lion wearing the heart on chastity device
Here I am wearing the Heart-On male chastity device. It encapsulates my cock and balls.

There are very few surprises left in the male chastity device world. I have to admit the Heart-On is new one to me. As you can see in the picture (Right), it’s a chastity device that covers the full set of male genitals. Years ago, I remember seeing a similar metal device. It must have weighed a ton. It certainly looked brutal to wear. Nowadays, full coverage is achieved by chastity belts. These belts cover the entire crotch. I’ve worn one, and it was fairly comfortable but it did restrict my movement. It also would stop fitting if I gained or lost as little as a pound. Clearly it wasn’t practical.

When I look down, this is what I see. It’s hard to miss!

The Heart On device is 3D printed and made from PLA plastic. It’s lightweight, comfortable, and practical. At first look, it seems large. I guess anything designed to contain my entire package would appear to be. It certainly feels strange when I look down and see this pink ball where my cock and balls used to be (image, left).

I didn’t feel emasculated when I wore this (despite the color they sent me to test). Its shape makes it clear that there is a male under the pretty, pink plastic.

The Heart-On is marketed as a custom device; printed to order, you might say. This model is named the “Contained”. It’s a very apt moniker given that “everything” is indeed contained. It’s sold through the makers’ website heartonchastity.com. At the time of this post, the price for this model is C$249.99 ($191.51 USD). That makes it a little more expensive than a Holy Trainer and less than half the price of a Mature Metal Jail Bird.

Fitting is easy. You only have to supply one dimension: the diameter of a chastity device base ring. If you’ve been wearing a device you know what it is. Mine is 45 mm (one and three-quarter inches). Everything else is standard. Putting the devicd on is very simple: Thread your balls and penis through the hole in the backplate (Image, left). The locking part is on top, and the little hinges on the bottom. As you can see, everything fits nicely in the provided space (Image, right).

front ofdevice
Mrs. Lion put the black ring on separately before hooking the hinge and then sliding the ring into the slot the top of the front.

The device comes with a black ring. You thread your penis through the ring, then slide it into a notch in the front of the device (see image, left). Mrs. Lion put the ring on my penis before hooking the front piece on its hinge at the bottom of the device. She then slid the top of the ring into its socket at the top of the device (Image,left). Then, she gently closed the device being careful not to trap any skin.

Last, she inserted the lock (it’s the same sort of lock a lot of devices use now) and locked me in. She had to do a lot of fiddling around to get the lock to engage. But with some perseverance, she got it into place.

The Heart-On as to drainage holes in the bottom. I covered these during the wash cycle in the shower. You can see how this device fits securely in this view.

The Heart-On is made from PLA, an organic based plastic. The maker uses his own 3D printer to produce the device. He reports that he spends many hours hand finishing before it’s shipped out. The quality of the unit I got is excellent. There are no rough edges and with the exception of the lock, everything fit together perfectly.

It may be a little hard to see in the picture (above left), there’s a short tube that acts like an entrance to the front, penis section of the device. Its purpose is to assure that the penis remains in that front area. The tube assures that urine is directed out the front hole. That way, no pee gets into the section that holds the balls. This is supposed to reduce or eliminate bad smells. I wish I had a transparent device. I would like to see how well this alignment works. The black ring that goes on first and then is suspended from the top of the device positions the penis so that it will naturally fall into the tube designed for it.

I use a  wash bottle with diluted dishwashing soap to clean inside the device when I shower.

With this device, you have to pee sitting down. I was given advice to take my time, and then when done allow any fluid left in the tube to drain out, then put a small piece of toilet paper in front of the front opening to catch any errant drips when I stand up. I routinely wear a pad in my underwear to catch drips from my other chastity devices. The pad saves me a lot of urine spots on my pants.

rinse out chastity device with shower massager
I used a hand held shower-, to rinse out the soapy water. There are two holes in the top and two in the bottom to facilitate drainage.

Showering is similar to what you need to do with any closed tube chastity device. I have a “wash bottle” that I fill with diluted dishwashing soap. I use the bottle to spray soapy water into the top openings of the device. I use a hand-held shower to add water, then holding the bottom tube closed, I shake everything to get nice and clean. Then I let the device drain and I follow with rinse water from the hand-held shower. This appears to do the job nicely.

Like with any enclosed chastity device, it’s important for it to come off regularly for inspection and more thorough cleaning. I would suggest doing this at least once a week.  If you do that, the device is certainly suitable for long-term wear.

bulge in my jeans
I “generic” bulge is visible in my jeans when I sit. When standing, nothing shows.

