Lion wasn’t horny last night. We still snuggled for a bit. He’s been very itchy. The dog goes for a bath on Friday so I hope that helps. It’ll still take a few days for the allergies to go away.

After I’d locked him up again, Lion said he thought I’d leave him wild. I hadn’t even thought about it. We’d just started back in with the cage. Why would I leave him wild? I asked if he was sore. He isn’t. Then it stays on.

I’m really not sure how to handle the cage right now. Lion wants it on when it’s off and off when it’s on. Technically he doesn’t need it on. He won’t cheat and he won’t masturbate. He didn’t like the idea of it only being worn on weekends or other times like he wears diapers. I don’t know if he’s trying to test my resolve at keeping him locked up or what’s happening. He’s usually not this wishy-washy. I don’t know if can all be blamed on the allergies.

The thing is, we talk and talk about the cage. He likes it from a bondage point of view and the fact that it seems to keep sex in the forefront. We decided the cage should continue. And then he wants to be out again. I don’t think there’s any need to talk about it anymore. It should be on except in cases of travel, doctor appointments necessitating its removal, and sores or illness. Of course, there may be other instances, but we can talk about it and then he should be locked again as soon as feasible. [Lion — Yes, Ma’am]

“Are we ever going to play or is it just ‘lock Lion up for good'”? That was Lion’s question to me last night around bedtime. Bear in mind he was caged about 24 hours at that point. And he’d had an orgasm the night before. And yesterday I’d teased him by saying he’s “broken” butt could be cured by putting it in the sling.

Poor Lion. He’s so neglected. One day locked away in his new, improved cage and he’s already got cabin fever. Of course I’m making fun of him. He has nothing to worry about. He knows he’ll be unlocked and played with. I’ve already ratted myself out for being the reason we don’t play more. I need to get off my ass. Just because we didn’t play one day that’s no indication of never playing again.

Tonight I’ll offer a play spanking again. Neither of us is sure why he hasn’t wanted one. I’m not sure if I should just do it and hope he’ll get into it as we go along. I’ll probably pick another item to torture him with. I have many. I’m sure one of them will work.

As usual, Lion wasn’t in the cage an hour before he complained about it. Actually he said he was stupid for wanting to be caged at all. I told him he should have thought of that before he spent money to have the cage shortened. He asked if the cage “does anything” for me. That can either mean does it turn me on or does it make me feel power/ownership. I told him it doesn’t turn me on but it’s necessary for him to wear it. Not the answer he was looking for but what can you do?

This morning he’s reported that it’s very comfortable which is good news if he has to wear it. I told him it was good news because he has to wear it. There is no if. He just laughed at that.

Right now, I suppose, there is no real reason for him to be caged. I gave him an orgasm with the Magic Wand last night. So much for making him wait longer when he’s caged. To be fair, he hadn’t been caged for a few days. But that’s no excuse. I should have made him wait longer.

I don’t have a schedule for him. There’s no magical wait time. He likes a four day wait. That’s not to say he always wants four day waits. That would get boring. I like to keep him guessing.

Another oddity last night was that Lion didn’t want a play spanking. He’s turned down other offers of play spankings lately too. Have I ruined his butt? Is he so used to punishment spankings that a play spanking doesn’t hold the allure it once did? Inquiring minds want to know.

I forgot to lock Lion up last night. His sore spot is gone and I wanted to put the cage back on. My plan was to unlock him every day to make sure that same spot didn’t get sore again. However, with his allergies acting up again, he wasn’t up to playing and I didn’t think about the cage again until we were already in bed.

This morning Lion told me the Jail Bird is back from Mature Metal. It’s just in time for me to lock him up again. Now I shouldn’t need to unlock him every night. I probably will anyway. I’m sure there will be a day now and then that he remains caged but, for the most part, he’ll be free every night.

I never really thought about using the cage as punishment. He wants me to make him wait for an orgasm as punishment. But what if I told him he annoyed me so he wouldn’t be getting unlocked? I know he’d have no recourse. It’s not like he can unlock himself. He can whine but that might add time to his sentence.

Sometimes I snuggle up close, grab the cage and lament that I can’t play with him because there’s this barrier. Inevitably he tells me I can always go get the key. If he’s annoyed me, perhaps I could do the same thing but tell him exactly what I would have done if only I could unlock him. Poor Lion. Trapped by his own actions. It’s sad, really.
