1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Rings trap blood in the erect penis and decrease venous leakage but there is a large amount of penile tissue in the pelvis that can't be constricted by a ring at the base of the penis.

use with some degree of caution. Wearing a ring for too long could affect the tissues by restricting healthy blood flow. I suggest using a ring that can be released or stretched to remove instead of solid ring, like metal.
