What is a Chastity Device
A chastity device is a metal device that locks around a wife or daughter’s genital area and is designed to prevent sexual intercourse or masturbation. Such belts were historically designed for women for the first time in the Middle Ages, apparently for the purpose of chastity, to protect wife or daughter’s from rape or to dissuade women and their potential sexual partners from sexual temptation. The idea of the chastity belt was popularized during the Crusades when men left their wives for years to fight in wars. Modern versions of the chastity belt are predominantly, but not exclusively, used in the BDSM community, and chastity belts are now designed for male wearers in addition to female wearers.
Materials of Chastity Devices
The material of the chastity belt you need to take into consideration when you make a choice. You should be aiming for 100% silicone or stainless steel which is the safest to wear and clean. Stay away from leather, TPE/TPR rubber, or anything else. Lots of belt makers and kink lovers adore this material as it looks awesome. However, they’re highly porous and impossible to sterilize. They also are not appropriate for long-term use.
How Does a Chastity Belt Work in BDSM
Chastity belts are very amazing today and are frequently used in BDSM play in consensual relationships– for things like controlling actions or behaviors, maintaining rules, training submissive, giving rewards, etc. One person consensually taking control and the other consensually giving up their power. The one who holds the key is the one with the power to define their partner’s pleasure.
Why Do People Wear Chastity Devices
Control. A power exchange, with one person holding full control over the other’s actions and behaviors. You’re forced to seek sexual release.
Tease & Denial. As for pleasure, if someone doesn’t want to get into hardcore BDSM, there’s the simple act of preventing masturbation and sexual gratification.
Humiliation & Torture. Some people find the humiliation and restrictions highly erotic.
Aesthetic Eroticism. Besides being tied to tease, denial and humiliation, the simple act of wearing one or the look of it can be a turn on.
