Product Review: Wireless Vibrating Cinch Ring

thumbnailSynopsis: A combination pleasure ring and tiny vibrator sent us both into orbit!

Our Reviews: Eddy – LOOOOOVE IT!  There just aren’t enough expressions that could possible cover this ultimate toy product.  The Wireless Vibrating Cinch Ring (formerly known as the Deluxe Techo Lover) by California Exotic Novelties is one little powerful toy. 

Basically, it is a silicone jelly cock ring that is combined with a wireless vibrator. The tiny vibe operates using a single watch battery and slips into a snug channel in the jelly ring. A plug seals the motor and acts to further reduce sound levels, making the noise level almost non-existent. The Techno Lover is so quiet, in fact, that you’ll feel completely confident that the only noises possibly waking up your kids will by your screams of ecstasy. The surrounding ring has tiny nubs to enhance the clitoral stimulation. Continue reading

Product Review: The Screaming O Primo Tux Silicone Vibe Ring

screamingotux

Synopsis: A soft, stretchy silicone cock ring with a 3-speed vibrating bullet located at the top.

Our Review: It’s been awhile since we’ve tried out a new cock ring; not because they have fallen out of favor, but rather we haven’t seen much improvement in design and function in the years since they became a regular part of our sexy toy chest. Metal rings, for example, are primarily different in appearance and weight, but function identically no matter the design or brand (we prefer those from Gear Essentials). Stretchy rings are now almost all made from silicone, with many models sporting one or more vibrating bullets to enhance pleasure for both partners.

Product Review: Invisible Companion Stretchy Ring

Synopsis: A stretchy cock ring with a powerful bullet vibe.

Freddy’s Review: I love cock rings. From metal to leather to silicone, I like the way they look and love the way they feel. Sure, they can have the effect of prolonging my erection and enhancing climax, but that’s all gravy as far as I’m concerned. The real pleasure comes from watching as my ringed package finds its way to the promised land, otherwise known as Eddy’s vagina.

The Invisible Companion is a clear silicone ring that stretches to fit any conceivable size genitals. It also has a second opening for a small bullet-type vibe (powered by 3 included watch batteries), easily manipulated to hit your lady’s clitoris or give some extra rumble to penetration. It bears resemblance to the Deluxe Techno Lover, which we also love, but without the hassle of having to put the battery in to activate and remove to turn off. Activating the Companion is as easy as turning the dial on the end of the vibe.

Eddy and I had the opportunity to use the Companion on a recent trip to Avila Beach, where we had our own hotel room (our son and his grandmother shared a separate suite). This allowed Eddy to let loose and really apply the pressure from the vibe to her clit as I slowly moved in and out. One of the nicest features of the stretchy silicone is the ability to move it in all manner of directions (or hold it still while I move) while it remains firmly in place – even as the action gets more intense. It wasn’t long before she hit her first orgasm and then recovered to come twice more before I let loose myself. On a separate note, I had just started practicing some techniques from a book promising to teach MEN to experience multiple orgasms, so this was great practice.

In summation, this toy earns our highest recommendation. It’s reasonably priced, powerful, and easy to use. The vibe is good quality and you should enjoy many adventures, both visible and otherwise, with this fabulous toy.

Product Review: Hustler Twice the Love Ring

Synopsis: A stretchy, waterproof, two-vibe cock ring.

Freddy Says: We’ve never been shy about expressing our love for cock rings. No matter what material or design, adorning our erection with one of these devices has provided simple, yet effective pleasures for both of us for years on end. Could Hustler’s entry into the category yield positive results?

In a word, absolutely! The Twice the Love ring is a cute purple wonder that not only enhances staying power, but adds two powerful vibrators to double the fun.

The ring is made of very stretchy elastomer (a combination of silicone and plastic) and can be worn with traditionally behind the testicles and over the shaft, or on the shaft alone. The elasticity is higher than most rings of similar materials, so there’s less constriction as it is fitted into place, and the two ends holding the vibrators make it easy to install the Twice the Love. Speaking of the vibrators, each is held into place by different shaped ends, one meant for stimulating the back of the testicles (pereneum) and the other for clitoral contact. Both vibes operate independently, so you can turn one or both on at your leisure by flicking easy to reach switches. The units provide decent vibrations, though if you are one who likes lots of power you may be disappointed. There’s only so much “oomph” a vibrator of this size can churn out. The upside, of course, is that the toy is perfect for couples new to such devices. We use it to add a nice little bump to our fun.

Quality-wise, the Twice the Love is built quite well. The ring itself has lasted well over 6 months with only slight cracking and the vibrators can be removed easily for battery changing (small watch batteries). The vibes are also waterproof, which makes this product ideal for shower and hot tub play. Cleanup is a snap – just remove the vibes and wash with warm water and soap and the Twice the Love is ready to go. We recommend storing elastomer toys of any type in cool, dry places as sunlight can degrade the materials over time.

