There have been arguments over the years regarding the usage of chastity belts throughout the history. Originally, chastity belt was introduced as a medieval tool that was used by the warriors to keep their wives faithful while waiting for them to return. There are ambiguous sources and opinions that support and deny the existence of such tool. But most importantly, throughout the history, chastity belts are  made mostly for women; and therefore, there was not such thing as male chastity device.

Fast forward to the modern world, we no longer care whether or not such device existed hundreds of years ago. We do, however, care about the existence of the modern chastity device to satisfy our deepest, most erotic fantasy about being owning/ controlling and being owned/ controlled by our significant others. Modern chastity devices come in both version: for male and female.

MALE CHASTITY DEVICE

           

 

Male chastity device is pretty self explanatory. The simplest form is made in the shape of penis cage, where the device simply covers the penis, preventing it from getting an erection. It is then held by a ring that is connected to the cage and sits at the base of the penis, behind the scrotum area. A more classic, Florentine design comes with a belt attach to the penis cage and the ring; this device is connected through the front and the back part of the belt. Some version comes with cages that cover the penis as well as the testicles.

Some of the most secured male chastity belts are made of stainless steel. But in the modern days, many people prefer chastity cage that are made of plastic, polycarbonate or even silicone due to the cost and lightness of the products. Most of these devices come with padlocks and keys. Not only it enhances the feeling of control and being controlled, such design also ensures that the belt/ cage is stable and secure.

FEMALE CHASTITY DEVICE

           

Most female chastity devices are made in the form of a belt. Similar to the male version, the device simply makes sure that a woman is unable to pleasure herself through any form of contact with the genital area. Female chastity belt are often made of stainless steel, silicone and leather. However, it is important to note that leather is hard to clean, porous and unhygienic overall. The best chastity belt you could get for your female sub would be made of good quality stainless steel.

WHY DO PEOPLE USE CHASTITY DEVICES

These days, chastity devices are popular among couples who enjoy experimenting with BDSM and kinky sex. Chastity cages and belts, both for men and women, could have some advantages, such as :

A. SHOWING OWNERSHIP AND POWER

When wearing either a chastity cage or a chastity belt, the wearer often gives up their lock to someone who has control over their sexuality. In a Dom/ Sub relationship, where the Dominant partner owns the other person, chastity device is a way to show that the Sub sexuality is reserved only for his/ her partner.

B. HOLDING OFF SEX AND PLEASURE THAT WOULD LEAD INTO WAY BIGGER PLEASURE AFTERWARDS

According to the Marginal Diminishing Return Theory, anything that we have too often and too much will not serve us as much pleasure as it used to. This alone could be the perfect reason for a sub–or anyone–to try the chastity belts. When held off for sometime, sexual needs become stronger. And therefore, when the person actually has the chance to experience it, the type orgasm that he/ she experience would be mind-blowing.

C. INCREASING EXCITEMENT AND AROUSAL

Even though holding off sex might sounds frustrating, there is something extremely sensual about thinking and imagining sex without being able to execute. Most people who have experienced using these chastity devices claim that during the time that the belts are on, they usually couldn’t stop thinking about their genitals. I believe going on for a whole day wearing a chastity belt would always remind me about my partner, to whom I give up the key to my belt. This can also enhance the power of dominance in the fantasy of sub/ dom role play that some people enjoy.

D. ANTI RAPE DEVICE (FOR FEMALE)

Yes, you read it right. Some females actually utilize the chastity belt to prevent others to take care of them when they are unconscious. There would be some days where you might black out from alcohol or other reason; and in this case, a chastity belt would prevent you from any non-consensual intercourse.
