While you and your partner might have dabbled in cock rings to help solve an erection issue or just for fun, do the things actually have any effect on the strength of your orgasms? We spoke to a few experts and here’s what they said:

So, can cock rings lead to stronger orgasms?

For men, if they’re wearing them, definitely.

Why? Penis rings constrict blood flow, leading to increased sensitivity for the wearer. Plus, “a cock ring can delay ejaculation, and this buildup can cause a more intense orgasm for him while also giving his partner more time to reach climax,” explains Antonia Hall, psychologist, sex expert, and author of The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Orgasmic Life.

Not to mention, as orgasm and ejaculation approach, the testicles naturally want to move upward, says sexologist Megan Stubbs. The penis ring can provide resistance and windup, creating a more powerful-feeling orgasm.

Okay, what about for women?

If you’re using a vibrating cock ring, sure! What better way for hands-free orgasm during penetrative sex, right? Stubbs recommends looking for a product with a large surface area for max contact with the vulva and clitoris that’s still comfy for the penis owner to wear.

Excited for my sex life to get way better. Now, how exactly do I use one?

Well, first thing, make sure you’re buying the right material. Penis rings come in all kinds of materials ranging from stretchy silicone to metal and glass. Beginners should start with stretchy cock rings, and only advanced users should go for the solid materials like metal, says Hall.

Next up, fit. While a cock ring can be fitted so it’s just around the base of the penis, it can also be worn over the penis and testicles for an even more intense sensation. Hall recommends putting the ring on while the penis is flaccid or semi-erect and adding some water-based lube to help.

If you’re going the over-the-testicle route, Hall recommends placing one testicle through the ring and then the other, before inserting the penis through the ring. It should feel snug, but never uncomfortable.

The wearer should work up to keeping it on during sex, so start with five-minute sessions first. But never leave a cock ring on for longer than 20 minutes. Going too long without fresh blood flow into the penis can actually be harmful, says Stubbs.
