Vedo Roq Vibrating Cock Ring

Vibrating cock rings seem to fall into two categories: the high-end silicone type with built-in rechargeable vibrators, and cheaper stretchy rings with removable battery-operated bullets. Is it possible a lower-cost ring made of silicone and sporting a 10-function vibe works as nicely as the luxury models? Today I’m reviewing the Vedo Roc to find out.

Peepshow Toys recently began stocking the Roc cock ring and asked if I’d try it out. Made by Vedo, the Roc sports an affordable price (currently about $40 USD). As a reference, most cock rings of this type retail for $80+ to $100 and more. Is it possible that guys can enjoy the same things for over half the cost? First off, let’s take a look at the features Vedo is touting for its Roc cock ring. It’s made of a silky smooth silicone and inside is contained an “extremely powerful motor” with 10 vibration modes. The ring is rechargeable and has a waterproof charging port, which makes the ring itself safe to use in water.  But how does it work? Let’s take a look.

I charged the ring before use. It’s a very straightforward process; push the charging pin into the center of the metal button on the side of the ring. The other end plugs into any USB port. Once the red light turns green you’re ready to play. Even though the embedded vibrator is the selling point of this toy, I first wanted to see how it works as a cock ring. I recently reviewed the high-end Atom cock ring by Pulse and the silicone ring was too snug to wear it behind the balls as a traditional cock ring. With a hole diameter of 3.2 cm (just over 1.25 inches), I was pretty sure the Roc wasn’t going to work as a regular cock ring either, but the ring portion of the toy has quite a bit of stretch. Work it slowly and carefully and you should be able to push each of your balls through the ring and pull your cock through after. I have large nuts, so this is no easy task with most silicone rings, but with a little patience it can be done. The ring is a tight fit when worn around the base of the cock and behind the balls, so if you don’t need an overly tight cock ring and/or don’t want to fuss with getting your nuts through the hole, go ahead and wear it at the base of the shaft. Rings like these are designed primarily for sex enhancement and if your sex partner has a clitoris, she will be able to press or grind against the raised aspect of the ring while it’s vibrating.

The so-called “nub tip” is one of the best features of the Roq. It’s almost like a hard nipple protruding from the top of the cock ring and you’ll get some intense sensations when you press sensitive body parts against it. Designed for clitoral stimulation, it can also please any erogenous zone. Wear the ring behind your balls and let them rest on the vibrator. The nub will tease the fuck out of your nuts and drive you wild. Actually, the entire ring quivers hard when it’s running, so everything it touches gets teased. You can even use the ring as a hand-held sex toy and glide the nub over anything that needs pleasing: nipples, navels, thighs, clits, cocks, and balls. As someone who loves using vibrating cock rings for frenulum massage, I of course tried teasing my sweet spot with the nub – and even the ring portion – and was treated to some pretty delicious vibrations. This thing will get you off! Let’s talk about the vibrator now.

Obviously, when a company puts a powerful vibrator inside a cock ring it’s going to add size and bulk to the toy. If you’ve never used a cock ring of this type before, just be aware that there is some extra weight involved that isn’t seen in basic cock rings. Even cheap battery operated rings are fairly lightweight. The Roq is a little bulky, but no more so than most. Your partner is going to press against the bulbous portion of the ring, so that will help support it during use. Even without someone else pressing on it it’s still not unduly heavy, just bulkier than regular rings. Operating the embedded vibe is pretty easy. Next to the metal charging port is a tiny round button stamped in the surface of the silicone. A quick click gets things started and the vibrations rapidly come to life. The Roq’s vibrator is strong and powerful, even on the “low” setting. Want to move to one of the other settings? Just give the button another quick click. Vedo claims the Roq has 10 different settings, but it’s difficult to separate one from the next. The vibrator is such a powerhouse that even the low settings rev like crazy, and it’s nearly impossible to tell one from another. Frankly I’d love to see a vibrating ring offer some very low/gentle teasing vibrations, for those times when you want to mix it up and not have it blasting. Don’t get me wrong, thunder can be fun, but long sessions would be even more enjoyable with some delicate teasing mixed in when desired.

After the first five clicks (steady vibes), you’ll cycle through the patterns. None of these particularly stands out; again, the vibe is so intense that it’s difficult to tell what the ring is doing a lot of the time. There’s a fast and faster pattern, a steady pattern with a quick drop then back to hard and fast, a rapid oscillation pattern, hard short bursts (this one is my favorite of the patterns, and it’s also the most distinct), a fourth and fifth that offer various levels of revving at slightly different speeds. If you’re looking for unique patterns in a vibrating ring, the Roq really doesn’t offer much of that, but if you need or want powerful vibes in a cock ring, Roq definitely holds its own against rings that cost two or three times as much. Vedo touts an “extremely powerful motor” and they aren’t kidding. The ring charges quickly and lasts for long sessions, even with the vibe pounding away the entire time. Vedo claims one charge will last 45 minutes; I’m thinking most of us won’t last that long with the intense vibrations that the Roq gives off! If at any time you need to shut the motor off, just press and hold the control button until everything ceases. You’ll still feel things tingling long after the Roq has been silenced.

Being made of silicone and having a waterproof charging port, you can use the ring during playtime in the shower, bath or other wet areas. You definitely want to make sure the ring is completely dry before hooking it up to the charger, especially if your USB cable is going to be connected to an electrical outlet. Because it’s submersible, you can easily clean your Roq in hot soapy water when you’re through. As with putting it on, take your time stretching the ring and pulling your cock and balls back through it when you take it off.

All in all, the Vedo Roc vibrating cock ring is a nice choice for guys who want to upgrade to a luxury ring but who aren’t ready to pay a hundred bucks or better for a rechargeable silicone ring. You’ll probably get more variety in vibrations with the higher priced models, but for the price the Roc offers lots of powerful vibration embedded in a sleek silicone package.
