There’s a whole new world out there, with cock rings designed for pleasuring the wearer and their partners during sex. So there's never been a better time to pick up a cock ring to experiment with.

Cock rings can be worn in many ways, from hugging the shaft, worn around the balls, or even both at the same time, they can help delay ejaculation, strengthen your erection, and prolong sexual stamina so you can last even longer.

So, without further ado, here are all the best cock rings you’ll be dying to add to your basket. (And before you ask, yes, they all come in discreet packaging. You're welcome.)

With five functioning vibrating modes, you can find the rhythm that matches yours, as the textured silicone ring vibrates against your partner’s clitoris or perineal, while simultaneously the dual rings hug the shaft and testicles for a boosted sensation. 

You can take the bullet vibrator out and use it separately to the cock ring, giving you two sex toys in one. And for that bargain reason, this guy is number two on our list.

The controls are super easy to use and it’s designed with an elongated shape that allows for targeted partner contact, so you can hit the spot when you’re in the zone. It’s both waterproof and rechargeable too!
