October is a special time of the year for chastity enthusiasts, with the first day of the month signalling the start of the Locktober tradition. If you haven’t heard about Locktober before, it’s quite simply a challenge where you attempt to lock yourself up in a chastity device for the whole month of October.

Keep on reading to learn more about Locktober, as well as some advice if you want to give it a try.

Participating in Locktober

If you know much about chastity play, you will know that it usually involves submitting control of your sex life to your keyholder. You may not have one, and may be wondering how you can participate in Locktober by yourself. We’ll cover how you can take part regardless of your personal life.

What is Locktober?

Regular Locktober

Traditionally, Locktober is all about locking yourself in your favourite chastity cage or chastity belt and seeing if you can make it to the end of the month. That’s it!

Make sure you choose something comfortable, as the goal is to remain locked in chastity for the whole of October with no breaks. If you are new, you may want to consider something made of resin or silicone as they are usually a lot more comfortable than metal cages. Make sure you can easily use the toilet and clean yourself in the shower while locked up too, personal hygiene is very important when it comes to long term chastity.

Submissive Locktober

If you are lucky enough to have a master or a keyholder, why not try dedicating your Locktober to showing them your gratitude. If they are happy for this to happen, you get to enjoy a whole month of embracing your inner sub!

If you like this idea but can’t think of what to do, here are a few ideas on how you can serve your master:

  • Being a good maid and doing housework like cleaning, dishwashing and laundry
  • Offering them services like massages whenever they please
  • Complying to their requests in their bedroom, doing your best to completely satisfy them throughout the month

If participating in Locktober was your master’s idea, it’s the perfect time for you to remind them why they keep you around!

Solo Locktober

This is specifically for people who are single, or are in a relationship but their partner has no interest in acting as your keyholder. You may need some assistance to make sure that you don’t cheat.

A good example of external assistance would be a self locking box with a timer. All you have to do is put your keys inside, set the timer and then lock the box. Just keep in mind that you may have to destroy the box in case of an emergency, which is the main downside of using a self locking box.

Beginner Tips

Locking yourself in chastity for one day can be hard, which can make the idea of locking yourself up for 31 days daunting. If you know that you want to participate in Locktober, it’s a good idea to start practicing so you can handle being locked up for long periods of time.

Make sure you choose a cage that you can comfortably wear during your everyday activities, you don’t get to take it off to go to work or the gym. You may need to adjust what you wear during the month so that your cage doesn’t create a bulge in your clothing.

While the goal of Locktober is to lock yourself in chastity for the month, don’t feel obliged to do it if you start to become uncomfortable. You can take what you’ve learned from the challenge and apply it to your next attempt at Locktober.

Chastity Basics

Knowing more about the basics of chastity is a great idea for anyone thinking about participating in Locktober.

Choosing Your Cage

With so many types of cages available, you will have to make sure you pick the right one if you want to lock yourself up for a whole month. Things to consider when picking a cage include comfort, ability to use the toilet and discretion under clothes. Unless you have a specific reason for choosing a metal cage, it’s a good idea to go with a resin or silicone cage as they are typically more comfortable. At Chastity Cage NZ we have a wide range of chastity devices and cages which are made from the best materials for affordable prices.

Measuring Accurately

This is very important to get right, as a cage that doesn’t fit properly can cause discomfort or even be dangerous to use. If the base ring is too big, the chastity cage can just slip off and won’t work properly. A base ring that is too small can be uncomfortable, with the possibility of causing injury by restricting blood flow to your genitals.

Take the time to measure yourself accurately so you can enjoy chastity without having to worry.


Now that you know more about Locktober, it’s time to prepare for the next one if you are interested in participating. Make sure you find a cage appropriate for the 31 day challenge and start practicing so that you can lock yourself up for longer periods of time. If it’s your first time, don’t stress if you don’t complete the month as you can always try again next year!
