  • Jockinthebox's Guide to Steel Cock Ring Selection

    Surgical steel cockrings, sized correctly, can be comfortably worn 24/7 to gain girth and length passively (IMO). See my thread https://www.pegym.com/forums/groups/cockring-d1421-extended-wear-cock-ring-challenge-girth-length-gains.html
    for details on the Extended Wear Cock Ring Challenge I did to gain !/2" in erect girth and 2+% in overall erect length, in 1 month!

    HOW TO MEASURE CORRECTLY:
    MAKE SURE YOU Measure
    completely FLACCID: Using a string, wrap snuggly (but not too tightly) completely around your entire package (beneath your balls just in front of perineum and over top of your shaft flat against fatpad or pelvic bone). Mark or hold the string carefully, then measure the length on a ruler and divide that number by 3.14 (PI) to determine the targeted inside diameter of the ring you will need to order. If you order larger, you run a risk of the ring being too large when flaccid and falling off (particularly if you're a "grower") plus you won't see results from holding any blood in your "flushed" flaccid to cement gains. During sex, edging, and when otherwise erect, your ring will be tight, but not too tight that blood flow is reduced to a dangerous level. A test for proper fit: while holding your shaft with one hand, turn the ring around on your flaccid- it'll be tight, but will turn, and you can force an index fingertip between the ring and your shaft (unless you have GIANT FINGERS) .

    KEY VARIABLES TO CONSIDER:
    "Hang": A Guys hang is as unique as his fingerprint or signature. The attachment of the scrotum and how wide or narrow it is are important to consider for both fit and comfort of your ring. I urge you to check my flaccid pics in my profile albums for comparison to your individual "hang". Notice that my scrotum is wider at the attachment alongside my shaft than most guys. An important consideration because pinching here makes long-term wear uncomfortable.

    SUGGESTIONS BEFORE ORDERING: Go to a hardware store or Lowes/Home Depot (US) or a local PORN Shop and purchase a couple different sizes of steel rings (cheap) and try wearing those for a day to see if your daily activity causes the ring to become loose or if it's too tight (BE CAREFUL TO REMOVE IT) then try a different size, next day. A good idea, just to make sure you've gotten a perfect fit before investing in a quality surgical steel ring. I urge you only buy surgical steel ones since they are seamless, don't cause skin rash, and are heavier weight (feel great around your package!).

    Ordering on-line: Most sites stock a variety of designs and styles. I like plain steel rings 1/2 " wide, but widths vary from very thin low-profile up to 3/4". My favorite is a "Horseshoe" style with a gap for the dorsal vein between 2 steel balls on top. It's the most comfortable for me for 24/7 wear; plus the steel balls give my GF great clitoral stimulation when deep-thrusting or grinding during sex!
    (Your mileage may vary)! PM me for additional sites, as sizes and availability are constantly changing online, or just search on your own. Many good quality rings are available through ebay, amazon, and others. I can't list links here in the open forums as it's considered advertising by rules of PEGYM Admin. (sorry). Most sites stock 1.75" (45mm) and 2" (50mm) inside diamteters. You'll need to do a search for larger sizes, though if needed. 45mm is the most popular size that fits most men. I had to get a 55mm due to my uniquely wider scrotum, and it was VERY hard to find and also expensive! Most standard horseshoes cost around $35 + shipping (US). Standard full rings are usually $18-$25.

    I DO NOT recommend Hardwear (Brand) Horseshoe rings, however. They are cheaply made, break, have a weirdly uncomfortable swale or curve made into them that pinches your dorsal vein, and are difficult to put on and take off. If you search forums and read comments, they generally have BAD reviews from those who've purchased them and the CS @ Hardwear is equally unresponsive to customer complaints (IMO).

    How to put on/ take off a steel cock ring: Completely FLACCID, hold ring below testicles pulling scrotum skin through ring followed by each testicle, individually. Pull your scrotum down fully, then (use lube if necessary) bend penis head /glans downward through ring while pulling ring back flat against your pelvic bone. Adjust ring beneath your balls so it rides just in front of your perineum. To remove, reverse this process. Takes some practice, but you should be able to put a steel ring on or remove it in about 10 seconds.

    Contact me if you have any questions. I'm glad to help you get your custom "FIT" on!

    Great post Jock! Just wondering if you plan on using a cockring to anchor the Phallosan belt when you get it? A lot of people have complained about "friction burn" with the foam ring that comes as standard...would be interesting to see if a cockring solves that problem.

    Lots of living to do yet unseen and a more stories yet untold!

      Yeah, I'm considering wearing either my full ring or maybe my horseshoe, depending on which works best. I know Pioneer Technics wears a cocksling type ring (one with a perineum simulator made to the bottom) while wearing his PF & taking the Cock Ring Challenge... He says it's comfortable, too.

        If you could post whether you don't get "friction burn" using a cockring that would be great. That friction burn is a real pain in the...well...cock!

