How to measure for a cock ring

Cock rings are a great addition to your sex toy collection. They help men maintain an erection that is harder and longer lasting. This is achieved by restricting the blood flow to the penis and is more likely to lead to longer levels of enjoyment and orgasm.

There are two types of cock rings.   A plain cock ring that is worn on the shaft of the penis and a cock and ball ring which is worn around both the penis and the testicles. Here we will look at how to measure for both types of rings.

Cock rings are sized by diameter, the measurement across the centre of the hole. Although most cock rings can stretch and be adjusted, it’s important to get a good fit, so, before buying one you need to measure the penis to ensure it fits.

What you need to measure for a cock ring:

To measure for either cock ring you will need the following:

  • Soft measuring tape or Piece of string
  • Ruler

How to measure for a cock ring:

1. Always measure the circumference of a penis when it is erect.
2. Wrap the measuring tape (or string) around the very bottom of the penis.
3. The number on the tape will give you the circumference of the penis.
4. If you are using string, pinch it at the point it meets and measure it using a ruler.
5. This gives you the circumference of the penis.
6. Measure it again – it’s good to double check!
7. To translate the circumference of the penis to the diameter you need to divide it by 3.14. (For example, if the circumference of the penis is 5      inches, you will be looking to buy a cock ring with a diameter smaller than 1.59 inches.)

Measuring for a cock and ball ring:

1. Always measure the circumference of a penis when it is erect.
2. Hold both the penis and testicles as close to the body as possible. This is the area you want to measure.
3. Wrap the measuring tape (or string) around the penis and testicles to get the circumference.
4. If using a piece of string, pinch the string where it met and measure with a ruler. This number is the circumference.
5. Measure it again – it’s good to double check!
6. To translate the circumference into the diameter you need to divide it by 3.14. (For example, if the circumference is 6 inches, you will be            looking to buy a cock ring with a diameter smaller than 1.91 inches.)

Now you are ready to go shopping!

Tips when choosing a cock ring:

• To get the most out of the cock ring, you want to ensure its diameter is smaller than the penis’ measurement. This will ensure the ring               restricts the blood flow to get the desired effect.

• When first starting out with a cock ring, buy one that is just a little bit smaller, because the smaller you go, the tighter it will be! Once          comfortable using one, you can then go that little bit smaller.

• Many cock rings have some degree of stretch in them, so, when choosing a cock ring, examine the specifics and look at the minimum and       maximum measurements. If the penis measurement falls in between then the cock ring will fit.

• Cock rings made from metal are rigid and are not stretchy or adjustable.

• If you are just starting out using cock rings, we would not recommend choosing a metal one as they are a lot more restricting and can not be taken off in a hurry. They also provide a very intense sensation.

• If you are experienced with cock rings and wish to purchase a metal one, you will need to choose one that is between 0.25 and 0.5 inches smaller than the penis measurement so that it is not too constricting.

Good to know:

• When wearing a cock ring, the penis may have a slightly enlarged look, a red blush or pronouncing veins – this is due to the blood being restricted and is to be expected.

• If a cock ring is too tight you may notice the penis being a very red or blueish colour or a narrowing of the penis where the cock ring sits. These are signs that the ring is too tight and it should therefore be removed and a larger one should be purchased.

• General advice is to wear a cock ring for half an hour and then remove it to let the blood flow return to normal.
