When things feel good, you want them to last as long as possible. Or maybe longer. That’s where the cock ring comes in. Designed to enhance your experience by making it harder to stop, cock rings are definitely one of the more popular sex toys in ManLove.

It may be hard to believe, but cock rings have been used for over a thousand years. It seems the appeal is timeless. The earliest cock rings were created around 1000 AD in China, and they were actually made from the eyelids of goats—eyelashes still intact. Let that image sink in for a while.

As technology advanced, sex toy manufacturers of the world experimented with various materials for cock rings. Ivory was used often until the invention of vulcanized rubber in the 1800s, but it was the development of latex rubber in the 1930s that revolutionized the sex toy industry. Cock rings were more widely available than ever following the end of WWII, and they gained the most popularity among gay men. During the gay sexual revolution, cock rings were one of many symbols of pride.

Now cock rings can be found in materials like leather, silicone, and stainless steel. They can vibrate, have weights attached, or adjust to your personal preferences. Some are so extravagant they beg to be shown off. This ring by esculpta is definitely more than a sex toy—it’s a beautiful piece of jewelry.

From goat eyelids to high fashion, the cock ring has come a long way, and I’m sure it’ll stick around for even longer. Be sure to check out the links below for tips and a vast selection of cock rings!
