Important Things About Locktober 

Despite Locktober being a very straightforward event, there are many different ways for you to go about participating in it.

Traditional Locktober

Locktober traditionally involves getting your favourite chastity cage, locking yourself up and enjoying the rest of the month in chastity. Make sure you choose a cage that you’re comfortable in as you will be locked up for 31 days in a row. If you are new, consider a silicone or resin cage that you can go to the toilet in as they will be more flexible and comfortable than a metal cage.

Lonely Locktober

This is for men that are single or for men that have a partner that isn’t interested in chastity. When participating in Locktober, you may need some extra help to ensure that you stay locked for the whole month.

If you think you might cheat during the month, you may want to consider getting a self locking box with a timer. Say your last goodbyes to your keys, set the timer for the rest of the month and then lock the box.

If you know someone who knows that you are participating in Locktober, you could ask them to be your keyholder. This is better than a self locking box as you can get your keys immediately in case of an emergency, without having to break into the box.

There are also apps that you can use to assist you during Locktober. Have a look and see if you find any that intrigue you and give them a try!

Locktober For Your Master

If you have a master or a dedicated keyholder, you can dedicate your locktober to serving them. If they are willing to, you can offer to go above and beyond being locked up and show them how submissive you truly are.

Here are some ideas for what you can do to serve your keyholder while locked up:

  • Do chores for them like cleaning their house, washing dishes, folding clothes
  • Give them special treatment, like a massage after a nice hot bath
  • Embrace your sub role, going out of your way to please them in the bedroom

If your master wants you to participate in Locktober, it is the perfect opportunity for you to show them why they are lucky to have you as a sub!

Tips For Newbies

Staying locked up for a day can be difficult, so think about how challenging it will be to stay locked up for a whole month. If you are planning on participating in Locktober, you will need to practice being in chastity over longer stages of time.

As you will be locked up permanently over the whole month, you will need to get used to wearing your chastity cage during your everyday life. Make sure you can wear your cage comfortably if you’re an active person, and that you have appropriate clothing that doesn’t make your cage obvious.

While Locktober mandates that you stay locked up for the whole month, don’t feel like you have to stay locked up for the whole month if you are new to chastity. It will be a challenging experience that will push your limits, so if you can’t stay locked up you can learn from it for next year.

More About Chastity

Knowing more about the basics of chastity will benefit you during Locktober.

Choosing the Right Chastity Cage

There are many types of cages out there, so make sure you find one that you think is perfect if you plan on participating in Locktober. You will need to make sure that it is comfortable for you to wear long-term, can use the toilet and clean yourself while being locked. Metal cages are heavier and inflexible, so you may want to try resin or silicone chastity cages as they are usually more comfortable.

Getting a Correctly Sized Cage

A cage that doesn’t fit properly is not only uncomfortable, it can be dangerous too. A cage that is too loose will not fit properly and may not function properly, as it can slip off while wearing it. A cage that is too tight will feel uncomfortable to wear, and can cause injuries as it will restrict blood flow to your genitals.

When you put on a chastity cage that fits perfectly, it will fit comfortably and you won’t have to worry about it slipping off or becoming painful to wear.


If you hadn’t heard of Locktober, now you have! If you are interested in giving it a try, make sure you have a comfortable cage to practice with and see how long you can stay locked up for. If it’s your first year participating in it, don’t feel too bad if you can’t last the whole month as there is always next year.
