How To Measure For a Cock Ring

How To Measure For a Cock Ring

Arm yourself with a tape measure. Make sure you’re hard before you start to take any measurements. Wrap the tape measure around the base of your penis to establish the circumference (for a cock & ball ring, measure around the penis and the testicles). Divide this number by 3.142 (Pi) to obtain your required cock ring diameter. If the result is an odd number always opt for the larger size.

Cock Ring Safety & Warnings

It is important to use common sense when using a cock ring. Spending too long with a cock ring on can damage the capillaries and bruise the penis, leaving you sore for a few days. We think it's wise, especially if you are first experimenting with cock rings, to remove it after 5 to 10 minutes to let your blood flow normally.



  1. Avoid any rings that cannot be quickly removed.
  2. Do not use a cock ring if it is too tight. A cock ring should only slightly increase the size of a man's erection. If there is excessive swelling, then the fit of a cock ring is too tight.
  3. If you find swelling, pain or if the genitals feel cold, take the cock ring off immediately.
  1. Do not use them for more than 30 minutes at a time.
  2. Do not use cockrings if you have the following health conditions: a blood clotting disorder, peripheral vascular disease or a nerve disease.
  3. Do not use cockrings if you are taking a blood thinning medication.
