Chastity cages

Image

Its been a long time since I have been well enough to make a post here. Sorry for the lack of postings – but my health is top of my priorities

As some of you may have guessed from previous postings, I do have a curiosity when it comes to all things kink. I generally don’t practice it full time, but I have been trying to keep my partner locked up. Locked up and failing. So far, every chastity single chastity device we have tried he has been able to pull out!!

I am going to give a quick lowdown on what we have tried so far, so you can avoid them!

First up is Fetish Fantasy Extreme Chastity Belt and Cock Cage from lovehoney available here: https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=28547

“Experience complete control with an extreme steel chastity belt. Completely inflexible, this curved cock cage is designed to prevent erections while the 3.5 inch length limits growth, stopping physical excitement immediately. Adjustable and lockable.” reads the description. No mention of security. Firstly, the strap needs to be removed to be in with the chance of fitting this on. My partner describes this as the one of the most comfortable he has worn, and only mildly uncomfortable while erect. That’s right, it doesn’t prevent errections, especially if your testicles are low enough to allow plenty of movement. Unfortunately, if the testicles allow movement, you’re going to be able to slip out of this pretty easily. The only thing that is going for this is that it the balls cannot slip between the cage and the ring and thus cannot be removed without the key.

Next up is the Impound Gladiator Male Chastity Device https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=37647

This is one to avoid! It comes with three differently sized rings. They are described by my partner as the worst design he has ever seen. The hinge is painful with the silicone padding, and just as painful without. The smallest ring is unwearable and causes excruciating pain after just a few minutes. We suspect it is to do with the actual thickness of the ring rather than the size itself. It is quite substantial! The middle size ring is slightly better, but is escapable, and the largest ring has no chance of being secure! This thing is described by lovehoney as impossible to escape from. We have proved different – the angles are so bad that the testicles can easily escape end the entire device is removable. My partner was in a bit of pain due to the sharp edges on the device. Keep away from this one!

 

Next up is something called The Vice available on amazon via uberkinky / locked in lust http://amzn.to/2y9eFSM

We have seen reviews on the internet about this being a highly secure device with a great anti-pullout mechanism – brilliant (or so we thought). It arrives in a little pouch with what seem like a million bits. There are instructions but it is probably worth watching some youtube videos for it to make sense. You have to match up some of the parts with the tiniest of lettering – you’ll probably need to get a good magnifying glass even if your eyesight is perfect! The size of the cage is rather large, don’t expect this to stop errections. At his softest, my partners penis barely came halfway up the cage. It comes with a selection of 4 ring sizes, the smallest being too tight and the medium being the closest to a perfect fit. The ring looks as though it should be comfortable, but again the hinge lets it down and digs into the ballsack. There are 3 anti-pullout clamp devices, with a special ‘texture’. This is texture is nothing more than a miniscule amount of frosted plastic which is supposed to bond or stick to the skin to prevent it being pulled out. Even after the recommended 2 days of waiting, my partner was able to pull out with no problem at all. This was using the middle size clamp. The smaller clamp appears to be a bit dangerous, it dug into the penis and actually cut through the skin after he got an errection – keep well away from the small one. Not only was he able to pull out, but with a bit of work, and a small queeze he was able to free himself from the entire contraption.

We hope to have some videos very soon to show these inefficiencies more clearly. If you have a product that you would like us to try out please let us know and we will add a honest review as soon as we can =)

Ashley Madison infidelity site’s customer data stolen

Ashley Madison website

Customer data has been stolen from Ashley Madison, a dating website for married people who wish to cheat on their spouse.

The hackers said they had obtained information including “all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions”.

The site’s operator confirmed there had been an “intrusion” but not its extent.

One security expert said a small percentage of the site’s user account data had been published online.

The hackers, who called themselves the Impact Team, said they had managed to steal the real names and addresses of the site’s users, including those who had previously paid to “delete” their accounts.

People could hide their profiles for free, but the website charged them $19 (£12) for a “full delete”.

The hackers said the service was a “complete lie” because some personal information was kept.

Security researcher Brian Krebs said the hackers had published a small percentage of user account data and planned to post more until the website closed.

‘Criminal intrusion’

Ashley Madison says it operates in more than 50 countries and has 37 million users, more than a million of whom live in the UK.

