J'aime la cock ring

This ring is perfect for someone that wants a more lasting product but at the same time doesn't have the money to buy a really high-end ring costing 80-130 dollars. This silicone ring is sure to last you a long time, and with three functions it's hard to beat it for the quality at this price. The bullet can be taken out and changed with any standard size bullet. Larger width men may want to stay clear of this ring as it only stretches so much.

Use

This cock ring is a good compromise between the super cheap, super stretchy TPR rings and the more expensive luxury silicone rings. The L'Amour silicone ring by Cal Exotics definitely had the average man in mind from the price and diameter while still being made of a highly safe material that will last for a long time and not just be disposable after half an hour. Like all cock rings, the toy is used to be placed on the penis (flaccid is best to make things easier) or a dildo made of a material that doesn't melt with silicone (glass, medal, ceramic, plastic, etc.). Cock rings are intended to help keep blood flow to the penis and can even make the member feel larger than normal. Rings should only be worn for 30 minutes before being taken off to not lead to any medical problems, even if it feels comfortable on the penis. Since you can't put a condom on it, I wouldn't advise sharing this with other couples unless you boil or bleach it properly first.

The bullet can also be removed from the toy and can be used for clitoral stimulation in a couple or for solo play time. The ring is so basic and easy to use that it would be great for beginners who know they like cock rings to even the advanced users, since the vibrations on the bullet are pretty impressive for such a small toy. The product is also waterproof for a great aid in shower fun without getting in the way.

Material / Texture

Ring-
The ring is made out of silicone, which is a material that can be bleached, boiled, and even stuck inside a dishwasher to clean. It rates as a 10 on the safety scale for being hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalates free; meaning that's is fully body-safe. It can be stretched, but not without quite a bit of tension, since it's thick on the edges. The silicone is smooth, without any noticeable texture and not that much drag to it. Of course, the toy attracts some lint but it's not as horrible as some silicone toys. If you're going to use lube to help put it on and take it off, remember to use only water-based as to not melt the toy. The ring doesn't have any taste or smell to it, so it would be fine to use as a blowjob aid if your partner likes vibrations on themselves.

Bullet-
The bullet is made of a simple hard plastic that is smooth but not ultra-shiny like some plastic can be. It's seamless with only a hole-shaped indention at the bottom of the toy. On the other side is the button which I believe is made of silicone. Plastic rates as an 8 on the safety scale for being both non-porous and phthalates-free. If you are using just the bullet by itself, you can use any kind of lube with it as long as you don't get it on the button. The bullet is both tasteless and odor free, but I don't really see why you would want to be putting it in your mouth in the first place.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The design of the toy is pretty basic, but it does come with a hole to stick an average size bullet into it. The actual ring is a bit bigger than some of the other options. The only things different in the design of this cock ring and others is the main hole, which instead of being a full circle, is more of a rounded trapezoid, and the bottom is significantly thinner than the rest of the ring. There is a seam on the inside of the part that goes around the penis but my partner said he couldn't feel that at all when it was on him.

Although the silicone stretches I can't see it fitting all men comfortably, but it should be fine for men of average size or slightly larger. I would recommend putting it on a penis that isn't hard so it will be easier, but if you want to attempt it while he's/you're hard, then you can. However, it might have to be more pushed on than placed around the shaft.

The ring comes in two colors - pink and purple - and while they aren't horrible, I would have liked to see another choice. To only have pink and a pretty light purple color just screams girly to me, and while my partner didn't really say anything, I found it odd that an object that is intended to go on a male's penis doesn't even have a black/red option to be less gender specific. As a female, I didn't even like the purple one, so I think a male buying a cock ring would have an even harder time with buying this unless they just love purple or pink.

The overall length of the toy is 2 3/4 inches with a width of 1 3/4 inches. The product page says that the ring has a unstretched diameter of 1 inch while the max stretched diameter is 2 1/2 inches, but I find that hard to believe. It was hard for me to stretch to what I felt was the max because there was a great deal of tension felt. This is good for a cock ring because it needs to be tight to hold blood in, but at the same time I don't think this toy would be good for men that are pretty thick.
    • Beginner
    • Only fits on penis shaft
    • Tight fitting

Functions / Performance / Controls

This cock ring has a very basic bullet that comes with it. The bullet has three levels of vibration strengths, and even the low setting is pretty decent. The bullet itself is pretty quiet; when using it, I couldn't hear the toy on the low or medium setting under a blanket when my fan was on. I could, however, hear the third setting but I don't think you could really hear it through a closed door. The vibrations are buzzing and it might make the person wearing the toy feel a little numb after a while, but my partner didn't say anything about it. The bullet takes 3 watch batteries, which is great because they are easy to find and the box even comes with 6 batteries, so you have a spare set. When putting in the batteries you will see a little paper insert that shows you how to correctly put the batteries in - keep that. You will need to have that in the toy touching the copper wires on the side for the toy to work. If you just put the batteries in without the paper, they will start jumping around on their own and it will go off and not turn off when you press the button.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to use
    • Strong vibrations

Care and Maintenance

You can clean this toy with simple warm water and soap or by using antibacterial sprays or wipes. For a more clean toy you can pop out the bullet and boil the ring, place it in the dishwasher, or put it in a 10% bleach to water solution (making sure to wash it off well afterwards). The toy is fully waterproof, making for super-easy cleanup, and with the simple design there aren't really many places for germs to hide as long as you make sure to clean the hole where the bullet resides. Because the toy is silicone it should be covered up unless it's only touching materials that are compatible with it. This also means not to put it beside other silicone toys that are made from a different company.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging is simple non-discreet plastic that is see-through with just a very simple frosted design on the front. It wasn't something I really wanted to keep, so I just decided to put it into recycling and save some space by putting both the rings I own in a clean sock (you could use a plastic bag if you wanted) so that they were both together and not touching other toys. The writing on the packaging wasn't informational at all and there wasn't any battery or warranty information on the box or inside of it. In the box you'll find a plastic insert with a mold on the top to hold the bullet, a mold in the middle to fit the ring, and a small circle mold to hold the six batteries. If I was gifting this I would definitely wrap it; it doesn't have anything provocative like naked ladies, but you can clearly see the toy and someone would know right away what it was.
