House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device Review
House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device review by Louise Lace
Cara recently put out a call for Pleasure Panel reviewers for a selection of chastity devices she had received from House of Denial. Having locked my OH in a variety of chastity devices over the years, I jumped at the chance to lock him in a Holy Trainer. I have read many good things about Holy Trainers and was intrigued to see if they lived up to the hype.
My House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device arrived a few short days later and as always was packaged in a non distinct brown jiffy bag, you can always count on Cara to be discreet. Inside the parcel was a brown, opaque zipped pouch with Holy Trainer embossed on one side and a hand written card with Holy Trainer V2 Clear scribbled on it on the other, I’m not sure if this is a reviewer version of the packaging but a printed card would have looked much nicer.
Inside the pouch was the device sheath, a variety of 4 different sizes rings, a funny little lock and a couple of keys. Strangely there were no assembly instructions, care information, user warnings, absolutely nothing to give any hints as to how the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device goes together, comes apart or when to know if there is a problem. This means that I could not recommend this device to a complete beginner, they would be puzzled as to how to put the device on and could be at risk of an injury, lets face it, no man wants to risk an injury to his crown jewels!
Thankfully OH and I are experienced with chastity devices so other than a few struggles with the funny little lock – all of our previous devices locked with a simple padlock or temporary plastic locks – we managed to assemble the ring and sheath together without too many problems.
The rings are not round like many other devices, they are slightly oval and angle backwards to fit snugly around the testicles and shaft. OH much preferred the design of rings as they offered a more secure fit.
Before putting the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device on, my OH tried out the variety of sized rings. As I mentioned, there are 4 sizes included in the package, to find which one fitted best over his penis and testicles, the remaining 3 rings went back in the plastic pouch for safe keeping. Once happy with the fit of the ring, OH then slipped on the sheath part of the device, this was a little tricky at first as he tends to get a little, should we say, excited, when he is ordered to lock up his panty parts by his Mistress. This does make me laugh which, in all honesty, doesn’t help his predicament. Not to worry, with the threat of putting his panty parts in a bowl of ice cubes, he was swiftly able to secure his shaft in the device.
The sheath part of the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device is almost solid with just a few air holes down the length and a larger hole at the tip to allow OH to use the toilet with ease. While this device has more air holes than some of our other devices, they are quite small in comparison and this could affect the cleaning process, we will see how easy cleaning is once the device is being worn.
Carefully lining up the sheath and the ring – the two slot together like a jigsaw puzzle – we were ready to put the funny little lock in place.
The lock slides into a hole which goes through the joining bracket of the ring and the sheath. It’s worth remembering to put the key in the lock first, it helps to push the lock through the hole and is also needed to lock the locking mechanism in place. When you turn the key, the mechanism twists and prevents the lock from sliding back out of the hole. Turning the key took a few attempts as it was a bit stiff but we got there in the end. Removing the lock is a case of inserting the key and turning until the mechanism twists back into place and allows the lock to slide back out – again, this was a little stiff and took a few attempts but to OH’s relief he was soon freed.
The key for the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device is not a pretty key, we usually use padlocks that have a dinky silver key with a heart shape to slip a chain through, I usually wear the key around my neck or ankle to remind my OH that I am in control of when and if he is released. This is not possible with the key for the Holy Trainer, I am sure my work colleagues would question why I have a huge key dangling round my neck. I had to put the key in a ‘safe’ place to ensure OH did not stumble across it when I wasn’t around. This is risky as I have a memory like a sieve and it is very probable that I will loose the key at some point.
Luckily for my OH the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device came with 2 keys so I put one in our house safe, just in case, and the other in a ‘safe’ place. To help with our Mistress/sissy dynamics I continued to wear my old padlock key on my chain as a reminder of who is in charge of his erections and orgasms. I do hope Holy Trainer consider a more ‘wearable’ key in future, I know from many of my Twitter followers that a lot of key holders choose to wear the keys of their chastity partners and they too would struggle to wear the key to this device.
My OH initially wore the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device for a few hours through the day to get used to the device, he liked the way that it sat on his panty parts, it tucked his shaft downwards and prevented any signs of an obvious bump in his trousers, the ring felt semi-secure around his testicles and didn’t nip or squeeze. It did slip forward a little causing the sheath to slide down his shaft slightly so we changed the ring for a smaller size after a few hours to prevent any injuries.
Having previously worn a steel device, he found the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device quite light in weight though I thought it felt a little heavy in the hand compared to some of his other non-steel devices. OH was slightly concerned about the seam of the sheath which runs down the centre of the device, in the past with other, less expensive devices, the seam has come apart and the result was his skin being nipped by the device, not something he was particularly fond of.
I did explain that the Holy Trainer is not an inexpensive eBay device made in foreign lands and as such, it shouldn’t come apart when worn but I promised to let him take it off at semi regular intervals to check that the seam was still fully intact. I’m nice like that 😉
The House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device I received was made with clear bio-sourced resin, I do believe this device is also available in other colours. I do like clear devices as I can see his penis through the device and enjoy seeing the swell of his shaft as I tease him with words and touch.
After a few hours of wear using one of the smaller rings, we removed the device and checked for any signs of grazing or discomfort and finding everything in ship shape condition we relocked the OH and I firmly informed him that as this was a review item he would be locked for a significant length of time in order to provide a fair review. This made him whimper and me smile.
OH found sleeping in the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device device fairly comfortable. The 3″ shaft did allow for some swelling room, enough to allow blood to flow through his penis but not enough to comfortably accommodate any midnight erections. Smaller sized Holy Trainer devices are available but OH finds these really uncomfortable to sleep in and becomes fairly irritable due to disrupted sleep so I have learned to allow a little wiggle room in the sheaths of his devices.
Through the day OH was comfortable in the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device and it didn’t cause any discomfort, the snugness of the device reminded him that he was locked but did not hinder any of his usual day-to-day activities. We both noticed the lack of tinkling sound usually caused by a dangling padlock, I did miss that noise but he rather enjoyed not having to worry about sounding like an alley cat when walking around.
Cleaning the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device when worn was a little tricky due to the lack of air holes. He had to angle the jets from the shower directly at the device to ensure water went right through the sheath, this had an unwanted effect and caused him to get a little excited, much to my amusement. Every other day I allowed my OH to be unlocked for supervised showers where we were able to give the device a through cleaning. This may be an issue for key holders who do not live with their chastity partner but for us, it wasn’t too big of an issue.
Due to work commitments and an unexpected hospital stay for me, my OH wore the device for 4 weeks straight and in that time suffered no ill effects from the device. He would be more than happy to wear the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device for longer periods should I so wish.
Overall we would recommend the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device; however, as I mentioned earlier in this review, the lack of instructions and precautions would put me off recommending to a complete newbie. For those familiar with chastity devices it is ideal.
At just £34.99 this device is a fantastic price considering some similar designed devices retail for well over £100. With a few tweaks to the packaging and maybe some bigger air holes the Holy Trainer V2 would score top marks. As it stands my OH and I would rate the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device a solid 9/10.
Thank you so much to Cara and House of Denial for sending me the House of Denial Holy Trainer V2 Standard Clear Chastity Device free of charge in exchange for locking up my OH for a few weeks 😉
