It seems to be a natural human reaction that as soon we’re told to not do something, we instantly find it more appealing. Red buttons, hot plates, orgasms…
Chastity devices can be used by couples, individually and as part of a Dom(me)/sub relationship. For some, chastity is used situationally. However, for those who integrate it into their lifestyle, the 15th February is not just ‘the day after Valentine’s’ or Single’s Awareness Day, but International Male Chastity Day.
Now in its fifth year, Male Chastity Day started as a conversation between friends. Haven’t heard of it before? We don’t blame you! This isn’t the sort of celebration that card shops fill their shelves with so don’t expect to find it between the ‘Be My Valentine’ and ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ sections.
Historically, chastity was predominantly used by women to keep her “pure” and virginal. Now, it’s more commonly used by men and within the fetish and BDSM community. Used for sissification, humiliation, orgasm denial or to demonstrate commitment, chastity forces the man to surrender his sexual freedom.
But it’s not all bad! Unable to access his penis, the wearer is encouraged to explore other avenues of pleasure. It also helps him to focus his partner’s arousal and their orgasm, which can heighten intimacy.
Secured with a padlock, the key-holder can decide when, where and how often the wearer gets to enjoy sexual release. When this eventually comes (pun intended), the anticipation and built-up frustration leads to a deep, explosive, out-of-this-world climax.
Types of Chastity Devices
Holding the penis at a downward angle, cock cages make getting an erection incredibly uncomfortable and virtually impossible. Often made from stainless steel or plastic, cages can be completely enclosed for more extreme use or vented for hygiene.
To secure the cage in place, it might come with a standard padlock and key. Alternatively, you can use single-use locks. These can be particularly helpful when travelling as they are undetectable in airport metal detectors, and can also be individually numbered – so your Dom(me) will know if you’ve removed your cage prematurely!
Chastity belts are designed to be comfortable yet restrictive enough to prevent full access to the genital area. Giving the key-holder complete confidence, belts can be secured with a padlock.