This device isn’t for everyone. However, a lot of guys who can’t wear chastity belts and want to lock up their entire package finally have an answer. This product isn’t perfect. It hangs a bit low on me and more of my shaft is exposed than I would like. But that’s just quibbling. This 3D-printed chastity device is very well-designed and I find it completely livable. It may show a tiny bit under my jeans when I sit down. (See image, left) However, the shape is an amorphous bulge, not a discernible penis.

It’s easy to put on and take off. Mrs. Lion found this device simple to lock onto me. Once on, it’s easy to wear 24/7. The price is a little steep; but not very expensive for a custom device. The maker offers a lot of options from a spiked ring that discourages pullout, to a different model that allows various “attachments” designed to please a partner without offering any sensation to the wearer.

Mrs. Lion likes the way this looks on me. I prefer a standard cage. That doesn’t mean that this device isn’t a great answer for men who want their balls out of reach as well as their cocks. This is a practical, well-made device. I expect Mrs. Lion will have me wear it from time to time.

Cherry Keeper chastity cage
This is the Cherry Keeper cage with the 3 mm headlock. Note the 3mm “shelf” designed to “lock” the penis head in place.

When we got home from our trip, a package was waiting with my new 3D-printed Cherry Keeper. This one is an off-the-shelf design: the short model with the medium “headlock”. I ordered this one with the “premium” finish. This extra-cost option includes tumbling with ceramic beads to help polish the pieces.

This device is locked with the standard brass inset lock used by a lot of devices including Holy Trainer and many of the Chinese stainless steel cages. The Cherry Keeper does not come with the lock. Fortunately, I have a whole bunch of the inexpensive Chinese devices and I took the lock from one of them. If you don’t have one of these locks and you want to order this device,  you can order the lock from Amazon for about $7 or directly from China for about $8. Thanks to Tom Allen and Mark for these links.

Upon inspection I noticed that the surface still isn’t perfectly smooth. It has a sort of eggshell finish. I’ll let you know after I wear it a while if this finish is a problem for me. I’ve had devices (a custom device from Custom Chastity) with the stock finish. It caused me nothing but trouble. I ended up spending hours sanding the device smooth. Hopefully, that won’t be necessary this time.

Putting the ring on was straightforward. I ordered the 44 mm round ring. This is as close as I could come to the one and three-quarter inch size I like. It fits comfortably as expected. I asked Mrs. Lion to lock the cage on me. We both expected there would be some difficulty getting the head of my penis past the headlock feature. This is a shelf that goes around the base of the cage on the inside. The idea is that it “traps” the head of the penis and prevents it from moving backward. The designer feels this will make pullout more difficult. I thought it would keep the head in place and my urethra centered in the opening.

I ordered the medium headlock. This is a 3 mm wide shelf around the cage. Essentially that reduces the diameter by 6 mm. It turns out this isn’t very much at all. The head of my penis slipped past the shelf with no trouble. As a matter of fact more than the head made it past that shelf. It fits like a standard cage. Mrs. Lion had some difficulty mating the cage with the base ring. She had to do some wiggling and pressing to get it lined up correctly. Once lined up, the locking mechanism slid into place and she locked me in.

Lion's penis in Cherry Keeper chastity device
This is my new Cherry Keeper. It’s the short cage with the medium headlock feature. So far it’s doing a good job keeping my urethra front and center.

As you can see from the picture, my penis fits in this standard device quite well. My urethra seems to stay lined up and the cage is comfortable. The cage itself is slightly longer than my custom Jail Bird. It doesn’t offer any opportunity for illicit stimulation.

Since I’ve only been wearing it a few hours, I can’t comment on whether my urethra will remain lined up or if the cage will stay as comfortable as it is now. Only time will tell. I’m very fond of the way the front of the cage is constructed. It offers me a really good shot at staying aligned and peeing standing up.

I think the next step for me is to try a custom fit. This is surprisingly inexpensive. The designer charges a flat $75 to modify the Cherry Keeper to exactly fit. Getting the cage manufactured again is cheap as well, about $30. As I’ve written before, I’m very fond of the plastic cage I got from Custom Chastity. I can’t recommend them to you because their prices are rather high and the rough finish requires you to do considerable work to make it wearable. On the other hand, the Cherry Keeper is a really good design and is priced very reasonably.

