A ring fit for a penis

I really want to give this ring 5 stars. It is a body safe material, should last a long time, no smell, and slightly stretchy. However, do to its 3/4 inch width, it feels smaller than my Gear Essentials ring, and therefore it is not quite as comfortable. So therefore, 4 stars.

Use

There are a few different kinds of cock rings. There are the ones that go just around the penis, and there are the ones that go around the penis and the balls at the same time. There are the ones that vibrate, and there are the ones that don't. This cock ring from Tantus is meant to go around both. Since it is meant to go around both, it is a little more difficult to put on, in the fact that you can't be erect, but it is well worth it.

Material / Texture

The Tantus cock ring is made out of their 100% medical grade ultra-premium silicone. Silicone is one of the safest materials on the toy market, and receives a 10 on Eden's material safety scale. When dry, the silicone does have some drag to it. It is smooth and finished except for one side of the ring, where it almost looks like it was separated from the mold or another ring. It is not uncomfortable, just noticeable while looking at it. You can push and pull on it to change its shape, but it does not really stretch much. It only stretches when you pull really really hard. It has a very faint smell to it, but I can only smell that when I have it under my nose. Since it is silicone, I would recommend using only water based lube during your play session, because silicone lube can cause the ring to become sticky. Given proper care, this cock ring should last you a very long time.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The shape is simply a 1 7/8 inch ring on the inside, with 1/4 inch thick sides. The ring itself is 3/4 of an inch wide. Because of this width, it does have a very different feel from the only other cock ring that went around my balls that I tried, the Gear Essentials Titan .4, which is a little larger than 3/8 of an inch wide. For wear when sitting down, it is slightly uncomfortable if you have your legs together. While standing up, besides the slight feel of the ring around your penis, it is not uncomfortable. For removal, it is easier to wait until your erection has subsided, or you can pop one ball back through at a time, then your penis.
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Fitted - must measure before purchase

Care and Maintenance

Since the ring is made out of 100% silicone, it is non-porous. I personally clean with warm water and soap, but you can also clean the ring with a 10% bleach solution followed by rinsing it off, boiling it for 3 minutes, or throwing it in the top rack of the dishwasher without detergent. For storage, after I dry it off, I just place it in a toy bag with the rest of our silicone dildos. Since we keep it in a bag, lint and dust is not a factor. However, if you did leave it out, I'm sure it would collect a lot of lint and dust and would require a cleaning before use.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The ring came in a clear plastic clam shell case, with only two pieces of laminated paper inside. One is a small one at the bottom that states "Stay harder longer and enhance your orgasm." The other is a larger one that on the front says what the product is, and on the back it tells you what a cock ring does, how to wear it, and the different sizes they offer. It also tells you how to clean, and shows you with three pictures how to put the cock ring on. The packaging is also 100% recyclable, and I will be doing just that. If you would be gifting it, the packaging could easily fit in a stocking, since it is only about 8 1/2 inch tall, and 5 1/2 inches wide.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

Since the other ring that I tried was not as wide as this Tantus cock ring, if I could order again, I would order the slightly larger beginner cock ring. It is not unwearable for me, but it is not as comfortable, especially for longer term wear.

Experience

The first time that my wife and I tried to put this on, I was already hard. So after running around the apartment, I became soft. However, I had also been standing around in just my boxer briefs for the last 20 minutes, and I was a little cold, and my balls were very tight. Because of the erection and cold, the first time putting on this ring was extremely difficult. I wondered if I had ordered the wrong size, but I really do think that the Gear Essentials ring that I used to have was the same size. After grabbing some water based lube, and some pulling and stretching, we were able to get both balls through, and then my cock. The ring is decently comfortable while I was not erect, and it works as advertised once I became erect. However, it is not as comfortable as my Gear Essentials Titan .4 inch. But we still forged ahead in the name of science. The ring did give me a harder erection, which both my wife and myself were able to tell. During my probably 30 plus minutes of wear, it was never uncomfortable, and I never lost any feeling in my balls. Today, I decided to put it on again after having a warm body, and it was much much easier to put on. I was able to get both balls and my penis through fairly quickly, and no lube was necessary. I wore it sitting down at the computer for 30-45 minutes, but it was not as comfortable as the Gear Essentials ring. I blame this on it being 3/4 of an inch wide, which caused me to have to sit with my legs spread.
Follow-up commentary
This is a great cock ring, but it is different from the Gear Essentials Titan 4. It is wider than the Titan which makes it more restricting while being the same size. Due to it being made out of silicone instead of metal, it has quite a bit of drag to it, so unless you use lube, it is difficult to put on and to take off. It likes to "drag" my package along with it which is not a good feeling. There is nothing wrong with the ring, but because of these differences, I should have gone with the beginner cock ring which is 2 inches instead of the intermediate at 1 7/8 inch. I will replace this ring in the future.
