A Collar for Your Cock

This inexpensive, but durable leather and steel snap-on strap bridges the gap between the stretchy-type cocks rings and those made of metal. The material may chafe at its tightest setting, but overall it's an impressive leather device - a collar for your cock and balls.

Use

The Three Snap Cock Strap is a strap that fits around the penis and is used like a cock ring. It has three metal snaps that can be used to create four different sizes. The strap is used to restrict the flow of blood to help maintain and provide a stronger erection. It should not be worn at its tightest settings for more 20 minutes. However, it could be worn at its larger settings for longer periods of time as long it doesn't affect circulation.

Unlike a silicone or similar type cock ring, this strap cannot be stretched to fit. It is similar to a fixed-size cock ring, although the strap can be removed at anytime.

It's marketed as a CBT (cock and ball torture) device, but it certainly can be used in non-BDSM play. It's not painful to use unless you want it to be.

Material / Texture

This Cock Strap is made of smooth, durable leather, which has an Eden Fantasys material safety rating of seven. The material is strong and the strap itself is well made. It has a pleasant odor associated with leather. The strap is fairly easy to take care and should last a long time with proper care. To clean, simply use a damp cloth and mild soap to wipe it down.

Leather has a sensuous quality not only based on how it feels against the skin, but also based upon its cultural significance relating to BDSM.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

Unsnapped, the strap is nine inches in length and a half inch wide. The color of the strap is black and there are two parallel lines of red stitching running along either side. It has two shiny metal snaps on one end which can be connected to three corresponding metal connectors at the other, forming a ring. The metal snaps are very durable and are firmly embedded in the leather. The snaps allow for four different sizes ranging from the largest at 2.5 inches maximum diameter to the smallest, 1 and 5/8ths of an inch in diameter. The two middle sizes are 2.25 and 2.0 inches (see photo).



The measurements above are approximate. When the strap is connected at its smallest setting, the inside part of the strap tends to push up and stick out giving it a little extra room (1.75 inches).

Also, to help minimize the pulling or snagging of hair, I would recommend shaving or trimming pubic hair before using the strap.

    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Will fit most men

Functions / Performance / Controls

The strap can be put on two ways. First, before an erection, connect the snaps to the desired size and then insert the testicles followed by the penis. Putting it on this way could rub and chafe the skin. Second, whether the penis is erect or not, it can be put on by wrapping it underneath the testicles and around the penis, snapping it together at the desired diameter. This also allows the user to wear it at its tightest setting. One of the hazards of putting the strap on this way is that it's possible to snag a stray hair or two when snapping it together. It would also be very painful if some skin gets pinched between the snap and its connector.

The snaps require some pressure to connect. For best results place your index finger underneath the connector and push down on the snap with your thumb. When connected, the snaps should stay in place.

At its optimum setting for the user, the strap should function like any other cock ring. If the strap is connected at its tightest setting some users might need to watch out for signs of circulation problems, such as skin that is cold to the touch. In that case, remove the strap immediately.

The strap is a half-inch wide. This pushes the testicles away from the body and provides some nice tension. Depending on how tight the strap is, it can also be pushed out further, squeezing the testicles up against the shaft of the penis, which could be good for CBT play.

Upon removing the strap there were two red lines left in my skin where the threads had been made an impression. The area was a little tender, but the discomfort as well as the lines faded after a short while. Users need to be aware that leather can chafe if the strap is too tight and rubs against the skin.
    • Easy to use

Packaging

The Cock Strap is made in the U.S.A. by Red's Black Leather and is distributed by Doc Johnson. It came packaged in a clear plastic container. The only directions came from the label which had an illustrated phallus indicating how the strap was to be worn. The label also stated that this product is sold as a novelty item and that the makers aren't responsible or liable for how this product is used.

Personal comments

I purchased this cock strap because I wanted something different from the stretchy cock rings. Also, I was curious about fixed size rings. And, because it's leather we thought it would be fun to have a little light BDSM role play.

The strap worked as advertised. I found that the most comfortable fit for me was the setting at 2 inches in diameter. We did experiment with the tightest setting, but it became uncomfortable after awhile. My partner was concerned about the snaps snagging hair during sex, so we put the strap on so that the snaps were underneath the scrotum, however I don't think this makes much of a difference. She did enjoy how the strap pushed my testicles out and increased contact against her during sex.

At it's larger setting, the strap can be worn for longer periods of time, which make it possible to wear under clothes or while naked around the house. My partner joked that we should purchase a matching collar next.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this product and use it quite a bit. There's not as much prep time needed as there is with my metal rings - with this strap it's just snap and go.

    Excellent review, thanks for adding pictures. I think the leather is probably a no-go though.
