Cock Strangler

This was such a good idea, but as is often the case the road to hell is paved with good intentions. This cock ring is too tight, the vibrations are too buzzy, and honestly I think it may have been created to cause pain and irritation rather than arousal.

Use

This is a cock ring, with attached beads for anal use and a removable bullet, however it's a tiny tiny tiny ring. Honestly, I'm so glad that neither me or my partner has a flesh and blood cock because... if either of us did, one of us would be in for a world of pain with this ring, I had a lot of trouble even getting it onto one of our strap ons.

Unless you have a very very narrow penis or a great pain tolerance, this is not the ring for you. As well the vibrations are buzzy, the beads on the back end are too short to have a point, and despite a silicone cock wring being a wonderful idea, this entire thing is just completely poorly executed.
    • Can be worn during intercourse

Material / Texture

This is made of velvety silicone, which is somewhat stretchy. There is a small seam running round the outside of the ring, and a second seam running around the inside of the ring. It's not got much texture and although I could feel the seam on my fingers when I put several through (keep in mind my partner and I don't have a flesh and blood cock to test these things out on) it was noticeable but not uncomfortable. The ring itself has a ribbed texture, but that's not significantly noticeable when it's on.

The silicone is scentless, tasteless, and somewhat stretchy (but not stretchy enough for the insanely small size). The velvety testure of the material is nice in that is doesn't tend to collect dust link many other silicone products.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

This really is a nice concept, the removable vibe, the beads which serve as a counterbalance to the vibe, and the choice of material are all... wonderful, but the execution is so bad that all these wonderful ideas just make it more of a disappointment.

This ring features a bullet vibe in a loop of silicone, and a string of squishy silicone beads hanging from the lower portion of the ring. The beads are not long enough to be used by the wearer while the wearer is wearing the ring, and the ring is incredibly incredibly tight (un-stretched the hole is about the width of a wine cork, and the material has some give... but not a whole lot). It's tightness makes it difficult to get on and off, and generally I'm just not happy with this ring.
    • Tight fitting

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibe has three levels, press the button once and it's gentle, press it again and it's up to medium, and a third time and it's on strong. These are relative terms in this case as the vibrations... aren't that strong, though I suppose definitely stronger than average for a cock ring. The vibrations are also heavily on the buzzy side, which is something I really don't like. As well, let me just again stress my GOD THE SIZE. This thing is tiny, wee, itty bitty and will probably injure an average sized man, and cause a small man a fair amount of pain.

I suppose the one upside to all of this awfulness is that, because it's so mind-bogglingly hellasciously tight... it stays in place quite well. It vibrates enough for the vibrations to carry subtly through my silicone strap ons... but the buzzy vibrations are more irritating than arousing.
    • Hard to put on / take off

Care and Maintenance

Honestly? I'd recommend you don't bother as this thing is evil, but if you must know, it's silicone so only water based lube, and don't store with other silicone toys... and it's not water proof. You can remove the bullet and boil it to disinfect it. As for storage, I removed the bullet and gave it to my cat as a toy.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

This came in a plastic box that gives a view of the cock ring, but doesn't show any naked people, certainly a bit subtler than a lot of sex toy packaging, but the graphic design still had a slightly "church circular"-ish quality.
Follow-up commentary
I think this irritating nightmare of a non-toy ended up moving with the cat (and my ex girlfriend) away. After the initial use we never touched it again, and I can't say that was due to laziness or our rapidly deteriorating sex life, it was just a horrid toy.

    This silicone really doesn't have much stretch to it, does it? Thanks for the review, and I'm sorry that this toy was so lame!

    Excellent review. At least the cat has a new toy... so it wasn't all bad.
