Just thought I would straighten things out with our Lori journey for anyone who is interested in buying a metal device or something from Ms Lori. Ms Lori For the best part I have nothing but respect for Ms Lori. She has amazing insight to the world of male chastity and (IMO) has the best belt-free devices I know of. However! Do be aware that she is a stern Mistress and takes no crap whatsoever from men... fullstop! Unfortunately this can come across as quite brash when speaking to women who are purchasing devices for their men. Because I am well aware that Ms Lori has a unique hold on the market, I decided it was "safer" if pet dealt with Ms Lori after our device was not to our satisfaction, because I felt I was too angry and would possibly not be very tactful if I spoke to her again! First Ordering When we FINALLY made our choice, after numerous informative communications with Ms Lori, we went for a #9. I specifically wanted a tethering ring on the device, and knowing someone who previously had the same order, I was happy to go ahead. Measuring We measured REPEATEDLY over a week (possibly more). I am the daughter of an engineer and the wife of an engineer... I know how to measure accurately and I know the importance of repetition. We made so very sure that the measurements we sent were (IMO!) 100% accurate. The Wait Devices usually come with a 90 day turnaround expectation. I think ours went to 110 or so. The thing that MOST annoyed me on the wait was that once the device was shipped, it was not traceable. I really wanted to be able to track that item from the moment it left Ms Lori, to the moment it was in my hands. Let's face it, it's 700$ worth of item. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention... the email I received on the day of shipment read something like "your device has been shipped, there is no tethering ring due to it being the first made out of our new, lighter material, and we assumed you would be ok with that". I paraphrased obviously... but I was not best pleased. No-one asked me if this was ok, or gave the the option to have the heavier item with tethering ring. Why? The Delivery Gutted. It was too long. Despite however many measurements we took, it was not right. The diameter was perfect, but pet also felt the teste ring was a little loose. The Aftermath This was a highly emotional time for us, and I do think Ms Lori forgets how involved people become with the importance of chastity in their lives. Rightly or (most probably) wrongly, we had a lot of expectations when this device arived. It would turn up, I would have immediate control, it would be wearable 24/7 and our lives would descend into utter D/s bliss. Whether or not it had anything to do with the device, or we just happened upon a bad spot, we began to have quite traumatic relationship problems. Especially when it came to anything D/s. The next step I can't remember when our device first arrived, I think it was May (I will try and look it up!) so for it to take until October to re-order is a fair amount of time and Ms Lori made sure she told pet exactly what she thought about that. The original comments we received were that the device was unalterable. We would have to return it, sell it via her site, and use the money to buy a new one. We were not happy. After a few consultations it appears the device may be possible to be altered, but it would cost 400$. Annoyed, but just wanting this all to be over now, I have told pet this is fine, just deal with it and get it right! Re-measuring We agreed this time with Ms Lori that we would take photographs of the measurements so that she would be happy they were correct. As far as I can see in the photographs, the measurements read exactly as I measured them the first time round! And here we are! We are now waiting for funds to become available for the alterations, and pet will be sending the photos shortly to Ms Lori to see what is to be done.
