Cooler weather, leaf peeping. Pumpkin spice everything, and men locking their dicks for 31 days. Yes, it’s Locktober again. I was curious how this started. I couldn’t find any definitive information. It’s unclear to say the least, but I did find several sources that were relatively consistent. Cut to the chaste (great name) summed it up most concisely:
The History Of Locktober
The answer to the question—who created Locktober, remains murky. Many attribute the idea to a Tumblr blogger. Locktober was mentioned in a post on a blog called “Keep Him Locked: A Wife’s Guide to Male Chastity and Cock Cages” in 2017. However, I found a post from 2015 in the forums at orgasmdenial.comabout Locktober. A member posting there using the handle submaleslaveuk seemed to claim credit for the event. Still, there is no definitive answer to who originated the idea of thirty-one straight days locked in chastity during October.
As best as can be ascertained, either 2016 or 2017 seems the first year Locktober was widely observed. So, despite who first coined the term or originated the idea, it seems fair to say that this year will be either the fifth, sixth or seventh annual observance of Locktober.
At this point in my life, Locktober is just another month. I’ve been through 4 of them without unlocking in between, though the first was special. I’ve been into chastity play for ages, but it was August 2018 that I was finally locked for good. I was supposed to be locked through that Locktober to start and was excited to participate. I always thought my kink was rare, niche, and odd. But seeing thousands and thousands of locked cocks was, ironically, liberating. I was never unlocked after that, had no desire to be unlocked, and had 2 men who liked me locked (okay, Trip put up with it at first).
Personally, I’m thrilled to see so many men exploring the kink. Even if it’s only for a month, and even if it’s a needed excuse to do what they really desire, I think it’s fantastic.
Kink should be explored. Finding out what makes us tick is a journey everyone deserves to undertake. What attracts you to being locked won’t be what attracts others most likely, and that’s just fine. It matters that it works for you.
I wish all participants a fantastic Locktober and that all your kink desires are fulfilled. I’ll be there with you, cheering you on. Who knows, you might end up, like me, never being unlocked again.
