I have been reviewing male chastity devices for more than 20 years. I thought it might be fun to look back through my adventures with these devices. A lot has changed over the years. When I first started reviewing devices, I had a frenum piercing which turned out to be handy. One of my first devices was a tube secured by the frenum piercing. It was built by Lori and her partner. She is still in business and her devices have improved.
This first one was incredibly heavy. That wasn’t helped by the fact that I didn’t understand how to measure correctly. The device was too long and put painful pressure on my piercing. The piercing was the only connection to my penis. This was the first device she made. Fitting instructions were sketchy and my measurement was amazingly wrong in terms of penis length. I asked for a device 4 inches long, when the proper measurement would have been 2 inches or less.
This was one of the first custom-made male chastity devices available. It was expensive; about $500 in 2000. Aside from the obvious stress it put on my penis, it was difficult to put on. Trying to align my piercing with the pin that had to go through the device took a long time.
Another device, fairly typical of the time was made by a guy named Remy. He was the original owner of the chastitytube.com domain. His device was made using plumbing parts. The tube was a plastic fitting and the base ring a pipe clamp. He dipped both in a rubber compound. No sizes were available. It was surprisingly comfortable to wear.
In the 1990s a fantasy chastity story gained enormous popularity. In fact, devices based on that story are still being made. The story was Kali’s Teeth. The heroine had a partner who like to cheat. To stop him, she created a chastity device that was a tube lined with very sharp points. It was locked over his flaccid penis and was small enough so that he would be cut if he tried to pull it off. When he attempted to get an erection, the pins would pierce him painfully.
This story caught the imagination of a lot of guys interested in enforced male chastity. It’s still very popular. However, now enough of these devices are actually being made so that people who are interested actually believe this really happened. One device, was cast out of a flexible plastic material. It was called the MCD, which stood for Male Chastity Device. It was cleverly made and secured by a nylon tie.
I found it fairly comfortable to wear when soft, and miserable if I tried to get an erection. It wasn’t terribly secure. Pullout was a little uncomfortable but certainly possible and even easy. It was inexpensive.
One of the most significant events in male chastity device history came with the creation of the CB 2000. The first version of this device was made by gluing together acrylic rods and rings. What was most significant was that it came with a set of varying sized base rings and spacers to modify the distance from the base ring to the cage. The cage itself was only one, standard length.
It was nicely priced at about $175 and shipped as soon you ordered it. It’s inventor designed it for use as a weekend chastity play toy. It sold very well and before long the inventor could afford injection molds for a much more polished version. This line of devices is still going strong. It has had many imitators. You can buy exact copies of its current devices from Chinese companies at a small fraction of the US price.
Cages come into their own
The devices I’ve shown so far represent a sort of evolution in the small, mostly ball capture devices. At the same time these were being produced, there was a market for full-scale chastity belts. Most of the manufacturing was done in Europe. Belts are still reasonably popular there. One exception was Access Denied, a Long Island-based company. Access Denied went out of business in the early 2000’s with the sudden death of its owner.
wire becomes King
Thanks largely to the Internet, more and more men learned about male chastity. It was only natural that the supply of chastity devices would meet demand. Devices made from stainless steel wire and narrow strips of stainless steel sheeting became more available.
Initially, only a small number of companies in Europe and the US produced these devices. They were all custom-made. Mature Metal, is one of the largest American metal chastity device makers. The Jail Bird is their most popular device. They’ve been making it for many years. I got mine in 2014. Learning to wear it was an adventure.
The device was always comfortable. The big problem for me and many others was the fact that the urethra would drift to one side or another and when urination was attempted, the spray would hit the bars and make a mess. Many men dealt with this by sitting down when they had to go. I realized that I had a cage that was too long for my flaccid penis. After two downsizings, I ended up with a cage measuring just 1 inch long (see picture, above left)
Meanwhile, industrious metal shops in China discovered this market and began offering a wide variety of chastity devices at bargain prices. In the beginning, most of the devices used hinged base rings. These rings were very uncomfortable to wear because the slight opening where the hinge was located caused irritation.
By 2018, China began making devices using the same basic technology as Jail Bird. They also began offering a larger assortment of cage sizes. They actually offered one for less than $50 that fit me as well as my Jail Bird.
3-d printing enters the scene
As early as 2016, people started developing chastity devices using 3D printing technology. This was facilitated by the fact that there are a number of large companies that will accept an image file and convert it to a 3D object at a reasonable price.
The big advantage of a 3D-printed male chastity device is that it can be altered to match anyone’s measurements simply by modifying the computer design file. The earliest attempts weren’t too successful. The first 3D-printed device I got wasn’t really well-designed for my anatomy. A couple of years later, things got much better.
I purchased a device from Custom Chastity. It was quite expensive. The device itself fit perfectly. It had a major problem. The finish as it came off of the 3D printer was like sandpaper. It irritated me to the point that I couldn’t wear the device. The company was far from cooperative. Custom Chastity is the only maker of chastity devices I would strongly urge you to avoid. Anyway, I hand sanded the device myself and made it smooth enough to wear.. I didn’t like spending several hundred dollars for a device I had to finish myself.
Evotion produces a unique line of male chastity devices. They started off printing devices for men with penis piercings. The devices are held on by the piercing. More recently, they created a device for those of us without piercings. The measurements they ask for are very different from those other device makers want.
The device itself is in three parts: the base ring, the shaft sleeve, and the head cover. I imagine this design was spawned from the piercing-required devices. They, of course, would only have two parts that locked together. Mine has three because the base ring needed to be added.
It turns out that this device is very comfortable and keeps my urethra perfectly aligned so that I can use the toilet standing up without any concern. That is amazing! The shaft sleeve has a ring at the end closest to the head. This ring prevents the head from slipping backward even if the shaft shrinks. That makes this device uniquely independent of the current state of the penis.
Most guys who wear chastity devices only have them on part-time. Male chastity is a wonderful sexual game. Those of us who practice it full-time have discovered new depth to our sexual relations. The array of different devices is amazing.
