My, oh my! How the concept of enforced chastity has changed!
Forget about that old fable of the young maiden in Merry Olde England her virtue safely locked in a chastity belt as she awaited the return of her Lord from the Crusades. Today the reality of chastity has changed drastically. This old medieval fable has undergone a rather startling evolution.
Did you know that many more men than women are locked into chastity and chastity devices?
We know several things about female chastity belts any one of which could have a negative effect on the health of the wearer.
First, in order to be effective a female chastity belt must fit tightly in the genital and vaginal area.
Secondarily, this tight fit would prohibit the access to the female genital area that is needed to insure proper hygiene and cleaning.
Lastly, the resultant infections and/or toxic shock syndrome would be lethal.
Today chastity has taken a totally different turn; while there are still female chastity belts being produced, male chastity devices are by far the biggest seller. There are over 75 designers and manufacturers and 150 English language websites on the Internet to prove it.
Today's modern stainless steel chastity belt was developed by improving upon the Florentine design by Hal Higginbottom in the late 1950s. Since 1958 Hal produced male and female chastity belts from his workshop in Sheffield, England, under the brand name of Tollyboy. His craftsmanship was of excellent quality and his belts were considered to be the "Rolls Royce" of chastity belts. It is Hal Higginbottom who was credited with bringing the chastity belt into the 20th Century.
However, due to demand and the increased interest in chastity, Hal had a long waiting list and his speed of production seemed slow to the eager, impatient buyer. With the demand for chastity belts increasing others were encouraged to manufacturer belts.
The Tollyboy design was adapted in the USA by Jones and Access Denied in Germany by Neosteel. Hal Higginbottom became very ill with respiratory problems, and passed away in May of 1998.
Today the Tollyboy name lives on with Richard Davies (apprentice to Hal) continuing to produce the "Florentine" design, made to measure, steel chastity belts for men and women.
Since the late 1990s the availability of male chastity devices is much higher. Major Players have been Frank & Doris Miller who launched the CB-2000 in 1998. The CB-2000 was the world's first affordable polycarbonate male chastity device. The Millers have since added the Curve, the CB-3000 and the CB-6000 to their range of plastic devices.
The original Miller concept was to use the aspect of “controlled male sexuality” as a relationship enhancement, or a fidelity assurance for men whose employment has them traveling for extended periods of time. In this day of AIDS and other exotic sexually transmitted diseases that will definitely put one’s mate at ease during the man’s absence.
In 1998, A.F. miller Enterprises was the first firm to design, manufacture and distribute the modern “safe” male chastity devices.
The Miller male chastity devices are all produced using a high strength polycarbonate plastic. This is the same material that fighter jet aircraft windshields are made from. The entire line of male chastity devices from A.F. Miller is “airport safe” meaning that when used with the plastic serial numbered lock these units are undetectable by airport metal detectors.
The Miller devices are also designed to permit or insure that proper hygiene can be maintained. All Miller devices have multiple openings designed to permit proper cleaning and to allow adequate ventilation that discourages fungal or bacterial growth.
The models produced by A.F. Miller are the CB3000, the curve, the CB6000, CB6000s. These four models are each designed for a different size of the penis of the man whose sex is to be locked up. The PA5000 is the sole exception to the sizing rule; it is designed to be worn by a man with a PA piercing and is the same interior dimensions as the CB3000 and CB6000.
All of the A.F. Miller products are well accepted. According to the survey of male chastity belt/devices done by the website Chastity-UK, sales of the male chastity devices designed and distributed by A.F. Miller Enterprises represent over 71% of the market.
The most important thing to remember that the use of enforced or controlled male chastity works best when it is by mutual agreement of both parties involved. The man, by placing his sex in the chastity device, then locking it and giving the key to his mate is displaying the ultimate act of faith in their relationship, love of his keyholder and trust in her. By placing control of the male’s sex under the control of his wife, lover, fiancé’ or “significant other” experience has shown that the man will tend to concentrate his sexual energy in his mate’s direction thus stabilizing and enhancing their relationship.
There are a few of the websites that advance the “married couple friendly” approach these are ... and “Lockeduplove.com.” which is operated by John and Lisa Nelson. These sites use a more straightforward informational approach to the subject of the use of the products of A.F. Miller Enterprises for enforced male chastity, or as it is also called, “controlled male sexuality” as a “tool” for married couples “relationship enhancement”. There are also many websites that approach the subject of “enforced male chastity” from a view other than “relationship enhancement”.
