I've had my Birdlocked Mini now for about a month. The first time I put it on it took an enormous amount of time to get it on using lube to help get the gurls through the ring. I wore it for nearly a whole weekend and my testies were chafed and had a couple of long scrapes that were very painful for about a week. I waited to try the device again for two weeks before trying again. In the meantime I read through a lot of the threads on this site about the techniques used to put the device on. This was extremely helpful. I can now get the gurls through the ring with little difficulty and without lube. It seems that they are getting tougher as I am not having the same level of chafing I had before. I have been wearing my Birdlocked off and on all weekend long and it is getting very comfortable. My Wife/Mistress/Keyholder is also getting much more comfortable with the idea of keeping me in chastity and being a keyholder. I am home alone, locked up, while she is at a family function - with the key. She tells me that I might be able to get some relief tonight. Can't wait until she gets home.
