Around 1200 AD came the invention of the cock ring. The first documented rings were made in China from the eyelids of goats with eyelashes intact. The flexible eyelid was tied around a man’s erection and the hardened lashes increased the pleasures of intercourse. By 1600, cock rings were made of ivory that was often elaborately carved to depict dragons. Some rings even sported a nub on the dragon’s tongue that could be used on the woman’s clitoris.
Then and now, a cock ring is often used to make an erect penis harder and bigger and to keep it that way for a longer amount of time as a way to delay and heighten orgasm. Cock rings work by constricting blood flow and keeping blood in the shaft of the penis. When the wearer finally ejaculates the sensation is more intense since it took a longer time to cum and because the penis is filled with additional blood.
When we first started cock rings in our bedroom there was a great debate. My husband insisted he was too young, that he didn’t need help with his erections, but I persisted that it was for my enjoyment rather than his because he was always so quick to cum. Though we never went to the extreme of finding cock rings made out of a goat’s eyelid our first one was The Cock Ring and Egg by Pipedream. It’s made out of a pink silicone that has a max stretch diameter of 3”. The best thing about it is that it’s not just a cock ring but a couple’s ring, including a vibrating bullet for my enjoyment as well. I can’t cum from straight sex, I definitely need some clitoral stimulation and this ring helped bring me to the big O every time.
We have an insane variety of cock rings now. My husband has some he uses just on his scrotum, some he uses just on his cock, and others he uses on both like the Tie Your Own Cock Ring by Doc Johnson. It stretches to almost 12 feet so no doubt it will fit any sized penis, but it also has a great glow in the dark novelty factor too. It’s made out of incredibly soft UR3 which is a favorite of ours, but unfortunately it can’t be used with silicone-based lubricants because they can melt the material. Yikes!
We’ve tried so many types in our bedroom and just recently my husband has made the switch to the Fury Brushed cock ring by Gear Essentials. It’s a gorgeous hypo-allergenic stainless steel ring that weighs about a pound. I like it so much better than the other rubber, leather, and jelly rings we have. So far it’s been the best at prolonging his erection and frankly, it looks the sexiest. While it doesn’t have a bullet included for me it’s still my favorite. Browsing around on EF there are even newer cock rings than the Fury that have spectacular engravings reflecting their rich roots.
There are so many types of rings to fit every taste. Some that include wireless bullets, others that include battery packs on foot long cords, some that include nubs, some that include double rings for both your cock and balls, some that you can tie, some that are loops, some with anal stimulation, and some that even have neck straps. Whether it’s for his pleasure or her’s they enhance the sexual experience and add a new element that’s sure to win over any raging hard on lover!
