I’m a die-hard cock ring user. Here’s why.

Scott Parrish has been around the block when it comes to penis problems. Not only does he suffer from hemochromatosis - an iron disorder that can cause ED - but he also has Peyronie’s disease, which is when scar tissue builds up inside the penis.

This combo made it difficult for Scott to find solutions that would work for him and wife in the bedroom. But after a bit of trial-and-error, he discovered the FirmTech Performance Ring and gave it a shot.

It worked so well that he’s now a die-hard fan. We chatted with Scott over the phone to hear more about his experience.

Many people have never heard of cock rings. What are they and how do you use them?

When you put a ring on, it basically closes off the ability for the blood to flow out of the veins of the tissue, back out of the penis. This helps you maintain an erection during sex.

Why did you first start using them?

I have hemochromatosis, an iron disorder that causes different issues. In my case it caused an irreversible erectile dysfunction. So my wife and I started using a cock ring to help with that.

When did you start using FirmTech?

When I got Peyronie’s on top of hemochromatosis, I decided to get an erectile implant to help. Even with the implant, there’s still an opportunity to use a ring to help with girth, but certain rings could put too much pressure on the implant and cause some kind of damage because of the way they fit.

But with FirmTech, the way that it molds itself, it makes it a lot easier and a lot safer to use. I found it through the help of my doctor after I got the implant.

The first time I used a FirmTech ring with my wife, I didn’t even tell her, and she was surprised. She could tell there was a difference in the extra girth, compared to what it felt like without the ring.

Are there different types of cock rings out there? What kind would you recommend?

There’s plenty of styles and shapes and sizes of rings on the market, made of different materials.

With the FirmTech, it’s comfortable and easy to use because of the soft pliable material it’s made of, which is manufactured to mold itself to each person. In comparison, with most other rings, you have to see which size you want to get, since some sizes can be really tight and others can be too loose.

The standard run-of-the-mill rings also have a limited time span you can use them for, usually the 30 minute range. And if you don’t remove them in 30 minutes or so, they could start to cause tissue damage.

FirmTech rings can be worn safely for hours. Also, FirmTech is designed to be easy to take on and take off because you can just unhook it. Most other rings you have to slather up with lube to slide it on and off.

Do they have benefits for giving your partner more pleasure?

If you can get a good enough erection and hit the G spot with the extra girth, that’s definitely a benefit for your partner. For anyone thinking of trying a penis ring, what advice would you give? Don’t buy anything but the FirmTech ring. It has a $75 price tag on it - some people might look at that and say, it’s not worth it.

But then if you go out and try others, you might not read the fine print about not leaving the ring on for too long, and fall asleep and wake up and have an eggplant on your hands.

The FirmTech rings are just a lot more comfortable and easy to use. Also, if you use the tech ring, you can connect it to an app which will provide you with data about your erections while you sleep - then you can pass on that medical information to your doctors to figure out what’s going on.
