Cock ring perceptions--despite what you may know now, what did you first think of them?

Supervixen Supervixen
Up until very recently, I've paid no attention to cock rings for my guy--he stays hard without a problem, and can last a nice and long time in the sack, so why would I care about cock rings? My perception of them at that point of course, was that they are made EXCLUSIVELY for men who have problems with sustaining or getting an erection. Now, after the wonderful education of this lovely community and reading reviews of actual cock rings, I realize that for many men, they also enhance bloodflow in a pleasant way that makes them look/feel a little bigger, and most importantly, they prolong orgasm. Sounds pretty cool, now. So what are your perceptions of cock rings? What did you first think of when presented with the concept behind them? Do cock rings have a "only men who can't keep it up use those" reputation, or is there more to them for you? What did you first think?

I've always known there's more to them than being erection aids

I've actually used them for both pleasure and to help my partner maintain a solid erection

My only experience with any sort of cock rings were the kind that were not meant to keep the man hard, but were made to fit around a man (or dildo) to give extra stimulation for the lady.

This. But I did also have similar misconceptions about cock rings before joining Eden. When I discovered the way they can prolong and intensify orgasms, we purchased a couple from EF right away!

Did you have a positive experience with them?

I love my Omega c-ring - for all it does including help with ED. At 58, every little bit helps!

I actually didn't think anything about them until I joined EF and started browsing the toys.

I'd heard about them being good for increasing the power of the orgasm before I'd even realized they were good for men with ED.

My first impression, decades ago, was a worry about vascular safety. To this day I have seen no medical study validating safety to the blood vessels or valves.

I read your review and commented on it! It was really informative, and it actually got me more interested in trying one out.

I admit, when I first brought it up, I was worried he'd think that I thought he needed one. But I was careful to tell him what I've learned here at Eden (he appreciates all the research and time I'm spending looking into sex toys for us--good man! ), and the prolonged orgasm sold him. I think I might show him your review, actually. He says he's not squeamish about trying it out, and he's never tried before, but would like to with me. So, I'm probably going to be the one to pick one out for him.

The metal ones look hot, but intimidating. Since you say they are for an advanced use, perhaps we should try something stretchy or snap on first, right?

I always thought of them as prolonging orgasm more than anything else.

What exactly is vascular safety - and who would conduct this research?

Is there some study that indicates there is a problem?

I don't care if like them, use them or not. But unsubstantiated fear seems out of place.

Your comment reminds me of those who are afraid of glass toys in spite of a huge volume of experience that indicates that they are quite safe and effective.

To the extent possible we should separate our fears from reality.

I had no clue what they were when I first saw them.

I've always known there was more to them. I simply like the way they feel, the look of them when I'm wearing them and I sometimes wear metal rings 24/7, and especially the benefit they provide during sex as they make the penis much harder, thicker and I've noticed just a bit of an overall size increase. My biggest question when I first discovered metal cock rings was how the hell do I get that on. I've become a pro now and my wife and I are so glad I discovered them.
