Platinum silicone cock ring double pack by Doc Johnson - review by aliceinthehole

Multi-purpose, But Tight!

I love that these rings are made of high-quality silicone, I really do. I just wish they weren't so darn tight! My boy ended up with bruises from the smaller ring, but the ring for the scrotum does get some use when we play. If you're on the small side or enjoy extreme restriction, try these out! Otherwise, keep searching.
Two rings included in kit
Too tight for most wearers

extremely useful review


Cock rings are often used to create or increase erection size and strength, prolong orgasm, or even incite orgasm. This set contains two rings: a smaller ring for use around the base of the cock and a larger one that can be placed over the shaft and behind the balls. The purpose is to restrict blood flow to the area, allowing the penis to fill with blood.

This cock ring set by Doc Johnson is potentially quite versatile, but we found it to be pretty tight even for my average-sized partner. The good thing is the rings are silicone, so you can sterilize them and use them with however many partners you want without worrying about spreading disease. Also, the rings are waterproof, for ease of use in a shower, hot tub or even the sea. Also, this high-quality silicone will not melt when put to use with silicone lube, so you can avoid the horrible feeling that comes with underwater sex when silicone lube isn't present!

For those into temperature play, these rings can be heated or cooled for an extra interesting effect. For gents with girth around 1.2" or less, or those who really enjoy tight cock rings, this set is perfect. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Material / Texture

These rings are made of a high-quality silicone which is tasteless, odorless, never sticky, nonporous, body safe, latex and phthalate free, and a mass of other wonderful things. It also comes in this glorious platinum color that I picked up, which is full of dark and light grey swirls and shimmery silver sparkles. It's decorative and pretty without being feminine - the dark grey color maintains its masculinity.

This particular silicone, on top of being sterilizable, is about a 6 on the scale of firmness, 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest silicone I've ever felt. This is part of the issue with these rings.

If they were made of a slightly softer silicone they could allow for more stretch, accommodating a greater range of cock girths. As it is, the silicone is so firm that it doesn't stretch easily at all. It constricts too strongly and can cause pain after only 5 minutes of use on a cock of 1.25" or larger.

Also, silicone has a tendency to pull pubic hair a bit. Not nearly as bad as TPR or TPE materials, but still, a bit of hair-tugging does happen with this kit.

The texture of this silicone is satiny smooth. It won't hold lube in place or provide extra stimulation of the clitoris if it comes into contact with it during intercourse.

If you'd like a new sensation, place these in warm water or in the fridge for a while before use. Silicone conducts heat and cold quite well, so you'll want to test these on the inside of your wrist before using them. Burns on the genitals is no fun!

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

These rings are really too small for most men. The cock/ball ring is fine for wear around the scrotum or around the cock and balls, but is generally too tight for my average-sized partner. The smaller one is really too small for use on his 1.25" penis width. It's really too bad!

To make matters worse, these rings feature an odd thing - width. Most rings are very thin, about 1cm max, but these are a full 5/8" wide, meaning they act even tighter than they otherwise would. For my boy, this just wasn't a turn on at all. It downright hurt.

Waterbased lube will help these slide onto the cock easier. Apply some to the entirety of the ring and the genitals before sliding the rings over shaft and/or balls.

Okay, so here you can see the smaller ring stretched to only 1.75" one way. A cock is round, unlike my basically 2D fingers here, and therefore would experience even more resistance than I did. My fingers were uncomfortable in this picture. It felt like having a thick, tight rubber band around my fingers. Do not like! My boy didn't either.

The same here with the cock/ball ring, stretched to a mere 4" and only in one direction. My fingers were pretty squished here, which is of course the point of a cock ring, but when you completely cut off circulation, it's not only incredibly uncomfortable, but dangerous.

Now, I'm a small girl, at 5'6" and 125 lbs, and only 2" diameter to my wrists. This was really painful! Just showing you, there's not much give to these. See all my veins popping out?

Functions / Performance / Controls

No matter how many times we try to use these, the smaller ring just hurts. My boy does get bruises very easily, but every time he uses the small ring he gets a horrible bruise. It never lasts more than a couple minutes before he has to take it off - it's too painful! The larger ring, however, comes in handy for encircling the balls for a beautiful restricting feeling. My boy quite likes it.

Care and Maintenance

These can be thrown in the dishwasher or boiled for ten minutes, or placed in a 10% bleach solution to clean them. I recommend wrapping in tissue paper before storing either in a small bag or loose in your toy box with the rest of your things.


The package for these was minimal, plastic, with a paper insert outlining the toys' features. No instructions on care or use were included. Still, the package is great for storage, as it features custom cut-outs for the rings and is easily recloseable. The package remains securely shut until time for use.

Personal comments

You can check out the Doc Johnson 30-day warranty here. Their website also has alot of cool information on their products.


We tried these platinum-cured silicone rings many times in conjunction with silicone lube, and no melting-action occurred at all! Good news! So if you love silicone lube, don't worry about an adverse reaction here.
