Cock rings — not just adornment for the peen, it turns out. These nifty and mostly inexpensive rings serve a multitude of peen-related purposes.

They can help keep you hard and possibly help you last longer. Some styles even show your balls and your partner’s bits and bobs some love, too.

With so many uses and varieties to choose from, we hit up a couple of experts for their recommendations and rounded up 15 of the best cock rings your money can buy.

We got experts to chime in on what cock rings they recommend and why.

Our recommendations are based on things like:

The first thing you need to consider when shopping for cock rings is your reason for using one.

For example, you might want to:

It isn’t always about the penis, though. Some cock rings are tricked out with extra features to take partnered sex or solo play to another level. Think: vibration, pleasure nubs, and taint teasers. Oh my!

Fit is a key consideration, too, since one that’s too big won’t have the desired effect, and one that’s too tight can do some serious damage down there. A cock ring should have a snug but comfortable fit that doesn’t cause you or a partner discomfort.

And speaking of comfort, you’ll want to put some thought into the material the ring’s made of. Your ring should be made from a quality, body-safe material that won’t break or snag.

Budget’s another consideration, though you don’t need a lot of money to find a quality ring. That said, cock rings can top $100, depending on the brand, materials, and any bells and whistles.

Best cock rings for erectile dysfunction

ED is the inability to get or keep an erection hard long enough to have satisfactory penetrative sex. (Note that “satisfactory” means different things to different people and their partners.)

To get and maintain an erection, blood needs to be able to flow into the penis and be prevented from flowing back out.

“This is usually done automatically by arteries bringing blood pressure into the penis and venules closing in order to prevent blood from exiting the penis,” explains urologist Lamia Gabal, MD, founder and president of Prestige Medical Group in Southern California.

Lifestyle changes and treatments, from medications to shockwave therapy, can help ED. Cock rings — medically referred to as constriction rings or penile occlusion bands — can also prevent blood flow from exiting an erection.

When choosing a ring for ED — or any other reason, for that matter – most experts recommend one that’s flexible, stretchy, and adjustable.

“This means that the band can be tightened initially but will stretch as blood flow comes into the penis” says Gabal.

Giddy Eddie

  • Material: Medical-grade, multilayer polycarbonate/ABS alloy with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) coating
  • Dimensions: Four sizes from 0-4, 1/16 inches to 5 5/16 inches diameter

Price: $$$

“This cock ring/medical device is built more for comfort and practicality than for show,” says Caitlin V. Neal, MPH, resident sexologist for sexual hygiene company Royal.

“And at the price of over $100 for one, it’s best for [those] who struggle with keeping an erection after they’ve gotten one.”

She continues: “This product’s unique shape allows it to prevent blood flow from exiting the penis (thus causing the loss of an erection) without preventing blood from entering the penis. Its open bottom prevents it from putting pressure on the dorsal vein or the urethra, which users may find more comfortable than traditional, perfectly round rings.”

Nasstoys Adjustable Silicone Penis Tie

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 4.5 inches (adjustable)

Price: $

This adjustable penis ring can accommodate most sizes. It’s flexible and can be adjusted as needed with the press of a button, which is why Gabal recommends this and similar products.

It can also be super easy on the budget.

Best cock rings for premature ejaculation or stamina

The jury’s still out on whether cock rings can improve PE or allow you to last longer in bed. There’s no clinical evidence to back this, but plenty of people — experts included — say a ring might help some delay orgasm.

Here are two that, according to reviews, people have enjoyed some lasting power with.

Phanxy Silicone Cock Ring

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 0.86 inch

Price: $

This stretchy silicone ring’s pretty basic in design, but several reviewers say that along with harder and longer lasting erections, the ring also helps them delay orgasm.

It’s thicker than typical cock rings and some reviews suggest that the extra real estate it takes up reduces sensation, which could explain why some users last longer.

Dr. Joel Kaplan Support Master Triple Smooth

  • Material: Thermoplastic rubber
  • Dimensions: 2.5 inches

Price: $

With three smooth, pliable rings and scrotum support, this design lies between a C-ring and sleeve that can help keep you hard and delay orgasm.

It works for solo and partnered fun for first timers and seasoned ring users.

Best cock rings for added sensation

There are cock rings that add sensation by way of special materials, attachments, and vibrations for cock and ball stim, temperature play, and pressure play for the wearer’s pleasure. But wait — that’s not all!

Some are also geared to couple play so the partner gets a cut of the action, too.

DOMINIX Deluxe 1.9 Inch Stainless Steel Donut Cock Ring

  • Material: Stainless steel
  • Dimensions: 1.9 inches

Price: $$

“Nothing beats stainless steel for its ability to create sensation,” says Neal.

“It’s heavy, smooth, and will really create a lot of sensation once there’s an erection because of the strength of the steel against your body,” she explains. “The weight alone is a huge turn on for many.”

It can also be heated or cooled for temperature play.

The ring offers a lot of tug and pull once you slide this 6.2-ounce beast over your shaft and balls.

Just be sure the size is right for you when choosing a steel ring “or else there’ll be issues once you’re hard,” warns Neal.

Sohimi Vibrating Dual Penis Ring with Taint Teaser

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 1.7 inches

Price: $$

The reviews of over 1,000 satisfied customers often compare this budget-friendly ring to high-end sex toy brands, so expect this dual cock ring to deliver sensations galore.

It’s got two flexible silicone rings for the shaft and balls, and a vibrating, textured taint teaser with 10 modes to play with.

