If there is anything that we learn from that American Pie scene, it is the fact that when you are horny, everything is a sex toy. Getting a cock ring might not be something you fancy, and it might be because of the price or, maybe, the nervous vibe that might come with going to purchase one. One thing we know, though, is that if you have a penis, you have at one time tried to construct your penis, maybe, with your hand or any other tool. And we know you enjoyed it. In this article, we will be talking about all things cock rings, you need to read this.

Recap: What Is a Cock Ring and Why You Need to Use One

We have talked about cock rings previously, but just as a brief recap, we are going to go again. What are cock rings, and do you need to use them? Cock rings are rings that men wear at the base of their penises. The main purpose they serve is to make erections harder and longer. These are the primary benefits, but there are dozens of other advantages available. We will talk about those later.

Cock rings (the commercial ones, of course) are made of a variety of materials, which include leather, rubber, silicone, and metal. All the materials work well. Depending on your preference, though, you are probably going to have a favorite.

The downside to these cock rings, though, is that most of them are a bit pricey, and, well, for some people, getting into a sex store might not be one of their favorite activities. On the other hand, the good thing is that there are several homemade alternatives that you can employ to make your sex life better, and we know all about that.

How to Make a Homemade Cock Ring?

Over the years, we have managed to come across a large number of cock ring alternatives. We will be helping you by giving some ideas. And we have a lot of them, so you can easily choose one that is accessible and comfortable to you.

Shoelaces

Yes, your pair of sneakers comes with a premium and quite effective sex toy. Shoelaces can be one of the best cock ring alternatives available, and they might work better than your normal cock rings. We have already highlighted that cock rings work by constricting blood flow to and from the penis. With a bit of craftiness, your shoelaces can do just that.

How It Works

Just get a shoelace from any of your shoes and wash it. We recommend that you wash it thoroughly. The last thing you would want in your penis is a bacterial infection. Once you have washed it, the fun can start. We recommend that you use a damp shoelace. That way, you won’t end up with a bruised penis. Tie a knot with the shoelace at the base of your penis, just at the point where it detaches from your body. Make sure the knot is tight enough for you to feel a construction without necessarily feeling over the edge uncomfortable. If you are tying the knot before the act, make sure it’s not too tight to make room for the erection.

The best part about using a shoelace as a cock ring is that you can continuously adjust it to fit your penis as you go along. That is why you need to tie a knot so that you can adjust it in real-time. See, it’s not a bad idea to spend $300 on those sneakers – you get a free sex toy as part of the purchase.

Hair Bands

The relationship between elastic materials and penises is one of the longest-standing relationships ever. In terms of cock ring alternatives, hair bands provide the flexibility that you will not get anything else. If we didn’t know any better, we would go as far as to claim they are better than actual cock rings, but that is one thing you have to decide for yourself. Hair bands are really easy to come by, and you can get them in almost any accessory store for a couple of cents. We recommend that you buy elastic hair bands. The inelastic ones can be a bit of a problem, just go with the elastic ones.

How It Works

Hair bands are elastic and allow you a lot of freedom that you are likely not going to get from the cock rings. If you have bought the longer hair band, you might have to double, triple, or quadruple it, depending on its length. Make sure that it fits perfectly if you want it to work as effectively as possible.

There are two main ways that you can use elastic hair bands as a cock ring. You can use it at the base of your penis. We recommend that you place the hair band before you get an erection. This way, the erection will grow into the bands. The experience is quite unrivaled, and you will certainly enjoy it. Hair bands are great in the essence that the material is quite comfortable. As much as it will tightly hold onto your penis, it won’t cut through, unlike other clock ring alternatives.

Alternatively, you can use the hair bands on your balls. It’s a cock ring, yes, but using it on your testicles will give just the same effect if not better. How do you do it? Well, take your hairband, hold your balls tightly, and get the hair bands behind your testicles. It might be a bit uncomfortable at first, but you will eventually get around the minor discomfort.

Condom Ring

Now, it might be the most accessible cock ring alternative available. If you have condoms at home, you have a whole pack of cock rings. The fact that condoms come with lubrication means you get an affordable cock ring that is easy to carry around and is quite comfortable. If you are starting in the cock ring “business”, we recommend you start with condom rings before you choose to commit and buy the actual cock ring.

How It Works

Some condoms will likely not work with this method. You need a condom with a thick rubber ring to get the cock ring effect. We recommend that you buy condoms that are a size smaller than your normal size for this to work well. Once you have the perfect condom, roll it out and cut off the thin loose part. There is no need for razor-sharp precision. Don’t stress if any of the thin material remains, it will work just as well.

Once you have your DIY cock ring, place it at the base of your penis. The ring is likely going to be a bit difficult to get to the bottom of your penis if you already have an erection since it’s a size smaller. Push it down, this part is also a bit sexually enticing. You will enjoy it, trust us on this one. Once at the bottom, get ready to enjoy your longer and harder erection.

Plumber Rings

Who knew that one day men will be going to hardware stores to get toys for their “hardware”? If you are one of those hardcore pleasure fans, then this will do you just right. Plumer rings do not only keep pipes in place, they can keep erections up too. The problem with plumber rings in the cock ring scene, though, is that they are not flexible, and that might be quite a problem. If you plan to have it on during sex, it’s a bad idea. Do not go through with it. We recommend that if you want to use plumber rings as cock ring alternatives, you have to use them only for masturbation.

How It Works

The first thing you have to do is measure the girth of your penis when erect. If you have a measurement, find a plumber’s ring that is smaller than your penis girth. Make sure that the difference is at most 0.5 cm. This is enough allowance to make sure you are not in pain, but at the same time, it allows you to enjoy cock ring privileges. Once you find the perfect plumber ring, get it on your penis before you get an erection. Do not have sex with it! Chances are it will end with one of you in the emergency room.

We recommend that if you decide to use plumber rings as cock ring alternatives, you stick to some solo action or some anal penetration. That way, you won’t have to worry about severe injuries to yourself or your partner. It is also essential to make sure that you do not try to remove the cock ring when you still have an erection. You are most likely going to injure yourself.

As thrilling as knowing how to make a homemade cock ring, you have to make sure you keep yourself safe. You have to understand that actual cock rings will work better. With an actual cock ring, you won’t have to worry about ending up in the ER. Get yourself the best cock ring and enjoy the best pleasure it can offer.
