Smooth and comfortable to wear it also gives a weighty pleasurable feel while making the testicles more prominent and erections longer lasting and rock hard. It truly is a gift for both of us!

Use

Cock rings are obviously worn on the male appendage and have been used for centuries to enhance sexual pleasure by restricting blood flow out of the penis thereby creating a fuller, harder, longer lasting erection. I apologize for sounding all Discovery Channel here but I surmise this information may be necessary for the rookies that are considering investing in this beauty of a ring. The Black Band Stainless Steel Cock Ring is certainly priced for newbies to the world of this type of toy and I doubt that people will be disappointed.
Worn around both the cock and testicles, this ring is deliciously hard and unyielding, made my husbands package look beautiful, and it makes for a wonderful gift of jewelery for the man who has everything. Cock rings can be used for partner sex, solo masturbation, or just for looking good!

Material / Texture

PHS International is the maker of this cock ring and a quick check of their product catalog on Eden shows that they specialize in light bondage equipment such as floggers, cock rings, clamps, and restraints. This stainless steel ring has a deliciously naughty feel to it and the polished steel combined with the simple black stripe and solid weight give it a bondage/tough love image in line with their products. This cock ring isn't designed with pain in mind however, and is super smooth with wonderfully rounded edges for a comfortable feel. The stainless steel looks high quality, won't rust, and is excellent for temperature play because it holds heat/cold for a long time. Heat it up in warm water for soothing comfort or chill it down for a surprise! Another benefit of the stainless steel construction is that this cock ring is completely odor free and non-porous. The black band does appear to be a durable enamel paint but I can see where this may scratch or flake in the long term.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Porous

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The Black Band Cock Ring is designed to be worn around the base of the penis under the testicles unlike some other rings that only wrap around the shaft of a cock. Sizing is incredibly important especially with metal rings because there is absolutely no give (or stretch) to the material. To properly measure get your man hard and then wrap a string around the base of his package including the scrotum tightly enough to be snug but not uncomfortably cutting off all circulation. Next take this circumference measurement and divide by pi (not hair pie, but the 3.14 you learned in school). You now have the diameter that is required for a good-fitting cock ring. The measurement step is crucial or you'll wind up with a ring that is useless as we have personally found out before during our rookie exposure to these toys. The Black Band Cock Ring is manufactured in 1 3/4" and 2" diameters and ours is the 2" model which results in a perfect fit for my husband. Thickness and width are approximately 1/4" and 1/2" respectively which makes for a very sturdy, robust, and weighty cock bling which weighs close to 3 ounces.
Donning this cock ring is also a bit of an art form and must be performed with some care and patience and while the penis is flaccid. Apply some lube around the cock and ball sack and the inner surface of the ring then insert each testicle, one at a time, trough the circle. Once both balls are through the penis is slipped under the ring. This is the tricky part especially since most men feel lube and hands and pop erections which are impossible to get inside the cock ring at this point. It may take some time and relaxation and a hot bath or shower certainly helps to stretch out the scrotum making the whole process easier.
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Fitted - must measure before purchase
    • Will fit most men

Care and Maintenance

The Black Band Stainless steel Cock Ring is a breeze to care for because of the construction material. Silicone, oil, or water-based lubes can all be used with this toy without causing any harm to the gleaming finish. Soap and water cleanup will normally suffice but if you plan on sharing sterilization is possible by boiling or immersion in a diluted bleach solution. Personally I'd avoid the bleach cleaning because of concerns with damaging the black painted finish of the banding. So far we've just used soap and water for cleanup but have found the grooves on either side of the black band tend to retain lube and need extra scrubbing. Storage is simple and we use the black velvet pouch it came in to keep the finish protected from scratches.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Packaging is very simple and eco-friendly. The cock ring arrives in a small velvety pouch with a drawstring closure which is excellent for storage and preventing scratches on the polished finish. No instructions are provided which I think is problematic for inexperienced users of this type of toy. Do your homework online and read reviews of cock rings because there can be hazards with long term wear and pay attention to how to properly don this product. As for being discreet I would say that most people wouldn't immediately know what this toy is for but would figure it out because it's too small to be a bracelet. Avoid wearing this ring through airport scanners! Personally we store ours out of view snug in it's velvet pouch.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Experience

We both love the Black Band cock ring! In the week that we've had the pleasure of using this toy my husband has worn it for intercourse, masturbation, and just plain eye candy. I love the way his balls stay fully out in view even when they're chilly (our bedroom is always fairly cool) and can't resist sucking and playing with them. He has always had a fairly tight scrotum and often his testicles are tough to get at but not anymore! The bad boy image of the steel and black banding make his cock look delicious and help our lovemaking sessions feel that much more naughty. He also feels harder and lasts longer when he wears this ring so obviously I'm impressed. We'd had trouble previously with a smaller diameter cock ring just because of poor measurement but this 2" ring has proven to be a perfect fit. He has become a pro at getting slipped into this ring and a relaxing soak in the hot tub seems to make the process very simple because all his man parts are nicely relaxed and stretched out.
