What (and Why) Are Cock Cages?

Male chastity—the act of men avoiding or inhibiting their sexual desires—is a huge turn-on for guys seeking submission or building up to a much more explosive release later on. If you’re thinking of something like ‘No Fap November’, in which males don’t masturbate (or at least try not to) for the entire month, you’re not even in the same ballpark. No Fap November is undertaken by guys who think that not ‘giving in’ to masturbation will sharpen their mental abilities or help them exert some kind of self-control on their lives. Not so with male chastity. Male chastity is part and parcel to their desires and is in some cases the entirety of the sexual experience.

what are cock cages

Male chastity can be as simple as not wanting to, or not being allowed to, orgasm until the right time to do so. That right time to do so can be decided on by the one who is undertaking their vow of chastity, or in many cases by their partner who has mandated this time of abstinence. And while coming to an agreement to not orgasm for a set time sounds a little challenging to some, that’s easy mode compared to the extent of some chastity regiments, in which the male isn’t even allowed to get an erection until their partner says so.

And how would a guy stop himself from getting an erection for a long period of time? This is where cock cages come in. 

So, what’s a cock cage?

A cock cage is exactly what it sounds like—a cage that goes over your dick. It provides a metal frame for the shaft and head of the penis, and usually a ring at the base that your cock and balls go through which, when closed, locks the cage in place.

Why do men wear cock cages?

Quite simply, it is to make them unable to get erections, thereby fully withholding from pleasure until they or their partner chooses to allow it. The partner in this case is the dominant, called the Keyholder, because they literally have the keys that can open the cock cage.

Some wearers can even go months at a time wearing one, taking it off only when their dom tells them they can take it off. In the meantime, while their cock is caged, the wearer will be constantly aware of the cage’s presence, making it a very prolonged lead up to eventual release. Oh, and wearing a cock cage often means the wearer needs to sit down to pee while it’s on.

Okay, how do I get started?

Very slowly! Before spending your hard-earned money on a real cock cage, which can run you anywhere from $200 – $3,000, start by simply not masturbating. If you’ve gone through a whole No-Fap November without touching yourself, then consider yourself ready to start experimenting with the real thing. Pursue the offerings of beginner’s cock cages and see which ones fit your unique dimensions. Then, try wearing it for an entire day, wearing it overnight and under your normal clothes to get used to it.

Before handing over the keys to your Keyholder, make sure to establish ground rules regarding the amount of time you are willing to wear the cock cage and have the Keyholder work within that time frame. Establish a safe word in the event that you absolutely must remove the cage, but most important of all, make sure there’s a lot of trust and communication in your relationship before you go locking it up!
