The Running Bull is a seven-function, vibrating cock ring. It’s designed to be worn around the base of a man's penis. It restricts blood flow, and allows for a harder and longer lasting erection. It also delays orgasm, leading to intensified orgasmic sensations. It is made by Evolved Novelties and sold under their Zero Tolerance Cross Bones line. The Running Bull gives you a few different options for wear and use. It is waterproof, has multiple settings, and you can insert the bullet that it comes with in two different positions. You can even add a second, if you feel inclined to do so. The Running Bull can be used by a man during solo masturbation or during intercourse with a partner. The bullet that comes with the Running Bull can be taken out and used by itself to stimulate erogenous zones, too.

Material / Texture

The Running Bull is made from two different materials. The ring is made from TPR while the removable bullet is made from plastic. The TPR that the ring is made from rates a 7 on EdenFantasys' safety scale. It is somewhat porous and cannot be completely sanitized. However, the TPR is still hypo-allergenic, latex and phthalate free. The bullet's plastic material rates an 8 on EdenFantasys' safety scale. It is non-porous and phthalate-free. The TPR ring is a very stretchy material. This allows for a variety of different sized individuals to be able to use this cock ring. The TPR does have a slight rubbery smell to it, although not very noticeable unless you stick it up to your nose and inhale. I did not find it distracting.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The Running Bull is stylized to look like a bull ring. It has two spaces where the vibrating bullet can be placed; one which places the bullet parallel to the penis, and one which places the bullet perpendicular to the shaft of the penis. The Running Bull comes with one bullet included, but with the design of the cock ring, you can use it with a second bullet in place for a cross bullet system. That’s the idea behind the Cross Bones line from Zero Tolerance. You always have the option to place a second bullet in the ring and use vibrating bullets in both spots at the same time, just like the Double Running Bull. The two bullet positions give you six different configurations of use overall, but two of those do require a second bullet to be used. The perpendicular bullet placement will put the hard bullet in direct contact with the penis. This allows for the man to feel the vibrations more intensely than he would with the bullet in the other configuration.

Different positions

On the ring there are two half inch 'horns' that stick out from the ring. When the bullet is in place and vibrating, these will wiggle and provide added stimulation to either the clitoris or perineum area of your partner, depending on how you are wearing the ring. The ring also has a 'bull ring' attached to the cock ring. I imagine that this is supposed to resemble a ring that a bull would have in its nose, just like the little horns on the ring are stylized to mimic the bull's horns, thus giving this ring its name of the “Running Bull”. The packaging that the ring came in suggests that you could use the bull ring as a ball strap. It does stretch a fair amount, just like the ring does. If you feel inclined to try, you could gently slip your boys through the bull ring and use it as a ball strap. My partner had no desire to try this, so I cannot comment on how well this works.

The TPR that the ring is made from can be stretched from a diameter of 1.5 inches to a diameter of 2.5 inches, depending on your anatomy. Overall the ring itself is about 3/4 of an inch thick with the 1/2 inch horns sticking out from it. The bullet that comes with the Running Bull is about 2.75 inches long. Compared to the EdenFantasys' cock ring, the Running Bull seems to be more bulky than the Eden ring, although having a similar diameter. Also, the bullet of the Running Bull is much more bulky than the bullet that comes with the Eden ring. The batteries in the Running Bull can be changed out and it can be re-used time and time again, whereas the Eden ring is more of a one-time use, disposable ring.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet included with the Running Bull is powered by three LR44 watch batteries. Thankfully, these were included. The bullet is waterproof, and has seven functions. The functions are three steady vibrations: low, medium, and high. There are also four different patterned vibrations. I find that the bullet is pretty powerful, and whisper quiet. I find this an attractive quality in a vibrating cock ring. I am not distracted by a loud buzzing noise coming from my partner's loins. To turn the bullet on and off, there is a small button on the base of the bullet. Pressing it down will turn it on. Pressing it again will change it to a different vibration setting. Holding down the button will turn it off. It is very easy to operate when the bullet is in place and the ring is around the penis. I do suggest using a tiny bit of lube for placing the bullet in the ring, as it will make it easier slide it into place. Again, with the materials that the Running Bull are made out of, you are free to use either water-based or silicone-based lube.
    • Easy to use
    • Strong vibrations

Care and Maintenance

When it comes to cleaning the Running Bull, you have different options for the different components of the set. The plastic bullet is waterproof, so you can run it under some warm water and wash with anti-bacterial soap. You could also wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol. The TPR can only be washed with warm water and soap, or you could use your favorite toy cleaner. You cannot boil the TPR to disinfect it. Both the bullet and the ring are compatible with either water-based or silicone based lubes, so you are free to use whatever suits your fancy. Due to the soft nature of TPR, I generally like to store it separate from any other toys I own for fear of any melting together.
    • Easy to clean


The Running Bull came in a cardboard and plastic blister pack. It had a red and black design on it, with the Cross Bones and Zero Tolerance names on it. It also had the phrase "arm your manhood." My partner found this very amusing. I was very pleased that the back of the package had illustrations on it. It showed the different ways in which you could configure the bullets as well as what kind of stimulation that set up was best for. This packaging was far from discreet. As all my EdenFantasys orders come, this one was shipped inside of a plain cardboard box. Nosey neighbors and mailmen were none the wiser as to its contents. The packaging was minimal and not something that I will keep on hand for storage after use.

    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative

Personal comments

I find the cross bullet system very interesting. My partner has always said that he wasn't too interested in cock rings, as they did not do much for him. He felt that wearing one was more for my benefit as I would get the vibrations against my clit during sex. This system allows for him to be able to feel the vibrations of the bullet in the ring more effectively than other designs where the bullet does not come in contact with the penis directly. I feel we both get something out of the use of this toy. I have used an extra bullet I have on hand from another toy to be able to use two bullets at the same time in the Running Bull.

    Thanks for reading my review everyone! @Zombirella with the bullet in between the horns they are not long enough to be felt, and that how we've mainly used this so far, with two bullets in place.
