I ask as when i first started wearing my cage i would wake often for the first week or two. does the body learn to ignore this pain while sleeping? I found that my nocturnal erections when they work me up, would take considerable effort to get to subside. typically requiring me to stand and walk around a little bit. these erections would not go away on their own with me just laying there in bed. it would get more and more dull throbbing mild pain from the blood flow issues and the cage ring acting as a cock ring to improve erections. normal (before sleep)erections in bed i can think of non arousing thoughts and they go away even when caged. obviously when a night time erection occurs things may get a little cooler than normal maybe a shade darker due to the blood loss. my concern is how long a nocturnal erection would last for and if it would have adverse effects on the testicles over time. I have noticed even going a few days without my cage "resets" my tolerance to sleeping with it on. my wife had me locked for the better part of 5 weeks at a stretch, then we vacationed and i got a 6 day break from the cage. only to return and it was as if i had never worn the thing. IE night time wakeup issues a half dozen to dozen times a night. what have you guys experienced with this?
