Let’s be honest. Most of us love attention. Especially from our sexual partner.

But sometimes, they get distracted by other pursuits – video games, cars, comic books.

What can you do to get more of the attention you crave?…

If you have a partner with a penis, one way to ensure they dote on your every desire is to take away their control of that particular body part.

And that’s where cock cages and male chastity play comes in.

Here is some information on how male chastity works, as well as 7 cock cages I’ve found that work perfectly for keeping your partner’s attention.

What to Know About Cock Cages and Chastity Play

Here are the basics about chastity play:

What is a Keyholder?

Most male chastity devices include a lock and key. The keyholder is literally the person who holds the keys, so that the wearer cannot get unlocked without permission.

It should be noted that although cock cages are often referred to as male chastity devices, they can also be used by transwomen and non-binary individuals with penises. Keyholders can be a person of any gender, though in porn they are most often depicted as women.

Individuals who like to wear cock cages for solo play may not have a person who plays the role of keyholder. Instead, they may place the keys somewhere that requires effort to reach, or they may put the keys in a timed safe.

Why do People Use Male Chastity Devices?

There are many reasons why an individual or couple may want to bring a chastity device, such a cock cage, into their sexual lives. For some, the partner who is not locked up in chastity gets a sense of ownership, power, or authority over the partner who wears the cage. This can help to set the right mood in a Dominant/submissive scenario, and lends itself to a variety of roleplay options.

The keyholder may use this power for orgasm denial, deciding when and if the locked partner can be released to have an orgasm. Orgasm denial often includes a lot of teasing to keep the locked partner aroused, despite not being able to pleasure themselves or engage in certain sexual activities.

Other keyholders enjoy being on the receiving end of pleasure, and with their partner’s cock locked in a cage, they can relax and enjoy stimulation orally, manually, or with toys, blissfully ignoring their partner’s desire for pleasure.

Either of these activities may be coupled with the desire to prevent the wearer from either becoming fully aroused or masturbating. Some individuals, whether coupled or not, like to wear cock cages to reduce their masturbation frequency. They find that having orgasms less often leads to more intense orgasms when they do have them.

Remember that all of these activities should be entered into with consent from both parties. The partner in chastity should also be enjoying the sense of being owned, being able to serve, or being punished.

Another form of BDSM play that is often incorporated with male chastity is cuckolding or cuck play. You can engage in either chastity or cucking without the other, but some people enjoy combining the two. Cuckold play is when a couple consensually agrees that one partner will have sex with other people while the other partner abstains. In some cases, participants find chastity devices to enhance the enjoyment of being cucked.

Is Wearing a Cock Cage Scary or Uncomfortable?

A cage can certainly be intimidating at first, and some people are afraid of wearing one if they haven’t tried it before. The truth is, however, that wearing a cock cage is generally safe and should not be uncomfortable most of the time.

The cage tends to prevent full arousal because there is insufficient room for an erection. Because of that, it can be somewhat uncomfortable to become aroused while wearing the device, but it should never be painful.

When flaccid, a well-made and well-fitting cage should be quite comfortable to wear.

Which Material Should the Cage be Made of?

You have a few different options for cage material:

  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Silicone

Plastic and metal are the most popular options. Plastic cock cages are made out of polycarbonate or other body-safe plastic. If you are allergic to latex, you’ll want to check the materials a plastic cage is made from to ensure there’s not latex in it.

Metal cages are generally made of stainless steel, but you can also find some made of titanium.

Silicone cock cages are comfortable and easy to put on because they are the only cages that are stretchy, but they tend not to work well and can come off unintentionally, which really defeats the purpose. For that reason, there are no silicone cock cages on my list of top male chastity devices.

Whether you go for plastic or metal is a matter of personal preference. Either is fairly easy to clean. Metal cages tend to be heavier and provide a sense of weight or pulling that some wearers enjoy. Keyholders may prefer the look of one or the other material, and plastic cages sometimes come in different colors.

Make Sure You Get the Size Right

Unless you are having a custom cock cage made, it’s a good idea to buy a cage that includes several different sized rings and spacers. This will allow you to get a good fit that is neither too tight nor risks coming off unintentionally.

As for the cage length, it’s best to go for the shortest length you can fit your penis into. Many people start with a cage that is really too long for them because they think the extra space will be more comfortable. But extra space just makes it more likely that your cock will start to become aroused in the cage.

Is it Okay to Pee or Ejaculate in a Cock Cage?

Absolutely! Most cages are made with a pee-hole at the tip of the cage so that you can continue wearing it while urinating. Some individuals are also able to ejaculate via prostate or vibrator stimulation without being fully erect.

How to Put on a Cock Cage

Here’s the quick list of steps for getting into the cage:

  1. Trim back the pubes so they don’t get pulled accidentally, but it’s best not to be fully shaven your first time, to prevent irritation.
  2. Add a bit of lube to the inside of the device.
  3. Insert one testicle through the ring first and then the other; it may help to pull excess scrotum skin through first.
  4. Push the flaccid penis through the ring.
  5. Insert the penis into the tube part of the cage and lock it up.

Note that the specifics will vary for different cage styles.

The Stocking Trick

When it comes to putting on the cage, a bit of lube (and a trim of the pubes) works wonders. But there’s also a trick you can use to get the cage on quickly and easily.

Tie a small knot at the end of a nylon stocking, and thread it through the hole at the end of the cage (the pee-hole). Then, put the penis in the stocking, and pull the stocking through the hole. The smooth nylon will help the penis to glide into the cage easily.

