A week in the device with no release and time to take stock.
The device is fine so far. Getting erections is a bit uncomfortable, so I have been avoiding lustful thoughts throughout the day and looking for ways to distract myself.
I find, oddly, that reading or looking at blogs and images online doesn’t really cause any problems with that. I get turned on in mild way but I do not actually get an erection. It’s when I think about my wife things starts ‘crunching’ (not literally but it feels like they are about to). When I am with her, this mild pain is delightful and makes her giggle, but she is away at the moment, so thinking about being with her is basically self-inflicted torture. I took a shirt of hers to bed with me last night to remind me of her smell. Mistake.
If I remember to put some lubricant around my scrotum and perineum before I go to bed I have no issues with chafing so far. In the shower, I take the opportunity to move things around a bit to make sure nothing gets ‘stuck’. So far so good. No apparent hygiene issues either and really no problem with going to the toilet. It lines up pretty well.
I have noticed that the main top seam on the cage is more visible than it was. I have read that several users have had issues with the cage splitting, which is apparently quite a big deal if it happens while you have a night-time erection and the excess tissue forces its way through the split, which then closes back on the skin again. Ouch. Next time Michelle lets me out I may do as Mr Allen recommends, and deliberately break the cage at the seams, and then superglue it back again to make a stronger join.
On other fronts, I have noticed that this device is far more gym friendly than the chrome device. My previous wrap-up pointed out that there were quite a few things I could not do in the old device: reclining exercises and the bike exercises were the main issues. Both of these problems are fixed by the new device. I can do a full 15-min bike ride no problems, and floor work is also discreet.
Oh yeah, and I am pretty horny. Sleeping a bit less than I was but nothing like the insomnia that develops if I am not in a device and edge myself. And a bit more energy than normal.
I am experimenting with ways of feeling the horniness in other parts of me, mostly in my stomach, so that it doesn’t automatically cause me to bar up. More of that in another post.
