IF you are a mature male over age 18 seeking occasional variations for enhancing your masturbation pleasure, you may wish to experiment carefully with genital rings. A genital ring is a metal or latex object, or a leather strap with snaps or Velcro, that fits over the base of the penis or around the entire penis and scrotum. (It's not to be confused with the type of ring worn in a piercing.) Many men who use these masturbation aids enjoy temporarily prolonged erections and a heightened sense of arousal. A genital ring sensitizes the wearer to the natural erogenous surfaces at the base of the penis and around the scrotum. In theory, the ring partially "traps" the blood that has made the penis erect. The sense of pressure, the increased hardness of the penis, and the tightening up of the scrotum can provide a unique feeling of "hands off" firmness and control – a "look Dad, no hands" experience. With a proper-size ring installed at the base of the penis, some men can stimulate the shaft for a considerably longer time before orgasm than with routine masturbation. (Note: JackinWorld does not in any way guarantee any of the results described.)
At this point we must emphasize the critical importance of NEVER putting home-made cords, wires, gaskets, rubber bands, or strings around the penis or the scrotum. Impeding the normal flow of blood is dangerous and could cause an aneurysm. Placing tight cords on supple, sensitive tissue and muscle can cause physical damage and pain. Always use proper-size, commercially available products specifically manufactured for this purpose. Above all, be careful and sensible.
Note that the ring should always be loose enough to permit semen to ejaculate. Never have the ring on so tightly that the semen is forced back into the prostate, as irreparable damage could result.
Black rubber latex rings come in a number of sizes. Smaller ones slide comfortably down the penis to the base; larger ones can accommodate the testicles, or the testicles and the penis. While your penis is flaccid, hold the larger latex ring with the left hand along side the right testicle; gently pull the testicle skin through the ring until the testicle comes through. Then continue pulling the skin of the left testicle until it pops into the ring. Now fold some of the penis under the ring and pull the whole thing through. (If you've become erect by this point, you'll have a challenge!) It helps doing this the first time with soap and water if you're in the shower. If you feel any discomfort, be sure to remove the ring as soon as possible.
Leather straps with Velcro or snaps are the most convenient for quick installation and removal if you have pain or discomfort. You can efficiently experiment with the tightness that fits your anatomy the best. You'll soon catch on about how to keep those short hairs out of the snaps! Metal rings come in various weights and sizes. Some of these are "heavy duty" objects and should be used very respectfully. Use at your own risk. If you're really hard and have a difficult mental time becoming soft when you feel discomfort – well, you have a serious situation on your hands.
Some men occasionally wear a latex ring or leather strap during the night, but for such long-term use, the ring needs to be quite loose. Impulses for multiple erections are enhanced by the normal bladder contractions that develop during sleep at night. A loose ring still stimulates an erection but permits the penis to return to a flaccid state – repeatedly. For some, this half-asleep nighttime male phenomenon turns masturbation into a 24-hour-a-day masculine affirmation!
Masturbation aids such as genital rings are available in sexual paraphernalia stores in larger cities. They are also sold on the Internet at a number of sites; browse for "cock rings." (Our apologies for the coarse language there.)
