For the last few years, Mrs Edge and I had taken a break from serious chastity play; that is, instead of 24/7 for months at a time, we kept it to just short playtime. A weekend, or a week, maybe even two or three here and there. I’ve mentioned this before; there wasn’t anything wrong, it’s just that after more than a dozen years it was getting stale. I know, I know — when it’s new, you can’t even imagine that happening, but it’s like going to the same restaurant every single day. It’s still good, it’s just that after a while you start wanting a change.
Anyhow, we’re discussing it again.
Since the discovery that the inexpensive A272 stainless steel device that I picked up last year is one of the most comfortable, convenient, and secure devices that I’ve tried, the incidence of play has increased. We haven’t used the plastic CB3000 in ages; it took a while, but now that metal devices don’t look like they are put together with old plumbing parts, Mrs Edge is appreciating the look of stainless steel. The Fort was sexy as hell, but the weight was a problem, and Mrs Edge found it to be exceptionally annoying to throw her leg over me at night while sleeping, and meet resistance because the device was in an odd place on my leg.
And here’s an interesting consideration: The Fort, like the CB3000, etc., has a padlock. The A272 has one of those little 6mm brass integrated locks, so there’s nothing in the way. And while Mrs Edge used to enjoy tugging on the lock once in a while, the convenience of having one less bit to fiddle with is a huge plus for her.
In the past, I’ve had my own lock because sometimes I’d be trying something and would want the ability to remove the device to adjust or repair as needed. When we played, however, Mrs Edge used her own padlock, and my emergency key is wrapped in tamper-evident tape, which I carry on my car key ring. With the integrated locks, it’s s similar arrangement: I have one that I have for research and development use, and there’s another one that we both have a key for.
This past weekend on a “date night” (yes, we still have those), it came up through a misunderstanding in conversation that she should keep *both* keys to the lock; that is, I wouldn’t even have possession of an emergency key, wrapped or not. She would unlock me for weekly cleaning (and play at her discretion), and that would be it.
Now, I’ve never used an emergency key, and it’s not unusual for me to forget it at home once in a while. In fact, last week, I neglected to even put it on my car key ring for the entire week. The A272 doesn’t have anything to be modified, there are no spacers to change, and everything has already been sanded and polished. There’s nothing left for me to do.
But not having a key at my disposal at all? To go all day, every day, for weeks, maybe months with not even an opportunity for access to a key? The idea of turning that absolute control over to her was surprisingly hot for both of us. Remember, on these devices, there’s no padlock, no locking pins, and certainly nothing to be broken or cut. That cage is not coming off without actual power tools.
Naturally she expressed some concern about my having an accident at work or something, but as we discussed it, I began to wonder if it made a difference. I mean, if the accident were serious enough, I probably wouldn’t have time to discreetly unwrap a key and remove my device, anyhow.
So, do any of you forgo an emergency key altogether? How has that worked out?
Even though we all know better, the idea of permanent chastity is still hot.