I’ve been in communication with the designer and he has some ideas to further stabilize the cage. He does have an off-the-shelf headlock that is considerably wider than the one in this cage. I’m sure I need one that will better trap the head of my penis. I think that in the end it will cost me less to go for the custom help rather than trying another stock item and finding it not quite what I need.

Anyone who’s been messing with male chastity devices for any length of time knows how diabolically flexible the flaccid human penis can be. I realize that a design that’s going to keep my urethra centered snf my penis safely out of reach, requires a very clever designer. I think the Cherry Keeper stands a very good chance of doing the best job yet.

Fleshlight liner
This is the business end of the new Fleshlight. It’s a heavy mass of rubbery material that when lubed is disturbingly similar-feeling to the inside of a vagina. I like it!

One of the side effects that comes from writing daily posts is that we sometimes seem to be stuck in a groove when new things enter our lives. Case in point: the Fleshlight. We’ve both been writing about it a good deal lately. It arrived Monday afternoon and we got to try it that very night.

I admit that I never gave much thought to male sex toys. Part of the reason is that this category is called “masturbators”. Apparently any toy aimed at penis owners needs that label. Until very recently, the only toy we had that is intended to provide sexual arousal to me is our Magic Wand vibrator. Mrs. Lion calls this toy my best friend.

It’s true. In her hands this vibrator is guaranteed to get me off. She uses it now and then for variety. Sexual arousal and eventual orgasm is almost always created by her hand. I guess that’s my favorite masturbator.

My sex life is different from most. Mrs. Lion lost interest in sex for herself some years ago. As a result, vaginal sex for me is exceedingly rare. The last time we had vaginal sex was in April 2018. Before that it was way back in 2015 (I think. We started keeping records in January 2016.). I’m not complaining. I get a lot of sexual attention and I enjoy every bit of it.

I know that Mrs. Lion tries to think of new ways to arouse me. Apparently, somewhere in her reading she came across the Fleshlight. We’ve both written about it. Now that we tried it, I can report it’s a pretty authentic vaginal simulator.

We were both surprised by its weight. This device looks like an oversized flash light. It has to weigh 2 pounds. There is a strange-feeling, heavy, rubber like liner designed to receive my penis. The particular model I ordered has a smooth surface in the vaginal canal. This was the original Fleshlight.

The liner feels a bit sticky to the touch. Water-based lube is necessary to use this toy. We started out by generously lubing the opening in the Fleshlight and my penis. It slipped in easily and Mrs. Lion began moving it up and down. I didn’t get a great deal of sensation. After a couple of minutes I suggested that we might have used too much lube. She removed the toy and I went into the bathroom and washed off.

When I returned the Fleshlight had enough lube in it to easily slip over me and, as Mrs. Lion resumed, the intensity improved. As she varied her motion and the remaining lube dissipated a bit, it started to feel like I was inside a real woman. It was, to say the least, surprising. She continued for a little while and then stopped.

She resumed using her hand. This made sense since it would be very difficult to be able to edge me while I was fucking this rubber vagina. I found myself blocked. I just couldn’t get past a certain level of arousal. At my suggestion, she put the Fleshlight over my penis and fucked me with it. I remain stuck.

She took it off and tried some more with her hand. It became clear we weren’t going any further. She stopped and we snuggled and enjoyed a touching one another. I don’t think the toy had anything to do with my problem. It’s just something that happens. It could be that my excitement of trying something new got in the way, or it could just be that the moon was in the wrong phase.

We both agreed that this new toy had a place in my sex life. Another Fleshlight is coming on Saturday. This one has a bumpy interior and is supposed to be the most intense stimulator they make.

By the way, the model we used on Monday night was labeled “narrow”. The canal is considerably narrower than the standard model. This was to provide more intense stimulation. The new one also has a narrower-than-normal canal.

Maybe this positive experience will inspire Mrs. Lion to look for other male toys. I honestly have no idea what’s out there. If you’re wondering why we would expend the energy and money for a toy designed to arouse and potentially get me off when we are in a male chastity relationship, it’s simply because sexual stimulation is a nearly-daily activity I get to enjoy. Just because I don’t get to ejaculate doesn’t mean Mrs. Lion ignores my penis.

I’m convinced that this very frequent teasing is instrumental in the conditioning I’ve received. Sex for me isn’t a desert. I think I’m more active sexually now than I was before we started this. However, sex for me does not assure ejaculation. Currently, I can look forward to ejaculating about once a week. I can look forward to almost ejaculating every day, more than once.

