I am trying to persuade my Partner to be my Keyholder. So far, this has felt like a fruitless exercise. I am very motivated to demonstrate my unconditional trust and commitment to my Partner and give him total and complete control of my cock and wear a chastity device. I have been interested in chastity for most of the time that we have been together. My Partner is put off by chastity and having the keyholder role in our relationship - he says simply that I am "weird" for wanting to do this. He wants me to be his "hunk" and not his "subbie". I told him that chastity covers a LOT of ground - as many dimensions as there are chastity devices in use! Also, that I don't need to be his "submissive" - just to submit my cock. We have been taking about chastity off and on for about two months - we have had three serious conversations about chastity. I gave my partner the book Male Chastity: A Guide for Keyholders, and I highlighted in this book where it said exactly what I think. We talked about this book for a short time before he let me know that he needed to get back to what he needed to get done that evening - a clear sign he was just uninterested... A little about him, me and us! We are a gay couple together now for more than eight years. My Partner is a prominent university professor - He demands clarity and brevity (my challenge). I own a technology company, and I am a bit more "exploring" in my thoughts and conversations. I am very quick to make decisions and very action-oriented. He is relatively more "thoughtful". We travel a LOT - about 8.5 million miles between the two of us in our careers. I telecommute about half of the week or more from home, and I make sure the laundry is done, dishes washed, bathrooms and kitchen clean, pets fed, trash out, lawn mowed, etc in the spare time I have - anything I can do for my Partner is worth my while. He gets an erotic "something" from me every day/night we are both home. His view is that we are there for each other - it's all about US. Clearly though, it is Him First, and I like that - and so does he, truth be told. I look forward to waking up next to my Partner and giving him a good morning kiss every day I can. I'm happy when he's happy - We're happy right now! I am "breaking in" a CB-2000 during the day when I am home and my Partner isn't - my Partner asks me to take it off if he arrives home early to find me wearing it. He is Not enthusiastic. I have been doing this several days a week for a few weeks - today was pretty comfortable - my skin is beginning to stretch a bit - finally. Today, I'm just a little itchy "down there" - I need to trim a few hairs - maybe we can do that again together tonight... So, stay tuned - I'll ask some questions and hope that someone here might help me sharpen my pitch to my partner. We are still in the "talking" stage of our chastity journey, but it seems so slow to evolve into action right now. I'll also keep you posted on chastity trials and tribulations if I can move my partner forward... Thanks for reading.