In short, the Twice the Love is another solid entry from Hustler, who is quickly rising beyond its porn roots to produce couples-friendly toys that please both anatomy and your pocketbook (indeed, the Twice the Love is only ten bucks). A winner, in our book.

How To: Choose and Use A Cock Ring

What is a Cock Ring?

A cock ring is a device worn around the penis, used to enhance the appearance of the male genitals and extend love making by keeping blood trapped inside the penis. The first documented use of rings were believed to be in China, made from the eyelids of goats, with eye lashes intact. These flexible eyelids were tied around men’s erections and the hardened lashes were said to increase the pleasure from intercourse.

Another version of their history is that the use of cock rings began many centuries ago, developed for a rich prince who did battle bravely and took many women prisoners. Incapable of satisfying his women captives, he took his problem to his kingdom’s man of medicine, who fashioned him a cock ring.

How does it work, exactly?

An erection occurs when the penis is filled with blood after arousal. Simultaneously, muscle spasms occur at the base of the penis causing the blood to be trapped and the penis to become hard. When there is a dysfunction of the muscle spasms, the blood flows out and the penis remains soft.

A cock ring applied snugly to the base of an erect penis will help prevent the blood that is keeping the penis hard from returning to the body. In this manner, the cock ring helps maintain a firmer erection!

Of what kinds of materials are cock rings made?

Cock rings come in every conceivable form and material known to humankind, including rubber, silicone, leather, metal, cloth, etc. We’ve even heard of them being made of Kevlar, but we’ll believe that one when we see one!

What are the BEST cock rings made from?

This depends on what you WANT from a cock ring. If prolonged sex and a harder erection is what you seek, you’ll want a cock ring that holds blood inside the penis most effectively, which means binds the tightest. For this, you should use either rubber or silicone, which stretch the most and constrict blood flow the most effectively. If you wish to wear a cock ring for longer periods of time, you should acquire a ring with a fixed size, such as one made from metal or leather. In the case of leather, most can be adjusted tighter via metal snaps or buckles, so you can get the best of both worlds. There are also versions of cock rings called “cock and balls,” that both wrap around the penis and balls, AND have an extra ring attached to wrap around the shaft only (see picture below).

How do I know what size cock ring to get?

Whoa there, stud! Though we’re sure you (or your partner) is the biggest thing since John Holmes and Ron Jeremy, we can assure you that most silicone rings will stretch to accommodate even the largest johnsons. In the case of metal rings, measuring is quite simple; take a strip of paper about 8″ long and a quarter inch wide, and wrap it around the area, marking where the two ends meet. Measure the length of the paper and divide by 3 and you’ve got your size. For most men, a 1.75-2 inch ring will be sufficient to wear comfortably.

OK, I got a cock ring, how do I properly wear it?

The proper way to wear a cock ring is behind the balls, and around the top of the shaft against your body (see picture at left). With a silicone or rubber ring, you can also place it around the shaft only, but you run the risk of it slipping off during sex or when things get wet and slippery. No matter which one you choose, it should fit comfortably and cause no pain. IN ALL CASES, A COCK RING SHOULD BE PUT ON WHILE NOT ERECT!!!

To put on a stretchy ring, simply stretch the ring with the index and ring fingers of both hands, bringing it underneath and behind the balls, then back toward your body, slowly allowing the tension to bind the area securely. A metal ring is a little trickier; start with one testicle through the ring, then the other, then fold the penis and point it downward, pushing it through and pulling the ring back against your body, above the shaft. For a demo slide show, click here to see what we’re talking about.

That sounds sensible, can these things cause damage to my privates?

The answer to this question is a resounding YES. The penis is composed of millions of blood vessels and constricting blood flow into, or out of, the area is not something your genitals are designed to do. Some of the pitfalls of using a cock ring improperly (too tightly) are numbness, discoloration, and severe pain.

For safety and pleasure, a cock ring needs to increase the size of the erection only slightly. If you notice more pronounced swelling, then the fit is too tight. In that case, take the cock ring off immediately. It’s also vital for men to take off their cock ring at the first sign of pain or if the genitals feel cold. In addition, it’s dangerous to leave a ring on for too long, including wearing one to sleep when spontaneous erections are all the rage. An erection of several hours can cause blood coagulation in the penis, making it difficult to lose the erection. This is called priapism, a prolonged erection. Since new blood cannot enter the penis, this can be severely painful and cause permanent damage to the erectile tissue. If this happens to you, seek medical attention as soon as possible, and don’t worry — the staff at the ER has seen this before.

Where can I get a cock ring?

If you want a metal or silicone ring, we sell them in our online store (you can find reviews of both in our Product Reviews category). However, the BEST places with the widest selection are, believe it or not, gay adult shops. Apparently, cock rings have been a staple of the gay community for years and are just now becoming popular among the heterosexual demographic, to which we belong. If you don’t have a gay adult shop in your area (or, as is more likely, you’re not adventurous enough to go into one), then cruising through the various adult shops online will yield great results. Typing “cock ring” into Google, for example, will generate literally thousands of good resources.
