When I mentioned putting Lion back in the cage, I forgot about his physical therapy. Of course, I could do it on days he doesn’t have physical therapy, but that seems like a lot of work. For now, at least, he can remain wild. [Lion — I doubt the device would show under my clothes.]

And I said we’d spend more time holding hands even if we weren’t playing. Buzzzzzz. We didn’t last night. Our evenings are strange though. I come home, make dinner, we watch TV, Lion snoozes, I clear the dishes and take a shower, Lion snoozes, I watch TV and play on my iPad, Lion wakes up and it’s time for bed. That’s very generalized, of course. Lion’s snoozing isn’t constant. But the nights just fly by. And I haven’t been feeling all that well. Plus I had to do the laundry and change the bed. Those aren’t really week night chores.

Tonight, I want to go home and snuggle under the covers with Lion. I’ve been cold all day. Actually, I’ve been cold since Thursday. I’m usually hot. In fact, more often than not, the reason I’m naked along with Lion is that I’m too warm to wear clothes inside. I definitely don’t feel well and being cold is a dead giveaway.

I’m determined to edge Lion tonight. That’s assuming he’s receptive to the idea. It might be too soon after his orgasm. He usually needs time to recharge. If he’s up to it (wink, wink) I’ll play with him. I’m not feeling bad enough to give up on an edging opportunity. We need to get back on track with something.

If nothing else, I could shove the small nJoy up his ass and we can snuggle. Best of both worlds. Well, maybe not the best, but it gets him some sort of action even if it’s not weenie action.

[Lion — My (big) cat naps are rarely more than 30 minutes. I really wish I could stop taking them. They make it difficult to get to sleep later. However, apparently there’s nothing I can do to stop them. I do hope Mrs. Lion feels better. When she gets a cold her symptoms drag on for ages. She rarely get sick enough to go to bed, but rarely feels well enough to do normal things when she is ill. I on the other hand, collapse into bed massively sick for a week and then emerge feeling fine.]

Sunday turned out to be a very good day. Aside from having the day with Mrs. Lion and enjoying doing things together, Mrs. Lion gave me my first orgasm in two weeks. That may not sound like a big deal but it wasn’t that she made me wait this long, I simply lost interest and was unable to even get close to an orgasm. Magically, on Sunday night after a lot of manual effort, Mrs. Lion gave me an orgasm. It was great.

I have to admit that I was worried. Sex was in the background for me. On an intellectual level I knew that I should be very horny and thinking about activities that turn me on. I wasn’t. I’m pretty sure that everyone who told me this was due to the stress of the recent health issues I’ve had as well as moving, were right. These problems are just not going to go away. I’m going to have to learn to compartmentalize them so that I can put them away when it’s time to have fun.

Mrs. Lion said that she’s been thinking about putting me back in a male chastity device. I have mixed feelings about it. I know it will make a lot of day-to-day activities a little more difficult. I’ll miss unrestricted access to my penis. Of course, I don’t get a choice. I’m not sure how wearing the device will impact my physical therapy. I suppose it won’t, though there will be a risk of being discovered.

As I’ve written, I just finished measuring for a new Evotion male chastity device. While doing it, I was reminded how many of us overestimate our penis length. Part of this size error is caused by concern that a cage that is too short will somehow be uncomfortable. Another is interest in leaving some space for “expansion”

Instinct tends to lead us to make a little more space because we reason that too much space is better than a device that won’t fit because it’s too small. I get that logic. Ironically, the opposite is true when it comes to male chastity devices. Too short will actually fit better than too long. The logic is simple: If a male chastity device is too long, even a little too long, the tip of the penis will sit back a bit from the end of the cage. This may not sound important, but if the penis is not firmly pressing against the end, the urethra will wander and urinating will become an adventure.

The best fitting devices have the penis in contact with the sides and front of the male chastity device at all times. This can be a little tricky to measure. Most of the time, the penis will be a bit longer than it is at its shortest length. I found that the easiest way to get a proper measurement is to sit in a straight-backed chair with your back firmly pressed against the chair back. Your penis should look very short, almost the way it does after a cold swim. This is the perfect time to measure.

The people who make the Evotion device say that exact measurements will yield the best results. They ask for two penis length measurements: one is the length of the glans (head). The second is the shaft length, measured along the top, from the back of the glans to the body. Other device makers, like Mature Metal, want a measurement from the very tip to the back on the bottom where the shaft of the penis meets the scrotum. Both measurements should be taken in the sitting straight position. In the case of the standard cage, like the Mature Metal Jail Bird, I subtract about a half-inch from the measured length of my penis. This left me with a cage that would be 1 inch long.

