How To Use A C-Ring, With Or Without A Penis

How To Use A C-Ring, With Or Without A Penis

One of the most underrated sex toys by far is the C-Ring. Most people have no clue how to wear them, are unaware of the unique sexual thrills they provide, and don’t realize that you don’t have to have a penis to use them. Would you like to hear more?

Here’s a simple breakdown of how to best wear and experience the practical and pleasure-inducing cock ring!

  • How To Wear A C-Ring

The most common design for a C-Ring is either one single circular band such as Tantus’ Advanced C-Ring or a double banded C-Ring with a mini vibrator on top. If the ring has double bands, slip the ring around the penis shaft first and then put the second ring around the testicles.

If the ring is a singular circle, the entire device is slipped onto the shaft of a semi-flaccid penis with the testicles placed inside the ring as well. (One at a time… and don’t forget the lube!)

  • Countless C-Ring Concoctions

Now that you know how to secure a cock ring correctly, you need to figure out what style you’d like to experiment with.

Some manufacturers make C-Rings in a set that increase pressure as the user progresses in band size. They come in different shapes and functions. The Spartacus Cock Ring Set is a perfect and affordable example. 

 

Or if you want to share the good vibes with a partner during penetrative sex, try the Pivot Cock Ring by We-Vibe. It has a built-in rechargeable vibrator for hands-free clitoral stimulation for partners with vulvas. It even has mobile app connection capabilities!

 

There are also lower cost C-Rings like the B-Charmed Classic by B Swish that have a vibrating bullet that is easily be removed to function as separate vibrator for stimulation to other body areas.

If you’re not a C-Ring novice or if you’re feeling adventurous, there are other cock rings designed to simultaneously stimulate the anus or nipples (via nipple clamps).

 

  • How To Use A C-Ring, Without A Penis

There are many reasons for people with penises to wear a C-ring, the biggest being that it causes the penis to stay harder and longer for stronger erections by restricting the blood flow.  But people with vulvas should consider a vibrating C-ring as a worthwhile sex toy investment for solo play, too!

In the same way that the ring would be applied to a penis, slip a cock ring around a favorite dildo to turn an ordinary insertion toy into a vibrator. Try the Je Joue Mio; it’s considered a beginner’s favorite especially for its softness.

A conventional vibrator for internal stimulation has the added benefit of additional clitoral stimulation when accompanied by a cock ring.

Body-safe, silicone C-Rings are usually quite stretchy, so it’s likely one ring can fit over a large variety of sex toys you already own.

Just be sure to use water-based lube with your silicone toys to make them last longer as silicone on silicone can break the materials down over time. 

Mix up the sensations in your body by removing the mini bullet vibrator for pinpointed stimulation on other erogenous zones or sensitive areas, too! 

  • Even More Reasons To Try A C-Ring

Most of the C-Rings with simple designs are under $10 (i.e., Tantus’ Super Soft C-Ring), so they’re great for the budget as well.

So there it is folks, so many reasons to root for the sex toy underdog – the multipurpose cock ring!
