i got a question from a close friend regarding the normal cockring compared to the horse shoe hardwear today and i asked him to join this site.. he called me again at the moment and asked me to ask this for him. anyone here could let me know pros and cons of both and if either of them works with all ages. he is currently 40 something. the reason of using it as he had his hard time of getting an erection in some days and he heard that the cock ring is the only natural way that safer than other methods... is that true? i told him about the hardwear and he thought it might be too dangerous!! please help him clarify this. thanks in advance.