I was pretty nervous when I ordered this very short cage. In fact, it’s the shortest cage that Mature Metal can make. I decided to be brave and order it. It’s a perfect fit! My penis fits inside its little prison like a glove. Everything stays nicely in place. Erections never have a chance to start. The Evotion male chastity device that I am getting (the Orion), comes in three pieces: the base ring, a shaft cover, and a third piece to cover the head of the penis. The device requires two locks to put it all together. I’m not entirely sure how specifying a shorter-than-actual shaft length would affect the device. So, I ordered the device using careful, exact measurements all around. We’ll see how that works out when it’s delivered.

No matter what male chastity device you are having made for you, it’s critical that you keep the shaft length either accurate or shorter than your actual measurement. Six years of experience has taught me this is the golden rule of chastity device measurement.

All it took was a three foot length of rope to “cure” Lion. I rummaged through a box until I found it yesterday. I didn’t tell Lion. He didn’t need to know until I was ready to use it.

I don’t think I got his balls tied very tightly, but it was enough to make him very hard. And he stayed hard. It still took a long time to get him to the edge. I was concerned if I “just” edged him he would lose it again. I didn’t necessarily want to give him an orgasm, but traditionally, when he’s broken, I give him an orgasm to clear the pipes. Out with the old, in with the new.

Lion was quick to point out that it had been two weeks. True. I’d been more than willing to give him an orgasm. He was the only thing standing in the way. This time, however, if it’s a few weeks, it will be my doing. I’m going to get him to the edge if it kills me.

I’m fairly sure he won’t want any attention tonight but we’ll snuggle and see how it goes. I’ll play with my weenie and the boys to see if there’s any life left in them. At the very least, we’ll be close and my ministrations will feel good. I’m going to make a real effort to be closer to Lion even if we’re not playing on any given night. Unless one of us is feeling bad enough to not want any touch, we should at least be holding hands.

I might even break out a cage and lock him up. I found my safe so I can keep the key secure. You know how Lion likes to unlock himself.

Not.

I’m glad Lion isn’t broken. I really like a hard weenie.

Mrs. Lion and I tend to think very much alike. The underlying issue that we want to resolve is often different, but the actions we are considering are generally the same. In her post yesterday, Mrs. Lion wrote about becoming stricter. Actually, she acknowledged that she ignores it when I snap at her, or more correctly, growl. She also acknowledged that she snaps at me, but doesn’t follow up with her paddle. Her snaps are so mild that I usually miss them entirely.

Her solution, is to summon the energy to punish me when I growl or when I do something that she was previously snapping at me for doing. I’ve only been writing about her needing to put her paw down for years. Maybe finally, 3.0 will actually do it. She has perfected her spanking to the point that it really means something to me. Now, perhaps, she will focus on the way I behave when I interact with her.

I know that a good number of our readers believe that the best way to cure my lack of sexual responsiveness is to make me wait longer for an orgasm. There is a large grain of truth in that, up to a point. In the past, we discovered that after I waited a certain amount of time without edging, I lost interest in sex. It was actually harder to get me hard (See what I did there?) After such a wait, my hormones shut down when they know there is no sex in sight.

That’s one reason we set up our agreement that I would be edged at least once every other day. That kept my motor running and made longer waits more difficult. We seem to have forgotten that. Mrs. Lion suggested that maybe the way to handle my lack of interest is to lock me up and not let me out for anything for several days. I’m pretty sure that won’t work. However, locking me up and letting me out for frequent edging with no hope of an orgasm, could get things going again. This is one case that makes sense to let me know the minimum amount of time this teasing with no possibility of orgasm will go on. I’m not saying that at the end of that minimum wait I will finally get to come. Oh no, this is where Mrs. Lion’s fondness for surprises comes in. After that minimum, she can make me wait as long as she wants and surprise me when she finally decides I’ve had enough waiting.

Strictly speaking, the male chastity device isn’t required for this. However, it does strongly emphasize her control over even the smallest amount of arousal that I can have. That adds fuel to her frequent edging. It becomes my only opportunity to be hard. I’m not sure that this is the answer. For all I know, tonight (Sunday) I will have a glorious Fourth of July orgasm. I never know. That’s a good part of the fun for both of us.
