One of the most common questions I get about the topic of advanced chastity is about piercing.
The thinking behind it is fairly straightforward: many of the more secure, serious and then expensive chastity devices require the man to have a piercing in his penis to the device can be locked into place properly.
Probably the most common combination is a Prince Albert piercing (where the securing pin enters the penis through a hole in the underside of the head and exits through the urethra), but there are devices compatible with frenum and appalling piercings, too.
So, this raises a couple of questions.
First , why would anyone do this?
Well, the answer to this is simple: it makes the devices much more secure. Most chastity devices – even full belts – can be escaped by a man who's determined to do so, provided he uses enough lubrication and can end a little pain. It's possible there are some devices for which this is not true but I've yet to come across one.
But a device that's secured with a piercing is as secure a chastity device as you're ever going to get, simply because the penal is held prisoner with a metal pin that actually passes through the flesh. And the devices' design means there's no way to remove the device without removing the pin first, unless you're willing to tear your own flesh (very few men would want to do this, I'm sure).
And for men serious about chastity, a secure device is part of the thrill. There is something about being locked in a secure device that really does turn men on. The feeling of having no control of their own orgasms is intoxicating for them.
Just bear in mind: no chastity device is or ever can be 100% secure, meaning no man is ever kept in a chastity device against his will.
There's no doubt some devices are more secure than others, and it's likely many could only be removed or escaped from with the help of tools.
But the tools required are simple and most men probably have them already lying around in their garage. Moreover, removing the device would be perfectly safe, too, so long as he took care.
Even a device which uses a piercing pin to keep the penis secure can be removed simply by cutting the pin (which could be done simply and safely with a pair of tinsnips or wire-cutters, say).
The second reason for the piercing is that for many men and women it's symbolic – and the symbolism is very powerful. In a large proportion of relationships where they practice male chastity, part of the dynamic is the woman "owns" the man's penis, or at least has all the "rights" concerning it.
In these cases having the penal pierced, whether the man really wants to have it done or not (bearing in mind he always has the choice in reality, and so it's just part of the game) is symbolic of the power-exchange.
Of course, you do not need to be pierced to enjoy chastity, and you do not even need a device. The idea you do is just another myth propagated by various people who have their own agendas for wanting you to buy into this idea.
My husband, John, was pierced but he never really settled into the device, so we took the piecing out and he currently wears a Lori # 2C, which is designed for un-pierced men. At present he is in long-term orgasm denial and the reason he does not escape is he does not want to.
Male chastity is really about two people who enjoy whatever dynamic they choose to implement and is just a case of becoming informed about safe, sane and sensible practices.
