semi-erect. Then, as you become aroused, the ring retains blood in the penis, holding a firm erection in place.

Penis rings come in a variety of materials and styles. Many are soft, while others are made of steel or plastic. Some are designed to also go over the testicles, and some contain vibrators to provide additional stimulation to men and their partners during sex. They can be used alone or with a penis pump or ED pump.

How does a penis ring work to prolong an erection or delay ejaculation?

The penis ring restricts blood from leaving the penis, which holds the erection in place longer. There are also “double ring” versions that go around the penis and the testicles. These rings hold the testicles away from the body and prevent them from pulling up, which is what happens during ejaculation.

How can a penis ring help with erectile dysfunction?

When used with a penis pump, a penis ring can help achieve and maintain an erection no matter what is going on with men physically, mentally, or emotionally. A penis ring is also a good option for men who have not had success with – or who are advised to not take – prescription medications. 

To help with ED, the penis pump, or vacuum assisted therapy device, is used to gently draw blood into the penis crating an erection. (See how it works.) Then a support ring is slid off the penile tube and placed around the base of the penis, holding the erection in place. The pump, combined with the ring, make it possible to both achieve and sustain an erection without the use of medications, surgeries, or injections. 

How can a penis ring bring excitement to the bedroom?

Used with a penis pump or alone, the penis ring can create a new, stimulating aspect of your sex life. Men can enjoy firmer, longer-lasting erections. They may also be aroused just by the thought of a “toy” to play with. Men may report new sensations in the feel of their erections, intercourse, and orgasms. And the variety of materials, sizes, and features creates opportunities for experimentation and foreplay.

Having questions about penis rings is common and natural, and so is wanting to try these popular devices. A penis ring can help you achieve and sustain firm, satisfying, and prolonged erections, and it can be an effective, non-prescription treatment for erectile dysfunction.
