    Hi All,
    I wonder some times about how many day to day wearers of chastity devices there are out there. I was at a rugby match in Dublin on Sat last. 82,000 people in the stadium. Was I the only one in a CB6000? I wonder how many CB's have been sold worldwide? I know there is so many more specialist makes but CB is the most common starter. Would they tell us how many they have made?

    Anyone else in Ireland? My Mistress says she might work out a key holder system for Irish guys suffering alone.

    It is only a fun thread but deep down I am always wondering.

    Well, I'm not in a device, but I am kept under orgasm control... does that count?

    I'll add myself onto the list of people who have wondered.. We are so many on the Internet, surely we can't be so few in society.

    i've been wondering that myself... being a statistician i could extrapolate the number of chastized sissies here to the general population. based on research so far, that number would be an underestimate since a large number of couples practicing this lifestyle don't feel a need to participate in on-line groups like this. i've noticed that posts here are becoming more revealing and by what i know they describe a consistent lifestyle.

    i'd guess that between 1 and 3 percent of married couples practice male chastity and the sissymaid lifestyle.

    Do you really think it is that high? i'd guess about 1 in 9 couples are into the male chastity/sissymaid lifestyle.

    i'm sure if you just asked the males, it would be around 1 in 3.

    Just my thoughts, for what there worth.

    i think you meant low... not to worry i do that all the time!

    perhaps it could be that high (>10%) but i don't know how to confirm that! it's tough to say how many couples don't participate in a public group. i know there are many private groups that practice this lifestyle, and they tend to be word of mouth through mutual Lady friends. i recently noticed the number of posts describing characteristics of that lifestyle so perhaps some members may become more willing to tell others.

    I don't think it's anywhere near 10%. Maybe 1% but I'm guessing that's high. If you think about it if it was 10% and assuming that 1/2 the population is male (which is slightly high) in the use the 300 Million people would yield 15 Million. Around one percent and were about 1.5 Million which I think is probably high. If we cut that in half and say that half are adults then we're at about 750,000. Maybe this many have played with it or thought about it. Cut it in half again and we're at 75,000 which I think is closer. So maybe 1/2 percent of the population.

    Anyway that would be my guess. Also keep in mind that male chastity has really taken off in the last few years. When I first learned of it about 7 years ago it was a pretty obscure kink.

    it's disappointing that we don't have access to chastity sales data. that would be really helpful!

    over the past year i noticed an increase in the number of single Women seeking males for LTR chastity leading to full-time service in marriage. i found one site last year by accident, that focusses on these match-ups (i think it was the Ms. Sutton site or an off-shoot). before i was married i was serving two Ladies as their maids on a weekly basis after a one-month search. both eventually married and chastised their male maid partners.

    there seems to be a pretty good demand for this lifestyle among Ladies and i wonder if the demand is greater than the supply. i've always felt it's pretty scarey facing a life of chastity, feminization and service. jumping into it full-time could be difficult!

    I think it is hard to guess any percentage and i doubt that the number of sold chastity devices/belts would shed light on how many males are being kept in chastity. Many men have more than one, others might have bought it, played a little with it but then didn't use it for real.
    It is true, male chastity has become very popular, i think maily due to information available in the internet.
    However, when it comes to real lifestyle chastity and, as ladylionzsissy mentioned, feminization, i would guess that the percentage is lower than one percent ...
    We must consider that a side like that gathers chastees and keyholders from all over the world and thus can be hardly representative.
    However, one thing is sure ... we are not alone and if it's not the next door neighbor, it might be the next but one ...

    I've often wished that he companies that sell the CB-xxxx devices (arguably the most popular) would just put up a web page with a world map, and a count of devices shipped to each region. You now, like a US map that showed one number per state. I could look and see "Hmm, 10,000 CBs sold in NY!"

    I agree this doesn't really give insights into how many chaste relationships there are. Some were no doubt bought and found undesired. Others by single guys, and some no doubt as jokes. It WOULD be really cool to know, though.

    I've been to a few BDSM fetish events. With 30-40 males there, I was the only one I was aware of interested in chastity, so that's what? 2% of an already very narrow stripe of society, which would be predisposed to such things. I think the actual number "out in the world" is in small fractions of 1%.

    I remember reading an article which I can't find on the web now, but it was talking about chastity and how many people engaged in chastity play. I thought the article which was a few years old, said that over 1,000,000 chastity devices had been sold (world wide?).

    I agree with maid katrin on the fact that some people have more than 1 chastity device. I personally have 6 if you include leather locking chastity jock, and 1 on order (Birdlocked)

    It must be low -- on the 1% end, imho. i'm being too lazy to check, but the big sex surveys report LOTS of vanilla people play at tie-up or some other BDSM / Ds game once or twice in their lives just to try it out. Similarly, QUITE A FEW admit to playful pain play - occasional biting and spanking. The numbers drop off tremendously as soon as you go past playful experimentation to labeling oneself as a Dom, sub or other non-mainstream entity.

