Monthly mass trends/challenges of abstention have now become a very big thing. In religion we have the likes of Lent and Rammadan where in modern culture we have fully adopted Movember where guys do not shave for the whole 11th month of the year and develop a horny moustached look also Dry January where after the indulges of alcohol over the holiday period we try and go without it right through the first month of the year. There are of course many other monthly things to join in with and one of the most popular recently has become Locktober. As you have probably guessed it means you are to abstain from any sexual activity for the entire month including jerking-off, blow jobs, playing with toys etc and if possible you should attach a male chastity device…the reasons and benefits we will get to later.

With chastity devices there are two very widely held misconceptions and just plain untruths.

1 Chastity devices came into being when medieval knights went away to fight in the crusades in the Middle East to stop their wives and daughters getting a good shafting in either of her available holes whilst they were away. This total myth has been perpetrated in many films and comedies but is simply not true as there is no record of such devices existing before the 15th Century and long after the crusades had finished. To be totally clear they began and became popular in the Renaissance period not in fact the Middle Ages.

2 Chastity is associated with women and the chastity belts made often of metal are to prevent a woman being unfaithful. True, this is how they started but over the last century male chastity has far outstripped that of the female equivalent. In fact, nowadays the chastity industry for men is about 8 times the size of that for women. They now come in every shape and size and are still metal but just as often a more comfortable plastic and are currently entirely associated with BDSM, sometimes with a heavy dose of control or ownership. Also, according to the huge Chastity device industry about 45% are used for self-chastity rather than the more famous partner or master control type set-up we are used too. By far the most popular is the entire cock and ball chastity set.

Female chastity has an obvious scenario through history to prevent women from screwing around behind a guys back but male chastity has very different origins. With men it comes from the historical belief that masturbation causes mental health issues which resulted in many devices being produced between the 18th Century and 1930’s where the idea fell out of fashion. It was then picked up by the straight and gay fetish worlds and became intrinsically linked to BDSM where the more popular belt has been superseded by the smaller cock and cock plus ball cages with locks, fastenings or the ever-popular padlock.

Probably every master/slave, male and female or male/male relationship that practices chastity has their own set of different rules almost impossible to summarise here. Basically, at the route of it all is control and total submission and of course complete management of your orgasms or lack thereof. The basic principle of stopping you getting erect or if you do you get some pain or there is nothing you can do with it is highly erotic to doms, tops and masters (and therefore subs)….the click of the padlock can become hugely addictive knowing that you are back under the thumb and all sexual freedom has gone.

There is a huge choice of type, material, size and of course price in the chastity market with see-through plastic ones and pink ones to push home the feminizing aspects of cock control have nowadays become increasingly popular as the metal ones lose ground. Basically, there is something out there perfect for every guy, woman & Trans person depending on your needs from just simple short time play to many months of submitting to a keyholder. There are very fancy bespoke expensive ones but also excellent ones at all your sleaziest fetish retailers with Oxballs (Maybe consider their Atomic Jocks) and Mister B being particularly strong along with some wonderful things from Fort Troff including what they claim as the World’s first App controlled chastity device called The Cell Mate. The dominant brand popular with straights has always been CD-X and there products universally available in the straight market also are as top selling today as ever with millions of satisfied happy floppy dicked restrained cuckolds. There are even now plastic numbered padlocks for those that want an easy life with no embarrassing questions getting through metal detectors or airport security. If you want the top of the range, then you need a Latowski from the German company who lead the high end of the market. They prefer you to visit them and have accurate measurements done at their workshop and it is a fascinating, horny process.

LOCTOBER has come in to being to popularise chastity play and sexual control. Having a keyholder who you have to please for the month to gain release of your crown jewels will do it for many but the self-locking guys are growing in number rapidly. For the latter it is probably mainly down to the enforced lack of masturbation and can build up anticipation for serious planned kink play sessions.

Besides play and dom/sub games what are the benefits? 

1 One of the biggest advantages is an increase in testosterone and sexual energy that occurs during retention. That can lead to increased confidence and improved mood. It can also cause better motivation and faster cognitive functions. That is why many professional athletes and boxers hold back from ejaculating or having sex before important events. It can also make the mind much clearer and increase your focus.

2 On a physical level abstention can result in muscle growth and enhancement of all male qualities. That includes a deeper voice, more substantial hair growth, as well as improved fertility. As you make your way through the month you will find that your hormones and  hormonal balance changes significantly.

3. It stops your man from wasting his time and libido masturbating and all his sexual energy can be directed to you. There is also a lot of thought that ejaculation wastes a huge amount of the bodies energy.

4. Your sex life will improve because he’ll have to please you in order to get his orgasm, release and sexual pleasure, he’ll become a more experimental and better lover almost certainly. 

5. Your relationship will become stronger. Male chastity encourages open and honest communication about each other’s needs. This is an incredible benefit for any couple, and why male chastity can help any couple improve their natural bonding.

6 Your orgasms will improve. As long as you can masturbate regularly you are desensitizing your penis. Once you are on a more ‘normal’ ejaculation schedule, your penis will become more sensitive and your orgasms will become stronger and better.

7. You will never have to worry about him cheating on you. Male chastity makes it impossible for a guy to act on his urges, so you are helping him remain faithful.

8. You will feel better about yourself. Most men are ashamed that they masturbate so often (The world average is seven to 15 times a weeks! It’s almost like an addiction to many. Mostly it makes guys feel like little boys who can’t control themselves and once the deed is done men almost always feel shame and possibly embarrassment. If you stop wanking you will feel proud of your self-control and behave more like a grown-up man who releases his sexuality with real sex and with someone important to you rather than a tissue or a sports sock.

So, who is up for Locktober and 31 days counting down to Halloween with the bald-headed yogurt slinger and his two giggleberry buddies firmly put into plastic or metal servitude for your future health and sex life benefit or shall we just keep spraying our seed all over the ceiling and walls like it’s going out of fashion.
