The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Chastity Cage

What is chastity?

Chastity is an advanced kink where men wear a chastity cage, belt or other chastity device, to prevent themselves from getting proper erections, masturbating and being able to have sex (excluding receptive anal sex). Women can also participate in chastity by wearing a chastity belt, but the kink is commonly associated with men wearing a chastity cage. 

Chastity can be enjoyed as a solo activity, or with a partner who will become your keyholder. Your keyholder is the person you will submit to, as they hold the key to your freedom and disobeying them is the easiest way to kiss that freedom goodbye.

If you are curious about the world of chastity and are thinking about trying it, whether you want to try chastity yourself or with your partner, keep on reading for tips on how to pick the right chastity cage.

What to consider when choosing the right chastity cage?

When it comes to picking out a chastity cage, you will need to consider a few different things before you make your purchase:


The size of your chastity cage is the most important thing to consider both for functionality and safety. The main issue with a loose chastity cage is that it won’t work properly, as the cage can slip off accidentally or be taken off without using the key. Chastity cages that are too tight can cause discomfort, and extreme cases cut off blood flow to the penis. If you experience negative symptoms and you suspect that the base ring is too tight, try using a larger one.

If you are unsure on how to measure yourself for a chastity cage correctly, we have a guide available to help with properly measuring yourself and picking chastity cages that will fit you properly.


The material your chastity cage is made with should be the second thing you consider as this will affect your chastity experience heavily. The three common materials used to make chastity cages are resin, metal and silicone.

Resin chastity cages are lightweight and firm, making them a great option for beginners. 3D printed chastity cages also fall into this category.

Metal chastity cages are typically heavier and sturdier than other cages, with some stainless steel cages being fairly lightweight. Metal cages are a great choice for people wanting a secure chastity cage with some weight to it.

Silicone chastity cages are unique due to the flexibility of the material. This also makes them the least secure type of chastity cage, so beginners should wait until they are more experienced with chastity before trying a silicone cage out.


The design of your chastity cage can be the most important aspect of buying a cage, just not from a functional perspective. Even if a chastity cage fits you perfectly in the material you want it in, you could hate how it looks which means you wouldn’t even consider buying it.

This part of the process is completely personal preference, so make sure you pick something you like the look of (especially if you’ll be wearing the cage a lot). With lots of different designs and colours available, you’ll definitely be able to find a cage or two that you love the look of.
