How To Measure For a Male Chastity Device: Life Isn’t a Cock-Measuring Contest…But Buying a Cage Definitely Is

Before making your cock cage purchase, the first step is to measure you (or your partner’s) penis to ensure a correct fit. Most cock cages consist of two components: a ring for the testicles and a tube or series of rings for the cock itself. The ring prevents orgasm, while the cage or tube makes erection difficult to achieve or maintain.

The ring component is sized using the diameter. It is important that the ring fit snugly around the cock, preventing the release of semen, without being tight enough to cut off circulation of blood.

Use a measuring tape or a piece of string and a ruler to measure the circumference of the penis just behind the testicles. For the most accurate measurement, perform this task immediately after a hot shower or bath so that blood is circulating actively in the area.

Divide the resulting measurement by pi (approximately 3.14) to obtain the diameter, as seen in the examples below:

Circumference behind testicles of 157mm (6.1 inches) ÷ 3.14 = cock ring diameter of 50mm (1.96 inches)

Circumference behind testicles of 141mm (5.5 inches)  ÷ 3.14 = cock ring diameter of 45mm (1.77 inches)

Circumference behind testicles of 125mm (4.9 inches) ÷ 3.14 = cock ring diameter of 40mm (1.57 inches)

If you’re still unsure, many of our products come with a set of 2-5 rings of differing sizes to allow for experimentation!

The size of the cage or tube that contains the penis is up to you and your partner. Larger, looser cages may allow for a partial erection while tighter, smaller ones prevent it entirely. Fans of cock humiliation might want to check out our line of “extra small” products. Talk with your partner and make sure to pick out a cock cage that is right for your dynamic!

If you’re new to chastity and not sure what size cage is right for you, a good estimate is between ¼ and ½ inch shorter than the length of the penis when completely flaccid. This allows for a feeling of being confined without being squeezed so tightly as to restrict or prevent blood flow or urination.


How to Choose the Right Male Chastity Device for Your Cock (or your partner’s)

Cock cages are like Cinderella’s glass slipper – it’s important to find the one that fits you or your partner’s penis just right. Our LockTheCock cages come in a variety of sizes and colors. Black or white make a dramatic statement, clear allows you a perfect view of that twitching, desperate organ, and pink adds that extra feminine touch for men who want to be reminded just how much of a sissy they are. Enforced chastity has never been so stylish!

For those who prefer a little extra sensation, a metal cock cage might just be the answer. A stainless steel device opens up a world of options for heat, cold and other kinds of temperature and sensation play. There’s absolutely nothing like the feel of steel against flesh to serve as a constant reminder of your captivity. Just be wary of going through airport security!

If a shock’s more what your locked cock is looking for, try a silicon cage with built-in electric capability. The keyholder keeps control of a remote that allows them to decide the number of shocks as well as the intensity and duration.

Mild electric shocks to his sensitive organ can be a stimulating addition to play, serving as either reward or punishment. Perfect for keeping your caged partner on their toes! Like our standard products, our cock-shockers come in multiple colors including dominant black, devilish red, and exhibitionist clear.

Cock cages are extremely easy to use and require minimal care and upkeep. If you or your partner are trying out enforced chastity for the first time, take a look at our safety & comfort page for more information about how to keep your cock cage clean and the cock it cages safe and healthy!

How to Put On, and Wear a Male Chastity Device

Once your cage has arrived, it’s time to get locked up! The keyholder should perform or assist with caging their partner – it’s a sensual bonding experience as well as practical for understanding how the device works. Plus, slooooowly slipping him into his cage and locking him up is a perfect opportunity for teasing!

There are two types of rings, hinged and solid.

To put on a hinged ring, open it to its widest extent and place it around the penis behind the testicles. Close the ring gently, making sure not to catch any skin in the hinge (unless you’re deliberately doing so as a tease or punishment!) You will hear a click when the ring is closed properly.

To put on a solid ring, first ensure that the penis is completely flaccid. Push the testicles through the ring one at a time; finally, bend the penis downwards and gently slip it through the ring. Using a small amount of baby oil or your favorite lube can make applying a solid ring a smoother process.

Once the ring is securely on – snug but not too tight – it’s time to add the tube!

Again, baby oil or the lube of your choice is a recommended tool for this step, as is making sure that the penis is completely flaccid. Adventurous keyholders can even apply ice or lower the temperature to make the cock tinier and the application process even smoother!

Gently rub (or have the keyholder rub!) the oil/lube all over the glans of the penis and then slide it slowly and gently into the tube. Attach the tube to the ring – most of our products use a series of pins to make connecting the two components extremely simple!
