How We Reviewed These Ball Spreaders
The term “testicular stimulation” can mean very different things to different people. Some people prefer intense tugging, others prefer a more gentle approach. And then there are the people who fall somewhere in between. We know that the phrase “different strokes for different folks” is very accurate, which is why we did our best to find a wide selection of different toys for this list.
Of course, we didn’t just pick products at random. Actually, a lot of thought went into the list you’ll soon read below! These ball spreaders were chosen for a variety of factors including build quality, value for money, pricing, sizing options, and more. We also took any user feedback we could find into consideration, as we always do our best to bring you high-quality recommendations.
We’ll get started on the list pretty soon, but before we do, here are a few different things you should keep in mind when trying to find your next (or first) cock and ball divider!
Reviews of the 7 best ball spreaders
Test Winner Oxballs Superior Cock and Ball Sling
Are you looking for a basic ball spreader that gets the job done without breaking the bank? If so, then this is the toy for you!
Costing less than $25, this sleek-looking black sock and ball sling holds your boys securely in place. It also keeps your balls apart, thanks to the thin strip running down the center.
Combining a snug fit with a tiny bit of tug, this is a great option for those who want to take the next step beyond a basic cock ring!
- ✅ Stretchy
- ✅ Affordable
- ✅ Phthalate-free
- ✅ Firm fit
- ❌ Can be difficult to put on
- ❌ Only offered in one size
- ❌ No color options
As noted by multiple users, the main issue with this toy is that it can be challenging to get in place. However, once you get it in place, you shouldn’t have any issues with it popping off! We would recommend trying to place your testicles first, then your penis. That said, depending on the length of your penis, that may prove to be a challenge.
Still, this toy does get the job done for an affordable price, which is why we think it’s worthy of being the test winner. While you can certainly find something easier to work with, this toy offers the best tug for your money!
You should buy the Oxballs Superior Cock and Ball Sling if you...
- Need a budget-friendly option
- Have a penis at least 1.5” thick
- Like a snug fit
You should not buy the Oxballs Superior Cock and Ball Sling if you...

Cheapest T-Style Cock Ring
Love the look of leather but living the vegan lifestyle? Not to worry: you can still njoy the aesthetic with this faux leather cock and ball divider!
Unlike the previous ball separator, this toy is adjustable. It uses snap clips to stay in place, allowing you to choose from one of two sizes to secure your downstairs.
Why struggle to fit stretchy rings over your nuts when you could just snap them in place instead? For less than $20, we can’t complain!
- ✅ Easy to adjust
- ✅ Snap-adjustable
- ✅ Realistic-looking faux leather
- ✅ Affordable
- ❌ Not genuine leather
- ❌ Limited adjustability
- ❌ No directions included
This ball separator is perfect for vegans as it doesn’t use genuine leather. However, for people who do want real leather, this toy is likely to fall short of expectations. It lacks the feel or up-close realism of higher-quality faux leathers.
However, considering the extremely low price point, we don’t really hold the materials against this ball spreader too much. Aside from that, there isn’t too much to complain about. The snaps only have two sizes (so check before ordering to ensure you’ll fit), but they are adjustable.
Overall, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly ball spreader to start your collection, you can’t go wrong with this T-Style Cock Ring w/ Ball Divider from Bondage Boutique!
You should buy the T-Style Cock Ring if you...
- Want something easy-to-use
- Like the look of faux leather
- Prefer adjustability
You should not buy the T-Style Cock Ring if you...
- Don’t need adjustability
- Prefer real leather
- Have a penis diameter less than 2”
Beginner Silicone Ball Spreader
Do you prefer all of your sex toys to be made from high-quality materials? If so, the faux leather ball spreader we just showed you probably didn’t catch your eye. However, this next item—a silicone ball spreader—probably will!
This ball spreader is made up of three rings: one for your penis and two elongated rings for your testicles. The flexible and stretchy silicone offers the perfect balance between fit and firmness, allowing you to really feel every movement and enjoy the experience.
If you’re looking for a basic ball spreader but aren’t quite sure what you want, this toy could be a great place to start!
- ✅ Purpose-shaped rings
- ✅ Easy to use
- ✅ Made of silicone
- ✅ Affordable
- ❌ Shouldn’t be used with silicone lube
- ❌ One size only
There isn’t much to say about this silicone ball spreader, either good or bad. It’s affordable, well-designed, and made of a high-quality material. If we were to be picky, it is a minus that there’s only one size offered. While it will likely fit most men, it really isn’t a one-size-fits-all scenario.
