In my last post, I explained why chastity devices get me hot. But there’s a problem. Well, a series of problems really.
Some of the devices just aren’t that sturdy. Others are hard to keep clean. Still others are horribly expensive, and if they don’t fit properly, you can’t get a refund.
I’ve been thinking about getting something along these lines-
They both seen pretty secure. The 2(d)ni (the pic on the left) also has a bar to hook a PA to, which is a bonus for me. It looks like it’d be easy to maintain hygiene with, too.
I also looked at a cage from Steelwerks-
Again, the PA attachment is a plus. But I’ve got a few problems with this design. First off, it looks like it pivots (judging by the pics) and would allow access to the underside of the cock. (I could be wrong, but it’s hard to tell from the pics.) When I have access to that spot underneath at the base, I can bring myself off. The S-screw also looks like it could be opened with a pair of awls and a little fidgeting. Even if it can’t be, if the locking system is totally tamper-proof, what happens if the relationship ends? You can’t just snip a lock off and move on. And they charge $100 for the special key, which looks like something any entry-level machinist could bang out in five minutes. Plus, this device is close to $1000.
There are some issues with all three of these, as well as with most other devices out there. With some devices, I can get off while wearing it. Kind of defeats the purpose. I can orgasm while flaccid, so the design is important in preventing this. Another problem is sizing. Most cock cages are offered in different sizes, but how can you be sure you have the right size? Do you measure while hard or flaccid? How can you be sure you have an accurate measurement? How much wiggle room should you leave? A few companies offer an in-person sizing session as part of the purchase; they measure and get the proper device for that person, like a tailor. I like that. It pretty much guarantees a good fit.
Maybe a way around this problem would be to offer a sizing kit for sale. It would just be some cheap plastic tubes and rings to decide which of the sizes works best for that person. The price of the kit would be refunded with the purchase of any device. That way, the company wouldn’t lose money, and customers wouldn’t have to pay extra just to get the right fit.
As much as t&d interests me, these basic problems keep popping up, preventing the experience from being as intense as it could be. The simple fact is that cocks are different. Size, shape, proportion, how much they grow, etc. So there is no one-size-fits-all solution. But there’s also no way to know for sure if a certain device will work without actually taking an expensive risk and buying the device. There’s no way to take one for a test drive. Because of that, I think the companies that make chastity devices lose out on some business.
