What is a Chastity Cage?

Chastity is a fetish where men and women wear a chastity device, either of their own will or under the direction of a dominant partner. Chastity provides people with a unique form of power play, as the person wearing the chastity device has to completely give up their ability to engage in sexual intercourse and masturbation.

There are different chastity devices available to use, with chastity cages being one of the most popular choices.

Chastity Cage Basics

One of the first things you should know about a chastity cage is how to assemble one, which means you need to know about the different components that make up a chastity cage.

Base Ring

The base ring will be your first point of contact with a chastity cage. The base ring fits over the penis and testicles, and serves as the foundation for the cage component. Your base ring will have some way of connecting to the cage, this can differ depending on the design and functionality of your chastity cage. Here are some examples of how a base ring can be connected with its cage component:

  • The cage uses pins provided to close off the base ring as well as connect the cage to the base ring, with a hole in the middle pin to lock the cage with a padlock. This is commonly seen in resin and silicone cages.
  • The base ring and cage have respective parts that perfectly fit each other, for example the base ring has pinholes and the cage has integrated pins. Once the cage is connected properly, the locking mechanism will be able to be used properly. This is commonly seen on metal cages that use internal keys.

The base ring needs to fit you properly in order for it to function correctly and safely. Picking a base ring that fits you properly will allow you to wear your chastity cage comfortably, without having to worry about the following considerations:

Proper Function

If your base ring is too big, your testicles can easily slip through it which means that your chastity cage can easily be removed without needing the key.

Safety Concerns

If your base ring is too tight, you may experience discomfort and pain. In extreme cases, a base ring that is too tight can cut off circulation to the penis. This can cause irreversible damage to the penis and medical attention should be sought if you start to notice discolouration or strong pain.

Cage Component

The cage component attaches to the base ring by being fitted over the penis, keeping it trapped while the cage is being worn. This prevents the wearer from using their penis for penetrative sex and masturbation. The cage also prevents the wearer from becoming fully erect, which can cause them to become more submissive as a result of being pent up and desperate for release.

Once the cage is attached to the base ring, it can be locked using the locking mechanism that the chastity cage has, such as padlocks, internal locks, screw locks and integrated locks that are built into the chastity cage.

Who Can Wear Chastity Cages?

Chastity cages are designed to fit around the penis and testicles of the wearer, meaning that only people who have a penis will be able to wear one. Chastity cages are usually worn by people who want to completely submit to their master as a part of BDSM play, but there are cases where they are worn to help wearers overcome a masturbation addiction.

How Long Can You Wear Your Chastity Cage For?

As long as the cage is comfortable and you don’t experience pain or other bad side effects, you can wear your chastity cage for as long as you want. Some cages feature an open tip at the end of the cage component which will allow the wearer to use the toilet without having to take it off.

If you plan to wear your cage for an extended period of time, you will still have to take it off occasionally to properly clean both yourself and the cage. Bad hygiene can cause grime and bacteria to build up, which can cause bad odours or even infection in some cases where the cage hasn’t been cleaned for a long time.

What Are Chastity Cages Made From?

Chastity cages can be made using a variety of materials, with the most common ones being resin, metal and silicone.

Resin Cages

Resin cages are lightweight but firm. They are a nice middle ground between metal and silicone. They are more fragile than metal and silicone however, which means they are the most likely to break.

Metal Cages

Metal chastity cages provide you with a heavier, sturdier product that will guarantee chastity. They are a great choice for wearers who enjoy the extra weight serving as a reminder of their chastity, or for those who are concerned that a resin or silicone cage won’t get the job done.

Silicone Cages

Silicone chastity cages are lightweight and flexible. They are a good choice for people who want the extra flexibility that silicone provides, or for people who want a lightweight cage that they’ll forget they’re even wearing. Silicone cages are not a good choice for people who experience strong erections however, and are the easiest type of cage to physically sabotage due to their softness.
