If you are already a member of the chastity community, you will understand what male chastity cages are and why they are a necessary part of that lifestyle. On the other hand, if you have no idea what chastity is, you obviously also do not have a clue as to what chastity cages are. To try to explain cages to you, it is important to know more about the chastity lifestyle so that is the perfect place to begin. First and foremost, chastity is typically a chosen lifestyle between two partners. One of the partners are dominant and the other one is submissive. The submissive is typically a man, thus the chastity cages. They do whatever their dominant partner instructs them to do and then they are either rewarded or punished depending on whether or not they have done the task correctly.
Basically, the way to use male chastity cages is pretty simple. The Key Holder places the cage securely around the submissive’s penis and then locks it into place. If the fit is correct, any attempt to gain an erection will hurt just because the bars of the little cage will dig into the penis. This is not a sensation that most men enjoy therefore, these cages are quite successful at keeping the erection at bay. In that way, the submissive can go out with the permission of his Key Holder and not have to worry about having a non-sanctioned sexual encounter with someone else because his erection will be painful and go away along with his interest in having the encounter.
In a chastity relationship, male chastity cages are always used. They offer the most protection against the submissive going against his Key Holder. That is the person who decides when the cage is on and when it is off. Nothing gets to happen without the permission of the Key Holder and that is what makes the cages so very useful. The submissive does not get to keep the key to his cage and must always do everything his Key Holder commands if he ever wants it to be unlocked and removed.
