"Sex With Emily" host Emily Morse answers your questions about erectile dysfunction, cock rings and other toys that help men last during sex.
I am 40 yrs. old and have been with my wife for 20 yrs. I have been on blood pressure medication for about 10 years and have never had any erection issues until recently. I can get an erection fine but keeping one for a session of sex can be difficult. Do penis rings really work? Please help!

First, I’d go to your doctor for a check up. This is always the first place to start to make sure that nothing else is going on with you. As far as ‘rings’ for men. They’ve been reported to work with great success. The rings fit around your penis, usually at the base, primarily to slow the flow of blood from the erect penile tissue, thus maintaining erection for a much longer period of time. You can buy many different types of rings these days, some models include a vibrating clitoral stimulator designed to hit the clitoris during intercourse. Try the Neo Vibrating Cock Ring. The vibrations can feel good for both the man and woman– so it’s a win win! There are other rings, like the triple ring, or triple crown that have additional rings for restraining the testicles. The testicles usually retract towards the body before ejaculation so these rings change and intensify the sensation of the orgasm by forcing the testicles to stay away from the body. Good luck. Let me know how it goes.
