Cock Cages: What You Need to Know

What is a Cock Cage?

A cock cage is a type of chastity device worn by men. It encloses the penis either partially or completely.

When you put a cock cage on the penis will be flaccid, and the cage should only be slightly larger than the penis. If you start to get an erection, the growth of the penis will be restricted and it will stop you from getting a full erection.

How Are Cock Cages Made?

Most cock cages are made in either one or two ways.

Hinged cock cages are one complete piece, where the ring and the enclosure are attached to each other. When putting on or removing the cage, you unlock it, and the enclosure can swing away, freeing the penis.

This kind of cage can pinch your skin if you get the angle wrong, so take extra care of where the hinge is before attempting to put on or remove this kind of cage.

The other way a cock cage will usually be made is with two separate pieces. The entire enclosure will come away from the ring when unlocked, letting you put it on in two separate stages. First you position the ring, then put the enclosure over your penis, and lock the two parts together.

Many people prefer this kind as they can position the ring around the scrotum and penis much easier without the enclosure of the cage getting in the way.

Different Types of Cock Cage

There are a lot of different kinds of cock cage to choose from. While they can be very different from one another, most of them can be grouped into a few types.

One simple way to group them is by how much the cage covers your penis. Some completely enclose the penis, leaving almost nothing showing. Some only partly cover the penis, with more open space. And others are much more open, surrounding the penis with rings rather than a solid enclosure.

There are a few outsiders as well which can be any kind of enclosure. A good example of this is an electrostimulation cock cage. These have wires built into them, and are able to give your penis gentle shocks at the command of your Mistress.

There are also various materials a cock cage can be made out of, and each one will feel different than the others

Why Wear a Cock Cage?

Wearing a cock cage can be done for both physical or psychological reasons.

The physical reasons are much more obvious. The cock cage stops you from playing with or touching your penis. Without access to it, you’ll find it near impossible to reach orgasm, leaving you at the mercy of your keyholder.

Psychologically though, there are many more aspects to wearing a cock cage. You can wear a cock cage during a relationship, which can serve a number of purposes. It may help your partner to trust you more if they worry about you using your penis while they aren’t there. It could be part of a power scenario, where the woman wants to take control over her man. Or even be a deep fantasy of the man, and submitting to their partner can help them enjoy this fantasy.

Even if you aren’t in a relationship, there are still reasons to use a cock cage! You can still enjoy the same realisation of your fantasies, and simply use a keyholding service or even entrust the key to a close friend.

Maybe though, you’re just curious! You’ve heard about cock cages and wonder what it would be like to wear one. That’s fine too, and is just as good a reason as any to wear one!

What Does Wearing a Cock Cage Feel Like?

Learning about how to put on a cock cage, and why people wear them is all well and good, but most people are probably more interested in what it’s actually like wearing them. There’s a lot to cover here.

One of the first things you’re going to notice is that something is on your penis. It sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised how noticeable it will be. Not only is your penis going to feel heavier, but it’s quite simply going to be bulkier and take up more room in your pants.

This won’t last forever though, and the more you wear your cage the more accustomed you become to it. In fact, some men get so used to wearing a cage that they claim to feel naked without it!

After you’ve got past the initial feelings, and got more used to the cage, some men experience what is often described as a “bondage cuddle”. Having the cage on makes it feel as if someone is touching or stroking your penis, which can be quite arousing. This can make the first few weeks of wearing a cage quite difficult, as you adjust to the chastity lifestyle while constantly dealing with a lot of arousal.

A strange thing that many men notice, is that as they wear a cage for longer and longer, and don’t touch their penis, other areas of their body become much more sensitive. This is like blind or deaf people, whose other senses become stronger to compensate. You might find that touches or strokes to other parts of your body like your neck, back, thighs and stomach begin to feel extremely nice and arousing instead.

These are just a few examples of the things men feel while wearing a cock cage. There are countless stories online, and each man is different so he can experience different feelings. If you’d like to find out more, do some more reading on the subject and you’ll get a better idea if it’s something you might enjoy.

Does a Cock Cage Prevent Erections?

It might sound obvious that a cage around your penis would restrict you from getting an erection, things aren’t quite that simple.

If you’ve found the right cock cage, and measured correctly, then it should be slightly larger than your penis. This gives it room to move around inside the cage.

When you start to get an erection, you’ll find that you fill up your cage much more (which is why we buy a bigger one). The erection will push the cage away from the body, so the base of the penis will be exposed.

Some men might claim that it’s painful to get an erection while wearing a cage, but usually this is because it’s a bit too small. At most you should feel the cage “tightly caressing” your penis, kind of like when a hand is gripping it, but it shouldn’t be so tight that it causes pain.

How Long Can You Wear a Cock Cage?

Cock cages, unlike many other sex toys snd devices, are able to be worn for much longer periods of time. Some even like to wear cock cages “permanently” and can spend year after year using them.

Even in permanent chastity situations though, it isn’t like the cage never gets removed. You should always take cages off for regular cleaning, and to inspect both the cage and the penis for any signs of damage or wear.

Other than the expected safety precautions and maintenence though, you can basically wear a cock cage for as long as you want!

Are Cock Cages Painful to Wear?

A very common concern men might have before they use a cock cage is whether or not it’s going to be painful. Again there isn’t a clear, one size fits all answer to this question.

The first point of pain many men might experience is during erections. They find that as their penis becomes harder, they fill up their cage so much that it bulges against the cage. This can be very painful.

When this happens, it usually means that your cage is a little bit too small. Having something with a bit of extra room will give your penis room to grow but still keep it contained within the cage.

This can be particularly bad during the night, where men are in a lot less control of their erections. While you can get by with careful positioning, and sleeping in a certain way, many men will simply just remove the cage at night.

You aren’t going to be doing anything with your penis while asleep anyway, and taking the cage off lets you remove the chance of a painful erection (or even rolling over and ending up a painful position). In the morning you can put the cage back on.

The other very common cause of pain for men wearing cages is chafing. In particular, the ring section of the cock cage is usually quite tightly fitted around the scrotum and base of the penis. As you move around during the day, this will twist and move, rubbing against your skin.

If you leave this alone, it will usually lead to chafing and skin irritation where the ring sits.

An easy solution to this is lubricant. Regularly adding a small amount where the ring touches your skin will allow it to move much more freely without friction, reducing the chafing it causes. Some people even like to use moisturising cream instead, as this treats the skin underneath and gives the ring some movement at the same time.

Keyholding Services

Keyholding services are designed for people who still want to enjoy being locked up, but don’t have someone who can be their Mistress or keyholder.

Most cock cages will come with a set of tags, which can be attached to your keys and have an ID number on them. When you register with a keyholding service, you send them one of your keys with one of these ID tags, and they will keep your key safe until you ask for it back from them.

This takes all the temptation away from you, as they will be in control of your chastity periods.

Keyholding services often also interact with you regularly, filling the role of a traditional Mistress or keyholder.

As always though, you should keep hold of a spare key and put it somewhere safe. That way in an emergency, you’ll still be able to get the cage off.
