Well, I think I've finally found my setup for making it through the night. I bought some nice compression shorts from a sporting goods store. I highly recommend giving that a shot if you're having issues sleeping all night. I pull them up pretty far and they do an amazing job of keeping my cage snug against my body. No more ball-breaking nighttime erections from getting erect in your sleep after the cage has manged to work itself 1/3 down your shaft. I know it's one of the classic problems people bump into when transitioning to long term wear, and I'm happy that I seem to have made progress solving it; wanted to share. My KH has been very supportive and encouraging in my journey to get to 24/7 wear. She's expressed her desire for me to sleep in my cage, but I can wake her up and use our safeword to get unlocked if I'm in physical distress. I've had to do this on a few occasions and have on other times simply requested to be unlocked before bed, without an attempt to sleep caged. I told her tonight that I wanted to try sleeping caged and she was pleased. We had a big Sunday dinner and turned in fairly early. An erection woke me up around 11:30 or so. It was a fairly uncomfortable nocturnal erection but a far cry from the level I've gotten to in past nights. This was discomfort, not pain. Sitting on the toilet, counting to 100 and back down again, and having a pee made it subside nicely. I'm really excited about this; if I don't unlock before 9 or so this evening I will have broken my previous record for continuous wear ~36 hours! That was truly a struggle and fairly unpleasant, this is closer to a rewarding journey. There always seems to be something, though. Our bodies and minds aren't designed for the easy accommodation of a chastity device. I lay in bed for hours after that but simply could not fall back asleep. I'm going on day 7 from my last orgasm, and my thoughts are inundated with fantasies and the dichotomy of the urge for any sort of release against the desire to remain locked longer. Queue erections. Count to 100, back down again. Sit on the toilet. Repeat. After about 3 hours I gave up on sleep for the time being. It's almost 2:30 here. True to my word I will not wake up my KH and ask for an unlock unless I am genuinely in too much distress to continue. I'm happy to have found a way to mitigate those nasty nocturnal erections but I am frustrated with my inability to fall asleep. I'm perfectly fine with a night punctuated by toilet trips to subside a raging erection with an hour or two of sleep between, but I have to fall asleep in the first place to have that. I fear I may have some long nights ahead of me as my body continues to adjust.
