How to Pick the Right Male Chastity Cage
LOCKtober is upon us and that means a full 31 days of male chastity fun. If you aren’t sure what LOCKtober is, make sure to read our full guide here. It goes over everything you need to know about this special celebration of Male Chastity that takes place during Kink Month.
People are talking about it, but what heck is male chastity, and why are so many men and women interested in it? I’ve got the answers for you. Male chastity is a kink where the man or penis owner wears a male chastity device, also known as a cock cage, that is locked and controlled by the key holder or Dom/Mistress. The Keyholder decides when they are allowed to orgasm, have sex, and masturbate and what they must do to earn their reward. (You can read more about what male chastity is here). One of the most challenging aspects of the male chastity kink is finding the right male chastity device or cock cage.
The following is a guide to buying your first male chastity cage.

Choosing the material
Male chastity devices come in a variety of materials. It’s important to choose the material that is best for you. The following are the types of materials that your male chastity device could be made with:
Leather is a popular male chastity cage material. Cock cages made out of leather are softer and more flexible than other cages. They provide users with more comfort which can be good for a beginner who is just starting to experiment with male chastity. While leather chastity devices can be worn for long periods of time they need to be removed when you shower. Another drawback of the leather male chastity cage is that while the design typically allows for plenty of airflow, in places directly under the leather, which can become sweaty.
Note: Most leather male chastity cage models include metal rings in order to form some sort of cage construction. Also, leather male chastity devices allow for some level of masturbation.
Plastic or Polycarbonate male chastity devices are light in weight, discreet under clothes, and can be worn for months at a time with a good routine of cleaning and hygiene. Plastic chastity devices are good because they restrict you more than leather ones. A drawback is that plastic restricts full airflow which may lead to the penis feeling uncomfortably enclosed in the tube or a cage. Plastic male chastity devices are successful at restricting masturbation. Especially the ones that are tube-shaped.
Many male chastity devices are available in a variety of different metals. Stainless Steel is the best and most popular material and 316 Stainless Steel is the same grade as used by the medical profession, meaning it’s hygienic and body friendly. Metal devices offer a more intense sense of confinement and security. They are heavier than then plastic devices, but some penis-owners enjoy the weight as a reminder of their key holder. Metal cock cages are more secure, which means they are far more difficult to break into. While this can add to the excitement, it also adds to the need for extra precautions to be put in place.
The advantage of silicone is that it quickly warms to your body temperature and is far more flexible than any other material. Some designs are provided with separate back rings, whilst others are a one-piece component made with the ring attached to the tube. All silicone male chastity devices are lighter than even plastic devices.
Taking Measurements for Your Male Chastity Device
While your male chastity device shouldn’t be as comfortable as your favorite pair of pajamas it does need to fit properly so that you avoid blistering and cutting off circulation to the penis. A chastity cage should be snug enough not to allow for an erection.
A chastity cage is built with a ring that goes around both the testicles and the penis. So, measuring for a chastity cage is crucial. Secondly, the cage is meant to encase the penis, from base to tip, with only a little room all the way around the shaft for airflow. Thus, with the right chastity cage sizing, you should be able to pee and go about your day. However, you should not be able to achieve an erection. What chastity cage size you buy depends on 2 chastity cage measurements; the cage itself and the ring. Therefore, you will be measuring your penis length and girth in order to get the perfect chastity cage fit.
Measuring for Ring Size
First, make sure you are limp. Next, bring the string behind your balls next to your body and up and over the top of where the shaft of your cock meets your body and tie a knot. Make sure the knot isn’t too tight. You should be able to slip your pinky finger under the string with little resistance. Next, once you’re sure the string is comfortable, make a mark on one side of the knot with a marker. Then, carefully cut the string at the line you drew. Finally, lay the string flat on the ruler, with the knot at the end.
This is the circumference. To get your male chastity cage ring size, divide that number by 3.14 (pi) and you will have the measurement you need.
Measuring for the Cage
To measure for the size of the cage, start by measuring for the chastity cage length. Remember, you don’t want any room to achieve an erection. Again, be sure your penis is completely flaccid.
Place a ruler under your penis, above your testicles, and press it against your pubic bone. Take the length of your penis and add ¼ to 1/2” to that measurement. Now you have the length.
Finally, you need to measure the girth of your penis. With your penis limp, find the thickest part of your shaft which can be the middle or even closer to the glands.
Next, as you did with the ring measurement, use a piece of string to wrap around the thickest part of your penis. Tie a loose knot, making sure you can easily slip your forefinger underneath the string. Now, mark the string on one side of the knot and slide it off your penis before snipping the string with scissors. Lay the string on the ruler, with the knot at the top and take that number and divide it by pi (3.14) and you’ll have the diameter you need to ensure the safest chastity cage fit.

Sissy chastity cage: these are typically small and humiliating for the wearer on purpose.
Vibrating chastity cage: These cages come with the ability to add vibration
Harness chastity cage with straps: The chastity harness brings the male chastity device closer to the wearer’s body.

Cute chastity cage: This typically refers to pink or purple chastity cages of smaller sizes.
Discrete chastity cage: These cages are meant for long-term, public wearing. These cages don’t make noise nor do they show the lump under clothing.
BDSM cages: These include cages with spikes and rivets, cock cages with dilators and urethral catheters, and some even have the ability to give electric shocks.
Cages with butt plugs: Some cock cages have an integrated butt plug.
Fully enclosed cock cage: Fully enclosed cock cages are tube-like though many have a hold for the purpose of urination and to prevent moisture buildup.
