I’ve got to be honest, I’m not much of a cock ring fan. I don’t mind them occasionally as something different to our usual lovemaking, or as an addition to a dildo. But generally I find they don’t reach my body enough to stimulate my clit. They do, however, provide OH with a rock hard erection that lasts like a Duracell battery.

Cock Ring

The team at ‘Lovely’ sent me this beautiful jade green cock ring to test and review. The first thing I thought upon receiving it was, wow, this looks like a luxury product. It’s a gorgeous colour and comes in impressive and expensive looking packaging.

Removing the Lovely from its box, I notice it’s made of the smoothest softest silicone. I inspect it thoroughly and test its stretch, which is reasonable stretch. The thick circular ring is durable and strong, I have no fear of it snapping!

The underside is flat and the top has three gentle ridges. Switch on is by pressing the centre button. Here’s what you get with the button:

  • First press – constant mid range vibe, somewhere between buzzy and rumbly.
  • Second press – lower vibe, deeper, rumblier.
  • Third press – staccato pattern, virtually constant and very rumbly.
  • Fourth press – slower staccato rhythm and rumbly.

Press and hold the button to turn it off again.

Sizing

Size wise I’d say the ring is a bit bigger than a 50 pence piece. I wondered whether it would fit on my OH without feeling too tight. First things first, I test it on a dildo (see photos). It fits well, snugly, and was quite difficult to get on. I make a mental note – when I come to use it on hubby I’ll need to use plenty of lube.

Charging is easy as you simply place the Lovely into its charging station which plugs into a USB port.

When I used this on my OH, I lubed up the ring to make it glide on easier as it is indeed quite a tight fit! It took a bit of time to gently move it down to the base of his cock. The tightness of the ring made his cock rock hard and all the veins stand out. He was a bit taken aback by the strength of the vibrations at first, but upon getting used to them he said they felt quite pleasurable. I really enjoyed having him lay on top of me and grind against me, feeling the deliciously smooth silicone rumbling against my clit. The vibrations are impressively deep and, coupled with the quality of the silicone, felt divine.

I did experience some trouble when my husband was thrusting as we lost contact with my clit, and I need constant pressure in order to reach orgasm but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the movement. It just needs to be continuous if I’m to climax.

The App

You can get information, ideas and inspirations after you’ve used the Lovely via the app which you can download from ourlovely.com/app

Upon installing the app, you need to firstly set up your profile by adding your body traits and desires. This gives you an indication of calories burned during a session, and the desires show the app what you’re into so you get personalised tips. There isn’t too much to add so it’s quite a quick and easy job.

You’ll then need to sync your device which is easy peasy too; simply switch on Bluetooth on your phone, follow the on-screen instructions in the app and turn on your Lovely. The app will find your toy. Once you’ve registered your cock ring, when you come to use it, the app stores your data.

You can also add your partner if they download the app too, and this means your sessions and tips are joint which is a great way of connecting (literally as well as electronically!) with your bedtime partner.

I love how the app records your sessions! I quite enjoyed telling my hubby how many calories I burned during our first try of the Lovely (to calculate his calories, he would need to download the app too and enter his body traits etc).

The more you use the app, the better it gets. You can receive daily tips and tasks as well as suggestions for new positions (including diagrams!)

The app also gave me some tips and tricks and was easy to use. I think the app is a great feature and makes using the cock ring more exciting. Technology and sex don’t always go together, but it’s something a bit different and at the very least it’s a talking point!

Remote Controlling via the App

Cock rings sometimes come with just one function, others have a variety which is great, but it’s awkward to change the pattern or intensity via a button on the device once it’s in use. The Lovely app takes away any off-putting fumbling around trying to find the small button on the toy. One touch of the app’s screen and you can choose your pattern and intensity without having to scroll through them all to get to your favourite.

I’ve always thought that app-controlled toys are unsexy as – let’s face it – who wants to see their partner messing about on their phone during a passionate session? But this makes life so much easier whether you’re playing with a cock wielding partner or using it on a dildo. An absolute winner!

Using Lovely with a Dildo

I like to test products in different ways so, as well as on my other half, I tried out the Lovely on one of my dildos. I pushed it down over the dildo’s head right to the base, where it sat just above the balls. To keep the Lovely in contact with my clit (which I need to do to be able to come), I insert the dildo and gently grind it against my g spot whilst pushing the Lovely against my clit with my other hand.

The rumbliness feels as good as any vibrator and the silicone is smooth and gentle against my most sensitive parts. This is a really fun way to make my dildo feel different as the vibrations from the cock ring travel through it, turning it into a vibrator!
