Measuring the internal cage diameter
This should be easy because you have already performed a similar task while taking the back ring's measurement. You will now evaluate your penis' diameter or girth.
Again, you need to be entirely flaccid for this measurement to be accurate, so unwind, think about something else that won't excite you, and then follow these steps:
The thickest part of your cock should be wrapped with a lengthy light-colored string that has been cut. This should be carried out around halfway up the shaft.
Make a mark on the string with your marker.
To determine the circumference, place the length of the string against your ruler.
Repeat the procedure an additional two times during the day. To determine your typical girth, add these measures and divide the total by 3. You may get the internal cage diameter by dividing this measurement by 3.14. Write down the number you received so you can remember it while choosing your cage.
The cage should ideally be filled as much as possible to ensure a perfect fit. When choosing, remember you don't want to leave too much space for your cock to develop or grow into the cage.
Measuring the ball trap gap
There is a gap of varied sizes between the cage part and the back ring on all ball lock chastity devices, referred to as "the ball trap gap."
There is a straightforward formula to determine whether to search for a more significant or smaller gap:
- Tight and high = Wider gap
- Loose and low = Smaller gap
If your balls hang low and a lot of skin covers them, you should look for a smaller space between the chastity cage and ring to trap yourself in.
You usually want a smaller space as your body adapts to long-term chastity cage use. This results from your balls beginning to dangle lower beneath the cage, necessitating a smaller gap to hold you firmly in place.
Avoid choosing a too-small gap because this might have adverse health effects, such as restricting blood flow. This will make you uncomfortable, which a well-fitted cage shouldn't do.
Pro-tip: Unless you have a solid reason to go smaller or greater, go with a 3/8-inch gap as the most chosen gap.
How to measure yourself for chastity cage
Step 1: Get ready
Ensure you have all the necessary tools before measuring yourself. You can use a ruler and a string or cord to measure yourself. Tape measures are not the best choice if you have trouble laying them flat against your body. Make measuring simple and more precise by using whatever is most convenient.
Step 2: Get comfortable
The next step is to get yourself in a natural, relaxed state to measure yourself. A hot bath or shower might promote excessive blood flow to the penis, resulting in an inaccurate measurement. If you measure in the cold, you will get a false reading on the other end of the scale. As a result, the purchased cage can be either too loose or too tight. You should measure yourself when relaxed, at ease, and in a temperature-neutral environment.
Step 3: Measure yourself
The first measurement will be made for the base ring. The cage's length will be the second measurement. Pushing the ruler up against your pubic bone will ensure an accurate measurement if you have extra stomach fat. The diameter of the cage is the third measurement, similar to what you did for the base ring. This measurement will help determine how tight the cage fits on your penis.
There is no need for any further calculations or measurements; you may now proceed to choose the right size for your package.
Choosing your size
It's relatively simple to choose the size of your ring and cage, albeit there is a slight difference between the two:
- You want the ring to fit as closely as possible to the measurement you got.
- For a snug fit, the cage should be between 1/4 and 1/2 inches shorter than the measurement you took.
- The cage diameter should be the same as or slightly less than the measurement you took.
It's acceptable to purchase a cage that is more restrictive than this article advises as long as you keep your health and safety in mind. Remember that you should never feel pain or discomfort when wearing a chastity cage unless it’s intended to do that. Suppose you're searching for a cage to wear over an extended period. In that case, we advise wearing it during the day and checking for any changes like discoloration, loss of sensation, or poor odor to ensure the cage is fitted correctly.
