I’m currently unlocked. I have no one to blame but myself. My intense need to stay locked has forced me to be unlocked. The irony is not lost on me. You’d think I’d know better by now.
I used to travel a lot for business, but as with most things, that pretty much stopped for several years during Covid. It’s only recently that it’s returned. After having the Steelwerks set off the TSA metal detector (newsflash; titanium will set off airport metal detectors), I’ve gone back to wearing plastic when traveling. Normally this has not been a problem as I travel with the werks and only wear plastic when in the airport and on the plane. My most recent trip, however, was a whirlwind of 3 cities in 3 days and it just didn’t seem to make sense to constantly swap devices.
I’ve always used the Evotion for travel. I did get a Kink3D cobra a few months back and decided it was more comfortable. The Evotion is great but it’s challenging to put on. It’s a bit of a pinchy puzzle. I’ve worn the cobra for a day or two, but not much longer. I downsized the original ring because I like a snug fit, which was probably my mistake. I forgot how grippy plastic can be.
All was well until the second to last day (about 72 hours in). I was getting a bit sore under my balks. I didn’t see anything, so I just presumed I didn’t lube the ring enough. The last day of the trip was uncomfortable, but I still didn’t see anything amiss. During the very long flight home, things got very uncomfortable. Because I’m an idiot, I just toughed it out. When I eventually got home, I was in serious pain and finally took the cage off to reveal a pretty significant wound under the ring. It hurt like a mofo.
I know better. I should have taken the device off sooner, especially with a new device I haven’t worn for extended periods of time. I would have been unlocked maybe 24 hours total, but now I’ve got to wait until I’m healed, which is probably going to be several more days. It’s better, but it ain’t healed yet. What is wrong with me? As much as I dislike being free range, 24 hours would have been so much better than the 5 days and counting I’m now forced to endure. I think I get too invested in my chastity. It’s easy to do for those of us who know we are born to be locked, but still, some rationality is required here.
It’s also not the first time this has happened, although that was back when I was first locked. It hasn’t happened in years, so perhaps I was lulled into a false sense of complacency. Whatever the reason, I should have taken the device off sooner than I did. I guess the take home is to listen to what your body is telling you and don’t try to power through. In other words, don’t be like me.

Been there, done that. Sucks. Sorry to hear it.

I am so sorry that you are now facing your consequences. However, I am still jealous of you being able to stay self locked as long as you do. I can barely make 48 hours. :sigh:
