Cock rings, or penis rings, are some of the simplest sex aids around.
So, what do cock rings do? Well, they prevent blood from flowing back down the penis, which in turn can help to make erections feel harder and last longer than usual, potentially making your enjoyment last longer and an orgasm more likely.
Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, while others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around both the penis and the testicles. This guide will show you how to put on both kinds of cock ring.
If you’ve never enjoyed the thrill of prostate play, then you’re missing out!
Located a few inches inside the anus on the wall closest to the stomach, this internal erogenous zone, sometimes called the P-spot, is an incredible epicentre of pleasure. Massaging it can lead to explosive full-body orgasms, hands-free 'super-Os' and even multiple climaxes.
Discovering your prostate gland isn’t that difficult, but pleasuring it properly takes a bit of time and skill. Luckily for you, there are plenty of tricks and toys on hand to help.
Cock rings are simple devices that help to maintain a harder and longer-lasting erection by restricting the blood flowing back down your penis, which in turn makes your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely. Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will tell you how to measure yourself for both kinds.
Cock rings are measured by diameter. This is the measurement across the widest part of the hole in the ring. You want a cock ring with a diameter that's smaller than your personal measurements - this will ensure you have the constriction that you need. Start with something just a little smaller than your measurements, because the smaller you go the tighter the cock ring will be.
Most cock rings are adjustable or have stretch to them to ensure a good fit, but to be sure it will fit perfectly you need to find out the diameter of your cock or cock and balls. You may be wondering how that’s translatable to your very 3D penis, but it’s easy to calculate and we'll show you how.
When used correctly, condoms can protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections - but it's essential that you know how to apply and remove them properly.

Once you've chosen the right condoms for you and your partner, it's time to learn how to use them effectively. This guide explains everything you need to know about putting on, using and removing a condom.
Anal vibrators are vibrating toys designed for use in the anus. Anal vibrators come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can be used by anyone with an anus to stimulate the rear's sensitive internal and external nerve endings.
Many anal vibes are curved to stimulate the prostate gland (or 'P-spot'), making them especially pleasurable for men. Others include textures for external stimulation of the perineum, and some can even be operated via remote control.
Toys for anal play should always feature flared bases or finger loops so they're safe to use in the butt. Many anal vibrators start with a tapered head to help ease insertion, and it's always best to use plenty of anal lubricant like Lovehoney Discover Water-Base Anal Lube when playing with an anal toy.
Other toys like butt plugs and anal beads can also vibrate, so why not see if a vibrating version of your favourite anal toy exists?
Foreplay doesn’t just have to be a kiss and a cuddle within the confines of the bedroom. In fact, erotic massage is the perfect way to connect physically and emotionally.
The majority of our everyday communication is non-verbal and body language plays a huge part in how we communicate and understand other people. It should therefore make sense that massage, one of the most intimate kinds of touch, is a good way of communicating with your lover. Each caress, stroke and rub can be used to say anything from “I adore your body” to “I hope you had a good day at work”.
Finding tense spots in your partner’s neck, shoulders and back then kneading and massaging them with your hands will not only remove physical pain, but it can help unblock their mind as they focus less on the pain and the stress associated with it.
A massage can be a simple stroking of the hands or a good going-over of the whole body. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll soon realise the benefits to your heath, your body, your relationship and your sex life.