Now that you’ve got the know-how, let’s look at the male chastity devices…

The Best Cock Cages for BDSM Play

Here are the 7 cock cages I’ve found that stand up to keeping the cock locked down:

  1. CB-6000
  2. CB-6000 S
  3. DOMINIX Deluxe
  4. CB-3000
  5. CB-6000 Chrome
  6. Master Series Rikers
  7. CB-X

1. CB-6000 Male Chastity Cage Kit

Check Best Price →

This cock cage is one of the most popular chastity devices available. It’s made of latex-free, medical-grade polycarbonate and is comfortable for long-term wear. The design includes ventilation holes and an opening for urination or ejaculation.

The CB-6000 Male Chastity Cage Kit comes with four different spacers and U-rings to get the right size. You’ll also get a storage case, metal padlock, five temporary plastic locks, and a sample of lube.

This cage is available in either clear or pink. If you’re a “grower” rather than a “shower”, I suggest that you try the CB-6000S Short Male Chastity Cage Kit listed below instead. You want the fit to be based on your flaccid penis, not your full size when erect, and this device is 3.25” long with a 1 ⅜” internal diameter.

Pros:

  • Quality construction
  • Includes multiple sized spacers and U-rings
  • Lightweight and easy to wear for long periods
  • Available in two colors

Cons:

  • Takes time to get the fit right with the spacers and rings
  • Somewhat pricey

2. CB-6000 S Short Male Chastity Cage Kit

This cock cage is pretty much the same as the above chastity device, except that it comes in at only 2.5” in length rather than 3.25”. That doesn’t make it any less exciting, though. Short cock cages are perfect for individuals who have a comparatively small flaccid penis size and grow when erect. The internal diameter is the same at 1 ⅜”.

Like the original CB-6000, this cage also comes in either clear or pink. Pink tends to be a favorite color for sissification or feminization play, or you can just get pink because you like the way it looks.

Pros:

  • Quality construction
  • Includes multiple sized spacers and U-rings
  • Lightweight and easy to wear for long periods
  • Available in two colors

Cons:

  • Takes time to get the fit right with the spacers and rings
  • Somewhat pricey

3. DOMINIX Deluxe Chastity Cock Cage

Unlike the two cages above, this cock cage is made of metal rings. The material is hypoallergenic stainless steel, so it’s safe for long-term wear. The cage is 3 inches long and includes one metal ring for the testicles, meaning this cage either fits you or it doesn’t. There’s no size customization like the CB-6000 line has. That being said, if the size works for you, some individuals prefer the weighty feel of steel.

This cage is probably not good for long-term wear because it can’t be fitted to a proper size, which is safer for all-day use. The exception is if you happen to be the size of this cage’s dimensions. If the fit isn’t perfect, it can still be used for short-term chastity or D/s play.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Open design for teasing
  • Comfortable

Cons:

  • No option for size adjustment.

4. CB-3000 Male Chastity Cage Kit

This cock cage is made of the same high-quality, comfortable materials as the CB-6000 and CB-6000S. It offers a slightly different fit, with a 3-inch length and a lower opening that makes standing to urinate a bit more feasible.

The inside diameter is 1.45 inches.

Pros:

  • Quality construction
  • Includes multiple sized spacers and U-rings
  • Lightweight and easy to wear for long periods
  • May be able to use at urinals
  • Available in two colors

Cons:

  • Takes time to get the fit right with the spacers and rings
  • Somewhat pricey

5. CB-6000 Designer Chrome Male Chastity Cage Kit

Here’s another cage from the CB-X line. The reason so many chastity devices from this brand are on the list is because they are undeniably the best when it comes to off-the-shelf cock cages.

This one is unique in that it offers the shiny look of a metal cage with the lightweight durability of polycarbonate. The dimensions are the same as the original CB-6000—3.25” length and 1.375” diameter.

Pros:

  • Pretty chrome finish
  • Quality construction
  • Includes multiple sized spacers and U-rings
  • Lightweight and easy to wear for long periods

Cons:

  • Takes time to get the fit right with the spacers and rings
  • Pricey

6. Master Series Rikers Stainless Steel Locking Chastity Cage

Screenshot taken from Lovehoney.com
Check Best Price →

Like the DOMINIX Deluxe Chastity Cock Cage, this is a stainless steel chastity device that comes in one size and offers a nice, weighty feel for those who like that sensation. There are a couple of differences though. It’s a bit pricier than the Dominix steel cage, and it has a solid vented construction rather than rings.

The dimensions are 3” long with a 1.5” internal diameter and a 2” ball ring diameter. These dimensions are likely to accommodate most men around average size. That being said, those on the smaller side will likely find this cage a bit too roomy as far as diameter and ball ring size go.

Pros:

  • Comfortable
  • Quality construction

Cons:

  • No option for size adjustment

7. CB-X The Curve Male Chastity Cage Kit

Screenshot taken from Lovehoney.com
Check Best Price →

This cage features all the pros of the other CB-X cages (like the -6000 and -3000), but it is made for individuals who are clearly showers and have a larger flaccid size. The length is 3.75”, and the diameter is 1.5”.

Pros:

  • Quality construction
  • Includes multiple sized spacers and U-rings
  • Lightweight and easy to wear for long periods

Cons:

  • Takes time to get the fit right with the spacers and rings
  • Somewhat pricey

Top Cock Cage? It’s a Tie...

Because the world of individuals with penises is split fairly evenly between “growers” and “showers”, I’m recommending both the CB-6000 Male Chastity Cage Kit and the CB-6000S Short Male Chastity Cage Kit.

The CB-6000 line is one of the best options for a customized fit without custom cock cage prices. It’s still a bit pricier than some of the other options, but for the quality and all-day comfort, it’s so worth it.

You can get either size of this cage in pink or clear. It’s always nice to have color options.
