Rings

A penis ring is a ring that's placed around the base of the penis shaft. It constricts blood flow, which causes a longer-lasting erection and promotes sensitivity. There are a few penis ring variations in both material and function. Rings can be made of leather, metal, nylon or rubber, and some vibrate or have small loops for attaching a bullet vibrator (which is a bonus for female partners during intercourse). Although a penis ring can be pleasurable, it should be worn only for about 20 minutes at a time. If the penis begins to feel numb or painful, remove the ring.

A penis sleeve can be used in conjunction with the ring; these sleeves are a type of artificial vagina and often include a textured interior. They are made to move up and down over the penis shaft [source: Cosmopolitan].
