Thanks so much for your complements! Her and I try to put out as much content as we can.
But yeah, you and I are about the same - you're a little thicker than me and I'm a little longer than you. This is the cage I'm using, but it's a little too long for when I'm flaccid. Other than that, it's a great cage to start with and will last you until you decide to move on to a custom sized steel cage. I'm hoping to have a new one by next Locktober : )
Hey I'm glad you like it! I purchased it from a local shop, but it's this cage:
The base ring is a little sharp with the 90 degree edges, but I've fitted the ring with some really thin heat-shrink insulation and now it's perfect! Longest I've worn it has been 23 days, but my Mistress is determined for us to do Locktober and this cage should be more than suitable for that.
It's the Master Series Captus Stainless Steel Locking Male Chastity Cage, I got really lucky that it fits me near perfectly. I'm working towards longer and longer lock ups for my FWB/KH and she's excited to start locking me longer than the time we just spend together and when we go to BDSM clubs.
I tried both the CB6000 and Holy Trainer knock offs and had similar results as you. My problem is actually the length. My length varies pretty dramatically. 1.5" flaccid to about 7" erect. So my penis would shrink back into the tube when flaccid then would push the entire cage up when it got hard. It's pretty painful when it happens.
I ended up getting a Captus off of amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Master-Series-Stainless-Locking-Chastity/dp/B00DE5HEH0). It was a little more than the knock offs ($50) but it is an open metal cage and dramatically more comfortable. I've gone from 1-2 painful days to 5-7 completely comfortable days. I could easily go 20-30 days, but my KH likes to play. If you go to aliexpress you can get a Captus knock off for about $25 but you have to wait a month to get it.
I got it from a sex shop instead of amazon tho
The Captus is a bit wider than others. Most are 1-1/4” diameter. Some are less. This one is 1-3/8”.
It’s about $30.
My favorite custom maker, MCN, chose this design as one of three semi-custom devices to offer a half-priced $160 cage. He replaces the hinged ring and loose locking mechanism with custom work.
I haven’t seen any off-the-shelf mass market cages at 1.5” diameter. A fully custom Contender at $320 would be needed then.
But you never specified how thick you are.
It seems to be the Captus device.
I too am fairly new to chastity. I've tried both a cb6000 and a Holy trainer knock off. I couldn't wear either for more than a few days. They both caused painful morning wood, sore spots on the base of my penis and testicles and smelled after a day or 2.
I read many people saying to avoid the split rings, but so far I haven't had a problem with them at all. I wear a Captus that you can pick up on Amazon for $50 with prime shipping available (http://www.amazon.com/Master-Series-Stainless-Locking-Chastity/dp/B00DE5HEH0) I've worn it pretty much constantly for the last 3 weeks. There have been a couple of 10-24 hour breaks as my KH played with my cock, but the rest of the time it's been on. Some people have said it's to heavy for exercise, but I run 2-3 miles a day while wearing it. You can also pick it up on aliexpress (http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Chastity-Belt-Men-s-Cock-Cage-Stainless-Steel-Penis-Ring-Lock-Adult-Sex-Product/32235602048.html). If you order from aliexpress, you can pick the ring size but you have to wait a month to get it.
If you don't have any experience with cock rings, you should probably get something that comes with multiple size rings or get a ring sizing kit first. I already know my ring size as I've worn cock rings for years. This one (http://www.amazon.com/INCLUDED-Chastity-Products-discrete-INVOICES/dp/B00B1Y5X1K/) comes with 3 different size rings, so you can find the size that's right for you. Just keep in mind it is chrome plated and you will probably have some rust issues if you shower in it very often.
