Someone recently remarked that someone needed a chastity belt, which got me thinking. Do they still exist? I think of them as something knights put on their ladies when the went errant...but apparently they really didn't show up until until the 15th century.
They were designed to prevent sexual intercourse, masturbation, and rape. Early models were clunky metal locking affairs. There are male and female versions, usually with holes to allow urination.
Most units today are locked with a padlock, which may be secured to prevent its being attacked with bolt cutters...sheesh...
Recently in the news, from Wikipedia :
A British man spent over 160,000 Rand for one made in South Africa, as a wedding gift for his bride-to -be. (I see this as a red flag for this marriage.)
One woman set off metal detectors in an airport. Her husband made her wear the belt when she went on vacation without him. (Another red flag).
