The Gentlemen’s Guide to C-Rings

A few months back I was out on the town with one of my wonderful girlfriends, drowning my sorrows in craft cocktails and ciders, when a charming pair of Marines in town for the ball asked if they could buy me a drink. Handsomely dressed in their blues, and rife with a broken heart from my own Marine, how could I say no?

As most of us do when we meet someone new, these men asked me what I do for a living. In my cool, casual fashion, I said that I was a writer. In the time it took me to take another sip of my cider, my friend turned away from her conversation with a couple of women and said “She writes about sex – for men!”

A few hours and three rounds of drinks later, a few other military guys and a handful of women have joined us and the group is divided by those who prefer vanilla sex and those who look for more kinky fuckery. I was fielding their various questions stemming from solving their relationship woes, to the women wanting some tips on better oral sex techniques you won’t find in Cosmopolitan, when one of the single guys shouted out “What about cock rings?”

cock-ringMuch to my surprise, a handful of the people in the group didn’t know what a c-ring was and everyone seemed curious. It felt like the whole bar fell silent as they looked to me for answers.

I couldn’t tell you when my first experience with c-rings, the C stands for constriction, not cock, was. I believe it was somewhere around the second semester of my first year in college. Nonetheless, they are a cheap, handy, easy to use sexcessory for men.

Here’s your handy gentleman’s guide to what you need to know.

What is it?

A constriction ring is a thing ring that is designed to slide down the shaft of the penis and rest at the base. These rings can be made of medal, but most people prefer the rubber or silicone versions which are flexible and offer more give as your erection builds.

As the name states, the purpose of this little guy is to gently constrict the blood flow of your penis. Applying the constricting pressure at the base of the penis helps you stay harder for longer and aids in building a better, stronger orgasm.

Who is it for?

One of the reasons that many men are unfamiliar with the use and true purpose of c-rings is because they rarely think there is a problem with their dick. In all fairness, the c-ring market caters largely to those individuals who struggle to maintain an erection for longer than a few minutes. It is the perfect solution for men who are constantly stressed, have blood flow issues, or suffer with erectile dysfunction which hinders their performance in the bedroom.

On the flip side, it’s also designed for any man who is simply looking for greater pleasure with a partner or alone.

How to Choose One

PenisWithRingFirst of all, c-rings are available nearly any place where adult items are sold. For a while, you could get one neatly packaged up with your favorite His & Hers KY Jelly lubricants at Wal-mart. Don’t worry about having to brave an XXX shop either. You can browse a vast selection of these babies through sexcessory sites or even Seriously, Amazon has everything!

For beginners, start with a basic, no-frills silicone or rubber ring. You’ll want to measure the circumference of your semi-erect penis before you purchase one. Rings come in various sizes. You want it to just fit when you slide it on so that when you are fully erect, it is snug.

For intermediate users, consider upping your game with a c-ring that is designed to pleasure you and your partner. There are dozens of different models including ones that vibrate with a remote control and models with attached vibrating bullets for her pleasure.

For advanced users, jump right into the medal models. You can even find additional accessories such cock cages to use in conjunction with the ring.

The silicone and rubber models are very affordable averaging under $10 each. These are usually good for around a dozen uses before they should be tossed. Be sure to clean them post-coitus with a water-based, antibacterial cleanser designed specifically for sex toys.

For a final note – Be cautious of using one that is too small because it can limit your blood flow too much and actually cause permanent damage. C-rings should not be used for more than 30-minutes.

Until next time,
