5 Astonishing Reasons Men Want These Cock Rings

Cock rings are the white knights of the sex toy world, improving sex lives wherever they go. In this post we explore why men love them, women want them and why everyone should have one!

You may have seen them on the shelves during your last jaunt into a sex shop, or you scrolled past them in wonder as you searched online for something new to try out with your lover. Those strange, round ring looking ‘toys’ that appear to be nothing more than a piece of rubber or silicone.

Then as you investigated them a little more, you noticed they come in a variety of thicknesses, materials, colours, sizes and brands. Some vibrate. Some have little charms on them like cats collars do. As the confusion spread, you could not help but ponder the deep mysteries of this sex toy.

The fact is that penis rings are peculiarly simple toys, made for a host of not-so-simple reasons. As you scratch beneath the surface of entry-level bedroom play, a new arena opens up to you – one that is ruled by this innocuous, underestimated penis enhancement toy known as the cock ring.

In this post we take a look at the 5 most prevalent reasons why men want luxury cock rings.

The History of The Cock Ring: Blazing Unexpected Paths

Cock rings have been defined by history as any ring that is placed around the base of your penis, in order to slow blood flow to and from your erection so that it lasts for a much longer time.

These particular sex toys are among the oldest, appearing for the first time in historical records from ancient Greece and 13th century China. According to The Lady Miss from Persephone Magazine, these sex toys were considered to be status symbols, not dissimilar from the sports cars of today.

Very early models were made from goat eyelids, hair and all, jade, ivory and less creepy animal skin – which was all the rage back in ancient times. The primary uses for these ancient cock rings have not changed much since then – they are still primarily used for enhancement and sexual pleasure.

Then, the Victorian age shone its conservative light on the toy, transforming it into a device that discouraged erection. The once proud and revered cock ring was studded and spiked, and used to keep boys from enjoying any kind of sexual arousal.

Of course this probably didn’t stop people from figuring out its enhancement properties. Fast forward to the modern age of enlightenment, and a huge range of cock rings now exists that caters to all tastes in every fetish there is. This toy is a staple in sexually explorative households!

  • Unlike many other kinds of toy, the penis ring compliments most other forms of play
  • It can be used on its own or as part of a more elaborate solo or couple’s session
  • The toy can be used during foreplay, during sex, or both

It’s clear why men have nurtured a love affair with these rings now for thousands of years. But to properly understand the toy in a modern context, here are the main reasons why they are still such a big hit among young and older men alike.

The Number 1 Reason Men Love This Junk Jewellery

Sex toys for men are usually quite explicit, which makes them hard for many men to accept. When your average monogamous guy wants to break into something new, they are usually faced with a multitude of salacious options that can be quite unappealing.

For this key reason, new cock rings are the best beginner’s sex toy for men in the world. They are aesthetically non-threatening, and help conservative individuals realize the potential that sex toys offer in their lives. Not only are they easy to use, but they bring couples closer together.

As one of the few sexual enhancement toys for guys on the market that always delivers on its promises, without any of the marketing hype involved – simple rings like these make incredible couple’s gifts or bachelor and bachelorette party gifts for friends and family.

2 Medical Reasons Why a Penis Ring Is Your Best Friend

According to John Millward’s million sex toy study,the cock ring is credited with 6% of all sex toys sales today. That makes it the 5th most popular toy, outselling favourites like the dildo!

We can theorise that the rise in people buying cock rings is directly related to the simultaneous rise of two modern medical concerns – premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.

  • In a study published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine, 1 in 4 men who sought treatment for erectile dysfunction were under the age of 40.
  • According to Cathy Garrard of Mensfitness.com, every month there are more than 450,000 Google searches for premature ejaculation. The Journal of Sexual Medicine reports that in the US alone, 1 in every 3 men are dealing with these problems.

Building a collection of cock rings may be all you need to do to solve either of these modern sexual health problems. Here’s why:

#1: How a Cock Ring Helps Erectile Dysfunction

When a man can’t get – or sustain – an erection for long enough to enjoy sex with their partner, dysfunction results. The penis is made up of spongy tissue that is surrounded by a thick sheath or membrane. To get aroused, blood flows into this tissue creating an erection.

Modern cock rings have the ability to provide direct stimulation to the penis until it is aroused, while holding the blood – and the erection – firmly in place!

    • The 4US Cock Ring by Rocks Off is a vibrating ring that increases arousal, prolongs your erection and makes your orgasm much more intense.

#2: How a Cock Ring Helps Premature Ejaculation

When a man struggles to control ejaculation so that he and his lover are both sexually satisfied, this is considered a sexual dysfunction. Adjustable cock rings solve this problem by restricting blood flow to the penis – thereby making it tougher for the man to ejaculate. Sex lasts longer!

      • The Joy Division VarioRing is an adjustable ring that will fit on any size penis and can be adjusted to allow complete control of your erection and state of arousal.

2 Relationship Reasons Why Penis Rings Are Fun

We live in an age of sexual abundance – visual stimuli are everywhere and at the click of a button you can get any sex toy that you want.

At the same time, digital technology and our ‘always-on’ culture have left people feeling disconnected and emotionally distant – love and sex have drifted apart.

Sexual connection and satisfaction are harder to achieve than ever before, thanks to our busy lives. Luckily, fun cock rings can bridge the gap and keep sexual interest and intrigue alive.
