The benefits of using cock rings aren't hard to find.

Have you heard of cock rings? We'd be surprised if you hadn't, given their growing popularity and functionality in the bedroom, but hey - nothing wrong if you haven't!

Cock rings (which can also be called couples rings, penis rings, and c-rings, among countless other names) are ring-shaped sex toys that wrap around the penis. Sounds simple, right? It should be, but when you get into practical uses, it’s not such a simple fit or a fit at all. Although we are big fans of the original, recently cock rings have received a massive upgrade with revolutionary new technology.


Companies like MysteryVibe are positioning themselves as world leaders in sexual wellness by breaking the (literal) one-size-fits-all mold for sex toys. Why? Because a world built on averages excludes too many of us since people, unlike products, don’t fit into presets. So they shifted the design process to focus on the user’s needs first. That means you come first!

For example, MysteryVibe took the basic principle of cock rings to the next level by creating the first and only wearable vibrator for men, Tenuto. To best understand just HOW much pleasure a next-level cock ring can provide and what it can do for your sex life, let’s dive into the benefits of cock rings.


1. Get Harder

As long as your cock ring is snug, every single cock ring out there will give you a harder erection. How much hardness that penis ring provides is entirely based on your penis size, the cock ring's size, and how the two interact.

Cock rings are designed to give you a harder erection. An erection happens when blood rushes into the penis - and causes it to “get hard.” (It’s a lot more complicated than that, but that’s the basic gist.) Essentially, c-rings work by trapping blood inside of the penis. When you wrap a snug, tight ring around the base of the penis, it takes a lot longer for blood to escape - which means that more blood gets trapped inside of the penis. As more blood builds up there, your erection will feel harder - and voila! The cock ring process is complete.


How "hard'' your penis gets with any given cock ring is based on a lot of different things and how they interact - but most notably, how snugly the cock ring fits onto your penis. If the ring is very tight, more blood will be trapped within the penis for a harder erection. If the ring is comfortably loose, you may see minimal hardening benefits from it.


Unlike traditional cock rings, Tenuto’s adaptable design adjusts to a variety of penis sizes and shapes for a snug and comfortable fit no matter your size. It easily opens and stretches to wrap around the base of the penis and can be worn before and during intercourse, providing a strong yet comfortable grip to maintain the erection.

2. Stay Harder Longer

Now that you understand how cock rings work, you probably also can see how they would make your erection last even longer too. Since it’s harder for blood to escape the penis, it’s more difficult to lose an erection while wearing a cock ring.


This means you can stay harder - for longer - even when direct stimulation may not be happening to the penis. For those who worry about losing erection mid-play or get frustrated when they begin to lose hardness when switching positions, a couple's ring like Tenuto can really help alleviate those concerns.


Cock rings also are regularly recommended for those who suffer from erectile dysfunction - or have difficulty achieving erection. A ring may not be the be-all, end-all solution depending on what's going on, but it can make a drastic difference for many - including for age-related concerns.

3. Increased Pleasure

While cock rings are stuffed full of a lot of benefits, the pleasure tends to be one of the biggest ones wearers care about. Not only can a cock ring restrict blood flow - which might make the shaft of the penis more sensitive to touch - but many cock rings vibrate for a whole new realm of enjoyment! Some cock rings also go beyond the cock. Sometimes the manufacturer crafts a design that adds in an anal plug - or a design that presses up against the perineum for even more sensation.


Many cock rings add enough pleasure for the wearer that users like to wear them even while masturbating solo! It's a fun way to add more sensations to the penis while leaving the majority of the shaft still open for business.

If your goal in wearing a cock ring is to increase pleasure, look no further than MysteryVibe’s Tenuto. Unlike a traditional cock ring with one motor that vibrates the perineum, Tenuto sports 6 motors! Yes, you read right! 6 motors!


Why are vibrations so important? Vibrational therapy is a scientifically proven method of increasing blood circulation. And what makes erections harder? More blood! (Science is cool, right?) Tenuto’s anatomically placed motors send targeted vibrations to the penis, testicles and perineum, which means heightening sensations, increasing arousal and blood flow for a maximized erection.

