Risks?
« on: August 06, 2018, 06:01:06 PM »
I once read somewhere about the danger that your penis possible can shrink when being locked up in long time chastity. So far I have only tried some short time session, longest lock up like 2 or 3 days...
But I'm afraid to go longer because of this...
Has anyone of you ever heard of something like this? Or even experienced it self? Aren't you guys afraid of shrinking your penis?

shrinking is not a good word. your body will take some habit and lower the blood flow.
Since you're unlocked, make some jerk off and the blood will rapidly flow again  ;D (and probably not only blood)

The risk is called atrophy and it's really only something for long, long term chastity.

If you're getting out of your cage at least once a month and getting a full erection, you don't have much to worry about.

If you're into long, long term chastity then the decrease in size probably isn't unwelcome.

1) some typical short time risk of chastity devices:

  • if you do not keep clean, you might get some bad smell soon, especially in closed plastic tubes
  • especially cheap devices may not be stainless steel and contain nickle or other materials that cause allergic reactions
  • if you do have a cheap device with bad/rough surfaces, you will get sore skin soon, especially with ring around testicles
  • if that cage and ring or the does not fit really, you might get sore soon because of the friction and abrasion on skin
  • skin needs to adapt a bit to that new "prothesis", if you overdo wearing times right from start, your skin might get sore
  • you might be unable to get a full night of sleep because a certain pressure wakes you up every few hours
  • your partner might really like that locked toy.. and suddenly wants to keep you in it for much longer times then intended

2) long term risks
  • all of the above, especially that thing about getting sore skin
  • your body will adopt to that chastity device. that means it will "learn" over time to adjust your erection. and over time you will slowly loose the ability to fully become erect for some time
  • your penis is not only a blood operated thing, it is a muscle too. and without regular training it will shrink a bit and degenerate temporarily
  • permanently wearing a tight front shield or something that covers your testicles can lead to overheating them, especially in summer. Which leads to a temporary infertility

And what I do know from a friend who was locked up real long times by his Wife-Mistress (no erection for months..):
Temporary shrinking and being unable to erect your little now free friend is not gone within minutes, not even days. It may take some time and several training units to fully recover into old shape. But there seems to be no real inevitable "permanent damage" from chastitiy devices if you keep clean carefully.

(And especially that temporary infertility due to testicle overheating can take 3 to 4 weeks to fully recover your sperms, so you should keep that in mind with your family planning).

No, feli_hh, the penis is not a muscle.  There is no muscle tissue in the penis at all.  It is almost entirely a spongy material that expands and firms up when it's engorged with blood.  It does not atrophy; it does not degenerate.

It's true that your erections will be weaker after a long time in chastity, which can look smaller, so some people think it is smaller.
However, this is simply your body which has discovered that trying to get fully erect is useless and possibly painful, so it stops trying to do it.
Given some post-chastity time and retraining, though, your body can figure out that erections are possible, just as easily as it figured out they're not possible.  Once that happens, your erect penis will be the same size it was before your lockup.

I'd like to take it slowly, see how far I can go. After my recent lock up short of 7 days it took a while to get things going.

Longest session was 122 days. No ill affects, no shrinkage. Yes it will take a few days to get back to full sail.
A kinky, bi, mostly sub guy in search of friends, dommes, doms, and playmates. A love interest into this would be ideal, but won't happen.

Ja, The penis is not only that thing that is outside of your body, there is also the root of the penis inside your body. And here, in the root, the human penis has 4 muscles inside the perineum (between scrotum and anus). Two of those muscles are situated right around the shaft and are mainly used to clean the uretha canal and you can feel them working when ejaculating, two other muscles are on the side of the penis root and their purpose is (besides some anal functions) to compress the penis root and keep the blood from circulating back into the veins, so that pressure can build up in those spongy parts you mentioned, leading to an errection. And not using or training those two main muscles in your perineum for a longer time can lead to some kind of temporary impotence, even with blood rushing into your shaft, no big pressure will build up, that blood will flow back into your body mostly. but with some training you will regain this ability to use this muscles again. Also, with those first mentioned muscles around the shaft becoming untrained, your penis will be a little bit more "inside", looking smaller. But there is no real "penis growing smaller", yes. It just looks like this. And it is not permanent. And: actually you can train those muscles, even if chastitized. Those exercises are called "Kegel exercises".

The only real risk in chastity thus is bad smell, skin irritation and infection or some uretha infection if you do use plugs. And that risk can be minimized by hygiene.