It promotes its service with the tagline, “Life is short, have an affair.”

The website is owned by Canada-based Avid Life Media.

Avid Life Media said in a statement: “We apologise for this unprovoked and criminal intrusion into our customers’ information.

“We have been able to secure our sites, and close the unauthorised access points.

“Any and all parties responsible for this act of cyber-terrorism will be held responsible.”

In May, casual dating website Adult Friend Finder was also hacked. Thousands of its customer records were leaked online.

Cameron rushed to hospital with chronic smugness

Cameron smugnessAfter a stunning night at the polls, David Cameron was left unable to celebrate as he was rushed to hospital with a chronic case of smugness.

“No, it’s not serious,” said Doctor Greene, speaking from Mr Cameron’s palatial private hospital made of gold.

“But it is certainly one of the most chronic cases of smugness that I’ve ever seen, and speaking as a physician who exclusively treats the rich, famous, and extremely fat, that’s saying something.”

Mr Cameron runs at a very high natural level of smugness, so it is really no surprise that this election result has triggered such a chronic attack.

The attack of overwhelming smugness came on at around four in the morning, just after the Tories took Ed Balls’ constituency of Morley and Outwood.

“He was up and looking smug, very smug, smugger than usual, which is, obviously, dangerous for a man of the PM’s level of smugness,” said an aide.

“Then the Ed Ball’s result came on, and he just collapsed on the floor, giggling and repeating ‘I’m the ruddy best, I’m the ruddy best,’ over and over again. It was very scary”

Mr Cameron is expected to make a full recovery and will also be comforted by the words of support London Major Boris Johnson.

“Don’t worry Dave, I’m right here, ready to take over whenever you’re gone…for whatever reason.”

Blurred Lines jury awards Marvin Gaye family $7m

Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke perform at the Grammy Awards - 25 January 2015

A jury in the United States has ruled that the writers of Blurred Lines – one of the best-selling singles of all time – copied a Marvin Gaye track.

Jurors in Los Angeles decided that the 2013 single by Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke breached the copyright of Gaye’s 1977 hit Got To Give It Up.

The family of the late soul singer has been awarded $7.3m (£4.8m) in damages.

Thicke and Williams denied copying the hit, and their lawyer said musicians would find the ruling chilling.

Gaye died in April 1984, leaving his children the copyright to his music.

His children – Nona, Frankie and Marvin Gaye III – sued the singers in 2013. Nona wept as the verdict was read in court.

“Right now, I feel free,” she told reporters after the ruling. “Free from… Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told.”

In court, Williams had told jurors that Gaye’s music was part of the soundtrack of his youth but he insisted it was not on his mind when he wrote the song.

But the musician recognised a likeness between the songs and agreed he was “channelling… that late-70s feeling” when he co-wrote the song.

Thicke testified that he had contributed little to the writing of the song.

The hit, which earned a Grammy nomination, generated more than $16m (£10.8) in profits and made more than $5m (£3m) for both stars.

Sony PlayStation Network PS4 MTU Settings WARNING

Cybergroups have targeted Sony’s Playstation Network with a DDOS and bringing the network to its knees causing misery for gamers over the Christmas period. Slowly the network has begun to recover, but there are still issues for which we bring you a fix: If you’re still unable to connect to the PlayStation Network with your PS4 we have a solution. First and foremost, try resetting your system and then try to connect, it might take a few attempts but be patient. If your PSN still isn’t working try this: Go to Settings > Network > Settings > Network > Setup Connection > Manually > Wifi or LAN. Once you reach the MTU Settings, change it to 1473 manually. If it still doesn’t work, try resetting a couple of times more. Once the service has been restored, make sure you change the MTU back to the default 1500 to ensure your connection runs smoothly. WARNING: Do not attempt to change any proxy settings, as other ‘news’ outlets have suggested. These do nothing but add to congestion, and possibly capture your communications (and passing on account details to cyber criminals). You’re welcome

The Pirate Bay vanishes (again)

Torrent site and online copyright infringement poster child The Pirate Bay experienced a lengthy worldwide outage on Tuesaday, reportedly following the raid of a Stockholm area data center by Swedish police.

The site dropped off the web early on Tuesday and remained unavailable for much of the day, only re-emerging in the late hours with a new URL hosted under the top-level domain for Costa Rica.

