Specific cleaning of leather chastity cages
We need to add a separate section for cleaning leather chastity cages because leather is quite porous and cleaning, as well as maintenance, is quite different from metal, silicone and plastic cock cages. Needless to say, it is recommended that cages not be shared between people (really, what's the point), but leather toys should not be shared by people under any circumstances. Leather cages will require special care and attention to cleaning, and you will need to be able to devote the time to cleaning and maintaining them if you want to be able to use leather chastity cages, or cock cages with leather on them.
When removing a leather cock ring, you need to follow all of the guidelines we mentioned above, as well as the special care that comes with cleaning a leather toy. First, you need to get a strong foaming cleaner and a small brush. Even a toothbrush with firm bristles will do - and with it, you'll need to wash and scrub the toy. Unlike silicone, metal and plastic cock rings, you should never soak your leather in water when cleaning.
After cleaning, you can wipe the toy with a 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol solution or spray it with a strong (and body-safe) antibacterial spray. If you use rubbing alcohol, you'll need to schedule a secondary rinse after cleaning to make sure none remains on the device. Once you have cleaned your device, you will need to make sure it is completely dry. Putting leather back on while it's still wet can cause rot or even mold, which no one wants.
From there, you can use a body-safe leather care product to ensure that the leather doesn't deteriorate, which will keep it in as close to its original condition as possible. It is important to be able to clean leather toys effectively and properly in order to extend the life of your leather penis cage. If you don't take care of your leather penis cage, you will find yourself in a world of trouble rather quickly.
We talked about shaving earlier, but we want to emphasize this. You don't have to be completely shaved if you wear a chastity device. During hair growth, the skin secretes an oil that helps with hair growth, and this body oil can cause some irritation and some skin problems. Moreover, it will make you itchy and put you in a world of discomfort because when you wear the device, you will not be able to scratch and you will inevitably end up doing a strange little chicken dance in the middle of your workplace as you desperately seek comfort from the itch. However, it is advisable to keep the hair cut short. Long hair and a change in position could result in hair getting stuck in the device and pulled out at the root, which can cause immediate, sharp pain.
This should go without saying, but if you're not having fun and the hassle of wearing this chastity cage becomes more than it's really worth, then you need to remove it. Don't make a big deal out of it, because if you don't commit to a device like this, misuse can get you into trouble later. You may decide that the device doesn't work with your current playmate, or that it has become a bit mundane. There's nothing to stop you from taking it off and enjoying some well-deserved freedom to put it back on a few months later. If not, you should reconsider your decision.
