Double the pleasure, double the fun...its 2, 2, 2 toys in 1 !!!!

This soft set of attached rings works to maintain a good erection and is comfortable for me and the Mrs. It is useful during partner penetrative AND oral sex. Also, it works just as well for solo times. It will accommodate just about any man interested in lasting longer than a few minutes. Try this and I am sure you'll be satisfied!!!

Use

Those of you past the age of 45 or so probably recognize my take off of the popular limeric from a gum commercial. Certain to "double your pleasure" the "Support Master/Double Pleasure" will "double your fun" also. Simply put, this is a one piece triple cock and ball ring. It can be used during mutual sex in a variety of positions as well as masturbation.

There are several important caveats about using cock or cock and ball rings. Always put on the ring when you are in a flacid, or near flacid, state. If you already have a full hard on, likely you do not need the ring at that point and you risk injury if you do decide to place it on your balls and/or shaft. The package states clearly not to use the ring longer than 30 minutes; never use while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and do not sleep with the ring still in place. You can use it multiple times in a day but always allow at least 60 minutes between use. Not following these warnings may result in permanent injury to your equipment: something none of us, or our partners, would want!! OUCH!!!

There are no instructions that come with this ring so some prior knowledge of cock rings is necessary. Slowly pull the 3 rings over a non-erect penis with the largest ring first. The man's testicles are pulled through the largest ring. The 2 other rings remain on the penis. To the credit of California Exotics, there is a clear picture of placement on the back of the package.

A cock ring is used to maintain an erection. It does not stimulate to cause an erection but is a great aid in maintaining an erection and helping you last longer. It is often recommended by MD's specializing in sexual dysfunction along with a penis pump to help bring on an erection. The cock ring helps hold the increased blood flow in the penis which in turn keeps the erection.

This triple ring has a straight piece of the same soft material holding the 3 rings in place and helping the shaft of the penis respond to rising balls and bending, in a good way. The 2 smaller rings are covered with nubs, which neither the Mrs. or I gained any aditrional pleasure from but neither did they distract from the rings' function.

Material / Texture

The EF description of this item lists it as "TPR". However, TPR toys are safe with both water and silicone lubes. On the package this comes in, it states that ONLY WATER LUBES should be used. The EF site has more information than the packaging, so use your best judgement.

I can only use my best judgement to "guess" what the material is used in the composition of this cock ring. Unfortunately the box that is used for packaging does not identify any materials. In very fine print, it does say that only water based lubes should be used. That and the soft, stretchy nature of the rings, brings me to the conclusion that it is made of silicone products. It is important to know the material because there are many people (both users and partners) who are sensative to many materials. It appears porous and should never be shared--even with condums. The nature of placement and use makes it impossible to protect yourself by use of a condum. However, it is unlikely to contact any sexual fluids during normal use. Err on the safe side.

There is no odor to the cock ring: a major plus for most guys. It is nice not to add a distracting scent while taking care of business. The Mrs. has her own sweet scent and I do not like it being masked by any artificial scents.

Each ring is very, very stretchy. I can use any of the 3 rings as a "bracelet" without any difficulty or extreme discomfort. It will fill 99.9% of the men out there. If there is a man who it will not fit, well..I am glad that guy is not me. With consistant overstretching I am sure the lifespan of this will diminish greatly, so exercise caution , remember, although you may be tempted to "play" with this, it is not a toy.

It is very smooth with absolutely no noticeable seams. This is excellent because neither your or any partners need worry about being scratched by sharp edges.
    • No odor
    • Porous
    • Stretchy

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

California Exotics has a winning functional design with the Support Master/Double Pleasure. It is 3 grayish/translucent rings attached to a straight line (of the same color and material) at even .5" intervals. The larger ring makes it easy and comfortable to pull the testicles through it without injury. The 2 smaller rings are capable of remaining snug on smaller shafts and stretch to remain snug on larger shafts. It is flexible and "moves" along with you so that there is no danger of being pinched during intercourse. The nubs on the 2 shaft rings are (I assume) meant to provide additional pleasure to the wearer and/or partner, but neither the Mrs. or I found that to be the case. A set of rings without nubs would, in my opinion, be just as effective.
    • Will fit most men
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles

Functions / Performance / Controls

There are not moving or electrical components to this cock ring so it is always available for use. No need to remember to replace the batteries or having the toy run o9ut of steam at a crucial moment. A real bummer if you have ever used a vibrating device only to have it fizzle in the middle of action.
    • Batteries cannot be replaced
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

It is manditory that you wash this before and after each use with some liquid soap and water. I find an anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid the best. It is gentle and does a good job. Rinse under warm, running water to remove any soap residue.

Mine is stored in a clear plastic "zip top" bag. Assuming this is a silicone toy, it should be stored in its own bag and not come in touch with other toys. It is small enough so that if you want to "hid" thiss, place the plastic bag in a pair of sox and place back in your sox drawer. If anyone does see it...what were they doing in your drawers anyway? If you keep a shoe box for your smaller toys, this would fit there also.

Packaging

The ring set comes in a clear plastic bag inside a small cardboard box--standard California Exotic's packaging. There is no instructions inside, which would make it difficult for a novice. There is a picture on the back which clearly shows the placement of the rings, but I don't know if someone unfamiliar with cock rings would know what it is intended to accomplish.

The box itself is not discreet--the large picture of an erect penis showing off the rings is not something you expect to find at "Toys R Us". Get rid of the box--its not useful for anything but shipping.

Personal comments

I am always suspicious of any endorsements on a product. This product is endorsed by "Dr. Joel Kaplan". A quick online search revealed to me that the good Dr. Kaplan is a PhD. psychologist specializing in human sexuality. He also has his own line of penis pumps as well as ingestible enhancement and penis enlargement pills.

My personal urologist beleives in the use of penis pumps and cock rings as a way to help men achieve and maintain an erection. He also suggests a healthy life--good nutrition, exercise and the "use it or lose it" philosophy. There is no "quick fix" or easy way to enlarge your penis, other than plastic surgery, which most men would shy away from.

Dr. Kaplan has picures of "success stories" on his site. If you look carefully he, he notes the "before" pics are in a "flacid" state and the "after" pics are in an erect state. Hmmm...correct me if I am wrong, but isn't an erect penis larger than a flacid one? Also, look carefully at the pictures and you will notice that the "after" pics are a "blown up" or closer camera shot of the penis. I just don't like that and it seems deceptive.

Having said that, this product, the "Support Master" will do a good job in maintaining your erection for extended sessions--something both the Mrs. and I both enjoy. I feel it is safe and have no problem "endorsing" this product. Heck--I bet Dr. Kaplan never even used this!!!

Experience

I am rating this as a 4 start item because it is both comfortable and effective. I took 1 star away because of the lack of any instructions, no stated material and the endorsement of a questionable source.
Follow-up commentary
Well, this didn't hold up very well. With all the stretching to pull it on it started to show wear after only a couple of weeks. I've never used cock rings very much so maybe it's just me, but I didn't enjoy putting it on prior to sex. It felt like I was putting on a condum (but no reduction of feeling). Also, sometimes I take quite awhile reaching climax (thank you, Viagra, Levitra and Cialis...) so the ability to last even longer is not appealling to me. With the drugs and the cock ring, it was just too much for me. From the Mrs., she didn't feel anything special about it so we gave it up. I tried it several times and we decided it just isn't for us. It may be a good beginner ring because of the ease of putting it on and the bargain price.

    Thanks a lot. The unknown material would probably worry me a lot too.

    That is weird that they don't specify the material but do say water lubes only. Several reviews have mentioned differences between the EF description and the manufacturer's information.
