Use

The Omega mirror by Gear essentials is a cock ring. Cock rings come in two varieties. Those meant to be worn around the penis and those meant to be worn behind the penis and testicles. This one is meant to be worn behind the penis and the testicles. In case that is at all confusing think of grabbing as close to your body as you can and pushing your penis and testicles away from yourself. That is how this toy is worn.

A cock ring is used to help maintain an erection. It works by understanding a little physiology. The arteries bringing blood into your penis are on the inside of your penis. The veins taking blood away from your penis are on the outside. By constricting the veins with a cock-ring you make it harder for blood to leave your penis and it stays pooled there. This means more blood in your penis, and therefore a longer stronger erection.

A cock ring also simply adds a new sensation to sex. It feels different to have on. And it feels different to ejaculate with one on. They make it harder to ejaculate. Or cause it to take more time. I believe this is due to the constriction as well.

Cock rings are also used for their aesthetic appeal. You can get an industrial look with a metal cock ring like this one. You can get them in stone varieties that are black or green. You can get them in silicone in lots of different color. They do change how your genitals look and some people find it attractive.

I would classify this ring as advanced. Now there is nothing about this ring that a first time buyer would have a hard time with. The reason I classify it as advanced is because metal is incompletely unforgiving in how its stretch. This ring is 1 and 7/8' no matter how hard you pull on it. I do not want people to buy a cock ring and then have it arrive to large or small. I think it would be a good idea to order something cheaper, and then when you know the size you need order something a bit more expensive like this toy. It is possible though to simply measure yourself and order from those measurements.

This toy is best used before you have an erection. It is far simpler to get on. Putting a cock ring on is difficult if you do not know how to do it. You first slip one testicle though, then the other testicle through, then you bend the penis downward and push it through the ring. The ring is then where it belongs. To remove the ring you just do this is reverse. As you can imagine trying to do this with your penis erect would be quite difficult.

Cock rings can be used during partnered intercourse to help maintain an erection and prolong your stamina. They however can also be used during masturbation. They add a unique experience to it. It delays your ejaculation and causes it to feel longer and potentially more intense.

A warning about cock rings. They can be dangerous. If blood sits in your penis to long it can actually cause problems. Ischemic Priapism can occur. What happens with an extended erection is blood flows in, but not enough blood flows out. The ischemic means no oxygen. So you get old blood in your penis that does not have enough oxygen to supply the penile tissue. And you start have damage. In severe cases you get penis tissue death. Not fun. So most recommendations say to not wear a cock ring for longer than an hour. And if you do feel any pain in your penis to remove it immediately as well. This honestly should never be a problem. You can simply remove the cock ring before then, but it is something you need to keep in mind.

Material / Texture

The omega mirror is a cock ring made out of stainless steel. This gives it a couple of unique properties. It holds heat and cold very well, so you can use it for some temperature play. Typically when first placing this ring around your testicles it is cold. This is because room temperature is around 25 degree Celsius while body temperature is around 37 degrees Celsius. You could also heat or cool the ring using warm or cold water. This could add an interesting sensation to both partners. Cold tend to kill my erections, but that may not be universal. The ring is very smooth. It has no sharp edges and no seems to it which is nice. It feels like all of my other stainless steel toys (cold, hard, and smooth) and has a similar mirror finish to it. I think it looks nice. While wearing it, it has an industrial aesthetic to it. I think it accentuates your masculinity. The ring has no odor or taste. If you were being really picky and you stick it right under you nose you can smell a slight metallic scent. But it is not unpleasant and I think you can can consider it odorless. The ring has no texture to it. It is very smooth all the way around and has rounded corners.

Stainless steel is completely non-porous. So it will not harbor any bacteria or any body fluids. This makes it very easy to clean. There are no nooks or crannies on this ring, so cleaning takes less than a minute. Stainless steel also has some antibacterial activity, which is nice. In case you are wondering about how that works. Bacteria have cell membranes. This keep the bacteria in and the environment out. Stainless steel interferes with this membrane and it breaks, so the bacteria leaks all of its insides out and dies. You still need to wash the toy though after each use though.

Stainless steel has absolutely no stretch to it. The diameter of the ring is the diameter of the ring forever. Unless you are the hulk or far stronger than I will ever be this ring is not going to budge. This is not a bad thing, it just means there is less room for sizing error (for example compared to Tantus super soft c ring which I bought. It is very stretchy and can accommodate most sizes I believe)

Stainless steel is compatible with all lubricants. Oil, water, and silicone. I think is important to mention, because you can get some rubbing and skin pinching with a cock ring on, so lubricant can help reduce the drag and any unpleasantness.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

This cock ring is a circle with rounded edges. Think of a doughnut. There are no special bells and whistles on this toy. It was meant to be a cock ring and it is a cock ring and nothing more. I think it works well as a cock ring. I have no complaints about the design. It works well. I think the special feature of this toy is the material it is made out of. The metal gives it interesting temperature play possibilities, it gives it a nice mirror finish, and it makes it seem more luxurious. I think this is a luxury cock ring and that it is comparable to the rings made of agate, and aventurine.



