By reasonable I mean a realistic period in a loving relationship whether D/s or Vanilla. Denial for a day drives some men crazy. Some can go a month with no problem. Many of us want permanent or a year of denial. I know that is my fantasy and what my wife would actually want. Lucky she loves me despite being into girls more. Where is that point where it changes from being able to wait to "I really have to orgasm or I will die" feeling.? For me the law of diminishing returns is in force. The longer I wait the less enjoyable my orgasm is. In fact it hurts due to the force of ejaculation. My sweet spot is a month. Those are my most intense an enjoyable orgasms. However I no longer have a say so my wife usually has me wait 2-3 months, depending on her mood or any special occasions like our anniversary or my birthday, etc. For us it is Teasing and Denial play with the chastity cage playing a supporting role. It is a challenge for both of us. How long can I go and how long can she deny me before feeling she is putting me in mental or physical distress. So what period of time do you think is reasonable so that it goes from just wanting an orgasm to I need an orgasm or my head will explode?