There have been reports by some that the CBXXXX and Curve units are not completely “escape proof”; meaning that the man who is locked up can “escape”, i.e. get his penis out of the cage or tube and masturbate. To this end both A.F. Miller Enterprises and other manufacturers have designed accessories to eliminate this problem. Like nearly every product in this world, male chastity devices have more than their share of aftermarket accessories. There are 2 basic functions of aftermarket accessories for male chastity devices.:
First: The first aftermarket accessory is to increase the security of the device and make the male chastity device truly “escape” proof. The majority of the accessories available for the A.F. Miller line of male chastity devices are designed to improve the security of the devices. The security accessories designed by A.F. Miller Enterprises are called “Points Of Intrigue” and are small sections that fit between the tube and the testie ring with a series of somewhat sharp points.
These pointed devices fit on the locking pin between the testies ring and the tube making any escape attempt a painful experience. The website , “keptforher.com” is producing the KSD G-3 an accessory that fits inside the tube of the CB-6000 to make “escape difficult, if not impossible. However the most complete line of security enhancements are featured on the website “Lockeduplove.com”. The line of aftermarket security accessories available from Lockeduplove.com are very unique designs, with the exception of the Baltus security points, which are somewhat similar in design to the “Points of intrigue” from A.F. Miller.
In the mode of security improvements by other manufacturers: There are also stainless steel “add-ons”. While these may increase security; they are not airport safe. For example: Stainless steel locking pins in various lengths are available for the CB2000, CB3000 and “Curve”. Additionally a locking stainless steel belts are available from independent suppliers for the CB2000, CB3000 and “Curve” .
Second: The last group of accessories revolves around the need for proper hygiene required for long-term wear of the chastity devices. The only vendors of Male Chastity devices answering the need for the supplies required to maintain proper hygiene are the “keptforher.com” and “Lockeduplove” websites. Both of these website sell the medical foam “Q” tip type cleaning tools and small squirt bottles for cleaning after urination.
Now back to the subject, namely enforced male chastity.
The male whose sexuality is locked up in a chastity device is denied any personal sensation, orgasm or sexual release. However, if the latched man were to use a strap-on penis it would be as if he were having conventional sex with his keyholder except that he is denied any orgasm. Thus his keyholder teases him while heightening his degree of sexual frustration. Most men enjoy this for 2 reasons:
First: The man is serving as a instrument of his key holder’s pleasure.
Second: Sexual tension increases his testosterone level giving him a significant energy boost.
The relevance of enforced male chastity or orgasm denial to the testosterone level is borne out by the results of the reports of the 20 test subjects’ endocrine, hematological, and semen analyses that were performed by Lab Corp in Columbia, South Carolina in June of 2009. These analyses were performed as a part of the original report that petitioned the Food and Drug Administration Medical Appliance Committee to rule favorably on the acceptance of the A.F. Miller male chastity devices as a medical appliance.
An additional side note: The extract cited below is from a research study by Dr. Liu and others regarding the effect of increased testosterone level on the male’s sexuality. Experiments on a very wide variety of species have clearly identified testosterone as the major “courtship inducer”.
The term “Courtship” can be defined as the "work" a male is willing to do in order to gain the favor of a female. Courtship mode is induced by raising a male's testosterone levels by 50% or more through a sustained non-ejaculatory period of at least seven days.
Further evidence of the importance of testosterone in the male sexual response is indicated in several studies. (The results of these studies will be covered in a separate document which be presented as a footnote at the end of this article.)
The A.F. Miller CB and Curve units have done so well that, unlike any of the other units, there are constant problems with patent infringement and copying. A prime example of this is that currently a manufacturer and distributor from the People’s Republic of China is selling illegal copies of the CBXXXX that are of inferior quality. Many of these devices have failed injuring the users. For your information there are currently more than 150 other designers and manufacturers of Male Chastity Devices.
The only other manufacturer of Male Chastity Devices with a line of polycarbonate devices is Exobelt. The Exobelt devices so totally encase the penis and testicles that long term wear could be hazardous to the wearer’s health as the possibility or developing a fungal or bacteriological infection is increased. It should be further noted that the Exobelt male chastity devices contain steel parts detectable by the newer airport metal detectors. There are also several manufacturers of silicone male chastity devices, such as The Birdlock. Again these devices while they encase the man’s penis tend to fit too closely to permit the degree of cleaning and ventilation required for long term wear.
Lori Lancer, owner of Lancer Enterprises, designs and produces a line of “truly secure” male chastity devices. The “secure” Lancer devices do require a piercing through the wearer’s penis. The “Lori Lancer “devices are made from surgical grade stainless steel. These units are heavy, and the locking pin requires a piercing that goes through the man’s penis. The Lancer units are definitely not “airport safe or metal detector safe”.
