What Are Cock Cages?

Chastity cages or cock cages are devices that surround the penis and hold it firmly at a downward angle. The body of a cock cage is simply a tube that holds the penis while being attached to a ring that goes around the penis and scrotum.

There are different designs of chastity cages these days and some features may include a hole at the tip to allow for urination and vents to allow for long-term wear and cleanliness.

Now, in BDSM, cock cages can be used for several reasons, however, the main function of a cock cage is to make an erection uncomfortable and even impossible.

Usually, a dominant may have their submissive partner wear a cock cage for many different reasons. Some of them are:

To remind the Submissive of the Dominant’s ownership

Having a physical device that represents the ownership and the control the dominant partner has over their submissive partner is one of the reasons chastity cages are super popular in BDSM relationships.

The dominant partner enjoys knowing that the submissive partner isn’t going to indulge in pleasuring themselves while the dominant is away from them.

Or in other words – the keyholder which is the dominant partner indicates total dominance over the wearer’s sexual activities. By accepting the cage, the wearer surrenders control over their sexual behavior to the dominant partner.

Training or behavior correction

In BDSM dynamics, punishment, rewards, and withholding can play a major role in submissive training. This type of training is typically meant to encourage good behavior and discourage a bad one.

For example, if the submissive partner crossed a clear line drawn by the dominant partner, the dominant partner can then punish the submissive partner and deprive them of sexual pleasure by locking them up in a chastity cage.

The dominant may decide when, where, how, how often, and even if, the submissive will be allowed sexual release depending on the gravity of the situation.

Denial and appreciation of sexual release

Most modern cage designs will prevent wearers from being able to have intercourse, masturbate, and experience orgasms. This practice can also be called orgasm denial and it is one of the more intense plays BDSM partners often engage in.

This can also be used as part of a control exercise in which the submissive must receive the dominant’s permission before masturbating or engaging in any sexual play involving the penis.

Once the dominant gives permission, the submissive is then allowed to experience sexual pleasure, which is said to be stronger and much more intense after a certain period of denial.

How To Safely Use Cock Cages?

Chastity cages are devices that should be used with a lot of caution. So besides following the most important rules which are safe, sane, sober, and consensual, here are a few more things you should pay attention to when experimenting with chastity cages.

Find a design you like

Make sure to find a design you like and you are comfortable with wearing. There is nothing wrong with communicating with your dominant partner on getting the best design for you and this is what relationships are all about – healthy communication.

Therefore, if your partner likes a pink plastic design, but you are more comfortable with wearing stainless steel or black silicone design, there’s nothing wrong with saying that.

You always need to make sure you are comfortable with what you’re doing, otherwise, it is not likely you will be enjoying the play.

Make sure it fits perfectly

A chastity cage is a device that must be properly sized, fitted, and adjusted in order to be secure, do its job, and not risk potential damage to the genitals.

When buying chastity cages, the ring size and spacing are the two most important adjustments you need to pay attention to. A ring that is too tight will cut off blood flow while one that is too loose will not be secure.

You and your dominant partner always need to be very careful with a chastity belt as there has been more than one incident reported of men having to be cut free from a chastity device after losing the keys, due to extreme pressure on the genitals.

Which brings me to the next point:

Always keep spare keys closeby

And I cannot stress this enough! Always keep a pair of spare keys closeby, even if you and your dominant don’t live together, but you have decided that you want to be in your chastity cage for a longer time.

Accidents can happen, therefore, you always need to keep your keys closeby.

Let’s say you just wake up in the middle of the night with pain and even testicles with visibly changed color due to poor circulation, so what are you supposed to do if your dominant is also sleeping and you can’t get a hold of them?

Which, again, brings me to my next point:

Long-distance caging can be dangerous

I have read about long-distance BDSM relationships on numerous occasions while browsing through Reddit, and some submissive partners have gone as far as locking themselves up in chastity cages and mailing the keys to their dominant partners, which happen to live in a different country.

Again, I cannot stress enough about the dangers of this practice. First of all, you cannot leave yourself without a spare set of keys while engaging in this.

Second, you have to communicate with your dominant partner and achieve an agreement that if something that makes you uncomfortable or even causes you pain happens, you will have the freedom to remove your cage at any given moment.

