Began playing as a couple with some generic knockoff device around two years ago. It was too awkward and ill-fitting to be worn outside of the bedroom (or even over night) and we stopped using it after a few months rather than continue having to remove it well before we (she) wanted. Both of us liked the idea though, and we continued to bring it up often enough that I began reading Chastity Mansion threads to understand the practical aspects. We discussed it more, and over the past year my girlfriend has patiently helped / encouraged me to measure for a custom device and become comfortable wearing it. I'm now in a custom Cherry Keeper w/ Headlock, and as far as we can tell it fits close to perfect. I'm able to sleep without waking through consecutive nights, and I experience practically zero morning discomfort. Teasing isn't painful, and the rest of the time I'm truly able to forget about it. Washing and urinating no longer seem to take much more time while caged, and physical activity is fine --- the other day we hiked close to five miles, with no chafing issues. I've grown accustomed to her seeing me in the skimpy (but practical) pouch-style underwear I once found embarrassing, and I don't instinctively cover my caged crotch with my hands when she walks in on me peeing or peeks into the shower. Most importantly, she is able to forget about my device ... it doesn't distract from our intimacy --- and even then, it rarely is touched by her. I decided to finally create a Chastity Mansion account while she's gone tonight (maybe she should join also?) --- we recently somewhat acknowledged the basically-FLR dynamic we've drifted into, and she revealed right before leaving earlier that she is “no longer interested” in chastity “just as a kink” --- I'm sure we'll talk more when she returns, but we spoke long enough for her to elaborate. We've been discussing our relationship alot lately: her need for conversation, touch, attention... I've also been casually wearing my cage again over the past week “on my own” and sort of testing some new rings that finally shipped for comfort. Even with the keys on the dresser, she seems to think the results have been impressive. Chores and organization projects are being completed; she's receiving spontaneous mini massages; I'm cooking meals and running errands. With everything taken care of, we've been able to enjoy our time together more than before. She hinted earlier that, knowing myself (and she knows me), making this work would likely mean slowly moving toward me being in chastity more or less at all times. And while she stopped short of an ultimatum, it was made clear that she has absolutely no interest in continuing to use chastity only on occasion for sexual teasing. I think things have suddenly been such a dramatic improvement from her point of view that she now genuinely wishes to see if we can use this as a relationship tool. We've talked about “doing” this before, but when I think what it would be like to have no excuse of discomfort for taking it off and to always go right back into it, it feels very different. Especially with me always being in chastity aside from cleaning and play as our likely eventual goal. Thank you for reading this far, and if anyone is interested I can post updates. Mostly here to learn, but ask any questions and I'll respond. I would especially appreciate any advice from those who first experienced chastity as a kink before more fully integrating it into their lifestyle, and how they handled that change.
