So I have to admit it's been a long time (probably about a year) since I was locked up. We shelled out quite a bit for a cage quite a while ago and it wasn't as good as we were hoping. Not terribly comfortable, but I won't go too much into the reasons behind that. Mistress and I have gotten into playing a lot more without chastity and I'd say for the first time recently I've felt really intense subspace. We would build up our anticipation for a week or so and focus on our D/s dynamic and rituals. Things were going great, then we'd have amazing play and I'd be allowed to cum. In the days afterwards, I'd stop feeling that intense euphoria of being submissive. I'd go back to a comfortable normal where I basically feel vanilla and lack any excitement around submitting. Going through the motions but not really feeling how I felt before. It's really hard to reconcile that difference in headspace. It's like I feel I'm not a very good sub because my desire to submit pretty much disappears when I've stopped being horny. After experiencing that intense subspace, I want more than anything to return there- it's like the pinnacle of human experience as far as I'm concerned. I would say it feels better than orgasms and is spread out over time. I'm wondering if members here have found that longer term chastity and orgasm denial improves their ability to maintain subspace. Or whether they find it easy to submit regardless of whether they have had an orgasm recently or not.
