Bit of a disappointment

This product was a letdown because of the lack of instructions with it, the stiffness of the head, the size of the ring itself, and the loose packaging. However it wasn't a total loss due to the power of the mini-vibe.
Powerful vibe, batteries included
Large ring, does not stretch, rigid
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is just a simple cock ring with a removable bullet vibe and small nubs. It can be used as a cock ring, an O-ring, or you can remove the vibe and use that on it's own. The mini-vibe is pretty powerful, considering how small it is. Of course, that means that the batteries it requires are also extremely small.

Material / Texture

This is made of body-safe silicone and is meant for mutual use, so it can be shared. It should not be used with silicone lubricants, though, because they can make the toy break down. The good news is that it doesn't have a very strong smell -- if it has any smell at all. I certainly could not smell anything, at least. It's a very smooth toy, but it's not very soft. This means that the nubs on the tip can be irritating rather than pleasurable -- or at least that's how it felt for me.

I didn't really enjoy it because of the rigidity. The ring was also a little too girth-y for my partner, and the added head on the ring (the part with the nubs) was too big for my anatomy. It actually hurt a little bit. The added vibrations from the bullet made it a little worse.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The ring has an attached head with a place to slip the bullet into. The head has tiny nibs on the front. Unfortunately, it's not adjustable, so the ring has a fixed size -- as does the head. The ring size is rather large. I'm not sure if it's meant to go over the shaft and testicles, because it does not stretch very much, but fits very loosely when put over only the shaft.

It turned out to be uncomfortable for me because it was too big to rest comfortably on my clitoris.
    • Fitted - must measure before purchase

Functions / Performance / Controls

There is a tiny bullet vibe that can be removed from the ring. Honestly, this is my favorite part of the ring; the bullet is very powerful for its size. I like powerful vibes; so, even though I don't like the ring, I can still make some use of it.

The mini-vibe's only drawback for me was the super-small button to turn it on or off. You have to press it very hard for it to stay on. The vibe came with two sets of batteries, which are very, very tiny. So, you need to be careful when putting them in, because they are easy to drop and lose.
    • Strong vibrations

Care and Maintenance

This toy is pretty small and simple. If you remove the bullet vibe, you should be able to easily clean the whole thing with soap and warm water, or with a silicone-safe toy cleaner. Don't store it near any other silicone toys to avoid any mishaps. Since it's a ring, it should be easy to tuck it away in a drawer or a toy bag.

    • Easy to store


I didn't find any instructions in the packaging, despite looking. It's just kind of rattling around in a box. When I opened it, I thought the vibe was missing because it was under the ring. I was expecting for some kind of packaging that would hold it in place, but there was none. I think that's kind of weird, because while the ring itself might be okay bouncing around as it's it's made of silicone, the vibe is not. I think that allowing it to freely bounce around in the box during shipment could possibly cause damage.

Upon searching in the box, there wasn't even some kind of paper slip with instructions, or what kind of batteries they are -- which was frustrating.

Personal comments

I was excited to get a vibrating cock ring as an assignment, because I've wanted to try one for a while. I had been looking for one to try before this.

I was disappointed with this one. It's too big, too rigid, and it didn't bring any enjoyment.

I haven't lost hope in using a vibrating cock ring, though; this one just isn't for me.


My partner looked at it and said it looked too girth-y for him. We tried it anyway, and he was right. He's not abnormally tiny; he is average-sized, and it was too big. This makes me wonder how big the manufacturers expect the user to be.
Follow-up commentary
Unfortunately, even though I did initially like the strength of the bullet itself minus the ring, I haven't gone back to this at all. I'm not sure if I will either. At some point, I might give it another go with just the bullet but for now, it's kind of just sitting to the side.

    Thanks for the review. The product info says the unstretched diameter of this is 2", which is way bigger than the average man. I'll bet it would work well for a guy that size.
  • GONE!
    Great review!
