When to put a cock ring on?

Hi this is my first post on here so sorry if this has been asked before.I have ordered a cock ring from LH but i have never used one before and i was wandering when i should put it on?It might say on the packet but as i havent got it yet i dont know.Thanks for any advice.

i usually put mine on when my penis is erect. n i think thats the general idea.

Ok thanks mate.I wasnt sure because i read in one post where a guy put it on semi erect.

huh, apparently i'm wrong according to the guide on here...

Thanks for the link mate.Very helpfull info there.

but yet this 1 says you have to be hard... even i'm confused now. must depend on whether its a jelly 1 like the vibrating 1s or the simple harder ring type.

Hmm i am confused aswell now.The ones i have ordered are the 3 Basic set for £4:99.They are the rubber siliconey ones.I thought i would give them a go.

i would go with the 1st link with those 1s i think. theres also a measuring guide to help pick the right size ring...

Depends on whether the ring is stretchy or solid. If it's a solid metal ring, it has to go on before you get hard. My advice is to always err on the larger side with metal rings!

For stretchy ones or leather ones with snaps, you can slip them on any time. There's nothing dignified about stretching a rubber ring over yer tackle, so snaps or poppers are a good thing for the heat of the moment.

I've only ever used stretchy ones and I put them on when I'm hard - to keep all that hardness! You can still get hard with one on though, so it shouldn't matter if you put a stretchy cock ring on when you're not at your peak.

depends how tight they are. I bought a Lelo tor vibrating one but not atretchy so goes on wen i soft

I find the lasso type rings (such as the 'Big Daddy' one they sell here at LH) are the best. They are less stretchy than the 'one size fits all' rings and they can be set so that they don't put much of a crimp in the blood-flow when you are flaccid but apply the right amount of restriction once you get hard. You can put them on before you get hard and can use them in front or behind the balls.

My only reservation about rings is that, while they help enhance girth and hardness, they seem to reduce the length. I thought I was just imagining this but my wife quite independently came to the same conclusion. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that quite a bit of the erectile structure is inside our bodies and so is outside the restriction of the ring. We have rather given up on rings recently having found that Kegel exercises (assisted by an EMS unit) give the same sort of girth and hardness enhancements as the ring without any down side.
