Ball Zinger

Blakoe Ring / Libido Ring

I am extremely grateful to David (Manser / Hilliard) from England who developed a knockoff of the bulky Blakoe Ring, or Libido Ring, which uses a plastic case to hold small pieces of copper and zinc against skin in the genital region, where moisture creates a very small, continuous current. I've simplified his design.

I've been wearing my "ballzinger" for about 3 weeks now, and I definitely notice an improvement....regular morning wood again (it's been a few years) and erections are easier to obtain. I actually got my semen analyzed (for other reasons) and the sperm count was twice the previous test a couple months before. The doctor said it was "impressive". The quantity of semen still seems to depend mostly on water intake during the day. I no longer drink coffee, and I try to take in about 1 gallon of water a day. It makes quite a difference!

  • 3/8" zinc Corrosion-Inhibitor Rod. Source: (very pure: lead .06, iron .005, cadmium .025~.07, aluminum .005). 3" long, item#3606K6 - $5.29 • 6" long, item#3606K1 - $6.54. Shipping very reasonable.
  • 3/8" O.D. refrigerator (food) grade copper tubing. Source: Home Depot, <$10
  • 1/4" I.D. latex hose. Source: Lowe's - $1.40 / foot.
Hacksaw, tube cutter (optional), file, scissors, ruler


  • Prepare pieces: use hacksaw to cut metal to length (a tube cutter works better on copper tubing). Smooth sharp edges with a file. Use scissors to cut two pieces of latex about 2.5" (~65 mm) long. If too tight, cut one piece longer.
  • Assemble: Push hose ends over rod and tube about 1/4" (6 mm)
  • Test for fit: grasp metal pieces and pull outward to stretch tubing. Slip balls through and gently release. It should feel comfortably snug (mine works better since stretching my scrotum). Metal can be on the sides or top and bottom.
  • To remove, simply roll the tubing off one end of a metal piece. You can do this quickly with one hand.
  • Trimming hair around the sides and bottom of scrotum makes the procedure more pleasant. You can also use a depilatory, such as Magic Shaving Powder.
