Cock rings are a simple sex toy that enhance the pleasure a man gets during sex. Made to be easily slipped on, they apply a slight pressure to the penis and there are also many designs that provide clitoral stimulation for your partner. But what if you aren’t sure about purchasing one and instead want to make a homemade cock ring? Is that even possible? In this article we’ll explain how to make a DIY cock ring and what materials should and shouldn’t be used.

Should you use cock rings?

Whether you should or shouldn’t use a specific sex toy is entirely up to personal preference and comfort level. Many men love the idea of an easy way to enhance their sexual feeling while others are perfectly happy au naturel.

One of the largest benefits of cock rings is that they are inexpensive and easy to use. You can find simple ones that just slip on and there are no buttons or controls to figure out. While there are more sophisticated, vibrating cock rings available, you don’t need to start with them if you’re a bit hesitant. If you decide to go down this route, a product like the Tracey Cox Supersex Rechargeable Vibrating Love Ring is an excellent option as it provides plenty of options, including wrapping both your penis and your testicles.

For a more simplistic vibrating cock ring, the We-Vibe Verge easily slips around a penis and the vibrations are controlled via a smartphone. This allows both you or your partner to control your sensations.

Another way to go is through both a homemade cock ring and the use of a male vibrator which acts as a cuff around your penis.

The bottom line is that if you are thinking about trying out a cock ring, you should. The worst is it will be uncomfortable and not what you’re looking for. The best is an out of this world pleasure sensation.

Are homemade rings safe?

Yes and no. Homemade cock rings should be made from comfortable materials. You don’t want to put any old object around your sensitive areas.

To ensure your homemade cock ring is as safe as possible, make sure it is clean. Furthermore, it should have some elasticity to it. Remember that penises change sizes and the last thing you want is to have to go to the hospital and embarrassingly ask for help with removal.

How to make a penis ring

There are many objects around your home that you can use for a penis ring. Let’s find out which ones work the best.

1.      Rubber bands

Rubber bands are easy to use and will definitely constrict blood flow, so they make an obvious choice for DIY cock rings. But hold on before you go this route. Rubber bands may be a bit too extreme for what you’re looking for. The thin rubber can cut into your skin and if it is too tight can severely cut off blood flow.

If you think we’re exaggerating, place a rubber band on your wrist. Then, pump your fist to get the blood flow into your hand. Wear the rubber band for a bit and see how it feels. If you’re not comfortable transferring that feeling to your penis, it’s best to try an alternative instead.

2.      Scrunchies

Popular in the 1980s and 1990s, scrunchies are making a comeback and you should take advantage of them. Scrunchies are a great cock ring starter because while they have elastic inside of them, they are covered in soft fabric. This means blood flow is constricted but not cut off. Furthermore the fabric will lend a nice, softer covering.

The one element to consider with scrunchies is that because they are made for women, their designs can be quite a bit feminine. If your partner only has floral prints that don’t exactly turn you on, there are plenty of other options in-store you can consider.

3.      Plumber Ring

While this shouldn’t be the first material you try for a homemade cock ring, if you are a bit more experienced it can be the next step in pleasure. Plumber rings can be found at any home improvement store and come in different sizes and materials. Some have a bit of give while others are made of metal and so won’t stretch.

The biggest thing if you are using a plumber ring is to find the right size. We suggest this guide to measuring penis size. If you pick a plumber ring that is too tight, it can take quite a bit of work to get it off, and again, think about if you want your night to end up in the emergency room.

4.      Tape

Tape may be a good material to use for a DIY penis ring but it just might not be tight enough. To try this, take two pieces of tape and put the sticky sides together. Then, fold over one piece of tape to make a ring. You can either do this and then place it over your penis or you can try taping around your member.

There are two considerations with this method. The first is that the tape just might not be tight enough, and may even fall off. The second is that tape and hair don’t mix. Be very careful of any pubic hair as you may head into the pain category instead of pleasure.

5.      Inner bike tube

Inside your bike tire is an inner tube that keeps the outer tire inflated. This inner tube can easily transform into a cock ring. Again, it’s important to buy a brand new tube. Don’t just grab one from your old bike as it will be dirty and very unsanitary. The good news is that new inner bike tubes only cost a few dollars.

Decide what length your want your cock ring to be and cut the tube accordingly. You can even make multiple rings from one tube. The material of the bike tube is meant to expand, which it will do as you expand.

6.      Shoelaces

Shoes laces are an effective and easy to use DIY cock ring. Simply tie the shoelaces around your penis, making the loop as tight as you want.

While everyone has shoelaces at home, we recommend purchasing a brand new pair. The shoelaces in your shoes are covered in dirt and bacteria. Clean shoelaces are much more sanitary.

7.      Bungee cord

Bungee cords make for great cock rings as the material is highly flexible and the outer material is soft enough for your skin. To make a homemade cock ring from a bungee cord, start by purchasing a brand new cord. Bungee cords come in different widths and we recommend a thinner one to start with. Otherwise it will be too bulky and uncomfortable.

Cut the bungee cord to the length you want wrapped around your penis. Then, glue the two ends together, preferably with a super strength one. Once dried, you can slip the cord over your penis and have some fun.

8.      Condoms

Condoms are truly versatile and make for an excellent homemade cock ring. Take a condom and cut out the circle at the top. It should already be a good fit and the circle is flexible enough for the right mix of pleasure. If you don’t regularly use condoms, a refresher course in condom size is a good idea as it will save you the agony of staring at condom boxes in front of others in the store.

Final thoughts

Increasing your sexual pleasure is not something new. And as a result there are plenty of sex toys to choose from. While some, like male masturbators are quite intricate, others, like the cock ring, are simple in nature. There is no right or wrong toy to try out but if you are new to this sphere, a cock ring is a nice beginner toy. You can even make a homemade cock ring out of materials that are cheap and easy to find. Overall, we recommend using a simple scrunchie to start out with. It’s elastic and soft, and doesn’t take any extra effort to create.
