Sentinel Male Chastity
Device from Tickleberry:
23 August 2005
I have had the Sentinel in my possession just over 2 weeks now. We bought it
as a play toy to spice up our bondage play - Below you find my review and some
pictures we made.
Look and feel:
It looks and feels great! It a piece of jewellery for the jewels. I have to
say that the Sentinel is a very beautiful male chastity device. Made of shiny
chrome plated steel it gives a very solid impression. It is one of the most
beautiful piece of genitalia jewellery I have ever seen. Quality of
manufacturing is top nodge. When in place it is very pleasing to look at. The
weight is comforting and reassuring. When body tempered from using it it fells
like wearing an expensive well made watch, -but off cause this time not on the
The device consists of a cage, a ring and a lock. The inside of cage length is
75mm and the diameter is 40mm at entry and 25mm at the tip. The second part is
the cock ring. To ensure a snug fit I ordered an additional tighter 40mm ring
as a complement to the the 45mm diameter ring.
As the a-ring opens for fitting it is very simple to put on. No problems what
so ever, unless as in my case you try the smaller ring. I can wear both rings,
but the 40mm ring is in fact a bit to small and is a no-go for long time wear.
Using the 45mm ring however it is very comfortable and wonderful to wear. The
weight of it is a great advantage. You are constantly reminded of its presence
So how about safety. Well as always that is an
issue of anatomy and size. Erect I am 18 cm (7 inches). Given the 7.5 cm
length of the cage this means that I will only be allowed 42% of my full size.
When at ease I am 5-6 cm (2-2.5 inches). This is just under the size of the
cage. In some extreme instances (i.e. when very cold) I get a bit smaller. So
far the weight of the cage has kept me almost at a constant 7.5cm with no room
for erections. I have been able to pull out once, after a very cold shower
(just to see if I could). Once you are out however there is no way of getting
in again. So, if you really want to you could get out, but your loved one will
know, as there is no way of getting in again without the keys. For us it is a
matter of trust - and I would just not try it if I gave her a promise not to.
So in essence, if you are a CB3000 user, and are able to pull yourself out,
you might be to a bit small flaccid for the Sentinel. If however you for size
reasons are a Curve user this is the thing for you!
So the statement by the Tickleberry; "While you are denied, the polished metal
curves of Sentinel chastity device will encase and caress your cock with
unyielding restraint", is indeed true in my case.
The cage's design is not just very beautiful, it also caters very well for
good hygiene, ventilation and urination. Urination however is best done
sitting as precision is close to zero. After urination the best way is simply
showering your genitalia. No problems to have a bath or a shower. So, there
are no probelms with hygiene!
Wearing and using:
During the first few days I used it after work. It feels fantastic. My partner
loves the look of it (as do I). She is very pleased to see me in my Sentinel
and leather chaps. Can't say that it doesn't feel good. Actually it feels
great! So since we got it I have had it on after work, during evenings until
bed time. Last Thursday was the first night I used it while sleeping and it
has been my "pyjamas" ever since. Sleeping was a bit dificoult first night
(mostly because it made me sexually aroused). Now a few nights later I have no
problems what so ever (once at sleep I sleep very heavily). Friday night I was
even wearing the Sentinel and a lockable leather hood with no other holes but
for breathing through the nose. Very exciting indeed! Slept like baby! Since
Friday after work I have been wearing the chastity device 24/7 (it is now late
Sunday evening) and I still love it!
I am a very active person, socially and in terms of physically activity. So
far I have wearing the device throughout the following activities;
- long walks (very comfortable)
- biking (got my testicle skin pinched once - changing position solved that)
- going to (vanilla) parties (very exciting)
- shopping, going to cafés and restaurants (very nice)
- sleeping (no problems)
- jogging (my usual 7 km route in 28 minutes was no problem). Don't forget to
pad the lock or - padlock jumping when running resulting in quite a noticeable
clinking sound that does not really fit a young man in shorts and t-shirt
jogging in the park.
It is probably a bit more obvious under clothing than a CB-3000. You might
give the impression of being constantly semi-erect - or just well equipped.
The device is comfortable under normal clothes and under wear. Wearing my
usual bootlegged, low waist jeans produces no problems what so ever. Below you
can see how it looks with my normal under wear.
The only downside I have experienced was that when using the smaller ring,
some chrome came off it where the lock is inserted. This might indicate that
quality of the chroming process is not always 100%. As I most often use the
45mm ring I have not yet contacted Tickleberry on this issue. Not sure that I
will as it is really a no-issue at this point in time.
Service at Tickleberry is great. I live outside the UK but within the EU and
received my package by post within a week. Actually I could not believe how
fast delivery was. Also descriptions on the home page are realistic! Very good
experience as a whole!
Conclusion and thoughts:
I have to say that I am more than pleased with my Sentinel from Tickleberry.
Over all impression is simply that it is a fantastic device that does the job
AND it looks great! We bought it as a play toy - to spice up things, but we
might have a change in attitude occurring as these lines are being written.
Having slept in it 3 nights in a row, and being confined 24/7 since Friday,
not being restrained socially and physically in any way has made the mind spin
quite a bit. The thought of long time wear is quite appealing. Of cause some
practical issues arises should that be the case. Most critical issue is how to
solve my gym sessions. I usually go after work 4-5 times a week. I also do a
lot of social sports. I guess the solution would simply be to let my sport
hours be the only time out of confinement. It is off cause also in my
girlfriend's interest that I maintain good physical health. We need a smart
way to solve this. Another issue to investigate is how it works at the office.
After 54 hours of 24/7 chastity I have to say it is a fantastic head trip. It
is now very likely that I will be wearing it until next Friday - when the
Unihoc season starts again. If we cannot sort the gym issue out I might get 1
hour of freedom a day.