That said, most guys will fit. Due to the shape of this spreader, it’s extremely easy to use: just slide the main ring down your shaft then fit your balls through the other two rings!
Offered at an affordable price, we think this simple spreader is definitely worthy of your consideration.
You should buy the Silicone Ball Spreader if you...
- Prefer silicone sex toys
- Like stretchy rings
- Don’t need adjustability
You should not buy the Silicone Ball Spreader if you...
- Prefer silicone lubricant
- Want an adjustable toy
- Need a different color
Silicone Cock and Ball Sling with Ball Divider
Want a sturdy, all-in-one cock and ball sling? If so, then this bad boy probably caught your eye! Made of silicone in classic black, it might not offer much in the way of visual appeal, but it’s sure to keep your package in place!
The stretchy design of this toy can accommodate most penis sizes, and the addition of two extra holes (complete with a separator) keeps your balls pulled down and away from your body.
Simple, affordable, and effective, this sling is perfect for beginners and the experienced alike!
- ✅ Easy to clean
- ✅ Made of silicone
- ✅ Classic black coloring
- ✅ Soft and flexible
- ❌ One size only
- ❌ No color options
- ❌ Not for use with silicone lube
This ball spreader is a bit thicker than most of the others on this list. Although it’s still made of stretchy silicone, the additional material means that this sling will have a bit more grip than the alternative options.
For men with average-sized penises, this shouldn’t be an issue. However, if your penis is more on the thick side, this sling may be uncomfortable to wear. This is definitely something to consider before purchasing this sling. Unfortunately, it’s only offered in a single size.
That said, if your penis will fit, we think most men will be happy with this cock and ball sling. Easy to use and simple to clean, it’s a classic design that just works!
You should buy the Cock and Ball Sling with Ball Divider if you...
- Want a simple sling
- Prefer silicone toys
- Have an average girth penis
You should not buy the Cock and Ball Sling with Ball Divider if you...
- Need an adjustable sling
- Prefer a looser fit
- Want color options
Weighted Tri-Snap Weighted Ball Spreader
Are the other toys not doing it for you? Perhaps a ball spreader complete with weights is more your style!
This uniquely designed sex toy uses weighted balls to tug and spread your balls at the same time, with 1.5 oz. of weight for extra stimulation. Paired with the integrated cock ring, this toy is sure to give you the release of a lifetime!
If you’re looking for a design that steps away from the more traditional “cock ring with extra holes” look, you can’t go wrong with the Tri-Snap Weighted Ball Spreader!
- ✅ Weighted design
- ✅ Bulbed strap
- ✅ Inlaid snaps
- ✅ Adjustable
- ❌ Only one size offered
- ❌ Tugs on penis & testicles
- ❌ Pricer than alternative options
This toy is a bit different from the rest, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The weights are a great idea, but we think they could have been executed a bit better. While they will definitely add a bit of weight to your testicles, the design also exerts a bit of downward force on your penis. Unfortunately, this will counteract the downward tugging force.
Still, this toy isn’t really intended to offer a lot of tugging, and you’ll still feel the extra weight during intercourse anyway. It does a good job of separating your balls (which is the primary purpose of this toy), so no complaints there.
If you’re looking for something a bit different that’s made from high-quality materials and takes a step away from the more traditional design, this Tri-Snap Ball Spreader may be worth looking into.
You should buy the Tri-Snap Weighted Ball Spreader if you...
- Prefer a bit of extra weight
- Love silicone toys
- Require adjustability
You should not buy the Tri-Snap Weighted Ball Spreader if you...
- Don’t want extra weight
- Prefer smooth straps
- Usually use silicone lube
Rubber Rubber Ball Splitter
On the hunt for a ball splitter but want something that looks a bit more “rugged”? Perhaps this rubber ball splitter will do the trick!
Obviously inspired by traditional BDSM gear, this ball spreader is covered in snaps and even integrates a D-ring into its design (making it easy to attach a chain or weights to the device.
For a toy that focuses on the balls—and only the balls—this should be your go-to!
- ✅ Easy to use
- ✅ Made of high-quality rubber
- ✅ Works with oil-based lubes
- ✅ Focuses on “the pull”
- ❌ No integrated cock ring
- ❌ Made of rubber
Aside from its great looks, we thought this ball spreader was worth mentioning because it’s one of the few ball splitter toys that focuses entirely on the balls. There’s absolutely nothing on this toy that attaches directly to your penis!
For some, the lack of an integrated cock ring may be a drawback. However, if you’re one of the people looking for purely testicular stimulation, it’s certainly a plus.