Frequent visits to the Fleshlight are probably in my future. Ejaculations inside it are likely to be exceedingly rare. I’m fine with that, of course. It feels really good, perhaps good enough that Mrs. Lion should name it. I guess I have a new girlfriend.

nub penis tube
This is the tiny one-inch Nub penis tube.

While my short test of the Nub isn’t going to yield much detailed information, I am very impressed by how comfortable it is to wear. It’s feather-light and doesn’t put pressure on any part of me. Since the tube isolates my penis from its surroundings (i.e. my underwear) it may actually be more comfortable to wear then going wild. Wouldn’t that be a kick?

It’s entirely possible that for many the device will be too comfortable. After all, most of us like the feeling of bondage that a chastity device gives us. If the device doesn’t make itself known at all, perhaps it’s the same as not wearing one.

When I am wild, I think about how I will miss erections once I’m in my cage again. But when I’m in the cage, I don’t give erections a second thought. They’ve become something I like to get, but don’t miss when they’re not around. Wearing a male chastity device isn’t about preventing me from masturbating. I’m well conditioned not to masturbate on my own. A chastity device is not necessary for this control.

Apparently, Mrs. Lion doesn’t care whether I wear one or not. That means the only reason for me to wear a male chastity device is because I like it. I don’t know about you, but that’s not a reason I like to think about. After all, a good part of my enjoyment of being locked up is that it’s bondage. Bondage implies that someone has forcibly restrained me. That’s why the practice is called “enforced male chastity”.

On Friday night, Mrs. Lion teased me a bit too much. I ended up starting to have an orgasm. She decided not to let it become ruined. So she went right back to work and made sure I had a nice, complete ejaculation. When the smoke died down, I asked her to leave me wild. I’m not sure why I did. She commented that she was going to lock me up again. But, she agreed to leave me uncaged.

My motivation for being released was that I wanted to see if it wouldn’t make it easier to get a full night’s sleep. It turned out that I slept all the way through the night. I’m pretty sure that being wild and nothing to do with it. But I did get a full night’s sleep.

penis inside Nub chastity device
During the day, things got a bit twisted. My urethra no longer lined up correctly with the opening.
(Click image to view larger)

I’d like to try again with the 45 mm (one and three-quarter inch) base ring for the Nub. Perhaps this afternoon we can try it. Wearing the Nub with the larger ring was fine in terms of everything staying in place. There was some rotation of the device which put my urethra at an angle with the opening in the tube.

I wonder if the larger base ring allowed extra movement and the resulting misalignment (See image, left). If I can get the smaller base ring on we can solve the mystery quickly. If the problem isn’t related to the base ring I’m not sure why this is happening.

In general, chastity devices and my locking cock ring seem to want to rotate 10 or 15° to the right. This happens with all of them. I can’t explain it. It doesn’t cause any trouble with the other devices. It will be a problem though with the Nub.

I have to admit that I’m fascinated by this new device. I’ve never experienced any cock and ball hardware that is so comfortable to wear. Even though I spent a lot of time at my desk, there was no pinching or adjustments of any sort needed. My only concern is that my urethra is going out of alignment with its only opportunity to expel urine.

One of our readers expressed concern about keeping his Nub clean. Admittedly I didn’t wear it very long, but it was easy to make sure the device was completely clean when I showered. We have a handheld shower massager and it has more than enough power to thoroughly rinse the inside of the tube.

If I can lick the “traveling urethra” issue, the Nub could end up being a perfect male chastity device. The only metal in it is the very small locking mechanism buried in the connection between the tube and the base ring. I’m sure that this little bit of brass will not trigger TSA metal detectors.

Yesterday afternoon, I asked Mrs. Lion to lock me up again using the one and three-quarter inch (45 mm) base ring. I had a much easier time getting it on. I suspect that when I tried it Friday evening I may have been a bit excited, and that made it more difficult.

This time, Mrs. Lion had much less trouble getting the tube on me. Given the unusual shape of the ring, it takes a bit of skill to put the device on with a properly-sized ring. Now we’ll find out if the smaller ring has any effect at all on keeping my urethra centered in the opening. I suspect it will.

Obviously, I need to do a lot more testing before I can wholeheartedly support this product. Since it’s available at low cost ($30) from a Chinese vendor, you may want to test it too. Please let me know how you’re doing if you try it.
