The discussion of chastity devices has been about their use in a relationship. Has anyone thought of using them solo to help regain balance?
For me, masturbation always happens in bed early in the morning when I'm still in that dreamy semi-asleep state. The problem is that my will-power and conscious control are greatly diminished in this state. I find it practically impossible to stop myself rolling over and... you know the rest.
Last week I ordered a cb-3000 male chastity device. It arrived on wednesday and I've worn it in bed every night since, so currently I'm on day 3. I keep the key in the bathroom which is a few rooms away. I'm thinking that if my will-power isn't strong enough to stop me from masturbating, it also isn't strong enough to get myself out of bed, go to the bathroom and unlock. So far it has worked like a dream. I awaken aroused but can do NOTHING about it (everything is encased in hard plastic), roll over and go back to sleep or get up for breakfast and a shower. The device even comes with optional spiky cuff rings that make it quite painful to be aroused.
I don't intend to use the device permanently, although it might end up necessary. Hopefully I can use it as a tool to make relapsing more difficult until my brain has balanced (with the help of the 4 hours cuddling I did today :)). Based on my experiences so far, I recommend trying this approach. There are so many ways it could be used: Wear it all the time and unlock yourself for daily washing, lock yourself up and give a trusted friend the key saying "give me the key back in 1 month", wear the device only in anticipation of the time of day or situation which is tempting, etc. The possibilities are endless.
I'll update my status each day on this thread, let's see how far I get!
