All dressed up and nowhere to go – cock rings and A&E

The Healthy Penis

The polilshed stainless steel cock ringPenis rings can be excellent. While they used to be reserved for those who had problems maintaining an erection, in modern times they’re more commonly used by men to enhance their erection and pleasure during sex and masturbation.

Clearly, there are many different styles and materials you could choose from, but I thought it might be interesting to discuss metal cocks rings in particular and perhaps explore why they might not be the best option for you, at least not unless you have a proper measurement method and choose the right one.

I’ll share a little story with you, and although you may think this is an urban myth, is most certainly isn’t. There are plenty of stories like this out there, from the staff of emergency rooms around the world. This is just one that I know of…

A young lady decided to buy her man a metal cock ring on valentines day, along with everything else she had planned for an interesting and romantic night. Of course, not owning a dick herself, she knew nothing about measuring for a cock ring like this, as far as she was concerned they were all the same.

The young man, unaware of the risks and wanting to please his young lady friend, hurriedly put the ring on and they got down to business.

Of course, the ring she had bought him was too small. Although their night started off well, when it came to taking off the cock ring and moving on from foreplay to the main event, he couldn’t take the thing off.

They spent more than an hour trying to free his engorged manhood from the device, using lube, butter, anything they could find to get the ring from around his cock and balls. But nothing worked. After an hour of trying he reluctantly agreed that they needed to attend the emergency room, where nurses tried to remain professional and subdue their chuckles, and the maintenance man was eventually called in with bolt cutters, under medical supervision, removed the offending item.

Cock rings are a great toy, some of the rubber and silicone ones are so easy to use and offer a lot of great pleasure and additional interest. But when it comes to metal cock rings, you have to get the measurement right. This should be more about the aesthetic than the function, and a larger size is always preferable to a smaller one. Err on the side of caution when you’re spending money on a metal cock ring, especially if you are not experienced with them.

And never, ever, allow someone else to buy one for you and just hope that it’s the right size!
