The permanent chastity has been ordered! It is sterling silver, 2 1/2 inches long, 1 inch inner diameter, and has a tethering ring. It will take approximately 6 weeks as this is a custom made device. This journey will be a long one. Firstly, the device will requires a frenum piercing that, due to proper placement, can not be done until the device arrives. Then there is the required healing time, followed by a trial period to make sure the chastity is safe to use permanently. I see no reason why this particular chastity will NOT work. W/we have done extensive research on chastity devices since O/our experience with the Lori's tube. I simply got tired of throwing good money away. This chastity seems to be the answer to all O/our questions. Hygiene should not be a problem as the tube itself is loose enough to allow for cleaning yet snug enough to be secure. There should be no problem with it sliding, it is far lighter. It is much easier to conceal under all clothing as there is no testes ring pushing it away from the body. And if I want to really dress it up, I can even have it engraved!!!! Barring any unforeseeable problems, My goal is to have this permanent by this time next year!
