In February 2004, a famous singer became infamous due to the accidental boob flash that occurred during the half time show and the term “wardrobe malfunction” became a huge part of the national lexicon. One of the most talked about aspects of the performance, besides the breast, was the intricate piece of jewelry that adorned it, and suddenly those of a more conservative bent became privy to the existence of art for the body.

The use of decorations regarding our most intimate areas is not a new concept and dates far back in human history. Body painting, piercing and adornment has served many purposes, most notably in tribal rituals as symbols of affiliation, identity and status, but it was also used in hunting and magic rituals. Tribesmen in Africa and New Guinea were known to cover their genitals with eye catching, handmade art pieces.

In today’s modern society, body art, with the exception of tattoos seemed more prevalent with women, until men became more open regarding nipple rings and penis piercings. But those who chose to go this route remained largely amongst a community unto themselves. The cock ring would find itself king in the world of mainstream body art for men, and its uses remained largely confined to sexual enhancement or as an aid against flaccidity.  The choices were also limited mainly to rubber rings resembling the arm bracelets that Madonna made popular in the 80’s, or solid metal that looked more industrious than appealing.

Enter Esculpta.









The designer at this company has taken cock rings out of the bedroom and into the jewelry case where the artistic craftsmanship of these beautiful pieces can be showcased and admired. Gone are the simple rubber bands of your grandfather’s era, and in their place are these beautiful pieces handcrafted from sterling silver featuring masculine symbols of the zodiac like Capricorn, the Satyr from Greek mythology and Byzantine rhythm of the East Roman empire.  The beauty easily transforms into a symbol of pride that would look just as stunning on the wrist as they do on the shaft. And in true, majestic form, some of these are made with real gemstones in your choice of sapphire or ruby.

It may seem silly in this era of reality television, with people willing to exploit all their faults for the sake of fame that there would still be those uncomfortable with the notion of wearing something as simple as a cock ring, but in some minds there is a stigma attached to that notion. Esculpta has removed that stigma by creating conversation pieces that defy conventional labeling.  Gay, straight, bi-curious, monogamous, promiscuous, conservative, liberal, unassuming or self indulgent, the beauty of the art overrides the identification of the wearer. After all, his own penis has long been man’s favorite toy, so why not dress it up with something befitting our closest friend.








Esculpta does not limit their art to the nether regions. They also make pendants, rings, cufflinks and bracelets in both sterling and solid silver, each using elements of the past, the future, hope and freedom as inspiration in the design. You’re covered from top to bottom, so to speak. And should you ever find yourself in a situation involving your own wardrobe malfunction, you can rest assured that Le Cock Ring will give the viewers plenty to talk about.
