Has anyone used those (for moderate ED) with success? His erection is barely hard enough for penetration, he can but it’s not the best. Viagra pretty much does nothing. (He is on testosterone).
Wondering if it does work to help increase hardness even a little bit but also i am wanting to increase his pleasure any way i can.
Since we are both “middle age” (ugh) last time we had sex he asked if it felt good to me (the position we were using for PIV) i told him i am just concentrating on not sliding off the bed and squeezing my kegels to make it more pleasurable for him so it becomes a workout for me which is fine. I also told him it doesn’t feel exquisite in there (inside the vagina) like it used to, probably because of age but it’s something i just realized not too long ago. Nothing i can do about it. He also agreed that sex doesn’t feel as wonderful as it used to for him, either but we both agreed we still love it and love it with each other.
SO, i am hoping a penis ring even somewhat helps him in both areas, or if there are other things TMB can suggest to help intensity of orgasm and pleasure for HIM?
What Ron said.
I’ve used them. Don’t buy the cheap, stretchy ones. There is one that I bought that has three rings: One for around the penis, one for around the scrotum, and one that goes around both. You can just use one or all three (using all three is not only supposed to help with strength of erection but duration as well).
It depends why he’s having erection difficulties, but I’ve used them and found that they work.
An erection is caused by the muscles in the penis contracting around the veins whilst the arteries dilate. This allows blood to flow in but not out, the penis fills with blood and becomes erect.
A ring will compress the base of the penis, effectively taking on the role of the muscles in producing an erection. This makes it easier to get hard, which can also make sex more enjoyable, not least because it reduces anxiety about maintaining an erection. Some rings are also textured or have a small vibrator attached with the explicit intention of improving sex for one or both partners.
Given how cheap they are, it’s worth trying a ring, but it’s definitely worth keeping his doctor in the loop, as this may indicate he needs a higher dose of testosterone, or there may be other underlying health conditions that are affecting his ability to maintain erection.
We have used rings with some success. I also take L Arginine to increase blood flow and this has helped some as well. Neither has been the perfect answer, but beats giving up on love making. I to use testosterone gel. Getting older is not always easy, but we enjoy the effort together.
Ok, here is an issue where I am definitely getting the feeling we are doing something wrong. We have tried several different types (the bolo style, the stretchy o-rings, this kind: https://www.amazon.com/MenSilicone-Flexible-Clock-Rings-Toy/dp/B083NR1C46/ref=sr_1_162?crid=37K0B2PKSYR16&keywords=pennis+rings+for+men+erection&qid=1579110852&sprefix=penis+ring%2Caps%2C163&sr=8-162 except we have a set of 3 and can’t figure out which one is supposed to go where because none seem to fit where they should, and a leather one with snaps). All but the ones linked have caused him considerable pain and the linked ones mainly just fall off or won’t go on at all.
We did finally figure out about the manscaping; that made some difference, but not enough. We are baffled and all those toys have either been discarded or stored away with the “might try again someday, but certainly not essential” toys.
