Are there long-term side effects of long term or permanent chastity cages?

The long-term effects of wearing a chastity device can vary depending on the individual and the duration of use. However, there are several potential side effects that could arise from wearing a chastity cage for extended periods of time or permanently.

One possible side effect of long-term chastity device use is skin irritation, chafing, or even injury to the genital area. The device may also lead to problems with hygiene and urinary tract infections if not properly cleaned and maintained.

Another potential issue is that long-term use of a chastity device may cause atrophy (shrinking) of the penis and testicles due to lack of regular erections and stimulation. This can also lead to a decrease in sexual desire and function.

Psychologically, prolonged use of a chastity device may also have effects such as increased frustration, anxiety, or depression. This may be especially true for individuals who are forced to wear a device against their will, rather than voluntarily.

It's important to note that permanent chastity is an extreme form of BDSM play, and should not be taken lightly. Before making the decision to engage in long-term or permanent chastity, it is important to have an honest conversation with a trusted partner or a mental health professional who can help you evaluate the risks and benefits. It's also essential to choose a high-quality device that fits properly and is comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and to follow proper hygiene practices to avoid any potential complications.
