I was into a lovely 30+ day lock-up last fall, and my darlin' went into about 90 days of really bad fibro -- mild discomfort up to major pain. Any contact could hurt, orgasms for her were not even considered (they would give her several days of increased pain) and teasing me, even passively, was more than she had energy for. According to the mythology around chastity, I should carry on boldly, fulfilled by my ability to please her. That wasn't the case. I became surly over being ignored, and the more I tried to overcome it the worse I got. Finally, I self-unlocked, because even discussing my sexual needs was an unkindness to her -- she didn't even have the energy to talk about other people's sex, let alone hers, let alone take part. I think, for me, at this point in my journey, chastity and orgasm denial in general needs to be sexualized somehow. When I was simply the caretaker for my darlin', everything was as non-sexualized as could be. Stopping was a good choice, although I hope to someday get to a point where I could go on, fulfilled by being able to continue caged and neglected without becoming sour. Happily, she has a little more energy lately and can at least tease me a bit casually (package checks and such), and I am back behind bars where I want to be. Still no orgasms for her, nor are they welcome, but she can think about them, which is an improvement. All is good, and I celebrated by taking yohimbe extract for the first couple days, just to get really raging at the cage. Do any of you folk have medical issues that change the fun to a burden?
