Hello everyone, I have been posting in the journal section to a thread called “Before the beginning.” I have been self locking for the past week and abstaining from self pleasure for two (I think it’s been two weeks) in an effort to show my girlfriend the benefit that chastity could have on our relationship. I have been a much more attentive, affectionate, and loving boyfriend. When it came to sex I only focused on her, I felt no urge to cum the first time, or the second time, but she told me she wanted me to so I mentally let go, and kept going and eventually did. She was in complete ecstasy both times we had sex, and this past 4-5 days has been filled with an abundance of smiles and joy from her. She told me that I have been so much better and I’ve been making her feel cherished. I have not told her I lock up during the week when she’s gone, however she does know the reason for my behavior is that I abstain from self pleasure. She really appreciates it and really enjoys it, she has told me several times. I feel that here in another week or so I am going to be ready to tell her I have been locking up during the week. I’m waiting for the current mood drop to end, and for a new week of love and affection before I tell her “part of the reason I have been able to do this is chastity” but in different words. She already knows I have a cage, the last conversation I did everything wrong. I wore it without her knowledge and handed her the keys, with no real idea what I wanted her to do. She said I could do it, but she didn’t want anything to do with it. After a new week of intense love, affection and a newfound focus on her. I want to tell her about the cage. However I want to be ready. I am just going to mention it. I got a new cage from the one she knows about, so I have to say that somewhere in there. What should I say? How would you answer follow up questions like: Why do you like it so much? So this is why you’ve been acting so different? You want me to do this? Babe I already told you I don’t want to be a part of it! Can we just not talk about it anymore please? So you want me to change? What other questions or statements can I expect from her? Any help is greatly appreciated.
