Not Our Cup of Tea...

We are used to toys that stimulate as well as help “hold things up”, so this was a bit of a disappointment. The little balls were not felt by either of us during use! For a simple, no frills, cock ring in two length, it was decent though.
Two sizes
Little to no stimulation

extremely useful review


This set of tiered enhancer rings are meant for holding an erection longer and, in theory, makes the encased penis harder. This is designed for a male user, but I see it being most useful in a couple’s situation. Since there are two rings in this set, it is ideal for someone looking for variety, or someone who is just not sure what they are looking for yet in a cock ring.

Material / Texture

The rings are made from TPE, a rubber polymer blend. However, on this site it lists that it is made from TPR Silicone (only a slight difference from what I was able to find about the two rubber compounds). The TPE is a mildly stretchy material. The smaller ring, with only two tiers, easily stretches, while the taller, four-tiered ring is considerably less stretchy!

There is a slight “rubber” smell to the rings (even after washing), but you have to have them extremely close to your nose to even notice it! As far as texture goes, once in place neither of us noticed the little balls around each ring. They could have been left off for all we cared, they did nothing for us.
    • Extremely light odor
    • Stretchy

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The idea of the design was interesting. We did not own any non-vibrating cock rings prior to getting this set, so it was a worthy experiment to try. We found it just didn’t stimulate either of us enough to expand the “collection” beyond this set though. We expected the little balls in the design to be felt, they were not.

Unstretched, these rings are very small looking! They are only one inch across! Height wise, the smaller ring is three-quarters of an inch tall and the larger measures twice as tall at one and a half inches. When stretched, as much as I could muster strength to do the stretching, the two-tiered ring easily stretched to 4 inches and the four-tiered ring only to three inches. The four-tiered ring is a bit of a fight though! For an average sized user, this would be perfect. For the slightly larger user it can be a challenge, but can still be used!

When attempting to put the four-tiered ring on for use, it was most definitely a two-person job! We could have used a shoe horn type item to help remove fingers once it was in place, it was a bit of a challenge! Removing this after use was much easier, a little soap and water and it slid right off!
    • May be too tight for some
    • Only fits on penis shaft
    • Tight fitting

Care and Maintenance

This is a very easy toy to keep clean! Mild soap and water will do the trick. We usually follow that with a spritz of our favorite toy cleaner, just to make sure it is “extra clean”. Either one alone would be fine for keeping this clean!

The TPE collects hair and dust like you wouldn’t believe (unless you already have a TPE toy stuffed away)! I suggest keeping these in the packaging or in a container that is solely used for these rings.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The rings come in a clear, plastic blister pack. It is easy to open (hinged at the bottom of the packaging), and hard enough to last quite a while as long as you are careful opening it. It easily keeps these rings apart and keeps them safe from falling “victim” to accidental melting by contact with toys that don’t play well together!
    • Good for storage


We found these to really lack what we look for in a sex toy: stimulation! The rings are great for helping to hold an erection beyond the “finish line” for my male partner, but beyond that, it just wasn’t very great in use. Having to struggle to get the rings on in the first place certainly took away from the “moment”! The smaller, two-tiered ring is easier to get on and wasn’t such the struggle, but the four-tiered ring will be left in the package from now on!

My partner liked the design for “clean-up” purposes. He said it “squeegeed everything right off”! The gaps between each ring collected fluids as well. The ring left indents that appeared to be faint bruises after we were done. The packaging warns to not use this product for more than 30 minutes and to leave it off for at least 60 minutes between uses. He used this for less than 15 minutes.
Follow-up commentary
These have proved to just be too hard to use and have gone into the drawer of sex toys/items we don't use. If we are using a cock ring, it needs to either vibrate or be easy to remove; this does neither of those things.

    Good review! Sorry these didn't work out. We have something similar that we hardly ever use as well.
  • Gunsmoke
    I bought these and they didn't work for us either.
  • Pegaholics
    I guess we'll skip this one
  • Breas
    I'm surprised the balls didn't add any extra stimulation.. That really sucks !
    Thanks though for the review hun!
  • Bignuf
    Thanks for the review, but folks missed what these little balls ARE good for....I put this longer one on my hubby before he penetrated me anally and while I am normally tight back there, this added a little sensation that was just right...not too much...but certainly "extra", when he was "in" all the way. Thus, we LIKED them.
