Cock Ring Measuring Guide

Right guys, listen up. In this instance size really does matter.

Cock rings are used to help get an erection and to maintain it for longer, they can even aid in confidence boosting and can also a visual treat. A cock ring can make your cock harder by restricting the flow of blood out of your penis and this can make it harder, they can even help you to keep your cock hard for longer than usual.

It's the fact that they are designed to restrict blood flow that makes correct sizing of paramount importance. If it is too small then it will cut off blood flow which isn't good for your penis and if you get one that's too big then it won't do its job properly as it won't restrict blood flow out of the penis.

Diameter Or Circumference - Know The Difference

Unfortuntaly there is no standard way of listing cock ring sizes, some companies will sell cock rings by diameter and others will sell them on circumference so you need to know the difference between these two measurements.

The diameter and circumference are easy to understandYou will need to measure around the penis at the point where you want the cock ring to sit. Most guys will have the cock ring placed at the base of the penis but if you are buying an e-stim electrode cock ring then you may be wanting to place it just under the glans of the penis.

Now, a quick piece of advice - DON'T EXAGGERATE! I know all guys do it, everyone has a tendency to let's just say round things up a bit but when it comes to measuring yourself for a cock ring it needs to be ACCURATE. If you exaggerate you will just be wasting your money on something that won't work, it needs to fit you correctly in order to do its job or restricting blood flow and if you do exaggerate then it will be too loose.

The easiest measurement to take is the circumference of your penis so lets talk about measuring that first then we will talk about measuring the diameter (for a cock & ball ring, measure around the penis and the testicles).

How To Correctly Measure Your Penis - The CIRCUMFERENCE

The Circumference is easy to measureThe Circumference is simply the distance around the outside of the penis, measured at the point where you want the cock ring to sit and it's really easy to measure it correctly. Remember you need to take this measurement without exaggerating.

To measure the circumference take your time. Get yourself hard by whatever means necessary and then simply take a measuring tape or a piece of string and wrap it around the shaft of the penis where the ring will sit. Don't wrap it tightly just let it sit against the skin of your penis.

With a measuring tape simply note this measurement.

If you are using a piece of string then mark where it meets the end of the string then lay the string on a flat surface and measure it. This measurement is the Circumference.

How To Correctly Measure Your Penis - The DIAMETER

To measure the Diameter you start off by measuring the circumference as just discussed then you simply divide the measurement that you came up with by 3.14

This simple piece of maths can be done using a calculator, by using an app on your phone or even by hand.

Example of Diameter (US Imperial Sizes)

The Diameter is also easy to measureOK lets take a hypothetical circumference of 6 Inches, so in the formula below C=6. In the formula D is the diameter.

D = C / 3.14 (Diameter is equal to the circumference divided by 3.14)

So: D = 6 / 3.14

Therefore: D = 1.9 Inches

Example of Diameter (European Metric Sizes)

In this example we will take a hypothetical circumference of 15cm, so in the formula below C=15. In the formula D is the diameter.

D = C / 3.14 (Diameter is equal to the circumference divided by 3.14)

So: D = 15 / 3.14

Therefore: D = 4.77cm

Selecting Your Cock Ring

When browsing for cock rings you need to pay attention to the sizes and whether they are listed as Circumference or Diameter. You can now measure either but what do you do if your measurement sits between two cock ring sizes. Always look for a cock ring that is the same size as your measurement or slightly larger. Don't be tempted to go for one that is too tight as it will cut off too much blood flow, however if you opt for one that is too big then it isn't going to do its job at all.

That advice is for solid metal cock rings, if you are going to a flexible or stretchy cock ring made out of a material such as silicone the measurement is generally a one size fits all. An adjustable cock ring is an excellent choice as you can tighten to a fit that you like and it reduces the chance of doing yourself any damage.

Cock Ring Safety

The first time that you fit a hard cock ring do it when erect. Use some lube to help you slide the ring down your shaft to the position you want it. The reason why you fit it first to your erect penis is that if you made a mistake with your measurements you can't do yourself any injury by have a too tight cock ring on your penis stopping blood flow. Once you know your new cock rings fits correctly you can fit it before an erection as that is much easier.

Never wear a cock ring for longer than about 20 to 30 minutes, remove it to let the blood flow normally for about five minutes before fitting it again.

Remove immediately if you experience any pain, loss of sensation or discomfort.

Never sleep with a cock ring fitted.

Check that your cock ring isn't chaffing or rubbing on a condom if you are wearing one to prevent any future problem (in about nine months time).

Finally

Take your time when measuring your penis for your cock ring. Do so when erect and don't exaggerate. Cock rings can be a lot of fun and personally I find them a huge turn on when I see one on a cock. Think safety at all times when using one and finally, I hope that you have a lot of pleasure and enjoyment with your cock ring. They are a lot of fun to use.
