I spent endless time learning about measuring for a chastity cage. The one key thing I learned over the years was that the cage must fit correctly to be comfortable and properly serve its purpose. So, before ordering a Jail Bird, I measured and remeasured. My soft penis measured two inches. It did. Short, but if it made the cage fit correctly, I was fine. Well I got the cage and it felt great. I’ve been wearing it for more than five months with no irritation, unauthorized escape, erections, or orgasms. It fit and it worked. Not really. That whole time my urethra ended up pointing up or to one side. I could sort of adjust it, but if I tried peeing standing up, too often I would spray and cover my pants and the floor. I gave up and just sat down to pee.

I’ve hated that. I was never a fan of public restrooms. I hate sitting on public toilets. I’ve done it, but don’t love it. Last week I contacted Mature Metal, the maker of the Jail Bird. The response surprised me. They said that my cage was almost certainly too long. As you can see by the image to the right, there is room between the head of my penis and the end of the cage. Apparently it is this distance that allows the head to move and  take my urethra off center. So, I made arrangements to shorten the cage. It is boxed up and will mail out today (June 16, 2014). In a week or so, the correctly sized cage will arrive.

The problem for me is that my cock is even smaller than I thought. I know that my flaccid penis is no indicator of how big it is hard (6-inches), but still… Mrs. Lion measured the gap in the cage and got one-half inch as the result. After she unlocked me, I remeasured, this time being very careful not to press the end of the  ruler into my scrotum (Mature Metal wants the measurement along the bottom of the penis from the spot it joins the scrotum to the tip. It came out to 1 1/2-inches. That’s tiny! If you click the picture on the right you can see me in that cage larger and in color as well as me when erect.

I would like to think that my measurement error was an honest mistake. But maybe I pressed that ruler into my balls because it is just too much to consider my soft cock is only an inch and a half. Well it is. So, Mrs. Lion’s big ol’ lion sports a 1 1/2″ dick. Live and learn. The more I look at that image (right), the more obvious it is that I am not filling out the cage. I don’t think that I made it very clear in my measurement instructions, just how important it is that the cage “hug” the soft penis. Contact is needed on the sides and head in order for urination to be simple and for the cage to work most effectively.

Now I know. For the next week or so I will be in my Chinese off-the-shelf cage until my new, shorter Jail Bird arrives. Will you think less of me because my weenie is so small?

    Aren’t we all obsessed with penis size? Too short or to long? Too thin or too thick? Flaccid I’m 2″ long and 1 3/8″ wide, 6 1/2″ long and 1 3/4″ wide when erect. Nothing to be ashamed about, but I am uncircumcised. This made me feel very self conscious when it came to sex. I do not personally know another uncircumcised person. I was so nervous about it, it kept me from dating during high school. I guess my point is, why does size, shape, or appearance matter? Don’t be ashamed of what ya got. Dr. Suess says those that mind don’t matter.
    Being in chastity, finger flexibility and tongue dexterity matter the most anyway. 😉

      Well said! My mother used to say (on a different topic, obviously), “It’s all mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” When I was doing the measurement, I wasn’t really concerned with how my size felt to me, but more that if I ordered the cage incorrectly, I would not be able to wear it. Now that I have been locked up for over five months, my perspective has changed and I better understand the physics of the chastity cage. I have just rewritten the Getting A Good Fit page to reflect my improved knowledge.

    My toy may be a teeny weenie but with a little attention and encouragement it grows tall and proud.

    After radiation and hormone therapy my flaccid penis has shrunk to about 2″, and so much time has passed since I had a “raging” erection, well I have no idea.
