(Saturday Afternoon – 2 days after Thanksgiving) We spent a quiet morning watching a college football game and eating pancakes. Mrs. Lion makes wonderful pancakes. We went out for lunch at Jersey Mike’s, a franchise submarine sandwich store that was advertised during the game. Our expectations were high, the sandwiches were meh. Save your money, Subway is better.
It’s been over six months since our lives were disrupted by my surgery and recovery. During this time, depending on how you want to think about it, we have either evolved or fallen back in terms of enforced chastity and FLR with discipline (formerly known as domestic discipline). There are two distinct aspects to this; one of them, enforced chastity, has been on my mind.
The first one is that I’m not currently wearing a chastity device. Mrs. Lion never particularly cared if I wore one or not. She did hold the key and I was never allowed to lock or unlock myself. But it was there at my request. It came off for the surgery and made no sense to continue wearing during the recovery.
During these months, we’ve discussed the device and whether or not it is something we need. We jointly decided it isn’t. But, in some ways I miss it. I like being tied up. Bondage is hot for me. Wearing a chastity device is not as fun as being restrained in our sling, but it has its moments. There’s also my love of gadgets. A device that is locked on me is a very personal sort of gadget.
The devices themselves, have been evolving lately. More and more guys realize that a chastity device shouldn’t “fit” their flaccid penis length. It should compress it. The world is moving the way I went: toward very short chastity devices. After spending quite a bit of time experimenting, I learned that a device that was short enough to keep the head of my penis firmly planted against the end of the device was easiest to live in. My urethra presses through the center opening. Peeing is neat and easy.
Because there is no room for expansion, attempted erections don’t get the chance to move things around. Yes, the head presses against the front bars and will show “grill marks” when the cage is removed. After nearly four years of continuous wear, I can say that a short cage makes a happy caged male.
Off-the-shelf chastity device makers are taking notices. The Holy Trainer nano model has a 1.3-inch long cage. It is about the same diameter. That’s perfect for me. It turns out that the key cage dimension is the diameter, not the length. I’ve tried cages with diameters as small as 1-inch. It turns out that, for me at least, the narrow diameter makes the cage uncomfortable. My measured thickness is 1.5-inches. A cage from 1.25 to 1.5 inches across is fine.
When wearing a device, you may notice that your penis is shortest when you are sitting in a chair. With a properly short cage, the head of your penis will still being in contact with the end of the cage even then. When you wear a short cage, the shaft of the soft penis is squished into the cage. In many cases, like mine, only the head is visible. A properly sized cage, keeps you neatly and safely tucked away.
