A Chastity Husband Manifesto
The following is an insightful piece written by Tumbelina, a chastity advocate. I wanted to share it with you all since the article seemed to resonate with my feelings and observations about chastity and orgasm control. I don't have a way to get in touch with the author but I'd be happy to provide further…
I think one of the “enlightened” attitudes with unintended consequences revolves around masturbation. In the olden days it was frowned upon biblically and subsequently in society-you’ll grow hair on your palms if you masturbate etc. Then the enlightened attitude around sex came in around the 60s or so that everything is ok as long as it doesn’t hurt someone. And so masturbation is ok, no guilt involved. But it does hurt someone-the male with less emotional involvement misses out on a truly close relationship and of course the woman for the same reason. I wonder if this information is being taught in Sex Ed classes. Anyone know?
This is right on the mark. Penetrative sex is an intensely emotional experience for the partner being penetrated and a physical experience for the partner doing the penetrating. Male masturbation takes what little emotion was part of penetrative sex and diminishes it greatly. This site is all about getting a handle on male masturbation and allowing the male to enjoy the overwhelming emotions that come alongside loving penetration by his partner.
My ex used to complain about how porn use was making men impotent. It seems male (over)masturbation creates the same kinds of concerns for you, Emma.
I think you've addressed this before, but could you explain again how women, who often have higher sex drives than their lovers, are going to deal with keeping a man's organ unused for days at a time? It seems like male chastity would be difficult for a woman whose drive is higher than her male lover's.
Chastity with us isn't about not having sex. On the contrary, we have lots of sex!
I typically desire sex two to three times a week and even when life gets busy, we usually are able to stick to that. Additionally I like to give and receive oral sex a couple times a week.
For us, chastity is about directing his attention and helping him focus on me. When we have sex, it ends with me satisfied and him happy that he satisfied me. He doesn't typically orgasm when we have sex together. His satisfaction is derived from compersion and the understanding that he pleased me.
It does take some time to separate the male orgasm from sex, several months in our case. We still have slip ups from time to time but for the most part he is very conscious of when he he needs to pull out and rest to compose himself. We don't even need the cage most of the time.
He is getting very anxious right now since we are doing the chastity challenge which is set to end on Valentine's day. To say that he is anxious for Friday to be here would be an understatement.
That was incredibly well written and informative. My own frequent masturbation habits are explained well as is the negative effects it has on my relationship. My wife is extremely vanilla with a non-existent libido, and I view masturbation as my only outlet. Recently, I have discovered prostate stimulation and that in itself is a whole new world. Now that I know the importance of these two elements, the best place for me would be in a device and her bottom during pegging sessions. Maybe one day.
It is definitely a fascinating dynamic. It has elements of femdom such as his orgasm is less or not important and he is taught to get pleasure from your pleasure.
Emma, you are teaching us men who want to even the score for women a different kind of feminism: one which starts in the bedroom. This opens the door to happier women who are able to derive more enjoyment from life because the gender power dynamic becomes more fluid. Happier women equates to more trust and mutual support between the sexes. And I do think when women get orgasms on their terms they are much happier. Your techniques won't fit all relationships, but there are plenty of men out there who would be good matches for women who have desired male partners focused mainly on the woman's pleasure instead of their own pleasure.
Full disclosure: many women I meet are turned on by the idea that men get most of the pleasure in the bedroom. But that is a socialized norm. It may not be true in the future. Male dominance may have some roots in the animal kingdom and from our close relatives, primates, but it is not immutable. It is an adaptation. Humans can choose to role play female dominance in the bedroom because it helps to more closely bond men and women. And happier women means less strife in the larger society.
I'm looking forward to Friday too. Normally I'm not locked anywhere near this long but my wife and I thought it would be fun to try.
So I'm also looking to hearing about your and Kevin's experience with Chastity Day.
I'm also kind of curious to know how the two of you handle the slip ups you still have.
My wife and I don't really have slip ups. We generally have sex every 5 to 10 days and when we do I'm free to have orgasms when ever I want. It's just the times in between that my wife wants to help me control.
We are the same way, wife helps me control the in between sex times. It has made a big difference in relationship, I think my wife has been surprised. I am not locked 100% of the time, but stay chaste even when I am not. We also do lockups occasionally for an extended time as my wife says, to reset things.
Hello Emma and all the blog participants.
I've stumbled upon this blog accidentally and loving every minute reading it.
I find comfort and reassurance through reading the articles and comments, about the exciting road me and my husband took.
Thank you and keep up the wonderful work.
Welcome! We look forward to learning about the road that you and your husband have chosen with you. Would you mind telling us about it in the introductions section?
This is simply outstanding! I don't know how I missed this one until now, but I am sure glad I found it. Just outstanding.
"Masturbation in a relationship is selfish and self serving on a man’s part… Chastity allows for balance and is a selfless act that a man should be willing to embrace if he truly loves his spouse and wants her to find ultimate fulfillment and happiness."
THIS. This could be anyone's 30 second elevator speech on the benefits of chastity.
You've mentioned that you're Dominant to your main partner and more submissive to the new one.
I feel that it could be a solution to my marriage, but I don't know how to make my wife understand it.
Would you have any book or text that could help me with it?
No. I don't have any books or texts that I can recommend but I wish I did. If anyone knows of any, pchorus and I would love to read it.
After rereading this article from a year ago and from what I have learned and experienced, this is very true.
Men that masturbate often probably aren't fully invested in their relationship. It doesn't have to be cruel to help the male not masturbate, but can be done in a more loving way.
It is also true that masturbation or orgasm by a woman is not the same as the male. I think it is due to hormones after orgasms. Men's hormones are different after orgasm than a women's. Women can still have that bonding and caring feeling, while men lose it.
I don't think it should be a goal that men never orgasm, they just shouldn't waste them on masturbation. The wife should help control that.
I read recently that some religions either before or after marriage, the wife has a talk with the husband about how she knows he masturbated before marriage and how as a couple they will prevent this habit in the future. Kind of embarrassing!
