Those who want to practice male chastity need to understand the importance of good hygiene. Male chastity can be very fun but it can also bring numerous risks. In order to enjoy your play without issues, it is important to know how to minimize or completely avoid these risks. Keeping your chastity devices clean is one of the imperatives you have to follow. This is why it’s important to know how to clean a chastity device properly.
The Most Hygienic Chastity Devices
In order to keep a good hygiene of your body and your chastity device, it is important to use only high-quality chastity cages and other chastity devices. A good device is safe for the body and you can clean it easily without a problem.
This is why it’s so important to choose your chastity cage carefully. The best ones are made of 316LVM Surgical Steel. This material is safe for the body and very smooth. These chastity devices are also sturdy and durable, which are some of the most important things you want your chastity cage to have.
Surgical Steel penis cages are also very easy to clean. The best thing about these male chastity devices is that you can fully sterilize them. This is one step beyond simple cleaning: sterilization removes all of the harmful pathogens and other stuff from the device, so it is fully hygienic and safe to use.
Cleaning Your Chastity Device
The way you clean a chastity device will depend on the material and how the device is constructed. Make sure to remove your device regularly and clean it fully. After you take it off, inspect it to note any scratches, tears or other problems you need to fix. If everything looks good, proceed with cleaning. Wiping your penis cage with alcohol or anti-bacterial cleaners is a good way to start but it’s not always enough. If your penis cage is a Surgical Steel one, you may wish to sterilize it in boiling water.
However, make sure to do this only if the device doesn’t have any tender parts and don’t do it too often. To fully sterilize a metal chastity cage, it is best to use an autoclave but most people don’t have this tool in their homes. For this reason, it is best to do regular cleanings with occasional sterilization. When sterilizing, make sure that your device can take it. Keep in mind that boiling and other forms of sterilization can harm male chastity devices made of softer materials so don’t use this approach. When cleaning, it is important to remove any buildup of dirt and bacteria from your penis cage.
When to Clean a Chastity Device?
Another important thing you need to know is when to clean a chastity device. Generally speaking, cleaning too often can cause little trouble so it’s much better to clean it way too often than rarely. At the same time, keep in mind that over-cleaning can cause some issues. For example, metal parts can lose their smoothness faster or get scratched. Flexible parts may get tears or break if you clean them too much or too often.
Of course, these issues don’t happen often if you clean your chastity devices properly and with a great care. However, keep in mind that cleaning them too often may sometimes cause problems. Not to mention that it would mean taking them off too often, which may be good for casual chastity play but not for those who want to fully commit to male chastity.
However, cleaning way too often is still better than cleaning your chastity cages rarely or not at all. It is best to clean a chastity device whenever you take it off and even in between. What does it mean? It means that even if you want to wear your chastity cage for long periods of time you need to take them off to clean them at least once in every few days. Generally speaking, the more often, the better. This is one aspect of male chastity play that you definitely don’t want to neglect.
Non-metal chastity devices can get dirty easily so make sure to clean them every few days, at least twice per week. Metal penis cages are better in this regard but it’s important to clean them at least once per week.
