The bang O - cock ring by The Screaming O - review by Brandon

Add resource

Let the banging begin!

The Bang O is a nice vibrating ring for those that may want to try a toy like this for the first time, or add some spice to your life! This ring is perfect for travel and is great because it can be reused and is waterproof. Be advised that the triple swinging action as described, might leave you scratching you head and begging for more. Personally, they did not add anything to the experience, but overall for the price, the Bang O might be something nice!
Waterproof, reusable, does not stretch out over time.
Weak vibrations and the weighted swinging balls really add no effect or stimulation.

When it comes to sex toys, you can really never go wrong with a vibrating penis ring. My wife and I absolutely love them because they are easy to use, clean, and great for travel. Not only that, but they take sex to a whole other level. Personally, if you have never tried a vibrating ring, you are truly missing out!

To begin here, the Bang O is a vibrating pleasure ring that was created with couples in mind. It was designed in such a way that once the batteries run out, you can replace them and reuse the product. Because of this, the Bang O is perfect for travel because at the end of a long stay, all you have to do is replace the batteries and you will be good to go on your next adventure!! This product would be great for any couple wanting to experiment with a vibrating ring. With that being said, this product did not personally blow me away.

Material / Texture

The Bang O mainly consists of a TPR silicone material, which should be thoroughly cleaned before and after each use. The Bang O ring I purchased is purple in color, but I believe clear is also available. The exterior of the ring is very soft to the touch and includes bulges and nodules for added stimulation. Extending from the bottom of the ring, are three weighted metal balls and the vibrator portion is constructed from plastic. Like mentioned, the entire product is surrounded by the TPR silicone which is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non porous, and phthlates free.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

As for the overall design, the Bang O looks like is was crafted very well and does not come across as being cheaply made. The main component of the ring is ultimately the vibrator. The vibe extends off the top portion of the ring, which includes the black on/off button at the end. To try to describe the size of the vibe, I would say that a gumball is pretty close in comparison. On the front surface of the vibe, are multiple ridges and nodules that are in the shape of a star, which are designed to add extra stimulation to the clitoris.

One thing that I sort of dislike about this product, is the fact that the normal battery life is about an hour. After that, you must replace the batteries. To do so, you can remove the plastic vibe from the silicone casing. Towards the end, there is a cap that can be twisted off to remove the batteries. The vibe takes 2 button style batteries, which if you are like me, might be a little difficult to remove. For some reason, they would not just come out as I felt that I was about to break the vibe trying to shake the batteries out. Once replaced, just put the vibe back in and you are set to bang away!

Throughout the ring portion of the Bang O, are 5 larger silicone spheres that are spaced out around the ring. Personally, these really have no significance, other than increasing the visual aspect/ varied thickness of the ring. The ring un stretched, is about ¾ inches in diameter, but can be stretched to about 2 ½ inches. Because of this, the Bang O is designed to fit you perfectly, more matter what size. For me, with the cock ring in place, it fits very snug and did not seem to stretch out or become loose over multiple uses.

Now the fun part, or better yet, what should have been fun? The reason why I state it that way is because I really was disappointed with the hanging weighted balls. I will discuss that a little later in the next section why I feel that way, but for now I will strictly speak about design. At the end of the ring is where you will find the three weighted balls. As you move away from the ring, they increase in size. This is designed in a way that with movement, the balls are supposed to sway back and forth, adding a unique vibrating experience.
    • Adjustable
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles

Functions / Performance / Controls

Now for the meat and potatoes portion of the review!

The vibrating ring is very simple to use. Once in place around your penis, you can turn the vibe on and off by the same button located at the top of the toy. When speaking about overall power, this vibe is pretty weak. My wife and I own several other vibrating rings that deliver a more powerful punch. With that being said, the vibrations are not too weak to deliver no added stimulation and if you are worried about sound, this vibe is virtually silent. I am sure you will still enjoy the vibrations from this product, but the one speed, might leave you begging for more. That was definitely the case for my wife. But one plus, this toy is WATERPROOF!

Like I mentioned earlier, the ring portion fit very well. I was very pleased over multiple uses, as the material did not seem to stretch out over time. It still fits like the first time my wife and I decided to give this vibrating ring a try. That’s a plus, because I cannot honestly say that about all the rings we have tried.

Now for the biggest disappoint, the swinging weights. Considering the vibrations aren’t that strong to begin with; by the time they travel the length of the toy, they dissipate to basically nothing. For us at least, the weighted balls really did nothing and we really couldn’t even tell they were there. I did not really feel them vibrate, so for me, they were very underwhelming and ineffective. To be honest, I thought about just cutting them off of the ring, as they are more in the way than anything.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to use
    • Not very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

The Bang O is very is to care for. Since it is waterproof, before and after each use just clean with warm water and mild soap or antibacterial toy cleaner.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This product arrived in a very typical packaging style that included plastic that was connected to a cardboard backing. The package is designed nicely and includes nice graphics and easy to understand instructions.
    • Minimal

Personal comments

Please only use water based lubes with this product. Because of its silicone material, all other types of lubes will harm the product!
Follow-up commentary
This vibrating ring isn't really something that I would recommend. I actually tossed it out. I would suggest skipping this item altogether.

    Good review--sorry about the lack of vibrations! I usually replace the disposable bullets with a good one from EF.
