What is a Cock Ring?

What is a cock ring

Before working at Condomania, I had no idea what a cock ring was. That may sound like a crazy confession but I believe, based on calls, many people still don’t understand what a cock ring is. So here I am going to try to explain to you what a cock ring is and how it’s used.

A cock ring or C ring is a round piece of either silicone or other type of plastic, usually slightly stretchy or very stretchy material that can be used to maintain an erection longer. In order to explain this, we have to go a little bit further back. When a male gets excited and the penis gets hard, that hardness is created by blood that rushes into the penis. And the way to keep the penis harder is to stop that blood from leaving. What happens is a ring that is placed around the base of the shaft of the penis and also sometimes, around the shaft as well as the scrotum or ball sack is held to keep the blood inside. So even after someone’s body might be done and essentially the blood could leave the penis. The ring is tight enough to keep the blood in the penis allowing you to last longer for your partner.

There are a few different types of rings. One type would be one that would just stay around the shaft. Another type would be one that goes around the shaft as well as the scrotum. There are also more exotic rings that could be anywhere from 2 - 5 or even 6 rings that are held at different parts of the shaft sometimes with a strip of material that fits between each rings, holding each ring at specified distances from each other.

The cock ring is also used by people who have physical handicap as well as very popular in the gay community. But similar to many things the gay community, this has been becoming something popular to all people of different sexual orientations because it can be used to last longer and maintain an erection for a longer period of time.

An additional use of a cock ring or c ring is to hold a condom on. We sometimes have customers who are either larger or smaller and are looking to secure a condom at the base of their penis. An excellent product for this is a cock ring.
