We have had a lot of people asking us how to measure for a cockrings so we've written up the following helpfull hints:

Metal cock rings are made for intensity and powerful erections. They provide a tight grip that will enhance your performance and make for an unforgettable experience. The best of all? Your partner will enjoy it, too!

One of the most important things to keep in mind when using solid cock rings is that they are not flexible. This is one of the main reasons why they are so powerful and effective.

However, it also means that you need to know the exact size you need to order, or else it wouldn’t fit. In practice, it means knowing the girth of your erect penis (its exact diameter).

In order to enjoy your metal cock rings to the fullest, it is important to know your size. If you are unsure about the right size it’s best to measure yourself to find out which size fits you best. Do not order your cock rings without knowing your size. This is an imperative because it’s vital to ensure a good fit.

Measuring for a Cock Ring

One of the main things to keep in mind when choosing the right size for your cock ring is that it should be tight enough to provide a good grip for enhancing your erection, but also loose enough not to cause discomfort.

The first thing you need to know is that the cock ring sizes represent diameters. Typically, cock ring sizes are given in millimeters, so you should ideally know your penis diameter in millimeters (or convert it from inches to millimeters). In order to know which size to order, you need to know the diameter of your penis. However, keep in mind that you need to order a cock ring with a diameter that is a bit smaller than your penis, since you want your cock ring to provide a tight grip. Never order a cock ring that is too small, though – the grip will be too tight and thus uncomfortable (and potentially dangerous).

To measure yourself, you need to be erect. Your flaccid size is smaller than your erect size so it’s not the appropriate one for ordering a cock ring. This is why it’s important to be fully erect when measuring.

When erect, take a measuring tape and wrap it around the base of your penis. The tape should sit around the bottom of your shaft, right where your penis meets the body. Record this measurement. For the best accuracy, it’s advisable to record several measurements and take the average. If any measurement is off (too large or too small compared to the rest), make sure to disregard it.

The number you get with measurements is the circumference of your penis. Since cock ring sizes represent diameter, you will need to divide your circumference by 3.14. This will give you the diameter of your penis.

As mentioned above, many cock ring sizes are given in millimeters (mm) and not inches. If you take your measurements in inches, you will get a diameter in inches. To get your diameter in millimeters, multiply your result by 25.4. This will give you your diameter in millimeters.

How to Measure for a Cock RingTypically, it is best to order a cock ring of the nearest smaller size than your diameter. Never order a ring that has the exactly the same diameter as your penis. Similarly, you shouldn’t order rings with larger diameters. However, if your penis diameter is only a bit bigger than the first smaller cock ring diameter, the ring still might not be tight enough. Generally speaking, allow at least 5 to 6 mm (around a quarter of an inch) of difference. Your penis should be at least that bigger than the cock ring. However, this will depend on several factors (including your preference). Some men prefer cock rings that are 1 cm (around a half of an inch) smaller than the penis diameter.

That being said, you shouldn’t go much tighter than that. Penis rings that are smaller than that will probably be too tight. Chances are that you don’t want to get a cock ring that is more than 1cm smaller than your diameter.

If you wish to wear a cock and ball ring, you will need to take another measurement. This time, wrap the measuring tape behind your balls and all the way up around your penis. The goal is to fit both your testicles and penis inside the measuring tape. You need to be erect to do this, or else the measurement will be off. When taking this measurement, try to keep the measuring tape close to the body. Take several measurements to get your circumference. Again, you will need to divide his number by 3.14 to get your diameter. Just like with cock rings, it is best to order a cock and ball ring with a diameter a bit smaller than your own.

Similarly, to get a good glans ring size, you will need to wrap the measuring tape just under the penis head. Make sure you are erect. Take several measurements to ensure accuracy. This will give you the circumference. Divide it by 3.14 to get your glans diameter. You will need to order a glans ring with a diameter a bit smaller than your own.

Wearing a Metal Cock Ring

Metal cock rings are surprisingly easy to wear, but you need to be careful when putting them on or taking them off. Keep in mind, however, that comfort doesn’t mean you can leave your cock ring on for too long. These sex toys are not suitable for a long-term wear. They are made to constrict the blood flow and make the erection more powerful, so it’s important to take them off after 20 to 30 minutes. It is also important to remove your cock ring immediately if you experience some sudden pain and major discomfort at any point.

With these warnings in mind, wearing a metal cock ring is actually pretty easy. If you have measured yourself it becomes problem-free to ensure a good fit.

It is best to put a cock ring on while penis is flaccid. It is very difficult to put on a solid cock ring while erect, so it should be done before erection. Since the penis is smaller when flaccid, you should not have any problems sliding the cock ring over your penis. Simply slide it over your glans and shaft, all the way to the base of your penis.

It may be difficult to judge whether the ring sits comfortably or not before you are erect. However, once you begin to get an erection it is easy to re-adjust the positioning of your cock ring or to push it a bit further down or up on the penis. If you have a trouble doing that, make sure to apply a bit of lube on the penis and around the edge of the cock ring.

