Fetish 101: What Is a Male Chastity Device?
So you’re curious about trying on a chastity device, or perhaps your partner is asking that you be open to trying one. The concept of chastity is immensely popular in the BDSM universe.
A male chastity cage, also known as a penis cage, penis lock, cock lock, or cock cage is basically a cage for the penis used for fulfilling the need of men with a fetish for orgasm control. Chastity devices prevent men from even getting an erection in order to control their ability to masturbate, orgasm, or have sex.
What does a chastity device look like?
This cage-like device is worn around the head and shaft of your penis, typically supported by a waist harness or testicle ring. Chastity cages are made of plastic or metal and locked using plastic tags or a padlock.
Plastic tag locks are numbered in the order that your keyholder will know whether or not you attempted to tamper with the lock. They’re usually favored by people new to chastity play or those that enjoy wearing chastity cages over long distance so that they can easily remove them in case of an emergency.
Should you choose a metal or plastic chastity cage?
Metal penis cages are more suitable for shorter chastity play sessions in which the wearer and keyholder are together, while distance training and longer chastity lockups work perfectly well with plastic penis cages. Plastic variations are also more flexible than metal ones.
Wearing a chastity device involves securing a ring around the cock and testicles, with the entire shaft fitted inside the cage, and then locking it. These guidelines might differ from one device to another, but you get the gist.
Who holds the key to the cage?
A keyholder is an individual who holds the key to the chastity device, and therefore controls when you can touch yourself, orgasm or use your cock in any way. This individual might be a wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, a dome, or dom.
Do note, though, that you do not really need to have a keyholder to enjoy wearing the cage or chastity in general. Plenty of men, regardless of sexual orientation love the feel of wearing a penis cage beneath their clothes while they go about their daily activities knowing that their cocks are imprisoned in a cage and only they hold the key.
What do keyholders need to take note of?
Controlling the ability of a man to touch himself, orgasm, or have sex is a very crucial responsibility that you should not take lightly. You have to play responsibly within explicitly defined limits and the wearer’s full consent.
Always respect traffic lights and safe words and prioritize the mental, emotional, and physical needs of the penis lock wearer. To prevent chafing or ease it, make sure to apply some silicone lubricant underneath the rings when the cage is worn for an extended amount of time than.
Also keep in mind that ejaculation whether through milking the prostate or plain old masturbation will be needed at some point, specifically following long periods of orgasm denial and teasing to help ensure the wearer’s sexual health.
