General Chat / Re: Can The lockee see if the keyholder
« on: October 01, 2021, 02:50:59 AM »
Yes.  The lockee sees actions performed by the keyholder; eg add 2 resets, add 5 freezes, add 20 reds. 

However if the lock has been marked as hidden then the lockee just gets told that a change has happened... but doesn't know what the change is.

"Can one have emotional burn out"

Most definitely.  But it's rarely long term.

You may also have a mis-calibration as a result of "new energy" high.   You've just come off a long sustained high, from the holiday and all the new things you've tried, and the excitement and the pushing of boundaries.  And now that's over, you're not sure.   (related concepts: "sub drop" and "top drop") It's a lot of work doing that!  You may feel exhausted and uninspired afterwards.

And this is pretty common.  You get into a new thing and it's super sexy and super powerful and you think you can redefine yourself in those terms... and then suddenly "Is that it?  Is that all there is?".   Some people try to push the envelope further and try new things and are always seeking that new thing (heh, sound like a drug addict or thrill seeker?  It's similar!), others settle into this new normal.

So, for example,  "just a ‘thing’ that I am wearing" is normal.  That's how I feel about my cage 90% or more of the time.  It's just there, part of me.  Until that time when I want to play with myself, find it's blocking me and I get a reminder of my place... and that then turns me on (just writing this is causing a reaction).

Porn and chastity memes and similar sometimes give an unrealistic expectation; "locked chaste guy always worshipping his Mistress on the hope of being given temporary release" is a fantasy, not a reality.  Fantasies are fun to play for a while, but when they're over you have to re-adjust to reality.

Husband/Wife, Mistress/Slave, KH/Locked, Top/Bottom... whatever... they're background that help _define_ your relationship, but they're not the whole of the relationship.

You don't have to be horny for each other all the time! 

Heh, some people argue that chastity only really starts when you want out of the cage; until then it's just a game :-)

Overnight erections are natural.  3 or 4 per night is not un-normal.  So overnight cage erections are a consequence.  Some people claim it goes away... it doesn't for me.  My longest lock is over 170 days and I was still having overnight erections.

What helps, for me, is ensuring I pee a lot before bedtime.  Also shaving pubes (not totally smooth, but very short) helps because what wakes me up is the pubic hair getting caught between the penis shaft and the ring and then on an erection the cage pulling forwards and so effectively pulling the pubic hairs.  Ouch!

Without the pain I can sleep through most overnight erections.

What is it about the comfort of an often uncomfortable cage?
Why is it uncomfortable?  Most of the time I forget it's there, until there's the reminder (eg bending over to pick something it... or, of course, the overnight erection).  It may take time to get used to it, but eventually it should just feel natural.

5
Some people have required "something else" when not caged.  e.g. make him go hiking while wearing a pair of panties and when you get home you can lock him up again.

In that way he's reminded of his position, and you're still controlling him.

6
What you're asking is also very common.  Many dominants also have a subby side.  This can also help if there's some overlap between kinks.  My Mistress is similar, and sometimes when she's wondering what to do with me she just thinks "what would I like being done to me? let's do that to him!" and it mostly works :-)

There's also a concept called a "service top", where the person doing the topping is being directed by the bottom.  This idea could be introduced into your bedroom scenes.  You could even use it as a way of gaining rewards ("if you don't make me orgasm twice tonight then I won't do ..."). 

He can even remain caged, using a strap-on, or using his tongue or fingers (or all of the above :-)).

Potentially it could even go further into your fantasies... if the idea of being taken by a masked man turns you on then you could put him in a leather mask (locked on!).   Imagine the scene... you've been kidnapped by a masked stranger, tied up, gagged, and then roughly taken by a larger-than-life dick...   For some couples that type of scenario may work (the mistress gets her subby side itch scratched and the slave gets to please his mistress all without actual release from the cage.

I'm sure you'll find stories and scenarios that would work for the two of you.

As for parties, I suggest going slow; finding a local "munch" (fetlife.com may be a way of finding them) where you can start to get to know the other people in your local area in a "normal" setting.

(Personally I'd wait until post-COVID... but that's just me)

I'm gonna come at this from another perspective.

Why do some people like to go running?  play tennis? Or soccer?  Chess?  Read books?  Listen to music?  Go to the theater?  Some of these I understand (books! Chess!), others I just don't get (running? Isn't that torture?).

Different people like different things; there's a saying "Every Person Is Different" (EPID).

So why is BDSM any different?  Just because it involves the "wibbly bits" and so is taboo to talk about ("shush; it's about sex! Can't talk about that!"... even if there's no "penis in vagina" sex involved, it's still considered sexual and thus taboo) doesn't mean it's inherently different.  Some people like it, others don't.

Almost 2% of people indulge in some form of BDSM ( https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18331257/ ) in a year.  So while this is a minority, it's not _abnormal_.

Why do people get into it?  Many many reasons.  "Dominant at work, submissive outside" is a very common one.  As is anxiety ("am I pleasing my loved one?"); having structure and well defined goals can make it easier and less mentally stressful.

For me, it's both mental and sexual.  I'm relatively senior at my company and have a lot of responsibility.  Instead of being the one who decides what is to be done, being tied down and flogged means I have just one responsibility (safeword if it's too much).  It's also sexual; just the act of my Mistress tying me down causes an erection.  She's joked before, as she's put me in a corset, then my penis is a sign that I enjoy this.

Similarly, chastity.  Paradoxically, the thought of being in chastity makes me hard... which also then makes it hard to put a cage on! 

