The iron ring
At the hopeful beginning of a marriage there is the symbol of the ring - often with the engraved initials of the other partner and the wedding date. In earlier centuries this ring was made of iron. And only the woman wore it as a sign that she had passed into the possession of her husband and his family. Often she wasn't even asked.
Rings made of noble metal - often signet rings - were reserved for the upper class and mainly for men. But women of the nobility also wore jewelry rings made of fine material. The tradition of the wedding ring as we know it today only began about a thousand years ago. As we shall see below, this development is not yet complete.
Today, by exchanging the rings, the man takes the woman and the woman takes the man as his own. Or maybe it is better to speak of mutual acceptance. Each partner accepts the other as he is and with all the good and bad qualities that he thinks he knows. And agrees to meet the needs of the other person - in good and bad days - and to accept them. This is a wonderfully romantic moment and a truly bold promise. Because we are making this declaration at a moment when we do not yet remotely know its scope and the associated risks. Fewer and fewer couples succeed in doing this for life. Most fail at the challenge.
Cock caging is one possible solution.
It strengthens and deepens the seriousness of the mutual bond and reconnects what threatens to break. But this time it is the man who wears the iron ring. ?
As the base of a cage that controls and restrains his sexual energy.
