mcdull Can I ask what is the purpose of thigh band except this makes walks in smaller steps? And how does it make you more effective in preventing masturbation comparing with only the belt on? Lastly, is the thigh band making you more feminine? Thank you.
The purpose of thigh bands is to prevent me spreading my thighs wide in an effort to allow some space between the shield of the chastity belt and my skin. Such space can permit finger insertion to provide some limited stimulation. It is uncomfortable and distracting to do and is insufficient to allow me to approach climax. Thigh bands with the connecting chain (or padlock) make this impossible and so the cycle of frustration is much shorter and less of a problem. So in answer t your question, yes, they make attempts at masturbation harder though even without them, my belt makes it impossible for me masturbate to completion.
The connecting chain alone is sufficient to prevent this while minimizing my normal stride very little. The padlock is more limiting but my partner appreciates the way I walk when it is in place and since I wear the belt for her, I am happy to do this. She only applies the padlock in the evening and it is removed first thing in the morning.
I personally do not believe the thigh bands add to my femininity. I believe I am 100% feminine in the first place 🤣
