Live from IML:  NEW Ball Stretcher & Glans Ring


This hot daddy and his partner became new friends of gear essentials this year at International Mr. Leather (IML). They stopped by every day. (And I believe their gear collection grew every day too! Beware:  cock rings, glans rings and ball weights can become addictive!)

On Saturday he picked up a few things pictured below.


Live at IML:  An 8 Oz. PISTON Ball Stretcher & Titan .4 Glans Ring by gear essentials


The Ball Stretcher

He and his partner loved the 8 Oz. PISTON ball weight--and upsized before the weekend was done. The PISTON is brand NEW, unlike any other ball stretcher on the market and was premiered at IML. 

This is the lightest weight we offer and the best option for someone new to ball weights. It is the easiest to put on and is great for all day wear. Like its smooth sibling (our original stainless steel split cock ring in brushed finish), it will put an erotic tug on your balls as you move around. The swing can feel wild! This is the lightest weight at roughly 8 ounces and is only 1/2-inch / 12.7 mm wide. It comes in two interior diameters: 1.25 inches and 1.5 inches.

This is also a great size if you want to 'stack' (wear more than one ball stretcher at a time). Stacking is great to customize the amount of weight you are swinging and it is a great way to move up to the next size. 


The Glans Ring

We fell in love with glans rings (also known as 'head rings') and realized we had to create our own. The one pictured above is the bigger of the two new Titan glans rings at .4 inches wide (10.16 mm). It is also our heaviest.

There is a classic simplicity to the Titan Series. Created in the tactile brushed finish, this is yet another Brand NEW Original from gear essentials! The Titans are carefully crafted in solid stainless steel in the USA. These are a bit heavier than our lighter aluminum glans rings so if you want to weigh down the head of your penis for a longer flaccid look these will do the trick. Like our other glans rings, the Titan .4 fits perfectly beneath the corona of your penis. These are the best quality we have seen in a glans ring--the safest metal for your family jewels and long-lasting--like YOU! The Titans also feature gear essentials' exclusive 'corona fit' with a squared interior rim to help prevent the ring from slipping off. Because of its lean profile, the Titans are great for stacking or use as a shaft ring. These rings coordinate with the Titan Series of cockrings. Put them on and you will stand out!

So why wear a glans ring? We have several reasons:

  1. It looks hot -- a lot of naturists wear glans rings because it is a great way to express your individuality.
  2. It delays orgasm -- when you have a head ring on, it masks the sensitive nerve endings around the base of your dick head meaning you last longer. One recent buyer of several of our new glans rings reported that it made his head fuller and harder (blood is restricted in the head of your dick) and makes his orgasms more intense.
  3. It increases your partner's pleasure.
  4. The ring weighs down your flaccid penis so you look BIGGER!
  5. It gently rubs as you walk. Many guys have commented that it's like a mini hand job in your pants!

These are designed for all day wear--and our testers had no negative experiences wearing them all night. Enjoy this classy man-accessory and enjoy the powerful feelings as you feel your rod in ways you've never experienced before!

Sex is better here--and you and your partner will enjoy the amazing erotic sensations when you wear our cock and ball gear.  ENJOY!

Alexander: Thanks for your comment. The beauty of life is the endless variety—we all are made differently & enjoy different things. There are days when I feel like a Nitrile or Silicone ring—alone or in combination with an aluminum or heavy-duty Fury. Then I can ‘cap’ it off with a glans ring & a ball weight for a different kind of pleasure. The fun part is I get to express myself and find pleasure regardless of which I choose! ENJOY!



I prefer the rings from the pllastic



Hey, Mick—glad you are enjoying! The Omega is a beautiful ring (to look at and and to touch). Send your pic to me at and we’ll post it on the blog. Thanks!



I purchased the Omega (brushed) cock ring, and I was awarded a free Gear Essentials (T-shirt ) The real fun started when my play bud saw it and went off on me!! Wow what a night in the sling!!! I do enjoy wearing the Omega to work and on my errands as the smooth firm fit and heavy weight reminds me of what is important!! I want to post the pic of my friend orally stimulating me with my Omega,,, Hope it works,,,, Mick
