A Sex-Proof Display Case For Your Penis

jail bird chastity device

My one inch Jail Bird. Could this be the new standard size for off-the-shelf chastity devices?

Sunday night, with the help of the Magic Wand vibrator, Mrs. Lion finally got me off after 11 days of waiting. I’m still not sure why I had difficulty during this time. But, at least for now, the drought is over. I’m still wild and un-spanked. I have a feeling it won’t be long before both will be corrected. I wonder if I will end up in the locking cock ring or the Jail Bird.

This feels amazing! I love how Mrs. Lion keeps me clean.

Mrs. Lion is still my shower buddy. Truth be told, I can do a lot of the washing myself. However, it’s much more fun when she does it for me. Her penis-washing skill is amazing. Since I mentioned it, she’s been spending extra time making sure my erection is squeaky clean. What fun!

I’m a little surprised that there hasn’t been much recent innovation in the chastity device field. Male chastity devices seem to have stopped evolving. The only possible exception is the Nub. Even that, is really a derivative of the classic, Holy Trainer line of chastity devices.

I’m not sure what I expect. After all, there are only so many containers you can build designed to house a flaccid penis. In my life, the only real innovation has been my discovery that cage length (or tube length) can be one short size, 1 inch long I believe.

Six years ago, cage length was considered critical. The flaccid penis needed to be contained in a cage long enough to allow it to comfortably rest inside. It took me a while to realize that I don’t have a single, flaccid length. In my case, I varied from over 2 1/2 inches to 1 1/4 inches, depending on my body position, temperature, time of day, etc.

I think every guy has a similar experience. I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize that flaccid penis length is probably the least critical factor when measuring for a male chastity device.

My standard, every day device is a Jail Bird. If the cage is longer than my current penis length, the head is free to move off-center putting a bar in front of my urethra. This guarantees any attempted urination will be in messy affair with urine spraying all over the place. The manufacturer of the Jail Bird recommends that the head and sides of the penis remain in firm contact with the bars at all times. They say it should fit the same way a glove fits on your hand. After having my Jail Bird shortened twice, I now have a cage that’s a scant 1 inch long.

It fits like a glove. The only thing visible between the bars is the head of my penis. That took a little getting used to. It’s absolutely comfortable to wear, but it’s a little strange to look down and just see head of the penis. The rest is invisible. From what I’ve read, this view is a little disturbing to some guys. Oh well.

I think this discovery is pretty important. It means that off-the-shelf chastity devices can be sold that will provide a fit as good as the much more expensive custom devices like the Jail Bird.

If you accept the idea that a very short cage works for almost everyone, then there are only two measurements that need to be addressed: The first, and probably most critical, is the base ring diameter. This is the ring that anchors the device. Both balls and the penis are threaded through this ring and then the cage is locked to it.

I’ve learned that the base ring size is also not terribly critical. Most guys attempt to wear base rings that are too tight. They reason that a tight base ring will make escape from the device more difficult. It will. But it will also irritate the area it’s around. A too-large base ring will allow a ball to escape. One that is correctly sized, will feel comfortable to wear long term and successfully contain both balls. According to a few manufacturers, a one and three-quarter inch diameter ring works well for most men.

The second, and probably most critical dimension, is the diameter of the cage. Surprisingly, not much is written about this measurement. The reason for it is that most of us are very similar in size when it comes to the diameter of our flaccid penises. There’s some leeway in this measurement. Most critical is that it can’t be too small. If it is too small, edema (swelling of the flaccid penis) is likely. Urination will also be more difficult. If it is too large, erections get a bit too much of a head start and can result in the cage being pushed out pulling the balls with it.

Most Western penises will comfortably fit in a cage with a diameter between 1.25 and 1.5 inches. Of course, some guys will be too large. However, most of us will fit nicely in a chastity device with a one and three-quarter inch base ring and a cage with a diameter of 1 1/2 inches and a length of 1 inch. When device manufacturers realize this, it should be easy to find an inexpensive device that will work nicely long-term.

I think that there is a certain amount of penis ego tied up in chastity device selection. That’s a little surprising to me since the whole purpose of the device is to remove the penis as a sexual object unless the keyholder wants to free it for some activity. Until that time, it should be a simple, utilitarian part of the body that has the single-purpose of facilitating urination.

I know that all of us get sexually aroused by the idea of the control a chastity  device imposes on us. It’s a really sexy form of bondage. Maybe we have to grow up a little bit and recognize that  a chastity device is not a sex-proof display case for the penis. It’s a sex proof barrier with the single purpose of permitting urination and preventing sexual arousal and satisfaction. Right?

  1. Hi Lion
    Glad to hear you are doing better. I’m working on catching up on my reading. I was curious about your Jailbird shortening. I know you wrote about it at the time, but without going back and searching for the posts I thought you might answer a couple of questions.
    I’m thinking of shortening my cage as well. Not as short as you suggest as I just have too much difficulty getting into the Nub. How long did it take?? I assume you have to send the base ring along with the Jailbird back? And the cost?

    • Caged Lion says:

      Before I went down to 1 inch I had my cage shortened to 1 1/4 inch. It turned out that the 1 inch Jail Bird was no problem. Yes, you need to send your base ring as well when you go for shortening. Since these cages are custom-made, the position of the hole for the lock isn’t consistent across cages. I had trouble getting into the Nub as well. I don’t blame you for being cautious. Once they shorten the cage to 1 inch, it can’t be lengthened.

      Did you try the inexpensive 1 inch Chinese cage? If that worked, then the Jail Bird should be fine. I’m very happy with my 1 inch Jail Bird. Mrs. Lion isn’t fond of the Nub because she can’t really see anything. Good luck!

What do you think?
