6 Myths About Cock Rings No, They Won't Make Your Penis Fall Off!

Most of the time, sex myths are just that – imaginary tales that have no basis in reality. And that’s the case when it comes to myths about cock rings in Tampa

A constrictive removable ring that’s worn around the base of the penis or scrotum, cock rings help pump blood to the penis and trap it there, thus helping the wearer maintain his erection. For men with erectile dysfunction, cock rings trap blood inside the shaft of the penis, which helps to stay harder longer.

Nonetheless, myths about cock rings are still widespread. Many people think they are just for old men with issues, or they just don’t see the need for it. That’s why we decided to debunk 6 common myths associated with cock rings in Tampa.

Myth 1: Cock rings are only for old guys with ED.

Many men appear to believe that if they don’t have problems getting an erection, they don’t need a cock ring. Even if you don’t have erectile dysfunction, cock rings can make your erection harder and last longer, which is a win-win situation for you and your partner. You might not technically need a cock ring, but it can make you better in bed.

Myth 2: Cock rings are unnecessary and annoying.

There’s a perception that cock rings are extraneous in bed, or that they don’t actually do much to enhance your partner’s pleasure. You might think that strapping on a mini vibrating toy is distracting, but many cock rings come with a vibrator extension that can be up to three inches long. These are great for your female partners, because it means you can provide them with clitoral stimulation during intercourse. What’s more, if you turn the vibrator extender away from her clit so it sits at the top of your scrotum, you too can benefit from the vibration.

Myth 3: Cock rings are just for kinky guys.

It’s true that cock rings are popular in both the BDSM and LGBT communities, which has led to the belief that the toys are just for “kinky, fetish-y guys and gay men, but more Average Joes are buying cock rings than ever before as well. The perception of cock rings is definitely shifting. In fact, we sell more cock rings to straight men than to the gay market. It’s just a sign of the times – people are more open about sex and sex toys and it’s not as taboo as it used to be.

Myth 4: Cock rings will get snagged on your pubic hairs.

If you buy a ring that has a soft silicon coating (or even just purchase a metal ring) it’s unlikely that’ll happen. Most of them are so smooth that they don’t grab the hair, and it’s designed with a flat-edge so it doesn’t roll up. Or you could just keep it trim and smooth down there.

Myth 5: Cock rings can get stuck on your penis.

It’s possible, but it’s unlikely. A cock ring can get stuck if you put on a smaller size when you are flaccid and it gets too tight when you are erect, which is why it’s super important to find a size that works for you. It’s helpful to do a little math first – some cock rings have a size on them, which is usually in diameter. If that sounds like too much work, you can also try an adjustable ring. We recommend adjustable rings for beginners or anyone who has a fear of cock rings.

Myth 6: Cock rings will injure your skin.

While this is highly unlikely, it’s not impossible – it should go without saying, but don’t get all MacGyver with your sex toys. Makeshift cock rings are a guaranteed trip to the ER! Stick to buying legitimate cock rings at reputable sex shops such as ours.