Lancer Enterprises chastity devices have several openings that allow proper cleaning and ventilation, as such they are suited to long term chastity. Another plus side to the Lancer male chastity devices is the fact that all Lancer Enterprises units are absolutely inescapable.
Perhaps the biggest drawback of stainless steel units is the sheer weight of the device. Other than that, it should be noted that the “Lancer” male chastity devices are designed for long term wear and proper hygiene is possible.
The factor that makes the A.F. Miller male chastity devices more comfortable is the lighter weight of the polycarbonate male chastity devices.
Generally speaking all of the male chastity devices are very discrete. Loose-fitting pants are recommended, and darker colored pants tend to be even better.
Of all of the devices, the CB-6000, CB-6000s, CB-5000, CB-3000 and the PA 5000 are the most discrete.
Proper fitting of any of CB series male chastity devices is a trial and error procedure in order to get both the “testie ring” and the “spacer sizes right. Since every wearer is different, the only proven method for fitting a male chastity device is a combination of measurement and experimentation.
It should be noted that I have been a CB-6000 wearer for over 5 years. Speaking from personal experience, I found that about 2 weeks is the typical adjustment period. While it will only take a day or two to get the ring sizing correct the ring to tube spacer adjustments may take a while longer. As the latched man’s body adapts, changes to smaller sized rings and closer spacer clearances may be necessary to maintain the balance of fit and security.
While it is impossible to get a full erection when one is latched into a male chastity device nocturnal erections can occur. These can be very uncomfortable and usually occur during an erotic dream cycle. Should an erection occur and wake the wearer he can simply arise and urinate. As soon as the MCD wearer urinates erection will subside.
To date no study has established the maximum tolerance for safe wear of a male chastity device, but, in my opinion, the device should be removed weekly for a thorough cleaning..
While a rare few men have been able to urinate from a standing position, the average wearer of a male chastity device would be best served by dropping his slacks and underwear and sitting while he urinates.
According to those of us who are living the enforced male chastity lifestyle, while it can be sexually frustrating at times, it can also be a rewarding and romantic lifestyle that allows the “enlightened” man to focus his attention and romantic thoughts on his wife’s needs.
Let’s face it; any man will, if given the opportunity, masturbate, and this is something that will be difficult for him to part with.
Chastity works in many ways; it changes one’s mood, demeanor, and libido. Most importantly, it changes your man’s desire to please you. It is not the goal for him to do the cooking or the cleaning or the laundry, but you will find that one or more of these will happen, not routinely, but they will happen because as your partner continues to build up his sexual energy. Due to his sex being under your control he no longer has the ability to release his sexual tension as he pleases, he will divert that energy towards pleasing you.
You, the keyholder, being the only source of his sexual pleasure, will change his feelings. He will adore you, love you in a way that you desire and be eager to please you because you are, as I said, the source of his release. He will find, over a period of time, is happier and that will be because you, the wife, lover, fiancé’ or “significant other” are happier. He will love the emotional boost the two of you share.
Technical addendum to the “Balls are in her court”
Update on Male Chastity Device Research
By: Edward M. Colie, Ph.D.
For the last 3 years I have been studying the use and effect of male chastity devices on relationships, erectile dysfunction and their effect of the hormonal balance of the male subjects who are wearing them. As far as spousal evaluations the entire A.L. Miller line was rated “excellent” by the men who were wearing them. Whereas a few of the test subjects had found looseness leading to “escape” a problem this was remedied when the device was reset by an experienced technician and the smallest size ring with the minimum sized ring to tube spacer was employed. Also the use of two of the testie or trap rings with Models CB2000, CB3000 and the Curve made their wear more comfortable over the long term. A secondary effect of the CB2000 ring in the CB3000 and curve was also that the rings tended to act a “Cock Ring” thus increasing the rigidity and duration of the erection.
Since the inception of this project I have only encountered one negative effect of long term enforced male chastity. This effect is BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) or enlarged prostate. The primary cause appears to be the increased testosterone level that men over the age of 45 develop when they are unable to achieve sexual release or relief due to the fact that they are locked in a male chastity device. According to initial research, this negative effect can be countered through the use of the herbal supplement Saw Palmetto. After effects of varying dosages were studied; the typical daily dose of 400mg capsules 4 times daily appeared to be very effective in controlling Benign Prostate Hypoplasty in men with an elevated Testosterone level.
The semen and serological (blood) analyses are awaiting completion and tabulation at the medical laboratory. When these arrive I will publish them. However it seems worthy of note that three analyses that have already been done there was only minimal deviation from past studies.
