Review: Vibrating Cock Ring vs Lust3 cock rings

Having longer and harder sex. That's something men have been trying to do for millennia. If you can think of it, it’s been tried. Cock rings, however, are a fantastic way to get and stay hard. This is why they have grown in popularity. So much so that you can get this sex toy in any shape, size or design.

The basic idea of a cock ring is to restrict blood flow in the penis. This creates stronger erections that stay for longer. That’s what they say. But I decided it was worth trying out with my partner, just to be sure. Introducing the vibrating and Lust3 cock rings from You2Toys.

Cock Ring Review: Vibrating vs Non-Vibrating

The packaging that the cock ring came in was nice and easy to open. The ring itself is a soft and stretchy red silicone material. There is a little pouch with a miniature vibrating bullet inside. It looked exciting and fun to wear. Batteries were included in the packaging, which were easy to insert into the small vibrating bullet. A tiny button on one side of the bullet activates the vibrations, which were surprisingly powerful. It’s like a strong phone vibration.

Putting the cock ring on was easy. Because the silicone is extremely stretchy, you don’t need lube to slide it on. You simply stretch it wide enough to get it on. It feels comfortable, even to the point where you might forget about it. The material is soft, and it genuinely looks good.

Initially, I positioned the cock ring so that the bullet was facing downwards. This meant that when I activated the vibrations, it stimulated my balls. Although it felt pleasant, it was by no means mind-blowing. Instead, I rotated the cock ring so that the bullet was facing upwards. Apparently, this would stimulate my partner’s clit. In her opinion, it was stimulating and definitely felt enjoyable. At times it even helped her stay excited. But it didn’t help in bringing her close to orgasm. This could possibly be because the vibrations were not strong enough, or because it wasn’t positioned properly.

In terms of keeping me hard, it did, a little. It wasn’t a significant difference from not wearing it. However, at times I could feel it mildly restricting the blood flow and causing me to be harder than usual. After a while the vibrations got distracting, so we decided to switch it off.

Altogether it was a good experience. Would I use it again? Definitely.

 

What we enjoyed

  • It was easy to put on and use.
  • It looked cool and created a sexy vibe.
  • The vibrations were more powerful than expected.
  • It provided added stimulation during sex.

 

What we didn’t enjoy

  • It didn’t help in giving me stronger/longer erections, possibly because the silicone was too stretchy.
  • Although the vibrations were good, they got distracting after a while.

Lust3 cock rings

The packaging of these three rings was the same as the vibrating cock ring. The first notable difference was that the rings were a lot more rigid and ribbed. This made them difficult to stretch or contort.

Each of the rings are a different size, which ranges from 2,6cm, 3cm and 3,5cm. This means you can wear one of them over your penis and another over your balls. I decided to do both, because why not. Getting them on was not easy. Because they are rigid and ribbed a little lube helps to get them properly positioned. I wore the 3cm one around the base of my penis and the 3,5cm one the base of my balls. The 2,6cm ring was too small and uncomfortable to wear.

Once they’re in place they feel firm. You immediately experience them restricting the blood flow. This made getting hard surprisingly fast. It also created a more powerful erection. My partner noticed the difference and even reckoned that my erection was a little bigger. The ribbed texture of the rings looked awesome, but they didn’t create any extra stimulation for my partner. The 3,5cm ring sat nicely at the base of my balls. It didn’t really assist me in any way, but it looked great.

 

What we enjoyed

  • They gave me better erections.
  • It definitely restricted the blood flow and made me get harder much faster.
  • All three rings are versatile and can be used in more ways than one.

 

What we didn’t enjoy

  • It was a challenge to get on.
  • The ribbed pattern didn’t help with stimulation.
  • The 2,6 cm ring was too small for my penis.

 

Conclusion

If you want harder and stronger erections, it’s best to go for the Lust3 rings. They are more rigid and effective in restrictive blood flow. You may, however, want something sexier and that also does a better job at stimulating your partner’s clit. You should then go for the vibrating cock ring. Either way, both will give you a good time and both are relatively easy to use and clean.