Some men want to have sex with everything that moves.  Not me.  I get turned on by being controlled.  Being controlled, surrendering myself to someone I trust (literally when I'm tied down and can't escape she has the power of life or death, and I trust her absolutely) is an amazing turn on.

So.. EPID.

Now I do have one caution.  Some people get into this lifestyle because they feel they're unworthy and demand punishment and being demeaned as a way of reinforcing that status.  This isn't healthy, obviously.  But it doesn't sound like your husband is going down that path because "more attentive and interesting".  The positive sides of this relationship can be enforced; if you demand something from him and he does it well then praise him.  The sheer joy of knowing I've pleased my Mistress is good positive reinforcement.  "Carrot and stick"; you can't just be strict, you also have to reward.

From what you've written, it sounds like this is being good for your relationship.  You're communicating more, he's more relaxed, you're enjoying yourself....

This is sounding healthy.

General Chat / Re: How to forget the combination
« on: July 01, 2021, 12:59:09 PM »
I was playing around with an idea to build a steel lock box which is locked with an electro magnet.
The device could fetch your lock status and once it is unlocked the box opens.

This is kinda what I did - https://bdsm.spuddy.org/writings/Safe_v2/

And there's a version of the software that just connects to the API to check the lock state, so you never need to even look at the combination number screen - https://github.com/bdsm-spuddy/esp8266-chastikey-safe

General Chat / Digital Safe
« on: May 18, 2021, 02:38:55 AM »
I've come up with a newer version of my electronic safe, that can be used with chastity apps like this one (or Emlalock).  It takes a cheap ($30) electronic safe and replaces the smarts with an ESP8266 and a few components.  You might be able to build it for $40 or so.  It creates a webserver so you can set the combination (max 100 characters!).

https://bdsm.spuddy.org/writings/Safe_v2/

For people who like "dual locks" then this safe can take both 8 digit codes to create a 16 digit combination.  You'll never guess that!

Interesting for some predicament scenarios.  eg I could lock my corset on at 9pm and run one of these locks... will I be free of the corset, or be forced to sleep in it!

The locked person can also add time if they want to do a 2/9 or 3/10 variant.

Since I'm working from home today, I decided to test it; one locking my corset on, one locking my collar on.  Both with fake locks.  Zoe only caught one of them... but it looks like this was the real lock, and not the fake.

Chase caught all 3 locks.

This looks fun!

General Chat / I think my Lady may have got the idea...
« on: February 17, 2019, 02:17:10 AM »
(Note: "my Lady" is not the person on these forums known as "Lady"; it's what I've called my Mistress for the past 18 years)

She set up a daily non-commulative 1Day with 3G 3R 2Y lock.  That's relatively simple.  Frequently the lock would open and I chose "holder decides".  I've added reds, previously to keep the lock running longer, but they never last 2 weeks.

This past week, I've asked her to be nasty.

Today, 12 days into a session, she was.  +4R, +3Y, +3 Double, +2 Resets, +2 Freeze.

It's her birthday this week... I wonder if she's trying to fake me out, or if she's really gonna go through with this!  The longest I've worn this cage is 30 days...

Today I drew a red, which I consider a win... every red picked today is 8 reds not picked tomorrow :-)

General Chat / Why is it...?
« on: February 14, 2019, 02:48:10 AM »
Why is it, about one week into a session, I start to look at porn and do dozens of short bondage sessions (yesterday I was working from home and did locked in corset all day via a Chase session, locked in maids outfit, handcuffs, mummification, TENS CBT, collared, risk of exhibitionism...)... all the while knowing I won't get relief at the end of it!

I've been doing chastity sessions for many years now... and it's always the same, around the one week mark!

ChastiKey Chat / Re: ChastiKey API
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:50:55 AM »
I've fixed the documentation so that combination shows as strings. Thanks.
Almost :-)  The JSON now looks right, but the description still has "Will return 0 if not yet unlocked" in both places.

ChastiKey Chat / Re: ChastiKey API
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:52:07 AM »
Hmm, https://api.chastikey.com/v0.3/listlocks.php?userID=my-user-id-tag gives a 500 Server error.  The v0.2 entry still works.

EDIT: It appears as if the v0.2 entry has been updated so it includes the "frozen" attribute.

Also the documentation is still listing combination as a number, when it's really a string.

ChastiKey Chat / Re: ChastiKey API v0.2
« on: January 28, 2019, 11:49:40 AM »
The Alexa response was a real call to the API to fetch the data :-)

So far it just calls listslocks.php and then parses the JSON.  It's written in GoLang and just converts the Lock array into a string

e.g.

func parse_api(json_str string) string {
        var chastikey Chastikey
        err := json.Unmarshal([]byte(json_str), &chastikey)
        if err != nil {
                return "Could not understand API results: "+err.Error()
        }

        // We want to look at the chastity session
        s := chastikey.Locks

        cnt := len(s)
        res := "You have " + strconv.Itoa(cnt) + " lock"
        if cnt != 1 {
                res += "s"
        }
        res += ".  "
        for x,y := range s {
                dur := time.Now().Unix()-y.StartTime
                res += "Lock " + strconv.Itoa(x+1) + " is held by " + y.LockedBy + ", and has been running for " + time_to_days(int(dur)) + ".  "
        }

        return res
}


It's not good code, but it works!

Unfortunately I don't think this sort of skill can be published on the Amazon store so it has to be run development mode, which requires users to have some knowledge on how to set up a TLS web server, but I'll publish the code and instructions on configuration.

Whatever you decide to expose, I can add a routine for ;-)
