What it's like to sleep in the CB

Got a great question about sleeping in the My-Steel, so I think that would make a good post, especially since my tired mind can't think of anything else to post. First off, for those who wonder, when I say I wear it all the time, I mean all the time, including to sleep. For those of you who have worn one of the Cb-xxxx series like the cb2000 or cb-3000, the My-Steel is MUCH more comfortable. You wouldn't think it would be, but it is. I would liken its comfort to similar to the feeling of wearing an athletic cup.

Some of you might have seen forum posts from people saying that full steel belts prevent erection. That really is not entirely true. Obviously, I can't get a raging hard on that sticks out in front, but it is possible to get a partial erection in the tube. A full blown hard on is not possible, but when it does, it's quite comfortable, almost like a gentle squeeze. It's not painful at all really. The main advantage to this over the cb-xxxx is that when one tries to get hard, there is no pulling on the scrotum, which is the main difference. Because this belt is secured at the waist, there is no pain at all from night time erections and I think that maybe all but one night, I slept comfortably and peacefully throughout the night, without getting woken by the belt. Most of you who have tried one of the cb-xxxx series know full well the pain that nocturnal erections cause, this pain would be due to the constriction on the scrotum. The My-Steel belt eliminates the problem and sleeping through nightly erections is quite comfortable.

I want to also say something about sleeping positions. Some people say that with a chastity belt, one can only sleep on their back. For me, this is not at all true. I can't sleep on my back, it's not comfortable for me. I normally fall asleep on my side, and this is perfectly comfortable for me wearing the cb. Also, I'm a very "active" sleeper, I move around a lot in the night so it's not uncommon for me to end up on the complete opposite side of the bed, with the covers somewhere on the floor. I wind up sleeping on my stomach, both sides, half on the side, half stomach, it's all comfortable in the cb.

One thing about clothing though, there were a few nights when it was hot, ok, hot for me, you people in Florida would laugh at me but I need a very cold room to sleep comfortably. Personally, if it's cold enough where I can see my breath, that's just fine as I like to get all snuggled under the covers. But there were a few nights when it was warm in the room, like around 70 degrees, which is uncomfortable for me to sleep in. On those nights, to keep cool I slept in just the belt. This wasn't all that comfortable as I find that it is most comfortable to wear a pair of briefs over the belt because the fabric from the underwear ends up going between the belt and my skin, and helps eliminate chafing. That's just me though but I thought I'd mention it.

Sunday Update

I know I haven't had much to say recently, but basically because that's because not much has changed. I have worn the belt continuously, less time out for cleanings. I can say that it's become quite comfortable to wear the belt, I barely notice it in my daily life and sleeping is very comfortable.

Some of the lining is still coming apart, but it hasn't been much of an issue since the metal underneath is pretty smooth, so it hasn't been all that uncomfortable. I am going to try to re-attach the lining, one of the readers suggested the 3m auto weatherstripping tape, so I might run over to the auto part store and see if they carry it and give it a try. As for actually wearing the belt long term, longest I've gone was 9 or 10 days (depending on how you count it) without removal for any reason. Even with showers, the belt was getting kinda nasty, so I did need to take off for a good cleaning.
