This post originally appeared at the now-defunct Cockring Buddha. I loved that guy’s blog and style and wanted to preserve some of his best stuff here, since it’s still so useful.
I tried a Tantus Beginner C-Ring yesterday. The size and shape are very similar to a steel cock ring, but it’s made of high quality silicone. It’s almost impossible to stretch, but can be deformed (squeezed into an oval). Obviously, this is a cock and ball ring, and has a 2” inner diameter. The silicone is really nice and velvety soft. Top quality, and made in USA. Very body safe and very hygienic. It also appears to be built to last about ten lifetimes.
This was my first time using a rigid ring, where I had to insert each ball first, and then my flaccid penis afterward. I was a bit nervous, but my hesitation turned out to be for naught. It was really quite easy. I’d read about the installation procedure on a number of websites, and they all mentioned lubing up to make installation easier. I’d also read many horror stories of creating an impossibly slippery mess in the process, and the lube making it impossible to get the thing on. From many years of cycling experience, where riders often lube up their crotch before riding, I knew that I wasn’t going to go this route. I’ve always taken a much more practical approach in my cycling, and just dusted myself with baby powder instead. The baby powder feels great on a shaved groin, and totally stops chafing. Everything is dry and smooth and friction free. So I powdered up in the private bathroom at work (I have a locker there), and popped on the ring. It was totally easy. I squeezed my smallest testicle through first, making sure to pull through as much sack skin as possible. Then I popped through the second ball, and tugged all of my loose scrotum through the ring. Last but not least, I pushed my flaccid penis through the remaining part of the ring. I thought it would hurt, but there was no pain at all. The cock ring was installed, with a minimum of discomfort, in about 60 seconds or less. The baby powder worked perfectly, allowing everything to slide through with no drag whatsoever.
Wearing the Tantus Beginner Cock Ring
It was obvious from the first second that the ring was on, that this was an entirely different experience from using a flexible cock ring. It didn’t feel like there was a rubber band strangling my package. It was a much firmer type of constriction, putting equal pressure through a much larger area. It felt like my cock and balls were being firmly hugged. It immediately put pressure on the true base of my cock, deep inside my body, sending off waves of pleasure through me. It was positively joyous.
So I put my jeans back on, leaving my boxer briefs in my locker, headed into my office, and sat down at my cubicle. The intensity of wearing this ring was incredible. I tried to have a couple of phone conversations, and answer a few emails, but it just wasn’t happening. I couldn’t concentrate on anything. I finally just sat back in my chair, and simply experienced what was happening to me. It felt like my entire body was orgasming in ecstasy. My breaths were long as full. I started to sweat slightly. I didn’t have a full erection, but I was noticeably engorged. A good female friend and coworker immediately noticed the swelling as she visited my cubicle, and gave me a smile and a wink. “You’re obviously having a good day.”
I sat in my chair and just breathed through the waves of pleasure for another 20 minutes or so, until I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too intense for me to handle in public. I finally strolled back to the bathroom, trying to look as casual as possible, and took my pants off. My cock wasn’t fully hard, but it was fat. I’m a grower, not a shower, so the difference from normally flaccid was obvious. I also had quite a bit of precum leaking out. I eased my smallest ball through first, which mercifully popped right out, thanks to the baby powder. After the first ball was out, the rest was a piece of cake. The ring just slid off.
Being heavy into Yoga and Buddhism, I can only surmise that the pressure of the cock ring on my pelvic floor started my Kundalini to begin to rise, creating those intense waves of pleasure throughout my body. If you don’t believe in chakras and such, we’ll just leave it as a full body orgasm experience. Whatever it was, it was one of the few times in my life that I’ve felt this, and it was amazing on many levels. Afterward, sitting back at my office chair, I was both emotionally and physically spent. I just wanted to roll up into a ball and sleep. There was an incredible rush of emotion, which I am not at all accustomed to.
As you can see, my first rigid cock ring experience was quite good, and probably more intense than others are likely to experience. It seems that I found something in the Tantus beginner C-Ring that brings out much more in me than mere physical pleasure. I would go so far as to say that it was a spiritual event. Something that I will not easily forget.
On a technical note, the Tantus ring fits my body well. My hard-ons are normally of average to slightly above average girth. I have gained a full erection while wearing this ring during sex. My cock was hard and full and very sensitive. I experienced no chilling of my balls. My erection did not experience the symptom of a drastically pronounced change in color either, both of which I’ve experienced when using other cock rings. While maintaining my erection, I was easily able to get insert three fingers between the ring and the underside of my balls. This leads me to believe that once I’ve grown accustomed to the feeling of this rigid cock ring, I can safely take the next step, and purchase a Tantus Intermediate C-ring, which has an inner diameter of 1 7/8”. I’ll report back when I’ve given the Intermediate a try.
Thank you Tantus. This is an incredible product, that I might dare to say has created a life changing experience for me. I would guess that this ring will not only serve me for the mere act of physical pleasure, but will also be used as a prop for my spiritual growth in the future. Your company is aces in my book.
