Today i did something new. Today marked 18 days since my last opportunity to get hard or to have a sexual release, though for all that time my wife has been unlocking me for a short time every two or three days so that i could go running. Each time i would return, shower and then lock myself back up and deliver the key back to her. Today for the first time i donned some compression shorts to hold everything in place and then went running while still locked up. It was an amazing experience on several levels. I was pleasantly surprised that i could do it at all, but the compression shorts were way over engineered and held even my metal cage quite still and secure. Also, it affected my awareness of the many good looking women also out running — mostly by reminding me of my hobbled and nonthreatening condition. And most importantly, it forced me to contemplate the significance of this development for the long term. Previously, although i had never thought much about it, i had always known in the back of my mind that i would be let out, if only for an hour, every couple of days. But now it is clear that these regularly scheduled releases are a thing of the past. I can keep up with my exercise regimen with no unlocking. Suddenly i find myself contemplating continuous lockdown for who knows how long. This realization is coupled with the fact that my wife never lets me out for playtime (at least not so far) but always teases or punishes me while i am still caged. As a result, it feels rather like the whole chastity journey is starting over again at a heightened level of intensity. Needless to say this is creating a feedback loop of attempted arousal, with resulting discomfort and frustration, leading to more attempted arousal. And so on. Not that i am complaining. I am (not for the first time) amazed at the capacity for this practice to trigger unexpected but intense discoveries and sensations over and over again even long after one thinks that things have settled down. Now i need to make sure i can clean the affected area effectively, since the lockdowns will be more lasting. I do wear a jailbird from Mature Metal, which is a wonderful device and reputed to be perhaps the easiest to clean of any device, but if anybody has any good hygene tips, i would love to hear about them. If anybody is wondering, my avatar shows the compression shorts that i used for today’s inaugural locked down run. It seemed appropriate to memorialize them.
