My wife and I were doing chastity with the honor system for a while and 2 weeks ago decided to try it with a cage. I made it 11 days, today we decided to remove the cage. We were unprepared for the emotional consequences that I experienced. Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but after time in the cage I just feel alone on a island by myself. I enjoyed the submissiveness that being in the cage brought out in me, but I also felt like I was doing this alone. During the day was especially difficult as we didn't have alot of contact and it just made me feel alone in all of this. I came home from work last night and teared up as I described how I was feeling to my wife. We talked last night and again this morning about it and she made the decision to remove the cage and go back to the honor system. She wasn't a huge fan of the cage anyway. The honor system was working for us, I just wanted to use the cage because i felt it was how chastity should be done, or as my wife put it "all the cool kids do it that way". We tried it, and made it 11 days. She said that she will reintroduce it in the future for shorter periods. While I'm disappointed in myself for not being able to make it work, I'm relieved that we talked it over and came to this decision. We talked again tonight and are both happy with the cage being removed. It allows her to tease me without the cage in the way and it is physically more comfortable for me. I really don't have a problem with the will power to not touch myself, respect for my wife and our agreement motivate me to honor my chastity commitment. We are still doing "Locktober" in the fact that I will not be having an orgasm this month, it's just not being controlled using the cage. Still diapered though, just a "softer" form of chastity.