Flip it and reverse it and bam (!), it becomes a double-shaft ring or ball-only ring while the teaser works magic on your balls and shaft or your partner’s clit or taint.

You can also use it as a finger vibe for erogenous play. Amaze-balls!

Best cock rings for partner stimulation

If you’re looking to share the love, these rings for partner stimulation are the cat’s meow according to experts and customer reviews.

LELO TOR2

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 1.1 inches

Price: $$$

The TOR2 is the hands-down, legs-up best cock ring for partner stimulation according to pretty much everyone, including Neal, who says it’s “a thing of beauty that works well, is made from the highest quality materials, and is nice to look at.”

Obvs, the TOR2 is pricier than most other rings, but a worthy investment if you can swing it because it’s rechargeable and made to last. It’s also easy to adjust during partner sex and stretches to fit cocks of all girths.

Lovehoney Wowzer 7 Function Double Cock Ring and Vibrating Butt Plug

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 2 inches

Price: $$

If you’re into butt play, the Wowzer is everything and a bag of chips according to the impressive list of features and satisfied customers.

It’s got two flexible silicone rings that go around the D and Bs, two removable vibrating bullets, and an attached slender 3.5-inch butt plug so the wearer gets shaft and P-spot stimulation while the partner enjoys some clit or taint love, too. Wowzer indeed!

Pull one or both bullets to use on the nips, perineum, and other hot spots.

Best cock rings for a snug fit

Fit always matters when it comes to C-rings, but for people with fit concerns, Neal recommends adjustable rings. This goes for people with smaller-than-average or larger-than-average Ds — and beginners who aren’t sure what will fit them best.

Lasso-style rings are perfect because they can be adjusted to your preferences as often as you’d like.

The only downside to this style ring, Neal says, is “it can lose its grip if exposed to too much lube, so some users find it easiest to tie the ends or clamp them while in use.”

Tracey Cox EDGE Maximum Control Adjustable Stamina Ring

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: Up to 8.5 inches (adjustable)

Price: $

This no-fuss no-muss, lasso-style cock ring is fully adjustable and stretchy to accommodate a girth up to 8.5 inches, with some extra stretch that grows with your excitement.

A push-button toggle makes it easy to adjust the size as needed.

Blush Stay Hard Silicone Double Loop Cock Ring

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 9 inches

Price: $

This tie-style ring offers the flexibility and adjustability that experts recommend, but with a twist — two, actually.

The double loops are fully adjustable and can be worn around the shaft and balls, or any other configuration that gets the results you’re after.

Best cock rings for first-time buyers

Experts agree that flexible silicone rings make the best starter rings.

“I always recommend starting with silicone rings,” says Neal. “They’re great for figuring out your size and preferences, and if you accidentally find yourself in a situation with a ring that’s too small and starts cutting off your circulation, you can always remove a silicone ring with scissors.”

These two are popular with experts and newbies, and many seasoned cock ring connoisseurs, too.

Tantus Super Soft C-Ring

  • Material: Silicone
  • Dimensions: 1.5 inches

Price: $

These super soft rings are also super stretchy, so they’re easy to put on even if it’s your first ring rodeo. Stretch it around the cock and balls for a potentially more intense orgasm.

Rock Solid Penis Ring Sampler

  • Material: Silicone, jelly
  • Dimensions: 1 inch

Price: $

This sampler pack of rings is perfect if you’re just starting on your C-ring adventures. The four stretchy silicone rings offer different sensations to let you experiment as you figure out your preferences.

The set includes an adjustable lasso-style ring, a basic donut ring, and a couple of textured rings that can be combined for extra sensations.

Best cock rings for every budget

No need to bust the bank, as you’ll see from our expert’s pick for the best budget ring. Just a few bucks can get you a body-safe ring that’s comfy and effective.

BASICS Comfort Stretchy Cock Ring

  • Material: Soft plastic
  • Dimensions: 1.5 inches

Price: $

This ring’s a total steal and a lot of bang for your buck — literally.

“It’s comfortable enough to wear for a full love-making session, and users report an easy time staying hard with it on,” says Neal.

“It’s easy to wear, well-constructed, and for the price, you can purchase one for both nightstands and two for the road.”

Trojan Vibrations Hot Spot Vibrating Ring

  • Material: Soft polymer
  • Dimensions: 0.98 x 2.72 x 4.95 inches

Price: $

This vibrating ring from the makers of Trojan brand condoms is inexpensive, vibrates, has pleasure nubs, and can usually be purchased in any condom aisle.

Plus, the high-reach extension makes clit or ball stim a breeze, depending on which way you turn it.

Best overall cock ring

Our expert’s pick for best ring ticks all the boxes because it’s effective, affordable, and versatile — so versatile that it can accommodate pretty much any penis.

Lovehoney Get Hard Extra Thick Silicone Cock Ring Set

  • Material: Soft plastic
  • Dimensions: 1.2 inches, 1.45 inches, 1.6 inches

Price: $

“These three rings can be worn in different combinations around both the cock and balls to create different types of sensation, yet are easy and versatile enough for beginners who have limited C-ring experience,” explains Neal.

They’re extra thick and incrementally sized so you can wear them along different parts of your shaft, over your P and Bs, or stacked in any way that feels good for you or a partner.

With the right fit and style, a cock ring can up the pleasure ante in solo or partner fun and can be a useful tool for anyone looking for help maintaining an erection.

That said, if you have trouble staying hard on the regular, a healthcare professional can help you figure out why and go over other available treatments.
