Use a looser grip: When you are enjoying your body by yourself, use a looser grip and more lube. The ring is made of hemosiderin (iron pigment from red blood cells) and results from breaking of the little capillaries just beyond your hand where the delicate skin takes the most physical stress. This physical sign's ubiquitous among teenaged males & i'm assuming your case is the same. Good luck..