          I can imagine just from pics I've seen that a PF might cause friction burns around your base, so I think using some cocoa butter to keep the base moist along with maybe a full ring style cock ring might alleviate that. I'll try different widths (I have several), and report what works best. Should be getting my PF in Monday I think, since Julian said it was shipping Tuesday. I think they promise 5 day delivery.

                AHH, being a Brit, you, my cheeky monkey-friend, like "Monkey finger".....ah-la the famous Beatles tune, "Come Together". right? More appropriately, the song should have been named "CUM Together" (IMO), but that was 1970 or so, and just "Wasn't DONE"!

                  Here is a tip to get your penis in after both testicles are in:

                  If you are completely flaccid you can avoid any kind of friction on the shaft and glans by pushing your penis into your shaft skin (picture what you have to do for foreskin restoration) and go as far in as possible.

                  Push the end of your penis into the ring and then press the ring into your body. Your penis will unsheathe itself and you're in!

                    I'm a beginner with PE but this ring thread has me really interested. How long into PE should I be to be able and start with a ring?

                      You can wear a properly fitted steel cock ring without PE experience. Just NEVER try wearing the stretchy constrictive type rings for more than 30 minutes. Those are only intended to promote holding an erection for sex. You risk tissue damage or even tissue death wearing constrictive rings longer than 30 minutes. I'll be glad to help you get your sizing perfect for your physiology; just review the steps in the thread again on the Cockrings Group site for more detailed info on the next steps. Also read about the EWCR Challenge there as well.

                        I just measured and it came out to 2.5" after the calculation. So id now look for that inside diameter ring??

                          Hi Jock

                          I've been testing out the steel cockring thing with some harness rings (stainless) that I bought from a hardware store.

                          So far experience has been good. The thicker 50mm fits snug when erect but since I'm a huge grower tends to start to slide down when flaccid. So I've been squeezing into a 45mm thinner ring. Fits a tad snug and occasionally causes a bit too much pressure when erect. But except for friction burn (I wear for a three or four days and then remove it for a few days to get rid of the red ring while massaging in some vitamin e creme and cocoa butter body lotion) and I do have to say except for the trouble squeezing my nuts through the ring one at a time and then doing the flaccid gopher move to get the shaft through that I really enjoy the results. Just wish I could find something between 45 and 50 locally to get the perfect fit.

                          Don't recommend it but I also found if I slide a 40mm ring to the base of just my shaft and do a quick pump to get to max size it puts enough pressure to keep a rock hard erection without cutting off blood flow too much and feels great. I've only tried it once and the only concern is being careful taking it off without ring jelqing my shaft and blowing out a vein or causing any other problems. But am thinking I may try that one night when the wife wants to play with the lights out and hit her with my max size with an 11 out of 10 and see if she squeals. Lol

                            Not likely! I think you didn't pull the string tightly enough. Reason I say that is MOST guys wear a 1.75" (45mm) inside diameter ring. If your ring is too large, particularly if you tend to turtle during the day, it won't hold a flushed flaccid, it will want to slide off your unit while going about your regular day, and you won't gain any benefit from wearing the ring. Plus it is just a pain, having to constantly slide it back on or up on your shaft constantly. The largest ring made is 2.25" (55mm), so unless you're a REALLY BIG guy with a package to match, you didn't pull the string tightly enough when you measured.

                            PM me if you need more specific details regarding your fit & physiology. A MAJOR factor is your scrotum attachment alongside or below your shaft when fitting a cock ring, both for comfort and maintaining engorgement. You can be fitted properly, but I need some answers to a few questions specific to your physio in order to help you choose the correct size.

                              Sounds like the 45mm /1.75" ring is the correct size for you. Wearing the harness ring is OK for a sizing test for a few days, but I recommend you buy a seamless surgical stainless steel ring for long-term wear. Here's why: Even though harness rings from the hardware store may fit, they are usually made out of cheap alloy with a thin chrome plating. The plating will wear off quickly and those alloys can cause some mean allergic skin reactions and irritation around your package. NOT something you want, believe me! Also, harness rings have a seam weld that is usually not so smooth and that can also cause irritation or abrasions around your package or on your penis head or foreskin when putting the ring on. Good quality pure stainless steel cock rings can be purchased for as little as $20. Why risk a nasty infection? Just buy the right rings for your dongs, guys! You've only got ONE, so give him a quality "bling"! He'll thank you for it!

                              Shaft rings are good for sex, but I wouldn't recommend long-term wear for them. The constrictive stretchy silicone ones will work for the shaft during sex and are easier to remove, but I MUCH PREFER wearing a steel horseshoe around my entire package for sex. The steel balls (topside) give the GF's clit a great workout when deep thrusting, intensifying her orgasms into multiple clitoral & vaginal simultaneously! She won't let me take it off! (LOL)!
