Review of the Number 1 and 8A device
Firstly, I want to state unequivocally that the service Ms. Lori provides is nothing short of 1st rate. Correspondence was always smooth and clear and service was flexible and customised and very generous. In summary, you could not want better and I have never experienced better service internationally or domestically.
Anyway, onto the review of my device/s.
I started my venture into chastity wanting a visually pleasing but extremely secure device. I had researched Ms Lori's devices before and so had a fairly clear idea about what I wanted, so I measured up and ordered an 8B device. This was a relatively easy task, especially with the measuring advice Ms. Lori supplies on the website. The 8B also seemed like a good looking unit, very secure and suited my piercing (a PA piercing). Then the wait for a few months while it was made.
Upon receiving the device I was very excited and curious to try it on. However, upon advice from Ms. Lori I would have to 'take it easy' and use plenty of lubricant to give my piercing some time to get used to the new angles the locking pin applied to it. This took a good bit of time and at first I could only wear the device for a few hours at a time. So after a week my piercing became used to the new pin (especially as the pin was slightly larger than my piercing anyway). So I then tried my first go at wearing it 24/7.
However, after trying several times to wear it 24/7 I found that edema (fluid being trapped in areas which are pressed against the metal for long periods) occurred every time I wore it overnight and every time I became erect the fit of the device restricted my genitals from recovering properly to allow the edema to subside. I should mention that this is absolutely due in no part to incorrect manufacturing dimensions or device failure, the problem was that I did not allow enough room in my measurements.
So after a discussion with Ms Lori about making adjustments to the device (of which Ms. Lori kindly agreed to do free of charge!!) I sent off the device off hoping to get it back soon, enabling me to wear it 24/7. A few weeks passed and I received the package for a second time and tried the newly adjusted device on again. Sure enough, a better fit, but the same problems persisted. So, unfortunately I had to send the device back again (this time a financial agreement had to be reached-I was not expecting to get more adjustments for free!!). I must say that there was no fault in the adjusting process at the device workshop, it was all clearly to do with my underestimating the amount of 'ease' needed for my fit to work 24/7. So after persisting with trialling another bout of 24/7 wear I decided that my anatomy was just simply not able to cope with the restriction this device places on me, (no matter how much 'ease' is built into it) especially after erections when sleeping.
After discussing this with Ms. Lori again, she advised that I should try the device without the testie ring. I tried this and it was definitely much better and I could definitely wear the device 24/7, except that after a day or two, the weight of the device without the support of the testie ring was too much for my piercing to handle (it caused pain and inflammation). So again, I had to re-think using the device. I contacted Ms. Lori again with the problem I had and she then (to my great surprise) offered to exchange the device for another one. I chose the much simpler #8 and asked for a couple of bars to be added (which stop me touching myself) and this has proven to be successful as a device I can wear 24/7. I guess my anatomy is just not geared up to wear devices that are more 'restrictive' and the much simpler and lightweight customised #8 has been terrific. It keeps me in 24/7 chastity and comfortable. Finally I have a device I can now use properly!! I am not sure what it is, but down there, I personally seem to be very sensitive to restriction. Perhaps I am not the only one but never the less, a solution was found.
So in the end, I needed a much simpler device which did the job but was not the more fancy looking device which I first had in mind.
Having said this, I would recommend to anyone that is really serious about 24/7 wear, that you think carefully about the sort of device you get made. You may like the look of a device but it may not actually be the device you should use for 24/7 wear. My experience with Ms. Loris has been terrific (albeit slow due to my anatomical particularities), I am definitely not complaining about anything to do with purchasing the device. Simply, my anatomy does not allow 24/7 wear in a reasonably restrictive device, other peoples' genital anatomy may do, it's all a personal thing. Just don't be surprised if you need adjustments or need to change models. 24/7 wear is a serious business and requires absolutely perfect fit, or at the very least, enough freedom in the device to allow proper circulation and circulative 'recovery' after erections happen during sleep and so on. This is very important in my personal experience.
So, overall, I am really really pleased with my device, and the whole experience with Ms. Lori has been absolutely outstanding. Despite many setbacks caused by my bodily limitations with wearing a chastity device, I now have something I am really satisfied with.
If you are a serious chastity-worshipper and want something that is truly functional for full time chastity then Ms Lori Chastity Tubes are the way to go, without a doubt.
