Mrs. Lion is visiting with her kids. They are spread out a bit on the East Coast, so yesterday she had a very long drive to see her oldest. She spent the night there and then drives all the way back today. She’s based at her daughter’s home.
I’ve been comfortably locked in the plastic cage since Sunday afternoon. I’m so impressed with the design of this cage, I sent an email to the maker and asked if they will sell the product with a smooth finish. This will take a certain amount of work on their part and will make providing colors more difficult.
I’m not going to mention where to get this product until it is improved. It saddens me that the male chastity device with the best design is the victim of incomplete manufacturing. My cage is a custom model (1-1/4 in long and 1-1/4 in diameter). This product is 3D printed. The seller sends design files to a public 3D printing company, then ships the finished product to the buyer.
The custom product costs over $300 USD. I investigated 3D printing costs and there is a lot of profit margin in the device. I don’t want o minimize the amount of time it took to revise the cage design to fit my order. I’m sure it takes time. I think that if the price went up $50 and I got a fully finished device, I would be very happy paying the larger bill.
Normally, I would review a device, note the good and bad points and then move on. But in this case, the device fills a real niche in the market. The Holy Trainer Nano is an off-the-shelf competitor. It doesn’t replace a truly custom device. I care so much about this one because it has the potential to be worn through airport security with no trouble. That’s what interested me at first.
When I tried to wear my Jail Bird with a removable plastic seal, I painfully learned it doesn’t work. The cage pivots on the round locking bar. It turns out that the plastic cage is designed with a “track” in the ring into which the cage slides. It can’t rotate. A lightweight, plastic seal is sufficient to hold the cage in place.
OK, that’s great. By itself it isn’t enough to get me to reopen my conversation with its maker. It also turns out that once smoothed, it is the most comfortable chastity device I’ve ever tried. I decided to see if there could be a way to deliver this gem without its sandpaper finish.
I could have done all this in the background and then if I had success let you know. That’s the way I would usually handle this sort of thing. But this time I decided to share the process as well as the outcome with you.
Each time I write about this device, one of our readers reports “fixing” the finish problem with a coat of nail polish. I don’t think that’s a good fix. The polish will flake off the nylon and there is no certification that nail enamel is safe against our most tender parts. No, I’m standing by the idea that if you buy the roughly finished product, you will need to put in considerable time and effort to make it wearable.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
