Review: Ringo by The Screaming O


It looks like candy was my first thought when I picked up the small packet containing a bright red gummy looking Ringo cock ring sent to us from  It reminded me so viscerally of those large gummy rings I used to get as a kid that I half expected it to smell of medicinal cherry when I opened the packet.

This is about as simple as a cock ring can get.  Just a silicone O, plenty stretchy, but still holds tight.  I played with it a while, rolling it around with my fingers, trying to get a feel.  I was hesitant to put it right on, because I know how rubber bands and hair follicles seem to hate each other, and naturally I assumed this would be no different.

I took a deep breath, stretched the Ringo out and slid it down to the base of my cock.  Instantly, I was impressed that it didn’t feel constrictive or annoying.  Too many of the cock rings I’ve tried have come complete with accessories, or danglies, or all manner of annoying things that just feel like I’ve accessorized my cock, and I don’t like feeling like that.  This was simple and snug, but didn’t feel like it was choking the life out of it.

I noticed small “it’s working” details right away, the veins on my cock were popping out a bit more, the head was darkening ever so slightly.  Through usage, it did seem like my cock was staying firmer.  The slight bit of softening that I sometimes see during lulls in play wasn’t as noticeable.

After a while I tried stretching the ring around my balls as well and while this made it a bit more difficult to menuver during thrusting, the sensation was unique and fun.

Works as advertised, and frighteningly inexpensive, would definitely recommend having a Ringo in your arsenal.
