/a, user of Oxy cock cages and friend, answers our questions on how to get the best device for you. 
Chastity devices come in a variety of styles, not to mention their sizes and other features.  The first thing to consider is what effect you're trying to get.  Is this something you expect to wear for a few hours while your keyholder is letting your arousal build before getting released?  Or is it something that you will wear 24/7 to control your urges or simply to give up complete control to your keyholder?
 
Let's focus on the cage style of chastity devices, as opposed to the devices that look more like a woman's chastity belt.  The cage style is less expensive and easier to maintain.  It works by locking a cock ring behind the balls to the tube or cage that covers the cock.  The balls are left to hang out from between the cock ring and the cage.  If the gap between the two is smaller than your balls, you won't be able to take off a properly sized cage.  Some men are small enough and get flaccid enough that they can slip their cock out of the cage but their balls are still trapped; adding a few spikes to the inside of the cage can help deter the man from trying to pull his flaccid cock out of the cage.
 
Let's look at some of the choices.
 
  • Q: Steel or plastic?
 
Both have their advantages.  Some say you first need to decide how long you will locked into the cage.  Most steel cages are more open and are easier to keep clean if you're going to wear it continuously for days or longer.  An open cage allows thin rods or other thin objects to be poked through, or liquids to be dripped onto the caged cock (like hot wax).  Most plastic (or silicone or resin) cages are more closed so they allow even less contact with the caged cock.  That can be immensely frustrating.  Some people prefer to have a clear or transparent material so they have a better view of the caged cock, particularly during edging play.
 
Both metal or plastic cages can be very secure if sized right.  But think about what would happen if the key is lost.  Maybe you could find a locksmith to pick the lock.  Plastic cages can be broken or cut with little or no risk to the caged cock.  Soft silicone cages can be cut off with ordinary scissors in case of an emergency.  That isn't an option with a metal cage.
 
If you choose a metal cage, you would be well advised to choose one that is completely stainless steel so it doesn't rust.  Stay away from non-stainless steel cages that are chrome plated after they're welded - the plating may be thin or rub off, leaving the non-stainless steel beneath it to rust.
 
If you choose a plastic or resin cage, remember that it isn't as strong as steel and they can break more easily.  A poorly designed resin cage can break under the repeated stress of the cock trying to get erect.  Yes, it really happens.
 
 
  • Q: What about length?
 
Let's start by thinking about how long you would normally get when erect.  If you try to get longer than the cage, you'll tend to push the cage away from you.  That also means the cage is going to pull on your balls unless you've been stretched.  Some would argue that this is perfectly acceptable because the discomfort will inhibit your erection. 
 
Longer cages tend to be more noticeable under your clothes.  Longer cages also tend to have a noticeable curve downward.  Very short cages don't have enough length to make much of a curve.
 
 
  • Q: Are there any other details of the cage design that affect how it feels?
 
Cages that look like a series of rings might feel more constricting than those that look like bars that run along the length of the cock.  When you start to get erect, you may feel the rings more as the cock head rubs past each ring.
 
  • Q: Padlocks versus integrated locks?
 
A cage that locks with a padlock can be cut off if the key is lost.  A cage designed for a padlock can also  be locked with a plastic one-time-use lock.  But the padlock can have a noisy problem of clanking against the cage as you walk.  Many people prefer the integrated locks.  They make a solid connection to all of the necessary parts of the cage so there is nothing to move around.   They're also more compact and are less noticeable under clothing.
 
 
  • Q: What about the size of the main ring?
 
Pretty much every website that sells chastity cages has a FAQ about measuring yourself for the ring that sits behind your balls.  It sounds easy - tie a piece of string behind your balls so it's comfortable but not so loose that everything slips out, then cut the string and measure it, etc.  The problem with this is that it doesn't account for the gap between the ring behind your balls and the first ring in front of your balls.  Some cages leave more of a gap than others, and it's this gap that really controls whether or not your balls will slip out of the cage.  One particular brand name device included a variety of spacers that could be used with a variety of main rings to choose the best fit for each individual.  Most devices do not provide that customized fit.  So unless you can find a device that's sold with multiple spacers or one that's made to your custom dimensions, be prepared to experiment a little with different sized rings.
 
 
  • Q: What about spikes?  Are you serious?
 
Yes, spikes can add another dimension to your confinement.  A few spikes added near the base of the cock will make it difficult or painful for the man to slip out of the cage.  Spikes can also be used to add further incentive to avoid anything that would normally make him aroused, as a cock swelling during an erection would make the spikes bite into him.  That can be used to train the man to limit his arousal, or it can be used by the keyholder as punishment along with edging.

Excellent article. To the question of getting the right size of base ring, I would only add that in my experience with nine chastity cages, the curved ring will probably require an additional 5 mm. of girth (circumference). I’ve got round rings, flat rings, metal and plastic, and the curved rings too. For all but the curved ring, I measure (and am comfortable) at the 45 mm. size. If the cage is designed with a curved ring however, I need to have a 50 mm. size. Curved rings will feel tighter than the ones that are a perfect circle in the same measurement.

Hi Tim,
The ultimate way is to do a Prince Albert Piercing. You won’t need your balls to secure the cage anymore.