The following are referenced articles about the effect of testosterone level on a man’s romantic or “courtship” desires
Testosterone, the molecule of Desire
(By Susanne Liu, M.D., for Dream Lover Laboratories)
Testosterone, the molecule of desire
While for several decades scientists have made detailed studies of the psychology and anatomy of sexual arousal itself, it is only within the last few years that desire, the harbinger of arousal, has become a focus for research. The new studies are focusing on both the biological and the emotional chemistry of desire.
"The purpose of a Male Chastity Device is to enforce the non-ejaculatory period which yields to spontaneous initiation of courtship"
New research on the biochemistry of desire, particularly the role of hormones, especially testosterone. Testosterone is often called the male sex hormone because it is more prevalent in men, although it fluctuates in the individual with time, and plays a key role in development of masculine traits. Recent studies show that one of its main effects is on desire.
In a study of men who suffered from extremely low levels of desire as the result of underactive gonads, doses of testosterone increased the men's frequency of sexual fantasies and boosted their sexual desire.
This study and others with similar results have led scientists to conclude that testosterone regulates sexual desire. The new study, done by J. Davidson, a physiologist, and colleagues at Stanford University, was reported in "Patterns of Sexual Arousal", published this year by Guilford Press. Hormone's Role in Women
"It's now very clear that testosterone is the biological substrate of desire, at least in men", Dr. Davidson said.
The effect of ejaculation on testosterone levels
In the study "A research on the relationship between ejaculation and serum testosterone level in men" by Jiang Ming at Zhejiang University, the serum testosterone concentrations of 28 volunteers were investigated daily during abstinence periods after ejaculation for two phases.
The authors found that the fluctuations of testosterone levels from the 2nd to 5th day of abstinence were minimal. On the 7th day of abstinence, however, a clear peak of serum testosterone appeared, reaching 145.7% of the baseline (P<0.01). No regular fluctuation was observed following continuous abstinence after the peak. Ejaculation is the precondition and beginning of the special periodic serum testosterone level variations, which would not occur without ejaculation. The results showed that ejaculation- caused variations were characterized by a peak on the 7th day of abstinence; and that the effective time of an ejaculation is 7 days minimum. These data are the first to document the phenomenon of the periodic change in serum testosterone level; the correlation between ejaculation and periodic change in the serum testosterone level, and the pattern and characteristics of the periodic change.
In "Nature of the Clearance of Exogenous Testosterone and Progesterone in Ejaculated Bovine Semen" by Hugo Eiler and Charles N. Graves, bovine males received testosterone injections. Within 20 minutes after the injection of testosterone (100 mg Intravenously), plasma concentration of androgen (mean +- SEM) was 698 +- 240 ng/dl (92% testosterone) and semen concentration of androgen was 27.7 ng/ml (76% testosterone). Within 20 minutes after the injection of progesterone (100 mg intravenously), plasma concentration of progestin was 2226 +- 635 ng/ml (96% progesterone) and semen concentration of progestin was 68.2 +- 2.2 ng/ml (68% progesterone). Thereafter, the concentrations of androgens and progestins in both plasma and semen steadily declined. Semen/blood concentration ratio values for progestins and androgens were similar to each other during the experimental period. It was concluded that testosterone and progesterone were readily transferred to the ejaculate from the blood.
The study "Endocrine response to masturbation-induced orgasm in healthy men following a 3-week sexual abstinence" (World J Urol. 2001 Nov;19(5):377-82) examined the effect of a 3-week period of sexual abstinence on the neuroendocrine response to masturbation-induced orgasm. Hormonal and cardiovascular parameters were examined in ten healthy adult men during sexual arousal and masturbation-induced orgasm. Blood was drawn continuously and cardiovascular parameters were constantly monitored. This procedure was conducted for each participant twice, both before and after a 3-week period of sexual abstinence. Plasma was subsequently analysed for concentrations of adrenaline, noradrenaline, cortisol, prolactin, luteinizing hormone and testosterone concentrations. Orgasm increased blood pressure, heart rate, plasma catecholamines and prolactin. These effects were observed both before and after sexual abstinence. In contrast, although plasma testosterone was unaltered by orgasm, higher testosterone concentrations were observed following the period of abstinence. These data demonstrate that acute abstinence does not change the neuroendocrine response to orgasm but does produce elevated levels of testosterone in males. Evidently then, ejaculation has a negative impact on a male's blood testosterone levels, and abstinence greatly increases its concentration.
Testosterone and courtship Experiments on a very wide variety of species have clearly identified testosterone as a courtship inducer. Courtship can be defined as the "work" a male is willing to do in order to gain the favor of a female; in this case, you. Therefore, induction of courtship has long been recognized as an effective method of male training, increasing chores and work output, attention span, receptiveness, and reducing training time.
Courtship is induced by raising a male's testosterone levels by 50% or more through a sustained non-ejaculatory period of at least seven days.