Whether or not this is a plus or a minus will ultimately depend on the person using it. However, for us, we think it makes this toy an attractive option!
You should buy the Rubber Ball Splitter if you...
- Only want balls stimulation
- Don’t mind rubber
- Like adjustability
You should not buy the Rubber Ball Splitter if you...
- Want an integrated cock ring
- Prefer a stretchy strap
- Don’t like rubber
Leather Leather Cock and Ball V-Style Divider
Last on our list is this leather cock and ball v-style divider! This ball divider uses straps to keep your penis and balls securely in place, each one held on tightly with the integrated snap system.
The look of this ball spreader on its own is impressive, but once you put it on yourself, you’re sure to fall in love right away!
If you don’t mind spending a few more dollars (still less than $30) on a tight-fitting, firmly tugging ball divider, this toy is worth your consideration!
- ✅ Use real leather
- ✅ Adjustable
- ✅ Uses snap system
- ✅ Visually attractive
- ❌ Contains nickel
- ❌ More expensive than alternative options
As noted by some customers, this ball divider may present a bit of a challenge when you’re trying to get it on for the first time. We’d recommend trying it out the first time in a warm environment, so it’s easier to get each testicle in the appropriate rings. Using it in a cold place may prove nearly impossible!
Still, that’s true with nearly any ball divider, so we can’t really hold that against this particular model. For what it is, it looks and works excellently! Our only real complaint is the fact that it’s not nickel-free. If you have a nickel allergy, steer clear of this toy. If not, feel free to add it to your collection!
You should buy the Leather Cock and Ball V-Style Divider if you...
- Love leather
- Need something easy to use
- Love the look
You should not buy the Leather Cock and Ball V-Style Divider if you...
- Don’t want a cock ring
- Prefer stretchy rings
- Have a nickel allergy

More Extreme Testicle Toys
So far, we’ve gone over a lot of great testicle-related toys. However, what if you’d like something a bit more extreme? Don’t worry: we’ve got you covered!
Stainless Steel Donut Cock Ring
Weighing in at an impressive 6.2 oz., this stainless steel penis ring fits around your penis and behind your balls, providing the extra tug you’ve been after this entire time!
Parachute Ball Stretcher
If you’re looking for tugging on the testicles only, this parachute ball stretcher should do the trick! Attach a chain, give it a little tug, or even attach weights—at your own risk—to the o-ring!
Acrylic Ball Crusher
At this point, we’ve moved away from simply tugging and moved onwards to smushing your plumbs flat! If that’s the type of thing that gets you aroused, then this acrylic ball crusher offers a relatively safe, controlled way to play out your fantasy!
Ball Spreader Safety
Like cock rings, a ball spreader cuts into the circulation on your package. The tighter your spreader is, the more this is true. While leaving the toy on a bit over the recommended time likely won’t cause any issues, leaving it on for extremely extended amounts of time could cause genuine issues. We recommend taking a break every thirty minutes to avoid circulatory issues.
How to Use a Ball Spreader
While most ball spreaders look about the same after you’ve put them on, there are a few different ways to put them on. This will really depend on the design of your particular toy. However, we’ve listed a few of the most common methods below.
With this approach, you’ll stick your penis in the cock ring part of the spreader and slide it down your shaft. From here, slip the testicle rings over your balls and adjust as needed.
For some toys, it may be easier to insert your testicles first. You’ll want to attempt this without an erection, as having an erection may make getting the toy on impossible. Insert one testicle at a time into each ring, then quickly stick your penis through the cock ring to secure the fit.
Some toys are only designed to go over your testicles. These are extremely easy to put on: just place the rings around your balls! Depending on the design, you’ll either have to stretch the rings over OR secure the straps.
How to Clean a Ball Spreader
Ball spreaders are one of the easiest sex toys to clean. Literally, all you’ll need is some warm water and a bit of antibacterial soap! We recommend first washing the spreader using soap and water, then wash it again using only water. If your spreader is made entirely of metal or silicone only, you can also sterilize the toy by dropping it into a pot of boiling water for a minimum of five minutes. Once you’re done cleaning and/or sterilizing the spreader, pat it dry with a towel and then leave it out to air dry completely before storing it away. This will prevent any bacteria from growing due to leftover moisture.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
What is a Ball Spreader?
A ball spreader is a type of sex toy that straps or otherwise secures around the scrotum. It features a strap running down the middle of the device, which serves to separate and push the testicles away from each other. These toys may or may not incorporate a cock ring into their design.