This cock ring is meant to worn over both the shaft and the testicles. So it is quite large. Around the size of a hockey puck.

This toy as previously mentioned has no stretch, because it is made of metal. This makes it slightly more difficult to put on then a stretchy silicone cock ring. To put it on you first place one testicle through the ring, then your next testicle through the ring, then you bend your penis downwards and push the shaft through the ring. It will be slightly easier to do this with some lubricant on your penis and testicles. There will be less drag and they will slip through the ring easier. To remove it you simply reverse the order. Again I will stress you need to measure before purchasing a ring with no stretch.
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Fitted - must measure before purchase

Functions / Performance / Controls

I will say I am a 21 year old male and I bought this toy for a new sensation and some aesthetic appeal, so I can not say how well it works for making it easier to maintain an erection. I found some I could feel some increased pressure at the base of the shaft of my penis. But I did not find any change in ease of getting an erection. But erections are easy to get and I get erections outside of the bedroom lots still.

I can actually contemplate on delaying ejaculation though. I found while wearing a cock ring it is harder to orgasm. You get the feeling building up to it, and you penis starts to feel like it is swelling and normally ejaculation occurs shortly after. But that feeling of swollen almost ejaculation was harder to tip. It took longer during the period before I ejaculated. So if you are concerned with the length of your sex a cock ring could help with that. It also changes the sensation. I think the prolonged period just prior to ejaculation is interesting. It adds some novel to sex and it changes your orgasm. It feels different. A little longer, a bit different when it comes out (I found even the ejaculation felt slower)

Overall I think it was fun to try a cock ring. Both during masturbation and during sex. It adds a new sensation that can be fun.
    • Hard to put on / take off

Care and Maintenance

Stainless steel is very easy to care for. Stainless steel will not rust. They add chromium to it, and this prevents oxidation of the metal (for those of who care about the science). This means you do not need to worry if this toy gets wet.

To clean this toy I would typically just use some soap and water and wash it quickly. If you were having a new partner wear it though you can sterilize the toy. You can use a 10% bleach solution and then wash it off with water thoroughly afterwards. You can boil it. You can throw it in your dishwasher.

The only thing to be careful is to not use an abrasive cleaning pad on this toy. That will wreck the mirror finish. So just use a normal cotton cloth, or some other soft cloth.

This toy is made of metal, so I do not think it is going to break. You can drop it, throw it at a wall, play ring toss with it and it is going to hold up. So I think it is very low maintenance.

Stainless steel is compatible with all lubricants. Silicone, oil, and water based. Because stainless steel is completely non-porous a little lube can go a long way, because non of the lubricant is absorbed into the toy.

I store my toy in the drawstring bag that it came with.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The toy comes packaged in a little drawstring bag. It is very discreet. There are no markings on the drawstring bag. There are two tags attached to it. One seems to just have a bar-code, while the other has the name of the ring and its diameter. The drawstring bag has a velvety feel to it. It is not the most luxurious pouch ever (it just does not feel as nice or have the craftsmanship compared to the drawstring bags Lelo provides), but I have no actual complaints about it. It is nice to have storage provided.

The drawstring bag is quite discreet. If I saw it my first thought would not be sex toy. It would probably be something jewelry related.



There are no instructions with this ring. I think that is actually a fault. A cock ring is not necessarily intuitive to put on. Had I not read about them online previously and how to put one on I think I may have had difficulties using it.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Experience

This was a fun toy to try with my girlfriend. For starters she liked how it looked. She thought it was fun looking. And we had fun putting it on together and a couple laughs. It was just a lovely experience

The only problem with this is you can get some drag. The metal can drag against your partners skin and cause some irritation even though it is very smooth and has no edges. I think this could be overcome by using some lubricant on the ring, or by using some normal skin lotion on her legs and the ring will glide on that a bit better. That was really the only problem I had with this cock ring. That was also in missionary position. In other positions where you legs are not rubbing together as much I do not think it would be a problem.

I have been trying to think of other ways to use this toy and have actually come up with a couple. I am into BDSM. And we got a ball stretcher a month back on EF. Now to add more sensation you can add weights to these. They actually have places to hook the weights onto. So I thought this ring could be used as a weight. It is heavy and small and could be fun for that. I thought the same could be done with nipple clamps. The ring could be strung through the middle and then attach the nipple clamps. The ring would then pull down on the clamps and make for a more intense situation.
Follow-up commentary
I still think this is a good toy. It is made of metal so it has held up to use perfectly. There are problems with it, other than a few minor cosmetic scratches. I do not use this very often, but it is a nice cock ring when I use it. If you like cock rings then this toy is probably going to be good for a long time for you. Just remember to measure as metal has no give to it at all.

    I have the 2" brushed Omega and love it - as leatherlover indicated mine came with a cool round tin that is great for storage. However I have several of the tins and they tend to take up a lot of space.

    I'm going to get 1-7/8" version of this one to see if I can handle it just a little tighter!
