Penis Sleeves: What Are Cock Sleeves?
Do they work?

As a man ages, there are several problems which arise to soil his sexual life, Erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation are just two of the major ones. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of products available which can safely help a man enjoy his sex life without many side effects. A penis sleeve is one such toy.

It is basically a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical product which is worn over a penis to either modify the length and girth of their penis or to give it some additional rigidity facilitating proper intercourse.

These toys are also very effective for premature ejaculation. There are some types which decrease the sensation on the penis and hence effectively increase the time for orgasm.

Are penis sleeves effective?

They sure are. There are several research articles on the efficacy of penis sleeves. For instance, one research found out that they were significantly helpful in increasing the length and girth of the penis while a 2017 article shows that it can be an excellent alternative as a nonsurgical and nonpharmacological strategy for people experiencing ED. It further went on to show that using a penis sleeve the male subjects could achieve orgasm without any hindrance.

In a recent study it was found out that sleeves could actually help preserve an erection longer during sex. Hence improving the overall quality of the whole experience.

How to use a penis sleeve?

It is as simple as 1,2,3.

Depending on the type of sleeve you have, the usage varies slightly. 

For the 2-ring sleeve, before your penis gets erect, slide down one ring to the base of the penis while keep the other near the glans. Make sure the rod/stick connecting the two is properly fastened and not wobbly.

For the dildo sheaths, get your penis to be in a semi-erect state and put it inside the sheath. Caress or massage the sheath until your penis gets hard and snugly fits in it.

If there is a ball strap, fasten it under your testis but keep in mind to leave enough gap between your balls and dick.

Some sleeves also have a waist strap for more stability, you may opt to ignore that, depending on your taste.

How to buy the right sleeve for yourself?

The only thumb rule which you should keep in mind while getting a sleeve for yourself is how snugly it fits you. Even though most sleeves come as a free size, there are some which require micro-adjustments to give you a personalized fit.

These are the points you should keep in mind while ordering a sleeve:

Size

The external dimension is one of the most important aspects and is more crucial to your partner than you. So discuss with your partner and decide on the ideal girth and length of your sleeve before buying a huge one.
I’d suggest, start off with a small one and slowly progress to bigger sizes as you go wild!

Type of sleeves

This one is more important to the one wearing it. For instance, if you’re happy with the dimensions but just want rigidity, go for the 2-rings. If you are happy with only length but want girth, go for open-ended sheaths etc. So decide on what you want and get that for yourself. This might take some time to get used to but after trying out a few types you will know what you want!

Texture

Some sleeves have added texture on the insides to give some added sensation to the dick. This helps in making the orgasm more pleasurable as usually sheaths tend to decrease pleasure. 

Material

There are tonnes of different materials out there starting from vegan leather to silicon to metal. Research on the type you’d prefer and settle for one. This also depends on the type of sleeve you want.

What are the advantages of a penis sleeve?

Penis sleeves come with a buffet of advantages:

  • They can instantly increase the length and girth of your penis. This will not only make it more pleasurable for the woman but will also boost your confidence in bed.
  • Certain penis sleeves have textured insides making sex way more pleasurable to a man.
  • In case you suffer from ED, a sleeve can instantly give you the desired rigidity without fearing a loss of erection at any point. This is extremely helpful for people who can’t consume ED medication for underlying health conditions.
  • In case you suffer from premature ejaculation, a sleeve helps you immensely by reducing the sensation. Certain sleeve sheaths the penis and reduces the pressure around the glans, thereby reducing the sensation on the penis and prolonging the duration of the intercourse.
  • Lastly, it is one of the very few non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical and over-the-counter products available to increase the rigidity of your penis.

What are some disadvantages of penis sleeves?

As with all products, penis sleeves too have their own set of drawbacks:

  • The sex would feel different when you wear a sleeve. Even though this could be a boon to some, for others it could be rather annoying and displeasing.
  • If you’ve no health issues you would get better results with ED medications such as Viagra or Cialis as compared to wearing a sleeve. The overall experience is better.

The takeaway?

Penis sleeves come with a plethora of benefits when it comes to treating ED or other complications regarding the rigidity of the penis. One can even use it occasionally for recreational purposes by playing around with a longer/thicker penis. 

Hence this is a product which one will never regret purchasing. However, before purchasing it, one must keep in mind the points I have mentioned regarding material, size, texture etc. Once you’ve checked all these boxes, you will surely find a sleeve which best matches with your vibe and gives you the experience you’ve been craving for!
