On rings, dangly bits and belts
« on: October 17, 2019, 04:05:32 PM »
As a newbie to enforced chastity, I started searching for chastity belts on the internet, only to find that the vast number of devices on the popular sites were not (belts, that is). Almost all used some kind of cock ring or clip to secure the device to the user. "They must obviously be better than belts," I thought, so I bought one, and then another, and so on. I've now been through several of these devices and have decided that they all rely too much on a very weak link – my dangly bits.

Dangly bits are the primary means of securing the device against the groin and the danglier they are, the less effective they seem to be. Dangle doesn't just vary from person to person, it varies with temperature. The device may fit well in the cold of your bathroom, but after a night in a comfortable bed, there's so much dangle that the device moves away from the groin so the morning woody grows between groin and device and tries to tear your dangly bits from the body. I mean, why would anyone designing any type of security device use the most delicate, sensitive parts as the crucial cog in their security unless they are into S&M? (If that's your thing then fine, but it's not for me or my partner.) Until now, I've never outlasted the morning woody.

So I've broadened my search and come across yer actual chastity belt. Yes, just the same kind of design used throughout their doubtful history. There aren't many about but there are a few, even on the budget sites. Nowadays, a wire cable sits around the hips with another cable between the legs keeping the device securely in the right place. Unless you are so fat that your hips are hidden, this must be the most secure way to attach something to the body.

This design also fulfils another need of mine – discretion. When I am seated in a low chair, most cages give me the appearance of having the very erection they're supposed to prevent. Having now tried a belt, I'm finding it smoothes away almost every bulge (although there's still a stud just below my belly button).
 
Because my dangly bits are not involved, attempted erections are no longer painful – more like the kind of constriction one might expect from wearing, say, a corset. I am now even surviving the morning woody and my partner's teasing is fun, not agony. (She's now printed a pussy onto a waterproof label and stuck it in place, giving me the appearance of having a vagina!)

I have difficulty believing that I am unique in my experience, so my question is, since they seem so much better, why aren't there at least as many chastity belts as devices using cock rings?

Please post a pic !  Not a « product pic » but one with the sticker, preferably being worn.

No pic, I'm afraid. You'll just have to use your imagination, which is probably rather better than the real thing.

Having reread my comments on this post and the previous one, I thought it might be helpful to post a fuller review, as it's not all roses with the belt I purchased:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33043021360.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.4f3c1c31vdOpVm&s=p&algo_pvid=52148509-079f-46e7-994d-12d5a594cf52&algo_expid=52148509-079f-46e7-994d-12d5a594cf52-6&btsid=e8353d29-afc1-4dd7-a16f-6d4d3342aec0&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_6,searchweb201603_52

I've briefly mentioned the design in my post above, and you can see it in the link. The first problem was that this supplier provided no instructions at all, and whilst I could just about lock the padlock in place whilst I wasn't wearing it, I found it impossible to do so whilst wearing it, even with my partner's help.

After attempting this several times over a number of days, I was about to return it to the suppliers but had one last try. By a pure fluke, I found the knack, which I mention here in brackets, in case you have the same product with the same problem. (You need to lay the shank of the padlock sideways in the slot on the top of the stud, and then rotate the shank over the top of the stud so that it encircles the stud. Then rotate the padlock so it is in the conventional shank up position, when you can lock it.)

I managed to work out how to reduce the size of the belt to fit me, but instructions would have made that far easier. I bound the loose ends of the steel cables in adhesive tape which seems to work OK.

It's quite difficult sliding the cock into the tube, since the groin plate makes it difficult to access and see. I know some people use a stocking to pull the cock into such positions. I have found smearing the inside of the tube with a body cream to lubricate it, and then tying a slip noose in a piece of string, slipping it over the head and then using the string to pull it through works.

Once it's all in place, it's not going to come off. I find it generally comfortable to wear, and attempted erections are not painful. It can pinch a little where the groin plate meets groin, and some similar devices cover the edge of the groin plate with plastic, which is probably better, although they are generally bulkier devices. I do think it's a shame that this otherwise discrete belt has a protruding stud about where the belly button is, which can appear through clothing.

The security is reasonable as the whole of the groin area is covered, although it suffers the same defect I've experienced with every other device I have ever bought – that it's possible to pull out the penis when flaccid by slipping a finger onto the top of the penis and working it backwards and forwards. Anti-pull out devices just don't seem to work for me (and I am not having a PA).

With this device, I can depress the stomach in order to squeeze a finger beneath the groin plate and reach the top of my cock. However, my partner has found a fix for this by tying the end of the string used to pull the penis into the tube to the bottom of the device to prevent pull out. Trying to do this now, simply tightens the noose in the string, making it painful and even more difficult to withdraw. At the end, after unlocking the device she can cut the string with scissors. If you're doing this on your own, you could wrap the string around the device beneath the cover which would probably be as effective, but not require you using scissors on yourself in such a delicate area.

So in summary, after some teething problems, I am quite happy with this low cost device. I'd recommend it to others. It could be made better by: Providing instructions; Covering the edge of the groin plate with plastic; and Finding a better arrangement for securing the device which doesn't produce a stud projecting from the area of the belly button.

I couldn't say for sure why cages are more popular than belts but I think choice, cost, and size is probably a big seller. I had a belt once. Years ago. Wasn't cheap but also wasn't expensive like a custom one. Probably cost about £150 ($195). This was when cheap knock off cages weren't as easily attainable as they are now. The range of devices were a lot more limited.

Anyway, the problem I found with the belt was that it was not discreet. At some angles you can see questionable bulges. It also caused so much discomfort around the waist and between the thighs where the padding wasn't quite covering the metal edges. It wasn't something I could wear long term. I never purchased a belt again after that.

Nowadays I'd much rather spend less on cages and buy more of them to find ones that are comfortable. I don't buy them for security anymore, but comfort. After dabbling with chastity for probably 20+ years it has turned into more of a will power thing for me with the keys often being in my pocket. Even if I had no access to the keys I'd still find a way to escape them if I wanted to.

If belts were as 1. cheap, 2. had a lot of options available on ebay, and 3. had pictures that you could look at tell if you could clean easily with them on then I'd probably purchase the odd one or two. From the one you've posted above, cleaning looks like it might be a pain. It probably isn't, but if that was my choice or 20 different cages that cost less, some of which look like cleaning would be a breeze then I'm going to choose the cage.

Please don't misunderstand my tone in this message. I'm not saying belts are a bad choice. Just trying to explain why I think cages are more popular than belts at the moment. There seem to be a lot more choice available with cages, the size of the cage often makes it easier to be discreet under your clothing, and price.

Thanks, Kevin

It's really interesting getting another take on this, especially from someone with so much experience. I think the issue of cleaning is a particular issue which I hadn't really addressed as I haven't worn the belt for longer than a day without removing it to shower. I am getting a container to spray soapy water inside the device after urinating, as it can get a bit smelly after 24 hours.

As for the price, I paid £37 for mine from AliExpress, which I think is a bit less than I paid for one of my earlier cages. I think you highlight part of the problem with belts – not many people buy them because there isn't a lot of choice, and there isn't a lot of choice because not many people buy them. My post was perhaps an attempt to say, "Actually, belts are quite good. Have a think about buying one." For me with my limited experience, this has been the most comfortable and discreet chastity product I've had so far.

And perhaps your dangly bits are a lot firmer than mine, so you don't have the excruciating pain as the morning woody tries to tear them off!

Best wishes
