The penis ring is a medical clamp that is pulled at the base of the male genitals to treat sexual disorders (erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation) in men. One of the oldest collections that has already formed the basis of sexual culture, the Kamasuth in India, also mentions the wooden rings that can be placed on the penis, which were the predecessors of today’s penis rings.
THE PURPOSE OF THE PENIS RING
The penis rings play a role in the second stage of the erection process, i.e. after the erection is achieved. Once an erection is achieved, it is pulled at the base of the penis to prevent blood from flowing back through the venous network of the cavities, making the erection harder and more lasting.
Biological background of erection
To understand the function of the penis ring, it is necessary to see the biological background of the formation of an erection. Erection occurs as a complex and interacting reaction of neural, psychological, hormonal, and vascular functions. At rest, the smooth muscle cells in the cavities of the cavities of the penis (latinul corpus cavernosum - conceivable as a tubular cavity) are in a contracted state, so that the inflowing blood is unable to swell the cavernous body. In this case, the blood needed to supply the tissues for normal functioning flows into the penis and then leaves it unimpeded through the veins.
