The best cock rings are for everyone, whether you want a vibrating cock cage or remote-controlled ball coddler.
The Best Cock Rings 2022
Composite by VICE Staff

Did you know Britney Spears wrote “Circus” about shopping for cock rings? (She didn’t.) Just look at all those studs, loops, and snaps. We love them. But damn, they can feel dizzying when you’re just in the market for a no-frills ring, or if it’s your first time shopping for a cock ring at all.

 If you’re never bought a penis ring before, it might seem intimidating. But as Kelli Bender explained while testing a bunch of penis rings, fret not: A cock ring won’t guillotine off your penis. The point of this whole thing, after all [squirts lube] is to restrict the blood flow at the base of the penis, usually with a silicone ring, to prolong erections either when masturbating solo or with a partner. That being said, do be mindful of your body’s needs, and maybe start off with an adjustable ring for your first time. Communicate with your partner, and practice using your ring outside of the hot and heavy moments first so that you feel more comfortable with it when that horny, spur-of-the-moment magic arrives. Get familiar. Buy your cock ring a cup of coffee before shooting the breeze.

Once you start to find your footing, there’s a whole world of multitasking penis rings to explore; there are vibrating cock rings that stimulate and tickle; there are remote-controlled cock rings, and rings that hit both the perineum and clitoris. Here’s our short list of the best cock rings out there, whether you want dual loop action or a ring that’ll make your peen feel like a caged MMA fighter. 

Your first cock ring

“Adjustable" is your key word when shopping for a first-time penis ring, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the frills of texture or a vibrating attachment for clitoral stimulation.

You’re ready for a double, textured ring

These are the rodeo-ready vibrators. The double-looped, ball-hugging cock rings that give an extra element of constriction. As an owner of the Lovehoney’s top-rated Tracy Cox ring says, “It’s amazing for solo play as well as with your partner. Makes it a much better and more enjoyable finish.”