Keep in mind that a metal cock ring should provide a tight grip – this is the only way to achieve those rock-hard erections you’ve been dreaming of. However, the grip should never be too tight to completely constrict the blood flow and cause pain. You should not feel discomfort while wearing your metal cock ring. The feeling may seem a bit “too much” in the beginning, especially if you’re used to softer, flexible rings, but it should not be painful or really uncomfortable.

In fact, pain, significant discomfort and other problems (discoloration, redness, and excessive tenderness) are a sign that you need a cock ring of a larger size. If this is the case, you need to measure yourself again to ensure a good fit.

How to Measure for a Cock Ring

If you wish to wear a cock and ball ring, it’s important to put the ring around your testicles first. In order not to hurt yourself, make sure to go one testicle at a time. Be gentle – testicles are very sensitive and you should not hurt them. The ball ring, when properly placed, should sit around the scrotum. After the testicles are inside of the ring, carefully place the ring around your penis. It is important to do this while flaccid or else it won’t work.

Depending on the design of the ring, it may be a single ring for both testicles and penis or different rings for penis and testicles (one for the penis and the other one for your balls). In any case, keep in mind to put the one around your testicles first. These double rings work wonders for your erection and provide a very good stimulation during use.

You may also wish to use a very sensual triple cock ring. This one has a large ring that goes around both penis and testicles, the medium one that goes around the balls and the smallest one that goes around the penis. It is best to put the largest one first. It’s easier to start with your balls and then place your penis inside (you need to be absolutely flaccid to do that). After this, place the middle ring around your testicles and the smallest one around your penis. Some people prefer to do it in a different order, which is fine – practice for a bit to find out which one works the best for you.

You may also wish to wear your triple cock ring in a different way: the largest ring around your penis and testicles, with the two smaller rings around your balls (one testicle inside each of the rings). This is an alternative way of wearing a triple cock ring.

A cock spine (also known as penile backbone) is a sex toy consisting of a rod that goes along the shaft. The toy typically includes several cock rings in a row. The rings are typically of a graduating size. The largest, bottom one is worn around the base of your penis while the other ones go around your shaft. The top one typically goes around your penis head. The rings are connected together, typically with a leather strap. This adult toy can easily be worn if you put your penis through the rings carefully, one at a time. It’s best to be done while the penis is flaccid. Make sure that the rings are properly positioned (the bottom one around the base of the penis and the top one around your glans). This is a powerful and intense sex toy so it’s best to be used by more experienced users.

Additional Tips

How to Measure for a Cock RingIn order to make the ring slide smoothly, make sure to use a bit of lube. Lube is your best friend: it will help you ensure comfort and easiness of use. You might not even need to go overboard with lubrication: simply apply a bit of lube to the inside of the cock ring. Many times, this is enough. If it’s still difficult to put on, add a bit more, and make sure to also add some lube on your penis. This should make it easier to put the cock ring on. It will also help you to position the cock ring correctly and without discomfort.

Lube is your best friend when it comes to removing cock rings, too. This is particularly important if you need to remove the ring quickly because of an emergency. For this reason, make sure to always have the lube ready and near you.

If it’s difficult to put a cock ring on, try to do it in the shower. The skin will be warmer and more relaxed. This can be particularly helpful if you wish to wear multiple (double and triple) cock rings, or a penis spine.

While cock rings can be worn on the other points (higher on the shaft or even around the glans), keep in mind that the size you measure is the one around the base of the penis. In other words, said size might not be a good fit if you wish to wear the ring higher on the shaft or around the glans. Keep in mind, however, that there are special glans rings made to be worn around the glans, so you may order one of these if you want to wear your ring around the glans. If you wish to do so, don’t forget to measure around the penis head to ensure a good fit.

It is always best to try a new cock ring for a bit before you intend to use it for sexual activities. It will allow you to get used to the feeling and to learn the best placement that fits you perfectly. Therefore, it’s recommended to test it a bit when you are alone and to use it with a partner later.

Make sure to always remove your metal cock ring after 30 minutes (maximum). Ideally, you should not wear it more than 20 minutes at a time. Always allow your penis to rest before you put on a cock ring again.

Learn all the warning signs that tell you there’s something wrong. The most common problem is that the ring is too tight. Warning signs include: major discomfort, pain, pronounced veins, tenderness, loss of sensation, narrowing of the shaft near the cock ring, change of color (especially if the surface of the penis becomes blue at places) or any other thing that may seem “off”. If you experience any of these sensations, remove your cock ring immediately. If the erection persists so it’s difficult to remove the ring, try using lube or ice to make the ring easier to remove. These warning signs should not be ignored! If the problem persists even hours after the removal of the cock ring, it is recommended to consult your doctor.

If you have any underlying medical condition, such as diabetes, you should not wear cock rings. If in doubt, consult your doctor. It is advisable to consult your doctor before deciding to try any new sex toy. Make sure that it is safe for you to use such a toy. This is recommended for everyone, particularly people who have a specific medical condition.
