Having tried several cages from steel coated, skin reaction so no good. Hard plastic CB6Ks chinese copy ,bulky to many pieces and not very comfortable with ring burn @24 hrs and then painful ring burn even with generic rings. Resin HT2 small, chinese copy this one could be worn upto 7 days before ring burn became an issue. All the above gave me terrible night time issues with erection causing the ring burn, I've even worn very tight underwear to try and stop movement of the cage being pushed out from behind the ring it did help a bit although i used a good skin cream all the time and feel that worked both for and against IE slows down ring burn as cream is there always but makes the whole cage easier to slide outward when erections start so strangling my nuts and increasing the burn. I have now tried 3 stainless steel cages the first wasnt secure enough and allowed my smaller R/H testicle to painfully escape so that has been binned. The second 45mm standard type ring and this is just too tight at the lower rear of the sack making the sack stretch extremely so this has been discarded. Finally the current one after taking in all advice from these pages is 45mm ARC body shaped similar to the HT2 with a short small cage, Now trying this with very little cream I found it to be comfy at first with signs of ring burn at 20 hrs so whipped it off applied cream and was or appeared to be recovered the following day so put back on no burn feeling either when fitting or after. Now comes 1st nights sleep, yes i was woken several times with only minor ring burn so very happy as fell asleep almost straight away didn't even get out of bed. I do stuff a large thermal sock down there to keep me warm as I do have issues with the sack shrinking with only a few degrees difference in temp. So 2nd day and small burn in the mid morning and this cleared as daily temps improved. that night I applied a small amount of cream and only woke once with erection, (There where others that barely registered so all great news) on that 1 occasion i went to the bathroom and wiped any remaining cream of with a wet cloth and pulled sack forward to move ring backwards. got up around 7am and washed and dressed I also put a fresh sock down there to see if it helped with the cooler temps, It did and no burn at all all day or evening (great) so off to bed and i again pulled sack gently forward to move ring rewards and was amazed to have some terribly painfull burn straight away to the point I had to beg Mistress for the key (it bloody hurt, and i have a very high pain threshold as well having had 9 slipped discs in the past) So cream applied and woke up a couple of time sore (no cage or ring) We went out for a 3 mile ish walk next morning and had some minor staffing but all good till i got home and we relaxed on the bed after dinner naked for a couple of hours. Now with fresh air getting down there soreness now becomes an issue so asked Jayne (Mistress) to have a look and there are some extremely red and sore spots, More cream applied and that night (still uncaged) the ring burn got extremely sore to the point it was painful to apply cream and kept me awake most of the night. Now this morning ive suffered quite bad and again asked Jayne to have a look when she came home at lunch, The red soreness that she saw has been replaced with a white ring where the stainless ring would have been and I say appears to be a bit crusty like a scab it's still very sore and if does not improve by tomorrow I think a doctor's visit may be on the cards What am I doing wrong this last cage appeared to be good not burning much (so much better than any other) right upto that last minute movement Should i use cream all the time ? as not using it I feel caused this issue but using cream will make it slide forward ? nighttime erections we not really an issue and i was hopefully thinking i was now locked permanently. Whatever I try I dont seem to be able to get it right, I do have a smallish sack which sits high so that doesnt help i dont think. What are your views please as i dont want to give this up but that might be the only option.