However, it appears that the site is just a mirror and the search function does not work.

Swedish authorities have kept mostly mum about the raid that apparently downed the site, including such details as the exact location of the data center involved and what sort of equipment was seized.

Stockholm County Police’s national coordinator for intellectual property crime, issued only a brief statement on Tuesday, saying: “There has been a crackdown on a server room in Greater Stockholm. This is in connection with violations of copyright law.”

“Several servers and computers were seized, but I don’t want to say exactly how many,” Ingbland said, adding, “I can’t say exactly what the crime is yet.”

This certainly wouldn’t be the first time that authorities have attacked The Pirate Bay by going after its servers. Past occasions have sent the site sailing to various domains and hosting providers around the globe, where it briefly found friendly ports under such regimes as Peru, Guayana, and the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten.

The site’s personnel have come under legal pressure, as well. Cofounder Peter Sunde was released from jail last month after serving a five-month sentence for facilitating copyright infringement, and two other Pirate Bay cofounders – Hans Fredrik Lennart Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm Warg – are still locked up on various charges.

According to file-sharing news site TorrentFreak, at least one man may have been detained by police in connection with Tuesday’s raid.

Several other sites reportedly also went offline as a result of the raid in addition to The Pirate Bay, including Bayimg.com, EZTV, Istole, Pastebay.new, Suprbay.org, Torrage, and Zoink

Costa Rican legislature accidentally passes gay marriage legalization

The measure would require the president’s signature to become law.

Villalta                       Alberto Font San Jose lawmaker José María Villalta

Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly on Monday passed a measure – by accident – that could legalize same-sex civil unions as part of a larger bill, lawmakers noted on Tuesday.

Conservative lawmakers voted for the bill’s passage without recognizing the included language that could be interpreted to change the definition of marriage, according to the daily La Nación. Lawmakers immediately called for President Laura Chinchilla to veto the bill.

José María Villalta, a lawmaker from San José, inserted the language into the bill. Villalta is a member of the leftist Broad Front Party. The language confers social rights and benefits of a civil union, free from discrimination, according to La Nación.

Villalta attached the measure to a reform of the Law of Young People, which covers various social services for young people and laws governing marriage.

“During the discussion in the first debate, we explained that the Law of Young People should be interpreted with this sense of opening to gays and no one objected,” Villalta said, according to La Republica.

Conservative politicians such as Justo Orozco, a member of the evangelical National Renovation Party, slammed the measure.

“That preference is not a right,” Orozco said, according to La Nación. “It’s a stunted development of sexual identity. It can change like alcoholism, tobacco addiction.”

Carlos Avendaño, a lawmaker from another evangelical party, the National Restoration Party, threw cold water on the measure. According to La Prensa Libre, Avendaño said the measure is a mirage because the law already established that marriage unions are between a man and a woman.

“The reference that is here is for heterosexual partners,” Avendaño said.

Marco Castillo, president of the Diversity Movement, said he was optimistic about the bill’s passage. However, for civil unions to survive, it would have to survive a constitutional challenge in the court.

“It is a big step forward for gay rights in Costa Rica,” Castillo said in a phone interview.

The legislation comes one day after thousands marched for gay marriage in San José. In 2011, Chinchilla said she would not oppose gay marriage if the courts allowed, but she has not campaigned on the issue. A poll at that time said 73 percent of Costa Ricans opposed same-sex marriage.

Currently, five Latin American countries recognize same-sex unions. Argentina and Uruguay recognize gay marriage, while Brazil, Colombia, and Ecuador recognize same-sex unions, according to the Washington Post.

Nelson Mandela in permanent vegetative state

Nelson Mandela’s doctors say he is in a permanent vegetative state, CBS News  reported.

The ailing anti-apartheid icon has been on life support in a Pretoria  hospital and breathing with the help of a respirator. He checked into Mediclinic  Heart Hospital on June 8 for a recurrence of a lung infection, and his condition  has gradually worsened.

Meanwhile, a family feud over the remains of Mandela’s three children  reached a resolution Thursday when the bodies were reinterred at their original  resting site — the same place where the ailing South African revolutionary  wishes to be buried.

A family feud over the remains of  Mandela’s children ended Thursday as the bodies were returned to their original  resting place.

