My KH (wife) and I have been dabbling in chastity for about a year now. Right out the gate she turned into a terror of a keyholder. When I approached her about my kinky predilictions I had hoped to toy with the idea and get a feel for it. Yeah, no. She basically stuffed me into a CB device we bought at an adult store and with a wicked grin told me I'd be allowed to come again in 6 months. I'm not gonna lie. She sent my head spinning and as much as I wanted to go through with it, the rational part of my brain recognized this wasn't feasible for a first time attempt. I initiated a conversation about it and we both decided to do a month instead. I thank my lucky stars, as there were many teething issues ranging from burning scrotum to hygiene. Eventually we fell in an arrangement where I wear it during the day when she's not around and she takes it off at night before bed, although I wasn't allowed to leave the room without putting it back on. She didn't trust me. Smart girl lol. A month flew by and that post-chastity orgasm on day 30 was the single most intense orgasm I've ever had. Since then we've been doing the one month thing pretty consistently. We got a new, better fitting steel cage that allows me to sleep in it, so time without the cage is minimal over the 30 day span now. About 6 months ago I started keeping a diary during my denial periods (there have been 4 x 30 day periods over the last 6 months). It was pretty interesting to note the general pattern which seems to be pretty consistent for me (give or take a couple of days for each phase: Phase 1 (Day 1 - 5): is just a slow ratcheting of my arousal levels. Kind of like a rollercoaster climbing before the drop. Phase 2 (Day 6 - 13): this is where the magic happens. Without fail after about 6 or 7 days of chastity I become hyper aroused. I get these intense sensations in the pit of my stomach like I'm actually riding a rollercoaster or I'm madly in love. Butterflies and electricity everywhere. Even the slightest touch of my KH's hand can send me into a dizzying state of arousal that is hard to describe. Phase 3 (Day 14 - 25): this period baffles me. The only thing I can compare it to is the infamous "flatline" described by no-fappers. My libido is all but gone and even direct teasing that would normally send me through the roof has little effect. I have no idea why this happens, but it's a pretty consistent thing for me to experience this. I don't see other people talking about this a lot though. Is it normal to experience a sudden drop like this? I reckon it could be my dopamine receptors having a nap after the craziness of week 2. Phase 4 (Day 26 - 30): usually my libido starts to recover here, but it's sort of similar to the "simmering" described by people on this forum. It's more a low level constant arousal as opposed to the insanity I experience during my second week. Orgasms on day 30 is still earth shattering though. I'm toying with the idea of asking my wife to do the 6 months as initially suggested by her. I've never gone beyond 30 days and I'm dying to know what's beyond that horizon, even though it scares the hell out of me. My KH has already proven herself to be merciless once we commit to a period and if we agree on 6 months, it's gonna be 6 months unless my penis spontaneously falls off. I've begged and pleaded before and she's literally never given in and just flatout refuses to unlock me despite my moaning. It seems like it amuses her to a point when I beg, but pretty early on she warned me that she'll end my 30 days with a ruined orgasm if I carry on whining after she told me to stop. We've been married a long time and I know for a fact that's not an idle threat, so I usually stop asking if she says "enough begging, you're annoying me". At this stage I'm too curious and turned on by the idea of going 6 months to stop it. I can feel my trepidation slowly melt and I just know not long from now I'm going to curse past-tense me for doing something so idiotic. What is your arousal level fluctuations normally like over the course of your denial period? And what can I reasonably expect to happen if we push it past the 30 day mark to the 6 month mark?
