A Thinner Ring Would Have Been Less Awkward

Cock rings have a bit of a learning curve. This is my first 'shaft and balls' ring and I'm still not completely comfortable with its use. If you're a beginner or in need of a 2" ring, this is a durable, low-maintenance product, and will be fantastic for you. ...I'm just not sure if it's for me...

extremely useful review


The Beginner Cock Ring is designed for cock ring newbies (like me!) to learn and get used to a cock ring. Rings are designed to prolong ejaculation and make you last longer, and it works.

However, in my case, I lasted longer because it looks and felt awkward. My head wasn't "in the game" enough to get off, so I lasted longer than normal.

It travels well, but is recommended for the bedroom only. With shower/tub play, silicone lubricant is preferred. Since the ring is silicone, you can't mix it with the silicone lube.

Material / Texture

The ring is a smooth, seamless silicone. It is completely non-porous, and can be sterilized with boiling water, or by putting it (top rack) in your dishwasher.

One thing to note about silicone, if you're a hairy dude it will tug. Silicone likes to pull hair for some reason, and can become a minor nuisance.

Again, with silicone products, do NOT mix with silicone lube. It will ruin the toy, and a toy's value is based on how long it lasts.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Sticky / pulls hair

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

As with most cock rings, it is shaped like, well, a ring.

The ring is two inches in diameter and is slightly stretchy. It will give a little when putting on, but not enough to negate the point. The fit is snug, but not too bad (since it's a beginner product). The more advanced sizes are smaller, so if you have a small penis or have used cock rings before, order accordingly.

This cock ring is designed to fit over both the shaft and testicles. If you're new to cock rings, read the instructions, GO SLOW, and get used to the feel before attempting use during intercourse.

Care and Maintenance

With a silicone product, care is simple. To sterilize, you can clean in boiling water, load onto the top rack of your dishwasher, or just use a good antibacterial toy cleaner.

When storing the product, keep in a hair-and-dust-free environment. Silicone attracts dirt and dust, so it may be good to give it a quick wipe-down before use.

My scrotum isn't as elastic as this toy is designed for, or else it was a little cold in the bedroom. The ring is thick, and the high-profile made it difficult for my balls to relax and get into a position where they weren't awkwardly against my shaft.

During intercourse, I could feel my testes hitting my partner more than usual. It was a bit of a distraction, which helped me prolong sex (since my head wan't in the game). The design is to prolong sex, so in a way, it worked...
Follow-up commentary
There is a bit of a learning curve to your first cock ring, and I think I'm getting more and more used to this product. I'd still like a lower-profile ring, but this bad boy does the trick!
