Stay hard

This is a nice set of two silicone cock rings that are smooth, stretchy and texture free. Between the two, they should fit most men comfortably. They are fairly basic, but functional and inexpensive. Whatever your need for a cock ring, this set should do the trick.
Silicone, stretchy, two rings, affordable
Only two color options

Nick Hawk stay hard rings can be worn for masturbation, during sex, for aesthetics, in the shower or wherever one might want to don a cock ring. It can also help enhance your package under clothing. Cock rings are generally worn (as the name implies) to keep an erection, to enhance an erection or for purely cosmetic reasons. It also gives your balls a little lift and keeps them from retracting inside you during orgasm. Some say they delay orgasm as a result, but that was never my findings. They do keep your balls from receding though.

If nothing else, they provide a different sensation that is pleasurable.

Material / Texture

These rings are made of 100% silicone. They are soft and stretchy. Silicone is a 10 on the EF safety scale. There are no seams and the material is smooth with a matte sheen. The rings are spongy and quite stretchy.

They are purple in color, but also come in black and come in two different sizes to accommodate most. There is no smell and I presume no taste.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Stretchy

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The diameters or the rings are:

1 3/4" internal opening, 2 1/2" external diameter
1 1/2" internal opening, 2 1/4" external diameter

Honestly, they were much easier to stretch than I imagined. I easily stretched them to about 4" on the large ring and a little less on the smaller. The product page specs are deceiving.

They are designed to be worn around your cock and balls, though if you are really gifted, you could wear one just around your shaft if it fits. The small one fit on my shaft when erect, but I wouldn't say it was tight enough to do anything functional, but fit securely enough to stay in place, but it would be mainly a cosmetic option.

The rings are a band shape, meaning circular in shape and 3/8" thick. Some cock rings are more of a flat band like a wide rubber band.

Between the 2 rings, most men should find one that fits comfortably. It is a good idea to limit use of cock rings to 30 min or if your skin turns blue/purple to prevent any damage, assuming a snug fit. If the fit is loose, then it's OK to wear them longer, just keep an eye on things.

    • Adjustable
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Will fit most men

Functions / Performance / Controls

I found the large band easy to get on and comfortable to wear. It gave a nice lift flaccid, while not being too tight. Getting it off is a bit trickier, because I have cropped hair and it's easy to grab hair when removing and/or cause slight pain to the testicles, if you don't get a good enough grip. I find it difficult to get my fingers underneath the band to remove it, without getting hair caught (and I'm not really hairy). Either you brush them harder than you want, or worse, snap it like a rubber band. Ouch!

Unlike some other cock rings, this felt comfortable to wear longer-term if not erect. Not overly constricting. Just a nice lift to your balls that you can even feel with your underwear and pants on.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to use
    • Hard to put on / take off

Care and Maintenance

The rings are simple to store and clean. Just wash with mild soap and water and towel dry. Do not leave them sitting in direct sunlight for extended periods or exposed to extreme heat. Since they are silicone, you could boil them for 3 min, soak in a 10% bleach solution or use toy cleaner to sterilize after use, if you really felt the need, but since they are not inserted, I'd just stick to soap and water.

They are waterproof so feel free to wear in the shower or tub.
    • Easy to clean

Personal comments

If you are not shaved as I am, you have to be careful about pinching/pulling your pubic hair. You can use some water based lube, but just stay away from using silicone lube to protect your ring from damage. Getting your fingers under the ring to remove it can be a hairy(pun intended) procedure. More importantly getting a good grip on it is crucial, so you don't accidentally slip and give your sensitive jewels a rubber band like snap-ouch!

These were a nice surprise. I wasn't super enthusiastic about getting them initially, but they turned out to be a nice little set that I think I will enjoy using.
Follow-up commentary
I still use from time to time and they are durable. Only the large size is useful for me. Good quality item.
