Hi, I'm new to CM and have enjoyed what I've been reading, but figured it's time to stop lurking. I saw there was recently a post with a link to the DL2K site. I'm NOT doing that. I recently discovered Chastity Mansion and have been looking to see if there are any sites that DL2K users frequent that are independent of the manufacturer. I'm curious to hear honest unfiltered opinions and experiences. I followed the developer's blog site regularly as he struggled to bring it to market and get it approved for sale all the while wondering (as many others) "what will this thing COST?" Well it finally became a reality, the price put it beyond my discretionary funds. $1500 (roughly) was a heck of a price for a sex toy. But the amount of functions and detail that went into this thing had my gadget side hooked. I was obsessed. She'd told me I could order it if I found a way to pay for it that wouldn't impact the family's finances. It took me 3 months but I'd managed it. I'd hoped to surprise my wife with it, as we'd discussed it extensively as it was being developed, but the FedEx arrived when she was home and I wasn't. She called me and said, "do you have something to tell me?" She actually was excited to try it too, but a bit afraid. Funny, it wasn't going to be shocking HER. But she cares for my best interest. I should probably start out by explaining that we are not lifestylers when it comes to chastity. We practice it occasionally. I do not wear a device consistently. The longest I've gone without orgasm has been 2 weeks. I find it a fun thing to do, and yes, sex is more fun when you're horny. When we do engage in chastity play I am on the honor system during the weekdays, and I respect it. I will sometimes (usually after the first couple days) wear a CB after the kids go to bed, since she goes to sleep before me. This both is exciting and limits temptations to cheat. But after my morning shower I'm out. *Except on weekends*. she greatly enjoys the dramatically increased productivity she gets from me during this time. I actually get a lot of satisfaction out of the increased focus and discipline as well. I trust my wife implicitly, but I'm not really a sub, I'm a switch with dom tendencies. I'm essentially training her dominant side by topping from below. I do not wish to be sissified, nor does she wish me to be, but I do appreciate a strong woman, and this gives her an opportunity to practice that. I do not want to see her with another man, nor does she want to be with one. I can genuinely relate to the psyche of the chastity lifestyle, and I respect it, but it's just not a full-time thing for us. Back to the point. Got the DL2K. It is stunning in it's presentation. The remote is tiny and has smart safety features. The USB stick allows it to be operated by ANY internet enabled device from anywhere in the world. My wife can call, ask how the laundry is coming along, and zap me while driving home. Our personal favorite part is that it has a tiny vibrator/motor that allows her to send numbered commands to me (morse code) - massage, clean, cook, fetch, etc. She loves being able to demand a massage without having to even SAY it. Enough raving. On to the problems I encountered. At first when I tried the device on I was unable to get a shock at all. I had followed the instructions and it seemed like it should work, but nothing. I pushed the button on the remote, nothing, again, nothing, adjusted the angle of the device to see the lights, again, OUCH! I'd struck paydirt. It worked. Then it didn't. Then it did! Then it didn't. WTF? I emailed the vendor (who was VERY responsive - less than an hour!) who said I needed to double check the installation of the probes. I reseated everything and still had the same problem. Then I realized, that when I tilted the device forward, it would work. It wasn't the electrodes on my skin, but the connectors INSIDE the device that weren't getting proper solid connection. I tightened the screws and it worked PERFECTLY. Later I got some brass washers to allow for more contact without having to over-tighten the screws. There are 3 levels of shock. As I describe them 1.Hi! 2.I said HELLO! and 3.Yo!!! mutherfuka!!! 3 hurts if she hits it more than twice in 15 seconds. All of it is essentially an immediate pain only. Level 3 stings for a good 5-10 seconds. But the best part is that no matter how many times she does it, it is ALWAYS alarming. She gets a real kick out of making my twitch. It also has a summon button that even less powerful than level 1, but fires in rapid succession such that it very effectively makes me move my ass! The second problem I ran into was the motor (arousal inducer) stop working reliably. Something went wrong inside the wiring and it became unreliable. This was very sad as the remote instructions were our favorite function. Again I contacted the vendor and again he was very responsive. I described the problem and he said I'd probably broken the reinforced connector joint. I didn't feel like I'd abused it in any way, but I also understood that he had no way to know that without seeing it. He offered to sell me a new motor for $35. Considering the unit was $1500 I thought this quite reasonable. Apparently the motors are out of production and can no longer be acquired. He sent me a new motor & housing (they're all assembled into one part.) I unscrewed the old housing, put the new one on and it worked...for about 30 minutes. Then it was like the battery had run out. WTF? I reconnected the old motor, and it worked OK. I reconnected the new motor, and same problem again, but now the device started rebooting when trying to activate the motor. I contacted the vendor again. He responded in a few hours and said I would need a new battery that he could sell me ($15) or I could :"make" one from the basic battery (sold at any specialty electronics store) by taping the connector to it. I did this and it worked. For about an hour. It seemed the new motor had run the NEW battery down. The weirdest part was that it seemed to run it down even without USING the motor. What was worse was that the accelerometer was now ALSO not working correctly. So the Penis Slap Amplifier Mode and the Canine Mode no longer worked. I contact the vendor again. Again responding within a few hours he said I would need to send it to him for inspection. I decided that since I now had a replacement motor, I didn't have anything to lose by cutting the silicone sheath off the original motor. When I did this I discovered that I hadn't "broken" the part he was talking about at all, but rather the wires INSIDE the vinyl coatings had broken from moving about and being tugged on. I went ahead and stripped and re-soldered the connections. The old motor worked GREAT again, but now the silicone coating was off the motor would not be waterproof. I used some duct-tape to cover the device and it worked fine, but after another day of use, the part that attaches the DL2K to the posts of the CB6K managed to tear and break. Thankfully this is part of the lower housing (the replacement part he'd sent, so the new one could replace it.) I went ahead and mailed off the device to be inspected and repaired since the accelerometer still didn't work right. There was a little bit of a delay as he had to move to another address, so I waited until he had the new address. He received it, informed me of his findings and had some concerns. There were conditions of the device that I told him I had caused and others that were 'like that' when it arrived. He told me the motor was weak due to a poor connection on the board. This didn't make sense since a poor connection shouldn't ever run down the battery. He asked if I'd prefer a replacement instead since this motor was weaker than average (apparently they vary a bit.) I opted for this and he said he'd have to order one from his warehouse. I waited about a week for him to get the part and ship it out. It should be here Monday. I can't wait for it to get back. It has been the best sex toy my wife and I have ever played with, and that list isn't short...although, we haven't tried a TENS unit...yet. I know it's a long winded story about dealing with a vendor (not so sexy), but this being such a unique device in such a short run, I can understand how small businesses and new products are not the same situation as Sony selling 5million units of some electronic item, so I'm interested to see if there are others out there and what their experiences have been.
