One of the things we get asked a lot about in the store is: “how do you know what size cock ring to buy?” Truth is, if you’ve never bought one before, you just don’t know. And being in the store is not an appropriate place to take measurements. But, I’ve got some practical advice to help you make a choice without measurements. And then, I will explain how you can take measurements before you go to the store.
Let’s get the most basic question out-of-the-way first: “why wear a cock ring?” Some people like the way it feels. Some people like the way it looks. Other people find that it intensifies their orgasm. But, probably the vast majority of people use cock rings and cock straps because it makes your erection larger and harder by restricting the blood flow. Since the blood flow entering the penis comes from the arteries inside the shaft and the blood flow leaving the penis goes through the veins on the outside, wearing a cock ring can stop or slow down the flow going out. And as long as you choose the right size, it’s all worry free. No pill to take, no side effects, no problem. But you’ve got to choose the right size. If it’s too tight and you can’t get it off, you can cause some serious damage to your penis and your ability to get and maintain an erection. So how do you know it’s the right size?
When people come into the store with no prior experience with cock rings, they generally come in thinking they are looking for a metal ring. That’s a no-no. If you don’t already know your size, the last thing you want to do is buy something metal. If it won’t come off, you’ll have to take a trip to the emergency room so they can cut it off. Not fun. You’re best bet is to go with either a leather strap, an adjustable cock ring, or a gummie cock ring. You may also be able to go with a rubber cock ring or a neoprene cock ring, because they are pliable and can be cut off on your own in the worst case scenario. If your intent is to eventually buy a metal ring, then you should go with either the leather strap or adjustable cock ring. This will make it easier to measure the size you will want at a later time. Let’s look at some examples of cock rings and cock straps:
Now, if you’re at home and want to know your size, here’s what you do: measure around the penis and the scrotum, then divide by Pi (3.14). This will give you a close estimate that should be within 1/8″ to 1/4″. But I must stress that you need to measure at the base of your penis and underneath your scrotum to get the correct measurement. Keep in mind that everyone is different when it comes to pain tolerance. This is especially true in the cock and ball area. What you might think of as snug, another person may think is too loose. So, even with this measurement, I would still recommend going with a rubber or neoprene cock ring before purchasing the metal ones. Find something other than metal to wear in order to determine your perfect size.
Let’s discuss putting on a cock ring before moving on to other styles of C&B toys and ball stretchers. In order to put your cock ring on with the least amount of struggle or pain, first pull the scrotum through, then put each testicle through, and then bend your penis to fit through. Sounds simple, but it will take practice. Then, to remove, you just follow in reverse, penis, then testicles, and then scrotum. I can not stress enough that if your penis is erect, you should not force it to bend. If it hurts, that means stop. You should be in a semi-relaxed state to put the cock ring on. This can be difficult for some people as it can be arousing to put a cock ring on. But, just relax and try again until you’re able to do it without being fully erect. Now let’s look at some C&B toys and then talk about ball stretchers.
A ball stretcher is, as you may have guessed, something worn to stretch out the scrotum. Obviously, this isn’t for everyone, but those that are into ball stretchers do enjoy the sensation. So, ball stretchers are not only used to lengthen the amount your scrotum hangs, but also for pleasure and some B&D play. Ball stretchers can come in all sorts of styles and materials. We even carry some that are weighted.
Choosing a ball stretcher will vary from person to person and is dependant on the amount of skin that their scrotum has. But, leather ball stretchers can be found starting from 1″ and extend to 3″ or even 4″. The Oxball brand is becoming very popular and is great because the material is much more stretchy. Oxball also comes in various styles and sizes. If a ball stretcher is worn regularly, permanent growth can be achieved. This is usually the desired effect and lots of men opt to gradually increase the size of the toy they are using.
