No O for thirty-eight days and a wake-up, since June 18. Miss BethK isn't bothered at all though.
Well, I have discovered what might be a minor problem with the Avenger, for those thinking of purchasing the belt I am wearing.
On the other hand, this might not be construed as a problem, but a benefit. I suppose it is how you look at it. The front is pictured below (with me in it), review afterwards so you can see what I am referring to. The apparent wrinkle in my skin on the viewer's left is not caused by the belt, it is a horrible scar from long ago you don't want to hear about.
The belt itself is fourteen gauge steel, lined inside to prevent chafing. The "protective area" is actually shaped like a steel protective athletic cup, completely encasing the genitalia. The metal belt and cup can be bent by hand (with some difficulty in my case) to adjust it to fit. Thus with my oval cross-sectional shape, I was able to properly bend carefully the belt around the tops of my pelvis bones so it did not rub (the only rubbing problem I have had with the belt). (My pelvis protrudes due to my low weight.)
There is a relief tube attached to the inside of the cup, and this is where the problem I discovered may lie.
While I had the belt off over the terrific heat here in western Nebraska, I was curious how they devised the tube to be able to swing left and right and move up and down with no visible slide attachment. (The tube's position is movable to allow it to adjust to the various shapes men are found in.)
It turns out that inside the cup is riveted a small metal tab. The tab will not cause any damage. On each side of the tab are drilled two small holes: the tube is placed between them and a zip tie is zipped around the tube. The zip tie is what actually secures the relief tube to the cup.
This is not necessarily a problem: in the event the tie were to break, the tube would still stay in place until such time as you replaced the zip tie. (Based on my view of it, it would be an insignificant task.) Or if you wanted to ensure it never broke again, you could replace the zip tie with safety wire, ensuring when you clip the ends of the wire you bend them behind the metal tab so they don't scrape your genitals. Personally I think the zip tie is safer.
After this much time wearing it (about a month) I see no visible wear in the zip tie. Since the tube really doesn't move around when wearing the belt, the zip tie gets no appreciable wear.
James, still chaste for her.