The bodies were laid to rest again in a ceremony that included the singing  of hymns at Qunu, Mandela’s hometown.

The burial was the culmination of an embarrassing sideshow that has  mesmerized South Africa as Mandela likely enters his final days.

“My grandfather like myself would be highly disappointed in what is  unraveling,” said Mandla  Mandela, the oldest male Mandela heir and a tribal chief.

Oamohetswe Mabitsela, 4 months old,  is placed by his mother next to a picture of Nelson Mandela outside the  Mediclinic Heart Hospital.

The grandson had moved the bodies of Makaziwe Mandela, Madiba Thembekile  Mandela, and Makgatho Mandela to his village of Mvezo — Nelson Mandela’s  birthplace — in 2011.

Fifteen of Mandela’s family members said the bodies were moved without their  consent and pursued court action to have the bodies moved.

An expert on the Xhosa culture of Mandela’s family, Mlawu Tyatyeka, said the  court case over the graves was decided quickly because the family knows that  Mandela will soon die.

The former wife of Nelson Mandela,  Winnie Mandela Madikizela, arrives at the Mediclinic Heart Hospital on July 4 in  Pretoria, where the former South African president  is  hospitalized.

“It’s not a case of wishing him to die. It’s a case of making sure that by  the time he dies, his dying wish has been fulfilled,” he said.

“We have a belief that should you ignore a dying wish, all bad will befall  you.”

Mandela’s wife said the former president is sometimes uncomfortable but  seldom in pain while being treated.

 

Richard Matheson: He is Legend

Obituary Acclaimed science fiction and horror writer Richard Matheson, who will perhaps be best remembered for his novel I Am Legend, has died at the age of 87.

Matheson was also the man behind some of the classic Twilight Zone television episodes, including 1963’s Nightmare at 20,000 Feet starring a fresh-faced William Shatner.

Tributes for the author flooded in immediately after his daughter announced on Facebook that the scribe had died.

TV actor Mark Gatiss, who has penned a number of Doctor Who episodes in recent years, said on Twitter: “RIP the great Richard Matheson. He is Legend.”

While Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright said: “If it’s true that the great Richard Matheson has passed away, 140 characters can’t begin [to] cover what he has given the sci fi & horror genre.”

Matheson was set to be given the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films’ visionary Saturn Award on Wednesday in Los Angeles. That honour will now become a posthumous award.

The academy described the writer behind classics that included The Incredible Shrinking Man and Duel, which gave Steven Spielberg his break into Hollywood, as a “singular voice in fiction, whose prolific written work is as unforgettable as the television and filmed entertainment it has inspired for more than half a century.”

Many credit Matheson as “the father of the zombie apocalypse”, whose vision was said to have hugely influenced George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead – a movie whose characters famously never once muttered the word “zombie”.

Horror author Stephen King – who dedicated his apocalyptic 2006 novel Cell to the iconic writer – once said that, without Matheson, “I wouldn’t be around.”

“He is as much my father as Bessie Smith was Elvis Presley’s mother. He came when he was needed, and these stories hold all their original hypnotic appeal.”

Matheson, who was born in Allendale, New Jersey in 1926, is survived by his wife Ruth and four children.

Jomsocial no longer ‘risk free’

Another giant of Joomla, Jomsocial is no longer ‘risk free’.

Jomsocial is a widely used social networking application for Joomla. It has recently been taken over by a new company which has pulled the $1 30-day trial soon after its takeover, and more recently removed its ‘try risk-free’ statement from its website.

Jomsocial is an application that is known for the multitude of bugs and its rather lack-lustre support. The demo on the website is basic at least and does not give you the opportunity to see how it interacts with other Joomla! addons.

There is a refund policy, but there is so much small-print that it is pretty much worthless. some of the small print includes “You’ve decided JomSocial is “Not what I need”” – how would you know if its what you need without trying it on your own website?

“You experience script conflicts with other 3rd party software connected to or installed on your Joomla website (Templates, Components, Modules, and Plugins).” Again, there is no possible way to know this without first installing the product

If you have a technical problem, you have to consult the support forum, where replies can be too slow and sometimes not relevant. Fixes often require you to delve into the code to make bug fixes and fiddle with uploading the files via FTP.

Its a shame Jomsocial have taken this approach and we can only hope that they work on updating their refund policy very soon.
