Almost everyone who wears a chastity device eventually gets hard inside the chastity device. To me it feels like the cage is being pushed up and just the tip of my penis is held in the cage. It also feels like my balls are being pulled tight as the cage rides up and pulls over my scrotum. If I reach down, I feel a hard area behind the base ring. This reinforces my feeling that the cage is just riding up and moving away from my body. I’ve read other guys write about how they need to find smaller base rings to prevent this movement.
I have to admit, I was sure that my entire cage just rode my erection and the cage was just over the tip. Since my cage is only 1 1/4″ long, it felt like only the head was being covered. I decided to get a more objective view. After Mrs. Lion teased me and I got soft, she put me back in my cage. However, I was still turned on and felt myself getting hard again. This time I was in the cage. I took a picture of my “hard” cock. Then, the next morning, I took another of it when soft. The picture below shows what I discovered.
My entire penis remains inside the cage. The head and shaft swell and push against the bars, but the entire shaft is contained. The only visual difference is that tissue behind the base ring swells. That’s what feels like an erection. If you look at the image, it’s clear that the base ring didn’t move at all. My scrotum tightened naturally; males generally do that when aroused. My entire cock is safely locked away.
It’s this illusion of the cage riding up the erection that prompts many males to obtain smaller base rings. This is a terrible move since almost invariably the smaller ring causes discomfort. It’s clear by this evidence that there is no reason for concern. The cage absolutely prevents erection. Even with a cage as short as mine, none of the shaft can escape and allow me pleasure.
If you are new to enforced chastity, this is an important observation. If you think your device is just riding up your erection, get out your camera and take some pictures. The camera never lies.
