Latowski Chastity Belt -- The FittingSubmitted by: Anonymous
After many years of reading and enjoying Altairboy, especially the non-fiction articles, I now think itís time for me to give something back. I recently traveled from the USA to Germany to be fitted with a Latowski male chastity belt. These are my observations for anyone who might wish to follow my path.
First, the Latowski Chastity Belt in a beautiful work of art. I have always admired the bikini style with the sculptured hip plates. I have read that the silicone penis chamber is feels much like the vagina of a woman. This I had to experience.
For me the journey began five month earlier. I used the postal address found on the Latowski web site and mailed a letter to Mario Latowski. A month later, I received a packet of information including a colorful pamphlet, an English translation with price list, and map. From this information, I wrote a second letter scheduling an appointment for a male chastity belt fitting. Another month passed and I received a confirmation letter. An e-mail address and telephone number were included in the confirmation. Anyone wanting a Latowski product must understand Mario Latowski only speaks German and that correspondence must be translated which takes time.
The true purpose of my trip was a European vacation with my wife. The chastity belt fitting was a side trip. Airfare from USA to Europe during the off season costs about $350 per person/round trip. I flew into Amsterdam which is a city full of English speaking, friendly people. Frankfurt, Germany, would have been another good entry point. A hotel or B&B reservation after such a long flight is a must. The next day I used a Euro-Rail pass to travel to Germany. The European train system is far better than anything we have in the USA.
The map I received from Mario Latowski showed that he lived in Bonen, a small town just east of Dortmund, Germany. Dortmund is a large city in west, central Germany. Using the key word "Dortmund" I found a city web site that listed hotels. Using the telephone I called the City Hotel in Dortmund and made a reservation for one night. Traveling to Europe is not hard. Any travel agent can help you or in my case I did the planning myself using the internet. Most people, especially in hotels, speak English. I always confirm and re-confirm my reservations and then expect the unexpected. Using a map I had printed from the Dortmund web site, my wife and I walked ten minutes through the city to our hotel. For dinner, my wife and I found a fast food establishment and pointed at what looked good. We paid with Euros which are almost equal to the US dollar. The people were friendly and the food was good.
The next morning I walked to the train station and showed the information agent a piece of paper with the word "Nordbogge". I printed the name to insure there would be no errors. Nordbogge is the name of the small train station nearest Mario Latowski. I received a print out showing the track and time of the next train. Using my Euro-Rail pass, I traveled about 15 minutes to Nordbogge which was nothing more than a platform and a parking lot. Using the map I had received from Mario Latowski, I walked 20 minutes watching the signs for the correct street. After finding the street, I looked for the correct house number. A sign with the name Latowski told my that I was at the right place.
Mario Latowski lives in a small, rural village. The country consists of agriculture fields and farm animals. The houses are yards apart. Marioís two-story house was nice, clean, and modern. Chickens across the street provided the background noise. Mario, expecting me, answered the door. I found him to be a good looking man in his lower 30ís with a thin build. He did not speak English, but I could tell that he was a friendly, good natured person. He quickly made me feel welcomed. In the house I met his wife, Mona, a beautiful, dark headed woman who also did not speak English. In the Latowski pamphlet, Mona is the woman on the right in the picture. She too made me feel most welcome. The third person in the house was Iris, a beautiful young woman in her lower 20ís who spoke English and was there to translate. With the help of Iris, language was never a problem.
Mario is a man who loves to work with metal. He is a gifted craftsman. In his house are examples and pictures of his creativity. Most interesting to me were stainless steel female corsets, bras, and a leotard or body suit. The metal body suit covered only the womanís torso leaving her head, arms, and legs bare. The metal body suit was displayed in an open position, flat on an art frame. The front portion was displayed on the left while the back portion was displayed on the right. The two halves hinged in the middle and could be closed and locked, encasing a womanís body. This was only one of many items on display.
Mona, his wife, retreated into another room leaving me with Mario and Iris. The first thing they did was to offer me a drink of beer, coke, coffee, tea, or water. I asked for water which was my first and only mistake. All Europeans don't understand that Americans drink only tap or clear water. To them it would be an insult to their guest to go out into the kitchen a draw just regular water from the sink. Therefore, I received mineral water or water with carbon dioxide gas. To me it tasted like it had come out of an old boot. All across Europe I had to say, "Water, no gas".
Mario next took me into another room where he had models of his chastity belts. He, with Iris translating, talked me through all of the aspects of the belt. Since I had read all the information that I could find on the internet, there was little that surprised me. The atmosphere throughout my visit was one of business. I would have loved to have asked Mario how he had become interested in chastity belts, Iris is she had ever been encased in that steel body suit, or Mona if she had ever been locked in a chastity belt for an extended period of time. However, such questions would not have been proper and were not asked. I did ask how many belt did he produce and how many were for women? The answer was that he produces about one belt a week and that few were for women. I failed to ask how many women ordered steel corsets and bras?
The next step was for me to put on a "sports dress" which was an outfit that a college wrestler might wear. I kept on my socks, underwear, and T-shirt. Mario selected a chastity belt designed to measure the customer. The belt lacked the silicone part for my penis and the side locks. Instead the belt laced up on the sides. For the next 20 minutes, Mario examined all aspects of the belt and took many notes.
I asked Mario, about customer problems with the belt. He told be that large amounts of weight gain or lose could be a problem. The belt has four locking positions, two on each side. This allows for some increase and decrease in the size of the belt. If the customer experiences a tremendous weight change, then a return visit is necessary to exchange the side panels to increase or decrease the size of the belt. A customer that is too fat or too skinny could also be a problem. I understood about being too fat, but was surprised to learn that being too skinny. Mario explained that if a person is too skinny, the belt will rub against the hip bone which could cause pain. The best customer, Mario went on to say, has a waist between 80 to 90 cm (31.5 inches to 35.5 inches). I discovered that I'm above the desirable average by about three inches.
The last thing to do in the fitting process was to select a silicone chamber size for my penis. Mario had three models: small, medium, and large. The size referred to the penis diameter or thickness. This turned out to be the most difficult thing I had to do. I knew that I was a small or medium. Mario told me that 70% of his customers are small while 30% are medium. I almost ordered both small and medium, but ended up asking for small. He told me that I could always order a larger size later.
As I talked with Mario, I discovered his true love is steam locomotives. I could see him wanting to building a life-size model of a coal burning, steam engine that could pull a 100 car freight train up a steep incline. He truly loves anything metal.
I was told that an invoice would be mailed to me and that a bank transfer of the money would be fine. The finished belt would arrive by mail in about three months. Iris drove me back to the train station and I caught the next train back to Dortmund and continued my European vacation with my wife. The entire time with Mario was about an hour and a half. I would have been shorter if I had not spent so much time talking about steam trains. Overall, the experience was very pleasant. I'm looking forward to receiving the belt and will inform the Altairboy readers of my impressions. I'm convinced that having the craftsman measure you is much better than self-measurement. I believe I will get a much better fit which is important when the chastity belt lock goes "click" and you no longer posses the key.
