I started my chastity experiment to see what impact, if any, it might have on my relationship with my Wife. My Wife swings wildly from submissive/docile to dominant/aggressive but she tends to be more on the submissive side.
One night, while having sex, I found myself unable to perform. This was devastating to my wife. She thought I was no longer attracted to her. Actually, that couldn't have been farther from the truth. The problem wasn't her - it was my overactive libido and imagination coupled with this wonderful thing called the internet. I was handling things on my own, so to speak, WAY too frequently. In fact, I had handled things earlier that evening and, as far as I understand, with increased age comes longer refractory periods.
Not long after this, I decided it was time to do something about my itchy trigger finger and I started reading about chastity devices. After much research, I settled on the CB6000 and started searching out a store that sold the device. My shopping experience was blogged earlier in this post.
Shortly after I started limiting my ability to freely have orgasms, I found that I started paying more and more attention to my wife and the things that she enjoys and appreciates. I returned to the courtship activities, such as telephone calls for no reason, back rubs without expecting anything in return and bringing her flowers "just because." I began carrying more of the load around the house, such as doing the laundry, cleaning the kitchen, washing the dishes and vacuuming. All of this I did freely and willingly without any input from my wife.
She took notice. She often would come downstairs and ask me to just sit down and relax. I couldn't. I wanted to impress her. I wanted her to want to let me have a release. This was quite a change.
I started flirting with her again. More desire for release started bubbling over and, again, she took notice. On night, I distinctly remember her asking me "Why have you been so horny lately." I just told her how beautiful she was but I couldn't bring myself to discuss the lock that I was wearing on a daily basis whenever I was out of her presence.
Fast-forwarding a couple of months, things are still going well. Actually, things are continuing to improve. I continue to take on more and more responsibilities around the house. She is getting to spend more time relaxing. And just tonight - she hugged me and said: "I really enjoy not arguing with you like we used to."
So - yep, I believe an impact is being felt. Could I have done it without the CB6000? Maybe. Did I do it before I owned the CB6000? Nope. Impact felt.
