Synopsis: A metal ring worn to enhance erection and visual appeal of the male genitalia.
Freddy’s Review: Ever since I first tried the Mr. Whiskers Stretch Pleasure Rings, I’ve been completely sold on wearing a cock ring, utilizing different ones often (about a third of the time, by my estimation). Not only do they help maintain a hard erection by preventing the escape of blood from the penis during prolonged love making, but they feel and look sexy as well. Very few things turn Eddy on sexually as much as the site of my clean shaven “love zone” neatly complimented by a ring. It just works for her. Indeed, I’m not afraid to admit that I find it attractive myself and a little self admiration in front of the mirror just prior to sexual activity can do wonders for the psyche!
All of this led up to our annual pilgrimage to the Adult Video News show, where we hunted – vulture like – for interesting and cool items to review and post on this website (yes, it’s a tough job, but SOMEONE has to do it). Tucked well in the back of the main hall was a small booth, comprised of nothing more than a table covered with a black cloth, showing off a collection of gorgeous metal rings. And, though we knew their purpose immediately, we had never considered wearing something like this due to a perception problem on our part that they could be dangerous (when in fact they are actually safer than the silicone rings). The company, Gear Essentials, is actually an off shoot of a metal fabrication company which manufactures Braille (no, really!) and saw an opportunity to introduce extremely high quality standards to the adult market, specifically to the gay sector. Company co-founder Mike Murphy, who along with founder Dwight, explained to us that it’s quite common for gay men to wear cock rings as they would any other piece of jewelry and he wished to introduce this practice to the heterosexual market. When he offered one of the rings to us, we just couldn’t resist.
The first thing we had to do was measure for a proper fit, which is done by taking a strip of paper a quarter inch wide and wrapping it from the base of the shaft (where it connects to your body), down behind the balls (under your scrotum) and back up again so that the paper meets. You then measure the length of the paper and divide by three, giving you the proper diameter. In my case, a quick trip to the men’s lounge confirmed the least large model would suffice (as it will for MOST men, thank you!). The only other choice was the finish, available in a shiny mirror or brushed metal, the latter of which was my choice. Anxiously, I ran back to the lounge to put it on, assured by Mr. Murphy that it could be worn comfortably for hours without a problem.
To put it on, it is necessary to be flaccid and you first tuck each testicle through the ring (one at a time), then push the head of the penis through the top, as if you’re threading a needle. Holding the head with one hand, you then pull the ring back toward you until it is against your body, where it should feel comfortable and secure. Make sure that your testicles are comfortably in front of the ring and make minor adjustments until the ring feels as natural as possible. For me, it was no problem and I was “ringed” in no time.

To say I felt sexy wearing the Titan must be comparable to how a woman feels wearing sexy underwear (or maybe even a nipple or clit piercing?). No one other than myself knew it was there, but the mere fact that I knew was, well, really COOL. Eddy didn’t know I had put it on until things heated up after the show back in our hotel room, and she loved the way it looked as she brought things to attention in no time. Function-wise, it worked just like the Mega Stretch EXCEPT without the constant squeezing; wrap a rubber band tightly around your finger and compare the results to wearing a wedding ring and you’ll see what I mean. Even after sex, I didn’t want to take it off, though when I did it was effortless to do so. Cleaning is as simple as soap and water and the stainless steel will retain its beauty for several lifetimes.
In conclusion, this is a GREAT product. Gear makes five other styles, which get progressively heavier and wider, which should address most personal tastes. All of their rings also come in three different sizes to accommodate virtually any size man. I’ve never been one for wearing jewelry (I don’t even wear a watch), but this is one hunk of metal that now adorns my body often and with pleasure!
