Hi everyone, I'm Dave, aged 41 from Manchester in the UK. I've known I was submissive from an early age, and when I became aware of the concept of chastity, about 15 or so years ago I was very excited by it and read everything I could on the subject. This was pre-internet for me so there wasn't that much available. I've been a lurker on this site for ages, but I've not really had much to contribute as my G/f isn't really big on chastity, she still thinks it's a little weird and will only really indulge me occasionally. Anyway, this week is one of those rare times for me. I've taken a few days off work, as I find my CB6000 to be quite uncomfortable to wear for more than a few hours at a time, so I didn't want to have to deal with too much 'real life' while locked up. My G/f and I have been together for almost eight years, but we still don't live together. She has two teenage sons still at home, plus a dog while I have cats. It works quite well for us as it keeps the weekends special and although she doesn't really care for chastity, she can be quite the Domme when the mood takes her. Our sex life has always been pretty good and there have been some encouraging new developments lately. Anyway, I gave her the key to my device before I left her on Sunday, went to work on Monday and Tuesday, then on Tuesday night, after 'edging' myself a number of times while watching the clips on the devine Maitresse Madeline's site, I took the plunge and locked myself up. Tuesday night was very exciting, but to be truthful, since then things have been a little boring. I've just been rattling around my flat and catching up on a bit of cleaning. My G/f is coming over on Saturday night though, and you might say I'm 'on a promise'. She's already said that she'll wear the slutty pink underwear that I got her for Christmas, there's been talk of me painting her toenails and *crosses fingers* using our 8" strap on on her while I remain locked. I say 'crosses fingers', as we've been in this situation before and due to alcohol, tiredness or just second thoughts on her part, things have fallen flat. However, I do think that she'll make the effort for me this time, I spoiled her for valentines day and was very romantic. Things have been generally pretty great between us recently, but I still kind of feel like I'm walking on eggshells when the chastity thing comes up. She tends to roll her eyes a bit and make comments about me and my 'dirty ways', albeit in a jokey way. Anyway, sorry for such a long post for my first one, but hopefully I'll be able to update next week, with a report of our wild and horny night. Even if it doesn't go to plan, I hope to contribute in the future. Cheers, Dave.
