    The first model I ordered a while back was their Watchful Mistress (WM) and this time I ordered the original Jailbird (JB). Here is what I have found out from my experience and we wanted to make the switch. Everything about the WM was great, but due to my inexperience I made some mistakes and I would like to share them with anyone who is interested in buying from MM and/or possibly using this information to get a generic item.

    The sizing

    When you are purchasing a device you need to remember the “cage” or “tube” might be a certain length, but the entire device is a different length. Here are some thing to consider…

    A single base ring from MM is roughly ¼ or .25 inches.

    You can pick a Gap between the base ring and cage that is ¼, ⅜, or ½ inches (.25, .375, .5 respectively).

    The cage length is pretty obvious.

    So when you measure yourself from the top of your penis, you might want to consider your cage size won’t be your length. You should at least remove ¼ inch for the ring and whatever your gap distance is. For example, if you measure 3 inches, but want a ½ inch gap…

    3 - .25(for the ring) - .5(for the gap)= 2.25 inches

    But you probably want to go another ¼ to a ½ inch shorter than this.

    The next thing to consider is the cage diameter, most people get 1 ¼ inch (1.25) or 1 ⅜ inch (1.375). Odds are if you are getting 1.375 you are getting something a little too big, so it is OK to get a short tube so you are more tightly packed inside your device.


    The last thing I will mention about the sizing is the Gap, if you measure your penis length on the top and bottom with a cock ring on you will be able to subtract these distances so your cage isn’t ramming into your ball sack not giving you enough room which will cause some painful rubbing and skin irritation that will break your skin long term. If you aren’t sure what your gap is get ⅜ inch… if that is too small it is obvious that you can get a new ring that is bigger or vice versa.

    The features

    I think it is a MUST to have the security screw. My 2nd model has it and my 1st doesn’t & I do not miss the look of the lock nor the ridge feeling of the lock touching me at times.

    The oval ring really worked well for me compared to the round ring… I would suggest you get both to try them out or just start with the oval to see how it feels.

    Make sure you get the plastic sizing rings before you buy and follow their tips on fitting them. You won’t regret it, the biggest noobie mistake is not getting the correct base ring size.

    Closing comments

    The JB is so much lighter than the WM and for long term wear is a must for me. The WM is a really cool looking model, but if you are wearing it long term you are probably getting a shorter device & it doesn’t look as “neat” when it is around 2 inches… There also isn’t a lot “openness” to it. For long term wear I think the JB is the way to go.


    In my opinion the shorter the better for long term wear, this is just my opinion. When “engaged” (lol) I am at an above average length… but my JB’s cage is 1.5 inches, the ring is .25 inches, and the gap is .5 inches. That is still a total length of 2.25 inches. Do be afraid to get something that is a little more compact, just make sure you watched the news, did a boring activity, before you put it on. It is so much more comfortable doing from going from a 2 inch cage length to a 1.5 inch length with less weight from the model design.

    I hope this was helpful. I will try to get some pictures of the device, the next time it is off… but I don’t know when that will be...

    I've only bought from MM once - it was a JB with triple base ring. I absolutely endorse King Hippo's statements about ensuring the cage part is as short as possible for long term comfort - I was able to wear mine for 286 days 24/7, doing all necessary cleaning while it was still locked on. The major downside of MM is trying to fathom out the strange way of measuring - almost the whole world uses metric measurements, and those inch things are so confusing that I've only ever bought non-US cages since)

    If someone has a problem with unit conversion, just use Google.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=inches+to+mm

    and know how to convert a fraction to decimal and a decimal to a fraction, LOL!!!

    I know double posting is generally a no-no on a forum but here is a picture of the new purchase.

    I think you’re right about the length. When I ordered my JB I took the advice to go about a half inch shorter than my measurement, and my only regret is that I didn’t go down even another half inch. One of these days I’ll send it in for shortening.

    With cage diameter, snug is best. I was lucky that the smallest ring size fit me perfectly when flaccid, which the sizing rings made easy to figure out.

    The one feature that I will add when I get my cage shortened is having the security screw countersunk. I considered it when I ordered, but I wanted to be able to use the padlock as well, which countersinking prevents. In retrospect, that was the wrong decision.
