The Verge by We-Vibe is a vibrating penis ring that is specially designed to massage the perineum. The perineum is an erogenous zone nestled between the anus and the scrotum that responds to pressure or vibrations.
If you are as sexually woke as some of us (or as we assume to be), you may have heard that you can apply pressure to this area with your finger during sex or masturbation for more explosive orgasms.
The main features of the Verge Cock ring are:
- It has a rechargeable battery
- It runs relatively quietly
- It is waterproof.
- Its outer layer is soft, non-toxic silicone.
- It is quite small and discreet.
- It has ten pre-programmed vibration modes
This cock ring is designed to give you hard, long-lasting erections as well as powerful orgasms when you learn to use it right. You can wear it alone while you masturbate or when having sex with your partner; more on that in the “how to use it right” section.
I like the We-Vibe Verge because everything about it is easy and straight forward (except the part about wearing it testicles first, as you will find out later in this review). The reason why I say this is because it charges on just about any USB port, controlling it is easy, and cleaning it takes less than 3 minutes.
You can control it remotely using the We-Connect app, and it is also teledildonics-capable. Teledildonics is a technology that facilitates the transfer of tactile sensations via a communication channel; in this case, the internet.
Many people argue that teledildonics is the missing link in facilitating successful long-distance relationships because it means that you will not be completely giving up intimacy with your partner when you are not together. Do you agree?
If you love having a bit of fun in the water with your partner, the good news is that the Verge is WATERPROOF.
It charges for 90 minutes and then runs for 2 hours – We-Vibe recommends that you use it in 30-minute bursts rather than the entire 2 hours at because wearing a penis ring for too long can harm your penis. For your convenience, when the battery runs low, the indicator blinks.
The Verge is quite easy to use, and you can get it going with the following steps:
Step 1: Apply some water-based lubricant to the cock ring.
Step 2: Before you get aroused, while your penis is flaccid, wear the verge by passing both of your testicles through the ring one at a time. Then pass your penis through the ring (If you have a wide penis, it may not fit, but your balls alone will hold the ring comfortably in place without having to pass the penis through the ring.)
Step 3: If you want the penis ring to massage the perineum, position the ring such that the elongated stimulator faces downwards. Alternatively, you can stimulate your partner’s clitoris during sex by positioning the elongated stimulator of the ring to face upwards and touch her clit.
Step 4: Press the control button to switch it on.
Step 5: You can cycle through the vibration patterns using the control button.
Step 6: To turn off the Verge, press and hold the button for 3 seconds.
The We-Connect app
You can control the Verge using your smartphone. But to do that, you need to download the We-Connect app on Apple Appstore or the Google Play store depending on your device.
Out of the box, it has ten vibration patterns pre-programmed into it; these are the patterns (vibes) that you cycle through with the power button. However, you and your partner can create your custom vibes on the We-Connect app.
When you install the app, you can pair your device to your phone to manipulate the vibration patterns and intensity, and by doing so, your smartphone will function as a remote control.
To pair your Verge with your smartphone follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the We-Connect app on your phone.
Step 2: Long press the power button for up to 5 seconds until you feel two distinct vibrations accompanied by two flashes of the LED. Those two occurrences signal that the device is ready to pair with your phone.
Step 3: Tap the “pair We-Vibe” button and then the play button on your screen.
Step 4: Swipe through the different vibration modes and create your custom vibes conveniently on the app. You can even create a playlist of your favorite vibes.
Couple play involves letting your partner control your Verge as you control her We-Vibe product and the beauty of it is that you can either do it in the same room or from the opposite sides of the globe.
It’s a fun way to initiate intimacy because she can use the app’s interface to create custom vibrations for you. You can also video chat or send each other raunchy photos and texts via We-Connect’s video and chat in-app feature to heighten the experience.
To make it happen, both you and your partner in crime need to install the We-Connect app. The app forges a connection with the other person’s app via an internet connection much as internet-based messaging apps do. With the communication channel established, you can now control your partner’s device through the app just as she can control yours.
There are two ways in which Couple Play happens:
- One-Way Control: Only one of you has a We-Vibe sex toy, and the other party controls it using the app, OR you both have sex toys but are taking turns controlling each other’s device.
- Two-way Control: You both have We-Vibe sex toys which means you can control her We-Vibe toy as she controls your cock ring.
To set up One-Way Control:
Step 1: Pair your Verge with your phone.
Step 2: Choose the “Connect Lover” option to connect your phone to hers.
Step 3: Now she can control the penis ring from her end.
To set up Two-Way Control:
Follow steps 1 and two under One-Way Control, but this time, she should also pair her device (which has to be a We-Vibe product) to her phone. When you get linked to her via the app, she can control your penis ring as you control her toy.
Cleaning the (sex toy)
The verge is entirely waterproof. When you are done using it, toss it in some warm soapy water, or you can clean it with a sex toy cleaner. If you choose to use a sex toy cleaner, find something that is silicone-friendly.

If you are going to buy the Verge cock ring, the best place is online from a credible seller. I have had nasty encounters with conmen who sent me the wrong or fake items.
In each of those situations, I was left with a sour taste in my mouth because I either lost my money (they never refund you, of course) or ended up with a product that was clearly fake. You cannot take any chances with a cock ring because the fake ones are made using harmful materials that have been shown to cause inflammation. They also break down pretty fast.
The true mark of a trustworthy seller is the fact that they sell quality products and their shipping is reliable and cheap.