    Still, I do the same thing -- look around a vanilla setting and wonder who is kink underneath the socially acceptable veneer. There are a lot of Ds references in mainstream and pop culture, so somebody's doing it!

    Be well,
    zadig

    yes. I think we are all desperate to know the figures.
    No doubt sales are higher in some countries. US, UK, Canada, and Germany.
    For these countries I would guess at maybe 5% of men locked and increasing quickly.

    Hi All,
    Tomf you should really broaden your figures outside your home country. This is truely an international forum. I wonder if the Chinese who make so many of the fakes use them? Now 1% of China would be a lot of locked up guys.

    Can someone who knows CB ask them?

    Regards, all,

    Well I was using those figured for several reasons. First the numbers were easy to work with. Two I was familiar with them. And three as someone else pointed out several of the other western countries probably are similar (Canada, UK, Germany, etc)

    China is a unique beast as is Japan. Can't compare them to any other country.

    Just for giggles I worked out from a plastics process view how many devices A.L. Enterprises has probably made, and I got a 1-2% penetration rate (heh) counting male wearers in North America and Europe, including the contribution from Asian knockoffs and those sitting in drawers, not including any steel. I can't speak to what they're used for or whether, nor what sort of pent-up demand (heh) there might be for the Next Big Thing (Birdlocked?) or what will become of those displaced devices.

    Tomf, maid katrin and Norman; I think you're right on the money. First of all kinks can only flourish in highly developed countries where there is a lot of leisure time. Sure, there are kinksters everywhere but only in large numbers if there is leisure time and enough freedom of communications available so that people can be comfortably sure that they are not completely nuts because they want to play these games. A manufacturing company near me makes the CB2000 series of Chastity devices. I never knew it until their plant was featured on a local TV station program. During the program they mentioned having produced over one million of the devices world wide. Of course we know that there are many different types of chastity devices world wide. so there could easily be several million out there. Let's suppose that there are 5 million devices actually being used as described by our members and there are 2 billion people (just a wild guess) living in highly developed countries or affluent cities in less developed countries that would put the number at around .25%. Going back to high school years, if there were 1000 attending your school, 2.5 would be turn out to be chastity kinksters. This sounds about right to me but I also think that the fad is becoming a trend and growing- the number will continue to increase. Of course with the current recession discretionary funds are running low and a lot of people will be forgoing investments in their own pleasure to provide food and shelter for themselves and their families. One thing to remember though about this and similar web sites. Many of us practice chastity without devices. Many of us are D/s relationships without a particular emphasis on chastity. Many play maid or servant just for fun or more seriously. Many are into cross-dressing and other kinds of gender bending. Lots of people like to spank or be spanked, whip or be whipped etc. etc. So, yeah there's a bunch of kinksters out there who though they may not live the chastity lifestyle, they sure understand and can relate to it. Add up all of the little and larger percentages and you would have a sizable number which more clearly reflects the percentage of people sharing, fantasizing or at least sympathizing with our lifestyle. I would guess 5 to 7 % of the general population.

    dubsub,
    I am in Ireland too (kildare), but I am a dominant hedonistic, keyholder.

    Love that your Mistress has you locked up, frustrated and so controlled...

    .. and I do hope she starts keyholding. I do get some requests from people (throught Gaire) but most people just want to talk about it, not be locked up.

    Horny regards to your wife !


    Michael.

    I've often wondered about the same thing. I've also wondered if there are females out there who are chastity subs as well. I know there are some devices for female chastity but I've yet to come across any content on-line relating to real-life female chastity. The idea intrigues me. My g/f has expressed interest in playing along with me. (She is a switch as well.) One scenario I find thrilling is both of us dressed as maids cleaning the house all day together while both locked in chastity. The keys would be kept in some sort of timed safe where we wouldn't be able to unlock ourselves until well into the night. I'm sure after a full day and night of serving as maids together we would be ready to devour each other. If we didn't just pass out from all the housework! Lol! A bit off topic but thought I'd share.

    My apologies to allfullup. I missed your question about the URL to the TV feature. No such luck. It was a short feature on a local station- I don't even remember which channel. There was nothing kinky about the presentation. They concentrated on the small business aspect and the fact that the business employed 10 or 15 people in a small town and had some how made a success out of manufacturing an odd item which for some reason was purchased by a limited number of people worldwide most of whom considered it a novelty.

    I am hoping that within 20 years there will be a worldwide law that says all men must wear chastity devices upon marriage. All problems in the world would be solved right then and there.