4. Pleasure For Your Partner

This is a big one! Especially in penis-in-vagina sex, most people on the vagina-end of that pairing need clitoral stimulation in order to orgasm. However, intercourse can place two bodies really close together - which can make it difficult to ensure that person gets what they need to orgasm. (That, of course, is assuming you actually have the hands available to pleasure the clitoris too! Some athletic sex positions can really make that difficult!)


That's where vibrating cock rings can come in. Since these little devices are already wrapped around the penis, they're in the perfect spot to take up the work. That's why you'll see so many cock rings equipped with protruding clitoral vibrators. These vibrators are crafted to help reach the clitoris and provide the necessary pleasure during intercourse to help partners achieve orgasm.

MysteryVibe’s Tenuto goes above-and-beyond one simple motor. Taking the shape of the labia and featuring three separate motors, all perfectly positioned around the penis at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock, it stimulates the clitoris and all of the surrounding nerve endings in the vulva. You can imagine how much additional pleasure that can add!

Get hard, stay hard, arouse you and your partner and feel the ultimate couple climax again and again (for real, though!). Sextech designs like this mean one step closer to bridging the orgasm gap.

5. Customize Your Experience

Everyone likes something a little different in the bedroom. I mean it would be pretty boring if we couldn't switch it up a bit. So while a cockring isn't necessarily something you will pull out everytime you want to get busy, it can certainly add some fun when you do. To spice things up even more, tech-enabled sex toys offer additional zing.

The Tenuto, for instance, lets you tailor the experience to your preferences. It has 16 different intensity settings and each motor can be individually programmed with the free app to vibrate when and where you like. You can dial up the intensity (or not) depending on your sensitivity level and change the patterns or switch off the motors you want to vibrate. 6 motors x 16 settings x endless vibration patterns = endless orgasms (is it hot in here, or just me?)! Experience elevated orgasms with a stronger, harder erection for longer! They’ve really personalized pleasure with all these accouterments.

You can also spice up couple’s play with MysteryVibe’s app. Now your partner can live-control your pleasure remotely, even adjust the intensity, and set the tone with the app’s customizable vibration patterns (because not everyone vibes on the same wavelength).

6. Increased Confidence

Sporting a powerful erection and experiencing even more pleasure can leave a person feeling confident - and that's not a bad thing! If cock rings help you tap into your sexual energy and get you feeling powerful and erotic (all at the same time!), that's a great thing!

That's one of the wonders of sex toys. When we use them as tools, we can find the right combination of toys that really makes us feel more confident in the bedroom. With penis rings, you might find that you worry less about the availability of your erection - which might give you added confidence. You may find a perfect match that allows you to increase (or decrease!) how long you last during intercourse - which might add to your confidence. You might even just enjoy the sensation of feeling a fuller, harder erection, and that might be all that it takes.

Whatever it is, adding a cock ring to your sex live can boost your confidence.

A cock ring like Tenuto which pleasures both partners at the same time, can relieve performance anxiety and help ensure that both you and your partner will be more than satisfied.


7. No Medications - and Applies in Seconds

If your penis isn't cooperating that day, there are pills that can make it more likely to cooperate - if your doctor approves you for them. On the other hand, if a cock ring works for you, you can skip the medication. Not only are cock rings reusable, but they also come with way fewer potential side effects when used properly.

Vibration is also a proven, non-medicinal solution for sexual health issues in men including erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, desire disorder, and general pain relief. Tenuto’s 6 anatomically placed motors increases blood circulation and has been recommended as a safe alternative to medication for erectile dysfunction along with helping other sexual dysfunctions.


8. Encourages Creativity

Now that you're enjoying the benefits of using cock rings you are probably going to want to figure out all the ways you can get (and give!) the most pleasure out of it and your next sexcapade. A new toy and your imagination can be a powerful kick start to keeping your sex life thrilling.

Maybe that means experimenting with new positions so the vibrations hit both you and your partner in just the right spot. If you aren't worried about losing your erection, you may enjoy the freedom of switching positions or locations a bunch of times. Maybe you will want to try some edging or BDSM power exchange by handing over the controls and submitting your pleasure to your partner's will. Really, there's no limit to where you might go!
