Cock Ring

If you are looking for a cock ring that is easy to use, easy to clean, does not have any vibrations, and will last a long time, then this cock ring is for you. However, make sure your measurements correspond to the sizing directions because that was my mistake in purchasing this product.

Use

Don't let the name beginner cock ring fool you, the name has nothing to do with how many times you've used a cock ring in the past, but instead on the size of the actual cock ring.

This could be used during solo masturbation or used with a partner to prolong ejaculation. As always with any cock ring, do not use for more than twenty minutes at a time due to potential nerve damage with prolonged use.

It is designed to be worn as a cock and ball ring. According to the directions, it looks easy to use. Step one, place a small drop of lubricant around the inside of the ring, step two, carefully place the testicles through the ring one at a time, and step three slide penis through ring as shown in the diagram located on the back of the package.

Material / Texture

This is a hypoallergenic, latex-free, phthalate free, non-porous silicone based cock ring. Silicone is one of the safest products on the market because it isn't porous and does not harbor bacteria.

It comes in two colors: black or red. I chose the black because my husband is red-green color blind so the color would be lost on him anyway and also because I figured he'd prefer black to begin with. It is nice that they offer the red color option though because it does add something nice besides your basic black.

From what I've read from other reviews, it does not have any additional texture which seems to be consistent with my experience of silicone vibes. They tend to be very smooth, velvety and luxurious with virtually no smell.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

Word of advice that I should have considered before purchasing this for my husband: measure, measure, and then re-measure. That being said I get this in the mail and my husband takes one look at it and says that's too big for me what were you thinking? I wasn't thinking about size honestly, I was thinking about the idea of a beginner cock ring sounded like a good idea because we are beginners when it comes to cock rings. I sure was wrong, but that's okay because hopefully I can pass on some of my knowledge to others so they do not make the same mistake that I did.

The size of this particular cock ring is 2 1/4" unstretched diameter and according to the product page has a 6 1/2" stretched diameter and is 1" wide. Now, I don't know if it really can stretch to 6 1/2" since my husband could tell immediately this was not going to fit. I would have liked to have done some testing for myself and included some pictures of my results, but we did not open it because we knew we would be returning it. It is softer, stretchable, and safer than other rings on the market making it easier to put on, remove, and more comfortable to wear. Tantus also makes two other cock rings, the intermediate and advanced versions.

The intermediate version has a maximum stretch length of 2", unstretched length of 1 7/8", and is 3/4" wide. It is a little smaller than the beginner delivering a tighter fit and therefore a more intense effect.

The advanced version has a maximum stretch length of 2 1/4", unstretched length of 1 3/4" and has a 1 3/4" diameter. The advanced is the smalles of the three and provides the most intense effect.

Now that I know that beginner cock ring determines size not level of play, I will be more accurate the next time I decide to order a cock ring for my husband.

From what I can tell, it looks to be designed very well. I like the idea that it is a solid ring; that's the reason I chose this particular ring. The only other ring we have is one that came in a kit that snaps and the snaps could become irritating after some use.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I'm not able to give any specific details here because we didn't open the cock ring because my husband knew without a doubt this product would not fit him.

However, I can give you some simple facts; it does not come with an attached bullet vibrator so you will not have any additional stimulation with this product.

In general, cock rings are designed to create larger, harder erections that intensify the sensation of a male's orgasm. Cock rings primarily slow the flow of blood from the erect penile tissue, thus maintaining erection for a much longer period of time. This makes for a harder, thicker erection with more pronounced veins and is good for those who want to increase their performance.

Care and Maintenance

The superior quality of Tantus silicone makes all Tantus toys boilable, bleachable, and easy to clean. You can use warm water and soap or your favorite toy cleaner.

As with any silicone product, it is best to use water-based lubricant and do not use silicone-based lube because mixing the two can cause break down of the toy.

Do not store around other silicone products for the reason I just mentioned. You can store it in the original packaging, toy box, or storage bag.

Packaging

The front shows the ring through the clear package and also announces to whoever is around when you open it that it is a 100% ultra-premium Tantus silicone Cock Ring. It shows the size of the cock ring and mentions stay harder longer and enhance your orgasm. That being said, that's not discreet, but if you don't mind others knowing what you have then good for you.

On the back of the package, Tantus gives three steps on how to properly use this cock ring.

It looks to be easy to open where it would just come apart at the top with little to no effort involved at all which is always wonderful. I believe the package has snaps in the front and back together for easy opening and closing.

Experience

Although we were not able to use this ring due to sizing, I feel this product exudes superior craftsmanship and should last for a long time. I'm sorry I wasn't able to offer personal use with this product, but I hope I made the point clear that you have to know your or your partners exact measurements for this product to work effectively. If I can save one person the hassle from ordering the wrong size, then our experience with it was worth it.
Follow-up commentary
I ended up returning this, and informing everyone that asks on the forums to please measure before purchasing. This was a great learning experience for me and I hope anyone that reads my review will take my advice and measure to ensure a proper fit.
