Chains of Love: The Oxballs Link Reviewed

0

by thepleasurechest

For some folks, an ordinary cockring just won’t do. Meet the Oxballs Link, a silicone cockring that looks just like a steel chain. We sent Sex Specialist Manny home with the Link to test its mettle. Here’s his report…

The Oxballs Link is made from platinum grade silicone and can be used with water, silicone and oil-based lubricant. It measures 1 3/8″ in diameter and can stretch to well over 3″. The 7/8″ width makes it a pretty thick cockring. There’s also a slight heftiness to it, providing added stimulation on the penis. This cockring is designed to look like a chain with links on it, including slight imperfections and faux welds to give it a more realistic look.

"The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat."

The Link has a unique design and it looks hot. It’s super stretchy, so I have no trouble slipping it on. It doesn’t squeeze hard– just enough to give me that tight feeling I’m looking for. The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat

I’ve also tried wearing the Link without lube and was surprised that I was not irritated by the silicone rubbing on my skin. It actually stayed in place and didn’t move or slide around, like some other cockrings. It also makes a fabulous ballstretcher– I like the fact that since it’s more stretchy it’s easier to wrap around my balls without too much trouble. Another advantage is that The Link can be stacked along with other rings to add weight and make ball stretching more intense. I love my Link!
