According to history, the chastity belt appeared in medieval Europe and was designed to protect her husband from cheating on his wife while he was away from home. But what are the actual goals pursued by men and women who donned this accessory? How to pit on a chastity cage?
Belt of fidelity in history
It is not known when the first chastity belt appeared. According to one of the versions, its origins were lost somewhere in slaveholding Rome: a special leather belt was put on the slaves in order to prevent pregnancy, since during its onset the slave lost her performance. According to another version, the first belts of fidelity, found by archaeologists, date from about the XIII century. They consisted of a metal frame – a bezel on the belt and plate in the perineum with slots, allowing the woman to defecate, but no more. It is believed that the belt of fidelity was most common during the Crusades, when the knights left their wives for a long time in order to save the marriage and to be sure of their faithfulness, put the forged mechanism on the lock, the key from which they took with them.
Features of ancient chastity belts
Because of the high prices, only wealthy citizens could use the belts: aristocrats and merchants;
The generally recognized masters of belt making are Italians – so far the chastity belt is called the “Venetian” or “Florentine” grille;
The initial constructions were made in such a way that a woman could relieve a natural need, but there could be no personal hygiene, which had a detrimental effect on her health;
Along with the advent of chastity belts, the masters of their hacking also appeared: among the fraudsters of that time, the service of making a duplicate key of the chastity belt was very popular (I must say it was worth the fabulous money);
However, when the jewelers took up the manufacture of the locks, everything changed: the locks were made with a secret – whenever someone tried to open it with an improvised means, they took a bite from a piece of master key, which already served as evidence of the infidelity of the lady.
Fidelity or chastity
All the same story claims that over time, the belts received a completely different purpose – to preserve the chastity of the girl before marriage. It is alleged that the girls wore a belt mother. She also kept the key, which on the day of the wedding solemnly handed over to her son-in-law as a sign of confirmation of the girl’s purity and integrity. Since virginity was especially appreciated at that time, such an approach would make it more profitable to marry a daughter and raise her status and reputation in society.
In Victorian England, the chastity belts were given another function – to prevent masturbation. In those dark times, they believed that masturbation causes blindness, baldness and hair growth on the palms. That is why the boys before bedtime put on a special mechanism that was attached to the pubic hair. In the case of even an innocent morning erection, the tweezers were pulling the hair in the groin, and the poor thing was waking up from wild pain.
Actually, it was Victorian England and her race for the invention of the “anti-masturbation suit” that we owe to the appearance of modern chastity belts for men. Of course, there is another theory that no chastity belt existed and all these were fakes of the 19th century jokers who created all this for the sake of laughter, and contemporaries not only believed but also carried away with the improvement of mechanisms.
Belt chastity game is pleasure
Meanwhile, the so-called loyalty belt still exists. Of course, it is not at all like those terrible metal structures and mechanisms that are represented in museums, but the principle of its wearing remains the same – there is a lock and key to it. Modern chastity belts have become an integral attribute of BDSM games and their diversity only confirms the relevance and popularity of this sex toy. Especially erotic looks harness on the penis or thong-belt of fidelity, made of leather or latex with additional chains and rings for decoration.
