Preview Of A New Device

From what I can tell, most guys who practice enforced chastity have a very strong interest in hardware no matter how long they have been caged. Obviously, I am aware of the device I wear. It’s locked on me almost all the time. But I am fascinated with new ways to keep my penis out of my hands. So when I see something new, I wonder how it would feel to wear it.

When I come across a new device I look at everything I can find written about it. If it looks interesting, I’ll order it. Over the years I’ve acquired quite a few cages. Since buying the Jail Bird, nothing new has cropped up; until now.

I don’t want to go into too much detail yet. The maker claims the device is made of surgical nylon, a very good choice for something in contact with delicate skin. It looks to me that the device is first printed on a 3D printer, then a mold is made and the nylon final product is cast. I haven’t been able to confirm any of those details.

The offered designs are mostly tubes. I would expect the same issues with them as there are with any other closed device. Vent holes notwithstanding, any tube, regardless of materials, is challenging to keep clean and odor free. The other challenge of any “plastic” design – yes, nylon is a plastic too – is the high coefficient of friction between the base ring and the skin. To make matters worse, plastic rings tend to be rather wide, which increases the friction.

There are two things about this new find, assuming it meets the claims it makes, that make it stand out. The first is that it is available as a custom device, made to the measurements of the wearer. This is the first plastic, airport-safe device I have seen with the custom option. The price for the custom device is about half what the metal makers charge.

The second unique benefit is that all devices they make, including “off the shelf” are available as a matrix (I think that is the resin output of the 3D printer) to test before committing to the nylon device. It’s a full size model of the final device that can worn and tested before committing to the final product. Adjustments are possible. The matrix costs a bit extra on a standard device and comes free with a custom cage. This is truly great.

The reason I’m not going into any further detail is that aside from charging PayPal for my purchase, I’ve got nothing else to show for the purchase. Once things move along more, I’ll post updates and finally provide a full review. I’m a long way from saying we have a great, new find. My hopes have been raised. I’ll provide more information about the maker as well. Stay tuned.

    One thing to consider with any chastity device and TSA is that the millimeter-wave body scanners *can* see the device, even if it’s all plastic. I’ve been using TSA-Pre for some time, and that helps because they (nearly) always use the older-style metal detectors; metal – particularly non-ferrous metal (brass) – up to the size of a few coins is generally ignored. (Not always, though – I’ve been clocked for even the tiny lock on a CB-5000. I believe that the threshold sensitivity of the machines is adjusted depending upon the current threat level.)

    All that considered, I’m not sure that it really makes that much difference any more. I was locked in my Lori tube (over a quarter-pound of stainless steel) while my wife was out of town, and I received an emergency call from a customer in Nebraska (I’m near San Francisco). I mentally said “Fuck it” and headed off to the airport. I told the TSA agent I had a “fairly chunky bit of body jewelry that I couldn’t remove”, so when I squawked the metal detector he just gave me a cursory pat-down and sent me on my way. Same story on the way home.

    Another time the tiny lock in the PA-5000 also failed the metal detector, so they sent me through the full-body scanner. There’s no way that the device wasn’t visible, but I received the all-clear. This happened both directions (that trip was to Canada, where they’ve just recently started using the millimeter-wave devices).

    So it seems that the TSA has now been clued in about chastity devices, which sort of indicates that they may be becoming more main-stream; perhaps they’re becoming the fuzzy handcuffs of the 2010’s (one can hope, anyway). I was fully prepared to describe and discuss the devices candidly, including dropping trou if necessary, but it wasn’t, and I don’t think I was just lucky on either of these trips.
