Urology/health and chastity


Hello and thank you for reading.

I own a chastity cage/penis cage of the cb6000 series. Because t is not a natural thing to have ones penis enclosed by hard plastic I wondered if using it causes any long-term damage or change to my body. For example I wonder if my nutsack gets longer because everytime I get an erection the balls are pulled away from my body by the ring behind my cock and balls. Do those cages influence the body on long-term perspective (if they are kept clean of course)?

Thank you and best wishes



There is no official medical data one way or the other on this device.  My personal opinion is that using it takes a chance on possible short and long term damage.  Any time you deliberately interfere with a bodily function, there is that risk.  

Since there is no test or study data, you will have to use it at your own risk.
