There is a myriad of different chastity style devices on the market, and since everyone has differing shapes, sizes and comfort levels it is important to give careful considering to any form of chastity device before purchasing. Here we will go through differing chastity devices, pros and cons, and the differences in materials. If you’re unsure about chastity devices, if you’re considering chastity toys and not sure where to start, hopefully by the conclusion of this article you’ll be better placed and more informed in terms of making a decision.
A male chastity device is a device that restricts the wearers ability to get an erection. There are many variants of this device; some will be cages, others will be bent at acute angles, but their purpose remains the same – preventing erections. The prevention of erections means that stimulation of the penis is not accessible, and therefore a man is unlikely to achieve sexual release.
We do hate to blow the secret here, but there are multiple ways in which a male could obtain sexual release, and even climax, despite being subjected to chastity. He could engage in prostate stimulation, or the body will provide nocturnal emissions (wet dreams) to prevent the build of semen and fluid – however in either situation he may be subjected to pain and torment through his inability to obtain an erection through the device. Not all devices are the same, nor should they be considered the same despite them all having the same fundamental purpose of orgasm denial. We’ll begin by exploring some of the materials and the advantages and disadvantages of these materials.
Leather Chastity Cages:-
Most people don’t think of leather when it comes to chastity cages, however, leather is the most accessible of cock cages and some of the easiest and most comfortable to use. Leather chastity cages are considered to be entry level cages as they are both lightweight, and durable, and if something goes wrong then they can be removed during an emergency. Leather chastity cages are not always completely made of leather. What they might use, is a leather cock ring, some leather straps to hold it in place, and then a small steel cage either along the shaft, or at the end of the shaft to prevent erections.
Leather cockrings still leave the penis open to access, and stimulation but they will prevent erections. One of the most common types of leather chastity cage are similar to the Stallion Guard. In this the leather cock cage, will restrain the penis by having leather wrap around the base and the balls to hold it in place, but prevent erections through a locking steel cage that is placed over the end of the shaft, and over the head of the penis. The cage, is very simple, very open and will create pressure on a semi-erect cock thereby restricting one’s ability to obtain a full erection.
Male leather chastity may also come in the form of a belt, which can utilize both a cock cage, and an ass plug which can also be locked in. Whilst leather cages can be used for extended periods of time, we would like to remind people that leather is a porous material and can be difficult to clean. If you’re looking at a leather cock cage please see our cleaning and hygiene section to ensure that you’re prolonging the life of this particular type of cock cage to the best of its ability. We do not want to see you with something that’s going to conk out at an inopportune moment and accidentally release your sub! Take further care for regular inspections of leather devices so that they can be replaced before they break out. Leather cock cages will have a little bit of stretch in them and are particularly useful for people that do not like the idea of steel rings around the base of the penis.
Silicone Cock Cages:-
Silicone was brought out to fill in the disadvantages of leather, whilst still maintaining all the original advantages. Silicone is durable, forgiving and has a slight amount of flex to it. Silicone chastity devices were first brought out in 2009 by Swiss company Bird locked, and since then there have been several variations of the silicone cage. The advantages of the silicone cage is that it is soft and flexible, it will warm quickly to body temperature. Further, owing to the notion that silicone is non-porous it’s not going to absorb any bacteria.
When silicone cages first came out it was hoped that they would be penned as the ultimate in chastity devices and in many cases they are; soft, flexible, conforming and incredibly durable. They come in two variants which sees one type as a solid piece, and the second type with a removable back ring. Silicone is lighter even then their plastic variants, however it should be noted that silicone can be grippy and can cause irritation if the device is too tight, but this can be combated with a light coating of talc powder. In an emergency, silicone rings can be cut with a pair of scissors. Silicone can also be purchased in a variety of unique and fun colors, if you wanted something that was a little more fun and exciting than other designs.
Many chastity devices now come with penis plugs for extra sensations or drain tubes/pee through for long time wear.
Steel Cock Cages:-
Steel is what you think of when you turn your attention to cock cages. Steel is an extremely durable material and probably one of the most difficult to get out. Indeed, there are even steel devices which have their locks hidden to prevent them from being bolt cutter opened! There are differing types of steel though, and it is important to note that not all steel cages are the same. You will find that some steel cages are made from medical grade surgical steel, whereas others will simply use a chrome coating which will degrade over time.
It is important that you research exactly what you’re buying so that you don’t get caught out! There are a wide variety of steel cock cages – some of them will be an actual cage, where others be an acutely angled elongated tube in order to prevent erections. With such a wide variety of steel ones out there, it is important to make sure that you’re getting one that truly stands out and fits your needs. Steel can be a beautiful material to work with, fully customizable, and the end results can be simply stunning. Still will be cold to the touch, it’s not a forgiving material and you will need to pay careful attention to the size to ensure that you’re not causing any harm.
Cock Cages with penis plugs are becoming more and more popular as a result of the extra sensations that they can give. Often a keyholder will demand that her man in chastity masturbate when released with the plug still inserted in the urethra that will give an orgasm often described as
‘Cumming Inside Out’
The materials of cock cages can vary, and each have their own advantages and disadvantages. For example, metal cock cages are the most durable, and the most difficult to get out, but they are considered to be the heaviest so if you’re looking for something that will accommodate an active lifestyle then this is probably not going to be the one for you. If you have an active lifestyle, engage in sports, or even wear tighter pants and want something to be more discreet then perhaps you should consider the silicone cages as these will best fit what you’re after. The selection of a cock cage is an important decision to make, more often than not you’re going to make a few mistakes with them. Have patience and eventually you’ll be able to find the perfect cock cage that best fits you and your lifestyle.
