Turtling an issue?

Discussion in 'The Tower' started by Giles_English, Jan 15, 2017.

  1. I recently tried a device with a very snug fit... not tight, just snug. To my surprise, after a few hours, it triggers a reaction in my dick, which retreats inside itself, then gets jammed in the tube. Does anybody else experience this?

    Apparently this phenomenon is called "turtling" and may well be a defensive reaction. It certainly happens when I get into a hot bath...
     
  2. I've had this but better when i ordered a shorter cage
     
  3. I thought my new cage was perfect. Has a pa prong securing tip to end of cage. Turns out it gets a lot smaller quite often and began to pull on my piercing.

    So yes this happens, I had thought I had accounted for it but not nearly enough.

    This should be a warning for members thinking of buying their first cage. Take heed and buy one much shorter than you think you need.
     
  5. Even small is not small enough...

  6. @sillymaid@sillymaid's pictures show that shorter isn't really going to help!

    I think the 2 main take-homes are that if you turtle:
    • Avoid fittings that stress your penis and make it turtle.
    • Avoid tubes so narrow that a turtled penis gets stuck
    Anybody else got experience or wisdom to offer?

  7. I find having a urethra insert stops the chastity falling off.... and the smaller the cage stops loose skin getting pinched when it grows and shrinks.
     
  8. I wear this cage - super short - you can look in my gallery for real life picture
     
  9. Turtling has been a problem for me too, particularly because, not being circumcised, after a few cycles of turtling and expansion, my foreskin would end up peeking out the front of the cage and rub against underwear, which quickly get unbearably painful.
    The problem went away as a side effect of using a Tetherspout to prevent pullout. Nowadays, I can't imagine using my HTv2 (where the foreskin pinching problem was the worst) without a spout.
     
  10. One thing I don't see talked about is the testicles going up inside the guy when you try to put on a testicle trap chastity device. I saw this happen right away and after a couple of experiments, I got the best results from tying off his testicles with a small ribbon. Once I have the ring on, I can take the bag of frozen vegetables to get him soft so the cage can go on and I don't have to worry about his testicles going up in him then, either. He almost always gets hard when I touch him there. Once he's fully locked up, I can pull on the ribbon to loosen it and take it off.

  11. This of course is a natural action when the weather is cold. The penis and the testicles retrat into the body to maintain heat. In the same way, when hot the penis slightly expands and the testicles drop further into the cool. All of which is a problem when using a none pierce chastity devise.
    As someone who needs a magnifying glass at the best of times turtling is a serious problem !
     
  12. Love your cage!
     
  13. I believe that you have a longer plastic urethral tube, I had one that was shorter and made of steel that felt good, but I would turtle back off the end of often enough that I stopped wearing the cage.

    Some seem to disappear inside them at the drop of a hat whilst others need a crowbar. :)
     
  15. I have a small cage and turtling does occur but not like it did 4 years ago when I first started wearing a cage. It still occurs though. Even goes into hiding when my wife wants to play with it because it knows it will just be teased. There is not much you can do about it other than remember that chastity is not about the cage or it being escape proof. No ball trap devices are escape proof unless you have a piercing that is locked onto the cage.
     
  16. Can't imagine why they hide when you Mistress's come hunting for them, probably scared!!!!!

  17. Turtling:
    The process by which a penis, feeling shame for its absolute inadequacy in length and/or girth, tries to completely retract and disappear from human sight.

  19. I am a turtler (is that a word?) but with a PA device it holds the head out and there can be no turtling. I have definitely shrunk in a tube and then as the penis unshrinks the head stuck to the tube. It is not very pleasant.
     
  20. This is fascinating! I wonder if there is a limit to how close fitting a device can be.
     
  21. Do you think a PA attached to a micro cage would stop the turtling or just migrate the PA?
     
  22. Do you have a secured PA device?
     
  23. I got a.smaller.base ring, that is much tighter, it took time to get used to but I.haven't turtled with the smaller.ring
     
  24. I got a wider tube this time. No turtling.
     
  25. The penis is rather maleable,as long u can squeeze it(completely flaccid) inside the cage and wear the device without any discomfort its the best fit.
    Its really amazing how short it could go as shown here