Especially if you and your dominant live in different time-zones, this is a huge no-no and needs to proceed with extreme caution.

Find a reliable partner

One of the most important things when it comes to having a BDSM relationship and experimenting with chastity cages is to find a reliable partner that either knows what they’re doing or they will be willing to learn everything they need to know step-by-step.

Additionally, make sure you are experimenting with someone who will communicate, listen to you, and respect you, and also someone who will know when to stop if they sense you are not being comfortable with what you’re experiencing.

Always stay safe out there and avoid experimenting with potentially dangerous conditions with someone that might not know how to handle themselves in these situations.

4 Best Vibrating Cock Cages

Although there are many standard cock cages on the market and you can typically find these in a variety of designs and materials from stainless steel, plastic, and even silicone, the concept of vibrating cock cages is still very new.

So after I did long-ass research on the subject, this is what I came up with.

Anal Fantasy – Elite Ass-Gasm Cock Blocker

Anal Fantasy - Elite Ass-Gasm Cock Blocker

This fancy cock blocker adds a whole new level of power-play potential compared to a classic chastity cage. Besides having a silky smooth pocket to prevent your cock from becoming erected, there is also the added torture that comes with the deep delving butt plug.

The cockblocker features a sturdy stainless steel ring that adjusts from 1.5 to 2 inches and is designed to hold the silicone cage in place.

The full-coverage silicone sleeve measures 5 inches in length and 1.8 inches in diameter and it has a small opening at the front designed to allow urination, meaning it is perfectly designed for long and comfortable wear.

The butt plug comes attached to the base of the cage and you can pop it in anytime you wish for that extra pleasure or punishment.

The package includes a sturdy padlock with two keys along with three plastic chastity locks.

Doc Johnson – King Caged Vibrating Silicone Cock Cage

Doc Johnson - King Caged Vibrating Silicone Cock Cage

This cock cage by Doc Johnson will allow an erection and even encourage it, so if you are into not being able to achieve an erection, this product may not be the best one for you.

Anyhow, this sleeve is designed with a built-in ball strap and a powerful vibrating bullet to stimulate both the male and female partner during intercourse.

A strategic open design along the shaft of the silicone sleeve keeps direct stimulation while the snug fit of the cage and ball strap tugs and teases the wearer into a raging erection.

The one-speed bullet bit on the top comes with easy push-button control and is designed to stimulate the clitoris during intercourse. It comes with three included cell batteries.

Mystim – Pubic Enemy N1 Cage Vibrator

Mystim - Pubic Enemy N1 Cage Vibrator

If you’d rather be a prisoner to your dominant partner and be deprived of having a decent erection and any sexual gratification, you can take a look into Mystim’s Pubic Enemy line of cock cages that will not only lock your member up for good, but they will also provide a fitting amount of torture.

You’re wondering how?

Well, these seemingly innocent cock cages are designed to provide the wearer with electrical stimulation, so instead of vibrating sensations, you would be experiencing a gentle tingling, strong twitching, or intense pulsating passing through your most sensitive parts.

A metal lock with engraved Mystim emblem and a set of five plastic disposable seals is also provided as well as detailed instruction in seven languages, a matching 2mm long cable for connection to the stimulation current devices, a metal lock with two keys, and ten ownership plates that include the writing “Hands off! This prisoner belongs to ___”

YiFeng – Electro Chastity Cage

YiFeng - Electro Chastity Cage

Very similar and significantly cheaper than the above-mentioned Mystim’s Pubic Enemy, the Electro Chastity Cage by a Chinese manufacturer YiFeng is designed to give your deprived cock a little bit (or a lot) of torture.

Their model is made out of durable yet lightweight polycarbonate and the cage has vented slots for quick drying after cleansing as well as an opening that allows urination.

You can adjust the cage to the adjustable ABS ring, utilizing a latch system that lets you cinch it down without the need of switching between different rings.

Then, once your member is inside the cage, you can then send an electrical current and stimulate it via the conductive silicone within the device.

Additionally to the cock cage and the ABS ring, the discreet package will arrive at your door equipped with three spencers which will help you adjust the distance of the cock cage and ring, one plastic lock used to fix the ring in a comfortable position, one padlock with two keys, five disposable plastic locks, and one lead.
