For those here who go long stretches on a regular basis (or just do not unlock at all), did your wife sit you down and have a talk with you about it first? I am guessing for most, it just evolved to longer and longer lock periods. While I go monthly or longer, my wife seemed to want to make it clear what to expect; which I appreciate. She told me that she has mentioned a seasonal schedule before and that it is what she believes she wants (won't know til we get there sorta thing). She said she does not want to think about if it is 1 month or 2 or whatever...that she will unlock whenever she wants. She said we will have playtime, but that will only be unlocking for an hour or two...but that after much longer stretches (seasonal) she will unlock me for a few days. She says she thinks "no more unlocking" does not sound fun and that if I do get unlocked once in awhile, I will miss it more and thus, the cage will be more effective. I asked her if I should expect my new stretches to begin now and she told me this is why she is sitting me down and talking to me about it; yes. The most illuminating thing for me was that during her telling me all this is that she mentioned several times "my commitment" to the cage. It really sunk in that she understands I have made a commitment to do this and now she sees this as how it will be going forward. There was no real talk of a game or whatnot...it was that she is really impressed with my "commitment" and that she expects I will have episodes of being sick of being locked so much...but that she expects me to work though it. She mentioned how I told her before that I did not want to get used to releasing in my cage, and how now, that is mostly how I get releases. She said she heard me and understood my position, but even when I told her that, she knew that SHE much preferred I get used to releases without unlocking and thus, I WOULD have to work through it (I have). I have written before about how chastity for me is more acceptance than kink; but she is right, I have committed to it and want her to feel safe having the control she wants (the control is really what she likes).
