CHASTITY DEVICE: STEEL VERSUS PLASTIC VERSUS NYLON? WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE AND WHY?


Whether you are new to the world of chastity devices or a seasoned user, you may be wondering which material is best for you – steel or plastic


In this article, we will explore the pros and cons of each type of chastity device so that you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you.



WHAT IS A CHASTITY CAGE?


A chastity cage is a device that is used to prevent sexual intercourse or masturbation. It is usually worn by men and can be made from either steel, plastic or more recently 3D printedin Nylon. There are many different designs and sizes of chastity cages, but they all essentially work in the same way. The cage is placed over the penis and then locked in place, preventing any kind of sexual activity. More info on this link.

So, which one should you choose? 


Well, it really depends on your personal preferences. Some people prefer the look and feel of steel cages, while others find them to be too uncomfortable & heavy. Plastic/Nylon cages are usually more comfortable, but they may not be as strong or durable as steel ones. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide which type of chastity cage is right for you.



STEEL CHASTITY DEVICES


A chastity device made of steel is a better option for long-term wear. It is more solid and durable than other materials, making it less likely to break or become damaged. Steel is also less likely to cause skin irritation, making it more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. 


Since it is rust proof, you do not have to remove the cage why showering. Most of the steel cages come with an open design, which is an easy access for cleaning.
Once you find a good fitting, steel cages can be very comfortable as there is less chafing. 



Be Careful of what type of style you are purchasing, there is a variety and the best one you want is “Stainless Steel 316L” - It is medical grade and does not rust. Do not buy a metal of Zinc Alloy cage as those are not skin friendly, which is a threat to a proper locked up experience.


Most cages sold on Aliexpress or Amazon have not been vetted based on the raw materials used and their origins. Buy at your own risk.

At oxy-shop atelier we only use Stainless Steel 316L. If you have any doubts or questions, please reach out. 



PLASTIC / NYLON CHASTITY CAGES


Plastic cages can be used for novice users or for short term sessions such as tease & denial. Usually significantly cheaper than their steel counterparts, it is slightly less comfortable as chafing between the skin and the device can happen easily when it is too tight. 


There might be a hygiene issue for plastic cages due to their fully enclosed designs. The cages are in contact with the skin very closely and it might be hard to reach breeding bacterias grounds.


When choosing a plastic cage, bioresine material based is the most comfortable. It’s like a thick coat of wrap around your cock, and isolates it from the world like a vacuum cocoon.

At Oxy, we offer Nylon 3D printed chastity, which is a great compromise between steel and plastic. It offers the solidity of steel and the lightness of plastic. It is versatile and comfortable for long term wear, easy to clean and pass metal detection once you combine it with an “air lock”. Pricewise, it is comparable to a steel cage, yet coming with advantages such as colors painting or accessories compatibility. 



Which one to choose? Pros & Cons 


If you're considering a chastity device, you may be wondering whether to choose a steel cage, a plastic or Nylon one. Here are some things to consider when making your decision:


-Weight and bulk. Steel cages tend to be heavier and more bulky than plastic ones, which can make them more difficult to conceal under clothing.


-Cost.Steel & Nylon cages are usually more expensive than plastic ones.


-Comfort.Some people find steel cages to be more comfortable than plastic ones, while others find the opposite to be true. It's really a matter of personal preference. Yet, most of oxy clients prefer the Nylon option in terms of comfort. 


-Hygiene. Steel & Nylon cages are easier to keep clean than plastic ones, since they don't rust or corrode and have a nore vented design. 


So, which is the better choice for you? 


Ultimately, it depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you're looking for a light and discreet device that's easy on the budget, a plastic chastity cage may be the way to go. If you're willing to spend more and don't mind a bit of extra weight and bulk, a steel cage may be the better option. If you are looking for the best of both worlds, Nylon it is.
