Toy chest: Cock ring

I’ve mentioned before that I wear a cock ring when inside the house. I like it enough to give it a post of its own. I am thinking of blogging my way through part of my toy chest, and what better place to start than here.

Cock Ring
Yes, I had permission to take it off to snap this picture 🙂

This is a ring by Gear Essentials, which they call the “Imperial Tribal”. They show it being worn on their blog. At about 6 oz, it is pleasantly weighty, yet not so heavy that it would get uncomfortable.

When choosing a cock ring, fit is everything. Getting the right fit will take some trial and error. Before investing into something like this, you’ll want to have a very good idea of fit already. Experimenting with cheap rings from a hardware store is sensible. Just keep in mind that a thin ring that becomes uncomfortable after hours of wear might just be the right size in a wider ring. A wider ring is heavier, and will slip off more readily than a thin, light ring.

Under no circumstance should your cock turn blue, or heavens forbid get cold to the touch. If that happens you’re restricting blood flow too much and the ring has to come off before you do damage. So, when testing, err on bigger sizes initially, and gradually test something smaller. Anything that is the diameter of your erect cock or even smaller will be too small, you don’t have to go that far down.

For myself, a ring about 5mm (1/8″) bigger in diameter than the base of my cock is right, which makes this a 2 1/8″ ring. I don’t know that that’s a universal formula, but it’s probably not a bad starting point. Cock rings typically come in 5mm (1/8″) size increments, and don’t cater to people with very thick or very thin cocks. If you fall well outside the norm either way, and you want a cock ring, you might need to spring for something custom-made.

When shopping for a ring for long-term wear, there are a few things beyond size that you want to look out for so that it will not cause irritation and redness, or even sores. Look for it to be wide. This ring is 0.6″, anything around 1/2″ is good. Look for a rounded inner surface, to avoid irritation there. And lastly, look for flat “edges” as you see in this picture. I’ve worn a ring that came to more of an edge where the inner and outer surfaces meet, and it would dig into my mons pubis and not be comfortable for longer than 24 hours.

I originally wore a 60mm ring (wide, rounded, but with those damnable edges) after testing size, but as I got used to wearing it and my scrotum became a bit more loose, that turned out to be too big. It would slip off and fall down my trouser leg. Not a great thing.

 

I can and have worn this ring for days on end without any discomfort. I take it off when I leave the house, and put it back on when I come back. The rules regarding it have evolved. It used to be that I wore it over-night, then took it off when leaving the house, and Bear would hand it back to me to wear at night. Now, I wear it “on the grounds”, that is in the house and in the garden, and am expected to keep track of putting it on and taking it off myself.

This simple ring has to be my favorite toy, hands-down. It increases the intensity of my erections, it reminds me by its presence of my genitals and of my promise to Bear, and wearing it makes me much hornier than I would be without it. And it looks great to boot.
